'Real Housewives of Atlanta' New Housewife Kenya Moore: Biggest Diva Yet?
Last night marked the season five premiere of Bravo's sauciest southern housewife faction, The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
The show that spawned the comedic stylings of New Normal star, NeNe Leakes, has never been short on over-the-top nastiness but just about everyone was taken aback (and dare we say impressed) with the level of crazy brought by the newest housewife to join the mix, former Miss USA, Kenya Moore.
In fact, the show ranked as the network's highest season premiere ever last night with over $3.2 million viewers.
On the surface, Kenya is your garden variety, Type A personality who makes it to the gym "six days a week" while maintaining her own business empire and continuously adding lines to her already jam-packed brag sheet loaded with modeling, acting, producing, directing, writing and what have you, jobs.
Beneath the surface — yikes!
Bravo often recruits ex-models and throws them in a Housewife room together to have catwalking memory competitions, and it appears she and former model Cynthia Bailey will do their fair share of Zoolander-ing this season.
Cynthia started her own modeling school last year — The Bailey Agency School of Fashion — and teamed up with JET magazine to have a casting call for models. Droves of young women showed up in heels and bathing suits for the open call audition and Cynthia asked Kenya to help judge.
Who knew Kenya would morph into the Simon Cowell of Atlanta's casting calls?
The former beauty queen sniped that one model hopeful looked like a man, another she rudely asked why she even bothered to show up, she criticized a handful for their wardrobe choices and got so beastly at one point that Cynthia's personal assistant intervened, which resulted in a shouting match and a call to her personal security.
Even the wackiest housewives to date are likable in a quirky way, but if Kenya keeps up the antics she may Danielle Staub herself out of a job!
