RHOA: You can just call her Ken… but you can just call it KARMA!

This season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, or RHOA, is in full swing. One of the storylines we knew was coming is Kenya and her ex-husband Marc Daly.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta are never at a loss for words. This goes for the entire cast as a group but goes double for each individual RHOA lady on their lonesomes.  While this has been the case for as long as I can remember, one of the usually more outspoken ladies has found herself taking sort of a backseat role as of late. Well, as of late as far as the timeline of the show at least, but this isn’t in reference to interactions with the rest of the ladies amongst the cast as much as indicative of the rest of her life.

Kenya Moore was noticeably absent from last season after getting married and giving birth to a beautiful baby girl by the name of Brooklyn. Upon her return to the cast this season, we asked whether it was the chicken or the egg, in that did she return because her marriage was falling apart or did it fall apart because she returned?

While that answer still hasn’t become totally clear yet, it does seem as though there was a fracture in their relationship prior to her return, while a lot of Moore’s supposed issues don’t have a ton to do with the production of the television show.

In any event, the most recent episode of RHOA saw the aftermath of what was the announcement made by Kenya that she and her then-husband, Marc Daly, were calling it quits. While Moore said that he “forced her hand” by making her get ahead of it and announce it before he had the chance to do so, there are other instances in the very same sequence or at least in this same episode at the absolute minimum, where she seems to insinuate that this was something she “had to do”.

While that isn’t the topic of today’s conversation, it is worth asking.

Did he force your hand or was this something she had to do for herself, because to be frank sister, they are two completely different notions.

What is important here today, however, is our take on how Kenya found herself here. While you may be looking for some drawn-out, piece by piece, itemized explanation, there isn’t one. The answer here is simply karma.

By definition and according to Webster’s Dictionary, “karma” is “the force generated by a person’s actions held in Hinduism and Buddhism to perpetuate transmigration and in its ethical consequences to determine the nature of the person’s next existence”. At its simplest, it means that whatever you put out in any perspective, that is the same of which you will receive back.

Kenya’s karma?

Kenya has never been anything other than a mean and devious person for the most part. Like everyone, she has her moments where she is loving, caring and even the sympathetic figure, but that is far and few in between.

For the most part, she is the one in the middle, causing, and/or stirring up the drama with another castmate. Look no further than her interaction with Tanya Sam about her fiance. We all should be aware of the infamous cookie lady incident at this point.

For a small refresher, Kenya practically facilitated, instigated, and further ignited a supposed situation with Sam’s fiance and this lady, who just so happens to sell cookies. Moore was so involved and caught up in that particular scenario that it has some wondering whether she was just projecting her own insecurities and fears onto others.

You can also look at the instance where she purposefully and actively “snubs” NeNe Leakes twice in the same latest episode, mere moments apart from each other. While she and Leakes have been at odds for a while now, this situation is different and she should have been more receptive initially. Yea, she tried to take a desert of peace to Leakes but as NeNe expressed at that time, it was too late.

While there is still quite a bit that we can unpack, which I will in the coming days, this is the initial and most important reaction from the latest episode of RHOA at the moment. You get back what you put out and it’s as simple as that. So, you can just call her Ken, because “Ken shuts the f–k up” as NeNe says and you can just call what she’s going through karma, because that’s all it is.
