The head Bravo exec in charge has spoken. Andy Cohen, creator of The Real Housewives franchise, host of Ask Andy and Watch What Happens Live has weighed in on The Real Housewives Atlanta reunion show cat fight between Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams.

On the latest episode of Ask Andy, Cohen told his audience, “There was altercation that took place between Kenya and Porsha. They stood up…I think I stood up pretty quickly. It was such a flash and it started to escalate,” he recounted. “I was trying to prevent it, and a couple of other people jumped in too. To me, it came out of nowhere.”

The brawl has been amply reported on and most viewers can’t wait to get a gander at it because it should be ratings hit. But Cohen seems disgusted by the whole scene.

“The other women felt Kenya provoked her a bit… I was so shocked and surprised.” Cohen continued. “I don’t want that to happen. I think its gross. And I think it’s just totally inappropriate. It’s wrong. It’s not entertaining. It’s just bad.”

An eyewitness to the fight told Radar, “Kenya bought sex toys to the reunion to taunt Porsha about Kordell’s sexuality and she couldn’t take it anymore…Porsha was sick of her implying that she was Kordell’s beard…”

Ding, ding… alright y’all, let’s get ready to rumble!

Porsha Stewart’s Fight With Kenya Moore Detailed in 911 Call

The blogosphere is still abuzz with news of the feud between Real Housewives of Atlantas’s Kenya Moore and Porsha Stewart during the hit reality’s show reunion special. But now it seems there may be more to the story than audiences initially thought.

Exactly 36 hours after the brawl news hit, Stewart’s new single, “Flatline” was released on iTunes. And Porsha was all over Twitter promoting the new track. “My single #Flatline on iTunes Now! Link in my bio,” Stewart tweeted with a link to the song. “Thank you all for being so supportive.”

Moore has remained mum on the topic and still insists no dispute between she and Stewart ever took place.“One thing you will NEVER see me do is fight,” Kenya tweeted, “Your brain and tongue are your most powerful weapons.”


So was this brouhaha all a publicity stunt? The truth will never be known. But recently, the 911 tape of Kenya making the call to police, following the brawl, was released. But, still, that means nothing. However, it’s safe to assume with all this hype the reunion special should grab huge rating for RHOA franchise, averages 4 million viewers a week.


Cha-ching! Go on girls!

Kenya Moore Blasts Porsha Stewart for her Underground Railroad Confusion

Anyone who doubted Kenya Moore’s ability to the be the voice of reason on the Real Housewives of Atlanta missed the reality’s star comments on her costar Porsha Stewart’s take on the historical Underground Railroad.

Here’s a recap for those of viewers of the Bravo reality series who may be living under a rock: the Georgia Peach ladies were on a Freedom Trail tour in Savannah, when Stewart blurted out that she thought the Underground Railroad was an actual train.

When the tour guide showed the group  ventilation holes in a church floor and explained how, “people crawled under to escape slavery,” Porsha’s reply was confusion personified. “There has to be an opening for the railroad at some point,” Stewart said. “Somebody is driving the train. It’s not electric like what we have now.”

Moore lit into her co-star via her Bravo blog. “When Porsha was perplexed at how the train operated or ‘who went down there first to make room because they didn’t have electric trains like we do now,’ I became incensed…” Kenya said. “It was crystal clear that Porsha did not know that the Underground Railroad was not a literal train!”

But the former beauty queen didn’t just stop there. She continued, “It’s easy to laugh and call her dumb, but the reality is even more painful – WE have failed her. Our educational system has failed her, anyone who coddled her or encouraged her to focus on her makeup, weave, and shoes to find a man to take care of her rather than her education has failed her,” Moore said. “Anyone laughing at this gross ignorance has failed her.”

Finally, Moore made reference to Stewart’s late grandfather Hosea Williams, a prominent Civil Rights activist in Atlanta when she said, “Porsha is an embarrassment to her grandfather, his legacy, her family and most importantly, herself.”

Wow!

Kenya Moore Blasts Brandi Grandville for Racist Statement

Call it the verbal battle of reality housewives. Following a perceived racist comment from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Brandi Grandville about Black folks not swimming Kenya Moore fired back with comments of her own.

In a nutshell, the ladies of RHBH were sitting poolside when Joyce Giraud de Ohoven
admitted she couldn’t swim. Upon hearing this, Brandi shot back: “You’re a Black person.” Although her buddies looked appalled at the statement, she later explained that she was talking about Black women and how they avoid swimming due to weaves.

But Kenya wasn’t having it, taking to Twitter to voice her feelings. “Not all Black women wear hair weaves,” she tweeted. “Half the women on RHOBH are wearing fake hair. Brandi cannot be more ignorant.”

Kenya did acknowledge that Brandi, being Puerto Rican, admits to being part Black herself, which does take the sting out of what she said. We’re glad the two have worked things out because we can’t have disunity amongst the Real Housewives’ franchise.  Yeah, right — that’s what built the brand.

The drama of Real Housewives of Atlanta heats up with an alleged sexting scandal as Kenya Moore yells foul on Phaedra’s hubby Apollo Nida.

Seems Apollo Nida claims Kenya had sexted him last year while they were both in Los Angeles, even going so far as saying Moore suggested they also meet for a hook-up. After denying that she ever did such a thing, Kenya says she thinks he spun the whole lie just for attention on the show. While Apolla denies anything ever happened between the two, on this week’s RHOA she said: Kenya “wanted to f***, she wanted to have sex in L.A.”

