Oh, that’s what those cakes showcasing behind the scenes Instagram pics were about. Evelyn Lozada, Chrissy Lampkin, Tamar Braxton and Kandi Burruss cover VIBE Magazine’s S-exy Issue. In the cover story, titled “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” the reality TV stars speak on a range of topics including how they feel the producers on their respective show are prone to pushing the ratchetness. Jim Jones’ fiance Chrissy Lampkin was particularly vocal about this.
So you’re saying the producers orchestrated the violence?
Chrissy: Absolutely. They would go as far as telling the new girl, “Chrissy thinks she’s Queen Bee around here so we need you to step up because nobody here has a strong enough personality. We need you to shut it down.” They were feeding people this negative energy from the door. I have no reason to lie.
Kandi: If [the producers] know this person and that person don’t get along, they’ll be like, “Okay, we want you guys to go to lunch.” They know if they have a conversation about what’s going on, something’s gonna jump off. But nobody can make you physically punch somebody in the face. We end up doing that to ourselves from people being real disrespectful in the way they’re speaking to each other, pointing fingers all in people’s faces. Some people just can’t take that.
