“Kenya had a meltdown,” an insider revealed told Radar Online. “She is really struggling being basically a single mom” since her husband, Marc Daly, works so much in New York City.
The 48-year-old washed up beauty queen’s marital issues and parenting struggles will be front and center on the upcoming season 12 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
“She said on camera how much she was having to deal with, and the pressure was really intense,” the source said. “She was in crisis mode and really broke down while filming. It was intense.”
“Kenya feels like she is doing all of the parenting in the relationship, and it is overwhelming for her,” the source told the outlet.
“Marc has only been to Atlanta a few times to film with Kenya and the baby, but he doesn’t live there and he isn’t there full-time,” the source continued. “Kenya is in a long distance relationship and that is hard as a mom, as a wife, and as someone on a reality show.”
The former Miss USA took a drastic pay cut to return as a “friend” of the show, earning only $500,000 compared to her previous salary of $1.5 million.
Marc Daly owns and operates Brooklyn eatery, SOCO, and spends most of his time in New York, where his other kids, family and friends reside.
“Kenya is all alone,” the source noted. “It is a lot to take care of baby Brooklyn by herself, and she shared that on camera.”
“Kenya is an open book this season and she’s sharing everything she feels, especially how as a new mom she is feeling a lot of pressure,” the insider told Radar.
As reported, the couple is dealing with financial hardships. According to court records, Kenya Moore’s husband was hit with a whopping $111,205 federal tax lien amid his wife’s Real Housewives of Atlanta salary cut.
