Cynthia Bailey Hopes She Can Hug It Out With NeNe Leakes

Posted on Feb 23 2015 - 10:24am by BeachSpin


What’s a burned up friendship contract between friends?  Just when we thought that “The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s,” Cynthia Bailey and Nene Leakes pal status was nothing but ashes, Cynthia Bailey is keeping hope alive, and opens up to Hollywood Life about her optimistic desire to at least have a cordial relationship with Leakes.

 “I never really did anything to her in the first place,” she says. “I’ve never really bashed her.”

Cynthia maintains that throughout the taping of the current season, she was hopeful the two could “coexist and be cordial and respectful to each other in a working environment since we don’t have the luxury of never seeing each other.”

 “I think as grown women, we should be able to respect each there and say ‘Hello, hi I like your necklace, nice watch,’ and just keep moving.”

Cynthia remains hopeful that she and NeNe can go forward one day, and has chosen to keep a positive attitude in the meantime.

 “I feel like in my heart, one day we can get to that place where we can just hug it out and move on.  I don’t really have any ill-will toward her. I can’t do that to myself. I can’t sit here and just have all this anger for someone. It’s just not who I am. That affects my energy and my karma. I don’t choose negativity. I’m always going to choose positivity and light.”

What chance do you think that these two have for a hug and a friendly move on?

    Well I sent the cat out to clear a path so I could get to work this morning. She gave it a valiant try but returned covered in snow. LOL! JK

    Oh Cynthia. Nay-Nay doesn’t understand the meaning of the word cordial.
    Neither the adjective nor the drink. LMBO!

    • rasta

      Lol! I thought she did a good job, like a mini “cat-o-pillar”. Love cat vids.

      that is a COOL cat

  • Trippinhhard

    Oh Cynthia you are just like your messy ass husband, whom you refuse to check his mouth..
    You hired the woman Greg had an affair as your PR woman. What friendship, girl bye you acting worse than Nene… The friendship is over according to you, hence you burned that contract, so just go your own merry way…

  • Shinningstar

    Nene is too immature to be friends with so I think it’s a waste of time. I don’t understand the attachment to someone who has slandered your name and tried to get you fired. That alone would have me telling her to kick rocks.

    A cordial working relationship only needs a hi and bye. I’m not sure why she’d want to hug it out with this evil vindictive woman.

    When it comes to this franchise, Bravo is planning the spinoff already after Apollo is released from prison: “Out from Asunder.”

  • Kat

    If the two no longer like each other, there is no point in faking being nice. I don’t see the point in toruturing yourself by putting on a facade in a social setting when its clear you really don’t like or care for that person. Saying hello and keeping it moving is one thing, but carrying on a conversation with someone you prefer not to converse with is another. Just keep it cordial, hello, goodby, and move on. I do believe Cynthia wants a friendship with Nene, but Nene clearly can only like a person if she has more than them. And at this point, Nene does not like Cynthia.

  • TartLemon

    Cynthia has never bashed or said anything negative about NeNe? Must have been Cynthia’s evil twin then. I’m not liking her this season AT ALL.

    • honeybunny

      She’s been a lot more opinionated and throwing more shade this season….but imo she is just playing the game. She’s def not the Cynthia from her first season on RHOA but the producers want more drama and she’s serving it just like the rest of the ladies, except she’s a little more classy about it…jmo tho wwyd if you were given the choice of turning up the drama or being fired. In Whoresha’s case it was an epic fail.

  • RonnieIsBack

    Cynthia, please just cut your Moose track loses and move on.
    Moose is hateful and petty. As Taylor Swift says: You are NEVER EVER GETTING BACK TOGETHER…

    • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

      Okay. Nearly fell on the floor with that one Ronnie!

  • Bad Barbie

    Cynthia, Nene is nobody’s friend. Carry on.

  • rasta

    I wish Nene would choose this hairstyle and stick with it. More flattering than any of her others.

  • Orlando Chan

    No one needs a friend like ramen head Nene.
