Perhaps old-pals, Nene Leakes and Cynthia Bailey of the Real Housewives of Atlanta might become friends again.

Although Leakes missed Bailey’s grand opening ceremony of her new business, the Bailey Wine Bar, where Bailey’s boyfriend, Mike Hill also did a surprise proposal, Leakes did send a handwritten letter along with several platters of wine-friendly food, as blogger, Love B. Scott reports.

Leake’s letter read:

“Never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine that we would be in this place. I’ve always been a supportive friend towards you and this time won’t be any different. I’m proud of you and cheering for you from afar! I hope you continue to have the courage to run after your dreams! Congratulations on the opening of your new business. I’m sure it will be a success.”

According to Love B. Scott, Bailey was moved to tears behind Leakes’ letter, which the RHOA cameras captured.

During the last season of RHOA, Nene Leakes and Cynthia Bailey were at odds, but perhaps Leakes’ attempt at extending the olive branch means fans of the former close friends will see the two back to their normal relationship.
