The official Real Housewives of Atlanta season 11 trailer and cast photo have been released — and Kenya Moore is nowhere to be seen.
The official cast photo features L-R: Kandi Burruss, Porsha Williams, Cynthia Bailey, NeNe Leakes, Eva Marcille, and Shamari Fears DeVoe, wife of New Edition singer Ron DeVoe.
Kenya Moore ran afoul of Bravo producers when she ran off and got married to restauranteur Marc Daly without Bravo’s permission. She also announced her pregnancy at age 47 — without Bravo’s permission.
So it appears Kenya’s peach was snatched and handed to Shamari — who is not the ratchet type. It’s unclear how Shamari will fit into the cast of aging spinsters and long-suffering housewives.
Shamari and I share a mutual friend, who says Bravo producers literally begged Shamari to appear on the show. Every other Atlanta socialite Bravo approached has turned them down over the years.
But don’t worry, Kenya fans. She’ll be back. Expect Kenya to make cameo appearances next season after her baby is born.
