Cynthia Bailey isn’t property anyone rains on her parade.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star and former mannikin not solely has her hands during a bunch of various business ventures – she’s additionally wheelwork up to become Mrs. Hill.
Back in July, Bailey’s sportscaster beau got down on one knee in front of their closest family, friends, and castmates.
Though the engagement wasn’t necessarily a surprise (Bailey jokingly embraces her ‘thirst’ on the season 12 premiere), their exciting new romance came together perfectly.
ESSENCE spoke completely too Greek deity regarding her coming wedding (which she’s receptive motion-picture photography for the show), blending families and where things stand with a particular RHOA frenemy.
You wore a very unique wedding dress [at your wedding to Peter Thomas]. Do you have a vision for what you want to look like on your wedding day?
The dress just has to speak to me. It just has to feel right, just like my fiancé did [when we met.] Sometimes there’s just no rhyme or reason. I am open to doing a white dress this time around.
My dress from my last wedding was a platinum-silver color.
I am not a standard person, and I will not be a traditional bride.
So even if it’s white, it still may not be a traditional dress. I like what I like, and I want what I want.
In terms of subsidence down and mixing families, have you and Mike decided if you’ll settle in Los Angeles where he lives, or Atlanta?
We’re all here currently in l. a. , tho’ I pay my time between Atlanta and L.A.
As well. We have already started our family dynamic.
Mike has 2 ladies around the same age as [my daughter] Noelle.
They’re all about one year apart.
One of the explanations, why I’m marrying electro-acoustic transducer Hill, is as a result of the appearance at Noelle like she’s his female offspring.
She has decided to spend more time in L.A. to pursue her acting career, and she [moved in with Mike] to see if this is what she wants to do. We have a great blended family relationship. He has a great relationship with Noelle’s dad. We all are a part of Noelle’s life, and we all have something to offer. I love it.
So Mike is used to being in front of the camera as a sportscaster, but reality TV is a different beast.
How is he adjusting to having the cameras film your personal lives along and to the opposite forged members?
Mike is supportive of my period. If I was working at Publix, he would come and support me at Publix.
So however is the group action himself into the show?
One season at a time, doing the best that he can. I think he’s coming in with a good heart and a good spirit, and either people are going to gravitate to that or not. But I know him, I love him, and I’m just so happy that he’s even open to joining in this part of my life.
When beginning my life over, I wondered if I would have to pick between the show and a man.
I decided I’m not compromising myself for anyone.
So I’m thus blessed then grateful that I have a person that’s willing to grant himself to American state fully rather than solely that specialize in his life and career.
It’s simply a lot of confirmation that this is often the person that I need to pay the remainder of my life with.
Speaking of the show, there seems to be some friction with you and Nene.
In the super trailer, she tells Marlo that you have a side to you folks don’t know about.
What is your reaction to that?
One thing I’ve learned about my relationship with Nene is when she’s with you, she’s with you. When she’s against you, she’s against you. That’s her personality, and I know that because I know her. Did it surprise me [to hear]? Not. Do I think there’s any validity to it? No. I know who I am. She knows who I am. The fans know who I am. I think one of the great things about my spirit is it comes through the TV.
Nobody’s attending to very get that Greek deity Bailey may be a villain.
Do I make mistakes? Absolutely. In the end, I own my truth. I still try to walk with grace, and I’m having the best time of my life. I’m 52 years old, and every year of my life counts to me. I want to be happy. If you’re not a part of that happy, you can’t be a part of my life. That goes for relationships, friendships, family and all of the above. Either we’re going to be good, or we’re just going to be okay. That’s what it is.
