At least one of Kenya Moore’s co-stars thinks there’s some validity to rumors that she fabricated a romantic relationship strictly for the reality TV cameras.
NeNe Leakes, the last remaining original cast member on “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” told Wendy Williams that she’s insulted by Kenya’s phony love story.
“I’ve been a ‘Housewife of Atlanta’ for five seasons, going into my sixth season and everything we do on the show is legit. We’re not scripted. We are real. So, to look at Kenya and Walter [Jackson] and to know they did something that was unethical to our franchise, I feel is awful,” said NeNe.
NeNe has been the most suspicious of Kenya and Walter’s relationship throughout season 5. She’s repeatedly questioned whether the two really have a love connection, and Kenya repeatedly defended their romance.
However, fans of the show know that NeNe had cause to wonder. Shortly after a cast trip to Anguilla, things began to fall apart between Walter and Kenya, who has apparently given up on their love following a somewhat painful conversation aired on the latest episode.
“I would have to say that I think it was a good acting scene. I almost believed them,” NeNe said in reference to the twosome’s last emotional exchange.
NeNe, who said she feels like the mama on the cast, now has a blossoming acting career. But the “New Normal” star said she’s sticking around the Bravo reality series to help ensure its integrity.
“I have to be there to make sure people aren’t coming on there with phony stories,” she said.
As for her own relationship, NeNe and Gregg are already thinking about the type of ceremony they’ll have when they remarry.
“The first time we got married, it was a big wedding, and now that I am the fabulous NeNe Leakes, honey, it will be even bigger,” said NeNe who hinted that the second marriage might be televised.
