It is well known that producers manipulate situations and scenes on reality shows, but now it seems a cast member of the Real Housewives of Atlanta faked an entire relationship for the cameras. Kandi Burruss has called out Cynthia Bailey’s boyfriend, Will Jones, accusing him of just wanting to be on TV. Could Bailey be paying Jones to be her on-camera love interest?
Radar Online reports that Jones and Bailey spent Halloween together, and he took a picture of the couple and posted it on Instagram. But, it was apparently all for show. RHOA was still in the middle of filming, but now that filming has ended, they are no longer together.
“There is no chemistry at all between Cynthia and Will,” claims an insider. “Anyone can see that. It is as plain as day.”
Rumors are rampant that the 50-year-old paid Jones to date her while she filmed the most recent season, and it wouldn’t be a first for the show. A few years ago, Kendra Moore paid Walter to be her boyfriend. Moore paid him herself, not Bravo. The network isn’t paying Jones, either. If he does go to the reunion, they will pay for a new haircut and suit.

Burruss told Bailey that Jones once appeared on Steve Harvey’s show made-over as an ugly man on a double date with superficial sisters. When they revealed he was good-looking, it was too late because they had already decided not to date him based on his altered looks.
Jones is known to date many women, and according to an insider, that is a problem throughout the season.
Per Hollywood Life, on the most recent episode of RHOA, Burruss grilled Jones, trying to find out if he was using Bailey, but she ultimately decided that he was a nice guy. But, he has appeared on at least two dating sites, so she has a reason to be skeptical.

Meanwhile, Bailey told US Weekly that she vowed to stay single for a year when she turned 50 in February. She has dated a few men since she divorced Peter Thomas last March, revealing that she uses the dating app Raya.
She says that the dating world has changed since she was last on the market ten years ago, and everything is about texting and emojis. She’s also noticed that men her age want to date younger women, and the whole cougar phenomenon has emerged.
Cynthia Bailey added that she is dating Jones, but she is keeping her options open. She is not ready to rush into anything, and she wants to take time for herself.
