Bravotv.com: Were you surprised Peter asked you to host his opening?
Kenya Moore: I host openings and parties all the time, and although Peter and Cynthia are divorcing, I still consider Peter a friend. It's apparent their divorce is amicable, but I still wanted to check with Cynthia first to make sure that it was OK with her.
Bravotv.com: What did you think when you got Matt's texts?
KM: The texts were troubling, and although we weren't together, we were still cordial, which is why I initially didn't mind that Peter invited him.
Bravotv.com: What went through your mind when Matt slapped the driver?
KM: I was shocked, because it happened so fast. I have never seen him strike anyone. I knew he was angry because he drove hours to get there when his ticket was cancelled. After reading his texts, I didn't know his state of mind, so I didn't want any altercation.
When Matt approached the car, I didn't think it would end well. He looked inside the car and then the driver rolled the window up on him while his head was still inside. It happened so fast. I was relieved that he walked away and it didn't escalate.
It's hard to watch these scenes and was even harder for me to live through them as this was a man I was in love with. Even though I have not spoken to Matt in a while, he came to my house when he heard I was possibly hurt by trespassers last week. I wasn't home, but his mother reached out to me for him to make sure I was not hurt.
Even though I would never make any excuses for violent or verbally abusive behavior, this show of genuine care has made me see he is not a monster. But be clear, no woman should accept any person who makes them feel threatened or nervous in any way. I feel justified in my decision to leave the relationship. With that said, I know that he has been getting help. I pray that he continues his path of healing.
