"RHOA's" Cynthia Bailey Reveals More on Uterine Fibroid Diagnosis

Nov 12 2013, 10:20am CST | by ABC News Radio

Alex Martinez/Bravo(NEW YORK) -- On the latest episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Cynthia Bailey revealed she had been diagnosed with fibroids -- or noncancerous growths -- in her uterus that had grown so large many thought she was pregnant.

The reality star told ABC News Radio that she finally had to slow down from her modeling career to address the health issue that debilitated her and made her anemic.

"You know when you're busy?  I mean I'm just busy.  I work all the time. ...I knew I never had any energy.  It was like this vicious cycle," Bailey explained of the common women's health issue that reportedly occurs in 3 out of 4 women during their lifetime and often causes heavy menstrual bleeding. 

"That time of the month for me was just a disaster. ...I literally can't even tell you how many times I have been sitting at a restaurant having dinner with my husband [Peter Bailey], being on my cycle, and it being so heavy no matter what. And I'm constantly, constantly, doing the things I need to do to make sure I don't have a little accident and how many times I get up and Peter's like, 'Babe...like don't move,'" the reality star said solemnly.

Bailey added that her enlarged fibroids also made her crave the strangest things "like chalk" and it also made her "addicted to chewing ice."

The mother of one said the fact that "people are embarrassed to talk about it" made her want to share her story on Bravo.

"It's something that I would've been totally fine to do privately and not do on the show, but once I really started dealing with it I felt like everybody I knew had fibroids," Bailey explained.  "Like, there's two or three ladies on the show that's dealing with them.  I have friends that have dealt with it and I thought, 'You know what?  I'm going to do this on the show.'"

"This is not a sexy Cynthia moment.  This is not a fashion moment for me.  This is just a real moment of something that really has affected my life," she concluded.

Bravo's Real Housewives of Atlanta airs Sunday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
