While on the latest episode of Wendy Williams‘Talk show, Cynthia Bailey revealed the reason her daughter came out on Real housewives from Atlanta. As you may know, Noelle identifies as sexually fluid, and Wendy had some thoughts on this revelation that Cynthia wasn’t too happy about.
It all started earlier today when Cynthia called the show to hit back the host for suggesting the 21-year-old come out RHOA just because her mother needed a more interesting story “than the happily married lady”.
Cynthia argued that ‘Noelle is not a housewife … she doesn’t have to share her life with you. The reason I really wanted Noelle to tell her story on the show is because if we don’t talk about it on the show and socialmediagossips know about it, as a reality star family, we feel like we’re hiding them. I didn’t want Noelle to feel ashamed and ashamed or to have to hide her truth. ‘
Cynthia went on to explain that she feared someone would take a picture of Noelle just “walking around with a girl holding hands” which would land on social media and cause controversy.
Instead, she wanted her daughter to be in control of her own narrative: “I wanted her to tell her own story. It wasn’t for my story. It was because she just had to get involved in the front. ‘
This comes after Noelle spoke about her sexuality on an episode of RHOA in November and told her mother how she felt.
The 21-year-old said quite simply that she likes to think about it without labels: “There are many attractive men and many attractive girls.”
At the time, Wendy Williams even praised Cynthia for her understanding and acceptance.
