‘RHOA’ Star Kenya Moore Says NeNe Leakes Is ‘Threatened’ By Her and Insists They Will Never ‘Be Friends’

It seems as though Kenya Moore and NeNe Leakes still aren’t on the best of terms. The Real Housewives of Atlanta stars’ strenuous relationship dates back a few years and the two women continue to butt heads.

While it is very clear that these two are far from making amends, Moore recently confirmed that her relationship with Leakes is way beyond repair.

Moore is certain Leakes is ‘bothered’ by her presence

Many fans can agree that one of the most notable feuds within the Real Housewives franchise is Kenya Moore and NeNe Leakes’ ongoing beef.

The reality stars have been at each other’s throats for the past few seasons and it looks as though their feud isn’t lightening up anytime soon.

During a recent interview with Bravo Insider, Moore opened up about her continuous strained relationship with Leakes.

While the former beauty queen isn’t fazed by her co-star’s ill-feelings toward her, Moore is certain that Leakes is just ‘threatened’ by her.

“The mere presence of me makes her lose control over herself. I mean, she comes undone. Honey, she comes undone,” Moore said.

“I still don’t know why but she is threatened and bothered and she doesn’t want me anywhere around,” she continued. “I don’t like being in the middle of anyone’s drama, but it just seems like NeNe makes an issue for me to have any friends. She has some major issues and I think she really needs to seek counseling for that. A lot of counseling.”

Although Moore and Leakes have tried to be friends in the past, it soon became evident that they were just two people who couldn’t see eye to eye.

Moore is certain that she could possibly bury the hatchet and try to get along with Leakes, but any chance of being friends again is now out the window.

“I think I can be cordial with NeNe. I think I can be friendly, but will I ever be friends with her, absolutely not,” she said. “I’ve seen too many things, I know too many things and she is not for me.”

Moore and Leakes have a long history of feuding

When it comes to Moore and Leakes, it seems as though their feud gets more intense with each passing season.

Ever since Moore joined the show during Season 5 in 2012, the two women have had a hard time seeing eye to eye and their drama continues to escalate.

In the past, the reality stars have gotten into huge fights that have quickly spun out of control.

According to Radar Online, Moore and Leakes recently had an intense blowout while filming Season 12 of RHOA.

It was reported that the huge brawl was a result of Leakes’ criticism over Moore’s recent split from husband, Marc Daly.

Although Moore and Daly confirmed that they were ending their marriage in September, Leakes soon confronted her co-star about the divorce right in the middle of filming.

“NeNe ripped into Kenya, saying, ‘How are you divorcing a man that you didn’t marry,” a source shared with the outlet.

This caused Moore to clap back at Leakes, which turned into a full blown screaming match.

While the reality stars have had their differences in the past, Moore’s marriage has been at the center of their ongoing issues recently.

After Moore refused to disclose the name of her husband once they was married, Leakes become even more suspicious of her co-star.

“NeNe has been suspicious of Kenya for years, starting when she got secretly married and wouldn’t tell anyone the name of her husband,” the source said. “Now that they’re splitting up, she’s calling Kenya out for being so thirsty.”

Now that Moore and her husband have split, there is no telling how her strained relationship with Leakes will play out?
