If you watched Sunday’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, I’m sure you were just as annoyed by all the yelling Kenya Moore was doing as we were, but then again, she had reason to be a little peeved.
The women were supposed to meet up near NeNe’s place promptly at 11 a.m. so they could eat together, and then get on a bus to head to Savannah for their girls trip. While NeNe’s friend Mynique and Moore were on time, the rest of the ladies creeped to their destination, with the last woman, Phaedra, coming in at 2 p.m. That’s right, it wasn’t even the morning anymore.
NeNe was so upset by this that she had to separate herself from the situation for a little bit, and in that time, Moore decided to become the angry ringleader, and scolded the women for being late and having tired excuses for taking their sweet time to show up. Eventually, she would get so riled up (and start making some over-the-top demands) that she would end up in a screaming match with Kandi Burruss.
Well, Moore decided to explain her behavior, and her anger, and did so on her Bravo blog this week. She says she was directly impacted by the group’s tardiness and couldn’t hold back:
I’m a consummate professional and was always taught being on time is being early. I just moved into my new home and it’s at least 45 minutes away from NeNe. I had plenty to do to set up my new home, including unpacking. My closet is still a mess and there were tons of things I could do with 3 additional hours to spare if I had them.
When planning on being anyplace, naturally you plan ahead when there is traffic, babies to account for, stops to make, etc. I admit my pet peeve is waiting on someone. I pride myself on being on time. I realize you cannot always be prompt every single time, but with these particular “ladies” it is commonplace that they are always late. Being late while traveling takes it to another level of contempt, and being 2-3 hours late is beyond inconsiderate and down right disrespectful.
Although it wasn’t my trip, I was affected by the women’s bad manners. I agree with Kandi, my delivery was strong, but no one apologized nor had any valid reasons for being late so my tongue-lashing was unleashed.
What do you think? Does she make good points or was she still out of line for the way she talked to the ladies? Share your thoughts!
