The Real Housewives of Atlanta had a record ratings for last weekend’s episode week with Kenya Moore’s crazy BUTT.
Her flakiness, her confrontational attitude and her ability to peeve all the other women on the show (except NeNe Leakes) has driven the entire season, keeping her front and center virtually every week since she joined the show. She has, in a down and dirty way, invigorated a show that had felt tired and tedious at points last season.
This past Sunday, “Real Housewives” drew its largest audience ever in five seasons, broaching 4 million viewers for the first time ever. It was the most viewed cable telecast of the week. It also drew 2.6 million viewers 25-54, biggest ever in that demo. During this particular episode, Moore was the centerpiece yet again. She lost a business deal with Phaedra and proceeded to create her own exercise video in retaliation. Then she got all huffy because Phaedra had insulted her so she came back by dressing like Phaedra at a fundraiser in the most outrageous manner possible. Stay classy, Kenya!
“Real Housewives” will be taking a week off this Sunday in deference to the Super Bowl. The 14th episode airs Feb. 10.
The show is now averaging 3.1 million viewers a week, up from season 4 to date.
I don’t know if she’s acting or not, but she keeps people talking about her.
