‘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?
