Cynthia Bailey is off the market. The single mother of a college age daughter was shocked when her longtime boyfriend/fiancé Mike Hill dropped to his knee and proposed.

Lifestyle blogger Tami Reed of Talkingwithtami.com was there to witness Hill pop the question on Friday, July 26.

Hill, 46, gave Bailey, 51, a stunning 5-carat diamond ring valued at approximately $85,000. The proposal took place during the grand opening of the reality TV star's Bailey Wine Cellar at The Beacon in Atlanta.

According to Us Weekly, the 18K white gold piece features princess cut diamonds accented by baguette diamonds. The ring setting alone retails for $14,036, and the five-carat center stone is valued at $70,000.

The ring was designed by Simon G. Jewelry and was purchased at Solomon Brothers.

Bailey's daughter Noelle was there to witness her mommy say yes for the second time in her life. Bailey was previously married to Peter Thomas for six years.

Hill has two college age daughters. The couple have no plans for any more children.

    Cynthia couldn't have any more kids anyway! LOL! She had a procedure done in her womb that would absolutely prevent that. UFE...
    But Congrats to her nonetheless and I don't know who is relocating...I thought that was something of an issue before.

  • Seldomseen

    Congratulations, Cynthia has such good energy. I wish her the best

  • Karen Brady

    Congrats Cynthia. Some folks say Mike wants to hold a peach so bad.

  • Free speech cost Sheen

    Giggles at Posha last name being listed as Porscha Fox... wonder whatever happened to her

  • KLo

    Porscha Fox?

  • Renee26

    Pretty ring! Congrats to them!! ?

  • iWasteTime

    Cute Ring!

  • KLo

    I think its all for the cameras/tv. One thing for sure, when CB is not under RHOA lighting, she looks totally different https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/fdd2f276a8a69d7d3d51fbc2d162728b824774b009a7038f9a6f6e859c15f5a1.jpg

  • Guest

    Congrats Cynthia!

  • onelove

    Hill has two college age daughters. The couple have no plans for any more children.
    Yup cynthia has no more eggs in her basket!!!

  • JALC

    She looks like a praying mantis to me.

  • onelove

    and they are hanging!!!

  • onelove

    naw!! she just getting older not eating right and not working out! to busy running behind men!

  • oshh16

    After 14 months of dating is what Wendy said.....can't say if i would be comfy with that but if he has his own, and prenups are in place...

  • Carrington

    Let me guess... the cameras just happened to be there filming for the show....?

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    WHEW CHILE!!! WHO is the person between Marlon Unititty Hampton and Kandi?? https://media2.giphy.com/media/Nmgl4hEyldmAJedYUK/giphy.gif

  • hottlanta

    If she went to a hospital nursery dem babies would be allll over her.

  • Mz_Opinionated

    ? ? I didn't even NOTICE her.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    You KNOW Cynthia cant pick a man for $HIT! She may be in the closet herself https://media3.giphy.com/media/H4nXJQEN3B2D64qS1h/giphy.gif

  • teather

    Whoever watches this junk. From only seeing headlines, this relationship is fake and she's known for making bad relationship choices. so, this will end before it even begins. She has some issues she's not addressing, as do ALL of these women, Hence the show goes on.

  • MsSapphire9800

    Oh Well...I guess she will get to keep her peach now. Let's see who will make it to the alter first..Porsha or Ms Bailey!!!

  • MsSapphire9800

    Just a bad picture of her...she look alright on her blog. Also being over 35 with braces doesn't help either.

  • SpiceGirl
  • MsPam

    Good for her, now she can stop asking dude when he going to marry her.

  • Sha

    I can see him moving, he like's Bailey Island.

  • Bree

    I really hope this isn't a PR relationship. Doesn't seem real to me, I'm just on the outside looking in. I can see Cynthia with her daughter's father long term, not with this guy. I didn't see any chemistry between her and Peter, nor do I see it with her and Mike Hill.

