Season 6 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta has been a tumultuous one, especially the last two episodes. NeNe Leakes' Pillow Talk event turned into the most violent fight the Hotlanta gals have ever seen, and some people can't help wondering if the brawl was somewhat staged. This week, Kenya Moore appeared on the Bethenny, where she was asked if the fight was provoked by producers to up the ratings. Here's what Kenya had to say.
"First of all, that's not our brand and you know that,” Kenya begins. “Our show is number one because we have universal stories. We're watched by blacks, whites, Asians, gay, straight… people love our show because they identify with these women, their stories, and they are universal stories. Period.”
She goes on to defend her show even more, pointing out that not only is RHoA hilarious, but it also held the top ratings spot way before Apollo Nida lost his cool.
"Our show is funny,” Kenya says. “We relate, we read people, we keep it moving. We're not a vicious group of people and we certainly don't demean ourselves by hitting one another and coming to blows.”
The former Miss USA also admits that she’s not proud of the behavior we witnessed in the episodes — regardless of who started the fight.
“It was very embarrassing and I was embarrassed to be a part of that,” the reality star admits. “It is not our brand and that's probably something you'll never see from our franchise because we don't need that. We were number one before, we'll be number one after.”
