Celebrity News

In September, Kenya and Marc Daly announced their separation after two years of marriage, but on a recent episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kenya revealed to her co-star, Kandi Burruss, that her and Marc's marital problems date back to shortly after their wedding.

Although the couple appeared to be happily married in an intimate ceremony in St. Lucia, the reality star revealed that she spent her honeymoon without her husband after an argument about whether or not to bring their nanny on the trip. Kenya explained that her desire for intimacy and alone time are nearly two years in the making, alleging that Marc wasn't too fond of her growing baby bump, and she eventually began to wonder if the dry spell in their marriage would ever end.

"That was heartbreaking to me. He is in love with Brooklyn, there's no doubt about that. As much as I want that, being a mom and seeing my husband bond with the baby, I'm left on the sideline a lot of the time. When are we going to be intimate? When are we going to have time for ourselves?"

Kenya went on to explain that although many of their arguments tend to be petty, they signify a deeper problem that exists within their dynamic:

"He'll admit, 'I am a fighter. I like to fight.' But there are issues, underlying issues in our marriage that we are not dealing with. It's like, you're fighting about the glass on the table but that's not what you're fighting about. You're fighting about the glass on the table, and you're just not talking about it. And I feel like a lot of that is going on."

While Kenya considered herself to be non-confrontational when it comes to relationships, she feels that her husband favors a different approach, making it even harder to find common ground.

"I just feel a lot of times stuck, 'cause I don't want a conversation to elevate to a full-blown argument because he doesn't compromise. I'm not a fighter [in relationships], I want peace. I like to resolve issues. I don't want to be fighting with my husband like this. I want to be like we were."

Although there are characteristics about her estranged spouse that Kenya is still in love with, she broke down in tears when describing how tumultuous her marriage has come.

"When he's upset, it's like he's no holds barred. He can be funny and smart and helpful and supportive but then when he gets mad, it's like an alter-ego comes in from the depths of hell."

Despite her current marital issues, Kenya told People that she "didn't get married to quit" and is still very much in love with the father of her one-year-old daughter, Brooklyn:

"I love my husband. I don't doubt that he loves me. Let me be clear, I took my vows seriously. I believe in for better and for worse and I believe in trying it all before you walk away, especially when we do have a child and we are a family."
