Kenya has experienced extreme heartbreak, and she believes she may never find love. After Kenya learned that her boyfriend is married, HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY learned that the ‘RHOA’ star is scared of dating again — she may even take a break from it altogether.
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore, 44, has been looking for love in all the wrong places. After her Millionaire Matchmaker pick turned out to be married, she’s hesitant about finding love again. HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY learned that what Kenya fears most about getting back into the dating game is someone using her for fame.
Kenya Moore’s Dating Fears — Think Men Only Date Her For Fame & Money
Kenya has bad luck when it comes to dating. From men lying about her coming onto them to fake boyfriends, she has been through a lot. Her biggest problem is trying to figure out if men want her for who she is or if they just like her for her money and status.
“She feels like, for the most part, men want to be with her for her fame and not for her heart,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY, regarding Kenya getting back into the dating game.
The reality star is proud of the money she’s earned, but when she’s dating, it becomes a burden. “She doesn’t know what to do about that. It’s not like she’s about to give up her career in order to have a man,” the source revealed. “She prides herself on supporting herself financially. It makes her feel good and gives her a sense of self worth.”
The former Miss USA has one main goal, moving forward in her romantic life: to find someone who loves her and not just her fame. “She wishes that some men would stop being so scared of successful women. It’s not a good look,” our insider explained. “She’s not giving up on men completely. She just needs some time to process what just happened,” they added.
After Kenya’s most recent relationship with James Freeman (also known as “King”), whom she met on The Millionaire Matchmaker, turned out to be a lie, it’s no wonder why Kenya is steering clear of men right now. On May 12, Kenya revealed on Instagram that she had discovered her current boyfriend got married a week after their episode aired!
“Kenya couldn’t believe James got married a week after their episode of Millionaire Matchmaker aired on Bravo,” a source previously told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She really connected with him and saw a bright future together. Kenya was kept in the dark about his marriage because James and Kenya had been long-distance ever since they met on the show. He lives out west and she’s in Atlanta, so he’s been living this double life.”
Keyna definitely deserves a good man and we wish her the very best.
We hope Kenya doesn’t give up on finding love just yet, either! HollywoodLifers, do you think Kenya should take a break from dating?
