It’s Splitsville! Kenya Moore & Marc Daley, Announce They’re Divorce After 2 Years of Marriage!

We really wish we could “say it ain’t so,” but the swan song has played and it’s official Kenya Moore, and her husband, Marc Daley have announced they are divorcing. The beautiful couple are calling it quits after just two years of marriage. To some it comes as a shock, to others it was expected as Marc was never to keen on being on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, or Kenya’s return to the drama of the series–and there’s been plenty leading up to the debut of the twelfth season.

We really wish we could “say it ain’t so,” but the swan song has played and it’s official Kenya Moore, and her husband, Marc Daley have announced they are divorcing. The beautiful couple are calling it quits after just two years of marriage. To some it comes as a shock, to others it was expected as Marc was never to keen on being on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, or Kenya’s return to the drama of the series–and there’s been plenty leading up to the debut of the twelfth season.

kenya moore and marc daley divorce

It is with profound sadness that I regret to inform my fans that I am divorcing my husband Marc Daly. Due to recent and ongoing circumstances, I can no longer continue in the marriage. My sole concern and focus is and will always be my daughter, Brooklyn, my miracle baby. She was made in love and true commitment. I ask for our privacy to be respected moving forward.”

We really hate to see Marc and Kenya break up. They are such a beautiful couple. It looks like the reality television curse on relationships continues. This all also comes as a shocker to us after we just saw them discussing their fertility issues on the Tamron Hall Show,  where she discussed having to stick herself with hormone shots and take suppositories just so they could conceive little Brooklyn. Hopefully these two will be great co-parents and maybe even friends for her sake. Well Kenya welcome to RHOA these next two seasons for you are about to be LIT!

[EVENT RECAP] Rishawn Felton’s “Breaking The Cycle Empowerment Conference!”

Atlanta is an “eventful” city, and we mean that in the most sincerest terms. Indeed, there is an event for everything you can think of; business launches, re-branding, fashion shows, and even potato chip bag reveals (we are not joking). Seldom, however, at any of these events will you find food for your soul, medicine for your spirit, and genuine empowerment to fuel you through life. Thankfully, local Atlanta fashion stylist and philanthropist, Rishawn Felton, managed to give us just that with his panel discussion at the aptly named, “Breaking The Cycle Empowerment Conference!”

Breaking The Cycle Empowerment Conference

Atlanta is an “eventful” city, and we mean that in the most sincerest terms. Indeed, there is an event for everything you can think of; business launches, re-branding, fashion shows, and even potato chip bag reveals (we are not joking). Seldom, however, at any of these events will you find food for your soul, medicine for your spirit, and genuine empowerment to fuel you through life. Thankfully, local Atlanta fashion stylist and philanthropist, Rishawn Felton, managed to give us just that with his panel discussion at the aptly named, “Breaking The Cycle Empowerment Conference!”

Rishawn Felton & Brandi Williams

The event took place at local Atlanta hot spot, The Buckhead Loft, where Rishawn, alongside the host and singer, Brandi Williams (Blaque), Dr. Shana Lewis (author/counselor), Tyler Burton (writer/journalist), Latonya Sampson McDonald (life coach/associate marriage family therapist), Byron Jamal (author and founder of PathFinder guide), Rodney Wash (television personality), Antwain Donte (motivational speaker/artistic director), and Christoper McKinley (motivational speaker/beauty enthusiast) tackled topics and issues surrounding spirituality, mental health, and racism. Noted attendees included Julian Lark (Celebrity stylist/Editor-in-chief of Kontrol Magazine), Michael “Hey Mikey” Fanning (media personality/radio host), Maurice Ravennah (philanthropist/CEO of Phoenix International, Inc. & Griffin Global Bank), Lipstick (television personality), Tramel Harris (television personality), and Martel Star (Web Star and artist).

Breaking The Cycle Empowerment Conference

The panel each had their own feelings about each topic, but all came with hope and belief that their past experiences and various fields of expertise would be able to help someone. The progress of the event was straightforward and to the point allowing ten minute intervals for a break between each topic of discussion, giving the guests chances to mingle and network. Each topic was one that hit close to home for so many. Spirituality and mental health in particular were quite jarring as panelists and guests opened up about the importance of a relationship with God and that all paths of belief were a way to connecting to Him personally. As for mental health, many disclosed how they were delivered from suicidal ideation, and challenged the stigma of seeking therapy in the African-American community. Lastly, as it pertained to racism the panelists discussed how hundreds of years of systematic racism and current oppression can and do have an effect on the spirit and psyche.

Yes, the topics at hand were heavy; but they were all the more timely. In the age of social media, rates of depression and suicide are at an all time high, people place themselves on unrealistic and unhealthy timetables, and people are mistaking self-confidence with self-consciousness. This conference was needed. Rishawn plans to do this annually, but is willing to make them more frequent as the need arrives. All we have to say is kudos, my friend.

Ash Ketchum and his Alola Region Pokemon Team

Ash Ketchum has to be the epitome of what it means to chase a dream. This kid, who’s been ten years old for decades now, has never given up on wanting to become the best pokemon trainer in the world. We have watched him battle goofy villains (Team Rocket), poachers, otherworldly beings, and even time travel all in the name of learning about the magical and powerful creatures inhabiting his world. We are surprised the folks over at Nintendo decided it was finally time to allow him to become a champion. Perhaps, they thought it would end the anime since he would theoretically have accomplished his goal. However, that is not the case, as he is allegedly headed (with Pikachu, of course) to the fabled Galar region (based off the United Kingdom). There, he’s expected to meet and catch new pokemon, make new friends, and try to win their league as well.

Whether you are still a pokemon fan or not, this is a momentous event in television history and should let you briefly flashback to your childhood. At the very least you should take away the notion of never giving up. You can fail a 1,000 times, but that one big win can change your life for the better and it will all be worth it. Congrats Ash!
