I've never felt like this...

I just want to say thank you to all of you who donated money to help me get an attorney...you have no idea that each penny is like the biggest, sparkly blessing to me...and feels like a million dollars! I am so blessed to have amazing souls like each one of you, that see the good in life and people, and have the most amazing hearts! I heart each of you!

I had a hard time even thinking last night..., before I went to bed, I read all your amazing, love-filled words you left me in my comments on here and on facebook. You have no idea what kind of heart healing power our words have.

I wanted to cry and scream last night....as one of my friends said they went somewhere, and people were talking about me. People that don't even know anything about me...they had all probably just gone to my blog and youtube to "research" me that day. The article that they published, which is just filled with lies and false accusations, and all the evil comments people left, that don't have any clue what is really going on. Somebody said, "yeah she lives in a nice house that the taxpayers pay for"....I can't even believe someone would make up such a lie. I was going to go to the store last night, and I didn't even end up going because I didn't want to see any of these people, that have now seen my picture that the printed! So awful...

I work so hard to take care of me and my kids...I'll be up all night editing videos, sending emails, working all day long....trying to work while I make snacks, play with my little people, clean the house! I am so angry that these people that have no clue about me are saying such ridiculous things...they are so inaccurate...and to think that this newspaper would print this, without it being fact is awful!!!

I got a Jury Duty Letter in the mail yesterday, and as I read it, sitting in my car, a pink piece of paper fell out...it said, "keep ya head up girl. You are more loved than you can imagine. You are blessed".....the more loved than you can imagine is what I always say..."you're more beautiful than you now, more talented than you think, and more loved than you can imagine!"...instantly tears began pouring down my face...and even as I type this, they are overfilling my eyes...
Whoever sent me that note in the Jury letter....thank you so much! It was like a tiny sign of love from out of no where...

If you missed the story, you can go back to the post about Why I was in court.....
thank you everyone for your awesome heart support...i love you all, and tears can't help but spill out of my eyes when I feel all your love.


thank you so much for everything...your words make my heart feel so much better...a teary eyed, kandee

Maritza said...

it will work out for you because you are a good person. And I know that good people don't always get what they deserve, but you are a GOOD person and have a LOT of people that know you, and trust you. You are so fortunate that even though we're all people of the internet, we communicate and support one another. Someone will guide you to an attorney that will fight for your situation.

Emily said...

Kandee,

God has caused you to be the head and the the tail! You are an awesome mother, a fabulous make-up artist and just a beautiful person! Don't you ever start to believe what all those negative, nasty and jealous people say, it is a lie from the devil!Isaiah 41:9-13 will get you through anything! I love you, we all love you...more than you can imagine!

lauriepaling said...

Please don't Cry Kandee :(
It will all work out in the end we all know you love and cherish your children. You are a wonderful Human Being and would never do anything to hurt anyone I look up to you so much and even as far as making a Group on Facebook! I love everything about you and God will be with you to keep you and your little ones safe from the mean people in court/papers.
Keep your chin up and you will get through this you have all of our support xoxoxoxoxoxox

It's awful that people's ignorance and quick to judge attitude is having this impact on your life. It is embarrassing for them to behave in this way. You are an optimistic and strong person and will come out the other end. It's common knowledge amongst those with half a brain that many reporters are lazy - this one in particular. I also think the officer that instigated this situation is also lazy - a way to show his peers/superiors that he is doing his job properly - but he isn't! Did they have the right to search your house?! I doubt it. BTW - my house is always a mess. A messy house belongs to a creative mind!

You are so generous, constantly sharing your wisdom in many ways: tips on how to improve our looks, how to cope when we feel low or life feels tough, improve our self-esteem and all of it for free! You don't ask for anything in return! Karma should soon be giving back to you the goodness you have shared with so many on here!

It's a shame you don't want to leave the house because they printed your picture - but at least you are the master of disguise with your make up - dress up as Snow White or even Michael Jackson. Ha ha!

BTW - when I was a teenager I had an obsession with candles and set alight to a toilet roll with one?! (I don't know why). It went up in flames really quickly and I was lucky to put it out. The whole time my parents were downstairs. You only have to turn your back for a second and kids will get up to ANYTHING! I know this first hand as I'm a teacher (11-18 year olds). Anyone with any sense knows this. The law is ridiculous and does protect the guilty and not the good/vunerable. It's so wrong.

