Cynthia Bailey recently tied the knot with her man and could not be happier. She and Mike Hill had a rather lavish wedding. However, the two were careful about following all the SOPs to avoid the spread of COVID-19. Some of the necessary measures the happy couple took also included personalized masks of the bride and groom’s names. However, despite Cynthia and Mike’s efforts, there are some people who thought the pair was “selfish” to have a big wedding during a global pandemic. This list included television host, Wendy Williams.
Wendy decided to slam Cynthia for her decision to have a lavish wedding. She called out the bride for having no concern for social distancing. Especially when the virus is spreading rapidly in the United States.
Even though the pictures and videos shared from their wedding were beautiful, it did not distract Wendy from the fact that it was actually attended by hundreds of people.
“Congratulations to selfish Cynthia and her husband Mike Hill… Some guests wore no masks at all, and all I can feel is coughing. Everybody looks beautiful and the place looks nice, but there was no social distancing and I’m frightened for all of them,” Wendy said.
She did say that Cynthia and Mike make a good couple. However, their “pompous” wedding came at a time when everyone is dealing with a life-threatening global pandemic.
Furthermore, Wendy Williams went a step further and predicted that their marriage will not last since there are cameras involved.
“Cameras will ruin a marriage, and I feel like this marriage will last at the most, only three years because they have Bravo involved and something will come up.”
Is What Wendy Said True?
However, since this is a global pandemic, it is right to wonder if what Wendy said about the couple, not social distancing is, in fact, true.
But as one source revealed to HollywoodLife, Kenya Moore, one of the bridesmaids, was on mask duty at all times. According to the unnamed guest,
“If she saw you without a mask and you weren’t eating or drinking, she had no issue coming up to you and telling you to put it on.”
However, even if all the SOPs were being followed, it is pretty tone-deaf to host such a large gathering when there are people literally dying because of this deadly virus. It is very easy for the virus to spread, even if you are wearing masks. It can spread from a touch or any moment you take your mask off. Either to eat or drink. To assume that you are a 100% safe just because you have a mask on is not wise.
We just hope, for their sake, that no one has caught the virus and all the guests are safe. However, congratulations to the happy couple. What’s done is done. I’m sure having a wedding during a pandemic is not easy. I just hope they can move on from this negativity and start their married lives together.
