It’s no secret that RHOA stars Kenya Moore and Sheree Whitfield are in a competition over their new homes Moore Manor and Chateau Sheree and in a new interview, Kenya is explaining why the two have formed such a rivalry over the completion of their perspective homes.
“I think Shereé and I get along otherwise, but building a home is no small feat. It takes a lot of time, it takes a lot of money, it takes a lot of headache dealing with contractors… It is just a huge undertaking, and it’s just very personal,” Kenya told The Daily Dish of their so-called House Wars. “For Shereé to be building a home for five years is probably, maybe, embarrassing for her. And to have me come along and go, ‘You know what, girl? Let me do this. Let me show you how it’s done,’ and do it in less than a year, I just think that that just creates a lot of tension and rivalry, just natural rivalry and competition.”
Moore shares that she finally saw Chateau Sheree at a housewarming party in October. “I can tell you that it was very underwhelming,” she said of seeing the home. “To wait five years to see Chateau whatever the name is now, I was just underwhelmed.”
Kenya didn’t hesitate to throw more shade. “Honestly, I thought it was a beautiful home. Clearly, it’s not my taste. I love a modern aesthetic. But I could appreciate someone else’s home that’s different from mine. I just didn’t understand the design of it. I didn’t understand why the ceilings were taller and higher than the size of the rooms. The scale was off. There was fake marble everywhere. There were no appliances,” she explained. “And so you just have to be really careful about when you say and judge for someone else because you have not looked at yourself. So be very careful because karma is something else.”
And she swears she had an open mind going in, despite their history. “Oh, yeah! I was expecting Chateau Shereé to be Chateau the Sh**. And Chateau Shereé was not that. I really was open because I thought Shereé has great taste, and the house looks massive from the outside. I mean, that gingerbread house looks huge,” Kenya shared. “And then when you walk inside, it’s like, but wait a minute. The scale is off. It’s not balanced. [I’m] not even being a hater. You’ll see for yourself. Like, her bedroom looks like a hallway going to her bedroom. It just doesn’t make sense.”
“Finally seeing Chateau Shereé in person was anticlimactic, it was underwhelming, and it just, to me, was not worth the wait,” Kenya said. “And it wasn’t finished. After five years, you’re still not finished? Girl, bye.”
