On Sunday night, Bravo aired the 21st episode of ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s sixth season, pulling in an impressive 3.66 million viewers, one week before the season’s finale.
Unfortunately, all 3.66 million of those viewers may find themselves feeling a little cheated today, now reports have emerged claiming one of its story lines was more fiction than it was fact…fabricated for entertainment value.
Why Kenya Moore is now being billed the group’s resident Pinocchio?
Find out below…
Harvey Levin‘s TMZ reports:
On Sunday’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” Kenya revealed her pooch of seven years — a Yorkie named Velvet — had died after being viciously attacked by a neighbor’s dog.
But the day after the episode aired, reports came out claiming the dog was alive and well and living with her friend Brandon DeShazer … and that Moore had FAKED the death to drive up ratings.
DeShazer — who posted a series of old photos of Velvet when the show aired that sparked the rumor — calls the reports “vile” and “irresponsible,” telling TMZ, “Anybody who has pets knows the kind of love you develop for them. To report that something like that would be staged … it’s disgusting.”
This wouldn’t be the first time the former model has been accused of fabricating stories on camera.
Upon joining the series in its fifth season, she was accused of hiring South Dekalb Towing and Transport owner Walter Jackson to play her ‘on screen’ boyfriend unbeknownst to the show’s producers.
