Kenya Moore was brutally honest about her take on the Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida drama on the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Kenya described Phaedra as cold-hearted, admitted she has empathy for Apollo, and detailed why she thinks Phaedra set out to smear Apollo the same way she did Kenya.
“Some people love to criticize me for having an opinion about Phaedra and Apollo or anyone else on the show at this point, as if somehow it is never any of my business. Despite the fact that this is a show where we discuss our issues, thoughts, and observations of one another,” said Kenya. “We may not agree, but I am entitled to and allowed to provide my input. We may not agree, however, no one and nothing is off limits when the issues are put out there for public consumption.” I agree. Blogs about the episode are part of the HWs job.

Kenya insisted she’s not judging Phaedra. She’s merely “stating facts, history, and sharing” her opinion.
Kenya also called out viewers for their selective memory. Apparently she didn’t get the memo… we are supposed to give Phaedra a free pass on all the nasty things she said because she’s going through a hard time. <eye roll>
“Additionally, I’d like to point out that Phaedra and one other laughed, taunted, and tried to demean and humiliate me about Walter and my African Prince. In fact, Phaedra took pride in and reveled in the demise of my relationships, challenges having children, and my relationship with my mother. Some viewers have selective memory when it comes to my history on this show. They would like to conveniently forget when she said, ‘You can’t turn a whore into a housewife,’ and that was PRIOR to Apollo accusing me of propositioning him.”
Kenya expressed empathy for Phaedra and Apollo‘s boys. “No one wants to witness the demise of a marriage when there are children involved.” I agree, but Kenya loses me completely when she admitted that she also has empathy for Apollo. Yeah, no. I don’t care for Phaedra, but I think even less of Apollo.
“Phaedra appeared unbothered, stoic, cold-hearted, and condescending. The truth is and remains that they each have said malicious and hurtful things to me to cause public humiliation and disrepute. However, I find myself more empathetic toward Apollo, because the difference between Phaedra and Apollo is that Apollo had the decency to apologize to me for what he had done to me. He showed contrition for his smear campaign and Phaedra has not. She is seemingly proud of what she did to me and has no remorse.”
“Therefore, when I witnessed all the accusations about him threatening to burn the house down, having punched holes in the walls (which we did not see), and her mother stating she doesn’t want to come home and find ‘everybody dead,’ it seemed to me like another one of her smear campaigns, thereby making it easier to defend the cheating allegations coming down the pike.”
Kenya continued to explain why she feels for Apollo. And she threw a little Mr. Chocolate shade at Phaedra.
“What I see without any manipulation is a man who is hurting, angry, and afraid that he will lose his children because Phaedra refuses to bring them to see him in prison and who also believes his wife has moved on with another man before the bed even got cold. By his account, his wife, who promised to be with him until death do them part, really meant until ‘Chocolate’ do them part.”
Moving on to Celebrity Apprentice, Kenya shared, “It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. I received so much praise from people who actually preferred to watch me in my boss mode than on RHOA, understandably so. Although I didn’t win the title, as such, I won big because the kids of Detroit won $20,000! Despite the attempts to attack my character and integrity, I thank the fans who believed me and Donald Trump himself who stated he believed I had nothing to do with #phonegate.”
Kenya continued, “Thank you for showing your support and keeping me on top with respect to the ratings! Team Twirl has spoken and the world heard you loud and clear!” Finally, speaking of twirl, Kenya revealed that Life Twirls On will premiere on TV in April. Wow… color me shocked… but excited.
