If you haven’t been over to read Kenya’s Real Housewives of Atlanta blog you probably should. It’s a bit lengthy for those with short attention spans, but it’s well-written and makes a lot of good points. If you would to just read my thoughts on the blog, here are five bulleted points that came to my mind as I read her blog.
- Nene cannot give or receive an apology. Kenya has apologized to Nene for “her part” in the Pajama Brawl on numerous occasions, despite being treated rudely by Nene from the moment she arrived. AND despite the fact that a lot of us don’t think she did anything to apologize for and was merely sticking up for herself when being attacked by a man! Nene on the other hand ranted at her guests like a caged animal and continues to deny any blame for what happened. Continue reading
Apologies in advance if the recaps come out a little slower tonight. I’m having laptop issues on my end and using a temporary keyboard I am not used to. We start tonight with one of those staged husband and wife scenes where Nene and Gregg recount for the cameras the previous nights events. Let me just start by saying that Nene is telling it all wrong.
This “she said,she said” that happened last week about the event being to “honor Nene.” Is manufactured. Kenya held a charity event and selected a charity that Nene claims involvement with as a way to smooth things over with Nene. She did not use Nene’s name to invite people to the event. She selected a charity that Nene claims to support in an attempt to placate Nene after the whole Pajama Brawl situation. Nene made herself look stupid. No one else had a hand in that. A simple, “Thank you all for coming out for this worthy cause. I hope you will all consider making a donation to one of my favorite charities.” would have sufficed. Now Nene is trying to say she was bullied into attending the ball. Continue reading

I really don’t want to make this post. But I will because people who try to seek “fame” in general make me wonder if their mama didn’t hug them enough. The older I get, the more I take a self inventory. The past few days have in fact wiped me out as I did that. I won’t over share for once, other than to say, I have been in some negotiations for my services lately and I acted like a total jackass during those negotiations. As a result, I was forced to take inventory of myself and why I react the way I do in certain situations. I’ve had a painful few days where I acted like an asshat in my professional arena, and have tried to grow as a person with the help of some much needed therapeutic assistance. My therapist’s advice was essentially to learn from your mistakes and try not to make them in the future. Please deposit $180 in my tip jar for that So advice. Fine. I paraphrase. $18 will do. lol. These are the jokes people. Sort of. But I share that because I think it relates to this story.
I am growing tired of people posting in the OTHER Saving Our Daughters post comments “Didja hear they are not a real charity?” Yes. Yes. I did both in comments HERE and HERE! So I am updating y’all on what we know. I am changing to purple font at this point.
Despite the HUGE spotlight placed on Curtis Benjamin and his “charity” the site continues to portray themselves as :
Our Vision / Approach: Saving Our Daughters is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose philosophy is to build a movement that begins with experiential literacy and effortlessly flows into recurring civil actions (words and actions). Continue reading
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. Continue reading
Saving Our Daughters, the charity mentioned as the beneficiary for Kenya Moore’s charity event has issued a rather lengthy statement regarding the events surrounding their involvement or lack there of in the Masquerade Ball depicted on last Sunday night’s RHOA.
In their statement they state that they did not receive any of the proceeds from the event. However they did receive a $500 contribution toward their Christmas fund.
I will include the entire statement by Saving Our Daughters after the jump. Continue reading
We begin tonight’s episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta at the J Spot! Girl, Miss Lawrence sure did get lucky with Bravo. He has been promoting his salon and hair services for many seasons and they frequently film at his store. Then he lands Fashion Queens?! He’s probably making more coin than some of the actual housewives! Tonight Marlo is in the salon getting her weave ironed. I cannot believe Bravo let our favorite felon back on the show. But lately, there are almost more people with federal charges pending than housewives with a clear record! I wonder if this is before or after the event where Nene tried to get Marlo arrested for assault? I sure hope they air that scene before the season ends! Nene was throwing a flinger!
Anyway, tonight Kenya is hosting a charity ball and Marlo is invited. The two ladies meet up at the J-Spot to have some girl talk. Kenya tells Miss Lawrence and Marlo the scoop on pajama brawl. They discuss their previous battles with Nene, and Kenya explains she is going to hold a fancy charity ball to raise money for Nene’s Favorite charity in order to get back in her good graces. Does Kenya not know that Nene’s favorite charity is Nene’s Louboutin Fund? I think she overestimates Nene’s ability to be charitable. I’m just saying.
