We chatted with Kandi about is not merely ” Envy” but Bolo[ and yes, his thaaang ], the #RHOA Reunion , her widely discussed pinup pantysuit, and her ruling on whose dungeon-style duds she liked the best.
Tell us about” Envy: A Seven Deadly Sins Story”
I play a character by the name of Reagan. I relate to Reagan because she really reminds me of myself. She’s there to look out for her friend Gabrielle, she’s one of the main references and she finds out that she has this sister that she didn’t know about. She wants to help her father welcome back her[ sister] into their lives , not knowing that this sister has ulterior motives. But right off the slam, I[ Reagan] receive her for what she is. And you know, it gets kind of crazy at the end to the point where they had to give me a stunt double. There was a little piece of action on there.
What was your favorite character about depicting this courage?
She’s very much so me, so to me it was easy for me to really relate to the character! She’s also a businesswoman. She and Gabrielle they have a company together. We[ Regan and Gabrielle] have this company and this daughter is trying to work her nature inside our fellowship and in our business and I’m like,’ Okay, she ain’t even certified !’ But it was very relatable. And the thing that I love about “when youre doing” a movie is you can teach you a lesson in a manner that was that you can are addressed to it.
“Envy” is part of a TD Jakes anthology series on Lifetime. We previously had “Lust” and I feel like there was a lot of lust this season on The Real Housewives of Atlanta in particular when it came to Bolo and” his thang .” Have you spoken to him since he blew up nationwide on #RHOA?
Yes, I actually was texting with him yesterday because I’m trying to put together this virtual vault place. I’m trying to make sure the following schedule come together because you know we ain’t gonna do it without Bolo. We talked even before then because, you are familiar with, there’s obviously a lot going on right now. A lot of attention being put one across him and that could be a lot for some people who are not used to that. He’s super chill, he has a whole relationship, this is not necessarily the attention he was trying to get but he does have other things coming in the future. You know he’s doing a [ Tyler Perry] TV show with Eva. He’s gonna be in that demonstrate, I was telling him to only embrace it and let people know that there’s more to you than exactly has become a male entertainer. You know, I’m saying you’re an entertainer but all the way around in many different ways. So you are familiar with, make it work.
I want to talk about this Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. I investigated that you said the reunion photo that Bravo released didn’t do your seem right …
Hell nah, it didn’t! I affixed the video so that people can see what the ogle was actually giving instead of that patrolman poop photo that they initially released.
You know, when they firstly put out the photo of the reunion, they did not be attributed to beings that the theme that they gave us this year was ” 50 Shades of Gray”/ burlesque/ vault. That’s what we were told. So everybody was going back and forth about what we’re going to do , no subtlety to the girls[ of #RHOA] they look gorgeous. I suspect they decided to do the ordinary garbs that they commonly do. For me, I wanted to go with the topic and with that said today I introduce into you a little latex, I brought you a long train and a hairdo from Dita Von Teese who is one of the most well known burlesque dancers even and she does a lot of retro hair examines. So that’s what it was all about.[ I secreted the video] to give you a real judging on what it should be, I conceive the people didn’t get it. Don’t get me wrong, I hated the pictures that they firstly posted! The angle was bad, the whole thing simply ogled a mess, the lighting was bad, everything was bad about it. I was like’ Okay , now your truly done tried me with this picture! ‘” People can have their jokes and little fun but you’ll get it when it comes out.
