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.
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.

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 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.
