‘I Will Forever Be Gone With The Wind Fabulous:’ Kenya Claims She’s Not Stressing The Walter-Porsha Shade

It was only a matter of time before Kenya had to explain why she went all Scarlet O’Hara on everybody during Sunday night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Truthfully though, I can see the resemblance. Like Scarlet, Kenya is totally oblivious as to why she leaves a bad taste in everyone’s mouths and why no one trusts a word that comes out of hers, but in her latest Bravo blog, she calls herself explaining her antics, not only as they pertain to Porsha Stewart, but also her on-camera man, Walter. Here’s what she had to say about her love life:

“I moved to Atlanta around February, for one, hoping to rekindle the relationship I had with Walter. He was still single, said he wanted to have more children, said he could see me as his wife and wanted the same things I did. I moved forward hoping that I could have everything with him. When the RHOA came along in April, he couldn’t have been happier for me and said he didn’t mind our relationship being followed on TV. He intimated to me that he wanted to be married to me and that it would happen soon. I’m always talking about it on the show because he made it seem imminent. It was an exciting time for me.

“NeNe is a good judge of character, which is why we are friends. I think she saw something that I didn’t see or didn’t want to see when we were in Anguilla.

She is really trying to get us to believe she had no clue Walter was a phony, huh? Typically I’m not one to take a man’s side because the entire species has been known to tell women all sorts of lies to get what they want, but I’m not sure Walter wanted anything of what Kenya had to offer — except maybe time on camera. And even the most clueless of women usually knows when a man is just telling her what she wants to hear. Everyone at home knew Walter wasn’t in to her from the first time he appeared on RHOA. She can’t possibly expect us to believe she didn’t put the pieces together until last week can she?

Moving on to the other hot mess in her life, Kenya went on to explain why she got so antebellum turnt up during the argument with Porsha, and as I suspected, she seemed to be more perturbed at Porsha calling her old, rather than a tramp. She wrote:

“Being called old is the last dirty word you can call a woman. The fact is, if we are lucky we will all age graciously with wisdom, grace, and dignity…

[insert random reflection on Connecticut shooting victims]

“When an insecure woman is jealous, immature, spiteful, and/or ignorant, they will always try to tear an accomplished, beautiful woman down in order to feel better about their own lack of success. However, one cannot rewrite history. My legacy is untouchable, and I’m most proud of my professional achievements and accomplishments I have been able to bequeath despite the odds.”…

[insert random ode to Hattie McDaniel.]

“I’m Kenya Moore. I’m 41 and fabulous! My age, race, religion, social economic standing, and marital status are not indicators of my past, present, or future as I too can defy the odds just like Hattie. I am bold. I am humble. I am strong. I am complicated. I am complex. I am vulnerable. I am resilient. I am good. I am honest –That’s what makes me fabulous.

“I will forever be GONE WITH THE WIND FABULOUS. And I hope I can inspire others to be Gone With The Wind fabulous too at any age.

Anyone else feel like Kenya was about to bust into the 2012 version of Phenomenal Woman for a minute? Kenya was doing a whole lot in this post. I can’t say I’d mix the tragedy that is the Sandy Hook massacre with the silliness of women acting on reality TV and then throw in a little Hattie McDaniel to make my point but hey, we all have different hustles.

It’s good to see she’s at least trying to clean up her rep and not continuing the craziness we see on television in  her blogs.  That being said, I’m having a hard time figuring out which side of Kenya is really real. Any guesses?

    Kenya look.like she smell like sweat piss and doo doo..just my opinion tho

  • Princess

    I think Kenya wanted to be a reality star without putting all her business out there. Therefore, she decided to play for the cameras. I think she needs the money and will do anything to get it. She can do better than Walter. All the time she was begging him to marry her she never once said I love you. I think she had a mutual agreement with walter and may not be sticking to it because he just seems bitter.

