It did not take long at all for “reality shows” to lost all sense of reality. Flipping tables, infidelity rumors, neck-rolling wig-pulling knockdown drag-out fights are what we want to see apparently. Genuinely crazy people are fascinating. The Scary Island episode was one of RHONY’s highest rated episodes. Teresa’s table flipping scene may be what kick started the long-term success of RHONJ. Each new housewife since has tried to top the previous insanity. Felons were cast, and felonies were committed while filming. More is more.
Enter Kenya. Allegedly, Kenya was neither rolling in the dough or living in Atlanta when she magically got cast as a Real Housewife of Atlanta. But she had a plan. She was banking on a stunt double boyfriend, a house that her landlord claimed she could not afford and a whole lot of insanity . And it appears to still be working for her.
I have often said that the powers that be at Bravo care very much about the number of comments on the official Bravo blogs. Lea Black would not spend nearly the amount of time she does publicizing hers if it didn’t affect her in some way. Kenya more gets the lion’s share of the comments on the RHOA official blogs. And she does it by pissing us off. She thrives on being a hypocrite. She acts like a maniac and then chastises others for similar behavior. Let’s take a look.

This is a no H8 zone. My ego isn’t that big to intimate homosexuality because someone doesn’t want to sleep with me. However, when you have seen countless questionable misogynistic behaviors coupled with ex-wives and ex-girlfriends who share your suspicions, your uncertainties may be perfectly valid. Additionally, being a “man whore” doesn’t make you straight any more than being a virgin does. You are sexually attracted to whom you are attracted in your heart. Whether you are gay or straight, you should be free to be who you are in life without the scrutiny and judgment of others. When you live your life as a lie, you lie to the world every single day. Your lies compound to the point where nothing you say or do is the truth. You will never be happy in life unless you are your authentic self and living an authentic life. And to be very clear, sexuality has nothing to do with one’s character. Your heart, your actions, and your intent is the compilation of your spirit. I do not judge. (I only see your heart). One should love whom they want to love in life.

My heart goes out to anyone suffering a loss… be that physical, emotional, or financial, etc. I never want to see anyone suffer for any reason. If my friend were going through a divorce, I would counsel her not to publicly bash her ex. Marriages do end, feelings do change, and people grow apart. Such is life. We are imperfect and unpredictable. When life happens and results in loss, pain can manifest itself as anger. However, when one repeatedly and relentlessly slanders their soon-to-be ex husband by consistently and purposely gay bashing and slandering them, that crosses a hard line. If one claims to have been a loving wife, a loving mother to their son in marriage, and to God, then that son must be protected from such propaganda for the sake of their well-being.
I hope this will stop and that she can be a bigger person and accept that the relationship is over and refrain from such embarrassing verbal attacks the way Kordell has never bashed her publicly. That is the mark of a good person. One must look to the greater good and that is the protection of the child.
And the crowd goes wild. Commenters are pontificating their chubby little cat lady fingers off with moral outrage. What about Walter’s child that Kenya made sure to tell us was born out-of-wedlock last season? Refreshing the page over and over. Perhaps even buying #TeamPorsha t-shirts from the Bravo store! Ensuring we may never see the end of this new reality. No matter how much we claim to hate it.
