The Real Housewives of Atlanta has returned for Season 12 — and the ladies have brought the drama back with them. Before the season even premiered, there were rumors that things were volatile behind the scenes between two of the ladies, in particular. An original member of the RHOA franchise, Nene Leakes has returned to the spotlight this season and so has Kenya Moore. Moore took some time away from the series during her marriage and when she had her daughter, Brooklyn.
It looks like the return of both of these women has sent the entire franchise into a tizzy because they simply cannot get along. This season the ladies went on a trip to Athens, Greece. Unfortunately, it was anything but a relaxing vacation. Rumors swirled that Leakes and Moore made the getaway especially tense.
Now that taping has been completed and there was yet another heated moment during the final episode which was filmed in Atlanta at the end of October, we know more about what we can expect to see in during upcoming episodes.
Nene Leakes struck up a relationship with Kenya Moore’s estranged husband, Marc Daley
Kenya Moore and her husband, Marc Daley married after a whirlwind romance in 2017. The former Miss USA gave birth to her adorable baby girl in November 2018. Sadly the couple recently announced that they are separating. Unfortunately, the issues between the couple didn’t stop Leakes from befriending Daley and interfering with his marriage to Moore. An insider told Bossip,
Kenya confronted NeNe after hearing that she’d been talking to Marc behind her back. Things escalated quickly, with NeNe telling Kenya that Marc said he ‘doesn’t even like’ her. NeNe continued to throw out different things she and Gregg [Leakes] were allegedly told by Marc as their fight got more intense. NeNe began to make a ‘hocking’ sound as if she was preparing to spit in Kenya’s direction.
Nene Leakes tried to spit on Kenya Moore
There is nothing more horrific or disrespectful that someone trying to spit on you. However, that’s exactly what Leakes attempted to do to Moore. This incident went down during their Athens getaway and Moore has since confirmed what occurred. During an appearing on Watch What Happens Live, Moore told Andy Cohen that she no longer has any sort of relationship with Leakes. She explained,
I think she’s pretty much dead to me. When someone tries to spit on you, I think they’re not ever going to be friends with you. So that’s pretty much done.
Kenya Moore and Nene Leakes were almost in a physical altercation in Toronto
The spitting incident was the final straw between the women. As we explained–things between the ladies had become increasingly strained in the past few months. In addition to their trip to Athens–the RHOA cast also took a trip to Toronto, Canada this season. That was a less than blissful experience as well.
Bossip is reporting, “NeNe and Kenya also had an altercation that nearly turned physical during the cast trip to Toronto.” From the spitting to interfering with her marriage –Moore isn’t about to let any of this go either. When Cohen asked her, “When was the last time you saw Shereé and Phaedra?” Moore retorted, “Probably the last time Nene saw her hairline.”
