Cynthia Bailey Assures ‘I Do Not Have Low Self-Esteem’ After Daughter Noelle Slams Her Marriage

On The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Cynthia Bailey is going through a rough time.

Divorce is a messy business, but it’s not like she wasn’t warned. Remember when her mother and sister, Malorie, tried to hide the wedding certificate so that she couldn’t go through with it? Of course you do, loyal RHOA fans. But we all saw this coming before she walked down the aisle. This marriage was doomed from the start.

In her blog, Cynthia talks about the hardships of maintaining a friendship in divorce. How can she keep Peter in her life when she’s legally getting rid of him? (Bigger question, why would she want to?)

“The hardest part of this process for me has been trying to maintain a friendship and mutual respect for each other. We were friends before we were husband and wife. I just don’t want to lose that.”

In all seriousness, there’s the fact that Peter was a second dad to Cynthia’s daughter, Noelle. But it seems even Noelle was ready for this marriage to end long before Cynthia and Peter. She confronted her mom on the latest episode, calling out her pattern of behavior. Cynthia broke down when Noelle questioned her self-esteem.

“I do not have low self-esteem. I was really caught off guard when my daughter Noelle asked me if I did. I always try to teach her by example and be a good role model.”

Noelle was tired of hearing Cynthia and Peter have the same repetitive arguments. She wondered why Cynthia put up with the broken relationship for so long.

“It hurt me to hear her even have to question whether or not I had low self-esteem! My whole life I have always tried to represent confidence, strength, and fearlessness. Especially where my daughter is concerned!”

Cynthia has always tried to teach Noelle to be strong and independent. But what kind of example has she been setting?

“I raised her to be an independent thinker and never to settle for less than what she wants and what feels she deserves. I broke down because I felt like I had failed her. And myself.”

So, what’s your take on the divorce? Is Cynthia doing the right thing or should she have left Peter sooner?
