“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Cynthia Bailey joined “Extra’s” online correspondent Hannah Kahn to discuss the new season of the hit Bravo show, even opening up about her love life since splitting with husband Peter Thomas.
Bailey is shooting her first season of the show without Thomas, admitting, “It’s weird because we came on the show together… I have to catch myself. I’m always like, ‘Oh, let me call Peter. Let me invite Peter.’ I’m like, ‘Wait a minute, I’m not with Peter anymore.’ But we’re friends, which was hugely important to me.”
Bailey also dished on her current dating life, revealing she is playing the field. She pointed out, “Well, I promised myself that when I got divorced, I would give myself a year at least to just date, and not just date one person… I’m dating a couple different guys.” One of those guys is motivational speaker Will Jones.
The reality star posted a pic of herself with Jones on social media, sending fans into a frenzy. She shared, “Things are good with Will. I actually just got off the phone with him.”
“Will is… he’s that guy. Like, if I wanted to get in a serious relationship right now, I could totally see myself with someone like Will,” she added.
“I was pretty transparent in the beginning, and I just said, ‘Listen, I want to have fun. I want to meet people, and I think you’re really nice,”Bailey clarified. “He kind of made it clear at some point that he may, you know, not be dating other people… He kind of came to that, but I was like listen, I am so flattered, but I still want to take my time.”
As for whether she would ever marry again, Bailey commented, “I keep going back and forth. I think I would. It would have to be just really the right situation and the right guy.”
Bailey also revealed what is coming up on “RHOA,” with the crew taking a trip to Barcelona later in the season. She teased, “You guys are gonna think some stuff gets physical because certain people, I won’t say any names, but we know the people in the group that can turn up the hardest.”
When asked if Kim Zolciak-Biermann will be on the trip, Bailey replied, “I can say this, her presence was definitely felt either way. She was stirring up some stuff. Remember the whole thing about the roach at NeNe’s house? All that kinda comes up during Barcelona.”
Cynthia also revealed that she “kissed a girl.” She shared, “You’ll have to watch that. Let’s just say that, you know the whole ‘lady pond’ thing and everything? Let’s just say that I’m gonna stay with Lake Bailey,” referring to her new home on a lake.
During the season, Bailey also got a tattoo, but where is it? She responded, “You’re gonna have to see on the show.”
“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” airs Sundays on Bravo.
