Cynthia Bailey believes lack of friendship destroyed her marriage to Mike Hill

Cynthia Bailey thinks that her two-year marriage to Mike Hill hit bottom rock once their friendship started fading away.

The former Real Housewives of Atlanta star recently appeared on Two T’s in a Pod podcast with Tamra Judge and Teddi Mellencamp. There she talked about the real reason why she and her former spouse decided to call it quits.

On Monday’s episode, Bailey said:

“I felt like we weren’t friends anymore,”

“I felt like it was just going toward we’re just not going to be friends if we didn’t pump the brakes.”

The TV personality, 55, continued:

“This is not my first rodeo. I think friendship just has to be there in a marriage,”

“Like, love is great, but friendship has to be there. I truly want to be with my best friend.”

The couple’s divorce has yet not been finalized but none of them regrets their decision to move on in life. Bailey told the hosts that she still has a lot of respect for  Hill and still thinks of him as her husband.

Cynthia told the two Bravo stars:

“I took my ring off the day of the announcement but until then, I had it on all this time. Although, we were going through some things,”

“It’s just weird, you guys. It’s just weird.”

Hill denied cheating on Bailey during their marriage

Apart from the friendship thing, Cynthia also confessed that distance and time were contributing factors that led to the end of their happy marriage.

The TV star’s decision to move back to California to begin a new chapter with the 52-year-old sportscaster while constantly traveling back was also very damaging.

Last month, the reality star said:

“Our relationship and our marriage came with a lot of big transitions. I basically moved to a different city, a different house, started a whole new career at 55 years old. So that was all a lot of stress for me,”

“I think there was some incompatibility. We’ve always been, for the most part, in a long-distance relationship and that’s not easy.”

Bailey was the one who filed for divorce from Hill in October. The filing happened just days before their second wedding anniversary.

Fans started speculating about their split after the model-turned-actress changed her last name on Instagram. Furthermore,  she deleted most of her photos with her estranged TV personality husband.

Fans turned into two halves amid the news of their split and many believed that it was Hill’s infidelity that ended their marriage. But the reality star denied any cheating rumors and the couple together released a joint statement that read:

“LOVE is a beautiful thing. While we both will always have love for one another, we have decided to go our separate ways,”

“We are grateful that we remain good friends, and will always cherish the many memories we’ve shared together as husband and wife.”
