Kenya Moore has been labeled the villian of Real Housewives of Atlanta for the last two seasons. Her inappropriate behavior and delutional thinking pushed the other cast members away. Last season we saw a different side of Kenya. She dropped her guard and made some good friendships. This doesn't mean Kenya isn't giving up some of her diva behaviors.
The filming of the Real Housewives season 6 reunion was a disaster thanks to Kenya's antics. She taunted Porsha Williams, who then proceeded to put her hands on the former Miss USA. NeNe Leakes told TMZ that she is team Porsha, and Kenya deserved being beaten. Kenya was then accused of faking her dog's death for dramatic effect on camera. Recently she was labeled a diva during the filming of Celebrity Apprentice.
If this isn't bad enough new allegations have surfaced that Kenya is broke and faking her fabulous lifestyle. A source told Radar Online “Most of the things that she shows off, like purses or cars, don’t belong to her. Kenya had a local car dealership in Atlanta give her a really expensive car on loan and then they got the publicity that she was driving a car from their lot. It was just during filming and it was a good deal for both of them. She was able to pretend she had a high end car and they got the free press.”
What is driving Kenya's behavior is tremendous anxiety and low self esteem. Kenya was abandoned by her mother after her birth. Last season she discussed the issue with her family. Kenya wanted to know why her mother won't ackowledge her existance. She feels if she could understand this then she would be able to address other issues in her life. No one in her family had an explanation for her. Kenya has also been falsely accused of trying to hook up with Phaedra Parks' husband Appolo Nida. Both of these items would wear anyone down. Kenya acts out because she may not have any other coping skills.
After seeing what a great person Kenya can be Lauren is hoping she gets help and can move forward in her life.
