Kenya Moore suspended indefinitely from 'Real Housewives' for 'revenge porn' allegations

Updated

Kenya Moore has been suspended indefinitely from "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" by Bravo following claims of "revenge porn."

The 1993 Miss USA is being paused by the network after an altercation with new cast member Brittany "Brit" Eady, a source familiar with the situation but not authorized to speak publicly tells USA TODAY. The Atlanta iteration of the network's popular franchise recently reshuffled its cast with newbies and former show stars after fan criticism.

The network, which is currently filming its 16th season of the show, announced last month that returning cast members Moore, Porsha Williams, Shamea Morton Mwangi and Drew Sidora would join newbies Eady, Angela Oakley and Kelli Ferrell as full-time peach holders alongside former "RHOA" personality Cynthia Bailey as an official friend of the group.

Kenya Moore, seen in her dress from the most recent reunion of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," has been suspended indefinitely from the show, according to a source familiar with the situation but not authorized to speak publicly to USA TODAY.

'RHOA stars file for divorce: Drew Sidora and Ralph Pittman splitting

According to People and Entertainment Tonight, Moore was suspended for unveiling photos depicting Eady, an insurance mogul, allegedly participating in a sex act during the recent grand opening of Kenya Moore Hair Spa in Atlanta. It is not currently clear if Moore will return to the cast.

In an X post earlier this month, Moore addressed the revenge claims surrounding her and Eady.

"I would never engage in revenge porn, I have never distributed private images or footage of anyone, nor solicited images owned by others to use to threaten or blackmail," Moore said on the platform on June 8, adding a fire emoji. "I have always been vindicated. I can’t talk about STORY even with people planting fake news #sweet16"

The Bravo show isn't lacking storylines in its search to return to glory.

Moore, who has been busy building her hair care empire, and Sidora, who is divorcing husband Ralph Pittman, are the only returning cast members from last season. Williams is also splitting from her husband Simon Guabodia as the TV personality filed for divorce shortly after announcing her return to the franchise. Bailey has also since divorced her ex-husband, sports commentator Mike Hill, since cameras last followed the ins and outs of her life.

Eady isn't the only cast member shaking up the Atlanta peaches. Oakley is married to NBA legend Charles Oakley while Eady, who is successful in the insurance industry, is joined by best friend and restauranteur Kelli Ferrell of Nana's Chicken-N-Waffles fame.
