Cynthia Bailey shot down rumors that she was pregnant, and revealed she was suffering from a medical condition, and now in a new interview with RadarOnline, Cynthia opens up about her health.Â â€œI can’t say a whole lot about it â€¦â€ Cynthia tells Radar. â€œBut I am dealing with a medical situation. I will be having a surgery and rectifying the [situation]. That will play outÂ on the show.â€ Cynthia wanted to share her condition on the show so she can build awareness for her illness.
â€œAs part of the journey I am going through with that, I decided I did wanted toÂ share it with the worldÂ because I felt like there is a lot of education in this process that I am going to be going through,â€ she said. â€œI decided to take you guys on this journey with me because I really didnâ€™t know a lot about it. And then once you find out something, people arenâ€™t always diligent about getting to the doctor and really figuring out what I need to do or just being overall healthy people in general.â€
â€œIt has really just changed my life and how I look at my health,â€ she explains. â€œIâ€™m in my forties. I really have to take care of myself. I have to make sure I make those yearly visits to the doctor and just get checked out. Iâ€™m so busy that time just goes and Iâ€™m like, â€˜Oh my god. I havenâ€™t gone.â€™ But itâ€™s super important.â€
â€œI really want to be somewhat of a health advocate for â€˜Hey, take care of yourself.â€™ Itâ€™s great to be successful and do all these great things, but I canâ€™t be a role model if Iâ€™m not healthy, if Iâ€™m not alive,” Cynthia continues.Â â€œThe more information I got about it once I did go to the doctor and really saw the rewards, how good I was going to feel from dealing with it, and how many women actually deal with this condition, I felt it just would be powerful to relay that information out there. Over three or four million people watch our show. And even they love the drama, but I think itâ€™s great when they can actually get some education out of it as well.â€
