Are you excited to be kicking-off for The Real Housewives Live Tour?
Yes, very excited to be here on the tour, love the casino–I love to gamble and it’s a great way to stay connected to the fans so really fun.

What does it mean to you to have so much support tonight from fans?
It’s great! We started this show, we’re going into our fifth season so it’s very exciting, you know there’s been a big switch up with the cast of New York City so I’m very sad to see Jill and Kelly go and the women but I’m excited for the new season and I’ll miss them.

Do you know who your new cast members will be for season five?
Well, there’s three new girls that I think are cast and I don’t know that much more, I’m going to be meeting them soon because we’re going to start shooting.

How are things going with you and your boyfriend Jacques Azoulay?
Oh, Jacques–Jacques is great! And I’m looking at colleges with Victoria and so a lot of exciting things coming up for me I don’t know about the music thing, we’ll see. I mean how can I out-do “Money Can’t Buy You class” and “Chic C’est La Vie” so we’ll see but a lot of great things coming up this season, so I’m very excited.

How is the live tour going?
I love it because it’s the only opportunity that we’ve had to interact with our fans–it’s usually just cast mates–and then we just watch the show with you guys so this is really cool because we really get to see the people that really make sure we have jobs. (Laughs)

You’re celebrating your one year anniversary with Peter–are you enjoying married life?
Yes, one year in the can despite what the naysayers had to say–Kim Zolciak–we made it one year, we’re very happy, it’s a marriage so we’re working it out. This season’s going to be I think it’s going to be our best season for Atlanta. For me personally, it’s not my first time on the playground so I kind of learned a lot first season so you’ll see a more vocal Cynthia this season. I’m opening up my own modeling school which you guys will see the whole birthing of that whole situation; Peter’s opening up a small bar–we lost our restaurant last season so we’re just rebuilding and married and my sister’s like drama her and Peter are going at it; me and NeNe (Leakes) are friends and that’s drama and it’s going to be good.

Can you talk more about your modeling school?
It hasn’t officially opened yet we’ve been shooting the whole time, we’re actually still shooting; to be honest I expect it to do very, very well and I think by being on the show as well obviously that’s going to just rock it out of here but it’s something that I always wanted to do so I’m glad that I have the show to like help me boost it up. I’m dealing with some of the young kids as well I also have a pageant component and I’m doing acting–the whole thing because the thing is everybody can be a model so it’s a school of fashion so if you can’t really be a model because that’s total genetics really at the end of the day you either have it or you don’t–let’s face it. This is how to be a make-up artist, fashion stylist, anything in the industry so I just want to give that information back being a veteran for 25 years.
