Young women need all the help they can to find their way in the world. They may come from various backgrounds, perfect homes or broken homes, but they all deserve a chance to thrive and be the best person they can be, and pageants can be the platform with which they can exceed. Often times, troubled girls need an outlet. I grew up in the inner city of Detroit that some might even call the ghetto. My loving grandmother did everything in her power to keep me off the streets and out of trouble. When I received a flyer from a friend advertising a pageant for girls ages 13-17 I couldn’t wait to sign up. My friends and I were all pretty excited and had our own reasons for entering. For me, it was a way of escaping my dangerous and often perilous environment.
LITTLE MISS BLACK STAR
I entered my first talent pageant (Little Miss Black Star) at the age of 14 years old. For the talent portion of the competition I danced to Marvin Gaye’s His Eye is on the Sparrow. We had an evening gown competition where we were judged on poise and grace and interviews as well. I eventually walked away with the 1st runner-up prize. It was one of the best and most positive experiences of my life. At Cynthia’s pageant, I could see the hope and faith in the young girls’ eyes, and it warmed my heart to know that I too have been in that position. That night could be the start of something truly fabulous for them.
You were the BEST toward Cynthia in the first pageant! Her co-host, on the other hand, was a very poor choice. Who would dress as he did for any event! And he was unprofessional when the names got mixed up...not because they got mixed up but even I could have handled that one better. Like, "forgive me that was so-and-so and now we have the real (name). Sheesh what an ass to make such a big deal out of it and say what he said.
Anyway, you were right. It was a good first pageant for Cynthia and very educational too, huh?
I totally agree with SkyAfonso1. You need some kind of adjustment in your attitude towards others even those who are less fortunate than you and your personality really can use some adjustment as well. How you became Miss U S A is beyond me and that title you have taken a little bit to far because no one remembers after Vanessa Williams and becauae you were not the first I am sorry but that doesnt put you in the history books like Obama. Im quoating you. Remember? That was one of your delusional lines.
I honestly felt bad for you when you had your biopsy done, and I am glad that it was nothing. I don't wish anything like that one anyone. That being said, my dear Kenya, you need to work on your personality...YOU are a mean girl! The comments you make about others make you look so ignorant....and one last thing..stop tooting your own horn!
Keep tooting your own horn. If you don't, no one else will. No one seems to get upset when Nene and Phaedra are constantly name dropping.
Also, I like the way you showed off your abs. Great way to advertise for your work-out video.
You don't deserve to be dished Porsha's brand of stupid and hurtful, or Phaedra's trash. But you are THERE and you need to deal. Find a way and stick to your core. You've got great abs, irons in the fire and a great sense of humour. You can do this but you'll have to deal. Btw, Cynthia is no one's friend for long. But you know that. And that Nene's incorrigible impersonation of you and Phaedra (especially) hysterical! Por Porsha and the coffee maker! "That's creamer." That's because her daddyo do all fo her.
You should have never accepted the job of juding the pageant after you had already brought a girl to compete in it. This is a conflict or intrest and you know it. Cynthia does not have any experierce with pageants and did not know this, but you did. This is just one of the things that gives pageants a bad name.
@observer12 the girl she bought did not participate in the pageant. There'd only be conflict of interest if she did participate in the pageant.
I have never been a fan of Kenya's, but I have to say that I really felt bad for her in last night's episode. Porsha was just really cold hearted at the dinner with her comment about her party. She didn't need to say how great it was and that Walter enjoyed it, blah blah blah when she knew Kenya already felt bad. Yes, I know they have had a bad relationship since the beginning, but Kenya was being really good on this trip at not causing problems. It was just mean and immature - as always.
PureLife Kenya was "acting" nice girl. Come on. Who keeps it real? Not Kenya. Listen to her interviews. She's talking crap-crap-crap. Saying she's trying and trying. Then boom, explodes. She never seemed heart broken about the Walter "relationship". She's just upset Porsha mentioned the fact Walter enjoyed the party. Not because of Walter, but because she knew Porsha invited Walter PERIOD. Kenya doesn't fool anyone. At least not me.
I don't care if she was "acting" or not - at least she was trying to keep the trip peaceful and the drama to a minimum. Porsha has really shown herself to be immature and I can understand Kenya's frustration with her. It was also just mean spirited of her to rub it in about the party and how Walter was invited but Kenya was not. I don't blame Porsha for not inviting her since they aren't really friends, but to say that was just to be hurtful.
Kenya I really enjoy you on this show. You make me laugh when I watch RHWOA. Just keep your head up and don't listen to all of those haters, there jealous. lol
Kenya, you're doing great! forget about the negativity that is being typed out. posha, needs to be educated about ...well EVERYTHING, phadrea, needs to be educated about free enterprise. You are doing great about trying to be calm. Good Job
Dear Kenya, It took me a while to like you after the way you behaved at Cynthia's model search....but I quickly started to admire and respect you. You are brave and beautiful, and that awful man you were trying to convince to marry you is a dirt bag. He had no intention of committing and he treated you really really badly...with disdain and smugness. I couldn't stand him. So I am delighted that you finally dumped him. You deserve a man who adores you and treats you like a princess. I just wish the other women had your back. Why on earth would any one of them be entertaining that Walter on any level..... Porsha also treats you badly, and she shows her immaturity every time she opens her mouth. That is one nasty and jealous child!
This old white lady in NC just wants to say, I think you are one classy lady....
I REALLY THIGN U ARE THE ONLY ONE WHO SAY THE TRUE IN THE SHOW... PLS PEOPLE R U REALLY LISTEN WHAT TOEHR PEOPLE SAY?
