The drama between “Real Housewives of Atlanta” stars, NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore continues to explode off-screen. Kenya Moore celebrated her 44th birthday over the weekend, and received a belated birthday “gift,” from cast mate, NeNe Leakes. However, this dramatic “gift” may surprise you!
The former Miss USA posted a photo on her Instagram of a Cease and Desist Defamatory letter she received from fellow cast mate, NeNe Leakes.
“Mrs. Leakes has learned you have engaged in making false, destructive, and defamatory statements,” the cease and desist stated, “You are hereby directed to cease and desist making any and all false and defamatory statements, which are injurious to her character and reputation.”
Kenya’s Instagram post read,
“I guess this is @neneleakes way of saying happy birthday!#HypocrasyAtItsBest #byegirl #SheTiredIt #SoNastySoRude”
This Cease and Desist request comes as a shock to many viewers who have witnessed Leakes seemingly slander Kenya Moore countless times. The ladies have both taken jabs at one another, and appear on a show where insulting each other is part of the job description.
In April 2014, TMZ captured video of NeNe throwing major shade at Kenya Moore, hurling out all kinds of presumably defamatory statements about Kenya. In the video, NeNe states:
“They need to kick Kenya off with her dumb self,” said NeNe, who believes that Porsha didn’t do anything to justify her termination from the show, no matter what may have took place. “[Porsha] shouldn’t get kicked off. What they need to do is kick Kenya’s fake booty off.”
Watch the video below:
NeNe has made countless statements presumably attacking Kenya Moore’s intelligence and character. In May, NeNe did an interview where she stated:
“I think Kenya’s great for the show. If they’re looking for the dark side, they’re looking for negativity, fighting, provoking, delusionalness, if that’s what they’re looking for, she’s 100 percent excellent for the show.”
Twitter also seems to support this opinion. After this news was released, numerous tweets point out NeNe’s hypocrisy, and lend support to Kenya Moore.
The following Tweeter thinks NeNe may be avoiding Kenya Moore and Claudia Jordan at the upcoming reunion. Both ladies give NeNe Leakes a run for her money in the “reading” department so that’s a valid point.
Do you think NeNe has a valid case or is NeNe being a hypocrite? Vote below and sound off in the comments.
