Kenya Moore: Producers Are Hunting for Her RHOA Replacement

Last year, Kenya Moore made a choice to marry for love and respect her husband’s desire to not become a reality star. That decision may cause her to lose her peach.

Kenya’s tried hard to make up for it, but it looks like she might be fired and replaced with Kim Zolciak. Ouch.

Now it’s really looking like her time as a reality star is over, because producers are apparently on the hunt for fresh talent.

RadarOnline reports that The Real Housewives of Atlanta producers are looking for new Housewives.

Their source dishes on the process:

“They are meeting so many new women and signing them up to film casting reels.”

Some shows have potential contestants film their own casting reels, but they clearly want to see how these women perform with Bravo’s cameras rolling.

“They want new Housewives in Atlanta and they are already testing a few ladies.”

There’s no way of knowing if they’re filming them with each other, with hired actors, or even with existing cast members.

But we imagine that they’ll hold off on introducing them to the main cast until a couple of big decisions are final.

By big decisions, we mostly just mean whether or not Kenya is getting the boot.

“They’re going to make the official call about Kenya and the other ladies right after the reunion.”

That will be a huge decision, for the show but especially for Kenya.

And also for Kim Zolciak who, as we’ve mentioned, has merely been a friend of the Housewives on this past season.

“Kim coming on board full time won’t be determined until after the reunion is taped.”

And a certain friend of NeNe Leakes’ status as a friend of the show may carry on … but they haven’t made that decision.

“And Eva​ Marcille may or may not be brought back yet.”

If you don’t quite remember what landed Kenya Moore in hot water in the first place, wonder no more.

Last year, she had a secret wedding in which she married Marc Daly without the presence of any of Bravo’s cameras or producers.

The whole point of being a Real Housewife is that the show follows your life, particularly huge milestones like a wedding.

Unfortunately for Kenya, the man with whom she fell in love isn’t just camera-shy — he believes that The Real Housewives of Atlanta portrays black men in an unfairly negative light.

His refusal to film with her means that Kenya has less screen time.

Producers have reportedly been considering firing her and replacing her with someone who is committed to the role.

Since then, she’s tried everything to get back on the good side of producers by showing that she doesn’t need her married life to be interesting.

Kenya even went so far as to fake an explosive meltdown while the Housewives were doing charity work.

But it clearly has not been enough.

Kenya couldn’t go on the Barcelona trip.

And the footage of her crying while her husband’s out of town isn’t exactly the sort of Real Housewives content that keeps viewers’ eyes glued to their television sets.

Reportedly, this has already cost her $ 100,000. And she may be booted from the show.

Kenya Moore’s loss could be Kim Zolciak’s gain, as the Don’t Be Tardy star and mother-of-six really wants to be a full Housewife again.

Kim has never, ever shied away from the camera, and that goes for her whole family.

But if producers are looking for new applicants, it may be that they’d prefer a fresher face.

Some say that, if Bravo does fire Kenya, they’ll be punishing her for falling in love. Others say that they’ll be punishing Marc Daly for taking a moral stance against what he believes to be harmful content.

Others, however, say that it’s just good business.

They see Kenya Moore’s behavior as breach of contract or failure to live up to the role of Housewife.

Maybe it’s someone else’s turn to receive a peach.


Farrah Abraham: Insane Treatment of Teen Mom Producers Revealed

Farrah Abraham‘s behind-the-scenes antics are way worse than we know, according to a new report … and that’s really saying something.

I mean, we already knew she was bonkers.

The Ashley’s Reality Roundup compiled a massive investigative report of some of the juiciest moments that never made it to air.

As we know, Teen Mom is unlike many reality TV franchises in that the producers and crew members are often seen on camera.

They play an outsized role in the cast members’ storylines as a result, so there are plenty of times we’ve seen them interact.

Still, there’s a lot of really crazy stuff they don’t show, and no one clashes with the crew more than the OG diva herself, Farrah.

Case in point? Farrah getting fired from Teen Mom OG, which she repeatedly insinuated was because of her outside pursuits.

However, Executive Producer Morgan J. Freeman countered that her treatment of MTV producers and crew may be part of the problem.

“The amount of work that goes into keeping you happy has bubbled up to a point where we have to figure out if we move forward,” he told her.

“Out of nine moms, you’re the only [problem].”  

According to the Ashley, her behavior toward those who film her has been an ongoing, combative situation for years on end.

In short, people want Farrah gone because no one likes her. One longtime Teen Mom OG crew member told The Ashley:

“When Farrah decided she didn’t like someone on her crew or production team, she would tell her producer that they were ‘banned.’”

This meant they were no longer allowed in her residence, and naturally, this could occur at any time and for absurd reasons.

“She legit banned one crew member from the set because she could not pronounce his name!” another crew member said.

“It’s so ridiculous that people thought we were making it up but it 100 percent happened. There may even be footage of it somewhere.”

“The general feeling on Farrah’s shoots were that you didn’t really talk to Farrah unless she spoke to you; otherwise she would get really mad.”

