If Tamika Scott Apologizes PUBLICLY To Kandi For Lies, There May Be An Xscape Reunion

Posted on Feb 26 2013 - 6:16pm by Funky Dineva


With the addition of Latocha Scott to R&B Divas, Xscape and all the drama surrounding their breakup has been given new life. It has been 20 years since Xscape released their first single ‘Just Kicking It’ in 1993. The short-lived quartet definitely died out before they reached their full potential. Having 3 uber successful albums, fans are still asking “what really happened, and does it really matter 20 years later?” Well, for Kandi, it seems that somethings do still matter because they have had a lasting impact on her spirit and her reputations. Recently Kandi talked to Sister 2 Sister Magazine about some things that were said publicly that left her feeling some kind of way. Catch these T’s 


In her Sister 2 Sister interview, Kandi reveals

I’m just going to be honest and tell you, I don’t feel like all the members of my group, they don’t really have love for me like that. Tiny has love for me, but over the years people have told flat-out lies about me in public, dogged me, blamed me for everything that done went wrong in their life. To me, it’s just a situation where I feel like I don’t want to go back to that.

To this day now, I have to see people try to say that I had sex with Jermaine’s father. She said that just to make me look bad to people. She came back to apologize to me, but she never apologized in public. It’s not true. It was a flat-out lie. When people do stuff to try to damage you or bring you down to the public, that’s hateful.

That’s just not something I want to revisit.

I can definitely dig wanting a public apology. Set the record straight. Yes it is noble that Tamika apologized. However, in addition to being sorry, help reverse the damage that you caused. If you said it publicly, apologies publicly, point blank. It is kind of jacked up to apologize to someone in private, yet desire to publicly carry  the title of “not being in the wrong”. No shame in it, we all say things we don’t necessarily mean when we are hurt and upset. Surely there is enough blame to equally distribute to all the members of the group.


real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-2-kandis-playlist-13On to Kandi. I do feel like Kandi needs to re-evaluate her stance and come up off it. Like damn, it wouldn’t kill anyone if all the ladies link up ONE TIME for a photo, or a song, or an appearance. Sometimes the situation is about more than you. I get it, recording a full fledged album and touring may be out of the question. Let’s face it, so much time has passed and all 4 of the ladies have their own separate lives and responsibilities. Not to mention that there probably wouldn’t be much money to be made once you split the money 4 ways. For someone like Kandi I’m sure it is a better investment of her time from a financial standpoint to devote her energies to the undertakings that will yield the greatest return. Yet in still, some sort of collaboration or project should be considered. They do say music heals the soul…


These next few months are going to be pretty interesting. As Latocha Scott gains more access to the public through her R&B Divas platform, is interviewed and questioned more about Xscape and the potential for a reunion, even greater life is going to be given to this whole situation. This thing could go one of two ways. It could cause further animosity and division or we could have a happy ending and the ladies end up reuniting in some capacity. Only time well till. Until then, somebody call over to TvOne and have them get started on the Xscape Unsung.

    Im Sure Kandi has her reasons for not doing it,and I think it is more that what we know. Obviously whatever was done was very hurtful to her. I wouldn’t do a reunion either. How sincere would the apology be,especially when one the Scott sisters is on a reality show. I wouldn’t help them become famous because of a fake ass apology. They need to figure it out the same way Kandi and Tiny did.

    We get it we would love to see a reunion AMEN!! both sides are at fault the scott sister did apologize personally to kandi but just like tiny said at a radio interview kandi can’t get over it. If Three of the members can come together the scott sisters and tiny because they all would love to see xscape come together then why can’t kandi? Well that’s because Kandi needs some type of direction. Looking from the outside of this whole dilemma I can see that Kandi has deeper issues; she has a mother no offense is always controlling her relationships, the loss of her ex fiance RIP, single mother and a business woman. Now as a woman myself I’ve had many obstacles to overcome by reflecting myself has only help me understand my faults and learn from it. We all judge yet we don’t even hang out with the same friends decades ago we simply grow apart and that’s fine. It’s just there is publicly viewed for the world to see. Instead we should all pray for these ladies mhmm…

    I know this post is lat but Kandi just needs to keep it real….

    After all these years of her being other men sugar mama’s, she finally caught a man willing to put a ring on it and there is no way she was going to risk bringing him to the S0-So Def Reunion and have all her skeletons fly out of her closet.

She has also recorded on soundtracks for Soul Food, Panther, Bad Boys,and Love Jones. She is a talented producer of two tv shows( the one with her and little Wayne’s wife and the Family Hustle.

    I’m over it. That ship has sailed. I loved Xscape but judging from the quality of Tosha and Timkias performance at the So So Def reunion. I won’t run out to purchase tickets to an xscape concert. Duets are supposed to blend harmoniously and not compete and clash.

    Over it! The Soso Def Reunion concert is over and that would have been a perfect opportunity for them to reunite. If they get back together to so something, cool, if not, oh wells.

