Kandi talks Sheree and Kim's showdown, Dwight's birthday bash, and lunching with T-Boz!

on Aug 18, 20090

Hmmm ... Episode 3. Where do I start? Well I guess I'll take the Kim and Sheree fight first. Like I said last week, I don't get why it's such a big deal about the 'he said she said' on Kim's behalf when they all say things that aren't cool at one time or another. It just seems as though when Kim says or does something that isn't cool everybody gets extra angry. I assume I won't understand it until she does something to me, which I hope doesn't happen. Although I like Kim, I do have to say this: When you're having an argument with another woman, especially a black woman, IT'S NOT SMART TO PUT YOUR FINGER IN THEIR FACE AND CALL THEM A BITCH (especially in a heated argument). That's just a little food for thought. LOL ... I mean really, I'm not promoting violence or anything, and I understand that fighting amongst women is not classy. But screaming and pointing in someone's face and calling them a bitch while in a public place isn't classy either. Okay, I'm done with that one.

Meeting Dwight for the first time was an experience. He caught me off guard with the boob grab. I was already feeling self conscience about my boobs that night trying to make sure that they were sitting right in that bra. And I guess I'll go ahead and have a T.M.I. moment with ya'll. My boobs aren't that big. So to give them an added boost that night, I put my Victoria Secret inserts in my bra to give me some extra Va-Va-Va-Voom going on. Can you imagine if one of those things popped out while he was doing his inspection of me???!!! I would have been too embarrassed! Speaking of the head to toe inspection he gave me. Does he do that to everybody? And would he have clowned me if something I had on or my feet weren't right??? Probably so ... LOL.

Hi Kandi:

First of all I would like to say, you are the realist one on the show. Secondly, I feel that Nene is just hating on you cause you have a "REal" Career and she doesn't. Your a successful singer, song writer, etc.

Who is Nene? A stripper from the past? Thirdly, I though your alter ego shoot was the best of them all, very creative, as you are very creative.

Last but not least, your fiance seems like an alright dude, but.... I think you should consider your moms thoughts. Your a beautiful woman, who can have any man she wants.

And forget Dwight, I thought he was very rude the night of his party, you can't just grab somebody's boobs I mean really!

Hi, Khandi you are my number one fan on the House Wifes. You also give me inspiration. I live in Milwaukee where the Churches are the most popular things that are going on here which is good because I know God for myself and if it wasn't for him there would be no hope along with what life has you to go through. All my life I know that God blessed me with a lot of talent to bring it out of me is a different story. I wanted to try to get across to you maybe you can help me with my music. I don't write music but I have a singing voice. My son writes music but it is wrap and he is pretty good. Milwaukee is no place to do anything about music. After seeing what you did for NeNe I was brave enough to blog u 2 c if you would be interested in helping me. I will come to ATL I have a neice who came there for School for fashion desigining. Will u please consider writing me a song and I can do something with it.When I was a teenager I recorded a church song with Andrae Crouch but that was in a choir. I know that God gave me talent and I pray that you find it interesting enough to get in touch with me. God Bless you and your Family.

I'm oh so glad that this season we have a person thats not full of drama,mess and two-facedness.You're really laid back and I like that.You're not with the drama and thats even better.NeNe and Sheree are such haters, it amuses me.Your fiance on the other hand,you may want to listen to your mother.It's just my opinion though.Your friendship with Kim looks like its ginuine, but I don't know what the future brings.You helping Kim with her song "Tardy for the party." song was very nice, even though her vocals arn't the best.I wish a good season!

Hi Candi,

I think you are a good person and kind of remind me of myself, in that you like to keep your distance with people and can be a bit standoffish at times, which is cool. I say don't trust any of them because they are all fake and haters, especially Kim. I have been watching the ATL Housewives from the start and Kim is repeating the exact same things with you that she did with the other girls. Don't trust her. Continue to be who you are which is very genuine and don't get caught up in the drama. Keep it CLASSY.

Peace, Riley

Well Kandi I personally think that everyone has an opinion and some of us will be assholes about it but I am going to tell you mine straight up .I think that you are a wonderful woman .I feel that your mother has your best interests at heart.And i got to respect that ,and I am sure you do as well .I Feel that she is trying to save you from so much heartache in the future.I don`t really know your situation but no man nor woman can be 2 places at the same time ,in other words ,he has to much luggage honey get out while you can .It`s not worth your heartache nor going against your mother wishes .

Kandi,I love watching you on the show!I like it alot more now that Kim has someone who is on her side for a change.I can't stand NeNe,or Sheree,talk about phonies.....I do think they are so jealous of Kim.I think you are such a honest and sweet person and it shines through...Keep on just being you and good luck with A.J.

