Kenya Moore

Kenya would never flirt with another woman's husband.

REALITY TEA AND THE REAL ME

This has been a truly amazing week for me. During a weeklong press trip to NY I got to visit the vibrant and funny larger-than-life Andy Cohen as a guest of Watch What Happens Live! In case you missed it please visit Bravotv.com. It’s great to be able to reveal more of who I am outside of the RHOA and their short clips of me every week.

The highlight of the week was my appearance on the Wendy Williams show. It felt like I was hanging out with an old girlfriend. Wendy is tough but I LOVE her outspokenness, realness, and the sweetness underneath the hard shell. Hmmm… wonder why?

I got to set the record straight on the Cynthia Bailey Jet casting debacle and my undeserved mean girl moniker and why my visceral reaction to ignorance and blatant disrespect in regards to my journey to Miss USA and where and who I am today.

Watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qs8bielrsYg

I’m on my way to a much-deserved vacation… Thanks for all the love and support! I appreciate all of you who are giving me a chance to win your hearts over because “I’m already in yo’ head Anna Mae” – Ike Turner.

Okay, I watched this show.  There was a marathon of shows today.  This is the first time I have watched this show, so my opinion is totally objective.  Here's what I thought:

 

I understand that this is reality tv, and drama is a part of it.  But, Kenya's drama is annoying.  Wherever there was an issue, you were in the middle of it.

 

The continual flirting with other women's husbands was not amusing.  I felt it was disrespectful to the women and it really was vulgar.    

 

And, the desperation for a husband is sad.  She is attractive and should not have to beg to be loved.  The continual "marry me"  "When?"  "Can we elope?"  "In 3 days?" and on and on was so demeaning to her.  I have never seen a woman act this way, actually.  If someone doesn't want you, you should not want him.  Who wants to talk a man into marrying you?  

 

Kenya calling Apollo and his wife "unprofessional" was ironic.  The person on the series whose behavior was most unprofessional was Kenya.  I know she is trying to make a living, but no amount of money is worth demeaning yourself.

personally, I don't think Kenya is wrong for pushing Apollo in the pool. I think Apollo and Kenya were both flirting with each other honestly. it was clear that they were both attracted to one another. Although, Kenya was wrong for asking Phaedra "would she let Apollo sleep with one of her friends." I do not want to say I dislike Kenya but I would suggest for a 41 year old women who claims to be "wifey material" sure doesn't seem like it to me. If she keeps running around flirting with men in front of Walter and acting like a teenager, he's NEVER going to marry her.Get it together girl and stop putting marriage on him. if he wants to marry you, he will!

Kenya,

I love your energy and your spirit. Yes, it may be a bit much for some of the women on the show, and clearly a lot of the posters on here, who are super-rude in their postings to you. The men are the ones who should be on the hot seat not you...but its so typical for a black woman to go after another woman, instead of holding her man accountable.

 

Apollo - He is the guilty one, you are not married. And, when couples vacation, someone always ends up in the pool, unwanted. No big deal. However, him picking you up and placing his hands near your bottom. That was a violation of the covenant he shares with his wife. You did nothing wrong. Phaedra should have said something to him.

 

Peter - So I think it was all in fun, but somewhat inappropriate. It's not exactly okay to drop it on someone else's husband, but once again, he could have turned around and faced his wife, but he chose not too.

 

These women will paint you as the devil no matter what you do, but I love the fact that you own your mistakes and do not consume yourself with the vitrol that is being thrown your way. Poor little Porsha, cant get over you, because that is all she ever talks about on the show and in her blogs. She is definitely a little inexperienced for this group.

 

NeNe will be your next big enemy, but you can ignore her, because she is as ghetto as the projects are dirty, and trying to buy her way out it. Did you notice how ghetto she was speaking in Anguilla compared to her party at the beginning of the season, she is so fake. She should just own her "ghetto-ness" instead of trying to cross over.

 

Stay beautiful and real. But seriously, no more 3-way conversations with married couples, its very trashy, even in fun. :-)

Kenya, You are an embarrassment. How sleazy of you to ask that crazy question of Phaedra and her husband. You must think the role you played in Trois is reality. Note to Kenya, loving married couples don't invite other people into their bedroom.

First off, for someone who acted like a COMPLETE child when Walter told you he asked Kandi out before, you should know better!! Second, it completely disrespectful to flirt with a man in front of his wife regardless if your intentions were "harmless" (in your mind). You lucky, Phadera or Cynthia didn't open up a can of "harmless" Whoop.. you better watch that.

