We knew that a lot of behind the scenes drama goes on between the Real Housewives of Atlanta women leading up to the reunion, and sometimes that dirty laundry will get trudged up on-screen (sometimes even documents come out!). But on tonight’s April 27 “Reunion, Part 2” episode, Kenya Moore took things to a new level when she accused NeNe Leakes of trying to conspire against Phaedra Parks before the Season 5 reunion.
In the aftermath of last week’s violence, the women seem to be in mutual agreement that Kenya was intentionally provoking Porsha Williams with her props. That inspires Kenya to point out that some of the other women have played dirty themselves.
“Oftentimes before a reunion, we get these phone calls,” the former Miss USA begins ominously. “I remember getting a phone call from NeNe last reunion about Phaedra.”
At first, NeNe seems taken aback by this seemingly random accusation, but she soon shifts gears. “I remember getting a phone call from you about Phaedra!” the Dancing With the Stars contestant fires back.
Guys? What are you talking about?
Kenya doesn’t let NeNe’s turnaround get in the way of her accusation. “We were talking about the fact that NeNe doesn’t like Phaedra, why she feels like she needs to get her during the reunion,” Kenya interjects. Whoa! Those are some serious accusations — and we imagine Ms. Linnethia is not happy to have her name sullied like that.
From there, NeNe tries to turn the tables on Kenya, accusing her of playing “dirty” by bringing the subject up. “I had a problem with Phaedra, I told Phaedra, and guess what? We have squashed it,” NeNe explains. “This is not the weakest link, boo boo. And as soon as I feel anyway about anybody, I will let them know.”
Hmm… Do you think Kenya was just trying to stir up trouble between the newly reconciled Phaedra and NeNe, or is there some truth to this theory? Tell us what you think in the comments below!
