“NO ONE PUTS BABY IN THE CORNER”

Being called old is the last dirty word you can call a woman. The fact is, if we are lucky we will all age graciously with wisdom, grace, and dignity. If we are blessed, life is about seeing our children grow and their children grow to live a long, happy life full of love. Life is precious. After seeing the senseless Connecticut massacre this week, it makes this sentiment all the more precious. Life is never promised to us. My heartfelt condolences go out to the families who lost their angels.

I’M GONE WITH THE WIND FABULOUS

When an insecure woman is jealous, immature, spiteful, and/or ignorant, they will always try to tear an accomplished, beautiful woman down in order to feel better about their own lack of success. However, one cannot rewrite history. My legacy is untouchable, and I’m most proud of my professional achievements and accomplishments I have been able to bequeath despite the odds.

With that said, there have been many women whom I admire, respect, and marvel at their inner strength and beauty from the past that have provided inspiration for me as a young girl studying history and the arts. Knowledge is truly power. Without these bold, brave trailblazers, there would be no past, present, or future for generations to come.

After watching the first episode of the new season of RHOA, it has made me question Kenya's statement on the last reunion show that she has a new relationship with another someone. Wonder how he feels about he obsession with "Walter" and Apollo. Perhaps she's so fabulous that it was too much for him or perhaps that relationship is a figment of her imagination. Usually, if you have a new love, you wouldn't spend so much time talking about another man. I am so happy Walter got away from the drama and hope to see more of him this season. I applaud NeNe for being a real lady and walking away from "gone with the wind fabulous" chick because she just is not worth your time. She seriously needs some counseling. I agree with Phaedra, she has some issues. Hopefully, Bravo will see fit to get this cra cra off the show after this season. It's really sad to see so done who says she is intelligent and educated belittle herself and embarrass herself pretty much every time she's on camera. I'll bet Walter's not sweating her one bit...her on the other hand she is obsessed. To try to imply his sexual preference is pathetic.......just he didn't want your a**. Doesn't mean that...just means he didn't want you! Walter's knew your game...and game always recognizes game. Be gone......gone with the wind, literally. You are a troubled woman.

I think you would be a much more attractive woman if you learned to control yourself and act like a lady.  You seem to think that you are the person on this show that has brought fame to the other ladies.  Shame on you.  You certainly did not win Miss Congeniality and would have never won Miss USA had you been on this show prior to the pageant and people knew the type of person you really are.  Take a break and quit patting yourself on the back.  You are not all that!

I can't blame you for blowing up at Porsha at that moment, because she did say some nasty things to you. Before the arguing begin that was the most calm and relaxed you have been on the show. The whole "non-factor" comment was so uncalled for, and she should have embraced the peaceful atmosphere and left it alone.

KENYA,

   THAT REALLY WAS NOT AN APOLOGY THAT YOU "GAVE" TO PORSHA AND THEN YOU SAID THAT SHE DID NOT APOLOGIZE TO YOU. HOW COULD SHE IF YOU WERE THE ONLY ONE WHO WAS ALLOWED TO SPEAK? COME ON NOW, PLAY FAIR!! GIVE A REAL, HEART-FELT APOLOGY, NOT SOMETHING FAKE!

Kenya,

Nothing is unforgivable. You can remember it, be cordial, and feed that person from a long handled spoon.  I believe most young people remember you more so than anyone my father's age (My father attended high school with MLK)...trust me...everyone should know you if they know pageants and history. When Portia had lunch with you, she should have done her research. Miss USA and Miss America are different pageants. I've known that since age four.

Kenya is going to scare any man away. Using her past all the time when someone just voices their opinion, she believes is talking to her aggressive thats going to be a problem. She seems always rude and very fony . If you see she got into it with the youngest i believe of the cast. I believe Kenya is jealous of Porcha and what she has, so what you think shes living off her grandfathers legacy, so ... You most likely would of too Kenya. I say you can continue to be fabulous and 40 plus. But acting as you do , no man is going to want you. Maybe its not in the cards for you to be married or have a child. WHY NOT BE HAPPY TRYING TO FIND SOMEONE TO LOVE YOU FOR YOU AND YOUR FAULTS. If your jealous , its a part of nature, but dont treat someone like crap, cause of what happen to you. YOU NEVER KNOW YOUR MR RIGHT COULD BE WATCHING THE SHOW...

Kenya is nothing but fabulously coo coo and Walter needs to run as fast as he can. There are two many single women in Atlanta who isn't nothing like fabulously coo coo Kenya......

