“Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast mates NeNe Leakes (pictured left) and Kenya Moore (pictured) have taken their intense dislike for each other onscreen, off! The two divas are at even worse odds, after Leakes reportedly had her legal eagles dash out a cease and desist letter to Moore, accusing her of being libelous and slanderous of her good name, according to US Magazine. The legal document reportedly arrived right in time for Moore’s birthday, but it wasn’t gift wrapped.
Moore shared a picture of the document via her Instagram account that read in part:
“Mrs. Leakes has learned you have engaged in making false, destructive, and defamatory statements,” the legal document said. “You are hereby directed to cease and desist making any and all false and defamatory statements, which are injurious to her character and reputation.”
Moore, who just turned 44, responded to the warning by captioning the photo with:
“I guess this is @neneleakes way of saying happy birthday! #HypocrasyAtItsBest #byegirl #SheTriedIt #SoNastySoRude.”
The two women can certainly share the pot shots blame since they have never seemed to get along on the show. This season, Moore has called Leakes everything from ghetto, classless, a beast, and a moose, while Leakes’ insults toward Moore have been not as juvenile, but low nonetheless. “I think Kenya’s great for the show,” the 47-year-old also actress told Hollywood Life in May. “If they’re looking for the dark side, they’re looking for negativity, fighting, provoking, delusionalness, if that’s what they’re looking for, she’s 100 percent excellent for the show.”
Leakes did not respond directly to Moore’s Instagram post, but she did go to her Twitter page to tweet a little zing that is probably meant for the former beauty queen:
“The Thirst Is Real!” Leakes wrote. “They need me for press because they can’t get none.”
