Cynthia Bailey

Cynthia shares her story about coming to New York for the first time.

on Dec 13, 20110

"In New York concrete jungle where dreams are made, oh

There's nothing you can't do, now you're in New York

These streets will make you feel brand new

Big lights will inspire you, lets hear it for New York, New York, New York!"

Jay-Z and Alicia Keys

I moved from Huntsville, Alabama to New York City right out of high school. I was alone, scared, and had very little money. It was my first time going to the Big Apple, and also my first time on an airplane! I was very nervous, but I knew I had to be brave, because my mother was crazy with worry and would have changed her mind if I showed any signs of fear. I knew the moment that I boarded the plane and they closed the door there was no turning back. I was 18 years old, and there was nothing that I had learned in my “small town” upbringing that could have ever prepared me for my journey. As I sat in my seat, I suddenly started to panic, but I was embarrassed to cry in front of the passenger seated next to me. So, instead of crying, I prayed. I prayed for courage, strength, protection, and prosperity. I prayed so long that I fell asleep. When the flight attendant woke me up, I heard the words, “Welcome to LaGuardia Airport.” I remember thinking to myself that I had to win, because I had not come all this way to lose. I had already had my first victory by just getting on the plane. Looking back, I think that was the hardest part. I remember that day like it was yesterday, because that was the day my whole life changed.

Yes Mrs.Cynthia I really like you . But I think you need to pick your friend a lot better. Because your friend NeNe is not your friend cause when you are not around she is talking about you to people. But want I really want to said is that you need to keep your eye on Miss thing cause she is after your husband for real. So please keep your eye on Ms NeNe and Peter okay .

In watching this season it seems that Cynthia is just in her on world of denial! It would be good to see her happy without expectations of what her husband could be. He is a self involved arrogant ass that wants everyone to believe he is bigger than he is and he needs Cynthia to prop him up and it bothers him that everyone knows she is the famous one and he is the hanger on.

Cynthia, I really like you on the show, to me you are the only one with real class. However, you are so trusting and even naive. Having lived in NYC. I would think that you learned a lot more about men.I sure would like to know how you stumbled upon Peter the Pimp and hustler. You two are definitely unvenly yoked. Peter is arrogant, disrespectful, jealous,.and a wanna be. What kind of a job does he have ,or has he had to be trying to be an entrepuneur. I it seems like he brought nothing to the marriage. What sold you on this guy? your sister and your mom are feeling the same thing way I feel.He is a big fat zero. If he diskikes you mom and your sister,how do you think he feels about you child. I see a lot of red flags, and so do the others. He always seems to have achip on his shoulder,just waiting for it to be knocked off.Your friend Ne Ne,beware,she doesn't value you,she is a backstabber, just waiting for the chance to stick it to you; just be aware she likes your man, and he is digging her. you have been warned by several of your friends, please listen.

Hey Cynthia! I just cannot express enough how enjoyable you are on the show. Truth is so much more compelling than fiction. When you were having financial problems you did not cover that up, you were brave enough and real enough to live it in front of all of us who can so relate girl. When you are happy your smile and laughter come across so genuinely. And when you are sad and stressed we can clearly see that too. Unlike some of your castemates, you do not "put on for your city" (i.e., front!) but just keep things real. When you have made millions especially through the fruits of your own labor, there is no need to pretend and nothing to prove. When you are beautiful on the inside, you're beautiful on the outside and do not need the extra frills or obsessive workouts to prove anything either. I could go on and on but really, don't take the TV thing too seriously and certainly don't let it ruin what is real in your life, which are your relationships. Anyway, love you girl. Much success with the Bailey Agency.

I agree with Haukku, watch Peter and Nene. I was taken back when at Khandi's party after the stripper performed, didn't Nene turn to Peter asking "should we go" and he seemed to have responded to her. She didn't come with Peter and Cynthia, why would she need to ask Peter ask if they came together. Plus, remember before Bar One opened, she came by and kept complimenting Peter on his orange shirt. Once was enough, but she had to repeat the compliment again before leaving.

