One of the main topics of drama on The Real Housewives of Atlanta in the past few weeks has been surrounding Kenya Moorebringing up rumors she had heard that Kim Fields‘s husband, Christopher Morgan, was gay. Morgan recently spoke to E! Online and addressed these rumors and Moore. What did he have to say specifically?
Kim Fields Husband Gay Rumors Addressed By Him
When asked about his response to what Moore said, Morgan told E! that, “When someone spreads lies about you, you can either go at them in a defensive manner and be seen as defensive, or you can just let a lie be a lie. And she kind of put me in the middle with that situation because how I would handle that situation without the entire world watching is different than I would when someone spreads a lie about you in front of the nation and world. So, I felt immediately it was going to be important for me, at some time, to set the record straight that she had fabricated the entire conversation.”
“There is no one in the industry that calls me anything other than my name,” Morgan continued, “especially to my face. Kimmy and I weren’t together in the Living Single days. So, she had to stretch pretty far to get that.”
“Now, I understand, I’m a Broadway performer without a real name, as far as Hollywood goes, and when Kim and I first got together, there was all kinds of speculation about me,” Morgan added. “Was I a deadbeat? Was I broke? Was I a drug addict? Was I a homosexual? There were all kind of rumors about me because nobody knew who this guy was dating, and eventually marrying, Kim Fields. She basically took that speculation, one aspect of it, and ran with it.”
Morgan had more to add, revealing that, “What does bother me is that she took the platform that she did to spread the lie that she did, but at this point Kenya and I have spoken. She’s apologized. She’s apologized quite publicly. Maybe there’s some room down the road for us to actually be friends. Right now, not at all. We’ll see. The people that are watching the show will have to see. I don’t know where my lady stands. The bottom line with that is, I’ll be completely honest, if the shoe was on the other foot and somebody spread a rumor like that about my spouse, they don’t really get back on the Christmas list for a couple years.”
“It’s funny,” Morgan continued. “Kenya says a lot of things that are insulting. Some of them she means, and some of them she doesn’t. The problem is she doesn’t really know. Now, speaking specifically to this point, again, being in the industry that I’m in, being the person that I am, without judgements on anyone’s personal life, I have a lot of people in my life, a lot of friends in my life, a lot of colleagues in my life that are homosexuals. I love them dearly as the people that they are. I know that they were offended by the statements made. And it’s disappointing to me that someone would make such reckless statements without thinking of the true repercussions of it.”
“What I mean by the true repercussions of it is, the man who’s your boss, you just labeled as weak or inept or unable or lesser than,” he expounded. “And I think that’s pretty thoughtless and stupid, if you ask me, honestly. And she’s going to have to deal with Andy Cohen on that. She’s going to have to deal with a bunch of the other people that are above her on that. She’s going to have to deal with the quote-unquote industry that in her mind loves her so much over that. And that’s not my business, that’s hers. I did not dig that hole.”
