I was late to taping today because I went to vote this morning. I’m wearing my Georgia voter sticker proudly instagr.am/p/RiwLnJBJKl/
? Kandi Burruss (@Kandi) Nov 2012
And yes… I’m totally using that as a reminder for those of you who haven’t yet exercised your rights to vote for TODAY, November 6, 2012 is election day and your final chance to do so.
Now that I’ve gotten that PSA outta the way, how bout Kandi’s new home segment during the RHOA season premiere has been the talk of the town!
On the show, Kim spoke poorly about the area where Kandi’s new home is located, locking her car doors when she got off at the exit and claimed Kandi’s indoor pool was fitting since Burruss is “Black” and doesn’t sun-tan.
[Sidebar: I recapped RHOA on Atlanta’s 104.1FM yesterday and totally WENT IN on Kim’s poor choice of words. (LISTEN) ]
It’s not the first time Kim has made offensive comments with racial undertones. She made similar comments before firing her assistant Sweetie Hughes, when Hughes & Brielle were chilling at the pool.
Kandi admits that she was quite offended by the comments and recently revealed her thoughts about the situation.
Kandi hit her BravoTV blog, where she writes how she tried to let the comments slide, but in hindsight admits that she should have called both Kim AND Sweetie out about it:
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.” Why else would I mention a jacuzzi tub?
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 friend that feeds her bullsh– that certain areas of town are “hood” or “ghetto,” then that’s what she’s going to run with.
I have to interject and add that I don’t agree with that last statement. Kandi girl… you’re still giving Kim a pass by blaming it all on Sweetie. No ma’am! Don’t do it!
In my opinion, that’s exactly why Kim enlisted Sweetie to come back in the first place…. so that she can blame her lack of cooth on the Black chick.? But I digress…

Kandi continues as she describes how Kim spoke of being a non-paying squatter, as if that’s some high-class ish!
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.
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.
Can you smell the SHADE?!? 😯
Oh and for the record, Kim was never planning to purchase that home. It was all coordinated by Bravo for her wedding special.
Last but not least… Kim Zolciak popped out Biermann baby #2 over the Summer and she named the lil munchkin Kash.
Oddly enough… during the season premiere, Kandi spoke of wanting a son one day with her new boo Todd and even revealed that “Kash” was the name she’d already picked out if she were to have another son.
Kim was still pregnant during that time and it seems that she may have STOLEN her only remaining “housewife” friend’s baby name!!! And as if our speculation wasn’t enough, Kandi confirms it, stating she was shocked by Kim’s “coincidental” choosing of the same name.
Oh! Let me address the Kash name thing.
I’ve had a list of names in my phone for a few years for if I ever had another child. Kash was one of the names. When Todd and I got together, I showed it to him and we said that if we had a baby, Kash would be the name we would use. When we moved into this house we even had a room that we told everyone would be Kash’s room. Todd would even make jokes about tattooing Kash on him. It was the on-going joke and conversation amongst my friends.
Well, you can imagine how shocked I was when I found out Kim named her son Kash. Oh well!
Well dayum! Looks like Kim burned the only bridge she had left….
F*ck you too Zolciak!
What do you think about Kandi’s response?
Was Kim out of line or was it all Sweetie’s fault?
