While the last season of Real Housewives of Atlanta seemed to center around her wedding, Cynthia Bailey certainly had a few high-profiles loves before she got to the altar. This month in Sister2Sister, the model turned reality TV star dished about the men in her past, giving details on each one.
On Russell Simmons:
“There’s two Russells: There was Russell that we knew 25 years ago and there is the new, vegan, yoga Russell. I think more than anything he was just persistent, like, borderline stalking at that point because he would just not take no for an answer. He wasn’t my type, you know. He was still wearing the paisley wool shirts and the jeans and he was sending flowers and every second was like, ‘Please, please, please, please,’ she admits. “But I was like, ‘Alright, if I just go to lunch with you, will you stop sending me flowers?’”
On former NBA star Jayson Williams:
“He proposed to me at halftime at a New Jersey Nets basketball game . . . I just have to say, Jayson Williams was just the sweetest guy. You know the whole thing that happened with his sister (she contracted AIDS); that’s why he was so tortured.”
And on her daughter’s father, Leon Robinson:
“I met Leon at a BET event. He was with Bob Johnson and I was with some girlfriends doing girls’ night out in New York City. And he was just one of those people that I just knew if I ever met him, he was just gonna get it.”
While Cynthia’s relationships may have been high profile, reminiscing is something every woman does. Whether we want to go back or kick ourselves for the thought, it happens. Ever woman has a right to talk about her exes freely, but can talking about your past loves alienate your current love?
