Vivica A. Fox Talks Feud with Kenya Moore, Plus: Her New Movie ‘Arkansas’
Vivica A. Fox and “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kenya Moore's famous feud from the 2014 season of “The Celebrity Apprentice” was reignited this week.
Fox was on “Cocktails with the Queen,” where she made some not-so-nice comments about her former co-star. Today Vivica spoke to “Extra's” Cheslie Kryst after Kenya talked to Billy Bush yesterday.
Cheslie asked Fox about the bad blood between them, and she replied, “I've known Kenya a very long time.” Saying that at first she was looking forward to working with Moore on “The Celebrity Apprentice,” Vivica explained, “I thought that sisters would have a little bit of sisterhood… Honey, that one there, she would throw you under the bus and run over you a few times and laugh about it.”
Vivica went on, “She just plays dirty, and I don't like people like that. I don't like people you feel will stab you in the back, but I wish her the best, to be very honest with you. She is not someone I will ever be friends with, but she has a beautiful new daughter and I wish her the best in the new chapter in her life with motherhood.”
Kenya shared the same sentiment with Billy yesterday, saying, “I've moved on… I wish her nothing but the best… I think she needs some happiness in her life.”
Vivica is all business channeling her inner gangster in her new movie, “Arkansas,” revealing she was inspired by her character from the 1996 movie “Set It Off.”
She said, “That gangster side, I tap back into my character … from 'Set It Off'… It's the 'head chick in charge' roles I get to put a little gangsta in.” Fox added, “It's kind of like 'Napoleon Dynamite' meets the mafia, set in Arkansas… What I love about 'Arkansas'…it's a dark thriller but with comedy.”
The actress plays Vince Vaughn's love interest: “When I met Vince Vaughn, I was a little starstruck,” she confessed.
Liam Hemsworth is also in the movie, and she said he brought the funny. “He has a wonderful sense of humor,” she pointed out. “He is a good actor. It tripped me out that he was able to get that accent.”
Rent “Arkansas” on platforms like Amazon Video, Google Play, and YouTube.
