Last night’s episode of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta saw Kenya Moore dealing with the devastating loss of her beloved dog Velvet.
Her little dog was attacked and killed by a neighboring dog.
“It happened so fast. I let her outside and then I heard her screaming,” Moore sobbed about her pet Yorkshire terrier. “I ran outside. She was on the other side of the gate. The dog had her in its mouth, dangling her.”
Kenya told her Aunt Lori she had rushed Velvet to the veterinary hospital, but it was too late.
“She was looking at me; I told her not to leave me. I could just see her letting go.”
Moore explained to Bravo’s cameras she’d had Velvet for seven years. Aunt Lori tried to console Kenya by offering a new perspective:
“Do you believe that you’re going to have a child?” Aunt Lori asked Moore. “Do you think you can give a child that same love you showed Velvet?
“That may be why God called Velvet away, so you can give this new child your undivided attention and your unconditional love.”
During the episode, Kenya tweeted her fans saying she’s just not strong enough to talk about what happened yet.
