Kenya's So-Called Eviction

Kenya opens up about her housing nightmare and puts the text message controversy to rest.

MY SO-CALLED EVICTION

My former landlord Conya Dillon Weems is the epitome of a vindictive, cold hearted, evil person with nothing to lose, and I finally have justice! When Conya engaged in her despicable conduct, my attorney filed suit for defamation of character, invasion of privacy, and other now substantiated claims, and the judge recently issued his ruling. The judge found that when I didn’t move out on Conya’s 2 week demand, she threatened to evict me, and then started a smear campaign with the media by furnishing them with lies of late rent and a plethora of other fallacies. I was relieved that the judge found that I was NOT evicted as widely erroneously reported, and awarded me over $10,000 for damages against Conya for defamation of character and invasion of privacy. Stay tuned, Conya’s campaign continues…

AN ACTRESS WITHOUT AN AUDIENCE

I find that when there is an audience, some people tend to overreact making it difficult to actually get to the crux of the real issue. I wanted to talk to NeNe one on one to make sure we had an understanding on where we both stood. We may not ever agree on what the proper protocol was for her regarding her wedding invitation to my ex, but at least we cleared the air. Sometimes there is just an impasse. But I will always speak my truth when I care about someone or the relationship.MAMA SAID THERE WOULD BE DAYS LIKE THIS

Mama Joyce obviously loves Kandi and has some legitimate concerns. I wish I had a mother in my life that is so passionate about protecting me. However, Kandi is a smart girl and will financially protect herself. I believe Joyce also wants to protect her heart.  But at 37, it’s Kandi’s life to lead and she deserves to be happy. I hope they can come together as a family. A good man is hard to find. Let’s hope Joyce can open her heart to Todd and vet him in a more productive manner.



BEAUTIFUL “BLOATED” CYNTHIA

As gorgeous as Cynthia is, abdominal bloating will never distract from her beauty. I have suffered from fibroids many years and had to have surgery to remove them several years ago. I encouraged her to have them removed and I’m glad she has Peter’s support in doing so.PHAEDRA THE GREAT FAKE

I have been the unwilling recipient of Phaedra’s unrelenting lies from last season. She called me every name in the book, lied, and called me an alcoholic, bipolar, fake, amongst other cruel monikers. I pushed back with my own insults. We are both responsible for attacking each other. So she can’t pick and choose what insults were acceptable to her or not.

When Phaedra gets you in her crosshairs, she shoots to kill and she is the dirtiest player in this game. Regardless of what she claims, I NEVER OFFERED SEX, ORAL OR OTHERWISE, TO APOLLO. Clearly she must be a less than stellar attorney, since her claims are based on her motive to throw dirt on my name and not the facts. The FACTS are, I immediately showed my phone during the reunion. The facts are, I have never offered nor been offered sex by Apollo. The fact is, I have nothing to hide or lie about with regard to him. Additionally, I could have retaliated for the lies Apollo tried to spew in reaction to when I suggested that he discontinue texting me, however, the truth will be made crystal clear very soon.

 

Regardless of how I feel about Phaedra, I would not intentionally disrespect her union. And for that I did apologize for her feeling that way. If there is anyone a married woman would want around their husbands, it would be me. I don’t want any married man, never have, never will.

Until the next time,
Kenya

Claudia: This Group Should Reserve Judgment

Claudia Jordan thinks the other 'Wives shouldn't be so willing to believe rumors. 

Bravotv.com: How shocked were you when Cynthia shared the rumor about Chocolate?

Claudia Jordan: Well I really don't know Phaedra that much to comment on her personal life, but from the little bit I am privy to, I was surprised to hear about an alleged affair considering the extreme criticism that Kenya got. At the end of the day only two people know what really did or did not happen, and I would love for this group to reserve judgment on everyone until there is confirmation. But I think a precedent had been set a long time ago, so that has opened the door to where we are now. I think it's easy to believe something negative about someone in the group, because in the past it's been shown that it takes very little actual evidence or proof for some to jump on that bandwagon. Hopefully we can get to a place where we afford each other the same benefit of the doubt that they may one day give us. At the end of the day there should be a protocol that we all follow and it should be applied to everyone. Until then I suspect we may continue to have a problem. But I am hopeful. Perhaps a lot of the drama in this group is because there are so many unresolved issues. And that combined with all the double standards in place is a sure fire recipe for disaster. I still have hope though. Again, not to have everyone be besties, but just being able to co-exist in the same space would be a major accomplishment with these ladies.

 

Bravotv.com: What were you thinking when Phaedra blew up at Kenya?

CJ: I thought it was silly and out of character. But I am glad that Phaedra had enough good sense to not actually hit Kenya. We don't need another physical altercation in this group. Again, we are all supposed to be mature ladies, so with that being said, I think the majority of us have a pretty good grasp of the English language and should be able to talk anything out without resorting to violence. Hitting each other is low class, childish, and ignorant behavior, and I'm so glad that Phaedra didn't really go there.

 

Bravotv.com: Were you surprised when Phaedra walked out?

CJ: Although this has nothing to do with me, I am around these ladies and a witness to all the shenanigans, but from what I've gathered, I wasn't surprised that Phaedra walked out. That seems to be a recurring theme in this group when things get uncomfortable. But at the same time, I am glad she did. If you ever feel the urge to put hands on someone and you are done talking, I think the best thing to do is excuse yourself and leave the situation without adding any more inflammatory language to the mix.

I would like to say that a lot of these issues in this group of course started way before I came around, but being here and seeing things with my own eyes has definitely been enlightening. It tends to get confusing as to what is acceptable and unacceptable behavior in this group, because there are clearly double standards. So in some cases it seems like it's OK to bring up sensitive information in front of the entire group, then in other cases it's not OK -- seems like it all depends on whom it's about. In a perfect world I wouldn't expect for us not to spill tea -- I mean that's what we do -- but if folks expect to be pulled aside to be asked about a rumor or some "tea," then I would hope they would abide by that rule and extend the same courtesy. That's all. Because the way it is now is causing far too much confusion, and as long as there is confusion and unfairness, there is going to be conflict. I've never been around so many arguments, so much shadiness and mudslinging in my life. And especially not since I graduated high school back in the '90s! Maybe there is a way we can get us to a place where we can co-exist peacefully. Hey, a girl can dream can't she?

Again, I want to thank all the viewers that tune in weekly to The Real Housewives of Atlanta. I just returned from Charlotte, North Carolina where I was making a few appearances at CIAA and the love and support I got from hundreds of people that wanted to take pictures and talk about the show; it was amazing! So many people told me they love what I'm bringing to RHOA and I just wanted to say thank you to any of them that may be reading this. The show is loved by so many and I feel we have a responsibility to entertain and hopefully inspire. We've got a lot of the season left and I hope the fans will be happy with how everything turns out! Love you guys!