I was proud of you last night. You articulated your emotions and feelings to Peter without faltering. Even when he started talking and going off in a different tangent. You showed that you are a strong woman and you are not a push over.

Peter acts like such a tool! Girl I don't know how you stand it! He is seething with jealousy, and his base anger is always just below the surface whenever he is with you. Totally reminds me of NeNe. Thats what those two have in common.

Cynthia, you remind me of myself.You are a soft hearted,soft tone women that apprciates all of life surroundings. You want what most of us want out of life. a great career, a loving family, trust worthy friends and a husband that supports you. I see nothing wrong with that. I have three comments for you. The first is to never turn your back on your sister Mel. Although she and your mother over stepped their bounds, I am sure they have realized what a mistake that was. Secondly, You seek what makes you happy, although a respectfully,loving, supporting relationship is wonderful. Don't settle for the bull from Peter unless you are happy with Peter. Peter is playing games in front of the camera at your expense. And lastly, keep Nene at a distance. Nene don't care anything about you until she needs someone in her corner. She lives off of other people's pain.

Hi Cynthia, I really love the way you handle yourself with sophistication and class. You're a very beautiful and classy lady. I must say that I don't believe Peter really appreciates you and your career. He seems to be all about what he has going on and wants your support, but when it comes down to him supporting you little is put into it. My grandmother told me that your true soul mate is not the person you can live with but the one you can't live without. I'm not saying you should leave him as I believe in working out your marriage if possible. I think he's jealous of your past and present career and success. Some men don't know how to handle it when the woman is the bread winner of the family. I know we all have our flaws and things we need to work on. I cried watching the last episode of you calling for him and he didn't show up. You was there for him when he had the opening of uptown which was a good thing because NeNe was running late. How dare he leave you like that on your big night with not one ounce of respect for you to say that he was leaving. I finally found my true soul mate after years of bad relationships and 3 kids. We had twin boys 5 years ago and have been married for 6 years. He treats them as his own and someone looking from the outside or inside would not know the first 3 are not even his biological kids. Peter seems to have a horrible attitude about the way he is and that he feels that he does not need to change some things. Marriage and relationships are all about change. The biggest misconception people have going into marriage/relationships is that you're not going to change or that if you change it's for the worst. You're due more respect than that and it seems that he's okay to write you off if you can't get over the way he is. Mel is your sister and sometimes they can become more involved if we allow them to. I understand her concern as I had the same concern for my sister when she married her now ex. She had to come to terms with it herself and see the person we saw, which took a few years but it finally happened. We're on the outside looking in, so I'm sure your sister knows and sees more than us when the cameras are not rolling. Remember keep your head up and demand respect from your husband, because I know you give it.

Cynthia, please, please pay more attention to Nene and Peter and how they respond to each other. At the opening of Bar One, Peter kissed Nene on the cheek twice and hugged her like she WAS his wife. Did you even notice how close they were standing next to each other? I've never seen him greet you with that much excitement. And, when held up the blue dress at the consignment shop, Nene said, "I don't think Peter would like you in something like that". How would she know what Peter likes? Cynthia, you share WAY TO MUCH about your personal life with Peter. Your family knows to much and so does Nene. Nene has been flirting with Peter ever since you came on the show. Just ask Mallory what she thinks and I bet she'll agree.

Older sisters overstep - they feel they have the right long after we younger sisters are grown women. I'm Proud of you for putting Mel in her place. If yours turns out to be a marriage that won't work - that is 100% your call.

Peter, he does raise some red flags though, if he is unable to bend the slightest towards your basic request of improving communication then I am not sure how long that type of relationship works . It is again your call. One thing is for sure you are smart enough to figure it all out and beautiful enough inside and out to be appreciated more than criticized. Your sister sees you in a sinking boat but rather than stand there with a life vest for you If / when you jump out... she is throwing buckets of water in the boat to ensure it's demise. Good intentions or not she needs to learn boundaries.

