There have been reports that Kenya Moore quit The Real Housewives of Atlanta, because she didn’t join her co-stars on their cast trip to Barcelona, Spain.
A new report reveals that the women of the show lobbied around Kim Zolciak-Biermann and wanted her on the trip more than Kenya. And it seemed Kim would be joining the ladies until she posted something on Instagram last Wednesday.
“WAS packing to leave the country then had a choice AND I decided,” she wrote. “I’ll be headed out for #DontBeTardy press instead! Season 6 premieres October 6th 8pm on @Bravotv #WhenYourOWNShowCalls… #SomeNeedToJustGiveItUp #ArentYouTired #Season6 #IAlwaysHaveAChoice.”
But Kenya still didn’t join the ladies. As we’ve reported, actress and model Eva Marcille joined NeNe Leakes and the girls in Europe.
“Kenya has not quit the show, nor has she been fired,” an insider tells US Weekly.
“Kenya was pulled from the cast trip last-minute and Bravo may be playing a bit of hardball to get Kenya’s new husband on the show by limiting her on-air appearances,” the source says. “Kenya is a newlywed and has to respect her new husband’s wishes to not be part of the show.”
“Her husband is a former investment banker who has never sought the spotlight,” the source says. “However, he wants to support his new bride and her career … apparently not fast enough.”
And apparently, all the drama from this season is weighing heavy on Moore, who is trying to have a baby. “Kenya has been trying to have a baby and the stress has caused her unnecessary emotional distress.”
