As she follows in the footsteps of the notorious reality ‘drama queen’ NeNe Leakes, Moore, who shot the photo above during a Rolling Out Magazine photo shoot, basks in the glow of her renewed celebrity.
Kenya came onboard with a certain sense of celebrity while Nene was virtually unknown when she hit the reality show scene. Now that Leakes has catapulted to the top of the ‘reality’ show food chain, many feel that her success has gone straight to her blond quick-weaved head.
But have no fear… Kenya is here to shed some light on Nene’s ‘Big Ego’.
Kenya’s advice about ‘staying humble’ PLUS more of her RO photo shoot below…
Moore was asked about Nene’s arrogant ways after Leakes allegedly refused to pose with advertisers during Bravo’s Upfronts.
“All the other housewives were just happy to be there, but NeNe was acting like she’s Angelina Jolie or something! It’s NeNe’s world and everyone else is just living in it,” a source said.
While on the red carpet for the world premiere of Peeples, Moore offered support to fellow RHOA co-star Porsha Stewart (click HERE if you missed that) but was also asked about Nene.
HipHollywood caught up with Kenya Moore to discuss Leakes’ ego and asked her take on staying grounded in the spotlight.
Moore offered the following advice:
What I’ve learned in my 20 years of being in the business, you have good years, you have bad years … you may do one movie one year, and none the next three years. That has a way of making you really humble.
When you have a career, and you go through those ups and downs, it really teaches you that this is not guarantee. You can see the same people going up as you will going down.
Having played that whole game of ‘rise and fall’ in the entertainment industry, Kenya is probably the best suited to offer Nene solid advice about staying humble.
Moore was once the “IT” girl who used her looks to maintain a lavish lifestyle, but now she’s an aging beauty queen who’s on a mission to keep her name alive by acting a fool on “reality” television.
Can’t knock the hustle. 😯
What do you think of Kenya’s advice to Nene?
