NeNe Leakes Accused Of Having An Alleged ‘Inappropriate’ Relationship With Rodney White, Kenya Moore Weighs In And Claims Many Of The RHOA Ladies “Knew What She Was Doing On The Side” — NeNe’s Rep Slams “Despicable PR Tactic” And Says “We Encourage Kenya To Focus On Her Own Marriage”

After stories surfaced this week that Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes is allegedly in a relationship with USDA director named Rodney White, while still married to Gregg Leakes, Kenya Moore explains why she isn’t surprised by the alleged rumor.

“So many of us [housewives] knew that she was out with this man constantly being affectionate, and we knew what she was doing on the side,” Moore told Us Weekly.

Moore noted that she doesn’t take marriage advice from Leakes because of her current relationship status.

“For me it’s like if you’re so comfortable being out in public with someone and kissing them and being just inappropriate — you’re a married woman — so for me, there was nothing that she could tell me about a marriage, because your own behavior with your own husband is not something that I would want to emulate at any point in time during my marriage,” Moore explained.

Although NeNe’s alleged relationship with White hasn’t been discussed on RHOA, a source revealed that the two are in fact seeing each other.

“It’s an open secret [that] Nene and Rodney spend time together,” the insider told the publication in May. “NeNe goes to visit him in Maryland.”

Moore explained why she thinks the storyline hasn’t made it onto the Bravo reality show.

“I think the people that know are her friends or her confidantes or her partners in crime and I don’t think that they just wanted to be the one to out them,” she told Us Weekly. “But so many of them, including Housewives from other franchises, are aware of this man, of Rodney White.”

She added: “I’m just not sure if they just didn’t want to be the one to break the news on TV about it, but we certainly have had a lot of conversations about her and this man. They’ve been seeing each other for a very long time.”

NeNe, for her part, hasn’t publicly addressed her relationship with the veterinary stockpile director, but the source notes their connection is “absolutely romantic,” according to Us Weekly.

Meanwhile, NeNe’s rep released a statement of Moore’s comments. “It’s quite disturbing that especially during this time of so much pain that once again we have to deal with a disgruntled housewife trying to capitalize on NeNe’s name and personal life for the sake of publicity,” the statement read via Us Weekly.

“Kenya stated herself that she and Nene have not been on speaking terms for almost two years now, so it makes no sense for her to speak with such familiarity about Nene’s personal life. And to drag her decades-long marriage, family and relationship through the mud on a consistent basis to insinuate anything about my client’s character is sad, confusing, and a despicable PR tactic that we have no interest in contributing to. We encourage Kenya to focus on her own marriage and we wish her well.”
