If we looked like Cynthia Bailey, we couldn’t imagine finding anything less than praiseworthy about our looks, but the 47-year-old stunner reveals that even models can get the body blues.
Despite her ageless beauty, Cynthia admits that learning to love herself unconditionally has been a process, and that she’s still working hard to accept her changing looks.
“I don’t have to apologize for being me. I’m no longer critiquing my body—I look great, back fat and all,” she reveals to Ebony(via BravoTV.com).
While she may work in a youth-obsessed industry, Cynthia says that she loves her looks even more now than when she was a younger model.
“I feel more beautiful because I’m so much wiser. My face has so much more character at this point; it shows my life lessons,”
It’s clear that she’s not the only one who appreciates her beauty — hubby Peter Thomas recently raved about his wife’s risque photos in the magazine, writing, ““My wife is HOT!! Most beautiful housewife in the Entire franchise … Most woman would love to look like this at 47.”
Cynthia says that Peter’s support has been instrumental in helping her recognize her own beauty.
“I am married to a man who is completely in love with me," says Cynthia. "I can be in long johns, and he still thinks I’m smoking hot.”
