Kenya Moore

Kenya thinks Cynthia's past her prime when it comes to modeling.

on Nov 5, 20120

"Why does Kenya have security when no one knows who she is?" First of all, I wouldn't need personal security if Cynthia didn't recruit randoms via Craig's List or Twitter. Secondly, it's obvious Cynthia does not read, watch television, and has been under a rock when I exploded on the scene years ago. I made history being crowned the second black woman to win Miss USA and I was fifth place in The Miss Universe pageant. Let me refresh hers or anyone else’s sluggish memory…

If you don't know, you better ask somebody. I'm also that girl whose been on the covers of and modeled for over 30 magazines from Essence to Real Health to Maxim magazine. In fact, the very audition she held for the Jet Magazine Beauty of the Week, I was chosen as a Jet Beauty. I also have a Jet Magazine cover. Do you have a Jet Magazine cover, Cynthia? NO, you don't.  Additionally, I'm that girl who has had multiple endorsements including my very own Pantene hair commercial, print ads, cosmetic campaigns, as well as numerous fashion layouts. Yep me.  However, models usually retire around 30-years-old. Even though Cynthia is a beautiful woman, at 45, maybe Cynthia should retire her dusty old wigs and worn out makeup brushes that are just as worn out as her welcome mat from the modeling industry. 

Ms. Bailey also takes a shot at me by saying she "wouldn't be caught dead doing some of the magazines I've done."  Well guess what, Cynthia, if you were on the cover of any of the men's magazines I've appeared on the cover of, we’d all die, because we would be bored into a slow and painful death just by looking at you. In fact, I'm bored now just by thinking about it.

Now as a reminder to Miss Bailey, since my successful modeling career and crowning, I moved on to enjoy other accomplishments in my career, such as becoming a popular actor, producer, director, writer, author, and businesswoman. Maybe Cynthia should move on too. #Twirls Away

Isn't it obvious.  It's all about attention.  She wants, no - I'm sorry, NEEDS the attention in a desperate attempt to revive a somewhat mediocre career.

There is no question, you were rude and hurtful and even the JET magazine people were embarrassed by your behaviour. And your reasoning for having Personal Security - because you won a beauty pagent over 20 years ago is ridiculous - you looked like a fool. And your blog isn't any better - you act like you should be known by all in the history books like President Bill Clinton, all because you won a game for your looks !!!!

Oh Girl where do I begin?  First you are way too full of yourself, who remembers a second African American as Miss USA.  The first Vanessa Williams has and is all about class, of which you definitely lack.  Let me give you a bit of advice it isn't what Title you hold or have held that defines you.  You are defined my your character, morals and who you are as a person!!  Second a woman of class doesn't make demands on a man to marry them and at the same time flirt with every other woman's husband or boyfriend or other attractive men on the show and expect him to want to be with them.  All of which you have done and have failed and will continue to fail.  Be your self not the gutter rat that you are showing you self to be.  Take this from a wiser woman who has been married to the same man for over 30 years.

I just want to know WHAT movie career are you talking about? can you say major role LOL however, the funniest thing I've heard in a while is gone with the wind fabulous and when I need a laugh I twirl like I just stepped off the run way! too funny!!

Kenya, from a woman, wife, and mother. A classy woman over 40 as yourself, why would you act the way that you do on the show? You act as if being Miss USA calls for the world to bow down too you. You say that Vanessa Williams and youself have led the way for black woman.  The differences between you and Vanessa is that she gives back and she classy, smart, beautiful, wife, mother, smart business woman, as well as Miss USA, and leader to all woman. So until you get classy and respectful to woman shut the hell up. Please ladies vote this full of herself donkey off the show.

You are the phoniest on any of the Real Housewives Series. Your version of every situation so far is a lie, you try to make yourself look justified for being so rude and crazy. I and I'm sure many others have never heard of you. You're ugly outside and inside. And if someone as beautiful as Cynthia should retire you should never have started. You need a good Psychiatrist and a Dermatologist. You started that whole thing with Porsha & then twisted the whole thing totry to make Porsha look guilty but we all saw what happened. You have no creditability & you're too damn crazy and olddddddd to have a baby!

