Kenya Moore pulled out the big guns during the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” season five reunion when she suggested Phaedra Parks get an AIDS test. Phaedra has yet to forgive the former Miss USA for her “very ignorant” comment, and she explained just why doing a recent interview with The Grio.
“I think when your getting a good read, and I was giving her [Kenya] a good southern belle read — you will say anything to try to throw shade,” Phaedra said.
“The reason I was so upset,” she added, “is because AIDS is a very serious disease and it should not be taken lightly. It affects unfortunately mostly black women. For a black woman to carelessly throw around a statement such as you should get tested for AIDS and implicate or try to say the reason that I would have AIDS is because my husband went to prison, it’s just very ignorant… to put it mildly, because black women are the highest carrier of AIDS.”
The mother of two finished her interview by suggesting Kenya take her own advice. “So, she should probably get tested,” Phaedra shot back.
