Like many women of her generation Drew Sidora grew up watching Kenya Moore on the Real Housewives of Atlanta.

The young actress dreamed of one day meeting her idol, but those dreams were shattered when the two women finally met in person.

The two personalities clashed right away, as Kenya, 50, was clearly intimidated by the fresh-faced 35-year-old, whom she rudely referred to as a "stray" in a recent confessional.

Drew was introduced to the cast by Kenya's BFF Cynthia Bailey, but Kenya became fast friends with another newbie, LaToya Ali, who was quick to throw shade at Drew.

LaToya, who isn't a full cast member on the show, made fun of Drew's wig one day. She told Kenya she could see glue under Drew's wig.

According to Hollywood Life, Kenya referred to Drew as "sneaky" after she confided in her about taking a private jet with LaToya, while the other woman rode in a Sprinter van.

Kenya had asked Drew to keep her luxurious extravagance a secret from the other women. But Drew innocently shared Kenya's secret with the other ladies.

When asked if she knew Kenya called her "sneaky," Drew said, "No, she never told me. She was smiling in my face."

"As you see she laughs in my face, she seems to treat me really nice, and then she runs back, you know, and she talks behind my back and I don't think that's right," Drew said.

Drew explained that she once admired the former beauty queen and dreamed of meeting her one day. The mom-of-three said she didn't expect Kenya to feel threatened by her and talk about her behind her back.

"When I met her I didn't have any problems with Kenya," Drew said.

"I looked up to her since I was a little girl... and meeting her she was just a different person and I didn't expect that behavior from her, and I was disappointed."

Drew Sidora says Gizelle and her husband, Pastor Jamal Bryant really are together and they are in love.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta newcomer doubts the criticism leveled at the Bryants by The Real Housewives of Potomac cast member Monique Samuels, who claims Bryant is cheating on his wife.

Monique (pictured at home with her family) said Bryant has had a mistress for eight years. Bryant clapped back by threatening legal action and accusing Monique's husband, Chris Samuels, of beating her. Bryant also vowed never to appear on RHOP again.

Monique, a 37-year-old homemaker and mom-of-two, officially quit the show and won't return for Season 6.

Drew Sidora told Andy Cohen she knows Pastor Bryant very well and she defended his relationship with his wife.

"I know pastor Jamal and he loves this woman," said Drew, 35. "I know a lot of their history and I believe that they really are together and in love."

Drew continued: "I saw him at the airport in Atlanta and he shared with me that they were back together. Because I was in the church when all of the scandal things were happening so..."

Drew questioned Monique's motive for trying to break up Pastor Bryant and his wife, Gizelle. She is not convinced that Monique's binder is filled with texts and other receipts.

"I wish she [Monique] would have gone through all the tabs and they've got apps for that stuff so I can't really say for sure, you know?"

Drew Sidora recalls the time when Nicki Minaj body-shamed her during an audition just months after her pregnancy.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star recalled the humiliating moment during an appearance on her RHOA co-star Kandi Burruss' YouTube show Speak On It.

"So, I was up for an ABC family series, a Nicki Minaj pilot. And Nicki herself said that. She said I don't look how I looked when I played T-Boz," Drew explained.

"I was like, 'Nicki!' It was like, all these ABC execs around but I had gone through about five rounds. And she really, really liked me," says Drew.

"And then she said that in front of all of these [executives]. It is was it is.' I was like, 'Look, I just had a baby.'

Drew had her first child, Josiah Jordan, from a prior relationship. She shares two children, Machai and Aniya, with ex-husband Ralph Pittman.

"I think at the time my baby was like 3 months old, I was literally still breastfeeding," Drew said.

Drew, 35, admits that her body didn't bounce back completely after giving birth to three children. She took Nicki's criticism as inspiration to get herself back into shape.

Drew is best known for her role as T-Boz in the TLC biopic CrazySexyCool.

NeNe Leake's reign over Real Housewives of Atlanta cast members has come to an end.

According to earlier reports, NeNe was canned by Bravo execs after years of intolerable behavior and insubordination on the set.

NeNe is reportedly preparing a racial discrimination lawsuit against Bravo, even as she is busy filming her new reality show over at E! TV.

The 52-year-old former stripper landed a new show on the E! Television network titled Glamsquad Showdown.

According to gossip blogger B. Scott, NeNe will soon go public with allegations of racial discrimination against True Entertainment and Bravo.

B. Scott also reports that NeNe was pushed out the door in favor of younger and fresher talent. NeNe was reportedly replaced by actress Drew Sidora, 35, and mom blogger and YouTube star LaToya Forever, 33.

Over the past few months there have been reports that NeNe wasn't offered a contract extension for the next season of RHOA.

Negotiations between NeNe, Bravo Network and her manager broke down after the mom-of-two demanded more screen time in every episode, according to Tamara Tattlez, who added that NeNe was offered a 5% raise which she turned down.

NeNe was reportedly "hurt and depressed" over losing her six figure per episode salary on RHOA.

A source says the New York native was worried because she's responsible for three households, including her $2.1 million, six-bedroom, six-and-a-half bath mansion in Duluth, her eldest son's home, and a rental property on the West Coast.

NeNe is the sole supporter for her unemployed husband, Gregg Leakes, a colon cancer survivor. Her manager vehemently denied the reports that she was fired from the show.

The cast of VH1's upcoming TLC biopic joined the original TLC members, Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas, for the premiere of the VH1 original movie "CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story", held at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square Theatre in NYC on Tuesday.

Pictured above are L-R: Rozonda 'Chilli' Thomas, Drew Sidora, Lil Mama, Keke Palmer and Tionne 'T-Boz' Watkins. Rapper Lil Mama plays the late Lisa "left Eye" Lopes, Drew Sidora plays T-Boz, and KeKe Palmer plays the role of Chilli in the much-anticiapted TV movie.
