So where do I start? Why not at the beginning? My name is Cynthia Bailey, and I am one of the new housewives on THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA. I grew up in Tuscumbia, Alabama and moved to New York City right after high school. I have travelled all over the world for past 20 years as a fashion model; imagine exotic shoots in the safaris of Africa and beautiful Bondi Beach "down under" in Australia. I feel incredibly blessed to have left my very humble beginnings at 18 years old in Alabama to pursue my dreams as a fashion model. I was so afraid the first time I boarded a flight to New York. There I was at LaGuardia Airport with nothing but a suitcase full all the "wrong" clothes, $100, my bible, my sparkling homecoming queen crown, and a strong belief in destiny. I knew after that day my life would never be the same, and believe me it wasn't...
As I embark on my newest journey as a "housewife" and go from the runways of Paris to your living room sofa, I find myself once again feeling like that 18 year-old girl from Alabama, now with a suitcase full of all the "right" clothes, more than a $100, my same bible, no homecoming crown, and again my strong belief in destiny. Someone once told me, "You have your plan, and God has his." Well, I am living testimony of that, because I never saw this coming.
Okay, Episode 2 here we go. I felt like my introduction to the show was well presented, but I'm sure you were thinking the same thing I was thinking: "Where is the DRAMA?" Well, let me ask you this. If you were reading a book, and all the juicy stuff happened in the first chapter, would you finish the book? Probably not, I know I wouldn't. So be patient grasshopper, this is one book you won't be able to put down. After all, mystery is everything.
I love the red print kaftan that you were wearing at the evening episode. Who is the designer? where did you get this?
You looked so gorgeous in this episode! I can't wait to see more of you in the upcoming episodes! You are already my favorite housewife - I wonder if you are going to get married or not?? I can't wait to find out...
First I want to say welcome to the show......So far I can see that you have class..I will watch next week to see more of you.
So glad you've been added to the show! You seem to bring class and elegance without having to say "I'm classy" or "Elite" - people who really are like that don't have to say it. I was thinking you were going to come across as pretentious but given your experiences it seems like you're geniunely happy with your life and don't have to prove anything to anyone which is refreshing. Hope things work out with your fiance, we'll have to wait and see. Good luck!
I remember seeing your modeling pics in Essence and other magazines. Welcome to the Atlanta Housewives! I also liked your debut. You and your guy are a beautiful looking couple. Whatever you decide in your relationship, all my best to you. And your daughter is adorable too. You seem to carry yourself very well, and seem like a good friend to Nene. Time will tell with everything, but so far, I like what I see. This looks like an interesting season, indeed. Looking forward to next week!
Loved seeing u on the show last night!! u truely add that touch of class and sophistication. now all my friends have said that they will be watching the show . GREAT JOB CYNTHIA!!
Why are you so hung up on Phaedra's career? You stated that you have had a blast living your life, right? Why are you so petty towards her? I think both of you are great additions to the show, lighten up on the sistah. Dang.
Oh Cythnia thank you for seeing Nene needed and wanted to talk to Dwight and needed an outlet. They are friends again and brought me to tears to see that happen. Oh I love your photo shoot. You are so pretty. Go on and marry the man, he is cute.
THANK YOU.....for introducing yourself. And thank you for no bashing everyone too hard over the head with this (your second) blog. Welcome to the RHOA and I look forward to learning more about you and the "drama" you may bring to the such. Much respect.......
OHHH Mis thing girl you came on flawlessly honey! girl you bring such a ease and grace honey thats it girl you got that classy look like a black Princess grace are a audrey Helburn hone in breakfast at Tiffanies you are so beautiful I have watched your parts over and over on this site!! You are just breathtaking and this weeks blog proves to all the kids that you are whats happening!! Miss Thing I am so happy to say I am team Cynthia all the way Baby!! can't wait to see more honey untillllll next week Miss Cynthia Bailey I live!!!!!!!!!!
Welcome to the show. You are a good addition and I look forward to getting to know you better. I like your strong Christian faith. I believe in destiny too.
Wow...I really enjoyed seeing your beautiful face grace the TV screen! Me and my kids are your biggest cheerleader! You carried yourself with grace and repect for others on the first episode. I love me some (keepin it real, telling it like it IS NeNe)! My heart goes out to her dealing with her son and his issues. I must say that sometimes it's most difficult for parents to see their kids go astray and make mistakes that will hurt them in the long run...however TOUGH love is still love! Seeing NeNe in a funerable state shows a different side of her that I can appreciate as well. I can't wait to see how things go for the rest of the show. Im loving it so far.
