‘I Did Have An Ulterior Motive:’ Kenya Moore Offers Explanation For Flirty Apollo Exchange
During Sunday’s episode of “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” Kenya Moore resorted to some flirty tactics in an effort to initiate a one-on-one chat with Apollo. Her behavior teetered a bit on the questionable side and left plenty of RHOA fans giving her the extreme side-eye, but in her latest Bravo blog, the former pageant queen explained that it was all an attempt to clear her name in regard to the textgate scandal.
“All the women were invited to the lounge, but of course they were all late so Lawrence and I joined them,” the 43-year-old Detroit native explained. “I did have an ulterior motive in hanging out with them and that was to get the truth out of Apollo.”
She adds that she believes her attempt was a success, as she walked away with the “admission of guilt” that she initially hoped for.
“You catch a rat with peanut butter not salt. Once they were relaxed, it was my moment. I wanted an admission of guilt, an apology, and a resolution from Apollo and I succeeded,” she continued. “As a result of me being non-threatening, Apollo admitted that he felt he could have slept with me yet I never offered him sex (‘I can say how I feel you don’t have to offer.’)”
Her post continues:
“Apollo’s fictional stories about LA and anything else were retaliation for me making him look bad because I revealed his texts to me (‘You took a jab, I took a jab regardless of whose head got knocked off.’)
I wanted closure and to move on. I can’t do that without a conversation. We have never had that and Phaedra deserves to know the truth as well. However, it was Phaedra who decided to go on a national platform and recite Apollo’s lies without ever speaking to me or fact-finding. So not only did he try to hurt me but she willingly participated.”
In closing, Kenya also reiterated her own wrongdoing in the textgate fiasco.
“With that said, I am guilty of one thing and that is responding to Apollo’s friendly texts. I have wholeheartedly apologized as it was inappropriate. Additionally, my poor choice opened the door for these types of people to drag me through the mud outside the prism of RHOA. But liars never win and karma is a bi**h. Stay tuned for the conclusion next week.”
