In the words of Kenya Moore: “Don’t come for me unless I send for you!”
On Sunday’s emotional episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” the “Gone with the Wind Fabulous” singer details the moments that led to her and husband Marc Daly announcing their separation last September.
While speaking to co-stars Kandi Burruss and Cynthia Bailey, Moore claims she saw text messages between her now-estranged spouse and one of his exes.
“One of the women was begging him to keep the sex going even though that he was married… She was like, ‘You make me feel this way, that way, is there any way we can keep this going?’” Moore said on camera. “That woman, he still communicates with after I told him, ‘This is inappropriate.’”
After learning that the two were still talking, Moore decided to confront the woman over phone.
“I called the bitch, too, which I regret that I did,” she recalled. “She answered the phone and I said, ‘You might want to take me off the speakerphone, this is Ms. Marc Daly.’ … And I proceeded to let her know if she came anywhere else near my husband, I know where she lives.”
Though Moore then had a “big blowout” with Daly, he eventually apologized for his alleged indiscretions.
“And I just said, ‘Okay. That was your one mess-up.’”
However, the two did get into a nasty fight after a charity event just days before their separation announcement.
“We went to the event and he just seemed very irritated the whole time we were there. Not loving, not being nice to me. He was just like, saying little things under his breath. It just seemed everything I was doing was an issue,” Moore said. “And then, I don’t know what happened, but he ended up getting in the Uber and we took off and he was just like, livid. He was like, ‘I didn’t even want you to come.’ Somehow I ruined his night.”
Per Moore, the situation “got really out of hand,” with Daly being asked to exit the vehicle by the rideshare driver.
“And I told him he can’t come back here.”
Though Moore said her intention was never to split from Daly, she said she learned from her publicist that Daly was allegedly going to release his own separation announcement behind her back.
“He kind of forced my hand… Everything just happened so fast.”
On September 19, both Moore and Daly gave statements to People about their split.
After marrying on a St. Lucia beach in June 2017, the couple welcomed daughter Brooklyn in November 2018.
