Kandi Burruss Defends Moving on From Xscape


On Sunday Kandi Burruss admitted she was not recording new music with Xscape despite their reuniting and going out on tour [click here if you missed that].

Kandi defends her decision...

Kandi Burruss tells People Magazine.
“It wasn’t a planned reunion.”
“What happened was a network was going to do an unauthorized movie about us, and of course I’m not going to let somebody just take my legacy. So I called my group members and we were all able to have a conversation to start trying to get our story told the right way.”
“I was like, I need a public apology. She’s going to have to say to the world that the stuff that she said about me was a lie. And so in doing that — we did it on the radio — and the radio disc jockey, he’s like, ‘Oh, Xscape is back!’ I was like, ‘Xscape is not back!’ All of a sudden we started getting all these offers to perform and do shows, so I just went with the flow for the moment.”
“It’s always drama. We all think differently when it comes to handling business, or at least, the three of them think differently than me. It’s always them three against me, and I feel like I’m always made to be the villain. It’s really irritating and stressful.”

I'm here for that movie, but khandi didn't want those Ts coming out. On that drama stuff she needs to build a bridge and get over it.!

Just an observation said...

This is why LaTocha should keep quiet with the hater comments. They aren't even on the same page with reasons why they aren't getting along. This shows the disharmony even more. They knew Kandi didn't want to do the shows but because fans and media pushed and wanted it she felt obligated. Then she should go back to her life and move on.

Sooo when she said to Andy on the reunion that HER group Xscape was getting back together she lied?
Basically what she is saying is that SHE LIED to the girls and agreed to a reunion to get a public apology about being a skank and fucking a father and son to be the most relevant of the group and after she got her apology she said she wasn't going do it?Is this why Tiny was so pissed on WWHL and didn't say but two words?
Now she's fucking over Tiny and saying it's always them 3 against her? She only reached out to get their stories "straight"?
The DJ started the reunion rumors and there was nothing she could do or say to stop them?
Kandi is wack as shit right now and playing herself and begging for some fucked up karma.
She doesn't want those girls to eat because she is jealous. But she can put Porsha in a play. But she can write a song for Kim and Kim jerk her and she still goes out of her way to kiss her ass.
She can make Don Juan and Carmel answer to Todd and have to get the restaurant together at the last minute because Tiny Tucker didn't know what the fuck he was doing.

It's all gonna come back to her just because she still mad got outted as a smut.
Why would that girl just make up that rumor?
Kandi can keep playing find the g spot with Rasheeda Frost while Kurt and Tiny Tucker sleep with women they truly deem attractive.
Kandi need to work on her weave game also, always see her lumpy ass braids up under her wigs and shit and get some castor oil since she stay scratching that dry scalp while she shoveling food in her face.
Too bad everybody can see Todd's disgust for her but her.

If it's always 3 of them against her it's probably a sign. Tiny is supposed to be her friend so if Tiny isn't backing her that says a lot.

@ 1:14pm all rumors have bit of truth to them...kandi had to do something for her to urgently reach out to her arch enemies to get "the story straight." if it was just a rumor who cares about the movie. i mean i like xscape and they never got their due props, mostly because they didn't have the look/polish of say an En Vogue...but her being dramatic about her "legacy" these women mostly known in the black community, and mostly still "kicking it" because of their black woman fanbase. she ain't that serious. and yes, foul of her to throw tiny under the bus. tiny doesn't need the money anymore than she does, probably even less. at least ti has two careers rapper/actor unlike todd. tiny probably truly misses singing and reconnecting with the sisters. she worked hard to play middle person keep peace even all these years, and kandi just kicks her to the curb. kandi needs to slow her roll because i but tiny probably has even worse stuff on her goofy ass.

Like Xscape, but they are no TLC.

@1:26 they didn’t have the look, polish or TALENT that En Vogue had.

Why is she trying to make us care???? She can't fucking sing or dance. She should be happy she was in the right place at the right time.

Kandi was and will always be the premiere talent in Xscape. She has the most distinctive voice and the stage presence similar to Whitney. They group should be honored she is still associating with them. Kandi is by far the most successful and talented member.