I'm all for constructive criticism, but you were not being constructive. You were so rude and disrespectful. As an American citizen, I am ashamed that you were chosen to represent our great country as Miss USA. Cynthia is beautiful and classy. The only magazines you modeled for are men's magazines, where you were chosen for your promiscuity, not your beauty. Famous actress? Really, because i've never seen you in one movie. I'm pretty sure being chosen for a role of a film you produce reflects upon your nepotism not talent.

As a black woman, I congratulate you on your success.  With that being said, it is unfortunate that a woman such as yourself which auditioned for modeling jobs, would speak to someone in that way.  YOU stated that some of those women came up to you and thank you for your criticism.  What about the ones that didn't?  As an educator, and a mom it does not take much to lower someone's self esteem.  Words are sometimes like swords, and your words truly did damage to some young ladies hopes and dreams.   How would you feel if someone spoke to your child in that tone in public?

You may be uber successful,  it is admirable, and congrats; but Cynthia has two things for which you crave on a daily basis: a child and a husband.  People who live in rented glass houses should not throw stones.

Your personality is exactly what the show need i enjoy watching you, but you should bring it down a notch the endless flirting and Ratchet behavior is not something people expect coming from a former Miss U.S.A im just saying, but your definitely interesting to watch.

Kenya, I see everyone seems to have the same opinion about you,  you are rude and you act like you are something wonderful, but your looks are gone, if you think you look like you just stepped off the stage, you are fooling yourself. And if you think pushing Walter to propose will get you a ring you're nuts. He is seeing a pushy, demanding woman that is only concerned about herself. I think you get less attractive to him every day. I hope he dumps you.Cynthia is the one that is Gone With The Wind fabulous.

Kenya people are giving you a bad rap because you are former Miss USA.  Stay away from immature instigating Portia who is riding on the coat tails of her late grandfather and her husband who looks older that you.  Hosea Williams did a few great things between his DUI's.  I was born and raised in Atlanta and he was getting them weekly.  You need to clean your own house before talking about someone else.  During the night cap, you were trying to move on but miss 269 days a year kept pushing the issue and ultimately pushed you buttons.  You reacted like most people would.  She is socially inept that your message was not to discuss it and ruin a great evening.  Earlier miss 269 days Portia tried to get Cynthia "on her side" high- schoolish.  And Cynthia said she was going to let it pass.  I don't agree with her dancing like she did in front of Walter or pushing Apollo.  Pushing Apollo wasn't so bad.  Apollo should get a bad rap for throwing Kenya in the water. LEAVE KENYA ALONE HATERS!

You really need to stop. Pathetic is an understatement to your fraud of a relationship or LACK there of with Walter, for a former Miss USA who is supposed to be well rounded, mature and stable and classy and sophisticated you are a joke and I don't know how you faked it past the judges back in '93. You are a disgrace to each crown holder after you. For you to sit and deny all the scheming and planning you did to fake a relationship and beg that man who is CLEARLY not interested in you, whom you BARELY even know, to lure him into your black widow web and try to force him to marry you and impregnate you is less than ghetto fabulous, it is desperate, thirsty and just plain PATHETIC-  jump off and you just grab a random guy and try to force him into becoming you fantasy cardboard cut out black Ken doll all for the sake of marriage? WOW... forget the commitment, love and respect, just any old man will do.. You gave yourself away with the millions of 'hints' at marriage and the overly exaggerated outburst at dinner before you went to the islands.The defensiveness with NeNe and Walter's evasiveness and dodging your wedding talk all throughout the trip. You really need to get off Cynthia's jock~ she is and always will be a better model and classier woman than you- not to mention more successful and much better personality. You are the classic version of a hater, low frequency, hood rat with fake diamonds on your tiara. How unbecoming of the former Miss USA Grow up and get a REAL life and stop acting like a fake barbie- you're washed up-- face it...

LMAO.. and you're not? You are in your 40's, honey... the only thing you have going for yourself is your AZZ..do you want me to call KING magazine for you?? P.S. you better stop pressing that B-frend of yours too hard, before you lose him (thirsty isn’t a good look) or is that desperate :P

LOL - first of all, you didn't make history honey.. the actual first black woman made history. I don't hear any one else going around claiming stardom for being the second.. that would be like the next Black president saying he made history when Obama is really the one who made history... im just saying I found that comment a little ridiculous, along with many other comments made  by this crazy lady. I guess you are trying to be like the old Ne-Ne...give it up b/c your worse and that makes it harder to relate to meaning you'll have slim pickings for fans darling!