Kandi is holding auditions for her play which by all accounts did very well on it’s Atlanta run despite the hilarious things we have seen in the casting call scenes. I assure you, most of those people do not represent the talent that Atlanta has to offer. It’s time for Porsha’s audition for the role of Kandi’s character’s younger sister, Jada. Porsha could not be bothered to memorize her lines, nor could she be arsed to cold read them as written. Her voice was up about three octaves and she spoke in a valley girl voice. She sang “His Eye is On the Sparrow” in a way over the top way. However, I think with a little coaching from Kandi, she would be alright in this small role. Continue reading

Kenya Moore really does have and “African Prince” and she is in Nigeria with him right now. He’s a singer who is very famous in Nigeria. He’s also a very successful businessman. Grab a tall glass of something and let Tamara Tattles spill all the tea for you.
Back in March of 2013 I posted a blog about Kenya Moore and a Nigerian singer being very chummy at an event in Houston, Texas. My blog was quoted by some Nigerian blogs and I remember reading their comments about D’Banj (what the hell do you shout out in bed when that is your man’s name? What? I’m just curious) who is apparently quite the ladies man, or Kokomaster as the Nigerian women refer to him. In fact, D’Banj’s lyrics are the source of the slang terms “Koko” and “Kokolette” loosely referring to a woman who is good in bed. Anyway, I have spent TWO DAYS trying to find a post that I know existed but no longer does. Perhaps it was lost somehow when I moved from Blogger to WordPress? Of perhaps there is some mysterious conspiracy involved. But I distinctly remember arguing with some Nigerian women who did not want to believe that D’Banj and Kenya were in a relationship. D’Banj is wildly popular in Nigeria and perhaps they have been keeping their relationship on the down low to avoid upsetting his fans. Yes, I know I am giving Kenya a lot of leeway lately, but she deserves a second look in my opinion.
The event in Houston was part of a Nigerian Town Hall Meeting that was held by the All Nigerian Nationals in Diaspora (ANNID), to discuss the Amnesty & Peace in the Niger Delta and D’banj was invited as the special entertainment guest. Kenya and D’Banj arrived together and left the event together in cozy fashion. Still, the Nigerians on my blog were chastising me telling me that just because two people are at an event, doesn’t mean they are dating. Kenya posted the picture of the two of them on her Instagram with the caption “My African Prince.” And at some point, that blog completely disappeared. (Thanks so much to Tootsie and Beth for helping me look for it again today.)
Here is a video of some of he Houston Event mentioned above. Thanks to an anon commenter for sending me the video from my original post.
I told y’all in the last recap of Real Housewives of Atlanta that Nene Leakes was going to blow a gasket over Kenya Moore’s commercial/interview with Regina Hall about the movie, About Last Night. Kenya looked fabulous and interviewed Regina like a pro. Kevin Hart was there too and even used the phrase “Gone With The Wind Fabulous.” I have to hand it to Kenya, that was a priceless way to throw shade at Nene’s unapologetic dismissal from Hollywood. Add to that the fact that Nene would give her eye, fake, blinding white, Chiclet teeth for a talk show despite being functionally illiterate, and Kenya’s ease in a talk show setting. I knew she was going to lose her mind.
What I did not expect, and did not see coming was that Nene would not be able to handle the backlash from her Pillow Talk debacle. To be fair, I don’t believe for a minute that this idea originated as a game that Nene and Gregg play at night. We all know she keeps Gregg chained in the basement or scrubbing floors. This highly scripted game was the brain child of True Entertainment. Carlos King, one of the executive producers of RHOA has known Nene for a long time. Nene has attempted to sufficiently suck up to him to avoid any really terrible edits in the last few years. Until the Pajama Brawl script came along. Nene has been worried about Kenya Moore stealing her shine since she arrived and I truly think the fact that it is happening now is a result of Nene’s lack of confidence in herself (loud does not mean confident, quite the contrary) that resulted in a self-fulfilling prophecy. Now that her worst nightmare is coming true, she can’t handle it. Continue reading
I am so looking forward to this show. With Phaedra cancelling and Kenya filling in, this will be delicious. Plus I love Wayne Brady! LOL At Andy’s intro, “It’s one shady lady and one Wayne Brady.” OMG the bartender is Artie Thompson the crazy gay event planner from Chef Roble! I love this episode already! I hope everyone votes in the poll that Nene started all the dayum drama. It should be a landslide of votes against a handful of dumbasses. Andy says the ladies all blamed Kenya for charging Christopher. Let’s put him in the dumbass category too. They said she charged Natalie, which Kenya carefully explains didn’t happen either. Do we need to roll tape again? Andy says that Nene said she was wearing a diaper and Kenya retorts. “At least I can fit in a child’s diaper, not an adult diaper like some of us.”
