The ladies of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” seem to be serving up some piping hot tea in a new tit-for-tat flavor. Fans of the show know by now that co-stars Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks are no longer bosom buddies. They also know how Burruss has coyly hinted at the nature of Parks’ relationship with the mysterious Mr. Chocolate. But on the latest episode of the Atlanta-based Reality TV series, viewers will learn that Parks supposedly has a secret of her own. If true, the tea is so hot, it could be scalding.

During one segment of the show, there is a scene where Parks is having lunch with cast mate Sheree Whitfield.

From the look of things, Kandi Burruss is the main topic on the menu rather than the lunch entrees. Parks mumbles to the owner of Chateau Sheree that Burruss is bedding someone other than her hubby Todd Tucker and it is not a man. After Whitfield pushes for clarification, Parks blurts out Shamea. Shamea Morton is often featured on “Real Housewives of Atlanta” as Burruss’ friend. The Decatur, Georgia native is an actress who appeared in the 2002 movie “Drumline.” She also works as a radio personality and for the NBA Atlanta Hawks team as an in-game host.

Hotlanta is about to get even hotter

Burruss, the former Grammy-winning member of R&B girl group Xscape, has never been shy about her sensuous side.

Aside from selling a line of sex toys, the 40-year-old mother of two also hosts a risqué web series called Kandi Koated Nights. During one installment of the series, Burruss and husband Todd admitted to having discussions about inviting a third party into their bedroom. One can only guess as to how Burruss will react to her former friend dishing the dirt without permission, if indeed true.

Will she own up to it or deny the whole thing?

Why can’t we be friends?

The friendship between the spicy Phaedra Parks and the presumably even spicier Kandi Burruss has been going south for quite a while now. Christmas 2016 has come and gone. Perhaps there will be a Christmas miracle in 2017 to help these two patch things up.
