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!
blah blah blah SWEETIE shouldve left your behind. the minute you met kroy and had the baby your priorities changed and started finding fault when she has been the same since she's been on the show. YOU are the one who changed once you got a husband. if you were a real friend/boss you wouldnt listen to what kroy thinks about sweetie but you gotta keep that money coming in some kinda way. traitor. you dumped sweetie like you dumped kandi after you were done with her and next best thing came along.
errrr..... kim.. her family is allowed to have such pinions about their sister and daughter but , i dont think casual friends should fling such comments about the place and especially on TV! e.g Kroy can complain about your parenting skills to you, but it will be unfair for Cynthia to do such on tv! Also Kim stop repeating the African baby thing! no one thinks or implied you were a racist but you are trying to make people think that now!! have you ever heard the saying " the lady doth protest too much"?...... I am african and every time you repeat it- this casual nonsensical comments is starting to annoy everyone! with you starting to look like the aggressor!!!
I'm glad Sweetie is not your personal assistant anymore. Now, you can hire someone who will actually WORK and reduce the stress level in your life. Sweetie can be part of your entourage and hopefully people will stop complaining about her not working this season.
As far as you not going to the party, that was your choice. You have a three kids. Who cares? I miss a lot of social gatherings because I have two small children and my husband serving our country in the Middle East. I would like to see you confront Cynthia about talking about you behind your back. She needs to keep your name out of her mouth. From all appearances, she doesn't know you and MIGHT be simply reacting to negative comments from NeNe.
I'm sorry Kim, but weren't you the one to throw the first blow at Cynthia when you stated you believed her marriage wouldn't last a year? Weren't you the first one to insult yourself and her on TV when you brought your own wine to her wedding? If she had ill feelings toward you, I don't think you would have been invited to her wedding. I like you but it appears you failed to see that you attacked first and you can't use your attacks to blame them for whatever they say or do to attack you back.
You have always been my favorite, I think you have class, dignity and aren't afraid of anyone. It seems if there is ever a negative situation someone always does their best to include your name,,,so tacky. I agree with you on the Cynthia and Peter party, again, someone just wanting to start drama. Belated congrats on the marriage and new member of your family, just wait as soon as KJ can walk and talk, your girls will never know what hit them! Even though I am sure you know this ,,,but don't worry about those who try to give you a hard time or involve your name in petty bs,,,,those are typically the ones that are insecure in themslves, and like to put focus on another person so that their own pettiness is over looked. When I saw the photos of your wedding dress I thought to myself.."I would have died to be able to wear something as beautiful" Can't wait for your show, I am sure it will be very entertainning...:) So you keep doing you, and honey rock those wigs, I haven't seen one that doesn't look good on you!
Love your humor, style and wit.And your girls won't know what hit them when their younger brother begins to walk and talk,,,he will keep them on their toes! When I saw the picture of your wedding dress, I thought it was not only amazingly beautiful, but perfect for you. I agree with you on the anniversary party,,who would want to go,,,and why? Looking foward to your new show, I am sure it will be great!
Kim, please move on from the Africa incident. You and Sheree were fighting the last 2 seasons and now you are BFF's. I am all for moving on and being happy, but watch who you call friends. Sheree has absolutely nothing positive going on in her life.
Kim, you used to be so much fun to watch but this season is so blah! Whenever you're on the screen, you're either whining, bragging or bossing everyone around. It's difficult to watch. I really miss the dynamic between you & NeNe! You guys had amazing chemistry. At least the OC is interesting this year....
Kim you need to grow up. Stop acting like you are perfect and everyone else has so many flaws. I think Sweetie changed becuase you no longer treated her as a friend or respected her. If Sweetie is lazy then what are you?? I hope this your last season because you Sheree cause arguuements.
Kim let go of the comment about holding the black babies. I think because you are high maintenance people don't see you as the Mother Teresa type. I think all the viewers feel the same way. You don't come off very hands on when it comes to most things, especially charity.