Kenya, being forty-something, I definitely agree that there are certain comments Porsha made were inappropriate and provoking. However, I think you present as delusional in many areas. I think your behavior at Cynthia's agency, your attitude at Porsha's event was nasty and your belief that Walter wants to marry you is unrealistic. I never heard him actually say it's going to happen (granted it may not have been on camera) and his actions and responses EVERYTIME you brought it up was to drink, grunt or say nothing. Desperation on a forty year old woman is NOT attractive; and it will NOT get you a ring! It is smart to know that a real man will not be pressured into anything. Love GOD first, find yourself in him, be secure and complete in yourself and allow the man to FIND (his wife) you! But the main thing is let him marry you because he loves you. If you have to beg...he is NOT the one!

Where the hell do you come off in treating people the way you do.

So you're a one time winner of Miss America or Miss USA, whatever the title, same crap different pot!!! What the hell difference does it make???? it's not you won the Nobel Peace Prize and they confused it with winning Miss Congeniality??/

Get over yourself already, please!!! It's time for you to settle down, find a man that will actually marry you, but please, whatever you do - do not breed.  The world has enough of your psycho to deal with for now.

I'm sorry Kenya but you could be so much more the role model you spend so much time claiming to be.  Yes, it is easy to get heated in the face of what one perceives as insulting behavior but in the end no one is responsible for your behavior but you.

 

Asking someone how they felt about a situation and then calling them a b**tch as they tell you isn't "classy, sophisticated or pedigreed".  Porsha's statements were also insulting I'll grant but you opened the door and came out swinging to incite her.

i feel sorry for you Kenya you come off very childish i really think this show was not for you it has really changed my opinion of you and makes it hard to watch the show you are nerve racking and kinda sad bless your heart you really need to check yourself and be more of a lady

Ms. Kenya, I don't think the way you acted was inappropriate. I do believe you were prevoaked clearly as seen in the show. you were trying to let it go but she seemed to want to continue on bring up something that was clearly inappropriate for the moment she should have pulled you to the side and told you how she felt. now I have heard in church when communicating with others you have to listen and then respond. so honestly you did good but you never no matter what allow anyone to take you out of your comfort zone/cool zone. now you were very disrespectful when it came to Cynthia modeling agency. I am happy to see that you too made up and are friends. Walter isn't even all that cute and he was never sure about what he wanted from the beginning I felt like he was running game. you never lose your street smarts. back to porsha that looks like a toyota she would dress like a porsha if she wasn't married to a football player. she would be broke on her but if it wasn't for her marriage. the rest of you have and are established/ing growing empires. she is a little girl trying to play with college students. but big ups to you.

You are trash you won the title 20 years ago and ok you won it move on. You try to be more than what you are and you are not it. You used to be beautiful and now you are just an old woman trying to be young. Then chasing a man if you were marraige material then you would be married by now but your crazy so thats why your not. Walter is not into you but you keep begging him to marry you so what you can spend his money No woman should beg a man to marry. You need to look at yourself and fix whats wrong with you. And please try to act like a mature woman and not a ghetto girl. Who would want a wife that is ghetto and rude and has a mouth. You wouldn't know how to be a wife. You flaunt your boobs because that is what you think is your best asset. And then you are a BIG flirt, a woman who wants to be married and who are actually ready to be a wife don't go around flirting with other womens husbands acting like that. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Kenya,

    I don't like your horrible (not "harmless") flirting, chasing Walter, and your behavior when Porsha called you "Miss America" was ungracious, but I am with you on the Porsha thing, especially since you apologized.  (But, you should not have insisted Porsha apologize, if you really meant yours.)   

    Porsha was ungracious when she retaliated when you were offended by her using the wrong title.  She should have apologized and, since she was hosting, she should have made you feel comfortable.  It was her error.  Seriously, could you imagine Jackie Kennedy responding so discourteously.  

    Also, by the way she acted with the ladies by discussing the "mis-title" night, when you clearly tried to quash the conversation, she was obviously at fault.  SHE brought more disrespect to her grandfather's work than you did.  

    She definitely hit below the belt by making those rude remarks about your age, and she was a little coward when she did nothing when you called her a "B" again.  Ha!  (I think she is threatened by you, and I think she intentionally called you out of your title and continued mentioning your age to try to discredit you and your accomplishments.) 

    She is fortunate, because some people would have beat her down!   I don't like how she pretends that she is so ladylike and innocent, with all that filth spewing from HER mouth.