Hi Kandi, Glad you are on the show. The only real one of the bunch. Stay out of all their drama. Be true to yourself. What can I say about NeNe. She feels threatened by you. ( a strong, independent woman who has a lot to offer the world) As far as A.J. is concerned, its a lot for you to deal with. You have only known him for a short period of time. Just pray on it. Let go and let God. Many blessing to you. Looking forward to your new project.

Kandi, Be you! Keep doing what you are doing. Know that your Mom loves you and out of that love is what and why she speaks as she does.No matter how you handle your situation never allow anything or anyone to erase, destroy and/or chip at your relationship with her.Otherwise,I lay no claims as to how and or what to do where your Mom and AJ are concern. Prayer does resolve much!

Hey Kandi I have loved your singing since Escape, & I know you wont let me down with the new projects. I really feel for you having to be sort of put in the middle of your mom,& AJ. I live an alternative life style,my partner & I raised my two children ages 3,& 9 when we got together. My mom is from the deep south of Ala.need I say more. She blew a gasket,like I honestly thought she & I would never have that mother, daughter bond again & that bothered me tremendously. Over time she grew to appreciate my partner, & I think me as a woman for believing in us, & not letting anyone sway my decisions for what I felt was right for me.16 yrs later & still in love girl. Stand on your faith, & it will be alright only you know what makes you happy.

Kandi,

Please listen to your mom. It's obvious a man like AJ has commitment issues, he just makes babies and moves on. You are such an example, don't ruin it. You r acting like he is the last man you will ever meet.

Hi Kandi,

I really like your hair style and I would like to wear it if it is ok with you. I just need to find someone who can do it. Any way, I haven't watched all the episodes of the show with you on them but from what I have seen, you have a better chance of not getting caught up in the drama. Be the listener, don't say much, and when asked to comment, STAY TRUE. Women need to know how to stay true to themselves. Stop putting each other down and build one another up. I have followed you since the group escape and I am happy to see that you are doing well. Keep God in your presence and He will continue to Bless you. And the next time you decide to get engaged, listen to your mother. She loves you and wants the best for you. You don't have to settle for nothing. I was once in your position but now I can truly say that because I did not settle for less, I have the BEST! And so can you. Your daughter wants you to be happy. When it's time for you to get married, she will know before you. Children are God's eyes. They see things that we sometimes can't. Close your eyes and listen to what she has to say. You will be surprised. In the mean time, Keep singing and producing. Look forward to your new album.

God Bless You and Your Child.

You bring tempo to the cast. You are upbeat and positive. Your new songs are coming together beautifully. Marriage is highly overrated. Enjoy Riley, sing your heart out, write in your car and please be friends with Kim. Feel like she is getting ghettoed. Sad part is that everyone thrives on gossip, no one takes the high ground. The show is losing the class and humor it had.

Hey, Kandi, I know you love AJ; but listen to your Mom. She is giving you great advice. A man with other children out there and four women to contend with cannot give you and your little girl the time, attention, or financial support you will need. WAIT ON GOD TO SEND YOU THE RIGHT HUSBAND. You will be glad that you did! Love your singing, too!

Kandi,

You seem like the most real to me. I love that you are on the show and keeps it real. Bravo to you. Dont get caught in NeNe or Lisa or Kims BS. Please don't! Keep your Woman demeanor. Those (Fan) shoes you had on the promo commercial was Hot.

Kandi, I must agree with JC. I decided to blog to tell you the same thing. Kim and the others have issues with mess. They love it. You do not have to allow yourself to get in the mess. When you are presented the mess, kindly tell them you don't want to get involved, direct them to Jesus, this will quickly get a person off of you.

I absolutely loved your mom and your aunts! Gosh, they remind me SO much of my mom and her sisters. You can tell they really care about you. Ultimately, it's your decision regarding who you feel completes you, but really consider the things your mom had to say. She only wants the absolute best for her baby girl. And I LOVE LOVE LOVED you in Xscape girl!! I still bump my Xscape songs loud as ever in my car!! :)

HI KANDI, I REALLY LIKE YOU AND THINK THAT U ARE A DOWN TO EARTH PERSON. WHEN I MET MY HUSBAND I HAD 5 CHILDREN AND WE HAVE 5 TOGETHER, HE ACCEPTED ME AND MINE. I KNOW THAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR YOUR MOTHERS APPROVAL OF HIM, IT'S YOUR LIFE ,YOUR MOTHER HAS DONE HER DUTIES AND RAISED A RESPONSIBILE WOMAN, SO IF YOU KNOW THAT'S WHO YOU WANT, MARRY HIM. YOU CAN TELL MANY PEOPLE MANY THINGS ,BUT NO ONE KNOWS YOUR HEART. BEST WISHES AND GOOD LUCK.