Kandi has been moved on from Xscape. She has her own talents with writing music for A list celebs and producing music and makes big money from it. She has numerous music wards. For her to do the reunion for the brief time she did was for the fans.
Kandi is the prettiest and has the overall best talent. I think there is jealousy against Kandi with the other members. Why should Kandi subkect herself to that negativity when she doesn't have to.
Great for you Kandi. May you have continued success and love!!!

MsSapphire9800 said...

"I CALLED MY GROUP MEMBERS" she was no longer part of Xscape.. Kandi need to have several seats..It is like she is the best singer...she can holler but can't sing....So in other words she used them to hide her dirty secrets.

Anonymous said...

2:06 & 2:07 Don Juan if you don't get your azz out of here!! Kandi will kick YOU to the curb if gary coleman tell her to. You better watch your back too. Using yall as a nanny and shit.
The only person Kandi is prettier than is Fantasia!
She is LYING because she is on tape with Andy saying the group was getting back together. After that Porsha rolled her eyes and looked at Sheree. She tricked that girl into back tracking to "vlear" her reputation nobody cares about then did them dirty. Bet you kandi, jd and his pops know the real deal along with Tiny.
Oh and Kandi wasnon Who can I run to? I can't seem to recall but I damn sure know those sisters sand the shit out of it. Kandi can't sing point blank and she knows this mannnn.

They are not ugly .. Tiny may not be pretty but moving on to kandi she never forgave and ... It wouldn't have worked . Someone said she can't sing ... Come on she can sing. But kissing kim z ass and she did the most made her look weak and dumb... The sex scandal not so bad she was young

Kandi sounds like a dying fucking mule. please believe her voice WILL NOT be missed. Sounded like Donkey from Shrek

She is a great business woman with her ducks in a row. Keep on signing those checks Kandi. #WealthvsRiches

JustMyThoughts said...

Kandi is so foul for this..the 3 of them are always against her..her and Tiny have been besties since they were young and now she saying Tiny is against her. What is about to happen is Tiny getting ready to get in that ass. Tiny stays silent until she doesn't and then that little Lady will come for her. Tiny wanted to get the group back together, she had been trying for years. Kandi is really feeling herself right now...what the problem is they aint her flunky assistants that fall on her every word or her hubby that follows her around like a little puppy dog. This interview gonna come back to bite her in the butt.

My opinion said...

All of the comments up top are nice, but the bottom line is this.........................THERE IS NO ESCAPE WITHOUT KANDI. They could not do it then and they sure as hell CANNOT do it now without her. Talks that shit about her voice if you want but the woman has been relevant for years she writes hits for all of your FAVS. Not a fan but give credit where credit is due. Them sisters is talented as hell but talent only goes so far. The looks shape your career in this business and they just never had them. I thought LaTacha could do well in gospel..........but that did not happen. Hell even Tiny tried going solo and look where that ended up. So they are recording new music without her okay let see what this album does..........shut gin go double glass FOH

So, what was she trying to head off at the pass?

‎- Allegedly f*cking any and all DJS and Execs in the Greater Houston and Atlanta area to get put on before she took up with JD? Wasn't this the real reason Mama Joyce and her Dad had a falling out? (He didn't want her getting run through but Joyce say dollar signs and let it slide)

- Why she's really mad at Brick (or whatever his name is) because she was allegedly a jump-off that wanted more and he wasn't feeling it?‎

- Allegedly smoking sherm while pregnant with Riley which is why the child is slow?  

- The really beat the dead fiancée and why, who really broke into‎ the studio and stole the gold records, and why we should never take out loans from street dudes with no future who don't care about killing folk (allegedly)

- That Todd is a good influence and is allegedly keeping her money from being totally squandered by her country bumpkin relatives...

- That restaurants don't need to make money when they allegedly act as a tax shelter

- I hope I don't sound like a hater, but to reclaim the narrative and act like the other women in the group are desperate/She doesn't need the reunion money too is a farce‎

No!!!!!! said...

