"I can see why someone would be offended by that," Kenya explains to Andy Cohen on "Watch What Happens Live."

Kenya Moore finally explained that "reassignment surgery" comment she hurled at Kim Zolciak during an explosive "Real Housewives of Atlanta" argument when she appeared on "Watch What Happens Live" Sunday night.

The ladies were at NeNe Leakes' party when Kim began taunting Kenya about her marriage. "Why do you have such a hard on for me? Didn't they cut it off during your reassignment surgery?" Kenya fired back at Kim.

The comment sparked immediate backlash among the LGBTQ community.

"I just think initially, I was just going after Kim," Kenya explained to Andy Cohen. "I was just throwing the kitchen sink at her. I was just incensed by her remarks toward me and her hatred, so I was trying to offend Kim but definitely didn't mean to offend anyone else. I can see why someone would be offended by that."

When Cohen asked if she regretted the comment, Kenya said, "Oh, yeah, I never want to offend anybody."

In addition to suggesting Kim underwent reassignment surgery, Kenya also took a jab at her co-star for "pimping out" her daughter, Brielle Biermann, for John Legend tickets. Back in May, Kim jokingly asked Chrissy Teigen via Twitter who Brielle had to "blow" in order to meet the singer at his Atlanta concert.

Brielle took to Twitter Sunday night to explain that she was the one who "wrote the tweet and pressed send" and that she and her mom "both thought it was funny."

"It's a joke," she insisted. "I'm almost 21. Classless my ass. Y'all have no sense of humor."

"I think if you think that's a joke, something needs to be said about the way your brain functions," Kenya said in response.
