There seem to be a few love triangles and bad feelings on the set of this season of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta and new girl on the block, Kenya Moore appears to the be the common denominator in them all. In Episode 2, Kenya is so devastated to learn that her on-again-off-again boyfriend of two years, Walter used to have a thing for and even went as far as to ask out her co-star, Kandi Burruss, that she looks at Walter as if he just told her he was a puppy-killer and has to excuse herself from the table. She then proceeds to order her food to go because the news has caused her to lose her appetite. Although the news certainly wasn’t as serious as Kenya made it out to be, many were still left wondering what the actual connection was between Kandi and Walter and whether or not the two had actually dated.
Early yesterday, Kandi took to the Bravo TV blog to address the drama and put an end to speculations.
I thought the whole thing with Walter admitting he asked me out was a little awkward. Especially now that he and Todd are cool.
It was weird for me to hear Walter say it because, truth be told, he never asked me out himself. It was always our mutual friend asking me out for him. So I never heard Walter say out of his own mouth that he wanted to take me out. Back story is that one of Walter’s best friends and one of my best friends are married to each other. They are always having something at their house, so I have ran into Walter many times over the years. In my mind, him asking me out wasn’t anything to talk about, because we never actually went out. It definitely isn’t anything for Kenya to worry about. Moving right along…
Well, that squashes that; however, while we are on the subject of Kenya, other rumors have also been circulating about the former Miss USA. Many felt she was being way too friendly and inappropriately flirting with cast mate Phaedra’s husband, Apollo Nilda, after watching previews and teasers for this season of the show. Moore eventually responded to the accusations on the Tom Joyner Morning Show.
“Let me be the first to say, I’m not interested in anybody’s husband, not Phaedra’s or anybody else’s. You can put that on the record,” she expressed matter-of-factly.
She also went on to state that she felt the scene was taken out of context. Not sure how “out of context” those scenes can be when the trailer clearly shows her talking about how “fine” Apollo is, go-cart racing and playing around in the pool with him, and let us not forget asking Phaedra which two of her friends she would offer up to him. That seems a bit scandalous to me, wouldn’t you agree? And considering how jealous she got when she found out her man used to have the hots for Kandi, you’d think she would have some sort of consideration.
Would you say Kenya is trying to be a bit too chummy with Phaedra’s man?
