Celebrity Big Brother Recap: Tamar Braxton vs. Kandi Burruss!

by at .

It's hard to believe, but Wednesday's episode of Celebrity Big Brother (yes, we are still calling it that!) had more drama than the entirety of the show's first season. 

With alliances crumbling, old feuds coming to light, and brand new twists, there was a lot of action.

When the episode got underway, Jonathan, Tom, and Anthony were on the block, and Jonathan was starting to worry about his prospects in the game. 

Not helping matters was that Lolo, Natalie, and Tamar were already gunning for Jonathan because they realized he was the one who moved the target away from Dina. 

The trio started to strategize and realized that it was already time to turn their back on the alliance that was created just one episode before. 

This is party Ryan's fault for allowing himself to be swayed by Jonathan. The pair flat-out lied to their alliance about the nominees and flipped the script at the last minute.

Lolo followed this up by yelling that both Ryan and Jonathan were in a final two before flipping the bird at the pictures of the two men. 

What made this more embarrassing was that she performed this act in full view of the two men she was dragging. 

For someone who thinks she knows how Big Brother works, she missed the mark on this one. Ryan then pondered whether it would be a good idea to backdoor Lolo. 

The weird thing here is just how fast this relationship combusted. They went from being Olympians and friends to enemies quickly. 

Ricky went on to win the POV competition, and Ryan asked him to use the veto so that he and the other men could wipe out the girls. 

Ricky took this to Lolo who acted as dumb as a bag of rocks when she wondered why Ryan would turn on her so quickly.

Then there was Tamar and Kandi who couldn't strategize because they were too busy bickering about something that happened over a year ago while they were on tour. 

“I was having trouble with my marriage,” Tamar revealed, adding:

“I was having issues with my career. Things were like all over the place. You personally interjected yourself in the situation by talking crazy about me when you should have just said nothing.”

“Okay,” Kandi said. “On the tour, I wasn’t thinking about that stuff. I thought we had moved on.”

“I thought it was totally ugly disrespectful and unprofessional,” Tamara fired back.

“I had to endure being uncomfortable at work,” Tamar continued while also claiming that Xscape members messed with her set. 

“We would not do that on purpose,” Kandi insisted in a confessional. “We were happy she was there. Whatever she is thinking is clearly a misunderstanding.”

Tamar turned on the waterworks prompting Kandi to cackled like an old witch because Tamar was so extra. The only thing this did was put the two women further at odds with each other. 

“I’m not taking all that cackling,” Tamar complained. “For you to laugh...”

“I wasn’t trying to attack you,” Kandi responded.

“The fact she’s trying to make me this villain in her life is totally ridiculous,” Kandi later said.

Tamar's day went from bad to worse when Natalie and Lolo walked into the room and started brainstorming names for their final two. Tamar was in the room, and the pair failed to check if the room was empty. 

Yeah, you couldn't make this stuff up. Tamar was mad, but she tried to imply she was cool with it. 

What followed was Tamar making a comment about hitting Lolo in the throat, but claimed it was a joke when Lolo geared up for a fight.

Yes, really. 

While the pair managed to patch things up, this feud has started, and it's not going to be over any time soon. 

In the end, Ricky stirred up all the drama and decided against using the POV, noting that he was intent on stirring the pot.
