Admittedly Kenya Moore is the proclaimed star of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta”. Her well versed comebacks and readiness for any attacks coming her way is what made the public fall in love with her. The show without Kenya felt a tad bit stale, and without direction. So, Andy Cohen probably understood the need for someone of her caliber to maintain the ratings. Even with Nene still there the fans were not satisfied, but when these two come together the tea is piping hot, and the drama too much to look away from.
Every reality show has to have a villain. Kenya does it well, but is this role seeping into her personal life? The relationship between her and husband Marc Daly from recent episodes seems strained. Whenever on camera Marc looks visibly uncomfortable and without desire to discuss the petty issues going on in their toxic friend group. It was telling when Marc sided with Nene Leakes over Kenya concerning their intense quarrel. He even wanted to invite her to an event that Kenya was throwing.
Now, maybe girl code or guy code falls through once you reach a certain age. Is it now okay for people to side with the enemies of their partner? That is the question that should be asked. If Nene is beefing with Kenya and even tried to get into a physical scuffle with her, shouldn’t Marc as her husband always defend her? Or to play devil’s advocate is Marc being mature and looking at the situation for the silliness that it is.
At the end of the day what is important in a relationship, especially a marriage with the accompaniment of a child, is unity. There has to be an element of “we need to be on the same team” no matter what. Unless of course one of you commits an insidious crime. If your husband is Ted Bundy then yes, do not side with him that should be common sense. With Kenya being a social butterfly and Marc’s quiet nature, maybe opposites don’t attract.
Could the reality show curse be invading the Daly household? Wendy Williams who helped to make these franchises popular said with confidence that these things ruin perfectly normal relationships, she was right. Since Marc does not enjoy the spotlight wouldn’t it have been better for Kenya to drop out of the race. To leave the housewives for good and live a beautiful life with her cute family. It seems as if people do get addicted to fame after they’ve tasted it, and can’t get enough.