    Give me a break.  

    Just avoid her.  Keep your hands off of other women's men, and be beautiful!

Kenya, you are brilliant and beautiful. Ignore small time haters like that football stars wife and know that neenee is a passive aggressive troublemaker. Its pretty clear that football stars wife was layin for a fight and has self esteem issues.

Kenya -

 

I usually don't post on reality blogs but I HAD to in this case. I think there are some things you aren't taking into consideration and, therefore, you have developed this reputation that is less than pleasing. So, in an effort to help out a sister, I hope you take some time and ponder these reflections from a viewer's standpoint:

 

1. NeNe is not your friend (at least it isn't coming off that way at this point in the show). Learn to recognize the difference between someone being "friendly" and someone who is a true friend. Frankly, you haven't known NeNe long enough for you to call her a friend yet. Rest assured the other ladies on the show are evaluating you and your true intentions --- so before you start handing out labels I'd take the time to evaluate them and their true intentions as well.

 

2. Chasing a man is like chasing the wind; meaning: you will not be successful chasing something that can't be captured. You are old enough to realize you can't chase and catch a man anymore than you can love. True love is an emotion that blossoms organically. That's the problem with marriage today .... people try to take and fake something that isn't theirs from the beginning.

 

3. People judge you by your actions, not by your words. You come off selfish, whoreish, and bi-polar because those are the actions you display. Men will encourage you to use your GOD-given blessings to entertain, amuse and arouse them. Afterward, they will treat you like the trash you turned into and toss you aside without a second thought. Here's the thing: if you truly believe the post you wrote above your behavior would change because you wouldn't need to chase men who obviously don't want you and you wouldn't need to flirt with every penis in sight. Maybe its because you're used to being on display .... but trust me, you get more sparkle and shine exuding confidence and sex appeal on the low. There is no need to force it. If it is truly there, it will present itself naturally and this is what will make you attractive to the right man.

 

4. Your behavior towards Cynthia is unnecessary, disrespectful and proves you are nowhere close to the dimensions of your post. You talk about uplifting other women, but when you were at Cynthia's agency during the Jet Beauty of the Week auditions you very loudly and rudely judged these young ladies. Then, you attempted to take over --- not a good look. Now, I will admit Porcha has some growing to do but was it really necessary to turn your nose up when she referred to you as Miss America instead of Miss Universe??? Here's some advice: if you are sensitive to the whole pageant accomplishment (which happened years and years ago) find another bell to ring. You act like the pageant is the only accomplishment you are proud of (mmmmm ..... I may have hit on something here).

 

I could go on but will not in the essence of time. I hope you review the series this season and reflect upon the role you played in the way you sold yourself on national television.

Kenya, your behavior on the show is very atrocious and disrespectful. When Cynthia was trying to explain to you,  the behavior you displayed at the Bailey /Jet Magazine was wrong.

Falling out all over the Beach was not necessary.  Those girls you assaulted at the auditions you probably damaged.  You are no where near the caliber of Vanessa Williams 1983  or Stewart holding a Title. I know and remember when you won your title. You  have become very bitter and nasty. Makes your  Title a disappointment!

Bravo what where you thinking putting Kenya on the show? She is a disaster! She wonders why he doesn't want to marry her...he don't even like you honey! He's gonna be gone with the wind alright, and I don't blame him.  You are so desperate! Get off of her high horse!

Kenya your blog this week was beautifully written, Im inclined to believe you didnt write this but then again you did graduate from college & writing could have been your strong point even if it is farrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr from the truth. 

 

I get you feel your biological clock is ticking & you may feel a little pressure from yourself yet there is no need to force a relationship then marriage. Im with NE NE something was off about your relationship. It didnt seem real. Ill just keep it real. Walter didnt give a fudge about nothng  you were talking about all the way down to his expression when you was jigglin & shakin yo behind all on Peters paynus. When you were fliting with the guy all in Walter's face again he didnt show not one care or concern for you. He seemed like he was just there for the trip & what ever sexcapades you would play with him. 

 

Wendy Williams exposed you on her show. Well at least she played audio of Walter speaking to a radio station in which he admitted you asked him to pretend to be your man. In which that explains why Walter wasnt interested in you. He was there for his 5 minutes of fame encouraged by his friends. 

