Has Kenya Moore’s peach been revoked?
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s decision to keep her summer elopement out of the Bravo spotlight may lead to her losing her reality gig.
“Marc [Daly] will not appear on The Real Housewives of Atlanta season 10,” an insider told Radar. “He refused to sign the appearance release and he even declined the producers’ attempt to lure him in for a few scenes with compensation.”
“They will mention Marc often throughout the show this season,” the insider noted, adding that Moore, 46, “is very unlikely to be invited back” for season 11.
As fans know, the former Miss USA married businessman Marc Daly in June — before season 10 filming started — and announced that she would not be sharing her new husband on TV.
“Kenya is the first Real Housewife in the history of the format to hide their spouse from the show,” the insider added. “Even though Bravo execs were left in the dark about her nuptials, they made multiple efforts to accommodate Kenya throughout taping in the hopes that she would introduce her husband on-camera when she felt comfortable.”
Kenya doesn’t have much of a storyline outside of her co-stars questioning the legitimacy of her marriage, according to the publication.
“Her lack of cooperation and choice to keep her husband away from the show hurts her because she does not have anything compelling going on in her life this season,” the insider said. “This season will showcase how Kenya’s lack of transparency on her new relationship puts a strain on her dynamic with the group as they question the legitimacy of her union.”
“Due to Kenya’s unwillingness to showcase the progression of her relationship this season, RHOA friends Kim Zolciak and Eva Marcillewill gain additional screen time,” the insider concluded.
As reported, Kenya’s husband refuses to be filmed and objects to the portrayal of African-American men on the reality series and declines to be degraded.
As a result of keeping her husband private, the 46-year-old was forced to renegotiate her contract after excluding RHOA cameras from her nuptials.
And to make matters worse, the reality diva missed the October cast trip to Barcelona, and was edited out of many scenes in season 10. She was reportedly replaced by America’s Next Top Model’s Marcille, 33.
