Late last week, Kenya Moore broke down part one of the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion, paying close attention to Porsha Williams and Phaedra Parks. Kenya also touched on the complaints about unmarried housewives.
But first, Kenya pointed out both the good and the bad about the reunions. As for the positive, she explained, “The reunion represents closure on all levels. I believe most women need closure.”
As for the negative aspect, Kenya shared, “Reunions are tough because you live through filming, then through seeing it on TV, and then again during the reunion. You can feel you have moved on from something difficult and then you have to discuss it and rehash it. I felt good about this reunion, because I have grown so much. I am stronger now and nothing or anyone can destroy me.”

About part one of the reunion, Kenya added, “I was respectful toward Phaedra during the conversation, but it’s clear that after our truce, she still wants to call me a whore and liken me to ‘whores in the bible.’ God does not like ugly. Maybe sitting alone on the sofa now is confirmation.”
Kenya admitted that she had hoped for an apology from Porsha. “You have to own what you do wrong in life. Children are taught that you don’t hit anyone first or at all. Whether provoked or not, isolated incident or not, physically attacking someone is legally and morally incomprehensible. Doing the right thing should be easy. But this is the same person whose grandfather was a greatly respected civil rights activist who fought for non-violence, yet thinks the Underground Railroad was an actual train that took people to freedom.”
Kenya called out Phaedra (hypocrite) and Porsha (resident thot). “In typical fashion Phaedra attacks my character in a preplanned soliloquy. But in her own words, her ‘THOT’ friend thinks that spreading your legs wide open and accepting gifts from married men is admirable. Yet, it’s basically teaching young girls that having a square card reader between your butt cheeks is how one becomes blessed and successful. That’s why I will always be a Queen, literally and figuratively, because when I am wrong, I can apologize, forgive, and move forward. I can love, though I have not always been loved, and I can be talented and successful on my own merit without needing men to finance my lifestyle. I can be the bigger person when others try to bring me down.”
Kenya addressed the complaints about non-married “housewives” on RHOA. “Every Real Housewife franchise has single women, from Beverly Hills to OC to NY to Atlanta. With that said, there are only two Housewives on RHOA that are currently not married, Claudia and myself. In fact, approximately 43 percent of all Black women have never been married. My journey is not unlike the many Black single women who watch our show. Nearly half of Black women want to be married and find true love but are not willing to settle or can’t find the right man. NeNe and her puppet would like everyone to think it’s better to be in a horrible marriage rather than be single.”
“Having said that, I have never received so much love from the viewers as when I was featured on The Millionaire Matchmaker,” continued Kenya. “It made me realize is that I am no different from all the single women around the world looking for real love. My journey is their journey, and ultimately they want me to fall in love with them rooting me on. It happened for Kandi, Kim, Bethenny, Tamra, etc. and it will happen for me too with all of you by my side. Therefore, having single women as Housewives is good for the show. Everyone deserves a chance to be happy. We can inspire and give hope to those looking for love.”
Kenya called out NeNe Leakes, who said on Live With Kelly and Michael that her unmarried co-stars should be fired. “Rumor has it that someone said single women should be fired from RHOA. As such, we wouldn’t have witnessed the beautiful rekindling of NeNe and Gregg’s love or her wedding special,” snarked Kenya. “Therefore, those people clearly didn’t create the successful model for this show. If it’s a play to get me fired… try again. #CatchThatShade”
