So. Much. Drama!

That's what we know we can expect fromThe Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion airing this Sunday, thanks to the sneak peek trailer (see above) that shows some unexpected battles between the women we did not see coming.

And the one who really did NOT see it coming? Kandi Burruss!

"I aint gonna beg anybody to be my friend," Phaedra Parks tells Kandi in the clip. And a teary-eyed Kandi responds, "OK, well you ain't gotta worry about." 

So what happened?

According to Kandi, Phaedra's allegations that Kandi was unsupportive and didn't speak to her for months while Phaedra dealt with her issues with Apollo Nida are "a flat out lie."

"I could name you every event, trips we took, all last year up until the season started taping," Kandi tells E! News, "and when the season started taping, we were together every couple days. So at what point did you and I go months without talking? Or are you throwing me under the bus for getting more sympathy votes? What is going on here?!"

All season, Phaedra has been dealing with her estranged husband Apollo's imprisonment following his conviction on fraud charges, and Kandi insists she has been there for Phaedra.

"I just left the reunion not really knowing where we stood for real. This whole season has put a weird little taste in my mouth about our friendship," Kandi tells us. "When [Phaedra] expressed she was having issues, she never expressed them to me. I had to watch the show later on—months later—after taping to see that she was expressing these feelings to other people…If she was feeling that way, why didn't she ever say anything to me."

The silver lining? Kandi's greatest strife—her mother Joyce's continual beef with Kandi's husband Todd Tucker—has been worked out somewhat after Mama Joyce aplogized to Todd for all the trash talking.

"Things have gotten better," Kandi tells us. "My mother and Todd actually, you know, can be around each other and have friendly conversations now instead of it just being intense."

Small miracles!
