Kenya Moore let the cat out of the bag! On the December 22 episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Mike Hill got down on one knee and proposed to Cynthia Bailey in front of all of her family and friends. However, the surprise was almost ruined by Kenya, 48, who was tipped off by Kandi Burruss that something big was happening during the opening of Cynthia’s latest drinking establishment, The Bailey Wine Cellar.
Before Kenya arrived at the event, Mike, 49, told Kandi, 43, to stick around and not head out just yet, which lead her to believe something big was going to happen. Although she didn’t have a confirmation of a potential proposal, she told her fellow castmate to hurry up, this way she wouldn’t miss anything.
When Kenya finally showed up to the celebration, she pulled Kandi and Cynthia, 52, aside and basically told Cynthia that Mike was going to propose. “So, all of his whole family is here?” Kenya asked Cynthia with a sly expression on her face. “I’m telling you I feel like he might propose tonight.”
Cynthia was shocked by Kenya’s assumption. “No, you don’t think he’s going to do it tonight?” she asked. “I don’t think he’s going to do it tonight,” she added, downplaying the notion since her mother was not invited. Moments later, Cynthia’s mother, Barbara, walked in. Kenya insisted that she had a gut feeling about it. “I’m telling you my stomach has butterflies,” she said.
After a surprised Cynthia walked away, Kandi scolded Kenya for her potentially ruining the proposal. “Why would you bring that up to her when you and I are talking on our own? That is not cool! Like, why would you do that?” she said.
“Mike said to me, ‘Don’t leave yet. Don’t leave early.’ Basically giving me a heads up that he’s about to do something big, right?” Kandi said during a confessional. “I give Kenya a little text: ‘I think he’s going to pop the question.’ Then all of a sudden she just blurts it out. Like, why? Why would you do that? B***h.”
Despite Kenya’s loose lips, Mike’s proposal to the model was successful. “I want you to be my forever,” the Fox broadcaster said before he got down on one knee to ask for her hand.