All that you say you have done and you are still unknown to 99% of the population.  I think you need to get over yourself.  And to compare yourself, in any way, shape or form, to Michelle Obama is ridiculous.

Kenya,  you are definitely a beautiful woman.  But, you have forgotten along the way that beauty is inside out.  Your behavior and diva attitude is absolutely not attractive.  You claim you want to get married but do you really think a man will want to marry a woman as rude and classless as you?  Your behavior at Cynthia's model search was absolutely awful.  I can care less what you think of her, that is her company, the magazine is her client and you were asked to be there...not take it over and berate her staff. I have so much respect for Cynthia for trying to make a name for herself and starting a business on her own.  I am a small business owner myself and clearly grasp how hard it is to get started.  You embarrassed yourself and Cynthia during that episode.  Be courteous for God sake and give her a break.   I have NEVER heard of you before you got on this show so quit acting like you are celebrity.

Another thing, Kenya, you have no class, only ugly, ugly personality that shines thru over everything you say and do.

One more thing... stop saying the word my "FANS" Nobody outside of the nasty jackers who look at women in Hustler magazine even knows who you are.  And just because folks recall/remember you dont mean they are a "FAN" who the hell is a Fan for Beauty Pagent people??? They are forgotten about as soon as they turns the lights off in the room and the janitor locks the door.  Execpt Vanessa Williams nobody cares.  It wasnt the pagent that made her that was just the door... it was all the hard earned success that came after.  Time to wake up girl and be the Kenya I know you can be cause this is ridiculous Good Luck

Please, you only said that speech cause you realize how you looked to JET magazine. Instantly you could see it in your face when JET co signed on what Cynthia was saying.  Kenya please you WISH you could get the jobs and work that Cynthia still gets right now today.  I think she is who you set out to be years ago and it didnt happen for you... Any pagent beauty wants to become a big model... didnt happen for you sweetie let go.  I think Cynthia is a reminder of that for you and EVERYONE CAN SEE CLEARLY THAT YOU ARE JEALOUS OF HER.  In addition I think you are not only jealous of her accomplishments, but also her obvious BEAUTY.  Good thing Beauty Pagents dont allow you to speak much cause you damn sure wouldnt have won had you opened your mouth.  I was so happy for you when you won back then wow, what a disappointment to find out what kind of mean spirit was behind that face.  We all make mistakes, hope you really think about how you can make your attitude match your smile.

I came on here to see if all the other fans felt the same way about Kenya as I do. Yep. Kenya pay attention. Cynthia is HIGH Fashion, with the personality to match. You are LOW fashion, with the personality to match. Being rude to others only brings more criticism upon yourself boo boo.

As a woman from Detroit, around the same age. I have admired you for the past 20+ years. Whenever I saw you on adds or in movies etc. I felt a sense of pride. When I heard that you had been raised by an aunt, and to see you rise up in the face of that kind of situation. I can imagine, things have been tough. But to watch you attempt to make another sister look bad, on an obviously big day for her new business. (There is no excuse for the way you acted) There was a demon, you were all over he place. You showed no class, and I agree with Cynthia. I have seen some of your work, as I glanced at the magazine racks at the 7-11. KING mags, Mens mags. Why were you so harsh?. There is a way to tell someone something, in a loving way. Based on the comments below. The gloves are off. I am glad that you can dish it and take it. Now, take a step back, being a break out star, must be calculated a lot better than the method your using. Being nasty to the women on the show is one thing. But to act like a jerk to young black women who admire you, we get that from the establishement. Go pick on Kandi, see where that will get you. Your worth 1.5 mil, her worth is around 30 Mil. Go bully her. First your boyfriend got shot down by her, Now try to go toe to toe with her., She is younger, has more money etc, Go pick on someone who can defend themselves. Cynthia is basically like you getting her hustle on. I know you dont have much time, This is the last year of the show, ( I think) and your time is running out. Your 40+ dear, the stock is declining.

deep down kenya is hurting because she didn't have a bond with her mother, she was raised by her aunt but it's not the same as having that mother daughter bond. Kenya you need to give Cynthia a chance who knows you guys could be BFF's. And your man is a keeper he was honest about the Kandi situation he is with you now.

