That Was You!? Reality Stars We Didn’t Realize Starred In Some Of Our Favorite Throwback Music Videos
Before the following individuals were known for snatching weaves, being called bullies and giving folks the creep eye, they were just trying to get their bills paid by doing music videos. But who knew they were popping up in some of our favorite music videos? Here are 10 reality stars who we never realized were in some of these popular music videos from back in the day.
Claudia Jordan In “Me And Those Dreamin’ Eyes Of Mine” By D’Angelo
Before her days flipping open briefcases for the game show “Deal or No Deal,” and waaaaay before she was made a regular on “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” Jordan had the awesome opportunity to saunter around D’Angelo in his video for one of our favorite songs from the Brown Sugar album, “Me And Those Dreamin’ Eyes Of Mine.”
Fans of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” will not have to wait until November 9th to get a glimpse of their favorite divas and their drama. RHOA stars Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams are taking shots at each other again.
In an interview with Enstarz Kenya was asked about her thoughts on Porsha’s demotion. The reality star stated,
“Um, honestly I don’t have any thoughts about it.” Then she added, “It’s just that I’ve made people relevant on this show for negative occurrences and I’m just not doing that any more. I think people need to stand on their own two feet and not ride my coattails, and you see when they don’t ride my coattails, they don’t get very far.”
Of course Porsha had some of her own shade to share when she heard about Kenya’s comments. Porsha clapped back at Kenya on her Dish Nation show with,
“She can’t be talking about me. I mean….you’d have to be doing something for somebody to ride your coattail right? You’ve got to be on the way to progression and being successful for somebody to ride your coattail. I thought. Is that not what that means? I’m just sayin….”
These two ladies obviously DO NOT like each other. Whose ready to see how things play this season?
“I Don’t Start Trouble”: Kenya Moore On Her Issues With Tamar Braxton And Why Season 7 Of RHOA Will Be One Of “Redemption” For Her
Ever since she joined “Real Housewives of Atlanta” in season five, Kenya Moore has gone from celebrated Miss USA to mean girl in the eyes of many. But according to Moore, who spilled some tea with our friends over at Enstarz, season seven of the reality show will be one of redemption for her. The truth will come to light about a lot of people and their lies, and she says that she won’t be involved in a lot of negative drama this season. Will we be seeing a new Kenya Moore? She speaks on that, as well as why she is “disappointed” with Tamar Braxton in her chat with Enstarz. Here are the tidbits of that interview that stood out:
How She’s Feeling About Season Seven:
I am very excited. This season is going to be a great season for me. It’s the season of redemption; a lot of things will come to light that I feel will be redemptive for me. I’m just excited for people to not question the lies that were told by many people on the show, and now we’ll all get to see what the real truth is.
I’m cordial with all of the women and some of them are really my friends on and off-camera. I think you’ll be able to see who those people are when you watch the show as well.
Turning A New Corner In Season 7:
Well, it’s not necessarily a new corner. It’s just that I’ve made people relevant on this show for negative occurrences and I’m just not doing that any more. I think people need to stand on their own two feet and not ride my coattails, and you see when they don’t ride my coattails, they don’t get very far.
The Biggest Misconception About Her:
I’d see sometimes, early on, that I was being called a “mean girl.” I think it’s very clear that I don’t start trouble, trouble tries to find me and I sort of end arguments. I don’t start them. I think that the viewers have clearly seen that from season one to two. The other thing is about this whole going after someone’s man or things like that… I’ve never been interested in anyone’s man, husband, boyfriend and I’m actually that girl you want to have around if you have a boyfriend or a man or a husband, because I’m so not interested. I am the one, that if they come to me I send them back home basically saying, “You know you have no chance over here.” I’m a real girl’s girl. I love to support other women. I love beautiful women. I love confident women. Throughout my years of being a personality, I think that speaks for itself about me in terms of relationships with my boyfriends who have all been very quiet about me. I’ve never had a reputation in that regard.
