Real Housewives of Atlanta Kenya Moore the Wild Card

Real Housewives of AtlantaReal Housewives of Atlanta has a cast that never ceases to amaze its audience. When viewers look at the six affluent African-American women holding their Georgia peach during the opening of the popular reality show, it is hard to believe that any of these women would be at war with one another. As viewers pick their jaws up off the ground learning more and more about who these women actually are, whether on or off camera, Bravo TV is possibly sitting back toasting champagne to high ratings, sweeter checks, and hoping for an even more drama filled new season. The cast, however, endures bitter-sweet success of love and hate from the show’s fans. Cast member Kenya Moore, however, has received hate from both the cast and fans reportedly more than any other Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member. True followers of the reality show are back tracking to the beginning to determine where the wild card could have possibly went so wrong, that fellow cast mates would take to the media on a campaign to assassinate her character.

The Detroit born former Miss USA has been labeled “Kenya Moore Whore” by attorney and funeral director Phaedra Parks. When women are given such an offensive title as “whore”, there is usually evidence of a list of men the woman has been intimate with. While Parks continues to call Moore a whore, she tells the viewers that Moore has been with “invisible” men. An intelligent person will begin to question the attorney as to how a woman can be a whore with men who, according to Parks, do not exist. How does a woman sleep with a list of invisible men and then get the label “whore?” Where is this list of men that Moore has slept with to earn the title “Moore Whore?”

Parks’ husband, Apollo Nida, who has a documented criminal history, serving time in prison for victimizing unsuspecting citizens, has embarrassed his wife by demonstrating time and time again, on the reality show, that he is obsessed with Moore. It was proven to Parks, on the show, that her husband initiated the text messaging with Moore. Moore showed fellow cast mate Kandi Burruss that she did not say anything inappropriate in the text messages to Parks’ husband. Moore tried to speak with Parks about the situation, but Parks avoided the conversation. Nida, feeling rejected with a bruised ego, further embarrassed his wife by having the need to declare repeatedly that he could have Moore. What husband tells his wife he could have another woman if wanted to? Parks, possibly saving face, went on the victim tour to talk shows Arsenio Hall and Bethenny slandering Moore. Moore found herself being forced to defend her character by questioning Nida in front of the Bravo cameras. As Nida is currently dealing with yet another federal investigation of identity theft and stealing employee retirement checks, he gave an in-depth interview with Sister 2 Sister magazine. Nida came clean that nothing happened between he and Moore. There is documentation that supports Nida is not a man to be trusted, and a book titled Lies of a Real Housewife describing Parks’ alleged participation in Nida’s criminal behavior. Parks continues the defamation of Moore’s character without any proof or evidence to back up her accusations. However, fans that believe Parks is insulting their intelligence, are turning the magnifying glass away from Moore and onto Parks. How does a self-proclaimed successful, highly intellectual attorney maintain she had no knowledge of her husband’s reported $3 million criminal operation?

Moore and Parks, once upon a time, were becoming friends until they had the idea to work together on a fitness DVD. The excitement to work with Parks was quickly killed when Parks decided Moore was not worth the money she was asking for as a producer. Adding insult to injury, Parks devalued Moore as a business woman by not wanting to negotiate Moore’s offer. Parks clearly demonstrated she wanted the fans to know who was top dog. Supporters of Real Housewives of Atlanta saw this as the beginning of the disrespect between Moore and Parks, festering into a full on war. Others believe it was when Parks, after learning that Moore was going to produce her own fitness DVD, began slandering the former beauty queen by using personal information against Moore that she had shared with Parks about her mother’s mental illness. Parks insinuated that Moore was like her mother – mentally ill and on medication. Moore, being the wild card that she is, responded to the dirty, low blow. The war took on a life of its own.

When Moore made her first debut on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, veteran NeNe Leakes appeared to take a liking to her. As fans began showing love to Moore for her quick-witted one liners and fearless defense antics against anyone who crossed her, Leakes reportedly started turning on Moore. Infamous for turning on her friends, Leakes started verbally attacking Moore during an unfortunate violent assault onto Moore’s friend and recurring guest Brandon DeShazer. Moore walked into an ambush as Leakes began asking inflammatory questions geared toward Moore. Moore, going into defense mode, stood up to address the question and was grabbed by a male guest. DeShazer quickly got up to protect his female friend and was violently attacked by Nida, resulting in DeShazer suffering a cracked rib. Leakes, pointing her finger in Moore’s face, shouting and blocking Moore from going to check on DeShazer, immediately placed blame on Moore for starting the brawl. Though being provoked and violated by Leakes, Moore did not result to violence.

