Now that Kenya Moore has a baby(doll), her life is about to get way more complicated. In this sneak peek clip for next week’s all-new episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta (airing April 6), the former pageant princess breaks down during a good old-fashioned cry-fest with her aunt Lori. And we think it may have something to do with her plastic newborn.

“You were there with her,” Kenya’s aunt says lovingly.

“But I wasn’t there to protect her!” the RHoA star shouts back, tears rolling down her cheeks.

But the sobs really start when Lori breaks the bad news: “She’s not coming back.”

Who’s not coming back? Our best guess is her new “baby,” a lifelike doll that’s programmed to cry when tired, hungry, or needs a diaper change. The baby is also programmed to “communicate” with Kenya’s parent coach, who receives an alert if she’s been abandoned or hasn’t been fed. In other words, this is a really big responsibility — but Kenya insists she’s ready for it.

“I’ve already had some practice,” she says confidently about her foray into motherhood. “I’ve been a mother to my puppy baby for seven years and I think I’m absolutely ready.”

Because puppies are just like babies, right ladies?

We’ll have to wait until next Sunday to find out why Kenya’s in hysterics, but in the meantime tell us your theories in the comments below!