Kim it is interesting (hypocritical) that you are entitled to your own opinions about Cynthia and her marriage but Kandi and Cynthia can't give their opinion about you coming to South Africa. Get over it and get over yourself. Why Kandi would even want to be friends with you is beyond me!
Kim, Please get over the whole South African incident. You know that Kandi is a good friend and she is more honest and tells it like it is. She will not lie to you the way Sheree has. Sheree has changed alot and you know better than anyone the type of person she can be. Remember the whole "pulling your wig" incident? She is miserable and wants to take everybody down with her. She has no life right now so please be careful. You have really changed for the better. I'm glad you stopped smoking, you know as a nurse that smoking is so bad for you. Please don't go back to it. Your baby KJ is beautiful God bless him. One last thing, I had noticed that Sweetie was becoming a bit of a smart-ass with you. When I saw the way she responded to getting back to work after being outside at the pool, I could not believe how disrespectful she was to you. Well, I do wish you the best with your new show and your new life. Take care and stay sweet, just the way you are now.
Kim i like you ur cool,but beware of people who always coming and tellin u stuff ,u need to ask them what did they say in the conversation.sherea for example she comes back from africa causing trouble,kandi did not say it like the way sheree tool it to u.sheree is trouble she totes news causing confusion and causing touble.sherea is nobodies friend.there is a saying if they will gossip to u they will gossip about u.
Kim - just love you! Don't blame you for staying away from Cynthia's party. I'm glad you decided to skip it instead of being sucked into the drama.
Kim is my favorite,nene not so much sheree is awesome,kandi is real phadrea is a southern belle like myself,marlo is getto all mouth,a record don't make you a bad b.cynthia is a sneaky diva that is very messy the slick way.
I don't know if you even read these comments, but if you do I would like to start by saying 'Hello' and letting you know that I do love you on the show! However, I am wondering do you watch the playbacks of the show when they air, because if you do you would see what everyone else did when your very close friend Sheree blew this whole orphanage situation out of proportion! I strongly believe Cynthia nor Kandi implied that you were a racist. It was Sheree who manipulated and twisted their words so much in order to make it look that way! I'm just really upset and disappointed that the trip to the orphanage will always be tainted by this drama! I mean you are a grown women yet you're acting like school girls with all of this "he said, she said," it's infuriating! I just don't see why you won't just try and make sense of it yourself, you could've watched the show or something to see what happened. You and Kandi seemed so close, it boggles my brain to even think that you would think she would have called you a racist, but at the end of the day she told you how she felt. I think you should sit with Kandi herself and talk and figure things out and at the end of that you don't feel she's a good friend to you then you tell her then and there and sever ties. But you shouldn't base your decision on just one side of the story! Besides consider your source!
I think it was Kandi that said it best when she said a few episodes ago that you're constantly making excuses not to attend things. It was extremely thoughtful of Cynthia to invite you to her ANNIVERSARY when on your interview you said they wouldn't last a year. Worry about your own marriage and hope that someday Kroy with his sweet self doesn't wake up and wish he never laid eyes on Big Poppa's MISTRESS!
KIm. you gave Kandi hell for not standing up for you..She stated her opinion and stood by what she said. There was nothing racist in what she stated. Why not give hell to Sheree? She sat there and said nothing. She didnt stand up for you.. but was quick to come back and report to you., and she reported it wrong. Sheree is a shit starter!! She's no one's friend
sweetie was always lazy. You have a right to your opinion, but why say something negative ALLLL of the time. oh that's right, you ar better than "these girls"
Kim you really think you have it goin on since you have been with Kroy. Honey your were just blessed to find a man who was willing to accept your ready mades. Nothing new in this world. Remember Kandi was there for you regarding your singing when no one else was. Sheree is messy as hell and that is why she has no friends but your dumb self. Honey get off your high wigs and come down a bit. Realize true friends when you see them. Sheree is not one. If she really cared for you she would not have stirred that mess up in Africa. Everyone can clearly see your not racist (SWEETIE) duh. Stop acting like a dumb blonde. Kandi's comment was not that bad at all. Your mad at the wrong one.
