While I am happy to see the Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Kenya Moore is embarrassed about something — as she should be — I’m not totally sure I’m buying the story she’s telling, or more like selling. After he on-screen boyfriend Walter exposed their relationship as nothing more than a romance for the cameras Monday, Kenya was adamant about defending herself against his story, tweeting:
“Everyone is so quick to jump to conclusions when people lie. Look to someone’s motivations.”
After a follower told Kenya if Walter’s story isn’t true then she needed to speak on it, the reality TV newbie said that she would be releasing an official statement later in the day, and according to TooFab.com, they’ve received the official response from Ms. Moore, which says:
“The truth is and has always been that I want to be in a loving, honest, long-term relationship with someone who genuinely loves me for me — Walter’s recent statements are completely false. I am embarrassed that I allowed a deceitful and hateful person in my life. He says he ‘did it for fame.'”
“I’ve been humiliated enough by appearing desperate for a man to marry me who now admits he had his own agenda. I urge viewers to stay tuned because the truth will come to light. I am moving on from this situation and hope he can as well with respect and dignity going forward. I have heard the fans and my friends loud and clear … I can do better than Walter, and I will.”
Were it not for that, “I urge viewers to stay tuned” line, I’d be more inclined to believe this statement is genuine, but if all was revealed during taping of the show, why is Kenya devastated and embarrassed now? Didn’t she know this was coming? Perhaps at the end of the season, Kenya decided to finally move on from Walter, who never really seemed to have been on her to begin with, but if I have to choose one person who I think is actually telling the truth in this situation, I’m going to say Walter.
Oh, and interestingly, Wendy Williams will also have an exclusive statement from Kenya about this situation later today. Sounds like an even bigger ratings plug to me.
What do you think about Kenya’s response to Walter saying their relationship is fake? Who do you believe?
