Be advised, Kenya Moore is very serious when it comes to the etiquette that one must follow when invited to her fancy events.
The former Real Housewives of Atlanta star is counting down the days for the lavish, well more like the baby shower of the year for her unborn child.
Kenya recently revealed that she and husband Marc Daly would welcome their bundle of joy on Thanksgiving Day.
Via Instagram, the former beauty queen laid down the rules and laws for those attending or not attending the gathering.
Kenya made it clear that she is expecting a gift even if the person she invites cannot make it to the baby shower.
The stunning businesswoman revealed: “RSVP literally means RESPOND PLEASE in French so if you get an invitation respond with a yes or no if you will be attending.”
She continued: “#Etiquette101 if you cannot attend a monumental life-changing event in a friend’s life, it’s nice to send a gift anyway. (Weddings, graduations, baby showers) Or it’s about class? It’s NOT about a dollar amount it’s to show you care the same way the person cared to invite you to share a moment in their life.”
Kenya had this to add: “LOVE this custom logo from @pinksugarshoppe can’t wait to see all the goodies for #babydaly, countdown to the baby shower of the year ?? #royalty #metgala #babyshower #babybump #kenyamoore #thatsmrsdalytoyou #love #family.”
Fans are confused and even a bit angry by the rule.
One person said: “So very happy for you! I’m 100% sure you’re going to rock motherhood just as you have everything else in your life! You really inspire me! I appreciate you sharing your life stories with the world. Smooches to you beautiful!”
Another commenter told the pregnant reality star: “I’m ecstatic for you. Watching your journey. God’s got you. Wishing you a lifetime of happiness. I’m sure you will be a fantastic mom. The screening procedure which reveals the gender of embryos is an extra step. If you don’t take the extra step/cost to find out the baby’s gender, you will not know until later. But asking for gifts is considered good etiquette? I’m confused. A friend got a rattle for her shower that probably cost $5, she was so pissed, especially because this person had the economic means to buy a reasonable price gift, so expect the worst.”

I wanted to share this 4D ultrasound we had months ago. It's so incredible you can see #babydaly moving its little arms and legs in utero. Technology is so advanced it's mind boggling to me! We see a high risk specialist who has this type of imaging and are so blessed to have access to this modern day miracle. #blessed #babydaly #4DUltrasound #myjourney #motherhood #love #family #joy #peace #miraclebaby
This fan shared: “@thekenyamoore I know your hashtag was #JustMyOpinion but it is etiquette, and it’s a well-known rule, so it’s not just an opinion it’s the way it is! Sorry but if you have to ask people to RSVP than they probably aren’t coming! Period.”
If a person cannot attend a baby shower/wedding are they obligated to send a gift? What are your thoughts on this?
