Real Housewives of Atlanta reality TV star, Kenya Moore released a statement yesterday saying she was surprised and hurt that her hook up on Millionaire Matchmaker, who was also featured on the RHOA show, is now a married man. She insisted that she did not know this previously and only found out after MTO broke the news of the man's marriage a few days ago.
The man she hooked up with on Bravo's Millionaire Matchmaker is James Freeman, and today the man's wife, Jaimi Gregory, spoke out and said that Kenya knew her husband was in a committed relationship at least two weeks ago.
Jaimi tells Radar Online that her husband had even forgotten he did the RHOA show and only told her about it when the commercials started airing.
"He said he went on two or three dates after the show aired with Kenya. He told me they just kissed and nothing else. He said she just wasn’t the right person for him, but he wished her the best.”
Freeman’s wife said that in the last two weeks Moore started reaching out to her husband again. The RHOA star was apparently not happy with his response and sent him a “mean” response, according to his wife.
“Kenya wrote to him saying that they should celebrate since their ratings were so high. But he told her that he had met someone and fell in love so it wasn’t appropriate for him to talk with her anymore. Kenya wrote to him and told him that he hurt her brand. Of course he didn’t respond to her.
But a little more than a week ago she reached out again and told him she needed a favor. When he asked what it was she told him she needed to talk to him in person. He didn’t want to do that so he didn’t respond.”
Gregory told Radar that her husband was reluctant to meet with Moore because “he told her he was seeing somebody. She knew he was seeing somebody. She was not respecting him anymore.”
It seems it was the short timeline of the romance between Kenya's TV boo and his new wife that got the reality star on the wrong foot, especially as the TV romance was such a hit with RHOA fans. Freeman's wife explains;
"James was on Millionaire Matchmaker in September 2014 and I met him in December. We met on Match.com and three months later we were engaged. Then on Good Friday, April 3, 2015 we got married. We just knew right away that we were in love.”
