Bravotv.com: Was the road trip as bad as you thought?
Kenya Moore: Everyone knows I’m the world’s worst road tripper! But it actually wasn’t that bad. Matt loves to drive everywhere, and I’m the complete opposite. We had fun talking and bonding. The worst thing that happened was Twirl got car sick and kept whining and vomiting. We were both happy to get out of that truck.
Bravotv.com: Were you surprised Matt's sister was giving you a hard time?
KM: I was more surprised that it wasn’t his mother. Matt’s sister is older than him and he is the baby. I wasn’t expecting her to be so direct with her concerns. I do, however, appreciate her love for her brother and wanting the best for him. With that said, most mothers love me, but I was skeptical of her acceptance because of our large age difference. As such, I didn’t think she would approve of our relationship.
Bravotv.com: How was Matt's family reunion? Do you think it brought you closer?
KM: I adore Matt’s family and his mother could not have been nicer toward me. Speaking as a woman who doesn’t have a relationship with my mother, his mom made me feel like I was one of her daughters. It was a beautiful feeling. Matt has been very open with me about wanting marriage. Seeing his family and experiencing the love they have for each other made me want to be a part of it.
