It seems Kanye West has always had a thing for curvy reality Tv stars - he once made a play for a Real Housewife.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kenya Moore has revealed she was once charmed by West years before he started dating his new fiancee Kim Kardashian, but she was attached to someone else and couldn't even consider romancing the rapper.

She tells Access Hollywood Live, "Kanye likes beautiful women, curvy women... this was a long time ago... He was really sweet when I met him. He seemed very humble. I thought he was a great guy."

The 42-year-old former Miss Usa adds, "He walked over, he was very humble. He spoke to me. He was super nice. We didn’t date, because I was with someone. He was a very charming guy, I can say that. I was very charmed... It was just friendly... It was all above board."

But Moore isn't upset about missing out on a chance to romance West, adding, "I’m very happy that he’s found love and that him and Kim are having a good relationship."
