Bursting onto the fashion scene in the early 1990s, Cynthia Bailey has given us two gorgeous ESSENCE magazine covers, a film and her life as a cast member on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta." Now as we prepare to see Mrs. Peter Thomas at the ESSENCE Empowerment Experience on July 6-8 in New Orleans, let's take a look back at Cynthia's career.
Are you ready for the ESSENCE Empowerment Experience? Don't forget to get your tickets!
In 2010, Cynthia joined Bravo’s highly popular “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” reality show, chronicling her friendship with NeNe Leakes and relationship with Peter Thomas. She and Leakes have a tumultuous relationship and many viewers think that maybe Cynthia is too close to her co-star to allow her own personality to shine through, but Cynthia is unfazed.
Here she is with NeNe during the 2011 Soul Train Awards in Atlanta in November 2011.