  • Karen Brady

    The fact alone that he did this private, intimate, special thing in front of Bravo's greedy cameras. Okay.

  • MsPam

    Remember Ms.Sandra posted that she fell and knocked her teeth out?!

  • Karen Brady

    LMAAAAAO

  • Karen Brady

    Tell me how please. I'm just not overly impressed with CB as many are. She's a pretty woman but that's where it stops for me.

  • MsPam

    True, Mike looks like he’s a boring person.

  • 100milesperhour

    I hate Cynthia’s kissing scenes, or her trying to seductive, or anything to that effect. Dammit...her & her cornball man.

  • free

    A FRIEND OF THE BLOG!!! KEEP IT KEWTE LOLOL!!!

  • Renee26

    I could see the chemistry between her and Peter; I also pegged him as the user opportunist he turned out to be. Glad she wised up and moved on

  • free

    damn yall got good memories lol!

  • Dr. P

    I hate you. I really do. GATDAYUMIT I DO!

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Oh so Sandra about delete my comment shortly Eh? Chile...

  • Renee26

    I'll take Cynthia for 500 Alex

  • Dr. P

    I haychu too!

  • Karen Brady

    *FLATLINES*. Chile you may be onto something and Mike impresses me about as much as Peter did which is saying nothing.

  • Bree

    Very much so. He is chill from what meets the eye. Two boring people will never bring out the best in each other, at least I don't think so. I believe in finding your equal not just someone you have something in common with. They look bored with each other. Cynthia doesn't need to be on RHOA. She should have been a judge on ANTM or something. RHOA is so not her! She should be a friend of the show.

  • free

    marlo tits look like two hotcakes with no sausage.

  • Renee26

    ? at Keenan and his gap ?

  • Bree

    I didn't see chemistry between her and Peter. I did see lust though.

  • Dollmeshia Dee-Dee Clark

    right.....LOL! Porscha Williams (Sandra was rushing)lol

  • Dr. P
  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    ?????

  • free

    i was about to drag until i saw it was tami. she is gonna have to step her game up or, like, not read this blog until she is off the show.

  • country57

    I see a lot of commuting, he's based on the west coast. TV news sportscaster. Yep, Cynthia found a man she does not have to finance. Congrats!!!!!!

  • imright

    Cynthia is a LESBIAN, i wish she’d cut it out ?

  • AphroKween

    ANTM isn't going to pay what RHOA is paying. Why would she take a pay cut to be a friend of the show?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I think at their age once you probably feel that person meets all the basic requirements you want in a spouse, there's no need for a very long courtship or engagement period. You just move forward and begin your life together. I think 14 months is a good enough period of time to determine that.. not too long, not too short.

  • Renee26

    ? you petty... They're not that flat. Probably tear drop titties which look more natural than the big boulder sitting up type like Wendy and Cardi have...looking like ballons on their chests

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs
  • free

    ok maybe i just read it wrong. she says "blogger" Tami.

  • Renee26

    14 months is good for everyone dating. Longer than a year but not the 2yr mark... Past 2 years it's shiit or get off the pot time.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Marlo's showing all the goods, looking like she's dressed to catch a man.

  • Renee26

    She can move to where he is and he can keep his career. She can keep her agencies going long distance

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs
  • Renee26

    Marlo is always dressed to catch...that's how she gets bills paid ?

  • Renee26

    The lust stage doesn't last long; I think it was more than that. The way he looked at his queen with complete admiration when she was walking down the isle said a lot to me... Those weren't lustful tears he shed and a lot of grooms don't look at their wives like that.

    He knows he had a good woman in Cynthia and he messed up a good thing by trying to use her.

  • Coy little wink

    Kandi still can't dress...po thang ?

    Good luck with that Cynthia ?

  • Dahl

    Congrats!

