After six seasons on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kenya Moore will not be returning for the upcoming Season 11, she confirmed to The Daily Dish. “I have decided to take this season off to focus on my high risk pregnancy in a healthy and drama free environment," Kenya told The Daily Dish in a statement. "I thank Bravo for this amazing platform that has allowed me to grow, flourish and appreciate the value of what is truly important in life."
Kenya also thanked her beloved fans for all of the love they have shown her during her time on RHOA in her statement. "And to #TeamTwirl: Thank you for your loving and relentless support — you will see me soon!" Kenya gushed, adding a reminder that her first child, #BabyDaly, is on the way.
Kenya first joined RHOA in Season 5, and she has brought no shortage of Gone with the Wind fabulous moments with her along the way. We've watched Kenya twirl into the next chapter of her life, whether it was growing her haircare empire, building her new home, Moore Manor, or finding closure in her past painful family issues.
Kenya hit another major life milestone when she wed Marc Daly in an intimate beach ceremony in St. Lucia on June 10, 2017. After keeping it coy when it came to her new man in Season 10 of RHOA, Kenya finally introduced him to her fellow Georgia Peaches. Kenya later surprised everyone at the RHOA Season 10 reunion when she announced that she was expecting her first child with Marc (clip below).
Since then, Kenya has loved sharing the joys of her pregnancy with fans on Instagram, from her gorgeous growing baby bump to special moments with her man. Kenya is expected to give birth "late this year," she said during last season's RHOA reunion.
RHOA will return for Season 11 Sunday, November 4 at 8/7c with plenty of familiar faces, including Cynthia Bailey, Porsha Williams, Kandi Burruss, NeNe Leakes, Eva Marcille, and new Housewife Shamari DeVoe. Shereé Whitfield also confirmed to The Daily Dish that she will not be returning for RHOA Season 11.
