By now you already know that Kenya Moore tied the knot without telling anyone about her plans to jump the broom.
We caught up with the Real Housewives of Atlanta star to get all the details about her big day and find out why she didn’t include her cast mates or her family in the festivities.
According to Kenya, her wedding was magical even if it was missing a few familiar faces.
“Oh my God. It was the most beautiful wedding. St. Lucia is the most beautiful place and it was absolutely stunning,” she says. “There were only 10 of us total and the hotel did everything. They had a package and I picked the cake and the food. We did everything on the beach so there wasn’t a lot of planning. My husband sat with the chefs and decided on the menu.”
Kenya revealed the real reason behind her difficult decision to keep her dad away from the ceremony.
“It was sad. I knew my dad wanted to be there and I tried to tell him. I just wanted my wedding day to be perfect and with my dad you never know what you’re going to get. I told him how in love I was with this man and he was not supportive,” she explains. “I had to make the decision and I went back and forth about, ‘do I have my dad there?’ I had to make the decision because I’m starting a new life and my family now is my husband. I went with the safer choice and I do regret it.”
As we’ll see on this season’s premiere of RHOA, the ladies found out about Kenya’s nuptials the same way we did—social media.
“I didn’t tell anyone. The only person who was happy for me was Cynthia. She wanted it to be true so badly when she heard,” she says. “I was surprised at them not saying anything at all. To me, silence speaks louder than anything else. They were not happy for me and that is a shame.”
She called out Phaedra Parks and Porsha Williams for their consistent critiques on her love life and their lack of support for her new relationship.
“Phaedra and Porsha were the main ones who were criticized and ridiculed me because I wasn’t married and you see where they are. None of them reached out to me. Not a one,“ she says. “They have been invested in a negative way so when it’s something positive for my love life, they’re not happy.”
