You might have heard some rumors floating around about Kenya Moore and her relationship with Walter that you've seen playing out on screen during The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Are they true? Absolutely not, Kenya tells us.
In a statement to The Dish, Kenya sets the record straight about anything you've heard Walter say this week: "The truth is and has always been that I want to be in a loving, honest, long-term relationship with someone who genuinely loves me for me – Walter’s recent statements are completely false. I am embarrassed that I allowed a deceitful and hateful person in my life. He says he 'did it for fame.'"
Pretty direct, no? But wait, there's more.
"I’ve been humiliated enough by appearing desperate for a man to marry me who now admits he had his own agenda. I urge viewers to stay tuned because the truth will come to light. I am moving on from this situation and hope he can as well with respect and dignity going forward. I have heard the fans and my friends loud and clear… I can do better than Walter, and I will."
Indeed ... here's a little taste of what's to come on Atlanta
Kenya needs to have a relationship with the Lord, then she will be made whole and can let go of her past. Next, I think Walter backed off because you were acting dramatic and crazy like your stools dont stink like the rest of us. You may have everything you think you want but you will never be happy until you look at yourself and change what makes you feel the way you do about yourself. Walter seemed like a nice reserved guy who was on guard as he should of been when getting with someone after a marriage and then with someone who is just about over the hill. Lets face it men arent ready to settle down until thirty something and if a woman does not have a husband by thirty there is something wrong with her like everybody else only she did not do the homework to check herself and bow down, the world is not just about you all the time. Learn to love others and they will love or like you. Oh and that shower situation, just because you are beautiful and most men would do you first, we have to learn to give a llittle. Beat your flesh into subjection and learn to bow down to get a good man.
Kenya--you fell all over yourself begging Walter to marry you and while the both of you could pretend date you can't pretend marry and now you act like it's only all Walter's fault? Stop playing teen games, grow up, get therapy even if you don't like what you may hear and move on before you ever have a husband--let alone a child!
Kenya is beautiful, smart, successful, and confident. Everything a woman should be =)
Good for you Kenya! So glad you got that jerk out of your life. He obviously has some baggage from other relationships in his head from past relationships. He acted like a big @ss kid.
The only one that should be humiliated is you Kenya. You are so egotistical and single minded that I can't imagine anyone would want to spend any time with you at all. I won't watch next season if you're on.
What we've seen on RHOA makes it very clear that Kenya is mentally and emotionally unstable. She is too far along in life (age 42) to be so LOST and INSECURE! Even if Walter did propose to her (which clearly would never happen since they weren't even in a REAL relationship), she still would never be happy because she is so insecure in herself. Happiness with another person is hard to find if you are not even happy with yourself! Her behavior is disturbing and just sad!!
Kenya, I don't know what your intentions were for wanting to be on the RHOA, but you have done more harm for yourself than good. The way that you have acted and your crazy antics will discourage anybody from wanting to work with you now. Everybody can see that you have some pyschological issues and your desperation for wanting to get married will turn any genuine, decent man off from wanting to have a serious relationship with you, let alone marry you. Some scrubs or losers will try to take advantage of your desperation, but I hope that you don't go there. It seems that you have a great need to be validated by people, which usually comes from insecurities. Get yourself some serious therapy and learn to like yourself and that will make you become a better person. Then you will see things changing for the better and you will be able to attract the right man in your life who will love and marry you. But you MUST make a change.
Kenya you can not continue to walk around with EYES WIDE SHUT. You heard what you wanted to hear and that is why this marriage business is a disappointment .
Concentrate on the rest of your life and a good man will come your way.
Thank God you did not end up with Walter. Now you can see why he is divorced. But really the signs were there. He told your aunt that the reason his marriage did not work was because he was not IN LOVE. Then my next question would have been, well Walter are you in love with Kenya? He probably would have said no ... not yet. So for now if you are looking for a great guy, pray for one, don't run after him. He may not come to you right now but when it is right, the one you will need in your life will be right there.
