WHEN YOU CATCH A SMALL FISH THROW IT BACK IN THE WATER
Walter said he loves me and he wouldn’t be there if he didn’t. Yet his body language, his nonchalant and often cold tone, and his lack of affection toward me said loud and clear: I DON’T WANT TO MARRY YOU. So why lead me on? Why waste my time? Why humiliate me in front of the world? I was so focused on making the relationship work that I lost the one important counsel that I always give to other women: Look to a man’s actions and not his words. I am embarrassed but I hope that all women can learn from the mistakes I’ve made in love.
I appreciate all of you who have taken the time to encourage me to move on and find genuine love. I’m actually excited to be single again, because I’d rather be alone than be with someone who treats me poorly. I just need to make better choices with whom I allow in my life. Even though the relationship didn’t work out, it was a blessing in disguise. God has a better plan for me, one that I could never have seen for myself. I have faith and trust in Him that the right man will find me.
Kenya didn’t see warning signs with Walter because of her own immaturity and ignorance. She is so self centered she can only see after the fact that someone is not following her lead. She assumed Walter would be grateful and knocked out by who she was that he would just fall in line like the bachelor on a bride hunt and she was the only contestant he would recognize. If you watch carefully every singe negative incident she has with others occurs at the point in time when she doesn’t feel like the ABSOLUTE CENTER of whatever is going on.
This is a perfect example of the sort of relationship that is created when women don't pay attention to the "he's just not that into you" guide. Walter seems like such a cold, douchebag. I hope he never appears on the show again. It's a heart-breaking experience to invest all your energy in somebody who it is a constant uphill battle to get any affection or real, genuine heartfelt love from. Better to cut your losses. Seems like Kenya is a lot happier now for it. Good riddance indeed! Walter, you don't desere a good woman, you deserve to be alone. Your attitude towards women really sucks.
I feel bravo should pull Walter from this show. He knew exactly what was going on and he led kenya on.. At any given time he could have told kenya he was not interested in marriage..he is a camera whore wear his work shirts to promote his business. Please keep WALTER off of RHOA.
Crsteena777 No he didn't lead Kenya on. Kenya saw and heard what she wanted to hear. He knew something was wrong with her at their first dinner and she asked if he dated/knew any of the ladies. Walter stated Kandi and this crazy witch storms off and go cry in the restroom. Then returns to the table as if nothing ever happens - Crazy anyone!!
As I watch you on the Real housewives, I will say that you have some serious issues. You ae in my opionion a COMPLETE embrassment to any pageanty system. To be walking around begging a man, that is totally not interest to marry you,WOW. Where do they do that, my bag you are MISS USA. What a sad person you are. I totally agree with Cali-HWfan
Can't wait for the Stallion Video. Their are a lot of women built like you. They love to hate you, don't they? When I keep seeing these polls,all I can do is smile because, you are the it girl and they can't stand it. lol Stay humble, stay true to yourself..
Hello Kenya, not only are you gorgeous, but girl, please bring-it down a notch or two. It's one thing to know your extremely attractive, but to throw-it around like its no ones business is a whole lotta obnoxious. And all that flirting, tsk, tsk, and check that baggage-in also. Your to classy for that. Some humble pie does wonders for one's soul and makes for much more persons inner beauty to shine.
and btw: I'm glad you finally woke-up to dead beat Walter. Watching you chase that "thinking he's all that" was agony.....!!! Gee's' no woman should ever chase a man, especially when clearly the dude was limp wrist-ed, and wobbly legged. Playin you for a fool and camera time, Yeah' that was he's MO, saw-it from the get go. Womanizers never change and clearly Walter was out of his league.
And btw: Kenya-- long distance relationship can either be good or bad, and as soon as you "got real", and moved closer to be with him, he "CAVED"............"lol" don't let the door hit' Cha, where the good Lord split' Ya Walter.......buh,bye!
Hmmm, I like Phaedra and I hope this video thing between you two-- doesn't erupt into fire storm Kenya? Not cool about the donkey booty video-- just sayin.
and as for Ms. Porsha-- she's got nothing on you, 40 is not old, and for that young twit to keep throwing your age in your face-- lol, she only wishes she had your looks. Nuff said on that issue, which is really her's not your's.
Keeping it real, love' Ya from Cali~
Kenya Moore you are making me not to like Phaedra. :( :(
I was Phaedra fun, but now I have to be team Phaedra or team Kenya now. For some crazy reasons I star to like you more. How are you going to fight against all that crazy ladies?
Twirl, and twirl. Fabulous.
Ok is it me? The title of the blog is Kenya explains how she overlooked the warning signs from Walter....yet there isn't one thing about it in the whole blog...
She has issues! Ask her something and she never answers it but instead goes all around subjects that have nothing to do with anything! Counseling sounds like a thought!
Kenya you run alot of game. Walter should have left you. He didn't even tell you he asked your cousin out years ago. Also, now you coming out with a booty video, how fake. That takes the cake. You are officially the most fake person that has ever been on this show. At first it was Nene. However, Nene humbled herself over the past few years. Kudos Nene.
