Cynthia Bailey Relieved Her Daughter Likes Boys


Not only is Cynthia Bailey dealing with her health issues on this season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, but her daughter, Noelle, who is 14 years-old, is becoming a teenager. Cynthia dished to RadarOnline she is relieved that her daughter likes boys, unlike some of her young friends. “Noelle just started high school and she likes boys and boys like her, which is totally expected and normal,” Cynthia said. “It’s interesting because she has girlfriends who like girls, so I’m like, ‘Alrighty then.’ There’s nothing wrong with that, but on the flip side, I’m like, ‘Are you ready to like boys?’

“Okay, at least it is boys that you like. At least I’m not having to deal with the fact that you like girls,” Cynthia joked. “It’s a lot raising a teenager in this day in time. When I started to be curious when I entered high school, my mom was not the kind of mom [who was] like, ‘Honey, just tell me everything. Let’s be best friends.’ I never had any of that.”

“I just kind of was feeling what I was feeling,” she explained. “I snuck around. My mom said I couldn’t go, so I figured out a way to go.” Adding, “I don’t really want Noelle to go through those things.”

“My teenager is like, ‘My friend Arthur who is a boy, we want to go the movies. Can you take us?’” Cynthia said. “So Peter and I actually kind of have fun doing our date night double dating with Noelle and her friend that’s a boy.”

“I may get a lot of flack from some moms who may think, ‘She’s too young or what are you doing?’” Cynthia said. “But on the other hand, a lot of mothers are going to love the fact that my only goal is that I make sure I know what’s going on with Noelle.”

“I’m not into her going to somebody else’s house and sneaking around,” she explained. “When you put [them] in an environment where they feel like they can come to you and talk to you, it takes all the sensationalism out of even having a boyfriend.”
