‘RHOA’: As Feud Rages On, Does Nene Leakes Want Kenya Moore Fired?
Nene Leakes and Kenya Moore have been feuding on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Both Bravo stars have taken jabs at each other and don’t seem to find common ground. Throughout season 12 they’ve been viciously attacking each other and calling each other names. However, despite their ongoing drama, Leakes seems to respect Moore’s place on the reality series.
Does Nene Leakes want Kenya Moore gone?
Social media rages every time there’s a confrontation between Leakes and Moore. Some fans are Team Leakes and others are Team Moore. There’s a division among the RHOA fandom and despite Leakes not liking Moore, she knows she’s good for the show. Even though most people think that Leakes would want to have Moore fired, that’s not the case at all.
“Whether I like her or not … she’s controversial, she’s the craziest person I know — that girl ain’t got no sense,” Leakes said on The Breakfast Club, via Reality Blurb. “[But] she’s perfect for the show. She’ll do things and say things that nobody else will do or say. She needs to be here.”
Don’t expect a Leakes and Moore reconciliation soon though as the Glee alum has come to terms that they just don’t get along.
“I don’t see us ever resolving anything. Listen, when you’re on a show like this there are several different personalities. There’re six girls. Everyone needs to play their position and ride in their lane,” Leakes explained. “The problem is, people want to crossover into your lane. This is my lane. You can’t get over here! Stay over there. Be good at what you’re good at. Don’t worry about what I’m doing over here.”
Nene Leakes name drops ‘RHOA’ star she wants out
Weeks ago, Leakes named one of her current co-stars that she would want out of the show. Although the “Come and Get This Hunni” hitmaker thinks the RHOA cast is perfect, there’s one person that she feels is not pulling in their weight.
“We have a great cast right now except for one person, I think,” Leakes told Entertainment Tonight. “I think only one person on this cast doesn’t seem to have carried any weight this season. And I think that’s very obvious who that person is, and I don’t think they actually sit in the cast that well.”
Leakes was referring to Eva Marcille, who was pregnant throughout season 12. Her appearances, while the cast was away on trips, were limited to video calls as she was not able to travel to her pregnancy.
“I don’t feel like Eva brings that much to the cast,” Leakes added. “I’m just being honest. It’s really like, when you look at a show like, everybody — like the whole cast — is away, and you don’t miss the person at all, it’s sort of like, we didn’t even know you were here, you know? And all season, doing a lot of scenes from FaceTime, that’s been the last couple of seasons … So, If I had to change, I would change her.”
The cast for RHOA Season 13 has not been established and Bravo should be making their decisions in the coming weeks.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta ends season 12 with Part 3 of the reunion on Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
