Steve Harvey Takes Credit for Putting Lovebirds Cynthia Bailey, Mike Hill Together

Talk show host Steve Harvey took credit for Cynthia Bailey‘s newfound love with ESPN sports anchor Mike Hill.

The “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man” author played matchmaker between Bailey and Hill. Harvey invited the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star onto his show “Steve” in April. He gave her an opportunity to select one of three men to go on a date with, including the sports anchor. However, Hill was not Bailey’s first choice, but Harvey somehow convinced the reality star to give Hill at least one chance.

“Cynthia Bailey was going to pick somebody else,” Harvey told “Entertainment Tonight” during an interview. “I told her, ‘You’re not picking that guy, you gon’ pick this guy [referring to Hill].”

Harvey said Bailey was going to select an attorney from Atlanta to date, but the comedian disagreed.

“I talked her into him, they started dating. … So now it’s pretty serious and they’re exclusive. She’s found somebody that’s she’s crazy about,” Harvey boasted.

Bailey and Hill have been posting a series of photos with one another. Bailey told People magazine in July, “I’ve recently met someone who I really like. I am looking forward to seeing where things go. … When I first got divorced I was pretty closed. The door was closed to marriage, and the door has opened itself back up. I’m not kicking it open, but it ain’t closed.”

The 51-year-old appears to be quite happy with Hill, and fans sent warm wishes toward the new couple’s way.

“I hope and wish this last forever 😍,” one fan wrote.

“I remember when you guys met thru Steve. You both knew upfront what you wanted. I am so happy for you Cynthia,” another person added.

“Omg…you look so happy! Just like a school girl in love! #butterflies.”

“You both look fabulous together congrats ❤️.”

“I know that’s right! 🙌🏽Beautiful couple! 😍Really Happy for you two. ❤️#blacklove.”
