Kenya Moore was caught by paparazzi outside the world-renowned Barbados Fertility Centre this week.
Sources claim Kenya and hubby Marc Daly are trying to get pregnant.
Kenya and Marc will reportedly spend the next few weeks in Barbados while Kenya undergoes IVF treatments.
RHOA cameras were not rolling.

RHOA has made it clear that Kenya must show her new husband on the next season of RHOA or she will get fired.
Producers have told Kenya the only way she can stay on the show is if they can film her with her new husband Marc Daly. According to TMZ, the issue is the former banker Marc doesn’t want to be on the show, because he has problems with the way ‘RHOA’ portrays black men.
TMZ is reporting that Kenya told producers she’s waited 46 years for her marriage and doesn’t want to jeopardize it.

Tyson Beckford and Kenya Moore appeared on Watch What Happens Live last night and took turns taking shots at their respective targets.
When asked what he would do if he got stuck in an elevator with Breezy, Tyson responded,
“One of us is coming out alive and it’s me. I still don’t got no respect for dude. I feel bad for him.”
Then added the kicker, “Drugs is a motherf*cker.” Yikes.
Kenya didn’t hesitate to add her two cents when Andy Cohen probed Tyson as to what drugs he thinks Brown could be using.
“The same one Matt’s on,” she added.
Kenya also confirmed she and Phaedra will never be friends, following last night’s episode of ‘RHOA.’
Kenya’s relationship with Phaedra should be the last thing she’s worried about, especially when there’s an alleged bombshell that’s going to come out during the reunion.
Wendy Williams is never one to hold her tongue, especially during her popular “Hot Topics” segment. Wendy’s unfiltered honesty has gotten her in trouble with the show’s sponsors in the past, and it looks like the talk show host is being dragged once again for hitting below the belt on a touchy subject in reality star Kenya Moore‘s life.
Wendy dished on the super trailer for Real Housewives of Atlanta season 9, where Kenya and Sheree Whitfield throw jabs at each other’s luxury homes. After years of stalled renovations, ‘Chateau Sheree’ is apparently up and running, while Kenya’s modern pad ‘Moore Manor’ (or as Sheree calls it, need more work manor) needed some extensive repairs. “My name is on the home,” Kenya is heard saying to Sheree. “Your mother’s name is on Chateau Thelma.”
Wendy addressed Kenya’s insult with a low blow of her own. “Kenya dear I love you but the reason why Sheree mom’s was able to be on the mortgage is because her mother actually loves her and she opens the door for her when she comes over to the house.”
Kenya Moore fans quickly got wind of the comment and spilled some of Wendy’s own tea in their clapback. “Wendall u would think that almost losing your son to drugs u wouldn’t belittle a relationship a mother has w/her child,” one fan account tweeted.
Kenya Moore is commonly portrayed as the aggressor on the show, but has also been open about the tender subject of her mother’s abandonment. The former beauty queen recalls her mother, who was only 15 at the time, giving her over to her grandmother at 3 days old and never having a presence in her life. Sadly, Kenya says to this day her mother pretends she doesn’t exist and even ignores her at family gatherings.
Did Wendy go too far with this one? Sound off in the comments.

Sometimes even when taking the high road, you can’t resist the urge to throw a little well-placed shade at your enemies. Vivica A. Fox knows exactly how that feels because today she once again put her former reality show co-star and ongoing nemesis, Kenya Moore, in her place with some juicy shade.
While visiting The Wendy Williams Show this morning to promote her upcoming film Independence Day: Resurgence (she returns for the 1996 film’s sequel and co-starred in the original as Will Smith’s love interest) host Wendy Williams turned the conversation to Fox’s recurring role on the FOX hit series Empire as Cookie Lyon’s older sister Candace and asked her how she got the role. Let’s just say things got pretty shady after that.
Fox stated that Empire creator Lee Daniels watched her memorable boardroom showdown with “toxic trick” (Fox slyly omitted saying Kenya Moore’s name) while the two were competing on Celebrity Apprentice that convinced him he had to have her on the show. She goes on to say that Daniels kept his word and a mere three months later he called her and asked if she wanted the role of Candace.
Known to never miss an opportunity to engage in shade and messiness, Wendy Williams further probed Fox about her time with Moore by asking her if she had spoken to Moore since filming for the show wrapped. Fox replied with classy shade and said, “No I haven’t seen her [since the finale], I’m too busy having a legitimate career…and making sure people get paid.”
The claws are definitely still out and you can bet that Kenya Moore will have a response that is filled with a hefty amount of shade of her own.

