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

 

Claudia: Some People Have a Vendetta

Claudia Jordan shares her thoughts on the group therapy session.

Bravotv.com: Did you feel like progress was made at the therapy session?
Claudia Jordan: I do and I don't. The main people that needed it were not willing participants. One took off because she couldn't deal with hearing about how her actions affected the rest of the ladies. And the other that stayed, well… she received apology after apology without ever acknowledging any of her own wrong doing. That's not right at all. How is it that the woman on the receiving end of a physical attack has apologized to her assailant on several occasions, yet she has yet to show any remorse? That's downright insane to me! At the end of the day, there are lots of situations in this group where one can claim they were "provoked," and if the response/excuse every single time was physical violence, we'd all be in jail! And the sad thing is in this particular environment I felt that everyone else there was really ready to do the work and participate. So if ever there was a time to drop the ego and do the right thing and apologize simply for the purpose of starting the healing process for the group, then that was the time. Some people are just too stubborn and refuse to humble themselves. That happens when you are babied your entire life -- you feel like you can do no wrong. The rest of the ladies (including myself) however have all apologized and taken responsibility for contributing to the discord. But just pay attention to who never apologizes and who always does. I do not think that is because one "group" has been causing all the negativity in the group. But I do think that is because some have an agenda and a vendetta, while the other group is actually trying to make things cool and move on.


But on the flip side I will say that therapy was beneficial. In that one session we did get some good guidance from Dr. Jeff, who I would like to apologize to on behalf of the group for how he was mistreated. He came to help us and was insulted, disrespected, and his professionalism was questioned, which he did not deserve. So Dr. Jeff, I am sorry for how you were mistreated. The session did just highlight that some of us are mature and able to speak respectfully to one another, even if we have an issue with them, and some just cannot stand the sight and sound of someone we have decided not to like just because. All in all we did the best we could, and everyone who stayed did seem to really want to get along. And things were definitely better at work after the session. We were cordial and friendly.

Bravotv.com: Why did you decide to meet with Dr. Jeff one-on-one?
CJ: I have never, ever once claimed to be perfect or without flaws. And when I say I want to really resolve things, I am not just offering lip service -- I really mean it. If there is something that I am doing wrong that is contributing to any of the strife amongst the group, then I'd like to address it and do my part to work on me. I think most of us have issues with others because of past hurts that we perhaps never really dealt with and that cause us to act out in certain ways that may bother others. I am not saying I do this necessarily, but I have no problems talking to someone to at least try to be a better person. I for sure have made my share of mistakes and have experienced a lot of pain and disappointment in my life, but I've also been extremely blessed. But at the end of the day, my intention is always to grow and learn from it all and to be a better woman today than I was yesterday. Dr. Jeff is great at what he does and was for sure an asset to the group. Thank you, Doctor!

Bravotv.com: Did you and Porsha manage to get back to a better place?
CJ: It seemed that way. But I had made the decision that regardless of whether or not she was going to continue the peace treaty, that I was going to do my part to keep it cool, polite, and cordial. And so far so good.

Again I'd like to thank the fans for all their support and love and enthusiasm for #RHOA! I was in Miami Beach and Miami Gardens with the morning show this past weekend for Jazz in the Gardens, and the love I got from all the fans of the show was next level! I was truly flattered and humbled, and I will never let any of this get to my head and change me. I'm grateful to be a part of this and for all the amazing opportunities that keep sprouting from this. I just wrapped a movie called The Hills that I have a lead role in, which will be out in the fall, as well as another film called Love is Not Enough. I'm also working on a product line (to be announced soon) and more calls have been coming in from Hollywood for more great acting roles. I also had a great time with my girls in Miami and ran into a bunch of awesome people doing their thing that love the show too! I feel so rested and at peace. I'm healthy, happy, and appreciative. #ThankYouGod
