“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Cynthia Bailey shared her health struggles on the show this season, as she revealed that she was struggling with fibroids. On the show, she shared her surgery and her recovery, but it sounds like she is not the only one who has had this issue. According to a new Radar Online report published on Dec. 3, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Cynthia Bailey is now revealing that many of the women had the same procedure done as her, even though she was the only one who shared her journey.
On Sunday night’s “Watch What Happens Live,” Cynthia revealed, “Kandi had fibroids, Porsha, and also Kenya. Kenya had really bad fibroids. She’s still suffering with them now.”
Cohen commented, “It’s like the real fibroids of Atlanta!” And it sounds like she has no problem sharing her journey on the show, especially since so many women may be looking for a role model or general information about it.
“It’s been about six months now,” Cynthia said. “Best thing I ever did on the show because I got SO much response. I’m so glad I did it on television because so many people suffer from fibroids and people just don’t really talk about it.” And even though her husband, Peter Thomas, didn't seem too supportive of her, she does say that he has changed his mind. “I know Peter did seem a little unsympathetic but you guys only see snippets of the whole thing. That operation, that procedure took a long time and Peter never left my side. He was great," she added.
Are you surprised the other ladies also struggled with fibroids?