Hello Kandi,

I just watched the episode w/you reading your blogs and the meeting w/your Mom about AJ. The best advice always is to listen to your spiritual being. God reveals Himself through the Holy Spirit..which is that feeling you have inside that says what is right or wrong. Sometimes we call it our intuition.

When I met my NOW husband (as of August 15, 2009) all odds were against us and as my Pastor stated, "Ya'll should have broken up 20-minutes after you met". It's too long of a story to write about but 6-years later we are a healthy and loving married couple. The obstacles you are facing is nothing compared to the obstacles we faced. My husband and I are a living testimony of God's Love, Grace and Mercy.

Kandi.. I strongly suggest pre-marital counseling if you want to equip your marriage to be healthy and strong. When we started counseling our Pastor warned us if we could survive the first 7 meetings out of 13 we would be okay. This is what we started with: 1. What is marriage? 2. Needs list (this is so important. It was difficult for me because I am 37 years old and no man ever asked me what I needed. I didn't even know. We often assume he/she is suppose to know.. BIG MISTAKE) 3. Red Flags (be honest and discuss them) 4. If he were you, why would you marry him and vice-versa. 5. 10 Characteristics of a relatonship. Make sure you frame this because anytime you are in conflict you can use this as your guide.

Always remember to keep God in the center of your relationship.. now and once you get married. I know you want to please your mother but assure her she has done a wonderful job raising you. Now it is time for you to make the decisions that is best for you and your daughter. Again.. keep God first and He will work this out for you.

Take Care and Be Blessed.

Kandi, I love you from way back. You have to live your life for yourself and your daughter not your mother. This isn't the first risk you've taking your a business woman for crying out loud. I know you love your mother but you act like these crackhead kids who want a mother so bad the can't let go of a dream. If AJ makes you happy, marry him. Your mother has to much power you are not a 12 year old girl, I say that in love; your mom is wrong. Marry you man, your mother may or may not get over it, I think she will, if it's a mistake you will not be the first women on this planet to make a mistake. Nene, made a statement reading her not knowing whether or not you fit in. NO YOU DON'T, they are a bunch of messy/jealous/stupid ass hood rats who married men for money. Nene;Lisa;Sheree all act like a 17 yr olds girls who just started f......and think they are grown smelling themselve Nene, has a problem Kim giving attention other then herself.hmmmm she act like she want Kim for herself or maybe these issues are from her past rejections, well guest what you are a grown ass married woman she should focus on her husband and not Kim. Baby, girl marry your man,do you your mom has lived her life and made her own choices. Keep checking dumb ass Nene she's out of control since she gotten a little exposure from tv. It's funny how they all talk about each other and kim ( BUT KIM IS CRAZY) Kim is a good person, she is not crazy. They should have put Nefee and Frankie on the show with them, now they fit in-I bet you Nene woukdn't be all up in Nefee's face with that bull s...

Much love Kandi

Marry your man

Sometimes we are torn between love and family. Family will always be there even in your darkest hours. YOU have to look in your heart and decide what it is YOU want to do. YOU have to look at all options and decide what is best for YOU and YOUR DAUGHTER. I think the best thing is to pray about it and ask GOD what it is he wants you to do in this situation and you will recieve the best advice. Because in the end it you and A.J who has to live behind closed doors and no one else. Only YOU know how he truley makes YOU and RILEY feel.

I know it can be difficult listening to your mom's point of view on AJ.

As a man, your mom has a valid point. I am sure the brotha is a good man, BUT. Any brotha with 6 kids and with 4 different baby mommas does not present himself as being too responsible.

Do not jump the broom yet, you guys have not allowed the relationship time to grow and mature.

Viewer

I think life is hard enough and to add a man with 6 kids, will only make things harder. I admire you for standing up for him, but he seems uninterested in what's really going on. I think it was very disrespectful how he kept using his cell phone on family day at the Mummie exhibit. Whatever you decide to do, your fans will support you. We just want you to be happy!

Hi, Kandi.

I am divorced & re-married with a wonderful son from my first marriage. My son's Dad to whom I was married & divorced has not seen our son since he was one-year old. Effectively, I have been a single Mom with great support from my family. My second husband came into our life when my son was about 2 1/2.

My point in telling you this is that family is now defined as more than blood relation. My husband loves my son as if he were his biological Father. Take some time & enjoy your engagement for a little while. This will give your Mom time to re-think her position & A.J. time to prove to her that he is worthy of her acceptance. He should want to do this because it is important to you.

