Cynthia is synonymous with the TV show as she appeared on RHOA for over 10 years. Her mother and sister, Mal, have also appeared on the series.

Cynthia said that she thinks her experience of being on RHOA will serve her well in the Celebrity Big Brother house, however, she also added: “I love my family, my family are everything to me”, so hopefully she doesn’t get too homesick.
