I want to apologize to all of you who intended to watch RHOA and got stuck watching the Discovery Channel, because who other than a gorilla gets out there seat and attempts to attack someone?
The tour had been stressful on everyone, tension was rising, buttons were being pushed, but until the no-class moose got on the bus, there was honestly no drama. Sweetie and Kandi had their little tiff, but they moved on. Don Juan and I our own little disagreements, but nothing major. So it was amazing to me how one person can cause so much havoc.
I had been on the bus for about four days when I had decided to invite NeNe to watch me perform at Orlando. I felt because she had so much going on at home with Gregg that a girls' night out in Orlando would be fun. I also wanted her to see that I had worked hard on 'The Ring Didn't Mean a Thing.' Why was I trying to impress someone who has nothing going for herself?
NeNe had negatively dissed me to Jermaine Dupri on the set of her intern interview for a local news station here in Atlanta. Why? Why did you need to bring up my name? Kim's 32 trying to be a pop star? Yes ma'am, and I am getting paid and having a blast doing it while you're an intern. Some people know they won't get any attention unless they throw in someone else's name. I mean after all that's how she sold her book (I got a whole chapter).
So we get on the bus and head on our way down to Miami for Cynthia's bachelorette weekend and our last performance. I called my good friend Thomas and let him know we were headed his way. I informed him that Don Juan and Sweetie needed rooms as well, since we would be staying at his multi-bedroom estate and he had plenty of room. But NeNe had to open her mouth and say, "Don Juan and Sweetie can't stay!"
What? Did NeNe really think Kandi and I were just going to Kick Don Juan and Sweetie out to a hotel when there was plenty of room for them at Thomas' house? No, NeNe! It doesn't work that way. She started pointing her finger and getting loud, and I was over it. She called my assistant a "slave," and that's when she crossed the line.
Honestly you can see the GREED and ENVY in Nene's face. For you, it's just business. You are trying to make a name for yourself and a home for your kids. Nene is being competetive and she is clearly jealous of your success. The song she thought would make you look like a fool is now paying your bills. She pulled the racism card, but let me ask you this; if you were a black woman would she have attempted to strangle you then? NO! In my opinion, she only treats you that way because you are white and she sees you as weak. I am so glad you hold your own Kim. It must be hard to be the only white woman on a show of all "strong black females", but you represent well. You may not see it as a color thing, but everyone around you does and that's unfortunate.
NeNe was wrong but two wrongs don't make it right, watch it with the name calling, that wasn't to cute of calling NeNe a gorilla.
I don't know Kim, I hope you keep your word about not being friends with NeNe because that friendship is toxic and violent. You're a grown woman with children - girls. They don't need to see that. I like you because you don't take mess off of anybody BUT maybe you're a little bit too forgiving and people like NeNe Leakes see that as a weakness unforturnately. I really don't see what NeNe brings to your life; and what she does bring isn't positive. I think it best to just keep it moving (as you say) and stay the heck away from that rage-aholic NeNe Leakes. God bless.
Kim, I love ya! No, i don't agree with everything you do or say, but I don't agree with everything my own family does or says either! What fun would THAT be?! Just wanted to encourage you and let you know that Nene's jealousy of you singing is so strongly recognized and felt by the audience, and she may believe she's fooling us, but she definitely is not! She just throws out insults and name-calling for absolutely no reason at all......and you have to react and defend yourself, but you never start the argument. NeNe is Atlanta's version of Jill Zarin: everybody's fav in season 1, then the fame went so totally to their heads that now nobody can stand to be around them for more than a minute because EVERYTHING now has to be about them. As Dwight would say, "How DREADFUL!" As Sheree observed, Nene's true colors did indeed come out at your friend's home, and it was NOT pretty to watch! CONGRATS on your new baby, and wish you all the best. Proverbs 3: 5-6
I feek you Kim, NENE messed up big time!! She is jealous of you and she seems to need someone to back up her foolishness. You were on point this time and NENE is going to pay for this insult not only to you but too everyone that watched. She is not my fav any more and she's going to fall in the ratings. By the way you look great on UPTOWN magazine cover.
