How to Watch

Kenya will star as Monique, "the feisty, high-powered PR executive for the new SHARK WORLD hotel built by arrogant billionaire Aston Reynolds," the RHOA actress announced in a post on Instagram Tuesday.

Bravo’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta Star KENYA MOORE Has Been Added As One Of The Stars Of The Hit SyFi Hit Cult Franchise "Sharknado 4" Los Angeles, CA March 17, 2016 – Reality Personality, Entrepreneur, Beauty Expert, Actress & Producer, Kenya Moore best known for her role and Queen Diva of the hit Bravo series the "Real Housewives of Atlanta," will next be seen as one of the stars of Sharknado 4. In the film she will play ‘MONIQUE’ the feisty, high-powered PR executive for the new SHARK WORLD hotel built by arrogant billionaire Aston Reynolds. Sharknado 4 (WT) with Ian Ziering and Tara Reid back in their starring roles, takes place five years in the future. The film also stars Gary Busey, Imani Hakim (“Everybody Hates Chris”), Cody Linley (“Hannah Montana,” “Melissa & Joey”), Cheryl Tiegs (“The Apprentice”) and Tommy Davidson.

It sounds like Kenya already filmed her role for the movie, which is set to premiere in July, Variety reports, and has hit if off with Ian Ziering, who plays the hero of the franchise, Fin.


As we know from RHOA, Sharknado 4 won't be Kenya's first foray into acting. In addition to seeing her star in her pilot for Life Twirls On, Kenya has also appeared in the films Trois, Waiting to Exhale, and I Know Who Killed Me. And considering the fact that she holds her own in the often chilly waters of RHOA, surviving a few shark-filled 'nadoes should be no problem for Kenya. 

Kenya may also be joined by some fellow Bravolebs in Sharknado 4. Her RHOA castmate Cynthia Bailey has also reportedly joined the movie's cast as Tech Addison, one of the top rocket scientists and astrophysicists for Aston's (Tommy Davidson) energy company Astro-X, according to The Wrap. Cynthia did not immediately respond to The Daily Dish's request for confirmation.

The Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger was also spotted posing with Ian on what looks like the set of Sharknado 4.

So great working with you @pattistanger ! So funny I went to prom with your cousin 35 yrs ago.

In addition to these Bravolebs, the cast of Sharknado 4 will also include Tara Reid, David Hasselhoff, Gary Busey, and Cheryl Tiegs, according to Variety.

Of course, these wouldn't be the first Bravolebs to appear in the Sharknado franchise. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Kim Richards and Shahs of Sunsets' Reza Farahan both had cameos in last summer's Sharknado 3.

The Real Housewives of Orange County cast has also had its own brush with Sharknadoes. You'll see what we mean in the clip, below.