If She Has Any Regrets About Past Behavior:
In life, I just don’t live with any regrets. I think everything is a teaching moment. It’s a show, I don’t have control over editing. I don’t have control over what other people say about me and I don’t have control over the fans. All I would hope for is that people can watch intelligently and decipher who I am for me versus what is being portrayed on a show. Which is only a half-hour a day and five months, and it’s edited. I think you just have to get to know me by looking at my history and looking at my intentions, and not looking at things that are manipulated such as what other people would like you to believe based on what they say about you.
The Real Deal When It Comes To Her Issues With Tamar And Being Called “Thirsty”:
I was on her show, “The Real” last week, and we were all very pleasant to one another and I think that was the only time I’ve met her in person and there was a very pleasant exchange. So, to see her say that on Bravo, which is my family and that’s my home… So you’re going to come into my house and disrespect me? I couldn’t just stay quiet about that. If it was someone else, I would just ignore it like I always do. But you don’t get to come into my house and disrespect me. I was disappointed by her but I will always be nice to her. And I will continue to be nice to her because that’s just who I am. But sometimes, when people see you shining–again, she was in my house so maybe she felt some type of way about that.
You can check out Moore’s full interview with Enstarz here. What do you think about what she had to say?
While visiting with Andy Cohen at “Watch What Happens Live,” Tamar was asked a question from a viewer calling in about what she thought of Kenya Moore’s attempt at a singing career (remember “Gone With The Wind Fabulous”?), and which RHOA cast member is her favorite. While Braxton tried her best to avoid throwing shade, Moore still ended up feeling some type of way about her comments.
Here’s what Braxton had to say:
“She sings? No shade! No shade! ‘Twirl, twirl! That’s the record?’ Yeah, I heard that in the club one time. I didn’t know that was a serious record. No shade!
I can’t lie, she’s not my favorite. My favorite is NeNe. She’s a great girl and we had drinks like a week and a half ago. I swear that every Atlanta reality star was at the bar for some odd reason. Oh my God, it was a scene with a gangster lean, honey. I don’t know, something about the thirst of it all, you know? She’s a pretty girl, but I don’t know, the pageant thing kind of reeks.”
Moore caught wind of her comments and took to Twitter to respond:
This isn’t the first time Tamar Braxton has spoken about Moore and her antics. Earlier in the year, when speaking on the Russ Parr Morning Show, she called Moore out because of her behavior with Apollo Nida.
“I do think there were several ratchet moments, but the one that sticks out to me the most was Ms. Kenya. I’m not talking about Kenya per se, but just any woman who feels like it’s OK to have somebody’s husband and have a conversation with them one-on-one. And try to be friends with him and not the wife. I’m sorry. I feel like I have to read all the Kenyas of the world who just be trying it and then come to the face of the wife and be like, ‘You need to ask him. I think he need to speak for himself,’ No ho! I’ma speak for you – me and him! That’s my man. I don’t like that stuff. You know, I’m real protective of my Teddy Ruxpin. And I wish somebody would try me like that! I just feel like she tried Phaedra like that because she felt like she could. Now she wouldn’t try NeNe like that. See what I’m trying to say?”
Check out Braxton’s conversation with Andy Cohen below and you let us know what you think:
Celebrities are just like everyday people, and if you talk crazy about them, they just might talk crazy about you in response. It happens. But the following people on this list are known for staying involved in public squabbles with both famous and everyday individuals. Either they enjoy it or their mouths continuously get them into trouble. You decide.
From drama with “Real Housewives of Atlanta” co-stars NeNe Leakes, Phaedra Parks and Porsha Williams, to going head-to-head with Vivica A. Fox, Kenya Moore has no problem with being in the center of drama. In fact, being known for petty antics has helped her bank account increase substantially, so whether she’s texting someone else’s man or being accused of stealing someone’s phone, Moore is happy to create chaos.
Update 2:20 p.m.: Kordell has also responded to rumors that he’s seeing Kenya Moore.
“There is a beautiful lady who I am very interested in,” Kordell told HipHollywood, “however, it is not Kenya Moore.”
Speaking of rumors that came completely out of left field, it appears that there has also been talk of a secret romance between Kenya Moore and Kordell Stewart. The former pageant queen recently took to Twitter to shut down the whispers—not that we’re really sure people were believing them in the first place.

