Kenya Moore could use a pick-me-up right about now. The former Real Housewives of Atlanta star lost her peach after a disastrous Season 10 — and now we know who Bravo is tapping for her replacement. Inside sources claim that Bravo executives want Marlo Hampton to replace Moore for Season 11. Moore reportedly lost her spot as a full-time cast member because she refused to let anyone know about her secret wedding with Marc Daly.
Producers were not happy with Moore’s actions and fined her for not letting cameras document the ceremony. Moore was also cut from a lot of the action last season, which left producers looking for a replacement.
“Marlo is the front runner for Kenya’s slot,” an inside source dished, adding that producers are willing to make her full-time as long as she can “deliver the drama this summer!”

While it sounds like Moore’s days on the RHOA are numbered, she’s not going out without a fight. According to Radar Online, the reality star is not accepting a demotion and will not appear on the show unless she’s a full-timer.
Sources say that Moore’s pride is preventing her from taking a lesser role in the upcoming season, which could spell the end of her time on the RHOA.
Hampton’s future, on the other hand, has never been brighter. Producers are reportedly planning on having a “new beginnings” theme for Season 11 and believe Hampton fits perfectly with the narrative.
They are also planning on focusing on the key characters on the show and their loved ones. Unfortunately for Moore, they don’t want her in the equation.

With her fate already sealed, the insider claims that Moore has decided to bow out completely. Moore feels as though she has run her course on the show and wants to focus on starting her own family with her new hubby.
With a baby on the way, Moore will have plenty of things to keep her busy in the coming year. Whether or not Moore stays away from the show forever remains to be seen.
Bravo has not announced an official cast list for the upcoming season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Several stars of the show, however, have been spotted filming scenes, including Porsha Williams, NeNe Leakes, Eva Marcille, Cynthia Bailey and Hampton. The group was last seen filming in Miami. Kenya Moore was not spotted with her co-stars.