Good luck and enjoy the holiday. Believe me you are better off without Walter.
Kenya whatever Walter's agenda's may be, I don't see the two of you being a couple. The class you quick to mention you have then you really need to start showing it.
Why so many dislike Kenya? SHE BELONGS IN THIS SHOW... We need the drama... You know you will stop watching if this kind of drama isn't there... Since I started seriously watching this show, I am mainly interested in following Kenya... I've heard about Nene and how popular she is with viewers but this Kenya is spicing up this show with her stupid embarrassing behavior... Keep it coming, I'm tuning in... PLUS all haters should face it that Kenya looks damn good for a woman of 40, or 40+, whatever.... Girl, Walter doesn't want to you, damn idiot he is though, cause you just might be settling.... But someone watching this show does want you, yeah girl, he's out there, and better calibre than Walter who can't deal with your heat... And at least Kenya not looking for deep pocket man, considering she really is of class even though she behaves NOT... Keep up the drama for me girl... pay those bills... It's true you fabulous! But can I check off stupid too.... Still love u, silly and fabulous!
Face it Kenya, Walter NEVER had any idea of marrying you. You are way TOO PUSHY!! All you talk about "everyday, all day" as Walter put it is MARRIAGE AND BABIES!! Did you ever notice that whenever you mentioned that subject he would cough, need a whole bottle of wine, etc? Come on you can't be that naive. Watching you on the airplane saying that maybe someone would be proposed to while in Anguilla, fingers crossed-IT WAS RIDICULOUS!! Please Bravo do not bring her back next season. She is a bit strange and I know that I am not the only person who feels that way. I'm glad Kim is gone because she was WAY TOO MATERIALISTIC and it was getting sickening!!
Walter didn't humiliate you! You humiliated yourself in pretending there was more to your relationship than was actually there. The man clearly had no intentions of having a long term relationship with you. His actions and words demonstrated that over and over. I can't believe you pretended to fix a romantic dinner for him (take out) and then said how hard you were working to "make it all work". Own it! You humiliated yourself.
I sure woulda prefered some Marlow over this Kenya Bravo. She just doesnt fit in whatsoever. I ALMOST MISS DESHAWN...
shaydoug I agree! I do miss DeShawn Snow and Lisa Wu.... As you said, even Marlo would have been a better fit!
I just got on board with Housewifes of Atlanta and I can not get enough of it. I think Kenya is full of herself. It seems that it has to be about her. She is very evasive when she is questioned about her behavior and then has the nerve to act out. If she is all that she thinks she is then should carry herself accordingly.
Episode 7 ..I think I like Ms Kenya better than all of them put together. She may be fakin it with Walter, but her spirit is real. She put Porscha's shallow fake self to rest, and calls it like it is. "Gone With The Wind Fabulous" is my new phrase.
hellomissy Kenya looks like a complete fool. No woman of class, or ANY 42 year-old woman for that matter, should carry themselves the way she does. It's absolutely pitiful and disgraceful!!!
That sad thing is I knew he had not intentions of throwing a ring on her finger from the first time he was with her on camera. He always tried to avoid the topic and gave her answers to pacify her. It's messed up but as women it is important we don't deny it when those red flags are slapping us in the face (esp in Kenya's case where it was repeatedly). We don't need a man to prove our worth, we need to KNOW out worth!
@erica8123 It is obvious you people in here are ignorant your selves! I don't think a wonan of Kenya's caliber need to listen to the likes of you. Most you can't read, spell, or write. Furthermore, many of you are judgmental, ignorant fools who know nothing about psychology! Kenya Moore can run circle around you! Every single one of you who's in here judging Kenya are not fit to kiss the ground she walks on... yes I said it! You're beneath her! Thank Bravo TV for blessing you with her presence in your living room each week! Kenya you do not need to listen to any of these hateful comments! You know you are fabulous! I didn't understand what you saw in Walter, he was never your equal! Now that you have seen him for who he truly is! Move on with grace like the queen you are! All the heaters trust me they can't get enough of you! Most of them wish they were you! Bravo keep it coming! I am Kenya Moore number one fan!!! She can do no wrong! GONE WITH WIND FABULOUS!
