Tamar Braxton and Kandi Burruss' Beef Started Way Before 'Celebrity Big Brother'

By Anna Quintana

Don't expect the new alliance between Tamar Braxton and Kandi Burruss in the Celebrity Big Brother house to run smoothly. The Atlanta beauties were selected for the star-studded edition of the reality series, but it became pretty obvious right away that there is a long-standing beef between the two. 

After Tamar picked Kandi as her partner for the first Head of Household competition, to "extend an olive branch," she quickly regretted her decision. "I wanted people to at least know I was a contender," Tamar said on the show. "I ain't picking Kandi no more, I'll tell you that. She ain't invited." Kandi also opened up about her feud with Tamar, adding, "We've had our good times and we've had our bad times." 

Now, Tamar and Kandi have joined forces with fellow houseguests Lolo Jones and Eva Marie — and it's tense, to say the least. 

So, what happened between Tamar and Kandi? 

"She just never really liked me like that," Tamar, 41, revealed during a confessional on the show. However, Kandi, 42, had a completely different story to explain the beef. 

According to the Real Housewife of Atlanta star, it all started when Tamar invited a guest on her tour, who said negative things about Kandi and her girl group, Xscape.
