Kim explains why she had to let Sweetie go.

on Mar 13, 20120

Last season I introduced you all to my assistant and longtime friend, Sweetie. I have known Sweetie for over twelve years now, and she is a part of my family. When I was looking for a new assistant, she was the perfect match! She's loyal, she's trusting, she's smart, and she knows me better than most people. She's been there with me through three moves, a divorce, many relationships, and so much more. We are so close that it sometimes made a business relationship impossible.

Sweetie began to become a bit lazy, she didn't seem like herself anymore, and it worried me. The last thing I want is for our relationship to be ruined because of my role as her boss. Because of those feelings, I had to let Sweetie go.

That decision was best for the both of us, because now she's just my girlfriend. No obligations, not stress. I'd much rather let Sweetie go and keep her as a friend, than keep her and jeopardize one of the most important relationships I have! Assistants come and go but you can't buy loyalty.

I think Kim did change because she got married and she had to be a wife and mother for her family.  Family comes before friendship and work.  I think you should give Kim a break because she did what she had to do for her and her business.

In the season 4 episode "Shaping up and Shipping Out", there is a split second moment where Kroy is bending over Sweetie (who is holding the baby) to kiss the baby goodbye, it appears Sweetie either tried to kiss him or whisper something to Kroy. Please check it out! Sweetie then makes a split second scan to see if the camera caught it. Kroy completely ignored it. Then, when Kim walks Kroy to the car and returns to the house, the door is locked. I think there was some dynamic between Sweetie and Kroy that caused Kim to fire Sweetie. Can't say what it is but, if you look at the footage, it looks suspect, and then the locked door? The moment is about 52 minutes into the episode. Check it out!

Kim, it is hard to understand why people are so put out about you letting Sweetie go as your assistant. Clearly she is a lovely person who you care about and that your girl's love too. Sweetie, you are a fun sidekick and loyal friend, employee, and so much more. I hope Sweetie is seen on the show from time to time, or maybe become a regular! Everyone wishes her well.

Croy & Kim's baby is the sweetest thing! What an adorable smile and already so much personality! Croy's parents are delightful. The girl's are cute and adorable too. What a lovely family. It is fun to see a happy outcome for so many people.

Kim, I love watching you on the show, you are pretty much the only reason I watch it! Congrats on everything new in your life and I am so happy things are going so well for you! And screw NeNe no one needs that kind of negativity in there lives, you ywo may have had fun in the past, but she has changed for the worse and you have changed for the better! No one needs friends like that! Girl you just keep doing you and you will always be the most loved housewife! And for NeNe she is just jealous b/c you are happy and doing well and she is divorced and seems miserable on the inside, money might buy nice things but it really can't buy happiness! Love you girl! You just do you! And Congrats on everything and I love your new show by the way!

Kim, Keep ur head up, u r a classy lady and have a lot going for you. You've got a great life and its not worth the drama. Some of those other ladies (2 of um), just seem so jealous of you. Focus on your husband and your nice looking children. God bless you and your family.

Kim, you are the best Housewife of the entire franchise, AND you have the hottest husband of them all! I've really grown to love watching you and your family, and am very excited about your new show. Just know that you are miles above NeNe and her bully tactics, and she is clearly jealous of you because she is a miserable person. The expressions she gets when you talk about your great life are priceless, she's got jealousy written all over her face, even though she thinks she's coming across as indifferent. NeNe, you are NOT a good actress and we all see through your bs. Kim, you rock!!

Kim, Congratulations to you and your beautiful family! Enjoyed watching your successes while watching the RH. You have shined! Hope you keep it up. It remonds me of a saying.. As women- wives, daughters mother, sisters, friends "When we know better we do better". You are a fine young lady! Never let haters touch your soul. Bless!

Kim you are entitled to your own opinion, but so is everyone else. Te way you treated Sweetie is reprehensible, along with other comments you have made. You were wrong to confront Cynthia knowing you attended her wedding and made an out of line comment about her marriage lasting a year. I wouldnt have apologized to you until you apologized for that comment.

Kim, You are one of my favorites and I am so happy for you and your family! I am glad you and Sheree are friends again. Don't let NeNe and Marlo let you down. They are idiots and just plain mean! Good luck with everything!