kim you are my fav. but you have to understand that no one believes you are a racist. what i believe is that she by sheree loves to start drama and gossip. anything you say she's gonna run it back to whoever. i think she is jealous of her friends becoming close with new people. any woman with as much on her plate as she has wouldn't be this consumed with he said she said. i really hope you read these comments. neither candi nor cynthia said the black baby thing. she by sheree's gossip spider sense started tingling and she got the story mixed up a little. and again i as a black woman who watches the show since the beginning do not think that you are a racist.
Kim, you and Kandi need to just move forward from this "black baby" stuff. Cynthia said something and Kandi agreed, big deal, so did I. Kandi has your back, reguardless of what you think. Did you notice how Sheree is throwing everyone under the bus this season. She is so miserable in her own life, that she is knocking others down. She didnt even care about Lawrence's feelings
I do not blame you one bit for not attending the two faced person that is called Cynthia's party. Her and Peter the moocher throw this one year anniversary party and do not have the money for it?? Plus what the heck kind of party was that anyway. People standing around waiting for her to walk down a bunch of stairs, Too funny! LOL
Anyhow I'll be glad to see you away from her and Nene.
I hope you and Sweetie are still friends . . and she finds work soon, with the way our economy is.
Can't wait to see your new show.
is it me or you are not watching the entire show. you choose sheree of all people to listen too! didn't she pull your wig 2nd season.
Kim, It's apparent that you do not watch your own show, because if you did, you would know that neither Kandi or Cynthia implied that you were racist. Please watch the episode, and find something else to blog about other than "black babies". Furthermore, during Kandi and Cynthia's conversation, your BFF, Sheree, was smiling, nodding and joining in on the fun. You must ask yourself, if Sheree is such a good friend, why didn't she stick up for me or shut the conversation down?
Don't be Sheree's pawn. She is trying and succeeding in pitting you against the others. Let's see, now you are mad at Nene, Cynthia, and Kandi. Watch out, because Sheree will work her magic and have you mad at Phaedra before long.
Nobody can see you on safari in Africa. No body can see you outdoors without a lounge chair and a cocktail. It has nothing to do with holding a "black baby". Sheree is no friend to anyone.
kim, i think you are the only one on the show who has presented herself in the way in which the franchise was meant to be. From big poppa signing off on the escalade to go along with the rr and porche in ur driveway, to the way you re-decorated ur daughter's room. I don't think you are falling into any stereotype or anything like that, in fact, I am a nurse myself, so I have a lot of respect for your hustle. basically, I just wanted to send you message to keep it moving. you fly above all of the negativity and best wishes to your family. P.S.S. your dad is supppppper funny! needs his own show! p.s.s..s. if big poppa has a cousin, brother, uncle, or something, let me know!!! lol JK! good luck to you and troy and the fam. your money is long, everybody else is trying to catch up, leave em in the smoke. you paid your dues!!!
Umm, do you not watch the show? There was never any mention of a "black baby" for the 100th time! The only person who said that was Sheree who invented this drama in her delusional mind just like she did with Nene in the beginning of this season. I know you need someone on your side and Sheree's broke ass needs you on hers but damn this is getting ridiculous... it's been proven that no one said anything bad. The only bad thing I saw was Sheree laughing WITH them, not defending you. Next season when she flip flops to the next friend you're going to get a lot of I told you so's.
And sorry but Peter and Cynthia have every right to dislike you. You bad mouthed Cynthia all last season for no reason and bashed her marriage. Tit for tat baby.
