Kenya Moore: There Aren’t Many Eligible Black Bachelors For Black Women To Choose From

Whether you believe she exaggerated her relationship with “Millionaire Matchmaker” beau James Freeman or not, we can probably agree that Kenya Moore’s last dating experience was a complete disaster. Weeks after the fiasco, the former pageant queen spoke to Hello Beautiful about Black women who are down with the swirl and why she believes options are so limited when sisters choose to exclusively date within their race.

“For Black women, we just have to be open because there’s not a lot of eligible bachelors, that are Black, for us to choose from anymore,” she explained.

Moore went on to refer to statistics that suggest that the dating pool for Black women shrinks significantly after you subtract Black men who are gay, unemployed, convicts and those who are interested in women of other races.

“If you take away the ones that are gay, in jail, this is a real issue. Statistics show why we don’t have the choices. You take the ones that are gay, in jail, don’t have a job, the ones that are already married and the ones that are dating and marrying outside our race, what do you have left? You don’t have much to choose from.”

For this reason, the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star encourages interracial dating.

“The nicest thing is that you have options.”

Tonight your chocolate dreams will come true on screen as Robert Ri’chard, Tyson Beckford, Darren Dewitt Henson, and more fine brothers of brown hue take it all off in the film being pegged as a Black “Magic Mike,” “Chocolate City.” The film stars more fine men than a little bit alongside Vivica Fox, who plays Ri’chard’s on-screen mama, so when she came by the office with her movie son and Henson we had to ask her how she handled being around all that chocolate on set.

More than that, we got a little personal with Miss Fox and delved into her dating life — past and present — whether she still has plans to adopt, and what she thinks about archnemesis Kenya Moore’s latest relationship flub. We don’t want to give it all away here, but just know the words “toxic trick” were used and the level of shade was unprecedented. Check out the video above and let us know what you think.

Patti Stanger Breaks Silence On Kenya Moore’s Married Ex: “He Was Single”

Now that we know Kenya Moore and James Freeman are dunzo because he married another woman, many are wondering what Patti Stanger has to say. We were kind of wondering the same thing, considering that she’s the one who introduced Moore and Freeman.

Extra TV’s AJ Calloway recently caught up with the “Millionaire Matchmaker” star at NBC upfronts, and she says that there was no funny business on her end because Freeman was as single as a dollar bill when she introduced him to Kenya. Stanger explains:

“He was single when he shot the show which was in November, they basically dated, they broke up, he did not date his old girlfriend and marry her, Wendy Williams got that wrong, he met a new girl in January and he ended up marrying her.”

She went on to say that marriage was Freeman’s goal when he appeared on the show, which explains why he married his new wife Jaimi Gregory so quickly after meeting her.

“It was very fast, he was marriage minded and the bottom line is long distance relationships are tough,” she continued. “If you don’t get exclusive and get monogamy, anything can happen.”

Moore, on the other hand, told Calloway that she’s quite confident that there was some overlap between her relationship with Freeman and his relationship with Gregory. According to the former pageant queen, she got together with the real estate broker for her birthday in late January 2015. As you’ll recall from our post earlier this week, Freeman’s wife says that they met on Match.com in December 2014.

“We did the show in November and there’s evidence of me being out, and [having] birthday dinners together. My birthday was at the end of January, so that’s pretty clear, but it is what it is,” Moore explained.

It looks like Kenya has a point and an actual receipt to prove the overlap, which you can check out below. However, it remains unclear whether or not she was in an exclusive and committed relationship with Freeman.

Wife Of Kenya Moore’s “Boyfriend” Speaks Out: “It Doesn’t Feel Good To Be Put In This Position”

Less than 24 hours after Kenya Moore took to Instagram and cried wolf about being deceived by her now married “ex,” major holes are being poked into her story.

As we reported yesterday, Moore released a statement claiming that James Freeman married another woman one week after their episode of “Millionaire Matchmaker” aired. Her statement read:

Unfortunately, I just learned today that the man I met and fell in love with from “Millionaire Matchmaker” was married a week after the show aired. I am astounded and devastated to have learned of this news VIA social media as opposed to from him directly. However, I still believe in love and my heart remains open to the man God has for me. I wish him well.

Now, I’m no Kenya Moore fan, but I can honestly say that I felt bad for her after hearing the news. But from the looks of it, I may have offered my sympathy prematurely. Freeman’s wife, Jaimi Gregory is speaking out and according to the newlywed, Moore’s little innocent act is a smoking pile of you-know-what.

First of all, Gregory explained that Moore never had a serious relationship with her husband. Secondly, she says that she met Freeman after he filmed the episode with Moore.

