Kim explains why she was so stressed about spending time with her in-laws.

on May 7, 20120

What did you guys think of this episode?

I was so excited Kroy's family was coming, yet I was super stressed they were staying for over a week since I had sooo much to do. I met Kroy's family last year when I was pregnant with KJ and didn’t get a chance to spend much time with them, so this was our chance to get to know each other. I had all these thoughts running through my mind...What are they going to think of our new home? How am I going my keep my hands off their son? How am I not going to cuss for over a week, especially given how stressed I was? But we all know I am ME and I am not going to change who I am for anyone. So I welcomed them with open arms and hoped for the best.

Sadly KJ was asleep when Kroy's family arrived. KJ was 5 months old and they had never met him, so I was super excited for him to meet his aunt, cousins, and grandparents. 
 
I had ordered take out from one of my favorite restaurants, Alpine Bakery, however by the time they arrived it was cold. Ugh, go figure! Who wants to eat cold pizza? So that wasn’t such a great idea, but I knew with them traveling all day they would be starving by the time they arrived.

Kim I hope that you leave The Real Housewives of Atlanta and be on your own show; You need to be away from these other women so that people can truly see you for who you really are; You never meshed well with the other women you were always against them, the part you played was putting yourself on a pedestal, while demeaning and degrading the other ladies; I do hope it is good-bye.

I love your home. It is beautiful! I love how you decorated a suite for your in-laws to make them feel at home. I wish you had asked someone to help you cook a meal to welcome them to your home. That would have said a lot to a future mother-in-law. Since you didn't cook, it would have been nice if you had put the food in serving dishes before you asked everyone to the table. You didn't seem to know your way around your own kitchen, Kim. SMH! Since it seems you have no friends who will tell you the truth, I will. The wedding jumpsuit was not the most flattering look for you. The stomach was just not flat enough to rock that look. I'm happy you found love, Kim.

Kim, it is so refreshing watching you & your family. Your kids are adorable & you inspire us all to be better people! There should be a full time show with you guys!

Hi Kim, I love the show, KJ is cute as anything. Don't swear at your Mom so much, it looks really dis-respectful. Keep your show peaceful and fun.

Not sure if you read these posts, but if you do, just wanted to let you know to keep up the good work. I love watching how much you love and take care of your man. The welcoming parties when he comes home from football camp, the small surprises, your attempts of cooking, the sweet-kind-supportive-encouraging-complimenting words you say to him. All of it. That is what will keep your man happy. It's hard to maintain that consistency throughout a marriage, but it's so important. So many women on reality shows now are always trying to show how poorly they can treat their men or how much their men do for them. OF COURSE, your husband should treat you like a queen, but some women tend to forget to treat their men like a king (I'm even guilty at times)....but a strong marriage is the foundation of a strong family. Just keep on doing what you're doing and don't forget. I just want to commend you on those efforts and would really like to see you two make it for the long haul. Congratulations and good luck!

Kim, I was noticing that you started your wig line and they are beautiful by the way. My question is "Have you considered making wigs for children?" My friends daughter was diagnosed with brain cancer (3 yrs old). She feared treatment b/c she thought people would laugh at her when he hair fell out. So I loved her and wanted her to go and didn't know any other way to help so I sacrificed all my hair (went completely bald to the scalp) to make a wig for her only to find out my hair couldn't be used b/c it wasn't long enough, and during treatment she lost all of her hair. I think it would be very humble of you to make a wig line for kids and/or even donate some wigs to St Jude's.

Kim,

I'm an avid - yet new - fan of yours. I like the way you are so real. So what if you don't know how to use a can opener. Some of them are tricky to use!! LOL!!

I wish you all the best dealing with your in-laws-to-be. Mother in-laws can be very difficult. Just be true to yourself - always. Kroy's mother is probably as nervous about the wedding as you are. Give her the benefit of a doubt. She seems like a lovely woman.

I'm impressed with the relationship you have with your children. The girls are beautiful, well mannered, well spoken, and as delightful as you. I love the interaction you all have with KJ. You have a lovely family, and Kroy is blessed to have you all.

Looking forward to more of your show.

My best, Kathie

Kim, My heart goes out to you! Your mom was beyond selfish about your wedding! I can't believe she never showed up to support you during her fitting with your mother inlaw! And then she missed your daughter's special day over her BS issues! And then she of course wanted to be there for the tasting with the famous wedding planner! Your mom had no rights to invite anyone to your wedding, even if she did pay for it, its your wedding! As for some of these comments from other fans its clear the negative commments were from people who didn't pay attention to your show! And Yes I have seen parents still pay for their daughter's wedding even if they are in their 30's! They need to watch say yes to the dress! A daughter is never too old to get married and have her parents contribute!

