Kandi Burruss is starring on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and now she will soon be on Celebrity Big Brother! After Kandi announced that she would be on season two of Celebrity Big Brother this month, she said in a vlog, “I hope I win. You know I like to win.” Kandi isn’t the only Real Housewives star to partake in Big Brother, last time Brandi Glanville, alum of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills appeared. Kandi recently reached out to Brandi for tips and advice!
Kandi told Entertainment Tonight, “The first thing she said was, ‘It’s horrible; you’re not going to make it.'” Then Brandi added, “Well, if you have decided that you’re definitely doing this, find the most athletic person in the house and be friends with them.”
Kandi said that her daughter Riley has been supportive of her doing this. Now Kandi has been studying the show to prepare. She said, “What I noticed on the first season was when you have all those people in one room, normally they bond together. So, they’re not going to vote each other off. I want more people who will feel bad about kicking me off than just, like, one person.” Kandi added that she wants to be in the bigger room. She explained, “I always want to be in the bigger room because that’s more people you can make a bond with. And I’m going to do my best to not let too many people have conversations with me not in the room. If I see people breaking off, I’ll go in and go, ‘Hey girl, what you doing?’ so she can’t be over there plotting against me.”
Kandi’s strategy on BB is to stand her ground while not being too assertive. She explained, “Out of the first couple of episodes that I saw, I said, ‘You don’t want to be too bossy, because that doesn’t work.’ But then you can’t let people run you over either because that’s when they think that they are manipulating you to do what they want you to do.”
Kandi is glad that she’s not going to have her RHOA co-stars as housemates. Kandi joked, “If I was stuck in a house with them for a month, I would go crazy!”
Her biggest fear about this adventure is being the first houseguest to get evicted. She said if she leaves first, her family “said they’re going to disown me.” Kandi said, “I’m going to try and be tough and stick through it. I will admit that I do miss my children and my husband already. But they are supporting me in this, so I know that they will be OK.”
She plans on using the prize money to put into her businesses, as well as raising awareness for her businesses. She also hopes that it will raise awareness for her charity, Kandy Cares, that helps single parents and the children of single parents get education.
I will be watching, I’m a big fan of Big Brother. Good luck, Kandi!