You still will remain fake and trying to become relevant any chance you get.
You were absolutely desparate to get Walter to propose and then again when you attempted to force your production deal on Phaedra. You were so unprofessional, misleading, and extremely emotional by calling this a friend deal with someoe you just met and not realizing that all business deals have to be dealt withup front to secure the compensation and expectiosns for each party. I find it really hard to believe you are the succesful business woman you profess to be.
If you research the costs, it takes about $18,000 to produce a fitness video so Todd was correct that it could be done for a quarter of the amount that Kenya was asking for. I watched the episode about three times and Phaedra did not say she would not pay Kenya. What was at issue was the back end deal which Phaedra was within her right to deny. This is Phaedra and Apollo's project. Kenya deserves a fee not profits. They only wanted and needed Kenya for the production. If you add in fees for Kenya and Cynthia it still would not equate to $100,000. I find it difficult to understand how others find Phaedra at fault!
So why didn't Todd produce the fitness video for Phaedra? She probably dd not want to pay him either.
Purple86If you've been watching the show and WWHL Todd really DID NOT WANT TO BE INVOLVED WITH RHOA. He did the bare minimum for Kandi's sake. He obviously did not want to be involved in the drama. Did you not see Kenya CONFRONT him at his own suprise BIRTHDAY PARTY? have a seat
@jde418 Perfectly stated and correct on the facts, it certainly wasn't Pheadra at fair and anyone with business sense would know that! Thank u for setting all these pro Kenya straight!!!
LET'S FACE IT, IF ANYONE SHOULD DO A WORKOUT VIDEO IT SHOULD BE YOU MS KENYA AND NOT PHAEDRA. YOU HAVE A VERY NICE KILLING BODY FOR YOUR AGE. AND YOUR ''DERRIERE'', WOW, TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE. HOW DID YOU GET IT THAT FIRM AND TONED? CERTAINLY DID'NT GET THAT BODY FROM GENETICS BUT, THROUGH HARD WORK IN THE GYM. YOU ACTUALLY WORKOUT AND IT IS MORE MOTIVATING TO BUY YOUR VIDEO THAN THAT OF PHAEDRAS. YOU GO GIRL! I CAN'T WAIT TO BUY YOUR DVD!!!!!!
Kenya is a go getter, she see something, want it and goes after it with vengence.
Gotta love her.
Go do your own thing and leave donkey bootie video behind. If you copy cat them you look like a sleeze ball! Tone down the I'm so fab thingy, it only makes you look insecure, I'm so sick of it. Walter was not into you, everyone saw that except you. You looked stupid carrying on chasing him, pressuring him. Did he ever bring up marriage, without you starting the conversation? I doubt it! Girl you need to make major changes in your life, quit being such a drama queen and come on back down to earth where you belong.
Hey Kenya, love you for keeping it real. No one works for free. Business is just that, business!
Too often, [social] friendships tend to think friends should do busisness with them for free. Unless that is dealt with up front, too often, friends think that it is a given. It appears that Pahedra was caught up in that thinking.
She was not asked to work for free. She was going to be paid A FEE. Just like if you hire a chef for a dinner party you pay him for that evening that meal, but you are not contractually required to pay him for the rest of your life. Kenya wanted to be made a PARTNER!!! All they wanted was quotes and her capability to PRODUCE. She then took it upon herself to NAME DROP PHAEDRA'S NAME ((which she admitted to in the episode)) AROUND TOWN TO GET THE DISTRIBUTION DEAL!! NO ONE ASKED KENYA OR WANTED HER TO DO THAT!!!!
Well, Walter had cold feet before their Caribbean trip. But after her bending over and rubbing her butt all in (can't remember with husband) whomever's crotch, she clearly disrespected him right in his face. And clearly flirting with Phaedra's husband, Walter's cold-feet quickly slipped into the Ice Age.
Thank God you're on the show! Because the RHOATL was beginning to get really boring for me. Even Nene is just lame, same sh*t, new season, she's still a hypocrite saying that the ladies are crazy and aren't acting right when I remember her being a mess, yelling, screaming and cursing everyone out through seasons 1-4. I miss Sheree because she had the best one liners, and even Marlo's crazy self brought something last season. All was lost until Miss Kenya Moore came! I find you entertaining, interesting and fun! You may be a little crazy, but still good in my book. Stay fun and if these girls can't handle you, I would so love for you to get your own spin off show "Gone with the wind Fabulous with Miss Kenya Moore!" This needs to happen! By the way, you need to come to NYC and perform your song, people here would go crazy, especially had a big gay club! GO KENYA!!!
That is a really truly sleazy thing for you to do, steal their idea after your ridiculous demands were not met. And STOP LYING!!! She never wanted you to do anything for free, they had every intention of paying you up front. They didn't see why needed a percentage of all sales forever.
I cannot stand WALTER!!!!!! what a total looser he is and rude and ridiculous!~ He should be thrilled to have Kenya even speak to him... I really wanted to slap his face when you were fishing with him. Please be done with that fool!
killbill why is walter the bad guy again? did you see the way she completely carried him in anguilla? she was rude, disrespectful and he just sat there and took it... he played his role until she went too far... why is he the bad guy??
