Famed chef says 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star is just a friend

A picture might be worth 1,000 words, but a recent photo of Kenya Moore and chef Roblé Ali popping up online does not mean the two are pursuing a romance.

Earlier this week, the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star posted an Instagram photo of the pair, with the caption: "Just love this guy." The picture led some to believe that Moore and Ali had made a love connection.

But a response from Ali proves the two are just friends. He wrote on Instagram:

"She's my friend. That's all. There were 5 people at that dinner. We just took a pic. That's all. I'm not a gay person. Everyone that knows me knows that I am a straight man. If I was gay I'd just be gay and open about it because IDGAF what anybody thinks. A lot of you want me to be gay sooo bad and I don't understand why. Whatever though. I'm not offended there is nothing wrong with being gay. I'm just not. That just let's me know that I am successful because that's the first thing y'all always throw at a successful black man. "Oh he's gay". That's ok. Continue on with your regular lives looking at successful people's lives from the outside and speculating on what's going on with them. Y'all fools got people texting my friends about this silly shit here."

And there you have it.
