Kenya Moore: Out of The Real Housewives of Atlanta!

The long-gestating rumors have turned into a reality for Kenya Moore.

According to a reliable new report, the veteran reality star will not be returning to The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Chatter over Moore’s role on the Bravo hit has been making the Internet rounds for weeks now.

Heck, there was even talk about a month ago that Moore would be fired by producers because she did not want cameras in the room when she gave birth.

(Indeed, Kenya is pregnant! How exciting, right?!?)

This People Magazine article, however, makes no such grand (and semi-ridiculous) claim.

It explains that Moore could not even technically be fired from the series because she was in the middle of a contract negotiation; she was not actually signed for Season 11.

And that contract negotiation?

It did NOT go smoothly.

An insider tells People that production and Moore both wanted her to return as a full-time Housewife.

However, she wanted more money than the network was offering, while executives did actually want to film all aspects of her life, most notably the time she spends with husband Marc Daly.

Moore stunned fans last summer when she married Daly

… and she also stunned producers, who wanted to film the ceremony. If only they had known about it!

But Kenya and Daly famously got eloped in June of 2017 when the Bravo cameras were down, without telling producers.

He only appeared on The Real Housewives of Atlanta once during season 10, for a brief cameo.

Moreover:

The couple is expecting its first child together (he or she is due before the end of the year), yet Moore kept her entire fertility treatment away from series.

Nor did she participate in last season’s cast trip to Barcelona.

In other words: we sort of get where the show is coming from here.

The whole point of being a cast member is to open up your life to viewers.

You can’t pick and choose what aspects you wish to make public, not when you’re getting paid a ton tobe a Real Housewife.

“Everyone wanted to have Kenya back, but they wanted to have the old Kenya back – the one who isn’t afraid of the cameras,” a source close to production told the aforementioned publication, adding:

“You can’t have secrets and be on reality TV. Especially when other Housewives are showing all of their lives – the good, bad, and the ugly.

“They need to see your life.”

This report concludes that Daly isn’t really interested in being on the show; that Kenya knows her worth; and that she was fine playing hardball.

She can live with this outcome.

“Kenya really loves her life with her husband. She’s always wanted to be a wife and a mother, and she’s put all of her focus into her growing family,” the source explains.

“She’s not going to jeopardize that for some television show.”

Kenya Moore: Fired and Replaced by Marlo Hampton?!

Reports say that The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore is fired because, essentially, her pregnancy timeline doesn’t fit the filming schedule. Among other things.

That has yet to be confirmed, and Kenya had dismissed stories of her firing as “fake news.”

But a new report says that not only has Kenya been given the boot, but we already know her replacement.

RadarOnline reports that one of their The Real Housewives of Atlanta insiders says that Kenya Moore has been fired and replaced.

“Marlo is the front runner for Kenya’s slot,” this source reports.

We already know that Marlo Hampton has been filming with the other stars.

Marlo is a familiar face, and apparently “she’s been told they would love her to have a peach.”

By which they of course mean that they’d like for her to be a full-time Real Housewife. That can be a real game-changer.

Of course, that peach is contingent upon “if she’s able to deliver the drama this summer!” the insider reports.

The source goes on to reveal that Kenya was demoted to a part-time “friend” of the Housewives, but sees it as an insult.

“Her pride won’t allow her to be part-time,” the insider says.

That’s understandable. She’s been one of the show’s stars. It’s hard to go back to playing second fiddle.

The source describes Kenya’s views: “She wants to be a full-time housewife or nothing.”

This production source also says that the show is moving in a new direction.

“The theme of this season,” the insider dishes. “Is ‘new beginnings.’”

That sounds more like a motif than a theme, but let’s not split hairs.

Showrunners don’t just want to rehash recent drama, the source says, “and they want to return to bolder, edgier, and classier storylines and trips this year.”

It sounds like producers have lost interest in Kenya as a star.

“They don’t want Kenya anymore,” the insider claims.

Kenya still has fans, but sometimes, things like her reluctance to film with her husband last season come into play.

And then, as we mentioned, Kenya’s pregnancy drama reportedly doesn’t work with the filming schedule. She is due towards the end of the year.

