AceShowbiz - While "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" is gearing up for its 10th season premiere, a new report suggested that one of the cast members wouldn't be returning. Kenya Moore was said to be quitting the show after she went M.I.A. during a cast trip to Barcelona.
According to Tamara Tattles, the TV star was left out after the other housewives tried to convince producers to include Kenya's nemesis Kim Zolciak in the trip in place of Kenya. However, the "Don't Be Tardy..." star denied the claims on Instagram, saying, "Was packing to leave the country then had a choice AND I decided I'll be headed out for #DontBeTardy press instead!"
Although Kim declined the invitation, the report claimed that it didn't change Kenya's decision to stay out of the trek. Her spot reportedly was given to former "America's Next Top Model" winner Eva Marcille, who was announced as a new member of the "RHOA" cast for the upcoming season.
Despite the quitting rumors, a production source told Us Weekly that "Kenya has not quit the show, nor has she been fired." The source further explained that her marriage to Marc Daly was the reason behind the backstage drama between the former Miss USA with producers and the cast.
"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 revealed. "Kenya is a newlywed and has to respect her new husband's wishes to not be part of the show. "Kenya has been trying to have a baby and the stress has caused her unnecessary emotional distress."
Kenya later took to her Instagram account to seemingly respond to the allegations. She posted a video which featured her calmly looking off into the distance with the words, "A Sitting Queen never quits and cannot be removed from her throne."
