#RHOA Star Kenya Moore Discuss Relationships: She’s Open to Interracial Dating

Posted on Jun 2 2015 - 12:26pm by Norrth Cafe


Kenya Moore has been lucky at life, but unlucky at love. Even still, the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” diva has vowed to keep her belief in true love, alive. Hello Beautiful scored an interview with Moore. Kenya opens up about interracial dating, age, and unconventional (online) dating.

When asked about the best thing about dating outside of race, Moore responded:

“For Black women, we just have to be open because there’s not a lot of eligible bachelors, that are Black, for us to choose from anymore. If you take away the ones that are gay, in jail, this is a real issue. Statistics show why we don’t have the choices. You take the ones that are gay, in jail, don’t have a job, the ones that are already married and the ones that are dating and marrying outside our race, what do you have left? You don’t have much to choose from. The nicest thing is that you have options.”

On her feelings about age, she believes that:

“…you know who you are at 40. Women over 40 are the baddest women on the planet. Really, we are. You own who you are, you have so much confidence. You’re in a place where you have a career, you have a place, you have money, at this point you should be successful. You’ve learned patience.”

When asked if she prefers traditional dating to match-making services, Moore comments on the transition from the once taboo online dating, to realizing the role technology can play in making it easier to meet others. The RHOA star describes the internet and matchmaking services as making dating “efficient” and find them as acceptable as having meeting others through friends.

About the Author

I’m an exasperated soap fan who keeps hanging on – waiting for the daytime I once loved to return to its former glory! Hey, it doesn’t hurt to have a dream. I learned to love soaps thanks to my wonderful mother and grandmother. I’ll always have fond memories of daytime, most especially of ‘Another World’, my first stoap love. The ever great, but sadly defunct, daytime shows like Ryan’s Hope, Search for Tomorrow, The Doctors, Loving, and many others keep a special place in my heart, as well. ♦ Norrth Cafe's BlogTwitterFacebook

    I don’t wanna hear a word out of her mouth without an update or full explanation of this guy she met who may or may not have gotten married

      LOL! You’re not over that by now DSS?

        Takes me awhile sometimes Mars 🙂

    I agree with Kenya about the lack of eligible, decent African-American men for African-American women to date. I wouldn’t be surprised if Kenya has actually dated outside of her race.

    What? Am I supposed to consider this a big revelation that she would stoop to date outside of her race? How completely ’80s of her.

      I don’t know if you’re being facetious, but you think Kenya dating outside of her race is “stooping”?

    Kenya would find a real man if she would just lighten up her diva…I imagine any man in her life right now is using her for 15 minutes…including Brandon, imo…

    Love should be colorblind.

  6. WaWaWaWHAT! June 2, 2015 at 1:23 pm -

    People should not look for love starting by the color of one’s skin…

    I am in an ‘interracial relationship’ [even though the ‘interracial part in irrelevant, imho] and we have been together for 12 years…he is my soul mate and the most trustworthy man I know…

    Black men, white men, yellow men…it doesn’t matter and for Kenya to speak on this shows me why she hasn’t had a real relationship in years…

      Thank you for sharing and enlightening us on real love and companionship.

      Absolutely! Well said.

    Kenya looks gorgeous in this pic. Yellow is definitely her color. Matters of the heart are tough and even tougher for a single woman. I wish Kenya would take a break first before jumping back into the pond. She needs to heal and do some self-reflecting.

    she is just too crazy and too overbearing to hold on to a decent man

    Great, we can expect a fake white boyfriend next season.

    That was such a good interview, thank you for blogging it. BET, sister 2sister, and Vibe magazine just wanted to sensationalize it.I don’t have the energy to fight right now..

    Nicely written Norrth Cafe unlike so many other blogs that twisted Kenya’s words to make her look bias against black men.
