Addressing the Apollo Rumors

Kenya dishes on the sexting rumors.

A LONG GOODBYE

SEXTING APOLLO?

Despite the outlandish theatrics and wild accusations thrown at me during Reunion Part 3, I stand firm in my opinion that Apollo is a nice guy who happens to be in a bad situation.  We’ve heard him say verbatim he’s “married to a beast,” “has resentment” toward his wife, and “would like to get back to the way things used to be.”  Believe me, many others including myself have fallen prey to Phaedra’s heinous manipulations. Apollo and I had initially communicated via group text and emails when collaborating on the workout video. We were amiable to one another even after the deal fell through and remained cordial. Despite his desperate outburst, neither of us acted inappropriately.

It was just as shocking for me to hear him make accusations that I, in effect, propositioned him. So shocking that I had to laugh at just how contrived and rehearsed it was. Beyond a shadow of a doubt, I’m certain Apollo was coached by Phaedra. Hence why I showed my phone with all the texts to Andy to prove my innocence and offered to pass it around for full and transparent disclosure.  Andy verified that there was no sexual content to any of the texts. I feel sorry that Apollo’s wife is so sadistic that she will do anything to malign, embarrass, disenfranchise, and slander me because I beat her at her own game.

We have seen the extreme lows of how far Phaedra is willing to stoop by what she did to NeNe, me, Angela Stanton, and anyone else who dares to cross her.  She even went as far as to recruit my ex as a client and advised him to exploit himself by lying about the status of our relationship in staged radio interviews. The nuances of her statements give it away… “They called him”. How would she know that had she not been directly communication with him?  Phaedra will never be the smartest woman in the room if I’m also present. She’s obsessed with trying to hurt me but she will continue to lose that battle in perpetuity.

With her alleged illegal dealings and random and ridiculous business ventures, she is not only a liar, an embarrassment to her family, as well as the laughing stock of the law industry. Her vicious gratuitous retaliatory actions are never warranted. Are we all wrong? Judge for yourself. With that said, I wish Apollo all the best.

REAL MEN DON’T FIGHT WITH WOMEN

No real or decent man verbally attacks a woman. The truth is, Peter, Apollo, and Kordell have all shown unacceptable aggression and intimidation toward women. Only cowardly men raise their voices in anger, physically act aggressively, or angrily shout at and attack women. Real men stay out of their women’s business and they don’t engage in repugnant hostile actions or words toward a woman whether they know, like, or dislike her. I applaud Gregg and Todd for the classy and appropriate way they refrained from attacking me unlike the others to get camera time. The others are always looking for their moment, which is why they all bonded with my groupie ex. As badly as they all want to hold a peach, they never will. TO MY FELLOW HOUSEWIVES

NeNe: Thank you for your kindness and your open heart. You have had my back on and off screen and I appreciate you for all you have done to help me navigate this process and my changes in life. I most appreciate the girl talk and encouraging words you have given me regarding my love life. Those words came at a time I thought I would never find someone who would love me unconditionally. I’ll never forget those words.

Cynthia: You are the epitome of a beautiful woman equally as stunning as you are kind. You haven’t let the pressures of being in the public eye change you. I’m happy to call you a friend and hope that our relationship continues to grow. You inspire me.

Kandi: I have always been a fan and am so proud watching your life flourish. Thank you for staying neutral and true to yourself. You are a sweet, talented, successful, kind woman. You deserve to be happy. I think Todd is a wonderful man and can’t wait to see what is next for you in business and in life.

Kim: I never laughed so much when we met. You are funny, sweet, sexy, and real. I hate that we didn’t get a chance to bond during the season, but we are neighbors and I’ll be over soon to borrow some sugar! You crack me up.Porsha: Life is about growth. We can only grow if we are able to see our mistakes. Look to God and your family and true friends for support during your lowest times. It’s not about the destination but the journey. The journey is what makes life worth living. The journey is what makes boys into men and girls into women. I’m confident your life will change for the better. I wish you well. (And thank you for Gone With The Wind Fabulous!)

Phaedra: God brings people into your life for a reason. You are the reincarnation of my mother. Your actions and evil will toward me goes beyond any fight. You meant to destroy me with your planted blog stories, reckless false accusations, counsel to my ex, and sinister behavior in its lowest form. Yet, you have only made me stronger and wiser. Thank you for showing me who you really are.

Lawrence: You are the reason my life has changed for the better.  I’ve watched you grow into one of the most incredible people I have ever met. I know you beyond the heels, beyond the makeup and your persona. I’m proud to call you a friend but you are my family. I love your heart. and that is all that will ever matter to me.

