Kenya Moore’s life has been full of drama recently

Though many of us witnessed the demise of Moore and Daley’s marriage, things might be turning around for the couple. “He’s in New York and since this show started airing – actually no – after Brooklyn’s birthday, which was in November, things just turned around,” Moore said during an appearance on Fox Soul’s Out Loud with Claudia Jordan. “He has been very kind, very respectful, very loving, and he wants his family to stay together. And I don’t know what the end result will be but he’s definitely working on the marriage.”

In addition to her marriage, Moore has also come to blows with Nene Leakes this season. It even appeared that Leakes spit on Moore at one point. After Leakes blatantly took Daley’s side during several arguments, Moore got fed up. “Nene has very few friends,” she told TMZ. “She’s absolutely a bully. I don’t take any kind of advice from Nene… definitely, not about wigs.”

Kenya Moore’s top beauty secret tips

Despite the drama in her personal and professional life, Moore has managed to continue looking ageless. Though the 49-year-old swears by Ocean Remedies Krill Oil,  her top beauty secret is actually much simpler than you would think.

“To start with, obviously hydration — it’s really important during this time to stay hydrated and healthy,” Moore explained to Hollywood Life. “So I think just keeping your skin hydrated, working out and trying to try to eat as healthy as you possibly can…but hydration, I would say, is number one.”

Also, while the former USA adores glam for work and the show, makeup is not an everyday thing for her. “I just don’t really wear makeup,” she revealed. “Unless I’m just feeling bored one day and I’m like, ‘Oh, I want to you know, treat myself to a face today. [I keep my skin] clean. I make sure that I don’t sleep in makeup, that I do a thorough cleansing and moisturizing before I go to bed. So, you know, keep it simple.”
