Kenya Moore Offers Some Advice To Mama Joyce; Discusses Her Own Absent Mother!


For once Kenya Moore is sounding more sane than crazy. Fluke or… fluke? Reacting to last week's episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta where Mama Joyce Said Yes To The Cray-Cray (Say Yes To The Psych Ward?), Kenya offers some advice and some commentary. 

"I recently served as maid of honor for one of my best friends. I consider myself as her family. When Mama Joyce told Carmon it was a family affair, I was offended for her. I have been in the company of Mama Joyce many times and she is a sweet, caring, warm person. Having said that, even when emotions are running high, it is never a reason to be taken out of character," Kenya writes in her Bravo blog. Quite agree!  

"I was disappointed to see her take off her shoes as if to prepare for battle or throw them at Kandi [Burruss]s BFF from childhood, whom she considers a daughter herself," Kenya continues. "Mama Joyce must contain her inner angst and allow Kandi to live her life, trust that Kandi will protect herself, and understand that she instilled the values in Kandi that have made her the sharp, successful business woman she is today."


Kenya also reveals a little more about her own struggles with her absent mother. "Ironically, I would rather have a mother that acts inappropriately to protect me than not have a mother at all." Kenya considers her Aunt Lori to be a mother figure after her own mother abandoned her. 

Kenya's biological mother has "never spoken" to her. "Even if present in the same room with other people and family, she pretends that I simply don’t exist. She pretends I’m invisible." Wow – that is horrible for Kenya. How sad. 

Kenya agrees with her aunt that this leads her to choose inappropriate men. "I fully understand that there has been a void in my life because of this, which relates to my romantic relationships. I have never had any issues with falling in love, dating, sustaining long-term relationships, or attracting great men in my life, who have loved me unconditionally."

"Although I have had now seven proposals of marriage, I have never accepted one," Kenya shares. Um… wait a second, exactly HOW many proposals are we talking about? Real proposals or like um… Walter-esque proposals?"

"As my Aunt pointed out, I choose 'unavailable men.' I’ve never wanted a married man or one that is in a relationship," Kenya explains. "I acknowledge I have a pattern of falling for men who are emotionally unavailable, physically unavailable in terms of distance, or categorically unavailable with respect to time or where they are in life." 

Well at least Kenya took a break from twirling and twerking on the edge of insanity to sound rational for a change. Good to switch up those personalities girl! 

Tonight is a brand new episode of RHOA. The ladies head to Savannah for a girls weekend, except no one is getting along and Kandi loses it on Kenya over histrionics. It's another busride to hell – so watch out! 

Reality Tea will be live-tweeting the episode, so make sure to join us.