Kandee, don't let them bastids grind you down! You know you are stronger than you think! We are all behind you! Everything will be alright.xoxo

info said...

Dear Kandee,
there are so many stupid people. I think they are all jealous. If you talk about your kids all people can see that they are the most important people in your life. Please stay brave. You give so much love and you deserve much more love.
Xoxo JoJo.

Kathecita said...

I still can't believe that a newspaper would report on someone who hasn't been charged and is only attending a hearing. Whatever happened with INNOCENT until proven guilty? Can you complain to the editor for defamation??
I just can't imagine a newspaper printing all alleged accusations, that's so preposterous!

misskelly1202 said...

Kandee, I've been watching your videos for a couple months now and following your blog. I have to say that you have changed my life. Your positivity and amazing spirit has inspired me in so many ways. Whenever I'm feeling negative or scared to try something in fear of failing, I think of you and those thoughts go away. Not to mention all the makeup tips you've given that I use everyday!! I'm sending lots of prayers your way during this tough time. Your little people are gorgeous and are SO blessed to have you as their mom.

Sierra Rose Floral and Gifts said...

So I have been thinking about you a lot lately. I just today saw you had blogged about why you were in trouble. That's terrible! It made me think of something though. God sometimes will use a storm to blow a bigger storm away. I know it's hard to see the bigger storm but when the sun shines through those dark clouds as they pass on you will see it. I called the police on someone while I was in my shop. My Mom called my borther to come to the shop. He was borrowing a truck. I was so shaken after the police left I decided I needed to go home. If he hadn't have come to the shop that storm would have been huge! As I pulled out to leave I realized the truck was on fire as I watched gas that was covered in flames drip from the truck. Who would have known what had happened...but I see it as God using my fear and nerves to run away but the whole time it was carefully planned out so I could keep my brother from a truck that would have exploded. So long story short. There is always a light at the end of the tunnel when you rely on God. We are all hear for you because God has put us here in your life. You bring us through our frowns and trials now step back and let us be there for you.

jeni said...

You don't deserve anything that is happening to you right now. How anyone can accuse you of being an unfit mother is just ridiculous.

If the newspaper is printing lies about you, you should be able to sue them for slander--that is if you want to deal with the courts again. Or at least bring that and the fact that they denied you a public defender to the attention of the judge.

You are a wonderful person and mother and I hope the best for you in this awful situation. Just remember that karma will come back to you and bless you with wonderful opportunities for dealing with this and kick those mean people in the behind.

With all the love you always send out in your blogs, videos, etc, we the viewers are returning the favor and sending you all the love and virtual hugs we can muster. Don't let anyone bring you down. We love you and will continue to support you.

LilSisOfaMarine said...

If anyone even read your blog, they'd know the truth just from the feel and emotion you speak with. I hope you have a better day. All of us are here for you. You are in my thoughts and prayers, along with your family. I love you Kandee Johnson!! You are a blessing in this world and more people need to be like you! Smile because in the end God will always love and that's what counts the most!

I can't believe someone would say something bad about you. You're such a amazing, sparkly and fabulous person. It feels so bad to know that people are judging you by a newspaper article, especially you. Every blog entry and video you make my day much better. Thanks to you I'm so much more positive and I love to compliment people, but most importantly now I'm not afarid to stand up to people, when I don't like the way they treat me. Your breakup bootcamp video even mended my friend's hart. You are more beautiful than you know, more talented then you think, and more loved than you can imagine! You have all of us to love you. My favorite quote is:"The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything, they just make the most of everything that comes along their way." It kinda remind me of you. You truly are the happiest! When life gets complicated I always think that hold on, it is crazy and hard, but it makes me stronger and in the future I will need this experience to suvive. So hold on, Kandee, I know it's hard, but it will get better.:)
Huge love, hugs and sparkles Sille :)

Always remember sweet heart, that Jesus, who was perfect, full of love and cured people and gave them so much hope and truths, when they were enslaved and burdened by their religious leaders' "traditions of men"... yes even this perfect man sent from our Creator, who was the first creation in the Universe, God's only begotten son, sent to release us of our inherited sin from Adam, yes this perfect man was falsely accuse, by his own people. The religious men that were suppose to be waiting for the Messiah, persecuted and had him put to death, and had a murderer released that day just so Jesus would be put to death... We are allowed to be put through trials. It's so tough that we all face such falseness against us at one point, and no one so much as Jesus. I hope this encourages you...That satan seeks to devour those with big hearts...anyone that reflects God's good qualities.
And you have no idea how much of a blessing you have been even to me, a stranger.
So many more love you, than the few who hurt you, although right now it feels like the odds are stacked against you, in the end, God knows your heart, and Jesus conquered the world for you to!

