Kenya Moore’s season 9 storyline is already played out, and the season isn’t even close to over. She’s currently battling her abusive ex-boyfriend Matt Jordan in the media, and we’ve been watching the demise of their relationship on RHOA!
This week she got her father involved, and the sit-down with Matt didn’t go over as well as expected; he seems to be uninterested and unapologetic!
Kenya dished on Bravo on the situation and of course defended her dad! While Kenya’s been open in the past about her lonely, abandoned childhood, she couldn’t be happier to be close to her father currently.
“My dad was only 15 when I was born. He wasn’t in a position to take care of me when my mother wanted to give me up for adoption. Through the years we have struggled as I never understood why we were always at odds or not speaking at all…sometimes for years at a time. Over the last few years I made a concerted effort to repair my relationship with my family. My Dad and I had a heart to heart and for the first time I finally understood his pain. Our relationship has never been better,” Kenya explained.
Kenya is grateful for her father’s support in this scary situation, and revealed that all he wants for Kenya is happiness. “He has known of my previous relationships and marriage proposals, and we have spoken about my exes on the show before. But he had never met Matt. Unfortunately, I wish it was under better circumstances. He has been happily married for over 35 years and is still very much in love with his wife. He is a great source of information and support. At the end of the day, all my dad wants is for me to be happy,” she confirmed. (I love how she said ‘relationships and marriage proposals.’)
Then Kenya stated she is supporting her dad in his “confrontation” with Matt. She was impressed by his “respectful” behavior, and repulsed by Matt’s disregard for manners and self-control.
“I thought my dad was very respectful and fair with Matt. Although Matt can calmly express himself with others, he cannot control his anger or his emotions when he gets hurt or upset when speaking to me. He constantly keeps score, holds on to things that happened in the beginning of our relationship, and behaves in a tit for tat manner. Age is not a factor, but maturity is. He states he wants my respect, but he breaks down doors in hotels and breaks windows in the home I have put my heart, soul, and hard earned money into. As such, nothing warrants this type of violence,” she spilled.
Continuing, “With that said, I have appreciated the fans and their support, criticism, and prayers for me and Matt. There were so many people rooting for us, because they saw genuine love between us. Our flaws, struggles, and feelings are broadcast to the world, and it’s not always pretty. People can lie, but your eyes do not. Thank you for seeing the truth and speaking on it. This is not the easiest time for me with the holidays upon us, but I wish you all Happy Holidays and thank you for your love,” Kenya wrapped.
I feel that this storyline is bringing down Kenya and the show; Matt accused her of making up this situation for the sake of RHOA. Matt looks like a creep and acts like a criminal. Move on Kenya, even you are too good for this nonsense.
