Kash and Kandi

Kim answers some of your questions from the premiere.

Now let's talk about tonight's premiere.
 
Not long after Kroy and I got married, we found out I was pregnant with a baby boy! We knew we wanted another baby without a doubt, we just wanted to be married first, so the timing was absolutely perfect. Since then, I've given birth to a healthy baby boy, Kash Kade Biermann.

I know exactly what you're thinking, "Didn't Kandi mention that she was going to name her baby Cash?" Well, THAT WAS NEWS TO ME.
 
Kandi and I have never discussed baby names, and I definitely didn't know she intended to use that name. It was almost a year ago that I was in a nail salon reading an article about Jessica Alba and her husband Cash Warren. I fell in love with his name and said to Kroy that’s what I would like to name our next baby if it happened to be a boy. I found out I was pregnant in December, was told the gender in March, and immediately decided his name was going to be Kash with a "K". I would never steal a friend’s idea for a baby name, ever! Besides, my reasoning for naming my son Kash had absolutely nothing to do with money, that's just outright tacky. You can even go back to March when we announced that we were pregnant in Life & Style magazine and stated, "I already have his named picked out and it starts with a K."
 
Last year Kroy and I decided to rent our home before we knew if Kroy was going to extend his contract with the Falcons. His contract was extended for 3 years, so we chose to purchase the home. After an appraisal of 1 million dollars LESS than asking price, we asked Antonio and Kendra (the previous owner and decorator) for a negotiation. They declined and told us we had to move immediately. Contrary to what may be in the tabloids and what is written in the blogs, I DID NOT LOSE MY HOUSE FOR REASONS HAVING TO DO WITH INABILITY TO PAY RENT. Period! My family has moved out since we still owned my townhome and Kroy's beautiful home while we were renting, so we decided the townhome was our best bet to move back to so our girls could go back to school in the town they had grown up in for 6 years. NOW we are in the process of building our REAL dream home and we're happier than ever. SO if you count, we own 3 homes. When Sweetie and I took the hour drive over to Kandi's new home, I wasn't in the best mood. It was over 95 degrees outside, I was 7 months pregnant, and Kandi's home had no A.C. running. Sweetie told me it wasn't safe at all (however I still went to support Kandi), and in fact there are several movies and songs that describe and portray the harshness of that area.

Kandi has always mentioned to me that she loves the way I've decorated my homes, so I had no problem giving her tips about decorating. My comment about her having an indoor swimming pool because she's black was just a silly joke. Kandi, Sweetie, and I laughed. Quite frankly, I wish I had one myself.

As for NeNe, she still can’t keep my name out of her mouth! NeNe constantly insinuated "I come from a trailer park" AND I am the racist one? I don't have to prove anything to anyone. I know my character, and the multiple friends of different races that I do have know it as well! Like I have said before and will say here again for the last time, COLOR means absolutely nothing to me, it is the person’s character and blatant ignorance that determines the non-friendship between me and the person. That is all for now.
 
This season is going to be insane, so make sure you guys stay tuned.



Ask. Believe. Receive.
xoxoxo,
Kim Biermann

 

Phaedra: You Don't Often Come Across Hair Burglary

Phaedra Parks weighs in on Derek J's unusual case and how she won "most eccentric" in high school.

Bravotv.com: Were you glad you let NeNe and Cynthia have their discussion alone? Were you optimistic they would be able to work it out?

Phaedra Parks: NeNe and Cynthia were very close friends, and their problems had nothing to do with the rest of us. Out of respect for their relationship and privacy, I felt it was best to let them have time alone. I’m glad we did because, as history has proven, when the rest of us start interjecting and expressing opinions, things escalate very fast and usually not in a good direction. The last thing NeNe and Cynthia needed was all of us inserting ourselves into their situation.

Bravotv.com: Were you surprised when Derek J came in with his burglar case? Was it the strangest case you’ve ever worked on, and, if not, what case was the strangest?

PP: I wasn’t surprised at all, as we live in a very litigious society. The number of frivolous lawsuits has increased significantly in recent years and gets more interesting as the years go by. Derek J has worked very hard to become very well known in his field. Unfortunately, this makes him a target for people who are looking for money, fame, and/or attention. Too often, people access money, fame, and/or attention by making sensational claims/accusations at the expense of those who have worked hard to achieve success and notoriety. I have to say this is probably one of the more unusual cases I have been involved with; you don’t often have people being accused of hair burglary. It’s not every day that you have to counsel someone who has been accused of high jacking some used hair extensions.

Bravotv.com: Why did you win “most eccentric” in high school?

PP: I have always prided myself in taking the road less travelled and not being afraid of being different. My high school classmates voted me “Most Likely to Launch an Internet Business,” “Most Likely to be a Millionaire in 10 Years,” and “Biggest Flirt,” but when it comes to "most eccentric," I know I'd rather be a little weird than all boring -- that's just me!
