AceShowbiz - Cynthia Bailey received a surprising confession from her daughter, Noelle Robinson, when she came to pick her up from college. In the Sunday, November 10 episode of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta", Noelle came out of the closet and admitted to being sexually fluid.
During their ride home, Cynthia started asking about her daughter's love life as she noted that she saw a lot of "cute guys" when she helped Noelle move in. In response, Noelle said, "I definitely ended up meeting a couple of girls that I thought were cool in a romantic aspect." This prompted the 52-year-old star to further ask, "So you like guys and girls?"
"People like to try and box everybody in and put labels everything, but I don't really do that," Noelle told her mom. "There's a lot of attractive guys and there's a lot of attractive girls. It really just came out of nowhere a little bit. I just wasn't really expecting that to happen."
Fortunately for Noelle, Cynthia was fully supportive of her sexuality as she told her that she just wants her daughter "to be happy." She added, "If you meet an amazing young lady, that's a blessing. If you meet an amazing young man, that's a blessing as long as they're good people and they love and support you."
Cynthia elaborated on her support in a confessional, admitting to being surprised at first because she didn't know it at all. "We all love and support Noelle. It's just new for us. So we're just trying to get used to it. It makes me excited that Noelle feels like she has a safe space to share," she added. "With World Pride right around the corner, I think this is the perfect time for me and Noelle to show out and celebrate because love is love."
Fans have since praised Cynthia for being supportive of Noelle's coming out. "This conversation between Noelle and Cynthia is so dope. She is so supportive of her daughter living her truth," one said, as another noted, "So glad that Noelle felt comfortable talking to [Cynthia] about her romantic interests. And I'm glad that Cynthia could roll with it so well and show her daughter support." There was also one who said, "I'm so happy for Cynthia and accepting Noelle's sexual identity."
