“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” showed the purest form of marriage in shambles according to the producers who witnessed Kenya Moore and Marc Daly’s issues together.


Fans of Kenya Moore had front row seats to watch her real life up close, including her marital issues with Marc Daly in Season 12 of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."

The cameras followed the pair and captured their most heated moments down to their decision to go separate ways.

Despite bearing in mind that they were being filmed, Moore “never tried to put a positive spin on her marriage,” producers revealed. Everything she allowed the world to see was “open and honest.”

According to the producers, things between the couple gradually went from bad to worse, until reaching the end of their marriage.

Before announcing their separation, Moore shared that she and Daly tried to make their marriage work by going to counseling.

Although they never actually saw the two fight in front of the cameras, it was evident that they did not “get along,” noting that being with the pair was “definitely uncomfortable.”

During Daly’s Black Man Lab charity event, many could feel the tension between the former couple, including Cynthia Bailey and Eve Marcille.

Producers were aware Moore hoped her marriage would turn out well; hence, it was heartbreaking to see how it instead slowly fell into pieces.


In April, months after announcing their break up, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star announced that their relationship may still have a chance. Moore would often give updates about her life with him.

The reality star revealed that although she was not in quarantine with her estranged husband, the two were doing better than how they did after getting married.

Moore admitted that her husband has shown care and thoughtfulness more and stays in her home during visits to the area.


Before announcing their separation, Moore shared that she and Daly tried to make their marriage work by going to counseling, which at that time, seemed like he was making an effort to fight for their family.


Moore and Daly tied the knot in June 2017, and share a beautiful daughter, Brooklyn Doris Daly, who they continue to co-parent.

Brooklyn is often the subject of her mom’s social media account, posting her daily activities amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

In one recent video, Brooklyn was seen out on the patio of their home, calling out for her dad, who was away for work amid the stay-at-home order.
