Phaedra Parks and Kandi Burruss’ friendship had already endured several ups and downs during season seven of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” and during the latest season of the show their friendship didn’t fare much better as they squabbled over Burruss and Todd Tucker helping Apollo Nida while in prison, as well as Parks’ money battle with Tucker over a fitness video. However, things ended on a particularly sour note this season when the Feds paid a visit to Burruss’ home to retrieve some of Nida’s belongings. In the wake of the visit from the Feds, Burruss has claimed that she was suspicious as to whether Parks called the Feds on her or not and now Parks has decided to respond.

As previously reported, the Feds paid a visit to Burruss and Tucker’s home late last year two retrieve two motorbikes of Nida’s that they had been keeping in their garage while Nida serves his eight-year prison sentence for fraud and identity theft. Although Parks denied that she had anything to do with the Feds taking the bikes, Burruss recently appeared on “Watch What Happens Live” and said she was suspicious of Parks.

“The thing was, I really didn’t know … I didn’t know if it was because of the TV show or if she was upset, I didn’t know … The timing of it was so weird,” Burruss said.

According to media reports, Parks recently spoke about Burruss’ suspicions and questioned her estranged friend’s logic and her definition of friendship.

“If you have friends that you think would do something like that to you, why would you come to my Christmas event? Why would you allow me to come visit you in the hospital after you had your baby? And then, why would you allow me to throw you a baby shower?” Parks remarked about Burruss.

And in a new clip of part one of the three-part reunion special, which begins this Sunday, it looks like Burruss and Parks have more to argue about as they end up squabbling over whether or not Parks has paid Tucker for the work he did on her unreleased fitness DVD.

“At this point, I’ve tried to make amends and he has been paid all his money,” Parks said.

When host Andy Cohen brought up the point that Tucker said in the season finale that he hadn’t been fully paid, Burruss chimed in and said, “Well, that’s since they finished all of their business last week.”

“Whatever, honey. He has been paid of his money, all the checks have went through and I still don’t have a video I could commercially release,” said Parks in response.

As we said before, we’re not sure that Parks and Burruss will ever be close friends again considering how long this feud has been going on between them. Perhaps they should get some advice from NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey on how to make peace?
