Actor Michael Rapaport and reality star Kenya Moore both made a lively appearance on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, trading insults and shade that would’ve been right at home on Moore’s Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Host Andy Cohen claims the WWHL crew had no idea the two were “enemies” when they were booked, referencing a Twitter feud between the two that dates back to 2016. In defense of Porsha Williams, Rapaport tweeted, “Krazy Kenya Moore was bullying Porsha Williams when she got the wig snatched. She should have no regrets about that wig snatch.”
Moore promptly replied by shooting back, “Michael Rapaport, you are pathetic and ignorant for promoting violence on any level. Please get a job to keep your cable to watch me every week.”
With the two finally meeting face-to-face, Moore initially dismissed the Sully actor, saying, “Peasants can’t summon queens.”
Rapaport then replied, “Kenya, you know — you have to know — look at me. You can make eye contact with me. Are those contacts or are they real? I came back backstage, and I introduced myself to you and I told you that I judge you from the show, but you do know that you are on the show, like, a villain, right? You have to know this, correct? You’ve gotten better, but you are a villain.”
“Michael, I don’t need you to tell me what I am or am not,” Kenya said. “I appreciate you being a fan, though. Thank you for watching. Keep the cable on. A new job would help with that.”
“You wish you were me, Kenya,” Michael said, to which Kenya replied, “Ohhhhh, a middle-aged, fat white guy? Not really.”
The Higher Learning star wasn’t done yet, however, taking a dig at Moore’s “ashy feet,” which she played off while answering a fan question. Skip to the 4:50 mark to see Rapaport & Moore go at it once again.
Moore later took to Instagram to comment on the shady sit-down via Instagram live.
