We’ve been hearing buzz for a while now that Real Housewives of Atlanta pot-stirrer Kenya Moore was on the shortlist for Donald Trump’s new season of Celebrity Apprentice. Today, we got further confirmation via show insiders, and to add some icing to the cake, it appears that Kenya’s recent sparring partner and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville will be joining her!

The folks over at TMZ have sources close to the NBC reality show that spilled some of the names in contention, weeks before they are officially announced. Among those rumored to match wits on network TV are Cosby Show star Keshia Knight Pulliam (little Rudy Huxtable!), Kate Gosselin, and Fox News (and shirtless selfie aficionado) Geraldo Rivera. Because that combination totally makes sense...

But the real kicker is the idea of Kenya and Brandi facing off on-screen. The Housewives from opposing coasts have had beef since last year, when tension arose on Twitter — and it’s all thanks to one episode of RHoBH. After Brandi referred to her co-star Joyce Giraud as being “like a black person” for not being able to swim, Kenya lashed out on her on social media, calling her an “ass clown.”

From there, it’s been weeks of tit-for-tat shade — some subtle, and some less so. And while these ladies are perfectly comfortable slamming one another in interviews and from behind a computer screen, it’ll be a whole different beast once (and if) they’re in the same room. Make this happen, Trump!