Congrats.... on your new life you turned 360 degrees and I'm happy for your success..... BTW Sweetie was in the perfect position to make a positive impact on Administrative / Personnal Assistants everywere and she blew it avoiding work and neglecting her duties she was hired for... I would have let Sweetie go too

Kim, Congratulations on everything, baby #1, baby #2, Kroy, marriage, new show, and your most beautiful daughters Brielle and Ariel! Keep your head up high and continue to laugh at Nene and then pay her no mind whatsoever!!! As much as I think highly of you, Kim, I must now state the obvious. No. #1, you really do need to let the public know that you and Kandi squared up what you owe her for record that she made you. You don't have to spell out dollar figures, but please let us know that you straightened that mess up with or without your lawyers or things between you will probably never be the same. No. #2, please don't go and turn into Bethany Frankel. She hired Julie when she was no one, now she's become a name for herself and she can care less if Julie is with her or not - - and that is all because she ran Julie in the hole with her needs 24/7. It looks as though you went in the same direction with Sweetie. You encouraged her to be herself, you jokes with her so much until it offended other people, you made her a part of your family and just when she feels love from your family, you kick her out and make comments about how lazy she had become and how it's the best thing for your friendships. Who will you kick out next and please stop bragging about you having to bring up your two daughters - you were supposed to girl!!!! Don't expect too much praise from everyone because these same people who praising you today, will be cutting your throat tomorrow - trust me!!! Hang in there and best of luck with everything.

Hope you enjoyed your 15 minutes of family.

You were disrespectful @ Phadrea's event and yet you want everyone to believe you would go to Africa, you used these "black women" to help you meet KROY because it was Sheree's event that you went to support her dancing. Then you used KANDI to make "hit" and then talked about her and the song. You talked much trash about Phaedra and Apollo and then you predicted Cynthia's marriage would not last....... and last but not least in every clip of NeNe you seemed to find yourself in it with her so it will be intresting to see if you can truly stand on your own...I doubt it because you can't shine without these ladies of the ATL.. And well as for Sweetie being "hurt over the black people praying she was released from the bondage of being your assistant, may she should read some of your interviews and then she can see just how "good a friend you are to her!" You talked about her like a dog and then it was only when you met Kroy you "let her go" SMH and btw please get rid of those wigs!!

Kim is the best part of the housewives. Her and Kandi are the only 2 that keep it real on this one. I think its incredible how much Kim has changed and has managed to stay out of the drama this season. NeNe deserves all the hating that she receives from the women, she has become a terrible person and woman! I wonder if NeNe believes all the BS that comes out of her mouth???

Kim, I don't know how you put up with all of them, but I give you props.i know you have a past. Everyone on the show does but, you handle yourself well. They're all jealous because you ended up with a good man. Haters gonna hate. On a side note, why does every season have to pull the race card up for discussion.. I think it's an Atlanta thing, because everywhere else people are what they are. C'mon bravo?!

I think you are awesome! I will have to say I wish though that you would tone down with the wigs. If they looked natural like Dolly Parton then I could see it but honey, get with Dolly's wig maker. Other then that, I think that you are so cool. I love the fact that you have found love and you and your children are happy! Congrats on the new baby!!!!

Kim, It was interesting to see you try to lie your way out of EVERYTHING on Re-union part 1 including the part about not using any furniture purchased with Big Poppa's money in you new rental home. Like Kandi said "roll the tape" where you clearly stated when you were moving furniture out of your storage to your new home (with Kroy) that you had purchased it with the intention of you and Big Poppa moving into a home together.

Can't wait to see Marlo put you in your place on part 2.

Kim Congratulations on all. I am so happy for you. I was watching the reunion show tonight and watching NENe's face while you were talking. She is such a mean person and I hope you never get friendly with her again. I am looking forward to your wedding and the new baby. Sending the best for your whole family.

Kim, I think you are doing a great job with everything.. If your friend (Sheree) cares so much about you she would realize that you do not have time for Drama and out of all the housewives she is the one who keeps running back and telling you things that really compared to your new life are so minor. Overall I am happy for you just keep in mind that most of your drama is Sheree. You have been off to the side this show and making things work for your family and that is great. Congrats to you and yoour family !!!!

