Cynthia Should Retire

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

If You Don't Know, You Better Ask Somebody!

I am excited for you all to get to know me. This is a new chapter in my life, and it is definitely a page-turner!

My family, friends, and true fans who know me and my heart know that I love beautiful, confident women and have always encouraged them to live their dreams. Historically speaking, my actions speak louder than any words.

With that said, most of the women were stunning and we couldn't pick just one. However, there were only a few that were inappropriately dressed to whom I offered sound advice and the truth.  It's simple -- you must look the part. It is completely offensive to see pubic hair at an audition (or as I said, "coochie crack and ass crack" at an audition) for a wholesome family magazine. I would be remiss not to point that out. Most took it as constructive and even waited to take photos with me after the casting and have kept in touch via Twitter. All I have and will ever try to do is HELP not HURT. So again, congratulations to all the women who showed courage just by showing up. Bravo!

"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

Kenya: I'm More Empathetic Toward Apollo

Kenya Moore weighs in on the drama between Phaedra and Apollo.

GROWING PAINS
Claudia has a new home, new job, new friendships that are developing, and a new life. That is a lot of stress for anyone to handle. Claudia has always been the life of the party and the girl who is friends with everyone. To see her going through grief upsets me, because I have personally witnessed her extending an olive branch to all of the women, even some who have made it their mission to disenfranchise me. It makes me sad to see that they are being punitive simply because I introduced her to the group and they are not willing to give her a chance. Like me, Claudia is a fighter and strong, but we all have our breaking point.

PON DE REPLAY
Cynthia was amazing! As an actor you have to be willing to take chances, make and commit to strong choices. This project is important to me, because it’s not only being completely financed by my company, but it is what I enjoy doing the most in my professional career. I love creating projects and producing. The great thing about Cynthia’s audition is that she came to play. I love it when an actor goes for broke and that she did!

DEAD MAN WALKING
Some people love to criticize me for having an opinion about Phaedra and Apollo or anyone else on the show at this point, as if somehow it is never any of my business. Despite the fact that this is a show where we discuss our issues, thoughts, and observations of one another. We may not agree, but I am entitled to and allowed to provide my input. We may not agree, however, no one and nothing is off limits when issues are put out there for public consumption.

Additionally, I’d like to point out that Phaedra and one other laughed, taunted, and tried to demean and humiliate me about Walter and my African Prince. In fact, Phaedra took pride in and reveled in the demise of my relationships, challenges having children, and my relationship with my mother. Some viewers have selective memory when it comes to my history on this show. They would like to conveniently forget when she said, “You can’t turn a whore into a housewife,” and that was PRIOR to Apollo accusing me of propositioning him.

With that said, I have empathy for those children and I am a forgiving person. In this case, I’m not judging her actions. I’m stating facts, history, and sharing my thoughts.

THE PHAEDRA FILES
It was very uncomfortable to watch them. No one wants to witness the demise of a marriage when there are children involved. Phaedra appeared unbothered, stoic, cold-hearted, and condescending. The truth is and remains that they each have said malicious and hurtful things to me to cause public humiliation and disrepute. However, I find myself more empathetic toward Apollo, because the difference between Phaedra and Apollo is that Apollo had the decency to apologize to me for what he had done to me. He showed contrition for his smear campaign and Phaedra has not. She is seemingly proud of what she did to me and has no remorse. Therefore, when I witnessed all the accusations about him threatening to burn the house down, having punched holes in the walls (which we did not see), and her mother stating she doesn’t want to come home and find "everybody dead," it seemed to me like another one of her smear campaigns, thereby making it easier to defend the cheating allegations coming down the pike.

#WHOISCHOCOLATE
What I see without any manipulation is a man who is hurting, angry, and afraid that he will lose his children because Phaedra refuses to bring them to see him in prison and who also believes his wife has moved on with another man before the bed even got cold. By his account, his wife, who promised to be with him until death do them part, really meant until "Chocolate" do them part.


#CELEBAPPRENTICE
We filmed the show over a year ago and it’s just now finally over! Congratulations to the lovely Leeza Gibbons on her win. It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. I received so much praise from people who actually preferred to watch me in my boss mode than on RHOA, understandably so. Although I didn’t win the title, as such, I won big because the kids of Detroit won $20,000! Despite the attempts to attack my character and integrity, I thank the fans who believed me and Donald Trump himself who stated he believed I had nothing to do with #phonegate. Thank you for showing your support and keeping me on top with respect to the ratings! Team Twirl has spoken and the world heard you loud and clear!

Love,

Kenya
