Kenya Moore calls Walter Jackson’s allegations that their relationship was fake ‘deceitful’

“Real Housewives of Atlanta” actress (yes, that’s what we shall call her now) Kenya Moore claims that Walter Jackson, the local tow-truck owner, was “deceitful” and “hateful” in his allegations on V-103’s Frank & Wanda morning show that she orchestrated their relationship just for the TV show.

She gave an exclusive statement to Wendy Williams, who read it on her show today:

Walter’s recent statements are completely false. I am embarrassed that I allowed a deceitful and hateful person in my life. He says he did it for fame. I’ve been humiliated enough by appearing desperate for a man to marry me who has his own agenda. I urge viewers to stay tuned. The truth will come to light. I have heard the fans and my friends loud and clear. I can do better than Walter and I will.

Williams complimented Moore for being a “polished performer” but “I don’t believe a word. I believe what Walter said. You wanted a boyfriend. Otherwise, Bravo wouldn’t let her on the show… I know it’s very embarrassing this was all exposed. I know that in a great but small city like Atlanta you can’t go anywhere. You can’t go to the bank or the grocery store. Everyone is laughing at you. Crazy!”

Here’s what Walter had to say on Monday morning about his so-called “relationship” with Moore.

I think she has deep, unresolved issues. She probably has low self-esteem and that could be directly related to her mother not acknowledging her (if we are to believe that is true). Doing this show, or any reality show for that matter, was not a wise decision on her part. Unfortunately, when you put yourself out there like that, you open yourself up to all the harsh and maybe even unfair criticism that comes your way.

Kenya is the poster child for what is wrong with beautiful, successful, independant black women in the U.S. The scenes with her throwing herself at married men on camera right infront of their wives suggest that she has very low self-esteem. I have been a fan for years and those scenes were painful to watch

To Peggy: What do you mean by your above comment? “Kenya is the poster child for what is wrong with beautiful, successful, independent black women.” ???? Please explain! Kenya represents Kenya and no one else. She has made that perfectly clear. Secondly, you should broaden your perspective of beautiful, successful, independent black women. Perhaps your circle of them are reflective of Kenya, but please note that is a very small percentage…..not the masses. You should know better than that. Don’t let “Reality TV” be your Reality. My time is limited to respond to you, but I wish I could take the time to point out a list of powerful, productive, beautiful, successful independent black women. As a matter of fact, Forbes Magazine just released an amazing list from Africa. Black Enterprise Magazine recently underscored some dynamic sisters doing awesome things in their respective industry – - without the drama that is aired on television networks pimping others who chose to do otherwise. Come on now! Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc., will help you research them out. Kenya is Kenya. Don’t get it twisted!!!

I don’t know what she meant by “I know that in a great but small city like Atlanta you can’t go anywhere. You can’t go to the bank or the grocery store. Everyone is laughing at you. Crazy!” I get the great but small (we aren’t LA or NYC), but by “you can’t go anywhere?” Is that because of our construction, or does it mean we don’t have suitable RHOA locales?

Kat, what Wendy meant was not a slam at Atlanta. “You (Kenya)
can’t go anywhere” meant that Kenya can’t go anywhere now without being ridiculed for having been exposed. She can’t go to the store, can’t go to the bank, etc. without everyone knowing what she did.

Okkkkkaaaaay. Kenya paid Walter to be her husband. So what?

Dejavu? Remember Kim Kardashian who faked everything from a marraige (she’s being currently sued for), to scripted everything on the Kardashians.

And lets not forget the drama around her exes & agents exposing Kardashian’s plastic surgery she claimed to be “natural.” i.e. – “Xrays” which don’t show a fat injected bootey doesn’t prove authenticity.

. The Kardashians make Ms Kenya look like the realest thing in a reality show. We like drama, we like fantasy, this is what we get…She wasn’t able to cover her tracks long enough, like Ms Kardashian the fat-graft queen.

I hate that it has to come to this with our beautiful black women doing a fake reality show. I only wish this show could have been used for a postive platform showing real housewives doing what they do in their everyday lives. Helping the kids with their home work; Volunteer in the community; Being their for their husband; Cooking a real meal, Mentor for young girls etc. and Also working at a real job or being the CEO of their own business from home. Come on NOW! YOU LADIES ARE QUEENS!!! NOT TRASH SO STOP IT!!!

