Summer is coming to a close, which means the kiddies are heading back to school. K. Michelle recently opened up to VH1 about making the decision to send her son back to Memphis to live with her parents for the school year and what caused her to make this decision.
“Oh, I get sad because [my son] Chase—you know in the summer my son is with me, but through the school year with all of this going on I decided not to get him a nanny,” she explained. “I decided that it’s best for my mom and my father to help me because I want him to go to school and come home to a cooked meal, do his homework, go to church on Sundays. And in the summer, we’re able to do everything together. But in the school year, I have to travel back and forth to Memphis and that’s really a lot to you know, have to see your child through Skype but you know you’re doing it for the betterment of him.”
Up until this point, we haven’t seen much of the former “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star’s son, but apparently, that will all change when her new reality show, “K. Michelle: My Life” debuts on VH1 in November.
“You’re going to see K. Michelle as a mother,” she went on. “You’re going to see me recording this brand new album I have coming out this year. And you’ll just get to see me with my friends and my everyday life. And how I’m juggling everything and how you know, just because things are happening for me, there’s still a growth within me that I have to do in order to maintain it.”
Speaking of her spin-off, she promised that there will be enough drama to keep viewers entertained.
“There is some drama because of having friends— when my life changed, my friends changed. The way some of them acted changed. So of course, there’s going to be some drama because nobody’s life is smooth sailing and perfect. But never at a point will we get to the level of Love & Hip Hop because it’s time that people know that there’s other sides to me. I’m funny, I don’t take sh*t from anybody, I speak my mind, I’m a mother, I’m an artist. So it’s time for them to see that other things are brought to the forefront more. We already know that I will offer you a verbal lashing that will send you back to your mama. We know that.”
