NBA player Jason Collins made history earlier this week when he became the first openly-gay active athlete in major American team sports. Collins came out via an essay he’d written for Sports Illustrated, and he says he’s received a tremendous amount of support since making this groundbreaking announcement.

One gal who has the utmost respect for Jason is none other than The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s own Kenya Moore.

On April 29 the former Miss U.S.A. voiced her support for the Washington Wizards center, tweeting, “Shout out to Jason Collins for coming out!! Now that's a real man. I'm so proud to see a young man be brave. #LGBT #gaypride #history.”

Given Kenya’s relationship with the LGBT community we aren’t surprised to see her praising Jason, but we still think this “Gone With the Wind Fabulous” Housewife’s shout-out to the pro-athlete is worth mentioning. Three points for Ms. Moore!
