Has Kimkins Lost a Staff Member?

Update from an anonymous KK member -

"Well Kimmer must have felt forced to reply. She says that she and Becky had differences about how the website should be run and Becky was worried about liability exposure from her posts. Becky requested to be removed as a mod a few days ago but stopped posting and answering emails weeks ago. Kimmer says she and Becky don't see "eye to eye on the important Kimkins issues." But she thinks Becky is brilliant and wishes her the very best. (of course she does cause Kimmer's all sweetness and light as we know)"

Differences about the website and liability exposure - that's a far cry from Christin's explanation that "Kimmer said that Becky (Littlebit) is taking a break and starting a family business."

When several other high-profile members had been banned from the site, Kimmer gave explanations similar to the one above, saying that one in particular had become too busy with her teaching job, bla bla bla. Kimmer never came out and said "Well, I banned her!" Noooo.. of course not, that wouldn't paint the picture that Kimmer tries so hard to present of herself.

The truth ALWAYS comes out!

Anyone who's ever been to the Kimpire knows what a HUGE asset moderator "littlebit" has always been...she created the entire "newbies" forum, made many of the "stickies" of information and has been frontline "on deck" since last summer to answer questions, particularly during Kimmer's many absences.

It has been noticed about 2 weeks ago that she wasn't posting as much and some have checked in on her account status from time to time. Since the 15th, she's been showing as logging in but clearly only lurking...no posting which is WAY out of character for her, especially as paid staff.

Today, her name and bio have been removed from the staff team page...this is HUGE news! No announcement of any kind has been made about it that anyone could see.

What happened to "littlebit"?

We will update as more information becomes available!

Becky (Littlebit) took her Kimkins affiliate advertising off of her blog too.

It seems as though she has severed ties with Kimkins! There do not seem to be any "farewell" posts on the Kimkins forum however, which is very odd.

Becky was a very popular and prolific poster, a true Kimkins Cheerleader and a paid staff member with a biography on the main page of the website.

Why has she left? Was it her choosing or Kimmers? We wonder....

It's very weird because it looks like she's online tonight. But she posted her email on her challenge group several weeks ago and said if she "disappears" for people to email her. Odd.

Regandy (the cruise director) is supposed to meet Christin and littlebit soon to discuss details for the cruise. I wonder if littlebit will show up. It's obvious from regandy's post that she doesn't know that littlebit left kimkins.

Even her (Becky) Daily Plate is now locked down! All references and affiliate links to Kimkins are scrubbed from her blog too! They're still cached in google, but the pages or references have been deleted or edited on her blog.

Christin posted that "Kimmer said that Becky (Littlebit) is taking a break and starting a family business, but we hope that she'll be back to post soon! :) I really love her words of wisdom and encouragment too!"

Kimmer said? Christin, the PR Director didn't know she was leaving beforehand?

Kimmer said? And Christin, the lap dog, barks the excuse out to the members....

If Becky was leaving for the excuse given today, SHE WOULD HAVE posted a good-bye message to those members who follow her and listen to her.

My bet? She questioned things and Kimmer fired her!

Even if Littlebit "appears" online...that doesn't mean anything.

There are several banned members that are still made to "appear" active users. *rolleyes*

Like she would go through all that effort of removing kimkins links and banners etc that bring in revenue through no effort of her own for something she believes in just because of a family business? I don't think so!!!

Wow - that's a huge blow to Kimkins if littlebit is truly gone. Forget cold, calculating Kimmer, it was Becky who was the heart and soul of that place.

I wonder how many people who signed up for that cruise are now regretting it. Hope they can get their deposits back.

I was suspicious as soon as I found out Kimmer wasn't even going on the the Kimkins cruise. Something definitely fishy there! I wouldn't be surprised if the whole thing gets cancelled eventually.

The truth is being revealed for the lawsuit!

Encourage people who were members of Kimkins to join the Kimkins lawsuit!
