Kenya Moore separated from her husband, Marc Daly, because she believed it to be in the best interest of their daughter, Brooklyn Daly. The Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA) star tells PEOPLE exclusively that her baby’s happiness remains her number one priority.
“I just feel like there’s always been this block up of him not letting me completely into his life,” Kenya says of her tumultuous relationship with Marc. “It’s just a lot of things I felt like I was in the dark about it,” the RHOA star shares.
Marc Daly and Kenya Moore’s challenges came to the forefront during a recent episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. She went to great lengths to ensure his first charity event was a success. He, however, did not express gratitude for all of her hard work and spoke to her in a manner that disturbed some of the ladies in the group.
Marc ultimately dismissed himself from the show and announced his plans to divorce Kenya following the charity event. Kenya responded to the announcement with a statement of her own while still expressing a desire to work through the issues plaguing her marriage. Moore eventually settled on the notion of her marriage ending.
“I want to be happy, and I could have been happy in my marriage if I felt like Marc was in it to be happy as well,” Kenya tells PEOPLE. “One of my issues with him is like, not being able to just have a conversation without yelling or anger or crossing lines,” she reveals. “I’m like, ‘I know it’s not me. I know how hard I’ve fought for this marriage.'”
Moore further explains, “I stopped caring about my feelings all I was doing was trying to be everything he wanted me to be and work through everything as best I could to keep my family together. I have to do what’s best for [my daughter]. I don’t even care about me.”
