On the last episode of Xscape: Still Kickin It we find the four ladies of the 90’s R&B group coming together to perform for the first time in almost two decades. Xscape member and The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Kandi Burruss reveals that despite the reunion, she still has major reservations about performing multiple shows with the bandmates who have upset her in the past.
Episode two gets straight to the root of the problem with Tameka “Tiny” Harris sitting all three ladies down to have a serious pow wow session.
“As far as I’m concerned, I’m not on the same page with everybody else with a lot of things,” Burruss begins. “Before I would feel good going forward, I want to see how this is going to work.”
When asked about what her reservations are, Burruss says she doesn’t feel “eye-to-eye” on how the business of the group is being conducted —specifically about the trademark, that her name was added to without her prior knowledge. Then the conversation progresses to how the group ended with LaTocha Scott’s solo deal and alleged refusal to promote their last album.
After an intense discussion about lead vocals and money, Scott pulls Kandi aside to talk one on one. The ladies come to an agreement that despite their issues, they need to come together.
“I feel like I’m too old to be feeling like I’m on the outside of the circle —even now, yall are on the same page once again,” Kandi said.
“I’m not trying to fight with you, I’m not trying to argue with you. If you’re saying, ‘Listen, I’m still up in here with it, let me figure this out,’ then I have to give you that. I can’t force nothing. But we still gotta do shows. And we still gotta practice.”
They leave on a good note, and the episode closes with their quartet rehearing for their upcoming shows —we even get an appearance from Kandi’s mother, Joyce “Mama Joyce” Jones. Overall it was good to see them work through their pain and, hopefully, move forward.
