After the premiere episode of the new "Real Housewives of Atlanta" season, fans were left confused over a scene where Kenya Moore asked one of her daughter's party-goers not to carry the little girl as her ex-husband would "have a fit."


In Kenya's Barbie-themed party for baby Brooklyn, a young man was seen holding the then-seven-month-old child. While the guy was never named, he was most likely a friend since he was seen moving around the party during the episode.

The man carrying Brooklyn could have easily been an innocent case of wanting to play with the little girl, but it was taken the wrong way by Kenya who hurriedly took her away from the man's arms.

No Men Allowed

As if reminding her hired nanny of the do's and don'ts of the job, which included not having other men carry Brooklyn, she said:

"Hold on, hold on. Marc would have a fit with having another man holding his baby."

While the nanny apologized for the distress she caused her boss, the guy, who understandingly gave Brooklyn back, was left wide-eyed over what just happened.


Kenya on Choosing Her Battles

During the confessional, Moore opened up about what happened a little bit more, saying she'd rather not get into arguments when possible.

“Listen, in marriage you pick and choose your battles, so please hand over the child, please and thank you.”


Fans were left confused over the situation and easily put puzzle pieces together in saying that Kenya and Marc split because of how toxic he is, based on his rule not to have other men touch his child.


Marc Daly's Constant Absence

Likewise, fans added that if Marc didn't want little Brooklyn to be around other men, he should be a tad bit more present.

Daly was unable to attend the party due to a business trip, but Kenya was sure he'd get a hold of the episode one way or another which was why she reacted the way she did.

Recently, Kenya opened up about her split from Daly, saying it was difficult to fight for something one-sided.


Kenya and Marc's Difficult Long-Distance Relationship

At the time, they were apart on a regular basis, with Daly living in New York where he runs several restaurants while she lived in Atlanta with their one-year-old daughter. Of their difficult setup, she said:

"If you’re living in two different places, you have to be together during the times you are in the same place; either you’re both in NY and you’re both in Atlanta. And when we’d be in the same place, we weren’t always in the same place. So with the businesses, the distance, and the baby, it just became hard for us to figure it all out.”


Focusing on Brooklyn

Aside from living in two different states, the lack of communication between the partners also took a toll on them.

Now that they're separated, the ex-couple are focusing on raising their daughter in the best way possible, reuniting whenever needed for Brooklyn's sake.
