Kenya Moore was a known entity way before Real Housewives of Atlanta thanks to her Miss USA win in 1992, so we’re not surprised that there are rumors that the queen of twirl dated some of the entertainment industry’s biggest names back in the day. There was even chatter that Kenya dated Jay Z in his pre-Bey days, but despite appearing in his “Money Ain’t a Thang” music video, Kenya has long denied that coupling.
However, in one of her weekly Twitter Q&As last week, a follower asked Kenya is she was ever linked to actor/comedian Arsenio Hall, and the beauty queen didn’t exactly deny it. In fact, she kind of made it sound like they did date briefly, but it was pretty causal. “We've hung out a few times. He's a good friend. Good guy,” Kenya replied to the curios fan.
Like we said, it doesn’t seem like Arsenio and Kenya ever got very serious, but it certainly sounds like there was something there at one point. When Kenya appeared on the now-canceled Arsenio Hall Show back in January, she evenjokingly asked him to be her baby daddy!
After confirming that she was in the clear to have a child following her fibroid surgery (which we saw during Season 6 of RHoA), Kenya quipped to Arsenio back in January, "I'm ready to go. What are you doing at six o'clock?” The talk show host sheepishly laughed off Kenya’s pretend request, but we bet he was flattered she asked!
