On a recent episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, viewers saw Kenya Moore storm out in a rage.
Tantrums aren't exactly a foreign concept when it comes to Real Housewives, but the stars were supposed to be doing charity work. And Kenya made things all about her.
Except that a report claims that Kenya did this very deliberately -- for a very savvy reason that has nothing to do with angry feelings.
So, you know how the Real Housewives were in Houston doing hurricane relief and Kenya Moore had her own, secret fundraiser?
That episode led to a freakout.
"I’m done with this. I didn’t come here to be constantly dragged in the mud!"
Some would question what any Real Housewife would expect. That's sort of what happens any time that a bunch of them are in the same place.
A producer replied: "But Kenya, that’s what they’re feeling."
That was apparently the wrong thing to say.
Kenya Moore exploded: "I don’t give a f--k! I don’t give a f--k about any of them b---hes."
Well, that certainly is ... charming.
Her angry rant continued as she flipped off a producer.
"That whole table is stupid ass s--t! Every time I do something positive it turns into some bulls--t."
Some might argue that this is, in fact, sort of the premise of reality television.
RadarOnline reports that, per their source, Kenya Moore's tantrum was contrived and calculated by her, with a purpose.
"Kenya didn't want to film for the three or four hours that all of the ladies were doing in Houston after doing hurricane relief."
Well, plenty of people have been in situations where they didn't want to be wherever they were, but usually we're talking about children pretending to be sick after 6 hours at the zoo so that their ridiculous parents will take them home.
Kenya Moore is a grown-ass adult.
"So instead she caused a fight and stormed out."
And what a fight it was. Perfect for Kenya, who likes to be the center of attention. In fact, it was a real win-win for her.
"That way she still filmed but it wasn’t real, and she wasn’t really mad and all she did was cause drama."
That's why she gets paid the big bucks, we guess.
But there was another method to Kenya's madness, the source reports.
"Kenya is so calculating."
She has to make enough drama for two people since her husband, Marc Daly, will not appear on the show.
"She would not have her husband film at all and instead she just got in fake fights with everyone so that she wouldn’t get in trouble for not doing anything."
Last year, we reported that Kenya Moore felt torn between her job and her husband because Marc Daly, the man she secretly married off-camera, refused to go on The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
"Houston was a prime example of her just storming out so that gets shown, but there was no reason for it."
Marc Daly believes that The Real Housewives of Atlanta portrays black men in a negative light, and he's certainly not alone in believing that.
But some fans wonder if, as he watches his wife go to greater and more desperate lengths for attention and screen time in order to keep her job, he wonders if it's worth his pride to stay out of it.
On the other hand, Kenya Moore chose this job and this life. Marc Daly just chose her.
Either way, many must find it comforting to hear that Kenya Moore, a grown woman, had this reaction on purpose instead of actually just being like that.
