Kenya Moore Gloats as The Real Housewives of Atlanta Ratings Plummet Without Her

The Real Housewives of Atlanta is back for Season 11.

Unfortunately, ratings at the season premiere are lower than they've been in several years.

Meanwhile, former Housewife Kenya Moore welcomed her first child ... and she can't help but smile.

Kenya Moore as a Blonde

If you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online, you know that the show has been going on as before.

Kandi and Porsha are struggling to approximate friendship after previously feuding.

NeNe is grappling with Gregg's cancer battle.

But Kenya Moore is missing. She's no longer on the show.

In real life, however, she recently gave birth to a precious preemie baby, Brooklyn Doris Daly.

And on Sunday, Kenya shared this precious photo for the world to see:

Kenya Moore Hand with Baby Hand

Kenya hasn't shown her adorable baby's face yet, but a precious baby hand is more than enough to tide over her fans.

Following being diagnosed with preeclampsia, which caused her feet to swell, Kenya was given a C-section.

Kenya, though certainly not old by any reasonable metric, is considered "old" for pregnancy, so she always knew that there would be risks.

Fortunately, it seems that the C-section was a success.

Kenya is recovering, and was even feeling healthy enough to go on a Target run (in a motorized scooter, to be clear).

And at 5 pounds and 12 ounces, baby Brooklyn was technically within the "normal" range for baby weights, if very close to the low end of the spectrum.

But one person did not find Kenya's sweet mother-daughter hand photo endearing in the least.

NeNe Leakes Selfie

"I can’t wit the calculations on Sunday’s," NeNe Leakes wrote on Instagram.

She tagged her vague post: "#thethirstisreal #weseeyou #wacks--t"

The implication that NeNe seemed to be making was that Kenya timed her photo in a shady manner.

Perhaps, for example, Kenya showed off her baby's hand to distract fans from her former show.

Or maybe she did it to remind Bravo of the kind of content that they're missing out on since she's no longer on the show.

Whatever it is that NeNe believes that Kenya is up to ... it's unclear why NeNe felt the need to comment.

Some might suspect that NeNe is feeling insecure because of what some tabloids have described as a "ratings crash."

The season premiere of The Real Housewives of Atlanta brought in 1.93 million viewers.

That made it the lowest rated season opener since Season 5.

That said, relatively low ratings for a premiere aren't necessarily a huge crash.

it's not good news, but they had about the same number of viewers as recently as April 1 of 2018.

Bravo may be concerned, but we can't imagine that they're panicking.

That said, NeNe may be worried -- because she's the show's highest paid star.

That said, some people can't help but connect the dots.

Kenya's firing was certainly the biggest change between last season and this season.

Now, Kenya has everything she wanted -- a loving husband and a precious newborn baby.

In the mean time, The Real Housewives of Atlanta has taken a downward turn from being Bravo's highest rated show.

It may not have been Kenya's choice to go overboard, but it's looking like she may have jumped ship at a smart time.

Or maybe people are less interested now that she's off the show.

Porsha Williams, NeNe Leakes

Not every Real Housewives series is going to last or click with all viewers.

But we don't think that it's time to start singing RHOA's funeral dirge just yet.

This season's ratings may pick up.

If not, there's always next season.

Probably

Bravo would likely be reluctant to cancel, for a host of reasons.

Kenya Moore: It’ll Be Weeks Before I Walk Again After C-Section

Just days ago, Kenya Moore welcomed her first child with husband Marc Daly.

It was a difficult, premature birth brought on by pregnancy complications.

Now, Kenya is opening up about her recovery, and the differences between real life and reality television.

Kenya Moore Goes on a Target Run after C-section

"#realVsReality," Kenya tagged her video, pointing at how real life and reality television are very different.

"#brooklyndaly came early," she reminds her fans and followers of her newborn daughter.

"And the reality is," Kenya continues. "It will take weeks for me to be able to walk without the excruciating pain of a C section."

"And," she says, it will takes weeks for her "to heal from the multiple cuts to my uterus."

C-sections are no joke, folks.

But that didn't stop Kenya from taking a motorized scooter on a tour of Target.

"Needed to get her some preemie items," Kenya shares.

"So of course," Kenya continues. "Off to @target we went."

"My aunt Lisa is so afraid!" she admits.

Kenya then confesses: "I’m supposed to be in bed."

The idea of going shopping just a few days after giving birth in any fashion is ... a little alarming.

(Yes, some people gave birth and then went to go vote just hours later, but they are the exception, not the rule)

After a C-section, Kenya should be at home, being catered to and focusing on healing.

Kenya Moore Gives Birth

In April, Kenya revealed that she and Marc Daly were expecting their first child.

Six months later, on Halloween, Kenya revealed that there were complications with her pregnancy.

