It was one of the most heartwarming moments in Housewives history when Noelle Robinson came out as queer in the most casual way possible — on a drive with her mom, Cynthia Bailey. Now, the aspiring model is in a serious relationship with a woman she met at her former college.
Andy Cohen addressed the situation on the second part of the Real Housewives of Atlanta virtual reunion when he asked the soon-to-be-married supermodel how she was adjusting to Noelle’s new life.
Bailey responded: ‘I’m adjusting well. She’s happy in her relationship, she’s happy being in Los Angeles. As a mother, all you want is for your kids to be happy.’
Cohen also praised Cynthia for the way she reacted when Robinson came out to her.
Noelle and Alexis have been spending some time in quarantine together. Additionally, the couple celebrated Alexis’s 23rd birthday with a sweet post on Instagram.
This comes after Noelle grew up in front of RHOA viewers’ eyes. She went off to college but has decided to move to LA to pursue a career in acting and modeling.
The runway legend explained to People TV that what was important was that her daughter knows that she is loved for who she is.
‘I’ve always tried to be the kind of parent to Noelle to make her feel like she can tell me anything. I didn’t talk about sex [with] my mom, let alone my sexuality or anything like that. So I really wanted to make sure that she felt comfortable talking to me about it. And she did, as you saw. You know, in the times we live in, people have their camera phones and I would hate for someone to video her with one of her little friends and then put it out there. Because what happens when you’re on a reality show is if it’s out there before you put it out there, it’s like a secret that we’ve had, that we were trying to hide something.’
It’s great to see that Robinson has the support system she needs.
