CONFIRMED?! Kenya Moore Hints She's Joining "Real Housewives of Atlanta" Cast

With the impending departure of Sheree Whitfield, Miss USA 1993 Kenya Moore has been rumored all week to be joining the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" cast.  And as much as we were hoping this ish wasn't true, Ms. Moore herself coyly half-way confirmed it at a recent event.  Get the deets inside...

Just when we thought this was pretty much impossible since Kenya doesn't even live in the ATL, the 41-year-old actress told S2S recently that she's back and forth between L.A. & the southern city...and she feels like it's her duty to show the proper type of woman on these reality shows. Isn't that everyone's intention before the cameras start rolling?  And we all see how that turns out.

So the folks over at Sister 2 Sister caught up with the gorgeous former Miss USA at the Black Women In Entertainment Law fundraiser in NYC honoring Debra Lee on April 24th.

"I've had an opportunity recently to be on a reality show," Kenya exclusively told S2S. "I feel like it's almost like my duty to take the job because it's the converse of what we're seeing now."

"I can say that it's an already established franchise," Kenya revealed to S2S. "I'm back and forth between Atlanta and L.A....primarily Atlanta. Wink, wink!"

I'm just gonna say it.  I've seriously hearted Kenya since she walked across that pageant stage in all her brown girl glory till the time she killed all those Pantene commercials....so I just don't want those perfect images of her fabulousness ruined by the foolywangery that is ATL Housewives.  Or any of these franchises.  Sigh.  Say it aint so Kenya!

Kenya Moore is beautiful and

Kenya Moore is beautiful and she's the MOST established,known,successful,and gorgeous out of any of the HWOA. NOBODY on the Housewives Of Atlanta is on Kenya Moore's level EXCEPT Phaedra Parks... Kenya Moore LOOKS way better than Halle Berry(who's also gorgeous) ;-) Nene,,Kandi,and Phaedra are probably are going to be hating the MOST on Kenya.

Uh hello people. Did anyone

Uh hello people. Did anyone ever think that perhaps it was NeNe that got her on the show? If she was able to talk to the producers about Kim and Sheree perhaps she did the same for Kenya. After all the post said Kenya splits her time between LA and the ATL. So does NeNe with her acting. If Kenya producers TV shows and movies perhaps they ran into each other. I laughed that everyone says the show is a bunch of drama yet you all jump right to making drama filled comments. Think more than one way. SMH.

