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?
"Cynthia you are a beautiful person inside and out, and class is one of your best qualities. "Stay true to yourself, because if you don't you will live a lie. Mrs. Thomas you were a breath of fresh and I learned so much from you during this season of the Atlanta Housewives. You have a good heart Cynthia "and continue to wear it on your sleeve, because those who my try to take your kindness for weakness are wrong for their actions "meaning that they are in need of change"
Stay as you are!!!!
CYNTHIA, I REALLY LIKE YOU. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT BALANCE. YOU AREN'T MESSSY LIKE SOME OF THE OTHER WOMAN, BUT YOU WILL STAND UP FOR YOURSELF.
I am so proud of you!!! You are one of my dearest friends and to those who only know you on the show......She is a strong black woman, wonderful mother, and true friend 365. Please know the flight att at Continental/United Airlines are all tuning in to see you!!
Please understand that NeeNee is in a very awful place right now. She is not fake or "toned down" as you said. NeeNee is still NeeNee. I still see the same woman that I have seen every season. Do you understand that NeeNee is now in a place where she is probably always thinking about her marriage and her son.
I could not wait for the first episode and I can't wait to see more of Cynthia and Kandi, they are my favorite. I have watched the previous seasons and I cannot understand what is happening between the different relationships. I always thought Nene was "real" but see that is not so true cause I cannot understand how she toned down so much. She is crying every other scene with Dwight and Kim then her son where is the real Nene is what I am asking? With all that said, I look forward to watching true women Cynthia and Kandi and Sheree (possibly spelling her name wrong). I love you and can't wait to see more of you.
Miss Cynthia, you will be the only reason I watch Atlanta, and you are very pretty, and Khandi should stay far, far away from you...
Cynthia you are a strong black woman, I am so excited to hear all of the accomplishments you have. You are such a inspiration to our daughters.
Cynthia you are in the spotlight once again and it is wonderful to see you on the tube weekly! I have enjoyed following your career and wish you much success. You make your hometown folks proud! We love you and may heaven continue to smile upon you! God is good and it shows!
Cynthia You look beautiful as usual and I totally love telling ANONE that i know that we have known each other forever! Love You much!! Blessings!
Cynthia you're a natural.. My daughter has wanted to be a model & because of all the fake-ness & misery, I didn't want her to go into that career. You show another side, A happier, smart, intelligent side. Thanks for representing truth to self & showing family values... That's an awesome example of the way we all should be.... Wishing you the best!! ( Marriage, Motherhood, & Career)... May you continue to have favor in your life... Felicia R.
So you are a southern bell also..I'm so happy you don't act like Phaedra with the southern bell crap..
Cynthia is so beautiful, refined, sophisticated, and articulate...
Cynthia should start a "finishing" school. She could make a fortune turning "ghetto" into "southern belles". Just a predication ~ I'd be glad to run the numbers for the start-up costs, and first six month expenses.
I can think of a few that should join her school ASAP...
Cynthia.. Thanks for bringing a sense of class back to the show. The last time I've seen this much class from one of the Housewives of Atlanta Season 1 when Deshawn was on the show. Hope I'll be able to watch more episodes. Oh one more thing you are the first person besides my family that I have heard you come from Tuscumbia, Alabama. Wow, small world .. Congrats!!!
