Some people may believe that NeNe Leakes' departure from "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" would spell disaster for the show but Cynthia Bailey isn't one of them. In an interview with Sister 2 Sister magazine, posted on Thursday, July 10, Cynthia said that what makes the show appealing to so many people is its ensemble cast rather than any one person.
Cynthia believes that the show will continue to be successful even if some of her co-stars decide to leave. She pointed that the show is and has always been about an ensemble cast, with each housewife bringing something different to the mix. She believes that it's the ensemble cast that draws viewers in.
As for what she brings to the mix, Cynthia believes that it's class and grace. She said that while she can't speak for her co-stars NeNe Leakes, Porsha Williams, Kenya Moore, Phaedra Parks, and Kandi Burruss, she appreciates the opportunity to show grace, class, integrity and positivity to viewers. She also made sure to mention that most of the cast are professional women with their own businesses and so serve as positive role models to young women.
Yet what about the fact that the sixth season of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" featured violence not just once but twice? First, there was the fight between Phaedra's husband, Apollo Nida, and Kenya's friend, Brandon DeShazer, at a pajama party. Then there was Porsha Williams' attack on Kenya Moore during the reunion special.
In regards to the violence, Cynthia said that it was unfortunate but believes that everyone has learned from their mistakes and won't let fights happen again. She sincerely believes that people don't watch the Atlanta housewives because of the violence.
Unfortunately for Cynthia Bailey, it looks as if she'll have to deal with NeNe Leakes for at least one more season. NeNe recently tweeted that all the rumors that she quit or was fired from the show are "BULLS**T."
