Cynthia said she’s dabbled in acting over the years but she obviously focused on modeling, adding, “More recently, over the past couple of years I have been cast for different roles, and I have fallen head over heels in love with acting.”
“So when Kenya told me about her pilot and that she was interested in Noelle’s dad, Leon, for one of the roles,” explained Cynthia, “I immediately let her know that I wanted to audition for it. Up until that point, Kenya knew nothing of my acting ambitions, and seemed a bit reluctant to let me try out. I knew that if she gave me the opportunity to audition, I would only have one chance to impress her. I showed up at the audition on time, in character, totally prepared, dressed to impress, and showed out!! I landed the role!!”
The 6th episode of this season starts out with Kandi Burruss in the studio as she reveals she wants to develop an openly gay male artist, and in walks in the flamboyant Lawrence aka Sheree’s hairstylist. Kandi asks Lawrence to bust a tune and he does it well in a voice that is surprisingly deep, a sharp contrast from his speaking voice.
As Kandi plays the song she created for Lawrence, a song that could be interpreted as an anthem for mistresses, in walks Kim right on cue. “I think that Lawrence will only be able to reach a certain audience. I mean good luck in Kansas,” states a jealous Kim in her interview. Good one Kimmy.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S EPISODE OF THE ATLANTA HOUSEWIVES?
The surprise however comes in the form of Cynthia Bailey, a model who has also been cast. This brings the total number of Atlanta Housewives to a large seven. The five returning housewives brought us so much drama last year, one can only imagine what the addition of two new women will bring.
As for what is known about the ladies, Phaedra is a high power celebrity attorney that has represented celebrities such as Jermaine Dupri and Bobby Brown. She recently got married to Apollo Nida, and according to various reports, her husband has a rather impressive criminal background, and reportedly did a couple of years in prison.
As for Cynthia, she has a daughter with actor Leon Robinson aka Leon, and apparently has a lot of celebrity friends. She is reportedly best friends with actors Boris Kodjoe and Nicole Ari Parker.
This is a smart move on Bravo’s part as there had been rumors the five returning Atlanta housewives were all getting along, so these two new additions to the cast should shake things up a bit. After all, we would not want to watch an entire season about the women being nice to each other right? Anyone remember the infamous boring season 2 reunion?
