Kim dishes on the spa debacle and thinks the new girls need to back off. 

Wow, what an episode! Drama, drama, drama! Lets start from the beginning.

Like you all saw last week, I have preparing for Kandi's album promo tour for weeks. I have been going to Jan Smith and my choreographer Mitchell to make this perfect for Kandi and myself. I understand that since I am an opening act for her that my performances will set the mood for hers, so I want to make NO mistakes!

How cute was my angel Ariana walking around in Mommy's heels? She's a mini-me for sure!

Okay, now the part you're all READING for! Kim vs. Cynthia and Phaedra!

Now listen. Before I begin, let it be known that I did NOT intend to argue with anyone. I thought this would be a nice spa day for all the Housewives to get together and have girl time! But there is always one comment that changes the whole mood.

I asked Cynthia if she was serious about the friendship contract she gave NeNe. She said it was a joke, but I wanted her to know I thought it was a tad bit crazy! I mean, rehab... and death! Does she do drugs? Is she planning a wedding and a funeral? 

But one thing I want to address is that she said she is "weirded out" that: 

1. I wear a wig. 

2. I had a full on relationship with a married man.

3. That I 'think' I can sing! 

To respond: 

1. Cynthia, your hair changes every episode, and I am sure you have worn a wig in about seven of them. 

2. Cynthia, Big Poppa's wife was living ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE COUNTRY when we were together (Remember, you attended my surprise party in May at HIS house). Umm, no wife there... 

3. And you find it weird that I THINK I can sing? Well, Cynthia, I don't believe you have a hit song, have gone on tours and performed at thousands of clubs but... I can't sing? Okay! Then you can't model! Because I'm pretty sure I have never heard of you before you joined the cast of the show! Sit down, new girl. Don't come for Kim, because Kim will come harder! I'm really not the one to mess with.

So we moved on from that. Then someone asked Phaedra how her baby was, and she got defensive and decided to give me attitude. Okay, bring it! 

She says I'm two-faced and rude? If I were rude, I would have shut you up when you said your baby was "7lbs and 23oz." Is your baby 7lbs 23oz or 8lbs 7oz? I know he was about 50 when you were "5 months." A lawyer should have her facts straight. 

She proceeded to tell me I am two-faced because I had SO much to say about her baby. We ALL had a lot to say about her due date drama, because she was clearly not telling the truth. But she came for me, because she knows NeNe will attack her, Sheree will pull her hair, and Cynthia will give her a weird contract. I've been attacked by worse before, so I think I can handle you!

Let me say that, I would NEVER talk about anyone's child in a negative way. I have two beautiful, healthy girls and a baby on the way, and if anyone dares to talk about my kids, I'm whooping some a--. So why would I negatively bash her gorgeous baby boy? I said it's IMPOSSIBLE for her to be having a baby at seven months, and if she was, she was having either a school bus or an alien, because no doctor would even consider delivering a baby at 28 weeks!

I told her I was a nurse and she proceeded to say she didn't believe me, and she wanted to see the documentation that proves it! Okay, watch it, because now you're insulting my intelligence. I don't need to go around Atlanta bragging about my degrees. I'm sorry Fake-dra, but I don't carry my education documents in my Louis bag! You're saying I was never a nurse, I'm saying its impossible for you to have a child at 7 months. Okay! Fair, thats fine!  Stop telling lies about me, and I'll stop telling the truth about you! I've been dealing with BS from crazy women for two seasons now, I'm definitely not backing down to the new girls. 

Until next week,

xoxox

Kenya: I'm More Empathetic Toward Apollo

Kenya Moore weighs in on the drama between Phaedra and Apollo.

GROWING PAINS
Claudia has a new home, new job, new friendships that are developing, and a new life. That is a lot of stress for anyone to handle. Claudia has always been the life of the party and the girl who is friends with everyone. To see her going through grief upsets me, because I have personally witnessed her extending an olive branch to all of the women, even some who have made it their mission to disenfranchise me. It makes me sad to see that they are being punitive simply because I introduced her to the group and they are not willing to give her a chance. Like me, Claudia is a fighter and strong, but we all have our breaking point.

PON DE REPLAY
Cynthia was amazing! As an actor you have to be willing to take chances, make and commit to strong choices. This project is important to me, because it’s not only being completely financed by my company, but it is what I enjoy doing the most in my professional career. I love creating projects and producing. The great thing about Cynthia’s audition is that she came to play. I love it when an actor goes for broke and that she did!

DEAD MAN WALKING
Some people love to criticize me for having an opinion about Phaedra and Apollo or anyone else on the show at this point, as if somehow it is never any of my business. Despite the fact that this is a show where we discuss our issues, thoughts, and observations of one another. We may not agree, but I am entitled to and allowed to provide my input. We may not agree, however, no one and nothing is off limits when issues are put out there for public consumption.

Additionally, I’d like to point out that Phaedra and one other laughed, taunted, and tried to demean and humiliate me about Walter and my African Prince. In fact, Phaedra took pride in and reveled in the demise of my relationships, challenges having children, and my relationship with my mother. Some viewers have selective memory when it comes to my history on this show. They would like to conveniently forget when she said, “You can’t turn a whore into a housewife,” and that was PRIOR to Apollo accusing me of propositioning him.

With that said, I have empathy for those children and I am a forgiving person. In this case, I’m not judging her actions. I’m stating facts, history, and sharing my thoughts.

THE PHAEDRA FILES
It was very uncomfortable to watch them. No one wants to witness the demise of a marriage when there are children involved. Phaedra appeared unbothered, stoic, cold-hearted, and condescending. The truth is and remains that they each have said malicious and hurtful things to me to cause public humiliation and disrepute. However, I find myself more empathetic toward Apollo, because the difference between Phaedra and Apollo is that Apollo had the decency to apologize to me for what he had done to me. He showed contrition for his smear campaign and Phaedra has not. She is seemingly proud of what she did to me and has no remorse. Therefore, when I witnessed all the accusations about him threatening to burn the house down, having punched holes in the walls (which we did not see), and her mother stating she doesn’t want to come home and find "everybody dead," it seemed to me like another one of her smear campaigns, thereby making it easier to defend the cheating allegations coming down the pike.

#WHOISCHOCOLATE
What I see without any manipulation is a man who is hurting, angry, and afraid that he will lose his children because Phaedra refuses to bring them to see him in prison and who also believes his wife has moved on with another man before the bed even got cold. By his account, his wife, who promised to be with him until death do them part, really meant until "Chocolate" do them part.


#CELEBAPPRENTICE
We filmed the show over a year ago and it’s just now finally over! Congratulations to the lovely Leeza Gibbons on her win. It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. I received so much praise from people who actually preferred to watch me in my boss mode than on RHOA, understandably so. Although I didn’t win the title, as such, I won big because the kids of Detroit won $20,000! Despite the attempts to attack my character and integrity, I thank the fans who believed me and Donald Trump himself who stated he believed I had nothing to do with #phonegate. Thank you for showing your support and keeping me on top with respect to the ratings! Team Twirl has spoken and the world heard you loud and clear!

Love,

Kenya
