Kenya Moore Explains That Lupita Nyong'o Snub
What really happened at the Golden Globes? The 'RHOA' star speaks out.
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore very famously tweeted about her icy run-in with 12 Years a Slave Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o at the Golden Globes last month. Now, Kenya is breaking down what exactly occurred when she tried to get some face time with the movie star.
"I have to say I'm a huge fan and I was in my feelings, and I saw her and I fanned out," she told Wendy Williams on her talk show. "I was like 'Oh my god, it's Lupita!' She's a chocolate girl, she won an Academy Award, of course I'm going to be in support of her."
Kenya then broke down further the sequence of events. "My friend went to go ask for an autograph and she was turned down and I just thought 'Oh, really?' she recalled. "I was trying to get a picture with Taylor Swift and she was taking pictures with everyone," she added. "Everybody was taking pictures.î
However, as she's previously stated, she doesn't seem to have any hard feelings for Lupita. "I never even spoke to her, but I'm still a fan," she said. "I still want her to win."
Kenya first tweeted about the interaction the day after the big show, where she also got the chance to hang out with Danielle Brooks, a.k.a. Taystee, from Orange Is the New Black.
"@Lupita_Nyongo refused 2 take pics After 2 movies #girlbye," she wrote.
At the time, she also voiced her support of the actress. "no I was a huge fan!!!!" she further tweeted. "There were 1000 A listers being humble," she wrote. "it was disappointing that's all. I want 2 always stay humble."