“This season,” the insider says. “Is about just the core characters and their families.”

And while it might sound like pregnant and newly married Kenya would be a perfect fit, the source reports: “that doesn’t include Kenya.”

Astoundingly, a different source — this one reportedly close to Moore — says that she doesn’t really mind leaving the show.

“Kenya doesn’t want to be on RHOA anymore,” the insider says.

That is interesting, since Kenya silenced trolls with a baby bump photo and went on to say that stories about her being fired were every bit as fake as stories about her pregnancy being fake.

“Truth is,” the source says. “She’s got so much else going on in her life and she’s about to have a baby with the love of her life.”

She’s so busy that she doesn’t want that sweet, sweet Real Housewives paycheck? Wow.

“Unlike the other girls,” the insider says shadily. “The show is all they have.”

That seems a little unfair, but that’s what we’d expect from a source close to Kenya, we suppose.

The source says: “Kenya feels like she’s outgrown the drama and believes she’s bigger than the pettiness of the show.”

Reports say that Kenya has been fired or demoted or both, and Kenya has strongly implied that these are fake stories.

In fact, Kenya’s most recent photo on Instagram is of her with fellow Real Housewife, Kandi.

So … what is the truth?

It may be that producers and Kenya are all weighing their options and will reach a decision soon.

Or maybe the clock has run out, and Kenya’s decisions have made that choice for her.

We’ll find out in due time.

Kenya Moore: FIRED Because She Won’t Give Birth on Camera?!

Earlier this month, Kenya Moore silenced trolls and decried false stories about her, her husband, and her pregnancy.

But … was part of that just bluster to cover up a huge problem with her reality career?

A new report says that Kenya is not only no longer a Real Housewife, but that she’ll be lucky if she makes “Friend of the Housewives” status.

RadarOnline reports that The Real Housewives of Atlanta stars were spotted filming without Kenya Moore.

Specifically, their sources spotted NeNe Leakes, Porsha Williams, Marlo Hampton, Cynthia Bailey, and even Eva Marcille.

(Eva, as you may recall, is not only a new mom but a new full-time Real Housewife)

These women were all spotted at Novikov in Miami.

Kenya was, they report, nowhere to be seen.

According to RadarOnline‘s source, these stars were in town to support NeNe Leakes’ fashion show and Swagg Boutique store opening.

The source described their dining choices, as well — something that may be significant.

“The ladies dined on king crab legs,” the insider reveals. “With honey truffles, caviar, and wagyu steaks along with Wasabi martinis.”

That definitely sounds … opulent.

(We will get into why the menu may help to explain everything in a moment)

RadarOnline has reported that Kenya’s reality career is in danger, saying: “Kenya’s status as a ‘friend’ is in jeopardy because she is holding up the deal.”

“Kenya was told she would have to take a drastic pay cut,” the insider adds.

That is interesting to hear, given that Kenya has gone above and beyond to deny rumors that her reality career is on the line.

The source continues, claiming: “And there was no guarantee about how many episodes she would appear in, or if she would appear in any at all.”

Kenya didn’t like it when fans questioned her pregnancy and she eventually showed evidence that she really is with child.

Will she do the same again for her status as a Real Houswife? Or is this rumor true?

Kenya Moore Early Ultrasound

Kenya not only shared a photo of her baby bump to silence doubters, she later went on to let fans see part of one of her early ultrasounds from the doctor’s office.

But this pregnancy might help explain away her absence from that dinner in Miami.

See, it includes multiple seafood items. The women were also drinking martinis.

Guess what pregnant woman are not advised to have for dinner? Any of that.

So, though we know that RadarOnline has multiple sources, some might suggest that the simplest explanation for Kenya’s absence from dinner was that she didn’t want to be surrounded by costars eating and drinking things that she herself cannot.

But RadarOnline reports that an insider claims that she’s basically done on the show. 

“At this point,” the insider claims. “The show is ready to move along without her at all.”

Why? Well … timing.

The source alleges: “Bringing Kenya back full-time would be useless.”

That sounds kind of mean to us. But they just mean that, allegedly, Kenya’s pregnancy is less than optimal for the show’s schedule.

