Another day, another she said-she said between Real Housewives of Atlanta OG NeNe Leakes, and her former friend Kenya Moore. On Sunday night’s February 16 episode, we watched as things turned from bad to worse between the women, when NeNe icily rejected Kenya after she named her the “guest of honor” at her masquerade charity ball. Now, NeNe is coming out and saying that Kenya actually set her up to look bad in front of the cameras!
The former Miss USA has insisted that she invited NeNe to the event, which was held to raise money for the Saving Our Daughters organization — the charity of choice for the Glee star. On the other hand, NeNe maintains that she never received an invitation from Kenya, though she graciously attended the event anyway.
This is where the supposed “set up” comes into play. According to NeNe, she didn’t know that Kenya would invite her up to say a few words to the guests — especially since she didn’t even know about the occasion until last minute.
"How dare you!" we see her say to the Bravo cameras about Kenya. "I’m at an event that I don't even know I gotta speak at. This is Kenya playing her little stupid games. You cannot play a chick like me!”
Months later, NeNe seems to still believe that Kenya purposefully didn’t invite her for this very reason. When one RHoA fan tweeted during the ep, “Kenya played @NeNeLeakes like a fiddle #setup #rhoa,” NeNe not only retweeted her, she made a point to agree, writing, “U right! A total set up.”
So what do you think: Did NeNe get set up to look bad by Kenya?
