When Apollo asked Phaedra what will happen to our friendship if we can’t work together, Phaedra’s response was, “Well the good thing is we haven’t been friends that long.” That says it all. She didn’t say I’d hate for that to happen and hope that business would not interfere with our relationship. Or, I value Kenya’s friendship, etc. Her heartless answer shows she could not care less about me or our so-called friendship. I thought the world of her and only wanted to please her. Regrettably, I moved forward without a contract in hopes of impressing her with my production expertise, passion, ideas, and specialized skill set and was shocked and appalled when she turned on me after learning of my own video plans when she refused to pay me.
As Cynthia noted, she, NeNe, and Kim all have competing wines. There is no need to act like crabs in a barrel and Phaedra does not hold the copyright to all fitness videos. Whether or not Phaedra thinks I stole her idea or not gives her no right to attack or demean me. This is where she crossed an unforgivable line. Phaedra stated that I “drink like a fish, I was drunk, my booty is fake, and I’m bipolar.” ALL BOLDFACE LIES!
-I’ve NEVER been drunk a day in my life! This is so absurd and hateful it’s laughable.
-My behind is REAL. I work hard for this body and it’s built from sweat and dedication to fitness, not a plastic surgeon’s scalpel.
-I have no mental disorder or chemical imbalance and have never been diagnosed with nor taken any anti-psychotic medications. Furthermore, there are people who greatly suffer from these serious life threatening illness, and shame on Phaedra for making a mockery of mental illness.
I don't think you stole Phaedra's idea. I think Phaedra wanted something for free. Did she intend to pay Cynthia a casting fee?? I doubt it. If Phadera came up with some "unique" exercise moves THAT HASN'T ALREADY BEEN DONE (doubt that too) and Kenya tries to put her name on it, that's wrong. But Kenya put work into it. Whether it was 6 days or 6 wks she put some work into it. Phaedra got full of her big butt and decided she didn't need Kenya. Just like Kim got full of herself and decided she didn't need Nene on the song. Kim and Nene's deal wasn't wrong but Kim and Kandi....I'm still pissed with how Kim used Kandi. But Phaedra and Kenya......neither one of them owes the other nothing!
Ms Moore, As I sit here writing this to you I already know you will not take this comment as seriously as I would love you to. I grew up in a house full of female artists. My grandmother was an accomplished dancer, my mother was a great singer and poet who published 2 books and came very close to being a part of history with Motown but my grandmother didn't sign the permission slip. The pride of being a classy black woman in my home was one of the most important lessons my grandmother taught me. The year you became Miss USA is the same year my grandmother was called home. I remember saying to myself how much we as black women have come that not only did we have a black Miss USA but we have someone who is articulate as well as beautiful to let the rest of the world know we are more than just what society wants us to be. It's difficult for me not to ramble so I will make this shorter than I intended. Your antics on this show have tarnished my image of you and what I thought you represented as Miss USA. As black women we should be more empowered by each other than always putting each other down and insulting each other. Society already does that to us and for you to show the world how petty you can be because of some words make me embarrassed to be a black woman. I've felt this way about your other cast mates but because I held you in a higher regard I felt I had to say something and let you know just how upset and angry I am at the fact that you feel your behavior on camera is okay and empowering. I pray you read this and understand why I feel this way and if nothing more just take heed to what I'm saying. I would love to tell my nieces and god daughters how powerful Kenya Moore is without having to lower herself to being so ugly. May God continue to shine on you in all you do.
Ms. Kenya, after actually seeing what was really said by Phaedra and how it was said do you feel stupid. You spoke of being a role model to many young girls but your actions showed different. Phaedra comments were really taken out of context by others especially Cynthia. To me it seems as if Cynthia started a lot of those conversations and Phaedra responded with concern of your behavior. Also, do you believe that you took what was meant for business personal, Phaedra made it clear that she would look at the numbers and get back with you why did you feel the need to go speak about this with others. Do you think this was a little out of line because I sure did. business is business and if I was in her shoe's I would do the same check out more than one way to get a job done. I just believe that you were so totally out of line in putting business out the way you did. I just hope that you will learn from your mistakes and grow up!
@miscey I think u don't have the rights to say Kenya needs to grow up because Kenya tries hard to make friends because she is new in the show
aozhu8261 miscey Yes, NO Right! She made some mistakes in the beginning. She wears her heart on her sleeve and all she has done was try to be a friend. Everyone tries to twist everything she does. I wounder if all the people who think Phaedra is great are anything like her, ewwww!! I hope and would be proud to be like Kenya. I can tell Phaedra is really having a hard time maintaining her fake sweet act, the ugliness is really coming out now, she is NASTY!
lol did she say she never said anything Negative about Phaedra, thats laughable because every conversation Kenya Moore had was trying to get everyone to say negative things about Phaedra and also said many herself including going to lunch with Porsha who she claims not to like just to try and poisen her mind too, and when that did not work she did the classic Kenya Moore get loud and dismiss anything anyone had to say
Pardon me, but didn't you say in a previous episode, the one where you met Phaedra and Apollo at the gym, that you were able to secure the distribution deal by using Phaedra's name??? So, if you are that connected, why did you need to use her name? However, now you are saying that it was your name that secured the deal. You sound like a walking contradiction. I'm going to be real Trois was a great movie and I had a tremendous amount of respect for you and your legacy before this show. Now I just want to shake my head. Maybe you need to get that Vanessa Williams book back from Cynthia and re-read it.
