So much for the nicer, kinder Kenya Moore she vowed to be after her health scare. Tonight was the season finale of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and she gave us a big final dose of her crazy, diva ways.
She was hosting a big party and went all out with party planners galore. "Today is like my wedding day," she said, which ... well, that's Kenya. Anyway, she wanted to honor iconic black women and asked each of the Housewives to dress up as a famous one that she chose for them. Most of them were great. NeNe Leakes made a mean Grace Jones; Kandi Burruss was Tina Turner, etc. When it came to her arch enemy Porsha Stewart, however, Kenya assigned her a role that wasn't exactly flattering -- Halle Berry in B*A*P*S.
Now, you know that Kenya did it to get at Porsha purposefully. That was more than evident by the look on her face when she gave her the assignment. So it was good to see Porsha stand up for herself and disobey the diva.
Instead of Halle and the trashy gear she wore in the movie, Porsha chose to arrive as Dorothy Dandridge in an elegant gown. Kenya was not happy. In fact, she flipped the hell out.
She called it distasteful and started scolding Porsha for not following her orders. The hostess with the mostest she was not welcome, especially when Kenya asked her bodyguards to throw Porsha out. If that wasn't diva behavior on display, I don't know what is.
The other ladies were aghast that Kenya would stoop that low, and left in solidarity with Porsha. Good for them, and I wish they'd have actually kept going. Instead they stood around until Porsha decided to be the bigger person and go back in. It would have served Kenya right if they'd left altogether.
But they didn't, and Kenya even apologized to Porsha after a pep talk from NeNe. It was all for show, but she did it. The two agreed they need to sit down and talk things out, but I don't see that ever happening. The reunion, which starts next week, should be interesting. If not for the ongoing feud between the two of them, previews show Kim Zolciak will be there. Don't be tardy!
Do you think Kenya was right to throw Porsha out of her party? Do you think Porsha did the right thing going back in?
