There’s no question that Kenya Moore is able to attract any man she sets her sights on.

What may surprise people is that the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star carries a very personal scar that prevents her from maintaining a quality relationship with men. references an entry on Moore’s Bravo blog, where she confessed to suffering “a great deal of pain” because of her mother, Patricia Moore. After she was born, Kenya was sent to live with her paternal grandmother. Pregnant with Kenya at 16-years-old, the reality TV show star revealed that her mother never named her.

As a result, the relationship between mother and daughter hardly existed.

“Since birth, my mother made the decision at age 16 to pretend she never had me. She has never spoken to me,” Kenya wrote. “Even if present in the same room with other people and family, she pretends that I simply don’t exist. She pretends I’m invisible.”

The distant relationship with her mother ultimately carried over into Kenya’s interaction with those she had romantic relationships, despite having no problems with establishing and maintaining a quality relationship.

“I fully understand that there has been a void in my life because of this, which relates to my romantic relationships,” the former Miss USA expressed. “I have never had any issues with falling in love, dating, sustaining long-term relationships, or attracting great men in my life, who have loved me unconditionally. Although I have had now seven proposals of marriage, I have never accepted one.”

With her never walking down the aisle, Kenya is doubtful about finding a true love to do so. So much so that she feels she will never find love. In her eyes, Kenya believes she “unconsciously seeks rejection” by dating “unavailable men.”

“I acknowledge I have a pattern of falling for men who are emotionally unavailable, physically unavailable in terms of distance, or categorically unavailable with respect to time or where they are in life,” revealed the reality TV starlet, who ended her

on-screen relationship with Walter Jackson during RHOA’s last season when he didn’t propose.

Kenya’s relationship issues recently came into play when she was caught sending alleged “flirty texts” to Phaedra Parks ‘ husband Apollo Nida. According to the former beauty queen, the incident plays into a pattern that centers around men who are unattainable.

“Perhaps my pattern is that I unconsciously seek rejection or failure with these men, which sadly mimics my mother’s relationship, Kenya stated while she keeping her head up for a bright future. “… With that said, I will continue to work on myself so that I can be the best woman, friend, companion, and mother to my future children.”

    I commend Kenya for having the awareness to know and the courage to publicly acknowledge that she has deep-rooted psychological issues. Smart woman! I just hope she gets the help she needs ASAP.

  2. Kenya needs to seek professional help, so she can let go of her mother abandoning her. There is definitely something wrong with the mother to not acknowledge Kenya when they are in the same room. Is it possible that Kenya was conceived from a terrible, terrible relationship? Kenya and her biological mother very much are in need of therapy.

    She can attract any man she wants to? Really? If that were the case she would be married with children now. No man wants this crazy, lying, delusional woman. She keeps having to make up pretend boyfriends to save face over the fact, she is single.

  4. I empathize with Kenya’s plight; however, her personality, as portrayed on the RHOA, makes it hard for me to sympathize with her. I think she really needs professional help. I think she has suffered mentally, from her mother’s rejection, and the pain, which she still carries to this day, is projected onto others; thus causing her to come accross as an arrogant bully. She will never develop close relationships, with other people, until she heals the wounded little girl inside her. That “Look at me, look at me, mommy!” is still present today; that is why she behaves the way that she does. Her behavior gets her noticed and you can’t help but focus on her; something she didn’t get as a child. Sad. So sad. Get therapy, Kenya; it works.

  5. Kenya Moore is crazy. She needs mental help. I can understand she may have issues with her mother. But she is a fully grown woman and by now should realize her mother’s problems are her mother’s problems. It is up to her to be happy and content with her life. It is her life to make it what she wants. Sometimes, you have to let people and situations go. Even if they involve a parent. If she knows she has a particular pattern when it comes to men, work to change it.
