We’ve literally watched Cynthia Bailey’s daughter Noelle Robinson grow up on out television sets over the past eight seasons of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Now in its 10th season, the recent high school graduate is helping her mom settle into her new home and pursue her own career interests.
“She’s doing an internship with an prosthodontist,” Bailey told ESSENCE about her daughter with actor, Leon. “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.”
Adding, “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.”
Speaking of modeling, Bailey kept it real about her 17-year-old becoming a Bailey Agency runway model.
“For whatever reason she’s not as tall as we are. Her dad is 6’6″ and I’m 5’10” but Noel is 5’5″. I do not know how that happened. [I told her] ‘at the end of the day, you’re not standard model height. What else do you want to do? What else can we put on this list?'”
Luckily, Bailey has an amazing daughter to guide in whatever direction she wants to take.
“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.”
