Kenya Moore's Surprise Visit From a Family Member Was Kind of Shocking

We feel like we "get" Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kenya Moore a lot more now that we've witnessed her somewhat dysfunctional family reunion on the show. When the former pageant queen tried to get her brood back together in Detroit, it had one particularly uncomfortable moment.

Kenya's mom has made it clear she wants nothing to do with her, but that hasn't stopped the reality star from trying to get into her good graces. You'd think it was insulting enough that her mother refused to answer the door when she knocked, but on Sunday night's episode, her Aunt Lori actually seemed angry at Kenya that she'd even attempt to contact the woman.

When Aunt Lori showed up at Kenya's door with her cousin Che, it was clear that she had business to tend to. Lori was very open with the fact that she didn't approve of Kenya visiting her mother and insisted that she stop trying to have a relationship with her. While this was obviously hard for Kenya to hear, the visit actually ended okay, with Lori and Che insisting they love her and are there for her no matter what. Che even said she was more than happy to share her mom (Lori) with her, as she has been doing her entire life.

So in the end it was kind of sweet, if not a little weird. Can't anyone understand why Kenya is still desperate to have a relationship with her mom after all of these years?

Seeing the situation unfold onscreen has made us feel more compassion for Kenya, who can sometimes feel overly aggressive on the show. We're glad she's able to build a stronger relationship with her dad, and hopefully put the struggles with her mother behind her.