Okay I was gonna write something very descriptive about Ms. Kenya.  But, everyone of you guys on here HIT HOME!!  So.. I'll just add on.  Kenya needs to take a good look at herself in the mirror, and say, "Are you for real?"   A MESS!! Here is what I think of Kenya..!!!. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!  BOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! BOOOOOOO!!!!!

Kenya, I saw on the show yesterday that you interrupted Cynthia......again.....at her event. YOU ARE SO JEALOUS OF CYNTHIA. I think you want to get close to Nene and you feel Cynthia may be preventing you from doing so. I think the reason you don't do something on your own is because you have nothing on which to draw. You said you were Miss USA that was twenty years ago. Remember, you won it on something that you had very little to do with....your looks....those came from your parents. I googled you and you were on the cover of a few low-rated, men's, big booty magazines(a step above porn). Cynthia would never stoop to that level.

Let me just be the bearer of bad news, Kenya, no one knows who you are. All we know is you're rude, threatened by Cynthia's modeling career, jealous, and selfish. Oh, and that you obviously had a killer pageant coach to teach you to come across any other way. It is completely obvious this caddy behavior is who you really are, you can't decide you're a STAR if not one fan of the show agrees, and I guarantee after the premiere, no one does. Get over yourself.

Kenya - what a liar.  She said she had her security throw out somebody at The Bailey Agency - actually security did try until Cynthia told them that he worked there - so you're lying when you say somebody got thrown out.  It was also horribly rude of you to take the mic from Cynthia at her own event - I guess you didn't learn any manners.  Your aunt said it best - you are just narcissistic.

Kenya’s problem is Kenya, her insecurities are so clear, when you take every opportunity to shoot someone else down then you have the problem.  She has chosen Cynthia because she sees Cynthia as weak.  She needs to ask herself a few questions, maybe look deep into a good mirror and she might see why she feels the need to be the center of attention.  And while looking into that mirror take a look at that bad skin and focus on that.

Kenya it's clear that you are jealous of Cynthia. Secondly you really need to  humble yourself. You are a beautiful woman but you are just like any other beautiful black woman. You really dont have the look of a model and Cynthia does, and that's not to take anything away from your beauty. You are a very rude and disrespectful person. All I can say to you is that be careful of how you talk to people because everyone is not as classy as Cynthia.

Kenya, you are a washed up has been that has been added to the cast. Cut it out. Cynthia is a intelligent woman with class and grace and honey you can take a lesson from her. You came on the show thinking you would just walk all over Cynthia. Honey wise up. Cynthia is not a pushover and she can give what is given.

I know u souldn't put your hands on people, but sometimes people need a good old fashioning ass kicking. Cause u think u can say or do anything to people cause u feel u can and nothing is going to happen. And you Mrs. Kenya is that person who need to get your chin check for real. Stop showing out to get for career on track if it ain't haappen by now then it's not. So get it together.

From the two episodes I have seen you are an ego maniac always making sure everyone knows what you have done and what cover you have been on. You seem at least on the show to be a very vain hurtful person. Instead of being a professional with some class you said some ghetto unprofessional statements. Your attitude seems to be that you feel your @&%* does not stink and you are above everyone else. Your actions take away any thing that may have been attractive. As old as you are you will probably always be alone without someone much less children. Your excuse will be like everyone else that the producers just put drama in but it is what it is. As I mentioned on Cynthia's blog my husband saw the show with me and that you were not attractive in your close-ups.

Hold your horses Kenya....

 

I was  fix'in to tell you how rude you were to Cynthia, but looks like the other viewers already beat me to it... At any rate, I don't understand why you keep trying to upstage Cynthia at HER events... Are you jealous of her or something?

 

I'm looking forward to next weeks episode. From the looks of the previews, it seems that the new lady has never heard of you either. Maybe she should join the club.

@amiddlebrooks Kenya, it might be a a good if as a cast member, you should focus on writing your blogs and let the viewers write the comments. I could be wrong, but @amiddlebrooks sounds a a bit too much like Kenya and what she would have to say to defend her poor behavior towards Portiaband Cynthia. As in, "Thus protests too much".....

@Nicole3227 because she knows she could get her ass kicked is the reason she has he own security. No one knows or cares who Kenya is. She was Miss USA 20 years ago. She probably had a bodyguard until the next Miss USA was crowned.
