Kanye West's upcoming wedding to Kim Kardashian is likely to be an epic production, but it could have been "Gone With the Wind fabulous" had his pursuit of Kenya Moore been successful. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, who coined the famous catchphrase, revealed to Access Hollywood on Wednesday that West hit on her "years ago" before he started dating Kardashian.
“Kanye likes beautiful women, curvy women … this was a long time ago,” Moore said with a laugh when asked if West had hit on her during their first meeting.
“He was really sweet when I met him. He seemed very humble. I thought he was a great guy,” the former Miss USA 1993 continued. “We met in Beverly Hills. He walked over, he was very humble. He spoke to me. He was super nice,” she explained. “Of course, we didn’t date, because I was with someone. He was a very charming guy, I can say that. I was very charmed.”
Moore insists that West was every bit the gentleman when they met, and wishes him well in his current relationship. “I’m very happy that he’s found love and that him and Kim are having a good relationship.”
Clearly the missed opportunity between Kanye and Kenya (try saying that five times fast) was meant to be — West recently proposed to his baby mama and has been excitedly planning their wedding ever since.
