‘I Was Disappointed None Of My Cast Mates Reached Out’ Kenya Says Housewives Were Insensitive To Her Cancer Scare

During this past Sunday’s episode of “Real Housewives of Atlanta”, cast member Kenya Moore underwent a medical procedure that most women would consider rather traumatic. The former Miss USA was informed by her OB/GYN that a lump was discovered in her breast during her annual examination, which prompted her physician to perform a mammogram. Following the mammogram, two additional lumps were discovered and Kenya was ordered to have a biopsy conducted so that her doctor could asses whether or not the lumps were a result of cancer. Thankfully, the biopsy revealed that the lumps were benign. Although thankful that she received a clean bill of health, Moore recently took to her Bravo TV blog to express how thwarting it was that none of her co-stars reached out to offer an encouraging or comforting word in the wake of her medical ordeal. An excerpt from her post reads:

“I was disappointed when none of my cast mates reached out to me after learning of my ordeal when many viewers did.  Whether or not I am your favorite or least favorite person, the bond that we all have is that we are women first. I’m a woman before I am any other identifying marker such as race, social status, popularity, occupation, or religious background. I am a woman. I am a child of God and I am blessed. With that said, I beg all women to get a mammogram. If you get a call back, GO BACK. BE BRAVE. Early detection is the key to survival.”

Going through a biopsy can be an extremely nerve-wracking experience for anyone.

Would you agree with Kenya? Were the ladies of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” wrong for not reaching out to their fellow co-star after learning of her traumatic experience?

    She needs to put on her big girl panties and move on. I was a docto’rs appointment. Maybe she’ll start treating other a little better since she wants them to do all this reaching out and showing concern for her. Really?!

  • Ebby

    Well, at least she keeps it entertaining! Think about it at least RHOA beat out Honey BB. Before that RHOA was done at the bottom and BRAVO had to find more drama! LOL

  • NikkitaMichelle

    I just saw the episode the other night. Did she tell any of her castmates what she was going through? Who knows to call and check on someone who’s going through something if they don’t know anything about it? As you see all of these women have jobs and families of their own to take care of. My single friends know that I have a lot going on with my family, if they need prayer and we haven’t spoken they send me a text and I make sure to check up on them. Other than Nene who’s in L.A. half the time, who has she tried to befriend?

    I think that whole cancer scare was faked for tv. I think Kenya saw she wasn’t liked much by the fans so at the last minute they inserted this storyline in the show. It just felt so off. Also on the Bravo website and on the RHOA facebook page, it ask if Kenya redeemed herself. Why would having a cancer scare redeem Kenya to fans? It makes no sense. That’s why I think it was faked. Bravo gave themselves away by asking that question.

    Well if you treat people like sh^t, you’re gonna get sh^t back in return.

  • Seriously? You just dissed Phaedra and her husband, you and Portia fight every time you see each other, you are not really in Nene’s circle, Kandi obviously is not very fond of you because she takes Phaedra’s side against you and really the only person who gives you the time of day is Cynthia, who has become so very shady this season. PLUS at the end, you were shown to be completely fine. Um.. you get what you put out in the universe. Dont expect all love and sweetness and light, when you put out the complete opposite.

  • Why would anyone reach out to Kenya when she has repeatedly proven herself to be insincere?

  • me

    I think she’s lying anyway. I don’t believe anything that comes out her mouth.

    • Sunny

      Neither do I. I mean, I know reality TV doesn’t attract the nicest, sanest people, but she is almost cartoonishly unlikeable. Her hair looks kind of rough in the pic, BTW.

  • Meyaka

    Kenya please okay? Please! They don’t like you and you gone with the wind fabulous all over them,so no love lost.

  • Get off my screen Drama Queen!

    • Nikki

      Maybe you should rethink why you clicked.

  • brwngirl

    People always want what they don’t give. Kenya if you were supportive to them they would have returned the love. Don’t dish out negativity and think you’ll get back something different.

    • dddooonnnttt

      Thank you! Like, they don’t her, why would they be nice??

  • telli

    The experience of Kenya’s ordeal is tramatic, I know from experience. I agree with her!

  • Nikki

    I would think Kandi & Nene send flowers and a card. I mean, they aren’t friends but they are cordial.

    But then again, part of me wants to believe that Kenya never told them. I truly feel that Kandi would’ve been nice about it.

    • Lauren Love

      For a biopsy? It’s not like she was admitted to the hospital?

  • realadulttalk

    I wonder if she typed that with a straight face…she can’t be serious. Those women are not her friends…they are on a show together and paid to spend time with each other.

  • dddooonnnttt

    It would be different if it turned out that she was ill, but she wasn’t. She went to a doctors appointment…

    • Nikki

      I do think she has some sort of illness or hormonal imbalance. I close friend of mine went to the Inauguration and saw her there with a light-skinned guy. My friend said that her face, and her skin was in bad shape.

      • dddooonnnttt

        Ok, but she been had that, if its true.

  • kierah

    Was Dumb Dumb supposed to check on you? Surprised Phaedra didn’t leave her husband’s side to bring you some chicken soup? Really?!

  • Kahekili

    These people are being paid to act, not to care about each other.