    We none know exactly what happended, however the Scott sister went on to be mothers & wives not baby mamas & jump offs. Im pretty show if they really wanted to they could’ve did a KC & Jojo with no problem. BTW: Kandi may have not actually slept with Jermaine’s father but something in the milk wasnt clean for all of the music industry to all of a sudden to believe this rumor…Its been said Kandi always had a reputation so I guess it was easy for everyone to believe. #Hell, removing one man from you fuck list dont make your hoefax score any lower IJS :/

    Kandi & Tiny are doing there thing not bc the pressed on from the success of Xscape….Tiny chased & fought & “managed” & got cheated on for years until TI put a ring on it hence forth gave her $$$ & backing to become successful. Kandi became known of again via NeNe’s show aka RHOA!! Kandi hatin on Kenya for stealing Phaedra’s idea, however Kandi openly admits she got the idea for Bedroom Kandi from a European woman who became a millionaire off of selling her ownline of adult toys. Kandi go sit down some where please & thank you’

    I remember the interview but I don’t remember her saying JD’s dad (I heard that about Tamar and that his wife kicked her ass). I do remember her saying JD and Kandi admitting that f’ing JD was just something to do. I heard about Kandi with Gerald Levert, Shakespeare, that she slept with 1 or 2 members or Jagged Edge, Block (Riley’s dad) while he was married. You get the point. So I don’t understand why this big public apology when Kandi has been around.

    I think it is Maya Angelou who said “When people show you who they are, believe them”. How many times in a relationship should you allow someone to talk about you negatively until you have enough sense to move on? If Tamkia wants a reunion, she is grown and knows what she needs to do to make a way for one to happen.

    They were still really young when this happened, I blame it on immaturity ………..it’s been 20 years, obviously it didn’t damage her career or her ability to make money, what doesn’t kill you make you stronger. Reunite and give the people what they want……..stay prayed up!

    So many say on the comment boards that the “Scott sister were the real talent of the group” well then why are they the two unrelevant ones. I think LaTocha is truly talented and her sister compliments her well. Kandi and Tiny choose to stay in the music business and become successful in their own right. Why should Kandi or Tiny help the Scott’s get money if they are “the real talent”? Kandi felt wronged, and Tiny is not helping someone who wronged her friend. Point blank

    Hi! Yes we are told to forgive and forget. Lord knows it is hard. I understand where Khandi is coming from also. It’s not about letting it go! It’s about damage control. YOU may not have experienced the affects of what bad lies can cause. People have actually died because of lies, served/currently serving prison time because of lies, loss jobs because of lies, and so on. We have to agree that it’s the audience of these lies that are being told that is our concern and what they will do with it. None of us love being lied on period. Furthermore, imagine finding out the TRUTH after receiving the lies and reacting negatively towards the person/people who were lied on to you. What would be YOUR apology? “Oops, My Bad?”

    It’s kind of sad when people can’t forgive and move on. It is very obvious that Kandy can’t move on. For goodness sake the girl apologized for the lies she told. If she is secure in her own skin , she wouldn’t care what the public thought about her. I thought it was a cop out not to perform. She should of put her differences aside and did the concert for the fans. This is a grown woman holding a grudge over foolishness. Every Sunday she appears on that drama filled garbage reality show, but she can’t deal with this petty drama. Have several sits

    It is not petty. You put out lies in public on a radio station and then want to privately apologize. She did the dirt, Kandi just wants it to go on record that she will admit that she was telling lies. Yes, it’s been some years ago, but still it is something that needs to be cleaned up. They grew up together and had a friendship before the group. She jumped down Kandi throat about her being the reason Xscape broke up. Truth be told it was Tasha who wanted more royalties and money than any other member and she refused to sign the contract. So, there is way more to the story then what is being said in the public. Kandi asked her to apologize on the radio and say it was lies, Tasha refused as she wanted to save face. So, if you are really sorry then apology the same way.

    Everything private shouldn’t be made public & people should discuss ones fault in private; reading many of these post is like sitting among senior citizens comparing their ailments. As you grow older you develop maturity & forgiveness is forgiveness. This is one reason why I limit my interactions with women. Even with age many are still ignorant & bitter.

Im sure Kandi is over this and them but moving on doesnt mean you gotta go back to working or hanging out. After youve been wronged by someone its never the same even after the apologies. No one mentions that Tiny aint take part in the celebration either im sure there are deeper issues in the group as well.Kandi & Tiny are both doing well and I wish the other ladies much success as well.

    I would LOVE to see an Xscape reunion. I think this really did hurt Kandi a lot. She talked about it a couple of weeks ago on KKN. MAYBE, just maybe if Ms. Scott does make an apology and they sit and talk, Xscape can do an Unsung or a MTV Behind the Music. No one says they have to make an album, but an appearance would be WONDERFUL! Xscape was one of the first girl groups that made me love their music!

To forgive a person does not mean they have to be in your life, she is holding the trump card…let them stay thirsty. Lying about the girl sleeping with Jermaine Dupre”s daddy. Have a seat sisters its been over!!! Lots of people can sing but I would rather have her bank account.

Why da hell does she need to be reunited with these sisters when they had so much to say back then? Yea its been 20 years and I love Xscape, I even still have that album Traces of my lipstick in a box in my storage room. But that was wrong of those sisters to do a friend and band member like that! You forgive and forget and move on….just do have nothing to do with that person cause you know what they are capable of….shady sh**t!
