Just like the fans, Kenya Moore’s Real Housewives of Atlanta costar Kandi Burruss was shocked by the news of her surprise marriage to Marc Daly. In fact, Kandi didn’t even get a heads up before the news went public. She found out about it online just like the rest of us and she didn’t believe the reports were true.
Neither did anyone, but they actually are. It wasn’t even captured for the RHOA cameras. Nevertheless, I’m sure the shocked reactions from the cast members will be a part of the upcoming season.
In an interview with E! News, Kandi admitted, “I had to call her like ‘Yo! You’re married?’ Because I was thinking maybe it was fake. And then she’s like, ‘Yeah, I’m really married.'”
Kandi was really in the dark when it comes to this whole scenario and I’m not just talking about the secret wedding part. The singer revealed, “I have not met him personally but she has talked to me about him since last year, towards the end of the year. So I knew she had met someone that she had really liked.”
But clearly Kandi (like everyone else on the planet) had no idea how serious that relationship was until she read about it in (several) headlines.
Now that the dust has settled on the sudden wedding news, the big story now is whether or not Marc will appear on Real Housewives of Atlanta since he is reportedly not at all interested in being on reality TV. Kandi shared her insight: “I don’t know what he wants, but I’m confident that she’s afraid to jeopardize her relationship with what comes with the show, which I understand.”
Kandi continued, “It’s a lot of tension. And for somebody that’s never been on TV, it’s a lot of pressure and it would have to be something for him to get used to. And not everyone is able to get used to it.”
Maybe Marc can pull a Tom Girardi and just appear here and there without being a major part of the story lines. Then again, this whole thing is a story line that can’t be avoided. It should be interesting to see what ends up happening.
