It has been an online battle between Kenya Moore and Phaedra Parks since their fitness business deal didn't go through as shown on the show. First, Kenya claimed that Phaedra wanted her to work for free. Then Phaedra claimed to be dishing out over $100,000 and told Kenya to take a business course. Now, according to her newest Bravo blog released on Jan. 17, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kenya Moore is fighting back and it sounds like she has a few things to say about this fitness deal that didn't work out.
“I was Phaedra's biggest fan and she was my confidant and my RHOA BFF. I truly thought the world of her, which makes this dispute over money more difficult to fathom,” Kenya explains. “In our first meeting Phaedra stated “money was no object.” Yet, this entire falling out is simply over Phaedra’s pure greed, over-inflated ego, and her desire to exploit our friendship. It appears that everybody knows that Phaedra is shady except for me...We all heard Phaedra tell Kandi that she works for free all the time suggesting I should too. This statement from the woman who told Sheree she doesn’t work for free and gave her money back and who allowed an athlete to out lawyer her in court.” Kenya's accusations do sound rather harsh, even if she did have something to back up her claims.
But when it all comes down to it, it sounds like “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kenya Moore really just wanted to help Phaedra and Apollo with their dream. “Let me do my job because I do it well. Phaedra, Apollo, and her attorney received an impressive package including a one sheet, budget, marketing materials, potential concepts and alternate taglines, projections and so forth. As a seasoned and successful film producer, I used my pre-existing relationships to vet a distribution deal for the video. I was not obligated to obtain a distribution deal. That is not what a production company does. We are ONLY paid to produce (make) a product (video) and walk away. However, because she was my valued and trusted friend, I wanted to help as much as I possibly could. I thought she would be elated, because distribution is THE most important factor,” Kenya added.
Do you think this deal ended their friendship?
