“Real Housewives of Atlanta” stars NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore are clashing quite a bit on the upcoming season. In fact, the women nearly came to blows a couple of times. And their feud has spilled onto social media and their latest interviews. So it’s pretty clear that they won’t be able to make peace anytime soon.

Interestingly enough, Kandi Burruss has her own theory as to why Kenya and NeNe don’t get along. And she said that the two women clash because they are so much alike.

    Kenya and Nene are both alpha women who never feel like they are wrong about anything. I definitely agree with what Kandi said.

      They both are into self and always want to be the center of attention. Although Kenya is really mean and deceitful to people,when they call her out. She has narcissist traits. Might have missed out on that empathy trait. God be with her.

      Kenya and Nene might have one thing in common and that’s wanting to be the center of attention but that’s it Kenya is crazy and vindictive Nene is not

        I totally agree,Kenya is very vindictive lacks empathy,totally selfish.I pray that the child doesn’t mirror the mom. Something is going on with Kenya. She may need some therapy. Like I mentioned. God be with her.

          Yessir! they’re are seeking center of attention, which sad because no one can out shine them they always are bragging about what they haves better, And yet still miserable.

        Nene isn’t smart enough to be vindictive. She’s just a bully.

          It doesn’t even require intellect to be vindictive. NeNe is vindictive, which is why she tried to get Cynthia fired from the show after they fell out. Anyway, you can’t really call NeNe bully without saying the same thing about Kenya. Just saying. Kandi is spot on here.

    The jumpsuit thing was just a coincidence. Kenya and Nene are alike in terms of having larger-than-life personalities and that’s where it ends.

    Kenya is self-aware for the most part and can admit when she’s wrong. We saw this on WWHL the other day. I don’t think that Kandi could be friends with Kenya at all if she didn’t possess that level of humility.

      Nah. NeNe and Kenya have both admitted being wrong about things in the past. You can go to Google right now and find articles of both of them apologizing for things they’ve done in the past out of anger. But they are exactly the same. Both are very mean to people and never make any actual progress in changing their ways. Kandi is 100% correct. Honestly, she didn’t say enough because she likes both Kenya and NeNe. But the truth is they are both very cruel women who blame their actions on hurt feelings and people “coming for them” first. They are childish and need to grow up.

    Ooooh where’s my popcorn🤭 the Kenya stans and Nene stans gonna have all kinds of fits behind this post.

    Yes there are many similarities btw the two…starting with them both being abandoned by their mom.

    • Sharon

      February 19, 2020 at 3:28 pm

      The common experience of not having their mothers raise them. The abandonment by the most important person to a child’s development is a huge piece of the problem in both of these sisters. I pray they can find resolution to their issue and stop making everyone who tries to love them pay for the pain they’re carrying inside. They are both beautiful and strong.GOD has gifted them both with so much. My prayer is that they bury all the petty stuff and bond over their common pain.

        February 19, 2020 at 11:02 pm

        And the bad part is how they themselves haven’t seized upon this commonality and hurt that only the two of them share. But they both take things too far.

    They are a lot alike! I have been saying this for years now. But a lot of people won’t admit it because they stan one and hate the other. Both of them are very hurt women with mommy issues they never resolved. It’s easy for them to hurt other people because of those unresolved issues. And that’s just the truth.

    Kenya tried to be Nene’s friend when she first came on the show but Nene was too threatened by another alpha female joining to accept her attempt.

    • Loving Life 😊

      February 19, 2020 at 11:42 am

      That’s fine because Kenya gets threatened by other women all the time. Remember how badly she treated Kim Fields for being a successful actress because Kenya never could be? Now she’s threatened by Tanya. So NeNe and Kenya definitely have that in common.

      • Monica

        February 19, 2020 at 11:58 am

        Oh yeah, forgot about Tootie/Regine lol! But didn’t Kim say something shady about Kenya and that’s when she went ham on that lady. Same thing Nene does. Say anything remotely unpleasant about Nene and she declares war like when Tanya Sam said something about the sunglasses. Nene wanted to strangle Tanya at dinner that evening. Two peas in a pod!

        • Tulips

          February 19, 2020 at 1:06 pm

          Kim didn’t shade Kenya. What happened was Kenya was mad that Cynthia decided to have Kim do her commercial over Kenya. Kenya was insecure about it and then started to question Kim’s resume. Kenya then pulled Kim’s chair from under her and called her husband gay.

            I’m sorry but this comment made me laugh. Kenya really does take things way too far over the smallest disagreements. Like sis husband had to be gay just because Cynthia didn’t want Kenya to produce her commercial? Lmao!

    Hmmm, there’s so much to unpack with those two women’s similarities and differences…one would need a whole dissertation space🤣ijs

    The only people who don’t see this are the Kenya stans and Nene stans. The rest of us have known this for a long time.

      They sure are quiet today lol which actually says a lot!

  10. I said what I said

    February 19, 2020 at 2:27 pm

    I keep seeing Kenya stans and Nene stans like what does that mean? Do y’all been fans 🤷🏾‍♀️🤔?

    Anyways both the heffers are crazy. They love reading a chick but hate being called out on their bull and that sh-t is for the birds. If you can give a good read them they need to learn to take a good read. I think Kenya is more vile on the inside though. I love the way her husband will shut her a-s up though bravo to him. Nene got Marlo who will check the her a-s if she’s wrong and she’s a real friend to her. Kenya ain’t got a real friend but Nene does and that says a lot.

    Funny to see Kandi speak on friendship code considering how awful she did Phaedra during the breakdown of her marriage, and the many accusations Kandi threw out about her as a mother, wife, and friend….

    • Yeah I Said It!

      February 19, 2020 at 5:41 pm

      Right. LOL.

    • Rain J Taylor

      February 19, 2020 at 10:09 pm

      I never liked Kandi. Cackling is correct for Kandi and she is two faced. She was never a friend to Phadrea. Remember the vacation with Kenya in the yellow bathin suit. Kenya wa’s flirting with Phardreas’ husband.

    I would like to see Shamari back! Now she was a breath of fresh air and kept it 💯. A little delusional with her “legendary” husband bit but it was funny and harmless lmbo. Please no more Yovanna nor Tanya Sam. Thanks!

    BRAVO NEEDS TO CHANGE NENE’S NAME TO “MEME” BECAUSE ALL SHE CARES ABOUT IS HERSELF! She was my favorite housewife, but after this season I’ve changed that to Cynthia. She is so classy! I like Kenya too!

    There is no excuse for this behavior. My mother abandoned me as well. I am no where near as mean as these two. In my opinion, there is a difference. Kenya is viscous and her meanness is premeditated. She’ll admit this and own it. There is nothing classy about that. NeNe seems genuine about her apologies most of the time. There is no filter with either of them. None of their tactics are cute. Period!

    Kandi is right when she says they are alike. I like kenya,she needs to stop being petty. Nene is just a big bully that vyes for attention.