If there is a next time, marry a partner who is there beside you enjoying what life teaches both of you. or go to boot camp ... but do not marry a drill Sargent who's goal is to break you down then build you up... (Build up never seems to come ) i fail to see the enjoyment in that.

Thank you for sharing your personal Journey with us.

Hello...I just thought that I'd leave a little something on your blog ...I really love the show i watch it all the time...I am one of the biggest fans of the Atlanta Housewife's .... And i really love watching the show.. I really like all the girls but the one that i really have a soft spot for is you Cynthia.. On most of the episodes i have watched you and your sister fight and argue about how she feels about your marriage with Peter... ((Just my opinion...)) So please do not take it offensives because i really don't mean to offend you in any way or form ... And I know that your are really close to your sister and family..as I have herd in the show...But I think that what your family did the day of your wedding was wrong... And i kind of understand were your husband is coming from it is really hurtful for anybody to do that to anyone on there wedding day...And even though you and peter may have your ups and downs i think that its nobody's place to step in and do or say anything hurtful about your marriage... And all of ((this and that))...that your sister has to say about you and your husband... I think that she should just step out of you guys marriage and mind her own business and allow you to live your life... And if there is mistakes being made to let you live and learn form your mistakes... I just think that she needs to let it go already your are a grown women and you make your own choices... And i just hope that both you and Peter live happily and enjoy one and another...! wishing you both nothing but the best and a wonderful future together...love your # 1 fan of the show... :) :) !!!!

Hi Cynthia, im watching the "Jewels be dangled" episode.... I feel so bad for your sister. She is soo right and you got so defensive; not her. You decided to play tic for tac and put her business out there... wow! Good thing your bro in law Chris was there to calm you two down. I would have reacted the same. She is your sister and she is only looking out for you as well as Chris. If your family is very close as Chris mentioned and has been like that before Peter, it should stay the same after Peter. He treats you way too bad to put him before a caring family like yours. Take it from me (someone with not much family at all). I wish I did have what you do grl.

Peter is not a good fit for you. He is too arrogant and he says things that hurt your feelings. he acts as if you are disposable. He needs to treasure you, not because you are beautiful, but because you are his wife.

Hi Cynthia,

Honestly your husband is an evil and selfish not right man. I can't stand watching the show and he is there always causing you to be upset. I do not like it. He talks to you as his wife wrong, he talks to your family wrong (including making your sister cry... smh) and he even talks to your friends and their husbands like he is crazY!!!! (i.e. Pheadra's husband) just wow to that episode. I know God hates divorce. I am married myself but if I had a husband like that.... I would be on to the next for sure...smh again

Dear Cynthia, Happy New Year to you. Wow its been 2 weeks and u ladies have not been on tv? I guess the holidays? Cynthia no one can tell u what to do about yo man/husband. Just look at some comments, and listen to some advice. You are a sweetheart, but I believe Peter is jealous of your plans. He dont seem supportive, he is too rough for you. How can he just walk out on your big (OPENING DAY)? U don't seem happy, when u was in NY and was talkikng to Russell simmons and another guy in Ny. u was smiling and was very happy to be in Ny. Your friend in Ny saw in your eyes that u wasnt happy. U suppose to be in your newlywed time. U guys seem like the honeymoon only lasted 1 week. I'm proud of your model agency/ U go Girl!!!! I'm not going to tell u to leave your husband. thats something u have to think about. Just dont stay too long, get out while its less than a year U deserve happiness, please dont get pregnant from Peter. I hope u had a pre-nump before u married him. Dont allow this man to take all the $$$money that u made. I think Nene is a good friend to you. Alot of people are jealous of ya'll relationship. Its a rumor on the internet that Nene use to date Peter? I hope thats not true???? If it was true, one of them should have spoke up before u got married??? You are a postive sista on the show, forget the HATERS. Sheree is jealous of u? She dont have anything going on for herself. Just living off her ex- old money??

I agree whole heartedly with the others you do not have a friend in NeNe. She is and will never be a friend to anyone. Nene snap on Kim for no apparent reason. She speaks bad about everyone. Her only claim to fame is the Apprentice. She is loud and rude every chance she gets. Then she calls Phaedra fake no I do not think so she is the fake one.

