KENYA MOORE is messy! I love her, but she does not have Claudia’s best interest in heart. She is clearly pushing Claudia towards Kordell to piss Porsha off. Then again, Claudia has to know it is messy to kick it with a coworker’s ex! I kind of fele like Claudia is reaching right now for drama. This season all the girls are proving to be mean it seems!
