AceShowbiz - Kenya Moore has accused NeNe Leakes of being fake. During the third part of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" reunion, the former Miss USA found herself being grilled about her ongoing disputes with her castmate, forcing her to get candid about why she appeared "unwilling" to accept the latter's extended olive branch.
In the Sunday, May 24 edition, host Andy Cohen pointed out to Kenya that NeNe tried to talk to her at two different occasions, at the bowling event and during a dinner in Greece, without avail. When asked to clarify, the 49-year-old said, "Because I know it was all fake and phony because of our history. And I can see a fake a mile away. So why should I accept an olive branch if it's covered in poison ivy?"
During the chat, Kenya was also asked if she reached out to NeNe when her husband Gregg was battling cancer. Though Marlo Hampton claimed the actress did not do so, Kenya insisted that she did. "I did. Absolutely, and I have the text messages to prove it," she claimed.
"The Celebrity Apprentice" alum went on to elaborate, "I have the missed phone calls to prove it. She never asked me about myself [during my difficult pregnancy]. And I look at all of that, and I just said, 'You know what. This lady is not for me.' "
When Andy asked Kandi Burruss and Cynthia Bailey what initiated the feud between Kenya and NeNe, Kandi responded by admitting, "Honestly, I don't know anymore." She added, "They've been arguing for so long that I'm not sure where it all started." Cynthia shared similar sentiment as she stated, "I'm not sure either."
The former model, however, did point out, "I do know that when we started filming this season, Nene was very interested in meeting up with Kenya. Maybe she was trying to make amends with or whatever her reasons, but I do know that Nene wanted to meet up with Kenya."
Elsewhere during the reunion, Gail "Yovanna" Momplaisir made an appearance to address the "#SnakeGate." Accusing NeNe of being the mastermind behind the secret taping of Cynthia's private conversation, Gail said, "I'm here to clear my name. Not only did she ask me to record Ms. Cynthia Bailey, but she told me she wanted me to record every single body that's sitting right here."
"She wanted proof that everybody else is equally talking s**t about her the way she talks s**t about everybody else," Gail elaborated. She additionally spilled that Nene has sent her "threatening text messages, harassing phone calls from blocked numbers, and even a cease and desist from her attorney."
"In her cease and desist, her attorney's verbiage was that I needed to destroy any alleged audio that I might have on her that would portray her in a negative light or defame her character," she explained. "I don't know where she got that information from, I've never recorded NeNe. But clearly she's afraid of the truth coming out here today."
When confronted by Porsha Williams on why she did not come clean earlier, Momplaisir admitted, "I was still trying to protect her." She continued, "It was beyond me why she actually went and told you guys she had an audio when she had actually never heard one her damn self. ... The only reason I hadn't really said anything is because I didn't know that NeNe officially threw me under the bus."