Kenya was diagnosed with preeclamsia, the three main symptoms of which are high blood pressure, swelling of hands and feet, and protein in urine.

Out of concern over this dangerous pregnancy condition, doctors and Kenya decided upon a C-section.

Her baby, Brooklyn Doris Daly, was removed from her uterus by skilled surgeons.

Brooklyn is considered premature, and weighs just 5 pounds and 12 ounces.

Kenya Moore and Husband

Despite her preemie status, Brooklyn is said to be alert and after.

Kenya explained how she and Marc chose their firstborn's name.

"Brooklyn because that’s where we met and fell in love," Kenya said.

"And Doris," she continued. "After my grandmother who passed away last year and who raised me."

Daly, of course, comes from the last name of her husband, Marc Daly.

Kenya Moore is not old in real life. She is 47 years old.

In terms of safely becoming pregnant, staying pregnant, and carrying a child to term, she is definitely within the upper extremes of age.

(That's by the standards of the medical community -- we're not age-shaming her)

We're sure that Kenya and Marc are so grateful that they were able to come through this pregnancy with both mother and baby alive and healthy.

Last year, they married each other. Now, just a year and a half later, they're growing their family.

Kenya Moore as a Blonde

In all honesty, the trip to Target less than a week after a C-section sounds a little ... far-fetched.

Target is a great place as far as liminal spaces are concerned, but Kenya going herself is odd.

We're sure that Atlanta has delivery options (we don't have to guess; we looked it up).

Also, Kenya has family and a husband who could have gone.

Either Kenya is just really specific about what she wants her baby to have and couldn't wait a week ...

... Or maybe this was an endorsement deal and she's doing it for the cash.

Kenya Moore Welcomes First Child!

She's here, folks!

The 47-year old Real Housewives of Atlanta alum gave birth to a baby girl named Brooklyn Doris Daly at 9:39 a.m. ET on Sunday, Nov. 4, People Magazine has confirmed.

The precious little daughter weighs 5 lbs. and 12 oz.

This is the first child for both Moore and her husband, Marc Daly.

What inspired this unique name?

“Brooklyn because that’s where we met and fell in love, and Doris after my grandmother who passed away last year and who raised me,� Moore told People of the monkier's basis and significance.

Kenya announced the exciting news of her pregnancy on stage at The Real Housewives reunion back in April.

"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 at the time:

“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."

Kenya Moore and Husband

At 47 years old, Moore suffered a few complications related to her age.

(She is not old by regular standards, but she was considered a "geriatric" mother-to-be within the medical community.)

According to People, the former Miss USA - who conceived through in vitro fertilizatio -  gave birth via emergency cesarean section after revealing on October 27 that she had tested positive for preeclampsia.

This is a complication that caused her to gain 17 pounds in just a week due to severe swelling and water retention, high blood pressure, and excess protein in urine.

"This is NOT normal!" wrote Moore on Instagram along with a photo of her swollen feet that day, adding:

"I took more tests. Baby is fine but if they come back higher #babydaly will have to come same day.

"Staying positive. To my pregnant sisters please go to your visits and tell the doctor of any drastic changes. Thank God I have great doctors."

k in hospital

On Saturday, meanwhile, Moore let fans on Instagram know that her daughter was on the way.

She wrote on Instagram:

“If you want to make God laugh have a plan… Won’t be long now. Pray for us #babydaly #weloveyou #prayers.�

Moore and Daly, who met through a mutual friend started dating in December of 2016 and got married in St. Lucia in June of last year.

We both want to start a family, and soon - like, right away. We both want a child," she said at the time.

Sadly, Bravo viewers will not get to see Moore's pregnancy play out on television.

She has already said she will NOT appear on Season 11 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

“Words cannot express the joy and happiness I feel in my heart,� Kenya wrote on Instagram in response to her baby shower last month, concluding:

“So overwhelming to have a room of people who came to celebrate the impending life of #babydaly."

We send our very best wishes and our hearty congratulations to Moore and Daly.

Kenya Moore Lashes Out at Friends, Family For Ghosting Wedding Registry

Even though Kenya Moore is out of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, she's still living her life. Plus, she has a baby on the way.

But apparently people weren't RSVPing or reserving gifts for her baby shower, which caused Kenya to go into an epic rant.

She feels like she's being ghosted by her entire social circle, and she might just cancel the party.

Kenya Moore, Glowing Selfie

Over the weekend, former The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore vented her fury with a not-so-vague post on Instagram.

"#Etiquette101," Kenya began her diatribe.

"If you cannot attend a monumental life changing event," she instructed her followers. "It’s nice to send a gift anyway,�

Kenya then asked: “Or it’s about class?"