Kenya has admitted the two texted each other while in the City of Angels, but said their was nothing sexual about the exchange. Talking to TMZ, she even provided screen shots of the supposed exchange. Sge added she wants “to put an end to these false and defaming speculations and judgments.”

Apollo has yet to respond.

Look out, NeNe. Looks like Kenya Moore might be the next rich b***** of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. An Inside source told Us Magazine that the reality TV star will not only be returning for the hit show’s sixth season, but the former beauty queen will be getting a humongous raise.

According to the insider, Ms. Moore will allegedly receive $600,000 for next season, a substantial raise for her contribution to the show’s success. She will also allegedly receive additional bonuses based on ratings. With the reported raise, Moore will join the top tier stars of the show in pay. “NeNe [Leakes], Kim [Zolciak] and Kandi [Burruss] make $800,000 a season but they can make more for doing certain special things, like Kim taking off her wig,” another source previously mentioned. “Phaedra and Porsha make $50,000 per season.”

For anyone who watches the show, after Moore debuted on RHOA last season she immediately became a hit by getting on the ladies’ bad side. And with a fatter wallet (and a substantial fan base) because of her cray cray ways, look out for the Moore tornado to get turned up.

Ex-Landlord Calls Cops on Kenya Moore

The Kenya Moore eviction saga continues. In this chapter, The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s star ex-landlord Conya Dillon Weems called the cops on the former beauty queen. The latest beef: Moore had Bravo cameras on the property while she was vacating the premises.

It’s believed that the five unidentified men were filming Moore’s exodus for upcoming episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. An onlooker added, “The landlord called the police because Kenya should not be on the property, nor did she give permission for anyone to be filming.”

This is the second time in the past 72 hours that the po po was called to the $3,999 a month, six-bedroom Roswell property. Moore voluntarily left the palatial spread this week after Weems filed papers to evict her from the home for not paying her May rent. Kenya allegedly owed $848 in past late fees and utility bills plus a whopping $4,500 in late fees and penalties.

But there is still a war of words between the two ladies. Kenya tweeted this message on Thursday, “I WON my eviction case it was vacated! We proved I didn’t owe any late rent. Thanks for all your support! Moving on and up.” But Weems told Radar, “She lied about renting the home and about her boyfriend amongst other things. She begged me to lease my home and live a pretend lifestyle she couldn’t afford. She will get hers in the end no doubt … I don’t live a fake life.”

Meow!

Kenya Moore Apologizes for Not Attending NeNe’s Wedding

Kenya Moore may come off as a crazy, self-obsessed former beauty queen, but recently showed she does have a heart. During a recent interview with TheGrio.com, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star talked about why did not attend NeNe Leakes recent wedding.

NeNe re-married her ex-husband Gregg Leakes last month. The two had a lavish Atlanta ceremony attended by 400 guests including RHOA co-stars Cythia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, Jennifer Williams, Kim Zolciak, and Porsha Stewart. While an invitation was extended to Kenya, she didn’t attend, but had a good reason for not being there.

“I didn’t go to NeNe’s wedding,” Moore confessed, “I was in Africa at the time.” Knowing her Real Housewives sistren, she also noted: “I don’t think she’s too happy about that.”

Not to worry, though. Kenya admitted to doing what she barely (if ever) does on the show: say sorry. “I have apologized to her. We actually were on the same flight to L.A. last week.”

Aaaah, that’s extremely nice of Kenya. But don’t think you’ve heard the last of this. This is reality TV… and that genre is made for drama. Expect this little mishap to make its way onto the small screen next season. NeNe will make sure of this!

TV audiences who’ve witnessed Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore in action knows she’s a fighter. Now, her landlord is about to get a taste of Hurricane Kenya firsthand. The former beauty queen’s landlord Conya Weems-Dillon is currently suing Moore for breaking terms of her lease agreement and stiffing out her for $848 dollars for one month’s rent.

But the RHOA star is firing back with a lawsuit too. Moore is countersuing for wrongful eviction plus slander and emotional distress. Kenya also added that she’s paid her $3,999 monthly rent in full for May and June on her six-bedroom and six-bathroom residence and that her landlord often enters her house without notice. Moore believes Dillon only made up the eviction story to sell a story to the tabloids and wreck her reputation.

Well the landlord got her media story in the press, but with Kenya on her heels she also had better watch her back.  For real!

Kenya Moore Responds to Phaedra Parks’ Accusations That She Propositioned Her Hubby Apollo

In the Real Housewives of Atlanta chronicles, the battle between Phaedra Parks and Kenya Moore over Mr. Apollo heats up. After Phaedra accused Kenya of propositioning her hunky hubby via text, Ms. Moore took to her blog to respond.

To the accusations of impropriety, Moore wrote: “Apollo and I had initially communicated via group text and emails when collaborating on the workout video. We were amiable to one another even after the deal fell through and remained cordial.Despite his desperate outburst, neither of us acted inappropriately.”

Even though Apollo also claimed she propositioned him via smartphone, Moore wrote she felt he had been nudged to say so by his wife. “It was just as shocking for me to hear him make accusations,” she wrote, “that I, in effect, propositioned him. So shocking that I had to laugh at just how contrived and rehearsed it was. Beyond a shadow of a doubt, I’m certain Apollo was coached by Phaedra.”

Then Kenya turned her sites on Phaedra who she called a backstabber and a shady business person…. Nice to see the love on RHOA is at an all-time high and will be sure to continue into the next season!
