'Real Housewives' Star Reportedly Used 'Last-Ditch Effort' to Avoid Being Fired

Producers are said to be "watching her carefully."

Kenya Moore's pregnancy may be what's keeping her afloat on Real Housewives of Atlanta.

The reality star's decision to keep her surprise marriage off camera didn't go over well with producers this past season.

With her time on the show rumored to be ending if they couldn't develop an exciting storyline for her, Moore's announcement that she's with child seems to be exactly what was needed to keep her around for more episodes.

"Kenya was offered another contract but not necessarily as a full-time housewife," a source said to Radar.

"The producers still don’t really believe that she is pregnant so until filming happens, and the story unfolds, they’re not guaranteeing her anything."

The source added that having a baby was Moore's "last ditch effort to keep her job."

In fact, producers are said to keeping an eye on the RHOA star, "watching her carefully to see what she delivers."
