No Pre-Nups for Porsha

Porsha explains why she wasn't interested in getting a pre-nup with Kordell.

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a great holiday break. As for me, I really had a chance to relax and spend quality time with family. I didn't get to go out of town like we had planned, because we had to stay nearby. However my forever romantic hubby found a way to turn it into an in-town vacation. We spent the week at the St. Regis where we got married and had a ball going to some great restaurants and shopping. For me the best part was spending the day at the REMEDE Spa. Our son had a chance to leave the country with his mom; he went all the way to Germany to visit family. We missed him while he was away, but we were able to spend some much needed one-on-one time to spice things up, hehe!

Now we are all back to normal, and I'm loving it. In the mornings I kiss my hubby and Syre off to school and work, and then before I know it I'm cooking dinner and it’s time for family movie night. Anyway, I just wanted to catch you guys up on what I've been doing.

Let’s dive right in to the latest episode. First let me say I’m so glad you have gotten the chance to see a little more of my personality and actually get my sense of humor. LOL! I can tell from watching myself I'm getting a lot more comfortable in front of the camera. How precious is NeNe’s glam-baby? Bri'Asia is so adorable I just wanted reach through the TV and pinch her cheeks. I’m supposed to be baby-sitting soon, and I must say I’m looking forward to the practice.



Speaking of cuteness everywhere, I loved seeing Riley interact with her mom and Todd -- they have become such a little family. For me Riley's relationship with Kandi reminds me of myself and my mom. It was always just me and her most of the time, and I was very protective of her. In my mind Ms. Diane belonged to me and only me, LOL! That brings me to my day shopping for furniture with Kandi. First let me share with you the name of the store, since I received so many questions about it -- Mathews’ Furniture Galleries. It is where I purchased the majority of our furnishings. What I love most about the store and the reason I took Kandi there is that for a creative decor lover it is a playground. I chose the majority of the fabrics, wood finishes, and frames for most of the pieces in my house. I guess it’s safe to say I have a thing for home decor. Here's a thought, maybe soon I'll do something with that talent…

Well let’s jump right in to when Kandi asked me if I had a pre-nup. I was thrown completely off. I really like her and felt comfortable with her, but here I am about to answer a personal question for the world to see. So I just fly out with a no. In my opinion a marriage is a sacred union between two people coming together as one with love being that foundation -- being one in mind, body, and spirit. This means I want to agree with my husband and have like minds, I want to bond with him in the flesh (meaning anything that has to do with the natural things, whether it’s a sexual, monetary, or family issue etc.). I also want to become one spiritually with my husband so that we are equally yoked. We have the same beliefs when it comes to God and how WE have our purpose shown to us by God. So through bonding with him in mind, body, and spirit there is no place for a piece of paper to stand between us. However I totally can see anyone else's point of view and understand why she or anyone else would choose to have one. For me I see it as a “to each his own” issue.  Well guys, I have enjoyed chatting with you all, but I need to run to the grocery store again. Somehow of the million things I bought, I forgot bread and turkey. Next time I promise it won't be so long.

 

Oh I almost forgot, did I tell you all that everyday somebody says I look like Lady Gaga? LMBO! I know you’re thinking what I'm thinking, I totally resemble her more than one of my cast mates looks like Beyonce. Haha!



Lots of kisses and hugs!

Yours Truly,

Kenya: This Was My Season of Vindication

Kenya Moore opens up about her journey this season and gives an update on her pilot.

Life Twirls On
I love this title because it’s a testament to my life. This season has been my year of vindication. Thank God, because it was a long time coming. Some of my fans were so angry that I had been lied on for two years that they wanted blood. They and myself were angry and hurt that someone would physically attack me and never issue an apology for their actions, regardless of whether or not they felt justified. And who could forget the years of being called a whore a thousand different ways all in the name of Jesus?

Forgiveness
I’ve learned many lessons along the way and forgiveness is one. I have to admit I could not have done it on my own. I have my family to thank for that. I’m from Detroit and I was raised in survival mode from day one with a mother who vowed to “dog me for the rest of my life.” Therefore, I will always be a fighter. But my focus has shifted and I have too much to lose. I have realized I cannot make a person do the right thing, I cannot educate beyond one’s rudimentary limitations, and I cannot change anyone. However, what I can do is take responsibility for myself and sit back and let karma do the rest -- funny how that works.

My Sister’s Success
One of my favorite principles is you have to be as happy for another person’s success as you are for your own. I’m that girl who roots for all the girls to win. This isn’t me versus NeNe… One can’t deny that just six years ago no one knew who NeNe was and now she has had some acting success. I congratulate her as another woman who has worked my entire life in the entertainment industry and all of our accomplishments must be acknowledged and respected alike. There is room for us all -- not just one at a time. I refuse to pull someone down like a crab in a barrel; jealousy has never existed in my heart. With that said, it’s a lot easier to root for someone that is humble, gracious, and most of all thankful.

“As an artist, I’m sensitive about my sh--” –Erykah Badu

LOL! I’m no different. I single handedly wrote, executive produced, financed, created, directed, and starred in my independent television pilot. Although the viewers only saw a glimpse of what it really takes to produce a TV show, it’s no joke. My name was on the line as well as my financial investment. But if I am going to gamble, I’d bet on me every time!

All the girls and I were in a good place but I still felt vulnerable. It’s torture to expose yourself in that way, to allow people to experience and criticize your work. But as you know, everything is not for everybody. With that said, it is a comedy and I did what I set out to do and that was make people laugh and entertain them. They all seemed to really enjoy it, and I especially appreciated Kandi, Demetria, and Claudia’s enthusiasm and love they showed me during the screening.

As a producer, it’s most fulfilling is to be able to employ others and give opportunities to talented people who may not otherwise be afforded them. Over 50 people worked on this production, and I want to thank my cast and crew for their priceless contributions and my Co-Executive Producer, Brandon DeShazer, for always coming through for me. There was so much excitement on social media as #LifeTwirlsOn was trending, creating a demand to see the entire show! The viewers have spoken and we will be airing the pilot very soon! Stay tuned for an official announcement.

To Team Twirl:
I see you, I hear you, and I thank you for fighting my battles for me. A lot of people have followers, but I truly have loyal fans. You have my back and I couldn’t do this without you. There was so much new positivity for me this season that it is unchartered territory for me. Don’t worry, I’m still that fiery, funny, shady, crazy Kenya that will read you for filth while twirling on my 5” heels you all have come to love or hate. From Celebrity Apprentice to Millionaire Matchmaker and talk shows like Wendy Williams, you continue to show up and make my shows some of the highest rated ever. Love me or hate me, I appreciate the fact that you can’t stop watching me! I love and appreciate you all.

Now Twirl!
