Reality TV Star and Business woman Kandi Burruss sat down with Concrete Loop’s Angel Laws for the first edition of our ‘CL Sit Down’ video series.
The 36 year-old opened up about her many business ventures, the loss of her friend Chris Kelly (of Kris Kross), her old group Xscape, family life and many other interesting topics.
View the full interview up top, as well as a bonus video of Kandi chatting about her ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ co-stars.
ON THE LOSS OF CHRIS KELLY (of Kris Kross):
That hurt me. We haven’t kept in touch like that in recent years. But we came up together. When our group first signed to So So Def, they were the ones who blew it up for Jermaine to get his label to sign us… I’m so hurt by it. One, I hate to lose another person that I’ve been cool with and to see that happen and he’s so young and I’m just like what is happening to us? Cause so many young people are dying.
ON REUNITING WITH XSCAPE:
Every time I start feeling like maybe things will change, then something else will come up. I remember like a couple weeks ago I had hit up Tiny about something and she was like one of the ex group members had told her to tell me something and it wasn’t cool.
ON HER MOTHER & TODD:
Lately she hasn’t been that supportive on the relationship front. At first she was cool but then I don’t know, I don’t know what happened. But that’s my mama and I love my mama… I’m a grown woman and that’s always something that I’ve struggled with because me and my mom are close.
TIPS FOR UP & COMING ENTREPRENEURS:
Too many people have an idea but they don’t put any action behind their idea and that’s why their not business owners. That’s my opinion. Because to me, Kandi Koated nights was just an idea, Bedroom Kandi was just an idea, doing Tags was just and idea… and if it never leaves my head than I know I’m supposed to be doing it.