Chesca said...

You are too amazing. Don't let the rude people invade your kandeeland with their swampy gross mess. You should check you myspace. :)

marcia furman said...

Stay strong girl. Remember the "catapult" blog you wrote? God has some awesome things in store for you... I know it!

Anne said...

I'm really sad to learn these awful news. You really don't deserve all this crap! You're so nice & I'm sure that you're a good mother but it's so difficult to raise 3 children can't they understand this & be more tolerant??? Anyway I love you & I think to you & your 3 little people.

Jenni said...

I've always wanted to post a comment on your blog or your youtube or your Face Book but I figured so many people do all the time you'd never have the chance to read it. So since It seems you need it more than ever just some kind of encouragement here goes.

Dear Kandee,
I've read the hateful, sarcastic comments, the rude and ignorant ones people leave on all things Kandee...they have the right to express how they feel and all, but at the end of the day if one person out of those so many mean comments full of spite says Thank you Kandee I needed that today. Then all the yuckie people lose.

You have a positive impact on a countless amount of people. Including myself. It feels weird to say that you are something I look forward too whether it be one of your amazing encouraging blogs. Or just a peppy Vlog, It's like having a close friend. I use to hide behind make-up like I was wearing a mask and even though you are a make-up artist you make me feel like its not about the make-up and its no longer a mask I feel I have to hide behind. It's more of a form of art that I express the amazing person I am with.
I see the joy you radiate in your videos, the time you spend just keeping yourself healthy, your beautiful kids and how much they love you and you love them, your love of God, and just how much you impact people in a positive way, it makes me want to be that much of a better person.
I've had no so fun things happen in my life, I've had so many hard times where I've wanted to hide from the world. So many times when I've wanted to just give up and say to all the yuckie people that they win, I've pushed so many people away and just shut my heart out to everyone except the few people I love dearly. You have encouraged me so much, I would never be able to show you how much in words. My heart is opening and I am a better person because of you.
My daughter and I pray for you and we thank God for you as well. She watches some of your videos with me and calls you Miss. Kanny. We watched a video a while back of your daughter playing with your makeup, and she wanted to share her hello kitty lip gloss with her. You make everyday better for people you don't even know Kandee. I can only imagine how much better you make it for the people you love. Good Luck with everything I read the article you talked about and it seems like your average blown out of proportion sort of news story. Just know Kandee that you will come out of this stronger than ever.
-Jennifer

PS. WHAAAAAAT At your age there's no way! You look so youthful I always thought you were in the low 20's. You are so Beautiful inside and out Kandee. Good Luck again! Oh and I've loved the Alice in Wonderland books since I was a kid. wonderland was always the best place to get lost in. I've been waiting for the Tim Burton version to come out since 2007 when it was just a rumor. I've always wanted Tim Burton to have a take on the story because his mind is so fitting to the idea of Wonderland. Now that the premier is so close I've been waiting for all the promotional things to come out so I can hoard them all (YAY) I was excited about the OPI colors, but I didn't hear about the Book of Shadows till you showed me, and I GOT IT! haha Thank you so much!

Jessica R Bishop said...

Kandee we are all on your side. Don't let the negative comments get you down! You are an amazing person and the people who are leaving the negative comments will never know that because they will never take the time to get to know you. Keep your head held high and know that everything will work out in the end!

Missprofessorplum said...

