Phaedra Parks Says Kenya Moore Still Can’t Be Trusted: “Her Consistent Actions Speak Louder Than Apollo’s Words”

Although Apollo Nida confessed that he was being dishonest when he accused Kenya Moore of offering him sexual favors, Phaedra Parks says that this does not prove Kenya to be a trustworthy person. In fact, she says that Apollo’s scathing allegation was just one of many factors that pitted her against her co-star.

“I moved past this years ago,” the soon-to-be divorced reality star told Bravo. “Unfortunately, Kenya has continued to harp on this matter in order to remain relevant. Some of us have jobs and families to keep our minds and lives fully occupied.”

“Kenya’s consistent behavior from inappropriately interacting with married men to screaming at people, who are in close proximity, through a bullhorn is unacceptable and independent of anything Apollo may or may not have done or said. In short, as it relates to whom and how Kenya is, her consistent actions speak louder than Apollo’s words.”

When asked if she’ll ever be able to “wipe the slate clean” with Kenya and start over, Phaedra had this to say:

“It depends how you define the term ‘wipe the slate clean.’ If that means I’ve let all the craziness go and moved on with my life, then yes. If that means we’re going to be friends and I believe Kenya was somehow wronged, then no.

After Apollo said he had been lying, Kenya has been doing the vindication dance and expecting the rest of us to have an epiphany that she is a wonderful human being. The fact remains that Kenya often acts in an inappropriate, disrespectful, and unbecoming manner towards a lot of people. And has done so for quite some time. As such, it is irrelevant whether Apollo was lying back then, or is lying about lying now.”

Well, that’s that.

On this week’s episode of “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” all the ladies finally come face-to-face for the first time this season (minus newbie Claudia Jordan) to hash out their issues, and let’s just say that there wasn’t a kumbaya moment for anybody…

Let’s chat about what went down!

Claudia Gets A Visit From Kenya And Talk Apollo

Claudia Jordan, who I can say that I like so far, starts this week’s show with a visit from Kenya Moore. Jordan’s new ATL apartment is pretty awesome, and includes some amazing views of the city–the only thing missing is some furniture. So when Kenya comes buy, dressed up in a maxi and some Louboutins, Jordan gets her to help put together some pieces while she waits for the rest of her furniture to arrive. During their building (or lack thereof), Moore tells her that despite Apollo Nida’s apology, many of the women in the cast think that Nida lied about lying on her. Jordan defends her friend, saying, “You’re not a liar. You’re not a whore. A little cray cray? Yes. A little ashy? Yes.”

More Mess: Nene Reacts To Kenya Saying That She’s Too Ugly To Steal Someone’s Man

Any time grown women resort to attacking each other’s appearances, it’s safe to say that things have gotten completely out of hand. Last week, we told you that Kenya Moore expressed that she found it to be extremely hypocritical that her cast members had so much to say about her interactions with Apollo Nida and basically turned a blind eye when Nene flirted with ex-friend Cynthia Bailey’s husband, Peter Thomas. She eventually concluded that no one reacted because Nene isn’t pretty enough to pose a potential “threat to anyone’s marriage.”

“Several seasons ago, Nene blatantly flirted with Peter and was greatly criticized,” Kenya wrote. “However, no one took her seriously because of the way she looks. Clearly, she’s not a threat to anyone’s marriage. Lucky for her.”

Nene has since responded to Kenya’s comments and apparently, she doesn’t think the former pageant queen is all that attractive either.

“Kenya Is Not Innocent”: Phaedra Speaks On NeNe’s Claim That Apollo Lied About Lying On Kenya

December 2nd, 2014 - By Victoria Uwumarogie

After it was revealed on episode two that Apollo Nida lied on Kenya Moore about meeting him in Los Angeles and offering him a blow job, Kenya Moore was hopeful that her reputation would be redeemed. She was also hopeful that everyone who called her a “whore” would finally see her in another light.

But not so fast.

NeNe Leakes shared on Sunday night’s episode that she thinks Apollo actually lied about lying on Kenya, and that they did in fact engage in something inappropriate. In her mind, she thinks that in an attempt to hurt Phaedra, Apollo bent the truth in order to make Kenya look good, and Phaedra look bad (and in the end, make himself look worse). Later on in the episode, when Kenya found out about this theory, she broke down crying in anger over the fact that the ladies were “still trying to throw dirt on me.”

In her Bravo blog, Phaedra shared her thoughts on NeNe’s theory, and said it’s not so farfetched…

Given the circumstances, I believe that NeNe was being a very supportive friend to me. Hurt people, hurt people. And NeNe observed that Apollo was coming from a place of anger and self-inflicted pain. All in all, I think NeNe made a fair observation. She has also witnessed Kenya’s unladylike, disrespectful behavior with men so it was easy for her, and anyone else, to conclude that Kenya is not innocent. There has been so much lying and manipulation going on and it is not a constructive use of my time to keep score. In the end, it really doesn’t matter to me whether Apollo was telling the truth about what happened with Kenya. What matters to me is that I have two fine young boys who are growing up without a father, and the person I thought was going to be my life partner decided to take another path.

