“So Many Of These Girls Are Thirsty”: Nene Leakes Pens Blog About Kenya Moore
If you tuned in to Sunday’s premiere of Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA), you saw Porsha reveal some dark secrets about the nature of her relationship with soon-to-be ex-husband Kordell, you met the new man in Phaedra’s life-“Mr. President” – her son Dylan, and you witnessed the beginning of the drama between NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore. Prior to this season, Nene tried to see the best in Kenya despite her numerous issues with the other housewives. But currently, the two are not on the best of terms because Kenya never responded to NeNe’s wedding invitation. As you know, NeNe re-married her ex-husband Gregg Leakes in grand fashion this summer. Although Kenya may have another side to the story, NeNe released a blog statement on the Bravo TV Network website clarifying why she isn’t a fan of Kenya, and why she wasn’t feeling her trying to give NeNe a guilt trip about not calling when Kenya was getting evicted. Here’s what she said:
“If you have ever been a bride, then you know the high stress involved to plan and deliver a dream wedding. My wedding was no exception. I would go so far as to say mine was even more stressful, because I was getting married on TV and the world was invited to attend. I invited family, friends, business associates, and some people out of respect! Kenya fit in the respect category, because I didn’t know her well, but we were on the show together. She responded on Twitter by saying congrats to us, which showed me she wanted the world to know she was invited and also wanted them to know she didn’t attend. The motives people have are sometimes crystal clear! As you saw, Kenya visited with Cynthia and told her she thought her “friends” would have reached out to her during her time of eviction (referring to me, Kandi, and Cynthia).
During the summer, Kenya Moore‘s landlord tried to evict her after she claimed the reality star did not pay her rent or up keep the property. Unfortunately, the real reason why the landlord tried to evict Moore is because it seemed that she wanted more money in a divorce settlement. As NeNe continued her letter, she stated that she didn’t reach out to Moore during that time because she felt the whole situation was just gossip:
“Foolishness! She approached me about why Walter was invited to my wedding and why I hadn’t reached out to her during her eviction drama. So let me answer! Surely someone who claims to be a top actress, producer, and director who is selling DVDs everywhere is not evicted! I didn’t feel the need to reach out about gossip.Now let me say this before I end. My Twitter blew up and my phone just about caught on fire when Kenya grabbed my ear. I know when somebody wants a reaction out of me for their own purposes. I know water is free in America, but so many of these girls are thirsty! I’m not willing to risk what I have, what I have worked for, and what I have become for somebody that has been on a 20 year hiatus!”
