Bravotv.com: Were you surprised when Noelle said she wanted to go to college in LA?
Cynthia Bailey: Noelle and I moved from New York City to Atlanta almost ten years ago. Although Atlanta is home, Noelle spends a lot of time in LA and New York with her dad, who is bicoastal. I always hoped that Noelle would move back to New York to go to college, because it is our home away from home, and only a two hour flight from Atlanta. On the other hand, I also love LA, and I spend quite a bit of time there for business. I am excited for Noelle to go to college in LA, if that ends up being where she decides to go. I always assumed it would be one or the other, so I wasn't really that surprised. I just want her to be successful and happy.
Bravotv.com: Why did you decide to let Noelle be the face of your CARGO line? Did she meet your expectations?
CB: I decided to make my daughter Noelle the face of CARGO because she is a beautiful, smart, and well rounded young lady. She is a younger version of me, and appeals to a more youthful demographic. Noelle is the perfect choice to represent the Cynthia Bailey brand. She has expressed an interest in modeling, and I will do everything I can to support her. The LA CARGO launch and the reveal was a huge success. Noelle did an amazing job. She has a very promising career ahead of her. I am very proud of her.
