Kenya Moore’s pregnancy is moving along and she recently posted an ultra-sound of her baby on social media.

But she has been dogged by skeptics about her pregnancy from non-fans. The latest one is Wendy Williams, who on her talk show, said the following:

She is 49 years old, Kenya is reportedly pregnant, if she is pregnant at this particular point, I guess she would be 3 or 4 months. Is that 3 or 4 months pregnant?

I mean Kenya is not a small girl, so you figure she would be showing more, I don’t know. It smells like haze to me. Ugh….. But, doesn’t look pregnant to me Kenya.

Here’s the ultra-sound Kenya recently posted.

There are rumors she is no longer on “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” which was reported last week.

Marlo Hampton - a recurring character on “Real Housewives of Atlanta” - almost starred in a new reality show on WE-TV called “Haute Lanta.” But the Atlanta-based program got nixed at the last second.

The show was already in pre-production and was listed on the Georgia film and TV site for a brief moment. It was supposedly focusing on Atlantans in the fashion business.

It’s a bit murky why the show was cut. JasmineBrand has sources offering conflicting reasons. 

“Haute Lanta” was being produced by Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker. They had previously produced TV One’s “Hollywood Divas” featuring former RHOA star Lisa Wu

Other folks who were supposed to be on the show: “Project Runway” alum Ken Laurence, former ‘The Fashion Show” contestant Reco Chapple, celebrity gossip blogger Funky DinevaKontrol magazine editor Julian Clark and more.

Cynthia Bailey, who still looks fabulous at age 51, just signed with a modeling agency Major Model NY. (She owns her own modeling agency as well.)

TheJasmineBrand reports that Bravo has already promoted 33-year-old Eva Marcille to full-time status for season 11.

She entered “Real Housewives” mid-way through season 10 as a recurring character without causing too many waves. 

Marcille, who won “America’s Next Top Model” season three, just had a baby boy with her new husband and attorney Michael Sterling, who ran for Atlanta mayor last year. 

Bravo does not typically announce full-time participants until later in the summer and the show has changed its mind midway through production in the past. Shooting for season 11  recently began.