Leave Kenya alone. The relationship wasnt fake. Ask Walter how long he knew Kenya and how long have they been dating and sleeping together. The show probably felt well, she is your girlfriend after all and it would be natural to think the relationship may end in marriage without the show and they decided to expedite it. He is making it seem like he just met Kenya like they were complete strangers before the show and she just decided to go on a trip and sleep in the same bed as a random dude from Atlanta….. ah no. He knows he was in a relationship with her before RHOA and it probably is true that the show offered him cash to do what should have come natural in a relationship except on the show. It will be fun to see Kenya go out on new dates now and I hope she catches a younger ATL baller that will appreciate all she has accomplished in her life, despite her childhood. She may end up with a Prince Charming like Kim. Kenya is still the prettiest ‘housewife”, I like her and besides she isnt afraid of Nene. Hold your head up Kenya, everyone makes mistakes.

FYI, for those complaining that most of the women on RHOA are not housewives, I’m assuming you don’t watch the other Real Housewives Shows because if you did, you will see that it’s not just RHOA that has very few wives on the show. Do your homework before complaining.

Reality shows are now considered to be a staple of american entertainment. These shows are seemingly what the masses reflect as true entertainment by today’s standard. They have literally taken over the entire tv schedule. What is the attraction to such shows? Is becoming a peeping tom to the supposedly authentic life issues of celebritities or real people a commonality now? Do we like confrontational antics, foul language, or overt sexuality by these “actors”. These shows certainly would not be a success if the masses didn’t watch them religiously. There seems to be a theme in hollywood for African-American women to be only reality tv stars but nothing more substantive in terms of jobs or opportunities. So, i guess the sista’s are grabbing their 60 minutes of fame by getting paid. Hollywood has always been the easiest route to gain a fortune. So, people sell out for the money, lifestyle, and noteriety. Televison is scripted as well as many other forms of enterntainment. People are told what, who, how, when, and where by those producers/directors. These shows will continue to thrive due to popular demand.

First, I think kenya is a beautiful intelligent woman. She certainly isn’t the first woman who has “supposedly” chased a man or seemed desperate to marry, especially those who are older. I do not believe the relationship was fake. It remains to be seen, what type of relationship is actually was. I think Walter was wrong for making such a damaging statement. If it was a scheme, he is a part of it. Furthermore, there are some rumors floating around the internet about Walter, that does not exactly cast him in the brightest light either.

Secondly, it is obvious that Kenya may have some emotional issues that are a little more than that which is typical. It has to be hard to admit to the world that your mother has some mental health problems. Everyone of us, wants and needs to feel loved and wanted,but especially by our own parents. Of course she would have some problems. And if you care to admit it, we all are damaged in some way. The question is to what degree. But again, in spite of that, she seems to have managed her life and career. And whether she has a smidgeon of her mothers mental health issues,in my mind remain to be seen. I truly wish her well.

@Carmen, do you know Kenya personally? Your post sure was personal. Girl, go sit down somewhere. Kenya is doing just fine. The whole show is fake. Who lets a women rub her azz on their man. And Apollo participated. Kenya is 3 years older than Phaedra, so in your little world, they’re both old. And from your post, you sound 12!

Kenya was exposed. It’s all good. Reality TV is far from reality. But, this show is my shameful pleasure

Kenya, has some serious issues. First, you shouldn’t beg any man to marry you or have a child with you ever. You are making your self look bad and that’s why men don’t respect women who put themselves out there like that and beg for a relationship. I think she has some issues that can only be resolve with therapy.

I love RHOA! It’s reality people. If you don’t like it quit watching. NeNe is my favorite. If Kenya wants to play the part of being a desperate 40 something, let her. Remember she is getting paid. Enjoy the entertainment folk because that what it is? Can’t wait until Sunday night…

It’s sad and unfortunate but Kenya Moore has become a classless act. She’s always so combative, there are obviously some emotional and mental issues. Why flirt with someone’s husband, boyfriend or whomever? Her face and attitude match flawed.
Are there some real housewives who live in Atlanta with class? Some of the of the characters such as Phaedra, Khandi, Kenya, have no class!!! These three are just alley.

