Kenya Moore Speaks On Marc Daly
If you watched Sunday’s episode of “Real Housewives Of Atlanta” then you no doubt saw the moment that Kenya Moore had a breakdown over her marriage. Kenya was heard off camera weeping while telling a Bravo producer that she “didn’t want to get divorced.” According to her, the stress of her secret elopement to Marc Daly was wearing on her and her hidden hubby was feeling the effects too.
“This is really just f—— with him,” said Moore. “He can’t even sleep, he’s not eating. He’s got ex-girlfriends sending him things about me from 25 years ago [about] some famous guy I dated. Like, what does it have to do with now?”
“They don’t know me and everybody said he fought his mother and everybody for me,” she added. “This pressure is too much. It’s too much stuff going on. I don’t wanna get divorced.”
She also told the producer that she’s sick of people accusing her of having a fake marriage.
“It’s become public fodder,” said Moore. “‘She was just with this one. How the hell she married? Did she pay him?’ … He did not sign up for the crazy, he signed up for me!”
“It’s really scary how people don’t want to see you happy. I’ve been told so many times by people who just were not very kind to me that they try to make me feel like, you know, you’re not worthy of true love.”
Now in her Bravo blog, Kenya’s explaining why she was so emotional. According to her, it’s because she was “emotionally spent” and not in wedded bliss in the scene shot just TWO WEEKS after her wedding. Instead, Kenya said she worried about people tarnishing her husband’s image and love for her.
“You heard a very real and honest but very private conversation. I was emotionally spent and broke down after speaking to Brandon. I was only two weeks into my marriage, and as a newlywed, I was supposed be in wedding bliss, but I was not.
We were targeted with so much hatred, negativity, and interference at that time, and I was overwhelmed and emotionally drained. The things that people did to try to hurt us were incredible to me. I was breaking down over the things people would say to him about me in hopes of tarnishing his image and love for me.
I do regret sharing my feelings with someone that isn’t my husband. He just doesn’t deserve my s—. He’s done nothing but love me, so hearing people question his reasons for marrying me was hurtful. As a wife, I’ve had to learn that what is between us is between us. We are in this together, and he is my heart. We fight battles as a team, and together we have to deal with what comes our way. We are one. We solve our problems together and privately.
With that said, my husband Marc is a very strong and prideful person, and he is fiercely protective of me and my feelings. He will take on anyone or anything for me and has done so. I’ve never had anyone love me this way before.
The people closest to Marc are not unlike my dad initially. Some had questions because we were so private and married so quickly, and they didn’t know me besides my “image” on TV. However, it wasn’t quick to us because we fell so deeply in love, and we knew what we wanted in a lifelong partner and it took a lifetime to find each other.”
Kenya also added that both of their families support their marriage and she feels blessed to have her real man who doesn’t want to be famous.
“Now that we are married, the issues have all been resolved, and our families are all extremely supportive. I wish I could say that the naysayers have ceased and desisted with their empty rhetoric and cruel sentiments, but they haven’t.
Even though they are out in full force, my husband has my back. He knows my heart, and even when I have disappointed him, he never gives up on me. We are blessed, and our businesses are thriving. His restaurant @socobk is soaring, and we are expanding. Stay tuned for @socolive!
I thank God for my real man, my real husband, and my real family. A man who doesn’t want the spotlight, fame, or my money…just my genuine heart. God is good.”
Sit down haaaaaters! Do YOU still have doubts about her marriage???
More Kenya and Marc on the flip.
