What a Difference a Year Makes

Kim still can't believe how much her life has changed since last season.

It's been a long summer of filming, but we're back! I want to start off by saying I appreciate all of the love I've been getting since Season 3 ended! All of your tweets and Facebook posts really got me through this season! So with that being said, let’s jump right into Episode 1!
I can't stress any more than I already have about how life can change in just one year. I wouldn't have guessed in a million years that I would be so in love, pregnant, getting ready to move into my dream home, and now be officially engaged! Last year, you all witnessed Kroy and I meeting for the first time, and ever since then my life has been a dream. I couldn't have asked for a better soul mate. He's a wonderful father and most of all he makes me and the girls so happy.
As you all saw, I'm getting ready to move into a new home. Living in a three bedroom townhouse just wasn't going to work any longer since I'm about to give birth to my son. And besides, I was so ready to get my stuff out of storage. My belongings have been there for five years. I can't wait for you all to see more about our BIG move! (It could have been a show in itself.) Kandi is doing a sex toy line: SHOCKING! I mean we all know Kandi loves anything having to do with sex, so why not? I think it's a great idea and I support her all the way! And the idea of having a music-based vibrator is golden. Just imagine: "Don't be tardy (buzz) for the party (buzz)." Love it!
Now let's talk about this whole NeNe and Sheree ordeal. Sheree reached out to let her know that Diddy was hosting an event and wanted us to host as well. Sheree, being the kind-hearted person she is, invited NeNe also. As celebrities we all have fee's that we charge to do any kind of appearance, and Tyrone (the promoter) knew their fee and accepted. So it was a deal. NeNe, being the money hungry woman she is, went behind her back and called Tyrone saying that Sheree is boring and they should just pay her more! In the end, Sheree did the appearance, made her money, and everyone went on with their lives. At the end of the day, Sheree caught her in a lie and NeNe went crying and running to Cynthia. Seemed to me that it was all for show! NeNe is so money hungry and she's constantly trying to present a life that she really doesn’t live! If NeNe is such a "rich bitch" like she says she is, why would she have tried to take money from Sheree? She is on this episode bragging about how she is writing a check in cash for her son’s new car and that "ching ching ching, her haters should be mad."
Well when I wrote a cash check for my car on Episode 1 of Season 1, did you see me going around talking about how "rich" I am? No! In fact I was incredibly thankful I was able to do that. People who truly have money don't need to go around talking about it. God can take it from you as quick as he gave it to you, and people need to remember that!
Over the years I've learned being rich doesn't really have anything to do with money. That's being wealthy. Being rich in life is what she's aspiring to, and that requires having things money can't buy. Thing like happiness, health, family, etc. And if NeNe is rich, then I'd rather be broke.

Until next week,

Phaedra: I Was Disappointed with Cynthia

Phaedra Parks weighs in on Cynthia Bailey's "classless" behavior. Why did you decide to perform an exorcism at the house? Do you think it helped?

Phaedra Parks: I was raised in the church. Both of my parents are pastors along with eight of my uncles. I believe in spirits and energy. The energy in my home was noticeably different so I wanted my Apostle to bless and tarry in our home in an effort to bring a renewed and positive energy into the house. Regardless of whether or not you believe doing such a thing actually works, it is a way for all of us to reset ourselves, let go of the negativity, and move forward with our lives. I know prayer changes things and calms the atmosphere. Following Apostle Canada's visit we rested better and there was a spirit of peace and tranquility in our home. We have begun the next chapter of our lives and are focused on the future. You and NeNe have grown a lot closer. How did that come about?

PP: I consider NeNe a good friend. We have not always been on the same page, however we have found a common ground of being like-minded, successful entrepreneurs and mothers of sons. When I needed a friend the most, she was there and I will always remember that. It is easy to find friends when life is going well, but it is the ones who are willing to support you during the storms that matter. During the months when my life was spinning out of control, NeNe called me every single day to see how I was doing despite her busy schedule. She sent encouraging text messages when she could not reach me. I was grateful that I had her and Porsha in my corner because they helped me through some of my most difficult days. What was going through your head when Kenya brought up the rumor?

PP: Well, in actuality it was Cynthia who brought up the rumor. I was disappointed that Cynthia, a fellow wife and mother, would be so insensitive to repeat such an absurd notion less than 24 hours following my husband’s incarceration and the drama that occurred with it. At no point have Cynthia and Peter ever reached out to check on me or my children. I was amazed that she was more interested in spreading a lie than supporting me as a woman and newly single mother. I guess the purported class she touts must have been on winter break, because that was the most classless thing I have ever witnessed.

As far as Kenya is concerned, I never expect much from her, but as always her obsessive interest in my life, plus her extreme actions and emotional state, further corroborate the affair between her and Apollo.
