RHOA's Kenya Moore smiles in makeup-free selfie after nemesis Nene Leakes quits the show

REAL Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore made it clear she's happy about a chance to "start over" after her arch-rival Nene Leakes left the show.

The 49-year-old reality television star shared a smiling image to her Instagram on Tuesday, which she captioned: "With every new day is a change to start over," and added the hashtag FreshStart.

The pretty Bravolebrity was make-up free and appeared to have a towel protecting her modesty.

It comes after Nene announced she is leaving The Real Housewives of Atlanta in an emotional video, confirming weeks of rumors.

Kenya and Nene have feuded on the show since season six of RHOA, when Moore refused to attend the wedding of Leakes and Gregg were remarried.

After several arguments, fights and screaming matches, the two haven’t properly spoken since 2017.

Kenya branding her rival's marriage a "joke" amid cheating claims, earlier this year.

The 49-year-old labelled Nene, 53, a ‘hypocrite’ for trying to give her marital advice and thinks she and husband Gregg Leakes, 65, should get a divorce.

In an interview with DailyMail.com, Kenya said: “I believe that her marriage is a joke.

“For her to try and give me advice on a successful marriage when her own is a sham… I believe she's a big hypocrite because she's already divorced [Gregg], and she's stated that, in various interviews, that she does what she wants to do.”

Fans will remember that Nene was not shy either about voicing her opinions on Kenya's troubled marriage to Marc Daly, 49, after the pair filed for divorce last September.

The couple, who share one-year-old daughter Brooklyn, have since got back together and are continuing to work out their issues.

Nene has faced rumors she will not return for season 13 of the reality series after starring on the show since day one.

Nene, 43, shared the surprise message titled “Listen Closely, I got something to tell you” to her YouTube channel.

In the nearly six-minute video, the Georgia native admitted she could not strike a deal with Bravo after a series of “emotional negotiations.”

She choked up as she confirmed: "I have made a hard, difficult decision to not be part of Real Housewives of Atlanta season 13."

As the TV personality appeared more emotional, she reiterated: “It wasn't an easy decision for me. It was hard."

She opened up about the the "tough" process of leaving the show: "Thank you to all of you guys that have been showing me a lot of love and support as of late.

"I feel you, I hear you. I have been on an extremely, extremely long, exhausting, tiring, emotional negotiation.

"There has been a lot of emotion flying on both sides."

Nene joined the show in season one and remained a main cast member until season seven, before appearing as a "friend" on season eight.

She skipped season nine and rejoined as a main housewife for seasons 10-12.
