Anyone who has followed NeNe Leakes over the years on the Bravo reality series “Real Housewives of Atlanta” knows once someone gets on NeNe’s bad side, they usually stay there. This season it has been Kenya Moore. Following the season finale on Sunday, NeNe appeared on “Watch What Happens Live” with Andy Cohen. As In Touch Weekly reports on April 14, the “Dancing with the Stars” contestant let off some steam about Kenya.
The 46-year-old star did not hold back when asked about her feelings about Kenya. Like some of the other cast members, NeNe has had a hard time connecting with the former Miss USA winner. NeNe expressed her dislike for Kenya saying, “I personally do not like Kenya, but I am all for the good of the show. I have been here since day one.”
In fact, NeNe is the only remaining original housewife still with the show. She has had her battles through the seasons, but recent success as an actress and other business ventures have kept her out of the spotlight when it comes to the drama of the show until this season. The reason for that is what NeNe describes as what Kenya brings to the show… drama.
“I think she is good for the show…because she’s drama. She doesn’t take her medications before shooting and so, I think she is great for the show,” NeNe said before discussing the infamous fight that breaks out between Kenya and Porsha Stewart on the upcoming three-part “Real Housewives of Atlanta” reunion show.
The much-discussed brawl that takes place during the reunion will just be a piece of all the drama that will explode between the cast members. NeNe talked about the brawl and told Cohen that in her opinion, Kenya was the blame.
“I felt like Kenya kept prying Porsha. You can’t just sit here and talk to me and then have your paper in my face the entire night like that is not cool to me,” says NeNe. “I felt like it is a violation and I felt like Kenya violated her over and over again.”
Kenya’s role in the brawl as well as the drama she has caused over the past two seasons is why NeNe and a few of the other housewives are siding with Porsha and threatening to walk away from the show if Porsha is fired. You can see how it all unfolds when the three-part reunion show kicks off April 20 on Bravo.
