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.

Kenya Moore as a Blonde

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.

Kenya

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.

Kenya Moore Baby Bump Photo

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.

Marlo Hampton

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."

Kenya Moore and Marc Daly, Date Night

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.

Kenya Moore, Glowing Selfie

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)

Kenya Moore, Eyebrows on Fleek

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.

Kenya Moore and Marc Daly, Date Night

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!

Kenya Moore at the Reunion

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 Moore Baby Bump Photo

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 Moore and Marc Daly, Date Night

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.

Marc Daly and Kenya Moore, Wedding Kiss

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 Moore, Eyebrows on Fleek

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.

Kenya Moore, Eyebrows on Fleek

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.

Kenya Moore and Marc Daly, Date Night

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"

Marc Daly and Kenya Moore, Wedding Kiss

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.

Kenya Moore and Marc Daly for "Bae Day"

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.

Kenya Moore Wedding Photo

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.

Marc Daly and Kenya Moore, Wedding Kiss

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)

Kenya Moore and Marc Daly

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?

Kenya Moore and Marc Daly for "Bae Day"

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"

Kenya Moore and Marc Daly, Date Night

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 Moore and Marc Daly, Date Night

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.

Kenya Moore at the Reunion

"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!

Kenya Moore and Marc Daly

"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!!

Marc Daly and Kenya Moore

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."

Kenya Moore and Marc Daly for "Bae Day"

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.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 Episode 19 Recap: Is Porsha Williams a Villain?

We think it's fair to say that The Real Housewife Season 10 has been one of the most toxic in franchise history. 

We've had some of the biggest bust-ups to date, shifting alliances and some of the cast members just being horrible people (we're looking at you NeNe Leakes.)

On The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 Episode 19, it was time to sit down with the cast and host Andy Cohen to unpack the wild season. 

If you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online, you will know that Porsha has found herself immersed in some of the biggest fights of the season. 

As such, she was put on blast by practically the entire cast. Seriously, we felt a little for her. 

Kandi opened up about just how toxic things had become between her and Porsha and how she would never be able to be friends with her. 

Kandi Burruss Reunites

The date rate rumor represented a huge turning point for their friendship. It was the thing that sunk it and proved there was no way they could ever be friends. 

Kandi felt like Porsha's myriad of apologies throughout the series have been a little too much. Kandi seemed to only want an apology from Porsha that meant something. 

Porsha felt like she had been put on blast one too many times and that she was not ready to go through all of that again. 

Sheree was also against Porsha because of what happened between with Shamea. Porsha previously apologized to Sheree for telling Shamea she should not be trusted. 

But Porsha tried to come up with excuses for why she said it. This was a stark contrast from when the cameras were rolling, and she was the first one to apologize. 

Porsha Williams Image

While Porsha was being used as the scapegoat in the situation, Sheree was also put on blast for everything that happened. 

Case in point: Sheree was already in the know about the cockroach video Kim had in her inventory ready to use against NeNe. 

But Andy seemed to be shushing her because he's saving Kim for the second week of the reunion. 

Then there was Kenya who may well have saved her role on the show. She's been so adamant about keeping her husband, Marc Daly, away from the cameras. 

She revealed that she is expecting a child. It's funny because there was a good chance Kenya was being let go after this season. 

“We will definitely be welcoming a boy or girl in late this year,” Moore said in a chat with Andy. 

Kenya Moore at the Reunion

“Oh my God, I said that! I don’t want to talk about the details because I’m still very nervous about everything, so I want to get past a safe place,” she continued. 

Now, her return is all but guaranteed. While everyone loved the twist about the pregnancy, Kenya admitted she wanted to keep Marc away from the cameras to preserve the wedding. 

In all honesty, this first episode was low-key, and there were not big events aside from the pregnancy reveal. 

What did you think of the episode?

Sound off below!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta continues next Sunday. 

Kenya Moore: Pregnant with First Child! At Age 47!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunited on stage last night.

The major news to come out of this Bravo special was the bombshell that Kenya Moore's egg was recently united with Marc Daly's sperm, however.

