One of the perks of being a Real Housewife is undoubtedly the non-stop product opportunities. A Housewife's job is never just a Housewife as she hawks everything from modeling schools, to tasers, to spinoff plots, to handbag/hair lines/wines, etc.
Cynthia Bailey has been cashing in on Real Housewives of Atlanta fame with the opening of The Bailey Agency and now with a hair care line and a wine. Talking to The Huffington Post, Cynthia reveals the secrets of leveraging the Housewife Hustle.
"I definitely have benefited from the exposure, launching my business on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, but you do [have to be prepared]," Cynthia admits. "The main thing is don’t overwhelm yourself. Figure out exactly what it is that you want to do, stay focused on that one thing and make that successful. Then you can add things later."

One of the downfalls of mixing friends with work is that sometimes things can get a little treacly. Case in point when Cynthia felt forced to fire Porsha Stewart from her pageant this season.
"It's tough working with family and friends. You think that's who you'd be the most comfortable working with, but it's hard to separate that business [aspect]," Cynthia acknowledges. "So I'm more comfortable keeping family family and business, business. For the most part, I don’t think it’s ever a really good idea."
The secret to making it all work, is hard work and non-stop promoting. "I have a great work ethic. I really am learning how to prioritize things, between being a wife, a mom; I still have my modeling career going on, I have my business, the Bailey Agency School of Fashion, and I'm also on a little reality TV show that takes up a lot of my time," Cynthia remarks.
Moving on, tonight is part three of the RHOA reunion. The mayhem continues when Madame Krayonce whips out some more fantrashtic behavior.
The husbands take the stage and Kenya accuses Apollo of being obsessed with her and texting her all the time. Oh my. I'm so wondering if this is true? ESCANDALE! Fanyonce better hope she doesn't get upcloseandpersonal with Phaedra Sparks! Gone WIth The Wind Fan-Fried?
Her Made in Mexico booty might melt!
Reality Tea will be live-tweeting the action and hiding behind our own fan during all the cringe-worthy moments.
