ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Kenya Moore’s alleged fake boyfriend scandal with Walter Jackson is leaving her future on Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta uncertain. Walter Jackson was allegedly never Kenya Moore’s boyfriend during filming of RHOA. Walter claims that the two last dated several years ago. Moreover, he claims that he was dating someone else, much younger than Moore, when Kenya was asking for an engagement ring.
Even more damaging, Walter claims that Moore called him up prior to production and allegedly told him that the Real Housewives chain is fake and just a bunch of women acting. Moore who isn’t married and allegedly doesn’t own a house in Atlanta, but does love to act, is now being accused by Walter of being Bravo’s fake single renter of Atlanta.
Bravo has yet to comment about the Kenya – Walter scandal. As Housewives fans know, this scandal bares a similarity to the Karent Sierra accusations this season on Real Housewives of Miami. There some cast members claimed Karent faked a relationship with a Mexican soap star for the cameras. But Karent clearly appeared on camera in love with Rodolfo and torn about his cheating allegations.
But for Walter Jackson, it wasn’t cheating. Jackson has a girlfriend, and it’s not Kenya Moore. Scandal pictures surfaced online this season of Kenya’s “boyfriend” Walter kissing other women around Atlanta this season. And then suddenly, Walter dropped a bombshell.
It remains unclear what prompted Walter to allegedly expose Kenya’s fake relationship. But Walter tells news that “someone” was creating false rumors that he is gay. “I’m well established here. Gay has never been in the block. Why she would say that, I don’t know.”
Bravo has a long history of not inviting back women who are accused of faking “storylines” on their reality shows. The network also has a long history of not inviting back cast members who are perceived as giving a fake portrayal for ratings.
So what is Kenya’s response? Kenya doesn’t give a clear answer about much of anything. “Walter’s recent statements are completely false. I am embarrassed that I allowed a deceitful and hateful person in my life. He says he did it for fame. I’ve been humiliated enough by appearing desperate for a man to marry me who has his own agenda. I urge viewers to stay tuned. The truth will come to light. I have heard the fans and my friends loud and clear. I can do better than Walter and I will”. So did she tell Walter to act, did tell him to allegedly fake it for Bravo? Moore is not explaining. Of note, she is under a Bravo contract presumably preventing the same alleged fake conduct that Walter is now claiming she did.
During a recent news interview with the Frank Ski and Wanda Smith show, Walter said that Moore allegedly remarked that RHOA is fake and only acting. “What if you play my boyfriend on the show?” Walter clams she said. “It’s just like acting”. Kenya has also battled allegations this week that the her home and car on RHOA are both rented.
