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.