Walter is the bad guy again because he does not want to take responsibilty for his part in the scam that both of them may or may not have entered into. He wants to blame Kenya and the people around him telling him to "go after his 15minutes of fame". However, Walter is a full grown man that knows the difference between right and wrong. Yes, Kenya is a handful and tends to do things the wrong way. But, she at least sticks to her plan like a soldier and does not punk out like Walter.
I agree, my man would have left me in Anguilla by myself if I disrespected him in front of so many of our friends. She drove me crazy with all the marriage talk and we didn't see ALL of their conversations
I felt bad for Walter!
Kenya, Pahedra screwed you over. I'm a show runner in LA, and how you handled all of that "donkey" business was straight up. Lawyers don't come in till the silent nod is finished, usually on golf courses. She screwed you over once she knew the distribution was secured. Wow.
BS!! Production and distribution deals can be very complicated and ususally those nods you're talking about means that their lawyers negotiate the terms and compenation schedules. If thats the way you do business then you're a fool
louise123 Lawyers come in when you want them to. Do you recall Kenya presenting a distribution contract to Phaedra? Do you recall seeing Phaedra sign a distribution deal? Do you recall Phaedra signing anything with Kenya?What Kenya was asking for, may have very well been "standard" for the things she normally does, but this was a WORKOUT VIDEO! And it's their first one at that. Few cameras, lighting, few other casts, and editting...BAM! That's it!
So this is what you meant that people will understand about Walter in the end because your cousin implied first he is a womanizer and then gay. So let me get this straight , he is a womanizing gay man. Good job wrapping up that storyline, sure Walter is glad you cleared that up for the viewers.
Hey Kenya - I am so happy to see you have so much positive feed back. I think its refreshing to see such a inelegant, STRONG woman who doesn't take any crap. Walter was such a idiot, and I hated every minute watching him think he was better than you. If he can't appreciate a woman that has brains, and knows how to have fun - His loss. I'm sorry, but I am glad it didn't work out for you, he was all wrong. You need a strong man, one that isn't afraid to get his feet wet, and his hands dirty - I could tell when he wouldn't get your fishing hook out of the weeds, you were done. That would turn me off, nobody wants a girly man. LOL Keep doing what your doing and the right man will come - I know it - Good luck I never blog but I had to after dum dum tried to get something for nothing - And when Apollo said to her "What about your friendship?" and she said "We haven't been friends for that long" Showed her true colors - I wouldn't trust her, no loyalty and would sell you down the river - good riddance - I think it would have been a disaster anyway - Keep smiling it makes the haters mad!
I think you need to grow up! I am not in to hurting peoples feelings and i ccan promise you I have many faults, however, you are a fake. You need to learn who really had your back and then hold on to them becuase aall your birds are flying as far from you. Just pray and hope that God will help you to mature, even at 40.
I know he needs to help me too
Lucky Walter. He really dodged a bullet. What a conniving shrew Kenya is. It's all about her.
OMG at least she speaks well. That is totally Detroit. They are very well versed. The others drive me nutz on the show ..how they speak.
Kenya, even though you come off as over the top sometimes I like you. People just dont understand how hard it is to win the title of Ms. USA. I think the ladies really need to do their research instead of acting as if that task was so easy to accomplish. On another note, Walter is an a---hole that did not deserve your attention...Girl please he would never survive in NY, he's nothing to brag about...You deserve better!
beautifulelsie Kenya used Walter. how does he become the a..hole when her plan of deceit fails. im confused by all the Walter haters... After her antics in Anguilla would you want to marry of spend time with her.?? be for real to disrespected him horribly on that trip....
beautifulelsie YES! She had to win Miss Detroit and Miss Michigan to become Miss USA, and even came in as 4th runner up in Miss Universe her year! I would like to see any of these haters do that. That's not an easy or small feat, especially as a black woman. People here should be proud! She's done something for herself since then and it's been 20 years! She still looks amazing and for an older woman still has a great sense of humor about herself and a fun attitude. Kenya is hater proof, because you know you need really thick skin to survive and go far in the pageant circuit. So hate on haters, you're still not GONE WITH THE WIND FABULOUS!! NOW TWIRL!
beautifulelsie I truly do not think it is an issue of how hard she worked to achieve the title; it is simply that that title was 20 years ago. I cannot even tell you who has the crown now, let alone last year. 20 years ago? Please. That is absurd to even think that is important. She did not discover a cure for cancer after all.
beautifulelsie It's funny how ppl are quick to blame Walter when Kenya is the user and manipulator in this scenerio. She doesn't deserve him. Kenya was ready to marry a man she now accuses him of being gay, wtf???? She disrespected Walter infront of all, made inquiries for a 3some and put her ass all up on C's husband. Kenya gets kudos for being Miss USA, but just bc she won the title doesn't mean she is a respectable person, she's proven to be a liar and someone another woman could never fully trust around her man. People need to get off Walter's ass.