Carmelo Anthony Visits Rikers: Calls For Reform
Carmelo Anthony turns documentary filmmaker in a new special for Vice Sports.
The basketball star went inside infamous Rikers Prison in New York, to interact with inmates and to learn the living conditions and treatment of the prisoners.
‘The dormitory was mind-boggling. It was like a big sleepover. I think they said it’s 32 people in there. It’s no division. So you’re sitting in there, you’re eating in front of everybody, you’re changing your clothes in front of everybody. That s–t is sad,’ he explained in the video.
The NBA player is calling for reform, saying that prison should offer more than just confinement.
‘I know it’s a prison, but prison should be more of a rehab,” he added. “I know people, family members, close friends, that are in there that just came home. And you can see — some of them do better when they come home, some of them are worse off,’ the New York Knicks forward lamented.
Having grown up in the projects in Red Hook, Brooklyn, the trip to the prison was personal for Anthony. It’s one of his many charitable efforts, including restoring basketball courts in Coney Island and the Bronx.
It’s so powerful to see ball players using their platform for good.

Scoring an interview with Kenya Moore is like striking gold. So when she called us up to gab about everything from RHOA to landing a man from the show Millionaire Matchmaker (at the time of the interview, it wasn’t known that Kenya’s man was married), we had to pick up the phone and she did not disappoint.
We also got the chance to chat with Deion Sanders, who we love more and more each time he stops by. He’s the consummate husband, father and support system. Asking him the same things we asked Kenya proved to be a hilarious good time. Check out what Deion and Kenya have to say about dating outside their race, dating over 40 and what it takes to meet the one.
What’s the best thing about dating outside of your race?
Kenya Moore: For Black women, we just have to be open because there’s not a lot of eligible bachelors, that are Black, for us to choose from anymore. If you take away the ones that are gay, in jail, this is a real issue. Statistics show why we don’t have the choices. You take the ones that are gay, in jail, don’t have a job, the ones that are already married and the ones that are dating and marrying outside our race, what do you have left? You don’t have much to choose from. The nicest thing is that you have options.
Deion Sanders: I don’t do that! I got Tracey. I’m straight!
What are some advantages in being single over 30/40?
KM: I think you know who you are at 40. Women over 40 are the baddest women on the planet. Really, we are. You own who you are, you have so much confidence. You’re in a place where you have a career, you have a place, you have money, at this point you should be successful. You’ve learned patience. You know what works for you. I think it’s the best time in a man or woman’s life to get married. The divorce rate is much lower because you know who you are and what you bring to the table.
DS: You know yourself, you know what you want and you have the whole world to go get it. You’re too old for games. You ain’t got time for it.
Do you think that using unconventional ways of meeting someone–like online, “Millionaire Matchmaker,” etc. work better than traditional dating?
KM: I remember very clearly in my 20s, I had a roommate that met someone online and I remember how taboo it was. “You did what?! You met someone where?! You’re going to go out on a date with somebody you met online!?” It was just so shocking that we felt that this person was putting herself in danger to meet a serial killer and now it’s just completely the opposite. It’s more efficient. You can quickly discern what you like and what you don’t. You just have far more options and I think Internet dating, matchmaking services, the less conventional ways back in the day are just a thing of the past. Now, it’s for more effective to open and broaden your horizons as to what options you have out there for dating. I 100% think that online dating, match maker services in addition to your friends and conventional ways of meeting people is absolutely acceptable now.
DS: I don’t really like the unconventional ways, but I have heard that it works for some people. I want to talk to you. I don’t want to text you. I want to get to know you. Then I want three references. Give me your momma number, you last boyfriend that you fell out with and somebody that don’t like you so I can find out all about you.
MORE HE SAID/SHE SAID:
Vivica A. Foxx is looking mighty good these days. The “Chocolate City” star stopped by “Watch What Happens Live” to chat with Andy Cohen about the upcoming stripper flick when she dished on her beef with Jimmy Kimmel and took kind shots at her rival Kenya Moore.
Who knew Viv and Jimmy had beef?
For the record, Vivica won’t be getting back with 50 Cent anytime soon.
Despite their beef, Vivica says wishes Kenya is a beautiful woman but would stop with the stunts.
Porsha Tweeted About Kenya’s Married Man A Week Ago
Oop! Now this is getting juicy.
The Internets went wild yesterday, when it was revealed Kenya Moore’s Millionaire Matchmaker boo James Freeman had married someone else in April. According to Kenya, she learned about the union via social media.
Well that’s odd.
Kenya’s RHOA cast mate Porsha tweeted he was married on May 3.
In case you missed it, Kenya posted a Facebook message alluding to her and James spending time in Vegas during the Mayweather fight.
The shade didn’t stop there, Kenya’s Apprentice enemy Vivica Foxx chimed in on the situation too.
Something just isn’t right about this whole thing, but clearly Patti Stanger, Millionaire Matchmaker has some explaining to do.