Kandee,
I too had a time when mistruths were printed about me, and it's highly embarrassing, frustrating, upsetting, unfair, you name it. I hid in my bed, not wanting to go out in public. The worst part about society is how judgmental people are. It's so upsetting when you feel like you can't defend yourself because slanderous words have already been printed. It's asinine that your neighbor's unfounded, skewed observations from behind closed doors of their own home were printed and in turn translated to you being a horrible mother. That was pure opinion, it's not news, it's an opinion and they should be ashamed of themselves and the grief they were a part of causing. Nobody knows what's going on in your life, yet they allowed that biased, opinionated comment to be printed. Papers across the country print whatever the hell they want, without facts to support it. Whatever happened to only printing the truth?? It's more than obvious you are an incredibly kind, talented individual that unlike many people in this world have chosen a difficult path (if you believe in that), to learn, to be a survivor, and to share your story somehow, someway. You have an old soul, IMHO, and those of us that do get a rain pour of crap, but in the end we are stronger, victorious, wiser even. You have a wonderful blog, you tube site. You are very talented. This doesn't even need to be said. People are cruel. I find myself questioning God, the universe, often, wondering why do bad things happen to good people? I don't have an answer unfortunately, but there's supposedly a lesson in there somewhere. At least that's what I've been told. So hang your head up high, summon fierceness, and strike back against these allegations. I read the article and it was ridiculous!!! Shouldn't have been printed, not newsworthy! What is the law? They've attacked your character - character assassination. Dirty dishes? You have a case to fight. Apparently having dirty dishes in the sink and not having a sparkly, pine fresh, perfectly scrubbed kitchen is absolutely appalling!!! If that were the case half of America would have a serious problem. Very intrusive!

Honey Water said...

Kandee,

I suppose all of this is to be expected...you have committed yourself to sharing love with millions of people everyday, the enemy of your soul is not impressed, therefore THIS...the push back. But this only indicates Ms. Johnson, that you have made a significant impact of lives that were probably shrouded in darkness, you shone light in areas that haven't seen the light of day in years. I want to encourage you...DON'T STOP, those who sow in tears WILL reap in joy (that's a promise) Everything that the enemy intended for evil, God will us for God. All things work together for the GOOD of those who love Him. You are shining your light, don't let Satan blow it out. I sing that song with my daughter all the time "this little light of mine" don't hide your light under a bushel...let it shine!! God will bless you with EVERY spiritual blessing in heavenly places! Lovingly typed!! Remember...you ARE loved!!

Roxy Van Sparks said...

hey! kandee you are amazing!!! be strong, I've follewed you since I saw your audrey hepburn look on you tube and loved it so much!! I made my on version of that look that I wear every day!!! you make so many people happy with your videos, not only in the make-up field, your videos about life and your posts are so lovely and optimistic and it looks like you are such a warm hearted, such a magic soul, you have a gift you can make people smile through "little things" like make up, and singing, and just talking about your life expirience, I can tell that you are a truly amazing inspirational woman!!! be strong!!! everyone here loves you and support you!!!!
P.S: I live in Santiago de Chile, see??? you have reached people that are all the way in south america!!! XOXO :D!!!!

glamxc0ke said...

This too shall pass, beautiful girl!

Amanda S. said...

Kandee-
I wish you all the best in dealing with this situation. I would be a mess. It seems you have so much support on the good side of you, that the bad false side of things will not win. We all have your back.

Jane said...

Keep you head up! And if you need to go to the store, go there! Because all bets down,those people who are talking about you behind your back are too weak to say anything to your face. And that's what makes them sad cases. You shouldn't feel bad for yourself, you should feel bad for them! Don't ever feel defeated or disheartened by whatever negativity that's thrown your way because chances are, for every person who's saying something bad, there are a thousands of us out there who have your back because even if it's via youtube or whatever, we know your heart!

Fontaine Leonard said...

Kandee, In order to keep the kiddos safe from unnecessary neighbors, consider having them stay with your mom till this blows over. Also, Contact PrePaid Legal. Yes, I am a member. It has come in quite handy.

Kaity said...

I love you Kandee! I would send you all the money you need, but Money is really tight for me right now, too. But I'm praying for you, and remember that you are loved and that you are the best!

Leah said...

Oh, Kandee I'm SO sorry you have to go through this! I can't IMAGINE how horrible you must feel and how scared you are. I have been praying for you as I read your blogs and will continue to pray for you. I will talk to my husband tonight and see if we can send you some money - I would love to contribute to get you an attorney.

Love you.
- Leah

Bruna said...

Kandee,
I'm sure things will work out for you!! I say that with any doubt in my heart, and that is because you have God on your side, and that is the most important thing, and it always leads to victory! Even though sometimes this victory does not come in the way we expect, but I've learned that we could make something positive out of every expirience we go through in our lives, even the worst ones.

