Kenya Moore NeNe Leakes The Real Housewives of Atlanta - RHOA

Kenya Moore Discusses Fight With NeNe; Says She Didn’t Fear Any Housewives!

This season on Real Housewives of Atlanta we will be served a whole lot of drama courtesy of new girl in town Kenya Moore! The former Miss USA is dishing about her infamous fight with RHOA veteran NeNe Leakes which has been previewed in the promos for the new season. Kenya clearly had no apprehension getting down to the nitty gritty and says she didn’t fear any of the Housewives!

Kenya tells the New York Post that her fight with NeNe is an episode not to be missed! She says, “Listen, we were in Anguilla. There were people that were being rude, obnoxious, distasteful, and that doesn’t sit well with me and so I had a very visceral response and NeNe was definitely a part of that. It’s definitely an episode that people will want to watch.”

Kenya had a career established back in Hollywood before she moved to Atlanta about a year ago, and says the relationships with the Housewives have been totally different than any other relationships she had in LA. “I’ve been best friends with people like Tyra Banks and Tracey Edmonds and Shaun Robinson. We have a great sisterhood. We’re supportive of each other. We’re kind to each other, and we’re good girlfriends. I didn’t experience that fighting in my normal life in Hollywood. It is definitely a marked difference to me in the Atlanta situation,” reveals Kenya.

Although she was new not only the Atlanta scene, but also new to the show, Kenya was not afraid of anything coming in. Kenya tells the New York Post,  “You know what, I’ve been in worse situations. I’m a fighter, I’m from Detroit. I’m very resilient. I’m really not afraid of anything. So, some reality stars from Atlanta? No, I wasn’t afraid of any of them. I’ve been to the Academy Awards, I’m not afraid of a ‘Housewife’!”

Kenya does reveal however, that some of the fun did become very dark at times. It seems like Bravo struck the gold casting Kenya to RHOA! I’m excited to see her stir up trouble, and she seems like a strong woman who can handle it. If I were new I would personally not want to mess around with NeNe and piss her off. Are you excited to see Kenya stand up to NeNe? Smart move or not?

  • I enjoyed the preview that showed Kenya lying across a bed with her head in a suitcase and the lid over her face. Her husband is in the bathroom and calls out “Kenya, did you remember to take your meds?” Reminds me of another HW on another franchise that sat in her suitcase having a meltdown. Not sure I’m going to like Kenya.

  • um…bipolar much? i guess i need to attend the next academy awards to gain strength and being less fearful

  • I am not looking forward to seeing whatever goes on between her and Apollo. The thought makes my stomach turn.

  • I’m not sure what to make of her since we’ve not seen her yet. She seems to be a name dropper which doesn’t impress me much.

  • I also don’t know what everyone else is watching in the promos. Clearly Kenya is friendly with Nene and having issues with some of the other ladies. Looks like Nene is just trying to get in the middle to BREAK UP a fight and Kenya is trying to get Nene out of her way. The reason Kenya didn’t directly say Nene’s role in the ‘fight’ is because, as she said, Nene was just a ‘part’ of it in that Nene was trying to stop the crazy. IMO

  • Why do people keep calling it a fight? Unless I am blind, the promos look as though Nene is trying to break up a fight or heated argument.

    • I know! It looks like she just jumps in and grabs her hands. This girl looks like she just begging for attention! She like wants to be the next Nene and Kim

    • Well we know Bravo’s famous editing… so maybe it is a fight and we only see part of it or maybe it’s nothing at all and it’s being blown out of proportion… neither would surprise me

    • I agree, I think Nene was breaking up the fight. Bring it Kenya. I can not wait to see her and Phadra High Class Parks get into it. No reality tv without drama.
