It turns out that while NeNe Leakes is pretty impressed that Kandi Burruss chose to join Celebrity Big Brother, that does not mean she feels the same about her Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star’s gameplay! Here’s what the reality TV star had to say about it!
While at Radio Row with SiriusXM yesterday, NeNe gave an interview to ET and revealed that she was also proposed to be part of the CBS series.
‘I was surprised that she went on the show, because they asked me to go on and I said no. I was surprised Kandi took it. She’s more of a game player than me. I am not really that girl. I do not want to be away from my phone and locked up and sleeping with people I do not know, because I did not know who I was going to enter the house with,’ NeNe said.
As for why she turned down the offer to join Celebrity Big Brother herself, Leakes argued that it was the complete lack of privacy that turned her away from the gig.
She explained: ‘You have to be in a room with other people and then the cameras are watching except for when you are on the potty or in the shower. They watch you brush your teeth, they watch you do a lot, and I just do not want them to watch me do everything. I do not want to be watched.’
The Real Housewives star went on to reveal that she imagined Kandi would do pretty well due to her competitiveness, but in the end, she was more excited to see Tamar Braxton!
‘It looked like Tamar was carrying her a little bit,’ she noted.
NeNe also explained why she thinks they need Tamar in the Celebrity Big Brother House – because she is good at stirring stuff up!
She is even ready to bet that Braxton will be this season’s winner!
