Cynthia Bailey’s daughter, Noelle Robinson, came out as sexually fluid on last night’s episode of “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
The mom/daughter duo were having a candid conversation about dating, when the 20-year-old told her mom that she likes both boys and girls.
“People try to box everyone in and put labels on everything, but I don’t really do that,” Noelle told Bailey. “I just like who I like, and that’s just what it is. There’s a lot of attractive guys, and there’s a lot of attractive girls.”
Noelle revealed she realized she was sexually fluid while exploring during her Freshman year at Howard University.
“It really just came out of nowhere,” she told her mom. “I wasn’t really expecting that to happen.”
Mama Bailey took the conversation in stride–clearly surprised her daughter was dating at all more than she was surprised her daughter liked both sexes.
“Since Noelle has been in college, she told me that she thought she was fluid. I just didn’t know that she was out there being fluid … flowing,” Bailey said in her confessional.
“We all love and support Noelle. It’s just new for us,” Bailey continued. “We’re just trying to get used to it.”
“I just want you to be happy, Noelle,” Bailey told her daughter. “If you meet an amazing young lady, that’s a blessing. If you meet an amazing young man, that’s a blessing. As long as they’re good people and they love and support you.”
“It makes me excited that Noelle has a safe space to share,” Bailey confessed to viewers. “Love is love.”
The 52-year-old took to Instagram to celebrate her daughter’s coming out.
Noelle posted the same photo on Instagram and received numerous supportive messages.
“Always love!!” her mom’s fiance, Mike Hill wrote on the post.
