Bravo Refuses To Pay Kenya Moore For Crashing 'RHOA' Event
Former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore recently crashed filming at Cynthia Bailey’s Girl’s Night Out party, and if it was an attempt to get back on RHOA, it didn’t work. Radar Online is reporting that Moore horrified the production staff when she showed up during filming of the season finale, and she completely destroyed any chance for an RHOA comeback.
An insider says that Moore’s desperate attempt to get back on RHOA was a bust, and there is no guarantee the scenes will even make it on the show.
“The editing won’t be done until the beginning of the new year, and the network might not want Kenya at all,” revealed an inside source.
We don’t know yet if Moore’s party crashing will make it to the show, but one thing we do know for sure is that Bravo isn’t going to pay her for it.
“Kenya did not have a deal with Bravo or the production company to get compensated for being at Bailey’s ‘exotic escape’ party. She had been offered an appearance fee before the season started, for $1,500 each time she filmed, but she turned that down,” added the source.
The insider also said that Moore really thought this stunt would get her back on RHOA , but she was very wrong. She was not invited to the taping at Bailey’s Seagram’s Escapes event, even though photos have surfaced of Moore being mic’d up at the party.
Moore’s appearance at the launch party for Bailey’s signature Peach Bellini drink was not a welcome one and crashing the final filming does not mean she is back on the show. Some sources claim that Moore showed up to the bash, so she could confront NeNe Leakes, but the two never faced each other because Leakes wants “nothing to do with her.”
Leakes avoided Moore the entire night, and both she and Bravo made it clear that she is not coming back to the show no matter what tricks she pulls.
The source says that Moore “overplayed her cards.” She thought that she could show up and create some drama, and that would get her back on RHOA . But, it won’t.
Fans have speculated for months that Leakes had issues with Moore, and when Leakes didn’t score an invite to Moore’s baby shower, the rumors shifted into overdrive. It didn’t help that Kenya Moore revealed in an Instagram Q & A in early October that she would “delete NeNe” from her phone when given a choice.
New episodes of Real Housewives of Atlanta will return to Bravo on November 4th.
