As of late, most of Kandi Burruss’ beefs have involved her “Real Housewives of Atlanta” friends and enemies. But a few years ago, she got into a heated online beef with Usher’s ex-wife, Tameka Raymond. Now the two ladies have finally ended their feud.
Burruss and Raymond came together last night on Burruss’ “Kandi Koated Nights,” during which Burruss explained that the beef started in 2010 when she appeared on “Watch What Happens Live.” When producers asked Burruss to name a celebrity crush, she wanted to name a successful Black man and chose to name Usher.
However, when Raymond got wind of Burruss’ interview, she blasted her and the two had a falling out.
Last night, Raymond explained why she took Burruss’ interview so hard, saying that at the time of the interview she still had hope that she and Usher could work things out.
“For one, my breakup was very fresh at the time. The scars were very wide open at the time. I still was getting a few kisses at the time. When you break up with someone and someone you guys know together mutually kind of puts it out there like ‘that’s my celebrity crush,’ my thought was, ‘well, how long has this crush been happening?’ ” Raymond explained. “We sat at a repast together. I wouldn’t say we were friends, but as your associate, God forbid you and Todd don’t work out, I would never get on TV and be like, ‘my crush is Todd,’ ” Raymond added. “And it felt like because he was local it was kind of like a ‘let me put this out there so that maybe he’ll grab it at one point.’ ”
Burruss explained that she could somewhat understood how she felt so hurt.
“As you’re sitting here saying it now, I guess I can understand how you felt. But for me, it was like, ‘what the f— is she talking about?’ ” Burruss said.
Although Raymond refused to back down on Usher being a bad choice, she admitted that it’s all water under the bridge now.
“It was a long time ago and it’s past us. And guess what, community property is community property,” Raymond said.
Well, we’re glad that Raymond and Burruss can finally be cordial with each other again, especially since both Usher and Raymond have moved on.