I just finished reading a book calles "The Christmas Sweater" by Glenn Beck.... and It was an awesome reading because it reminded me of the fact that God is ALWAYS there for us, even when we don't see it, even when we just fell so alone and unfair thing keep happening to us. And also caught my attention to the fact that most times things do not work out the way we wanted them to, but God knows better!!

Hang on, wrap your arms arround those who love you, and keep your mind the closest you can to God, because he's there for you! He really is!!

You're such an amazing person and my wish is that you stay strong through out the whole thing! Remeber that we cannot avoid something that happen to us, but we can choose the way we're gonnna react towards them ;)

I know it must be hard, but we are here for you!!

I wish I could be there to give you a hug filled with love and give some hope, pray with you, and just cry with you if thatá what you need. But since I can't since I live in Brazil I'm sending all my love and care to you through this almost book, cause it got so big ahahahahaha

Hugs filled with love to you!!

Bruna

Ralene McDonald said...

Kandee.

The will of God will never take you where the grace of God will not protect you.

You will have victory over this Kandee. Things are either God given or God used. God loves you too much to bring something bad on you, but he will use it to bring something better or to allow you to be a witness to others.

People need to hear your story, this just gives you one more thing that will allow you to relate to a few more people.

God will never leave your side or bring more on to you than you can bare.

We all love you Kandee and your spirit and love and happiness is contagious. It reminds everyone that joy is a decision and it is not shaken by circumstance.

Thanks for all that you do girlfriend!

Blessings,
Ralene

Just remember when those people are saying those nasty things that hurting people hurt people. Those nasty people have a such a low self image. There's only 2 ways to have the tallest building... either you can build the tallest, or you can knock everyone else's down. Those hateful people don't believe enough in themselves or love themselves enough to build up their self image, so they try and knock everyone else's down so they can feel more comfortable and their insecurities are highlighted by your self confidence. Those people are just too cowardly to face their demons so they hide behind their secret screen names and don't ever leave their real name or information so you can contact them and discuss it personally with them if they are having such a difficult time with the story .

We love you! Just wanted to let you know!

Katie Cotton said...

Oh kandee - i admit i have been out of touch! For so long i read your blog every day, watched your videos, felt the joy come out of you. The past month or so i've just been so busy that i havent made any videos of my own or been keeping up with blogs. Darn those holidays! But today i decided to check in and try to get back on track and I read this post. I have no idea what you are going thru, i will try to get caught up, but please keep your head high! You are a beautiful person! Too beautiful to let the stupid people of the world get you down!!!

Beautifully Broken said...

Keep filling you mind with postive thoughts...keep out those who try and tear you down-God has brought you too far! WE LOVE YOU!

Under the Mistletoe said...

It's not fair, and i know where you're coming from, just the other end of it. Nothing was taken away, but it should have been.
a few years ago in my household there was problems with abuse. Not accusations, real happenings. You could see it in both my brother and me, and yet my parents skirted away from trouble without a blink of an eye.

And now this happening to you, an amazing mother, and a hard working getting punished for something that was blown out of proportion. It's not fair, and it makes me want to cry.

But Kandee. You Will get through this, and your little ones will be home with you, and everything will be right as rain.
there is no way that you wont win this battle.
everyone can see that you try so hard to be a good mom and bring home some food for the table.

Be strong miss Kandee, and cry when you need to. It refreshes the mind.
Know where you Stand. Be the person we all know you are. A Strong loving Mother.

We love you Miss Kandee.
You Will win this battle.

CosmoFreakaLeak said...

all i can say is..you can't let what people say about you affect you. you are in the public eye and you need to delete the comments and emails because only you know the person you are and you can't let this affect you because then they have succeeded. you need to keep looking ahead and never look back and dont let anyone bring you to your knees. i have been in situations myself with 3 children and a single mom. people are going to judge you and as long as you know you are trying your hardest then FUCK THEM! lol like Tupac said "only God can judge me"!!

Kamani said...

Hold your head up and know that God is always with you.

carollauren said...

