Speaking to VH1, Kesha discusses her experience with doing the show (filming on the current season actually just wrapped 2 weeks ago after 20 weeks of filming), what it was like to take Royce Reed and Suzie Ketcham to her North Carolina hometown, and what her relationship is really like with her costars!
Excerpts from Kesha’s interview are below -
Tami has made it clear that she wants people to come to her with problems relating to her, but it’s natural for people to just talk to one another, I think, about their relationships with others. So how do you deal with it, knowing she has this strong feeling of how she wants people to treat her?
I do and say as I normally do. This is a reality show. In my life, I’ve never had someone say “This is how you treat me.” She said in the last episode “I don’t know Kesha from a can of paint,” well, I didn’t know her from a can of paint, so I won’t automatically walk up and have respect, you earn that. You build a relationship with someone, and before the foundation was even there, she just, like, ruined it and just like in real life, I stay away from people like that, I have no desire for that negativity in my life. I’m done.
In this past episode, you bring Royce and Suzie to your family home, what was that like?
If you know me, then you know my family. If you’re in my life, then you’ve met my family. I’m really, really close with my Grandma, my Grandpa, my mom, and all my cousins. I’m an only child and an only grandchild, but my family is huge, my Grandpa has twelve brothers and sisters, my Grandma had eight brothers and sisters, and they have kids who have kids and for Suzie and Royce and everyone watching, I think once you see this episode you’ll realize why I am the way I am, I don’t have any ulterior motives, I’m just Kesha and that’s all I can be.
What’s been your favorite part of filming?
It’s definitely been an interesting opportunity to see how reality TV works. I really loved being in Miami, I have never spend a lot of time there. I wasn’t expecting to be BFFs with anyone, but Royce, I just love her and I’m so happy we have our friendship, she’ll be in my life for a long time.
What’s your relationship now with the rest of the women?
Evelyn has said a few times in her interviews that I came into this thinking it would be one thing and really it’s not. I thought the girls really hung out with each other in real life and they were down and the cameras just came to just follow what they were doing, but it’s not like that. Things are set up. I probably wouldn’t have gone to have drinks with Jen or gotten to know Evelyn, but I would say I have a cool relationship with Evelyn, but I don’t really speak much to the other women.
What do you anticipate happening at the reunion?
Um, I’ll probably show up with some bodyguards. [Laughs] No, I don’t know, I’m not looking forward to it.
Moving on to tonight’s new episode, as all hell breaks loose between Kenya and some of the veteran cast members after Evelyn confronts Kenya about a demeaning remark. Kenya supposedly calls her loose! But first, the drama continues for former BFFs Jen and Evelyn, Evelyn
refuses to grow up decides she wants to fight Jen!
