There’s a reason Kenya Moore has been making comments about Porsha Stewart “twerking” for a living.
Porsha, the self-proclaimed princess who said she’s always “lived well,” hasn’t just lived off of her family’s legacy and wealth, as her nemesis Kenya initially suggested.
In her 20s, Porsha did earn her own by working as what some would call a “video vixen.” The reality star was featured in the rap video for a song called “Some Cut” and popped up in the 2005 “pin-up” calendar for Atlanta Dymes.
“We actually shot Porsha back in the day for one of our calendar projects…nice girl,” an Atlanta Dymes affiliate told StraightFromtheA.com.
While using what you have to legally make some cash is no big deal, Porsha speaks a lot about her grandfather, civil rights legend Hosea Williams, and her family legacy. She accused Kenya of disrespecting that legacy when Kenya left Porsha’s charity event in a huff, but some scoff at the idea of Porsha being so concerned about the family name.
“Protecting her grandfathers legacy? Girl bye,” wrote one commenter.
Kenya, who felt that Porsha disrespected her by belittling her 1993 Miss USA reign, said the Atlanta socialite is doing more to wreck her family’s name than Kenya has.
“I think she’s kinda single-handedly ruining her grandfather’s legacy,” Kenya told “Wendy Williams” before delivering the line: “Some people work for a living and some people ‘twerk’ for a living.”
It can be assumed that Kenya was referring to the music video featuring Porsha, since both women have modeled bikini swimsuits that revealed similar amounts of skin.
Porsha has yet to directly respond to Kenya’s “twerk” comment, but she did call for an end to the “crabs in a barrel” mentality in her most recent BravoTV.com blog.
“Let’s celebrate our sisters instead [of] trying to bring others down. Often we will find that while we are uplifting others, we will also be uplifted,” she wrote.
