When two ‘Real Housewives’ cross paths, there’s bound to be some drama — especially when those Housewives are Brandi Glanville and Kenya Moore!
The two ladies appeared side-by-side on Celebrity Apprentice, on which some harsh words were exchanged. At one point, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star took a jab at Brandi’s personal life — saying her ex-husband, Eddie Cibrian, “left her for a younger, prettier woman.”
But now Kenya, 44, is setting the record straight about their feud and that notorious diss, telling ‘In Touch Weekly’ that there was more than what viewers saw on TV.
“We were doing a task and for five or six weeks, I endured constant insults from her,” the former Miss USA tells the mag. “From attacking my physicality — she at some point said to the other girls that I was fat. She talked Jamie [Anderson] out of using me as a model because she told Jamie I wasn’t in ‘model condition,’ that I was fat — those type of things.”

Since most of the insults didn’t happen in the boardroom, it wasn’t until the 42-year-old said “don’t make me beat your ass like Porsha [Williams did” — referring to Kenya and Porsha’s infamous on-screen brawl last year — that Kenya finally had enough.
“That was the last straw. Because I didn’t react in the moment, people lost it,” Kenya tells ‘In Touch,’ giving context to her now-infamous diss.
“When I went in the boardroom, I said, ‘Look, I don’t bring up things that have hurt you in your past. I don’t bring up the fact that Eddie and blah, blah’ — that was my response. But people missed why I responded that way.”
And unfortunately, Kenya suspects that was what Brandi wanted.
She tells ‘In Touch,’ “I fell into the trappings of what she wanted, which was a negative response. I had done so well for five or six weeks just ignoring her.”
Both women were booted by Donald Trump on the Feb. 2 episode.
