“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Cynthia Bailey covers the January 2012 issue of Denim magazine. Her husband Peter alsp Thomas accompanies her in some photos from the magazines spread. In a small excerpt, Cynthia dishes on how she and reality star Nene Leakes are besties on and off the show. 

Check out the excerpt below.

“NeNe and I are friends on & off the show. She has shown me nothing but love and loyalty. We connect because we are both strong and independent. There is zero jealousy and zero insecurity. We lift each other when we are down, and applaud each other when we are up. I love NeNe because she owns who she is, and I respect that. My Husband and NeNe also connect for the same reasons. Peter and NeNe are both straight shooters, and always keep it real. They are friends because they say what they mean and never apologize for being themselves. I love both for that.”

At least Nene has one real friend on the show. We all know so many people despise her HBIC attitude.
