How hilarious was it when Sweetie (yes, that is her real name given to her by her mother) and I were "attempting" to jog! I could not stop laughing. I had a blast that day. it was 95 degrees out, I was sweating bullets, and that beer comes along...it tasted OH so good! I have only had beer one other time in my life. Tastes good on a hot day! Needless to say that was the last time I ran up until last month. I picked it back up again, and I am loving it.
Now lets talk about Kandi. I am quite shocked that she thinks I dont appreciate her and implies I never gave her any money for "Tardy for The Party." I did. There was miscommunication regarding who gets what from the sales on iTunes, but I for sure wrote her a couple of checks. That is neither here nor there, and I will never allow money to come between our friendship. Why did she bring me up to Ne-Yo? I am fully aware I am not a Whitney Houston, however I am having fun and if it wasn't for Kandi YES, I wouldn't have any songs out. I am NOT ashamed by my vocal ability nor do I appreciate my friend talking about me and my much needed "training wheels." Kandi has never said these things to my face, however I admire Kandi as she has had a very successful music career, and I respect her opinion. I enjoyed watching her perform at Uptown Supper Club. I think she did a great job.
Why is Dwight denying he ever told me about Gregg and the money he "supposedly" gave him! I could care less if it was $500 or 10k, you shouldnt go around talking about your friend. BTW Dwight did tell me it was 10k!
Sheree had me laughing hysterically with her one liners this week! It was almost as good as her, "Who's gonna check me boo" scene.
I was soooo excited and honored to get the call from Jeffrey Sanker, although I wasn't aware at the time of who he was. When I did some research I found out he was "kind of a big deal." Lady Gaga last year, Ke$ha and Kim this year! WOW! I knew who Ke$ha was, but I was being my "smart a--" self. I was really nervous that I would be performing in front of thousands, so I wanted Kandi to come with me because she has done this in front of millions for years. I know that Kandi would never do anything half assed and would make sure my performance was on point.
Hope you guys enjoyed this week's episode! Until next week!
Kim, I am EXTREMELY upset with you for telling Sheree that she looked retarded. As the mother of a mentally retarded child, I find it very hurtful when people use the word retarded when they simply mean silly, stupid, or foolish. Taking my daughter's medical condition which she has no control over and using it to insult or joke with other people is NOT COOL! Many people watch you, and some might even want to emulate you; you should be setting a better example.
People...seriously stop being so sensitive about the "R" word. Yes it does sound bad but it only defines those who allow it to define them! The intent behind the word was not directed at someone who was mentally impaired so it shouldn't be construed as such. Don't allow a word to define who you are...just like the "N" word will never define who I am no matter who says it or how!!! That's all folks!
Lets b real 4 once KIM you did not know who my man was talking about (ke$ha)!!!!!!! It was all over your face.
Your great Kim you keep me laughing, I think Kandi is good for you definately a breath of fresh air reality, keep it honest between you guys and you all will be fine, they should get over the retard word its not that serious unless you make it that serious, LOL
OMG geez get off her ass about the "retarded" bit! People are so sensitive these days u cant say or do anything without SOMEONE getting offended!!! Guess what if u dont like it then u dont need to watch the show!!!
@Kim I really respect an always enjoyed ur character,very down to earth n hated by many it seems for handln ur bussiness...do u...
Kim, singing isn't your strongest talent and thank you for acknowledging it. I love how people took the word "retarded" literally. She meant her outfit was sick, bananas, awesome, great. Not foolish......geez....... For example, when Sheree's gay friend said that her shoes were disgusting....he didn't mean gross.... The only mouth you can control is your own and yes words CAN hurt but they only are successful when you give them power. If you feel your children are "retards" instead of "special needs" then that is a personal issue. No one in the world is going to love your child like you do so don't expect them to (this goes to all the sensitive mothers of special needs children....) I don't know what went down with you and Kandi, but I am inclined to believe Kandi and I hope that you do not abuse this relationship bc she is a jewel to have as a friend.
