Kandi Burruss Reveals In A Video The Reason Why She Decided To Join Celebrity Big Brother- It Involves Her Daughter, Riley

It was recently reported that Kandi Burruss and Tamar Braxton decided to join Celebrity Big Brother. This came after Kandi revealed to her fans that she would be taking a break from social media. Now, Kandi explains her decision to join to famous show in the video below.

‘So people are asking why I am doing Celebrity Big Brother, and the answer is … @rileyburruss told me I should do it and she also said if I get kicked out early …don’t come home😂😂😂😂.#celebritybigbrother’ Kandi captioned her video.

Someone had a suggestion for Kandi and her hubby: ‘@kandi you and Todd would have been great on Celebrity Survivor or Celebrity Amazing Race – wouldn’t y’all agree?’

Another follower said ‘I’ll be rooting for you…. I think you can do it @kandi You have the perfect personality for this show.’

Someone else had a new point of view: ‘Because RHOA is coming to an end but you’re smart and already setting up future bags! Love you girl! ❤ #taurusthing.’

One commenter said ‘I’m a fan of the show, but don’t think I could ever compete on the show. It’s interesting to watch the ways people will lie and deceive in the name of money and prizes. I’ll be rooting far you (and your sanity), and I hope you do well! 💪🏾

A supporter posted: ‘Big Brother, Kandi hope U win only for Riley’s encouraging U for charity. U probably wouldn’t have thought of it yourself….’

Young Royals Join Queen at Sandringham for Christmas Day Service

FAMILY SPIRIT: Royals young and old came out in force for the Christmas Day church service at St. Magdalene’s church near Queen Elizabeth’s country estate in Sandringham, England.
This was Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle’s, first Christmas as the wife of Prince Harry.
She arrived wearing a Victoria Beckham navy coat and midi knit dress, showing off her baby bump. She paired it with a feathered hat and a modernist, structured clutch bag, also designed by Beckham.
The Duchess of Cambridge – who walked beside the newly married couple with Prince William – wore a more classic burgundy coat by British designer Catherine Walker, with a matching headband and Jimmy Choo pointed-toe pumps.
Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, the latter with her new husband Jack Brooksbank, were also among the churchgoers.
They greeted members of the public, who also attended, and shared holiday wishes.
The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Philip didn’t attend. Both are fighting a winter cold.
As per tradition, the royal family had a black tie dinner on Christmas Eve, where they exchanged presents. They will also get together for Christmas lunch at Sandringham, the Queen’s country estate in Norfolk.

It’s November… Are You a Member? | Join The Surfrider Foundation Today

Surfrider Foundation Press Release

It’s November. Are You a Member?

Membership is the lifeblood of our organization. Each $ 25+ membership supports our programs, gives us political clout, and shows the strength of our community in real, irrefutable numbers.

San Diego County prides itself on being the largest & most active chapter in the country, with a membership of 2000. It’s an impressive number, but also very small when you consider our 3 million+ population.

Humor me.

Imagine if every county resident who loved our coast became a Surfrider member. Every surfer, paddler, swimmer, and beachgoer. Every parent who cares about clean water & healthy beaches for their children.

With that level support – not just financially, but as a community that stands up for its beaches – we could approach 100% capacity to protect San Diego county’s 72 miles of coast.

This is the SD County Chapter I dream about.

One where every ocean-loving citizen joins our ranks at the level they can afford. One where together, we achieve 100% protection of our coast the same way we’ve been doing it for 34 years:

As a powerful activist network that RALLIES, FIGHTS, and WINS for our beaches.
