Cynthia Bailey opens up about her divorce from Mike Hill

The last time viewers saw Cynthia on RHOA, she was still basking in all the love from her marriage to Mike Hill. However, Cynthia was in a different mindset on Sunday’s episode when she chatted with Kandi, revealing that she’s now back in the ATL “rebuilding [her] life” after separating from her ex-husband.

“I know you don’t want to get all into that,” Kandi said, to which Cynthia responded, “I really don’t.” At this point, several images of news headlines about her divorce started to appear on the screen.

Moments later, Cynthia opened up to Kandi about how things have been for her while trying to adjust to the change in her love life.

“It just sucks when, you know, this is my second divorce,” Cynthia explained about her situation. “On one hand, it’s like I don’t want to stay in something if I’m not happy… But the reality is [that] I’m a 55-year-old woman.”

Of course, Kandi tried to boost Cynthia’s spirit by assuring her that everything would be “OK” despite her feelings now. And while Cynthia found comfort in Kandi’s kind words, she couldn’t help but think about what went wrong with her ex-husband.

“So here I am starting all over again,” Cynthia said in her confessional. “I am very disappointed that my marriage did not work out. God is moving my steps, even if it’s away from my last marriage.”

Although Cynthia is working on getting past her recent heartbreak, she told Kandi she hasn’t given up on finding love, saying, “I’m a Pisces, so I’m always gonna live for love.”

Cynthia Bailey and Kenya Moore give an update on their friendship

Later in the episode, Cynthia made an appearance at Kandi’s Peach Buzz Museum, where she got to see the other Georgia peaches. The former model received a warm welcome from everyone, including Kenya Moore, who announced her arrival by exclaiming, “Miss Bailey is in the house!”

Moments after the ladies embraced, they shed light on where things stand between them after their falling-out on Season 1 of The Real Housewives of Ultimate Girls Trip.

“It took several months before Kenya and I had a conversation after the girls’ trip,” Cynthia shared in her interview. She went on to reveal that they reconciled after a conversation at Teresa Giudice’s wedding in August 2022. “It felt good to see her.”

When it was time for Kenya to weigh in on her friendship status with Cynthia, she said, “I’m just so happy to have my sister back, and now that I know what she’s been going through, I’m never, ever going to not be there for her.”