She did, at least, make it clear that her outrage isn't over a lack of gifts being purchased - it's the principle of the matter.

Kenya Moore as a Blonde

"It’s not about a dollar amount," she clarified. "It’s to show you care."

Kenya continued: "The same way the person cared to invite you to share a moment in their life."

"RSVP literally means RESPOND PLEASE in French," she educated her fans.

"So if you get an invitation," she cautions. "Respond with a yes or no if you will be attending."

it seems very clear that she sending a wildly unsubtle message to her friends and family.

Kenya

According to Kenya Moore's BuyBuyBaby registry, discovered by RadarOnline, Kenya had reason to be upset.

She had 73 items on her gift registry.

Of them, at the time that she made that post, not even 5 of them had been selected. That number is reportedly up to 7 as of Wednesday.

Some of Kenya's suggested gifts were pricey.

She listed a UPPAbaby VISTA 2018 Stroller for $929.99 and a Doona Infant Car Seat/Stroller for $499.99.

But Kenya didn't expect thousand-dollar gifts from everyone. She also listed $7.99 bib sets and a simple blanket for $29.99.

Kenya Moore and Marc Daly

RadarOnline reports that Kenya feels totally snubbed over her baby shower.

"Kenya is devastated none of her real friends are showing up for her and buying gifts off her registry," the insider explains.

The source goes on to say that Kenya feels "embarrassed," and "heartbroken" over this slight.

"And," the insider adds, Kenya is also "mad."

It's not like one person forgot to RSVP. She feels like she's being ghosted by her entire social circle.

Kenya Moore on the Red Carpet

"This is a big deal to her," the source explains.

Of course! She's waited all her life to find the right man and to have this baby.

"And," the insider continues. "She feels like those close to her have let her down.�

She feels like they just don't care about this major milestone in her life.

“She’s beyond furious," the source dishes.

And it's possible that, if she feels that no one is coming, she might just cancel.

Kenya Moore and Husband

Kenya's husband, Marc Daly, has reportedly offered to purchase the entire list of gifts -- all 73 items, as an appeasement.

He hopes to "calm" her, the insider explains.

The source adds that if it will "make her happy," he'd be happy to do it.

Plus, he wants to head off any fighting over this "and keep the shower as planned."

"Kenya thinks that’s sweet," the insider admits. 

If you sense a but coming, you're absolutely right.

Kenya Moore and Marc Daly for "Bae Day"

"But," the source continues. "She wants an authentic shower."

If she just wanted a bunch of stuff, she could have gone online and ordered it her own rich self.

Kenya, the insider says, wants a real shower, the kind that comes "with everyone she knows coming to bow down."

She wants to feel like they're there to honor her "and tell her how beautiful she looks."

After her rant about good manners, perhaps she will get her wish.

But she may always feel haunted by the thought that they only came and bought gifts because she shamed them into it.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta: How Much Are the Stars Paid?

The Real Housewives of Atlanta returns in early November, and there have been some casting shake-ups.

After a year of suspense, Kenya Moore is off the show.

It doesn't pay to hide your wedding from the cameras, folks. Not when you're a Real Housewife.

But Kenya's vacancy doesn't just make room for new faces -- it also frees up some cash.

Season 10 had some incredible ratings, so a lot of these Housewives got raises for Season 11.

How much are the stars raking in?

1. Which Housewives are making bank?

Three real housewives
And which Housewives are just getting by? (Just kidding, even the ones making the least are still raking in the dough)

2. Kandi Burruss

Kandi and her boobs
Kandi has gotten a raise thanks to some savvy dramatics last season. Her $2 million salary has gone up to $2.2 million.

3. Cynthia Bailey

Cynthia bailey and peter thomas on the red carpet
Cynthia is raking in $1.75 million, which is a six-figure raise from her previous salary of $1.6 million.

4. Porsha Williams

Porsha williams has cleavage
Porsha Williams got a massive bonus to go with her baby bump. Her salary went from $800,000 to $1.25 million. That is a raise of nearly half a million, folks.

5. Marlo Hampton

Marlo hampton
Marlo is technically just a "friend" of the Housewives, but few people's friendships turn out to be so lucrative. Marlo is drawing in $275,000 for her recurring role.

6. NeNe Leakes

Nene leakes reaction image
NeNe has been raking in the biggest paycheck of any of the Housewives, and that doesn't look like it's going to change any time soon. She was making $2.5 million last season. Now, she's making $2.75 million. Being a living meme pays off.

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.

Kenya Moore and Husband

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.

Kenya Moore Baby Bump Photo

“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."

Kenya Moore, Glowing Selfie

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."

Kenya Moore at the Reunion

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 Whitfeield Image

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. 

NeNe Leakes at the Airport

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.