Cynthia, just goes to show you never judge a book by its cover. I was all set to not like the new super model but I find that I do. There is no doubt your beautiful. I look forward to getting to know you and watching you deal with the other girls.
Nice to have you on the show. I was surprised to find you describe yourself as a "supermodel". Typically when "Supermodels" are named, Cynthia Bailey's name doesn't come out. I have heard of you as a model, but never as a supermodel. Obviously you think very highly of yourself, to proclaim yourself as a "supermodel". Anyways, its good to see you are still in demand at your age as a model.
fabulous debut -- You are showing them some style down there in the ATL...Keep on keepin it real (I loved your first blog honey!)
you are definitely a breathe of fresh air! you are the "sonja morgan" for this episode of housewives; very ladylike; friendly, and just down to earth! loving your introduction to the show and your whole aura!
There is something to you and I see subtle hints of a force to be reckoned with and I like it. You are a beautiful, exotic woman and your fiance is lucky, yet I am sure you can say the same about him. I really like the fact that you don't mind helping out your fiance and that was awesome to watch. Much more success to you guys and see ya next week!
Finally--a wonderful role model for young adults watching housewives of Atlanta. (oops, forgot about Kandi--she's great too). I think you're well grounded, and your boyfriend seems awesome too!!! Best of luck to both of you. And please--I hope you don't start acting like the other housewives and get in a person's face, yelling and talking ghetto!!!!
Cynthia what can I say but wow! You are such a beautiful woman inside and out and a perfect addition to the show.
Cynthia, You are beautiful and classy, stay that way. Do not get sucked in by the other ladies bad behaviors. If you need to be close to someone from the cast please let it be Kandi. Kandi is genuine.
A breath of fresh air!!! welcome cynthia bailey!!! exactly what the show needed! cant wait to see how you progress in the season! xo Joy richards
It's such a breath of fresh air to see a woman of intelligence, style and class grace the Atlanta Housewives, while still remaining down to earth....not too mention your timeless beauty. But don't get it twisted, it is evident that you are not one to play with. I'm excited to see what happens with you and Peter...you deserve all the happiness God has in store for you. Love ya MIss B.
Ok, finally someone I can relate to on RHOA!! You are a class act my dear and a true pleasure to watch. I adore foie gras, Paris, and you!! I can't wait to "watch what happens" with you this season. THANK YOU FOR JOINING!! :)
Glad Bravo introduced you to us. I may have seen your face ( I think your gorgeous) around but never paid too much attention. You seem like the voice of reason for NeNe since everyone else except D'wight, listens to her and I think honestly cares about her. Anyway, I look forward to your part on the show.
I think you are beautiful woman and great addition to the show. I wish you nothing but the best for you and your daughter. Stay positive. :o)
Thank you Bravo for adding 2 new additions that exceed the petty, slang talking wives of the past. You finally have women on that Atlanta can be proud of. I hope that Cynthia and Phaedra will remain classy and not get into the petty arguments. I like Nene, she is entertaining and this week's episode did show a softer side. But please, don't allow this season to be about insignificant, petty arguments. You all have wonderful qualities. Love you Cynthia, you have a quiet elegance about you.
So proud of you! I was at DHS when you were homecoming queen :-) and I remember you and your sister being two of the nicest people at school. I'll be watching every episode!!
Cynthia is a classy woman who relishes in her own delight. She is not focus on Phaedra. Cynthia is a great asset to the show because she brings ambiance and style without the dramatic sounds of low standards. I really like her because she is real, accomplished, happy, and dedicated. Now to put her in the same rank as Phaedra is wrong. I don't know if I have seen Phaedra without makeup. Cynthia is a person who my children can view because she lacks drama in her life. Thank you for creating this divine balance.
The preview party was great! Representing Salon Penna'e, Stylist Penna'e Lewis and I, her assistant Sade', really enjoyed ourselves! The food and wine was great and the atmosphere was a nice touch. You looked beautiful, as always, and we enjoy being in your company. We wish you best of luck with the upcoming season of RHOA!!! See ya soon!!!
I remember you! Your the pretty model I've seen on everything! You truly are a class act. Supermodel ....u betta work!
Peace and Blessings
You are a housewife of Atlanta that makes Atlanta proud. The Atlanta I know has not been represented thus far. You have southern class, southern grace, and southern values. Glad to see Bravo has found a real representative for the Georgia capitol.