When we chatted with Kenya Moore, two weeks ago, she told us she is “in a great place in my life,” we guess she didn’t see this coming. According to reports, her Millionaire Matchmaker boo James Freeman recently got married…not to her. How? When? Did she know he was engaged? Was it all a setup?
Earlier this month, Kenya alluded to her own engagement of sorts when she posted a photo of a ring (on her finger) on Facebook with the caption, “Anything can happen in Vegas [heart emoji].”
Odd since James got married to Jaimi Gregory Freeman in April.
During a phone conversation about the RHOA reunion, Kenya spilled the tea on the man she once called “Prince Charming.” “I’m really gun shy. Even though I know we met on reality TV, I feel like I need to guard that situation,” she said. “I don’t need to live it in public, I don’t need to tell people or post pictures on Instagram. I just want to enjoy where I am right now. A lot of people are excited for me, so I just have to take baby steps. I’m in a great place in my life. Whether it works out or it doesn’t, what makes me feel good is that I’ve inspired other people. Nearly 43 percent of all Black women have never been married, I feel like I give hope to women who want that.”
Kenya responded to the controversy today, saying:
“Unfortunately, I just learned today that the man I met and fell in love with on Millionaire Matchmaker was married a week after the show aired. I am astounded and devastated to have learned this news via social media instead of from him directly. However I still believe in love and my heart remains open to the man God has for me. I wish him well.”
Welp, good thing life twirls on.
Kenya Moore isn’t the type of woman you want flirting with your man. With a gorgeous face, perfectly sculpted behind and charming hazel eyes — she’s definitely a threat. Don’t expect her to say the same about her costar and arch enemy NeNe Leakes.
According to the Kenya, if NeNe “walked into a room,” no one would “hold onto their husbands,” which is why she’s been able to get away with flirting with Peter and Kenya’s still defending herself after the pool fiasco with Apollo.
Since Kenya’s twirlful debut on RHOA, she’s kept the Sunday night favorite in a constant shaken state. This season, her friendships with Claudia Jordan and Cynthia Bailey flourished, but the tension between her, NeNe, Porsha and Phaedra swelled to Louboutin heel height. Bring on the reunion.
The first two parts of the RHOA reunion special aired these last weeks bringing with it, shady moments that ended in screaming matches. Phaedra called Kenya a “whore” again, Porsha refused to apologize and NeNe, well NeNe transformed to Nay Nay and well ballistic when Kenya mentioned how she once flirted with Cynthia’s hubby Peter. (NeNe denied it.)
RHOA may have made Kenya a household name (if you didn’t know who she was already), but the former parent queen has been acting since. Peep her appearance in Waiting To Exhale. It was only a matter of time before she produced a movie or show on her own. Insert Life Twirls On. (We too think it’s a ridiculous name). A rom-com starring Leon (his fine self), Cynthia Bailey and Janet Hubert.
Earlier this week, Hubert claimed, in a Facebook post, that she filed criminal fraud charges against the reality star for “falsifying official time sheets.” Kenya didn’t say much about the situation, but did reassure us Hubert’s claims were “false,” during a 30-minute chat about everything you want to know.
Catch the tea, below:
HelloBeautiful: Can you explain the animosity between you and Phaedra on the reunion?
Kenya Moore: I think Phaedra has never moved on. I’ve fought for two years to clear my name. I’ve apologized before to her and she’s never accepted any of those peace offerings. So the when the reunion came around, we were talking casually about everything that happened and I think I was pretty open and honest and she called me a “whore” again. At some point, it’s very clear who would like to move on and who would. Phaedra is stuck and she doesn’t want to forgive, though she made it seem that way.
HB: If you were in Phaedra position would you be able to forgive you?
KM: Yes. Because it’s your duty to forgive other people. Flirting is one thing. I think for me being playful — other people consider that as being flirtatious but if you know my personality, I’m naturally playful, I’m naturally flirtatious. I’m like a big kid. I think if you were trying to do something sneaky you would do it behind everyone’s back. I think if she really believed that I was truly flirting with him, she wouldn’t have gone on to continue be friends with me — which she did. She wouldn’t have gone to business with me — which she did.
HB: How do you feel about NeNe saying unmarried cast members should be kicked off the show?
