Kenya Moore is reacting to the premiere episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta in a new interview with Bravo. Moore responds to Sheree Whitfield’s shade about her new home and says that Whitfield seemed bitter and embarrassed.
Bravotv.com: What’s your favorite part of Moore Manor?
Kenya Moore: My favorite part of Moore Manor is that it feels like my home — my style, my taste, and my overall design aesthetic. I sold my contemporary home in California I owned for approximately 16 years and rented the first 3 years when I moved to Atlanta. Living in them felt foreign. Your house should be your signature style, and now that it is, I couldn’t be happier.
Bravotv.com: Were you surprised that Sheree was throwing shade at Moore Manor?
KM: That would be a resounding NO. Quite frankly, Sheree seems bitter and embarrassed that I purchased a home and nearly built it from the ground up in less than a year, while she still has not completed her home in 5 years as of last week. After all, I had no plumbing, air, heat, electrical, flooring… I didn’t even have a front door. Yet I managed to complete my home and move in before the second coming of Christ.
I acknowledge I had an extensive “punch out list” prior to my housewarming to complete. With that said, I set a date and was determined not to cancel or change it. I did, however, explain to my select guests that I wasn’t completely finished. I asked for positive energy and for the closest people to me to bless my home and applaud my accomplishment. I thought Sheree would be happy to see how far I’ve come, but all she was capable of doing was tearing it down.
I am a woman who is completely self-made. I’ve worked for everything I have. I didn’t need nor have a man buy my home, and I am a businesswoman first. I bought a home well under my means — the worst property in the neighborhood — and partially built it with my own two hands. As such, I now have nearly 200% equity. I hope to inspire other women to be independent. No matter how small or big a dream one may have, you can do anything you set your mind to do.
Bravotv.com: What went through your mind when you saw Porsha at your housewarming?
KM: Porsha must have taken a wrong turn to get to the underground railroad.
