So Fresh, So Clean
All the drama in Atlanta will have to rest, as the group that’s normally full of rumors and side-eyes have turned their attention towards a good cause.
In honor of PEOPLE‘s yet-to-be-released Beautiful Issue, the magazine coaxed the cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta into showing fans their look sans-makeup. The ladies, who are normally all glitz and glamour, stripped down to their bare facial skin alongside sharing their thoughts on beauty.
Kenya Moore, who recently confirmed that she is pregnant, said that she feels most beautiful “in the morning when I wake up.”
“Being on TV makes you a target for criticism and it used to really make me self-conscious because I was constantly teased about my textured skin and pitted scars shown in High Definition TV,” the 47-year-old continued. “Although my skin isn’t perfect now, I think it’s beautiful. The beauty of my skin is its deep rich chocolate hue. Besides, internal beauty is always from within and I believe loving your flaws make you more beautiful.”
The mommy-to-be and her husband-of-less-than-a-year Marc Daly will be welcoming their first child together soon. During The Real Housewives of Atlanta season 10 reunion show, She coyly shared, “We will definitely be welcoming a boy or girl in late this year.”
Of course, she didn’t share too much, as she’s surely saving it for ROHA season 11. According to some, Kenya, who was nearly out the door after her husband Marc Daly refused to be on camera, “saved” herself with this news.
According to Sheree Whitfield, if she could only wear one beauty product, she would opt for some moisturizer with a little tint to it. When asked which features she’s insecure about it, she said, “I have a scar on my jaw that I use to be really self-conscious about, but as I’ve gotten older I’ve learned to love my imperfections and beauty marks as they are unique to only me.”
Alongside loving her uniqueness, the mom-of-three is learning patience. In late March hopes that her inmate boyfriend, Tyrone Gilliams, possibly getting released early were high… Until a judge shot them down.
According to Radar Online, U.S. District Judge Deborah A. Batts denied Gilliams request to be released early.
Speaking of Sheree… After her boyfriend’s pitch for freedom was rejected, NeNe Leaks was the first of her co-stars to respond. NeNe, 50, slid under TSR‘s post, commenting, “Well I guess we know who the real lier [sic] is after all.”
Luckily, the star’s thoughts on being make-up free are a lot less… catty.
“I’m makeup-free more than I am in makeup, and for me it just means being yourself without any fuss,” she told PEOPLE. According to the New York native, her beauty routine has changed much over the years. “I’ve always been a skin girl but as I’ve gotten older I make it a point to never sleep in makeup, see the esthetician once a month, wash my face twice a day and always moisturize,” she revealed.
