Just when you thought Kandi and Phaedra had settled their feud–it continued. After last night’s episode of RHOA, the drama apparently resurfaced.
As we all know, Kandi and Phaedra’s beef has been going on for some time now. According to Phaedra, it all stems back to Kandi not being there for her when she was going through her marital issues with husband Apollo. She also mentioned that she felt as if Kandi and Todd were siding with Apollo, due to the couple agreeing to keep Apollo’s motor bike in their garage. Throughout that time period, Phaedra became close with Porsha and Nene–which led Kandi to believe that she was letting the two ladies get in her ear and come between their friendship.
Kandi and Phaedra both had a discussion–clearing the air, but unfortunately, that wasn’t the end of it. Back in 2012/2013, Todd produced Phaedra’s workout DVD–and from what Todd says, he’s still waiting on a final check. He says Phaedra still owes him a little over $8,000, but on the other hand, Phaedra claims that she paid him a full total of $30,000 already.
Two episodes ago, Phaedra, along with Porsha and friend Shamea, were discussing the workout DVD issues. The three ladies were having a general conversation about the situation overall, and Don Juan (Kandi’s manager), so happen to overhear Porsha asking if Phaedra and Kandi’s issue was really over the husband not getting his coins. Don Juan then proceeded to jump in to Kandi’s defense. The next day, Shamea–who was present in the conversation, brought the news to Kandi.
According to Kandi, she feels as though Porsha has been taking sides with Phaedra. She also went on to say that Porsha is believing the hype and Phaedra wasn’t that sad when Apollo went away, because their marriage was already on the rocks.
Later in the episode, Phaedra set up a meeting with Todd–as seen on last night’s episode. Let’s just say, homeboy came prepared. Todd pulled out documents, receipts, the whole nine. During the confessionals, Phaedra said some pretty harsh things–indicating that Todd needed the money, due to failed TV shows. She then went on to mention Kandi giving him an ‘allowance’.
Shortly after the episode aired, Kandi took to Instagram to clear the air about Phaedra’s false allegations. She stated:
In 2015 My husband @todd167 had 3 shows that he was executive producer on to air on 3 different networks. People lie but credits don’t. Check the credits! We’re trying to move past this petty bs about this workout DVD but it’s always tough to watch the drama play out today over things we’ve supposedly worked out already. I just want to make things clear for people who are watching this episode of RHOA. My husband is great at what he does & he’s been successful at it. People always talk shit on this show but I hate when they try to discredit him with lies. Let me just clear up something for y’all. Todd & Phaedra talked years ago when she was pregnant with Dylan about him helping her with production for her pregnancy DVD. He was doing it as a friend because he said they could do it way cheaper than the company she worked with on her 1st workout DVD. She approved the budget & she paid the first 2 payments but never paid the third for whatever reason. This was well before Apollo went to jail. Todd sent final invoice emails but there was just excuses & no payment. I told him not to worry about it & give her time. But now years have passed. You know how it is when you have a friend who owes you money but they come around with new shit all the time but never mentions your money… That’s why he was irritated. So to everyone who is coming at us in the chat box saying my husband waited for her husband to go to jail to ask for his money as if he was scared to ask, that is absolutely not true. He’s was asking long before. Just never got all his money. Simple…. And Todd was never being mean or disrespectful to her. He always remained cordial. The video was shot & finalized in 2013. She was suppose to give him the photo she wanted to put on the DVD menu & final payment back then…. It’s 2016 people. I hope this gives y’all some clarity. #NoShade #AllFacts
Moments later, Kandi also took her ranting to Twitter:
And, of course, you know our girl Kenya had something to say!
We really hope that Kandi and Phaedra can settle their issues! It’s never good to see strong friendships break apart.