By the way Kim stop with the nasty comments about NeNe it makes it seem like you are very jealous of her. Your remarks are very unlady like and unbecoming especially since you seem to act as if you have made a change in your life.

Kim, You have to run you home. Period. I think you looked at your family,friends and made the right choice. You love Sweetie, it is obvious. That was not the issue. You need an assistant. The good news, you still have your friend. Keep your chin up. Don't worry about the negative. They have NO clue of all the aspects you went through to make your decision. You are what I keep watching the show for.

Kim I have enjoyed watching RHOA from the start and right or wrong (bc sometimes you're wrong) you have always been my favorite. I love it that you now have Kroy in your family and that the family is growing, Congrats on that!!! Now I see you trying to grow with the family and the new relationship with your man. Props to you for that Kim, we all have to put away childish things in order to grow and mature and unfortunately Assistant Sweetie had to go. As your assistant she was your enabler for childish behavior. To hear you calling "SWEEEETIIIIIIIEEEE" so many times for the smallest things, like a child calling her mother, was just not becoming of the mature and responsible woman you are trying to grow into. I know you love Sweetie like a sister and that part can and should stay the same 4ever (providing she doesn't write a tell all book). You can hire a new assistant and start things off on a more mature and professional foot this time. Develop a a bond with her too, by all means but don't rely on her/him to do the things that you should do yourself. Remember you have two daughters watching you. They will grow to emulate you in their adult lives. You are a strong and beautiful woman, wife, mother and nurse, so show your beautiful daughters how to put away childish things and grow up.

I love you and your family Kim and I wish you all the best. One last thing to say is that you are too smart to recognize who your real friends are not. Sheree is a jealous backstabber. She has only been a friend to you since Kroy has come along and moved you up financially in the world. She isn't happy for you she is jealous of what you have. Be polite with them, but don't let Sheree, Nene or Cynthia into your inner circle. They are your haters. Cynthia wouldn't be bad but for the company she keeps (including that toxic husband of hers). Kandi and Pheadra are truly happy for you and Sheree can cost you their friendship if she is allowed to get inside your head. She did that with the comments made in Africa. Really Kim, I don't see you getting along with them on that African trip either. You portray yourself as such a diva, I know that is where Kandi was coming from when she said what she said. Sheree not only let the comments go by without defending you, but she ran to the phone to call you, not bc she had your back, but to stir the pot and divide you and Kandi. She is such a liar!!! Nothing was said about black babies at all. There was nothing racially tinged in Cynthia or Kandi's remarks. Sheree is the one of the women on this show that is a racist. Of all the women I like her the least. She is sooooo not trustworthy in any relationship with anybody. She even messed it up for her own daughter when she was about to get a proposal. I'm sure that guy got a good look at Sheree and thought better about marrying the daughter of this woman.

All my love to you and your family, and that includes Sweetie. Stay sweet, beautiful and true to yourself, and continue to grow as I see you doing now. Always moving forward my dear lady. Peace out!

Has anyone heard what "Sweetie" has to say? If not, how can form an opinion without knowing the other side? If Sweetie has not hard feelings and understands the decision, then we really have nothing to say right?

Just want to say I am happy for you and your new family, but I am also happy you are getting your own show because I just can't watch your behavior any longer. You can be so rude and in a way come off as a snooty lady. I for one will be glad your gone next season.

Kim, I couldnt stand you before but I must say, this season you have really changed my feelings about you. I am so happy to see you truly happy with such a terrific man. All the other ladies are sooooooo jealous and its written ALL OVER their face on the episodes. Nene disgusts me and I really hope you NEVER forgive her for putting her hands on you last season! Keep up the good work and dont let any of your HATERS get you down. Your doing everything they wish they could do! You and Phaedra are the only 2 happily married women on the show so you know the rest are jealous. Except Kandi, love her too

Kim, bless you for hanging in there with all these, um, strong, women. I am so happy for you that you found true love with Croy. He seems really sweet, and he treats you nice, which is the most important. I want to tell you that you need to STOP TALKING ABOUT "BIG POPPA" around Croy. You compare the two of them right in front of him. Don't do that anymore. You did it on his birthday, and that was wrong, you should watch the show and look at his face, you can tell he hates when you do that. STOP TALKING ABOUT BIG POPPA and move on, or else it will hurt your relationship. I wish you the best and keep on keepin' on. Good Luck!

