Bravotv.com: Why did you think Kim was being shady with her beatless brunch?
Kenya Moore: We’ve seen Kim speak about the “group” in a negative way before. She told Phaedra that everyone had their breasts out at my Kenya Moore Hair Care launch party and she “missed class,” thereby calling us classless or trashy. She quipped before that we all looked like we were always on a red carpet and she often makes disapproving faces and comments while she is with us.
I’ve had a little too much of Kim’s self-righteous behavior. Her "beatless brunch" could have been to celebrate our natural beauty, which I think all of the women have, however, when her voice message specifically stated: “We need to be reminded what make up is for,” that is when the message was no longer positive for me and more judgmental and accusatory. Translation: “You all wear too much makeup and you need to learn to wear less, because I do not approve of how you look”.
BEING A QUEEN
I am a queen in more ways than one and I’m very comfortable in my own skin whether that is in red carpet makeup of none at all -- flaws and all, it’s in my blood. As I stated, as descendants of Nubian Queens such as Queen Nefertiti, I fully own who I am and will not allow another woman to make me feel lesser than. No woman should be made to feel as though another women does not approve of the way she looks whether it be her dress, makeup, hairstyle, Spanx, surgeries, etc… It’s all self-expression and to each his own. Further, Kim is the last person to tell someone how to look. You cannot encourage anyone to celebrate their natural beauty having had multiple cosmetic procedures and while wearing atrocious wigs made of fake hair... Nothing natural about that at all. Don’t judge lest ye be judged.
Bravotv.com: Did you feel like you got support from the 'Wives when you opened up about your family reunion?
KM: I did during the brunch; however I was deeply offended that someone would state in their interview that "I cannot give love because I haven’t been loved." I’ve had an army of people love and cherish me my entire life, it just wasn’t my mother. I may have a hard exterior sometimes because I am very guarded, but when I do love someone, there is nothing more powerful and meaningful, because I know what it is like to feel abandoned. So in some ways I may over compensate in that area.
Bravotv.com: Were you surprised that Kim didn't want to co-produce Cynthia's commercial?
KM: Kim believes she is too good for this group and too good to work with me. I guess she isn’t too good to need Cynthia's check.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME
Thank you all for your many birthday wishes! I had a great time with Matt (@livefastfitness) and he gave me two beautiful new puppies I named King and Twirl. I also had a celebratory dinner. Thank you Cynthia,NeNe Leakes, and Sheree, my family and friends, and of course Matt for making it epic. And we all missed Kandi. (Side note: Phaedra couldn’t make it because she was too busy trying to come up with new ways to put me down for no reason).
Love you all!
Celebrate! Life is too short.
