Kenya Moore, "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" television personality and former Miss USA, is revealing that she has received some backlash after appearing on season five of the show.
"Yes that's what I signed up for, and yes, people will judge and criticize you. I'm okay with that," she told EGL Magazine recently. "What hurts is when people assassinate you via blogs, Twitter or Facebook. It hurts when they go for the jugular instead of just stating what their opinion is and moving on."
Moore made her debut on the reality television series during its fifth season, where tensions with pregnant co-star Phaedra Parks rose. Moore was highly criticized after the season five-reunion show, when she used a physical threat to speak about the possibility of a battle between she and Parks taking a turn for the worst.
"You will be picking up your teeth off the floor, pregnant and all," Moore told Parks on the reunion show.
The co-stars have been battling over the release of similar physical fitness DVDs on and off of the show. While Moore later apologized for the threats, she admitted some of the attacks that she received from viewers have been atrocious.
"Some people make everything so personal and it seems like unnecessary attacks," Moore told EGL. "Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but there's never ever a need to be downright disgustingly mean and atrocious on any platform whatsoever."
The reality television star said she didn't feel that the show accurately portrayed who she was.
"It doesn't show who I am at all. I have a lot of layers. When you're watching a reality show you may shoot 1000 hours and it ends up being 45 minutes," she told EGL. "With that, you don't necessarily get the full picture."