She also said that she wasn’t moved by Kenya’s emotional breakdown at the end of the episode. In her mind, Kenya was trying to play victim as usual:

Kenya is being Kenya; twirling on an emotional rollercoaster in an effort to gain sympathy. Playing victim is a tool of distraction people use to get others to forget the role they played in a situation. Kenya wants everyone to forget that she is the person who brought up the texts in the first place (and beat the subject to death), flaunted inappropriate, flirty behavior with numerous men, and repeatedly lied about her male suitors or lack thereof. You cannot make it so easy for people to believe salacious stories about you and then expect pity when one story may not be true.

And when asked what she thought about Apollo putting their past on blast (including his claims that Phaedra was visiting him in the projects and sleeping on a blowup mattress with him when he got out of jail the first time), she kept her comments concise:

All you needed was one more person and it could have been a Three Stooges movie.

Well, one person who actually believes that Apollo lied is blogger Funky Dineva. He gets along with a few ladies from the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast, specifically Phaedra and Apollo. So when Apollo started saying that Kenya came on to him, Funky Dineva, like many people, believed him. Because of his friendliness with Phaedra, the blogger often talked quite ugly about Kenya in his stories, and she at one point, threatened to sue him. But now that Apollo has said that he lied, Dineva decided that it was only right to apologize to Kenya, and do so publicly on his blog:

Dear Kenya Moore,

Let me start off by saying when I found out that you would be joining the cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta I was overjoyed. I kept thinking OMG that history making beauty queen lady is really going to add some class and legitimacy to RHOA. Boy was I wrong. Much to my dismay, Kenya you are crazy as hell. All things constant, you fit right on with the ladies perfectly. Adding further insult to disappointment, when Apollo said what he said about you, I went from side-eyeing you, to closing my eyes on you altogether. I’m cool with Phaedra and Apollo, and just like the other ladies, I took what Apollo said as the gospel and treated you as such. For that I am sorry. Unlike Apollo was able to do, let me be specific. I am sorry my role in perpetuating the notion that you were a whore and tried to sleep with Apollo. I’m sorry for the mass dissemination of information that may have painted you in a whore light, albeit I did not know the information was false, and was just reporting what I saw on the television. Lastly, I apologize for really not giving you a fair chance because I thought you were trying to suck my friend’s husband dick. I’m sorry.

Now don’t get it twisted, I still borderline don’t see it for you. To be honest, every time you tootsie roll your ass across my screen I roll my eyes so hard that I’m now blind in my left eye, and developing cataracts in the right. Quiet a its kept, I might need to sue your ass (the way you threatened to sue me READ : Kenya Moore Threatens To Sue Blogger Funky Dineva For Exposing Her – Ohhh You Mad Huh?) because My Obama care package did not include vision insurance, and I need my vision to continue to throw shade at you in the future and make coins off it. Hopefully this whole Apollo revelation will open the door to me one day seeing it for you. Only time will tell, but I did want to offer up an apology. Again, I’m sorry…

Sincerely,

Funky Dineva Ross

P.S., You are slaying these hoes with your confessional looks!!

What are your thoughts on all these new statements?

So Petty: Kenya Moore Says NeNe’s Too Ugly To Take Anyone’s Man

Kenya Moore Says NeNe's Too Ugly

Y’all know how Kenya gets down. When she comes under attack, she always finds a way to deflect. And while some of her arguments might be legit, she always takes it a step further, with the insults.

Apparently, Kenya is still seeking vindication for Apollo lying on her. And instead of just directing her comments at the parties involved, Kenya went for her longtime nemesis NeNe Leakes. She was upset that when Apollo was lodging his accusations, her castmates believed him and subsequently questioned her character. She felt it was hypocritical, especially since she said NeNe blatantly flirted with Cynthia’s husband Peter.

In her blog on Bravo, Kenya talked about NeNe’s past missteps and her present hypocrisy.

I have been respectfully employed since the age of 14, managing to stay off a pole and out of jail. Therefore, for 20 plus years I have been around the block working. NeNe cannot say the same. I will no longer tolerate the thinly veiled insults aimed at my virtue as a woman. Several seasons ago, NeNe blatantly flirted with Peter and was greatly criticized. However, no one took her seriously because of the way she looks. Clearly, she’s not a threat to anyone’s marriage. Lucky for her.

Oh Kenya…so pretty and yet, so petty.

It’s so clear that she’ll do anything to keep up this ridiculous beef these two have going on with each other.

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

Apollo's apology

Instagram/Splash

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.