Kandee,

I've been a fan of your blog and your youtube videos (I even follow you on twitter) for quite a while now but I've never commented on any of your posts. I wanted to let you know that you are such an inspiration and your videos always make me smile. You have amazing energy & spirit. It's such a shame what you are going through. I donated, but I wish I had more to give. You are much loved and I wish you the best. Whoever wrote you the note in the jury duty letter was spot on! Keep your head up girl!
Much love,
Carol

A Strong Woman vs. A Woman Of Strength

A strong woman works out every day,
Pride in her appearance she portrays,
But a woman of strength kneels to pray,
Keeping her soul in shape, God leading the way.

A strong woman isn't afraid of anything,
Looking forward to challenges each day will bring,
Women of strength show courage in the midst of fear,
Knowing triumph through faith because the Lord is near.

Strong women won't let anyone get the best of them,
So skilled in defense even if they have to pretend,
Yet a woman of strength gives her best to everyone,
Being anointed with divine blood from the only begotten Son.

A strong woman relies on the physical attributes making her tough,
In her search for power and money she will never have enough,
A woman of strength understands that it’s not about material stuff,
Knowing that before becoming a diamond first she’ll be in the rough.

A strong woman sometimes disguises her feelings shadowed by clouds,
Unhinged when challenged on her policy becoming boisterous and loud,
A woman of strength concerns herself not with judgment from others.


A strong woman is easily impatient back and forth she will begin to pace,
Counting on her holier than thou attitude instead of depending on faith,
A woman of strength is assured trust in God will always carry her through,
And at the Creator’s appointed time she’ll receive all that is justly due.

A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same for tomorrow,
Refusing to take time looking back with reverence and Godly sorrow,
The woman of strength realizes life's mistakes no matter how slim,
While thanking God for the blessings as she capitalizes on them.

A strong woman walks head first with no doubt in her mind,
Again, no matter what, she’ll not make this mistake a second time,
But a woman of strength knows God will catch her when she falls,
So when a situation arises again, she’s not afraid to answer the call.

A strong woman wears the look of confidence on her face,
Always doing whatever it takes to finish, seeking only first place,
The woman of strength competes with an emotional sense of grace,
Understanding it’s more important to run a Holy Spirit filled race.

A strong woman has faith that for the journey she’ll have enough,
No matter how uneven the terrain or roads being rocky and rough,
A woman of strength knows it’s in the journey she will become strong,
And the love of God is forever with her, no matter how difficult or long.

A strong woman when uninformed thinks that she is being mistreated,
In the end her physical attributes fail causing doubt to become seeded,
A woman of strength will compromise as a little give and take is needed,
Why? Because a lesson not learned the first time is soon to be repeated.

Ladies! Philippians 4: 6, start everyday with supplication & prayer,
Trust and believe that God will always get you from here to there,
And should your giant steps seem to be moving only inch by inch,
The journey is not as A Strong Woman but A Woman Of Strength.

w/Dee Cheeks

All my love to the worlds sweetest Kandee :)

Erica Rose said...

Kandee,
First of all, I am SO proud of you for all you do! It sure takes the hard times to really see how many people truly care about you! And I'm pretty sure there are more people that care about you than the ones who's opinion's don't matter! And if the people who are talking are people in the town that I'm pretty sure you're speaking of, believe me, their opinion's don't matter! Most of those people probably have nothing better to do than to be jealous of people who are doing things with their lives. And God bless the person who wrote that note! I hope that all of your fans, family, and friends can give you back 10 times the amount of joy that you have given us. When I have a bad day, I go watch your videos and I feel so much better! Thank you for giving me a chance to smile when I need to! Love you lots! Erica Rose

Hey so I'm not a lawyer but I know a lot about the law. I could help you out a little. First you can't be denied representation. If you want I could give you some tips on how to get out of this mess. You can contact me at egm5032@gmail.com, I can help with the legal side.

Meeshy said...