I think Kenya has problems. She's trying too hard and instead of getting a man she's chasing them away with her blunt inappropriate out burst. She's down right disrespectful. How can you propose to another woman (husband)man about choosing 2 friends. She wasn't playing, I seriously think she has a few loose screws the way she was acting on the trip. Why would Walter want her with her desperation and flirtatious ways. If you are trying to get a man let him do the work and want you instead of you begging for a ring. If I was Walter I would play her too, know man wants to be with a desperate woman.
Kenya has accomplished so much and walter knew the deal before signing up.
Porshia needs to sit her fake behind down because I remember when she was a stripper slash video hood girl in the atlanta scene.She is not so innocent,funny how a ball player can change you.LOL
@atlantawife2012. ITA. Loving Kenya. Don't like the flirting thing. But she certainly has brought some energy to the show. Porscha is so daffy and ridiculous. She has brought nothing to the show but ignorance and fake importance. Hope she doesn't return next season. I'm tired of having to fastforwad her scenes. I thought when Kim Ieft I wouldn't have to that any longer.
atlantawife2012 Porsha never said she was innocent, nor does she portray herself as a church mouse... However, when comparing the two (Porsha and Kenya) Porsha certainly has more class! She's not disgracing herself or the man she's in a relationship with.
Despite how abysmal you have acted since you've been on the show you still do not deserve to be treated that way. Women make mistakes all the time when it comes to men, so you aren't the first to be played, nor will you be the last. However, now that you know Walter was just being a crumb-snatcher do what real women do and be as successful as possible.
I know a lot of people didn't even know who Kenya Moore was, but I saw Trois years ago when she acted alongside Gary Dourdan, and I did see her in the cameo she had in Deliver us from Eva. I know she has her own production company and is a former Miss Black USA. That goes to show you that she doesn't need a man to have everything. These women need to stop being so needy like they have to have a man to validate who they are. Baby, know your own self-worth instead of just concerning yourself with your net-worth. Besides, he isn't even that fine anyway.Now, if he looked like Shemar Moore or Morris Chestnut maybe (just kidding). Anyway he looks old enough to be your father, and he was trying to ride your coat tails. I think he did you a favor Kenya, but you still need to stop being so desperate for marriage and kids because it's almost an obsession with you and that's scary.
i honetly want to know why is Kenya is even on the show she not even a house wifen if she keep acting the way she is then she never will. Don't no man want to see his woman messing with another man or all over him.
By the way Kenya... Apollo sex sucks!....lol. When Phaedra kisses him she has no idea she's eating me!...lmao
Darnell01 Your comment is so low class... and if you think that validates you, you are sorely mistaken.
Face it, Walter did not adore you and did not want a future with you. When a man loves you, he will do whatever it takes to create an environment where you feel loved, cherished, secure and protected.
Like many beautiful women you may be cursed with the practice of failing to develop cogent criteria for possible mates because men were constantly in pursuit of you. Now that you are ready to choose, you are inept because of a lack of experience. You now have a great opportunity (national TV) to present yourself as a woman of substance, known for her brains, humility (find some), humor, and good nature.
Don’t forget, Mr. Right is watching and he will make the decision whether or not to pursue based upon whether he thinks you are worth the effort. Maintain your worth by behaving in a manner that does not require apologies.
Their long distance relationship was perfect from his standpoint. She took to coming to Georgia without him even knowing she was coming. She read more into their relationship that their was from the beginning. He looked suprised and scared from the first meeting. He was having a better time keeping her a once in a while thing. She is too self absorbed to find anyone to fit in her life. Does Walter have money?
