Keeping it Real With the Housewives of ATL: “We’re Not Friends”Published by Dior Noir on Tuesday, December 1, 2009 at 9:00 am.
The second season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is over and apparently so are the housewives’ interactions with each other! We caught up with the crew at the Soul Train Awards in Atlanta where Kandi Burruss and Sheree Whitfield told us that (surprise, surprise) when the cameras stop rolling so do their “friendships.”
“It’s a working relationship,” Sheree told BET.com. “We don’t hang out. I don’t wanna say it’s just for the show. We were put on the show and we were not friends so it’s something that you have to build. Am I saying that would never happen, no I’m not saying that? But right now, it’s just a working relationship.”
We saw how Sheree works when she dealt with that party planner (veins popping, neck swinging, “who gon check me boo” screaming) and that sounds about right. Must’ve been an average day in the office when she rearranged Kim Zolciak’s wig?
“We do not make up things for TV,” Kandi told BET.com. “The arguments are real, the bonds…I don’t know about the bonds. I mean, of course because we have to be around each other for the show, you know? I don’t know if we would always hang out that much.”
We knew their TV-edited friendships were as fake as their “housewives” titles; at least they’re keeping it real! Then again, these ladies never were good at faking the funk.