Can you stop being a drama diva for one minute and let thing ride?? OMG, this is not the way to make people like you and right now I would like to see you off the show. You have had dram with each and every person....it's not always about you.
Ok fellow bloggers to be fair Pheadra asked Kenya to produce the video and when the two could not come to terms on the finances, According to Kenya, this left a prior negotiated distribution deal on the table with no product. Since the deal was negotiated by Kenya her company holds the rights to the deal. This is the decision tell the company or persons "I worked hard on this deal but my friend does'nt want to pay my fee and went to somebody else so I am calling the deal off" or take the deal and make a stupid workout video. (What would you do?) No one has the rights to a butt video. If this was the case, "Brazilian Butt" would go after Pheadra. Moreover since Pheadra asked Kenya to produce and not to shoot the footage this means back end. This how a producers make their money. Exec Prods. put money in so you know they are going to get residuals.
NOW that foolish stuntt Kenya pulled at Nene's RED CARPET EVENT. I will ask again, Kenya have you lost your mind walking around at a semi-formal event with your butt hanging out!!?? You disgraced yourself. That act just proved Pheadra's accusations to be true. There had to be a better way and place to address the issues between you two. Well at least we know you workout. LOL
You are absolutely correct, Phaedra lies! Who cares what all the haters think here by judging Kenya. I have been around all sorts of people including high society for a long time. What she did was to make a principal statement regardless who says it was a classless act. I cannot begin to speak about how Phaedra comes across as nasty and trashy most of the time as well as Candy with some of the things I have seen on the show, especially with the stripper with her mom present. How disgusting!!!! One thing is that Kenya was absolutely right to do what she did, made sure that she confronted the gossip and the personal attacks straight at the source. Phaedra is a liar and a shady back door type person. She had no right to make any of the personal attacks as she is far from being any angel and has done far worse to people behind closed doors especially what she did to Cynthia and was caught on tape, what a bold face liar!!!!!. Nonetheless, I love Kenya regardless if she is a little eccentric. At least she is real unlike most of the fake people. Anyway, who doesn't have a little crazy in them, people just fail to show it because they are afraid of what people will think. I have watched closely and I have never heard Kenya talk or say comments just to say them like Porsha who is a total air head and I much rather continue to see Kenya than Porsha who makes for terrible TV. For people who really are mature, down to earth and strong willed would recognize that Kenya is not only very articulate but quick, alert and very intelligent. You people who judge her should truly look at the statement she was making, a statement of "principle" and confronted the comments straight forward, catching Phaedra off guard that way she wouldn't have time to "LIE" again as most of her life is nothing but lies and cover ups. Who cares if Kenya made a video, if Phaedra had any class she would have just embraced it but she acted like a elementary school kid. Anyway, I know for a fact that the production cost as well as the distribution cost of the video Phaedra did was much more costly than what Kenya proposed. Phaedra just has to much pride to allow anyone to know the truth. Stop hating people! It wasn't Kenya primary idea but ideas of her production assistant. She truly did want to help Phaedra, I just feel that Phaedra is only "ever" looking out for what is best for her and not a team player what so ever. She is all about the $$$$. Good Luck Kenya, I hope everything is well for your recovery and I will keep you in my prayers :)
Beautifully said !!! IT takes intelligence to recognize it in another.
I could not have said it better !!
TEAM KENYA ALL THE WAY !!!!
Kenya definitely knows what keeps people watching.This is the first season I've watched every Sunday night and I am loving me some Kenya Moore! She has some brass balls because I would never be able to show up to an event like that just to prove a point, but I can really appreciate that she's not afraid to do some of the crazy things she does and make mistakes while on tv. Honestly, she has given this show new life because I have never watched this faithfully before. She might appear crazy, but this girl is intelligent and knows exactly what she's doing!
themissusT " I would never be able to show up to an event like that just to prove a point" maybe because you ARENT crazy! and she wasnt tryin to prove a point...she was tryin to make Phaedra seem as dumb as she is. and im just wondering do you think the success of the show depends solely upon how much YOU watch it?!
With her behavior, the only thing she's proved to be relavent for on this show is being aggressive and "crazy"!
Kendra, do yourself a favor and get an evaluation by a reputable psychiatrist. You are making impressions that will follow you long after "Housewives" is over and it won't be pretty. You are being exploited by the network for the sake of ratings, and you apparently don't realize the long-term effects this could have on your personal and professional life.
