Kenya Moore made quite a splash when she joined the cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta at the start of Season 5 in Fall 2012, and while she clearly brought the drama from the moment she came on the scene, not everyone was so fond of the former Miss USA.
During Season 5, Kenya made it clear that she disliked Porsha Stewart and Phaedra Parks (even “copying” the latter lady’s booty workout DVD) and came off as a desperate singleton who just wanted Walter Jackson to put a ring on it, regardless of how disinterested he actually was in marrying her.
At the end of last season there was some question as to whether or not Kenya would be brought back for another year, and even though she’s obviously a part of the Season 6 cast, there are still some people who don’t understand why the beauty queen didn’t get the ax after her first year.
Bravo exec Andy Cohen recently brought back his Ask Andy series after a brief hiatus — videos exclusive to BravoTV.com during which Andy answers a varitey of questions directly from viewers — and the first question he was asked was why Kenya was brought back for RHoA Season 6.
“Because, why wouldn’t she be?,” he countered. “She’s quite entertaining, she’s mixing in with the women in interesting ways, and for me, it was a no brainer.”
Kenya and Andy’s boo, NeNe Leakes, may be feuding right now, but clearly the Housewives honcho is also a member of Team Twirl. We’ve already predicted that both of these tall broads will score a coveted seat next to Mr. Cohen at the upcoming RHoA Season 6 Reunion, but we’ll have to wait and see where Andy places his favorite ladies!
