Real Housewife Kandi Burruss Reveals Why She Didn’t Watch Her Own ‘Celebrity Big Brother’

Kandi Burruss has been in the entertainment industry since she was around 16 years old. Not only was she a member of the ’90s R&B group Xscape, but she also went on to create a name for herself as a talented songwriter. She wrote Bug a Boo, The Writing on the Wall, and Bills, Bills, Bills for Destiny’s Child. She also wrote No Scrubs for TLC, which ended up winning her a Grammy.

Here lately, Kandi has become famous for her appearances on several popular reality shows, like The Real Housewives of Atlanta and Celebrity Big Brother. Although many people have mixed feelings about the Real Housewives franchise, there is no denying that Kandi was the most loved cast member on the show and made the Atlanta series a more entertaining show to watch. 

With all of the drama that happened on Celebrity Big Brother, many people are wondering how she felt about seeing herself interact with the other cast members on the show. Well, she apparently did not watch the show after it had aired and we know the reason why.

Kandi had some major drama with another cast member

From almost the first moment that the two had locked eyes, there was immediate tension between Kandi and another member of the house, Tamar Braxton. Being that both ladies are from the music industry and have known each other for a long time, you would think that they would have stirred up on an instant friendship as soon as they had gotten into the house. That is not what happened, however. Instead, the two became instant rivals with Tamar stating that she did not like Kandi due to the way she had treated Tamar in the past. 

Last year, Tamar had gone on The Great Xscape tour with Kandi and her group. According to Tamar, Kandi was rude and disrespectful during the tour. She had also said that the two were never really that close and that Kandi had never really liked her that much. Kandi, on the other hand, tells a different story. She says that Braxton had brought someone on the tour that had said very negative things in the past about her and her group. 

During one of the episodes of Celebrity Big Brother, Kandi and Tamar had tried to talk and work out their differences, but as soon as Kandi had laughed at something that Tamar said, the conversation was over. “I’m trying to tell you how I feel and your laughing,” Tamar told Kandi right before she angrily stomped out of the room.

Tamar and Kandi eventually made up

Kandi had gone on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen to “spill the tea” about various Celebrity Big Brother rumors. When she was asked about her friendship with Tamar, Kandi replied: “Oh,  we’re good now.” So, apparently, the two singers were able to eventually work out their differences.

Why didn’t Kandi watch her own ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ season?

During the same interview with Andy Cohen, he had asked if when she watched the show back if she was surprised to learn that Tamar had actually had her back during the show. “I did not watch it back,” Kandi replied. “Yeah, my friends said it was best not to watch it back because I don’t want to get angry about anything that was said during the show.” 

She then went on to wish Tamar a happy birthday and then talked about the other friendships that she had made during her time on the show.

We think that the fact that Kandi decided to not watch the show was probably a good thing. Being that she and Tamar seem to finally be friends again, we wouldn’t want Kandi to have to relive any of the drama that may bring up resentment or anger towards Tamar.
