Of the many beefs that Kenya Moore will entertain this season on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” one of them is undoubtedly her beef with Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida, whom she infamously flirted and texted with during the previous season of the show. Previews for this season show that the texting drama apparently didn’t stop with last season and now Moore is defending herself, saying that she did nothing wrong in texting a married man.

During the season five reunion special, Moore claimed that “There was never any inappropriate text message between Apollo and myself. It was friendly, but he initiated the texts every time.”

In a preview clip from an upcoming episode, Moore sits down with Parks and the rest of the cast and claimed, again, that nothing inappropriate was going on.

“I don’t want your man. I’m nobody’s w—-,” she said.

Moore spoke about the text message drama with Cynthia Bailey in a recent interview with ABC Radio and defended herself again. However, Her cast mates don’t seem to think she’s so innocent.

“I am like an open book. I don’t try to hide things, so if I was texting in response to [him] texting me first I don’t see how that’s a problem, especially when they were not inappropriate texts,” Moore said in a recent interview with ABC Radio.

However, Bailey, chimed in, saying, “If you don’t have that kind of relationship with the wife, I think it’s completely inappropriate to have a text relationship with someone’s husband. I don’t think that Kenya would text [my husband] Peter [Bailey] inappropriately for any reason. I think that she respects me and I think she respects him and I don’t think that she would do that.”

Moore sat in the hot seat again with Kandi Burruss during an interview on Bethenny Frankel’s talk show and tried to explain the innocence of her texting, although she did admit to calling Nida “babe.”

“I did use the word ‘babe,’ but I didn’t use the word ‘baby,’ ” said Moore. “I think it’s ridiculous to think you can never text a married person who’s of the opposite sex.”

But like Bailey, Burruss disagreed with Moore.

“There are rules to it,” Burruss remarked.

Clearly, both Moore and Nida were acting inappropriately to have carried on the conversations and we agree with their cast mates that, considering the circumstances, their text convos were a mistake.
