LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – The Phaedra Parks, Kim Zolciak, and Kandi Burruss feud is widening, even just weeks before Kim and Kandi’s shows debut on the same night, LALATE can exclusively report. The three women are not just involved in a lawsuit. There are also bickering over programming as well.
First, Kandi Burruss has been working for months to get The Kandi Factory onto Bravo. But Kandi was upset that she was put on the same night as Kim. Kandi, much like Rachel Zoe this month, was unhappy about being put on the same night as one of he foes. Kandi was polite about the matter when asked several weeks ago. She said “at first I thought it wasn’t going to be right. But they did their research and they said it worked.”
Second, Burruss thinks that she can be seen as an alternative to American Idol. She said “I was thinking oh my God, is American Idol still going to be on. ‘No, Idol ends right before your show starts’ [Bravo] said.” But one person disagrees. That is Kim Zolciak.
Kim has been exchanging tweets with Melissa Rose Louch and Matthew Solomon in recent weeks, LALATE can report. Melissa and Matthew appeared on the Kandi Factory Special. They claim that Burruss is not a fostering mentor like she appears on the show. Rather they have been telling Kim “We BOTH were left high and dry by her.”
Finally, as reported previously, Kim is being sued by Kandi who is represented by Phaedra Parks. This week, Phaedra Parks’ workout video dominates the RHOA telecast. But Phaedra is also helping Kandi sue her former RHOA cast member. “Without Plaintiffs’ authorization, license or consent, Plaintiffs’ Sound Recording embodying a performance of Plaintiffs’ Composition was commercially released as a single record (“Infringing Single”), on or around September 29, 2009, by Defendant TuneCore in agreement with Defendant Zolciak.”
Ironically, Kenya Moore this week told news that she like Kim Zolciak, not Phaedra. But Phaedra claims that she isn’t using Kandi to insult Kenya on screen. Phaedra says “Since he and my husband met, they have enjoyed a blossoming friendship. When he and my husband spoke as we were en route to Kandi’s party, there was no reason to call anyone to alert them that he was coming as he was their invited guest. Please know that Apollo and I would never invite anyone to someone else’s home as that is socially tacky and uncouth.”
