Kandi Burruss Reveals The Celebrity Big Brother Advice She Got From Brandi Glanville!

During a recent interview, Kandi Burruss admitted that she turned to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Brandi Glanville for Celebrity Big Brother advice. “The first thing she said was, ‘You're horrible, you're not going to make it,’” the Real Housewives of Atlanta star told Entertainment Tonight ahead of the season premiere on CBS on January 21.

“But then she said, ‘Well, if you have decided that you're definitely doing this, find the most athletic person in the house and be friends with them.’”

Burruss hopes that her cooking skills will help her make friends, and plans to stick with large groups of contestants within the house as part of hr strategy.

“What I noticed on the first [season] was when you have all those people in one room, normally they bond together,” Burruss explained. “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.”

“I always want to be in the bigger room because that’s more people you can make a bond with," she added. "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.”

Burruss then revealed why she agreed to be on CBB. The singer/songwritter admitted she hadn’t watched the series when her agent called asking if she would be interested in participating, However, she revealed that it was her daughter Riley who ended up convening her to do the show.

“I was like, ‘OK, tell me the truth -- is this something that would be cool for me to do?’” Burruss, a said. “And she was like, ‘Yeah, you should do it. It'll be fun, do it.’”

Burruss revealed she only watched the first three episodes of Season 1 and admits she's nervous bout being stuck in a house with other celebrities.

“If I was stuck in a house with them for a month, I would go crazy!” Burruss told Entertainment Tonight. “So, I've just said, ‘OK, everything that you would normally do -- bring that back down about 30 percent.’ 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.”

Burress said her biggest fear about entering the house is going home first because if she does, her family “said they're going to disown me.”

“I'm going to try and be tough and stick through it,” she said. “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.”
