'Real Housewives of Atlanta' Reunion: Andy reveals NeNe said 'Kenya is good for the show' despite bitter spat
However, Kenya's refusal to acknowledge how NeNe has always rooted for her and her ensuing dismissal of the olive branch has left fans fuming
NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore were never on good terms as housewives on 'Real Housewives of Atlanta'. The beef between the two ladies has been one of the highlights of the show. Despite their animosity, when Kenya Moore decided to take a break from filming for the show last season, one person advocated strongly for her return on the show. It might come as a surprise to many that Kenya's nemesis NeNe was her biggest supporter.
During the final part of the Season 12 'RHOA' Reunion, host and executive producer of the show Andy Cohen revealed that NeNe Leakes had always advocated for Kenya to be on the show because she is "good for the show". As soon as Kenya heard that, instead of acknowledging how her nemesis has rooted for her, she began throwing shade at NeNe by saying that her fellow housewife is intimidated by her!
Despite Andy trying to point out that NeNe has tried to extend the olive branch to Kenya on multiple occasions, the former beauty queen insisted that NeNe was a fake person and didn't seem keen on accepting the olive branch. Fans were beyond amused at how bitter Kenya was about NeNe. A fan tweeted, "Kenya could not even take the compliment Andy just said that NeNe has always advocated for Kenya to be on the show and then she went into her being intimated by her...#RHOAReunion."
Another fan wrote, "Thank you @Andy for calling Kenya lie out despite NeNe and her bumping heads NeNe has always spoke highly of her being a asset to the show and being good tv #RHOA #RHOAReunion." A viewer expressed, "Andy is correct and that is true. NeNe had always been an advocate for Kenya to remain on the show because she was good for t.v.. That shocked the *bleep* outta me. You can look it up on youtube. #RHOAReunion."
"Thank you Andy for the clarification we all know many times NeNe has said Kenya was good for the show whether she likes her or not #RHOA #RHOAReunion #olivebranch," shared a fan. Another pointed out, "Andy owner & creator 4 show: Even at your worst she STILL advocated 4u 2be on the show Kenya: She didn't want me on the show Girl he, the OWNER, said she FOUGHT4 u 2 be there. This drama is Kenya's alone. Behind the scenes she advocates 4u 2KEEP your job GIRL #RHOA #RHOAReunion."
