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.

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.

"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.

"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.

Kim Zolciak Gets Caught Photoshopping Her Kids, FREAKS OUT on Haters!

Just last month, Kim Zolciak was accused of photoshopping the butt of her 4-year-old daughter. Yikes.

Now, after new photos have surfaced that appear to show her kids before and after being digitally altered, Kim is blasting the accusations.

Kim calls the accusation "sick," but even some of her own fans are convinced that she's doing it.

Kim Zolciak kids photoshop accusation

An Instagram accounts called @wigzncigs is dedicated to exposing Kim Zolciak as an alleged fraud.

And they may have hit the jackpot.

They shared what they say are before and after photos of two of Kim Zolciak's very young children, Kaia and Kane.

Though the differences are almost imperceptible, it does appear that the photos were modified.

If you can't see the changes to both Kaia and Kane with the side-by-side images, perhaps seeing the contrast like this will help:

Kim Zolciak kids photoshop kaia and kane gif

"Check out the before & after," the non-fan page writes.

"Kaia's waist was taken in and her legs were made thinner," the caption reads. "Kane's ear was also made smaller."

It certainly appears that way.

But Kim, who has been accused of doctoring photos of her children in the past, took to social media to express her outrage -- and a firm denial.

Kim Zolciak Puts Her Hand Up

"People are f--kin SICK!!" Kim exclaims.

She demands in her tweet: "Get the f--k out here!!"

"No post was taken down," she asserts about the "before" photos.

"And," Kim continues. "No photo has been nor will ever be edited of my children!"

As for the accusations, Kim writes: "I will no longer stand for this bulls--t!"

Kaia and Kane Biermann

This is not Kim's first time being accused of this.

This Halloween photo of Kaia and Kane brought on accusations that she had digitally manipulated the curve of her daughter's butt.

Kaia Biermann, for the record, is four years old.

The idea of a mother being so obsessed with appearances that she tries to make her extremely young children look more "perfect" is stomach-turning.

Is this really what's happening?

Kim Zolciak: A Selfie

Even some of Kim Zolciak's own alleged fans seem to think so.

"I’d love to believe you," tweeted one person. "But I’ve seen a video of your IG pic/story, and it’s CLEARLY photoshopped-there are before and after shots. Sad, really."

Others were less gentle, tweeting: "The photo was 100% photoshopped lol."

Kim had defenders who sided with her, but her critics encouraged them to look at what they say is evidence of digital manipulation.

"Obviously you people haven’t seen the before and after," a tweeter wrote to Kim's defenders. "You can preach happiness and acceptance and joy...but damn girl, actions speak louder than words!"

Other fans spoke openly of their hope that her husband, Kroy, will step in and stop her from tweaking any more photos.

Kim Zolciak New Lips

As we mentioned, @wigzncigs is serious about taking down Kim Zolciak.

Their Instagram bio reads: "Exposing Kim Zolciak-Biermann and her family for the liars & frauds they are! Ask, Believe, Deceive."

The bio also links to, of all things, a change.org petition.

The petition aims to implore Andy Cohen to cancel Don't Be Tardy, on the grounds that they don't like Kim Zolciak and think she's fake.

Our first thought was that someone has way too much time on their hands.

NeNe Leakes Reaction Image

Our second thought was to half-jokingly wonder if NeNe Leakes is somehow behind this.

(She's not, but it would be so funny if she were using her massive paycheck to bankroll people to roast Kim)

But on a more serious note, if this "evidence" is somehow being faked or simply a misunderstanding, we hope that Kim can clear it up.

If Kim really is rounding out the butt and shrinking the ears of her very young children, though, that is ... super f--ked up.

It's one thing to have body image issues with yourself. It's another thing altogether to project that onto your own babies.

Kim Zolciak: HUGE Pay Raise Revealed!

When we went through the list of what The Real Housewives of Atlanta get paid, we mentioned that Kim Zolciak is busy doing her own thing.

Housewives salaries are notoriously hefty, but Kim is making more than most of them for Don't Be Tardy.

And she just got a major raise. Take a look:

Kim Zolciak for Bravo

"Kim is now making $125,000 per episode," an insider reveals to RadarOnline.

That is ... a lot of money to make at all, let alone for a single episode.

(Though we will acknowledge that it can take days, and dozens of hours of filming, to produce even one episode of a reality show, just as with scripted television)

There are reportedly 12 episodes, but don't worry, we won't make you do math.

The source continues: "which comes out to $1.5 million for the season."

Brielle Biermann: A Selfie

The report continues, saying that Kim isn't the only one who's making bank.

"And Brielle got a raise too," the insider announces.

