Cynthia Bailey: My heart truly goes out to Gregg and NeNe during this difficult time. This is a huge wake-up call and life change for them both as husband and wife. Also, as a family. I pray that Gregg makes the best decision regarding his cancer treatments FOR HIM. He is the one that will have to physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally deal with whatever his decision is. He is the only one that knows in his heart what is best for him. I support his decision completely and will be there to support him when called to do so. What’s the story behind eating red clay dirt?

CB: I grew up in rural Alabama, and some of my older family members used to eat red clay dirt. As a kid, I was introduced to it. I thought it was crazy for people to eat dirt until I actually tasted it. I really liked it! I haven’t eaten it in years, however, when I was pregnant with Noelle, I had cravings for it. I didn’t eat any because I didn’t know if it was healthy for the baby, but I wanted to! Apparently, dirt eating is really a “real thing,” and you can actually buy it in some stores and online. What were your first impressions of Shamari?

CB: I like Shamari. She is very comfortable in her own skin. Says whatever she is thinking. She is unapologetically who she is. I can respect that.
