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?
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?
