‘RHOA’: Nene Leakes Called Kenya Moore’s Child This Nasty Name
Though Season 12 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta has just begun, it looks like things have gone from bad to worse between Nene Leakes and Kenya Moore. Ahead of the season premiere on November 3, 2019 — rumors were buzzing around the internet that the OG RHOA star and the former Miss USA had been at each others’ throats throughout filming.
As we know, after a whirlwind marriage and having her daughter, Brooklyn Daley — Moore has returned to the franchise. Unfortunately, the businesswoman has announced that she and her husband of two years, Marc Daley are separating.
Still, Moore’s marriage troubles are just the tip of the iceberg. Her return to the series has pushed everything off-kilter. Leakes, in particular, is not pleased about it, and she certainly hasn’t been shy about letting Moore know just how unwelcome she is.
Nene Leakes called Kenya Moore’s infant daughter a buffalo
Things were already tense between the women in 2018 when Moore announced she was pregnant with her daughter, Brooklyn. Moore had a very stressful and high-risk pregnancy, but according to her, that did not give Leakes any sense of compassion. During a recent appearance on The Wendy Williams Show, Moore said,
When I had a high-risk pregnancy, that I wanted my entire life, she never once called me. When I did show up, she never checked on my child. She never said, ‘Is everything okay?’ when she learned I wasn’t going to be on the show. She never said, ‘Are you okay girl, do you need anything?’ And then when she did see me eight months pregnant, she called me a monster and said that my child was a buffalo and she was hurling insults.
The real reason Nene Leakes and Kenya Moore are feuding
Since Moore first began to appear on the RHOA in Season 5, she and Leakes have had a strained relationship. Both women have huge personalities, and they often clashed over small things. However, by Season 10, they seemed to have a truce in place. That all crumbled in Season 11 when the newly married Moore announced she would not be on the main cast. Leakes with miffed with Moore’s choice to keep her new life out of the spotlight. Things have only gotten worse since then.
Did Nene Leakes spit on Kenya Moore?
The real horror story that has been circulating about Leakes and Moore this season is a confrontation that involved spitting during the ladies’ girls’ trip to Athens, Greece. Moore confirmed the incident during a November 3, 2019 appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. She revealed,
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.
Nene Leakes tried to interfere with Kenya Moore’s marriage
To further aggravate Moore, it appears that Leakes befriended her estranged husband, Marc Daley. An insider explained to 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.
Yikes, from the name-calling to the spitting incident, there doesn’t seem to be any reconciliation in sight for these two. You can catch up on all the RHOA drama on Sunday evenings at 8 PM ET on Bravo.
