Kandi talks about the tour and dishes about all drama on the bus.

I haven't blogged for what feels like forever. The tour I was on with Fantasia just ended on January 1st, and now I'm back in Atlanta! So I decided to blog a little about last week's and this week's episode. Well last week's episode was interesting. A lot of people were tweeting me asking questions about why I had Kim on tour with me, how I feel about the way Kim talks to Sweetie, why I disrespected Kim (huh?), etc.

First of all after last season during our off time, a promoter paid Kim and I to do a show together and it went really well, so when it was suggested that Kim and I to do another tour together, I was cool with it. We were taping the show, and having her open up for me sounded like something fun to do.

Now as far as how Kim talks to Sweetie, I don't care. Sweetie seems to not have a problem with it. That's their relationship. They talk crazy to each other all the time, and it's no big deal to them. Sometimes she says things to Sweetie that if she said to me I'd be offended by, but hey, she's not talking to me, and Sweetie can speak up for herself if she doesn't like it.

Some of Kim's supporters were tweeting me saying that I disrespected Kim last week. How? I don't think so. Everyone knows that last season NeNe called Kim a monkey with a wig on, so I was just making a joke when they were coming up with alternate names for the Thirsty Beaver. Now my joke may not have been funny to her, but I wasn't trying to disrespect her. Also when Don Juan and Kim were going back and forth about her being risque or not because she did "The Ring Didn't Mean A Thing" while dating a married man, I tried to stay out of their disagreement. But when she said, "Poppa never cheated on me," come on now! You all know that didn't make sense. I couldn't help it. I had to say something!

Now I like to have fun, but when it comes to rehearsals and shows I'm a little more serious. At times it drove me nuts that Kim was so carefree about everything. I understand that she's new to this whole entertainment thing, but it still bugged me. This tour with Kim wasn't a major tour. It was just a promo tour of a few cities where we were performing in clubs, but the fact that it was being taped for the show made it a little stressful. I can't be around cigarette smoke like that. It makes me hoarse. I can't take it. So Kim was kind of annoying me with that. Kim and Sweetie's loudness was bothering me too. I've been on vacation with Kim and Sweetie before, but we would do some things together and then break off and do our own thing and link up later. In other words, we were able to give each other space. On this promo tour we were on most of the time we were on the bus and only in the front living area of the bus, because the crew took up the back room. Needless to say we didn't have that well needed space. I'm real laid back, but when Sweetie and Kim are together they have a lot of high energy going on. Too much for me. So at times I was aggravated. Not to mention I was just tired of the cameras at that point. So if I came off as uptight, maybe I was.
