Rumor has it, Kenya Moore had some drama on set of Food Network’s Worst Cooks in America: Celebrity Edition. Apparently, the “Gone With the Fabulous” reality star was cast on the ninth season of show and had been filming in New York City, but according to a new report, she had a meltdown on set when she was eliminated after the first episode. According to the Daily Mail:
The Detroit-raised reality star held up production on the series for two hours after refusing to leave the set, declaring: ‘I’m calling my agents and they better fix this s***’ while stomping around.
‘You would have thought she was filming a scene for Real Housewives of Atlanta the way she carried on. She cursed at the producers, badmouthed the judges and ranted: “Without me this damn show will fail”,’ a source close to the production told Daily Mail Online exclusively.
‘She did everything except twirl around in circles as she does on Real Housewives; the only problem was, the cameras had stopped rolling!’ the source added.
Moore was outraged that the show’s judges – celebrity chefs Anne Burrell and Rachael Ray – sent her home early for preparing what they called ‘an overcooked piece of fish’.
The former Miss USA took particular umbrage with Chef Burrell, who criticized Moore for wearing an inappropriate wardrobe and six-inch stilettos in the kitchen.
During her post-show blow-up, Moore said that Burrell was ‘jealous of her beauty’ and ‘had it out for me the entire time.’
No one could reason with Moore, who displayed similar antics during her stint on season seven of ‘The Celebrity Apprentice’.
Kenya is now part of the season nine cast of the cooking competition series that also includes actress Nicole Sullivan, reality star Michael ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino, comedienne Loni Love, actress Barbara Eden, comedian Tommy Davidson, TV host John Henson, actress Mindy Cohn and actor Matt Dallas.
A source tells the outlet:
Producers of the show kept trying to get her to leave. They needed to tape the exit scene with her and she refused to go. They needed her to tape her farewell commentary and she refused to. She was dropping F-bombs like no one they had ever seen before.
Reportedly, after more than two hours, her agents convinced her that she had to leave the set before producers had security physically remove her. Even on her exit she made a scene. She allegedly screamed during her exit:
‘I’m TV gold you a**holes. This season will suck without me’.
Kenya’s camp did not respond to requests for comment. [Daily Mail]
