Ok, so it has taken me a week to finally sit down and write my blog. I had to perform this week and I had a million things going on leading up to the show. Needless to say, I got behind on my blogging duties. I found last week's episode to be very interesting. Well before I get on that episode should I comment about the extended director's cut of the Kim and Sheree fight? Hmmm ... not really. That was just a big mess. I did find the part about Lindsay Lohan's dad being there a little funny. By the way, who was that dude with his hands around Kim's hips? I asked her about it and she said it wasn't how it looked. Well it looked pretty incriminating ... I hope Big Poppa doesn't watch that.
Well back to last week's episode. Let's start with Kim's nanny. If she would have told my daughter, "You're going to hell," please believe ALL HELL WOULD HAVE BROKEN LOOSE on her ass! My mouth dropped open when she said that. What type of thing is that to say to a child? Especially in front of their mom who pays you! Kim seems to let a lot of things slide with a lot of people in her life. She definitely needed to fire her.
Like I told ya'll a couple a blogs ago I check my Twitter page often to see what people are thinking. On Twitter everybody had lots to say about NeNe and me. Well let me start with myself first. They made comments about the look I gave NeNe. To be honest I didn't even realize that I gave her that crazy look until I watched it. I really wasn't trying to be shady with her and we didn't have any problems that night so it didn't seem like she took offense to the way I looked at her, at least not that day. When she said "Would you like for me to serve you?" I thought she was trying to be funny. So that's why I was being sarcastic when I said, "Isn't that sweet, you offering to serve us." After that she started playing around singing "Tardy For The Party" all crazy sounding and I was thinking 'OK ... you're just gonna make fun of Kim's song while she's standing here ... alrighty then.' I didn't have an attitude. I just don't hide what I'm thinking very well. I've always been told I have that problem.
Kandi....looks like you hit the nail on the head. I totally agree with everything you said on your blog. You are the realest person on this reality show. Your not a vicious, backstabbing, wanna be.........you are who you are and own it. I definitly like seeing you on this show. Hope you and Kim can have a great friendship because you both seem like you just want to have fun and steer clear of the drama.
Can i just say it sucks that my 2 favorite people on this show DO NOT like each other! LOL Either way, i think you're both fabulous & both have good qualities. I think you have a great voice & shame on NeNe for letting her "hater" shine thru on that one! I still got love for her though & you too, Kandi. ;) but i have one question..i know all about the "editing" for t.v., so i'm not sure about the timeline for sh*t talking, but i remember you saying some pretty negative things about NeNe from the very start of the show..whats that about? but p.s. before you join Team Kim, remember: she's pulled sum shady stuff herself & def swaps friends a lot, too. her & nene, then her & sheree, then her & nene, now her & you! hmmm..just watch your back girl!!
xoxoxoxoxoxoxo Cali fan
I wasn't thinking that you looked at her badly. I saw it and I also saw where you were coming from. NeNe's acting silly singing and playing around and you were just looking and laughing. You didn't look at her angry or anything...People are trying to start something.
Kandi, you are a welcome addition to the show. I love your vibe, your voice and how you handle yourself in public situations. You nailed Nene with your comment about how she gets upset when others talk about her or her family, but she doesn't seem to remember that when she does it. You just keep on keepin' on.
I LOVED this show the first season, thought Nene was hilarious and the rest of the women were ok too. But this year - it's an embarassing mess. I feel bad for you having to be around them, and I feel awful for the bulling they do to Kim. I wish they could see themselves through the viewers eyes and understand that most of us see them as rude, overly aggressive, bullies. And if Kim is really the root of all problems why is it that they appear to spend all their time talking about her yet she doesn't appear to give them much thought until she has to be around them. Jealous much???
Good luck with your music and surviving being around the other housewives!
I agree with your opinions of NeNe's little back stabbing. Wish you would have commented more on the photo shot incidient with your Mom. You have a great voice and keep your head up
Hey Kandi, I think you are the classiness of all the ATL housewives. I think Nee-Nee is very insecure and very jealous because you have so much going on with or with-out the show you have already made it. I will definitely buy your C.D. when it comes out. Keep people out of your business with A.J. because I can tell he loves you alot and EVERYONE has a past. Keep God in your life and you will never want for anything. Love you girl, Barbara
I think you are the coolest! you stay out of everyone's drama and do your own thing and that makes you a classy lady! :)
Keepin it real and tellin it like it is...that is why everyone loves you!!! I am so glad that you made your own opinion about Kim and didn't listen to the haters.
Much luv and can't wait for the new music to drop.
Glad to see you on RHOA. You are so down to earth and have such a beautiful voice. I cannot wait until your CD drops. :-)
My heart goes out to you over the situation with your mother and A.J. because you want the two of them to get along. Perhaps your mom is also afraid of losing you should you marry A.J. (or anyone else for that matter).
