For those who follow “Real Housewives of Atlanta”, you would agree recent episode is very emotional for Kenya Moore as she decides to reach out to her mum again in front of the cameras. Many of you would attest to the fact that her continual trial to talk with her mum face to face in the past few year has not been fruitful.


She writes:

I couldn’t help to remember the countless times I’ve tried knocking on her door both literally and figuratively. The many times that little girl begged to be my mother’s friend or even just acknowledge that I was even alive. I begged that she would stop treating me as if I was invisible. Every attempt ended in her laughing in my face or cruelties to try to break my young spirit. This had nothing to do with cameras; I approached her without cameras my entire life. I also asked the cameras to stay behind. This was really my only moment that I felt was different, because this time I had the support of my father that has known my pain all too well.

When I reached her door and knocked I literally heard her voice, the same voice that called me on the phone when I was 4-years-old and told me never to call her my mother. I heard my mother say, “Don’t open that door.” Seconds later, I heard her lock the door in my face.

I was devastated, but I cannot say I was surprised. This is the inhumanity I’ve always known.
