Who Did Camryn Manheim Always Go Up Against for Roles?

Cynthia Bailey has certainly been rubbing elbows with a lot of stars lately. Not only did she come in third place in Celebrity Big Brother Season 3 this past winter, but she also landed her first major film role in the Lifetime Original Movie Cruel Instruction, starring alongside Camryn Manheim.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Peacock and the Bravo App.

So how did Cynthia do in her first film? Well, she got a glowing review from none other than her co-star. "She acted for the first time in that movie I did, and she was fantastic," Manheim said during her April 18 appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.

Check out the above clip for more of Manheim's thoughts on Cynthia, as well as the scoop on the Law & Order actor's other notable co-stars through the years.

In an Instagram post back in March, Manheim also said of filming Cruel Instruction, "It was such a pleasure working with these talented women."

Cynthia responded to Manheim's post with three red heart emojis in the comments section. The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum continued to show her Cruel Instruction co-star some love by sharing a throwback photo of the two on the film's set.

Cynthia also shared more behind-the-scenes pics from shooting Cruel Instruction.

In fact, the whole experience of filming Cruel Instruction was pretty amazing for Cynthia, as she shared in several Instagram posts earlier this year.

In one post from March 12, Cynthia opened up about how much being a part of this movie meant to her. "This experience honestly [has] been a dream come true for me," she gushed. "I am so humbled [and] grateful to be [a part] of this incredible cast!"

Cynthia gave a shout-out to her co-stars in the post, including Kelcey Mawema, Morgan Taylor Campbell, and Viv Leacock, as well as director Stanley M. Brooks, and of course Manheim, who she said was "INCREDIBLE" in the film.

When Cynthia appeared on WWHL in March, she opened up about how thrilled she was to be pursuing a career in acting following her time on RHOA. "This next chapter has been amazing, Andy [Cohen]," she said. "One of the things that I prayed for and manifested was to move into my acting career, and it's happening."

RHOA returns with plenty of familiar (and new!) faces on Sunday, May 1, at 8/7c. Get your first look at the new season below and catch up on the series on the Bravo app.
