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!

Claudia: I Could Relate to Cynthia's Insecurities

Claudia Jordan shares her thoughts on Cynthia's runway walk and the ladies' sit down.

Bravotv.com: What were your thoughts about the ladies’ big sit down to hash out their issues?
Claudia Jordan: I was really looking forward to a real resolve, and it seemed like that might happen when we saw (what I thought was) real emotion from both of the ladies. But sadly, once we heard the comments in the confessionals, we saw that only one of the ladies was truly being honest. I for sure thought when I saw NeNe leak some salty liquid from her tear ducts that she was in fact meaning what she was saying, but to so easily flip the script and throw that shade in her interview, well it was disappointing to say the least. One thing I love about Cynthia is that no matter what, she is always down to at least give someone a second chance. Some people may choose to call that weak, but I don't. I think it's easier to write someone off than it is to be open to them again once they have hurt you. Personally to me that takes real strength. I tend to hold a grudge once someone shows me their true colors, and I am great at closing the door and never looking back. So to me it was impressive that Cynthia was even open to once again trying to patch things up with NeNe. At the end of the day both ladies made a choice -- Cynthia made a choice to at least try one more time, and NeNe chose to act like she wanted to be friends again only to turn around and take it all back in her confessional. I wish I could say I am surprised, but sadly I'm not. I thought that was quite mean. Why not say that you were not interested in being friends when Cynthia was in your face? Why bother with the theatrics of crying only to later on basically say you didn't really mean it? Shady, shady, shady! If you're really about that life, say it to her face NeNe! Don't turn up in the confessionals and boo hoo in person! Where they do that at?


Bravotv.com: As a model yourself, did you sympathize with Cynthia’s insecurities about walking in a NY Fashion Week show? How was Cynthia’s walk?
CJ: I absolutely could relate to Cynthia's insecurities walking the runway with teenagers and 20-something year olds! I haven't walked a catwalk in so long, but when I did, there was such a rush that comes from when you KNOW you just did your thing and the crowd shows you love. That instant gratification is everything!

 

But I must say Cynthia did a great job, and if she was insecure, it certainly didn't show while she was on that catwalk! I thought she looked beautiful, and I was happy for her.

Bravotv.com: What inspired you and Kenya to take a cooking class?
CJ: Well I love to cook, but I don't make a TON of different things, so I'm always down to learn to make more. Although my reaction to the dessert wasn't as strong as Kenya's -- and her moans -- I thoroughly enjoyed it! It was sooo good! It was a fun experience, and Kenya never ceases to amaze me with her wild and crazy self!