From Kesha's Blog(Basketball

From Kesha's Blog(Basketball Wives): Basketball Wives - Episode 12 It has been difficult for me to decide what to include in this blog entry.  As a person who prides myself on turning lemons in lemonade, I had no idea how to turn the negative display of human behavior seen in Episode 12 into something positive, until now.  Instead of knit picking, pointing fingers and calling names, I decided to educate myself on the issue at hand.  I would like to share some of this information with you now, because when we know better, we do better.   Definition of the word “Bully”:   Noun:  1.    A person who is habitually cruel or overbearing 2.   A hired ruffian; a thug   Verb: 1.    To treat in an overbearing or intimidating manner 2.   To force one’s way aggressively or by intimidation   Bullying is an act of repeated aggressive behavior in order to intentionally hurt another person, physically or mentally. Bullying is characterized by an individual behaving in a certain way to gain power over another person. Once I had a grasp on exactly what bullying was, I wanted to know why?  Why do people bully?  Here is what I found: Studies have shown that envy and resentment may be motives for bullying.  Research on the self-esteem of bullies has produced equivocal results. While some bullies are arrogant and narcissistic, others can use bullying as a tool to conceal shame or anxiety or to boost self-esteem: by demeaning others, the abuser feels empowered. I asked myself many times, as most victims of bullies do, why me?  What did I do to deserve this type of treatment?  The answer is absolutely nothing.  Bullying has nothing to do with the victim and everything to do with the internal struggle of the bully.  Bullies are simply crying out for attention that they cannot receive in other ways.  It is actually quite sad, especially when seen in adults.  Previously, when I would think of bullies and bullying, I would picture a group of big kids picking on a smaller kid on the playground.  It was only after watching myself get bullied did I realize that adult bullying exists. I found the following information interesting, informative and extremely familiar. There are several different types of adult bullies. 1.    Narcissistic Adult Bully: This type of adult bully is self-centered and does not share empathy with others. Additionally, there is little anxiety about consequences. He or she seems to feel good about him or herself, but in reality has a brittle narcissism that requires putting others down. 2.   Impulsive Adult Bully: Adult bullies in this category are more spontaneous and plan their bullying out less. Even if consequences are likely, this adult bully has a hard time restraining his or her behavior. 3.  Physical Bully: While adult bullying rarely turns to physical confrontation, there are, nonetheless, bullies that use physicality. In some cases, the adult bully may not actually physically harm the victim, but may use the threat of harm, or physical domination through looming. Additionally, a physical bully may damage or steal a victim’s property, rather than physically confronting the victim. 4.   Verbal Adult Bully: Words can be quite damaging. Adult bullies who use this type of tactic may start rumors about the victim, or use sarcastic or demeaning language to dominate or humiliate another person. This subtle type of bullying also has the advantage - to the bully - of being difficult to document. 5.    Secondary Adult Bully: This is someone who does not initiate the bullying, but joins in so that he or she does not actually become a victim down the road. Secondary bullies may feel bad about what they are doing, but are more concerned about protecting themselves. Not all bullies fit into one category.  Some adult bullies possess a variety of traits from each.  The question is, how do we handle these adult bullies?  In my research, I am yet to find the answer.  At this point, all I can do is bring awareness to the fact that adult bullying exists and should not be a behavior that is glorified. One never knows the personal struggles an individual is going through at any given moment and we need to be cautious and careful with one another.  If you are unable to come to a common ground, it is best to agree to disagree, exit stage left and remove yourself from the situation and the person that is bringing negativity into your life. What I experienced was extremely difficult and emotional for me, as I’m sure it is for all victims of bullying.  Unfortunately, I had to relive my personal experience by watching it happen on national television.  At the same time, I now have a platform to bring awareness to the issue of adult bullying in today’s society.  References: www.bullyingstatics.com http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bullying

Kenya's eyes and hair are

Kenya's eyes and hair are real. My sister grew up and went to high school with her in Michigan. She said people used to always ask her if her hair and eyes were real and Kenya got tired of proving it to them. She got all that from her grandmom who is Cherokee. Her mom died at a young age so she was raised by her grandmother.
Dez Medina's picture

There is no doubt that she is

There is no doubt that she is a beautiful woman with exotic features. Likewise, she may very well possess lightly-colored eyes. However, in this photo, she is wearing contact lenses. Any eye-care professional or (colored) contact lens wearer knows that the pupils of the eye are not naturally as dilated as they appear while wearing lenses.

Those may be her eyes and she

Those may be her eyes and she may very well have or have had a lot of her hair. But in this pic, that is NOT her real hair color and is definitely wearing extensions. It's obvious from the way the hair falls from the roots. Not that it matters though. She's beautiful either way.

she's not even on the show yet and she's already increased my the intellectual quotient of that show as well as myself because i've never heard the word "converse" used in that context and for a moment thought that natasha had trasnposed the quote incorrectly or something and i had to look up the word on google. the b1tch is smart!!! and pretty!! nene's going to hate her!! i can't wait till the next season starts!!!! lololol....i agree she "appears" to be too classy for this show, b/c i don't really know about her and she could be messy/mean/lowdown, but i guess she ain't if she's trying to join the show! #moneytalks

how much you want to bet NeNe

how much you want to bet NeNe will hate her from day one? The one thing I will say about RHOA (unlike BBW's franchise and Love and Hip Hop) is the girls do not fight. Some name calling here and there and some foolery, but they don't get violent ( except Sheree tugging at Kim's wig)
