Kenya Moore

Kenya thinks Joyce needs to have more faith in Kandi and her decision to marry Todd.

on Dec 9, 20130

SHOE FETISH

I recently served as maid of honor for one of my best friends. I consider myself as her family. When Mama Joyce told Carmon it was a family affair, I was offended for her. I have been in the company of Mama Joyce many times and she is a sweet, caring, warm person. Having said that, even when emotions are running high, it is never a reason to be taken out of character. I was disappointed to see her take off her shoes as if to prepare for battle or throw them at Kandi’s BFF from childhood, whom she considers a daughter herself. Mama Joyce must contain her inner angst and allow Kandi to live her life, trust that Kandi will protect herself, and understand that she instilled the values in Kandi that have made her the sharp, successful business woman she is today.

Your problem is you are so delirious and unhappy with your own life that you take it out on everyone else.

i think its disgusting how you manage to point out some of the girls weight in past episodes.. None of the girls on RHOA are overweight by any means so I think its rude and disrespectful to not only the girls but viewers who watch the show as well.

Kenya I think you can be a snob and mean spurted at times but I also think that you keep your defenses up because with the exception of Cynthia, you are indeed the physical beautiful woman on that show and at times the treatment afforded you remind me of insecure jealous women in high school.  You remind me of the bullied little girl who no matter what you say and do to try and get people to understand you, works out the wrong way.  My advice? Stop trying to get people on or off the show to accept you, drop your misguided defenses, and continue to be the smart and proud woman you sometimes show yourself to be. Oh by the way since so many say a man would not want you, every man I have spoken with said HELL YEA I'd date her.

Funny how Kenya continues to claim to have a relationship with someone from Africa but yet no one has ever seen him.

Kenya, everything about you is LOUD! You are so desperate for attention that your mere presence is off putting. Turn it down and act like a lady. You make Amorosa look like docile. You are so offensive that it so clear why men want nothing to do with you. Turn it down and act like a lady.

What is wrong with mama Joyce...she's wacked....she's the one in for the money. So what if Todd doesn't make money...wtf does she do?

Well I now better understand your desperate need for everyone's attention. You truly just want to be seen.  While it may be true that negative attention from a parent is better than no attention, it's not true for any other relationship in your life. Negative attention from friends, coworkers, partners, children is just that - negative.  Please work on garnering positive, loving responses - which is what you really want - rather than always creating negative attention. It doesn't serve you.

Ms Joyce is so wrong on a lot of levels. To me she acts like there might be something  more going on with her  other than her dislike of Todd, and susupicions of Carmen. She might be going thru  the early stages of something, to appear to be so intensely mean for  no reason. Now I realize that what we are seeing might be almost a year old (and Todd and Kandi might already be maried now) but I wonder if she (Joyce) is that nasty ON camera, she must really be a b--ch OFF camera. I wish the best for Kandi and Todd and I hope things have worked out. Her daughter Riley is watching how she handles this situation. Also those "aunts" in the bridal shop were ridiculous.

Girl, you did NOT write this... how much did you pay this writer to make you seem rational and somewhat likeable??

Although I do think that you mean well....you're a real jerk sometimes. All viewers over 200lbs, any girls that admire your pageant (whichever it was), and intelligent women that actually know where Savannah is...are disappointed. You can get attention without being a mean girl.

Ok here is what i don't understand you want to be acting like you are on Kandi's side when in fact is on video all the negative things you have said about her and all other ladies on show as well.You don't want  anybody to tell you that you are wrong about the whole Apollo situation and yes i do think he was in the wrong too.You knew what you were doing you wanted to hurt  his wife so come one let's keep it real. Why is it that when you are with your aunt you are a normal human being but then when she is not around wanna be Beyonce  be happy with who you are you don't need to be anybody else be yourself.

Oh Kenya - I thought you were a little "out there" when you first appeared on this show. Sadly, my thoughts have not changed!

Well said Kenya!  I agree mama Joyce needs to collect herself and mind her business!.  Kendi is a grown woman who is a mutli-millionaire! She is no dummy!  I do think that she's too interested in her daughter's money.  She is like a country bumpkin from the sticks never had money and thinks everyone is out to get her daughter's money.  She just makes her daughter feel like she's not good enough to find real love or for anyone to care for her

without money.  Its wrong and it makes me sad for Kandi who is full of fear and insecurities as a result of her mother's meddling.  Lord have mercy and give Kandi strength to stand up to her and say "ENOUGH!!" Can I get an Amen!?

