I have met Kim
19 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I do not recall seeing the movie but I have met Kim personally and stumbled upon this story by accident. I love to Google people to see what I find and well I found this. Let me tell everyone she is doing great and because of her past I feel she has to be the strongest most beautiful woman I may have ever met. Kim is a wonderful mother to her daughters and yes she may have messed up in her past but darn I did too and I am sure you did. God forbid there would had been a camera following us. I have not met a women yet that was not molested or rape and it did not lead to fast behavior in some way at one point in their life but the bigger picture is that she is working to overcome her past and build a bright future.
