The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore, one of the all-time favorite “peaches,” is back and excited to return for the new season as a mom. After taking a break from the franchise, Kenya is back and better than ever.
A former Miss USA, Kenya was first introduced to viewers when she was originally featured on season five of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. On the show, fans watched as she formed a very close friendship with fellow castmate, Cynthia Bailey. This friendship often caused face-offs between the other housewives, Porsha Williams and NeNe Leakes. Kenya enjoyed pushing Porsha’s buttons on the reunion show that caused Porsha to flip out and try to physically attack Kenya. She also made a brief appearance in the Season 11 finale at one of Cynthia’s functions, causing a lot of tension between NeNe and Cynthia. Kenya left the reality show when season 10 ended in 2018 after she got married to Marc Daly and became pregnant with the couples' first child.
The "gone with the wind fabulous” diva has agreed to make her return, a source close to Kenya confirmed via HollywoodLife. Kenya will be returning for season 12 and cannot be more excited. The source explained that the reality star is looking forward to reacquainting and bonding with her castmates again, saying, “Kenya knows that she was made for reality TV and is so excited to share her life with viewers again. Kenya is keeping it real and not holding anything back at all yet again." Kenya recently confirmed the rumors of her return herself on her personal Instagram, posting a picture of her holding the iconic Real Housewives of Atlanta peach. Check out the image below:
Kenya has openly talked on the show about wanting a baby. In 2014, The Real Housewives of Atlanta showed Kenya actually seeking out a sperm donor to have a baby on her own after growing tired of waiting. After marrying her husband, Marc, the couple has struggled through IVF and a high-risk pregnancy to welcome their baby girl, Brooklyn, on November 6, 2018. The source says, "She can’t wait to show Brooklyn off to all the viewers.” Kenya, who isn't shy about showing off her daughter, has her own Instagram dedicated just to her.
To say that long-time fans are excited about Kenya Moore’s return to the show is an understatement. Bravo has yet to release the premiere date for The Real Housewives of Atlanta season 12, but fans are eager to see how Kenya will be on camera now as a new mom, wondering if her daughter has calmed her down or if will she continue to be her opinionated, over-the-top self.
