Cynthia Bailey of Real Housewives Of Atlanta not only exudes beauty but she is also the brains behind The Bailey Agency School Of Fashion. On May 3, 2014 Essence graced Chicago with their presence with the Road to 20th Essence Festival and brought along a host of spectacular celebrities, Ear Hustle 411 had the opportunity to talk with Cynthia Bailey who struck up a compelling conversation.
Cynthia was not only approachable but very warm and forthcoming; she talked about The Bailey Agency, Real Housewives of Atlanta, her friendship with NeNe Leakes and personal goals for herself. Check out what she had to say to EarHustle411.
Cynthia you look beautiful as usual, Ear Hustle 411 wants to know why you are here at the Road to Essence festival?
I am here hosting the fashion show segment for Essence; this is the second city, the first one we did was in Atlanta. I was not able to attend the one in Atlanta due doing a model search in Miami with the Bailey Agency. I have such an amazing history with Essence magazine, I have been on the cover twice and I have a great relationship with Walmart; So when they call, I always come out and support.
We know you are a model, how is the Bailey Agency doing?
I am so glad that you asked. The Bailey Agency is doing great. We are about to celebrate four years of being open and I am thinking about opening a Bailey Agency here in Chicago. I have a lot of interest in Chicago. Miami is very interested in me opening up a school there as well. I was there last week doing a model search. I have a pageant coming up in June and my Cynthia Bailey search is coming back in June also. You can find more information at Thebaileyagencyschooloffashion.com
We know that relationships are important to you and our viewers, our readers want to know, do you think that your relationship with NeNe can be mended?
I am always optimistic. NeNe was my girl; this was someone that I talked to 10-15 times a day. That love will always be there and you can’t stop loving folks because you don’t talk to them anymore. I am always coming from a place of love, light and positivity.
What are you looking forward to for next season on Real Housewives of Atlanta?
I want to first thank everyone for supporting the show. We are #1 on Bravo. A Lot of people don’t realize that RHOA is the #1 show of all of Bravo shows. I look forward to evolving and growing more. This show has taught me so much about myself that I did not know and it has been a great platform, journey and I am looking for it to be bigger and better.
EarHustle 411 would like to thank Cynthia Bailey for sharing herself and her time with us and we would also like to thank Mary Datcher of Windy City Word for “keeping her ears to the streets” and giving us a heads up on this wonderful event!
