As the new season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta has just kicked off three weeks ago, the drama and tea is definitely on overload! One thing is for sure in their last episode, you can only live to love or hate Kenya Moore.
If you tuned in last Sunday, you would have watched former NBA player, Glen Rice Jr. get invited into the women’s Miami vacation home by their aunt, Tammy McCall Browning but it was evident early on that Glen wasn’t here for Kenya! He ends up cursing her out from head to toe. If you guessed that Kenya wanted to kick him out after that, you’re right but he definitely didn’t leave without a fight or should we say before knocking poor auntie Tammy out cold!
While Kenya says she had a just reason for kicking Glen out, some of the cast members feel a bit differently. Phaedra and Kim Fields in particular feel as though, Kenya provoked the situation. Well according to Bravo TV, Kenya has something to say for the ladies who are speaking against her:
WHY I WANTED GLEN TO LEAVE
Glen made me and Kandi uncomfortable on several occasions. He came in with a chip on his shoulder, calling us “b**** and hos.” This was difficult to witness. I clearly saw a pattern of disrespectful behavior. We were all drinking and having fun on the boat, but his first response to me snapping my fingers at him was aggressive and uncalled for. I laughed it off, but I noted it. He was then aggressive with Kandi, who is obviously pregnant. He threatened to show out “any b**** or hos try him or disrespect him,” and when politely asked to leave by Tammy, he charged at me calling me a “little b***” and pushed his own Aunt down to the ground.
PHAEDRA VS. MIKE BROWN AND FERGUSON
I’m astounded by Phaedra’s blatant attempt manipulate the fans and incite anger against me. She stated that my reaction to Glen was the same as that of a “white women in suburbia” to an innocent Black boy walking down the street.
This had nothing to do with a “white women in suburbia” as Phaedra stated. Some men, like Glen, behave in a way that is unacceptable in society. We can feel a need to protect our men from unwarranted police brutality as in the Black Lives Matter campaign, but this is clearly not the same.
Of course Kenya didn’t stop there. She then turned to give her read on Kim Fields for saying she had instigated the whole thing:
Further, if a man is acting in a threatening and aggressive manner thereby making women feel uncomfortable, we cannot ask them to leave? According to Kim Fields if we do, we are “hitting a hornet’s nest” and “provoking” a man. Shame on them! I do not have to accept a man’s abuse — physical or verbal, black or white. Glen was abusive, period. I deserve to feel safe in my environment. I deserve protection. I deserve respect. This incident is not about a racial divide. I am a woman first.
These women are so resentful of my presence that they will always choose the side that is against me. Would any of these hypocritical mothers allow their sons to talk to women that way? Would that be acceptable to them for their sons to act the way Glen did? We saw Phaedra threaten to call the police on Apollo, but according to them I was wrong to ask Glen to leave.
Regarding Phaedra, she has made it her mission on every episode thus far to call me a villain; making fun of my former skin condition, my dark brown skin tone, and now my preemptive actions made to protect not only her, but all of the women present. It’s evident that Kim Fields, Phaedra, Sheree, and Porsha were all wrong about Glen. Yet, they were all ready to nail me to a stake until Kandi stated she agreed with me. Funny how that works isn’t it?
Looks like the claws are really about to come out soon! Lets chat below, who is wrong who is right!?