Many fans have since taken to Twitter and Facebook posting actual footage of Leakes “violating” and provoking Dwight Eubanks, Peter Thomas, Kandi Burrus, and former cast mate Kim Zolciak. Leakes allegedly choked Zolciak in a parking lot resulting in Zolciak calling 911. Zolciak was reportedly asked not to press charges against Leakes who already had a police record.

Cast mate Porsha Williams recently turned herself into the authorities after Moore called 911 during the taping of Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion special. Williams maintains she “blacked out” and was provoked to violently attack Moore. From the start of the reunion, Parks, Leakes, and Williams made it clear they had come for blood. Fans have played part one to the reunion taping many times to watch Parks, Leakes, and Williams fire gutter insults at Moore first. Moore, going into defense mode and keeping in the spirit of entertainment, pulled out props for the television viewers. Dressed in a ball gown, Moore, in jest, pulled out a toy scepter she reportedly purchased from a children’s store. Williams aggressively snatched the scepter out of Moore’s hand. Moore received laughs as she entertained cast mates by pulling out a megaphone to keep Williams from speaking over her. Williams did not let the megaphone stop her from calling Moore a whore from the 1990s. Moore spoke into the megaphone to defend herself. Williams jumped up from her seat and grabbed Moore by her hair flinging her to the floor and proceeded to drag her across the stage. Moore, never once using the toy scepter or megaphone as a weapon to fight off the violent assault, calmly got up, went to her dressing room, and called the police. Williams suffered an emotional breakdown as she lay crying and screaming on the floor regretting what she had done to Moore. Leakes, placing both hands over Williams’ mouth to stop her from saying too much, defended Williams stating Moore violated and provoked Williams to physically attack her.

Many fans began looking at early episodes to determine when the bitterness between Williams and Moore started. The first season the two made their debut on Real Housewives of Atlanta, Williams and Moore met for the first time for lunch. Williams made judgments about Moore being over the age of 40 and unwed without children. Moore was offended. But in watching the footage, fans saw that Moore did not react or respond negatively Williams’ judgment of her. Williams invited Moore to a charity event she was hosting only to devalue Moore’s pageant title as Miss USA. Moore excused herself from the event. Williams chased after her, igniting their very first heated argument. The battle still continues.

Moore, who has shared with viewers the pain of having a mother who never acknowledged she existed and a cold, detached father, has demonstrated she can be a wild card that can take any attack and keep going with very little support. Ironically the cast mates persuading viewers to believe Moore is a bully and a “whore” are the same cast mates with reported criminal dealings, aggressive violent behavior, swinging around a pole in a thong for tips from married men, and being labeled the “head doctor” by guests who have come on the show.

While Moore takes the jabs and keeps moving forward on to Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice, much of the public is starting to question why Williams hopped on the victim tour. One stop on the victim tour was The View with co-host Sherri Shepherd to possibly get sympathy to keep her out of jail. The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion part three will air Sunday night without Williams as she was told by host Andy Cohen that violence was not the way and was sent home. Bravo fans will watch Moore contend with the Leakes and Parks two on one verbal assault. Moore will stand alone while holding her own without support. As fans go back to watch early episodes of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, the opinion of the wild card is slowly shifting in Moore’s favor. Compared to her cast mates, the wild card isn’t so wild. The accusations about Kenya Moore being a “whore” and a bully do not make sense. However, the suspect past behavior of Williams, Leakes, and Parks are all reportedly documented in a court system in the state Georgia. And to most intelligent people, no matter how Williams, Parks, and Leakes spin it in the reunion, documentation beats conversation any day. Will the real bully and “whore” please stand up?

    Kenya is a self centered sorry excuse for a woman. Besides the fact she looks like a man, she is rude, corky and often ignorant. She needs to stop crying, go crawl in a hole and live out the rest of her pathetic life in silence. Just get her off tv.

      Spoken like a true Nene fan, the purveyor of all the lies on RHOA. Funny how so many people follow like sheep.

    I think the Moore-Whore moniker is being overthought. I interpret it to mean that she will sleep with anyone– married or not and that she has an invisible man because no one wants to commit to her. It’s not because she has a line of men waiting to sleep with her but more of no man at all to claim her.

