“I Was Unmoved”: Phaedra Parks Was Not Here For Apollo’s Apology To Kenya Moore

Apollo's apology

On Sunday’s episode of “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” viewers saw Apollo Nida go out of his way at Cynthia Bailey’s Ebony magazine spread party to apologize to Kenya Moore. In an attempt to wipe his slate clean before going to jail, he admitted that he lied about the nature of their relationship to Phaedra Parks and to the public. Moore never offered him a blow job, and she never encountered him in Los Angeles as he had claimed for two years.

We told you that Moore felt vindicated by his admission, but still was hoping that Parks would apologize sometime in the future for calling her a ‘whore’ based on a lie:

“Phaedra has called me a whore 99 different ways. As I stated, I may be a lot of things, but I have never been anyone’s whore. Even if she chose to believe her husband, she never checked his story out before publicly slandering and defaming me. As a lawyer herself, I was appalled she would behave in such a way. Apollo clearly has the propensity to lie. With that said, Phaedra chose not to even speak to me about it at all, prohibiting me to even have a response, prove my innocence, or defend myself. Yet, she was more than willing to go to the media to spread this fictitious story.”

But after finding out the truth, what did Parks think of that whole scene and situation? In her Bravo blog, she kept her thoughts on that messiness concise and clean:

“I was unmoved. Right now, I am completely focused on my children and keeping them, and myself for that matter, in a stable, healthy, and happy place. I am not paying attention to any of the chaos that is going on, because it’s not productive.”

Guess that means Moore isn’t getting that apology she wanted from Phae Phae. But who really thought she would…?

“She Has Chosen To Act Like Kenya” Porsha Says Cynthia Bailey Will Do Anything For A Check

Porsha Says Cynthia Bailey Will Do Anything For A Check feat

Officially, Porsha Williams is no longer a peach-holding cast member on the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” but we all know that once a housewife, always housewife. Especially since we still see Porsha all the time, whether she’s prominently featured on the show or not.

And she definitely still has an opinion. Recently, Porsha spoke to OK! Magazine about whether she and Kenya could ever be friends in the future, Apollo’s allegations and why she thinks Cynthia is turning to Kenya 2.0.

See what she had to say in the excerpts below.

Did she originally believe Kenya’s allegations against Apollo?

No, when this whole affair took place two years ago, even though I wasn’t that close to Phaedra at the time, I felt her pain. I know what it is like to be with someone who isn’t faithful. I can’t imagine how it must have felt to think your husband is possibly sleeping with a co-worker or being inappropriate. I remember Kenya admitting to Kandi that she did see Apollo in LA last season. That’s why I don’t understand why she’s now forcing Apollo to back track and clear something she admitted in private with Kandi. But hey, that’s none of my business.

If Kenya apologized, do you think you two could be friends?

Unfortunately, I’m exhausted from going around in circles with a person who doesn’t mean well. Last week as I watched the show, I was in complete shock to see this woman play “The Victim” after she blatantly used props, pointing them in my face and shouting obscenities through a bullhorn in my ears. This weekend when I saw her make fun of how she violated my personal space, it made me sorry for a woman of her age with such behavior! She needs help in a real way. I find it pathetic that she would try to toy with the hearts of our fans and cry wolf by making claims of being attacked, then in a blink of an eye sing a song about dragging me by my hair.

She can never give a sincere apology because those come from the heart. At this point, I’m not sure she has one or a conscience. She represents a woman who is lost in “Fake Reality” and will most likely realize it isn’t real and have nothing because instead of using her gifts and being a blessing, she will have spent her life being envious and tearing down others who are actually living in the real world. However, if Kenya takes responsibility for the use of props at the reunion, yes, there might be a chance for a new start between the two of us.

A little messiness

Oh, here’s a little steamy tea, you all have to promise it’s just between us! I saw Kenya’s full sew-in & track, on a RHOA international trip. However, I welcome her and all to visit gonakedhair.com to get ya hair glam on!

And lastly, what she made of Cynthia and her behavior during the first and second episodes.

Flip-flopper and mean girl! The reason I chose those words to describe her character will become clear as you watch season 7. You will see for yourself the new and unimproved Cynthia.