I didn't care for you much before, what with your proudly and openly dating a married man, your seeming lack of moral, etc. That being said, I did agree with you in the argument with Nene; she shouldn't have gotten up from her seat. I was on your side, emphasis on was, until I just read you call her a gorilla. You my dear, need to learn a thing or two. You DO NOT refer to a black man, woman, or child, as a gorilla. Ever.
Kim, please do us a favor to not allow NeNe back in. She ain't s@@3! Who would have thought that Sheree turns out to be a better friend than Nene. Funny things is the longer the housewives franchise goes on we sees everyones true personalities... ps. Watch your back with that piece of Kandi.
OMG KIM.. You are too funny.. Moose. I can see it now..LOL.. But, you know what you are so true in everything you just blogged.. Wish you best of luck and keep doing you. Sweetie.. you're a great friend to Kim and don't let the you know what.. change you by her ignorant comment. LOL Kim you are tooooo funny...
WHY DO YOU CALL HER A GORILLA & MOOSE? IS IT BECAUSE SHE IS A BLACK WOMAN? YOU PROBABLY SAID THE SAME THING ABOUT SWEETIE AND THE OTHERS. THAT'S VERY OFFENSIVE. NOT COOL, NOT COOL AT ALL.
I have to say I love you! Your crazy --but a good crazy.
I have always wondered why they heck people accuse you of committing adultery. If Big Poppa was separated from his wife and you are divorced there is no adultery . In the church it is seen that way. But those who are accusing you of adultery are for sure not church going people. So I agree you have not committed adultery.
Now on to Ne Ne. All season I kept thinking that she had changed somewhat and other than her altercation with Dwight in the first episode , she was funny. Then the whole bus thing happened and I realized that she is a monster. She has anger management issues as well as some serious insecurities. She has some nerve to speak to you like that when she was essentially your guest and to speak to your friend Tomas like that was absurd and arrogant. She has said in interviews that she wants nothing to do with any of you girls from the show. I say THANK GOD! Her 15 min. is up once she acts up on the Apprentice. The Donald likes feisty but not arrogant and stupid. She has embarrassed herself time and again and this time it is clear that she has lost most of her friends (except for the he/she Dianna) and her fan base in nil. How many books did she sell ? 4?
I wish you the best with the new little one and wish you a speedy and painless birth... full term too LOL
Please do not ever refer to a black person as a gorrilla again. Black people do not like being referred to as monkeys of any kind. NeNe was way out of line with the way she acted in Miama and on the bus. However, your racially insensitive comments will conitinue to get you in trouble that you don't necessarily bargain for. You need to spend more time thinking before you speak.
Nene was out of line, but you are more than a little delusional. The relationship with Sweetie is between you and Sweetie, but you definitely push the limits when you are out in front of other people. In fact, I think you are more outrageous towards Sweetie being your Assistant when there are other people around.
Sweetie is very like you, she is arrogant, she has a nasty temper, and she talks out of both sides of her mouth.
You need to get down on the floor and thank Khandi and realize a few things: 1. You can't sing. End of story. Sorry, it's all autotune and playback 2. You'd better get Kroy to marry you without a Pre-Nup, so that you have some money when your ass...ets run out 3. You were totally right about Phaedra and her baby's gestation and she should not have brought up your education, that was really rude on her part.
I like you. But you never seem to see how you contribute to these situations - you are ALWAYS blameless.
Which is BS.
I think you are GREAT! you are over the top and crazy you make fun of stuff and sometimes say stupid stuff...but you know i think you are funny! The MOOSE needs to move on...she is upset because trady for the party was such a big hit and she was nowhere to be found! I thought the comment about Sweetie being a slave was horrible but what do you expect from a MOOSE! Keep laughing, singing and dancing all the way to the BANK! But can you get another wig style...i really like the one where you clip your hair back.