    I don’t like parks a nasty little piece of oops. How dare she uses kenyas mother illness as a weapon towards kenya. Kenya keep your head held high. I love you and love you in RHOA, the girls are just jealous because you were once Miss USA!!! Now parks as for her, you have to remember she married nida knowing he was a criminal so I don’t know what all the fuss is she’s divorcing him and she went into the relationship knowing this. I hear she married him for his looks and to get pretty babies because she sure ain’t pretty ouch…parks has a screwed up face and needs to stop pulling them ugly shots on rhoa

    I do not like nor do I dislike Kenya, as I do not know her personally. I am not going to make a judgment of her character based on the TV show. Having said that, from what was shown on the reunion, I do however think that she is equally responsible for the altercation. It doesn’t make any difference if it was for TV or not, there are some things a person simply does not do to another person.

      I have decided I do not like Kenya based on her TV actions, I mean there may be a certain amount of acting, but this is a reality show. We do get to see some of who they really are. And, her behavior on The Celebrity Apprentice was just more of the same, causing Vivica Fox to check her and Donald Trump Firing her stating she was the most evil woman he had ever met.

  5. Rhonda Russell   May 18, 2014 at 2:23 pm

    Well I definitely do agree with the writer and I think they all provoke each other.

    Kenya does not deserve the negativity she gets from the other cast members. Kenya has made this show interesting as it was losing people before she came along. Nene is awful. She is arrogant and the rich bit$h days are numbered. You have to watch yourself in this game. Because only being worth 1.5 million you don’t have anything to brag about. Now Kandi can call herself that because she has real wealth. But Nene is barely a millionaire. Her millionaire status can be gone in a few months. Porsha started out on the show talking about her picture perfect life and you see what happened to that…her husband dumped her and didn’t even have to give her any money when there was no prenup. Who divorces a man with Cordell’s wealth and gets nothing…..only an idiot…Nene better humble herself before she ends up broke and a has been. Cynthia is the nicest person on the show, but Kenya is a force to be reckoned with. Being from Detroit, these Southern women are no match for Kenya. She knows how to be tough. She played Porsha like a fine piano. Dealing with Kenya, Porsha ended up with a mugshot and pending charges to deal with and Kenya never lost her cool and looked good before, during and after. A true diva. They are no match for Kenya on this show. I think Mrs. Phaedra better watch how many names she calls Kenya, because people are going to realize more and more she isn’t who she claims to be. If you knew the way she met Apollo you would realize how desperate she was. She is supposed to be successful, so why did she literally pick a convict up off the street and marry him, now who’s the slut. She is the desperate housewife of the bunch, but she claims to be a southern belle. Yeah right. Kenya needs her own show, because truly these women are no match for her wit, humor and intellect. Kenya can roll with the best of them and handle herself like a lady while keeping these women constantly in check. Apollo had the opportunity to rise above his past and he chose to be who he really is and revisit the prison system. If Phaedra didn’t know anything about Apollo’s illegal activity, after knowing his past, it just shows how incompetent she is as an attorney, a wife, and a woman. Because anybody would keep a close eye on a ex-con when they have a reputation to maintain. Cute is a dime a dozen and Phaedra keeps showing people who she really is….only some of us are paying attention. What about her deep infatuation with women’s butts……there is something just not wholesome and ladylike about that Phaedra. If Apollo wanted him a freak when he got out of jail…he really picked the right woman…Phaedra the Head Doctor.

    • getreal2014   May 10, 2014 at 11:17 pm

      You summed everything up perfectly, especially the part about everyone not paying attention. Phaedra makes zero sense, and the way she leered at those women was disgusting. But, her filthy mouth takes the whole darn bakery, She’s vile.

    Strange there are a lot of people on this site that are team Kenya???do they lack morals, do they enjoy the company of liars and lets not leave out BULLY, Kenya is NO queen, if she is her crown is tarnish, that Miss USA title from the yesteryears should be taken away…this woman from the very first episode 2 years ago went on the attack toward everyone she came in contact with, and if Bravo is even considering giving this woman her own show ( She’s a bully)they should be held accountable for any of her future actions, she’s a loose cannon, she’s psychologically damaged goods, her history is questionable???No history of any normal relationships with men and she hangs out with ALL of the people on the show that I personally would not have anything to do with, if Bravo continue to keep this horrible person on their show I and many others will stop watching Kenya Moore is not fun to watch.

  8. Kenyaisawhore   May 5, 2014 at 6:40 pm

    Kenya Moore has a bridal picture that’s on the internet, the groom in the picture is a Doctor, a very married Doctor. the Doctor had to pay Kenya in order to get rid of her, Yes, they had an affair. but the Doctor picked his wife and children over Kenya, Kenya threaten this guy, she was going to blackmail him. So the statement that Phaedra make about Kenya being a Whore is correct, if you notice she goes after men who are not available, men who are single have dissed Kenya (Walter, she stated he was gay, remember)