The source says that: "Now she’s making $16,000 an episode."

Again, neither we nor this inside source are going to make you ask your phone to do this math.

All told, Brielle will be "pulling in $192,000 for this season."

Brielle Biermann Bikini Picture

Earlier this year, some feared that this season might never be completed.

Kim and Brielle were accused of racism, and that did not go over well at all. They even stopped filming in protest.

But that protest may have been a ploy to increase their salary ... and it worked.

"Kim and Brielle negotiated more money," the insider explains.

Filming resumed, the source adds, "and they got a raise."

Brielle Biermann and Kim Zolciak, Twinning

Kim and Brielle aren't the only ones who are getting paid more.

"While Kroy was playing football, he didn’t want or need to be paid much by the show," the insider prefaces.

"After he was out of the NFL," the source continues. "He renegotiated his deal to become an executive producer."

"And," the insider shares. "He got the same deal for Kim."

Well, good for both of them!

Kim Zolciak Selfie with Kroy Biermann

"That way," the source explains. "They can get more money from Bravo and the production company."

That is good thinking.

Fame can be glamorous. The idea of being a reality star can be extremely appealing to some people on its own merits.

But, at the end of the day, like most jobs -- like almost every job -- being a reality star is about getting paid.

Kim Zolciak is a big name reality star. She's raking in money to match.

Though she's still not making as much as NeNe Leakes.

Kim Zolciak: A Selfie

In her personal life, Kim recently got a breast reduction to reduce her mega-boobs to a more normal-sized large boobs.

Kim turned 40 last spring, and she was really feeling the weight -- literally -- of her breasts, and decided that they weren't worth back problems.

That is her choice because it is her body. Also, all boobs are awesome.

We can't imagine that a simple boob job is going to tank her career.

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 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 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.

Porsha Williams: Engaged to Her Baby Daddy!

Porsha Williams admitted a few weeks ago that she's pregnant and scared.

But at least the veteran Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member will not be pregnant, scared and alone.

Quite the opposite, in fact, as Williams announced something pretty exciting via Instagram on Monday morning...

Porsha Williams is Engaged

... she's ENGAGED!

"I said YES....," Porsha wrote as a caption to the Instagram image above, later adding:

Matter of fact I said HELL YESSSS lol !! Love you baby #DM. I’m ready for the rest of our life! Photo: @the_treeves ring by: @richierichny Leon Diamond.

Indeed, Williams has agreed to marry boyfriend Dennis McKinley not long after announcing to the world that the couple is expecting its first child.

How did the proposal transpire?

The long-time Bravo personality was very happy to provide People Magazine with the details.

Porsha Williams Engagement Pic

“Dennis rented out a venue and took Porsha via helicopter there,� her rep told the aforementioned publication, adding that there were “candles and rose petals everywhere.�

Sounds so romantic!

But it actually got even better and more unique from there.

The singer Lil’ Mo stunned Porsha by singing her favorite song, “4 Ever.�

And then Williams and McKinley threw a “prayer party� for their impending child.

“After they were officially engaged, they threw a Prayer party for Baby McKinley," said this rep, adding:

She doesn’t want any focus on the ring etc. but it’s huge and gorgeous!

"Dennis had videographer & photographer and has been working on the proposal for two months."

Porsha Williams Engagement Ring

It may not be all about the ring for Porsha Williams, but here is that ring!

Williams is 37 years old and could not be more excited to be a mother in a few months time.

But she has confessed to having a few concerns over such a late-in-life pregnancy.

"I’ve had a miscarriage before in my past, which I’ve also been open about because I suffer with fibroids and had to have a myomectomy," she said back in mid-September.

The miscarriage took place six years ago and Porsha says this development is a "dream come true," expounding as follows to People:

Porsha Williams at Film Premiere

“The thought of me getting that blessing after praying for it for so long and getting that blessing with someone who is just as excited as me - it’s Dennis’ first child, just like me - and it’s something we’ve both always wanted."

She and her now-fiance have known each other for years, but only started dating this year.

Williams was previously married to former NFL quarterback Kordell Stewart, splitting in 2013 after two years of a somewhat contentious marriage.

Season 11 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, meanwhile, is expected to premiere on Bravo late this fall.

Kim Zolciak: I Got a Breast Reduction! Bye Bye, Boobs!

Back in July, Georgia MILF Kim Zolciak asked fans to vote on her boob size.

She admitted that she wanted a breast reduction, but wasn't sure of how her famous bust should become.

Well, she's done it, folks. And she's already shared a recovery photo.

Kim Zolciak Loves the Beach

Kim Zolciak took to social media to share an image of her recovery from her breast reductions urgery.

