*If you thought Kenya Moore was living the good life, then you may need to double check that.

A source supposedly close to the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” fixture revealed to RadarOnline that Moore is “basically broke” and providing an illusion with the high-priced lifestyle she seemingly lives.

“Kenya is basically broke and she doesn’t have any money,” the source said, adding that her expensive way of life is all smoke and mirrors. “Most of the things that she shows off, like purses or cars, don’t belong to her.”

Speaking of cars, Moore wasn’t above negotiating with a car dealership in Atlanta to loan her an expensive vehicle in exchange for publicity to use during filming. “She was able to pretend she had a high end car and they got the free press,” said the source.

Apparently, “Celebrity Apprentice” wasn’t off limits. According to the source, Kenya had to say yes to the NBC reality show because she turned down a few potential money-making TV appearances. In addition, a movie she was going to make overseas fell through.

“She desperately needs the money and the longer you stay on [Celebrity Apprentice] the more you get paid,” the source shared.

Although Kenya claims she is being supported by her rich African boyfriend, the source shot down the claim and stated that Kenya “needs money to keep up her fake celebrity lifestyle.”

Talk of Kenya being broke comes amid her losing her dog, Velvet, a fight with Porsha Williams on the “RHOA” season 6 reunion and a feud with Brandi Glanville in the upcoming “Celebrity Apprentice” season.

She may be broke, but Kenya is apparently moving forward. During the “RHoA” season 6 finale, Bravo posted a blurb saying the former beauty queen and her “African prince” boyfriend were trying to start a family.

Stay tuned for more twists and turns in Kenya’s life…
