Back in March, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore appeared on Millionaire Matchmaker looking for love. On the show, Moore talked about her fear of being abandoned — she’s been proposed to seven times but it’s never worked out because of her fear. But she seemed very hopeful about a new relationship with her TV match James, posting this picture of the two of them after the episode aired.
Sometimes you can spend your whole life looking for Prince Charming when a King arrives. Thank you @pattistanger and @cynthiabailey10 and my fans for your love and support and desire for my happiness.

She also tweeted her thanks to Patti Stanger and her friend and fellow Real Housewife Cynthia Bailey for making it happen.

Her happiness then makes this news all the more painful. According to her Instagram post, Moore just learned that only a week after the show aired, James got married to someone else. And she had to find out on social media.
Ugggghhhhh, that sucks. How badly does someone have to want to be on TV to pull that? And on Millionaire Matchmaker even? Save that nonsense for The Bachelorette.
Of course, this has become a chance for some to kick Moore while she’s down. Porsha Williams is throwing shade with this (now deleted) Instagram post: “Return to sender… #Karma.”
And Vivica Fox isn’t even hiding it.

As for the matchmaker herself, Kenya fans have been protesting Stanger by filling her Instagram mentions with corn. That’ll show her.
