Let's be honest, Kim is shown so much with her kids because she has no other relationship they can display on tv (other than the friend she talks to sometimes). They focus on Lisa, Nene, and Kandi with their significant others. Sheree and her divorce drama leaves her manless, but at least she is in that steamy love affair with herself that they can focus on. The fact that you see Nene mainly with her oldest (he's the one bringing her drama right now), Lisa with the baby (we tend to forget she has two other kids who are not allowed on camera), Kandi with her daughter (mainly when they were talking about AJ because they were focusing on the new family dynamic, and very little of Sheree and her kids (which indicates to me that they are typical kids bringing no excitement to the show, good for Sheree-bad for tv), but you tend to see Kim with her daughters more often. That's out of circumstance. It's not like we're getting a glimpse of big poppa on the screen.
I have no doubt they each love their kids with a passion, but Kim wants to be a friend to her girls. She just wants to be liked too much to be effective with them at times. I did worry about what she was feeding them and I'm glad she's hired a chef. So many health problems can happen from eating too often out of a box. Genetics plays a role, so hopefully her kids are not predisposed to certain illnesses. Regardless, even if they are not in an at risk category, such risky behavior will catch up to them as adults if their eating and exercise habits are not checked.
One thing I can say about Kim, and it's more of an observation about her personality than it is a compliment, is that she seems affected by some of the criticisms of the public more than the other housewives. When she got wind of the backlash of the kids diets she did seem humbled by it. Saw her on Bonnie Hunt, she was very willing to take in what was being said. Thing is, I think it goes back to Kim wanting to be liked. I even think that's what gets her in trouble for being fake (You're so beautiful, you're so sane, you're my best friend, etc). The one thing she will never be moved to change is anything regarding her golden goose big poppa. The woman, however, lacks self esteem. She tries to purchase it with gaudy trinkets and hide her insecurities beneath 10 pounds of wig hair. Some days I actually feel sorry for her.
