Kenya has a whole lot to say on her Bravo blog this week! Let’s look at a few excerpts and dissect them shall we? As usual, my comments will be in purple text.
“NeNe and I are both survivors of domestic violence. I, particularly, have a penchant for any charity that supports women and helps young girls thrive. Saving Our Daughters (SOD) is one I too firmly believe in and thought would help a lot of girls in need with their struggles in life. Previously, I promised NeNe that I would throw an event to benefit her favorite charity. That I did with no ulterior motive.”
Even though I have taken a seat on the Kenya Love Bus of 2014, I do not believe for a minute that Kenya did the charity event strictly out of the goodness of her heart. Nor do I believe that she was trying to get in Nene’s good graces. I believe that Kenya knows Nene well enough to know how to get her goat. And she not only succeeded at that the got her whole farm. And frankly? I think it is about time Nene got a taste of her own medicine. She needed to be brought down a few pegs. Kenya managed to do this while coming out smelling like a rose. For that, I have to give the girl props. I may not do everything perfectly right, but my heart was in the right place. Although I do not owe NeNe anything, out of respect for our friendship at the time, I only wanted to do something kind for her and to benefit a great charity — a win-win situation. This was my sweeping gesture…my olive branch. However, you don’t take an olive branch and beat someone with it.
Each and every girl received the same invitation outlining my event details, dress code, program, etc. The electronic invitation my team used tracked all the invitations. Therefore, we could see that NeNe not only RECEIVED the evite but READ the invitation as well. However, she chose not to respond. Instead of calling me with questions, she contacted the charity and confirmed their support for the event weeks prior. She also heard from Cynthia and Marlo about the event, other Housewives, and PR staff. Does this sound like a woman who didn’t know anything about the event as she claims? If you believe that lie, I have a bridge I want to sell you.
Nobody believes that Nene was not told by multiple people about the charity event. Nene said with her own mouth while she was talking with Cynthia that Marlo had told her about it. Now she is trying to claim that since the evite was sent by Kenya’s team that it doesn’t count as Kenya inviting her. Really? Nobody believes that Nene was in the dark about the event. She just didn’t want to go to an event that Kenya would get the glory for. Plain and simple.
Initially, I wanted to surprise her with my decision to make her the guest of honor, which is why I didn’t personally call her. However, as rumblings went on about her not getting a call from me, I immediately called her and received no response resulting in me texting her. To my dismay, she furiously responded in a nasty, disrespectful manner. Again, all knowledge of the event took place prior to the event. Once NeNe did learn, she made her own choice how to conduct herself.
Oh, so Kenya did make attempts to call her and Nene refused her calls. Interesting.
I commend Cynthia for the class act that she is and her many attempts to protect NeNe’s image by advising her to do the right thing and attend. Alternatively, NeNe could have declined coming altogether, sent someone to accept on her behalf, or come and graciously accept her honor and ask people to be generous and donate, then, speak to me privately later. Yet, she did none of the above. Proving money can’t buy you class.
I find it extremely intriguing that Cynthia was so adamant that Nene had to attend. It’s almost as if Cynthia wanted the whole thing to go down as it did. Cynthia is getting to be a bit less of a by stander and more involved in the drama lately. Good for her. She needs to get into the mix a bit.
What are your thoughts on Kenya’s blog?
P.S. I really appreciate how support of my blog you guys have been this week. The donations are much appreciated as always. The kind words are even more welcomed as I tend to get very overwhelmed and cranky and really appreciate you guys supporting me despite myself at times. xoxox.