I had a long engagement to my first husband & it ended up in divorce anyway. I had a shorter engagement with my second husband & we are very happy. I know how important your Mom's acceptance is to you; but, give her time to see what you see. If all else fails, you have wonderful support from your Aunts & Uncles.

Please remember that everyone's heart is in the right place. How wonderful to have so many people love you. Include your Mom & your Aunts & Uncles in one of your family days. Have a barbecue. Let them get to know A. J.'s kids & whomever else you want to introduce them to. Maybe your Mom needs to see for herself how well you "work" together.

God Bless!

Kandi, I just wanted to say that my heart goes out to as you attempt to win your mom's soul in order to be comfortable with your decision to marry. I, too, have seen and heard the negative comments and opinions of those who claim to know your man personally, but they have not pinched my surface a bit. I support you 100%, although my opinion matters none, being as though I am not MOM! ;-) I believe none of what I hear and ALL of what I see, and you should do the same. I have so many female friends who are in the same predicament that you are currently in, and I just want to send you a "CYBER HUG" and let you know that you are a beautiful woman, who has a lot of "CLASS" (unlike Nee Nee), you are intelligent, independent, an excellent songstress, a great mom, and more, so you deserve to be happy for yourself, not for the comfort or acceptance of others. Mom's opinion does matter, and since you have been unable to reach her with your own painful words and truths, give all of your cares to GOD and know that He will ALWAYS see to it that you are taken care of. He will always supply your needs, and He will NEVER let you down. Hold your head high, pray in regards to your heart's true desires, and wait patiently on the Lord. In the meantime, CRY UGLY and do NOT hold your feelings in. As much as it may seem to NOT help at all, simply continue expressing yourself so that you do not become bitter by closing your heart off to others due to their inability to accept you where you are in Life in general or relationally. What you plan to do in your future, is your decision and yours alone. In addition, baby girl is #1 and if she is happy with your decision to make two become 1 in God's eyes, then that should encourage you along with God. Be good, SMILE all the time because your smile is beautiful, you make me SAD when you cry! I love you a LOT and wish nothing but the BEST for you and your upcoming marriage and future.

Agape,

TeShawna-MD

Kandi my dear,

Your mother only wants for you what you should want for yourself. But sometimes, even good things seem to come in nice packages, until you open them up and see it for what it really is. Your experience with this man for such a short period of time, knowing all that you know about him and rushing into marriage doesnt look like the smart thing to do at this time for you or your daughter, take it from a woman with a some experience:)

If love is true as it should be, marriage doesnt change it one way or the other. They can step out on you whether you're married or not to them. Love will wait if its true, will he? Just wait a little while longer, the real lesson in all this will reveal itself.

Kandi- God be with you as you jump into the frying pan. I am refering to the show. You seem to be genuine ane compassionate, watch out for the sharks. I hope you do befriend Kim, she so badly needs an ali. I have always admired Lisa - just dissapointed in her behavior with Kim, but she has addressed it and acknowledged it did not behoove her. As for AJ - my heart aches for you. I speak from experience on what it is like to be torn between family and spouse. It's heartbreaking. God be with you in your future choices. Oh, also I looove your talking and singing voice both! Be blessed.

#1 Always listen to your momma about men

#2 It really does not matter whether Kim is white putting a finger in a black womans face, disrespect is disrespect. They were both out of line. I would of knocked Sheree sideways, TRUST. Also, I am really tired of all this CLASS talk. I don't think any housewives ever exhibit any class. It only proves money cannot buy you class. To me true class would be not even partaking in such an ostentatious, obscene, childish show. I have to admit though you ladies keep it real entertaining. Just some food for thought, since I know you like to stay out of everything and all. LOL

HI KANDI, I WANTED TO COMMEND YOU ON YOUR HAIR CUT AND STYLE. I THINK YOU ARE THE MOST CLASSY OF THE LADIES. I REALLY HOPE YOU DO NOT GET CAUGHT UP IN THE MIX BETWEEN KIM AND THE OTHER LADIES. PLEASE DO NOT STOOP TO THEIR LEVEL.

GOOD LUCK WITH YOU AND YOUR GUY. YOU APPEAR TO BE A GOOD BUSINESS WOMEN AND HAS YOUR HEAD ON YOUR SHOULDER RIGHT. IF IT DOESN'T WORK OUT, HE LEAVES WITH WHAT HE BROUGHT INTO THE MARRIAGE. YOU CATCH MY DRIFT!!!!!!! BUT I AM HOPING FOR THE BEST. GOOD LUCK
