Kenya's Back To Being The 'Real Housewives Of Atlanta' Villain After Walking Off Cynthia's 'Mercial Shoot

But after this, arguably one of her most important episodes in the season, she's staying mostly silent. I guess she thinks that her behavior speaks for itself. It's certainly a return to a familiar version of Kenya — but last time she was this antagonistic, she wound up getting
