Kandi Burruss and Tameka ‘Tiny’ Harris appeared on ‘Watch What Happens Live,’ and that same ole question popped up; Will escape ever reunite? Kandi has been asked this question for years and she exclaims that their inital break up was resolvable for them to have a reunion until Tameka Scott insinuated that she slept with Jermaine Dupri to get the group ahead of the game. She told Angle Yee the following back in 2010 verbatim:
“But just like anybody, sometimes you can work with people and you be like, hmm I wonder how he is in the bedroom, you know, and you just try it out… we hung out, we was friends, like playing pool, talking trash and then you know you hear somebody say yeah I’m a beast, I’m this, I’m that, you know how you can be around your friends talking about sex or whatever and then you be thinking like, I wonder is it that good, you know? Let’s be realistic, it wasn’t me trying to get anything out of the situation. We already had hit records. We already had hits. It wasn’t like I was trying to do it to get somewhere. It was just out of curiosity.”
Understandably, Kandi was pissed by the defaming/slandering statement. She says that what Tameka said was not true. Kandi admits she did have a relationship with Jermaine, but their relationship did not break up the group; nor was their relationship established to put the girl group in good graces with Jermaine. After the Tameka made her statement Kandi said the following as a rebuttal:
When she did that it was really kinda foul to me and that’s really the reason why I would never go back to the group because when somebody just straight lies…and then she tried to add some whole other stuff that was totally false. When I had talked to her after it happened and she called to apologize to me, I said you know what, you call and apologizing to me but you went on radio in NY to say this about me so everything that you put out there, nobody knows you apologizing right now. Apologize publicly if you want me to take this seriously. Don’t say it to me after you done put all this craziness out there about me.”
With all that said, again responded that she will not be included in a reunion with escape until Tameka publicly admits she and apologizes. (S/N: It’s 12:15am and Bravo hasn’t posted the video of Kandi saying this yet.) Will post later.
Kandi Burruss Will NOT be in an Escape Reunion Until Apologies are Made PUBLICLY
Tameka knows she needs to make that happen. She knows she needs the money. Kandi’s good. Womp