KIM, YOU CAME OUT OF THIS LOOKING SWEET. I THOUGHT YOU WERE ENTERTAINING. NENE SHOULD HAVE BEEN ARRESTED . BEST OF LUCK
Kim, please take heed to what the women were saying about "there are certain things you don't say to a black woman". Here's one: don't ever call a black person a gorilla! Are you for real??? Other than that....Nene really showed her a$$ this episode. Violence is never the answer, especially for something so petty. Good luck with your career and your new little baby! :)
KIM, YOU HAVE EVERTHING IT TAKES TO GET FAR IN THE ENTERTAINMENT BUSINESS . KEEP GOD CLOSE IN YOUR LIFE, AND THANK HIM WHEN ALL IS WELL IN YOUR LIFE. A FAN OF KIM
Good for you Kim standing up to Nene. I will say the opening of this blog was HILARIOUS!!! Seems as though you and Sweetie have a great strong relationship. Love it.
Kim, I really don't think you are a rasist. I believe with all my heart that you would treat any one like that. No matter the color. You are just a real "trip". One who likes attention. I have to admit I was getting upset too. I had to keep telling my self " you are not seeing the entire experience just pieces of the show- don't get offended". Yes- Ne Ne went too far and in my opinion she was venting. You happen to get caught in her whirl wind.I really think you believe you are one of the girls and you are a sista. Just don't make a mistake and get to comfortable and use the N word (just becuse they may say it to each other) . I don't think anyone could save you from that.
You were 100000000000% in the right. Nene is a beastly bully. At least one good thing came out of this fiasco....now it's plain for the world to see. She's gotta go. She's heading straight into Danielle Staub-land.
Kim you still don't get I don't like the way you speak to Sweetie but if she is ok with being talked to like a person beneath you that is one that but you can' t call a black woman a gorilla or a moose.
That is very disrespectful. I agree NeNe went proably further than she wanted to but your comments are going to turn a lot of black women away from you if they read this blog and the way you do treat Sweetie.
I hope Sweetie don't regret how you talk to her and I am not a dumb ass for not agreeing with her that you need to speak with more respect to her!
Kim, I hope you realize that Nene is not not a true friend. I know friendships are hard to come by, especially being female. I misjudged your character towards Nene in the past. I can clearly see now where you you were coming from. I wish the best for you and your family.
Kim u can't sing! You have no class because u sleep men with money does not make u a class act! U have zero talent and if not for Kandi's beats and producing you would still be seeking help! Apparently u need Ne- Ne to validate you or why else would invite her! I dont care how long you have known sweetie or how much u pay she is a FOOL
You have not been my favorite on the show, but I was impressed by how you behaved yourself. You tried to calm everything down at Tomas' home and Nene proceded to embarrase herself even more. Stay away from Nene, she is crazy and has some serious anger issue. Wish you all the best on your song and future!
Kim you're cool. NeNe was so wrong for treating you the way she did. She's been rolling her eyes since day one, every time she'd hear your song, or watch you perform. That's not what Friends do. She should have your back, regardless of whether she thinks you can sing or not. Your happiness should mean everything to her and vice versa, if your friendship is genuine. She is not geniune. One minute, ya'll cut up and laugh it up, the next minute she's ready to snap your neck. With friends like that, you don't need enemies. She had no right to tell you who you can invite to your Friend Thomas's house, I would've told her to kick rocks and go check into a hotel. Seriously, that was so wrong. She's the one that needs to grow up, stop hatin, and get a life.
Kim, you bear some of the brunt for this nightmare simply by allowing NeNe into your life. While you may not realize it, you are encouraging her to pull these shananigans -- it's like leaving your front door open/unlocked and hoping for the best. It's just a matter of time before _______ hits the fan! Don't act so surprised when NeNe (or do you prefer "gorilla"?) starts threatening you again. She will do it as long as you continue to include her in your life. She is toxic. Best of luck to you.
