Kenya Moore has certainly made a memorable impression on The Real Housewives of Atlanta fans and cast members alike, but is the 41-year-old newbie really the new “star” of Bravo’s hit reality show?

It certainly feels like I may be the new star of the show,” Kenya tells In Touch.

And since Kim Zolciak’s sudden departure from RHoA earlier this season, Kenya may have a valid point. “There’s a lot of jealousy toward me,” she explains. And her outspoken nature and strong opinions also remind many of a former H’wife. “Like Kim, I’m a strong personality. If I don’t like something, I speak up.”

Yet in a not so subtle dig at Kimmie, Kenya also maintains that there are important differences between the two gals. “I don’t chain-smoke,” she says. “And I don’t constantly have a goblet of wine in my hand.”

We can’t speak for her smoking habit (or lack thereof), but give her a few more months on Housewives and she’ll be chugging vino in no time!
