Fo’real Kenya?! “Cynthia Should Retire Her Dusty Old Wigs And Worn Out Makeup Brushes”

If you hadn’t already noticed, Kenya Moore is going to be a handFUL on this season of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” Interestingly after telling The YBF that she hopes her “presence [on the show] will raise the bar” — whatever that means — the reality TV newbie took some very low shots at her castmate Cynthia.

Writing on her Bravo TV blog, Kenya called herself clearing up her behavior at the Jet Beauty photo shoot, but what she really ended up doing was explaining why she thinks she’s earned the right to be rude to the girls trying out and why doesn’t see eye to eye with Cynthia. Here’s what she wrote:

“[I]t’s obvious Cynthia does not read, watch television, and has been under a rock when I exploded on the scene years ago. I made history being crowned the second black woman to win Miss USA and I was fifth place in The Miss Universe pageant. Let me refresh hers or anyone else’s sluggish memory…

“If you don’t know, you better ask somebody. I’m also that girl whose been on the covers of and modeled for over 30 magazines from Essence to Real Health to Maxim magazine. In fact, the very audition she held for the Jet Magazine Beauty of the Week, I was chosen as a Jet Beauty. I also have a Jet Magazine cover. Do you have a Jet Magazine cover, Cynthia? NO, you don’t.  Additionally, I’m that girl who has had multiple endorsements including my very own Pantene hair commercial, print ads, cosmetic campaigns, as well as numerous fashion layouts. Yep me.  However, models usually retire around 30-years-old. Even though Cynthia is a beautiful woman, at 45, maybe Cynthia should retire her dusty old wigs and worn out makeup brushes that are just as worn out as her welcome mat from the modeling industry.”

I’m no fan of Cynthia’s but at 45 she’s still landing modeling campaigns. In fact I just caught her in an INC ad in Glamour this past weekend. As for Kenya, she’s still trying to remind people of things she did 20 years ago. It’s all fine and well to have that success under your belt but she needs to turn it down just a notch. Her face might be cute but the ‘tude is not.

    Kenya’s a washed up clown.

  • not impressed

    This fool is bragging about a Jet magazine cover….Chile who reads Jet Magazine??? Is that thing still being published?LOL. Have a seat girl.

  • nursej

    Idk about the face being all that cute either.

  • ilovemovies2

    Memo to Keyna-childe your look good on the outside but you need to clean up your inside beauty. You look good on your own without dissing your colleague. You know God doesn’t like ugly.

    • ilovemovies2

      I mean “you” not your -oops

  • she is just playing her role people my goodness. y’all just as catty as those women that are getting paid to be catty! we all know reality shows have very little to do with reality, and a lot to do with drama!

  • almondebrown

    I will say this, from the teaser about Kenya’s childhood (she claims her mother doesn’t acknowledge her) the self proclaimed 5th Runner Up clearly has emotional issues that she needs to address with a professional. ‘Derogatory slurs are ALWAYS and outward projection of one’s own poisonous self-loathing.”

  • CECE

    Uh she really isn’t even all that cute. She has vampire teeth and her skin is bad. Cynthia is a certified banger even at 45. She is such a h8r!

  • deschl

    didn’t her old man ask her if she had taken her meds, pretty girl ugly personality, she also appeared to be flirting with phaedra’s husband, b yotch you deserve a beat down

  • JustSayin

    This is just pathetic. Kenya Moore is only acting this way so she can stir up some drama. It is just sad that she can’t find a way to make money in a positive light. She is okay with destroying her name for Bravo? Really? Girl… I guess.

  • iluvm

    Sorry Kenya is not cute at all. Cynthia is smashing Kenya is the looks and attitude department. Cynthia carries herself like a classy woman!

  • Tamz

    She needs not throw shade, posing like the horse from the “Shrek” series in that pic…girl forget having a seat, have a store full of couches.