Kim has kept to herself and for the most part, out of the fray (unless she was maligned ala Cynthia & Kandy in Africa) for the entire season. She is happy with her man and everyone is hating her for finding a real life. I for one am happy for her. NeNe is a self important, ego-maniacal, no body who is trying to work her 15 minutes sideways. Good on you girlfriend, but do no mistake yourself as famous. You're infamous. There is a Big difference. Kandy can buy and sell All these. Her money is the real thing and she keeps working to secure the future for her mom and daughter. That's a Boss.. Hands down. Cynthia Needs to keep her problems with Peter to herself because when you leak that stuff outside the marriage to your family, it creates all kinda drama. Because you may forgive and forget because you love them. Your family does not. Marlo be who you are dollface. Ain't no shame in selling it, but don't act like you're more than you are or will ever be in this life.

Kim,

Congratulations on finding true love! It is plain to see how much you and Kroy really love each other. I also have a special marriage that I have no doubt will last forever; we met and were married in the same year and have been together now more than ten years. It's so true what you said on the reunion show, when you and Kroy went out to dinner, "You really do just know," when it's the person you will be with forever and ever. It's not something that anyone can understand until they experience it themselves. Don't let anyone get you down, you have been given a beautiful gift from God that most people want to find and very few get the chance. Enjoy.

Can't stand reading the comments about “how Sweetie was treated.” Just like the rest of us, we put up with stuff from our bosses because they paid us to do so. When you don't want to put up with your boss, their demands, or the job requirements, time to go.

Nene has a D***K in her pants really you would know remember you guys were friends for a long time and you have been with marriade men and you have been with women so yea you would know. i was watching the re-runs the other day of season two and you said you are not ashamed of dating a mariade man. hmmmm what goes around come around that all i will say. i bet if someone had made that comment about you, you would spewing venom, you like to trash others but you dont like when anyone say anything about you if people talk about you you start acting like a "victim" if you can dish it out you should be able to take it. Oh one more thing that car you bought Kroy looks dam hot, but i am just wondering if the money is big poppa's money. well hell its your business.

Kim, I've been trying to comment on your blog forever. If this on doesn't make the cut, it won't matter. But you are the one who was in a relationship with another female, sooooooooo I think you may have a d--k in your pants. If not a real one then maybe one of Khandi"s. That is if she doesn't have them all stuck up in her.

bee gee

I agree that the comment made about Nene having a d**k in her pants was uncalled for. Like calling Cynthia a booty licker. I think Kim is shooting venom because she knows Nene is right about how she treated Sweetie. I don't think you are a nice person and understand why Kandi, Sheree and Phaedra kiss your behind. I see women like them at work all the time. Women like Kim can tap dance all over them and they will follow behind like puppies; but will have no problem barking at Black women like themselves. Kandi doesn't want to upset Kim but blow up at Marlo and Nene. SMDH!!!

Kim girl you using what your momma gave you!!!!! I like you but you better watch out, Sheree has not had your back for 10yrs. Hell you and NeNe were closer than that. Kroy is cute from the waist behind, what's in front??? Well I guess it's good enough, 1 son and maybe another on the way???? Work it girl !!!!!

Bravo please post

I must be watching a totally different show from some of these posters. I see some people commenting on Nene talking about Kim all the time, Nene being jealous of Kim, etc.

This is what I see. 1. For someone who claims they have moved on from these ladies, Kim sure brings up Nene's name every chance she gets even when Nene is no where around. She also has the nastiest insults about her! Last night insult about the D**k in Nene's pants was downright unforgiveable. Yep, she sure has moved on.

2. What has Kim really done to earn her success, everything was either via Big Poppa and now Kroy! Think really hard about her success!

3. I want to know how long has she been a LPN because Kim is so lazy! Does she do anything for herself? She can't even cook her man a meal to welcome him home!

Nene has her moments but Kim takes the cake. If you moved on, really move on and stop the insults!
