During the last season of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Cynthia Bailey “dated” Will Jones. I say “dated” because she didn’t want to be in an official relationship and she was very open about dating around and not wanting anything exclusive right after her divorce.
That relationship did not last, but now Cynthia has a new man. The Atlanta Housewife is not naming names, but she did confirm that she has a new love interest.
Thanks to Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes‘ drama, it’s easy to forget that there are actually other people on Real Housewives of Atlanta. There are six full-time cast members and a plethora of side players, but when NeNe and Kim are going at it, there’s just nothing else worth paying attention to.
A few episodes ago, Cynthia Bailey’s kind-of-sort-of relationship with Will Jones was a hot topic of conversation. Normally Twitter would have been blowing up after that awkward kiss in the car, but with everything going on with Kim that’s just child’s play and was very easy to look over.
Aside from her (seemingly) controlling ex-husband, Porsha Williams has not had a legitimate love interest on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Sure, we’ve been subjected to viewing some failed dates and some faux relationships, but nothing that felt like more than a story line.
Nevertheless, a lot of people are really pushing for Porsha to get together her Dish Nation coworker Rickey Smiley.
All the way from the comfort of her own home in Atlanta, Kim Zolciak stole the show. She sent a scathing group text to the entire cast dissing NeNe Leakes for parking in a handicap space and (allegedly) having roaches in her bathroom and all hell broke loose.
Cynthia told Porsha Williams to tell her if she heard anything else about her boo Will Jones, yet she got offended when Porsha did just that. Then, NeNe decided she and Cynthia should get the best rooms and said “the older girls need to go up” and the “middle age” girls need to downgrade their rooms. Then she got offended when Kandi Burruss conveyed the same exact message that she did but she used the word “elder” instead. NeNe continued to insist that she wasn’t talking about age even though that was what she was talking about.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast members have been very suspicious of Cynthia Bailey’s new man Will Jones from the get-go. Cynthia kept saying that he was “too good to be true” and she never expected to find someone so soon after her divorce from Peter Thomas. Everyone else viewed him as an opportunist looking to cash in on Cynthia’s notoriety as a Real Housewife.
Kandi Burrusspointed out that he was on reality TV dating shows. The new girl Eva Marcillesays she met Will’s GIRLFRIEND and the timeline doesn’t add up based on what Will said to Cynthia earlier in that episode. Even Porsha Williams had some tea to spill about Cynthia’s man. On the show, Cynthia was visibly upset as she was caught between feeling like a fool in public and looking for the best in a guy that she likes. Nevertheless, she has never adamantly defended Will. Instead, she has listened to everyone’s input and just “hoped” that they were wrong. I figured that she was just trying to keep a story line under wraps and she would speak out later, but maybe she’s not defending Will because they are not together these days. Or at least that’s what their recent Instagram posts convey.
It looks like things really start heating up on Real Housewives of Atlanta during the next episode when Kim Zolciak goes off on NeNe Leakes about roaches and handicap parking. Other than Kim’s explosive guest appearances, this has been a slow-moving season so far.
