Cast Blog: #RHOA

The Discovery Channel

Kim addresses the fight with NeNe and explains her relationship with Sweetie. 

 

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. 

Lets rewind.

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.

For years, I have sat back and let NeNe go at me and even get physical with me, but this was the last time for me. So Kimmy came out, and Kimmy wasn't playing. I let her know what the deal was, and she didn't like it.

As soon as she got her a-- off that seat I knew it was done between us. Forever. I accepted her back into my life again, but now she's out. Fool me once shame on YOU, fool me twice shame on me! There was so much more you all didn't see, and lucky for her it wasn't aired. She has no class, self control, or morals if she thinks she could put her hands on me. She even said she would snap my neck! It's just sad. It is OK to disagree or get upset, however under no circumstances does it give you any right to get physical and put your hands on someone.

Well while she's snapping necks, I'll be writing checks. Something she only wishes she could do!

Let's talk about Sweetie. Sweetie (yes, yes, yes that is her legal name) has been with me for eleven years. We have been through a lot together: a divorce, Ariana's arrival into the world, three moves etc. She is as close to me as my brother. Now I will say that from what you see on the show, it appears as if I don't do anything for myself, but I do. Sweetie and I joke, cut up, and play around, but when it's time for business, it's business. NeNe has only been around Sweetie and I together maybe five times, so how the hell can she insuiatate anything. My relationship with Sweetie is none of her business anyway. Sweetie is a grown woman and is free to walk out my door at any time. 

Sweetie and I sit back and laugh, we are happy. Sweetie loves her job, and I love having her around. 

All in all, the three city tour was fun and exhausting... quite the learning experience. I am so grateful to Kandi for everything she has done for me and even just for asking me to join her on the tour. I must say that I have never seen Kandi that irritated before. She was very short tempered on the entire tour, and I am sure being loud and horsing around with Don Juan probably didn't help. I have been on vacations with Kandi and have had a blast, but maybe it was because we had our own rooms! 

xoxox,

Kim

 

Kenya: This Was My Season of Vindication

Kenya Moore opens up about her journey this season and gives an update on her pilot.

Life Twirls On
I love this title because it’s a testament to my life. This season has been my year of vindication. Thank God, because it was a long time coming. Some of my fans were so angry that I had been lied on for two years that they wanted blood. They and myself were angry and hurt that someone would physically attack me and never issue an apology for their actions, regardless of whether or not they felt justified. And who could forget the years of being called a whore a thousand different ways all in the name of Jesus?

Forgiveness
I’ve learned many lessons along the way and forgiveness is one. I have to admit I could not have done it on my own. I have my family to thank for that. I’m from Detroit and I was raised in survival mode from day one with a mother who vowed to “dog me for the rest of my life.” Therefore, I will always be a fighter. But my focus has shifted and I have too much to lose. I have realized I cannot make a person do the right thing, I cannot educate beyond one’s rudimentary limitations, and I cannot change anyone. However, what I can do is take responsibility for myself and sit back and let karma do the rest -- funny how that works.

My Sister’s Success
One of my favorite principles is you have to be as happy for another person’s success as you are for your own. I’m that girl who roots for all the girls to win. This isn’t me versus NeNe… One can’t deny that just six years ago no one knew who NeNe was and now she has had some acting success. I congratulate her as another woman who has worked my entire life in the entertainment industry and all of our accomplishments must be acknowledged and respected alike. There is room for us all -- not just one at a time. I refuse to pull someone down like a crab in a barrel; jealousy has never existed in my heart. With that said, it’s a lot easier to root for someone that is humble, gracious, and most of all thankful.

“As an artist, I’m sensitive about my sh--” –Erykah Badu

LOL! I’m no different. I single handedly wrote, executive produced, financed, created, directed, and starred in my independent television pilot. Although the viewers only saw a glimpse of what it really takes to produce a TV show, it’s no joke. My name was on the line as well as my financial investment. But if I am going to gamble, I’d bet on me every time!

All the girls and I were in a good place but I still felt vulnerable. It’s torture to expose yourself in that way, to allow people to experience and criticize your work. But as you know, everything is not for everybody. With that said, it is a comedy and I did what I set out to do and that was make people laugh and entertain them. They all seemed to really enjoy it, and I especially appreciated Kandi, Demetria, and Claudia’s enthusiasm and love they showed me during the screening.

As a producer, it’s most fulfilling is to be able to employ others and give opportunities to talented people who may not otherwise be afforded them. Over 50 people worked on this production, and I want to thank my cast and crew for their priceless contributions and my Co-Executive Producer, Brandon DeShazer, for always coming through for me. There was so much excitement on social media as #LifeTwirlsOn was trending, creating a demand to see the entire show! The viewers have spoken and we will be airing the pilot very soon! Stay tuned for an official announcement.

To Team Twirl:
I see you, I hear you, and I thank you for fighting my battles for me. A lot of people have followers, but I truly have loyal fans. You have my back and I couldn’t do this without you. There was so much new positivity for me this season that it is unchartered territory for me. Don’t worry, I’m still that fiery, funny, shady, crazy Kenya that will read you for filth while twirling on my 5” heels you all have come to love or hate. From Celebrity Apprentice to Millionaire Matchmaker and talk shows like Wendy Williams, you continue to show up and make my shows some of the highest rated ever. Love me or hate me, I appreciate the fact that you can’t stop watching me! I love and appreciate you all.

Now Twirl!
