Cynthia Bailey is truly the exemplification of a brown noser. Despite all of the tall nonsense that went on during the last season of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” Cynthia somehow thinks Marlo Hampton would be the perfect replacement for Sheree on the show’s next season. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she said:
“I think Marlo is definitely very entertaining for the show. I like shooting with her just in terms of Marlo as a cast mate. Whenever she’s in the equation, things always take a different turn than what they thought it was going to be. So, Marlo would be really, really great to throw into the mix and see what’s going to happen. Things usually are always a little different when she is around. I can honestly say that South Africa would not have been the same if Marlo Hampton had not come on that trip.”
Um yes, there wouldn’t have been an altercation with Sheree, no one would have been making it rain in the club, and there wouldn’t have been Manolos on the grassland. What are we missing? Is Cynthia forgetting how annoyed she was at Marlo’s constant obsession with designer labels? The Hollywood Reporter also asked Cynthia if she was really jealous of Nene and Marlo’s relationship like most people suspect. Of course, she says that’s not the case at all.
“I am so absolutely fine with NeNe and Marlo’s relationship,” Cynthia said. “I think it’s great. Marlo and I are two different people. My relationship with NeNe is very different from hers. They do their thing; Nene and I do our thing. NeNe and I both have different friends.
“I’m fine with NeNe being friends with anyone. The friend contract never said you couldn’t have other friends,” she said referring to the controversial prank document that caused a lot of drama on the show.
As far as saying goodbye to a small, Cynthia’s not too bent out of shape over Sheree leaving.
“As a cast mate, I wish her well. We were never really friends, but I wish her well in her new endeavors.”
If it weren’t for Cynthia’s instigating ways, I’d be asking why they keep her on the show but seeing her run behind Nene and Marlo could be entertaining.