Eric is right. you can't be denied representation. i'm going to leave some feedback that isn't going to be all sunshine to some because I feel someone has to say it. First of all be careful Kandee seriously. As much as the blogging and you tube videos has been fantastic you cannot trust the web and open online community to save you here. Although there is much love, there are also many who are quick to judge, child advocacy groups and people who just want to cause trouble who will use your blog and you tube videos against you. That picture where you posed in front of bars should not have been posted. Something like that people can use against you. Also, I would also remove all your posts from early november from your blog because that is fodder for tabloid articles. If someone needs a story they have it at their fingertips. You are very talented, with a great spirit, and a great heart but you need to beware and be careful. I've lived in LA, I know celebrity, I know people and I've seen it all. Maybe you have everything "under control". Maybe I'm being ridiculous, but you can't just rely on the blind faith that the love from your internet buddies, your family, god and your LA buddies will get you through this. I guess what I'm saying is GET REAL..regardless of the fact this is pure lies, you have no faith in the justice system...blah blah...you need to protect yourself. You have a budding career, and reputation to save. Be careful now with your online blogging. Remember Hollywood will build you up as fast as they will take you down ie. Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan...don't be naive now. I've been in the LA cloud, and I get it..but my east coast roots in me have provided me with a sense of getting real. When the going get tough, the tough get going.

How can someone possibly judge in that way? that is just so sad :(. But God is doing this for some purpose and he wont leave you alone!. Please dont keep stop reading your blog, facebook, youtube or myspace(in wich all of them i am your fan,friend, subscriber etc..) comments of this really nice people that just love you for wath you had done to our lives just trough your words.
I really hope you read this comment cuz you are an important person in my life, and i am not joking.
Keep yourself possitive kandee!
xoxo girl :)

My heart sank when I read your post about your charges and the newspaper scandal. I've donated but please keep us updated on the progress of finding an attorney and let us know if you need anything else!!!! WE LOVE YOU!!!!!

Betheey.x said...

hiya kandee, i would like to let you know that my thoughts are with you now more than ever before and will remain this way for eternity. You are an inspiration to me from the moment i first watched one of your videos just a few weeks ago. My heart was instantly touched by the tremendous amount me beauty, talent, and this kind warmth that you pocess. You truly are amazing. From the second i watched your video i saw a difference, a light in you, nothing that i'd ever seen anyone before, different from all the rest. With you bright tender loving eyes, your gorgeous glossy hair, your flawless perfect skin and your warming smile you truly did give me instant inspiration. Your tremendous talent is far greater than you i have ever seen, and i hunger to be just like you. I'd like you know that when i was first inspired by the first video of yours i watched, i had to watch more and in one night i watched each and everyone of your videos beginning to end, and from then on you immediately become my one and only idol, something i'd never had before and it was just because i have never been inspired by such a wonderful person.
I pray for you kandee in my heart from hear on as you really are a work of wonder and a true gift from god (if you believe that sort of thing). And for all those spiteful and selfish haters you have, who spread awful rumours about you, leave heartless comments or make selfish remarks please ignore them (besides they are probably jealous anyone). Unfortunately life is full of these types of people and its just the way it is and everybody has them, am i right? So at these times we just have to keep our heads held high and smile.
My thoughts are with you forever and always kandee.
I would also like to apologise that i don't think i can donate as i am british and can't pay in dollars, and i pray that you accept my apologies as i would most certainly be more than willing to help you if could.
So i'm coming to the end of my comment and the last thing i couldn't resist telling you is how i am in love with your name. I love it and i die to name a child of mine after you, it's gorgeous and you never know they even turn out as wonderful as you are. Well what can i say really, a beautiful name for a beautiful person with a beautiful face with the most beautiful personality.
True love,
Betheey xx

DEAR "NEGATIVE NELLY'S:

Even after going out this evening with friends, I still cannot shake this situation OR some of the negative comments I have witnessed people say with regards to Kandee. She may be more accustomed to dealing with this (being a public persona of sorts), but I on the other hand am not, and cannot help but be disheartened by some of the views expressed.

Yes, I am educated and well-versed on what is going on in the world. Yes, we have ALL had obstacles in life to overcome and some people would view this situation as "trivial" in comparison to their lives and own personal issues....but isn't their a much greater PRINCIPLE at hand??

Too many times we hear of the injustices that occur, but feel powerless to anything about it. This is a moment where we all see the potential for injustice, and it hits close to home. We have all become Kandee's "friends" and feel like we know her; because of that, we SHOULD take the opportunity to voice our concerns and make her TRUE character be known to those people in power.

So before people are quick to "judge" and reply with negative comments, try to consider that this is not just about Kandee Johnson.... speaking out represents ALL the good people in the world who have had their character brought into question or been accused of something they did not do (however great or small).