Andy says that last week Kenya tweeted that Brandi Glanville was an ass clown. Really I missed that. Kenya says that “Well she’s an idiot really. She went after me in her blog after I said how ignorant her comments were about black people not being able to swim, so that’s why she is an ass clown.” Has Wayne Brady really never heard the expression ass clown? Weird. Continue reading
It’s been two weeks since the last episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, and when last we left the ghetto peaches their men were brawling in their underwear. Tonight, we resume and it is the womens’ turn to try and turn things up. Please note, I will not be referencing Chuck Smith, AKA Big Homie in his own mind, at all during this scene as he will remain ensconced between the fireplace and his wife’s coat tails for the entire drama.
We begin with Phaedra continuously repeating “we need to leave” despite the fact that absolutely no one, and surely not Apollo is paying her the least bit of attention. Once again, Kenya speaks the truth in her talking head. Nene started all of this with her shit stirring questions and now that everything went left she is trying to wash her hands of the whole situation. Nene makes a dramatic and illiterate announcement, “This ain’t about gettin’ all crunk with no fisteses and stuff!” Porsha tells her sister “we ain’t sign up for no shit like that!” and they leave. It seems like Porsha is going to stroll through the lobby of the Intercontinental in a bright orange bra and panty set and a very see through white dress.
Christopher Williams and Nene seem to be on the same
drugs page and are hugging it out. Natalie’s face indicates that she is not thrilled her man is in a very long embrace with a half-nekkid woman in mullet lingerie. Christopher decides the best thing to do is make another announcement. He says, ” You have to be a strange person to walk up to somebody and tell them (approaches Nene) I know Gregg better than you….” His thoughts are so disjointed I am not even going to recap them. It seems like an attempt to get on his wife’s/girlfriend’s? good side. He accuses Kenya of being “on molly” (ecstasy). Well, KENYA didn’t appear to be on anything but now I have a good idea what he and perhaps a couple of others were on. I mean what’s a “pillow talk” party without some X? Thanks for spilling your own tea there, Christopher. Continue reading

This Video is an interview of Christopher Williams from June 2013. Looks like Kenya was telling the truth. And this interviewer basically grabs him and makes out with him on camera.
I’m so excited to see Dwight back on my TV on tonight’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta! Phaedra is planning a “blessing” or an “inauguration” for Mr. President. She sold the story to the tabloids as a “traditional African naming ceremony.” Whatever she calls it, it can’t possibly be as offensive as Ayden’s televised fiasco. At least she is not doing whatever this is in a church. She has rented a house for the party. Why not just have it in her house? I guess because of the renovations. Phaedra is in full put on mode. It’s a presidential theme, natch. You know, just like all the other traditional African naming ceremonies you’ve been to. Red, White and Blue champagne?
Cynthia is telling Peter about the dinner with all of the girls the other night. Cynthia is a bit irritated with Kandi for saying that Peter has a past. I really didn’t think it was a big deal or that Kandi meant anything by it. She just said we all have a past and that doesn’t necessarily dictate the future. Well, unless we are talking about Apollo. Allegedly. Cynthia is telling Peter this because they are planning to go to a couples pajama party at Nene’s and she wants him to be up to speed. But really, this is just going to make Peter go after Kandi at the party.
Kenya is still pretending to be trying to have a baby. I’m not sure these scenes even need to be recapped. Basically the doctor tells her that her eggs are still too damn old. Um, duh.
Kandi and Todd and Don Juan are talking about casting for the play. Don Juan is throwing shade about Porsha singing in the play. Kandi has confidence in Porsha. Did any of y’all go see the play? Todd brings up Christopher Williams and Kandi gives him the side eye. Don Juan knows what is coming and excuses himself. Then Kandi tells Todd about Christopher’s wife, Natalie, calling him an opportunist. Todd is not feeling a pajama party.
More Kenya silliness. Kenya and Miss Lawrence try to pick up a sperm donor at the sperm bank. Continue reading
