The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kenya Moore took to her blog to defend herself against co-star Phaedra Parks's accusations in last night's episode that she is bipolar and drinks too much, both of which Kenya says are "unfounded and untrue."
Undoubtedly with malice, Phaedra repeatedly and intentionally slanders and defames me with unfounded and untrue statements. All as punitive action when she learned of my intentions to make my own fitness video.
With regards to Phaedra's accusations that she drinks too much, Kenya wrote:
I have never been drunk a day in my life. Yet Phaedra wants everyone to believe I “drink like a fish.”
With regards to Phaedra's implication that she is bipolar, Kenya wrote:
Being bipolar is a lifelong disorder marked by great suffering from extensive depressive states that often are accompanied by suicidal thoughts most often successively followed by manic states presenting over two weeks or more. These symptoms are crippling and render the patient often unproductive or functional in daily life. I am none of the above.
People have real and actual mental health issues, and I have seen the possibility of this from my own mother. I feel Phaedra’s atrocious mischaracterizations were especially cruel considering she was the only woman on the show I confided in regarding my lifelong struggles with my family regarding this.
With regards to Phaedra's character as a whole, Kenya wrote:
She is a malicious, despicable human being, who intentionally sought to malign my reputation and harm my future business with her debasing lies.
I believe I have seen Phaedra’s cold black heart. From her actions alone, this is a woman who will say anything and tell any lie in order to achieve a favorable outcome for herself.
