Cynthia Bailey and sister Malorie on The Real Housewives of Atlanta
Curious how things stand with Cynthia Bailey's family? You aren't the only one. "Malorie recently left for France to go live with her husband, so that gave all of us some breathing room and some time to reflect," the Real Housewives of Atlanta star updates Wetpaint after her sister took a hiatus from being Cynthia's wingwoman at The Bailey Agency.

Cynthia's, um, difference of opinion with Mal about her marriage lead to a serious game of model in the middle. "She is my sister which makes her family by birth. Peter is my husband which makes him family by marriage. Family is family, and I love them both very much. However, family relationships have to have boundaries," Cynthia writes in her Bravo blog.

However, since putting an ocean between her sister and husband, Cynthia continues telling Wetpaint the family is still "working it out. It's a work in progress." And she's just fine with agreeing to disagree with Mal. "My sister and I are close, but we don't agree on everything. We didn't when we were younger, and we don't now that we are grown," the model mama says in her blog. "As Mal's sister, my role is to be there when she needs me & mind my business when she doesn't. I expect the same. We will always be sisters, and will always have each other's backs."