She’s still cool at times and I still care for her, but mainly from afar! I feel like this season she has decided to “do whatever it takes” for her to make it.  It’s sad that you don’t see the true person or see who is real around you until money is involved. I believe that because of her financial misfortune she has chosen to act like Kenya, doing anything for a check. At the end of the day, we are only left with our self-worth & integrity. Instead, she has sold both to have a storyline and check. I pray that she realizes that even though she didn’t have a voice before, mimicking evil around you & being mean spirited is not being strong at all. Instead, one would think she’d been setting a positive example as a role model for women of all ages, verses displaying negative behavior.

Do you agree with Porsha, was Cynthia behaving inconsistently on the first two episodes? Is she too desperate for a storyline?

Kenya Moore Speaks On Apollo’s Lies, Why She Was Dead Wrong For Texting A Married Man, But Why Phaedra Still Owes Her An Apology

If you watched Sunday’s episode of “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” you know that Apollo Nida surprised a lot of people by apologizing to Kenya Moore. Turns out, he lied for about two years now when he said that Kenya Moore had come onto him when they supposedly saw each other in L.A., and she even tried to offer him fellatio. All lies. He admitted that he was pissed off with her after she put him on blast for texting him behind Phaedra’s back during the season five reunion show, so he didn’t think twice about making her out to be a homewrecker.

On Sunday’s episode, Moore said she felt vindicated but would feel even more vindicated if she could get an apology from Phaedra for calling her a wh*re and more for so long. In this week’s RHOA blog, she spoke on Apollo’s apology, regretting her poor choice to text him without Phaedra’s knowledge, and why she thinks Phaedra should say sorry for helping to spread Apollo’s lies.

 

If you are tired of the “Apollo and Kenya” drama, imagine how I feel. This feud goes all the way back to a business deal gone bad. From that point on, Phaedra started to malign my character and drag my good name through the mud. According to her, I then became an alcoholic, bipolar, and broke. She added home wrecking whore to her list after I outed Apollo for texting me without her knowledge.

I was wrong for responding to Apollo’s text knowing Phaedra and I were not friends at the time or if people believed it was more. The texts were innocent and I have proven that, and I have apologized to Phaedra publicly many times. We all make mistakes and I can admit when I am wrong, apologize, and hopefully, never repeat the same behavior.

I have proclaimed many times that I never saw Apollo in Los Angeles or any other place outside of RHOA. Ever. Therefore, the lie he told about seeing me at a party and according to Phaedra, later showing up at his LA hotel and subsequently offering him fellatio, never happened. I have never wanted Apollo, never offered him sexual favors.

Phaedra has called me a whore 99 different ways. As I stated, I may be a lot of things, but I have never been anyone’s whore. Even if she chose to believe her husband, she never checked his story out before publicly slandering and defaming me. As a lawyer herself, I was appalled she would behave in such a way. Apollo clearly has the propensity to lie. With that said, Phaedra chose not to even speak to me about it at all, prohibiting me to even have a response, prove my innocence, or defend myself. Yet, she was more than willing to go to the media to spread this fictitious story. Imagine how I felt having my family or 5-year-old nieces ask my [sic] why I would do something like that?

The same people who do the most talking and the most damage fall silent when they are proven wrong. The negative headlines become global when it’s something negative. Yet, when the truth is revealed, no one has anything to say. Porsha stated on WWHL she believed “something happened,” NeNe stated I lied to Phaedra on the recent WWHL episode, and Kandi stated that she “looked at me differently” but would never say why. Do I deserve an apology? Yes, without question. Will I get one? …Have I ever?

Kenya

After the truth came out, some people still felt that something did indeed happen between Apollo and Kenya. I’m not so sure about all that. I do think she inappropriately flirted with him on the show, but did so just to get under people’s skin. I don’t think she really has any interest in him…No matter what though, everyone involved in this messy triangle was wrong.

But that’s just my thought. What do you make of her statements? Do you think Phaedra should apologize too?

Kenya Moore Is Getting Married

Don’t ask us how, who, what, where when, or why, ‘cuz baby we don’t know. But, according to Kenya Moore’s Instagram page, she is getting married — tomorrow!