    I like Kenya. I think that the way she is acting is a result of her childhood. Yes, she is 40 and she needs some counseling – remember her mother was not there and although her aunt raised her, she yearned for her mother. There is no excuse to be immature, but remember, our upbringing has a lot with how we act today. Her lesson may be to learn to love yourself and accept things that you cannot change. All of us learn lessons at different stages in our lives, but the most important thing is that we LEARN. Hopefully, Kenya will see that, once she watches herself on television–we are not perfect, we are human. Also, in Kenya’s defense, she was trying to let the issue go and NeNe brought up the fact that Kenya and Porscha met on bad terms. Now, why would this subject occur? It brought conflict to a peaceful setting. Kenya was also going to let the issue go, but Porscha kept “running her mouth.” Now, Kenya should have handled it better, but let’s not forget the role that Porscha played- talking loud, going to Kenya etc. Lastly, if Porscha wanted Kenya to do the event, she should have DONE HER RESEARCH. She asked Kenya to be apart of the event. Once again, Kenya should have taken the high road BUT you cannot get upset at her for being upset. That’s like you inviting the CEO of a company to an event and calling them the secretary.

    Kenya is Gone With The Wind Crazy!

  • Diam

    First she compares her title to First Lady Obama’s. Now her CT shooting reference? I’m convinced that she will be calling herself “jehovah” in a few weeks. Home girl is delusional!

  • Meyaka

    How can someone so beautiful can be so ugly at the same time.

  • I just saw an episode of ‘The Parkers’ from 1999-2004 where Kenya was a star guest. She has not aged well, at all – been hittin’ that liquor bottle a little too hard.

  • Cakester

    That sense of hers is “gone with the wind!”

  • Mia

    I refuse to watch this isht, but I read all the recaps. As far as Kenya is concerned, she’s sane and we’re the crazy ones! Gotta love it!

  • ChayJau

    Sounds like the ramblings of an old and desperate beauty queen. All that hairspray must have killed some brain cells. And by some I mean a lot….

  • Nikki

    Kenya, darling, I can think of many worse things besides “old” to call a woman! Nene being a good judge of character knows good and well that Kenya and Walter were not a couple.

  • Tamz

    She’s still a scalding hot mess.

  • Jazzy Jay

    I’m sure Kenya, the African country, wants their name back……

  • SheBe

    That chick cray! I remember an old episode of Baisden After Dark where she was on there as a guest on the panel. She was talking that “I wanna be married with children” thing then with the same desperate tone that she has today. Her thirst is BEYOND! Baisden said “you will be future ex wife.” I thought that was funny. Porsha read Ms. Moore like a Dr. Seuss book and Kenya couldn’t handle the heat.

    • Blu

      LMAO…I could agree more on what you said about Porsha reading her like a Dr. Seuss book. I thought Pirsha belonged on the short bus with that 265 days in a year comment but she got some point when she shut Kenya down!

      • SheBe

        Oh yes! Porsha definitely made up lost ground for me during the whole episode.

  • kierah

    Kenya is not an old woman, but she is too old to be this dumb. Why is she learning lessons at 41 that most women learn in their 20s?
    Take a note from Miss Scarlet: As God is my witness, I’ll never act thirsty again!

    • Eggy

      LMAO….@ “I’ll never act thirsty again”….. reply of the week.

    • If she did asked Walter to ‘play’ her husband on the show, then she’s being deliberate with her craziness.

    • KIR12

      Typical good looking black woman who thinks she can wait and get her husband of choice in her 30’s or 40’s. WRONG!!! What in the hell was she doing the last 20 years if she wanted to get married? She could of had her pick of men in her 20’s. Too late hun, she played the field too long and held your cards too long. She can still find a husband but he’s not going too be the good looking baller types she use to pull in her 20’s. Better look for a Geritol Greg type honey.

      • Blu

        My guess is the six proposals she has spoken about ran when they saw CRAZY coming. That’s why she didn’t get married & have children at a younger age.

  • Ms. Kameria

    That ish was too funny