  • Bree

    Either a pay cut or just get cut. I don't see a need for her on the show. She is rather boring. I'm kind of sick of the Atl Housewives. The switch ups weren't always the best. I liked when Kim, Sheree, and Phaedra were apart of the cast. Some of the women they've hired have absolutely NO substance. Kenya Moore is just good TV.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Sandra who the hell is Porsha Fox??? You know that aint Porsha last name LOL...The ladies look goodt...Where's Kenya???

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    If all she's getting is some bills paid, that's kinda weak. Wife status is generally the ultimate goal. If none of these dudes is putting a ring on it, then either they're doing something wrong, or she is.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    I have invisalign-they work more swiftly and you don’t look crazy.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld
  • CardiB’sAbs

    Lololol

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Maybe she doesn’t want to be married. Everyone doesn’t want to be tied down, particularly those that are without children and still look great.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I agree...they both know what they want and have been through divorce before....some of the happiest couple's I know got married in their late 40's or 50's...

  • HelloToni

    Naw ...They are flat. She desperately needs a lift.

  • Bree

    I get that she was beautiful when they were getting married and how overwhelming it was. If it was real love, then Peter would have fought to save his marriage. From what I remember Cynthia moved around because of Peter. Men should chase women, not vice versa. I didn't care for them being together because she was gullible. Peter was not leading her, he was more so in control.

  • AphroKween

    Maybe Sheree, Phaedra and Kenya but not Kim. Kim always acted as if she were better than the rest. Refusing to go on trips with the cast and always carried Kroy like a hand bag/prop.

  • Parent

    Damn Marlo had the tiddays out!! She looks good.

  • MsSapphire9800

    She has the ones that looks like saliva is always dripping when you eat and talk.

  • Karen Brady

    Bloop, Bloop and Bloop.

  • Dollface

    What's going on with that Tami girls mouth/teeth?

  • Tee Bullock

    cackles loudly:)

  • Karen Brady

    Second time I saw this today. Really?? That would make sense to me. Bi or full-time lesbian?

  • Karen Brady

    Upvote x 1000

  • LexGirl

    Yeah, see, I can't with y'all today!!! lmao!!

  • Karen Brady

    I love when he plays Big Papi.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    I’m not messing with you today ?

  • KneeSee

    Cynthia's probably just happy to have a man with his own money.

  • Renee26

    I don't get to watch often enough

  • xxxgracious

    Porsha Fox use to be on the radio here in Atlanta as well as a host on a few local shows.

  • Renee26

    ??? put em under her chin you say??

  • xxxgracious

    I instantly thought of R. Kelly girlfriends boobs. They look so weird to me hahaha.

  • xxxgracious

    I miss Peter messy ass lol. He made her storyline interesting.

  • Renee26

    Ion think that's her end goal... She like old yt suga daddies. They support her entire lifestyle. Now I couldn't be a hoe for em but I'd definitely be down for somebody supporting my whole lifestyle including perks like expensive gifts and trips... I'm sure it's better than coming into a job I hate to be able to provide and not having ish left over for perks etc. (The life of most independent women)

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Thanks I know who she is now.... Sandra called Porsha Williams Porsha Foxx when she tagged the photo...

  • Vegas1989

    Peter always had something going on....And it was for real and not scripted....LOL....

  • Hunni24

    probably in rehab!

  • AphroKween

    You all are savage on this fine blog today.............

  • AphroKween

    Ok girl!!!! You see after she divorces him she is able to invest in her businesses.

  • Leigh Burton

    If that man wasn't rich, then Cynthia wouldn't have been engaged to him!

  • Alicia.Ashe

    These weaves and hairline ? my lord they couldn’t look better than this?!?!?

  • currvalicious

    I'm just here to talk about that tacky wig on Cynthia's head. Please take it off. A little pixie would've been delightful on her. Even if it were a pixie wig. Anything would've been better than that long, heavy, repunzal hair.

  • Dowoop

    She needs to put them back in.

  • Dowoop

    Even lesbian like dick.

  • Raquel

    It won't last. They never do. It's all for TV folks!

  • Raquel

    Or, beaver tails. lol

  • Hazel

    I guess 'that girl' on the left has no name ....LMAO.

