Cynthia Bailey and Mike Hill are finally husband and wife. That RHOA star and the sports broadcaster tied the knot in the middle of the coronavirus and did not let a global pandemic get in the way of them making their love official.
Despite skipping the diet, the two keep separate homes in separate states. Bailey recently gave an update on where she hopes she and Hill will live permanently now that their wedding is over.
Cynthia Bailey and Mike Hill have been in a long distance relationship
Bailey and Hill met during a dating experiment on Steve Harvey Show and have been in love since then. After 14 months of dating, Hill proposed Bailey during the opening of her wine cellar and event venue in the summer of 2019. Prior to that, Bailey was open about how much she would love to marry Hill.
The couple got married on October 10 in a lavish ceremony in Georgia in front of 250 guests. The wedding was not filmed for RHOA.

Despite their long relationship and now husband and wife, the couple has lived in separate states since the beginning of their romance. Bailey lives in Georgia, while Hill lives and works in LA. The two commute to see each other at least every other week.
Bailey is quarantined with Hill and their adult daughters from previous relationships during the coronavirus shutdown and the joke that the surviving COVID-19 quarantine is proof of their love. Bailey’s daughter Noelle also lived with Hill, while Bailey lived primarily in Georgia for almost a year before moving into her own place.
Cynthia Bailey has been determined to live in LA, but now says she wants Mike Hill in Atlanta full time
Bailey previously admitted she had no trouble moving to LA full time when she and Hill got married, especially since her daughter also lives on the west coast. She even said she would be open to joining the cast RHOBH if the opportunity arose.
“Beverly Hills, I’m not against … the reality is, I live in Atlanta and I live in LA. As a reality star, if we are to show my truth, I am also friends with many ladies in Beverly Hills, ”she said in an interview with Hip Hollywood. “I would be open to showing both parts of my life, my LA life and my Atlanta life, so we’ll see if Bravo and Truly Original can figure it out.”

Still, Bailey says being bi-costal is not a problem. Now that she and Hill are married, she changes her tune and tells The New York Daily News (per Bravo) The Daily Dish podcast), “I work really hard on Mike,” she says. “I do not think he will want to return to LA for too long without me.”
Hill has said he is open to moving to Georgia as much of his family lives near Bailey. He also has other work appearances in the Atlanta area.
Both Hill and Bailey say they want to keep their respective homes and move into a common room together.
