RHOA Reality Star Cynthia Bailey Covers Rolling Out & Sets the Record Straight

By  |  0 Comments

Real House Wives Of Atlanta reality star Cynthia Bailey is covering the latest edition of Rolling Out Magazine. Inside, Cynthia speaks on being vulnerable, looking good at 45 and feeling good about the future. Below is an excerpt and some highlights.

There was a moment — a clearly unforgettable one — when it all began to make sense. For two-plus seasons I casually observed Cynthia Bailey as a cast member of Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” and there was just something about her that I couldn’t quite come to terms with. It wasn’t a dislike of any kind … it was more like one of those grammar school equations of the “which one doesn’t fit” variety. For whatever reason, whenever I saw her on screen, or heard her name brought up in casual conversation, that same feeling would return…

On being vulnerable:

In photo shoots, I can give you vulnerable all day But I can’t afford to be vulnerable in my every day life. That’s just not who I am. I’ve had to be independent ever since I moved from Alabama to New York right out of high school. Being on your own at age 18 will teach you very quickly that you have to keep your emotions in check and always stay in control. That’s probably why I can be such a control freak at times  —  because I’ve had to do everything on my own for such a long time.

On looking good at 45:

I’m proud to be 45. I think that I look good to be this age, and I hope that I can encourage other women to own their age as well. You can look good in your forties … I just want more women to believe that.”

On feeling good about the future:

I’m so excited about the future. I feel like there’s so much more for me to accomplish. I’m so thankful to be where I am today — especially after experiencing so many highs and lows along the way. But I’m in a good place now, and I can honestly say that I have never been happier. Sometimes, I just want to freeze time and live in this moment … but I know that there are so many other things left to accomplish. And trust me, they will get done.”
