Porsha Stewart and Kenya Moore made fireworks when they debuted on "Real Housewives of Atlanta" this season, and neither woman took a liking to each other. Wetpaint.com reported on Jan. 2 that Cynthia Bailey came out in defense of Moore by saying that Stewart was offensive in her comments over the season.
Bailey took offense to Stewart's comments about the former beauty queen's age at a recent charity event. As a matter of fact, Stewart has called out Moore on her age on numerous occasions this season.
Bailey said that she is 45 and proud of it, and she will let anyone know how great she feels despite the fact that she is in her 40s. She said that Stewart may not realize how offensive she is being to anyone over a certain age, but she should be careful in the future how she regards her elders.
“You have to respect the people that came before you,” Cynthia advises. “I’ve never looked at anyone that I looked up to and respected, I’ve never looked at their age; that had nothing to do with their character.”
Moore's age might be part of the reason she allegedly staged a romantic relationship for the show, an act that has come back to bite her in recent weeks. That made the incident at a Stewart fund raising event where Porsha said no one probably even remembers Moore's Miss USA win, since it was so long ago.
