Like her or not, there’s no denying that Kenya Moore has been an entertaining addition to The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and even though we’ve only seen her in action for a few months, we can’t imagine this season without her or her booty.

It turns out that today, Jan. 24, is the beauty queen’s 42nd birthday, so we’ve compiled a list of the Top 3 reasons we love our Miss U.S.A. Check ‘em out below!

3. She’s a Natural, Real Housewife

Kenya may have joined RHoA five seasons in, but she quickly morphed into an ideal Atlanta H’wife without missing a beat. Between her near-constant quarrelling with other cast members and over-the-top personality, we can’t believe this gal wasn’t asked to be on the show five years ago!

2. She Knows Her Worth

Kenya’s “relationship” with Walter Jackson may have been one of the most confusing storylines ever, but we gotta give the beauty queen props for kicking her man to the curb once he stopped appreciating her. Every woman deserves to be treated like a queen!

1. She’s Gone With the Wind Fabulous

What started as a cheeky catchphrase has now become a way of life for Kenya. She has a popular song by the same name, and has even shared the fabulousness with her fans via a line of bedazzled shirts. Now she’s definitely twirling all the way to the bank!