As it turns out, the rumors began with a report published to MTO, which claimed that the two hit it off at the opening of Peter and Kordell’s new sports bar Sports One. Although there were plenty of instances where Kenya showed a little too much interest in Porsha’s marriage and divorce from Kordell, we never thought that she was interested in him romantically. If anything, her interest in Porsha’s misery was more than likely fueled by her strong dislike for her.
The new season of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” has already started filming, and after the dust settled from the explosive season six reunion earlier this year, friendships ended, new friendships were formed, and of course, new cast members were added.
The ladies are allegedly filming their big girls getaway in Puerto Rico right now, and as they share shots from their big trip, it’s clear that the women have made new cliques and split from one another. Now that NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey’s relationship is kaput, Leakes is spending time and getting close to Phaedra Parks, Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss (the latter of which she was at odds with during the reunion over comments about Mama Joyce). As for Bailey, she’s become quite close with Kenya Moore (which I’m sure is exactly what Moore wanted to get under Leakes’ skin), and new cast mates Claudia Jordan and Demetria McKinney seem to be flocking to them. No more ‘Talls vs. Smalls’ it seems.
It’s really crazy to see Leakes and Bailey at odds. In a recent chat with us, Leakes said she was a good friend to Bailey and they’ll handle settle everything during season seven.
“Cynthia I honestly had a real friendship with her. I don’t know where all this is coming from. But it was sorted out on season 7 for all of your guys to see. But I must say I feel like I’m a great friend to everybody who’s really been a friend in my life.”
Check out the budding “friendships” below.
Sometimes too much of anything can drive even the most die-hard fan crazy. Too many celebrities haven’t realized that taking a break from the spotlight can actually be healthy for their career! But many of them, fearful of becoming irrelevant at any given moment, think that we still want more. Well, we want to encourage these 14 celebs to sit down somewhere for a while and give themselves, and us, a break!
Kenya Moore appears to have always been quite fond of Wendy Williams. However, it seems that she has a bit more of an incentive to adore the outspoken television personality these days: Porsha Stewart and NeNe Leakes’ beef with Wendy. Kenya was recently asked what she thinks of NeNe’s feud with Wendy and unsurprisingly, she repped #TeamWendy loudly and proudly.
“What’s your opinion on the Nene and Wendy beef?” one fan questioned.
“It’s petty. @WendyWilliams speaks her mind that’s why ppl watch,” Kenya responded.
“#teamwendy some people can’t take criticism it’s really not that serious. The truth hurts it u don’t have to believe it,” she continued.
Earlier this week, NeNe spoke to us about her beef with Wendy and the “Glee” star accused her former friend of being extremely harsh towards Black women on her show.
“She’s not only negative toward people, she is negative toward Black girls,” said NeNe. “And you’re a Black woman sitting up here. Now, I have a feeling why she’s saying it, but I just want people to know it was not about my Birkin bag, my bag was the last straw for me. She put on this sabotaging campaign for a very long time. So I wanted to do an open letter and just said to her ‘What did I do to you?!’ Because if I did anything to you, you need to tell me.”
NeNe went on to express that Wendy’s entire empire was built on being negative.
“We all know that Wendy has been very negative towards a lot people in the industry. That’s basically how she built her career. That’s fine with me. No tea and no shade. But the deal is I supported Wendy, I was supportive of Wendy.”
“All of a sudden it’s like Wendy flipped and went on some type of sabotaging campaign,” she continued. “Every time she would put my picture up, she said something negative about me. I don’t watch her show anymore because she has been so negative toward people.”

It’s a generally understood and accepted fact that Real “Housewife,” Kenya Moore has a flair for the dramatic. She spends her life doing the utmost. And it’s gotten her into a bit of trouble on more than one occasion. Yet she never seems to learn.
This past weekend, the reality TV star was participating in some type of competitive event at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Other Real Housewives from the other franchises were also in attendance where they teamed up with “high rollers” for a series of games they performed in front of a large audience.
In one of the games, the housewives were supposed to teach the high rollers how to work a catwalk. It seems like Kenya would be the perfect person for this. But it wasn’t long before she hit the floor and not with a dance step.
Take a look at the video below.
What we will say about Kenya though, she played it off pretty well and recovered like she starring in a sultry music video.
You can’t keep Kenya down.