You have to live your own life on your own terms and do what is best for you and your beautiful daughter. Seek God for the answer!
God Bless you!
totally agree with you Kandi with everything you said in regards to He-He. Love you on the show! Team Kandi!
I just want to say that Kandi is, by far, my favorite housewife. Although, the term 'housewife' really doesn't apply to her. She is a working woman. I don't even know what the other housewives do for a living. I think that Nene is threatened by Kandi because she sees her as competition. Well, Kandi has stolen the thunder of all of the RHOA because she is the only respectable woman on the show. But, as far as being competition to Nene, she is not. So, tell Nene not to worry. She can never be Kandi and Kandi will never be Nene.
Go Kandi! You are now my favorite! I totally agree with you about NeNe. Her loud mouth and junior high school behavior has completely changed my mind about her. I cringe everytime she opens her mouth. You, my darlin, have a beautiful singing voice and is truly the only accomplished one on the show. The rest are just......Bravo's laughable entertainment. Don't get caught up in their silly drama.
I REALLY LIKE YOU. YOU ARE A GOOD DAUGHTER, A GOOD MOTHER AND A VERY NICE HUMAN BEING.
GO GIRL KEEP SINGING, YOU ARE VERY TALENTED AND A LOT OF MORE SUCESS WILL COME TO YOU.
YOU ARE RIGHT ON NENE. YOU SAID PERFECT.
YOU ARE ALSO A VERY PRETTY GIRL,
NADIA NEWPORT BEACH
I love your music before this show, never knoew much more about you then the music. Glad to see that you are a real woman. I love the show but I dont get all into the dream, it is just a show to me. I seat to listen to all your songs and realized that you have more souls then all the girl.
I hope you your mom and AJ work things out. A girl needs her MOM,
PERFECTLY SAID! I was always a fan of NeNe from last season, but she has really turned me off with all the trash talking she does. Seems you and Kim are the only ones keeping your mouths shut.
Lisa, Sheree, and NeNe all look bad this season. It's really disappointing.
Kandi, welcome...you are a breath of fresh air. Stay you, and honest- let the others keep showing the "true colors" your being a very positive inspiration to all. It was good to see Kim laugh and smile again because of you-as far as the others---who cares-Rule your empire and be honored and respected.
I applaud you on being a GROWN woman first and foremost!!! It's hard dealing with a lot of women sometimes (*Remember you have to watch and be simply concerning evil) but something tells me with your past dealing from Eascape you've had pratice....lolo!! We all go through being hated on... Christ did. So stay strong and never let them see you sweat!!! Your a geninue and sweet so forget about other's people oppinion about you. Rememeber God has already affirmed and confirmed who you are so look for no other. I'm praying your strength and confiences in this season of your life. Amen. ALL GLORY AND HONOR BE TO GOD!! BE BLESSED
Thank you Kandi for even having enough class to blog, even if its a week late. Your other castmates are TOO important to post blogs. Way to rise above the rest!
Keep ur head up girl...I do feel that NeNe has jealousy issues when people befriend Kim. But I do not like the way she tried to dog u and AJ with Dwight...they are childish and messy and they need to get it together and as for everyone who has issues with aj and his kids, sweetie as long as he takes care of hios family and keeps u happy it is not none of their business...don't let a good thing pass u because people can be such a hypocrite at times
i love you kandi, your classy, articulate and strong.. you don't need a man like the rest of the females to make it in life.. keep it up!!!
Although I love seeing you on this show, I hate that it puts you in the middle of the messy antics that go on in this show. Although I do know that this is a show I agree with you that I thought NeNe was being funny as well. I think you are in a league of your own. Even watching tonight when it appears that Kim is trying to rope you into talking about Lisa you just seem to keep your wits. Love you and can't wait for you to drop your cd
Kandi, u r such a cool person,I love ur mom, she only has your best interests at heart, my mother passed away 14 years ago and I would give anything to have her back, boyfriends come and go, but u only have one mom,ur mom doesnt look like shes a hater,shes probably going on a gut feeling and AJ has been around the block and up and down the street and perhaps done a sidewalk shuffle-he obviously hasnt been in any relationship for the long haul-a tiger doesnt change his stripe-even a nice tiger
Kandi, I'm sure you are a nice person,but you are not right for this show. You don't fit in. I hate to say this but you are kind of boring. Good luck with your album.
Kandi....... Gyrl u know there's nothing u can do to help Kim with singing. I don't care who she gets she can not SING. Just tell her only in her dreams!!!!!.
AJ is right you really need to stand up to your mom. I'm sure she lives her life and you need to do the same for yourself, don't miss marring the man you love because she has a problem.
I think Kandi is a bit boring for the show. I think she's nice and all, but that isn't why I watch the show. I'm trying to be patient...I just don't feel like we're getting to know her yet.