Okay, so I guess we do know the answers to a few of those questions. The who is “Real Housewives of Atlanta’s” most notorious antagonist, the what is an apparent wedding, and the why is for her new scripted show “Life Twirls On.” Kenya is inviting fans to be extras in her new TV show in Jonesboro, GA, tomorrow, where the only requirement seems to be to be fabulous — and formally dressed.

When Kenya talked to JET magazine about the TV pilot a little while back, she said the show was “a half-hour comedy loosely based on my life. It’s funny, it shows me in a situation where I have two sisters. We move in together to try and resolve our differences–we’re all at different crossroads in our lives.”

Could that mean Kenya might be walking down the aisle soon in reality? Or is that the loosely based part? Either way this should be an interesting spectacle. What do you think?

“So Rude And Nasty:” Kenya Moore Makes A New Enemy After Shady WWHL Appearance

Well, it looks like Kenya Moore has a new enemy. If you tuned in to “Watch What Happens Live” last night, chances are you witnessed the multiple awkward moments shared between Kenya Moore and Sherri Shepherd. While it would seem unlikely that these two, of all people, would not get along, apparently, Sherri’s expressed belief that Kenya provoked co-star Porsha Williams to attack her at last season’s reunion special rubbed Kenya the wrong way. Also, the pair couldn’t seem to agree on whether or not Phaedra should have stood by her estranged husband through his legal issues.

Watch the awkward clips from their appearance below.

Yeah, as you can see it was pretty tense. But the true shade began on social media after the episode aired.

Sherri also took to Twitter to remind folks of her credentials and address all of Kenya’s shade.

This week’s episode of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” included a lot of action and drama, and as usual, Kenya and Apollo were a big part of it.

“I’m Really Not Supposed To Be Here…” Kenya Moore Recalls Her Abusive Relationship

 Kenya Moore Recalls Her Abusive Relationship

After the whole melee with Porsha and Kenya from last year’s reunion, Kenya compared that hair pulling incident to a man beating his wife. While that might have been a little extreme, in an interview with theGrio, Kenya explained why she was so sensitive to Porsha’s attack.

It actually triggered memories of an abusive relationship from her past.

“I was really young. I was in high school, and I was dating a much older man. He was every bit of what you would think an abuser would be. He tormented me physically, mentally and once even nearly killed me by putting me into the hospital from stabbing me with a finger nail file.” 

“I lived through that very early on and I feel actually blessed because I did go through it so young and I know the signs to look out for with the men that i’m dating now. And whenever I see a hint of it, I don’t choose to be with that person because I know what it looks like.”

When asked what she would tell other women who may find themselves in a similar situation, Kenya said:

“Love is not someone who will hit you, someone who will talk down to you, someone who controls you, someone who doesn’t allow you to be with your friends, someone who wants to be every part of your life, that’s not love. And my advice would be if they are experiencing that, then they need to tell someone, they need to confide in someone that can help them.”

She also expressed that she wished she had taken her own advice as a teenager.

“I wish I had told another man that it was happening to me because I feel like a man would not stand for it on any level, to see a young woman being abused in that way. So I would say, try to stop seeing that person, get help, counseling yourself, which I had to do. And also, tell someone. 

I’m blessed. I’ve had a lot of things to overcome in my life and I just feel blessed that I am here. I’m really not supposed to be here…but I’m here.”

Kenya Moore Discusses Plans For New TV Show, “Life Twirls On”

When Kenya Moore emerged on the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” scene a couple of seasons ago, she expressed that she had a history in film. Of course, it’s been a while since the former pageant queen has released a project, but she apparently still has a passion for pursuing this dream. During a recent interview with Jet, the 43-year-old beauty revealed that she’s currently working on a TV pilot titled, “Life Twirls On,” which will be loosely based on her life. And if all goes well, it will be debuting sooner than later.

“The first is a TV pilot I’m producing called ‘Life Twirls On.’It’s scripted,” Moore confirmed.

As for what has taken her so long to put out another project, Moore says that she was thrown off course a bit by RHOA.

