Kenya Moore was glowing on Monday night as she chatted and laughed with her rumored new boo at the launch of her haircare line. However, the debut of her reported bae Eugene Casciaro has some The Real Housewives of Atlanta fans drawing side-eyes, especially since NeNe Leakes recently accused Moore of casting a fake boyfriend for RHOA’s return this fall!
Things got a little bizarre earlier this year when Moore claimed that her rumored fiancé and date from The Millionaire Matchmaker, James Freeman, had gotten married without her knowledge. But over the summer it was revealed that she was possibly cozying up to Casciaro ahead of RHOA’s new season, leaving her fans relieved she hadn’t given up on finding her Mr. Right.
Leakes added a little twist to the romance story, though, when she hinted on Twitter that Moore may be employing a little trickery to keep her storyline fresh for the show.
After Moore took her own dig at Leakes on Twitter in early August, the former RHOA star replied with her own messy diss. “You Never Win When You Play Dirty and You Can NEVER fool the VIEWERS #girlbye,” Leakes replied to Moore. She then appeared to suggest that Moore’s romantic relationship may not be what it seems. “Nite Nite tweetie pies! Headed home 2 MY MAN! MY LOVE! Not 1 I'm payin 2 date me on a show b/c the producers told me i had too #catchtea,” Leakes added.
Moore has faced her fair share of relationship drama since joining RHOA for the show’s fifth season. She faced accusations that she wasn’t really dating her boyfriend from her first season on the show, Walter Jackson. Some went as far as to claim the beauty had actually had Jackson sign a contract to play her man! Moore’s storyline moved away from her love life for most of the next two season, though, with the drama being refocused on the messy scandal involving herself and Phaedra Parks’ estranged husband, Apollo Nida.
