Kenya Moore is opening up about working with former Celebrity Apprentice host Donald Trump.
This story originally appeared on PEOPLE.
In a preview clip of Wednesday’s episode of The Real, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star tells the table of co-hosts that the businessman-turned-GOP candidate was “very fair” to her on season 7, despite having “his favorites” on the NBC series.
Although the RHOA star, 45, said that Celebrity Apprentice was “a tough show altogether,” she complimented the program on helping her with her business skills, but added of Trump, “I do believe he had his favorites. I wasn’t blonde and I wasn’t a size 00, so I may not have been his favorite.”
In the wake of a leaked Access Hollywood video on Oct. 7 showing Trump and then host Billy Bush making lewd comments about women, the Bravo personality denied being assaulted by the former NBC star when asked if he ever grabbed her. “He didn’t grab me,” she said and added, “He was very fair to me.”

Moore, who won Miss USA in 1993, said that she missed working with Trump on the pageant platform by a few years — but that didn’t keep her from calling him out on body-shaming Miss Universe 1996 Alicia Machado for gaining weight.
“I was a little disappointed that he criticized Alicia Machado, who was a former Miss Universe, for gaining some weight during her term. Listen, I’m not a skinny girl — I used to model, act and I’ve been asked to lose weight before several times — but I love the body that I’m in. I’m healthy, I feel fit, I feel strong, and I don’t think anybody should body shame anyone,” Moore said of Trump, 70.
The Real airs weekdays on Fox (check local listings)
