When Cynthia Bailey began her journey on Real Housewives of Atlanta, it was a big get for the show. Having one of the first successful Black models of our time appearing on the program certainly didn’t hurt the ensemble cast. Cynthia had a very close relationship with NeNe Leakes, which was tumultuous at best, but it managed to sustain several seasons of drama. Cynthia also had an interesting marriage with Peter Thomas. Mostly Peter grifted her money for failed bars and the marriage ultimately ended because no one thought it would last in the first place.
It’s probably safe to say Cynthia is a storyline drifter. She never seems to have a main focus for herself, but does participate in other people’s trials and tribulations. But sooner or later viewers will notice a lack of substance. She’s there, she’s involved, but boring won’t keep a peach. Cynthia’s second wedding is her current focus, but we’ve been here before. Recently, Cynthia appeared on The Wendy Williams Show and Wendy Williams implied Cynthia’s daughter Noelle Robinson came out on RHOA for Cynthia’s storyline. It definitely provoked a response, and Cynthia did not let Wendy get away with it. This is the Cynthia we’ve been waiting for.
