Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss has been friends with Carmon Cambrice for 27 years. They grew up together in Atlanta. “We drive each other crazy sometimes but we can’t go a day without speaking to each other,” said Carmon. Kandi and Carmon’s friendship took a hit right before Kandi got married to Todd Tucker. Kandi’s mother, Mama Joyce, accused Carmon of having an affair with Todd. Carmon and Mama Joyce haven’t spoken since.
Carmon isn’t just Kandi’s best friend, she’s her assistant too. The former insurance agent started working with Kandi after losing her job in 2013. “Kandi asked me to help her for a few weeks as she moved into her new home and renovated her office space. A ‘few weeks’ turned into a few months and now, two years later, I’m working as her assistant. I think it just works for us.” What doesn’t work for them is Mama Joyce. On the RHOA spinoff, Kandi’s Ski Trip, Mama Joyce is still convinced that Carmon and Todd had an affair. She tells Camron to take a lie detector test to prove her innocence. Kandi’s Ski Trip airs for three weeks beginning Sunday, May 17 at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