Your aunt seems like a cool lady. You say she raised you too. Maybe you should try and act like her, or at least listen to her. You may gain some fans if you start showing some restraint. Nobody likes watching you flip the freak out every 60 seconds.

Kenya, everybody who has written negative comments about you...they probably do not have what it takes to be Miss Road Kill let alone Miss USA.  You are a part of living history...Yes you are off the chain and wild like college, but the heart and the hurt underneath I can see.  I would hang with your passionately coocoo for coco puffs butt.  It is offensive being on the husband of someone else particularly someone who you have no relationship with. And you know you should expect a lot of insecurity and intimidation around you...some people don't play like that, but you know some do.  I know Cynthia is hating about that gorgeous hair.  None of them are real women maybe Kandi, but if I didn't like it, I would have just came up to you kindly and told you I am uncomfortable with that, but my husband can tell me he thinks someone is sexy because we have so much love between us and we believed in til death do us part.  Girl I think you are like me but I have calmed down A LOT. I love ya!  all of the negative comments below mean that you still got it baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

Now you just look like a liar. You were flirting with Apollo and other man in front of ur own. What women sits their and begs for a ring and then flirts with just about every man their. Maybe your ex saying you two were all fake for the show is true.

Kenya, your behavior is embarrassing for a woman of your age.  You crave so much attention. Everything has to be about YOU.  I'm so over you and I really hope you don't come back to this show!!

Wonder why you have not posted this week....hmmm could it be your busted flirting with Apollo and you where put in your place as you should be.  You have no business being on this show you are disgusting and I am so over you.  Don't come back next season oh and so much for Walter after going on radio saying your a joke he moved on as fast as he could good for him

I saw a clip of the next episode--the one where you and Porsha yell at each other while the other ladies observe....I don't know what to say.  You were both wrong.  Porsha was wrong for referring to your age (again) and you were just wrong for not maintaining your composure when she talked to you.

I so love Kenya! I do hope she wouldn't go after Apollo though especially when Walter is so handsome! I do believe the act between u two because there is obviously no love or respect. But u are the most interesting and defiantly giving those girls a run for there money!

Why do you people want her to leave, she is doing exactly what the network wants by bringing a little drama. People, this isn't a soap opera,  it's reality tv. Kenya's fine, hell they kept Sheree too long and she wasn't doing anything except smelling Kim's butt because she probably wanted Kim to introduce her to one of kroy's teammates and trying to start a whack clothing line. Kenya's independent, has a real job and real personal issues that people can relate to, and that's what she brings to the show. I don't want to watch a boring show. She has bought life back to RHOA along with Nene and even Porsha who thinks life works out the way you plan it?  Kenya keep on, keeping on! never mind the negative. People tend to throw stones at glass houses, nobody's perfect!  Lastly, Kim was the one that needed to go, nobody wants to see a woman continually leeching off rich men and thinking having babies is going to keep the marriage....it's not, DIVORCE will come because anyone who treats their mama and daddy like yesterdays garbage can't have a successful relationship. Why would they give her a spin off is unbeknownst to me. Why Andy?

After watching this season thus far, I can definitely understand why you are still single Kenya...

 

You're rude, crass, desperate (for a man and attention), pretentious, classless, and the list goes on and on! You are well on your way to being single and friendless forever if your behavior continues! I feel soooooooo sorry for Walter as I watch the show. I honestly can't figure out what he sees in you because when I look at you, I definitely do not see a good example of a future wife or mother! Please clean up your act because you are a horrible representation of black women everywhere!

Kenya I think you are Fabulous and have a good heart -I just think that you are misunderstood.  You don't portray arrogance or appear to be snobbish and that's a good thing.  

 

We all have areas that we need to work on.  I hope that you find your way and remember true love comes from within.  When you know that and embrace that then your husband will come.  

 

continued blessings

Kenya, you need help.  They need to get rid of you and if they don't, I think alot of people will stop watching if you remain on the show.  You need to fall on the sword and leave the show with grace and dignity.....oh yeah you don't have either.....JUST LEAVE!!!!

Ohhh Kenya.... you are crazzzzzy!!!! stop flirting with other women's HUSBAND's and find your own. Clearly if you didn't act this way in front of the guy you want to propose to you then maybe just maybeeee you might already have a ring on your finger. It doesn't even seem like you want to be married but more so just have a wedding. if that's the case then throw yourself a huge party and keep other people who you clearly don't want to be committed to out of the crossfire of your craziness. i hope you join kim and follow her out the door because you are clearly fake and crazy!

