Kandi Burruss said she’s unfazed by Chuck Smith and the way he cheapened the relationship that the two of them once had.
“We definitely was in a relationship,” said Kandi who shared that she used to be introduced as his “girlfriend” and had keys to Chuck’s house.
On a recent episode of “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” Kandi told Chuck’s wife that the two dated and Chuck was one suitor Kandi’s mom actually liked. According to Kandi it was more than a fling and Chuck was a frequent visitor at her home.
However, Chuck disputed that story, relegating Kandi and co-star Phaedra Parks to “friends with benefits” status.
“You weren’t my girlfriend he clarified to Phaedra,” leaving no doubt about his take on it. The attorney had previously described their relationship as “dating,” but Chuck didn’t give it that much credit.
He also described Kandi as one of his “team,” but did admit that he made her feel special by spending time with her mom and aunts.
“He said he was taking advantage of a young girl…he really went out of his way to take advantage,” said Kandi on Big Tigger’s V-103 radio show. “That was deep.”
Though Kandi said she’s not giving Chuck’s comments much attention, she took issue with him suggesting that she was “popular” with lots of men during that era.
“I’ve moved on, but I would appreciate it if he’d stop…,” she said. “On one hand, he tried to make it sound like I was dating all these people, but on the other hand, he felt the need to make me feel special. Can you get your story together? Stop lying.”
While Chuck may have been trying to humiliate the “RHOA” stars, fans of the show took to Twitter to blast him for his comments about Kandi and Phaedra, especially considering he’d just spoken to kids at the Boys & Girls Club and asked them to respect their moms and sisters.
