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.

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.”

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!

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!

He’s already gone on the radio to tell the truth about he and Kenya Moore’s fake, done-for-TV relationship. Now Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Walter Jackson is asking Bravo exec Andy Cohen to let him spill the beans on TV.
Taking to Twitter, Jackson reached out to Cohen, who’s also the executive producer of the Real Housewives franchise, if he could go on his show Watch What Happens: Live to give some secrets. “Hi @BravoAndy, I am willing to come on your show,” he tweeted, “and prove that we hadn’t seen or talked to each other until the show started taping.”
If telling his side wasn’t enough, Jackson has also made sure he’s been spotted out on dates. He was recently spotted at an Atlanta hot spot and obliging every photo opportunity with a female in the joint. But, at this point, we all know the deal… And if Cohen doesn’t want this perceived fakeness infecting his hit reality series, Jackson should have his day on Bravo to, hmm, keep it real.
