Cynthia Bailey is now giving the scoop on what really led to her divorce from Mike Hill after just two years of marriage.
The former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star sat down with Tamra Judge and Teddi Mellencamp on their “Two T’s in a Pod” podcast and shared that she lost her “friendship” with Mike during their marriage.
I felt like we weren’t friends anymore.
I felt like it was just going toward we’re just not going to be friends if we didn’t pump the brakes.
This is not my first rodeo.
I think friendship just has to be there in a marriage.
Like, love is great, but friendship has to be there.
I truly want to be with my best friend.
This is an interesting revelation considering the fact that both Cynthia Bailey and Mike Hill make sure to mention their “friendship” in their divorce statements.
Cynthia said she was “so grateful for our continued friendship” and Mike said, “our friendship remains rock solid.”
Cynthia Bailey’s Divorce Statement
God does not make mistakes! I truly believe in my heart Mike coming into my life was destiny. I jumped in, both feet first and gave it my all.
Although that journey has come to an end. I am so grateful for our continued friendship, and the beautiful memories that we made together.
God willing, I will find love again. Whatever is destined to be, will be; and I could not be more excited for my next chapter!
I pray my friends, family, and fans will continue to be along for the ride with me in this awesome thing we call ‘life!’ Thank you for your continued prayers, support, and well wishes.
Mike Hill’s Divorce Statement
I love Cynthia and will always love her because she is a phenomenal woman and a beautiful person.
Even though our relationship is ending, our friendship remains rock solid and for that I am grateful.
Honestly, we’ve been thinking about going our separate ways for the last few months, so it was good for us both to have that time to process it all privately and I can smile knowing she’ll always be there for me as I will be for her.
Maybe they were just being politically correct.
The model and reality TV star also shared that her divorce from Mike is “not final” and that he still “feels like” he’s her husband.
“I took my ring off the day of the announcement but until then, I had it on all this time. Although, we were going through some things. It’s just weird, you guys. It’s just weird.”
Either way, I wish both Cynthia Bailey and Mike Hill the very best as they move forward.
