Kenya Moore is giving Matt Jordan another chance. On Sunday’s episode of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” Kenya and Matt rekindled their relationship after splitting last June following a violent altercation in Mexico.
During an appearance Sunday night on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live,” Kenya told host Andy Cohen that she and Matt aren’t living together in her home Moore Manor but they are trying to figure things out. “We’re working on our relationship. I’ve learned a lot throughout the year about myself, and definitely, we’re working on it,” she said.
Kenya also discussed an upcoming episode where Matt kicks out the window in her garage. When asked how many “strikes” she’s going to give Matt, Kenya responded: “I don’t know. I’m learning as I go. And I clearly have love for this man, and I see that there are issues that we need to work out and that he needs to work on.”
Kenya went on to tell Cohen that she doesn’t think Matt has anger issues, despite his repeated outbursts. “I don’t think it’s anger, I think it’s different. [My family members] know that he’s a lot younger than me,” she said. “He’s immature at times. He acts out. He’s 29.”
She added: “I feel like that’s where he is. I think he’s never been in a relationship this intense, and he’s really in love. But he’s also very immature at times and he acts out.”
Kenya and the fitness trainer called it quits over the summer after getting into an argument during a trip to Mexico during Memorial Day weekend. TMZ reported at the time that things got so intense between the former Miss USA winner and Matt that she locked herself in their room, and he “kicked the door in and broke it.”
Supposedly, the fight didn’t end in Mexico. The outlet wrote that once back in Atlanta, Matt took off with Kenya’s luggage, and another altercation occurred when he showed up to her house and dumped her belongings in her driveway.
Matt addressed the messy breakup on Instagram, writing that he was to blame for things going downhill between him and Kenya. “Looking back I blame myself totally,” he posted, via the Shade Room. “I was in denial of my flaws until late in the relationship. It causes me to feel untrusting in her because I did not feel like I had her FULL love and attention. I didn’t realize that I created my own circumstances.”
“Real Housewives of Atlanta” airs Sundays at 8 p.m. EST on Bravo.
