'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star Kenya calls in security over latest clash

Bravo / Today
Kenya Moore calls in security to deal with Cynthia Bailey's assistant on the season premiere of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."

"The Real Housewives of Atlanta" wasted no time kicking off the drama on Sunday night's season premiere. In fact, at one point, security had to be called -- well, maybe they didn't have to be.

It all started when Cynthia Bailey invited her fellow "Housewife," former Miss USA Kenya Moore, to help judge a group of women trying out for Jet Magazine's "Jet Beauty of the Week" at her Bailey Agency School of Fashion. But it was soon evident Kenya thought the event was all about her.

"I was looking for someone who reminded me of myself,” Kenya said. "Sexy, strong and really represents black women well."

She was also looking for anything she could find to nitpick about the bikini-clad women who were in the running. That didn't go over well with Cynthia's assistant, Carlton Morton.

"I just think there's a respectful way to let them (know what you think)," he said. "Some of them are coming here, this is their first time modeling. I don't think you should be wearing them out."

But Kenya wasn't listening.

"Excuse me, who are you and why are you talking to me?" she asked before shouting, "Security! Security! Security!"

That urgent request surprised Cynthia, who hadn't hired any security for the event. But as it turned out, there was no need. Kenya brought her own security.

"For her to walk anywhere with a bodyguard when no one knows who she is just makes no sense," Cynthia said after Kenya's guard rushed over to Carlton.

From there tensions took off between Cynthia and Kenya, and it seems safe to say they won't cool down any time soon.

“If Kenya comes for me, I’m coming for Kenya,” Cynthia later revealed. “We can do this all day long like a tennis court -- my court, your court. Let’s go!”

Whose side were you on during the premiere night drama -- Team Kenya or Team Cynthia? Or maybe just Team Carlton? Share your thoughts on our Facebook page.
