Kim Says Goodbye to RHOA

Find out what Kim has to say about her dramatic deprature from the show.

The fighting. The stress. The gossip. The drama. I reached my boiling point.



Going to Anguilla would have been the trip of a lifetime, but under DOCTOR’S ORDERS I was unable to travel. Traveling 32 weeks pregnant is such a scary risk and for the women to think that I was willing to take that risk FOR THEM is absurd, especially since I don't consider them my friends. Traveling to Anguilla isn't an easy-breezy trip. I'd have to get on the plane to St. Marten, THEN take a boat to Anguilla. It just wasn't going to happen. PERIOD. My health is more important than arguing and bickering with people. These women can’t get along in Atlanta, and you expect me to believe they are going to another country and it’s going to be Hakuna-Matata? You know there are going to be fights on that trip. I made no mistakes by staying home.

When the ladies said I gave them dates that I was able to travel, I had no clue where they got those dates from. It honestly looked like a set up. It was a no-brainer that an 8 month pregnant woman can NOT leave the country. When I said my family and I were going to Lake Oconee for a family trip, Kandi asked why I can go on a trip with my family and not with them.  Let me tell you, Lake Oconee is one hour away from my home and in the state of Georgia!  And then NeNe saying I stuffed a pillow in my dress…are you serious?! Mocking me about my blood pressure, my wig, etc, I didn't find funny either. I had baby Kash August 15th, which was 5 weeks after that brunch! Phaedra stating, "I don’t have time for my friends?" Well, I don't and these women are NOT my friends. The only person I considered my true friend was Kandi throughout the years. What I find so hilarious is NeNe calling me a liar! NeNe, tell me one thing I have EVER lied about? I would love to hear that! NeNe is very strategic in all she does and has never done something without a motive in all the years that I have known her.

NeNe also says I always leave early. Honestly, these women are on their own time! Prime example: NeNe's event that I took the high road and attended started at 6pm and was set to end at 8pm. I showed up at 6:30 and waited until 8:30 when I HAD to leave. I have a nanny at home and when I say I will be home at 9pm, I WILL be home at 9pm. I cannot continue to expect my nanny to stay hours and hours beyond what I asked. My priority was my 1-year-old at home. Like I said at the brunch, having a 1-year-old at home is far different then having a 10, 12, or 14-year-old at home.

I was sitting there listening to them attack me, and I feel like I had an “aha moment” -- I have an amazing life with a great husband and awesome kids, why am I sitting here being attacked when I could be home being loved by my family. So I got up and left. When I got to the car and my husband saw me so upset, he knew at that moment I had enough! It was no longer worth it to me and my unborn son to be in a constant state of turmoil.

Bravo and RHOA have been beyond good to me, and I will be forever grateful for some of the moments that occurred on the show, but I couldn't deal anymore. I handled my sh-- for five seasons, from fights, to arguments  to the tears, but being pregnant puts a whole new spin on everything, and what happens on the outside affects what happens with the baby on the inside, and that was my priority!I called it quits for this season, and I don't regret it at all. So no, I clearly wasn't fired, you can hear me say "I'm done." But I won't be gone too long, my OWN spinoff premieres in the spring. Who the hell gets fired and then receives a promotion? Nobody! But hell, if I got fired from RHOA and got my own spinoff, can you imagine if I got fired from my spinoff... I might end up in Andy Cohen's seat.

SEE YOU SOON!

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!
