The fallout from Kenya Moore’s charity event is getting messier by the minute!
Earlier today Saving Our Daughters released a statement, sharing that they had not received any donations from Kenya’s fundraiser masquerade ball – aside from a $500 one for their annual doll drive. Kenya is firing back tonight with proof ..sort of?
Kenya turned to lovebscott.com to share texts between her and the head of Saving Our Daughters and also to show off some receipt proof of how much she donated and how much spent on the event. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star coughed up a canceled check for $500 – possibly the check for the toy drive and a few other receipts for some of the costs of the party. She claims she spent $10,000 on the event when all was said and done.
Update: Saving Our Daughters has removed the statement from their website.
We're sad to hear that Kenya Moore did not donate the money raised at her charity event in NeNe Leakes' honor! This was confirmed this afternoon by Saving Our Daughters.
The organization released a statement this afternoon. First, they confirm that NeNe is indeed a strong supporter of their charity. Second, they confirm that they have NOT receive any monies raised in their name at Kenya's event that was shown on last week's episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Their statement begins: "On February 16, 2014, Saving Our Daughters was mentioned on the episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta as being honored with a fundraiser on its behalf. Our charity was contacted by publicist April Love to get approval and give notice of this upcoming event. Much to our delight, we were indeed honored to be chosen. After all, one of our largest financial contributors, Mrs. NeNe Leakes who has been responsible for contributions in the thousands of dollars throughout the years, is a member of the cast."
In Palm Springs, Reza proposed to his boyfriend, Adam Neely. He said yes!
"Turning forty was mentally difficult for me," Reza shared. "I started to compare and contrast my achievements and place in life against my friends and family. Being gay, there really wasn't a road map for a future. I had to lay the stones on my road brick by brick. I came to the realization that I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be. I started looking at Adam differently and I knew that it was time to let him know how important he is to me."
The former Couples Therapy star was rushed to the hospital after she collapsed where an emergency surgery was performed to save her life.
"I'm still working from the ICU. This has been the toughest week of my life, but my love for Shayne Lamas has grown tremendously," husband Nik Richie shared of Shayne's condition. "My wife is a true fighter. Her heart gave out on Valentine's Day and we had to start the rehabilitation process all over again."
She starts off, "I’ll start by saying I apologize for my behavior at the charity event. I definitely don’t want to teach young women that this is the proper way to respond when someone is trying to trick you into a situation and push your buttons. I would much rather teach young women to be aware of the wolves in sheep’s clothing."
NeNe reiterates that this charity event was not to honor NeNe – it was for Kenya's own thrills. "Kenya used the charity’s name for her own selfish reasons."
Something curious has happened to Tom 1 over the course of Vanderpump Rules. He's grown from a boy to a man. He has freed himself from the shackles of Kristen Doute's psychotic tyranny and Stassi Schroeder's emotional manipulations and terrible party planning. He has flourished from a sad, aimless emotional wrecking ball to a proud manish metrosexual.
Last night Tom 1 let his anger roar as he took down Stassi, put Kristen in her place, and practically ground Jax Taylor's aging meathead under his boot heel. And never did a hair bend out of shape! Is Ariana Madix responsible for this surge in testosterone – as if releasing himself from Kristen has allowed Tom 1's poor shriveled manliness to blossom Phoenix-style.
Whatever – I was impressed. Take no prisoners Tom. Actually, no, do take Jax prisoner and lock him away from the rest of us because boy deserves to do hard time not these puny 'you can keep your designer sweater' jail stints!