“I ‘m a producer, I’m an actor, I’m a writer. Last season of RHOA, I got a little off my normal course and they didn’t show anything I do in my day-to-day life. So I wanted to focus on getting back to who I am and what I do best.”

“Life Twirls On” will likely be a sitcom, the reality star adds.

“The TV show is a half-hour comedy loosely based on my life. It’s funny, it shows me in a situation where I have two sisters. We move in together to try and resolve our differences–we’re all at different crossroads in our lives. It’s very exciting. I’m getting a lot of positive feedback.”

Do you think that you would be interested in checking out a sitcom produced by and starring Kenya Moore?

NeNe Leakes Says Statute Of Limitations Has Run Out On Donation To Detroit Schools

Detroit’s schools probably aren’t too pleased with NeNe Leakes. She recently went on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live TV show and basically said the schools in Detroit could forget about a promised $20,000 donation from her.

During last season’s Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion show, NeNe challenged fellow castmate Kenya Moore to donate $20,000 to the charity of Moore’s choice.

Here’s how it went down. Leakes said to Moore: “Let’s put our differences aside for a day of charity. You pick the charity of your choice. I will donate $20,000 and you match me. You donate 20 along with me. How about that? 20K. You ready? Name the charity, and let’s go.”

Moore, who was born in the Motor City, picked Detroit Public Schools Foundation and later wrote the school system a check. Leakes then promised she’d match Moore’s donation. After Moore made her charity selection, Leakes again mentioned she’d do a donation match. “I will write a $20,000 check, and I’d like to see you match me. We’ll write it together.” Moore agreed.

But now Leakes is claiming she has no obligation to pay because the statute of limitations had run out on her promise. “Oh, really? She finally made a donation to Detroit. Well honey, didn’t the statute of limitation run out on that?,” Leakes said to Cohen on the show. “Well, it was a long time ago, so how ’bout that? The statue of limitations does run out on things. Just because she donate, I donate when I want to. I would want proof of that because she’s known to tell a few lies.”

The president of the school district is incredulous, telling TMZ there was no statute of limitations.

Rumor Fix‘s Real Mr. Housewife spoke exclusively to Kenya, who commented on Leakes’ latest announcement, “There was no deadline. This speaks to her character. She never intended to give $20,000 to any charity because she was likely trying to embarrass me rather than be kind and generous.”

Kenya continued, “She can contact Glenda Rice at the DPS foundation directly to confirm that I did give my donation. If she’s so rich, why is this even an issue?”

“Her Time Is Passing”: Kenya Moore Says NeNe Leakes Is No Longer The Queen

Kenya Moore Says NeNe Leakes's TIme Has Passed

Source: Access Hollywood

Now that the season 7 of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” premiere is just around the corner, the guest appearances, sit-downs and interviews with the cast members have increased. It’s the reason “Access Hollywood” interviewed both Phaedra Parks and Kenya Moore within less than a week of each other.

At this point in the game, everyone knows that the ladies of Atlanta bring the drama.

And that was certainly the case when Kenya sat down to talk about the upcoming season of RHOA, her current relationship with NeNe Leakes and her upcoming appearances on “Celebrity Apprentice.”

See what she had to say.

On NeNe Leakes

“We have a love-hate relationship. I love her, she hates me.”

Billy Bush: Nene’s the Queen Bee, you don’t want NeNe against you.

“I think she was. I think that’s the problem. I think her time is passing and that’s an issue for her. Well, honey, it’s a new day.”

Kenya’s co-star on “Celebrity Apprentice” and fellow housewife, Brandi Glanville said that Kenya is pure evil. And as if that weren’t enough, she called her a narcissist and said the two might eventually come to blows. Although Kenya would probably “kick [her] ass for sure.”

When Billy quoted Brandi’s “evil” comment back to Kenya, this is what she had to say in response.

“I can’t do anything for Brandi. I don’t have penicillin and I’m not a psychiatrist. So I can’t help her. “

I generally find Kenya to be annoying as hell, but the girl stays with a zinger.

You can watch her full “Access Hollywood” interview, where Kenya talks about her legal action against Porsha and why this is her redemption season in the video below.
