On Wednesday, May 11, Jenkins appeared on a candid episode of “The Real” to debunk rumors she would be getting a peach on “RHOA.”
The TV personality, who welcomed a daughter Monaco with Jeezy on January 11, put a pin on the speculations, saying:

The “How Do I Look?” Alum replied that the chatter was nothing but a total rumor as she and her management have not spoken to anybody from Bravo about joining the reality TV series.
Despite that, Moore wished her friend would join her in the series. She said, “Girl, you would make an excellent Housewife. You could come on as my friend.”

Bringing a child to the world is no easy feat, as seen when Jenkins got candid on social media about how she was getting back on her feet after childbirth.
In January, The Blast disclosed that the style expert expressed that becoming a mother was “the most exhilarating moment” in her life, but nothing could have prepared her to raise a baby.
Jenkins took to her personal Instagram page with a photo of herself sporting a pair of grey ‘Fridamom’ disposable briefs as she healed from childbirth.
The “How Do I Look: Asia?” alum opened up about postpartum healing in the caption of her post, writing:
“While being a new mom is the most exhilarating moment I have ever experienced in my life— nothing prepared me for postpartum. NOTHING. No book I’ve read, the advice I’ve gotten that could have compiled ALL the things I’d need just to sit, lay down, walk, or even hold our baby,” Jeannie captioned the pictures.”
Jenkins noted that she took her photo only a few days earlier and praised the briefs brand for their comfort. She concluded:
“The 4th trimester has been the hardest trimester yet, but I’m a happy, healing mom over here.”
Fans and friends supported the star in the comments. A user agreed about the briefs, writing, “I loved those. Someone gifted me them at my baby shower, and omg. The best gift.”
A mom gave her a word of advice about navigating postpartum life as a new parent, typing, “Take your time. Everyone’s journey will be different. Ask for help when you’re feeling overwhelmed. You’ve got this.”
