Filming has firmly commenced on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” season 12, and the return of Kenya Moore has all but been confirmed.
Late last week, the one-time “RHOA” alum was spotted in front of Bravo cameras with pal Cynthia Bailey at the latter’s Bailey Wine Cellar in Atlanta.
“Just passing by video credit @cynthiabailey10,” Moore captioned a clip of the star smiling and laughing while strutting through the wine-tasting venue Friday, June 14.
The video came a day ahead of Bailey sharing a series of friendly photos with Moore on her own Instagram page Saturday. The pals are seen holding hands and embracing one another as they stroll through the cellar.
“glad i have a 🍷cellar, cause i needed a glass after @thekenyamoore twirled out yesterday! … @thebaileywinecellar #happysaturday #livelaughlove,” the model captioned the post.
Seeing the duo yucking it up spurred some fans to remark about how foe Nene Leakes is likely feeling about their friendship.
“Nene somewhere punching the pillows 🤣🤣”
“Ok, y’all Know Ne Ne is going to be mad as hell if she sees you two getting alone🤣🤣🤣🤣.”
“💜💗💜 Eat your heart out, NeNe!”
“Somebody pls check on Nene 😂”
“Nene eat your ass out. Y p u can’t look like this a chick. NOT.”
Leakes has long had issues with Moore, dating back from their online spats last year. But things took a turn with her and Bailey when the model failed to inform Leakes that Moore may show up to Bailey’s party in October. Bailey was celebrating the launch of her Seagram’s Escape’s beverage, and then-pregnant Moore, who was initially mulling not attending because of filming, surprised Bailey.
“Cynthia’s done a lot of stuff, in my opinion, on the down low [that] is very sneaky and underhanded,” Leakes fired off in a March Instagram Live stream after the tense filming of the season 11 “RHOA” reunion. “I’m just telling you the truth. … She has done a lot of stuff that you all just don’t get to see on the show that’s just, like, underhanded, and then I always come out looking like the bad guy. But she’s done a lot of f—ed up stuff.”
Moore has remained relatively mum on Leakes, but Bailey seems to be feeling much lighter these days after ending her friendship with the O.G. housewife.
“Sometimes friendships need a break,” Bailey said on “Strahan and Sara” in April. “And I feel like looking back on everything and knowing the kind of person that I am and the friend that I’ve been to her, this friendship just isn’t healthy for me at this point.”