Now there's another word we can't use! Silly!! Words are just that. Stop giving them so much power. Remember "Freedom of Speech"? I am sorry for people who have children with any serious medical condition but banning words is not the answer. Political Correctness chokes creativity. It should be seen as an opportunity to teach people about that condition.
I have a serious medical condition and I don't expect people to tiptoe around me. If Kim, (perhaps not the brightest most talented person in the world), chooses to use that word, so what? If you don't like it, change the channel. This is still the "Land of the free".
This is what I wrote to bravo. I hope they bleep it.
I have been a fan of real housewives since the first day but I will not be watching anymore if you dont bleep out when Kimt says retarded, Its never ok to say that. you bleep out faggot so please bleep out the R word.
Kim, You seem to be having a lot more fun this season. It was funny watching you jog, then stop for a beer REALLY.
Give it up people on Kim using the word "retarded" she was NOT intending it in the context you are suggesting. I am TEAM KIM all the way and always will be, she is beautiful and hilarious to boot.
You do realize that Dwight through you under the bus to save his behind with NeNe? Don't think she isn't going to bring it up and use it against you. In her last blog she was less than nice. Stick with being friends with Kandi. She seems to be the only person "real" with you.
Drinking a beer after "exercising" is not a very positive image to send out.
Please show us just once what you look like without a wig. Seriously all the scracthing, adjusting, flipping you do is annoying!
Yes people are sensitive when the "R" word is thrown around. Why do you have to demean others by using that word? Use a dictionary - there are lots of words available that do not insult the mentally challenged.
Dixieland...I won't be as rude as the others on here just simply telling you to get over it. You have the right to express your opinion just like anybody else on this board. I just wanted to clarify something for you. When Kim told Sheree that she looked "retarded" she actually was giving her a compliment about how hot/gorgeous she looked. The word wasn't being used to poke fun or demean Sheree in this instance. Sheree's hair stylist used the word "disgusting" to describe her shoes. In that instance, he was referring to the hotness of her shoes. Words are just words, you'd be a lot less disapointed if you wouldn't take them personally. I know it's easier said than done, but just a bit of advice. I'm sure your daughter is happy and beautiful!
OMG!! Kim did not mean retarded in that way. She used the word in describing Sheree's outft that night. Every state has their own slang. This may be theirs in HotLanta.
If kim said the N word and it was not bleeped people would start Riots! It is Hurtful just like the R word.
You are a funny lady. Sometimes in your interviews I can't tell if you are being serious or a smart ass which is the funny thing. I have to say, I actually like you all except that short little pregnant one. Somebody get the stick out of her a**. Oh and the retarded remark...I am reading the above comment. Cut me a break...these are reality shows and nobodys feelings are spared!!! I actually thought it was a funny description of how great she looked. My friends usualy say "sick" or "crazy" but retarded worked!!! I am sure a lot of white girls took offense to Sheree's remark about a white girl caught in a black woman's body with respect to her inability to dance. My first reaction was...she never met white girls from Brooklyn, NY but it was actually a funny line!!! Best of luck to all of you!!!
Kim....I have to love you, you are to funny...Just keep us laughing in between the mess that you are always in on. Keep being funny.
Kim, I LOVE YOU... Yes, Dwight through you under the bus. In episode 1 when PHAT PHAEDRA is at his house he tells her that he loaned Gregg $10,000. Dwight is a washed up Queen, a has been that still wants to be! NEXT. I love your one liners. I love that you don't take yourself seriously and you can poke fun at yourself. Stay true to you.
The difference in white girls and women of color are white girls don't take offense to every remark made with regard to the color of their skin. We take it at face value and being white and from southeast Georgia, I thought the remark was too funny.
Please share with me where you got that amazing white long tail shirt from? The one you wore to the shoe exhibit where Nene got into it with Dwight. Please let me know. I love it. U ROCK.
