I’m really trying to figure out what could be possibly wrong with Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey. Reports recently came out that Cynthia was pregnant but she quickly killed the rumors telling the public that the reason she has been looking pregnant was because she’s currently having medical issues.
On her recent weight gain:
“I can say a whole lot about it …But I am dealing with a medical situation. I will be having a surgery and rectifying the [situation]. That will play out on the show.”
On why she’s revealing her medical situation to viewers:
“As part of the journey I am going through with that, I decided I did wanted to share it with the world because I felt like there is a lot of education in this process that I am going to be going through. I decided to take you guys on this journey with me because I really didn’t know a lot about it. And then once you find out something, people aren’t always diligent about getting to the doctor and really figuring out what I need to do or just being overall healthy people in general.”
On how the medical situation changed her life:
It has really just changed my life and how I look at my health. I’m in my forties. I really have to take care of myself. I have to make sure I make those yearly visits to the doctor and just get checked out. I’m so busy that time just goes and I’m like, ‘Oh my god. I haven’t gone.’ But it’s super important.
The more information I got about it once I did go to the doctor and really saw the rewards, how good I was going to feel from dealing with it, and how many women actually deal with this condition, I felt it just would be powerful to relay that information out there. Over three or four million people watch our show. And even they love the drama, but I think it’s great when they can actually get some education out of it as well.”
