Apollo's Immature Behavior

Kenya's is tired of hearing Apollo's accusations.

SLICK OUT OF SLICK

Slick husbands, slick mothers, slick children, and slick friends… This episode is full of people misbehaving, having their own agenda, being shady by making false or misleading representations and hoping no one will be none the wiser, thinking they are fooling someone and they are not, and planning and executing many behind the back dirtiness; definition of slick.

SLICK HUSBANDS

Watching Apollo repeatedly say he “could have slept with me if he wanted to” and seeing the way he behaves in his marriage just reminds me of how immature, disrespectful, and dishonest he is to his wife, marriage, and in life. Leopards don’t change their spots. Lying landed him in prison. His mouth says one thing, but reality and his character speak volumes: If he could have, he would have. I’m done with this.

SLICK MOTHERS

Seeing the dynamic of Kandi’s relationship drama unfold with her mother and Todd was like watching a movie that doesn’t know what genre it’s classified in.  Is it a horror movie?  When Mama Joyce tells Todd that Kandi “stepped herself down for him.” With my mouth agape I was horrified that she would say something so hurtful and disrespectful. Is it a love story? Todd asserting his love for Kandi and his desire to repair the relationship with Kandi’s mom in hopes of moving forward and some day marrying.  And Mama Joyce professing she will stop at nothing to protect her daughter. Is it a thriller? When Mama Joyce accuses Todd of being an opportunist and vows to hunt Todd down while investigating him. A dramedy? Emotionally conflicted I haven’t laughed and cried while watching our show so much. I had to make sure I wasn’t at a Tyler Perry movie! (LOL!) Although I sincerely appreciate the love these two have for Kandi, the way to a resolution is to speak honestly, respectfully, and constructively. Hurling insults, daggers, and threats is not a positive way to work on any relationship. In my humble opinion, Todd handled the situation with dignity, respect, and caution. Mama Joyce on the other hand… although a work in progress, she is old school to her core and you can’t slick a can of oil.  To be continued.
SLICK CHILDREN

Cynthia is a wonderful mother as evidenced by the open communication she has with Noelle. Although I do not personally think that a 13-year-old should have a boyfriend, that is Cynthia’s personal choice for her family. What I do appreciate is that Cynthia encourages honesty with Noelle, and that should be applauded. But children are just that -- children. For me, I was the slickest child anyone could imagine... Stealing the family car by backing it out of the driveway until it could no longer be heard when started, changing clothes at school, and having secrets. I can’t imagine having a daughter and having to hear about her dating, liking, or kissing boys. I appreciate the mother Cynthia is to Noelle, and in this case, I don’t envy the position she is in. With that said, Cynthia is one of the kindest, smartest, and most gracious women I know. I’m confident that Noelle will depend on the lessons her model mother -- figuratively and literally speaking -- has engraved in her during her formative years.

SLICK FRIENDS

It was a blessing to find a new home with a great landlord. Lawrence was so funny being slick as if he was actually moving any boxes. LOL! I love that he showed up, and he is one of the only people I can call a true friend. You can only call real friends to help you move!

At this time I know you all have heard of some recent health scares involving NeNe. I am wishing her well and know that she is doing well because God is good.

I am writing you from an amazing beach sipping on a piña colada. Now, I must get back to my drink. See you next week!

Xo,

Kenya: "I Will Always Be a Queen"

Kenya Moore dishes on the truce with Phaedra Parks and the non apology from Porsha Williams.

CLOSURE
The reunion represents closure on all levels. I believe most women need closure. Reunions are tough because you live through filming, then through seeing it on TV, and then again during the reunion. You can feel you have moved on from something difficult and then you have to discuss it and rehash it. I felt good about this reunion, because I have grown so much. I am stronger now and nothing or anyone can destroy me.

Speaking of opening old wounds, I was respectful toward Phaedra during the conversation, but it’s clear that after our truce, she still wants to call me a whore and liken me to other “whores in the bible.” God doesn’t like ugly. Maybe sitting alone on the sofa now is confirmation.

THE NON APOLOGY
There was a part of me that was hopeful about getting an apology for being physically attacked at the last reunion, since that would mean the past was behind us. You have to own what you do wrong in life. Children are taught that you don’t hit anyone first or at all. Whether provoked or not, isolated incident or not, physically attacking someone is legally and morally incomprehensible. As such, doing the right thing should be easy. But this is the same person whose grandfather was a greatly respected civil rights activist who fought for non-violence, yet thinks the Underground Railroad was an actual train that took people to freedom.

In typical fashion, Phaedra attacks my character in a preplanned soliloquy. But in her own words, her “THOT” friend thinks that spreading your legs wide open and accepting gifts from married men is admirable. Yet, it’s basically teaching young girls that having a square card reader between your butt cheeks is how one becomes “blessed” and “successful.” That’s why I will always be a Queen, literally and figuratively, because when I am wrong, I can apologize, forgive, and move forward. I can love, though I have not always been loved, and I can be talented and successful on my own merit without needing men to finance my lifestyle, and I can be the bigger person when others try to bring me down.

SINGLE VS MARRIED
Some viewers ask why there are single women on a show about Housewives. It’s simple -- every Real Housewife franchise has single women, from Beverly Hills to OC to NY to Atlanta. With that said, there are only two Housewives on RHOA that are currently not married, Claudia and myself. In fact, approximately 43 percent of all Black women have never been married. My journey is not unlike the many Black single women who watch our show. Nearly half of Black women want to be married and find true love but are not willing to settle or can’t find the right man. NeNe and her puppet would like everyone to think it’s better to be in a horrible marriage rather than be single.

Having said that, I have never received so much love from the viewers as when I was featured on The Millionaire Matchmaker. It made me realize is that I am no different from all the single women around the world looking for real love. My journey is their journey, and ultimately they want me to fall in love with them rooting me on. It happened for Kandi, Kim, Bethenny, Tamra, etc. and it will happen for me too with all of you by my side. Therefore, having single women as Housewives is good for the show. Everyone deserves a chance to be happy. And we can inspire and give hope to those looking for love.

Rumor has it that someone said single women should be fired from RHOA. As such, we wouldn’t have witnessed the beautiful rekindling of NeNe and Gregg's love or her wedding special. Therefore, those people clearly didn't create the successful model for this show. If it's a play to get me fired... Try again. #CatchThatShade