Kenya, what a disgusting 'woman' you are, and I use that term loosely, perhaps 'desperate tart' is more suitable for you, texting anybody's husband is off limit's, well for an intelligent person anyway, it's no wonder you have no genuine friends, you are untrustworthy and completely fake and everybody's see's through you, you have proven the term 'what a joke' to be very true. LOL, we thank you for the laughs, laughing at you that is. LOL.

Kenya – You have renewed my interest in RHOA.  You are provocative, astute and have an incredible physique.

Only someone who’s been abandoned as a child (as I have) could possibly comprehend your emotional suffering.  You will overcome!  Pay no mind to cruel heartless bloggers.  Best wishes Ms. Moore.

Ms. Gone with the Wind Fabulous, I enjoy watching you!  Sometimes you can be a rabid dog with a bone when you get your mind set on going after someone. LOL. 

 

Best of luck to you..and sorry you got such a bad rap for those texts.  I believe it takes two to tango and Apollo was the married one and knew better.

Kenya,

You are a beautiful woman, but I noticed your skin is dull and I also noticed that some of the other woman as well.  I was thinking if it could be the light off color lipstick that draws out the complexion.

 

I remember when I dyed my hair a bright color (by mistake), I had to make sure I wore make-up because it made me look pale and I can also say it did the same thing to my complexion.

VERY WELL SAID, Kenya.  I think that this post sheds light on who you are as a person, and I commend you for bravely telling your story.   Yes, you have been a drama queen at times, but so have aaaaallll of the other women.  I am 44 having my first child -- and let me tell you it was NOT easy.  I have a miracle here.   Definitely go for that baby right away -- any man who marries a woman our age should expect some children too.   (BTW I just got married last year.)

Kenya, I won't even give any advice in regards to your Mom situation because quite honestly, I can't even relate.. My old girl and I may not have the best relationship, but we do have one sooo.. I digress... I will tell you this though, God put people in your life for a reason and remove them for a better one.. I pray that you get the closure that you need to grow, move on, and find that perfect husband you've always dreamed of and have plenty of lil smart mouth bad ass ashy legged kids.. LOL!  

Now, the Kandi/Momma Joyce don't like her fiance Todd debacle.. I can so relate. I waited nine whole years to get married because I wanted the  whole DREAM WEDDING thing with my entire family.. However, like Kandi, both my and my husbands family did not approve of our marriage.. We finally decided to get married and neither of our parents or siblings attended our wedding... We've been married  eight years now and we still behave like newlyweds.. Our families eventually came around... Why?  Because they had no other chioce.. "What God has joined together, let no MAN put asunder."  All Kandi need to do is put her foot down and not tolerate any disrespect in regards to Todd and her marriage.. This marriage ish aint no joke.. ONLY REAL, TRUE LOVE WILL SURVIVE.. Folks get married for the better, not the worse.. Your parents not liking your spouse is a "WORST" type situation,  IMHO.. 

 

@Kandi, " FORSAKE ALL OTHERS"  means exactly that.. Ball in your court...

Kandi is going to end up alone if she doesn't stand up to her mother! Momma Joyce needs to be respectful of Kandi and her choices. What is Kandi going to do when her mom isn't around anymore? She will still be unmarried and probably lost some good friends. It's one thing to be overprotective, but there are always boundaries and she seems to cross them a lot! Kandi will be missing out on happiness if she chooses to allow her mom to make every decision for her!

Kenya, I think you would be a blast to hang out with -- and, I can hold my own when it comes to a disagreement or standing my ground  too -- I think we would end any argument that might arise in hysterical laughter!   Let me know if you ever come to Michigan LOL

Kenya, I know that it can be extremely hard to deal with a living parent who rejects you. That's a powerful hurt, and I do hope that you will be able to get over that wall and live the life God desires for you. I have to wonder if maybe something happened with your mother before you were conceived/born. It's possible that the circumstances of her pregnancy were very difficult or painful. She might have been raised with a hyper-religious family, and they might have made her feel dirty for being sexually active and getting pregnant (whether out of wedlock, or through an affair, etc).