KM: There’s a lot of shaming done on our show between NeNe and another friends. They feel as though because they have a husband they are in a better position than single women. You can walk down the street, or go to a prison yard and find a man willing to marry you. I think it’s a bad message to send to the beautiful Black women out there — the 43 percent of us — who have never been married to say ‘You’re not as good as we are because you’ve never been a wife or you aren’t married now.” Anyone can be married, it’s who you choose to marry.
HB: Why do you think NeNe got so upset when you said she flirted with Peter?
KM: We all saw her flirting talking about how chocolate he was and how fine he was. Like, stop lying, These girls on this show – they want to call people delusional but they are the most delusional. Clearly everybody watched that and just the way people can say I flirted with Apollo, she flirted with Peter. The difference is she’s not a threat to anybody. She’s not a woman, who other women – if she walked into a room — would hold onto their husbands. Let me just be clear about that. That’s why no one made such a big issue of it. Maybe it didn’t go quite as far as the incidents that happened with Apollo, but clearly she was flirting. My point was…people flirt it doesn’t mean they’re trying to sleep with you. It doesn’t make you a whore. It’s innocent flirting.
HB: What was your reaction to Porsha not wanting to apologize to you?
KM: I wasn’t shocked. That was expected because I’ve seen her for an entire year say the same thing. I think she is who she is. I think she’s shown us her true colors. This is the same woman who believed that the Underground Railroad was a train that took slaves to freedom. As the grandfather of someone who was so instrumental and so active in the Civil Rights movement – as the granddaughter of that person – you think physically putting your hands on someone is appropriate then what else can you say to someone who has that kind of impediment? I think she is limited in her comprehension and morally limited. Your grandfather would be rolling over in his grave if he saw half the things that you are doing now.
HB: Is there any truth to Janet Hubert’s claims she wasn’t paid for her role in Life Twirls On?
KM: Those are all false. I don’t fight legal battles on social media. Everyone in my production was paid.
HB: You found love on Millionaire Matchmaker, can you tell us a little about Mr. Right?
KM: I’m really gun shy. Even though I know we met on reality TV I feel like I need to guard that situation. I don’t need to live it in public, I don’t need to tell people or post pictures on Instagram. I just want to enjoy where I am right now. A lot of people are excited for me, so I just have to take baby steps. I’m in a great place in my life. Whether it works out or it doesn’t, what makes me feel good is that I’ve inspired other people. Nearly 43 percent of all Black women have never been married, I feel like I give hope to women who want that.
Kenya Moore’s wedding dreams have come crashing down around her in the trailer for her sitcom “Life Twirls On.”
The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star was a lovely bride in the preview she dropped today, but her big day didn’t quite go as planned in the preview. Instead of exchang vows, Kenya was threatening to show him “50 shades of crazy” in front of all of their guests before calling off the wedding.
Now she’s doing her best to put her life back together as she moves in with her sisters, played by D.Woods and Adryian Rae.
There’s a good chance that this might be the project that sparked that beef between her and Janet Hubert because she appears in this preview alongside Leon. We’re sure Cynthia Bailey may have had something to do that casting.
Speaking of Cynthia, you’ll finally get to see Cynthia in the role she had that insane audition for this season on “RHOA.” Kenya must have liked what she saw because she didn’t have Cynthia change a thing about her performance.
Snatches wig off and throws it to the floor.
After 22 episodes of constant back and forth bickering, the peaches of RHOA sat down to hash out their differences once and for all. Who are kidding? nothing seems to have been solved, but by the looks of a recently release teaser clip, shade was in abundance.
NeNe (or should we say Nay-Nay), Kenya, Phaedra, Cynthia, Kandi, Porsha and Claudia Jordan looked fabulous in white as they sat down with Andy Cohen to chat about season 7.
At one point, NeNe says “Well the thirst is real” and Claudia bites back, “That hair looks thirsty.”
Things took a turn for the worst when NeNe and Kenya got into a shouting match. “You ain’t gonna disrespect me and my husband b*tch, this ain’t Phaedra,” NeNe blasted. Yikes!
Watch the spicy clip then tune in to Bravo on April 26, 2015 at 8pm to watch part 1 of the reunion.

The ladies then joined hands and shared an “Amen” followed by a genuine hug. Vast improvement from where their relationship was weeks ago when Phae almost whopped Kenya with her clutch.
