Following her split with Mike Hill, Real Housewives of Atlanta alum Cynthia Bailey surrounds herself with her favorite girlfriends (her ex RHO and RHUGT co-stars) at this year’s BravoCon. And when Hollywood Life asked her how she was doing post-split, she said she was hanging in there.
“I’m fine, I’m fine,” she told us EXCLUSIVELY. “After [Mike and I] put out our public statement, I basically got on a plane and came here to BravoCon. So it was amazing to hang out with a bunch of crazy housewives. And I didn’t think about it at all, but I’m sure, you know, after it’s over, I’ll have my moments, but I feel really good. Mike feels good. And I’m really happy that we could move forward as friends.”
And the split wasn’t a total shock to Cynthia. She told us that their breakup had been in the works for a while. “It was a long kind of thoughtful decision. We had problems for a while and we talked about it. And you know, we’ve come up on our two-year anniversary. It just happened last week. So we were, you know, we were in discussions and we decided to … to just do it. You know, he’s been married before. I have been married before. And we always promised ourselves that if we didn’t feel like it was working, [we’d release each other],” she said.
Cynthia is obviously starting a new chapter in her life, but that doesn’t mean she’ll be returning to RHOA anytime soon. When we asked if this would be something she would be interested in, she said: “[That] comes up a lot. I get asked that question a lot…but honestly, I’m really focused on my acting. That’s where my focus is now, and that’s where I really enjoy myself. But I have to say that being here at BravoCon and being around all the housewives made me realize that I kind of miss it, you know – it’s a lot of fun. But I feel like [if it happens, it’ll] can be [be] down the road. I will never close that door. I love my Bravo family, my NBC family, and they know how to find me when I decide that I want to go in that direction.”
