This season on Real Housewives of Atlanta, Cynthia Bailey’s daughter, Noelle Robinson, has revealed that she is taking a year away from school. Bailey has supported her daughter in this, but her daughter is still away from home a great deal. Robinson has been spending time in Charlotte, North Carolina for several reasons and the biggest one is because she has a boyfriend who lives there. In addition, Robinson says that she isn’t as recognizable in Charlotte. Plus, her father Leon Robinson and her former step-father, Peter Thomas, also resides in the area. See a photo of Robinson and her father below. There are no photos of Robinson’s boyfriend on her Instagram or current reports on their relationship status.
As for her mom Bailey, she is single but is dating specific people as well. Cynthia Bailey’s divorce from ex-husband Peter Thomas was shown on last season’s Real Housewives of Atlanta and her friendship with Robinson’s dad has also been on the show. According to People, just four months after finalizing her divorce from Thomas, Bailey posted a photo of herself with motivational speaker Will Jones on her Instagram account. But, even though Bailey has been seen with Jones, she recently made it clear to People Magazine that she is still dating other men. Bailey admitted that, “I started dating on my birthday and promised myself I would be single for a year and just date and have fun. I just came out of a divorce, and it’s hard going through a divorce. So I promised myself I would give myself some me time. I wanted to get back to Cynthia and be in that space for a while. I still got some more months to go until I’m done dating. I am having fun and I’m meeting great guys.”
In an interview with Essence, Bailey revealed that her daughter is currently completing an internship in Charlotte. Bailey said that, “She’s doing an internship with a prosthodontist. I thought it was actually a dentist. But it’s like the top of the food chain in the industry. He does cosmetic and reconstructive work. This is like her first job, per se. It’s like non-paying job … When I was 18 years old, I was living in Paris already modeling. My mom let me go and find my way, and I’m going to do the exact same thing with Noel. I’m just going to let her find her way.” Robinson has also dabbled in modeling, with the help of her mother, but Bailey insists, “Noelle is very well-rounded. She’s grown up in the business a long time. I think at the end of the day, whatever she decides to do, I’m just here to support her in any way that I can.”
When Robinson graduated from high school in June 2017, Bailey wrote the following message on Instagram to her daughter, “Loving you has been my favorite adventure so far. Thank you for being the best accomplishment of my life, and my best friend. Your journey begins now. Find your purpose & run towards it. Stay beautiful, stay strong, stay kind, and be happy. You have a wonderful life ahead of you, and remember you only get one. I am so proud and excited for you. I love you Noelle. God bless you.”
