Kandi Burruss did an interview with Eddie Levert last month where she revealed that working with Boyz II Men was her worst experience in the industry. Since then, group member Wayna Morris heard about it and pretty much told her she needed to worry about being a housewife and dismissed what she had to say. She addressed the ordeal again in a 16 minute video uploaded to her Youtube channel.

“I did so happen to see just a little clip of what Wanya said on, I guess his interview that he was doing, and clearly he did not understand why I was offended. Because the way he told the story is not how I felt okay. And then I noticed he tried to throw a little shade at the end, you need to be a housewife honey, but it’s all good.”

Kandi added that her respect for Boyz II Men as a group doesn’t negate her experience. “I love the group Boyz II Men as far as them being artists, I think they’re amazing and I have no shade about them, their career, or anything like that. But what I will say is I did have a bad experience.”

Things went awry, she says, when it came to discuss their money. “I just said ‘hey guys, you know, how do you normally do your splits?’ And so, instantly [their] attitude shifted.”

When it came time to talk about compensation for Good Guy, she says someone in the group called her manager and said she had some nerve saying, “And I can’t believe she even fixed her mouth to ask us about some splits.”

She did say that it’s no love lost but it’s life, it’s history and that’s what happened. “Since then, you know, I mean I definitely have seen them, you know. We definitely have [spoken]. So it’s not like a thing of me holding grudges. But if someone asked me what was my worst experience, I’m sorry that is the truth. And you can feel how you want to feel. But maybe you don’t realize, or maybe you don’t even remember Wanya how you came off at that time but you did. And those things were said, and I did take it that way, you know. I didn’t imagine it, okay. I did not imagine it and it definitely happened. It was disrespectful as f*ck!”

As for what Wayna thought of it all, he said “We’ve been taught you write [a song] and you split [songwriting credits] down the middle, that way there’s no discrepancies… we’re from the old school. We’re from the ‘aye, you write a lyric, I’ll write a lyric’… It’s really about just building this whole thing together.”

“[Kandi] can’t get on here and sing better than Jayna Brown. She can’t get on here and sing better than Liamani [Segura]… but I respect her opinion and I respect what she says.”

She’s also going to be starring in yet another Bravo spinoff, a well deserved project given that she’s currently the longest running castmember of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. The show will be focusing on her Old Lady Gang restaurant and her staff. Bravo said in a statement, “Everyone at OLG has a passion ― be it for dancing, comedy or just to follow in Kandi’s mogul footsteps, and these dreams can get in the way of running food and ensuring customers don’t leave those dreaded one-star Yelp reviews. And the fact that some are single and constantly flirting with the cute clientele ― and each other ― doesn’t exactly help things either.” This makes her 4th spinoff with the network with the first 3 being “The Kandi Factory,” “Kandi’s Wedding” and “Kandi’s Ski Trip.”

And lastly, the thought of leaving the Real Housewives of Atlanta has crossed her mind. She told The Jasmine Brand in a recent interview, “You just contemplate, like, I don’t know, ‘When is your time?’ It’s not like it’s not like a definite answer, you know what I mean. It is stressful at times. It is a lot going on, you know, but I do love the fans. I love the support of the fans.”

We’re just happy to see Kandi’s continued growth. Her tenacity and ability to bend with the industry has added shelflife many of her peers have not been privy to having.
