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.

After much back and forth, Cynthia, her husband Peter and her daughter Noelle are settling into life as a family, on and off camera. Although, according to Cynthia, there is still a rift between Peter and her sister Mal, everyone will just have to figure it out.
“My sister is always going to be my sister, but I’m married now. I just think there was a point with Mal where there’s sister love and then there’s just now you’re really crossing the line and now you’re being a problem,” Bailey told The Hollywood Reporter of sibling battles. “So once you are just wrong — sister, brother, cousin, niece or nephew — you’re just wrong. It just became a point where Mal just needed to back down a little bit. This is my life, this is my relationship, this is my marriage and I really don’t need anybody’s approval.”
