The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast members have been co-hosting on The Real all week and Kenya Moore had so much fun earlier this week that they asked her back again for today’s show. She opened up a little about dating Matt Jordan and admits that she really cares for him. Could it finally be the real deal for Miss Twirl?
When asked what’s going on in her love life, Kenya “confesses” that Matt is 16 years younger than her. She says he’s “6’7″, chocolate, and full of muscles.” Adding, “He’s about 16 years younger than me. So there is quite an age difference, but he’s wonderful. He’s kind, he’s sweet, he’s intelligent. And he loves me.”
Jeannie Mai asked her to dish on him some more, asking”What’s the number one thing you like most about him?” and Kenya says, “Well, I think because he’s so generous. Not with necessarily money, but he is. But his time, his emotions. Like he’s very giving.” She says she really likes him.
Tamera Mowry remarks that Kenya’s face lights up when she talks about Matt. “Well, it’s been about a year and a half. And you know, we’re still figuring things out. Because my experience is one thing and relationships. And, of course he hasn’t had as much as I have. So… sometimes you know, we lock horns. I feel like I am trying to be patient and I don’t want to emasculate him. It’s just like, you know, this constant power struggle.” She adds, “I think a lot it is because he’s younger. Yes, and maybe sometimes we just don’t speak the same language. You know?”
Jeannie asks for an example of something that makes Kenya think, “Oh my God. He’s so young!” She says, “I don’t know any… Umm anything in particular because it happens a lot. But just like fighting for things I post on Instagram. Like little silly things that I’m like, ‘If I were dating someone much older. I wouldn’t be fighting about stuff like this.'”
Later in the show the ladies discuss keeping relationships private or sharing with the public. Kenya says “I was in Hollywood for twenty years and nobody ever knew who I was dating. Long term relationships – 4 years, 3 years and no one ever knew because I kept it private because I didn’t want people in my business. I think you have a better chance at survival in a relationship if you keep your private life private but since I’m on a reality show it’s like the opposite of that. I’m almost forced to show my relationship and I do think it takes a toll.”
