Kandi Burruss opened up about the early exit Nene Leakes made from the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" during a May 26 interview with Hollywood Life.

After Nene was seen closing her computer midway through production on the virtual reunion taping for the Bravo reality series' 12th season, Kandi revealed why she believes Nene opted against fulfilling her commitment to the series and completing production on the highly-anticipated special with her cast mates.

“She definitely left because of Yovanna Momplaisir," Kandi shared with the outlet.

"Let’s be clear — regardless of how me and her argue or she argues with anybody else. She definitely can handle herself in an argument, let’s be clear. She had already told the world she was planning on reading us that day, so it wasn’t because she was arguing with us. As a matter of fact in the moment that she got up to walk away, we weren’t even talking to her anymore,” Kandi explained.

As fans well know, Yovanna targeted Nene by suggesting she encouraged her to record Cynthia Bailey in an effort to prove she was not a good friend.

“So it wasn’t like anything that happened in that moment to make her get up and walk away. What had happened was that Yovanna had posted a video on social media to kind of let people know that she was about to come on. And NeNe was told by whoever was on her team, or whatever or she saw or whatever, and that’s what made her get up and walk away. She didn’t want to deal with her,” Kandi continued.

According to Kandi, she's not sure why Nene wanted to avoid Yovanna.

“I don’t know. I’m not her. I cannot say why she didn’t want to deal with her. But she did not want to go back and forth with Yovanna, I guess, on the reunion so she got up and walked away," Kandi recalled. "We were all kind of upset by that obviously. There were other things that were still left to discuss. There was still other things that they had to talk about that actually happened on the show, that didn’t happen off camera."

During the reunion taping for "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" last month, Yovanna put Nene on blast for her alleged plans to set up their co-stars.

“Not only did she ask me to record Ms. Cynthia Bailey, but she told me she wanted me to record every single body that’s sitting right here. She wanted proof that everybody else is equally talking sh-t about her the way she talks sh-t about everybody else,” she shared.
