'RHOA' Season 5 Reunion Part 1 Recap: Kenya Moore Fans the Flames

Kenya MooreSo, big surprise, after a season that was all about Gone-With-the-Wind-Fabulous Kenya Moore, tonight's first installment of The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion was ... all about Kenya Moore. Well, Kenya Moore and her ridiculous fan, that is.

She whipped that thing out and dramatically fanned herself all night long as she fanned the flames of all of the feuds she battled this season. It was irritating, odd, and all for show -- just like Kenya.

Her primary targets were Porsha Stewart and Phaedra Parks, who, according to Kenya, were both only relevant this season because of her.


Porsha seemed stumped as to why Kenya hated her from the get-go and chalked it up to jealousy. Kenya mocked her, told her she'd never want a marriage like Porsha's, and said Porsha's "whole existence on the show has been about me." Hello, ego. 

She refused to apologize for kicking her out of her party and said the only mistake she made was inviting Porsha in the first place. Then it was fan, fan, fan. Interestingly enough, Porsha totally defended her husband Kordell Stewart, who we now know filed for divorce just days after the reunion was filmed. When asked about him standing up for her at Kenya's party, she said, "My husband is always gonna defend his wife." 

Then it was on to the battle of the booty workout videos. Kenya claimed her stallion booty video was doing better than Phaedra's donkey booty video, but she had no real proof. They bickered a bit more over what went down, with Phaedra again accusing her of having a silicon ass, and Kenya calling Phaedra "an evil little devil." Things escalated from there. 

"You weren't even relevant before I came on the show, " Kenya told Phaedra. Phaedra shot back telling her no one even knows who she is with her fake boyfriend, fake house, and fake whatever else. But when she called her Silicon Barbie, Kenya took that as a compliment. "Call me Silicone Barbie, because I will be Barbie all day long." 

Kenya called Phaedra overweight and accused her of fighting dirty and going for the jugular. After Phaedra told her she'd need more than a fan if she was going to fight her, Kenya told Phaedra, "Don't be disrespectful because you will be picking your teeth up from the floor, pregnant and all." Classy.

I thought maybe during the reunion we'd see a different side of Kenya, perhaps one that's not crazy and completely irritating. But nope, I think she did what I didn't think possible -- she made us loathe her more.

There are two more parts of this reunion, and I'm not sure what we're in store for. Previews show Kim Zolciak making an appearance next week in a gravity-defying dress, which should definitely make for an interesting time.

What did you think of Kenya's fan?
