On The Real Housewives of Atlanta episode ‘Shade for Days,’ while Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss can’t see eye to eye at Cynthia Bailey’s eyewear party, Kenya Moore hits an emotional wall, almost literally. While building her dream home, she discovers that “her family relationships need construction too.” Kenya Moore’s father, Ronald Grant, who has appeared on RHOA before, reappears.
When father and daughter have a heart-to-heart, Kenya cries to him, “I needed you as a teenager. I needed my dad,” she says. To which her father quickly replies, “We do the best we can with the cards we’re dealt.” Kenya’s parents were 16-years-old when Kenya was born. Her mother, Patricia Moore, talked about putting Kenya up for adoption. Ronald asked his mother, Doris Grant, to raise Kenya. The mother of five children agreed. Kenya says that when she did see Patricia at family gatherings as a child, “She would treat me like I was invisible,” says Kenya. Kenya hasn’t communicated with her mother since she was 12. Her father does stay in touch with her. The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs Sundays at 8pm on Bravo.
