Drew Sidora has struggled to connect with her Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star, Kenya Moore, and opened up about a particularly “disheartening” moment during a Sunday appearance on Watch What Happens Live.
“We inquiring minds want to know: what were your thoughts on Kenya’s confessional when she asked Cynthia about where does she get all her strays?” a fan asked the reality star.
“I saw that, and I was hurt a little bit, because, you know, Kenya being the first Black Miss USA, it was very disheartening that she didn’t even give your girl a chance,” Drew shared. “I hadn’t even met her. I hadn’t said one word, and she had already made a judgment about me, so my discernment towards her was right, because she never really gave me a chance. She never really got to know me. She definitely pre-judged, which I was definitely saddened about. It is what it is.”
Drew hasn’t taken all of Kenya’s comments to heart, despite being upset by her co-star’s confessional shade. Andy Cohen asked the RHOA rookie how she felt after witnessing Kenya and Toya diss her wig during the December 20 episode.
“Let’s be real, it’s COVID going on! And I was doing my own hair, and so, I had a good laugh, though. It was me watching YouTube trying to learn. So I was like, okay, I can laugh at myself. It is what it is,” Drew explained. “I think a lot of ladies could relate with the wigs. We did the best we could this year. With the pandemic, we had to do our nails, we had to do a lot of things! We learned a lot. So, I wasn’t too mad about it. It was some fun shade. It is what it is.”
As reported last month, Kenya questioned the motive behind Porsha Williams’ commitment to social activism, after the reality star was arrested multiple times over the summer, while attending protests in honor of Breonna Taylor.
“Has anybody talked to Porsha? I know she was arrested… again,” Kenya said in an exchange with her co-star, Kandi Burruss.
“Why did you say it like that?” Kandi asked.
“Cause at this point it just seems like maybe they’re putting themselves in the position to be arrested,” Kenya replied.
Drew took to Twitter during the episode to stand up for Porsha, slamming Kenya for casting doubt on her cast mate’s commitment to the Black Lives Matter movement.
“Kenya makes all this fuss about being the 1st Black Miss USA, but is quick to put another black woman down and fakes support @Porsha4real in her #BLM movement #rhoa” Drew fired on Sunday night.
“Every time you protest there’s a camera around” This is the most DISRESPECTFUL thing someone can say to a black woman who has sacrificed herself for #blm. @KenyaMoore #youaretenstepsback #RHOA” Drew tweeted.
“So proud of @Porsha4real. I couldn’t make it to the event because we were quarantining after attending my father in law’s funeral. #rhoa,” Drew added.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs on Sundays at 8 pm, ET, on Bravo.
