Okay, apparently I am taking requests today. Someone asked me to blog about Kandi and Kim’s blogs from the first episode so that she could talk about them with you and get your opinions. Sounds like a good idea to me! Click through for the relevant parts of Kandi and Kim’s blog and tell me what you think.
Here is what Kandi had to say:
When Kim came by the house with Sweetie, I was offended by some of the things she and Sweetie said. Kim said Sweetie told her she needed to lock her doors when she got off of my exit, because I lived in the hood. I was very irritated by that, because I was thinking, “Where the f— do you live, Sweetie?” There were even more things said that rubbed me the wrong way as well, like, “I didn’t even know they had houses like this over here. They must’ve just recently fixed it up.” Or “Wow, this is nice. I wasn’t expecting this AT ALL.” Or when I showed them the in-ground jacuzzi room, one of them said, “Oh you meant a real jacuzzi! When you mentioned you had a jacuzzi room, I didn’t know you meant a real Jacuzzi, I thought you were talking about a jacuzzi tub.” I was like what the hell would I mention a jacuzzi tub for? Oh I can’t forget this one! At one point I found myself defending my side of town and said, “There are a lot of wealthy people that live in this area,” and Sweetie said, “Like drug dealers.” I wasn’t feeling it at all. Sweetie explained that she grew up on the north side of town, and she said that she heard my side of town was dangerous. In my opinion, the stuff that Sweetie says to Kim adds to the whole racist theory people have about Kim. If Kim has a black friendthat feeds her bullsh– that certain areas of town are “hood” or “ghetto,” then that’s what she’s going to run with.
I hadn’t seen Kim in a while when she came over that day. The first couple of negative things they said kind of flew over my head, but after a while I caught on and I was feeling a little bothered by it. Have you ever had one of those moments where something happened that wasn’t cool and after the fact you thought you should’ve told that bitch this or that? Well that was one of those moments for me. I was trying to be cool, like maybe they didn’t know any better. I was thinking I shouldn’t trip, because clearly they have never been in this area before, but after a while it was like OK that’s enough of the ghetto neighborhood comments. After all the talk about my house, Kim talked to me about being evicted from her house and that she was just going to stay there and make them kick her out. Hmm… That sounded like some real ghetto section 8 type sh– to me, but hey, they live on the “non-ghetto” side of town, so no way could they have that type of stuff going on… LOL! Whatever.
And here is Kim’s version:
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.
So, what are your thoughts on GhettoGate2012 ?