  • Hazel

    I'm guessing they'll break up within a year because 1) it's bicoastal, and 2) the petty jealousy between the daughters will force them to take sides.....#blendedfamiliesrarelywork

  • Logan Roberts

    Cynthia looks like lottery winner Marie Holmes.

  • T3

    You know AuntTEA plays ALL day lol I was like, come on San lol

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Good for Cynthia after that mess of a man, Peter!

    “Pictured L-R: Guest and Real Housewives of Atlanta cast members Porsha Fox, Kandi Burruss, blogger Tami Reed, and Marlo Hampton at the wine cellar opening.”

    So you don’t see Yovanna on the far left? Apparently everybody knows her! LOL she’s “dat bish” from CAU ?

  • HoneyHitchcock

    Waiting for Nene to come through with jokes about the price of the ring.

  • Kay J

    Let's hope this boast het storyline next season because everyone knows she is very boring each and EVERY season- brings absolutely nothing to the cast and is a sleepfest!

  • ThisIsWhat43LooksLike

    Nor does she have a uterus ?????

  • JayBird

    Todd and Kandi are still going strong and they have a blended family.

  • SJ

    So?

  • Hazel

    Because there's no balance of POWER/MONEY in that marriage. Kandi rules the house, everyone else falls in line. Only Riley has the guts to call her out. Todd and his daughter wouldn't DARE cross Kandi; but I'm guessing there is MAJOR resentment behind them there walls lol. I bet Todd's daughter ain't rollin in a Porsche...or going to a private (albeit useless) private school.

  • Hazel

    Love Solomon Brothers. Got my ring and studs there, and decades later they look like new.

  • Hazel

    That's takin me waaaaay back! Can't remember what happened to her after her house burned down...and don't care enough to google it.????

  • Eileen

    ouch and yeah you right!

  • Eileen

    and whats wrong with that? BW need to practise hypergamy more often! enough with the struggle love!

  • Eileen

    and she is smart for that! More BW should do it and stop setteling and building boo bums!

  • 305MOM E

    In that pic she does!

  • Wreckognize Game

    I saw the cutest beavers at the zoo this weekend so this was right on point?

  • Karen Brady

    Todd ain't letting that purse go. But I think they really are happy.

  • Bree

    Kim brought something to the show many of them didn't and that was drama and fun with Nene. None of them are like that. Kandi could have been a beast had she stood up to Marlo like she stood up to Nene and Kim at one point.

  • country57

    Exactly!!! Plus her home is fully paid for.

  • country57

    Yep, she receives over a $1.5 million doing this show. House is paid for. Stay put Cynthia a few more years. She'll be 60 in a few years.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    I think she is full time but too ashamed to come out! Like Mimi Faust used to be...

  • IamAllnatural

    Yovanna is a crazy drunk.

  • IamAllnatural

    I saw Todd’s daughter working at OLG restaurant. At least she is learning to be responsible. Riley is just like her mom and grandma, as real as they come.

  • IamAllnatural

    I don’t see the point in getting married at their age and living in different cities. Cynthia is too independent but don’t like to be alone. She’ll be tired of him real soon.

  • dru and neil

    Cynthia brings class to the cast to be honest. She’s even tempered and sensible. Not everyone can be ghetto and loud all day, somebody needs to balance sh-t out.

  • dru and neil

    I noticed that too. Cynthia is one hell of a good looking women but that wig got to go.

  • dru and neil

    I don’t see a problem, he’s a provider. If she were white nobody would have anything to say. Only black women got to be in financial struggle relationships I guess.

  • dru and neil

    This would be a good opportunity for Nene to bury the hatchet and congratulate her old friend if she were more mature.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Most definitely!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Does ANYBODY take their vows seriously??? 3 times ?? What a joke!

  • PrettyNetty28

    "Too independent but don't like to be alone ". Like that.

  • PrettyNetty28

    "Too independent but don't like to be alone ". Like that.

