One thing that fans of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" may see on season seven when it airs is Cynthia Bailey going on a road trip with Kenya Moore. On Thursday, August 7, Cynthia posted two photos of her and Kenya in the car upon arriving in Charlotte to celebrate the opening of Peter Thomas's new Sports One lounge.
The photo shows Cynthia in the driver's seat while Kenya is behind her. Both look casual and pretty, with makeup on and their hair loose around their faces. Another photo shows Cynthia smiling at the camera while Kenya gets what looks to be a mic adjusted by a production crew member.
Obviously, the two will be spending a lot of time together as they celebrate Sports One's grand opening weekend. Unfortunately for Cynthia, she received a lot of criticism from fans for being with Kenya. As fans of the show have seen, Kenya and NeNe Leakes have pretty much been enemies ever since Kenya arrived on the show in season five. Kenya has not been shy to let everyone know that she doesn't believe that NeNe is the queen bee of the Atlanta housewives and that she's gunning to take her down.
While Kenya and NeNe were battling it out, Cynthia and NeNe were very good friends, both on and off the show. Cynthia was such a good friend to NeNe that NeNe included her as a bridesmaid in her second wedding to Gregg Leakes. That all changed towards the end of season six when Cynthia took issue with NeNe calling her husband "a b***h" for getting involved in the women's affairs.
NeNe in turn took issue with Cynthia acting as if everything was okay between them for months but then being mad when it came time to film the reunion. In NeNe's eyes, Cynthia was just trying to create a storyline for herself. NeNe also didn't like how Cynthia seemed to support Kenya.
Unfortunately for Cynthia, it seems that most fans are on NeNe's side. Almost all of the comments that Cynthia received after posting the two photos were negative. People called her "messy" for all of a sudden being friends with Kenya now. Some also took Cynthia's new friendship with Kenya as proof that Cynthia is indeed a flip-flopper, as NeNe claims. Others warned Cynthia to not get close to Kenya, whom they believe is just using her and will ultimately betray her.
In an interview with MadameNoire in late July, NeNe Leakes said that her issues with Cynthia Bailey "was sorted out on season seven," which viewers will see when "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" airs this fall. It remains to be seen whether NeNe's issues with Kenya Moore was sorted out as well or if it only got worse!