Giving what’s on tv these days, what can you believe? The title along is wrong for the people who are being portrayed. From the beginning, it wasn’t about housewifes. I know some people live for fame and stardom, but at what cost? Is it all about getting a paycheck and the hell with morales? The way these FEMALES are acting, is this the kind of fame you really want? Phaedra exposing her azz on national tv and she is an attorney. Are you serious? What kind of image is that? I know Apollo don’t care given his background. Kandis has never been a housewife, so I’m not understand her role except she fits right in with mess/gossip. Kim is finally gone; however, she never should have been casted. She wasn’t a housewife in the beginning. She worked her legs open to finally become one. Porsha is clueless. What was Cordell thinking? Maybe he was hit too many times playing football helmet-to-helmet. I guess he maried for looks and the hell with the rest, because she has nothing else. Cynthia is just as clueless. While it’s true she had modeling, there’s nothing else happening upstairs. Now Kenya, what a joke. You constantly mentions your Mis USA title. Get over yourself…..those days are gone/over. How long ago was it again? Your looks have left you since then. Besides once being Miss USA, something else must be missing because you can’t seem to land a husband (which you seem so desperate for). Keep working on Apollo. He’s seems to be WILLING to participate in some behind the scene action with you. Phaedra can keep talking to the camera in the diary room; however, her husband is interested in playing. I’m sure this wouldn’t be his first time. I’m not sure why NeNe is such a star now. She’s just as messy as the others.

In closing, yes it’s all reality tv, but at what cost do you want to be portrayed? I guess the mighty dollar is what’s it’s really about. The hell with image, especially being a FEMALE.

I’m sure these reality shows may be possibly scripted, but it still does not change the fact that Kenya Moore is a jealous, low self-esteem, mean and crazy ugly outside and in women, I think she also has a complex about her completion. Kenya is almost 46 yrs old and her career has gone nowhere other than that title she won in the 90’s in which she act like someone giving her the title Miss America is a bad thing it’s actually a title that the well accomplished Vanessa Williams hold but you don’t hear her talking about it only when others mention it, that’s all Kenya has to offer and she is so jealous of Cynthia and Porsha because they have want she don’t have husbands, just like she said that she had been proposed to 6 times, that sounds like Cynthia’s story to be honest.

Cynthia and Porsha both are obviously prettier,classey, and have beautiful skin, naturally shaped and not butt implants, and Kenya that is not all of your hair we all know that you have infusion extensions which if you were to root her it would feel natural , you also need to press or relax you hair it always look course and dirty. I think to say Porsha is living off her Grandfathers legacy is not a bad thing she should not be condemned for her heritage , look at Janet Jackson if it were not for her brothers whom give all their siblings a platform and relevance the world would not known they either. Kenya it’s too bad you had a hard life so stop hating on others. I believe Walter she need some serious intense therapy. I’m so team Cynthia and Porsha

I normally enjoy watching the exchanges between RHOA lladies but this Kenya person is out of control. She was rude to everyone at the modeling auditions including Cynthia and she is acting like a cat in heat around some of the husbands. I guess the Miss America, oh pardon me, Miss USA pageant should screen their contestants better. What a sad embassador she is for them. I bet they are glad everyone thinks she was Miss America.

The only reality TV you can count on being “REALITY” TV is the NEWS.

With the exception of American Idol, the Voice, Survivor and the American Race…all of us American viewers should boycott all of this reality TV trash.

This all started with MTV’s the “Real World” series.
The cost to produce these shows is very low compared to a scripted TV comedy or drama so some of the networks are moving toward this CHEAP “pun intended” form of entertainment.

Why do people go on these “REALAFAKE” shows and actually ACT as if the “truth” will not come out? I mean really? It was so apparent the entire time by his reactions and how cool he was towards her that she was putting on and he was truly not feeling it. As well her REALITY “acting” is atrocious. It’s OBVIOUS that she’s putting on for the camera. She needs an acting coach for her “REAL” life drama because right now she’s as bad as Erica Cane was all those years on the soaps. SMH. Every single person on RHOA with the exception of Khandi has been outed as a fake since season one. Now how REAL is THAT?
