Watch What Happens Live – Season 12
Kenya Moore faced yet another love failure in May 2016 when The Real Housewives of Atlanta star admitted that she had hit a bit of a relationship snag with her boyfriend, Matt Jordan. Her comments on their troubles came amid reports the two had been involved in a heated fight during their Mexico getaway over Memorial Day Weekend 2016. But Moore and Jordan’s heart-quake wasn’t the first time the beauty has dealt with a messy love letdown. And from her engagement scandal with James Freeman to her boyfriend disses during RHOA’s Season 8, we’ve gathered all of Moore’s biggest relationship fakery scandals!
During RHOA’s Season 5, Moore faced talk she was faking her relationship with her man Walter Jackson. And in an interview with The Daily Mail, Jackson claimed that he was paid to be Moore’s boyfriend on the reality hit! Jackson did admit that the two did date years before she joined RHOA. But according to him, once she was cast for the show, Moore reached out to him about playing her boyfriend on RHOA!
“She asked me if I would be on the show and pretend to be her boyfriend. I thought about it for a bit and then decided that I might as well have my 15 minutes of fame,” he said. “Kenya told everyone she had moved to Atlanta to be with me. It was nothing to do with me really, she moved to Atlanta to be on the show and relaunch her career.”
He went on to add some behind-the-scenes details of his time on the show, saying that the schedule was stressful and Moore often caught him off guard with her antics during tapings. “But in another way it was difficult because Kenya would throw in stuff I wasn’t expecting and I didn’t know how to react. She’d start asking me ‘when are we going to get married?’ and I would be like ‘wow, I didn’t know that was coming!'” he added.
And Moore’s love issues came back around in May 2015 when she revealed on Instagram that her The Millionaire Matchmaker date Freeman had gotten married without her knowing. She posted the message just weeks after hinting on IG that she was possibly engaged to Freeman.
The drama increased even more when Freeman’s wife went on to call out Moore over the IG post, accusing her of using her few dates with Freeman as part of a “publicity stunt!” Freeman’s wife also claimed that Moore hadn’t spoken with her husband for months ahead of her post about his wedding.
Heading into RHOA’s Season 8, Moore once again faced relationship fakery chatter over her rumored boyfriend Eugene Casciaro. NeNe Leakes appeared to take a dig at Moore in a Tweet, with the post seemingly calling out Moore for casting a new man for the show’s eighth season. And only weeks after Leakes' shady tweet, Casciaro and Moore made their debut at the launch party for Moore’s new haircare line!
But just as quick as Casciaro made his debut, he was replaced by Moore’s next fella Jordan. Jordan appeared on several episodes of RHOA’s Season 8. And the two were even the focus of pregnancy rumors after Moore revealed her plans to begin IVF procedures in December 2015.
Their romance blossomed throughout the spring of 2016. However, by May, the wheels looked to fall off of their relationship once it was reported that the two got into a dramatic fight during their Mexico vacation. Jordan eventually took to his Twitter to announce the duo’s breakup and explain his side of the situation. And Moore followed his post with a post of her own, asking that the two be given privacy as they worked through their issues.
But despite their months of public outings, dates and even their appearance on RHOA’s Season 8 reunion show together, many questioned if Moore and Jordan’s spat was possibly another stunt created by Moore to seal her slot on RHOA’s upcoming Season 9!
