New year, new Cynthia Bailey! Joined by The Real Housewives of Dubai’s Chanel AyanThe Real Housewives of Atlanta alum turned a New York City sidewalk into a catwalk, and we can’t think of a better way to strut into the new year, either.

How to Watch

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

Cynthia posted an Instagram video of their “model behavior” on Tuesday, December 27, writing that she’s “walking into 2023 like this!!!” Setting the clip to the tune of Mary J. Blige’s “Just Fine,” she added in the caption that the “gorgeous” Ayan is “always a vibe.” 

But she wasn’t the only RHODubai ’Wife whose praises Cynthia sang. In the caption, she credited their “beautiful videographer” — none other than Lesa Milan. Among the hashtags the RHOA alum added were “Bravo sisters” and “queens.”



When RHOA’s Marlo Hampton commented with three red hearts, Ayan sent back a sweet message and even offered to play matchmaker, writing, “Miss you gorgeous sis come visit me… let me find you a good sheikh.”

Not so long ago, the duo was hanging out together at BravoCon 2022, and Cynthia even shared a video of them dancing to Beyoncé’s “Cuff It.” “I can never get enough of you,” she captioned the October 17 post, tagging Ayan. “The fashions, the hair, the fabulousness that is ALL of you is so refreshing to watch! Thank you for always loving on me, giving me my flowers [and] making me laugh queen.”

The mini dance party was a welcome distraction from the fact that she and Mike Hill had just announced their split the day before BravoCon began. Now that they have finalized their divorce in recent weeks, that’s surely one thing Cynthia will be glad to leave behind as she begins a new chapter in 2023.

As Cynthia said during a Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen taping at BravoCon, “I’m not focused on my past — I’m looking forward to my future.”
