RHOA alum Cynthia Bailey has revealed she had “nothing else to give” on her wedding night – resulting in a sex-free bridal suite.
The Bravo TV personality married beau Mike Hill earlier this month at the Governors Towne Club in Acworth, Georgia, with 250 guests in attendance.
The sheer intensity and emotion of the lavish, sun-soaked day meant there was little scope for anything else come bedtime.
Cynthia, 53, told Hollywood Life the newlyweds point-blank didn’t consummate their marriage on their wedding night as she was “like a shell.”
She candidly told the website: “I had nothing else to give. We both passed out.
“When we got home, we took off our clothes and we showered and we got into bed.
“We turned on Netflix and it was just kind of like, ‘Do we have to have sex?’ because we just had gotten married? Do we really have to do this right now?
“Because we were too damn tired!
“I was like, ‘Babe. You have me for the rest of your life. Can you check me in two days? We were mentally and physically exhausted.
“I don’t know how someone actually has sex after they get married. You’re exhausted.”
Yet the tiredness was worth it as the pair dazzled on their special day attended by RHOA co-stars Kenya Moore and Kandi Burruss as bridesmaids.
Cynthia shared a select set of images highlighting her sequin wedding gown by Nneka C. Alexander of Brides by Nona and some centered on her first dance with Mike.
She later switched it up and shared a snapshot of the couple wearing casual clothes – her in jeans, him in sweats and both of them in T-shits and sneakers.
The newlyweds each punched out one of their firsts, like they’re showing of championship rings, to showcase their wedding jewelry.
Both smiled big for the camera, with their heads tucked in close to each other and one of Cynthia’s legs draped over Mike’s knee.
Caught up in the sweet moment, the model put up her bare fingers, instead of her left hand with the massive ring on it.
Mike helf up his correct hand, with his band on full display, while his wife’s can still be seen on the hand resting on her leg.
Cynthia captioned the photo: “The Hills? @itsmikehill #CHill #2020”
The happy couple announced their wedding news to PEOPLE on Saturday, sharing: “Mike and I are elated that today has finally come! 10/10/20 is and always will be our perfect date.
“We are not perfect, but, are perfect for each other. We are living in a very different time, and now more than ever we realize that life is too short, and to never take anything for granted.”