Cynthia, I've been married for 17 years and I can't imagine having a husband who does not trust me as a true team player. Peter said that he didn't want to come for you for help because he knew that you would tell you sister and your mom. Further more it appears that you are making excuses for how your mom and sister behaved at your wedding, saying that it came from a good place. Are you crazy? Then you took your sister to your husband's bar to talk about the wedding and when he said that he didn't know she was calling him, you threw him under the bus by saying, "yes you did, you told me that you weren't taking her calls." WOW. You need to check your sister, and stop telling them all of your business. You're going to end up alone and for some reason I think that they'll be cool with that.

Cynthia, Could you please wear that blue lace dress that you bought at the vintage store ? I didn't like that dress but I'am sure you can make it into something special, a lesson on how to rock a dress. Wish you and Peter a wonderful 2012.

Cynthia, I'm sure you know by now that with a husband like Peter, you don't need any enemies. He is ugly inside AND out. He is a mentally abusive, petty, poor excuse for a man. He is jealous of your success and is a flat broke moocher with zero business sense. He does not wish you well and does not deserve your time. Please do not continue to teach your daughter that this is the way a man should treat his wife. Otherwise, in ten years you will be the one hiding the marriage licence to protect your daughter from a worthless loser like Peter. Oh and NeNe does not like you either. Stop being her doormat. She is in the same category as Peter. A jealous, deluded loser, also ugly inside and out. Both of them would love to see you crash and burn to fill up their emptiness.

I think Peter is having a hard time w all of the negative vibes he is getting from the public, your fam. Its too much. But you blow up his spot every week on here and twitter. He needs to show you the same sopport. Maybe as he watches the season, he'll realize how far he's gone to appear uninvolved. I feel for you. i I'm sick of the people calling you weak. You're far from it. I am giggly, a cryer, ect... but I get the job done. That is how God made you - Peachy. a And the commenters do not have the right to rebuild you. God is no slouch and he didn't make you incorrectly. Be you Cynthia. Good luck on all your endeavors.

I truly appreciate you opening your agency in ATL. A lot of young ladies in the surronding areas truly needs to know the business. I wish someone had the same idea back in my times. Yes, people look at my height and say you should have been a modee. NOT.....It wasn't for me, but I'm not knocking the ones that wishes to do it. Stay focus as I know that you will.steph

Cynthia, You have obviously been blessed with beauty but unfortunately it was at the expense of not being too smart. You need to rid yourself of two very angry people in your life: Peter and NeNe. Once they are gone you can live your life with some happiness and dignity. And by the way, it seems as if you are afraid of NeNe. Not that i blame you...she is truly frightful!!!!

Cynthia, I have yet to figure out what you saw in Peter that made you want to marry him. You deserve soo much better. It is soo obvious that he is soo wrong for you, and I think that you now realize that you made a mistake. I can tell that you are really not happy and you have been trying to make it seem like everything is O.K., but you know that it is not. You have been with Jason Williams (who wanted to marry you), Leon, Russell Simmons and other guys who I'm sure would have been much better for you, but you chose someone like Peter, which was a big mistake. And your mother and sister knew it from the beginning and wanted to stop the train wreck before it took off because they have your best interest at heart. You must also open up your eyes to NeNe because I can tell that she is not your true friend. She really doesn't care that much about you, but she deals with you because you continue to put yourself off on her. She has a crush on Peter, and if he would ever make a pass at her, she would be on him like white on rice. You are a beautiful, classy person, but you have a problem picking the right people to be in your life. I hope that things will eventually turn around for you that will be for you and your child's best interest.

You're stunning, pleasant, unique and overall a respectable figure for all women. I love the fact that you're your own person & have not listened to all the negativity with the other women against Nene. You're a real friend and it only takes an intelligent person to recognize when one is being hated on & not be a part of that but instead draw your own conclusions by getting to know the person for yourself..Wish you all the happiness in the world & blessings that will have you rise soooo gigantically amongst your peers because you're real. Happy new year Cynthia!!!!! P.s, from an African princess with so much intelligent, don't divorce Peter but instead show him how to be a better husband to you & be supportive of you're dreams also....U don't wana be one of many that is quick to run because of a few hurdles..I say jump over them graciously..LOVE YOU CYNTHIA & TAKE CARE!!!!!

