Fans learned more about the estrangement between Kenya Moore and Marc Daly following her return home from Cynthia Bailey's bachelorette party in South Carolina. Kenya called his filing "a tactical move" in the RHOA Season 13 After Show.
During the February 28 episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kenya met with her lawyer to talk about next steps in her situation with Marc, which included filing for custody of their daughter, Brooklyn Daly. She noted that she didn't know what their relationship status was “because right now we haven't discussed anything about where our relationship is going." "We have been apart, but at the same time the issue with Brooklyn is immediate,” Kenya said in an interview in the episode. She also revealed that around that time, Marc had made her a romantic mixtape that she felt summed up his feelings for her.
However, it was during the episode that Kenya learned that her estranged husband had filed for divorce in New York that same week as the meeting with her lawyer featured in the episode. Kenya elaborated on the latest with Marc, including that mixtape and his choice to file for divorce, in the RHOA Season 13 After Show, which you can check out in the emotional clips above and below.
She also addressed that filing on Twitter: "For the record: Marc withdrew the divorce petition the next day and said that he was not asking for alimony in the filing and that we misinterpreted NY law. There has been no further divorce action to date. This scene was taped months ago." She added, "It's complicated."
Kenya mirrored that statement in the RHOA After Show.
Cynthia commented on the episode during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Sunday, sharing how she was there for Kenya at that time. "I was surprised about the money part," she said, adding that she spoke to Kenya after that meeting with the lawyer. "I have met Marc many times. I have spent time with him, I am actually quite fond of him. One of the things that I remember him saying was that he would never ask for alimony; he's self-made. He's very successful on his own, so I was surprised about the alimony part, as was Kenya, obviously."
Cynthia opened up more about Marc and Kenya in the RHOA After Show, in the clip above, noting that the mixtape gesture made her "a little optimistic" about the future for them.
In late January, Marc addressed the status of his marriage to Kenya.
"After recently attending mediation, Kenya and I have agreed to end our marriage. I will always have great care for her and look forward to amicably continuing to co-parent our daughter Brooklyn with an abundance of love and wisdom," Marc told The Root in a statement. "As always, in addition to perpetual self-improvement, my primary focus will continue to be helping the underserved and people of color in Brooklyn to recover from the negative impact of the COVID - 19 pandemic. This focus will take shape through using my restaurant as a 'Community Hub' where positive and diverse perspectives on important topics such as economic empowerment, social activism and political engagement can be highlighted in a safe and productive forum. I’m blessed to be a positive change agent for not just my family but also my community."
