After much speculation on what happened with Real Housewives of Atlanta Star Kenya Moore’s relationship with Walter Jackson, Kenya is finally speaking out and telling viewer that SHE is the one that broke up with Walter. You might remember Walter’s now infamous radio interview where he claimed that Kenya asked him to “play” her boyfriend for the Bravo cameras. Click here in case you missed that. Kenya is taking to her Bravo Blog to tell her side of the story, and also spills details in a new interview with OK! Magazine!
Kenya writes, “I’ve always been the noncommittal person in a relationship. I was so eager to break that spell that I was willing to settle for someone who has since proven to be not good enough for me. The mark of a real man is honesty, courage, and strength.
Walter said he loves me and he wouldn’t be there if he didn’t. Yet his body language, his nonchalant and often cold tone, and his lack of affection toward me said loud and clear: I DON’T WANT TO MARRY YOU. So why lead me on? Why waste my time? Why humiliate me in front of the world? I was so focused on making the relationship work that I lost the one important counsel that I always give to other women: Look to a man’s actions and not his words. I am embarrassed but I hope that all women can learn from the mistakes I’ve made in love.
I appreciate all of you who have taken the time to encourage me to move on and find genuine love. I’m actually excited to be single again, because I’d rather be alone than be with someone who treats me poorly. I just need to make better choices with whom I allow in my life. Even though the relationship didn’t work out, it was a blessing in disguise. God has a better plan for me, one that I could never have seen for myself. I have faith and trust in Him that the right man will find me.
I thank you all for your kind words and gentle encouragement to move on and past this relationship misstep. You have shown me kindness by not laughing at my pain, and I truly appreciate you all.
Please don’t feel sorry for me, because I am resilient and I am not easily broken. I will move on and love like I’ve never been hurt before and dance like no one is watching! Why? Because I’m still and will always be Gone With the Wind Fabulous!”
In an interview with OK! Magazine, Kenya reveals more details in what happened with her relationship with Walter, how it ended, and says she’s glad she finally dumped him!
You and Walter have split up – how do you feel now the relationship is over?
I feel relieved. No one should settle for a relationship for the sake of being in one. Once I move to Atlanta the relationship was flushed out. I saw Walter for who he really is and his intentions were false. I’m glad it’s over.
What is the status of your relationship with him now – are you in contact?
No, we are not in contact. He was not a good person to me.
You were emotional talking to your aunt about the whole situation – do you feel very let down by Walter?
Relationships don’t work out all the time. But I felt deceived because he was not truthful with me.
Walter had a bad attitude during your fishing trip – was that the final straw for you?
By that time, I had already made up my mind that the relationship was over. The fishing trip was final closure for me.
Do you feel you wasted your time with Walter and should have terminated the relationship a long time before you actually did?
I can only blame myself because I saw the red flags with Walter and ignored them. I have been proposed to 6 times prior to Walter and never accepted because I wasn’t ready. Now that I am, I wanted to make sure it wasn’t me running away like I’ve done in the past.