"Part of the itty bitty titty committee," she jokes.

While itty bitty titty committee is a fun rhyme usually referred to A or B cups, the Don't Be Tardy star had the largest available breast implants until very recently.

Kim also writes: "Thanks, Dr. Hochstein."

We knew back in July that when it came to her own person #deflategate, Kim would be seeking the help of Dr. Leonard Hochstein.

Kim Zolciak Breast Reduction Recovery Photo

Kim Zolciak spoke to Us Weekly about her breast reduction.

"I went smaller and Dr. [Leonard] Hochstein did them," she confirms in case there was any doubt.

"He did my boobs four years ago and I loved them," Kim explains. "I just wanted a cup size smaller."

"I’m in Miami recovering now," Kim says. "Feeling fab at 40!!"

Kim also promises that she "will tell her complete experience" next week on her podcast, House of Kim.

Kim Zolciak, Red Solo Selfie

Back in July, Kim shared her plans with her fans and followers.

"I obviously have implants," she acknowledged. "I have the largest implants they actually make, but it doesn’t look that big on my body because of just the way I’m built"

"But I’m thinking about actually getting my boobs reduced," she revealed.

"I already called Dr. [Leonard] Hochstein, who did my boobs and tummy a few years ago," she explained. "He did my hernia repair and my tummy tuck after that, you might as well!"

She continued: "I said, ‘You know, I feel like I should get my boobs reduced. They’re heavy, my posture is terrible, I’m getting older.’"

Kim Zolciak Flaunts her Butt in a Bikini

"I was thinking of going from like a DD to like a C," Kim said. "So head over to my Instagram and vote: DD or C."

If she only went down one size, as she mentioned to Us Weekly, then this may mean that she is now a DD.

That would by no means be itty or bitty.

"I had a lift and I have the nicest boobs ever," Kim added in July. "I did breastfeed all of my kids, so ladies, let’s be honest, they were stretched out, loss of volume, pancake nipples,�

“So [Dr. Hochstein] gave me back my 18-year-old chest," Kim gushed. "Which was amazing."

People have very strong opinions about women and women's bodies, and of course they have strong opinions about boobs.

Some people love the hugest boobs imaginable and encourage stars to stay busty to the max. Others are more moderate, while others prefer smaller sizes.

Ultimately, even though Kim did ask for feedback, this was absolutely her call. She should have the boobs that she wants. Obviously.

We hope that she is recovering well and we all look forward to hearing more details about her latest tune-up!

Porsha Williams: I’m Pregnant… and Scared!

Porsha Williams has a reason to be excited.

And also a reason to be apprenhensive.

And it's actually the same reason for both emotions...

Porsha Williams and Boyfriend

... the reality star is PREGNANT!

The veteran Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member is expecting a child with boyfriend Dennis McKinley, she gushes to People Magazine.

“When I found out I was pregnant, I was excited [but] I had mixed feelings," Williams explains, expounding on the reason why:

"The other feeling that I had beside excitement was fear.

"I’ve had a miscarriage before in my past, which I’ve also been open about because I suffer with fibroids and had to have a myomectomy.

So just the fear of, ‘Is the baby going to be okay? Will I make it full term?’ All those questions that you ask if you’ve had a miscarriage before."

(A myomectomy is a surgical procedure to remove uterine fibroids. These common noncancerous growths appear in the uterus, typically during childbearing years.)

Porsha Williams at Film Premiere

At the time Willams gave this interview to People, she had not yet had an official medical scan of the baby.

She said she'll feel far more relaxed and be able to "wrap my mind around" being a mother once everything comes back okay.

No matter what, however, she stressed that she has the greatest partner imaginable in McKinley.

This is what she said to People about him:

“The thought of me getting that blessing after praying for it for so long and getting that blessing with someone who is just as excited as me - it’s Dennis’ first child, just like me - and it’s something we’ve both always wanted...

"It’s like a dream come true.�

Porsha Williams Selfie

Williams wasn't even done saying amazing things about her man, who she started dating a few months ago after having known him for years;

“I believe he’s probably shed more tears during the process than me. It’s just the sweetest moment of my life right now.�

It sounds like Porsha had basically given up hope of becoming a mother.

She wasn't really trying to get pregnant, but then... presto!

Amazing, right?

Porsha Williams in 2017

“The pregnancy came from the left, but it definitely has brought us closer together because you realize when it sets in that you are actually bringing a life to this world, that you have become family overnight,� the reality star said.

She concluded:

“So now a lot of the things that we had talked about are a reality, and we work really hard at wanting to be a good couple and build a strong foundation for our new family that we’re going to have."

