There's no better surprise than a visit from the Barbie queen.
"We screamed," Candiace explained. "We did not know she was coming. We were told that it could happen, then we were told, 'Eh, I don't know,' and then we were told it wasn't going to happen. We're like waiting for another segment to start and she just pops out of the back of the set. She literally came out of the trees from the back of the set. It was insane."
In fact, Candiace "didn't even recognize" Nicki at first. "She's so little. She had this gorgeous blonde wig. I was like, 'Who is that? Who is that person?'" Candiace joked. "And she gets closer and I'm like, 'Oh my god, it's freakin' Nicki! What are we doing?'"
"She read us all for filth, completely and entirely," Candiace concluded. "Everybody's wig was over there, it was snatched off. We had the Sag[ittarius] connection going."