Come on. Calling someone retarded is just like saying something is "gay". Your basically calling that person stupid. A gay man taught me a lesson when I called a friend "gay" for doing something silly. I learned something that day.
Love that you can give credit where credit is due....to Kandi. Way to go...don't forget the people who help you achieve your dreams!
Kim, you are by far not my favorite housewife but these people who have an issue with the "retard" comment can suck it as Kathy Griffin would say. I"m so tired of being politcally correct, what happened to free speech. Get over it people and move on. There are more important things to worry about in life.
PS Kim, I have to say the hair scratching and pulling is annyoying. I want to see your real hair.
Kim, Kandi was very generous in giving you an opportunity to sing and sharing a very good song with you. If she feels unhappy with the sharing of profits she does have a right to express her opinion. She was extremely polite and she deserves the credit.
If I was ever a fan, you lost me at "I came out the the womb chasing d***"
Gross, you have daughters who will see this one day, hopefully not soon. I'm EXTREMELY liberal but thought that was just icky.
Kim- love ya girl. I hope that your relationship with Ne Ne improves you two are good together. ne ne just needs some anger management servces (l0l).
I do agree with you that Kandi was vey critical of you that she visited your home. When she does ti again you need to check her on it. Don't let anyone be rude to you in your own home. Yes she is talented but it doesn't give her the right to judge you.
Kim.. i need to know what kind of dog you were holding in last nights episode!?(episode2) the cute adorable little black one that looks like a little bear!!
Kim is my pale sister; I understand her when it comes to hair loss, because I have lupus and my edges and frontal falls out all the time. But I have been blessed to have learned to cover it to the point of that a person has to guess if it's mine. Her hair is beautiful except for that little area. All she needs is a lace frontal which would fix that right up. This is positive criticism and its something that we should all endure from time to time.
But I still luv you Kim!!!
Team Kim!!!! Kim as U Know U have 2 Beautiful Daughters, But I can't Help 2 Get Over the Fact that Your Older Daughter Looks Like A Young Brooke Shields:) Love U Kim and Wish U and ur Family Much Happiness
hi kim...love you..you and your girsl are blessed...enjoy your life.. i have a question. who's handbag was that you put on your kitchen counter in this weeks show... 10/12/21 it looked like a python with studs... THANKS, toni..
Wow Kim... just wow... I honestly didn't believe you could write an insightful blog, but you totally called Kandi out without being a bitch about it. That's amazing. Keep it up, you're getting your side out without being nasty, rude or hostile. I love it!
I agree, as the mother of a child with a disability I think it it very ignorant for people to say that word, it's offensive and demeaning. Wasn't a big Kim fan before and definitely not one now.
Kim, you should have described Sheree's outfir as "sick", if you must use slang. It would have made the same impact, however it would not have offended millions of viewers the way your ill use of the word retarded did. As a mother of two intellectually normal children you should show more empathy for those less fortunate. Therefore, think before you speak and choose your words carefully.
Hey Kim love yah on the show, it wouldnt be the same without yah! I need to see more shoes from you this season!
Some people are way too sensitive and that's why have all of the "politically correct" BS now! So, she said "retarded." Get over it! She wasn't trying to be disrespectful to you people who she doesn't even know. Put on a pair of big girl panties and deal with it! As for chasing d!ck...She's a grown woman! There's a lot she's going to say or do that my affect her kids down the road, but I wasn't scarred for life hearing my mother talk about her pot use in the 70's. Grow up people. Kim, you are the sh!t, girl and I love you! Just be yourself and if people don't like, well, they know where the door is!
"Politically correct" is taking away freedom of speech now. I am all for watching how you address people, but it seems nowadays.. everyone is offending by something. I think we are coddling people too dang much. I like the big girl panties comment. SOOOO true.
You are just hilarious. Seriously. Whenever you're on camera I am smiling. I like how you don't over-dramatize fights -- you seem like a really good friend, it'd be easy to get along with you!!
Lookin' good in those yoga pants too!
