‘RHOA’ Producers Were Reportedly Pushing For Kenya Moore And Marc Daly To Renew Their Vows Before They Split
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore has officially split from her husband of two years, Marc Daly. The couple announced their shocking separation this week amid rumors that Daly was living a double life in New York. But before the reality star parted ways with Daly, RHOA producers reportedly pushed Moore to renew her vows so they could feature the ceremony on season 12.
‘RHOA’ Producers wanted Kenya Moore to renew vows before her split
Inside sources claim that producers urged Moore to renew her vows in front of the camera. As fans will recall, Moore and Daly tied the knot in a secret ceremony in 2017.
Not only did the wedding not make it onto the show, but Moore lost her spot the following season because she refused to allow cameras into her personal life.
But with the couple struggling financially, Moore agreed to be more open in front of the cameras, especially when it comes to her marriage.
“She’s not going to put her job in jeopardy again,” the insider revealed. “Kenya Moore has been warned that she has to share her whole life on RHOA, and if he doesn’t want to film with her, then they don’t want to film with her.”
Did they split over ‘RHOA’?
All of this reportedly went down before Moore and Daly announced their split. In fact, their marital problems will be a major storyline in season 12 of RHOA, with the season ending right around the same time as their breakup.
According to All About The Tea, Moore took issue with how Daly was spending most of his time in New York, leaving her to raise their daughter all by herself.
An insider claims that Kenya Moore talked about Daly’s living situation on the show and completely broke down because she felt like she was all alone.
“She said on camera how much she was having to deal with, and the pressure was really intense,” the source stated. “She was in crisis mode and really broke down while filming. It was intense.”
The source added that Moore has been taking on the bulk of the parenting duties while Daly is away and that it just became too much for her to handle. While it sounds like Moore was in a difficult situation, this isn’t the only reason things didn’t work out with Daly.
Daly confirms split
The cast and crew of RHOA are currently filming their annual cast trip in Greece, where Kenya Moore’s co-stars are reportedly confronting her about her breakup.
Daly recently confirmed the split in a statement to the media. He did not reveal too many details about the breakup, though he did say that they are focusing on their daughter’s well-being and plan to keep things private.
Apart from raising their daughter on her own, sources claim that Daly has been living a double life in New York.
Sources say that Daly rarely goes to Atlanta and spends the vast majority of his time at his house in Brooklyn – and apparently for good reason.
While Kenya Moore has been taking care of their baby, Daly has been seeing someone else in New York. He also allegedly has children with his mistress, though nothing official has been confirmed.
The insider believes that the only reason Daly married Moore was because she promised to pay off his debt. But once filming for season 12 started, Daly realized that being a part of the reality show wasn’t worth the paycheck.
Kenya Moore’s co-stars question her behavior
There is still a lot of mystery surrounding Moore’s abrupt split, but her RHOA co-stars have reportedly grown even more suspicious about the relationship.
Several of her co-stars are reportedly wondering if Moore’s entire marriage was a huge scam to get her peach back. During season 10 of RHOA, Moore was pulling down around $1.5 million per season.
She took a drastic pay cut in season 11 for only appearing as a guest. That year, Moore is believed to have earned around $500,000.
Based on what we know about Moore’s promise to renew her vows, it sounds like producers only wanted her back as a package deal.
There is no telling what the series will cover in season 12, but we should get a lot of answers when the show returns this fall. It will also be interesting to see how Kenya Moore’s co-stars are dealing with the split, and how it might affect her future on the show.
Season 12 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta is scheduled to premiere sometime in November on Bravo.
