Cynthia Bailey tied the knot with Mike Hill over the weekend, but according to an in-the-know source, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s happy day crashed when she learned that Bravo would not be filming the posh event.
As reported, the couple wed on Saturday, celebrating at the Governors Towne Club in Acworth, Georgia, with 250 guests. Fans expected to witness the ritzy celebration on the next season of RHOA—but in an unexpected twist, Bravo cameras did not capture the nuptials.
Network execs told MTO News that filming the wedding was too risky, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The large guest list put the bash at risk for becoming a super-spreader event, creating a risk factor for production.
The bride was reportedly informed that Bravo was backing out at the last minute—and was “devastated” to learn that her wedding wouldn’t be featured on the upcoming RHOA season.
An exclusive insider spoke exclusively to AllAboutTheTea.com, spilling more tea about Cynthia’s reaction to Bravo’s surprise reversal.
“Cynthia cried and cried and cried. She BEGGED Bravo to film the wedding,” dished our snitch. “She’s afraid that she won’t be asked back for next season, because this was her only storyline.”
Do you believe that Bravo’s back-out will change Cynthia’s RHOA star status?