I think Peter is using you for your money. He should have been there for you at the opening and he left as soon as he could. Doesn't say much for him. Move on. Your family was right.

You are so beautiful! I remember you as a top model in the magazines, I was so proud of you and all the black models, doing their thing. Now I see you still beautiful, but very unhappy looking. Leon is fine girl!. Honestly I know they say stick with your man and marriage through thick and thin. Let's keep it real! Peter is a whack and he is a 100% user of you! lose the bum while you can! your sister and mother are so right! what kind of man says "Screw" your mother and sister and still wants to be with you? ...I have been in the same thing of men using me for my money, and trust me, mama knows a no good man when she see's one! Peter is not good for such a beautiful and classy woman as yourself! God bless you sista, happy new year and keep up the good work, girl!

How do you go from Leon to Peter? You are a mother and your daughter is watching you and Peter. I know you love him. Does he love you? He seems distracted-mean-selfish-rude- bully-fake. I would never allow a man to talk about my mother or sister like that. Hell-no!! You seem to shrink around him stick you head in the sand. You are stronger than that and stop acting like a damn victim. He left you hanging at your opening and I pray that was scripted. Your daughter is watching and hearing about all of this. Stop it!! Seek counseling for yourself only and find out why-why you are ok being mistreated. I'm praying for you. Girl- you are fab and you still look 21.

I think that it is an extreme disadvantage that your new marriage is so publically displayed. I also think that you involve your family too much in your marriage. Everything that happens in your marriage is NOT their business. YOu must understand that your family loves you. Everytime you tell them something bad about your husband it gives them a reason to hate them, because he is hurting you. Some things are better left unsaid, some things are better not known. Marriage is hard. The first year is usually bliss, but I think you two don't have that because everyone is in your business, including me and I don't even know you. I think that you should seriously consider removing your marriage from the main screen. I can't say where Peter heart is, but it seems that he loves you. What I have noticed since being married that love doesn't change someones messed up personality traits. You have to decide if you are willing to live with those personality traits your husband has that you might dislike. I understand why you gave your husband that money, but I will say this: in anything not just money, don't give more than what you get. When you do, it leaves room for bad feelings that can fester and rot a relationship. The world did not need to know you gave him that money, that is your personal business. Get your marriage off the big screen.

Cynitha We had a discusssion about ur new husband Peter, it wasn't good. He made me curse I knew a man such as he and he's gone! He is inconsiderate of your feelings and your worth. When he didn't support u and left I was out done a sure sign of JEALOUSLY!! I am only a viewer but trust me it is hard for a man to except a woman with her own stuff instead of adding and helping to build it up, he will tear away the very fabric of you and your ideas. Following our heart gets us in to places where it is hard to get out! If this is for tv with him acting like this okay but if it is real you dont need a TYRANT but a husband or a good FRIEND (LEON) someone who cares about the BAILEY FAMILY!!

Hello Cynthia... Ya know i came on here to tell ya how much i disapprove of you being with Peter.. but..it seems everyone has already.. said enough... i recognize alot of myself in you... and i know how hard it is sometimes to be assertive and to truly love yourself... but it really makes me a little.. sick... to see you with that man... you might be beautiful... but.. it doesnt seem like your very Bright... you have a saying on your wall in your new business being confident makes you beautiful.... but... seems your lacking a whole lot of confidence.... cause.. if you had some.. you wouldnt be with that bucket Peter... The woman you portray to be on that show.. would not even.. look twice at a man like that... eeeewww... yuk...