Is the Miss USA title the only thing you have going for you, becuase honestly, before this show, i had never heard of you. Seeing how desperate you are, you would scare off a normal man in the first 5 mins of conversation, so you might consider some counseling and try and be single for a while. i think you need to gather what ever dignity you have, although it's probably not much Ms. There's no shame in my game, and go home !
The only way there could be "no shame to my game" is if Walter was right and the whole thing was a set-up. Why not flirt with every attractive man in sight when you're still unattached and on the prowl...there's no shame in that.
Kenya, there's something wrong with you. I don't believe anything you have to say.
I would say to Kenya, It's not too late for you to get married, just believe in it and it will happen. However, there are some unappropriate attitudes that you definitely have to get rid of. No one is perfect, but remember your man may be among the viewers. So be conscient about your reputation. Wish you GOOD LUCK.
It would most likely help you to stop flirting with married men and going WAY beyond appropriate boundaries with them. Then this way the single men may believe that you'd like a serious committed relationship with ones who are available and not taken.
This is nothing new in "reality" tv. That's why we watch. Kenya is more authentic and naturally beautiful (and charismatic) than Kim Kardashian's fat-injected-behind-self pretending to be married to her last husband (who by the way, is taking her to court over a "fake marriage.") Let's give Kenya break and get real ourselves. She's got fire and that's why we watch.
Oh my goodness where do I start. #1. Who is going to put there hand up and admit that they believed this was a real relationship to begin with...I don't know maybe Porsha? It was very comical from the start. The Trador Joe bags with the fake dinner, yet another orphan story. Who in their right minds is insulted when mistaken for Miss America versus Miss USA but okay it's done let's move on. #2. Here's a lesson in celebrity 101 the minute you issue a statement you have just admitted guilt. #3. What radio station that considers itself legitimate gives Walter what's his name a platform to speak from? Really? #4. Decide Kenya Moore, you were famous as Miss USA, famous as the booty model, famous for being weave free, great but that fame died and went away and you were forgotten about. I know no one likes to hear that, but you did what you were supposed to do while waiting on your next time to shine, you stayed cute. So the question is do you want to be famous again cause fame fades or would you rather be infamous? Ask Theresa Giudice what she chose. #5. This just makes my issues valid. I have a real issue with these men getting too much camera time anyway. It's called the Real Housewives because you're entertaining us real housewives. Just like it was called soap operas when they were trying to sell us detergent. Erica Kane did not bake cookies or pretend like she did for a husband and she had about 8. #6. Now I thought you were sincere when you said you wanted a husband and kids and I know there was some truth when you said, "do you know how old I am" when talking with the fake boyfriend about arranging a fake marriage. If you do aspire to be a housewife and mom why is that a sign of desperation as if it is a bad thing. I know I wanted my husband and I was determined to get and keep him. 20 years and counting... #7. This is it because seven is one of my lucky numbers. Keep Kenya on the show and can we please remove this invisible threat of people getting kicked off the show. When the threat of someone going the way of the Zarins and Staubs hinders my viewership I have an issue with that. Keep the show authentic and get rid of whoever is leaking info about the show. If we're going to discuss EVERYTHING throughout the season then why am I tuning in for a 3 part reunion show...I'm just saying. PS. everything is still good TV keep up the good work.
Kenya was asked why she and Walter didn't get married. She replied because Walter is gay. How rude is that?? If Kenya would have kept her mouth shut Walter probably wouldn't had a platform or a voice. Of course, he's going to defend himself. Now she is humiliated?? Really!! This maybe the last season for her because she lied about having a boyfriend....she played herself. The sad part it wasn't even worth it..smh
I don't believe Kenya, I believe Walter! Kenya is an actress and it seems she flipped when NeNe saw through her. NeNe being an actress also she figured it out fast. Kenya needs to exit stage left and keep it moving right off the show!!!
