Is the Real Housewives marriage curse hitting Kenya Moore already?
Moore’s secret wedding took a toll on her during the last episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. The star began stressing her new husband out so much that she feared divorce was in their near future.
Moore revealed that Marc Daly was already feeling the pressure of their public relationship and it “was just f**king with him.”
Her marriage drama was the main focus of the episode. While she began saying she was “still on cloud nine,” she eventually ended up in tears over her rocky relationship.
“I literally have been married for all of five minutes but I have to say, getting married was the most amazing time in my life,” Moore told Cynthia Bailey on a walk through the park. “I think I’m still on cloud nine. Did I really get married? Did I really walk down the aisle?”
Moore described how she and her new love met at a restaurant that he owned. She remarked on their romantic encounter and gushed about his success.
“My husband is a former Wall Street banker, entrepreneur, he does what he wants to do and he is very successful with what he wants to do.”
She explained to Bailey: “My husband and I met but we didn’t start dating until months later. I wasn’t in a serious headspace to have a relationship I needed to do a lot of work on myself. But right now, I’m in a totally different space. I worked on myself. I got my husband. He’s everything I prayed for.”
A newly single Bailey was saddened by the conversation, reflecting on her own divorce. “Looking back, I wish I had done more to protect my marriage.”
Moore’s joy, however, was short-lived.
“This is not his world,” she admitted about her spouse. “In his case I feel like I need to be his protector. My husband is just feeling overwhelmed because he’s a private person. So, for him to now be the subject of every blog site internationally is insane to me.”
While twirling around in her wedding dress, Moore seemed unhappy about her living situation. “It’s challenging not having my husband with me in the same city. Until we figure it out, this is just how it is. 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.”
She began sobbing and a producer tried to calm her down off camera.
“You know we were supposed to be going to church tomorrow, the preacher [will] bless our wedding. It’s just f**king with him. He can’t even sleep he’s not eating. He’s got ex-girlfriends sending him things about me from 25 years ago. Some famous guy I’ve dated. Like what does that have to do with now?”
The producer told her: “He’s got to fight the fight,” and Moore sobbed: “Everybody saying he fought his mother, everybody for me. I’ve been told so many times by people who were not very kind to me, they try to make me feel like you’re not worth of love. And all this pressure it too much. It’s like too much stuff going on.”
“I don’t wanna get divorced,” she wailed.