“James was on ‘Millionaire Matchmaker’ in September [2014] and I met him in December. We met on Match.com and three months later we were engaged,” she told Radar Online. “Then on Good Friday, April 3, 2015 we got married. We just knew right away that we were in love.”

She adds that while Freeman did not initially tell her of his “Millionaire Matchmaker” appearance, he came clean once the commercials began to air.

“[He told me that he] totally forgot he even did the show and so when the commercials started airing he told me all about it.”

As for the nature of his brief courtship with Kenya, Gregory had this to say:

“He said he went on two or three dates after the show aired with Kenya. He told me they just kissed and nothing else. He said she just wasn’t the right person for him, but he wished her the best.”

According to Gregory, communication between Moore and Freeman stopped after they met, but two weeks ago, Moore began reaching out to him again.

“Kenya wrote to him saying that they should celebrate since their ratings were so high,” she said. “But he told her that he had met someone and fell in love so it wasn’t appropriate for him to talk with her anymore.”

Kenya, who was reportedly unhappy with his response, informed Freeman that she was displeased by his actions.

“Kenya wrote to him and told him that he hurt her brand. Of course he didn’t respond to her. But a little more than a week ago she reached out again and told him she needed a favor. When he asked what it was she told him she needed to talk to him in person,” Gregory claimed. “He didn’t want to do that so he didn’t respond.”

Gregory says that her husband was reluctant about meeting with Moore because “he told her he was seeing somebody. She knew he was seeing somebody. She was not respecting him anymore.”

She adds that she was blown away to learn that the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star released a statement claiming that she didn’t know Freeman was involved with another woman.

“It doesn’t feel good to be put in this position. James was very clear with his boundaries,” Gregory claimed. “She wasn’t respecting him. This was obviously a publicity stunt. I know it was.”

In the event that Gregory and Freeman are being 100% truthful regarding this situation, it would be safe to assume that Miss Kenya needs professional help. But at this point, who can really call it? This situation is messy anyway you try to flip it.

So far, the former beauty queen has yet to respond to these allegations.

“I Am Astounded And Devastated”: Kenya Moore Finds Out Her “Millionaire Matchmaker” Boo Is Actually Married

Remember how we told you in March that Kenya Moore was still going strong with the handsome man she met on Millionaire Matchmaker? Well, unfortunately, things have taken an unexpected turn in their relationship. He’s married, and the Real Housewives of Atlanta star allegedly found out on social media.

During Moore’s Millionaire Matchmaker episode, Patti Stanger hooked her up with James Freeman, a former model, and alleged divorcée. The two had a strong connection from the moment they locked eyes on each other, and every time Moore was asked about where things stood between them after the show, she would blush. She gushed over him after the episode finally aired while introducing him to her fans and followers:

“Sometimes you can spend your whole life looking for Prince Charming when a King arrives. Thank you @pattistanger and @cynthiabailey10 and my fans for your love and support and desire for my happiness. #matchmaker #KingJames #FriendsFirst #MillionaireMatchmaker

Sadly, Moore took to social media today to inform fans, followers and well-wishers that her relationship has already come to an end. According to a “statement from Kenya Moore,” Freeman was out here living a lie.

And TheShadeRoom tracked down a picture of Freeman and his alleged bride, Jaimi, which you can see below.

I’m struggling with a little skepticism here. (So while dating her, he really found time to run off and marry someone else? Well, if Peter Gunz can get away with it, anybody can.) But I’m disappointed for Moore if this guy truly led her to believe that he was available and falling for her. That’s an opportunist trying to get on for you.

Let’s hope that she will be able to move forward and not let this situation sour her outlook on love (and that this isn’t just something that will be used as a storyline for RHOA season eight…).

Kenya Moore

Shortly after releasing the trailer for her new television pilot, “Life Twirls On,” Kenya Moore debuted episode one of the potential series.

The 25-minute video includes multiple Moore HairCare commercials, a canceled wedding, and a dildo. Lol, go figure.

As previously reported, the series follows the life of Kenya Brown after she calls off her wedding to her college sweetheart. Check out a synopsis of the series below.

The Brown sisters are each at different crossroads in their lives as they struggle to navigate their new and often uncomfortable living arrangement while dealing with their daily deep-seated family issues, new relationships and ever-evolving life changes, and personal battles.

The middle Brown sister, Kenya marries her former college sweetheart. Soon after catching him in a compromising position with her younger THOTish sister. Nearly suffering from a nervous breakdown, their Aunt Lorraine intercedes and forces them to temporarily move in with Kenya in her mansion to work through their family issues.

