These are not the best of times for Kenya Moore. She lost her beloved dog Velvet, we’re about to see her fight with Porsha Williams on the Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 6 reunion, she supposedly feuds with Brandi Glanville in the upcoming Celebrity Apprentice season, and now a source says she has no money.
Kenya has suggested her rich African boyfriend pays her bills, but a source supposedly “close to the Bravo star” told RadarOnline it’s smoke and mirrors. “Kenya is basically broke and she doesn’t have any money,” the source said. “Most of the things that she shows off, like purses or cars, don’t belong to her.”
They said Kenya had a local car dealership in Atlanta loan her an expensive vehicle in exchange for publicity to use during filming. “She was able to pretend she had a high end car and they got the free press.”
The source also said Kenya had to say yes to Celebrity Apprentice because she turned down some potentially money-making TV appearances, and a movie she was going to make overseas fell through. “She desperately needs the money and the longer you stay on [Celebrity Apprentice] the more you get paid.” So maybe it’s a good thing for her to “feud” with Brandi, if drama helps keep her on the show?
This source, who is obviously not a big Kenya fan (is it you, Porsha? NeNe?), does not buy claims that Kenya is being supported by her mysterious boyfriend. “She needs money to keep up her fake celebrity lifestyle.”
But during the RHoA Season 6 finale, Bravo posted a blurb saying Kenya and her “African prince” boyfriend were trying to start a family. So does she have a wealthy boyfriend supporting her, is she supporting herself with her own money (which would be even more impressive), or is she “basically broke”? And who is the “source” throwing this money shade?
Do you believe this source, that Kenya has no money and has to fake her celeb lifestyle?
