Kenya Moore Biography
Early life and career
Kenya was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan by her grandmother (and primary inspiration) Doris. She is of African-American ancestry, and is a graduate of Cass Technical High School; whose other notable alumni include Diana Ross, David Alan Grier, Lily Tomlin, and Miss USA 1990 Carole Gist (the first African American to win). After high school, she went to Wayne State University where she majored in Psychology.
Kenya competed in numerous beauty pageants in 1993; first becoming Miss Michigan USA, then Miss USA, and then competing in Miss Universe, where she finished fifth. At Miss Universe 1993, Kenya was heavily booed. This was attributed to strained political relations between Mexico and the United States (the pageant was held in Mexico.) Another reason was Kenya's entry into the top 10, while Miss Mexico 1993 failed to make the cut. It gained attention again in 2007 when Miss USA 2007 Rachel Smith was booed at Miss Universe also held in Mexico.
TV and film acting roles
