Yours Truly CCG would like to say thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU to MISS USA 1993/ REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA/ CELEBRITY APPRENTICE star KENYA MOORE for BLESSING us with the VALENTINE'S DAY gift of this photo shoot in the new issue of ROLLING OUT!!!
Here are some interview highlights:
We’ve watched you navigate the entertainment industry across multiple platforms; whether it’s being a businesswoman, personality, model, actress or producer. How have you been able to juggle all of that?
Juggling is definitely not easy, but I think that I have a really busy mind so I’m always thinking about what is the next project, or what is the next venture that I want to explore. I’m always thinking about my
As a producer, give us some insight as to what it takes to make a film.
Well, that’s a really loaded question. The hardest part if you’re doing an independent film is raising the money. If you’re doing a studio film, it’s to get a studio to want to
How do you use your celebrity to help support your other projects?
It’s an excellent question, actually. I think that whenever you are very visible and in high demand, everybody wants to work with you, so you can get into any door. You can make one phone call and people always return your call and people want to meet with you. They want to be in business with you because you’re already successful and they know that the more visible that you are, [the more likely it is that the] eyes on you are potential supporters of yours and of your products and of your projects, so it helps tremendously. It opens every door imaginable for you.
As a celebrity, how do you reconcile that there are some people that will love you, and some people who will hate you, no matter what you do?
You can’t obsess about it yourself either, that is just who those people are. You can’t obsess about people who obsess about you in a negative or a positive way. Of course, it feels good when people support you and they’re positive. When they are negative you just have to be of the mindset that you know what, those people have their own issues and they’re just looking for someone to lash out at and you just happen to be the one that they picked today or that year or that month. I don’t think there’s anything that you can do about it. You can’t change how other people behave, perceive, treat you. You just have to worry about yourself and that’s all I really do.
Talk about your future as you come into your own and work on the next stage of Kenya’s life. What are your next steps?
For me everything is about the future of my family. Every decision that I’m making right now is about securing my brand, parlaying that into what that means to family down the road. When “Real Housewives” is over … when the last show is over, what will I have left?
At the end of the day, I am an aspirational brand that people want to buy into. People want beautiful hair, beautiful skin and they want to feel good about themselves — you know, workout gear and workout videos and things that just make you feel good when you see more products, and that’s just what I’m building to — and that’s not only securing a future for myself but for my family and my kids.
