If you recall, Kenya Moore toyed with fans a few months ago claiming she had a secret (click HERE if you missed that), while many assumed she was announcing her pregnancy, it’s now clear she’s not. Not yet anyway!
Now, the former beauty queen revealed on The Dr. Oz show that she’s decided to undergo IVF (In-Vitro Fertilization) treatments.
Obviously being Miss USA, it was sorta oxymoronic to what I am doing now. You’re sort of a Barbie doll and you’re presenting your best self to the world and you’re really not put in controversial situations but on reality TV, that’s all you’re put in.
So you get to see me being multi-faced, I’m a three-dimensional person.
I think the definition of being a bully is when you harass or try to intimidate someone or intentionally hurt them and I never do that.
I can stand up for myself but I don’t need to hurt anyone in doing so.
Kenya also speaks about the issues she has with her birth mother. If you recall, during episode 10 of RHOA season 8, we all watched as Kenya and took a camera crew to Detroit to ambush her mother. Kenya repeatedly knocked on her mother’s door, and had to leave disappointed after hearing her mom lock the door (click HERE if you missed that).
Moore addresses her abandonment issues, and states that she’s moved on and finally forgives her mother…
“I think a lot of women have abandonment issues, whether it’s from their fathers or mothers. For me, I had to start with forgiveness. I had to not only forgive my mother for the treatment that I received from her my entire life, but I had to forgive myself. I can’t take the position of I’m judging her because I don’t really know her entire story. And for me to forgive her and to forgive myself, I am releasing myself from that bondage.”
Moore also discussed her desire to be a mother and speaks about her plans for getting pregnant VERY soon….
I am working on it. It’s something I dream about right now and I am obsessed with it. I’ve had a puppy baby.
I am working on undergoing In Vitro [Fertilization] in the next few months so I hope to be a mother in a few months. (source)
[Sidebar: Ok… so Kenya is ‘working’ on going through IVF “in a few months’ and hopes to bear the child “in a few months”? That timeline seems a bit sketchy but I totally wish her the best in her journey.]
In the final segment, Kenya shared a few of her beauty secrets. While we all know Kenya has had a few surgical procedures in her day, she’s now sharing tips on ‘non-surgical’ alternatives… i.e. how a drug store eyebrow template can make you look years younger…
