But Kenya isn't backing down, and now she's silencing those hateful rumors in a more proactive way.
She's posted a photo of her baby bump. Take a look!
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore has had to grapple with some nasty "theories," even more than your average reality star.
Some so-called "fans" have accused her of faking her pregnancy and marriage ... all evidence to the contrary.
The reason for these accusations basically comes down to the widespread reports that Kenya's job was in jeopardy last year after her secret wedding to Marc Daly.
(Marc also avoided Bravo's cameras for a long time, reportedly over objections to how black men are portrayed on the series)
Some fans were convinced that Kenya would do anything in order to stay relevant and interesting enough to stay a Real Housewife and avoid losing her peach.
Those accusations spilled into comments under her social media posts, and seemed to have her feeling rattled. That is understandable.
Hopefully, now that the world has seen this photo, Kenya can continue her pregnancy in peace.
Kenya's baby bump isn't the most pronounced that we've ever seen, but it's there.
Remember, we only learned that Kenya was pregnant ... gosh, it hasn't even been three whole months yet. And she said herself that she announced it very early.
Kenya included a caption, writing:
"Won't He do it? #godswill #love #hope #faith #family #God #peace"
Kenya and Marc used IVF in order to conceive, but it sounds like Kenya is relying upon her faith to see her through what could potentially be a risky pregnancy.
Having your first child at 49 can be a big deal, folks.
Kenya's fans and followers took to the comments to express and share their excitement.
"I'm excited for you can't wait to see your baby!!!!"
Others were more succinct, writing:
"Awww congratulations queen."
Some fans immediately thought about those who had trolled Kenya's comments with accusations that her pregnancy was just manufactured so that Bravo would keep her on the show.
"I guess They can All go find Someone Else to Hate on Now."
Some of her fans were positively jubilant ... about her very effective shut-down of haters and trolls.
"Twirl On 'THAT' All You haters. SHE GOT ALL OF YOU GOOD. HAHA."
That said, some people did decide to post comments that either betrayed their ignorance ... or were very shady.
"Are you with child?"
It's been common knowledge that Kenya is pregnant since the news broke back in April, but ... some fans can miss whole chunks of someone's life in the blink of an eye.
Still, it could be shade over her tiny baby bump.
(Baby bumps grow over time, folks)
Kenya is very sensitive when certain aspects of her family life are the topic of unfounded rumors.
This is her first pregnancy. Given her age (not that she's old -- just old to be pregnant), it's entirely understandable that she's touchy about it.
She's also happily maried to Marc, even though some people have tried to cast doubt on that, too.
We hope that the trolls will give Kenya some peace now that she's put her baby bump on display for all to see.
