Cynthia Bailey is an American model and reality television personality best known as one of the cast members of the reality show The Real Housewives of Atlanta, since 2010.
Cynthia resides in Atlanta with her 10-year old daughter, Noelle. The Alabama-born beauty moved to New York City 18 years ago to pursue her dream of modeling with nothing more that a high school Homecoming Queen crown and a few beauty pageants under her belt.
Her very first booking was the cover of Essence, but that was only the beginning. From major fashion features to the runways in Paris and Milan Fashion Weeks and from staring in a movie opposite Sandra Bernhardt to a guest role on The Cosby Show, Cynthia has had an enviable career path.
Cynthia joined the Housewives at a pivotal time in her relationship with her boyfriend of three years, Peter Thomas. He issued her an ultimatum, and though Cynthia has always been independent and financially comfortable, she must come to terms with her marriage hang-ups or risk losing him for good.
Already a close friend of NeNe's, their friendship deepens as together they struggle through relationship issues with the men in their lives.
