In early September, Kenya Moore revealed that she would be joining Season 30 of “Dancing With The Stars” on Instagram. “Yaaaayyyyyy! So excited to join the cast of @dancingabc,” the reality star wrote in the caption. “This has been a dream of mine for over 20 years! This is for you @thebrooklyndaly and my late grandmother Doris who introduced me to dancing through a community center in Detroit!”
Kenya made her “DWTS” debut on September 20, where she danced to Doja Cat and SZA’s “Kiss Me More” alongside dance partner Brandon Armstrong. So far, the Detroit native has advanced to the next rounds and looks like she could be some fierce competition. “You did that!!!!! #detroitallday,” comic Loni Love wrote under Kenya’s clip from Week 2. Though fans seem to be excited about Kenya’s “DWTS” gig, Bravo reportedly isn’t.
According to sources close to TMZ, Bravo sent out an ultimatum, asking Kenya to choose between “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and “DWTS.” Kenya reportedly ran her dancing gig by True Entertainment, the production company behind “RHOA,” which didn’t see any issue. It’s also worth noting that Kenya isn’t the first Atlanta star to appear on “DWTS,” as Kim Zolciak-Biermann and NeNe Leakes both participated in the show. According to the same report, Kenya and Bravo agreed not to let “DWTS” crossover into “RHOA.” So, once she’s done with the dancing competition, Kenya is expected to start filming for Bravo.