Such a sore winner!! Such a victim makes herself so dislikable. Not the best singer in the group arguably rode the coat tails of these Scott sisters on the come up. Ugly version of mr Dalvin.
Yes we know u wrote no scrubs and no one would know it if u sang it cause CHILLI gave that song life just like BEYONCÉ and KELLY gave bills bills bills life
Man when Todd get caught out there the victimy whining gonna be EPIC

There was New Edition that had to go down to 3 because of a lot of mess...they changed their names Bell Biv Devoe and went on to make a lot of coins on a couple cd's and touring. Don't say these ladies can't do it without Kandi..you just never know what these 3 ladies may come up with. Don't count them out without Kandi.

There is no Xscape without Kandi? What the bulldagger do? She was in pure butch form back then and her voice is turruble *charles barkley*.
Kandi got a pass all these years because although everbody knows she's a whore, she came off as likeable. Phaedra's firing really has her feeling herself though so back to earth she shall come.

Yes kandi has an imagination and can write some songs. She is rich not wealthy because of that. And just like that she should remain in the background. Kandi has a face for radio and a voice for county fairs. She is NOT all that and she knows it.
Nene called her out when she was border line fat when they were on the bitch and she let them hamhock thighs breathe. So I hope she not judging nobody on their weight.
She needs to remember that Phaedra had to convince Tiny Tucker to date her then he saw she was willing to spend to keep him so he married her.
Kandi starts every sentence with my huzzband but has NO clue who her huzzband is. Even when he tried to move his daughter in and wanted her on the show.
Why is kandi mad because Block fucked Porsha and Todd STILL wants too?
Why Kandi had to go to the dinner Block wanted with Riley? Cause she's a HOE.
The Kandi representative in here is making it crystal clear of her intentions. She wants the group to fail. She wants them to flop and be embarrassed. And for that she will reap her sowings.

You are never too big to have your light dimmed. Bet as soon as kim becomes fulk time they will have to take a pay cut. But she wanna be up in kims face explaining the kenya and sheree beef. Oh thats right she cried over kim taking some of her brand and keeoing ALL of those coins. even still fucked with her after trashing her house.
Kandi can address that Porsha lied but not address what those texts were really leading up to. She and her husband was going to have a 3 some with Porsha. But this bitch big mad we know she had regular sex with jd AND his pappy. And she's playing herself taking Tiny's kindness for weakness blurting her and TI's marriage business.
She treating Tiny the way TIP does and she better hope Tiny doesn't get to talking.

Strawberries said...

I don't like Kandi's voice either but Kandi did well after Xscape with her songwriting and other business ventures so stop frontin' and give Kandi that credit at least. She doesn't owe anyone an explanation . She's been good after Xscape and she's been over it. If they can make an album without her, they should go for it. It's that simple.

I'm thinking she wanted more money and they wouldn't agree so she bounced

@TheOne/@2:06, I KNOW you didn't just put Whitney Houston and Kandi in the same paragraph and try to compare them in any capacity....was that sarcasm because I literally spit out my drink laughing lmao

Anonymous said...

To hell with Kandi. It wasn't her soulful voice that made me like them anyway. I hope these sisters come back with some real R&B music because for the listeners that's what's important. More so catering to people in their age group. We could use more love songs..happy songs...songs that touch your soul. Not like some of this angry, self centered, hyper sex crap that's peddled to the masses.

Kandi don't make or break the group. She wasn't the best singer in the group anyway.

Kandi looks like Jim Carrey

Why don't they just get a new 4th member? There are a million new singers out who could bring a new sound to the group. I never could stand Candy with her pretentious ass.

Kandi is not as rich as everybody thinks, she's been worth the same 30 million dollars since 2009.

Anonymous said...

Dead @ 4:32 "smoking sherm" lmao...have never heard that except in songs from the 90's. The reads in this thread are epic and Kandi is living her best draya themed life where she turned in her hoe card to have her hoeness erased... bwahhaaaa

Riley is slow because blocks dna is f/ckd. She is her father's everything.

No one has ever cared that the scott sisters can sang, like ever. The quicker they realize that, the quicker they can understand why xscape is a packaged deal. We did not care that tasha could sing. We only knew her as the fat one.

She will always be known as the fat one and kudos to her hubby helping keep her from going to old star jones/kelly price land

Mephime said...

Xscape was mediocre at best and none of them sang all that great. I don't get the currnet hype.
