Kenya Moore

Former Miss USA and The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s newest cast member Kenya Moore joined the Tom Joyner Morning Show today setting the record straight on rumors that she’s creeping with fellow housewife Phaedra Parks’ husband. Moore, 41, also expressed concern about the way the show’s sloppy editing is affecting her image. She left out the fact that she was flown in to add drama to the show since Marlo clashed with the show’s producers and was not asked to return to this season’s lineup.

TOM JOYNER: Do you like your image on Real Housewives of Atlanta?

KENYA MOORE: I think, you know, it’s taken some time for me to adjust on the editing process. I think, you know, people that know me and have known me for the last 20 years in the business I’ve definitely been, you know, a classy woman. I’ve been articulate. I’m a lot of things. And the show seems to be moving my, you know, editing process, or my image in a certain direction.

SYBIL WILKES: I must admit, I mean, I think from what we saw with Cynthia, and then what they have, they have foreshadowed, as far as your relationship with Phaedra and Apollo also indicates that you’re not the classy woman that you are…

KENYA MOORE: Well, that’s the key word that you just said, indicate. I think that that’s what gets, you know, people in trouble. I think you need to watch the show because, you know, when you have a teaser out there, or what most people would consider commercial, you, they’re designed to make you want to tune in. So some things are definitely taken out of context, and let me be the first to say I’m not interested in anybody’s husband. Not Phaedra’s, not anybody else’s. So you can put that on the record.