Kim I agree with you to a certain extent. Nene showed little class, morals etc. She should not have been violent, or rude in front of your friend (who allowed her to stay in his home). Also, inviting Diana who was rude to you (when you were the person who set up the accomodations) was out of line. So the world knows Nene lacks class (but didn't we all know that?) She does all this under the guise of "keeping it real"-but I (and most of the other viewers) suffered from observational embarassment watching her on Sunday. But you need to read more about the history of blacks in America dear, maybe then you will know certain words like "gorilla" are not appropriate ways to refer to Nene's boorish behavior. Do better Kim...You are going to catch flack for the gorilla comment.
OMG! I can not believe that you called a BLACK WOMAN a Gorilla, and you started that off in your first sentence. If someone called you a RACIST today you may as well be able to understand why they are saying it. And you do speak to Sweetie like she is some slave and you are the Queen. I am not sure if Sweetie is having a hard time in this economy or what, but a real woman of color would have put you in your place the first time you called them the B word, let alone the things that you ask of her. It looks so degrading on TV and says alot about your character. You and NeNe need to NOT be friends ANYMORE. You both are walking in two different directions, and if you don't want to hear the truth about yourself, then you need NOT to be friends with NeNe.
I really hope that you mean this and stick to it as well. It's a form of bullying done by grown a?? women with no class. I always noticed how NeNe is always willing to throw you under the bus and talk about your relationship with Big Poppa. You and NeNe were friends for a long time. I bet you know a lot about things that she has done in the past. She seems to go for the jugular when coming at you. I think that you should give her a taste of her own medicine.
I wish you well and I love your daughters. They are absoutely beautiful and adorable. Tell Sweetie to stand her ground, she is not the hired help.
Best wishes to you and your family.
Kim REALLY needs too watch her WORD play when refering to other people! especially people of color!! like her hair stylist told her on the tour bus about sweetie " u may not see color lines but everybody else does" !!! If her an ne ne dont get along fine but to refer to her a GORILLA is not something she should be saying in a BLOG!! WATCH YOUR STEP KIM! THE SHOW WOULD BE BETTER WITHOUT YOU!! PERSONALLY I NEVER THOUGHT YOU FIT IN WITH A CAST BLACK STRONG WOMEN ANYWAY!
You are doing your own thing, your own way, and doing well. Do not let anyone else steal your shine. NeNe is going through her own thing, and is probably jealous. Sweetie is grown, and needs no protection. Sheree probably said it best, "Kim is laughing all the way to the bank..."
Kim, you should not have let NeNe back into your life to that extent!! It was totally wrong for her to bring up your name during that interview, you had nothing to do with Jermain Dupri?? Although your relationship with Sweetie played out to be a little "odd" like RuPaul said, sometimes everyone doesnt understand the type of relationship you may have with a close friend. If she thought she was getting treated bad, Im sure she would have left. Keep doing what you are doing, and brush that hate off!!!
(Hope Bravo posts this time)
Kim, I definitely agree with the general consensus that NeNe's behavior was out of line and I don't believe you are a racist. Although your exaggerated behavior is comical at times, it is not always humorous the way you trash talk all the time. It distracts from some of your good qualities although your "down to earth" likeable personality still shines through.
I think the audience can appreciate your perseverance, even if we don't agree with your lifestyle choices. That you can appear proudly on reality television as a mother, revealing your prior controversial extramarital affair and now out-of-wedlock pregnancy with Kroy, that you can continue to perform in public under such scrutiny of your vocal talent, takes nerves of steel.
Good luck to you and soon to be addition to the family!
No Miss Kim Ne Ne didn't call sweetie a slave, she said that you calls sweetie a slave, get right Miss Kim
I feel you that you are just having fun with the whole "pop star" thing. And the fact that you have the over-the-top personality and appearance to pull it off is very impressive. I say do what you can do as long as you can do it. And have fun doing it. And, to hell with what ANYONE thinks of your relationship with Sweetie, because it is YOUR relationship w/Sweetie. So there honestly is no need to explain it to anyone.
