While we love watching the “realities” our favorite celebs unfold, it is true that some lives just need to be spiced up every once and while with a dash of romance! And reality television producers and fame chasers take heed and listen and invent wildly entertaining tales of passion for our viewing pleasure. This list takes a look at some of those relationships that were simply inventions of reality TV!
14. Kenya Moore and Walter Jackson
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Kenya Moore hasn’t exactly had the best luck with romance while on the show. When she first joined the show back in 2012 she had a boyfriend named Walter Jackson. Their relationship didn’t last long, and in 2014 he spoke publicly about how Kenya asked him to ‘pretend’ to be her love interest on the show. Jackson did an interview with Daily Mail and said, “Kenya is a great actress, you have to give her that. She’s very good entertainment and the viewers want to tune in and watch what she’s going to do or say next, but nothing you see is real, I mean come on, does anyone actually believe what she says anymore?” He said the two dated briefly before she joined the show, but went their separate ways. When she landed the slot on RHOA she got back in touch with him and asked him to pose as her on-screen boyfriend. It was a win-win situation for both of them. Based on his own experience with Kenya, Jackson also stated that her romance with her “African Prince” was most likely fake as well. Her co-stars shared the same sentiment as no one had met this mystery man. She was even accused of paying him $40,000 to pose as her boyfriend and help create an interesting storyline for the show!