I've never thought a former ms. USA would have such low self esteem. I think Walter can see right through your bs and that's why he hasn't proposed yet, and why would he. You seem to be so fake and it makes u look super ugly. It's not the outside that matters, it what's on the inside and to me your an epic fail on both fronts.

Your 15 minutes of fame was up back in the 90’s. Who did you sleep with or bribe to win Miss USA??? You surely didn’t win with your personality or your attitude. I enjoy watching the RHOA, but watching you is like listening to fingernails on a chalkboard. Please make this your first and only season on RHOA.

 @BeainAtlanta I agree!  I felt that she was "unprofessional" because she brought up about role playing in bed.  Regardless of her looks, a man will not be with someone so desperate as she is.  Sad case isn't it?

 @akiraalauren Phaedra was a pretty cool lady not to check Kenya about 3 different times. Sure, Apollo probably liked the attention but cheating with Kenya? Not worth it. Apollo may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer but he knows he has a good wife and a beautiful son. He's not going to risk his marriage for such a desperate, unlikable piece of .....oh. Pardon me. Where are my manners. Here's to you Phaedra. I'll take a cue from you and hush up my mouth. mmmmmm..MMMMM! (and Walter will marry her when pigs can book a flight on Delta.)

PrissyProf,

 

We must be watching 2 different episodes.

 

So let's say Apollo made the first move.. OK he did.. phaedra should have handled that however, WHEN Kenya first met Apollo she did make comments about how fine he looks and even when he was dressed up.

Then she asked Phaedra some crap about "what 2 friends would she want apollo to be with" or something like that.

 

Now if that is the making of a Real and Beautiful woman .. then all the Real and beautiful ones are in trouble.

 

Then she's not a housewife, so like another poster wrote,  Bravo  must have added her to the show to bring the drama.

I think most of the time she's acting though.. however terrible it might be.

 

At her age she should represent to empower women not to tear them down 

**the walter situation is a whole other storyline**

@ThePrissyProf I agree about the Apollo comment.....he is the married guy, who from the pool scene picks Kenya up like Rhett Butler picked up Scarlett, carrying her up that winding staircase, thats called "manhandling".....and back in the days of Rhett and Scarlett, thats what men did when they wanted to prove dominance, and romance....kind of kinky sounding, but in ancient times, women liked that stuff, Apollo being from the South and all, I figured it came natural to him. But the video clearly shows that his hands grabbed an ample amount of bootage....and lingered....i saw the whole thing....Kenya merely pushed him.... I now understand why Kenya makes the comment "gone with the wind fabulous"....how could any woman after being handled like Rhett Butler's sack of love not have that most epic movie on their mind....no, Kenya bares no blame for that....

 @leslie.gallagher.10

 Are you kidding me? Women that are secure about themselves don't have to go on a reality show to brag about themselves. If Kenya is all that, where is her husband, boyfriend,, what happened to the six proposals I would like for them to tell us what happened? 

 

To show how insecure Kenya is when Walter told her he asked Kandi out she had to go to the bathroom to compose herself (Walter should have left) she has issues.  Why is she on the show if she is ALL that she thinks that everyone is beneath her, (remember she is Ms. USA and so what?  This is 2013, she was lucky or she paid through her nose to get it.  It was a pagent, Kenya has nothing on Condi Rice now that's a strong intelligent African American female who has every reason to brag. 

 

We are not hating on Kenya please know that we write about what we see..  Suggesion:  Kenya should stay in her lane as a Producer behind the camera.

@Nastybaby Kenya lost her composure(actually she has a short fuse), because she is so jealous of Porsha. Porsha was born ino privilege, Kenya's mother denied having her and doesn't want anything to do with her. Porsha has a loving husband, Kenya has no one.

 @cas549 Kenya's got no shame in her game.  She's outright mocking Walter, Phaedra, and Porsha. Though Porsha deserves it, and maybe Walter.  I don't know why she's mocking Phaedra. Suppose it's the drama factor.  She seems to like mocking people with mild or timid personalities.

@Nikki_10 Kenya wasn't hired to be a representation of black women. Kenya was hired to bring drama...which is hat she does. I do feel sorry for her because Walter will never marry her. SHE came to Atlanta because SHE wanted to get married, not because Walter wanted her to move to Atlanta. Walter was perfectly fine with a long distance "arrangement".