Kandi, I think you are a great vocalist.But l do think you should let your relationship grow a little life is just not running that fast. And your Mom really does not like him l do think she should respect your wishes even if you make mistakes. Your Daughter is beautiful too,Can't wait for the album. Be Bless
kandi...you're the most down to earth of the housewives. please don't fall into their petty drama. i like the other housewives, but they focus 2 much time gossiping about the other housewives.
You have to understand where NENE comes from when she speaks, I think its that people don't know how to handle some of the things she says, yeah she talks about people and they talk about her that's just the way of the world. Truth be said you and NENE are the most liked on the show so that says alot within itself. Now on to Kim next your gonna be topic of her discussions watch the last season carefully that's all she did kept stuff going. She likes to say she's real and tries to make everyone feel as if she is the victim, which is false cause she keeps alot of the drama going on. Thinking back NeNe doesn't get mad when Kim gets a new friend it's that she already knows what its gonna be, not trying to defend anyone but you better watch yourself cause i'll bet ten thousand dollars she wil have something to say about you. Her and Sheree's relationship started off the same with her wanting to be Sheree her twin and look how that turned out. That's just my two cents on the outside lookin in, but you keep doin what you doin and it will be fine. oh yeah thanks for doing that song with T-pain and E-40 that helped me get up and off to work on time!!!!!
HI KANDI SINCE YOU JOINED THE SHOW YOU HAVE BEEN LAID BACK AND MINDING YOUR OWN BUSINESS AND BEING A FAMILY WOMAN I RESPECT YOU FOR THAT JUST WATCH WHO YOU DEAL WITH AND KEEP IT KLEAN YOU HAVE A BEAUTIFUL FAMILY AND EVERY THING WILL WORK OUT FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY AND I KNOW YOU LOVE YOUR MOTHER BUT SHE HAVE TO RESPECT HOW YOU FILL ABOUT YOUR SOON TO BE HUSBAND SO WHAT HE HAS 5 OR 6 KIDS AS LONG AS HE IS A MAN AND TAKING CARE OF HIS CHILDREN AND RESPECT YOU AS A WOMEN AND YOU HE IS THE MAN OF THE HOUSE THATS ALL THAT MATTER BECAUSE WHEN IT ALL COMES DOWN TO ITYOU COME FIRST AND HE COMES FRIST WHEN IT COMES TO FAMILY (HUSBAND AND WIFE) MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR MARRIAGE COMING UP HOLD YOUR HEAD UP AND KEEP LIVING BABY.(loveyah)
Hello Kandi, Keep doing what u do i remember u back when Excape was out you were my favorite in the group always admired you and i'm glad u are happy with Aj and i give yall the best wishes to u and your family ur building if u fell that Kim is cool then you have ur own mind and i know u know who is a friend and who would be fake so i know u will choose the best when it comes to selecting who u want to be ur friend and i know ur choice will be the right one so keep doing what u do and can't wait until u drop your new album will be waiting.
I hope your mom come around but if she doesn't, you go on with your life. Your mom has lived her life and you have to live yours. I think NeNe over re-acted. I have the same type of humor:-)I wish you the best and I too, I'm looking forward to puchasing your new cd. Oh yeah almost forgot, don't let haters bother you, they're just mad that they don't have that big diamond AJ gave you ..... holla:-)
LOVE IT!! You are the only one truly famous, so I don't need to tell you to not get caught up in the "5 minutes."
Kandi you are very talented and have such a strong and sweet spirit. Continue being true to who you are and avoid being sucked into all the madness surrounding you.
I wouldn't call NeNe a hater. Everyone may not like your singing voice, i like it. You can blow. Let's talk about rude AJ. He played on his phone the whole time during your first meeting with all the girls. Was he chatting with one of his babies' momma's or a potential baby momma? I think i missed the part when it was mention what does he do for a living?
Kandi you have a lot going for you. Your talented, smart, and beautiful. Cut your loses. I know you love AJ with all your heart; but he is not the one for you. Momma knows best.
Why are you even on Housewives? Dont you have bigger fish to fry?
In regards to your husband to be. I think you should really evaluate all angles of your relationship, not to say that you haven't, but mama knows best and you're truly blesseed and loved. I think your mama knows that you are worthy of a great man, not to say AJ isn't, but he may not be the one for you.
I see you doing all the work when it comes to attempting to open the lines of communication between him and your mama, in my opinion he knows that you are a package deal(Riley and Mom) and you've accepted that he's a package deal (four baby mamas and children) and he should do what it takes to make a happy marriage to you, and a relationship with your mama or at least put the effort.
Basically follow your heart, but when you have to give explanations about a persons character then that may not be the right person to associate yourself with and in your case keep the ring on it.
