Real Housewives of Atlanta: Why Kenya Moore kept Marc Daly’s identity a secret

Marc DalyMrs. Carter: Kenya Moore has now officially revealed that Marc Daly is her husband, but why did she keep his name a secret for so long?

Days after news hit the web regarding her recent Caribbean wedding to the businessman, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star is opening up further about why she hid the identity of her partner. Speaking to People Magazine, she made it clear that one of the biggest reasons was to ensure that the focus of the relationship remained on what mattered more than anything else:

“He didn’t sign up for this world, I did. Every time someone has been associated with me, they attack that person – immediately going after them, trying to bring them down and saying crazy things. They tear people apart. And so for [Marc], he was like, ‘This is about me and you — it’s not about me or you.’ He just wanted it to be about our pure love and not about him. 

“That’s why I fell in love with him … For him, it’s about being my protector and my best friend  — not being someone that stands next to me, but someone who supports me and is okay with being behind me sometimes. He doesn’t want my money, he doesn’t want my fame, he doesn’t want my success — he just wants my heart, and he has it.”

In putting Daly’s name out there now, it is clear that Kenya’s husband will be dealing with fame a little bit more than he had through most of his relationship with her; with that said, the aftermath of the wedding was probably causing more press intrusion than there would be if his name was already out there. Anytime that you keep something from the media, they’re of course going to chase you down and pound down the door until they get answers. It may not be right, but this is the unfortunate pattern that we’ve seen from time and time again.

New episodes of The Real Housewives of Atlanta will start airing on Bravo a little bit later this year, and it remains to be seen just how much of a role Marc is going to have in it. For now, you can read a little bit more news on that department by heading over to this link. (Photo: Bravo.)
