If you’re a fan of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, you’ve probably become very familiar with Kenya Moore, the resident desperate woman who, as “Gone-With-The-Wind-Fabulous” as she is, still hasn’t found her Prince Charming. She’s made it known on almost every episode of Season five that she is more than ready to be married and have children, pressuring her poor [faux] boyfriend Walter to put a ring on it.
While there is nothing wrong with knowing what you want and going after it, there is a difference between actively pursuing romance and desperately trying to find a husband. In case you don’t already know, desperation isn’t hot by any means. As a woman who is knocking on 40 herself, I understand her level of concern – especially as it pertains to having children. But pressuring yourself and others into marriage can cause more harm than good if you’re not careful. If the following describes your approach to looking for a relationship with marriage in mind, it’s time to slow down and take it easy before you find yourself with the wrong guy, or pushing the right one away.
If you hadn’t already noticed, Kenya Moore is going to be a handFUL on this season of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” Interestingly after telling The YBF that she hopes her “presence [on the show] will raise the bar” — whatever that means — the reality TV newbie took some very low shots at her castmate Cynthia.
Writing on her Bravo TV blog, Kenya called herself clearing up her behavior at the Jet Beauty photo shoot, but what she really ended up doing was explaining why she thinks she’s earned the right to be rude to the girls trying out and why doesn’t see eye to eye with Cynthia. Here’s what she wrote:
“[I]t’s obvious Cynthia does not read, watch television, and has been under a rock when I exploded on the scene years ago. I made history being crowned the second black woman to win Miss USA and I was fifth place in The Miss Universe pageant. Let me refresh hers or anyone else’s sluggish memory…
“If you don’t know, you better ask somebody. I’m also that girl whose been on the covers of and modeled for over 30 magazines from Essence to Real Health to Maxim magazine. In fact, the very audition she held for the Jet Magazine Beauty of the Week, I was chosen as a Jet Beauty. I also have a Jet Magazine cover. Do you have a Jet Magazine cover, Cynthia? NO, you don’t. Additionally, I’m that girl who has had multiple endorsements including my very own Pantene hair commercial, print ads, cosmetic campaigns, as well as numerous fashion layouts. Yep me. However, models usually retire around 30-years-old. Even though Cynthia is a beautiful woman, at 45, maybe Cynthia should retire her dusty old wigs and worn out makeup brushes that are just as worn out as her welcome mat from the modeling industry.”
I’m no fan of Cynthia’s but at 45 she’s still landing modeling campaigns. In fact I just caught her in an INC ad in Glamour this past weekend. As for Kenya, she’s still trying to remind people of things she did 20 years ago. It’s all fine and well to have that success under your belt but she needs to turn it down just a notch. Her face might be cute but the ‘tude is not.
“I immediately bump heads with one of the other Housewives,” she said. “[Cynthia] was being disrespectful and overstepping her boundaries, so I had to let her know that that wasn’t acceptable to me. It resulted in security being called.”Sounds like the former Miss USA didn’t just use words to “let her know.” Unfortunately, it also seems like she’s a little proud of being an ish starter this season.
Though none of us knows what it’s like to interact with these women on a personal level, one all-day marathon of RHOA immediately tells you what you’re getting yourself into participating in a show like this. It goes without saying that many people don’t understand what motivates others to join this cast, particularly at this stage in the game, but 41-year-old Kenya claims the opportunity sort of fell into her lap after she relocated from Hollywood to Atlanta to pursue a relationship.“Trust me, it is full of drama,” she added. “I am in the middle of most of it, and probably cause most of it. I went through a lot of ups and downs with the women on the show.”
“I’ve been successful in my career as a producer and actor, but [I have] no husband and no children,” she said. “I took a leap of faith and moved to be closer to the guy that I was seeing. The show came about, and I thought it would be an amazing opportunity for me to step outside of my comfort zone and take advantage of all the opportunities that a show like that presents.”Given that Nene is the only person from the ATL cast who seems to have capitalized on any of her reality fame, Kenya may have taken a bigger leap of faith than she thinks. But apparently she’s okay lying in the bed she’s mad thus far.
“My fans have been kind, but this is a whole new world,” she said. “So far, people have been saying that I’m their favorite, and they haven’t seen one episode!”Well here’s a snippet of an episode to help you decide. Looks like security may have been called more than once this season. Thoughts?
