Kandi Burruss fears Martell Shereé is using Whitfield ‘for publicity’

Kandi Burruss questions the validity of Martell Holt’s relationship with her ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ colleague Shereé Whitfield.

“I don’t want her to be in a situation where it feels like she’s being used for publicity,” the 46-year-old former singer told Atlanta’s V-103 radio station when asked about the budding romance.

Burruss told Shamea Morton a story about one of her friends and fellow reality stars, whom she didn’t name, going on a date with the 40-year-old “Love & Marriage: Huntsville” star with her “earlier this year.” Restaurant Blaze.

“[She] was like… ‘We’re going to have a guy take our photos and video so they can post it,’” the Bravo personality recalled.

“But no blog has actually been posted,” Burruss continued of the “weird” circumstance. “My whole point was seeing this similar situation, I’m like is he doing this? Is he sincere or is he doing the same thing he did with the other person?”

News broke on Tuesday that Whitfield, 52, has been dating Holt for more than two months, with the Ohio native telling TMZ that they met “through a mutual friend” and “just hung out.”

She added, “I’m enjoying life now.”

While the duo hasn’t made things official on Instagram yet, the outlet did get a video of them taking selfies on a beach.

Whitfield was previously in a relationship with Tryone Gilliams and their split was documented on the Bravo show this year.

The fashion designer has been a member of the cast since 2008. Burruss, for her part, joined the following year.

The reality stars clashed last month after RHOA’s Marlo accused Hampton Burruss of being “a ho” who f-ked “everyone for free” pre-reality TV — and Whitfield nodded along to the 46-year-old’s claims.

“I was more surprised by the fact that Shereé countersigned everything Marlo said,” Burruss told Access Hollywood in June. “That’s what I expect from Marlo, but Shereé? I was done when I saw that.

“I was totally shocked because I didn’t even hurt Sheree. I don’t even understand where this energy comes from. It just completely freaked me out.”
