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.

Peter Thomas of RHOA is Getting His Own Reality Show, Folks!

Peter Thomas, Cynthia Bailey’s ex who is no longer on The Real Housewives of Atlanta after their split, may be getting his own reality series.

And no, before you ask, it’s not going to be a fighting show. With or without knives.

But we’re actually pretty excited about it.

Okay, so, just for a refresher:

Peter Thomas was with Real Housewife Cynthia Bailey for ages.

By extension, Peter became part of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Honestly, he’s almost certainly part of what Kenya Moore’s new husband, Marc Daly, is reluctant to appear on The Real Housewives of Atlanta and why Marc says that the show’s portrayal of black men is negative.

Specifically, Peter Thomas’ famous on-camera brawl with Matt Jordan … doesn’t put any demographic’s best foot forward. It doesn’t seem like Peter Thomas’ fault, but we can see how Marc Daly would shy away from appearing on the same program.

As you probably remember (because a fight like that is hard to forget), at a radio station in Charlotte, NC, Matt Jordan was yelling insults at Peter Thomas before rushing him, shoving people out of the way.

Video then shows Matt Jordan attacking Peter Thomas, who at one point displays that he has either grabbed or pulled out a box-cutter knife.

(To be fair, Peter Thomas was clearly being attacked, and also resisted what must have been a powerful urge to use it as a lethal weapon)

Last year, Peter Thomas ended his stint on The Real Housewives of Atlanta when he and Cynthia Bailey got divorced. …

But his career in reality television may not be over just yet.

TMZ reports that Peter Thomas has a spin-off series in the works with Bravo.

Producers tell TMZ that Peter has started filming a pilot for Bravo about him and his club, Club One, in Charlotte.

If you’re getting a Vanderpump Rules vibe from this spinoff, you’re not alone.

Right now, it’s about Peter owning and managing the club in the aftermath of his breakup from Cynthia last year.

(Though TMZ says that it’s highly unlikely that Cynthia Bailey will ever guest star, which totally makes sense)

“In the works” doesn’t mean a done deal (not all pilots get to grow up into a full season) but that’s still exciting.

But that same report says that the network likes what it is seeing, so Peter Thomas’ series sounds likely to get at least one season.

It’s funny, because literally just yesterday I was talking to a friend about how there should be a The Real Housewives of Charlotte.

(Actually it started with me talking about how a mutual friend’s mother would be perfect for The Real Housewives of Asheville, which is also not a show yet, but then we acknowledged that if there were to be a Real Housewives show set in North Carolina, you’d start in Charlotte or Raleigh)

Charlotte is prime territory for a reality series, as it’s NC’s largest city and also one of the largest banking centers in the United States — which means a lot of business interests.

And, by extension, a lot of potential Real Housewives.

(Raleigh would have more along the lines of tech wives, which could also totally work … just saying)

Now, the possibility of Peter Thomas’ show isn’t quite the same as a Real Housewives spin-off, and we get that.

But … it’s sure as hell a step in the right direction, right?

They may be floating this idea to go ahead and gauge public interest.

We say that it sounds interesting enough that we’d like to see how the pilot works.

Peter Thomas is no stranger to reality television, and running a club can be a source of all sorts of potential drama.

Let’s just leave the box-cutters alone as much as possible and avoid fights, though.
