Kenya Moore is rightfully proud of her Miss U.S.A. win back in 1993, but did the gorgeous gal and current star of The Real Housewives of Atlanta ever compete in the Miss Universe pageant?

Uh, of course she did. By winning Miss U.S.A., Kenya was automatically eligible to compete in Miss Universe, and even though she didn’t take home that coveted crown, she still did very well for herself, natch.

When a Twitter follower asked Kenya if she’s ever been in Miss Universe, she replied, “Yes. All Miss USAs do. I placed 5 or 6 overall.”

That means that back in the early ‘90s, Kenya was one of the most beautiful women in the world. You RHoA ladies better recognize that you have a legitimate beauty queen in your midst — regardless of how crazy she may be!