Dorrian If you are going to comment on something please learn grammar!! Read your post and you will see what I'm talking about.
Kenya i think you need meds also. And a lady dont have a messes mouth like your. You make yourself look bad you dont need no help with that boo.
Kenya, Before you joined the cast I couldn't wait until Sunday nights to re-watch the previous Sundays' episode leading up to the current episode. Now, your presence has forced me to mute the portions when you open your mouth. You still have some deep issues.
Ittbittit I'm glad I'm not the only person who does that. I can't stand it because you don't know what to expect from her.
Kenya, I just watched the show where you went in for you exam...I have had he same problem with in the last two weeks. I thanks GOD your results came out good. Keep the stress out your life and keep your head up....
Kenya while i am not a fan of the over the top makeup use for child pageants, i am confused as to why you would choose to comment on a 6 yr old child as being exploited like a hooker.....now come on, honey boo boo is too young to know what a hooker is...and we viewers can see that maybe misguided Mom of honey loves that child to distraction....if you were truly a good person, instead of calling out a child in such derogatory terms, you would offer advice to her mother ...they live in GA. too....i am a big fan of her show, because these people are not ashamed of who they are, and make no apologies for it..so they pass gas on camera.....big deal....you walked into a charity event with you A-cheeks exposed....hmm...don't hookers do that??
5 FlutterBy I agree with you 1000%! Remarking negatively on the way a child looks is "off limits" to most emotionally stable, sane people. Walking into a 'charity', making a scene to make it all about yourself, also just goes to show how unstable Kenya is. I love that Nene sees right through her.
I just went back and read comments from four months ago on Porsha's blog. Her first one. This shed some insight for Me on why you have behaved so deplorable ALL season. You were thratened by Porsha!!!!! You really were and are. From her looks to her marriage to her having a son (step child or not) to her kind, loving spirit, to her wealth.......let's just say every thing about her. I can see your venomous behavior coming out which really did attribute to you being insane and stressed out. I hope you get the needed rest and therapy you need. I still hope to NOT see you back on this show; for I would like to continue to watch it and support it's sponsors.
EloiseM I think all these women are threatened by anyone who has a man who "really" earns a living
Eloise ........how about posting things that would create, unite or provide a common bond between these women; as opposed to making accusations based on Bravo's intrepetation of their lives. I love these shows and am able to find positivity in each "character". Please be careful about pointing fingers or this show will have you "needing rest and therapy". Peace my Sister!
Kenya is a theif.. A stealer of ideas...A phony.... A fake and a very spiritualy bankrupt individual....
YOU WANT TO KNOW WHO AMONG THESE HOUSEWIVES IS A PROFESSIONAL THEIF??? GO GOOGLE FAKEDRA'S PAST. SHE ONLY MARRIED APPOLO TO SILENCE HIM FOR THEIR DUBIOUS PAST. STOP THE NAME CALLING BEFORE I DISH OUT DIRT ABOUT YOUR IDOL.
Aggie69......suit yourself!!!!!!! There would be a matter of BELIEVING YOU. Calm down Kenya.
Kenya, you are bitch. The only reason why you changed your tune is because everyone didn't like you and could see you for who you are. You think because you we're miss USA that you made history. No one knows you or even remembers. You are mean, vindictive, and evil. You are no better than anyone else. You say you have changed, bullshit. You have no class, you are trash. Gone with the wind crazy you are.
The shows are already recorded and they would not have known the reaction of the viewers. So, Kenya didn't get nicer because people were getting angry with her. The characters have to comment on the show after they have seen the edited part of what the viewers are watching. I don't even want to imagine what was edited and made into less than an hour show. I was watching WWHL and I know they haven't started the Reunion show yet, because NeNe commented to Andy that he should ask her three tweeter questions to the ladies at the Reunion show.
Well you know who she is now and apparently you watch her every Sunday night on Bravo. And if you watch the show next season, you will likely see her then too. She has as much (or more class) than any of her castmates. They all say catty things about each other, that's why we watch.
Kenya, this my first time ever on a blog . . . However, I have to say I am very offended by your comments regarding Donkey's . . . It is people like yourself that know nothing about Donkey's/Burro's that make the kind of comments you've made about Donkey's and their booties that give them this stigma. I'm assuming it comes from ignorance when people talk about run down, tired Donkey's. This is the stigma that causes animal haters to treat donkey's the way they do. We have rescued so many from Ranchers that have abused and mistreated them because of this way of thinking. I'm curious . . . Have you ever seen one in person? My daughter has a Wild Burro rescue in California in the Riverside County area and they are one of the most beautiful animals on this earth. They are sensitive, gentle, caring and very sociable creatures. I can go on forever about how amazing they are but I would suggest you vist a Wild Burro Rescue Center and learn more about these awesome Beautiful Donkey's. I'm sure you wouldn't want anyone speaking unkindly of your pets breed. If you can't say anything positive of any animal, then I would suggest you say nothing. From a serious Animal Lover ; )

So, please tell why you didnt wear your crown. Did the Ms. USA committee remove it from you? The other queen wore her crown proudly.
BadMammerJ I think we're going to be waiting for a while! She has not shown any all season, why should she start now? Just saying....
BadMammerJ When I have viewed Kenya in any setting, she doesn't exude class or remind me of a graceful stallion. It's more like watching a dog scoot it's butt across the carpet.
Had it been a simple workout video I would have said good business but she took an idea that her cast mate had first and that to is very shady..I believe it's sad how she banked off someone else's idea but it essentially showed how low class and petty she is
Kenya, you need to move on with your own project. Stop living off the other housewives and come up with something of your very own.
