The good news is that I was right about what show Kenya Moore was filming in NYC. It is indeed Worst Cooks in America. The bad news is that she is getting some really bad press on Daily Mail.
Daily Mail confirmed my suspicions that she was on the show and shared the entire cast list today. Kenya is joined by actress Nicole Sullivan, reality star Michael ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino, comedienne Loni Love, actress Barbara Eden, comedian Tommy Davidson, TV host John Henson, actress Mindy Cohn and actor Matt Dallas.
I know I am biased in favor of Kenya, but I have to say some of this just does not add up for me. First of all their sources are saying she was voted off first. I just checked her Instagram and her first day of filming was on June 1st. These things generally only film for two weeks. So I tried to get a feel for how long she was there. On June 1st she was in hair and makeup in a yellow dress. Then on the fifth she was in L.A. I suppose it is possible that she was voted off first, but that didn’t happen in the last few days. I think that filming is over for Worst Cooks in America. Then we have a photo from June 8th in the red dress with the enchiladas above.
But the Daily Mail sources say she was voted off for overcooked fish. If she was voted off first for overcooked fish, when did she make enchiladas? Was that a practice round?
The day that Kenya showed up on the set was the day that she got back from Mexico, where she and Matt broke up. So I am sure she was in a bad headspace but she showed up like a trooper.
According to Daily Mail, Kenya has a total meltdown here is what their source is allegeding
- Kenya stomped around the set and refused to leave saying ” I’m calling my agents and they better fix this s***!” Can your really have your agent force a show not to eliminate you first? How would anyone get eliminated?
- She cursed at the producers, badmouthed the judges and ranted: “Without me this damn show will fail!”
- During her post-show blow-up, Moore said that Burrell was “jealous of her beauty” and “had it out for me the entire time.”
- Producers of the show kept trying to get her to leave. They needed to tape the exit scene with her and she refused to go. They needed her to tape her farewell commentary and she refused to. She was dropping F-bombs like no one they had ever seen before.
The article claims that cameras were not rolling when all of this was going on. That’s odd. A reality personality having a major meltdown and losing her mind is exactly what these shows live for. These shows are pretty mild. It’s Rachel Ray for fucksake. She’s perky!
I have never heard anything from RHOA production sources about Kenya being difficult. We have seen her maintain her cool under both verbal and physical attack. She rarely even cries.
I could see her being pissed about being voted off first after readjusting her schedule with RHOA to be there for two weeks. I don’t even know that Kenya has an agent. I don’t recall ever getting any PR from “her people” like I do from other reality show folks. Maybe she does, but I don’t know who they are.
Kenya can certainly throw some shade, and would certainly do so much like she did on Celebrity Apprentice; but I don’t recall her ever cursing anyone out with foul language. Ever. Then again, I was not supportive of Kenya’s behavior on Celebrity Apprentice. I do believe that she stole Vivica A. Fox’s phone. She was very cut throat and it was not a good look for her
I do think she was probably voted off early and perhaps had some rude things to say about it. I don’t think she was “dropping more F bombs than production had ever seen.” That’s not how she operates. The amount of cursing alone makes this source suspect. I find it VERY hard to believe she refused to film her exit or complete the requirements of the contract.
What do you guys think?
