The RHOA has been put on hold for the Grammys and the Superbowl. They are coming back next week during the Oscars to introduce us to the cookie lady. Will anyone still care about the cookie lady by then? Did we ever care about the cookie lady? Who decided to put RHOA on during awards season and the Superbowl?
Anyway, someone has to remind us that RHOA still exists so Kenya Moore Daly has decided to vent her spleen to ET. And for once she had a lot to say. Even more surprising, she seems to be speaking her truth without any of her cryptic statements.
Kenya Moore Daly celebrated her 49th birthday last Monday and told ET that her vision for the year includes a successful marriage, a healthy, happy, Brooklyn, and the expansion of her businesses.
Thoughts On Her Marriage
Kenya Moore Daly now says that Marc announced their split publicly without talking to her beforehand. They had a fight and he made a rash decision. She says that the stress of the baby, and co-parenting in two different cities put a lot of strain on the marriage and caused their relationship to deteriorate, and they couldn’t find their way back to a good place.
“Where I am right now, and how I have been coping with it is, just being the strong person that I know to be, I sort of compartmentalize things in my life, and I don’t let anything destroy me. We are still apart, but we are better friends now than we have been in a very long time.” Kenya claims, “We’re co-parenting great. We are going to be going to counseling soon. So, I’m optimistic.”
And yet, there still seems along way to go before a reconciliation could happen. Kenya admits, “I would like to stay in this marriage because I still have love for my husband, but it has to change, A lot of things will have to change.
“Communication, [is] number one. It has to always be respectful communication. Even when you’re upset, when you’re hurt and when you’re angry. Whatever the emotions you might be feeling at the time, you have to always keep in mind that you are a partnership. You cannot take some things back. Once they’re said or done, they cannot be taken back.”
“I think, being vulnerable, throwing away ego and pride is very important. Because, you can’t really get to the bones of how someone really feels unless they’re able to just put everything out on the table, and be really raw and vulnerable. And I think the last part of it is just loving, knowing that you both are in this partnership and you both want to make it work and have a beautiful family. I mean, we have that and I would hate to lose it,” Kenya Moore Daly admits.
On Being A Mother
“I have the most amazing daughter anyone can ask for. Every day is a joy to me. Yes, my marriage is falling apart, but look at this beautiful daughter that I have! Her smile, energy… love that she gives me? I cannot be happier.”
“[Being a mom] makes you look at you differently, and I just have a different appreciation for life and all things that I’m living for, That is my legacy, how I raise this child, how we raise Brooklyn.”
“I see Brooklyn, and she is the life of the party,” she gushes. “We are on the plane and she is walking down the aisle, ‘Hi, hi , hi…’ Like, it’s all about her, She’s just hosting everyone on the plane. So that’s interesting to see her be so outgoing and special. And, she loves people and she loves other little kids. I would like to see her with a playmate growing up. I think she will be a great big sister to someone and… I don’t know, fingers crossed.”
Kenya doesn’t seem willing to live permanently in NYC and expects Marc to move to Atlanta. That seems to be a major roadblock. Plus, Marc just doesn’t seem that into Kenya, to put it mildly. What do you think? Do these two have a chance? Also, are you missing RHOA or starting to think you could live without it?