HAVE YOU ever been ridiculed or judged over something that wasn't true?
HAVE YOU ever had to endure the Legal system over something that wasn‘t true?
HAVE YOU ever lost a friend or loved one over something that wasn‘t true?
HAVE YOU ever lost a job or other opportunity over something that wasn‘t true?

IF SO, ASK YOURSELF:

What could have turned out differently if just ONE PERSON spoke out in your defense?

monavampire said...

ok, so I'm really sorry about all this stuff cuz seriously it sucks. I mean - sometimes it's great that police has its eye on criminals and all that stuff (not the same thing in my country...) but on the other hand...the situation like yours.
I wanna admit that I'm not saying this because I like you and appreciate what you do BUT...from your notes I can feel that you have to be very desperate because you have to prove to the others how much you love your children! It's in fact riddiculous. Maybe you made something wrong, but I think that you feel kinda guilty in your heart already because your children had to participate in all that stuff and you have to..
I wish I can help you and donate you but I have no possibility (I live far away from there). But I cross my fingers and I hope you guys will be ok. If you need an arm to cry (and again - I hope you have one!) please, write to me.
xoxoxoxo

Meeshy said...

Please don't get me wrong. I think it's beautiful that Kandee has a group of people speaking up and supporting her in her defense BUT these are serious allegations here. She can EASILY be the most renowned make up artist, and these allegations can just as EASILY get in her way. What would be the most ideal situation is maintaing her following but also her having all the legal help to fight the allegations in the court of law which we must abide by.

Meeshy said...

Kandee aren't there any pro bono lawyers who can assist you?

mszoe said...

I don't usually comment on things but I do watch your vids n follow u on Facebook etc and after reading the things you r going through I just felt so sad, as a mother I can only imagine what this whole situation is doing to you but you are strong enough to get through you have the support of so many people.As for those that feel it is appropriate to be so mean towards you they are not worth your time or tears and perhaps if they had "researched" you like they say then they would see the real you that we all know and support!! xoxo

watson_e_J said...

Dear Kandee,
I was very sorry to read your blog and find out what has happened to you. It makes me sad to hear that people could accuse you of such horrible things. Since I've been reading your blogs it's made me change the way I think about things and you're completely right in saying bad things only make us stronger, etc. I really hope that there is enough help on your side for you to get through this.
Much love from over here in the UK, Exxx

MissPettyThings said...

PLEASE SHOW YOUR SUPPPORT TO KANDEE EVERYONE!!

http://www.petitionspot.com/petitions/kandeejohnsonrocks/

Regardless of your views, we have all been inspired by her in some way (hence why you are all "followers" of her Account)...and words of encouragement really go along way.

CONSTRUCTIVE advice is always appreciated, but being cruel or judgemental is just unecessary.

...Just put yourself in her shoes...We would ALL hope to have a "positive" suppport system around us.

Michele said...

Kandee,
I also work for the courts in Washington State and I agree with the comment from Texas. The courts are a labyrinth if you don’t know the system. I sit in court as a judicial assistant and hear cases that the defendants are representing themselves and I want to jump to my feet and yell….You are not making the right move…You should be asking for a motion to dismiss for lack of evidence etc, etc. Please, please, please get yourself a good attorney. You are too good of a person and so sweet you do not need the courts to rake you over the colds like this. You read all the times in the papers that people that are really bad get off because of one tiny technical issues and the go out and hurt (kill) innocents. Please get a really good attorney and let them handle this crappy charge. I was a single mom too, trying to work and protect my son….. so hard and sometime impossible to do. I love your wonderful warm self Kandee. Please take care and let the courts and your attorney fight this out. If your attorney knows the Judges and gets one with a genuine heart you are home fee. Be strong!

Love and in my prayers,
Michele Howard


This inspiring verse may help when you during this hard time.
________________________________________

You Mustn't Quit
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest! If you must--but never quit.

Life is queer, with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won if he'd stuck it out;
Stick to your task though the pace seems slow --
You may succeed with one more blow.
Success is failure turned inside out --
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt --
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit --
It's when things seem worst that YOU MUSTN'T QUIT.

I hope things look up for you. While I may not have been able to donate much, I hope it adds up to enough to get you a good attorney that can wipe this from your record. It's unfortunate that good people get slandered but take what you can from this and move on to something bigger and better. You've definitely got a lot of promise and you brighten the lives of many.

Good Luck!
