This time, instead of ‘standing in her truth’ (as Iyanla Vanzant would say), Kenya is passing the buck and blaming another cast mate for her messiness.
Kenya hit her bravo blawg to defend herself against all of the chatter about her spreading vicious rumors about Kim Field’s husband. While we ALL saw it unfold on television (click HERE if you missed the drama), it seems that Kenya is now blaming Phaedra Parks for starting all the gay talk.
Kenya writes on her latest Bravo blawg:
I find it crazy that some viewers believe I started the discussion about Kim?s husband. WRONG. It was Phaedra. Phaedra stated he ?was zesty? and ?had a fire in his pants.? From there, each girl clearly stated that they saw questionable behavior from him (with the exception of Cynthia). The only reason Kim?s husband came up is because he had snapped on several of the women earlier that day. He was snapping his fingers in their faces, yelling at them being rude and ?reading them? during their bus ride home from Jamaica. The girls were shocked as they didn?t see this behavior from him before. Apparently, he was so obnoxious he had to later apologize to all the women.
Collectively, we all saw signs of his dual personality which prompted the discussion about him at all and hence the prevalent gay rumors pre-dating the show. The gay rumors have been around for over 10 years. Anyone can google it–no one made them up. They exist for a reason true or not. Therefore, for me to mention the gay rumors were completely justified within the conversation.
[Sidebar: As I noted my RHOA recap this week, Kenya said on the show that SHE heard the rumors about ‘Kim and her husband’ when Kenya worked with Kim on ‘Living Single’… Kim and Christopher weren’t even together back then.? I wonder why Kenya didn’t address THAT lie.?? But I digress.]
Kenya goes on to reference her favorite gossip sites, stating:
To be fair, no one wants to be gossiped about, but we are publicly known so many believe our lives are fair game. Blogs make millions of dollars off hearsay; TMZ, Perez Hilton, MediaTakeOut, Radar, etc. are all blogs that regurgitate gossip for interesting fodder.
With that said, it was a private conversation, so I was surprised that Sheree mentioned it to Kim, but I can?t fault her for it. I would want to know what is being said about me too.
[Sidebar: I wonder why Kenya didn’t mention StraightFromTheA, since she’s on here trolling the comments everyday…. but again, I digress.]
Whatever the case, Kenya continues to defend her ‘honor’ by also trying to convince the world that she’s not a gay basher… despite the fact that she uses ‘being gay’ as an insult just about anytime she feels threatened.
[Never Forget: Kenya vs. Walter Jackson… ]
Kenya and all her gay friends…
The ex-beauty queen also explains her gay bashing, stating:
I could not care less if a man married to another woman is gay or straight–that?s between two consenting adults. Clearly I have never cared about one?s sexuality. If your partner cheats it would not matter if he is with a man or a woman. Many women marry their best friends who are often gay, and it works for them. I believe a person?s character is what is most important in a friend, lover or husband. Love is love.
One of the reasons I?ve been hesitant to bring someone I?m dating around this group is because they are unpredictable, and you never know how anyone will treat them. Matt is a very sweet and easy going man, but be very clear he is not a punk. The men were clearly being disrespectful and rude to him which sent him into defense mode.
Side note: All single black men under 30 don?t have five babies and five baby mamas. I digress? I?m proud of Matt for not losing his cool and walking away. He made me proud. Peter can learn a few things from Matt, despite his age.
Meanwhile, Phaedra is probably at home still laughing about that pregnancy rumor she started.
Messy… messy… messy!
