I swear, all I hear about Kenya Moore filming RHOA lately is drama. It seems like most, but not all. of it has to do with Matt. I am over Matt. I’ve heard of at least three incidents where there has been an on camera argument between Matt and Kenya. Kenya has been filming with her father a lot lately. It’s unclear whether he is down for an extended visit or if he has decided to relocate. Around the same time she bought her house, she bought another modest home in the suburbs. Perhaps that was for her father? At the time I thought it might have been for Aunt Lori. I’m not sure. Anyway he is here. And he is filming with her. The photo above was sent to me about two weeks ago. That is supposed to be her father with his back to us in a white shirt. I can’t confirm that, in more recent photos his head was not clean-shaven. Maybe she gets her fast hair growth from her Daddy.
The photo above was filmed outside a restaurant in Atlanta where Matt was having one of his tantrums, arms folded like a toddler. I liked Matt with Kenya at first, but he is just too young for him. She needs a man, not a boy who takes all of their arguments to social media looking to rally people to his side for sympathy. I can also tell you the past dramatics by Matt where he claimed he was showing up at Kenya’s for a reconciliation (weeks ago) and was ambushed by the TV cameras was completely false. He had been staying at Moore Manor for the better part of a month when he went on that tirade. He likes to act like he moved to L.A. but no. He traveled with her to L.A. and they have been very on again off again since the Mexico trip from hell.
Click through for Saturday night’s drama in Charlotte.
Tonight’s drama centers around Peter having an on camera opening of Club One Charlotte. I believe it had a soft opening weeks ago. Kenya Moore and Todd Tucker were the official hosts of the event. Why? I have no idea. Maybe Kandi wanted to stay home with the kids. It was a black tie, VIP event. Because, as you can see above, Peter Thomas is not a Frailer. Seriously? Moving on…
Kenya invited her “man” despite numerous recent social media meltdowns to join her in Charlotte. It did not go well. In fact, it started another social media meltdown hours before the event. Some versions of the story tonight say that Matt was supposed to host but when he could not get it together and get to the airport with Kenya, Todd agreed to be the substitute host. Not sure if that is true, or how much is production driven, but Matt’s constant meltdowns on social media seem genuine.
I can’t begin to tell you how many problems there are with this tantrum. First of all, you can’t run through a terminal at Hartsfield without a ticket in your hand. Gone are the days when you received a paper ticket in the mail, or from a travel agent. Everyone checks in at a kiosk or a with a gate agent to get their ticket that allows them to clear security and get to the concourse. Even an e-ticket requires a boarding pass to be printed. Next, it is about a three and a half hour drive to Charlotte. By the time you drive yourself, as he seems to have done, to the airport, checked-in and clear the long security lines for domestic flights, you are already three hours in. Then you have an hour or so flight, followed by getting yourself from the airport in Charlotte to your destination. It’s actually a longer travel time to fly than it is to drive. I hate driving in Atlanta, so I probably would book a ticket. You can take a very nice car service for $100 each way to the airport that pays for itself in parking fees very quickly, and they put you in a lovely car where you can relax and have a drink. Arrive, check in, get your first class upgrade on your Delta Amex, go to the Sky Lounge have a nice lite meal and free drinks, board first, have some champagne and maybe some warm nuts, get a limo to the hotel and arrive buzzed, fed and well rested.
What you don’t do is drive your hooptie to Hartsfield jog the miles from economy parking to the check in sweating like a pig and looking like the unibomber, late. Even if your ticket was waiting on you, you will be shook at security. But Matt didn’t make it to security because as he says Kenya Moore cancelled his ticket. Now how could she do that? She could do that if she paid for the ticket. Tickets to Charlotte are currently $225 in coach or a full price first class ticket would be just over $300. So he gets there allegedly packed and ready to fly and he has to leave because “she” cancelled his ticket. Sounds like she did not want him to go. If she did, they would have gone to the airport together. So he has three options. Take out his Delta Amex and plonk down $300, sit his dumb ass in first class and arrive fresh as a daisy, get in his hooptie and drive to Charlotte and be there almost as fast, or whine like a little bitch online. He chose the third one. He posted something on his social media about wasting gas going to the airport because of her. Bless his heart.
He also said after the ticket cancellation, “Then when I break something or yell or act aggressive y’all wonder why! I get upset and y’all wonder why I am bashing her online! ”
Yes because yelling, breaking things and acting aggressively is how real men deal with not having the gas money to get to Charlotte. Fun fact, gas is less than $2 a gallon many places in Atlanta right now. Todd Tucker drove up, you could have thumbed a ride!

I get paid to share my life on TV. But when I care about someone, I protect them even when I may need protection from them. I'm not going to fight on social media. That's what kids do. Love me or hate me, I don't care if I'm 100 and single I'll never settle for any man just to say I have one. Ladies: A man can make you a wife, or woman now for that matter, but a man can never validate you. #9proposalsandcounting #neverbeendesperate #neverpaidaman #mydaddylovesme #judgenotleatyebejudged #dontjusdgeunlessuknowallthefacts #whosdoingthetalking #whopoststhendeletes #whocrieswolf #youcantbeavictimandahero #whoisdoingdamagetowhom #KenyaMoore #rhoa #realtalk #teamtwirl
So Kenya sent him $20 for gas. HILARIOUS. The fact that he posted the Chase receipt on social media? Juvenile. Kenya posted the above Instagram in response. Dump this boy, Kenya and quit making excuses for him.
That said, I believe most of this to be manufactured drama. A Tamara Tattles exclusive spy has now verified that Matt was in Charlotte hours before the event a the cast and crew hotel. That doesn’t change the fact that every time Matt has a meltdown there are overtones of aggressive behavior on his part, or contrite posts for previous aggressive behavior. If Kenya wants to have a kid, she needs her man to be a man and not a whiny little boy. This is not a good look for Kenya. I feel like Matt will be kept around for the season, regardless. As much as he tries to cry that he doesn’t want to be filmed or her story line, that is exactly what he wants. He has some issues. He needs to grow up. He needs to get his emotions under control. And even if he does all of that, I still think at this point Kenya needs to fish again. A nice older man on equal or better financial footing. Or just stay single. Single is the wave of the future. The whole “something must be wrong with you if you are not married” mindset is old school. The new mindset is be happy. Do you.
As of this morning, I have been watching this sitch all night, there are very few photos from anyone other than Cynthia and Todd because photos were not allowed during filming. But I do know that filming went VERY long which means it will be a dramatic scene on the upcoming season. People were still there at 4 a.m. Oh, and that guy with Cynthia, was not there with Cynthia. I’m pretty sure he is a partner in Peter’s coffee business. He took photos with Todd, Cynthia and Peter. I have seen no photos of Kenya at the event. But it doesn’t sound like it was a “frailer.”
What do you think of the Kenya and Matt situation?
