In her newest blog, Kenya Moore admits her Kenya Moore Hair Care launch party was a disaster and blames the party planners for that literal hot mess. She also shares her disappointment in Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star Porsha Williams for her behavior at the party. Kenya claims her products are very real and are starting to ship today!
Kenya says she and Madam CJ Walker have something in common: being self-made women. She says of Madam CJ, “she neither inherited her money nor married someone who was a millionaire. She was a woman who came from the cotton fields who promoted herself into the business of manufacturing hair goods. She built her own factory on her own ground. I too am self-made, often believing in myself when no one else did.”
Kenya has worked hard on her new hair care line and was very let down by the party planners when they failed to deliver a party that was worthy of her hard work. “Over the past 5 years I have developed, researched, tested, and branded Kenya Moore Hair Care. The culmination of my hard work and dedication should have been reflected in my launch party, since I’ve always thrown the most elaborate and memorable parties. The launch party was my baby. I entrusted event planners that did not execute my vision. It was an epic fail on their part.”
There is a bright side, though! “The positive side is I now have world-wide distribution and retail stores that will be carrying my line very soon. In many ways, I failed up.”
On her disappointment in Porsha Williams and her “bottled water” digs, “I thought Porsha and I were in a better place, which is why I invited her and Phaedra to my party. There were over 100 gift bags with actual Kenya Moore Hair Care Product given away at my event. Yet Porsha and her side kick chose to focus on the display only bottles used as table decorations and negatively mock my product line.”
She continues, “It’s sad that Porsha and Phaedra always feel a need to be hateful toward me after all we have been through to move past our tumultuous history. Together they dumb each other down. Phaedra taking digs at my previous skin condition with my date and making the comment about my skin being dark. These types of ignorant comments not only insult me as a dark skinned woman but an entire race. All black is beautiful. We should be celebrating our differences, which is why in my opinion Phaedra’s comment warrants an apology.”
Kenya takes offense at Porsha claiming she is wearing a weave. Kenya hits back, “And then there is Porsha, who relentlessly goes out of her way to imply my hair is a “weave” or that I wear her line of fake hair — all coming from the girl who has never shown her real hair on TV and chooses to wear booty-length full wigs, weaves, and clip-in hair attachments on a daily basis. I don’t judge because that is her choice, however, I have all natural waist length, strong, healthy, thick hair as a result of using my own products.”
As of earlier this week, Kenya’s hair care website still listed her products as pre-order and said they would begin shipping in March (this past March), but Kenya says that they can be purchased now and will begin shipping today, Black Friday. She writes, “Kenya Moore Hair Care is a certified minority woman owned business. It took 5 years, but I did that! Thank you to the iconic and legendary Madame CJ Walker for being my inspiration. Kenya Moore Hare Care can be purchased at KenyaMooreHair.com and ships Black Friday!” I have to mention that today when I open the site, all i get is her logo and a blank screen now. Maybe it’s just my computer and phone that won’t load it….
UPDATED: Tonight the site seems to be back online and ready for orders. 😉
