Season 1 of Peacock’s Real Housewives Ultimate Girls’ Trip was refreshing, wasn’t it? We saw Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey quiz Teresa Giudice all about prison. The two ladies hit it off, and Cynthia said, “I’m happy to call her my new friend.” But did Cynthia score an invite to Teresa and Luis “Louie” Ruelas’ summer wedding?
Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps straddled the married concierge, Michael Burchill, to take a shot. As one does. Ramona Singer managed to offend nearly everyone. And Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards got off on the wrong foot with Cynthia.
But Cynthia and RHOA co-star Kenya Moore went on the tropical trip as besties, but that is not how their relationship ended up. “With all that said, she pissed me off. I was really hurt, and I couldn’t let it go,” Cynthia said. “I had to think about why I was feeling this way, because I love Kenya. I know she loves me. I had to think and pray about our relationship.”
One person who didn’t watch RHUGT was RHOA cast member Kandi Burruss. According to Page Six, Kandi shared that she heard all about the trip on the Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef podcast. “I heard enough about it because I heard Kenya’s side and I heard Cynthia’s side, unfortunately,” Kandi explained. Kandi shared that she “did not want to be in the middle of that” because she “love[s] both of them.”
During RHUGT, Cynthia butted heads with some of her co-stars and felt that Kenya didn’t have her back. Cynthia told Kenya how she felt, but Kenya did little to reassure Cynthia about their friendship.
Kandi admitted that the duo’s relationship is still rocky. “I really hope that at some point that they can come back on the same page and rebuild a friendship, hopefully,” Kandi remarked. “Right now, eh.”
In November of 2021, Kenya told her side of the story to the Jasmine BRAND. “There was a moment during the filming where [Cynthia] just felt like she had gotten into it with some of the other ladies over a situation and I wasn’t stepping up,” Kenya stated. “And I’m like, ‘No, when you watch it back, you will see that I stepped up plenty.’”
During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live in March of 2022, Cynthia shared where her friendship is with Kenya. The video was shared by The Peach Report Daily’s Instagram account. “You know, relationships, friendships go up and down. And it’s really tough,” Cynthia stated. “I will always have love for her, but we are not where we used to be,” she added.
Cynthia turned in her peach after being offered a Friend of the Housewives role for Season 14, so RHOA viewers won’t see Kenya and Cynthia working on their relationship. Only time will tell if these two can get to a good place once again.
