“Kenya had a meltdown,” an insider revealed of the 48-year-old reality star. “She is really struggling being basically a single mom" since her husband, Marc Daly, works so much in New York City.

She returned to the Bravo hit for Season 12 with promises to share her new life with fans on the small screen, but the insider said the reality star's had a tough time while shooting.

“She said on camera how much she was having to deal with, and the pressure was really intense,” the source said. “She was in crisis mode and really broke down while filming. It was intense.”

The insider explained the root of Kenya's problems had to do with dealing with her baby daughter Brooklyn alone.

“Kenya feels like she is doing all of the parenting in the relationship, and it is overwhelming for her,” the source told

“Marc has only been to Atlanta a few times to film with Kenya and the baby, but he doesn’t live there and he isn’t there full-time,” the source continued. “Kenya is in a long distance relationship and that is hard as a mom, as a wife, and as someone on a reality show."

Still, while she struggles to cope, Kenya’s unconventional marriage is getting plenty of airtime on RHOA.
