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