Two legendary Hollywood icons have finally made amends. Independence Day actress, Vivica Fox, and former Miss USA reality star, Kenya Moore, have resolved their differences after a beef dating back to 2014 when they both starred in The Celebrity Apprentice.
For those of you who don’t know, the two got into a massive blowup after Fox accused Moore of hacking into her Twitter account, posting distasteful tweets and stealing her phone. The incident grew to become known as “Phonegate.”
“Of course she stole it,” I have absolutely no doubt that Kenya stole my phone,” Fox told TMZ in 2015. “Kenya knew about the tweets, Kenya knew my phone was missing, Kenya stole my phone. Why lie?”
Moore vehemently denied the allegations, but since then, Fox continued to drag Moore in TV appearances calling her “toxic” and blamed her for much of the drama that ensued while Moore was cast in The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
“Everything that has went down with Phonegate, she [Moore] could have absolutely took responsibility and handled this differently so that in the future we can see each other and be cordial to one another,” Fox said.
In response, Moore posted on Twitter, “I need to work for the government if I can crack codes on cell phones.” #CelebApprentice
Seven years later, it appears the feud has been resolved. Vivica told E! News that the two have made up and acknowledged that it was a “long time coming.”
“She wanted to apologize, but privately,” Fox explained. “I just wasn’t ready at first, and then I ran into her, and honestly, it was her little girl, her little energy…she just came over to me and she was so gorgeous. And we just got up and hugged each other, and it was like ‘Girl, let’s just move on.’”