 

You did not deserve to be abandoned, but there may be more to the story than what you've heard. Maybe your aunt knows some things, and you could talk to her about them.

I can understand you have a void in your life which may explain your actions as you said in your blog. However, your aunt is an amazing woman, and raised you. Your actions should NOT reflect the cray cray in those eyes which we are all witnessing!

Kenya, I was wondering what you were going to do to spark interest this season. You are now blaming your mother or lack of mother on the poor choices of men you've had. If you've had 7 proposals and chose not to accept them it probably had nothing to do with you not having a " mother". Your whole blog is nonsensical. I think you are fabricating the "African Prince" story. You are trying to make us believe that he would do anything for you and he wants you to be happy but you don't know if you want marriage or a baby. Girl, if an Afriican Prince was even remotely interested in you , you would've kicked RHOA to the curb....big time. You are now forty-two , which is a little advanced for having a first child. And, if you are a Christain, trust me, God does not plan for you to conceive a child without the benefit of a husband.

What cracks me up is that Kandi and NeNe go off on Kenya and she talks about them as though she is the best of friends with them.  Two more examples of how this crazy is deluded.

Why are you commenting on a situation of which you are not a part??  You've got no business of your own, so you have to mind the business of others, huh?

 

Iyanla Vanzant should have a new show called, "Iyanla, Help Me Get A Life".  And you should be the first guest. Dayum!

  I agree.  It's quite obvious that Kenya is jealous of Phaedra and Kandi.  They have what she so desperately wants and is unable to obtain, therefore she lashes out with insults.  So very sad to watch this woman in action.  The funniest thing is that she can't or won't accept that her behavior is what is keeping her from getting  what she wants most in life.

 @shecodes Thanks for sharing btw and congrats on your child! People are so stupid these days, acting like EVERY women in her 40s cannot give birth. My mom used to keep a little boy some years back that had a mother about Kenya's age and she had GROWN children, even grandchildren!

 @kcat If you watch the Conan video of them on YouTube, you will find that 98% of the guys thought Kenya was fine and down to earth while they said the other girls were acting stuck up.

 @Dollars2Donuts I read an old article once that said that Kenya's mom came from a family where it was considered embarrassing to have kids out of wedlock. Her parents had her when she was like 16. Kenya comes from a middle class family on her mom's side. Just thought I'd share some more details...

 @Dreid123 LOL! She has NOTHING going on...I swear Bravo should have let Kordell get more air time this season just to give her something productive to talk about...her walking in everyday stores with her sister is boring.

 @TupeloHunyntheLou

I know people don't want to believe it, but childhood problems shape people as they become adults. I remember stating to a cousin that she was accountable for her own actions and need to move on and accept their parent with her flaws. I personally think that you can't change anybody and once people understand that they will have to learn to live with it or continue to go through hard life lessons.

Please correct me if I am wrong Halle Berry and other actresses hand a child in their forties. I think Kenya is in good health and may be able to have a child. Times have changed where older people can have babies. There was a story where a mother carried her daughter's baby for her. So, it is not too late for her - she also stated she is open to having a child other than the natural way.

I must say I wouldn't take that chance, but it is up to the individual.

 @Nastybaby It shows her maturity...they have not got to the real juicy drama yet, according to Cynthia. Who knows, they may all talk behind the scenes, how would the viewers know? This show was taped MONTHS ago...there are photos and footage on Kandi's Instagram of her hanging out with Kenya and Marlo while promoting the new season...there are NO pictures of Nene, which means they are obviously not friends at all outside of the show.

 Realistically, Kandi did the same thing to Kenya by butting into Kenya's business regarding her texting with Apollo.  And don't get me wrong, I like Kandi, but that was none of Kandi's business.  What difference is it going to make in Kandi's life who Kenya decides to text???  Just keeping it 100!!

 Hell! Kenya is definitely FINE! no doubt about it. I dare anyone to argue against that point. But down to earth? she just flat out ain't! Lost in outer space, psychotic, skitzoid? yes indeed! Yall better quit acting like yall don't know, taking bout hanging out with that chick and laughing and carrying on. Mess around and end up on the six o'clock news fooling with Kenya!

 @conishkee  Exactly, they ALL jump into her business. Since she is a cast member, she has a right to comment on the show just like all the others...don't get mad and hate...
