Before I even get to the show, I need to remind you that word mysteriously leaked out about Kenya Moore going home first on Worst Cooks in America back in June. According to the source, Kenya had a huge hissyfit and refuse to tape her confessionals and her exit. Here are the primary allegations.
- Kenya stomped around the set and refused to leave saying ” I’m calling my agents and they better fix this s***!” Can your really have your agent force a show not to eliminate you first? How would anyone get eliminated?
- She cursed at the producers, badmouthed the judges and ranted: “Without me this damn show will fail!”
- During her post-show blow-up, Moore said that Burrell was “jealous of her beauty” and “had it out for me the entire time.”
- Producers of the show kept trying to get her to leave. They needed to tape the exit scene with her and she refused to go. They needed her to tape her farewell commentary and she refused to. She was dropping F-bombs like no one they had ever seen before.
- And she was allegedly sent home for overcooked fish.
From the beginning, Anne loves Barbara Eden, because Jeannie! And hates Kenya, because, Louboutins! Both Jeannie and Kenya are clearly cast as the class clowns. Kenya acts like she has no idea what a broiling pan is. This is strange behavior for someone who just put a ten thousand dollar 48 inch professional dual fuel range with four burners plus a griddle and a grill in Moore Manor. Or maybe she just like that the knobs matched her red bottoms.
For their first task, everyone gets a “swag bag” with stuff that they say they usually have in their kitchen. But it doesn’t
really matter because they can use the entire pantry. Kenya manages to slice her finger right away.
Wait? Did Kenya just claim that her entire family is from Louisiana so everything she cooks is Cajun? This is her explanation for cooking catfish? With peaches? What the hell is she talking about? Then she dumps a full cup of cayenne on the catfish. If you good Cajun and peaches the first thing to come up is Peaches Cajun Catfish. Had Kenya read further, she might have discovered that the cook (and the restaurant) is named peaches. There are no peaches in Cajun catfish.
At the judging, the fish was NOT deemed over cooked. Anne just freaked out over all the cayenne. So strike one for the source. I am zipping through the other buy I did pause on Barbara’s cream of mushroom and curry and sour cream blob. It was hideous. Everyone said it was the worst dish.
Kenya’s acting skills while burning up multiple tortillas was not her best work. I’m really starting to think she really didn’t want to be there. The day that Kenya showed up on the set was also the day that she got back from Mexico, where she and Matt broke up. So I am sure she was in a bad headspace but she showed up like a trooper. I think she may have told them she had a situation and to please send her home first. On previous seasons of the show, not knowing how to turn the stove on was what got people sent home. On both dished she pretended like she didn’t know how to turn the dial. She is really having to work at making herself look worse that Barbara Eden. Meanwhile, Rachel Ray is telling Barbara Eden exactly what to do to get her dish on the plate.
Kenya’s steak is burned on the outside and raw in the middle.
So here is my theory. Kenya showed up a bit of an emotional wreck after dealing with Matt and she asked to be the first one eliminated. RHOA filming had been moved up and was starting the next week. She played stupid throughout the entire first day of filming and they agreed to vote her off. Production was pissed because they wanted to keep the reality person with the biggest following a lot longer, so they “leaked” a nasty story to Daily Mail. Even Barbara herself was shocked she was not leaving. Rachel today Kenya she “just got too much in her head.” And Kenya replied, “Yeah, there is a lot going on..” (Matt drama?)
That’s my story and I’m sticking too it. After the show Kenya did an interview with the local radio station saying that everyone loved her and she had a lot of fun, except for Anne Burrell. Anne is known to be the bitch on the show while Rachel is the nice helpful one. None of the accusations toward Kenya fit her character, and don’t fit the scenes we saw at all.
It was weird to me that she was playing for Habitat for Humanity instead of Detroit Public Schools, or some Flint water charity. I’m guessing they had to choose from a list in order to avoid people like Nene and Phaedra playing for their own imaginary charities. Allegedly, In my opinion. But she left with $5,000 for Habitat, so some good did come of this.
After the show aired, Kenya posted on her Instagram, “I didn’t last long on @foodnetwork #worstcooksinamerica clearly I wasn’t in the bottom but haters gonna hate, right? LOL But the best part is I got to meet @rachaelray and she was as lovely as she is on TV. Unlike Anne pictured above with me…”
Anne is a bitch to everyone, Kenya. Not just you. Don’t take it personally.
For those that say I am making excuses for Kenya, I’m not. I’m just looking at all the facts and her poor acting. Remember I am still the only one on Team Twirl who admits she stole the phone on Celebrity Apprentice.
