We Finally Got To See Kenya Moore’s Husband On The Real Housewives Of Atlanta…And It Was Odd
The Real Housewives of Atlanta gave us a surprise last night when Kenya Moore’s husband “unexpectedly” showed up for a very important event that she hosted and organized. And I’m sorry, but the way it all happened was odd…and so was he.
I’ve been waiting to see the man that Kenya has been fawning over throughout this season. She has expressed how much she has changed since getting married, and she has been transparent about how her limelight has been challenging for her new marriage. All of the other cast mates have been asking whether they would be able to meet her new beau, and as each episode passed, it seemed like that would never happen…until last night.
In what I believe to be was a poorly scripted scene, Kenya told the other cast mates that her husband, Marc Daly, would not be able to attend a very important domestic violence gala. It was something that the 47-year-old hosted and organized, and the subject matter itself was very personal for her.
So, the other ladies, of course, had some shady things to say. I mean, whose husband doesn’t show up for something near and dear to his wife’s heart like that? I don’t care if he lives in New York, and she lives in Atlanta. That’s a two and a half hour flight for pennies when you’re a restaurateur.
But the “cardboard man” indeed showed up in real life, and Kenya’s BFF, Cynthia Bailey, was especially happy to finally meet him.
“Now that the Marc Daly mystery is solved, the haters can just shut up,” she said.
Well, I’m no hater, but besides being handsome, which is undeniable, I’m not sure what else makes him so “re(marc)able.” In fact, he came off as very odd to me, and unlike Sheree Whitfield, his oddness has nothing to do with him having a nose ring.
Marc’s conversation was very banal (a word that I hated hearing when writing papers on subjects I loathed in high school). When Sheree asked him what he thought of his wife’s PSA campaign, he simply said, “It was amazing.” (ugh).
And when he was asked whether they would settle down in New York or Atlanta, he only said, “It’s the million dollar question.” (ugh).
I was waiting for him to throw in a, “…it does. It really does” or maybe a “That is really unique.” The unoriginality was killing me. With all that melanin, there was absolutely no color this man. It could have been the editing (probably not) or it could have been that he was super nervous…I don’t know. But it was odd. There was no personality. No nothing. All very Stepford Wives-ish.
I’m not the one married to him, but I do have an opinion. Do I believe that this is a real marriage and that Kenya is in love? I do. But it would have been nice to see Marc emerge from his shell, if that’s what was really going on. Otherwise, it is distressing to think that the “cardboard man” offered a little bit more than the 3D version. IJS.
