Cynthia Bailey, close friend, and co-star of Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore has weighed in on her shock split from her husband, Marc Daly.

"I knew there were some issues. I'm not going to lie about that. She shared a lot with me, but I didn't think it was anything that couldn't be fixed. I just was really rooting for them, especially since they have this new beautiful daughter [Brooklyn] together," Cynthia told Us Weekly.

Despite their split, Cynthia thinks Kenya and Marc can work through their issues and reconcile:

"This is her first marriage. I think she went into it for all the right reasons. She is still very much in love with her husband, and who knows? Maybe they can still work it out in the end," Cynthia said. "I think they both deserve to be happy whether they're together or not, and I'm not the kind of mom or parent that thinks that you have to be with the father of your child to be able to be good parents to your children. I personally don't think that because you have a kid with somebody is the only reason to stay with that person."

The Real Housewives of Atlanta premiered on Sunday, November 3 at 8/7c.
