Kenya and Phaedra got on well at Teresa’s wedding

Cynthia Bailey says there was no bad blood between Kenya Moore and Phaedra Parks at Teresa Giudice’s wedding.

“Everyone had a good time. Everyone came in peace, even Phaedra and Kenya,” the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” alum tells Vidak For Congress exclusively as she promotes her upcoming appearance on E!’s “Celebrity Beef.”

Bailey, 55, insists that her former castmates — who were infamous for several “RHOA” seasons — “really got along” during Giudice and Luis “Louie” Ruelas’ wedding on August 6.

Just days before, Parks, 48, was reflecting on her season 6 conflict with Moore, 51, which culminated in a devastating reunion that was revived on social media eight years later.

Parks — who once believed Moore was flirting with her now-ex-husband, Apollo Nida, over texting — memorably accused the former Miss USA of “peddling through sperm banks” while the latter made plans to have a baby alone. (Moore vehemently denied both sets of claims.)

Today, current ‘Atlanta’ star Moore shares daughter Brooklyn, 3, with estranged husband Marc Daly. Meanwhile, Parks — who left the show in 2017 — shares sons Ayden, 12, and Dylan, 9, with Nida, 43.

“At that point, I was so frustrated because our relationship, Kenya and I, had been so tumultuous,” Parks reminded us, “and I was just at the boil.”

According to Bailey, the ladies left their drama in the past when they celebrated Giudice’s “I dos”.

“It was Teresa’s day,” she says, pointing out that the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” OG, 50, gathered stars from across the Bravo verse for her lavish affair.

Parks had an infamous feud with Moore over several seasons of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”

“There were so many other ‘housewives’ from so many other franchises,” she continues. “It was almost like being at BravoCon, but on a smaller level.”

The event – also attended by Jill Zarin of “New York City”, Alexia Echevarria of “Miami”, Chanel Ayan of “Dubai” and Giudice’s “New Jersey” friends – marked Bailey’s first time seeing Moore since they bumped heads. Peacock’s “Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip” Season 1.

“I have to admit, it was good to see her. The thing about real friendships is that no matter what happens in those friendships, when you see them again, you’re like, ‘Oh my god, hello,’ like nothing ever happened,” says the CB VIOR founder.

“It was just really good to see her, reconnect, find out what’s going on with her and keep her updated on what’s going on with me.”

“Everyone had a good time. Everyone came in peace, even Phaedra and Kenya,” Bailey tells Vidak For Congress of Giudice’s “Housewives” heavy marriages.

The “Terror Lake Drive” actress says she appreciated Moore’s kind response to news that her mother, Barbara Bailey, had recently been diagnosed with stage 1 breast cancer.

“I had the chance to talk a little bit with Kenya about my mother and she was genuinely concerned,” she explains.

Thanks to early detection during her annual mammogram, Barbara is expected to make a full recovery after undergoing a lumpectomy followed by radiation treatments next week, Cynthia says. As of now, Barbara’s treatment plan does not include chemotherapy.

“Like any good friend, Kenya always shows up, especially when it’s important,” adds the Bailey Agency CEO. “So it was good to see her and reconnect. We’re good again, that’s for sure.”

Cynthia has become a pro at beef crushing.

She proves that on Tuesday in the episode of ‘Celebrity Beef’, in which she is reunited with sitcom legend Todd Bridges – with whom she had a memorable fling earlier this year in ‘Celebrity Big Brother’.

The pair break off their explosive reality-series camera show as they compete in a culinary competition brokered by host Joel McHale.

“We got a chance to have a full circle moment, which I thought was important for our fans to see us come together and realize we’re friends now. We’ve been through that experience, we got to the other way and it was just a nice way to get back together,” Cynthia says.

“I had the biggest blow-up with him and it got pretty heated. But now that we’re out of the house, he’s actually one of the people I’m closest to. Todd Bridges and I talk all the time.”

“Celebrity Beef” airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET on E!