But I will say this: You know that any comment you make on the show or on this blog is going to be disected in every way to find any hint of racism. So, the decision to call Nene a gorilla is going to cast you in a bad light. It makes more sense to deal with her only on the show and keep it moving with your life. This is not the 2nd time Nene has disrespected you. It's like the 6th. Seriously, girl, give it up and keep moving. She can't use you to further her career if you don't let her.
Congrats on the new little one on the way, and I hope the best for you and yours. But, above all, i hope you are smarter in the future in your dealings with Nene. Obviously, you can't avoid her alltogether b/c of both of your involvement on RHOA. But you can refuse to go to her level leaving her to act a fool ALL by herself.
SERIOUSLY KIM,I WILL ADVICE YOU TO FOREVER STAY AWAY FROM THAT LADY CALLED NENE. SHE IS OBVIOUSLY JEALOUS OF YOUR SUCCESS(MUSIC CAREER).EVERYTIME SHE TALKS ABOUT YOU,IT'S ALL ABOUT HOW YOU THINK YOU ARE A POP STAR AND HOW YOU CAN'T SING,GEEEZZZ,NENE GET A LIFE ALREADY....,FOR THE FACT YOU HAVE NOTHING GOING ON FOR YOU DONT MEAN YOU HAVE TO HATE ON OTHERS. KIM I AM SERIOUS,CUT HER OFF FROM YOUR LIFE,YOU ARE WAYYYYY UP THERE AND YOU HAVE NO BUSINESS GOING DOWN BELOW HER LEVEL,SHE IS A KILL JOY,HATER AND BACKSTABBER.I SAW ONE OF HER UGLY PIX ON MEDIATAKEOUT.COM,WHERE SHE HAD A VERY FAKE CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN SHOE.ALL OF A SUDDEN NENE LEAKS THINKS SHE IS A BIG TIME A-LIST CELEBRITY BECAUSE DONALD TRUMP ASKED HER TO BE IN THE APPRENTICE SHOW,NENE NEEDS TO BE PUT IN HER PLACE.SOOO GHETTO AND VIOLENT SHE-MALE.I HOPE SHE GETS WHAT SHE WANT ,A DIVORCE,SO SHE CAN BE FINALLY LONLY,BECAUSE I KNOW FOR A FACT,NO MAN WILL WANT SOMETHING SERIOUS WITH HER. KEEP AWAT FROM NENE LEAKS KIM, YOU DONT NEED HER TYPE AS FRIEND,SHE IS ENVIOUS OF YOU BIGTIME.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have enjoyed watching you over the last few seasons but I have to say you have become my favorite this season. These past couple shows have turned me off to NeNe. You are spot on about the jealously aspect. She can be hateful!
I have to admit that NeNe has shown a side of her that was hard to watch, since I was a big fan of hers from the start. I accepted the two of you to fight, we all could see that train coming, but how she treated your friend who was hosting all of you was OUT OF LINE. I hope for her sake she will change how she treats others, her nastiness and bullying is way out of context.I will be surprised to see if she is still an "intern" at 11 at LIve, because if I was the boss she would be gone! Who, especially on camera acts like that? I think her personal life with her husband is so unhappy she is letting it affect her other relationships. Very sad to watch...
Kim, you seem like a good person, and it is a shame that Nene decided to show her true colors on the bus tour. I said it on your facebook page, and I'll say it here: I *was* going to watch Celebrity Apprentice this season because she was on it, but after seeing her holier then thou attitude on the bus, Celebrity Apprentice has one less viewer this season.
I could tell you were having a blast performing, and she missed the point entirely. Shame on her - you don't need that moose in your life. Her loss, not yours.
Hoping "Ring didn't mean a thing" & "Google Me" comes out soon - will download them asap.
