So much for dating an African prince. Kenya Moore is turning to Patti Stanger of The Millionaire Matchmaker to find love. And of course, the 43-year-old Moore has brought along her new bestie, second half of their so-dubbed dynamic duo, Cynthia Bailey, to the session with Stanger.
The newly-released clip from Bravo, as reported by E!, shows Kenya sitting down prior to the interview, adding lipstick and primping in the behind-the-scenes footage that The Millionaire Matchmaker often shows of their interviewees. Once Moore begins to speak, she talks about Cynthia — one of her cast mates on the uber-popular Real Housewives of Atlanta — bringing her to the show to find love. That’s when Bailey interjects, sitting off a few feet away, saying that she didn’t twist Kenya’s arm and drag her on a plane to fly to Los Angeles, but that Moore was pretty open to the idea of getting a mate for life.
The episode of The Millionaire Matchmaker that features the controversial twirl queen, part of “the talls” cliqué on RHOA, airs Sunday. It will show Moore stating that she’s tired of all the dating she’s done over the past 20 years, with Kenya claiming that she’s truly ready to find a man for keeps. She also tries to dispel myths swirling around about her being a gold-digger (Patti calls Moore a “goal-digger” instead), or rumors about Kenya being a difficult-to-handle diva.
“I’m feeling very nervous about finding a mate. I’m not the diva that men think that I am.”
Cynthia and Kenya giggle like schoolgirls when they ask the producers of The Millionaire Matchmaker if they can curse, because Bailey told viewers that Moore is a deeper person than what’s portrayed on TV.
“There’s layers to this s***!”
The friendship between Bailey and Moore blossomed after Cynthia’s close friendship with NeNe fell apart. During the most recent episode of RHOA, NeNe was resolutely clowned for having a weird hairstyle and for walking out of a therapy session with the women that Leakes herself organized, as reported by the Inquisitr.
About that controversial session and gathering, Kenya said she could feel NeNe’s negative spirit, as reported in a blog post on the Bravo website. In the Millionaire Matchmaker episode, Kenya will select men via a fashion show, which is apropos, given Bailey’s accomplishments in the world of modeling, and Moore’s successful pageant background.
