Wherefore is Kenya Moore?

Thursday, July 16, 2009

In the early 1990s when hip-hop videos were gaining in sophistication and black models were starting to brand themselves, one of the most recognizable black women was Kenya Moore, who was Miss Michigan USA, then Miss USA 1993 (she competed in Miss Universe 1993 but lost).
Moore had it all: brains, beauty and an unquenchable desire to have the media and Hollywood take her seriously and respect her.

She repeatedly refused requests from Playboy, Penhouse and numerous black magazines to do nude centerfolds and photoshoots at a time when the money would have vaulted her career into the stratosphere.
But Moore took the high road.
As a result, she didn't quite catch on in Hollywood (her greatest movie exposure came in a black independent film called "Trois") and instead toured the black TV sitcom circuit, appearing in everything from "Martin" to "In the HOuse."
Where is she today?
Moore is busy promoted her Kenya Moore Foundation and her book "Game: Get Some," a relationship rules book.
