*Vivica A. Fox hit up “The Wendy Williams Show” this week to promote her upcoming movie “Independence Day: Resurgence.” The film hits theaters June 24 and finds Fox reuniting with co-stars from the first film: Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman. During her chat with Wendy, Vivica revealed that it was her tense relationship with reality TV star Kenya Moore that led to her scoring a role on “Empire.”

Fox and Moore were at each other’s throats during season 14 of “Celebrity Apprentice,” and Vivica spoke about their beef during an interview with RadarOnline last year.

“The thing that kills me the most with Kenya, that she said, ‘Vivica has built her career on being ghetto…’ I beg to differ,” Fox says. “I built my career on working with Oscar winners — from Jamie Foxx, to George Clooney, to Anne Hathaway.”

She continued:

“My box office receipts speak for themselves,” she claims. “My brands speak for themselves. My resume speaks for itself. I haven’t build my career on being ghetto and classless,” she says. “But if you need me to get ghetto and set it off on you, I will. I’m no punk. I’m not to be taken lightly.”

When Wendy asked Fox how she landed the role of Cookie’s older sister on “Empire,” the “Sharknado 2” star said Lee Daniels “saw my epic showdown [in the boardroom] with Toxic Trick, and he gave me a call and said ‘B*****tch you gon’ be on my show’.”

“Toxic Trick” is the name Viv called Kenya Moore all last year.

Vivica also told Wendy that she has not seen or spoken to the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star since the “Celebrity Apprentice” finale.

“I’m too busy having a legitimate carer. And making sure people get paid,” Viv said.