  • Tammie Reed

    I didnt know she jumped in my picture till after I looked at it later, I hate when people do that too! I still don't know who she is lol.

  • Tammie Reed

    If you must know, I had a mouth injury and knocked my teeth out so I was wearing braces, but they are off now!

  • Hazel

    Nothing wrong with hard work. It's the low expectations that'll keep you broke...sounds like she's free labor to me. I wonder if kandi would let Riley spend her time working there at kayla's(?) age, or if she would make sure riley was college educated and earning a salary, not a wage?

  • currvalicious

    Goodness knows she's paid her dues. Dealing w/Peter & his bogus businesses. 'Ol con artist asz.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Bahahaha ? She definitely made sure she was pictured with you all.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    OMG I think I am the same way! I Love my independence but hate being by myself. I sure hope she moves with him instead of having those stupid long distance relationship that Kenya and her husband has.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    I heard she got fired and replaced.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Wait I heard they made her a housewife after they fired Cynthia and Ronnie's wife. I forget her name.

  • Tammie Reed

    When did getting your "teeth fixed" become a bad thing, no matter what age? People tickle me but carry on! Just FYI though, I got them removed yesterday morning, praise God! xoxo

  • primadutch

    All I see are titties and teeth...and not in a good way, either...

  • Karen Brady

    It didn't and these comments are awful. I recently wore real braces (not invisaligns) for 18 months with rubber bands for most of it at a 'more mature' age too. I do not regret it whle wearing them and the results are fab. Congrats! When I went for my consultation there was a 76 year old man there getting a tightening so BLOOP!

  • Karen Brady

    And he of her I'm sure. I agree. Why marry?

  • Jordan’s Memory

    She real spoiled! That girl is a certified brat! She even talks like a baby.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    I honestly think Todd had no relationship with his daughter, I think he only brought her around because he was on the show and it was a good look for him. Anyone can tell that girl was not being taken care of she looks very poor and still does. I know she is hella Jealous of the way riley lives.

  • Tammie Reed

    I think she is going to be on the new season but I never met her before or seen her out till this event.

  • Tammie Reed

    chile!

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Well I am NOT looking forward to it because the little bit we have seen of her on the show she was a mess!!! A drunken mess! come to think of it, they replacing one drunk with another but atleast Ronnie's wife was likable. smdh

  • Coco17

    Tammie dont worry about the haters and internet bullies behind a keyboard smh. Keep doing your thing lady. These folks don't know you. ??????????

  • Mz_Opinionated

    Shamari DeVoe

  • Mz_Opinionated

    Well, you went from sounding sensible to rude. She looks poor? Smh...I'm not even going to say anymore.

  • Maxx

    Yeah trying to land her some $$$$ while she is out & about at the event...looking for that next victim, I'm sure.

  • dazja

    What did Cynthia do to her face?

  • https://www.thewhatsup.org Hair Lova ???

    They fired Shamari!! Why? I liked her. Argh

  • Hazel

    If she did, her wine spot will go under IMMEDIATELY. The girl cleary has no business sense. The only way that place would turn a profit is through exposure from the show. Same with OLG....I live 10 minutes away, pass it daily, and never been, but I've heard the food is completely overrated and overpriced....in Camp creek chargin prices like they on Rodeo.

  • Tammie Reed

    Not worried one bit but people can be simple af!

  • Tammie Reed

    Yes I had a mouth injury as a result had to wear temporary braces, people are crazy n petty in the Internet knowing good n well they wouldn’t say a word to me in public!

  • Tammie Reed

    Lol

  • SpeshalGift

    Solomon Brothers have beautiful rings....Thats all I got lol

  • Passion

    Wow, Cynthia looks totally different, OMG I never thought she would mess with her face, what a big big mistake!

  • Passion

    Definitely a short term situation.

  • Passion

    ?? all of that ??

  • Baddie_Love

    Congrats to Cynthia.....and wtf does Marlo have on? Not for that event boo

  • Readytochokemothernature

    Good for her.
