Is Kenya Moore ratcheting up her drama with Kim Fields? On Sunday night, as the latest The Real Housewives of Atlanta episode aired, Kenya retweeted several tweets from viewers that poked fun at Kim. One tweet that Kenya posted even claimed that Kim’s husband is actually gay. While Kim didn’t tweet anything about Kenya specifically, she did post some tweets that made clear that she doesn’t care what people are saying about her.
One tweet that Kenya retweeted warned Kim to not mess with Kenya, because Kenya will win. The viewer described Kim’s hair as a “nappy a** blond weave.”
Kenya then retweeted a viewer’s tweet that explained that Kim doesn’t understand that what Tammy McCall Browning said about Sheree Whitfield was against “girl code,” because she’s “a beard.” A beard is slang for a woman who is with a man to help him cover up the fact that he is gay. Kenya replied to the tweet with two laughing face emojis.
Kenya posted her own tweet that expressed exasperation at how much Kim cried.
Kenya didn’t stop. She then retweeted a viewer’s tweet that stated that Kim should just remain with her family and be taken off the show. Kenya professed that she’s finding the viewers’ mean tweets about Kim harsh. Yet clearly, by retweeting the tweets, she wants people to see them.
Lastly, Kenya retweeted one viewer’s tweet that wondered why Kim is on the show since she’s such a bore.
Is Kenya Moore just delivering the information that needs to be heard? So far, on Season 8, after every time Kenya has been called out for starting and instigating drama within the group, she has defended herself by stating that she’s just saying what other people said. On the season premiere, upon seeing Sheree Whitfield at Cynthia Bailey’s eyewear launch party, Kenya immediately told her that the neighbors have been complaining that her house, nicknamed Chateau Sheree, has been under construction for years. When Phaedra Parks later asked Kenya why she behaved like that with Sheree when she claims to have changed, Kenya said that she just told Sheree what she needs to know.
On last week’s episode, Cynthia’s friend Tammy told Cynthia and Kenya during the car ride to the Lake Lanier boat outing that she doesn’t think that Sheree would have married her ex-husband if he wasn’t a NFL player. Tammy explained that she has been best friends with Sheree’s ex, Bob Whitfield, for years. On Sunday night’s episode, Sheree confronted Tammy about she said. Sheree even accused Tammy of being one of the many women Bob cheated on her with during their marriage. Tammy adamantly denied the accusation.
It then came out that it was Kenya who told Sheree what Tammy said. Kim Fields made clear that she finds Kenya to be in the wrong for telling Sheree. After Kenya defended herself by saying that she just gave Sheree the information, Kim basically called out Kenya for instigating drama.
“It doesn’t feel like that there’s a difference between information and instigation.”
On Twitter, Kim responded to all of the criticism that she’s boring, should loosen up and perhaps leave The Real Housewives of Atlanta altogether by expressing shock, but then admitting that she doesn’t care. She used footage from her role as Regina “Régine“ Hunter on the 90’s sitcom Living Single to prove her point.
Kim also assured everyone that she can definitely fight back when needed.
Sunday night’s episode showed Kim seemingly being really uncomfortable as the rest of the women partied it up and let loose in Miami. At one point, as the rest of the women were dancing, Kim cried, yelling that she doesn’t understand women dancing with one another just for the sake of dancing. Phaedra Parks comforted Kim as she cried that she wanted to go home. In regards to her crying on the episode, Kim admitted that she showed “more emotions than usual.”
Kim also revealed that she actually did dance.
She also assured everyone that she wasn’t crying because she missed her family so much.
A preview for next Sunday’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta shows that viewers will see things heat up between Kenya Moore and Kim Fields. During a meal with one another in a restaurant, Kenya tells Kim that she seemed really uncomfortable during the Miami trip. Kenya says that she thinks Kim struggles with being herself and with being a wife and mother. Kim immediately says that what she was really uncomfortable with was Kenya “manufacturing some drama.” When Kenya says that it wasn’t like that, Kim retorts that it was exactly like that.
“I’m not gonna be in a situation where I feel unsafe, most especially when it crosses the line….it just seemed like you were manufacturing some drama. Let me clear sweetie, when you provoke somebody and you accuse them of things, that’s something that I’m not going to take part in.”
