Kandi Burruss says NeNe Leakes, not Kenya Moore, is the shadiest one of all

Kenya Moore has competition when it comes to who was the shadiest housewife on season six of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta." While it may seem that Kenya is the housewife that's hated on the most by her co-stars, fellow housewife Kandi Burruss has come out saying that it wasn't Kenya but another woman who schemed and started the most drama. As reported by Wetpaint Entertainment on Wednesday, May 7, when asked by Bravo TV who she thought won the "Most Shady" award for season six, Kandi, without hesitation, said that NeNe Leakes won it.

Kandi's response likely has to do with her anger at NeNe for what she said about Mama Joyce. As viewers saw, during part three of the reunion show, Kandi called out NeNe for saying that her mother was "low in the gutter." When NeNe refused to apologize, saying that she didn't believe that she said anything wrong, Kandi yelled out that NeNe's problem is exactly that she doesn't ever feel as if she's doing anything wrong.

While Kandi has had a tumultuous relationship with her mother because of her mother's strong, and sometimes violent, disapproval of her now husband Todd Tucker, Kandi has always defended her mother, both to the viewers and those in her personal life. So it comes as no surprise that she would come out strongly against a person who would speak of her mother in such a way, even if that person is as strong of a personality as NeNe.

Contrary to what Kandi Burruss may believe, NeNe Leakes doesn't actually believe that she has no faults. In her blog post about season six of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," NeNe wrote that no one is perfect and that she takes full responsibility for her actions. Of course, she still went on to criticize and slam her co-stars, saying that some of them are snakes in designer clothing. She even seemed to take pride in throwing the most shade, ending her blog with, "I said what I said and I won’t be changing it #SHADE."