“Her pregnancy timeline conflicts with the production schedule,” the insider explains. “She said she’s due in November/December but production wraps in October.”

Hmmm. That’s definitely something to consider.

Still, perhaps Kenya can prove to producers that she’s worth her (pregnant) weight in cash even if her childbirth happens during hiatus.

Kenya Moore Silences Trolls With Baby Bump Pic!

After some conspiracy theorists accused Kenya Moore of faking her pregnancy and even her marriage, the RHOA star deleted a sweet photo of her with her husband.

But Kenya isn’t backing down, and now she’s silencing those hateful rumors in a more proactive way.

She’s posted a photo of her baby bump. Take a look!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore has had to grapple with some nasty “theories,” even more than your average reality star.

Some so-called “fans” have accused her of faking her pregnancy and marriage … all evidence to the contrary.

The reason for these accusations basically comes down to the widespread reports that Kenya’s job was in jeopardy last year after her secret wedding to Marc Daly.

(Marc also avoided Bravo’s cameras for a long time, reportedly over objections to how black men are portrayed on the series)

Some fans were convinced that Kenya would do anything in order to stay relevant and interesting enough to stay a Real Housewife and avoid losing her peach.

Those accusations spilled into comments under her social media posts, and seemed to have her feeling rattled. That is understandable.

Hopefully, now that the world has seen this photo, Kenya can continue her pregnancy in peace.

Kenya’s baby bump isn’t the most pronounced that we’ve ever seen, but it’s there.

Remember, we only learned that Kenya was pregnant … gosh, it hasn’t even been three whole months yet. And she said herself that she announced it very early.

Kenya included a caption, writing:

“Won’t He do it? #godswill #love #hope #faith #family #God #peace”

Kenya and Marc used IVF in order to conceive, but it sounds like Kenya is relying upon her faith to see her through what could potentially be a risky pregnancy.

Having your first child at 49 can be a big deal, folks.

Kenya’s fans and followers took to the comments to express and share their excitement.

“I’m excited for you can’t wait to see your baby!!!!”

Others were more succinct, writing:

“Awww congratulations queen.”

Some fans immediately thought about those who had trolled Kenya’s comments with accusations that her pregnancy was just manufactured so that Bravo would keep her on the show.

“I guess They can All go find Someone Else to Hate on Now.”

Yep.

Some of her fans were positively jubilant … about her very effective shut-down of haters and trolls.

“Twirl On ‘THAT’ All You haters. SHE GOT ALL OF YOU GOOD. HAHA.”

That said, some people did decide to post comments that either betrayed their ignorance … or were very shady.

“Are you with child?”

It’s been common knowledge that Kenya is pregnant since the news broke back in April, but … some fans can miss whole chunks of someone’s life in the blink of an eye.

Still, it could be shade over her tiny baby bump.

(Baby bumps grow over time, folks)

Kenya is very sensitive when certain aspects of her family life are the topic of unfounded rumors.

This is her first pregnancy. Given her age (not that she’s old — just old to be pregnant), it’s entirely understandable that she’s touchy about it.

She’s also happily maried to Marc, even though some people have tried to cast doubt on that, too.

We hope that the trolls will give Kenya some peace now that she’s put her baby bump on display for all to see.

Kenya Moore Deletes Baby Bump Photo as Fans Question Her Pregnancy

As much as Kenya Moore has slammed divorce speculation, some fans still think that Kenya is faking her marriage and her pregnancy.

These ridiculous rumors are clearly getting under Kenya’s skin.

In fact, the RHOA star was apparently so upset that she deleted a sweet photo of her and her husband … possibly because he wasn’t wearing his ring.

The photo that we have for you below looks totally innocuous.

But Kendra has deleted it from her Instagram page without warning or explanation.

In it, she and husband Marc Daly are enjoying a relaxing evening of golf.

Some fans noted that Kenya appears to be showing a bit of a baby bump. Others noted that she appears to be concealing it.

There was some whining in the comments about Marc’s wedding ring being off of his finger — he removed it to play golf, folks.

There is nothing in this image that should lead to it being deleted from social media, and yet … it is gone.

On Friday, Kenya addressed the conspiracy theorists who seemed to believe that she was fabricating her pregnancy or even her marriage.