 

You probably could have had a great story line but you came in trying to be the star of the show. Yes that is what your antics were all about. Im in agreement with Wendy Williams I dont believe anything you have said. I dont believe that beautiful woman is your aunt, Nor those other ppl are your family members. Your credibility is shot. You have presented yourself to the world as Cray Cray to the 10 power. You thought this show would make you relevant again because you know many ppl dont follow Ms. USA like they do Ms America. No matter what your crown is or was you have disgraced pagent industry. I want you to soul search you have a story to tell but you should present it in a much better manner than you have. Remember Your husband will find you. You will not have to beg for a ring.

Ms. Moore,  you are fabulous.  A man and a baby cannot make you better.  First of all, never, ever chase after, beg, etc., for a man's affection/attention/love.  "Be careful of what you ask/wish for, you MIGHT get it."  If you really are only 45, isn't that a risky age to have your first child.  Why not adopt?  You seem to have a lot of love to give.  Give it to a helpless child(ren).  There is nothing like the endless love of a mother and child.

Kenya is living in the past.....Gone With he Wind was ages ago. She comes across as a mean self centered person, and she appears to pushy and too hungry to get the (a) man....back off and chill. From everything I have seen so far, you are not what Walter is looking for..... She is really not bringing any class to the show....down, down, down Atlanta.

Kenya Moore is someone that I grew up idolizing. I always thought that she was the definition of class and beauty. I think that Kenya played herself on this show. She is acting so ignorant and crazy and that "relationship" with Walter's ugly behind is just sad to watch. Its so obvious that he is there for whatever reasons, but it has nothing to do with loving Kenya. She should have just come to the show as a fabulous, single cougar, with a decent career. She could have made this show a platform to work in her favor. She still looks good, she could have been inspirational to those forty plus women out there. Kenya, honey, get it together. I still love you though.

There is no denying your beauty, however I have to question what exactly is going on in that pretty little head of yours. Your the perfect example of "looks aint everything". Your pretty, but your also lacking something significant...I'll let you determine exactly what that is SMH

I loved your blog.  Unfortunately, how you view and explain yourself and your actions is very diffent than what you present to the world.  You certainly haven't come across as humble or nice.  You seemed to be looking for a fight with Portia from the moment you arrived at the airport and chose to ignore her instead of being friendly.  You definitely were looking for confrontation and need to be the center of attention.  You are like the little kid that would rather have negative attention than no attention at all.

Kenya, I love your imperfections and realness. I have a master's degree, and trust me - I can pull ghetto and crazy out of my back pocket for people like Porsha. You'll find the love you desire, just chill out. My sister got married at 43, and had a baby at 44. Stay hopeful - it will happen for you.

I don't agree, Kenya started that entire argument! If I can remember correctly she blew Porsha off and that is no way to treat any one! Nene asked Porsha what happened and she has a right to voice her opinion! Kenya does it all the time and she is very opinionated and nasty! Why should people do what she won't do? Because she doesn't want to talk about it at that time??? I don't feel sorry for Kenya she came into the show thinking she was all of that! Look at the way she acted at Cynthia's agency! She was nasty and very degrading to the people vying for the Jet beauty! If Kenya can not take it don't dish it!!! Did you forget how she acter at Nene's party Cynthia gave?? She called it a CLOWN show! Please!!!!! Kenya got what she deserved!!!!

anette@36

Very true, Mr. Right could be watching the show...When Nene said she thought you guys were not a real couple, I thought so rude....but now, it seems there's some truth to it.  Walter was not fooling me. He reminds me of someone i was married to for 18 years.

Stop hatin' on Kenya. Are you perfect?

I totally disagree;  when Nene asked what really happened while in Anguilla, the mature and classy Kenya was thinking let's not spoil a nice evening with negativity.  She wanted to keep that can of worms closed.  Portia opened her mouth and started talking about the old negative situation.  Just like her husband told her, "you always startin' something."  And Portia, you've seen the show by now.  You told Kenya I'm going to have to ask you to leave. LOL, she was waiting for a ride to leave.  Portia thought she was kicking Kenya out.  She is lucky Kenya was still on the curb when she got there.

 @datruthruth Nicely -- and kindly -- said. I've hesitated to "talk" to Kenya because, though she behaves horribly, I didn't want to add to her life's load. My deepest feeling for her is sadness. I hope she reads and absorbs your constructive words.

 @DebraDenise There's no need for Walter to run from something that he isn't into anyway. He is an opportunistic brother. Why come on a popular reality tv show just to treat Kenya like she is a bug crawling on his food? She's dumb as hell for wanting him and he looks stupid for playing games. I mean dang can we all grow up people?
