Kenya Moore: can she stay on RHOA if her husband refuses to join in?

Kenya Moore, assuming a TMZ report today is correct, is facing a tough decision: her husband or "Real Housewives of Atlanta." 

The Bravo producers naturally were taken aback when she got married off camera last month in St. Lucia to New York restaurateur Marc Daly. It has filmed the marriages of Kandi Burruss, Cynthia Bailey and NeNe Leakes. It has also watched the dissolution of marriages, including those of Phaedra Parks, Porsha Williams and Bailey.

Daly wants nothing to do with the reality show because of the way it portrays black men, TMZ said.

The show wants him on camera for obvious reasons. Relationships are the backbone of the show and it hamstrings production to shape a good story line if a main character refuses to show her spouse on camera. (This is not like Norm on "Cheers," whose wife Vera was never seen, only referenced.)

Moore, who joined the show season five and has made a lasting impression, loves the attention and hungers for the spotlight. But she has been also hungering for a long-lasting relationship, as she has noted frequently on "Real Housewives."

This is her first marriage and she doesn't want to jeopardize it, TMZ notes.

So she may have to sacrifice the show and the six-figure income if she wants to maintain her marriage.

Moore has also made it known she wants kids. At age 46, she's trying IVF and hoping for the best, TMZ said.
