Kenya Moore is revealing how she really feels about each and every one of her cast mates on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."
Things may be off to a rocky start for Kenya Moore on "RHOA" but it seems she may be winning some of her co-stars over. She recently told Essence that she believes that she and Cynthia Bailey have a lot in common despite their initial friction on the show.
"Cynthia is more like me than I ever would have thought," said Kenya, advising viewers to tune in to see how their relationship develops. "This is what I will always say: I really appreciate a working woman who wants to have something for herself. "
She added, "Regardless of how I feel about Cynthia as a person, I respect the fact that she is a businesswoman, and she’s using her platform in a great way. She’s helping other young Black girls, and I think that’s a beautiful thing."
"RHOA" fans had high hopes for Kenya’s grand entrance onto the hit Bravo series, but she said she wasn’t really ready for the experience. "I didn’t prepare myself, and that’s the problem," she stated. "I thought I would come to the tapings, and [the producers] would come to my house, and we would have a couple of scenes with the girls, and we would get together, and it would be a kumbaya moment. That is not what it was."
The beauty queen mused that perhaps it was her face that got her in the most trouble with her cast mates. "You can always tell what I’m thinking by looking at me, and that got me in trouble, especially when something was said or done to really insult me as a person," she said.
But when asked how she feels about each of the ladies, Kenya mostly had nice things to say.
"[Nene Leakes is] hilarious. She is so naturally funny, and so entertaining. Just the sound of her voice makes you laugh," said Kenya, who also summed up Cynthia Bailey in one word. "Beautiful. Not only a stunningly beautiful woman, but she also has a good spirit."
Kenya also thinks Kandi Burruss is as hot as her music! "Sexy," Kenya described. "Kandi owns her sexuality, and there’s a power in that. She’s a smart girl, and I think that’s a great mixture."
Then there’s Kim Zlociak, who will be leaving the show next week. Kenya assessed, "White chocolate. She has got a really fiery personality. She has this no-holds barred way of thinking about life, and I think she’s interesting."
The former Miss USA wasn’t quite so complimentary with Phaedra Parks, however. "Honestly, the first word that came to mind was con artist," Kenya stated. "She can get you to believe anything she wants just by spinning a story. She knows how to spin a story."
And to Kenya, Porsha Stewart is simply "forgettable."