You should get some counseling without Peter and so should your sister too. I get the feeling that you are looking for mothering and fathering. When you get overwhelmed, you call your sister to back you up. However, when it feels better you want her to butt out. I used to be in the position that your sister is in and quite frankly, she should leave you to fend for yourself, but she is your enabler and you are co-dependant. That independent women routine is an act. No one likes to be pulled back and forth emotionally when they see their loved one in pain. You did what most people do who are like you, turn on the people that they have run to constantly for emotional support. If I were your sister, I would have let you fall on your face AGAIN. Instead, you turned around and put her business out there. Now she is in a position to defend herself against rumors. It's like being in high school. One minute no one should speak to the person you are angry with and then when things get better, you get mad at them if they don't want to be bothered with the person. Let's all be friends again, I'M happy now. No, you are self centered. Your mother probably doesn't want to hear it, so you drain the life out of your sister. Leave her alone and work on your marriage and yourself. If you are not careful, you are going to lose your family and your husband. Stop being a self centered child. We all know if he breaks your heart, you will be running to her again. Please leave your sister out of it. She doesn't deserve to be miserable because of your foolish choices.If you love Peter stay, if not get out of it and let him find someone else. I also thing it is totally childish of you to say that you loaned your husband money. If you can't share everything, then you should NOT be any man's wife. Get a sugar daddy instead. Maybe Russell is still interested. It is not ALL ABOUT YOU. Don't let people make you think it is or you may end up ALONE. When you grow old and can no longer walk down the runway, where will your NY so called friends be. They will probably be telling you how fab you used to be while they are cheering on a new girl. The greatest gift on this earth is to be loved than to be temporarily worshipped, NOT because of the way you look or what you have, but because you offer someone things that money nor fame can buy. You need to grow up. The act is getting tired. I am starting to see why Peter is so hard on you. You are SPOILED!!!

Well Cynthia, I'm sure you have had enough of people putting down your husband. I don't want to hurt you. None of us know you or Peter we only see what the show want us to see but when the camera lights go off you two are still married. What ever you seen in Peter from day one that made you say this is the one. Continue to keep that in the relationship. I've been married for almost 30 years I have had people wonder how and why I married my husband... Hell I wondered too !!! But I know my man actually he is older than me by 3 years he has taught me a lot through the years and I know I have molded him( but not by force) into the man he is today as well. When people get married they already have issues that you find out down the line. What you have to do is not try to change him ( by force).. It is what it is but the both of you should remember that you are now ONE, be compassionate with each others feeling. If you or he feel that you have hurt one another don't put it on camera that's all people need to hear to give negative feedback. Cynthia I'm telling you from experience as a married woman don't give up on Peter and Peter don't throw in the towel.I think you are a better man than that. Pray, Go to church for comfort and knowledge. You two got something that is real and Cynthia I see you love hard, hang in there you two I believe in you....

I know why you cry, Cynthia. It's because you don't particularly like Atlanta, you miss NY, you know you made a mistake marrying Peter, you feel trapped, and you are missing your real friends that you have met over the years in the business. Now, put your big girl drawers on. It's time to make some changes. Remember that you have REAL friends. Start by calling them for advice and help in making changes for 2012. Don't forget to talk to G-d. You have a daughter to think about and she needs to see a strong mommy. Be blessed.

ANother "real" said it all.... Get rid of Peter. remember that your mom and sister have been with you and have supported you your whole life....they actually love you. Peter is out for Peter. he is a loser, user and would leave youhigh and dry if you did not help him anymore. You married so far beneath you, it saddens me because youa re truly a beautiful strong woman inside and out... and yes, mom and sis saw the red flags ...

Cynthia, remember last season when you did the whole friendship contract thing that you said you only meant as a harmless joke between you and NeNe (who you thought was your friend), and she took it and showed it to Kim and totally dogged you out? Then at the Fernbank when you went with NeNe and took a look at the place and she said you were "like a child" for wanting to have your wedding at that venue? She disses you on national television and you are calling this woman your friend? Wake up girl. AND this season when NeNe came to Bar One the day before the opening to see what Peter needed her to do, in that SINGLE SCENE she told Peter FOUR times how good and fine he looked, he was right there smiling up a breeze. Open your eyes girl.