That's right... the veteran reality star is pregnant!

Kenya Moore at the Reunion

Moore, who is 47 years old, made this unexpected and exciting confirmation early on the Real Housewives reunion special Sunday evening.

“We will definitely be welcoming a boy or girl in late this year,” Moore said in response to a question from host Andy Cohen, adding:

“Oh my God, I said that! I don’t want to talk about the details because I’m still very nervous about everything so I want to get past a safe place.”

Moore's co-stars seemed legitimately stunned by the news.

It was a rare example of candor and of natural reactions on a reality TV program, culminating in a round of applause from everyone

After receiving congratulations, Kenya said she simply wants “a healthy baby." The gender is unimportant.

Yay for Kenya!

Moore and Daly got married last June in St. Lucia.

The wedding came as a total surprise both to fans and also to Bravo producers.

There was actually chatter shortly afterward that Kenya would be fired because she didn't give the show a chance to film her wedding.

But here she still is, fulfilling a goal Kenya said she and her husband discussed from the beginning.

"We both want to start a family and soon - like, right away,” Moore told People Magazine last summer. “We both want a child.”

In December, amid reports that she was pregnant, Kenya told Us Weekly:

"Let’s just say that we definitely want to have a child. I’m not opposed to treatments, so I wouldn’t be ashamed of that. Let’s just hope in the next year we will see some results from whatever I’m doing."

So we guess this news really should not have come as a shock after all.

Kenya Moore Wedding Photo

Added the 47-year old at the time, first about herself:

"Everyone tells me I will be an amazing mom because I’m very nurturing and I’m very patient. Look how I am with my little puppies.

"I treat them like they will break. I spoil my little puppy babies. Everyone says I will be a great mom and I’m hoping I will be too."

And then about Daly:

“He wants to be the kind of father that is really involved. He dreams of driving a minivan. I’m like, who dreams of driving a minivan? He’s so excited. I think it’s cute.

"The minivan or a Ferrari? Minivan might attract housewives, real housewives, and a Ferrari might attract the wrong type of women who might think he’s single."

The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs on Bravo Sundays at 8/7c.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion Trailer: Kim Zolciak Storms Off!

NeNe Leakes had previously teased that there would be major drama at The Real Housewives of Atlanta's reunion special, and that pretty much everyone had a bone to pick with Kim Zolciak.

As you're about to see in the video below, she wasn't lying.

Take a look at this explosive teaser trailer.

Kim zolciak andy cohen and nene leakes

If you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online, you know that this season was bonkers.

Little details -- like Kandi and NeNe believing that Kim Zolciak is too dependent upon her husband, Kroy Biermann -- were overshadowed by huge scandals, on and off camera.

One major source of drama was Kenya's storyline being more or less nonexistent this season, after her secret wedding was followed by her camera-shy husband's refusal to show up on camera.

Until he surprised her, and the audience, with a special appearance. Viewers weren't just treated to seeing a husband surprise his wife. They got to watch Marc Daly save his wife's job.

(Probably)

Kim zolciak puts her hand up

But while Kim Zolciak wasn't front and center during this season -- remember, she was reduced to a Friend of the Housewives status -- it looks like she's grabbing a lot of attention during the reunion special.

During the trailer that you can watch below, Kim says:

"Jealousy's a disease, get well soon bitch."

That line sounds pre-packaged in an effort to be quotable, but you don't get to decide to become a meme, Kim.

She goes on to defend herself and her status, saying:

"I don't have my own show for no reason."

Nene leakes reaction image

Meanwhile, it seems like every other Housewife wants a piece of Kim Zolciak.

Kenya Moore calls out Kim's wig, which seems like an odd move to make -- plenty of folks wear wigs, especially on reality television.

But maybe faking those meltdowns in an effort to stay interesting this season exhausted her barbs.

The others, however, were out for blood.

Kandi Burruss criticizes Kim for lingering on "the sidelines, watching us like a f--king fan" when there's drama among the Housewives.

