During a new interview, the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member suggested that her husband of two years didn’t take his wedding vows seriously before dishing on a potential reunion and what it would take for them to get back together. She also reacted to the cheating rumors against him.
“I didn’t get married to quit,” Kenya told PEOPLE magazine in their latest issue. “I love my husband. I don’t doubt that he loves me. Let me be clear, I took my vows seriously. I believe in for better and for worse and I believe in trying it all before you walk away, especially when we do have a child and we are a family.”
While Kenya confirmed that she and Marc haven’t yet filed for divorce and noted that she would love to reconcile, she said she “doesn’t get the sense that [Marc] feels the same way.”
“I am hopeful, and have always wanted to work on our relationship. But I just don’t know if that’s even a possibility at this point, honestly,” Kenya admitted. “Marc doesn’t seem to be there. I’d feel more comfortable calling it quits if I knew I’d tried everything and it still didn’t work. And we definitely didn’t do everything we could have done to save our relationship.”
Kenya and Marc announced plans for divorce in September, just two days after Kenya deemed Marc “the love of [her] life” during an appearance on The Tamron Hall Show. As RHOA fans may have seen, Kenya joked about Marc getting upset with her on the way to the appearance for sharing a photo of him shirtless on her Instagram page.
Although Kenya would love to get back together with Marc, she said their communication skills are poor and added that her efforts to get her husband into marriage counseling have been in vain.
“Counseling could be a big proponent in flushing out issues a couple may have… and I never got that opportunity,” Kenya explained. “I’m not saying that opportunity may not exist in the future. But I just don’t have a complete sense of if that’s something that he’s still willing to do.”
Following their split announcement, Kenya and Marc haven’t seen one another at all but are “pretty civil” at this point in time as they continue to raise their daughter together.
In regard to the rumors of infidelity, Kenya said those reports are “completely made up” and have “zero truth.”
“That’s not our issue,” she explained, noting that her and Marc’s struggles were based around their long-distance relationship.
“The distance had really been taking a toll on us,” she shared. “Initially when we had the baby, it was great. He was there for every single doctor’s appointment, every ultrasound, every scare, we were 90 percent together. He was a very supportive husband during that time.”
Months later, after opening two new businesses in New York City and working on a third, Marc began spending less and less time in Atlanta.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta season 12 premieres on Sunday at 8 p.m. on Bravo TV.
