Snip, Snip, Snip

Kim explains why she wanted to have KJ circumcised.

I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving holiday! Kroy, the kids, and I really needed this break. I didn't cook, instead we went to one of our favorite restaurants, Killer Creek, in Alpharetta and Traci Bloom from Top Chef cooked us an amazing meal. Kroy had to work most of the day, so it worked out great not having to cook and clean up. I was able to enjoy the kids all day and then head out to eat. A perfect Thanksgiving it was! I am so thankful for the many things I have been blessed with. I hope you guys enjoyed your holiday as well.
 
I really appreciated Phaedra coming over to my house and apologizing to me for Apollo's behavior at my baby shower! I like Phaedra, and I respect her for coming over with an "I'm sorry" gift. I really felt her apology was genuine and sincere. As for Cynthia, I have not gotten a call from her or Peter. It just shows the different level of class each couple has. But Peter and Cynthia have never tried to act like they had any, so I don't know why I expected some. Silly Kim! Moving on! I felt it was very necessary to meet with a baby nurse to help me and Kroy, because this is his first child and my first boy! There was no hesitation when it came to getting my son circumcised. We did not want our son to have to go through life with his penis looking like a pig in a blanket. So snip, snip, snip! Although I was a nervous wreck when he was having the procedure done, I sent Kroy to watch and supervise! I'm sure KJ and his future wife will thank us later. You're welcome, son! NeNe says, "Kim has three kids by three men." Her comments mean less than nothing to me at this point. As long as NeNe is around, I'll never need a publicist because she keeps my name out there! She needs to discuss me to stay relevant. I'm happy, and I've learned when you’re truly happy, you don't have time to waste on people you don't like. My children are happy and healthy, and that's all that matters.
 
The last couple weeks of my pregnancy were very rough, so I couldn't attend Kandi's 35th birthday party. And after watching that stripper whip his penis like a helicopter, dip it into Kandi's drink, and give himself oral pleasure, I'm so glad I didn't go. 
My motto in life has always been "Everything happens for a reason." No matter what, good or bad, there is a reason for it all. I now know why my body wasn't allowing me to go that night. I believe there is a time and a place for everything, but with all the men, mothers, etc. there I don't believe it was appropriate.
 
Until next week,

Claudia: NeNe Turned Up, Not Me

Claudia Jordan shares her thoughts on the tense moment with NeNe Leakes.

Bravotv.com: What did you think of Cynthia's acting in Kenya's pilot?
Claudia Jordan: I thought Cynthia did a great job and was very funny and believable. It was an over-the-top character, and Cynthia committed and gave 100%. I thought she came off really cute! I told her that she should continue pursuing a career in acting.

Bravotv.com: Was the vibe still positive between everyone at Phaedra's event?
CJ: Yes, the vibe was still good between all of us that went on the trip. I was pleasantly surprised that we were all able to be around each other, be civil, and greet each other and not be rude or nasty. I didn't know what our duties would be when I agreed to attend the event -- all I knew was that we made progress on the trip to the Philippines and there was no reason for me not to go and support. So when we arrived and were told we were just going to be in the kitchen making plates, I put on my apron and got to work.

Bravotv.com: What was going through your mind after the confrontation with NeNe?
CJ: I didn't feel I was out of line at all! I was not loud and no one heard me in the audience at the event. I kept a calm, cool tone. I was standing next to NeNe in the kitchen making plates, and I certainly wasn't going to ignore the woman for the entire time while we're supposed to be working together. So I started making small talk. And it started off fine, I asked how her health was and told her that it was too bad she couldn't make the trip because of her blood clots. Then I said we hadn't seen her since the Dr. Jeff session that she put together, and she started insulting me and Cynthia, while never once making eye contact or acknowledging Cynthia, which was very rude. Then she started talking at us, not to us, and raising her voice to the point where she could be heard in the other room. She turned up at the event, not me. So when she threw out the false statement that we had said very rude things about her (or something like that), I wanted to know what she was talking about, because it just wasn't true, and one thing I hate is being lied about. If you are going to throw that out there, you better have examples. I found it funny and ironic that this woman was standing there lying about me without taking any responsibility for anything that she has said about everyone else. My thing is this -- we all have been shady, but do not act like you are such a victim of everyone else's shade when you keep on doing it over and over again -- then you wonder why folks don't accept your apologies…


I started off saying hello, being kind, smiling, making eye contact, and attempting to work together. I thought there was nothing wrong with my tone. When NeNe made comments about "taking it to the streets," I was surprised. What has really transpired between us to get to this point? All I did was expect an answer to a question, and now someone wants to fight? Girl, bye! We are both over 40 and we will not be jeopardizing anyone's delicate hip bones with a street fight!
Although it was a step backwards with NeNe, I'm still happy with how everyone else at this point was still being cordial and doing their part to keep as much of the group on good terms as possible. When NeNe exited we finished the event in good spirits. I explained to Phaedra and Porsha what had happened between me and NeNe, they didn't hold it against me, we went back to serving the men at the event nice warm meals, and we laughed and took pictures together. So no one was mad that day. Just saying...

I just wanted to add that one of the benefits of being part of #RHOA has been making new friendships and doing business with other successful women. This weekend I was honored to work with Kandi Burruss on her Women's Empowerment MasterClass. She asked me to moderate, and I was happy to do it. The panel discussions were amazing, and it was such a positive and powerful event. Kandi truly is an example of a woman that empowers, employs, and uplifts other women, and I appreciate her for it! Good job!
