Even though they had a mini Kumbaya moment on the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ reunion on Dec. 15, don’t expect Cynthia and NeNe to start having wine nights together just yet.
In case you missed the fiery reunion of Real Housewives of Atlanta, NeNe Leakes broke down in tears over her fight with Cynthia Bailey, and luckily, the ladies did hug and makeup again. However, Cynthia spoke exclusively to HollywoodLife.com and revealed that even though she missed NeNe’s friendship, it wouldn’t be easy to become BFFs again.
‘RHOA’: Cynthia & Nene’s Fight
You may remember the fight that really angered Cynthia was when NeNe called her husband a “bi-ch,” right to his face. That was followed by NeNe declaring that she didn’t want a friendship with her anymore.
“It did hurt to hear her say that,” Cynthia told HollywoodLife.com exclusively before the reunion. “I only want to be friends with NeNe if it is respectful and equal on both parties, and I feel like our relationship and friendship started to become a little one sided.”
She went on to explain that she felt like the “supportive friend” but didn’t have that support back.
“I would never call her man names even if I was mad at her but she has no problem doing that to me,” she added. “I’m not interested in being friends with someone who just doesn’t get that you can’t cross certain boundaries with someone when you’re friends with them, even when you’re pissed off!”
Cynthia Not Totally Forgiving NeNe
During the reunion, they fired back and forth at each other but ultimately decided to put the saga behind them. But does that mean they’re 100% ok? Not so fast.
“I would love to get to a point where we’d have a cordial and respectful relationship,” Cynthia told us. “I’m not interested in being BFFs again, but our relationship was good when it was good, and I’d hate if we weren’t at least cool.”
Well, it looks like they can be “cool” but not fully girlfriends again. That is, until next season. What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think they can ever become BFFs again?
