In this case, it was the fact that business and friendship doesn't really mix.
Parks announced awhile back that she was releasing a fitness video to teach women how they can develop a "donkey booty" like hers. The video, which hit stores in December, promised to help women develop a backside that doesn't shake or jiggle, but stands at attention.
Now, it looks like the production of that video caused friction between Parks and Moore. Parks asked her fellow "Real Housewives of Atlanta" cast member for help on the production side of things. Moore agreed, but it would cost Parks $100,000 and 10 percent of the back-end profits.
Kenya Moore claimed that the show wasn't paying her enough to even afford the $1,000 shoes she prefers. She needed the money. Parks ignored the demands and went to the boyfriend of Kandi Burress, who produced the video for a fraction of the cost. Moore angrily said she would just make her own fitness video.
Parks is just the latest person that Moore has crossed, already butting heads with Porsha Stewart before proclaiming herself the new star of "Real Housewives of Atlanta." That might even be what led NeNe Leakes to proclaim that she doesn't believe Moore was ever in a relationship with her "boyfriend" Walter Jackson.
