Kenya Moore had lots to say to her critics who accused her of trying to drink during her pregnancy. Moore recently announced she’s pregnant.
Moore kicked off The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion by saying she and her husband Marc Daly are expecting. This is the first child for Moore, who has been very vocal about wanting children. While her announcement took place in Part 1 of the reunion, Moore got lots of negative attention as she asked for the cast to get cocktails when things got heated during Part 2 that aired Sunday, April 15.
It didn’t take long for Moore’s critics, including recurring cast member Marlo Hampton, to accuse her of either faking her pregnancy or trying to drink while pregnant.
Hampton was one of the first to point Moore’s request on social media.
Who asks for a cocktail after just revealing a pregnancy? @Andy @BravoWWHL better get a EPT test lmao https://t.co/t3mY0NOGDY — Marlo Hampton (@iheartMarlo) April 16, 2018
Fans followed suit and shared their own thoughts on Moore asking for a drink. One questioned why Moore was asking for alcohol just after announcing her pregnancy.

Another made it clear Moore doesn’t need a drink.
Ok I wish all the ladies the best on RHOA, but @KenyaMoore umm the last thing you need is a cocktail after saying your pregnant! #whosaidthat #stoplying — HOUSEWIFE INDAHOOD (@CHOCOLATEBLIS2) April 16, 2018
One speculated that Moore is adopting or having a surrogate carry her child.
If she is adopting or a surrogate why hide that? First reunion she says a baby is coming and the second she askinh for cocktails. #suspect — Tracye J* (@Pokalicious) April 16, 2018
Another echoed similar sentiments and suggested Moore never confirmed she is actually carrying the child.
Everyone is talking about how @KenyaMoore mentioned getting cocktails tonight, but wasn’t she pregnant?.... She said that she and Mark would be welcoming a child. She didn’t confirm that she was pregnant. #rhoa #rhoareunion — Delainey Maughs (@Delainey81) April 16, 2018
One fan pointed out that Moore's co-star NeNe Leakes possibly challenged Moore’s cocktail request when she reminded Moore that she was pregnant.

Another said she's convinced Moore isn’t telling the truth about her pregnancy.
Why would @KenyaMoore say “can we get some cocktails” if she’s pregnant.... I smell a fish! #RHOA — Sheila (@SheilaG6868) April 16, 2018
Moore didn’t waste time to clap back.
“I joked about asking for a cocktail during the filming,” said Moore in her Bravo blog. She also pointed out that whether she was pregnant or not, she knew she wouldn’t be getting one as alcohol has never been given to the ladies during the reunion taping.
“Very disturbing to see people doubting my pregnancy as a result of a silly comment,” added Moore.
She added that her critics should take a look within themselves to see why they have such an issue with her. Interestingly enough, she thanked her archnemesis turned friend Porsha Williams for standing up for her when Moore’s alleged request for cocktails went viral. She went on to comment and say that the criticism she’s received is a major reason she doesn’t reveal details about her life to the public.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 concludes with Part 3 of the reunion special Sunday, April 22. It airs on Bravo at 8 p.m. ET.
