Kandi Burruss shares who she remains friends with even when not filming

It's no surprise that not all of the housewives on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" keep in touch when not filming the show, considering that many of their group outings seem so forced. As reported by All About The Real Housewives on Thursday, Jan. 23, Kandi Burruss, while on Bethenny Frankel's talk show, revealed that she and NeNe Leakes don't speak when the Bravo camera crews aren't around.

The person with whom Kandi has a real friendship with is Phaedra Parks.

“I mean, we’re cool. I mean, we don’t hangout like I do with Phaedra. Phaedra’s my girl. Nene and I, we’re cordial. When we’re around each other, we can laugh and joke, and have fun when we’re in the group, but like when we all break off, we don’t really keep in touch with each other," she said.

She even stays in contact with Kenya Moore more than she does with NeNe.

"I hear from Kenya throughout — all the time. You know we text every now and then, you know," she added.

While she didn't bring up Cynthia Bailey, it's likely that she's distant from Cynthia as well when not filming "The Real Housewives of Atlanta." Cynthia and NeNe are such good friends that Cynthia was one of NeNe's bridesmaids for her second wedding to Gregg Leakes.

As for Porsha Stewart, she had a very touching heart-to-heart with Kandi this season regarding the demise of her marriage to Kordell Stewart so it would be surprising if she didn't keep in touch with Kandi outside of filming.
