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!

With Love,

Claudia: NeNe Turned Up, Not Me

Claudia Jordan shares her thoughts on the tense moment with NeNe Leakes.

Bravotv.com: What did you think of Cynthia's acting in Kenya's pilot?
Claudia Jordan: I thought Cynthia did a great job and was very funny and believable. It was an over-the-top character, and Cynthia committed and gave 100%. I thought she came off really cute! I told her that she should continue pursuing a career in acting.

Bravotv.com: Was the vibe still positive between everyone at Phaedra's event?
CJ: Yes, the vibe was still good between all of us that went on the trip. I was pleasantly surprised that we were all able to be around each other, be civil, and greet each other and not be rude or nasty. I didn't know what our duties would be when I agreed to attend the event -- all I knew was that we made progress on the trip to the Philippines and there was no reason for me not to go and support. So when we arrived and were told we were just going to be in the kitchen making plates, I put on my apron and got to work.

Bravotv.com: What was going through your mind after the confrontation with NeNe?
CJ: I didn't feel I was out of line at all! I was not loud and no one heard me in the audience at the event. I kept a calm, cool tone. I was standing next to NeNe in the kitchen making plates, and I certainly wasn't going to ignore the woman for the entire time while we're supposed to be working together. So I started making small talk. And it started off fine, I asked how her health was and told her that it was too bad she couldn't make the trip because of her blood clots. Then I said we hadn't seen her since the Dr. Jeff session that she put together, and she started insulting me and Cynthia, while never once making eye contact or acknowledging Cynthia, which was very rude. Then she started talking at us, not to us, and raising her voice to the point where she could be heard in the other room. She turned up at the event, not me. So when she threw out the false statement that we had said very rude things about her (or something like that), I wanted to know what she was talking about, because it just wasn't true, and one thing I hate is being lied about. If you are going to throw that out there, you better have examples. I found it funny and ironic that this woman was standing there lying about me without taking any responsibility for anything that she has said about everyone else. My thing is this -- we all have been shady, but do not act like you are such a victim of everyone else's shade when you keep on doing it over and over again -- then you wonder why folks don't accept your apologies…


I started off saying hello, being kind, smiling, making eye contact, and attempting to work together. I thought there was nothing wrong with my tone. When NeNe made comments about "taking it to the streets," I was surprised. What has really transpired between us to get to this point? All I did was expect an answer to a question, and now someone wants to fight? Girl, bye! We are both over 40 and we will not be jeopardizing anyone's delicate hip bones with a street fight!
Although it was a step backwards with NeNe, I'm still happy with how everyone else at this point was still being cordial and doing their part to keep as much of the group on good terms as possible. When NeNe exited we finished the event in good spirits. I explained to Phaedra and Porsha what had happened between me and NeNe, they didn't hold it against me, we went back to serving the men at the event nice warm meals, and we laughed and took pictures together. So no one was mad that day. Just saying...

I just wanted to add that one of the benefits of being part of #RHOA has been making new friendships and doing business with other successful women. This weekend I was honored to work with Kandi Burruss on her Women's Empowerment MasterClass. She asked me to moderate, and I was happy to do it. The panel discussions were amazing, and it was such a positive and powerful event. Kandi truly is an example of a woman that empowers, employs, and uplifts other women, and I appreciate her for it! Good job!
