“Every day somebody thinks I’m Beyonce.” These are the words of Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore, one of the two new ‘Wives to be added to the highly rated show for it’s fifth season. But does the former Miss USA really look like People magazine’s “World’s Most Beautiful Woman” of 2012?
We put together side-by-side photos for comparison (above) featuring Kenya Moore from the 2012 BET Awards and Beyonce from a screening of Beyonce: I am – World Tour Live in 2010. (I had to go back a couple years for Beyonce to get a similar hairstyle.)
Kenya and Beyonce do have similar features such as their skin and their smiles, but Beyonce’s eyes are a bit smaller, her brows have a higher arch, and her chin is a little less pronounced — all of which gives her a softer look. That being said, there is definitely a similarity! I’m sure with her pageant pedigree, Miss USA 1993 Kenya Moore can make quite the impression when she enters the room — perhaps leading some to think she is Jay-Z’s better half.
Regardless of whether or not Kenya looks like Beyonce, one thing is for sure — she’s got Beyonce’s confidence! In a recent interview with In Touch Weekly, she praised her own performance on Real Housewives of Atlanta. “It certainly feels like I may be the new star of the show,” Kenya explained. “I certainly can keep people’s attention.”
So what do you think? Was Kenya’s statement that she resembles Beyonce accurate or just a bit of wishful thinking? While you ponder that question, be sure to check out our new 2012 Miss USA Nana Meriwether and tell me she isn’t the spitting image of The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Cynthia Bailey!