But it's NeNe who really gives it to Kim.

Kim zolciak reaction image

NeNe Leakes goes off on Kim, lecturing her with her arm in a state of constant motion. More than once, viewers can see NeNe rise up out of her chair.

Seriously, this looks brutal.

NeNe yells "I don't give a f--k about you!" ... and then we see Kim Zolciak become so distressed that she gets up and walks off of the stage.

She's upset that NeNe couldn't stay in her own chair, but there's more to it than that.

Later -- and we don't know how much later, but Kim isn't wearing the same outfit -- we see Kim tearfully speaking to Andy Cohen.

"I'm so upset with you, everyone of those motherf--kers on this couch owe this world a f-cking apology."

Kim zolciak lectures through tears

There's a lot more going on here.

For starters, you're going to hear some banter about the idea of Andy Cohen prepping to deliver a baby if necessary ... with some jokes at his expense.

It is rumored that Kenya Moore may announce that she is pregnant at the reunion, but we'll wait and see if things really go down like that.

You're going to see a lot of conflicts here, folks. And, as NeNe had previously teased, everybody goes in on Kim Zolciak.

The reunion special airs on Sunday, April 8th, but you can see the trailer right here:

The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 Episode 17 Recap: Shade Will Be Thrown

Marc Daly is real, you guys!

On The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 Episode 17, we finally got to lay eyes on Kenya Moore's husband, and we're amazed about it. 

If you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online, you will know that Kenya's marriage has been the subject of much scrutiny because of it all happening in secret. 

Sheree Whitfield, The Real Housewives of Atlanta

Her pals have wondered whether there was more to it than met the eye, but Kenya kept countering that her man was just not into the way men were portrayed on the franchise. 

Kenya's storyline has been lacking on The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10, and we would not be surprised if she were officially fired. 

In any case, she finally got something to do this week. Remember the PSA about domestic violence from Cynthia Bailey? Well, Kenya was given the opportunity to speak out about it during a screening party. 

This involved bringing some survivors out, glamming them up and parading them around for the Bravo cameras. As expected, all of the housewives showed up for the festivities. 

It's fantastic that these women can put all of the drama aside to come together for a good cause. Maybe there's hope for them yet.

Sheree was quick to question where Marc was, and Kenya looked like she wanted to burst into tears. She blatantly said her husband could not book a plane ticket. 

In one of the biggest shockers in recent memory, Marc brazenly walked through the doors of the event just as Kenya was giving her speech. 

Sheree continued to ruffle feathers by making comments about his nose ring. Yes, Sheree is one of the wittiest housewives out there. 

Marc wasted no time in letting the others know just how proud he was of his wife, but he looked like he was talking through gritted teeth. 

It felt unnatural and as though the scenes had been manipulated. Yes, we know all of them are, but these looked more so. 

Kenya Moore and Marc Daly

Elsewhere, Kandi and Todd chatted about the whole fiasco with NeNe and the rape comment. Kandi wanted NeNe to tour with her, but she struggled to make a case for it. 

Todd admitted that he thought it was definitely a joke, and alluded to the fact that the President of the United States makes terrible comments all the time and he's still the President. 

Maybe NeNe will get to stick around for the tour after all. 

Then there was Sheree, who was pressing ahead with her relationship with Tyrone aka the man in prison. Her daughter was not amused and lashed out with a string of words that gave Sheree food for thought.

How long will it take for Sheree to realize that the relationship could all be a sham? In any case, we're glad Sheree has a storyline this season, but she can do so much better. 

What did you think of all the action?

Sound off below. 

The Real Housewives of Atlanta continues Sundays on Bravo.

Kenya Moore: Watch My Husband Save My Job!

For a while now, fans of The Real Housewives of Atlanta have worried that Kenya Moore is fired.

But reports that producers were looking for her replacement have now been cast into doubt because the impossible has happened ... and it might just save her job.

Her camera-shy husband, Marc Daly, is appearing on the show. And we have the clip, below.

