Kenya Moore dished to WENDY about her new boyfriend and more. Watch the clip inside and get deets on Nia Long's new job.
Best Man Holiday star Nia Long has landed a leading role on WE tv’s first original scripted drama, “The Divide”. Written by the award-winning and Academy Award and nominated Richard LaGravenese and co-created by and Tony Goldwyn (Scandal) Nia Long will play Billie Page, the hard charging wife of district attorney Adam Page, played by actor Damon Gupton (Prime Suspect, Deadline).
According to the show's press release,
"At its core, The Divide is an exploration of personal morality and how all people – especially ambitious people – struggle with the shades of grey found in the absence of a simple, ordered moral universe. The show probes how truth coexists in the modern justice system alongside ambition, ethics, politics and race. As an impassioned case worker with The Innocence Initiative, Christine Rosa delves into the case of a death-row inmate she believes was wrongly convicted of a young family’s heinous murder 11 years earlier. She chases down new evidence in a search for the truth and confronts an equally passionate district attorney, Adam Page, whose view of justice is colored by shades of grey. Throughout the journey, Christine and Adam’s pasts resurface as they are faced with the question of one man’s guilt or innocence intertwined with their own personal histories."
Production is currently underway in Toronto and ten one-hour episodes will premiere on WE tv in 2014. Nia's also set to star in Tyler Perry's upcoming The Single Mom's Club flick March 2014.

She calls him her "African Prince" but says he's not descended from royalty. Kenya says he's very successful, runs a multi-billion dollar company, and is a "mature" man. When asked if he was over 60, Kenya joked "No...I need somebody with a strong back".
On having a family:

"She wanted to give me up for adoption. She was 16 when she had me. I think they made the decision that she was going to pretend I was never born. From that....she's just operated like that whenver I'm around. I've seen her many times since I was child. I can be in the same room ...and she just pretends I'm invisible. I have room in my heart (for her) because I'm not a monster."
