RHOA’s Kenya Moore Shades Marlo Hampton as an “Ex-Con” Amid Jealous Claims, Plus Talks Friendship with Sheree and Teases Kandi DramaDon’t come for Kenya Moore, y’all.

The self-proclaimed “Gone with the Wind FabulousReal Housewives of Atlanta star recently made an appearance on The Wendy Williams Show to promote the new season of RHOA, and let’s just say she did not hold back. She specifically came for frenemy and newly minted peach holder Marlo Hampton.

When guest host Michael Rapaport claimed that Marlo thinks Kenya is jealous that she had finally become a full-time housewife, Kenya had an epic comeback for the ages.

“Jealous? That’s really silly,” Kenya quipped. “I’m an icon, she’s an ex-con.”


Kenya went on to admit that she’s always been good at “snapping” back, saying, “Yeah, probably so!”

No arguments there.

Viewers will recall her iconic spats with RHOA alum Kim Fields, and she even physically tried to remove her from her chair during a chat with Cynthia Bailey. And let’s not forget the Kenya Moore Hair Care founder crashing Marlo’s wig launch seasons ago, and there’s also her iconic “You’re a dumb ho” assault with Porsha Williams.

Michael then asked whether Kenya believed Marlo was trying to be the next NeNe Leakes, which Kenya quickly shut down.

“You’ll never fill those shoes, so just stay in your lane,” Kenya said. Then, she delivered this epic line, “Or, you know, behind your bars.”

Kenya also took to time to speak on her newly repaired friendship with Sheree Whitfield, who she’s also had a contentious relationship with.

“I’m happy we’re friends again,” she stated. “She’s my neighbor, like, literally I can throw a stone and hit her back window. So, I need to be friends with her because I might need some brown sugar!”

Kenya also teased upcoming tension with co-star Kandi Burruss, who spoke to Page Six back in March and said Kenya tried “coming for her.”

“She tried to come for me one time. I gave it back to her. You can’t [try me]. I’m not going for it… Don’t try it with me. Try Jesus don’t try me. That’s how I feel,” Kandi said.

Marlo took to her Instagram page on May 19 to respond to Kenya as she shared a collage of her past mugshots with the caption: “A round of applause ???????? to all the ex cons who’ve turned their life around. It’s not about where you start, but about how you finish! Keep Going! #iconicEXCON #OGfriend #weonthesamescreennow #collegegraduate #businessowner #raisingkings #fostercareadvocate #fashionmaven #georgiastateambassador.”
