From Beauty Pageants to Butt Pads: Kenya Moore mocks Phaedra in #RHOA butt-pad debacle

From Beauty Pageants to Butt Pads: Kenya Moore mocks Phaedra in #RHOA butt-pad debacle

Phaedra Parks, whether you like her over-the-top Southern Belle alter ego or not, may be onto something.

Kenya Moore just may be a bit bi-polar. Hate to say it but it takes a person with some true mental deficiencies tKenya Mooreo make the not-so-sound decision to put on a bathing suit with a see-through fish-net overlay with bright butt pads stuck on her buttocks and a flying saucer-size church hat, to walk into a real charity event with the hopes to embarrass and confront someone she says was talking smack behind her back.

Say what?

Okay, lemme run this down. On last night’s episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, former Miss America USA Kenya Moore made a shocking entrance at NeNe’s Shoe Dazzle event by walking in beach-ready with butt-pads.

Kenya claimed that she heard that attorney and self-professed Southern Belle Phaedra parks had been talking about her behind her back. (And yes, Phaedra was.) Phaedra told her RHOA click that she thought Kenya was an alcoholic and probably bi-polar because of Kenya’s on-going erratic antics.

But really Phaedra’s Southern waters might be a bit salty because Kenya stole borrowed Phaedra’s Donkey Booty video idea by saying that she would create and produce a “Stallion” Booty video because Phaedra refused to let Kenya profit from the production. (Tsk, tsk Phaedra) So from there, the two have not seen eye to eye on anything. Phaedra feels like Kenya is a thief. Kenya feels like Phaedra is a fake and a fraud.

Okay, so we got that out of the way. Now let’s deal with Kenya’s over-the-top Butt-pad debacle.

Kenya, honey chile… Really? As Wendy Williams said, Kenya confirmed what we already knew. #Cuckoo

You’re telling me you would put your historic legacy as Miss USA in the trash for this outrageous TV moment? You’d rather be remembered for BOOTY PADS than a Top Beauty Pageant that has only ever crowned six women of color out of 60?Nobody will remember you for earning a crown as Miss USA. But your booty-pad debut will go down in crazy-black-woman-best-TV-moments for sure. And after all that back and forth with Phaedra over the Donkey Booty video, it’s funny Kenya that YOU are actually the one who looks like the ass.

butt pads

Buffoonery at its best.

I know Kenya says she is not Miss Congeniality and no one expects anyone to hold it together all the time and yes women do fight, but there’s a way to go about it and a way to handle yourself to uphold your dignity.

I wonder if Harriet Tubman ever stripped naked, put on her best bathing suit bloomers and grabbed a whip to confront her massa and his wife and mock them by swinging the whip around and hitting slaves to prove to them that she was mad about their cruel treatment of her and the N-word name-calling in her face and behind her back! Or did she carefully, intelligently and thoughtfully outwit them by leading the charge to distant herself from their cruel and demeaning ways? She didn’t stoop to their level. She just stepped out. She proved to them that they were wrong about her. But the ironic thing about Kenya is that she proved to us all that Phaedra was right.

All of social media is popping and talking about what Kenya did– and NOT in a good way. This by far trumps Sheree’s “Who Gon’ Check me Boo?” verbal beatdown and Kim and NeNe’s “You’re an 11-alive intern” almost bus brawl.

 Kenya have a seat in a chair as cushiony as your butt-pads. Have a drink (or two) call your therapist, cut your ties with Walter and THINK about what you want your legacy to be. Stop trying to put people down. Yes you have a nice body. We give you that. But you don’t make yourself look good by putting someone else down. Actually you look like an idiot with an ax to grind. Nothing more.

Coretta Scott King, Sojourner Truth and Harriet Tubman would be so proud of you Kenya. NOT!!! They got spit on, beat down, and talked about bad. But those heroic women and many more are remembered for holding their heads high and fighting back with their brains and not their booty. Take a note. Pick up a history book and fight your battles a lot better Kenya!

Hey Kenya here’s a gift from my friend Karla Trotman. BYE!


Just in case you forgot, peep just a FEW of some outstanding women who didn’t drop their drawers for an outrageous TV moment:

    Ha ha ha, yes this is so true!!! Kenya made a straight fool of herself and I agree, she may be a bit bipolar. Remember in Anguilla when Walter asked her if she took her “medicine?” Anyhoo, great post girl, and I plan on tweeting and sharing!!! 🙂

    LOL! Thanks for commenting Des! Yes he certainly let the cat out the bag!! Thanks!

    So funny that you posted that t-shirt. I laugh because its not THAT bad of an insult. We all have had our moments of ashiness. Its more embarrassing than anything. Definitely a colloquialism within the African American community. LOL

    Your post definitely summed up mostly everything that I had swimming in my head. While I love watching the show, I honestly was championing Kenya in the beginning. She is a stunning woman who could have used RHOA as a stepping stone, just as NeNe has done. While her antics are great television, I can’t help but think of how she will always be remembered. The image of those butt pads will forever be burned into my mind’s eye.

    I hope that she will see her actions throughout the season, seek therapy (totally serious, not in a snarky way), and drop the workout video aspirations. In season 2, I hope that she does something that will really generate an income for her…like a haircare line. THAT I would buy.

    Well said Karla! Guess what Karla, would you believe that Kenya wrote that she was HURT by the Ashy comment! Then she posted a picture of her feet! SMH! But yes I hope in Season two she comes around. But I think next week she might get some sympathy from America because of a cancer scare. I wish her the best and hope she does clean up her image and do better.

    Amen. Kenya Moore is a psycho mess, and clearly has psychological issues… and zero class. She keeps claiming to be a “role model”….. for what? She claims winning miss USA was groundbreaking for … ALL women! Really? Are you forgetting about all the other Miss USA winners and most importantly, the gorgeous and classy Vanessa Williams? I would really like to see Kenya Moore taken off of the show because she is a joke. Also, with her “ex-boyfriend” claiming Kenya asked him to pretend to be her BF for the show… that is reason enough to fire her. Though Phaedra stretches the truth by claiming she and her husband workout together, and is deluded into thinking she is in shape (very thick thighs that rub together), she is still more entertaining than that ashy bi-polar mess Kenya! FIRE KENYA!

    I think they should remove her from the show too. Maybe Bravo will take heed. TOTALLY agree with you! Thanks for commenting!