“It was an uncomfortable environment, especially compared to how it is working in some of the other girls’ homes.”

She also refused to work with some producers altogether, and finding those who could tolerate her and vice versa was no easy task.

For instance, Farrah reportedly told crew members she “didn’t like working with straight male producers because they would hit on her.”

She also crazy rules for the crew, including removing the portable toilets on her property … AND not letting the crew use her bathroom.

“There weren’t any public restrooms nearby either, so if you had to go to the bathroom, it kind of halted everything,” said one staffer.

Even though people had to drive somewhere to use the pot, “Farrah was very strict on that; there was no budging, even for an emergency.”

Yes, Abraham will not allow people to use her toilets, or wear shoes in her home, though she reportedly allows her horse in the foyer.

The power-tripping antics don’t stop there, either. When she’s not accusing MTV of hate crimes, she’s trying to run the network.

Farrah once got angry at a crew member and told they were fired, only to be told by the producers that she lacks the authority to do that.

This didn’t stop her from publicly berating a producer at the “New Years Eve” party episode that was shown in December of last year.

Abraham also refused to film with the other girls, all of whom were present, so a special section had to be set up for her and her family. 

On the first day of filming, “She thought she was going straight into filming but everything wasn’t ready yet,” a crew member recalled.

“The poor producer who was with her got it so bad for that.”

“When the producer Walkie-Talkied and asked if there was somewhere Farrah could go until the set was complete, Farrah lost it on her.”

“She screamed at her, yelling, “Do you not know how to do your job? Clearly you don’t so I’ll just stand here until you know how to do your job!”

Totally off her rocker.


Blake Shelton May Quit The Voice and Producers Won’t Miss Him!

The Voice has done a lot for Blake Shelton over the past 8 years. It’s how he and Gwen Stefani met. It’s how people who aren’t big Country fans know who he is. It’s probably how he somehow ended up “Sexiest Man Alive.”

Despite all of that, Blake is reportedly considering quitting the show that has given him so much — including tens of millions of dollars.

Surprisingly, it sounds like producers wouldn’t mind that at all. And it may all come down to Blake Shelton’s behavior when the cameras aren’t rolling.

Blake Shelton has been making headlines since he first hooked up with Gwen Stefani a few years ago.

Their runaway romance began after Gwen shared her story of being cheated on with her costars — she wanted to tell her fellow judges what was going on in her life before they heard speculation in tabloids.

Blake came forward, telling Gwen that he’d just gone through something similar in his own life.

The two of them bonded over that. And then, at some point, they boned. (There have even been reports that Blake Shelton is trying to impregnate Gwen Stefani)

So, money and visibility and alleged sexiness aside, it’s safe to say that The Voice has changed Blake Shelton’s life in a really positive way.

RadarOnline reports that Blake Shelton may walk away from The Voice.

“Blake has made tens of millions of dollars on The Voice and he has gotten insane exposure for his music.”

It’s true. If you’re not a Country fan, you had probably never heard of him before he went on The Voice, if then.

A lot of people never noticed that he existed until he started dating Gwen Stefani.

“But the money and fame have changed Blake.”

It sounds like he’s turned into a real diva when the cameras aren’t rolling.

“He is a cry baby if he doesn’t get his own way and he barks orders at people.”

Oh gosh. That sounds like an unpleasant way to behave.

That source has more to say, which we’ll get to in a moment.

But we should mention that some people’s first reaction will be that “diva behavior” doesn’t really match Blake Shelton’s image.

Or rather that it doesn’t really match Country Music’s image.

The key word there is image. Successful stars are great at managing their images; it is a key to success.

Blake Shelton is a guy who allegedly cheated just as much as Miranda Lambert, but it’s Miranda’s life that was ruined as the Country community sided with him during their split.

So it’s probably fair to say that Blake knows how to portray himself one way to the public and another in private.

Ultimately, Blake Shelton’s decision on whether or not to depart may rest on the shoulders of Adam Levine, who is also considering quitting.

The reason is that Adam’s wife Behati Prinsloo is pregnant with baby #2, and he may want to spend more time with his family.

“If Adam quits, Blake is definitely walking out behind him.”

Interesting. We wonder if Blake would feel insecure about remaining behind if Adam leaves. Certainly, we’ve never heard that there’s any love lost between the two.

Also interesting is that apparently the show itself wouldn’t mind.

“And producers are okay with that.”

For good reason:

“After eight years of Blake and Adam doing this, everyone is just ready for a change.”

It’s hard to parse stories about someone allegedly considering quitting; that could come from offhand remarks, after all.

But though new judges could breathe new life into The Voice, we have to wonder if the change could risk losing them viewers.

After all, despite the shock that most people felt when they saw Blake Shelton absurdly selected as the Sexiest Man Alive, some people clearly feel that way.

And maybe a lot of those people make up The Voice‘s core demographic of viewers.

“If Adam quits, Blake is definitely walking out behind him.”

“And producers are okay with that.”

“After eight years of Blake and Adam doing this, everyone is just ready for a change.”
