After months of speaking it into existence, Cynthia Bailey is engaged! Mike Hill popped the question on July 26. And, yes, Real Housewives of Atlanta is filming Season 12 right now. Of course, this was caught on film.
Aside from that, Mike had some professional photographers on hand to document the moment and a rep for the couple sent some pictures our way!
According to the representative, this all went down at the grand opening of The Bailey WineCellar. An engagement and a self-promotion opportunity at the same time just adds up to a perfect event for most Real Housewives.
This what we were told went down: “Mike pretended to toast to Cynthia and her wine cellar. Then Kayla (Mike’s daughter) said ‘No dad I think you should propose like this…’ and handed him a bottle with a question mark on it. Then he told Noëlle [Robinson] that he needed her help to open the bottle and she passed him the ring box. Noelle helped him open the box and dropped to one knee professing his love.” It sounds pretty elaborate. And a little confusing, but will probably make a lot more sense to see it on the show.

There was a super sweet moment though: “the kids were standing behind him with a ‘Can We Be A Family?’ sign designed like a puzzle piece.” Cue the waterworks.
However, it sounds like the proposal will induce some laughs as well. Apparently, “Cynthia was pissed at first because she thought he was proposing to the cellar. She cried and said YES when he proposed.” What does that even mean: “proposing to the cellar”? Hopefully, that will be more clear when the episode airs.
Mike was ahead of the game too. He already had a wedding planner on hand, Courtney Ajinca, who also helped orchestrate the proposal.
It’s unclear which Housewives were in attendance, but I know what most of us are thinking: Was NeNe Leakes there? Probably not, but it will be interesting to see how she
shades reacts to this engagement. She has already accused Cynthia of planning to get engaged for a storyline.
Maybe, just maybe, the pending wedding will give the two of them a different perspective and they will hash out their differences and squash their feud? Then again, why would Cynthia want NeNe at her wedding considering the how NeNe made Eva Marcille’s big day all about herself last season? If anything, it would be a relief to not have NeNe in attendance. So nasty, so rude, I know.