Kenya moore and marc daly

In the The Real Housewives of Atlanta clip that you're about to watch below, Kenya Moore is explaining to her fellow Housewives that her husband will not be joining them.

Her excuse -- for the man who has famously refused to appear on the series -- is that he is working.

"Oh Lord," she laments. "He's working and he was just like, 'I can't, but I send you my love.'"

She goes on to say that he's effectively helpless without her.

"He cannot get on a plane by himself, girl. I need to book his ticket, I need to pick out his clothes."

We're talking about a grown man, but a lot of wives do that sort of labor for their husbands because of complicated cultural factors related to gender roles.

Marc daly and kenya moore

Earlier this season, Kenya and her fellow Real Housewives filmed a domestic violence PSA.

The clip below is taken from the viewing event, and Kenya welcomes the audience, saying:

"Hi! Thank you guys for coming out tonight."

She continues, smiling at the crowd while wearing a sensational white dress.

"Personally speaking, I just want to thank the people that hold me up daily."

As she continues to speak, the camera pans over and focuses on a door, through which enters ... her husband, Marc Daly.

This is his first appearance on The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Kenya moore wedding picture

In 2017, Kenya Moore married Marc Daly in a secret wedding ceremony. Not even producers knew about it until after the fact.

That blew up in Kenya's face, leaving fans wondering when she would be fired for hiding such a major life event from a show that is supposed to follow her through her life's ups and downs and, yes, her major milestones.

What's more is that Marc Daly refuses to appear on the series. He believes that The Real Housewives of Atlanta portrays black men in a negative light and that perpetuating this harmful image hurts the community at large.

(He's not alone. People have written scholarly essays on this topic, citing specific examples of how white men are often uplifted as providers and partners while cameras and editing do nothing of the sort of black men)

Since then, she has been on thin ice with Bravo, and had to resort to faking explosive meltdowns in order to keep herself "interesting" enough to remain on the show.

But it hasn't looked like it would be enough. Marc Daly showing up on camera is a real game-changer.

So, on the surface, the clip that you'll watch below is about Kenya's husband surprising her when she had believed that he would be unable to make it to an event.

And, of course, about her being able to introduce him to her costars.

On a deeper level, however, this scene and big reveal is about Marc stepping out to support his wife and making her and her career his priority.

Obviously, he must have talked about this with producers in advance. It does not appear that any of the show's stars knew about this surprise beforehand.

Will this be enough for Kenya to remain on the show and continue collecting that nice Real Housewives salary?

Fans hope so.

it seems unlikely that Marc would step in with a career-saving move on his wife's behalf just for the network to send her packing.

What's more ... maybe Marc decided that he could be the role model that he wants for people to see on the show.

The full episode airs Sunday, March 25th.

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.

Kenya Moore on the Red Carpet

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."

Kenya Moore and Marc Daly for "Bae Day"

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.

Marc Daly and Kenya Moore

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 Chills

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.

Kenya Moore: FIRED and Getting Replaced By Kim Zolciak?

The Real Housewives of Atlanta is apparently due for a major shake-up.

Accusations claim that Kenya Moore faked an explosive meltdown to avoid getting fired, but it looks like it was all in vain.

Because she's reportedly getting canned. And she's going to hate who's taking her place. Oh, wait -- she already does.

Kenya Moore Chills

Kenya Moore has been in hot water with producers and the network ever since her secret wedding to Marc Daly.

Imagine, if you will, that one of the stars of Finding Bigfoot actually found a bigfoot and just decided to keep it secret and didn't tell anyone else or invite cameras along, and instead just kept their woodsy version of The Shape of Water quiet for a while.

Well, that's the cryptozoological equivalent of what Kenya did.

She's a reality star. The whole point of that is that major life events like weddings and children get documented for the cameras. She's compensated as a The Real Housewives of Atlanta star with a huge paycheck.

Since her husband refuses to go on camera, she's been keeping an entire facet of her life off of the camera.

Kenya Moore Selfie

RadarOnline reports that Kenye Moore is finally getting fired over her unseen husband.

