Kenya Moore did a long and interesting interview on the Breakfast Club today. She starts out talking about the intruders on her property and why she pulled a gun on them. She has a Sig Sauer that she pointed at them for home protection. She has also purchased a small, concealable hand gun that she carries with her now.
She talked about dating on a reality show and in real life. Kenya says she is really a homebody who hangs out in sweats and likes to stay home and cook for her man. The guys call her out since she is carrying an Hermes alligator bag today. She says she mixes high end and low end fashion and claims she just bought “a little jacket” at Target.
She reminds us that Phaedra is the person who started all the nonsense about her paying men to be on the show as her boyfriend. She said it about Walter and it’s been a thing ever since.
She talks about their story lines after being asked if there is a lot of pressure from the producers to bring a compelling story line each season. She says no. (The actual answer is yes.) She says she generally has things going on in her life and she’s had a top story line for all five of her seasons. When asked about the other ladies she said she can’t speak for them but there was a lot of stuff this season that seemed unbelievable. Fun fact, I did a search for “Porsha fake” to pull up that link. One of the guys points out that Kenya has the highest rated episodes every season.
As for the Phaedra situation, Kenya says that she knew all of that would come out at the reunion. Kenya says that Kandi is the fan favorite of the show and always has been. I wonder what she is basing that on. Kenya says that it is a fact. She says that Phaedra was blindsided by Porsha and didn’t expect what Porsha came there to do.
The female DJ (I’m sorry I don’t know the names of these people even though I’ve watched several of the videos) says she thought Kenya and Porsha were going to be friends at first. Kenya said she did too, but Porsha continues to make odd comments about how she gets her money. The thing she said about Kenya wrecking her car and asking some man for money offended Kenya. She says she is a self-made millionaire who works hard and takes care of herself. She is in a very happy relationship now that she is trying to keep private. She says that people who make up crazy stories to damage the reputation of others should be fired. She is referring to Porsha. She says that Porsha took the loaded gun that Phaedra gave her and fired it at Kandi.
They mention that Phaedra is currently blaming the producer (they never say Carlos’ name) for telling her the things about Kandi. Kenya says that Phaedra is a liar. Phaedra told Porsha that Kandi herself told her that information. She says the producer can’t make her say that. I need to look at my timeline but I think that Carlos lost his job about the same time that Phaedra did. I’m just saying. So why is Porsha once again protected from any sort of consequences for her large role in all of this?
Kenya says that Phaedra has been saying slanderous things about her since came on the show. When the workout video thing happened, that is when Phaedra started saying that Kenya was an alcoholic and bipolar. She says she is not sure if Kandi is going to sue or not. Kenya says the truth is out there now and that might be enough for her. She is asked if it were her, would she sue and she says probably because she can be very petty at times. Kenya says she has sent people on the show cease and desist letters before. They started their next question while she was talking and didn’t follow-up on that like I wish the would have.
I love that Kenya says straight out that the ridiculous story about Nene getting $2.5 million dollars is not true. She also says she loves Nene and Nene did not put that figure out there. She says that the ratings held when Nene left and there would be no need to more than double her salary to entice her to return. About Kim Biermann she says, “Kim needs a check so Kim will be back.” She says Kim’s checks have been tardy lately. She says she was good with Kim until Sheree’s house-warming party. Kim came at her for talking about Sheree’s house. Kenya says Kim must have forgotten the way she talked about Kandi’s new house being in the ghetto and all the things she said.
Kenya was asked about working with Donald Trump on The Apprentice. That seemed to make her uncomfortable. She said it seems like he is the same on the show as he is as president and that he was tough but fair with her.
Kenya says that she knows how to push all the ladies’ buttons but she throws funny shade. She is not defaming people’s character or accusing them of crimes. She uses the cheap tile in the foyer of Chateau Sheree as an example. She says if you build a ten thousand square foot house and don’t put down marble floors, she’s going to have something to say about that.
I just hit some of the highlights. This is a really good interview and I recommend watch the entire thing.
