Last week during my usual multi-tasking, domestic frenzy, I managed to catch an episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” To be fair, my TV viewing was interspersed with checking on the laundry, tweeting, Swiffering, and simmering a stew. Don’t judge me. I hang my head in shame. But hey, it’s not like I’m secretly DVR-ing episodes…
If you’ve ever seen the show, you know that the Hotlanta divas know how to do ridiculous drama where everything flies (figuratively and sometimes literally): insults, fur, wigs. The most entertaining RHOA is of course NeNe Leakes. Famous enough now to go by first name alone, she’s the strong and sassy scene-stealer.
One of the newest provocateurs on the block is Kenya Moore. She’s a former Miss USA (like, waaay back in the day) and self-proclaimed media mogul who’s desperate for her dweeb of a boyfriend Walter to propose with some ginormous bling.
Inane plot lines aside, Ms. Moore bears a striking resemblance to Grammy Award-winning singer Natalie Cole. Hazel eyes, similar mouth shape, bone structure. (Almost everything but the voice.)
