Kenya Moore’s professional relationship with former “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” star Janet Hubert has come to an end over an issue with money.
Apparently, Hubert is accusing Moore of failing to pay her for appearing in the pilot for the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” fixture’s sitcom titled “Life Twirls On,” which is said to be loosely based on her life.
Although Hubert was among those cast to appear in the pilot, the actress was not in favor of signing a form that would give Bravo permission to film her for “RHOA.” Because she felt the popular reality TV show is “quite demeaning to Black women.”
Hubert’s decision to not film for “RHOA” seemed to generate respect from Moore. Turns out, that wasn’t the case as Moore seemingly took issue with it and refused to pay Hubert.
As a result, Hubert put folks on blast via the following post on Facebook:
“Many thanks for all the likes. For Blacktors and Blacktresses everywhere…beware the new Reality TV Scam. Obtaining SAG contracts to promote their own story lines. I was used… beware Reality TV personalities! And all extras, when they want to pay you 10.00 an hour as they tried to do with me. Lost time sheets…Please share and beware!”
Hubert followed up her post a couple days later with a new one that reads as such:
“For all the actors that appeared on the Kenya Moore so called pilot, don’t feel bad she fooled us all, and used the wonderful Winsome Sinclair to cast this mess. My advice to you all next time never sign the release that Bravo tried to get me to sign. Only sign what you are supposed to and that is what is related to the union contract. These reality shows are not governed by unions. That is why they can get away with the stuff they get away with. It is like a freak show, do not be fooled by it. They will ask you to sign your life away… don’t do it.
“I was in Kenya’s corner, I simply don’t understand someone who can turn on you like this,” Hubert added. “Last time I worked with someone this evil was on Fresh Prince. No more black shows for me.”
In addition to the social media posts, Hubert continued airing out her situation in a video she released. In the clip, Hubert is seen impersonating Moore for her “Blacktress” web series.
