‘That Ship Has Sailed:’ Cynthia Bailey Plans To Get Close To Other Co-Stars Now That Friendship With NeNe Is Over
Over the course of season six, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” fans witnessed the bond between co-stars Cynthia Bailey and NeNe Leakes slowly deteriorate. Now that their friendship is over, Cynthia says she’ll have an easier time getting closer to some of the other women on the cast.
“Now that relationship is over, I’m looking forward to new beginnings,” the supermodel told Bravo. “I’ve never gotten that close to the other girls on the show, and now that I’m not best buds with NeNe, some of the other ladies will be more open and I’ll be more open to getting to know them.
Though she’s looking forward to new beginnings, Cynthia admits that the breaking down of her friendship with NeNe was one of her lowest points of season six. While the Bailey Agency Founder says they’ve been “solid for four years,” she doesn’t believe that they’ll be able to reconcile.
“I don’t think so. I don’t think I did anything wrong. That would mean she has to apologize and figure out a way to make it right. And she’s not big on apologizing. That’s not her favorite thing to do. I’m not going to hold my breath. I’m assuming it’s done. That ship has sailed.”
Despite their friendship being over, Cynthia says it doesn’t take away from the fond memories she shared with NeNe.
“We had a lot of good times, too many to say. I loved being in her wedding, watching her and Gregg getting back together. Her wedding was so beautiful. That was a good time. There were a lot — we’ve been through a lot.”
Who knows, maybe one day these two will find a way to move past this misunderstanding and salvage their friendship.
