The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast members have been very suspicious of Cynthia Bailey’s new man Will Jones from the get-go. Cynthia kept saying that he was “too good to be true” and she never expected to find someone so soon after her divorce from Peter Thomas. Everyone else viewed him as an opportunist looking to cash in on Cynthia’s notoriety as a Real Housewife.
Kandi Burruss pointed out that he was on reality TV dating shows. The new girl Eva Marcille says she met Will’s GIRLFRIEND and the timeline doesn’t add up based on what Will said to Cynthia earlier in that episode. Even Porsha Williams had some tea to spill about Cynthia’s man. On the show, Cynthia was visibly upset as she was caught between feeling like a fool in public and looking for the best in a guy that she likes. Nevertheless, she has never adamantly defended Will. Instead, she has listened to everyone’s input and just “hoped” that they were wrong. I figured that she was just trying to keep a story line under wraps and she would speak out later, but maybe she’s not defending Will because they are not together these days. Or at least that’s what their recent Instagram posts convey.
On Valentines Day, Cynthia shared a photo of her daughter Noelle Robinson with the caption “My [heart emoji]. Love like no other. Hope you guys had a lovely Valentines Day #myvalentine .” That’s not necessarily a red flag. Many mothers have shared loving posts with photos of their children for Valentine’s Day. Plus, she can have more than one Valentine, especially when one is her own daughter.
Nevertheless, Cynthia also posted a photo of flowers with the caption “Valentines Day was just another work day for me until my friend @mrwestmrfresh showed up at my hotel door with these. Such a sweetheart #happyvalentinesday #nobu.” Why was Valentine’s Day “just another work day” for Cynthia if she has a man? Sure, some people are not into Valentine’s Day, which is understandable- but she did post other Valentine’s Day photos, so why not give a shout out to Will?
Those two posts can be interpreted in many ways, but a post that Will shared is very suspect. He posted a photo of himself alone and wrote, “You must not allow anyone or anything to take away your peace of mind or unbalance you. Don’t let even the worst of storms steal your inner peace and calm. You are strong, hold on to your peace. Happy Valentines Day!” That screams “single man” to me. Yes, I know that Cynthia and Will were never “boyfriend and girlfriend,” but these Instagram posts do not look promising. Unless, they’re just both looking to generate a story (like this one).
Yesterday Cynthia shared this quote: “Saying yes to happiness means learning to say no to things and people that stress you out.” Based on the show, I would assume this was directed at her naysayer costars, but based on the other posts, could this be directed at Will?
TELL US- DOES IT SEEM LIKE CYNTHIA & WILL ARE STILL TOGETHER? DOES WILL SEEM LIKE AN OPPORTUNIST OR IS HE GENUINELY INTO CYNTHIA?
