After a pretty rough introductory season, Kenya Moore is hoping “Real Housewives of Atlanta” viewers will learn more about her this time around and like what they see.
“I think that this season you’ll get to see more sides of me. I think I was a one-dimensional person last season. I think you’ll get to know me a little bit better and hopefully like me a little bit more,” she told “Access Hollywood,” admitting that she’s often described as the show’s villain.
“I’m okay with it because I know that’s not who I am,” she explained.
Last season, Kenya clashed with a few of her co-stars, most notably Phaedra Parks, but she said her cast members’ reactions to her were unexpected.
“I got my feelings hurt a lot last season. I didn’t know where the angst was coming from. I didn’t know what I was doing wrong. Why were these women attacking me?” she said.
Fans of the show might remember that in the season 5 premiere, Kenya got off to a rocky start with Cynthia Bailey, but the two eventually forged a cordial relationship. Despite being able to get along with Cynthia and NeNe Leakes, Kenya said she felt the ladies were all against her.
“It was nothing like what I thought it would be. I’m still thinking about last season,” she said, admitting that she felt ganged up on.
“I’m actually really nice to people and then they want to pick a fight with me, but when they pick a fight with me, they’ll never win. I always win fights,” she said. “In a situation, if I feel I’m right, I’m going to say it. If I think you’re wrong, I’m going to say it.”
Who came out on top during last year’s disagreements is subject to debate, and it seems season 6 may follow suit.
Although they were able to get along in season 5, Kenya has her opinions about why she and NeNe seem to bump heads in season 6.
“She was off in Hollywood and she had her other projects going,” said Kenya who said NeNe’s attitude toward her has changed. “People make a problem with you because they want to have a problem with you.”
NeNe has questioned Kenya’s authenticity in the past, especially after rumors about her fake TV romance surfaced.
Kenya, who questioned whether NeNe still wears the Queen Bee crown, said she’s not going on the attack, but she will defend herself when her co-stars strike the first blow.
“I’m a firecracker when lit. As long as you don’t light that match, I’m fine,” she said.