“@bet @celebrity_insider_org @theinquisitr shame on you for constantly regurgitating the slanderous fake news from #radaronline.”

She then lists some of the stories that have gotten under her skin.

“Fake Husband, Fake Pregnancy, Fake Boyfriends, Fake Storyline, FIred, Fake Divorce.”

She hates false stories and she hates seeing them recycled.

“At least be effing original with your hateful lies.”

She says that she understands being a subject of speculation, but that she wants her family left out of it.

“I’m used to you all making up stories to get clicks off my name but LEAVE MY FAMILY ALONE.”

She signed off, writing:

“#thatamrsdaly2you #blacklove”

Forget the conspiracy theories. Kenya is pregnant, folks.

Some fans weren’t sure if she was really pregnant when she made the announcement at the reunion.

“We will definitely be welcoming a boy or girl in late this year.”

When Andy asked about her due date, Kenya grew a little shy.

“Well, I don’t want to talk about the details because I’m just still — I’m just still very nervous about everything.”

This will be her first child. Notably, Kenya is 47 years old.

“And I just want to get past a safe place.”

Very understandable.

Fans have been on the lookout for Kenya’s baby bump for a while, without much luck — she’s been, well, a little shy.

This has led to all sorts of speculation, including the idea that perhaps she is using a surrogate.

Kenya saw that and responded on Twitter.

“No surrogate but maybe my next one.”

Surrogates — or probably a gestational carrier, in this case — are a smart, though expensive, choice for people whose pregnancies may be particularly risky.

When fans asked why she is being so shy, Kenya wrote on Instagram:

“I was not planning on speaking about my pregnancy this early as due to my age I’m high risk.”

She hastily deleted the comment.

Does Kenya deleting the golfing photo mean that there’s trouble in her marriage or with her pregnancy?

We can’t rule it out, but … there may be a simpler explanation.

Maybe she got tired of seeing all of the hateful comments and the spiteful speculation about her husband and her pregnancy — two major sources of happiness in her life.

She may be a public figure and a reality star, but that doesn’t mean that she has to listen to people’s chatter about her on her own Instagram page.

Right now, Kenya has to do what’s best for her health and for her baby. She can delete whatever she wants.

Kenya Moore Sparks Divorce Rumors, Then SLAMS Split Speculaton

Recently, speculation has been swirling that RHOA star Kenya Moore is faking her pregnancy and her marriage.

When Kenya posted and then deleted words that made fans wonder if she regretting her wedding, the rumors only magnified.

Kenya has seen the speculation — and she’s not mincing words with her clapback.

RadarOnline reports that Kenya Moore posted this ominous message to Instagram:

“Don’t love too soon. Don’t trust too fast.”

Coming only about a year after her secret wedding to Marc Daly, some wondered if she had regrets.

“Don’t judge too soon. Don’t quit too early.”

Others wondered if this was simply good advice.

“Don’t expect too high. Don’t talk too much.”

(I’ve never been good at following that last piece of advice)

The odd thing is that there is no sign of that post on Kenya’s Instagram right now.

She reportedly deleted it, replacing it with a photo in which her wedding band is clearly visible.

Some wondered if she and Marc had been fighting.

There have been absurd rumors that she is faking her pregnancy in order to stay relevant — rumors that we have already ridiculed for their absurdity.

(Can a pregnancy be faked? Sure! But it defies reason to believe that Kenya is doing that simply because she isn’t pushing her baby bump in everyone’s faces)

Did Kenya post that after an argument with Marc and then switch it out after they made nice?

Or is it more likely that she posted some sage advice and then deleted it when people started reading way, way too much into it?

Either way, Kenya is clearly pissed about the speculation and rumors about her marriage and pregnancy, because she posted this: 

“#FAKENEWS”

Oh boy, remember when this term was only used to apply to deliberately manufactured “news” stories in the political arena? Genuine hoaxes like Pizzagate?

“@bet @celebrity_insider_org @theinquisitr shame on you for constantly regurgitating the slanderous fake news from #radaronline.”

Well, discussing an existing story isn’t shameful. You can’t debunk something without addressing it.

