Nobody knows yet if new “Real Housewives of Atlanta” Cynthia Bailey is a keeper in terms of reality show appeal.
But, hey, at least she’s getting married – unlike many of the existing cast mates.
Her publicist Tolu Okunowo at Good Buzz Public Relations sent out this breathless release just moments ago:
Model Cynthia Bailey, one of the newest cast members of Bravo’s hit reality television show The Real Housewives of Atlanta, will walk down the aisle tomorrow night right here in Atlanta and the wedding ceremony and reception will be filmed for the upcoming third season of the hit series. Invited guests include all the current Atlanta housewives and the other new cast member for this upcoming season; actor Leon Robinson from “The Five Heartbeats” fame; R & B star Brandon Hines and a host of other celebrities. Lucky invited wedding guests can expect a lot of surprise performances by all of the celebrities at the reception. And, of course, with NeNe, Kandi, Lisa and Sheree there, those wedding guests will probably get a little bit of drama too!
Bravo has yet to set a launch date for season three but presumably it will be sometime this fall after the D.C. version is finished.
She’s marrying Peter Thomas, owner of Uptown Restaurant and Lounge.
UPDATE@3:35 p.m. Just received a curious call from a Bravo publicist. Bravo has not “officially” confirmed that Bailey is a housewife but wanted to get a copy of the press release. Hmm…
UPDATE@3:38 p.m. The publicist who released this information just got a stern call from Bravo. He said Bailey didn’t know she wasn’t supposed to reveal this life-changing plot line, per Bravo’s contractual arrangement. He asked me to take this blog entry down more than two hours after the fact. I told him the cat was out of the bag and several Web sites have already linked to this one revealing this important news to the world. Bravo obviously doesn’t want all the story lines leaking out months before the show airs, though many often do anyway.
