The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey is opening up about her former best friend’s departure from the show. NeNe Leakes recently announced that her time was up on the show and that she will be focusing on other projects that she better suits career. Cynthia and NeNe once shared a true friendship and were often times allies on RHOA. Many viewers even felt that Cynthia was too loyal to NeNe and believed she did not have a backbone because of it.
However, when NeNe and Cynthia’s friendship diminished, Cynthia Bailey was reborn. A newly formed feud between NeNe and Cynthia then began and the two have yet to make up. Now that NeNe will no longer be a part of the show’s eighth season, Cynthia is opening up for the first time on how she really feels about NeNe’s departure.
Essence.com caught up with Cynthia where she recently attended the ESSENCE festival. Cynthia shared her thoughts on NeNe saying, “I think that there comes a time in your life where you have to do what’s best for you. She will always be the original Atlanta housewife, she started this platform. If there was no Nene there would be no Cynthia, there would be no Kenya, there’d be no anyone on this show.”
Cynthia continues her support of NeNe’s decision adding, “I applaud her for stepping out and doing something else.”
When asked if she will return for the show’s upcoming season, Cynthia confirms, apparently for our benefit, saying, “Absolutely! They need some class on the show.”
Thoughts on what Cynthia had to say?? Are you glad Cynthia is coming back for season 8??
