Kenya & Kanye: A Love Story That Could Have Been?

The Atlanta Housewife shares an almost amorous run-in she once had with the rapper.

By Sarv Kreindler

Before Kanye West was the soon-to-be Mr. Kim Kardashian, it seems he had his eyes on another beauty queen.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Peacock and the Bravo App.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kenya Moore appeared on Access Hollywood Live this week and talked about a flirty encounter she once had with the hip-hop superstar. "Kanye likes beautiful women, curvy women," she responded coyly when asked if he hit on her, before clarifying that "he was really sweet when I met him. He seemed very humble. I thought he was a great guy."

Unfortunately, the encounter never turned into anything more because the former Miss USA was seeing someone at the time, despite the fact that she admits she was "very charmed" by Mr. West. Which might be too bad as there aren't enough anagrammable celebrity pairings in our lives (Kenya/Kanye. Ooh…and they could have named their baby Kayne!)

"It was just friendly, 'Hey, I want you to hear some music.' It was all above board," she added of the encounter. "I'm very happy that he’s found love and that him and Kim are having a good relationship."


Kenya also promised that the upcoming season of RHOA, which premieres on Sunday, "is full of twists and turns and it’s provocative." One thing we're sure it's full of thanks to our preview video? Twirling.

Watch the season preview of RHOA and tell us in the comments: do you think Kenya and Kanye would've made a good couple?
