Kenya Moore: NeNe Leakes Is Jealous of Me
"She views me as her replacement," Moore admits on Watch What Happens Live.
As if last night's episode of RHOA wasn't tense with Cynthia Bailey and Kandi Burruss violent confrontation, the War of Words continued when Kenya Moore sat down with Andy Cohen on last night's Watch What Happens Live.
When one viewer called in to ask Kenya about her friendship with NeNe Leakes, the "million-dollar question" came up regarding the fight: does NeNe dislike Kenya because she's jealous? Kenya thinks so: "Absolutely."
"Knowing what I know and knowing what I've experienced and what you will see throughout the season, yes," Kenya said. "I think she's threatened [by] my position on the show. I think that's the better wording. I don't back down on her. I came in last season, when I feel like she had moved on from the show. She had all these other jobs, and now that she doesn't...I think she kind of views me as her replacement. I think that's what's causing her to flip on me, because she doesn't have the Hollywood jobs anymore." Kenya is referring to NeNe scoring roles on Glee and the New Normal, the latter of which was cancelled. (NeNe has been back filming more episodes of Glee this year.)
"It's unfortunate, because I think there's enough room for everyone," she continues. "I think we all have blessings coming our way, and what's meant for you is meant for you. You can't go out of your way to try to sabotage people and do the things that she's tried to do to me while on the show that I will save for the reunion, because it's a lot of tea."
It'll make for one reunion to remember, that's for sure, but through it all Kenya laments the loss of her friendship with NeNe, an issue that's continued to spiral throughout this RHOA season. "I was a NeNe fan," she says. "We were very friendly. I was happy with the way our friendship was developing. And then all of a sudden, out of nowhere, she just attacks me. I've never seen anything like it."
