Season 11 of Real Housewives of Atlanta just doesn’t feel the same without new mother Kenya Moore. I must admit that I miss the Kenya drama this season. So many of the fans waited for Kenya to get finally get her happily-ever-after and become a mother. Sadly, Kenya’s pregnancy and new motherhood was not captured for the cameras.
Now, Kenya is finally talking about why she left Real Housewives of Atlanta. Will she ever hold a peach again? Twirl on back to RHOA, Kenya! Please!
Kenya told People, “It broke my heart, but with all the stress I went through with this baby, I don’t know how I could have done it.” In July, People reported that contract negotiations about season 11 broke down between Kenya and the network. It appears that Kenya wanted a bigger paycheck, and the network wanted Kenya to allow cameras to film her entire life, including her camera-shy husband, Marc Daly.
But in the end, leaving may have been the best thing for Kenya. She said, “I really think that things happen for a reason. Even though I was disappointed to not come back to RHOA, I feel like it’s the best thing that could have happened for my baby.”
Baby Brooklyn entered the world via a three-hour C-section on November 4, 2018. Kenya had developed the dangerous medical condition preeclampsia, which necessitated the emergency delivery.
So now that Kenya’s family goals have been achieved, would she consider returning to RHOA? “Never say never,” Kenya stated. She added, “Hopefully things will be able to work out and viewers will be able to see me come full circle.”
Kenya is still friends with some of her RHOA cast mates and recently Cynthia Bailey and Kandi Burruss came to meet Kenya’s bundle of joy. Even Atlanta Housewives that didn’t get along with Kenya (I see you, Sheree Whitfield) also offered their congratulations. Does this mean that Sheree will finally give a private tour of Chateau Sheree to Kenya? I would love to see that!
