NeNe Leakes Explains Why She Was ‘Surprised’ To Find Out That Kandi Burruss Joined Celebrity Big Brother And Believes Tamar Braxton Will Win The Show!

NeNe Leakes is sharing her thoughts on her Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star Kandi Burruss is doing on Celebrity Big Brother. "I was surprised that she went on the show, because they asked me to go on and I said no," she told Entertainment Tonight.

"I was surprised that Kandi took it. She is more of a game player than me. I'm not really that girl. I don't want to be away from my phone and locked up and sleeping with people that I don't know, because I didn't know who I was going to enter the house with."

"You have to be in a room with other people and then the cameras are watching you except for when you are on the potty and in the shower. They watch you brush your teeth, they watch you do a lot and I just don't want them to watch me do everything," she explained of why she passed on CBS' offer. "I don't want to be watched."

Leakes revealed that she thought Burruss would "do well" on the CBS hit reality show because of her competitive nature, but she admits that she's more excited seeing her good friend Tamar Braxton. "I caught an episode, and I saw Tamar [Braxton], and I was like, 'Well, looks like Tamar's the one doing well.' It looked like Tamar was carrying her a little bit," she said.

"[Stirring stuff up] is what Tamar [does]. That's why they need her in the house. She is coming there to shake things up. But then I caught the clip of the girl about to shake Tamar up -- whoa," she hilariously said of Braxton's fight with Lolo Jones. "That girl was not having it."

"[Jones] was ready to take her down!" Leakes continued. "She was really, really ready. Oh my, I want to meet her."

However, Leakes believes that Braxton will be the winner of the show. "I put my money on Tamar Braxton," she told Entertainment Tonight.