According to their source:

"Kenya is not going to be back after she refused to let her husband be on the show."

To be fair, though producers are understandably unhappy with Kenya, who literally signed up to be a reality star and share her life with the world, this isn't entirely on her.

Marc Daly is the one who refuses to appear on the show. Kenya's done her best to stay interesting enough to keep her peach, even storming out in a rage at a hurricane relief event.

But as much as Kenya's likely to hate leaving, she's going to hate her replacement even more.

Kim Zolciak with Low Cut Top

According to RadarOnline's source, Kim Zolciak will be returning from "friend of the Housewives" status to being a full Housewife again.

"Kenya’s going to be replaced with Kim, who will most likely come back to the show as a full-time housewife and not just a friend."

Earlier reports that Kim Zolciak was begging to return to RHOA indicate that Kim was probably delighted.

According to this source, their reason for inviting Kim back is because she's a proven success.

"Viewers know Kim. And they want someone to mix it up with the ladies. Someone new like Kim Fields did not work."

What's more -- Kim Zolciak isn't shy about showing her whole, huge, family.

"Kim will easily step up the drama that Kenya refused to give"

Kenya Moore and Marc Daly for "Bae Day"

From the outset, fans knew that Kenya Moore had to choose between her husband and her job.

As we mentioned, this all stems from Marc Daly's refusal to let RHOA's cameras film him.

His reason is apparently that he believes that The Real Housewives of Atlanta portrays black men in a negative light while portraying white men as better partners, husbands, and fathers.

He has a point -- not only is a lot of reality television built around editing, but it's not like Real Housewives are chosen as representative samples of communities. Producers can cherrypick, consciously or subconsciously.

And Marc Daly isn't the only person who's noticed this. Entire scholarly articles have been dedicated to the topic (yes, really), and on a broader level, many have observed that reality television tends to paint black people in particular in a negative light.

Of course, none of that explains why Marc Daly and Kenya Moore decided to tie the knot despite this.

Kenya Moore Wedding Photo

As with any unconfirmed report, we should take this one with a grain of salt.

People have been wondering since last summer if Kenya Moore would get the boot over this. It's no surprise that word is going around that she is, but right now, it's not confirmed.

Similarly, Kim Zolciak is one of the most recognizable Housewives on RHOA, but that doesn't mean that she's actually coming back. Even though she really wants to.

A lot can change leading up to an announcement. Maybe Kenya -- or Marc -- will find a way to convince producers to let her stay on.

Kenya Moore: Faking Meltdown to Save Her Job?!

On a recent episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, viewers saw Kenya Moore storm out in a rage

Tantrums aren't exactly a foreign concept when it comes to Real Housewives, but the stars were supposed to be doing charity work. And Kenya made things all about her.

Except that a report claims that Kenya did this very deliberately -- for a very savvy reason that has nothing to do with angry feelings.

Kenya Moore on the Red Carpet

So, you know how the Real Housewives were in Houston doing hurricane relief and Kenya Moore had her own, secret fundraiser?

That episode led to a freakout.

"I’m done with this. I didn’t come here to be constantly dragged in the mud!"

Some would question what any Real Housewife would expect. That's sort of what happens any time that a bunch of them are in the same place.

A producer replied: "But Kenya, that’s what they’re feeling."

Kenya Moore in White

That was apparently the wrong thing to say.

Kenya Moore exploded: "I don’t give a f--k! I don’t give a f--k about any of them b---hes."

Well, that certainly is ... charming.

Her angry rant continued as she flipped off a producer.

"That whole table is stupid ass s--t! Every time I do something positive it turns into some bulls--t."

Some might argue that this is, in fact, sort of the premise of reality television.

Kenya Moore Chills

RadarOnline reports that, per their source, Kenya Moore's tantrum was contrived and calculated by her, with a purpose.

"Kenya didn't want to film for the three or four hours that all of the ladies were doing in Houston after doing hurricane relief."

Well, plenty of people have been in situations where they didn't want to be wherever they were, but usually we're talking about children pretending to be sick after 6 hours at the zoo so that their ridiculous parents will take them home.

