A well-known television personality as well as a model, how rich is Kenya Moore? According to authoritative sources, in 2013 she earned as much as $600,000 per season of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta”, and added a sum of $100,000 for filming the program’s reunion show. However, in regards to her total wealth, Kenya Moore is apparently something of a spendthrift, and her current net worth is estimated to be just $300,000 –however, this may not include one of Moore’s most costly assets, her Bentley GTC car, for which she paid $225,000!

Kenya Moore was abandoned by her mother at birth, and raised by her grandmother. She studied at Cass Technical High School, and later enrolled at Wayne State University, from which she graduated with a degree in psychology in 1992. However, Moore had already begun a modeling career at 14 years of age, was even featured in an issue of “Ebony” magazine, and had an opportunity to work during a fashion event called “Ebony Fashion Fair”, which brought her even more public exposure. However, it was in 1993 through the Miss USA pageant that Moore had her big breakthrough. Since then, she has featured in a variety of popular shows, including “The Steve Harvey Show” with Steve Harvey, “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” starring Will Smith, and “The Jamie Foxx Show” among many others.
