Kenya Moore says it’s official — she’ll be twirling into season 16 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Moore shared the news with a fun video posted to Instagram on April 12.

The clip showed the former Miss USA dressed in an evening gown and twirling to her 2012 “Fabulous” song. At the end of the video, she holds up a peach and takes a bite.

Moore captioned the post, “I may be ‘Gone With the Wind Fabulous,’ but I’m not going anywhere!”

The post was filled with congratulatory replies, including from the official Bravo account and from her frenemy Porsha Williams.

Bravo replied, “They want More? We’ll give them Moore.”

Porsha wrote, “Sweet 16. Twirl on that.”

On Feb. 13, the network announced Porsha is returning to RHOA for season 16 after inking an overall scripted talent deal with NBCUniversal Entertainment. She previously appeared on the show for seasons 5 to 13.

Following 14 seasons on the show, Kandi Burruss said earlier this year she was leaving after growing tired of waiting for Bravo to tell the cast members if they’d be welcomed back amid slumping ratings.

“It’s been 14 seasons, and they allowed us to sit around for a little too long, but during that time I had started working on a lot of other things, and I got some nice big projects coming soon, so I’m super excited about those things,” Kandi said.

She isn’t the only housewife to exit RHOA over the past few weeks.

Marlo Hampton confirmed she won’t be returning for season 16, and executive producer Andy Cohen spilled the tea on his Sirius XM radio show that Sanya Richards-Ross was out.

Bravo has not yet said if season 15 cast members Drew Sidora and Shereé Whitfield will return.

Earlier this week, Drew landed a role on the upcoming Bounce TV comedy series Mind Your Business alongside Columbus Short.

Urban Hollywood 411 asked her publicist, Dominic Friesen, if she would remain on RHOA. Friesen replied, “For years, Drew has successfully balanced the challenges of shooting multiple projects and motherhood. The addition of Mind Your Business to her demanding schedule will be no different.”

Kenya is now the longest-running member of the RHOA cast.