Kenya Moore is a grown-ass adult.

"So instead she caused a fight and stormed out."

And what a fight it was. Perfect for Kenya, who likes to be the center of attention. In fact, it was a real win-win for her.

"That way she still filmed but it wasn’t real, and she wasn’t really mad and all she did was cause drama."

That's why she gets paid the big bucks, we guess.

Kenya Moore and Marc Daly for "Bae Day"

But there was another method to Kenya's madness, the source reports.

"Kenya is so calculating."

She has to make enough drama for two people since her husband, Marc Daly, will not appear on the show.

"She would not have her husband film at all and instead she just got in fake fights with everyone so that she wouldn’t get in trouble for not doing anything."

Last year, we reported that Kenya Moore felt torn between her job and her husband because Marc Daly, the man she secretly married off-camera, refused to go on The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

"Houston was a prime example of her just storming out so that gets shown, but there was no reason for it."

Marc Daly and Kenya Moore

Marc Daly believes that The Real Housewives of Atlanta portrays black men in a negative light, and he's certainly not alone in believing that.

But some fans wonder if, as he watches his wife go to greater and more desperate lengths for attention and screen time in order to keep her job, he wonders if it's worth his pride to stay out of it.

On the other hand, Kenya Moore chose this job and this life. Marc Daly just chose her.

Either way, many must find it comforting to hear that Kenya Moore, a grown woman, had this reaction on purpose instead of actually just being like that.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 Episode 10 Recap: Storming Out

Kenya Moore loves to be the center of attention. 

Case in point: On The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 Episode 10, she ditched a charity event to headline one of her own and failed to tell her friends about it. 

When the episode got underway, it was revealed that Porsha Williams and Cynthia Bailey were each headlining their own events for Houston to help with relief efforts after Hurricane Harvey.

Kenya swiftly shut Cynthia down and said she was unable to attend her event, but failed to mention that she was doing one of her own. 

Sheree stayed home because of a back injury she got as a result of a car accident. Sheree was still mad at Nene Leakes for calling her boyfriend a con artist. 

Sheree relayed the information to her man via telephone because, well, he's incarcerated. 

Sheree Whitfield Talks

“Nene would never want to say anything negative about me. She doesn’t want to go down that road,” he said.

Does that mean there's a history between Nene and Tyrone?

“What I do know, is that when I met Tyrone, she was trying to pursue him,” Sheree admitted to the camera before saying that Tyrone was not into Nene and cut her off. 

Could this explain why Nene has been so against Tyrone and calling him out while he cannot defend himself? Quite possibly. 

Nene should quit being jealous and sort out her own life before trying to bring another woman down. 

NeNe Leakes at the Airport

Back in Houston, Cynthia's event was over, and she was supposed to make her way to Porsha's event. 

That did not happen, and she decided to go and support Kenya's Habitat for Humanity event instead. 

When the ladies met up for dinner, Lauren was quick to point out that Cynthia's move was shady and she will not forget it. 

“Saturday was the main reason I wanted you guys to come,” Porsha complained as Cynthia tried to cover her bases by saying she did not realize it was that important to her. 

The thing is, it probably wasn't crucial to her, but Porsha is desperately trying to kick up the drama, so she does not get demoted to the dreaded "Friend of Housewife" status. 

Porsha Williams Smiling

As if that was not bad enough, Shamea started to drag Kenya. Apparently, Kenya was rude to Shamea when she showed up to help out at Kenya's event. 

“I just felt like you were pretty dismissive,” Shamea said before claiming Kenya ordered her around. 

In a jaw-dropping turn of events, Cynthia sided with Shamea and said that Kenya was rude to everyone. 

Kenya stormed to the bathroom and started yelling at a show producer. 

Kenya Moore on the Red Carpet

“I don’t give a f—k about any of them bitches!” Kenya began. “The whole table is stupid as s—t.”

Okay then. 

Will Kenya be able to get back in good graces with her friends?
