Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey is busy planning her wedding to sportscaster Mike Hill, and she knows exactly who she wants to officiate the ceremony – Steve Harvey, the man who brought them together. Bailey recently revealed her desire for Harvey to be part of the ceremony, and it could definitely happen because Harvey has officiated a wedding in the past.
According to TooFab, Bailey shared her thoughts on Harvey when she was at LAX, saying, “I would love to have Steve Harvey there. I mean, he’s the reason why we met.”
Bailey and Hill met for the first time back in April 2018 when they both appeared on Harvey’s talk show for his version of the dating game. Three eligible bachelors answered questions with the hope of scoring a potential date with Bailey, but the 52-year-old says that at first another guy caught her eye because he was from Atlanta and had a “home court advantage.”
“I’m very grateful. Mike and I are very grateful that we met,” said Bailey. “Who meets on a dating show and it works out?”
Bailey added that she would love for Harvey to be the officiant at her wedding, but she hasn’t had the chance to ask him yet. She also revealed that her wedding date is “perfect” because it will take place on October 10, 2020, and having Harvey marry them would make it more perfect and give their courtship a “happy ending.”
In 2017, Harvey got ordained in the state of New York to marry Maria Menuous and Keven Undergaro in a ceremony that took place in Times Square and was broadcast live on television for Harvey’s New Year’s Eve special.
As RHOA fans know, Bailey was married once before to club owner Peter Thomas, and the breakdown of that relationship played out in front of Bravo cameras. She has also turned down proposals from Russell Simmons and former NBA player Jayson Williams.
Bailey is the mom of 20-year-old Noelle, who she shares with ex Leon Robinson, and Hill is the father of two daughters.
In addition to planning their upcoming wedding, Bailey and Hill are getting ready to launch a dating show called The Hookup. Cynthia Bailey stars in new episodes of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, which air Sunday nights on Bravo.
