Kenya Moore Explains Why NeNe Leakes is Jealous of Her & Claims She’s Not Trying to Replace Her

“Real Housewives of Atlanta” beauty Kenya Moore stopped by “Watch What Happens Live” last night to address all of the drama that’s been going down the last few episodes of the hit reality show and of course she spoke on her now ruined friendship with NeNe Leakes.

Kenya thinks NeNe is jealous of her because she might feel Kenya is a threat and a ploy from producers to remove her from the show. But Kenya seems to think there’s room for two head housewives. When asked by a caller if NeNe is just jealous, she says:

“Knowing what I know and knowing what I’ve experienced and what you will see throughout the season, yes.

“I think that she’s threatened by my position on the show. Well I don’t back down on her and I came in last season and I feel like she had moved on from the show. She had all these other jobs and now that she doesn’t have it…I think she views me as her replacement. And I think that is what’s causing her to flip on me because she doesn’t have the Hollywood jobs anymore.

“It’s unfortunate because I think there’s enough room for everyone. I think we all have blessings coming our way. And what’s meant for you is meant for you and you can’t go out of your way to try to sabotage people and do the things that I know 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.”

This isn’t the first time Kenya said she believed NeNe was jealous and this comes just days after she suggested NeNe might have been high during the pillow talk. Check out the video below:

    As usual, Kenya spoke the truth. And she’s right. There’s room for her AND NeNe. I may like Kenya more but I think NeNe contributes lots of drama to the show too. There’s a reason the show has done so well now and that’s because the combination of Kenya and NeNe makes great television!

      Yeah you’re right, NeNe and Kenya bring a lot to the show. Bravo has never had these kinds of ratings.

    I know Andy and rest of the Bravo producers are loving all of this drama. LOL.

    Oh girl whatever. You’re the former Miss USA and the best you could do is a reality show now? There’s not much to be jealous of.

      Exactly! I applaud people like Vanessa Williams who took the opportunity and ran with it like acting and singing built a real career. Not someone who was a guest on tv shows every once and a blue moon and now is on reality show to stay relevant. Jealous girl bye!

    Let Kenya tell it, everyone is jealous of her.

    I don’t really care for Kenya but I feel like people are doing the most right now. For one, it’s just a reality show. The truth is there is supposed to be drama. I don’t agree with all these people being fake outraged and demanding Kenya or NeNe should be kicked off. For what? They make the show entertaining. Sit back and enjoy the damn show.

    NeNe is not going anywhere. Neither is Kenya. Do people not understand that the people that bring the most drama keep their spots and get pay raises? It’s the boring people that get the boot.

    Somebody really needs to give Kenya a reality check how pathetic she really is for someone who use to be Miss USA that has slipped down to competing for a position on a reality show like that’s a prize.

    Kenya gets on my last nerves but she does make the show juicy. I knew her and NeNe would eventually fall out but I still think Kenya is a punk. Why doesn’t she say all these things to NeNe’s face. At least Sheree would have had balls to say this to NeNe.

    Bye! Kenya is on there trying to low-key convince Andy to get rid of NeNe. Why doesn’t she ever own up to her messy ways?

    Am I the only one tired of Cynthia starting mess and then not getting called out for it?

      Not at all. Last night I was so annoyed with Cynthia and her sister. I can’t stand when people throw rocks and hide their hands.

    I really feel like multiple people played a role in why the fight happened…To blame the whole thing on one person doesn’t really make sense.

    Kenya’s fans have really souped her head up. Now she really thinks she’s all that and bag of chips, but when you think about it her career has been one big flop since she won Miss USA. Being on RHOA isn’t anything to be cocky about when you could have done so much more. The show was an upgrade for a nobody like NeNe. But for someone like Kenya, it’s a huge downgrade.

    Porsha was the only one who had sense that night because she got her things and left! That’s what people should have done instead of fighting. Let NeNe look like a fool as her guests leave.

      Yeah Porsha was the smartest person that night. All of them should have left and not even let things get that far.

    I’m so tired of Kenya and her always trying to play the victim card. Kenya has proven on numerous occasions that she can get physical (remember when she got in NeNe’s face and grabbed her ear?), she had to be restrained when she tried to fight Porsha and threatened to punch Porsha in the face. Are we supposed to forget these things happened? And she got up and walked towards a woman who was only doing what she does each episode…INSTIGATING. Natalie was sitting down. She didn’t even call Kenya’s extra a-s out her name. So why was it necessary to walk over there to her? The problem was she couldn’t take Natalie doing to her what she’s done since she got on the show. She most certainly stirred the pot on numerous occasions, but NeNe can’t? And why was it ok for Brandon to try to fight Kordell last season when Kordell was calmly telling him to chill out because he’s always turning up too fast. And if it’s ok for Brandon to defend Kenya, it’s ok for Chris to defend Natalie. I wish people would tell the truth and shame the devil.

    I honestly think I could take Kenya more seriously if she took some responsibility for what happened that night. But once again, she doesn’t and she plays the victim card. Chris got up and WALKED towards the damn food table and stayed near Natalie the whole time. He was not towering over Kenya when he was talking. There was plenty of distance between them. Kenya decided to then get up and walk towards him and his wife. So because she’s Kenya, he’s supposed to sit there and let her get in his wife’s face? Or possibly his? No. Not everyone is ok with that contrary to belief. Where I’m from, you don’t walk towards someone if you don’t want things to go left during a disagreement. When you walk up on me, I’m going to defend myself. You don’t need to be in my face to plead your case or get your point across. I think it’s ghetto that someone who wants to call herself educated such as Kenya thinks it’s ok to get up in someone’s face just to have a discussion. But Kenya and her fans keep acing like it’s the other way around and Chris walked towards her first. That is not how it happened and the fact that she won’t own up to it is why I can’t deal with her.

      Man if I was arguing with someone and they came walking towards me rolling their neck and fingers all over the place I’d be ready to defend myself too. Kenya is from Detroit. She knows what she did was aggressive but she will never admit it. But let someone do that to her, she’d be ready to fight. She ain’t fooling me. LOL.

    I’d love to see what Kenya would have done if Natalie would have towards her talking sh-t. You can never assume someone isn’t going to harm you. She did the most and it caused all hell to break lose. The fact of the matter is Natalie was sitting down. Why get up and walk towards her Kenya? Ain’t Kenya in her 40s? By now she should know how to defend herself in a discussion against another woman who is sitting down. Chris was standing up and never walked over to get in Kenya’s face.

    I’m glad to see someone bring up the fact that Porsha was the only one right in this situation. She’s the only one who told Chris he should sit down. And she’s the only one who had the intelligence (oh the irony) to get up and leave because the energy in the room wasn’t right. Everyone handled things wrong that night except Porsha. Fans won’t admit it but looking at the episode again, that’s how I see it.
