Kandi Burruss won’t join Bethenny Frankel’s war against Bravo

Kandi Burruss has made it clear that she prefers to handle issues directly and in real time rather than getting involved in any wars between Bravo, NBC, and reality stars. In an interview with “Entertainment Tonight,” Burruss stated that it wouldn’t make sense for her to be a part of any conflicts and that she believes in addressing issues immediately when working with someone. She emphasized that reality stars should not wait until after airing their grievances and should instead reach out to the network directly. Burruss chose not to participate in Bethenny Frankel’s call for reality stars to join the actors’ strike, as she believes in handling issues in the present moment.

Frankel, on the other hand, expressed her frustrations with the lack of residuals and fair treatment for reality stars. She questioned whether reality stars were being taken advantage of and called for unity among them. In response to these concerns, an anonymous group of reality stars sent a legal letter to NBCUniversal, accusing them of “depraved treatment” and the use of “revenge porn.” Mark Geragos and Bryan Freedman, the legal representatives hired by Frankel, also alleged that NBC and Bravo covered up acts of sexual violence. NBCUniversal, in a statement to TheFantasyTimes, emphasized their commitment to maintaining a safe and respectful workplace for cast and crew on their reality shows. They stated that they have appropriate workplace policies and training in place and take timely and appropriate actions when complaints are brought to their attention.

Despite Frankel’s efforts to rally support, a source revealed that there are many individuals, both men and women, who have reached out to join her cause. It is expected to be a massive movement, with at least 80 people interested in participating. The legal letter sent to NBC and Bravo made various allegations, including claims of exposing reality stars to depraved treatment and providing inadequate provisions such as alcohol and food. Another insider confirmed that Frankel has been actively recruiting individuals, particularly those who have previously been on “Housewives” shows.

In conclusion, Burruss prefers to handle issues directly, while Frankel has voiced concerns about the treatment and compensation of reality stars. The legal letter sent to NBC and Bravo has brought attention to these issues, and Frankel has been successful in generating support from a large group of individuals. The battle between reality stars and the networks continues as they strive for better treatment and fair compensation.

She’ll take a peach over a picket sign.

Kandi Burruss declared she “wouldn’t be a part” of Bethenny Frankel’s war against Bravo and NBC because she prefers to handle issues herself in real time.

“I myself would not be a part of that. It wouldn’t make any sense for me to be a part of that,” Burruss told “Entertainment Tonight” Wednesday.

“To me, if I’m working with somebody, and I feel like they’re not doing something that they should be doing, I address it right then.”

The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” mainstay, 47, said she believes reality stars should not “wait for after” to air their grievances.

“You are not gonna check with them no more, and then come back and try to go for their throat? That’s just how I feel,” she said, adding that she always “reached out to the network” to address any issues she may have had.

Amid the ongoing SAG-AFTRA and writers’ strike, Frankel issued a call to arms in July for reality stars to join the actors’ strike.

“I myself have generated millions and millions of dollars in advertising and online impressions being on reality TV and have never made a single residual,” the former “Real Housewives of New York City” star, 52, explained in a video.

“So, either I’m missing something or we’re getting screwed, too.”

Earlier this month, an anonymous group of reality stars sent a legal letter to NBCUniversal brass over their alleged “depraved treatment” and use of “revenge porn.”

Legal eagles Mark Geragos and Bryan Freedman, who confirmed they were retained by Frankel in an earlier announcement, also claimed in their letter that NBC and Bravo covered up “acts of sexual violence.”

“Please be advised that the day of reckoning has arrived,” the statement concluded.

In response, an NBCUniversal spokesperson said in a statement to TheFantasyTimes that the company was “committed to maintaining a safe and respectful workplace for cast and crew on our reality shows.”

“At the outset, we require our third-party production partners to have appropriate workplace policies and training in place,” the statement continued.

“If complaints are brought to our attention, we work with our production partners to ensure that timely, appropriate action is or has been taken, including investigations, medical and/or psychological support, and other remedial action that may be warranted such as personnel changes.”

Although Frankel hired the legal bigwigs, a source told TheFantasyTimes that she managed to rally a large group of people to join her cause.

“It’s going to be a massive thing. There are multiple individuals wanting to join this … at least 80 people have reached out, men and women,” the insider shared.

The source also doubled down on the legal letter’s claims that the network is “feeding them alcohol [and] not giving them food.”

“The conditions are mentally exhausting to get the best content,” the source added.

Another Bravo insider told us it’s no secret that “Bethenny is recruiting people” and believes the bulk of her followers are “former ‘Housewife’ types.”
