Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey’s personal life is flourishing. On October 10, 2020, Cynthia married her man, Mike Hill. Their wedding had over 250 guests, so Bravo peaced out of filming the nuptials for RHOA due to Covid safety issues.
Cynthia isn’t letting any fine women come to her house when her husband is at home, and twerking is a no-no. Mike had a history of cheating on his previous wives, and Cynthia is removing any opportunity.
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey was smitten with Mike Hill from the jump. They even had the cute nickname, “CHill.” She put it out in the universe that she wanted to marry Mike in 2020. The model was previously married to Peter Thomas, but they called it quits in 2016.
Mike asked for Cynthia’s hand in marriage on July 26, 2019 at the grand opening of the Bailey Wine Center. The RHOA star was shocked! You know what else was shocking? Finding out that Mike and his ex-wife used to watch the show, and Cynthia was their favorite Housewife. Wow.
Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Season 13 wasn’t all that. There are rumors that a cast shake-up may be in the works, and honestly, the franchise needs it.
Cynthia Bailey was involved in some of the action this season. Her dungeon-themed bachelorette party, which was thrown by RHOA co-star Kandi Burruss, featured stripper Bolo. And Porsha Williams and Tanya Sam were alleged to have spent some sexy private time with Bolo.
Looking back, Cynthia Bailey has had quite a run on the Real Housewives of Atlanta. She’s filmed eleven seasons, two weddings (well, one officially filmed by Bravo) and a whole lot of drama in the NeNe Leakes department. She managed a spot alongside Kenya Moore on the upcoming Real Housewives All-Stars spinoff, which has to royally piss off NeNe. But looking back at Season 13, even though she got married to Mike Hill, 50 Cynt was on the sidelines most of the time. But her dungeon-themed bachelorette party did give us #Bologate, but that’s about it.
Whenever a Real Housewives city is in between seasons, it always sparks conversation about who will return. And when it comes to RHOA, it seems like it might be Cynthia’s time. She hasn’t had a lot of drama since Peter Thomas and NeNe exited her life. She started her Housewives’ career with a wedding and if she doesn’t return next season, she would have ended with one too. And she recently removed #RHOA from her Instagram bio, sparking those annual rumors that she’s headed on her way out.
After Season 13 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, the cast is clearly due for a shake-up. Marlo Hampton needs a peach in her hand, to fix the “snoozefest” of a show. Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams’ long-time feud has been overplayed. And we even had #Bologate and Prophet Lott, yet the season just didn’t hit like the good old days. But I gotta give the ATL ladies a break — the COVID-19 pandemic took its toll on all Bravo shows. And it definitely wasn’t the worst — looking at you, Real Housewives of Orange County.
There’s been a lot of buzz about who will appear on RHOA Season 14. LaToya Ali may be one and done after her explosive debut. There are always rumors swirling that Phaedra Parks and/or Sheree Whitfield will make a return. Maybe even NeNe Leakes, never say never. And it’s obvious some of the girls just need to go.
Even though Cynthia Bailey went forward with her
superspreader wedding last year, she brought very little to the show. She really has been chilling on the sidelines since the days of Peter Thomas causing drama are behind her. Just look at the last reunion — she barely said a peep. Aside from defending having a huge wedding in the midst of a global pandemic, so big that even Bravo bailed on filming.
Despite arguably being the OG of OGs, NeNe Leakes’ departure from the Real Housewives of Atlanta was very disappointing. She closed her laptop in the middle of a Zoom reunion never to return, after failed contract negotiations, and rumors of a firing, which led her to forgo her peach. And to put the nail in the coffin, she’s called out the network, Andy Cohen particularly, and has been trying to rally fans to boycott Bravo. No matter how much Marlo Hampton hopes, it looks like NeNe’s time as a housewife really is over for good.
And it’s disappointing because when NeNe was good on RHOA, she was so good. Starting with her feuds with Kim Zolciak-Biermann during Season 1, NeNe delivered reads and one-liners unlike any other housewife from any other city. But it got to her head, which is evident with the demise of her friendship with one-time bestie Cynthia Bailey. While the two somewhat made amends during the reunion, NeNe proved that she let her ego get bigger than the show. And that never works out well, just look at what’s happened to Vicki Gunvalson or Danielle Staub.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta are currently causing more drama off-camera than the entire last season. Porsha Williams broke the internet when she announced she was engaged to Falynn Guobadia’s ex Simon Guobadia. It’s obvious via Instagram posts from the new couple that they’re living in a world of their own. But fans have a lot of questions about how Porsha ended up with a $1.2 million ring on her finger after just one month of dating, or so they say. Sounds to me, and Garcelle Beauvais, like a storyline for Season 14.
Porsha4Real has really started a mess with all of this. She brought Falynn, who made $0 from Bravo, onto RHOA in the first place. Now she says they aren’t friends and Simon says Falynn is a cheater. Meanwhile, Falynn is pulling out receipts to show they aren’t even legally divorced yet. Give this girl a peach. While fans disapprove of the total lack of girl code, they, and Andy Cohen, all can’t wait to see how this plays out.
This is it folks! The last regular episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta has arrived. The season started out rockier than ever, but things have picked up in a big way lately. Somebody pray for LaToya Ali because according to Drew Sidora, she has committed the ultimate sin. She’s openly accusing her of sleeping with Prophet Lott. Why is whatever relationship they may or may not have any of her business? Make it make sense.
If LaToya really is dipping into the pond of divinity like Drew claims, so what? Why is she being extra extra and cancelling her baby’s blessing ceremony? She’s doing the most, and it screams desperate and thirsty. LaToya isn’t anyone’s favorite cup of tea, but come on now. What she chooses to do and whom she chooses to do it with isn’t any of her business. Drew didn’t like Kenya Moore investigating StripperGate, so why is she doing this? Hmm.