I think you were perfectly justified in letting Sweetie go. In the last few episodes, you seem to be constantly calling for her to come over and actually do her job. While, I don't have the lifestyle you do (I wish!!) to afford an assistant, if I did have that lifestyle and did have an assistant, I would also be upset if they were just chillin' in my pool when they were supposed to be working! People hate on you, but I just think they are jealous.
As far as the whole Cynthia, Kandi, Sharee, and Africa thing, I'm not sure what to think. I've watched enough of these shows and seen enough reunions to know that the editors don't always give the audience a glimpse into the whole story. What we see as opposed to what really happens can be two very different things. While the term black baby was never actually used on camera, how are we supposed to know it was never used at all? Maybe the editors took it out? We'll never know. It does seem like everyone is blowing this whole Africa thing out of proportion, but who knows?
I do think you have the right to not attend Cynthia's party. Just because you got an invite does not mean you have to feel obligated to attend! You and Cynthia never seemed as if you were all that close to begin with, so I can see why you wouldn't want to attend.
Let the haters, hate Kim! Just go on being your fabulous self!!
One thing you have to do with an employee is start them off the way you want them to conduct themselves at work, regardless if you're friends. You can't allow them to slack off, lay by the pool, hang out with you, etc. Whatever you start, that is the way they will be. So give your expectations at the beginning. Don't disrespect them by calling her the B word or any thing else otherthan their name. You do have to watch the way you talk to people.
Kim," you say Sweetie is a good friend to you." yet, you talk behind her back about her to anyone who will listan. you say how trust worthy and loyal she is to you, yet you are neither to her she should have left along time ago!
Racism is shameful. No one should casually throw around the accusation that someone is a racist. I hate that NeNe and Kandi seem to jump on that accusation so quickly with very little thought or regard for the truth because I like both women.
Oh we new As soon as you got with Kroy, sweety was going to be up out of there. She didn't fit it to yall picture perfect life.....
Kim, I love you and I wish I could meet you. You did the right thing about Sweetie. I am really happy for you and Kroy. May you last forever. I am thrilled about your baby, the move into a beautiful house and the fact that you got away from that bitch NeNe. She always talked about you behind your back. Now, about Kandi, don't lose a friendship over what Sheree said. Look at the tapes, Kandi didn't throw you under the bus. Synthia was the one that was dissing you. Anyway, do you really have your own wig line? How can someone go about getting one? Hugs Girlfriend, I wish you the best!
Kim, I have to agree with most folks here. Kandi did absolutely nothing wrong or distasteful/disrespectful. She's been a true friend. Thr majority of the comments regarding Sheree are true. She cannot maintain a redltuonship with anyone and what she repeated to you about the Africa orphanage remark was just soooo wrong! Sheree really is a toxic, unhappy woman. Am glad you and Sweetie can just be friends now. That pressure was too straining. Lastly, I think if you choose to not attend a function that's entirely up to you & your level of comfort. Knowing what to attend and remaining outside and on the periphery of these women is sometimes very wise! At least you realize your limitations!
Kim, I like your character on RHoAtl; you have been consistent all the way. I don't think you are racist, because you wouldn't be on RHoAtl if that was the case. I personally don't feel it is your style to be in Africa or anywhere that is not at least three stars. You were on Kandi's bus and complained about the bus. If you complained about that bus, how on earth would anybody think you would have gone to Africa? You can be married with children and still enjoy life. I truly miss your funny and sunny side. You had spunk and you really don't let what people really say affect you.
All the viewers must realize that everything has already taped for this season. The RH just has to give their take on the episode each week.
Keep your back to a wall when you are around Sheree, she doesn't have your back & when I see how she conducted herself during & after the Africa trip, makes me wonder if you even watched your own show. She is a sad, lonely person that needs to pit everyone against each other to make herself feel good. I still can't understand why she is still even on the show. She's a nobody & has nothing. Watch yourself & don't turn on people because Sheree runs her mouth & spews lies.
