Longtime "frenemies", NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore, are at it once again. The Real Housewives of Atlanta co-stars are both currently badmouthing the other to various news outlets in attempt at having each of their names cleared. From Leakes' point of view, Moore is attempting to make her look like "a villain".

Based on how Moore has spoken of Leakes in the most recent episodes of RHOA, Leake's feels that Moore is trying to paint her in a bad light.

According to a source at HollywoodLife, "NeNe feels like Kenya is set on being the queen of RHOA and she feels she’s frustrated that this will never happen with herself on the show." The source continued by sharing, “NeNe feels like no matter what, when cameras are rolling, she keeps making calculated attempts at making her the villain while pushing her buttons to try to turn fans and the network against her." However, from Moore's point of view, things are not as they seem.

While Leakes is accusing Moore of painting her as a villain, Moore is going so far as to say that Leakes tried to get her fired from the hit Bravo series. Moore claims that Leakes feels "threatened" by her, telling Entertainment Tonight, "She tried to get me fired before I was even hired on the show...I just think that she’s always been very intimidated by my presence on the show.”

The former Miss USA continued, saying that Leakes feels "extremely intimidated, jealous, envious" of her.

In an attempt at adding salt to the wound, Moore added, "Her presence now is not impactful at all. She’s missed out on at least four to five episodes this season, so that clearly means the network is sending you a message. You’re not as important as you think you are."

While it is possible that Moore is correct, her words were more than harsh, and carried quite a powerful punch. She also claimed that Leakes and her were never truly friends, and that their relationship blossomed merely out of "convenience".

Moore's final words on the situation were, "The message is very clear: either the network feels that you are still a valuable asset on the show or they don’t, and you’re replaced and phased out, and you just have to move on...NeNe has been on the show for a very long time, and I just think the cast is not gelling with her. She always puts herself on an island. She makes these fights with people that don’t actually have to occur and she’s really the cause of her own demise."