CONGRATULATIONS TO PORSHA WILLIAMS!

Kim Zolciak Wants You to Vote on Her Next Boob Job: How Big Should They Be?

Georgia MILF Kim Zolciak is now 40, but she hasn't lost her edge. And by edge, we mean her figure.

However, the reality star has grown dissatisfied with her breasts and, worried that they're too big, has decided that it's time for a change.

She's undecided about how big her boobs should be -- and is asking fans for advice.

Kim Zolciak Loves the Beach

"I obviously have implants," Kim shared on her podcast, House of Kim.

"I have the largest implants they actually make," Kim says.

That's kind of a boasty thing to say, but some could read it as a self-own.

Kim has massive implants, she says, "but it doesn't look that big on my body because of just the way I’m built."

"But," Kim announces. "I'm thinking about actually getting my boobs reduced."

Kim Zolciak Boob job poll

"I already called Dr. Hochstein," Kim continues. "Who did my boobs and tummy a few years ago."

"He did my hernia repair and my tummy tuck," Kim says, explaining: "After that, you might as well!"

By that, she means that her tummy tuck is "excused" (not that it needs one) because she was already getting surgery in that area.

Kim reveals: "And I said, 'You know, I feel like I should get my boobs reduced."

"They’re heavy," Kim complains. "My posture is terrible, I’m getting older.'"

Kim Zolciak Flaunts Her Bust in a Bikini

Boobs, whether amplified with implants or not, can be heavy (and way too hot) and be much more of a burden than a lot of admirers like to imagine.

"I’m thinking like a C, a full C," Kim says. "I have to have all my clothes altered."

"I have to buy a size 6 in everything when I could wear a size 2 in tops," Kim grumbles. "Because of my boobs and then have everything altered."

A lot of people could buy clothes of a different size if just one little thing -- from shoulders to torso length to, yes, boob size -- were a little less.

"So it’d be nice," Kim says. "To just be able to wear something."

Kim Zolciak Flaunts her Butt in a Bikini

But Kim wants to be absolutely clear that her desire for a reduction is not because her boobs are sagging.

"They’re perky because I had a lift," Kim clarifies.

It's the weight on her, not the toll exacted by gravity, Kim says, "so it’s not really that."

It's a matter of constant discomfort, Kim explains, saying: "It’s just the weight of them."

Kroy Biermann Selfie with Kim Zolciak

The fact that she asked for the opinions of fans is hilarious.

There are plenty of people on the internet -- most of them trolls -- who love to tell women exactly what they should do with their bodies.

We can only imagine that they grew bored when she asked them if she should get a full C cup or DD sized implants next.

As you can imagine, purists who think that she shouldn't have implants at all and size kings who think that there's no such thing as a boob too large had plenty to say.

Ultimately, this is Kim's decision. Not a choice on the part of her fans, her doctor, or her husband.

She should go with whichever boob size she'll like the most.

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)

RadarOnline has reported that Kenya's reality career is in danger, saying: "Kenya’s status as a ‘friend’ is in jeopardy because she is holding up the deal."

"Kenya was told she would have to take a drastic pay cut," the insider adds.

That is interesting to hear, given that Kenya has gone above and beyond to deny rumors that her reality career is on the line.

The source continues, claiming: "And there was no guarantee about how many episodes she would appear in, or if she would appear in any at all."

Kenya didn't like it when fans questioned her pregnancy and she eventually showed evidence that she really is with child.

Will she do the same again for her status as a Real Houswife? Or is this rumor true?

Kenya Moore Early Ultrasound

Kenya not only shared a photo of her baby bump to silence doubters, she later went on to let fans see part of one of her early ultrasounds from the doctor's office.

But this pregnancy might help explain away her absence from that dinner in Miami.

See, it includes multiple seafood items. The women were also drinking martinis.

Guess what pregnant woman are not advised to have for dinner? Any of that.

So, though we know that RadarOnline has multiple sources, some might suggest that the simplest explanation for Kenya's absence from dinner was that she didn't want to be surrounded by costars eating and drinking things that she herself cannot.

But RadarOnline reports that an insider claims that she's basically done on the show. 

"At this point," the insider claims. "The show is ready to move along without her at all."

Why? Well ... timing.

The source alleges: "Bringing Kenya back full-time would be useless."

That sounds kind of mean to us. But they just mean that, allegedly, Kenya's pregnancy is less than optimal for the show's schedule.

"Her pregnancy timeline conflicts with the production schedule," the insider explains. "She said she’s due in November/December but production wraps in October."

Hmmm. That's definitely something to consider.

