I was the first to spill the tea that Kenya Moore would be the new addition on The Real Housewives of Atlanta and even then everyone gave me the side-eye.

It’s no secret that I gloat when I’m right. And when I spill this TEA right here… you all will probably be looking just as perplexed.
When Kenya joined RHOA, she didn’t hold any of the 3 criteria of an official “housewife” i.e. Relationship, Family (kids), Career. Clearly husband’s are optional, but baby daddy’s count in the relationship section. But I digress…

We clown them about being married, but “housewives” are usually required to have all three.
Miss I Wanna Be An Atlanta Housewife Miss USA Kenya only had one. Career. And I heard that she literally begged to be considered for the show because she needed the check. Point… blank…. period.
Moore was apparently told that her “relationship” issue was a factor and Kenya is rumored to have assured casting that she had a suitor on deck and they were on the road to marriage.
Enter Walter Jackson…

Are you ready for the truth about Kenya and Walter?
For those of you around town who know Walter this won’t be a surprise, but for all others: WARNING! Spoiler alert!
Of course you know Walter wasn’t Kenya’s first choice.
Her first mark was former Atlanta Falcons player Jamal Anderson, whom she dated off and on a few years back.

Being somewhat of an Atlanta celeb himself, Jamal’s real life issues didn’t jive with Moore’s plans for a spectacular RHOA wedding.
Walter on the other hand was perfect.
He was an “average” guy, who was pretty well known around Atlanta. He’s even dated a few friends of mine, so trust me when I tell you, Walter is NOT an actor.
Those facial expressions Walter gives you on the show are apparently genuine.
Walter didn’t have a clue that Kenya was actually trying to get him to marry her so that she could have a real live RHOA on-air wedding like Cynthia Bailey & Peter Thomas.
Walter’s motivation for appearing on the show was a little bit simpler. He’s rumored to have said that he felt kicking it with the former Miss USA would up his stock… and it probably did. (CLICK HERE to meet ONE of Walter’s many young conquests).
RHOA filmed all the couples in Anguilla last Summer and I heard that it was there that Walter was finally let in on Kenya’s “wedding” plans.
Apparently Peter Thomas said something to him along the lines of, ‘if you don’t ask her here, it’s a wrap for you two,‘ to which Walter looked DEAD into the cameras (a huge no-no!) and said something like ‘well I may as well pack it up now’!
I’m paraphrasing of course but hopefully the conversation doesn’t end up on the editing room floor.
I heard… Kenya got so pissed at Walter’s blatant diss that she tried to embarrass him on national television by proclaiming to the cameras (and again… I’m paraphrasing)…
“I know why Walter doesn’t want me. I’ve been keeping his secret. He’s Gay!”
Ummm…. ma’am! You are in violation. One thing that man is NOT is gay… trust. We’ve heard stories about Mr. Walter Jackson, and none of them were from a gay man!
All I know is… Kenya’s salty because Walter doesn’t want her and now she’s going around saying he’s Gay as if no straight man would turn her down.