Although reluctant, Aunt Lori has a way of getting what she wants as they all both fear and respect the matriarch of the family after their mother passed away 10 years ago. The older sister Robin is forced to be the therapist but is often the pot-stirrer interjecting her off-beat brand of therapy.

Kenya discovers she may have been hasty with judging the actions and motives of her younger sister. The family comes to realize that they need more than a week to solve their issues and need each other’s love and support more than they realized.

Watch “Life Twirls On” below. Are you trying to see this on television?

Back in February, we told you that Janet Hubert accused Kenya Moore of owing her money. As you may have heard, Hubert appeared in the sitcom pilot for Moore’s potential television series, “Life Twirls On.” After months of silence, Moore finally addressed the allegations in a statement released to The YBF. According to Moore, Hubert has been paid for her services. She explains:

There have been numerous false allegations made from Janet Hubert regarding non– payment and most recently criminal activity for her work on the TV pilot Life Twirls On. Although Miss Hubert had been issued a total of 4 checks for her work since November 2014, SAG/AFTRA has officially determined that Moore Vision Media does not owe Miss Hubert any additional payment and all claims have been settled.

We regret Miss Hubert felt it necessary to make personal attacks by slandering the producers, however, we echo the sentiment of the producers of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and wish Miss Hubert well in her future endeavors.

Life Twirls On premieres Friday, May 8, 2015. Please go to Facebook.com/thekenyamoore or Kenya Moore.com to watch. Network premiere TBA.

As previously reported, Hubert took to social media over the weekend and threatened to take Moore to court.

Before the holidays, Kenya Moore opened up about her plans to produce a sitcom pilot titled “Life Twirls On.” The former pageant queen’s brainchild has become a reality and she recently premiered the full trailer.

The half-hour comedy pilot is said to be based on the life on the 44-year-old and features actor Leon Robinson, singer D. Woods, Janet Hubert and Moore’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” co-star Cynthia Bailey.

The plot picks up with character Kenya Brown (Moore) who is preparing to marry her college sweetheart. On the day of the ceremony, she discovers her new husband in a questionable position with her “THOTish” younger sister and decides end the marriage after less than 24 hours. From there, all hell breaks loose as she struggles to put her life back together while suffering from an apparent nervous breakdown. Check out a full synopsis below:

The Brown sisters are each at different crossroads in their lives as they struggle to navigate their new and often uncomfortable living arrangement while dealing with their daily deep-seated family issues, new relationships and ever-evolving life changes, and personal battles.

If you know Kenya, then you know the trailer is way over the top. But that’s exactly what we’ve come to expect from Ms. Moore, so that’s no surprise. So far, there has been no word on a network picking up the sitcom, but Moore seemed pretty confident that her work will make it to the masses.

Judging by the trailer, it seems that wasn’t a huge budget for the pilot. But if picked up by the right network, I think the show may have the potential to do alright.

Kenya Moore’s Kontrol Magazine Cover Is Breathtaking

Kenya Moore is welcoming spring in an amazing way for the of the 25th issue of Kontrol magazine. On the cover, the beauty is showing off that lovely hair while flaunting those killer curves in a little black dress. Inside, she opens up about her hair care line, which drops in August, and of course, some RHOA related drama. Check out some highlights from her interview below.

On Moore Hair Care line:

“Healthy hair is hair that isn’t dry, damaged, split or frayed. A lot of women are not happy with their hair and they think the only option they have is to wear weave, wigs extensions or clip –ins. Healthy hair has movement and shine.”

On how she feels about her portrayal on RHOA this season:

“I feel this is one of the best seasons because it shows who I really am. I have people around that genuinely know and love me.”

On her feelings regarding Phaedra and Apollo:

“I definitely feel redeemed from the feud with Apollo and Phaedra.” This was quite evident with the airing of Sunday’s show with Kenya and Phaedra making amends and hopefully slowing working to build a better friendship. Only time will tell.

On fans considering her and Cynthia to be an unlikely pair:

“How so? We’re both models/beauty queens that love fashion, worked in New York, and know most of the same people.” Now that things have changed between Cynthia and Nene, it’s been a lot easier to develop a deeper friendship for Kenya. “You no longer have someone constantly telling you who to be friends with and to choose.”

On if she thinks Nene will ever cut a check to Detroit Public Schools:

“No, I don’t think so. People can see the type of person she is. She used it to show the world how disgusting and evil she is. Why would you shortchange some kids because you want to be in a pissing contest with someone?”

Check out Kenya’s full interview in the new issue of Kontrol.
