People mag: Kenya Moore and Marc Daly splitting after two years of marriage

Originally posted Thursday, September 19, 2019 by RODNEY HO/rho@ajc.com on his AJC Radio & TV Talk blog

Reality star Kenya Moore and restaurateur Marc Daly are ending their marriage after just over two years, according to statements given to People magazine.

“It is with profound sadness that I regret to inform my fans that I am divorcing my husband Marc Daly,” Moore said in the statement. “Due to recent and ongoing circumstances, I can no longer continue in the marriage. My sole concern and focus is and will always be my daughter, Brooklyn, my miracle baby. She was made in love and true commitment. I ask for our privacy to be respected moving forward.”

And Daly added a comparable statement: “I have come to the difficult decision to separate from Kenya at this time. Our daughter has two parents that love her very much and in her best interests, this situation should remain as private as possible. I cherish our family’s good times together and will continue to co-parent in a loving way. Rumors, innuendo or false accusations only serve to hurt our family and will be addressed through counsel as the law permits. Please respect our privacy during this challenging period.”

It’s comical when people like Moore, who relies on public drama for a living, requests privacy. 

Moore’s job was to parade her private travails before millions on television for social media scrutiny. Daly, on the other hand, relished life off the grid. 

They got married in secret without Bravo’s knowledge in 2017 and he avoided being on the show at all except for one scene at the end of season 10.

As a result, Moore and Bravo failed to come to terms season 11 but given season 11’s lackluster results, she was asked back this current season. Their break-up will presumably be a major part of her story line since the show is currently in production before returning in the fall.
