Bravo producers are reportedly dragging Kenya Moore right off the set of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” and out the door of the reality show, as long been rumored would happen, according to an insider.
As RadarOnline reports, Moore is following Phaedra Parks, who was fired last season, after the Detroit-born beauty queen bolted for the Caribbean to have a secret wedding with Marc Daly last summer, and furthermore refused to put her new husband on the show. Therefore, the entertainment publication reports that Bravo is currently looking for someone to fill in Moore’s vacant spot.
Meanwhile, Radar indicates that NeNe Leakes, Porsha Williams, Cynthia Bailey, and Sheree Whitfield are safe. Kim Zolciak-Biermann remains on the chopping block, but producers have yet to decide whether to ax her or bring her back for another season in a supporting role.
“Kim coming on board full time won’t be determined until after the reunion is taped,” an insider revealed to Radar. “And Eva Marcille may or may not be brought back yet.”
RadarOnline says Bravo is already out “testing” new women and Moore is left to consider if her sacrifice was worth it. If the marriage to Day is real and that he is a major restaurant owner, then she should not be worried about security in the short term.
Moore tried futilely to do other things to keep her job on the show, including teasing that she could be pregnant. She even went as far as to take a pregnancy test and then go to a doctor. But, it was all a performance to spice up her storyline. Moore never believed that she was actually pregnant, and her castmates and producers saw right through her.
Moore, 47, even tried to say she declined to go on the cast trip to Barcelona, Spain, but it turns out that producers banned her from the European excursion and the absence cost her a hefty $100K.
Moore and her husband, Marc Daily, have laid low ever since they tied the knot, but they recently showed up together for the first time at the Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar viewing party in Beverly Hills, Calif. They also were interviewed together for the first time but refused to answer pointed questions about her pregnancy status.