First of all, how tacky to wear something as distasteful as that to a CHARITY event. I don't care what point you were trying to make, it was an unclassy move. You should have saved that for another time and place. Second of all, when you invite someone to lunch to talk about your differences....perhaps you need to focus on moving to higher ground. You were trying to be salty once again with Porsha and insulted her. Shows how small you really are Kenya and once again how insane. I would declined that lunch immediately. You are trash and trouble. Lastly, I would really like to know who (in their right mind) has asked you to be a role model and mentor. As far as pageants go, there are several other more sane Black women to ask other than you because you are totally bat *hit crazy.
So let me get this straight, in order to prove that you are not crazy, you do the craziest thing anyone could imagine.. hmmmmmmm yea Kenya that really worked...NOT..
Phaedra is laughing all the way to the bank. I heard her workout video is outselling some of Jillian's and becoming a best seller on Amazon. Somehow she did it without you. AMAZING!!!
Kenya, Kenya, Kenya. I just don’t even know where to start. I thought you were a few pageants short of a crown when the show first started – but that stunt you pulled at the charity benefit proved it. I am assuming the purpose behind that antic was to embarrass Phaedra and call her out??? Well honey, the only person you embarrassed was yourself. You looked like an absolute fool and true to form Phaedra just sat back smiled and watched you make a fool out of yourself. Funny how you tried to call Phaedra out on representing Bobby Brown “circa 1992” – but you still rest on the laurels of your Miss USA title???? Get over it – no one cares and Phaedra was correct – what have you produced that is worthwhile?? For someone who claims to be so professional, intelligent and well –connected in the industry, I am surprised that the best you could come up with was a “Stallion” video – really?? Reality check, you’re not the beauty queen you think you are and your body isn't that great either. I believe Phaedra when she said she wasn't referring to you as bi-polar as an insult – it is quite obvious that you do have some issues – bi-polar, anger management, attachment disorder – whatever they may be, you might want to get some help. No wonder Walter wouldn't marry your crazy ass – I wouldn't marry you either. Always the bridesmaid – never the bride!!!
ariestv Phaedra said right up front she thought Kenya needed help. Everything you said was right on. Kenya thought she was putting Phaedra down but she just made herself look crazier than ever. She is in need of the couch. And some meds. "a few pageants short of a crown." Sad, but FUNNY!!!
You really need to get over yourself! You may have been Miss USA, but the world does not revolve around you!!
Phaedra is no saint, but the way you showed up to that charity event only proved her right - you have some serious mental issues. Then, to meet up w/ Porscha as if you have anything to say that she would care to hear. You need to stop.
When Phaedra wore similar attire in Anguilla, it was beach worthy, venue appropriate.
Your attire and behaviour did nothing but validate what not only Phaedra, but others are worried about - that you are certifiable and should be committed to an institution. Let's face it, you are clearly envious of Phaedra and what she has in life - a husband, child, professional career and has time for all of the RHOA nonsense. Stop trying to one-up her.
There was absolutely no excuse for your behaviour at a social even - please seek meds and counseling! Your self esteem needs a serious boost.
Congratulations on your Miss USA title however since you constantly proclaim that title shouldnt you share the vales instead of acting CRAZY?? According to the Miss USA website: "These women are savvy, goal-oriented and aware. The delegates who become part of the Miss Universe Organization display those characteristics in their everyday lives, both as individuals, who compete with hope of advancing their careers, personal and humanitarian goals, and as women who seek to improve the lives of others."
Kenya, I didn't like you initially but I am warming up a little towards you. Phaedra's true colors are coming light. I had doubts about her southern belle charms when she accepted cash $ for lawyer fees in the court house parking lot from the young man at the end of his court hearing. I was like "wow".. no receipt... no professionalism ... no class. You do come across as over the top but I understand that you are trying to ensure a spot on next season's show. I agree with you, I never heard you say anything mean or disrespectful towards Phaedra. Phaedra is always spouting off that she is about her $ but she doesn't seem to be concerned with anyone else being paid for their services. How can Phaedra be judgemental towards you or any one else with her behavior as a pastor's daughter and convicted felon husband? I bet she paid the other video producers far more than she would have ended up paying you. I guarantee you that she had to pay them up front before they did any work on her ghetto work out video. You were kind when you said that her body isn't ready for a work out video. She never really lost the baby weight and she is " wrapped " in spanks.
It takes some one intelligent to recognise it in another clearly
you lack the intelligence Ms Valley has.
I think you are an intelligent person and I like how you speak up for yourself, however your actions may make people look at you differently. I understand you making your own video because the deal was on the table, but the way you went about it seemed a little unethical. Sparkle
That whole bathing suit thing was possibly the most classless thing I've seen in all my years. I hope your proud of yourself. Can you say BACKFIRED???
Kona_wahine yes! you worded that beautifully! all my years! that was crazy! my mouth dropped completely to the floor!
When I watch you act like a spiteful little girl, at a charity event none the less, I wonder what could possibly be going through your head. Who acts like that???? I wouldn't be surprised if they kick you out of the Miss USA club......I would!
Mocking people is only for children, but you don't seem very mature. How could anyone go out in public at a function dressed like that and acting like that. You are an embarrasment.
However, I think most people appreciated the humor. It took alot of balls to walk into a charity event half naked and call her out!
