The Move to Industry Studios
Cynthia explains why she's ultimately happy about the new space for The Bailey Agency.
Welcome back to THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA!
Wow! So much has happened since the last time we talked, so let's jump right in. The Bailey Agency School of Fashion has outgrown its original location, and we have moved to a larger one! I am super excited to introduce the world to Industry Studios, which is the new home to The Bailey Agency School of Fashion, Derek Blanks Photography, and Peter Thomas Entertainment. I love it! Industry Studios is the perfect space to grow into (it's huge) and God willing I look forward to being there for many years.
Yes, you heard me right when I said Peter started renting the building (he did NOT buy it like I said he did, my mistake) 6 months before he told me about it. Initially I was annoyed that he did not consult with me first, but I now understand why he did not. The reason is simple: I would have shut the idea down. I don't like to take risks or jump into things before I fully understand how they can benefit me or my situation. Peter started renting the space with the vision that one day it would be exactly what it is today, Industry Studios. The collaboration of TBA, Derek Blanks Photography, and Peter Thomas Entertainment is definitely a power move for all involved. Business has been booming, and we have only been at Industry for about 5 months. We have already had great talents such as Michelle Williams, Tyrese, Monica, Jaheim, Towanda Braxton, and many more walk through our doors for business! Also, The Cynthia Bailey Model Search and Miss Renaissance Pageant 2013 were huge successes this year. As for everything else that's been going on, you guys will see in the weeks to come. Expect big things from Industry Studios and The Bailey Agency School of Fashion, because they are definitely coming!
Thank you to all the ladies for coming and supporting my event. Your kind words and well wishes mean the world to me. Kenya: I was completely surprised and caught off guard when Kenya showed up at The Bailey Agency when we were moving. Kenya and I are still in the early stages of building a friendship, and we don't really talk on a regular basis. At the time, outside of a few random texts here and there, I had not seen or spoken to her since the reunion. Kenya had no real reason to be upset with me about not reaching out to her regarding her alleged eviction. Kenya is a smart, successful businesswoman, so I did not believe for a second that she would ever do anything to put herself in that kind of situation. Therefore, I chose not to reach out to her when I heard this rumor, because outside of working with Kenya, her personal business/issues are none of my business unless she calls me to discuss them.
FYI: I do not believe everything I read in the blogs (as I have been a victim to articles that we're not completely factual myself, such as pregnancy rumors, Peter cheating on me, TBA school closing, foreclosures, etc,). Side Note: Kenya has never called to check on me about any of the above.
Anyway, we all have a lot going on all the time, and if I want to talk to these ladies about anything that may be going on in my life, I have all of their phone numbers to call them. Otherwise, I was very happy to learn that all was well with Kenya in the end, and that she had the situation under control just as I would have expected. Thank you all for watching! I appreciate all of you. Trust me, there is more drama to come! Make sure you tune in every Sunday night at 8/7c. Only on Bravo!
Love you guys!
