'RHOA' stars NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore have not paid up on charity donation

During the third installment of the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" reunion show, NeNe Leakes put up a challenge to Kenya Moore. Amid the bickering about whether or not Kenya's previous charity event was a sham, NeNe challenged Kenya that she would put up $20,000 to the charity of Kenya's choice only if she would match it. On Tuesday, Radar Online reports that neither "RHOA" star has ponied up the money.

It all started when the women started talking about whether or not Kenya Moore's event for Saving Our Daughters was legit. There were previous reports that the charity never received any money aside from a small personal contribution from Kenya herself. The other women reportedly did not put up any donations and if all is to be believed, no one else did either because no other money was ever turned over.

Of course Kenya took the opportunity to bash other members of the "RHOA" cast for either not showing up or not putting any money up. NeNe Leakes was quick to quiet Moore though when she offered to make a rather large donation of $20,000 to any charity Kenya chooses. The only catch is that Kenya Moore must match that amount first.

Kenya was silent for enough time to become uncomfortable when she reluctantly agreed. She then named Detroit Public Schools as her charity and the women agreed to cut a check. NeNe even went so far as to suggest a certified check so there would be no squabbling over the authenticity of payment.

The "Real Housewives of Atlanta" reunion show was taped more than a month ago now. That should give Kenya and NeNe plenty of time to cut those checks but reports say that no money has been donated to date. Officials in the Detroit Public Schools system are very aware of the promise to donate but say nothing has been received.

Will Kenya and NeNe make good on their promise to donate? It's pretty obvious that NeNe can cut a check at any point and she was calling Kenya Moore to task. It's very likely that Kenya doesn't really have the kind of cash flow to support such a huge donation. That could be why she paused for so long before taking NeNe up on the challenge.
