Cynthia has a new man! And she’s showing him off on Instagram and all-round Atlanta!
Cynthia Bailey just caught us all off-guard by going “Instagram official” with her new bae, motivational speaker Will Jones. She posted the first pic of the two chilling on Lake Lanier on Monday (Aug. 28).
And Jones must be making her really happy. Earlier in the day she posted a photo walking on a Lake Lanier pier and hinted at the new man in her life in the caption. “He’s got me feeling pretty special,” she wrote.
It’s unclear how long Cynthia and Jones have been dating, but they’ve been seen attending public events together in Atlanta since at least July. The couple most recently accompanied each other at the Survivor’s Remorse x Upscale Magazine “Champions Table” Private Dinner & Cocktail party earlier this month.
According to Da Minority Report, Will Jones is a motivational speaker who has appeared on shows like The Steve Harvey Show, and rubs elbows with Atlanta elites, including current Atlanta mayoral candidate Michael Sterling.
Jones has been married twice and has at least two daughters. One of his children makes frequent appearances on his Instagram account.
A quick glance at his posts on The Gram suggest Jones is adventurous with an outgoing personality. Several posts show him jumping off boats, skydiving, flying an airplane, and he may also have a past in bodybuilding/modeling.

Perseverance, Dedication, Determination and a Decision! I am always asked is what was the greatest success that I ever conquered! Well, to finally answer that question…. It wasn't anything that had a material value, it wasn't anything that had to do with business! It was what I was able to accomplish for myself, My body, My Soul! A few years ago, I set a goal to work out more consistently. As I was working out my trainer at the time ask me why am I working out?! All my reasons were vain and not once did I say I wanted to challenge my mind, my body and my soul. I wanted to work out because it was good for my ego. My Trainer asked me …. Why don't you challenge yourself and go a place you have never gone before? Why don't you compete?!? Naw, not me!! Don't want to be a muscle head, don't have the time, blah, blah… I realized my subconscious was answering because if I failed, I knew it would be a blow to my self image and worried about what others would think. Being conscious I knew I was limiting myself. I decided to jump in till the point of no return! LOL! It wasn't easy! Nonetheless, that's is where the Decision came into place to keep me in and the Perseverance, Dedication, Determination to keep me fueled and a support system that showed me love and kept me balanced. I even had to make real time lifestyle changes and heck, I even lost friends and acquaintances along the way. However, as you peel away the old you a NEW YOU emerges and people that support your goal and the priorities of the new you will be attracted to you and positivity will emerge! #TrustThat There were so many times I wanted to quit and so many times I relapsed on my lifestyle. When I did relapse I forgave myself and started over but never quit! (So many stories in between but I will keep it short for this post.)😂😂 Then 💥bam💥before I knew it, I was on stage!!! Doing something that I never thought I would do!!!! Crossing a finish line I never thought I would cross! this day when I come across hard times that have me doubting myself, I go back to this time and tell myself I can do ANYTHING I put my my mind too!!! And you can too!!!!
Geez, I hope Cynthia can keep up with him after being married to
Uncle Ben Peter Thomas for so long. I have a feeling that she can, though. The newly-turned 50-year-old gave an update on her life to Bravo’s The Daily Dish and she seemed happier than I’ve ever seen her before.
“I’m in a great place in my life. I just turned 50, and I am really channeling my inner vixen.”
Season 10 of RHOA is currently filming and Jones just may appear on the show. Cynthia revealed she was coming from a date in the above clip and it seems Jones is already in the RHOA circle. He posted photos with Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker back in 2016.
I don’t know about you, but I just got real excited for RHOA Season 10. I want to see Cynthia happy again and she will finally have a storyline! Real Housewives of Atlanta is expected to return in November.
