Doppelganger to the creoles, ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star, Kenya Moore writes on her Bravo blog that she overlooked warning signs from Walter Jackson signaling that their relationship wasn’t going in the right direction.
When you are done giving me the side-eye for just being the messenger, hit the jump.
GOOD RIDDANCE TO BAD RUBBISH
I’ve always been the noncommittal person in a relationship. I was so eager to break that spell that I was willing to settle for someone who has since proven to be not good enough for me. The mark of a real man is honesty, courage, and strength.
WHEN YOU CATCH A SMALL FISH THROW IT BACK IN THE WATER
Walter said he loves me and he wouldn’t be there if he didn’t. Yet his body language, his nonchalant and often cold tone, and his lack of affection toward me said loud and clear: I DON’T WANT TO MARRY YOU. So why lead me on? Why waste my time? Why humiliate me in front of the world? I was so focused on making the relationship work that I lost the one important counsel that I always give to other women: Look to a man’s actions and not his words. I am embarrassed but I hope that all women can learn from the mistakes I’ve made in love.
I appreciate all of you who have taken the time to encourage me to move on and find genuine love. I’m actually excited to be single again, because I’d rather be alone than be with someone who treats me poorly. I just need to make better choices with whom I allow in my life. Even though the relationship didn’t work out, it was a blessing in disguise. God has a better plan for me, one that I could never have seen for myself. I have faith and trust in Him that the right man will find me.
My sentiments exactly, Porsha. In a new interview with OK! Magazine, Kenya says that she “feels relieved” to have called it quits with Walter.
“No one should settle for a relationship for the sake of being in one. Once I move to Atlanta the relationship was flushed out,” Kenya explains. “I saw Walter for who he really is and his intentions were false. I’m glad it’s over. ”
She continued: “I can only blame myself because I saw the red flags with Walter and ignored them. I have been proposed to 6 times prior to Walter and never accepted because I wasn’t ready. Now that I am, I wanted to make sure it wasn’t me running away like I’ve done in the past.”
