The outspoken co-host of ABC’s “The View” alarmed fans this weekend when she announced her support for Moore, who returned to “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” Sunday after a year away from the show.
“I’m so glad #RHOA is back. This first episode is already better than the entirety of OC’s season thus far. Also, this may be a controversial opinion, but I am also happy for Kenya’s return to the series,” McCain tweeted during the season 12 premiere Nov. 3. The post was accompanied by a GIF of Moore snapping and exclaiming, “Yaaasss!”
The post caused many to raise their eyebrows and several admitted that they agreed with her for a change.
“I’m Sad to say !!i agree with you”
“Never did I think we’d agree but …alas here we are!… I’m with you on this one sis”
“Something we agree on as millennials. 👍🏾”
“I sooooo agree, Rhoc has gone downhill, I’m happy Kenya is back also. 😊”
“I’m with you on that!! She brings the flavor!”
“I didn’t know you watch the black franchises 👀 okay Meg! 😂😂😂😩😩”
During Moore’s appearance on “Watch What Happens Live” following the “RHOA” premiere that night, host Andy Cohen brought McCain’s tweet to the reality TV star’s attention.
“Meghan McCain tweeted that she is happy for your return to the series!” Cohen said at the top of Bravo’s nightly talk show.
“I love her,” Moore responded.
This is not the first time McCain has made it clear she’s a fan of “The Real Housewives” franchise at large. The columnist told Cohen back in September that her daytime talk show “The View” can bear some similarities to the reality series.
“Look, ‘The View’ can be like the ‘Housewives’ sometimes,” said on “WWHL” after explaining why she appeared to storm off the set during a heated discussion about President Donald Trump on “The View” with guest host Ana Navarro.
During that same appearance, McCain explained what led her to get up and leave the table.
“I just want to say the walking off footage, we are told by producers to leave the table if it’s too heated,” she said. “I’ve done that many times over the years.”
