The Real Housewives of Atlanta's new face, Cynthia Bailey, admits that at first she couldn't imagine producers selecting her to join the cast.
"Initially I didn't really think I would make good reality TV because I'm not super confrontational," the beauty spills to Celebuzz. "I'm not a big drama queen, though I have drama. I actually managed to surprise my own self. I got right in there and held my own pretty well."
Now that she's been officially initiated into the Real Housewives sorority, Cynthia wants to become besties with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Lisa Vanderpump... even though she blanked on recalling Lisa's name. It happens.
"I just started watching the Beverly Hills girls and they are really rich!" she says. "We don't own basketball teams. We're excited to get Birkin bags. They have them in every color. If I could hang out with anyone, it would be the one with the really cute dog. They're so over the top and fabulous!"
This model mommy is also spreading the love for Bethenny Frankel. "I watch New York because I used to live [there]. I love Bethenny. I think she's funny. She just reminds me of New York."
Sorry, Broadway, your time as the quintessential New York marker is up.
I have been a cynthia bailey fan for quite sometime. I also had the pleasure of meeting her in Paris years ago and it was a pleasure, she's shy. I think we can keep her and dump the fakedra. I think it's about time we brought some facimile of class and decorum to the show. Yeah we all have drama but this woman is one of the great icons of fashion, not a label whore like the rest. Good luck on the show. I think she'll be the Bethanny of Atlanta
I love Lisa and Cynthia they should be friends.Also Bethany i really like her shes funny and her daughter is so cute.I love all three of them.They are so kind and nice and i would love to meet them all.
I can't really speak for Cynthia because I haven't seen too much of Atlanta, but she does seem classy. However, Lisa VdP is one of the most beautiful, classy, intellgent, demure, sophisticated women on reality television. This is a true lady in every sense. She possesses unparalleled dignity, class, and glamour, and most importantly by far: she loves her family. I get the sense that Lida would trade every modicum of financial success she has acquired for her family. I do not sense that from people like Sheree from Atl or Camille from Bev Hills. Lisa is Bravos arbiter of grace and civility. She reminds me of my own mom.
