Cynthia Bailey has been living her life for all the world to see since she first put herself in front of The Real Housewives of Atlanta cameras. And we've seen her ups and downs over the years, with small hints as to what her family is like. Now we've learned a little more about the former model's family when they appeared on Iyanla: Fix My Life. During the intense and emotional appearance, Cynthia, her sister, Malorie Bailey, and her mom, Barbara Bailey, took a closer look at the romantic decisions Malorie has made over the years (clips below), including marrying a man she only knew for a couple months and how that has affected her life. (As fans may recall, Cynthia's mom also very intensely discussed her life and experiences during an appearance on RHOA last season, which you can check out in the clip above.)

The experience was definitely eye-opening for Cynthia, who learned a lot about her sibling from the sit-down. "So proud of my beautiful sister [Malorie] for opening up about her life [and] personal struggles. She is a very private person, and even as her sister, I am still learning more about her journey everyday. Life is not easy for any of us, and we are all searching for love, happiness [and] purpose," Cynthia reflected about the experience with her little sister. "I pray that you continue to strive daily to make good, positive & healthy choices for yourself [and] the people around you. You only get one life, and you deserve to live every second of it to the fullest. One of the most important lessons that I have learned in my life and from being on television is that when you live in your truth, you have to take the good and the bad. You learn [and] grow from your mistakes. Let your wins and your failures serve as inspiration [and] motivation to inspire others who feel alone. Thank you [Iyanla] for your time [and] your counsel. As a family, we still have a long way to go [and] I believe this is just the beginning of our healing process. I am excited about all the amazing possibilities. I love you and God bless you Mal. This too shall pass."

Later Malorie also reflected on sharing her experience with the world on Instagram. Read her full statement, below:

I would like thank each and everyone for the thoughtful messages and prayers. After watching the show I find it necessary to clear up some things.. Although my husband and I married after 2 1/2 months of dating, we remained happily married for many of the past 13 years. My husband was my best friend, and until recently....unexpected circumstances have forced us to make the difficult decision to go our separate ways. As challenging as this is at times...we still have love for one another. We are in a great place of healing and living our best lives apart, but maintaining healthy communications. Gold Digger vs Goal Digger I have always worked and I was fortunate to have a great 19 years career with the Airlines. At my husband request. I retired from the airlines in order to be able to focus on supporting his career overseas and build our martial foundation. However, to maintain my financial independence, I dedicated myself to managing my husband’s career endeavors and establishing my own custom jewelry and hair extension line. In my eyes this would be a goal digger. Being on Atlanta Housewives has been a blessing. The show has been a great platform for me and I would not trade the experience for anything. My life is not as public as my sisters. I have had the fortune of living a very established life. I have traveled the world living in 9 different countries. Throughout the years of filming with my sister somehow I became Mal, Cynthia Bailey’s sister. losing my identity as Malorie Bailey. I decided to be on the Iyanla show to seek guidance and presented a excellent opportunity for me to get to a place where I could heal and focus on living my best life. My goal and focus now is to help women to live their best life as well. I want to help women seek financial freedom with increasing their credit scores, become entrepreneurs in the hair industry and learn how to become real estate investors.
