Cynthia Bailey And Todd Bridges Are Cool After Celebrity Big Brother Drama

Former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey has been making the reality TV rounds. She decided to quit the franchise after she was offered a part-time contract for Season 14. Cynthia had been a peach-holder since Season 3, so I understand her not wanting to take a Friend of the Housewives role.

Then Cynthia signed on for Season 1 of Peacock’s glorious Housewives mash-up series, Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip. Cynthia’s friendship with RHOA co-star Kenya Moore may have arrived in Turks and Caicos in one piece, but it left broken. Cynthia admitted that her friendship with Kenya was “not where we used to be.”

Then Cynthia entered the Celebrity Big Brother house for Season 3. She aligned herself with Queer Eye star Carson Kressley, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Teddi Mellencamp, and Shanna Moakler.

Cynthia and Carson committed one of the biggest fails of the season when they chose to believe entertainer Todrick Hall over their CBB ally, Shanna. Todrick told Carson and Cynthia that Shanna was gunning for Carson. Lies! So, Head of Household Carson saved Todrick’s ally, Miesha Tate from eviction, and back-doored Shanna. It was unbelievably frustrating to watch. Of course, Carson apologized to Shanna after he was evicted and was able to watch the footage of Todrick playing him.

Cynthia made it to the finale without ever winning a competition. It was impressive. In the end, Miesha and Todrick faced the jury. Miesha walked away with seven votes, with only Cynthia voting for Todrick. Once she realized that Todrick had done her dirty, she also apologized to Shanna for evicting her. Actor Todd Bridges slammed Todrick, saying that he “played an evil game.” As for Todrick? He canceled all the interviews scheduled for after the CBB finale.

According to Bravo’s The Daily Dish, Todd had a fiery argument with Cynthia during their time in the CBB house. Todd was salty that Cynthia voted to save Teddi instead of him when he was up for eviction.

Cynthia discussed her beef with Todd during a March appearance on Watch What Happens Live. “You know what, it really pissed me off that we got into it, because I was, like, his biggest fan in the house,” Cynthia explained. “You know, we had a little disagreement about giving my word to my alliance and his alliance. We did not see eye to eye.”

But Cynthia and Todd were able to make amends. “We worked it out in the end. I apologized, he apologized,” the model remarked. “He’s like my brother now, he’s like my Spades buddy, and we’re good.”

On April 2, 2022, Cynthia shared some photos on Instagram with her buddy, Todd. “‘Different strokes for different folks!’ Caught up with the one [and] only [Todd Bridges] yesterday!” Cynthia wrote.

“Good times outside the [Big Brother] house!!!” Cynthia captioned the photos, along with the hashtags “friends,” “stay tuned,” and “love and light.” Todd shared his appreciation for Cynthia in the comments. “Cynthia can cook and she is such a beautiful and wonderful Black woman,” he posted.

And Cynthia isn’t Todd’s only friendship that was formed on CBB. Todd also bonded with Lamar Odom. During his eviction interview, Lamar told host Julie Chen Moonves that he wanted Todd to act as his sober coach. “I will work with him to get past the struggles of sobriety,” Todd commented. “I also like to talk to him.”
