Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey claimed in a recent interview that costar Kenya Moore is still "very much in love" with her estranged husband Marc Daly. Kenya announced that she was ending her marriage on September 17. In the days that followed, it was reported that Marc had had multiple affairs during their two year union.
Cynthia, 52, sounded hopeful while discussing her pal's sad split. "This is her first marriage. I think she went into it for all the right reasons. She is still very much in love with her husband, and who knows? Maybe they can still work it out in the end,” she told Us Weekly.
Kenya, 48, and Marc, 49, wed in a secret ceremony in St. Lucia in June 2017. They welcomed daughter Brooklyn in November 2018.
Cynthia continued, "I think they both deserve to be happy whether they’re together or not, and I’m not the kind of mom or parent that thinks that you have to be with the father of your child to be able to be good parents to your children. I personally don’t think that because you have a kid with somebody is the only reason to stay with that person.”
As OK! readers know, Kenya and NeNe Leakes have had multiple blowouts fights while filming season 12, and Cynthia has remained firmly in Kenya's corner. Cynthia revealed that she was aware there were "issues" in Kenya and Marc's marriage, but she didn't realize how bad things had gotten between them until they announced they were calling it quits.
"I knew there were some issues. I’m not going to lie about that. She shared a lot with me, but I didn’t think it was anything that couldn’t be fixed. I just was really rooting for them, especially since they have this new beautiful daughter together. However, I’m seeing Kenya, and nobody’s in your bedroom with your man but you … I want her to be happy because I know what it feels like to be in something and not have peace," Cynthia explained.
Kenya took to Instagram on Friday, September 27 to let her fans know that she was taking her split in stride. "Me and my baby, we gon' be alright, We gon' live a good life," she captioned a photo of herself and her daughter while referencing Beyonce's song "Sorry."