“Fake Husband, Fake Pregnancy, Fake Boyfriends, Fake Storyline, FIred, Fake Divorce.”

To be fair, there were genuinely plenty of people — us included — who were truly worried that Kenya would be fired from RHOA over her marriage.

Kenya Moore slams fake news

Kenya apparently wishes that sites would totally fabricate things about her.

“At least be effing original with your hateful lies.”

This just in: Kenya Moore has to be careful to avoid mishaps, as the Illuminati cloning facility that she uses to stay young-looking has been destroyed in the Kilauea eruption.

Would that be a satisfactory fake story? (We kid, of course — everyone knows that the Illuminati Deep State Lizard people keeping their cloning facilities on the moon)

“I’m used to you all making up stories to get clicks off my name but LEAVE MY FAMILY ALONE.”

Some celebrities have topics that really get under their skin. This is clearly Kenya’s.

“#thatamrsdaly2you #blacklove”

Obviously, fans want to know about Kenya’s love life. It’s only natural — you see her on television and social media.

But there are lines that we should probably avoid crossing.

We would never want to hurt anyone’s feelings, of course.

And ugly rumors can be extremely hurtful. Kenya must be feeling sensitive about this issue, and that is absolutely her right.

Kenya Moore Accused of Faking Pregnancy AND Marriage! What?!

Kenya Moore went on a date night and she shared a photo of herself with her husband, Marc Daly. And then all hell broke loose in the comments.

Some followers wanted to know why Marc isn’t wearing his ring. Those comments were enough to get Kenya to actually respond.

And others questioned why pregnant Kenya Moore doesn’t seem to be showing a baby bump.

Kenya shared this cuddly photo of the two of them.

She provided a little context in her caption:

“#DateNight with bae [red heart emoji]”

She also added:

“(Bae’s ring is on the table thank you for asking)”

When a celebrity has updated their captions to answer a recurring question from fans, you know that the comments are going to be interesting.

Kenya’s followers did not disappoint.

“I thought you were pregnant? Oh I get it #TryingToStayRelevant”

If you’ll recall, Kenya said that she and Marc are expecting a child — even though she’s 47.

“Where’s the baby bump? Maybe surrogate???”

That’s always possible, though it’s not the case for Kenya, as we’ll explain later.

“Where’s your baby bump?”

She’s clearly hugging her husband. That’s not going to put her bump on display.

Then there’s this ominous af comment:

“What we say and do, will be returned to us.”

That unexplained comment is going to keep us awake at night.

“I thought she was pregnant she don’t look pretty on this picture.”

Rude!

“A surrogate mother is a blessing congrats!!! Your lil one will be precious.”

She’s … not doing a surrogacy, and it’s weird that people assume that she is.

“Where is the pregnant belly?”

Right there, just not being emphasized by her pose, folks.

“I thought she was pregnant. What happened?”

Nothing.

“I THOUGHT YOU WERE PREGNANT???????????????”

We did not in any way exaggerate the number of question marks in that person’s all-caps comment.

“Her ass looks pregnant.”

RUDE!!

Kenya was also bombarded with questions about the location of her husband’s ring, which she answered in her own comment.

“Jeez on the table. He can’t swing the club with it.”

Rings can get in the way, folks.

Kenya also had her defenders in the comments, of course.

“So happy for you both! Who cares about a ring!! Love has no boundaries held within a ring. Be free and who cares what other people think!!”

When she offered that explanation, she was told that it was not owed.

“You do not have to explain anything.”

Others shot down the absurd rumor that she was somehow faking a pregnancy.

“I see the bump…y’all blind!”

Fans wished her the best.

“So happy for you don’t let Social media mess up your relationship.”

One of Kenya’s defenders left a comment so entertaining that we absolutely had to share it with you.

Here, she smacks down one of Kenya’s critics:

“Wow no child left behind law helped you move right along didn’t it? Anyone who still menstrates can have a baby. Medicine can also assist in having a baby. For example, IVF treatments is one. Please educate yourself before making yourself look like a PURE FOOL.”

Wonderful.

Kenya, by the way, took to Instagram stories to make one thing perfectly clear:

“No I don’t have a surrogate.”

Let celebrities share photos of themselves, please, without harassing them in the comments.