I hope you and NeNe make up. You two add some comic relief that really makes me want to watch. I agree that NeNe was way out of line, but you two have a sisterly relationship too. Maybe the next time (hopefully their won't be one) you can be the bigger person and walk away. I know that is hard sometimes, but you know more than anyone on the show what she is going through right now, and the love between you two comes across in the show. It would be a terrible thing if you and NeNe severed ties. Friendship like you two have seems like a gift to me. As far as the comments charging you of racism; she owes you a big apology, an explanation on why she felt the way she did, and a sit down with Sweety, yourself, and a neutral party. I think a guided con conversation about racism would be a service to all that watch your show (Joy Behar, Anderson Cooper, Richelle Carey, or Christiane Amanpour?). I believe too much of our media, social networks, and television shows, do portray people of color as less than. In an almost subliminal fashion our media (which includes TV shows, advertising, news pundits, the internet etc.) frequently portray non-Caucasian citizens in stereotypical roles. For example; in the many ads that we view we hear jazz or soul music (which I like and I'm white) if African American actors are performing. So maybe NeNe is sensitive on the way people of color are portrayed, and sees the way that Sweety waits on you in a stereotypical role that causes her to be very uncomfortable. I feel the editors of your show also should be schooled on our history of racism because they clearly exploit your relationship with Sweety. Stay funny...
Are you serious!!!!! did you really just call NeNe a gorilla!!!! Please watch what comes out of your mouth. SMH because you really don't get it.
I was a fan until reading this blog......you sound very ignorant and petty...Have you ever heard of being the bigger person? I can't believe you called an african american woman a gorilla.....you're out of your mind....grow up!
I really did not see what she said to Jermaine as a dis, it was a fact. You are over 30 and you are getting into the business now. Where was the dis? She was right, you DO talk to Sweetie like she is a slave. I have said a few times watching the show who the hell is she talking to like that. I am sorry but like Kandie said, it's HOW you say things not what you say. You talk to her like she is steppin fetch it. Me I wouldn't allow it but if she likes it I love it. The problem with the whole show is EVERYONE (Except Kandie and Phaedra) are always in each others business. Why do you care how long she's been pregnant? Why do you care about how much plastic surgery this one had etc. GROW UP! I love Nene but you can tell her marriage problems are making her bitter and it shows in how she treats you and the others.
Phaedra I like a little stuck up sometimes but she if that's all then I will take her. Cynthia, cute but really thinks she is more than what she is. She is NOT a supermodel except in her own head. Kandie, what can i Love this girl. She should have told you a long time ago......YOU CAN'T sing. Sorry you are horrible. People buy anything if the music sounds good but a concert with just you I would NEVER buy the ticket.
The past two shows of this season made me SO dislike NeNe. I do not know if I can stand to watch her anymore. Love all the other girls on the show. LOVE Kim!
Dear Kim, You have certainly grown on me, you have your idiosyncracies, like all of us...LOL ...but I am starting to see you as a very savvy, neo-feminist !!! I love to watch you push through your fears with being a pop icon, you go !! I love that you do what you want with no fake excuses, maybe a little whining at times, but no blaming other people like some of the girls do !! You and Kandi rock !!! I joined this site just to enter the sweepstakes and hopefully have a fabulous nite in the ATL !! Girl, we got our own little reality show drama going on over in the Throwdown ...Hahaha ...you should come check us out... we're all Divas, LOL !! Sincerely, MidgeFragnet - Madisonne
Good for you keeping it real and not losing it. As I was watching i was losing it watching what a disrespectful, hypocritical animal Nene is. You should be proud of yourself. Love your honesty and your humor.
I understand that you and Sweetie may have known each other for many years, but if I had a friend who speaks to me the way you speak to Sweetie. I would not be friends with that person. You are very disrespectful. If Sweetie is such a good friend, why speak to her with so much disrespect. You don't like the way Nene treats you. You treat Sweetie with the same disrespect.
