Back in the day, Kandi Burruss made a stop on the '90s version of The Mickey Mouse Club. You know, the one that launched the careers of superstars like Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Ryan Gosling, and Keri Russell. Well, it also used to welcome A-listers as weekly guests during its run. And one of those guests just so happened to be Xscape.
The moment between the girl group, Ryan, and Justin is pretty adorable. It features the young studs trying to guess why the foursome decided to call themselves Xscape. Their theories are pretty outlandish, to say the least. However, Kandi eventually shed some light on why they really landed on that name. "We wanted to do our own thing. We don't want to do everything that everybody else was doing already," The Real Housewives of Atlanta singer explained during the episode.
After a successful run, the group later broke up, Kandi launched a solo career as well as a songwriting career and, oh yeah, joined RHOA. But Xscape recently reunited and have some big plans in the works. Kandi spoke about working with Justin, not only on MMC but also later during his *NSYNC days.
It was really fun working with them," she recalled. "I really enjoyed it, and I'm glad I had the opportunity. It's so funny to see where we started and where we are now."
