“The question at the dinner was, did someone call Kandi a lesbian?” Phaedra says. “In order for her to be a lesbian, that would mean she is only sleeping with women, correct? I never said she was a lesbian.”
“You said she was sleeping with a woman,” Andy shoots back.
“That doesn’t mean you’re a lesbian!” Phaedra responds.
So, Phaedra’s defense seems to be semantics. While she never used the word “lesbian,” Phaedra did imply that Kandi and Shamea Morton were more than friends by using a sexuality suggestive hand gesture while talking with co-stars Sheree Whitfield and Porsha Williams.
“Did you not think, hmm, could this be what I said about Kandi and Shamea?” Andy asks.
“No, I didn’t,” Phaedra answers. “Because, when the conversation was had about Kandi and Shamea, and I said that, I wasn’t even going at Kandi at all. I was upset about what Shamea had said. Kandi just happened to be collateral damage.”
