“Real Housewives of Atlanta’s” Kenya Moore takes serious umbrage at fellow cast member Phaedra Parks for sticking up for the outlandish, violent behavior of Glen Rice Jr. by using the #BlackLivesMatter card.
Rice Jr., the son of former NBA All-Star and Michigan national champion Glen Rice, was brought into the vacation situation in Miami by his aunt Tammy McCall. When he started acting erractically towards Moore and Kandi Burruss, he was asked to leave by Moore.
He then cursed out Kenya Moore and pushed his aunt Tammy to the ground, knocking her out cold.
Kenya is defending herself after being blamed for Glen’s behavior and is blasting Phaedra Parks for trying to spin the situation into a #BlackLivesMatter moment.
According to Bravo TV:
WHY I WANTED GLEN TO LEAVE
Glen made me and Kandi uncomfortable on several occasions. He came in with a chip on his shoulder, calling us “b**** and hos.” This was difficult to witness. I clearly saw a pattern of disrespectful behavior. We were all drinking and having fun on the boat, but his first response to me snapping my fingers at him was aggressive and uncalled for. I laughed it off, but I noted it. He was then aggressive with Kandi, who is obviously pregnant. He threatened to show out “any b**** or hos try him or disrespect him,” and when politely asked to leave by Tammy, he charged at me calling me a “little b***” and pushed his own Aunt down to the ground.
PHAEDRA VS. MIKE BROWN AND FERGUSON
I’m astounded by Phaedra’s blatant attempt manipulate the fans and incite anger against me. She stated that my reaction to Glen was the same as that of a “white women in suburbia” to an innocent Black boy walking down the street.
This had nothing to do with a “white women in suburbia” as Phaedra stated. Some men, like Glen, behave in a way that is unacceptable in society. We can feel a need to protect our men from unwarranted police brutality as in the Black Lives Matter campaign, but this is clearly not the same.
She also called out Kim Fields for also accusing her of provoking Glen by “hitting a hornet’s nest”…
Further, if a man is acting in a threatening and aggressive manner thereby making women feel uncomfortable, we cannot ask them to leave? According to Kim Fields if we do, we are “hitting a hornet’s nest” and “provoking” a man. Shame on them! I do not have to accept a man’s abuse — physical or verbal, black or white. Glen was abusive, period. I deserve to feel safe in my environment. I deserve protection. I deserve respect. This incident is not about a racial divide. I am a woman first.
These women are so resentful of my presence that they will always choose the side that is against me. Would any of these hypocritical mothers allow their sons to talk to women that way? Would that be acceptable to them for their sons to act the way Glen did? We saw Phaedra threaten to call the police on Apollo, but according to them I was wrong to ask Glen to leave.
and added that Phaedra in particular has been especially disrespectful to her this season.
Regarding Phaedra, she has made it her mission on every episode thus far to call me a villain; making fun of my former skin condition, my dark brown skin tone, and now my preemptive actions made to protect not only her, but all of the women present. It’s evident that Kim Fields, Phaedra, Sheree, and Porsha were all wrong about Glen. Yet, they were all ready to nail me to a stake until Kandi stated she agreed with me. Funny how that works isn’t it?
