Cynthia Bailey Reveals Strained Friendship With NeNe Leakes


Cynthia Bailey and NeNe Leakes have been BFFs for as long as we remember, but in a new interview with RadarOnline, Cynthia admits her friendship with NeNe has a hiccup in the new season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. “We do go through some things this season,” Cynthias reveals. “We don’t agree on a couple different things and some other things happen that kind of cause some tension in our relationship.”

“I’m still very close to NeNe. She’s someone that I have a great relationship with on the show and also off the show, and she’s definitely still my bestie,” she says.

But Cynthia is confident she and Nene can move past any problems that occurred while filming RHOA. She added, “Real friends work through stuff even if it’s uncomfortable.”

Cynthia also reveals she has some problems with Porsha Stewart this season. “Porsha, even though she is in her thirties, she just acts a little younger,” Cynthia tells Radar. “I like to have fun, but I’m busy [and] as much as I want to go and just hang out, I’m just pretty busy.”

“I kind of miss her a little bit on that,” she explained. “She’s finding herself. I’m trying to keep myself together, so we’re just not on the same page right now in terms of that.”

“I definitely did connect with Kandi [Burruss] on a certain level,” she said. “We both have young daughters. We were both kind of single parents with our young daughters for a while. Her mom is super protective. My mom is super protective.” Cynthia explains she relates to the drama Kandi dealt with while planning her wedding to Todd Tucker. “I totally connect on what she’s dealing with: the tensions going on with her family with regards to marrying Todd,” she said. “That was like my life three years ago almost. Just a little different, but same type of story.” She added, “Kandi and I definitely have a lot in common, so I definitely see our relationship evolving.”

And as for controversial Kenya Moore? “When she first started coming around, she just kind of rubbed people the wrong way, [but] she’s making some better choices this season. She’s making an effort to try to be less dramatic, so we definitely connect,” Cynthia admitted.