My angels Saisha, Brandon Deshazer, Brandon Roberts, Chanda, Lauren, Lisa, Tracey, my family, and Velvet. You have kept me sane. Well… sane is relative LOL!

To the press: We’ve had a blast. Thank you for your support and continued coverage. Thank you Kelly and Michael, Anderson Cooper, HuffPost, TheYBF.com, etc… and especially Wendy Williams: I’ve always admired you for you intelligence, your bold self expression, your honesty and I appreciate you as strong black women. You championed for me before the show even aired and I thank you for that.And finally the viewers: I have lived my life my way. I will never apologize for being me. I love to laugh and I will never take myself too seriously. I thank you for your kind and unkind words, your love and your hate, your support and disdain, your likes and dislikes. Through it all you have been engaged and entertained and you have expressed yourself.

To my fans: You have made this season EPIC! Now here’s a twirl for you baby! Always remember who gave you life:

TWIRL!
I’M GONE WITH THE WIND FABULOUS!
We let the world know... DON’T COME FOR ME UNLESS I SEND FOR YOU!

Kenya: This Was My Season of Vindication

Kenya Moore opens up about her journey this season and gives an update on her pilot.

Life Twirls On
I love this title because it’s a testament to my life. This season has been my year of vindication. Thank God, because it was a long time coming. Some of my fans were so angry that I had been lied on for two years that they wanted blood. They and myself were angry and hurt that someone would physically attack me and never issue an apology for their actions, regardless of whether or not they felt justified. And who could forget the years of being called a whore a thousand different ways all in the name of Jesus?

Forgiveness
I’ve learned many lessons along the way and forgiveness is one. I have to admit I could not have done it on my own. I have my family to thank for that. I’m from Detroit and I was raised in survival mode from day one with a mother who vowed to “dog me for the rest of my life.” Therefore, I will always be a fighter. But my focus has shifted and I have too much to lose. I have realized I cannot make a person do the right thing, I cannot educate beyond one’s rudimentary limitations, and I cannot change anyone. However, what I can do is take responsibility for myself and sit back and let karma do the rest -- funny how that works.

My Sister’s Success
One of my favorite principles is you have to be as happy for another person’s success as you are for your own. I’m that girl who roots for all the girls to win. This isn’t me versus NeNe… One can’t deny that just six years ago no one knew who NeNe was and now she has had some acting success. I congratulate her as another woman who has worked my entire life in the entertainment industry and all of our accomplishments must be acknowledged and respected alike. There is room for us all -- not just one at a time. I refuse to pull someone down like a crab in a barrel; jealousy has never existed in my heart. With that said, it’s a lot easier to root for someone that is humble, gracious, and most of all thankful.

“As an artist, I’m sensitive about my sh--” –Erykah Badu

LOL! I’m no different. I single handedly wrote, executive produced, financed, created, directed, and starred in my independent television pilot. Although the viewers only saw a glimpse of what it really takes to produce a TV show, it’s no joke. My name was on the line as well as my financial investment. But if I am going to gamble, I’d bet on me every time!

All the girls and I were in a good place but I still felt vulnerable. It’s torture to expose yourself in that way, to allow people to experience and criticize your work. But as you know, everything is not for everybody. With that said, it is a comedy and I did what I set out to do and that was make people laugh and entertain them. They all seemed to really enjoy it, and I especially appreciated Kandi, Demetria, and Claudia’s enthusiasm and love they showed me during the screening.

As a producer, it’s most fulfilling is to be able to employ others and give opportunities to talented people who may not otherwise be afforded them. Over 50 people worked on this production, and I want to thank my cast and crew for their priceless contributions and my Co-Executive Producer, Brandon DeShazer, for always coming through for me. There was so much excitement on social media as #LifeTwirlsOn was trending, creating a demand to see the entire show! The viewers have spoken and we will be airing the pilot very soon! Stay tuned for an official announcement.

To Team Twirl:
I see you, I hear you, and I thank you for fighting my battles for me. A lot of people have followers, but I truly have loyal fans. You have my back and I couldn’t do this without you. There was so much new positivity for me this season that it is unchartered territory for me. Don’t worry, I’m still that fiery, funny, shady, crazy Kenya that will read you for filth while twirling on my 5” heels you all have come to love or hate. From Celebrity Apprentice to Millionaire Matchmaker and talk shows like Wendy Williams, you continue to show up and make my shows some of the highest rated ever. Love me or hate me, I appreciate the fact that you can’t stop watching me! I love and appreciate you all.

Now Twirl!
