Cynthia Bailey Doing Damage Control After Being Exposed
Cynthia Bailey appeared on the Strahan and Sara Show Monday to dish about the aftermath of the Real Housewives of Atlanta finale and what that means for her friendship with NeNe Leakes .
When co-host, Michael Strahan asked the former model if hope exist to restore her friendship with NeNe Leakes, Cynthia replied:
“I will always have love for her and I never say never…but it ain’t gonna be next week.”
She continues: “Again, sometimes friendships need a break. And I feel like looking back on everything and knowing the kind of person that I am and the friend that I’ve been to her — this friendship just isn’t healthy for me at this point.”
Press play to watch the full interview below:
During the finale episode, Cynthia Bailey hosted a party to announce her new Seagram’s cocktail beverage. Drama erupted after NeNe Leakes discovered former Housewife, Kenya Moore, was in attendance without getting the heads up from party host/close friend, Cynthia.
Cynthia vehemently denied knowing Kenya Moore would show up and claimed Kandi Burruss was responsible for bringing the former Miss USA to the event.
However, Cynthia was exposed when a live mic caught her trying to cover up that she plotted to bring NeNe’s rival Kenya Moore back on the show without Leakes’ knowledge.
“I’m supposed to act like I didn’t know Kenya was coming,” Bailey, 52, whispered to boyfriend Mike Hill while at the launch event.
The Bailey Agency owner also took to YouTube with Kandi Burruss to do damage control over her actions in Sunday’s episode. Watch below.
