He is real and he is her husband. The mystery surrounding Kenya Moore's husband finally came to a head on the Season 10 finale of The Real Housewives of Atlanta when Marc Daly surprised his bride (and everyone else) by showing up to the launch of her PSA about domestic abuse.
Kenya revealed to The Daily Dish podcast that Marc's hesitance to be on camera this season created some issues in their relationship and her relationships with the other women.
"I think in the beginning it was just a lot to deal with: being married and having to figure out all of it at one time, and, you know, my husband not necessarily wanting to be in the spotlight and on TV," Kenya told podcast hosts Rachael Roberts and Megan Segura.
Kenya explained the shy Mr. Daly likely won't be watching his Housewives debut, either.
"He doesn't watch the show," Kenya said on the podcast. "He doesn't like to see the girls fighting and things like that."
Fans wouldn't be surprised to hear Marc was absent from the Season 10 reunion set, too. "None of the husbands were there, actually," Kenya said. However, viewers know that isn't entirely true as Kim Zolciak-Biermann was accompanied by husband Kroy Biermann. When asked about Kroy's presence this season, Kenya took the Daly approach: the men should stay out of the drama.
"It was a bit intimidating because I remember when [Kim] threw her phone at me," Kenya recalled, speaking about Nene Leakes' White Party. "All of a sudden, I look up and Kroy is standing over me, and he's a big guy, and obviously his wife is upset."
The experience left Kenya feeling uncomfortable with having the husbands too close to the confrontation among the women. "You're looking up at this big football player with an angry wife, and so it wasn't fair to us," she said. "You can't just show up when your wife is having a fight and jumping in the middle of it or intimidating other castmates that are women."
