Kenya Moore went public with her sudden marriage in June — much to the surprise of her Real Housewives of Atlanta co-stars.
The former Miss USA did not invite or inform any of her RHOA co-stars to her top-secret St. Lucia wedding and upon hearing the news of the nuptials on social media, her co-star Kandi Burruss, naturally assumed Kenya was faking it.
“I called [Kenya] when I saw it online, I was like, ‘Um, are you really married? Is this fake or is this real?'” The mother-of-two told Life & Style while laughing. “And she was like, ‘Yeah, I got married.'”
Kandi isn’t the only one feeling blindsided by Kenya, 46, tying the knot – the Xscape songstress explains why RHOA producers and fans are upset at Moore for keeping them out of the loop!
“You have to understand that, [producers] would want us to see her get married or to see her find true love,” she explained.
“You know, our fans, they’ve been with us through our highs and our lows, and if they miss out on a moment like that… people are going to hate that they didn’t get to see it because you saw the crazy side, you want to see the happy side too.”
To add insult to injury, Kenya reportedly does not want her husband, Marc Daly, on the show and doesn’t want any video or photos from her wedding to be used on RHOA. Understandably, that seriously handcuffs show producers as far as her storyline for next season. As a result, production has issued the former Miss USA an ultimatum — chronicle your new marriage or breach your contract.
Additionally, Moore’s new man objects to the portrayal of African-American men on the reality series and declines to be apart of a show that has made his wife a millionaire.
The mom of two also reveals that while she knew Kenya was in a relationship, she never met Daly — and was unaware a rush to the altar was in the works.
“I had not met him in person but I knew about him,” Kandi said of her now-husband, Marc Daly. “She talked to me about him. I knew she was in a relationship and that she was happy. I did know that. But I didn’t know she was going to get up and get married, but I am happy for her.”
Only time will tell if Mr. Twirl will prance his way onto our television screens in November. Stay tuned.
