Even though Kenya Moore is out of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, she’s still living her life. Plus, she has a baby on the way.
But apparently people weren’t RSVPing or reserving gifts for her baby shower, which caused Kenya to go into an epic rant.
She feels like she’s being ghosted by her entire social circle, and she might just cancel the party.
Over the weekend, former The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore vented her fury with a not-so-vague post on Instagram.
“#Etiquette101,” Kenya began her diatribe.
“If you cannot attend a monumental life changing event,” she instructed her followers. “It’s nice to send a gift anyway,”
Kenya then asked: “Or it’s about class?”
She did, at least, make it clear that her outrage isn’t over a lack of gifts being purchased — it’s the principle of the matter.
“It’s not about a dollar amount,” she clarified. “It’s to show you care.”
Kenya continued: “The same way the person cared to invite you to share a moment in their life.”
“RSVP literally means RESPOND PLEASE in French,” she educated her fans.
“So if you get an invitation,” she cautions. “Respond with a yes or no if you will be attending.”
it seems very clear that she sending a wildly unsubtle message to her friends and family.
According to Kenya Moore’s BuyBuyBaby registry, discovered by RadarOnline, Kenya had reason to be upset.
She had 73 items on her gift registry.
Of them, at the time that she made that post, not even 5 of them had been selected. That number is reportedly up to 7 as of Wednesday.
Some of Kenya’s suggested gifts were pricey.
She listed a UPPAbaby VISTA 2018 Stroller for $ 929.99 and a Doona Infant Car Seat/Stroller for $ 499.99.
But Kenya didn’t expect thousand-dollar gifts from everyone. She also listed $ 7.99 bib sets and a simple blanket for $ 29.99.
RadarOnline reports that Kenya feels totally snubbed over her baby shower.
“Kenya is devastated none of her real friends are showing up for her and buying gifts off her registry,” the insider explains.
The source goes on to say that Kenya feels “embarrassed,” and “heartbroken” over this slight.
“And,” the insider adds, Kenya is also “mad.”
It’s not like one person forgot to RSVP. She feels like she’s being ghosted by her entire social circle.
“This is a big deal to her,” the source explains.
Of course! She’s waited all her life to find the right man and to have this baby.
“And,” the insider continues. “She feels like those close to her have let her down.”
She feels like they just don’t care about this major milestone in her life.
“She’s beyond furious,” the source dishes.
And it’s possible that, if she feels that no one is coming, she might just cancel.
Kenya’s husband, Marc Daly, has reportedly offered to purchase the entire list of gifts — all 73 items, as an appeasement.
He hopes to “calm” her, the insider explains.
The source adds that if it will “make her happy,” he’d be happy to do it.
Plus, he wants to head off any fighting over this “and keep the shower as planned.”
“Kenya thinks that’s sweet,” the insider admits.
If you sense a but coming, you’re absolutely right.
“But,” the source continues. “She wants an authentic shower.”
If she just wanted a bunch of stuff, she could have gone online and ordered it her own rich self.
Kenya, the insider says, wants a real shower, the kind that comes “with everyone she knows coming to bow down.”
She wants to feel like they’re there to honor her “and tell her how beautiful she looks.”
After her rant about good manners, perhaps she will get her wish.
But she may always feel haunted by the thought that they only came and bought gifts because she shamed them into it.