Still, perhaps Kenya can prove to producers that she's worth her (pregnant) weight in cash even if her childbirth happens during hiatus.

NeNe Leakes Reveals Husband’s Cancer Diagnosis

NeNe Leakes has opened up about the most personal and troubling of news:

Her husband has been diagnosed with cancer.

NeNe Leakes and Husband

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star took to Instagram on Wednesday evening to share a photo of her and Gregg at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.

She went ahead and then revealed this sad news via one simple photo and one simple caption:

The former features Gregg sitting next to a computer, which shows the word "cancer" crossed out on the monitor.

The latter reads as follows:

Our New Normal and the fight begins #f-ckcancer#mdandersoncancercenter #yougotthis #iloveyou.

Take a look at the image in question below and join us in sending thoughts and condolences to both NeNe and Gregg.

Gregg

We don't have any further information at the moment regarding Gregg's type of cancer or his pronosis.

Multiple outlets have written that they've reached out to Leakes for comment and have not heard anything back just yet.

Three weeks ago, however, the veteran reality star canceled a series of her appearances, announcing that Gregg had been under doctor's supervision for over two weeks.

"Today marks the 15th day straight that Gregg has been in the hospital," NeNe said in an Instagram video message to her fans on May 21, adding:

"I find it very difficult to stand on stage and laugh and have a good time and give you guys your money's worth knowing that my husband's in the hospital not feeling well."

Our guess is that Leakes wasn't aware at this time just what the problem was with her husband.

“He has said to me over and over again, ‘Go on, go out there, have a good time, do the show, I’m going to be fine,'" continued Leakes last month.

"But I find it mentally very hard for me to do that.”

NeNe Close-Up

NeNe and Gregg have been married since 1997.

As loyal Real Housewives fans know, however, the duo briefly divorced in 2011, only to remarry two years later (as seen on NeNe’s spin-off series, I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding).

Over the past several weeks, we've mostly written about NeNe due to her never-ending feud with Kim Zolciak.

The former friends have gone back and forth on social media forever, it seems ratcheting up their rivalry with accusations of racism and roach-infestations.

NeNe Leakes Selfie

At this point, however, we'd have to imagine that the insults will stop for at least a little bit.

There are clearly more important things to focus on here.

Even Zolciak would probably send along best wishes to Leakes and her loved ones after learning this unfortunate piece of information.

We'll update this story with messages of support from other members of the Real Housewives franchise once they come pouring in.

Hang in there, NeNe and Gregg.

Eva Marcille to Join Real Housewives of Atlanta Cast!

At this point, Bravo reality show casts experience about as many shake-ups as the Trump White House.

There's the occasional stalwart Housewife who's been with her series from the start, but few are able to strike that balance where they can to drum up enough drama to satisfy viewers, but not so much that they permanently piss off their castmates.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta Cast Members

In other words, for every Lisa Vanderpump, there's a Kim Zolciak-Biermann, who's come and gone so many times even she probably couldn't tell you if she's currently a member of the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast.

RHOA has more of a revolving door than other shows in the franchise but the season 11 picture is beginning to develop.

There was a time when none of the original Housewives were main cast members, but NeNe Leakes and Sheree Whitfield both made their returns over the past two years.

Whitfield has been ousted once again, but next season, NeNe will be joined by Kandi Burruss, Cynthia Bailey, Porsha Williams, Kenya Moore and -- drumroll please ...

Newcomer Eva Marcille!

Eva Marcille Photo

Eva is a familiar face to fans of the series, as she appeared as a "friend of the cast" in season 10.

Of course, that wasn't Eva's first foray into the world of reality television, as she initially made a name for herself as the winner on her season of America's Next Top Model.

These days, Eva is a mother of two, but fear not -- she hasn't lost her taste for drama.

Earlier this week, Marcille pulled no punches when discussing her fraught relationship with Kenya Moore in an interview with Us Weekly.

“She was gone for most of the season,” Marcille told Us.

“And I thought mean girls died in like high school like, I didn’t realize they were knocking on 50 but hey girl live your best."

Eva Marcille Picture

Marcille did offer some sympathy to Moore, stating:

"I thought like she’s on this whole other space you know. I get her irritation towards certain people that she’s had history with.”

As we said earlier, Sheree Whitfield won't be returning next season, nor will Kim Zolciak-Biermann, who -- like Marcille -- had part-time "friend" status last season.

So the cast will look considerably different in season 11, but we're sure they'll still be serving up what fans keep coming back for:

Plenty of drama, and gossip as juicy as a Georgia peach.

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online to get caught up in time for the premiere.

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.
