Cynthia Bailey has quickly become Atlanta's newest poster girl, so it may come as a shock that the newest addition to 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' has only lived in Georgia for three years. After living in New York City for 25 years, the model traded the Big Apple for a Georgia peach, and walked off the runway and onto reality TV.

"Modeling is a walk in the park compared to this thing," Bailey says of her transition to television.

When asked if she studied any of the other 'Housewives' series to prepare for her role, Bailey beamed about 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.' "They're just like rich and ballin' out all over the place ... I just wanna like be friends with them," she laughed.

Bailey chatted with PopEater about avoiding 'Housewives' drama, her issues with Phaedra Parks and whether she'll walk down the aisle this season! Watch the video after the jump.
