A number of Hollywood celebrities have been confirmed to be visiting Kenya in July. The stars, cast members in the reality show The Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA), will be coming to attend the wedding of a RHOA pal, Shamea Morton, who is getting married to US-based Kenyan businessman Gerald Mwangi.
Those who have RSVP’d to attend include former Xscape singer Kandi Burrus, her husband Todd Tucker and former international model Cynthia Bailey. Others who are likely to attend are former Miss USA Kenya Moore and Shamea’s bestfriend Porsha Williams. “Kenya [Moore] is going to be in South Africa. She says she’ll try to come.
Kandi and Todd [Tucker] say they’re definitely coming. Cynthia [Bailey] says she’s definitely coming because she’s got some friends in Kenya already.
And I haven’t spoken to Porsha [Williams], but you know Porsha was supposed to be in my wedding, but I’m sure she’ll be there. I can’t see her not coming,” Shamea told The Daily Dish.
The wedding is expected to take place in Nyeri on July 22.
PD Wikendi has learnt that the reception will be at The Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club. Shamea and her fiancé, who already did their ruracio earlier in the month, are in the country this weekend meeting vendors and attending to other plans for the upcoming wedding.
Shamea said she wants to give her wedding guests an experience of a lifetime, partying all night long, going on safari and getting some beach fun. “I want it to be an experience for my guests, not just the wedding day.
I want them to leave like, ‘Oh my goodness, that was fun,’” said the bride-to-be, whose father-in-law has already named ‘Mumbi’. She is currently at the centre of drama with some RHOA cast members following allegations of being a lesbian and having a bedroom encounter with Kandi, and will appear in the show’s reunion set to air this Sunday to discuss the issue.
Mwangi, who owns companies that deal in mergers and acquisitions, met Shamea at a nightclub in Atlanta three years ago. She has been learning Swahili at Georgia State University, but the couple will settle in Atlanta after their wedding, where Mwangi and some of his family members have been living for years, since going to the States for studies
