Roommates, Cynthia Bailey has graced our TV screens for the last 11 seasons as a co-star on Bravo’s long-running hit series, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,”—but as talk surrounds the upcoming season and who will remain a peach-holder, Cynthia gave us the tea about the show, the recent viral Wendy Williams interview, her comments about former bestie NeNe Leakes and how she’s celebrating the 4th Of July with a new partnership with Seagram’s!
Getting right into it, Cynthia spoke about being practically blind-sided by Wendy Williams commenting that she should be fired and asking Cynthia who she would like to see never return to the “RHOA” franchise. When we asked her if she still believes that her former friend NeNe Leakes’ time on the show has passed, she stated “She recently did an interview with a blogger stating that I should not return to RHOA & should have never been on “RHOA” in the first place. This is someone I considered to be a friend for most of my time on the show. Friends or not, I have always consistently & publicly had only POSITIVE things to say about her in regards to “RHOA.” So when Wendy asked me that question I said her name. At this point, I have no concerns/thoughts on whether or not her time on the show has passed, or thoughts/concerns about her in general. I have moved on.”
Cynthia also got candid about what her future would hold if she didn’t return to “RHOA” for the upcoming season and if she would ever consider doing reality TV again. “Absolutely! Preferably not drama based. I have been on RHOA consistently as a peach holder for over a decade, and I would like to focus on the next chapter of my journey with a little less drama. I have a few projects that I can’t talk about yet on the table. On camera & behind the scenes. I have also focused on my acting career. BRAVO has been amazing to me. My journey with the show has been incredible. When my time is up, I will leave the same way I came in, with gratitude, grace & class,” she said.
Getting over the drama and back to her happy place, Cynthia filled us in on how life has been as a newlywed to her husband Mike Hill. “Married life has been awesome! We have been married for 8 months now, and look forward to celebrating our 1 year anniversary 10/10/21. As a newlywed, my focus is finding the perfect balance between work and my personal life. Making time for one another, spending quality time together. As an entrepreneur, it is a struggle because I am always traveling & working. Mike is a good man & a good person. He is solid. WHOLE!I am so blessed. I got a husband, and a best friend. We are not perfect but we are perfect for each other,” Cynthia told us.
Finally, Cynthia is on to bigger and better things, like her brand new partnership with Seagram’s Escapes just in time for the 4th Of July—including a new cocktail recipe that’s perfect for summer. “I started working with Seagram’s Escapes in 2018. I just loved that they were a female-focused brand that really wanted to just empower women. It was a really natural fit for me. Together we launched my signature flavor – Peach Bellini – in 2019! Since launch, it’s become a top favorite with Seagram’s Escapes drinkers!”
She also included a recipe to get your ready for your all your summer festivities:
“This 4th of July I’ll be celebrating with the Seagram’s Escapes Italian Ice Variety Pack Featuring Cherry, Lemon and Blue Raspberry Italian Ice! This pack is so much fun for patriotic Red White and Blue Cocktails.
One of my favorites is called the Red White and Blue Slush:
Red White and Blue Slush: For each layer, combine two cups of ice, 1 oz. vodka and 1 cup of either the red, white or blue Italian Ice – one layer for each color! Blend each layer separately until smooth. Store mixtures in the freezer until you’re ready to build the cocktails. Divide evenly between 4 glasses, stacking red, white and blue layers and enjoy!”