  • kierah

    Kenya is damn fool! If Kenya’s career was sizzling like fish grease, why would she be on RHOA? It’s been a loooong time since her name was on anybody’s lips (besides readers of Smooth Magazine).
    Not cute hating on a woman with a REAL modeling career…

  • lady30

    Embarrassing to say the least. When i saw Kenya talk down to those girls at a casting call I was in shock. I did not know that she was so insecure smh and to top it off she had the nerve to have security. To think someone with an enormous fake but, fake boobs, and botox injections in her acne riddled face was hating so bad on young beautiful women it was sad sad sad. I have to say I always admired her but now I am embarrassed that she earned that crown after Vanessa Williams, there should’ve been another dark skinned sister repping Ms. USA on RHOA and not this has been who has stooped to half naked booty poses in black men magazines at 40 that’s something you do to get a step up in the game not when you old and trying to remain relevant. Shameful smh we gots to do better

  • Nikkita Michelle

    Does Kenya not realize that Cynthia is only 4 years older than her. She’s no spring chicken herself. I guess Kenya had to join RHOA for everyone to learn that she is a hoodrat. I haven’t seen her in movie since Deliver Us from Eva and she was only in that for like 5 minutes.

  • She needs to chill the eff out, before she end up like Nicci off the TV ONE ‘Divas’ show…

  • TeahMonae

    As Cynthia stated on the show, She wouldn’t be caught dead on some of the magazine covers that Kenya has been on. While Kenya has literally showed her a$$ on Maxim and King Magazine covers (along with every other “urban model”), Cynthia has graced the cover of Essence and been featured in editorials in Vogue, Glamour, Elle and Vanity Fair. Not to mention all of the fashion campaigns Cynthia has done for Neimans, Saks, Lord and Taylor, etc.etc.etc. Or the many runways she was walked in NY, Paris or Milan. Kenya, maybe this is your way of creating drama in hopes of making yourself a “standout” on the show, but you are only making yourself look stupid. You could have taken this opportunity to build a brand for yourself but now, you will only be a joke. Oh and a piece of advice: You’ve done a great job maintaining your body, but you might want to concentrate on your skin now. Close up camera shots of your face reveal craters that makeup can’t hide.

    • Angelsmoon

      “Urban Model”! LOL! Love it!

  • SunshineBlossom

    Brande girl SPEAK!!!! *powtry finger clap* Kenya needs to stop, because lest I be mistaken, she isn’t a spring chicken either. And for someone to flaunt about 5th place, chick that means you didn’t win the Universe, so have a seat in the 5th row from nosebleed. I will give credit, she is still attractive, but she really needs to step up with some CURRENT jobs other than being a “housewife” in order to judge. I still haven’t seen her I’m another cover *looks at Jet Magazine and sees someone else on cover*

  • NaturalJem

    As black women/sisters, why can’t we just support and compliment one another for our achievements instead of hating and comparing ourselves?!!! Shame on you Kenya!!!

  • eyeconic1

    Girl.. have a seat. Guess that inner beauty didn’t catch up to the outer beauty
    If you have to REMIND people who you are and what you once did. Then you are a non-mfin factor. Yes, you were those things and good for you. Your attitude sucks. I did like her BEFORE.

  • baddvixentype

    ” I made history being crowned the SECOND black woman to win Miss USA..” No boo boo, you were part of history….20 year old history. Second is NOT first. Have several seats!

    • SunshineBlossom

      *church praise–catches holy ghost* yes lawd preach girl!!!!!!

  • Ann

    Kenya needs to sit down somewhere. She is working overtime to continue to make all black women as we have a attitude and angry. What is she trying to prove by talking about Cynthia in that way? I will not be watching this show.

  • Guest

    Kenya nothing good will come of you being on this show. You seem insecure, bitter and jealous. If Cynthia still wants to model what’s it to you. People who live in glass houses. I use to like Kenya not anymore. And to top it all off your’e not even married at least Cynthia is a RHWOA.

  • Negress

    Maybe she has to refresh everybody’s memory because that was before the internet blew up.

    • SunshineBlossom

      *DEAD*!!!!!! Girl that is so true!!! As a matter of fact the only time I remember her was from when she was on that episode of Martin.

    • Lexi

      lmao yes exactly!

    • Tamz


    • almondebrown

      As Lenethia would say, “BOOP!”

  • RJA

    I can’t believe I used to look up to her 20 years ago. She is a H.A.M. I knew reality tv was gonna make me not like her

    • Negress

      She’s a lot like her role in Deliver Us From Eva, an insecure pretty girl.
