UPDATE: Kenya has taken to her Instagram to post the following picture of herself holding the much talked about check for $20,000!
Kenya also shared the following caption with the photo:
“I’m proud to be able to give back and keep my promise to the Detroit public schools foundation to donate $20,000. Detroit is a resilient city and so am I. I will continue to shine despite the people who want to see me fail or try to turn my positivity in to negativity. See you soon Detroit! #igotyomoney #kenyalovesthekids #twirlsawayhaters”
As for Nene’s part, TMZ.com reports they reached out to Mrs. Leakes to see if she would now keep up her end of the deal and match the donation, but so far there has been no word back! Very interesting…but it is great Kenya confirmed that she is still donating the money! After all, this is about charity.
Do you think Nene will now match Kenya’s donation?
Earlier this week, I reported that Kenya Moore would finally be making good on her season six reunion deal with Nene Leakes by making an appearance at her alma mater to present $20,000 to the Detroit Public Schools Foundation. Now, however, that appearance (scheduled for October 17th) has been postponed! And apparently, this is not the first time.
According to the Detroit Free Press:
Kenya Moore, a cast member of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” won’t be able to attend an assembly planned in her honor Friday at Cass Technical High School because of a scheduling conflict involving her family. She still plans to donate $20,000 to the Detroit Public Schools Foundation, said Shannon Barr, vice president of a public relations firm that works with Moore.
Pretty surprising, no? Honestly, it is rather odd that it has taken this long for the donation and appearance to come to fruition. I understand wanting to film this scene for the show, but season seven of RHOA has been filming for months! Surely the students and faculty were looking forward to this event, and it is unfortunate they are going to be let down.
Hopefully Miss Twirl can make it up to them…perhaps a live performance of Gone With the Wind Fabulous? Maybe it could inspire self confidence amongst the student body…right? Silver linings!
What are your thoughts? Are you surprised Kenya postponed the appearance?
