BravoTV.com: What did you think of the date with Evan?
Cynthia Bailey: I really enjoyed my date with Evan once I got past the chickens and the blindfold! Although it started out kind of interesting in the beginning, he was very sweet and romantic. He’s an amazing guy, and I love hanging out with him. We’re friends. As far as anything other than friendship, he is definitely my type, but I’m just looking for someone a little older, at least 35 up. That’s my preference.
BravoTV.com: How do you feel about Noelle dating someone who lives in Charlotte?
CB: I would prefer for Noelle to be dating someone who lives in the same city that she does. Long distance relationships are tough, and although I’m happy that she has met a great guy that she really likes, I would have more peace of mind if he lived closer. The traveling back and forth drives me crazy. Most of the time she flies there, or I ride with her because I’m very nervous and uncomfortable with her driving almost 4 hours alone. I am so grateful that Peter is in Charlotte just in case she needs anything. He always goes out of his way to look out for her when she’s in town, and that gives me some peace.
BravoTV.com: What went through your mind watching Kenya's breakdown?
CB: Kenya just got married, and as a newlywed, this should be a happy time — the honeymoon is barely over! It was really hard to watch her break down. I pray that she and her husband have the strength to overcome their issues, and I wish them the best. Marriage is not easy, especially when it’s a very public marriage. I know firsthand.