On a lighter note! I love the way you are with your son! Its beyond heart warming and loving! I love it! I think you have a wonderful relationship with your girls and they are all lucky to have you as their mom and be so wonderful to them! And of course Kroy, you two ar so cute and perfect together! :)

XOXOXOXO

Have enjoyed watching your darling family. I was so disappointed to see how cruel you were to your mother. I expected more than that from you. You are better than that. The wedding is over. I hope you are being kinder to her. I'm sure you wouldn't want your girls to be so disrespectful to you. Remember what goes around comes around. I love your sweet, loving, funny side. Enough with the f words. Just cheapens you.

Kroy has brought out the best in you and grounded you in a way that makes you so relateable to us single Mom's who strive to give our kids a 2nd chance at a happy, healthy, loved filled, family life!!!

After watching your relationship grow with Kroy, my son asked me..."Mom, don't you think I deserve a step Dad?" That question came after watching you on RHW of Atlanta & your meeting Kroy....seeing the relationship grow between Kroy, you and your girls and the love and family that exuded from that.

My son use to say .. ..OMG the RHW??? and he would go to sleep. At some point he starting hearing, watching & relating to how Kroy was new to your life and how he was becoming the piece of the puzzle that made you and your girls very happy. That prompted him to recognize that maybe a step dad would be a good thing. Ive been a single Mom since he was born, he's 10 now and he is giving me the green light to go find someone to be part of our lives. I hope I can find someone who fills the missing piece in our puzzle and also is the glue that fills all seems and holds the puzzle together like Kroy did for you and your girls. I am so happy for you & your girls, ya'll deserve such a wonderful man.

Kim, Your Mom is way out in left field.... don't let anyone tell you any different!!! You go girl.....you have restored my belief in fairy tale endings!

Best Wishes for Life!! Kelly U

I wonder if Kim and her dad have been very controlling with her mom. Kim is the little princess and now some kind of diva. Where did Kim get her wine habit from? To say on the show that she was buying her the dress because Kim Knew she could not afford it. She was there for you Kim during your marriage and the girls, your divorce, then Big Poppa. Could she be upset that Kroy's parents do not want you to marry their son. Her mom is still working and Kim's sitting on her ass, with all these homes, jewels, wigs, clothes and shoes. I bet Kim never speaks to his mother like he did Kim's mom. I'm not sure about Kroy now. Hell life has always been about Kim and it always will be.

Kim, the viewers have no clue about your personal relationship with your mother. Please refrain from making her out to be the worse mother on such a public format. She will not be able to hold her head up high walking out her front door. And you lied to her. I'll give you credit for admitting the lie and that's about it. One thing you do have right is that you are being "just you"; cursing, lying and acting immature. You definitely won't win any awards for that behavior. Sadly, I don't think your marriage will last. Lastly, grow up Kim and be more "real" for a change.

Note to Kim
Note to Kim

Good for Kim's Mom! It's obvious why she didn't show up for the fitting. Yes she was wrong for inviting people to your wedding, but yelling and cursing at her?! And excuse me, but parents of 30-40 yr olds do not pay for the wedding.

Kroy should comfort you, not chastise your Mom! You and Kroy owe a HUGE apology to your MOM. Stop behaving so badly on TV.

Kim, like the show, but that sailor's mouth has to be cleaned up. Kroy's family will be on the look out for being small town people. They are not use to the bling bling gals. If you want them to like you, clean up your act and personality. You even out do NeNe who can cuss up a tree. She is nasty. Hope your wedding goes well.

I actually love your new show. I must say on Atlanta you did not seem as likeable. I think people like Sheree were not allowing us to see the real you. In your own show, you are different, good different - love your best friend also. I can see how less stressed your daughters are and Troy is a doll.

Kim,

I didn't see the blog when you mother texted you she wasn't coming. I know exactly what you went through. My fiance and I are planning our wedding that we paid for. My mother got all upset because we didn't include her name on invitations. It cause a huge storm. I was so stressed out and my face started to break out. I almost stopped talking to her. I cried everyday for like two weeks. My wedding is in 3 weeks and our relationship is smoother. Thank goodness!

Be kind to mom...

