It is quite ironic that Lupita Nyong’o’s first documented Hollywood beef is with the woman who shares a name with her motherland.
Kenya Moore is a 43 year old model and actress whose career never really took off. She was Miss USA in 1993 and currently stars as one of the six housewives on lowly rated TV show ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’. She’s also a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice Season 7 which premiered last week.
Some time last year, there was a whole bunch of shenanigans about a fake relationship with ‘African Prince’ D’Banj, rented Range Rover, and a borrowed house; the kind of entertainment gossip that does not excite me.
Now on Monday, Kenya decided to take her drama from Atlanta to Los Angeles. She was among the celebrities attending the Golden Globes award ceremony and after-party.
Later that night, she would go on Twitter and claim how Lupita snubbed her at the after-party by refusing to take a picture with her.
After a fan asked Moore who she hung out with post-Globes, the reality star wrote: “Lots of people who were so cool @taylorswift13 was so sweet but @Lupita_Nyongo refused 2 take pics After 2 movies.”
The tweet has since been deleted.
The fan then asked Moore whether she’d just throw shade at the “12 Years a Slave” star, but Moore quickly responded that she wasn’t trying to call out Nyong’o.
“No I was a huge fan!!! There were 1000 A listers being humble it was disappointing that’s all. I want 2 always stay humble,”
From the comments on social media, it appears the reality star is not a favourite of many.
