REALITY TEA AND THE REAL ME

This has been a truly amazing week for me. During a weeklong press trip to NY I got to visit the vibrant and funny larger-than-life Andy Cohen as a guest of Watch What Happens Live! In case you missed it please visit Bravotv.com. It’s great to be able to reveal more of who I am outside of the RHOA and their short clips of me every week.

The highlight of the week was my appearance on the Wendy Williams show. It felt like I was hanging out with an old girlfriend. Wendy is tough but I LOVE her outspokenness, realness, and the sweetness underneath the hard shell. Hmmm… wonder why?

I got to set the record straight on the Cynthia Bailey Jet casting debacle and my undeserved mean girl moniker and why my visceral reaction to ignorance and blatant disrespect in regards to my journey to Miss USA and where and who I am today.

I’m on my way to a much-deserved vacation… Thanks for all the love and support! I appreciate all of you who are giving me a chance to win your hearts over because “I’m already in yo’ head Anna Mae” – Ike Turner. NO MORE DRAMA MAMA

I love seeing Kim with her girls. They seem wise beyond their years and give mom Kim great advice. The family seems to be adjusting well to their new living situation.

LOOK BUT DON'T TOUCH

I’m obviously meeting with Apollo and Phaedra to discuss working on a workout video. I’m a very honest and vocal person and don’t consider complimenting Apollo on his physique flirting and certainly meant no harm or disrespect. Naturally, fitness and physique play a role in our potential upcoming venture. All present knew that it was not flirting. Phaedra had no issues with my compliments or jokes nor did my guy. And who flirts with their mate present if they were up to no good? Really, who does that? It was lighthearted and harmless people. It is still my opinion that Apollo is fine and Phaedra is a lucky woman but that is Phaedra’s husband. And I’m not interested in her husband or anyone else’s husband. Enough said.

ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A KINDERGARTENER?

I often play with my nieces who are 4-6 years old. They are so smart. So I asked them what is 2 times 2? They said 4. Right! I asked how many days are there in a year? 365! One even said 365 and 1/4. Right again! I can do this all day. But I really can’t laugh at a grown woman of 32 with this type of impediment. It’s actually very sad and hurts my heart to watch until I hear the constant jabs being taken at me. But it’s clear by her comments tonight about me is that the revisionist historian is back to her lies. If you keep needling anything it will eventually explode.


I do believe NeNe is a good judge of character and I wonder how she feels now knowing that she, Phaedra, and Kandi were thrown shade by her and lied on about attending her grandfather’s charity events just to take pictures and leave. The truth will come to light as it always does and one’s true intentions and personhood will be known. Hopefully NeNe and company will see for themselves.LADIES WHO LUNCH

I was happy to see Cynthia receive a well-deserved apology from Phaedra. Even though Miss Cynthia’s eyeball rolling was obvious and rude and she was not warm to me at the brunch, I was still polite to her nonetheless. I love getting to know the rest of the ladies like Phaedra, Kandi, and Kim who have welcomed me with open arms. Obviously, Cynthia is still holding a grudge and although NeNe said she won’t hold that against me, she isn’t exactly warm and fuzzy to me either at this point.

Since I don’t have a dog in this fight as the new girl, I just sit back and watch the show.

I’m officially on vacation. See you next week everyone.

Kenya: I'm More Empathetic Toward Apollo

Kenya Moore weighs in on the drama between Phaedra and Apollo.

GROWING PAINS
Claudia has a new home, new job, new friendships that are developing, and a new life. That is a lot of stress for anyone to handle. Claudia has always been the life of the party and the girl who is friends with everyone. To see her going through grief upsets me, because I have personally witnessed her extending an olive branch to all of the women, even some who have made it their mission to disenfranchise me. It makes me sad to see that they are being punitive simply because I introduced her to the group and they are not willing to give her a chance. Like me, Claudia is a fighter and strong, but we all have our breaking point.

PON DE REPLAY
Cynthia was amazing! As an actor you have to be willing to take chances, make and commit to strong choices. This project is important to me, because it’s not only being completely financed by my company, but it is what I enjoy doing the most in my professional career. I love creating projects and producing. The great thing about Cynthia’s audition is that she came to play. I love it when an actor goes for broke and that she did!

DEAD MAN WALKING
Some people love to criticize me for having an opinion about Phaedra and Apollo or anyone else on the show at this point, as if somehow it is never any of my business. Despite the fact that this is a show where we discuss our issues, thoughts, and observations of one another. We may not agree, but I am entitled to and allowed to provide my input. We may not agree, however, no one and nothing is off limits when issues are put out there for public consumption.

Additionally, I’d like to point out that Phaedra and one other laughed, taunted, and tried to demean and humiliate me about Walter and my African Prince. In fact, Phaedra took pride in and reveled in the demise of my relationships, challenges having children, and my relationship with my mother. Some viewers have selective memory when it comes to my history on this show. They would like to conveniently forget when she said, “You can’t turn a whore into a housewife,” and that was PRIOR to Apollo accusing me of propositioning him.

With that said, I have empathy for those children and I am a forgiving person. In this case, I’m not judging her actions. I’m stating facts, history, and sharing my thoughts.

THE PHAEDRA FILES
It was very uncomfortable to watch them. No one wants to witness the demise of a marriage when there are children involved. Phaedra appeared unbothered, stoic, cold-hearted, and condescending. The truth is and remains that they each have said malicious and hurtful things to me to cause public humiliation and disrepute. However, I find myself more empathetic toward Apollo, because the difference between Phaedra and Apollo is that Apollo had the decency to apologize to me for what he had done to me. He showed contrition for his smear campaign and Phaedra has not. She is seemingly proud of what she did to me and has no remorse. Therefore, when I witnessed all the accusations about him threatening to burn the house down, having punched holes in the walls (which we did not see), and her mother stating she doesn’t want to come home and find "everybody dead," it seemed to me like another one of her smear campaigns, thereby making it easier to defend the cheating allegations coming down the pike.

#WHOISCHOCOLATE
What I see without any manipulation is a man who is hurting, angry, and afraid that he will lose his children because Phaedra refuses to bring them to see him in prison and who also believes his wife has moved on with another man before the bed even got cold. By his account, his wife, who promised to be with him until death do them part, really meant until "Chocolate" do them part.


#CELEBAPPRENTICE
We filmed the show over a year ago and it’s just now finally over! Congratulations to the lovely Leeza Gibbons on her win. It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. I received so much praise from people who actually preferred to watch me in my boss mode than on RHOA, understandably so. Although I didn’t win the title, as such, I won big because the kids of Detroit won $20,000! Despite the attempts to attack my character and integrity, I thank the fans who believed me and Donald Trump himself who stated he believed I had nothing to do with #phonegate. Thank you for showing your support and keeping me on top with respect to the ratings! Team Twirl has spoken and the world heard you loud and clear!

Love,

Kenya
