#RHoA: Kenya Moore Mourns the Death of Her Grandma: "I Am Eternally Grateful to You"
Kenya Moore is paying tribute to her grandmother who passed away from Alzheimer's Disease.
In an emotional post on Instagram Monday night, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star opened up about her family member who was her mother figure in more ways than one.
"Today I lost the only woman in the world who has ever loved me unconditionally. My grandmother who raised me from 3 days old passed away," Kenya shared with her followers. "Thank you Jehovah for sending me your Angel who taught me everything I know about love, compassion, strength, kindness, selflessness, forgiveness, family, education, brains over beauty, inner beauty, strength, respect for your elders, being true to myself....she has helped mold me into the woman I am." The Bravo star added, "She truly was my best friend."
Viewers of Real Housewives of Atlanta know that Kenya had an estranged relationship with her mom and dad. In fact, she ran away from home at just 12 years old.
Ultimately, it was her grandmother who made Kenya feel love and accepted.
"Thank you momma for being the best woman I have ever met in my life. Thank you for approving of me and thank you for letting the world know how proud you are of me. I thank you for my life. I owe the world to you," the former Miss USA wrote. "I know you will never leave my side in life or after. I am eternally grateful to you. Thank you for loving me.#unconditionallove #God#gonebutneverforgotten #family #myangel."
While trying to grieve the loss of her grandmother, Kenya is comforted to know that she was able to meet her husband.
"Thank you Jehovah for allowing my last moment with her last month to be the last and for her to have met my loving husband," the former Celebrity Apprentice contestant shared. "I truly believe she waited until she knew that I finally found someone to love and cherish me the way she did. She could not rest until she knew I would be taken care of by someone who deserved me."
Kenya added, "She didn't recognize me at first but when I introduced them but she lit up with so much joy that my heart became overwhelmed. She approved and it was the happiest day of my life."

#AHS7: ‘American Horror Story: Cult’: Ryan Murphy Reveals Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters’ Character Names and Looks!
Keep the hints coming! After revealing the seventh season’s title last week, Ryan Murphy teased even
The series cocreator, 51, posted a sketch of Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson’s characters, who are both wearing black jackets. In the drawing, Peters sports long, scraggly blue hair and looks tired, with dark bags under his eyes. Meanwhile, Paulson has her hair in a lob and her eyes are rimmed with red.
This season, AHS will take place on the night of the 2016 presidential election and focus on a cult — and it will also apparently feature an epic love story. This is the second time that Paulson and Evans have played love interests. Last season, they portrayed a doomed married couple during AHS: Roanoke.
Murphy previously revealed the seventh season’s highly anticipated title on Twitter and at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday, July 20. At the event, the crowd was shown a video of scary clowns marching in different formations while actors walked through the aisles and handed out “Join Us” pins to Comic-Con goers.
AHS: Cult will also star Billie Lourd, Billy Eichner, Cheyenne Jackson, Alison Pill and Colton Haynes, and Lena Dunham will make a cameo in one episode. Murphy seemed to tease that he may appear onscreen for the first time ever as one of the clowns. He posted another Instagram photo on Sunday of a man in full clown makeup that could possibly be himself, writing, “Do you recognize this man? He’s active in the CULT."
American Horror Story: Cult premieres on FX Tuesday, September 5.

So did Blac Chyna purchase a new Ferrari?
Blac Chyna has bought herself a tFerrari 488 Spider, thought to cost in excess of $334K.
The 29-year-old star purchased the posh car just weeks after she had a dramatic falling out with her ex-partner Rob Kardashian, who posted intimate snaps of her online.
The 2017 Ferrari 488 Spider has been customized with Forgiato wheels, making it likely to cost more than the starting price of approximately $334K, TMZ reports.
It comes after Chyna – who has Dream Renée, eight months, with Rob and King Cairo, four, from her previous romance with Tyga – revealed she gave Rob back all the gifts he had bought her when they fell out.
She said, “I gave back Rob’s jewelry because I feel as though I can’t be bought. I’m not going to let [him] hang something over my head anymore. I also read that he said that he took the cars back. No, he did not. Those cars were leased, and I was going to have to give them back anyway.
“But the day he posted all that stuff, I had two of my assistants drive the cars over to his house along with the jewellery, along with my engagement ring. You know what? I didn’t even ask Robert for anything back. I’d actually bought him a Range Rover.”
And the mother-of-two insists she is independent financially and claims she actually made other people more money.
She added, “I make my own money. I’ve been making my own money for a very, very long time. My first job was at McDonald’s when I was 15.
“Years later, right after I had King, I wanted to do something that expressed myself, so I started Lashed Cosmetics. The lipsticks, the full skincare line, the beauty bar and 88Fin clothing trickled down from that. Nobody supports me at all. If anything, I’ve gotten other people more money … I’ll leave it at that.”
