Kenya Moore Says Her Husband Marc Daly Changed After Watching His Behavior On RHOA And Reveals She’s “Optimistic” About Saying Her Marriage; Says “I Would Like To Stay In This Marriage Because I Still Have Love For My Husband”

Kenya Moore is sharing an update on her relationship with her husband Marc Daly after their split. During a recent appearance on The Real, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star revealed Marc reflected on his negative behavior after watching the show back.

"We have had a tough time, and I think you guys have seen it on the show," Kenya said.

"I think Marc watching the show – we shot at like six months ago. I think he’s seeing himself and some of the things," Kenya explained. "We haven't gotten along then, but we are getting along amazing now."

When asked if she was open to reconciliation,, "Yeah, I think so," Kenya revealed, according to a report from OK!  Magazine. "I think that with counseling and really working on the relationship and being vulnerable, being honest, you know, just keeping it real, I think the breakdown happened when we stop communicating effectively. It just turned a corner and then just got really hard."

The former Miss USA explained how she and Daly co-parent since their splitting. "I think the first thing is to put the child first," she said. "Brooklyn is my entire world, so my focus has always meant to protect her and create the best environment for her and that is an environment with peace and love."

During a separate interview, Moore shared more details about her relationship and split with her husband. "We had a fight and, instead of giving that time to breathe and figure things out after that, you know, a decision was made," she told Entertainment Tonight. "Independent of me."

More and Daly got married ahead of Season 10 of RHOA and decided not to return for Season 11 due to pregnancy complications. Moore explains how the birth of her daughter Brooklyn affected her marriage.

"Once the baby came, things just, you know -- the stress of life made our relationship deteriorate, and we couldn’t find our way back to it," she admits. "But all in all, I still think that a rash decision was made."

"Where I am right now, and how I have been coping with it is, just being the strong person that I know to be," she continues. "I sort of compartmentalize things in my life, and I don’t let anything destroy me. I have the most amazing daughter anyone can ask for. Every day is a joy to me. Yes, my marriage is falling apart, but look at this beautiful daughter that I have! Her smile, energy, love that she gives me? I cannot be happier."

The couple would split their time between the two cities: Marc lives in New York City and Kenya in Atlanta before their separation. If they reconcile, Kenya says they'll have to pick just one city to live in together as a family.

"I would like to stay in this marriage because I still have love for my husband, but it has to change -- a lot of things will have to change," she flags. "Communication, number one. It has to always be respectful communication, even when you're upset, when you're hurt and when you're angry. Whatever the emotions you might be feeling at the time, you have to always keep in mind that you are a partnership, and you cannot take some things back. Once they're said or done, they cannot be taken back."

However, the former beauty queen admits that communication has been the estranged couple’s "biggest issue" from the start. "I think, being vulnerable, throwing away ego and pride is very important, because you can't really get to the bones of how someone really feels unless they're able to just put everything out on the table, and be really raw and vulnerable," she notes. "And I think the last part of it is just loving, knowing that you both are in this partnership and you both want to make it work and have a beautiful family. I mean, we have that and I would hate to lose it."

Moore says that becoming a mother has softened her, helping her prioritize her life including fighting for her marriage. "[Being a mom] makes you look at you differently, and I just have a different appreciation for life and all things that I’m living for," she shares. "That is my legacy, how I raise this child, how we raise Brooklyn."

Moore also reveals that she would like to have more children."I see Brooklyn, and she is the life of the party," she gushes. "We are on the plane and she is walking down the aisle, 'Hi, hi , hi...' Like, it's all about her, she's just hosting everyone on the plane. So that's interesting to see her be so outgoing and special, and she loves people and she loves other little kids, and I would like to see her with a playmate growing up. I think she will be a great big sister to someone and... I don’t know, fingers crossed."
