Carlton Morton of 'Love is Blind' is not new to reality TV. He understands what it takes to spike viewership. But that's not to say that his ugly fight with Diamond Jack on Netflix's dating show was scripted. His behavior on it has drawn severe flak from the viewers. However, Cynthia Bailey, for whom Carlton worked as an assistant on 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' has nothing but love for him.

In a recently-aired episode of 'Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen' Cynthia expresses that even though she didn't approve of Carlton's ways on 'Love is Blind' she is happy that the boy will at least live a free life.

Carlton is bisexual and has dated men in the past but he was never able to come out in the open, be the person he really is. To struggle with one's own identity and to live in fear that he/ she will be judged for being different is extremely stressful, and that's probably why Cynthia has extended his best wishes and love towards Carlton. 

"Looking on the bright side of what I took from the show, I’m glad he came out and is free to be himself and who he wants to be. I don’t agree with the way he handled things, obviously, toward the end of his time on the show," The Daily Dish quoted Cynthia from Cohen's show.

Carlton has been going through a lot ever since the show went on air. He has received multiple death threats and scores of negative messages from people who don't approve of his sexual orientation. But the worst-hit came just last week when he decided to go on Instagram to share how he was done with everything. The alarming post triggered a 911 response, soon after which he sought therapy to be able to navigate his mental state better.

Amid all this, Cynthia seemed to be there for him. "I’ve been talking to him and trying to give him some positive counsel because he’s been going through a really tough time," she further told Cohen.
