I knew that this season of RHOA would be difficult to watch. While I don’t know Kenya personally, I do have a source that is very close to Kenya. That source has been concerned about her relationship with Matt for quite some time. I was aware of some, but not all of the things Kenya posted about recently on Instagram. I have an idea the source was unaware of the full extent of what was going on, and that yesterday’s Instagram post held surprising information for that person as well. What we did know was bad enough.
I knew that Kenya and Matt had spent a lot of time together during the off-season. I knew that Matt and Kenya were talking about Matt fathering a child with her via IVF, And I think that is how it came to be that Kenya put up with this asshole for as long as she has. That’s just my opinion, but Kenya really wants a baby, and I feel like she thought she could fix whatever the hell is wrong with him. Matt is someone who can be trusted around a child.
Here is what Kenya said about the situation yesterday after Matt had the audacity to say he was just playing the role of her boyfriend. Or maybe just playing the role of a thug. As I said they were together most all the time in the down season, so clearly he put in a lot of dress rehearsal time. I guess he needed to work on his lines in Mexico, and Vegas and…the other places we saw them together.
There were no cameras around in Mexico when the door was kicked in and police escorted him out. There were no cameras the now FOUR times my home was vandalized. There were no cameras filming when my neighbors called 911. There were no cameras filming when the Vegas hotel kicked him out for being violent and destroying the hotel room. There were no cameras around when I posted bail, paid for tickets, back owed rent to keep from being evicted, or never left his side when he cried in my arms to take him back countless times. And there were no cameras around when he got arrested for a felony last month (for the 4th time in a year) tazed, handcuffed and fled on foot. There were no cameras when he was banned from filming because of his violence.
The Mexico trip was the first time I heard of Matt’s violent behavior. I was told it was much worse than what was reported. When Kenya returned, she had to immediately fly to NYC and film Worst Cooks. There were rumors that Kenya caused a ruckus while filming that show. That didn’t sound like her to me. I always thought she probably asked to voted off first because of her personal problems going on at the time. Matt was in Atlanta and she was worried about her house. Even is she did have some difficult behavior, who could blame her?
Kenya went to Vegas to film Sharknado and it seems Matt was there for that causing problems for her acting career.
The four arrests this year occurred with reckless driving that alerted cops to other outstanding warrants. TMZ describes the most recent one. “In September, Jordan was driving past cops and allegedly shouted homophobic slurs at them. Things escalated and officers ended up firing a Taser into his back, which they say he ripped out and fled into the woods. Cops went to his car, found his ID and arrested him 4 days later for felony obstruction and misdemeanor disorderly conduct.”
Oh and Matt was banned from filming for his violence. That explains why he was wandering the streets of Syracuse like a homeless dude whining about not being in Maui. And remember the time Kenya was in Miami and Matt just happened to fly down there and hang around with “his fans” while she was there? Creepy.
I was worried about Kenya when she was on The Real recently talking about Matt. I was particularly disturbed by her comment that she knows that Matt loves her. Because I knew what had gone on and that is not what loves looks like.
My biggest concern for Kenya is that this is not over. For any of those who have been in these sorts of relationships, the scene where she stands inside the car door begging him to talk to her, is heartbreaking and stirs up a lot of memories of painful relationships. I really hope she stays away from this asshole, because he is using ever single manipulation device these types of assholes use. Every.Single.One.
Oh, and one more thing. Matt’s sister has to know how violent he is. So her treatment of Kenya on RHOA was despicable.
