Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kenya Moore recently claimed she was snubbed by Lupita Nyong’o at a Golden Globes after party.
At the time, responding to a fan on Twitter, Kenya wrote “lots of people who were so cool [at the Golden Globes after party] @taylorswift13 was so sweet but @Lupita_Nyongo refused 2 take pics After 2 movies #girlbye”. Adding, “I was a huge fan!!! There were 1000 A listers being humble it was disappointing that’s all. I want 2 always stay humble”.
This weekend, the Real Housewife attempted to clear up the misinformation about that night. She tweeted, “Funny how a neg story gets legs. I NEVER asked 4 a photo my friend did & was denied. #Alisterproblems LOL still proud of her”. Eyewitnesses at the event refute that version of events. People at the after party claim it WAS Kenya, not a “friend”, who went up to Lupita and the Oscar-winner simply walked away.
A day later and the press at a red carpet claimed that, when asked directly, Lupita had NO IDEA who Kenya was.
Kenya got snubbed by Lupita at an after party for the Golden Globes – Lupita refused to take a selfie with the Real Housewife from Atlanta. And now, there is salt being added to the wound.
Lupita was walking a press line at an event recently, and was asked about the photo-snub by a reporter.
The actress responded by saying, “Who is Kenya Moore?” She had ZERO clue! O.U.C.H.! [via Naughty Gossip]
After all the fuss about Lupita snubbing Kenya… or Kenya’s “friend”… it would appear there was no snub at all.
Perhaps either Kenya isn’t recalling correctly what happened or Lupita had no idea who the women were then they approached and quietly snuck away to avoid taking photos with people she didn’t know. As mentioned earlier, Lupita took photos the same night at the same event with model Cara Delevingne.
