Kenya Moore wants us to take another look at the tapes. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is shocked that viewers think she started the gay rumor talk about Kim Fields’ husband Chris. She sets the record straight and also says that Peter Thomas could learn a thing or two from Matt Jordan.
Kenya started her Bravo blog by clearing up who it was that started this discussion about Kim’s husband, “I find it crazy that some viewers believe I started the discussion about Kim’s husband. WRONG. It was Phaedra. Phaedra stated he “was zesty” and “had a fire in his pants.'”
She continued, “From there, each girl clearly stated that they saw questionable behavior from him (with the exception of Cynthia). The only reason Kim’s husband came up is because he had snapped on several of the women earlier that day. He was snapping his fingers in their faces, yelling at them being rude and “reading them” during their bus ride home from Jamaica. The girls were shocked as they didn’t see this behavior from him before. Apparently, he was so obnoxious he had to later apologize to all the women.”
Kenya explained that the bus incident is part of why the discussion came up in the first place, “Collectively, we all saw signs of his dual personality which prompted the discussion about him at all and hence the prevalent gay rumors predating the show. The gay rumors have been around for over 10 years. Anyone can google it–no one made them up. They exist for a reason true or not. Therefore, for me to mention the gay rumors were completely justified within the conversation.”
She doesn’t fault Sheree Whitfield for telling Kim what the ladies talked about. “To be fair, no one wants to be gossiped about, but we are publicly known so many believe our lives are fair game. Blogs make millions of dollars off hearsay; TMZ, Perez Hilton, MediaTakeOut, Radar, etc. are all blogs that regurgitate gossip for interesting fodder. With that said, it was a private conversation, so I was surprised that Sheree mentioned it to Kim, but I can’t fault her for it. I would want to know what is being said about me too.”
Kenya says she’s got no issue with sexual orientation, “I could not care less if a man married to another woman is gay or straight–that’s between two consenting adults. Clearly I have never cared about one’s sexuality. If your partner cheats it would not matter if he is with a man or a woman. Many women marry their best friends who are often gay, and it works for them. I believe a person’s character is what is most important in a friend, lover or husband. Love is love.”
On to the awkwardness between Matt and the other Househusbands, Kenya was proud of him for just walking away and says that Peter could take a page from his book. “One of the reasons I’ve been hesitant to bring someone I’m dating around this group is because they are unpredictable, and you never know how anyone will treat them. Matt is a very sweet and easy going man, but be very clear he is not a punk. The men were clearly being disrespectful and rude to him which sent him into defense mode. Side note: All single black men under 30 don’t have five babies and five baby mamas. I digress… I’m proud of Matt for not losing his cool and walking away. He made me proud. Peter can learn a few things from Matt, despite his age.”