Love you and your show. Was dissappointed with how both you and Kroy spoke to her. I am sure there is a history there, but she isn't going to change, so why not work around it. I quit raising my voice with my mother, years ago, it just seems to work better, and I get an apology, every so often. When your mom said "I was hurt" you could have said , sorry we lied, sorry we hurt you, but my intent was to avoid hurting you, while doing what I felt was necessary. I think either way, you would have been in for it, but acknowledging your mom, the way you want to be acknowledged is the best way to lead that relationship. I love that Kroy supports you, but issues with your mom are yours, and I would avoid 2 against one in the future, no one likes to be in that position. xo

ms diva2000,
ms diva2000,

it's interesting bcuz i was not a fan of Kim's on rhoa..i love Nene and how she has matured and is prospering, but the rif between Kim and her troubled me because it seemed as though Sheree was forgiven all when she tried to humiliate Kim on camera and talked about Kim like a dog and has no loyalty to nobody..enough about that hag...but watching Kim on this show is a nice welcome to what i thought was going to be a train wreck! I personally cant get into Kroy, but i love him for Kim and her daughters (for now)...i think he has way too many opinions and Kim is only going to take it for so long..Kim's mother is embarassing to say the least, not to mention, reaaaaaaaaaaaaaal unattractive (what is going on with her face?...she needs some fillers ) that was some tackey trailer trash behavior! Kim's dad has been an embarassment from the word go...even @ the shower, he was trying to dredge up business deals and it was clear that nobody was interested in talking business! Good luck Kim and I hope and pray that you get a good dictionary and learn some more words other than f---, mother f------r, sh*t, b*----h, and a**hole, to name a few .... let your actions match the life that you've been blessed with and leave the sailor trash box mouth back @ the river! I am truly happy for you and your family and that baby is toooo beautiful!

Kim....I'm sure that you love your Mother! However, whatever the conflicts that you and she may have?-that storyline should not be aired on TV-in my opinion:(

Do you really want viewers to make horrible comments about your Mother?

That's all I have to say about that!

Hope you give your Mother a WONDERFUL Day on MOTHER'S DAY!:)

Just Saying!

Kim..Just continue to be yourself. You are just a breath of fresh air. You are ornery and fun..don't change for nayone. I know your relationship with your mother didn't happen overnight. Just keep on keeping on..You are who you are and not many people can pull that off. Good Luck with everything that you accomplish in life. You are on your way.

I totally love your show. I hope Bravo keeps it on even after the wedding. I must say that it is so nice seeing you with Kroy and your family than with most of the ladies on RHOA! I love the fact that there's very very little screaming on your show, I mean you can actually hear what everyone is saying!!, what a relief that is. Congrats on the new baby and looking forward to seeing more of you and your family.

I completely understand where Kim is coming from with her mother. No one knows the history behind their relationship and regardless if she lied to her mother or not (which she admitted to), her mother has no right to try to take over her day. Clearly her mother is more interested in being up Colin Cowie's behind. My mother is also overbearing and emotionally manipulative and almost ruined my wedding day. Been there done that! Kim, keep on keepin on! I will say though that for a 14 year old girl that dress Brielle was wearing was entirely too short. There is no reason for a child her age to dress that provocatively. I'm not her parent though.

This is probably one of the most delightful shows on Bravo - to watch Kim with her children and Kroy gave me a whole new perspective of her without the stress and challenges that the Housewives (think: Nene) gave her. She is adorable and so is Kroy and his support of her. Thank you, Kim, Kroy, your girls, and Bravo for giving us a program that is FUN to watch!

Im surprised that no one said anything about how you treated your mother and how you cursed her out like that! Where's the respect? I didnt see the harm in her wanting to help out. You could have been a little nicer to her and gave her something to do as the mother of the bride. She could have helped with the flower arrangements or something. And what mother dont invite a few people to see their daughter get married? For Kroy's part, who is he to speak to your mother any kind of way? If the shoe was on the other foot, Im sure there's no way he would allow you to talk to his Mom like that. Im sure you would have been kicked to the curve wig first!

Kim,

I cannot believe how you:treated your Mom by lying to her about the tasting and by not only yelling at her and cursing at her on the phone, but Kroy was disrespectful to her as well. I sure hope it was high Drama for the camera because it was sad....but no one should treat their Mother like that. I'll make my prediction about your marriage as you did Cynthia's, you and Kroy won't make it past his next contract.

Kim, I just love u & Kroy & yr family. Wish, wish your show was on longer than 1/2 hour. Can't get enough of it. You are the kind of person that I would like to call friend. I rarely watched RHOA. Your show is so much more entertaining.

Although serving food to your future in-laws for the first time off of tin containers isn't the ideal, I think that considering you are receiving a large number of guests for a week, planning a wedding, taping a tv show and taking care of a baby and two children does make it understandable. As a guest, I would much rather be invited to a home that is fun and loving as yours is and eat from tin than to eat off of fine china in one that isn't.

Greetings Kim! Congrats on your new, really funny show! Nice to see more of your life without those drama queens taking up space (except Sheree!) And most of all, congrats on you finding the love of your life and the babies. And your girls are very sweet, and this show really tells of the bond and love you all have for each other. Very happy for you! XX
