It appears that Kandi has responded to that awkward Xscape interview.
According to PEOPLE, Kandi says that recording a reunion album with her Xscape former bandmates won’t happen because of creative differences:
“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,” she said.
It appears past tensions between members of ’90s R&B group Xscape have once again reared their ugly heads,and the “Just Kickin’ It” crew will be recording their comeback album without singer and songwriter Kandi Burruss.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star dropped the bomb during a group appearance on Watch What Happens Live, where a fan asked about a new album following their current reunion tour.
“Well, they are doing new music,” the Grammy winner shared. “I’m going to be doing Broadway and some other things, and they’ll be working on music.”
When host Andy Cohen asked why she wouldn’t be hitting the studio with fellow group members LaTocha Scott, Tamika Scott and Tameka “Tiny” Harris, Burruss admitted their past feuds have come back to haunt them from time to time.
“We [having to] rehash or whatever; whenever certain subjects come up of course, we bump heads on some stuff.”

Fans were understandably disappointed by the news, taking to social media to share their dismay.

Kandi is annoying AF. Why even “reunite” with Xscape if your plan was to never make new music with them? Cuz I’m certain ain’t no record labels knocking her door down…. pic.twitter.com/N9Ri7wmN2f

I usually rock with Kandi & I understand some of her feelings but her obvious lackluster attitude with the Xscape reunion is draining.
