Cynthia Bailiey – Glamorous Cynthia resides in Atlanta with her 10-year old daughter, Noelle. The Alabama-born beauty moved to New York City 18 years ago to pursue her dream of modeling and her career quickly skyrocketed. Major fashion features and walking the runways in Paris and Milan Fashion Weeks led to starring in a movie opposite Sandra Bernhardt and a guest role on The Cosby Show. Cynthia’s boyfriend of three years, Peter Thomas, has issued her an ultimatum, and though Cynthia has always been independent and financially comfortable, she must come to terms with her marriage hang-ups or risk losing him for good.

She is the Managing Partner of The Parks Group, P.C., an Atlanta based boutique law firm that caters nationally to entertainers and athletes. Phaedra’s marriage to her younger husband, Apollo, is the subject of much gossip because he did a stint in prison for a “white collar crime.” She is expecting her first child with Apollo and has thrown herself into planning the perfect baby shower.
