Kenya: "I Didn't and Don't Want Apollo"

Kenya was being playful, not flirting.

LET’S CUT TO THE CHASE

THE TRIP

I am an uninhibited, off-the-cuff, wild card who likes to enjoy life. I can fall on my face at times, but I get right back up, dust myself off, laugh, and keep it moving. I never take things or myself too seriously in my personal life.

THE INVITATION?

I was elated that Kandi wanted me to go on vacation with the girls, because I thought it would be a lot of fun. And it was! Not only did we get to see an incredible island, eat amazing food, and enjoy all the activities the island had to offer, we were bonding, having a great time, and getting to know each other.

Even after Cynthia refused to invite me, she even had to admit that I was very pleasant and nice to her and willing to move on and start fresh after our first misunderstanding. I try not to dwell in the past or hold grudges. We both took jabs at each other in self-defense. We have yet to actually discuss our fallout, so I have to be open and willing to move on and hope one day Cynthia can too.  THE FLIRT

The fact is, we were having a great time and I’m sure you all could see there were drinks flowing, good music, good conversation, and we let our hair down. We were all horsing around and it was HARMLESS. When I watched the show playback I cringed a little. I was acting a fool!  What was in that rum punch? LOL! Does it appear that I flirt with Apollo by pushing him in a pool? I was playing around and being silly -- not flirting with Apollo. I did not think he was flirting either by pushing me back.  Now, as to the “tall drink of water,” guilty. Perhaps it was passive aggressive behavior. I’m not saying it was proper, but it is a possibility I was acting out.

LET’S CUT TO THE CHASE

With that said, I don’t think that having fun or flirting warrants being ostracized or having to wear a scarlet letter on my chest. We were all having the best time. NeNe even flirts some, but no one took that seriously and no one should take my flirting seriously either.  It appears through Phaedra’s interviews that she had strong opinions about it and fired warning shots in my direction. However, by the end of the trip, you will see that Phaedra and I remained close friends and she saw it for what it was, HARMLESS. We kept it moving. No harm, no foul. She knows I didn’t and don’t want Apollo. I don’t want any man that is married. When I go to sleep at night, I get in my own bed and there isn’t anyone’s husband in it.

I strongly support and believe in the institution and sanctity of marriage. And despite the odds, I hope all of the happy couples endure the challenges of staying together under the microscopic, critical eye of a reality TV show.There are only 10 days left to Christmas. I hope that everyone takes the time to enjoy their family, laugh out loud, and enjoy this beautiful life we have… it’s worth living to the fullest.

Next week’s show is going to go down in history. Many things come to a head. It is the most exciting episode to come!

P.S. There will be a special surprise that I have been working on and will release to my Twitter followers on Monday. I hope you enjoy it.

Kandi's Tired of the Drama

Kandi Burruss shares her perspective on the confrontation between Kenya Moore and Phaedra Parks.

Bravotv.com: Were you surprised Todd was so bothered by your bonnet?
Kandi Burruss: No, I wasn't surprised. He's always talking crap about my bonnet. That's nothing new. We're coming to a compromise about the bonnet. I'll just put it on after he's asleep.


Bravotv.com: Were you skeptical about NeNe's intentions with Phaedra?
KB: Of course I'm skeptical. NeNe has been nice these last few months, but that does not make me forget the years of drama and insults that have come from her in the past. Yes, I get that people change, but it's OK for me to proceed with caution as I would've thought Phaedra would. Well, hopefully things will continue to be great with them and NeNe can continue to be Phaedra's rock.

Bravotv.com: What was going through your mind during the Phaedra and Kenya drama?
KB: Honestly I was just over it. Every time we all get together there has to be some lame ass "tea" spilled, and I'm just tired of it. Seeing Phaedra jump up was shocking, but clearly she wasn't really going to hit Kenya and Kenya definitely wasn't going to do anything.

What tripped me out was hearing Porsha and Phaedra make me out to be the enemy because I left the table two seconds later than they did. That just felt like they said, "Hey, we're going to put Kandi in the middle of this drama in some way." Well if Phaedra is really going to play into this whole "Kandi's not my friend because she didn't jump into my argument and run out the room faster than me," then OK... So be it.
