Things that made me giggle, cringe, or just left me confused:
1. Phaedra: Just because you strip in a nurse's outfit does not make you a nurse. This is an excellent point.
2. Phaedra: Cynthia doesn’t have a brain of her own, poor thing. AGAIN, I do have a brain, and some people actually think I'm smart. Oh, that's right; I can’t be smart, because I'm not a lawyer.
3. Kim: I'm probably a better dancer than I am a singer. Does that mean you will stop singing?
4. It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Willie Wonka.
5. Dwight: Kim must have given Cynthia one of her wigs, because the wig she had on was horrible. And so was your suit. What's next?
6. Phaedra: Head nurse? What kind of head nurse? Very Funny.
7. NeNe: I have never been so glad to see Kim & Sheree. Oh you mean THIS week? Right.
8. Sheree: Cynthia is hooked on NeNe like a little tick. Need to scratch that b---- off. B----? B----, please.
9. Kim: Peter is probably worried that I want to spread my legs for NeNe. Okay, now I'm a lesbian? When did we trade places?
I love the agreement. Everyone takes everything too serious. Please do let the other ladies still your lovely demeanor.
I actually like you and NeNe as friends and I think even though she showed Kim the contract when Kim was talking bad about you she took up for you and told her she should get to know you. As I see on the previews for the next show she tells you that she showed Kim the contract so I don't think she was being mean when she did it.
Love you Cynthia! I hope you will stick around for another season of RHOA. You are a refreshing new addition to the cast. If anything, you have brought a bit more maturity to the show.
Cynthia.. I really felt they were hard on you this week and with all the crazy things FAKEdra says or does, who is she one to talk about anything... She knew her baby being born at 7 months was ridiculous... Anywho, keep up the good work.. and you & NeNe are my favorites!
you are the best! I totally thought the contract was a joke too. come on, it literally said it had to be notorized and signed by the President!! Calm down people! rock on cynthia
I'm glad to see that you care enough about your fans to blog... Can't say the same for some of the other ladies. I mean how long does it take to write a summary of the episode? Anyway, let me get off my soap box and say that I got the friendship contract.... Maybe because I'm a Pisces, too, but I knew you meant that as a joke. I guess some people just don't get our sense of humor??? Now about that confrontation with Phaedra, and Dwight's meddling. Maybe I saw the episode wrong, but I do remember Dwight telling Phaedra that Kim said it, which is why I found it strange that she accused you of saying it. I think she just associated you with the comment since you were there when Kim said it. I don't know. Anyway, love you and you're blogs. You're slowly but surely becoming my favorite housewife on this series!
It was obvious that the contract was a joke with the line, "notarized letter" and mention of the president. :) I got it. Most situations on this show seem to get blown out of proportion, this situation is no different. Phaedra is silly. First of all, we all saw Kim make the inappropriate statement, and you were upfront with her in asking about the constant lying regarding her due date. That was a legitimate question. She is attempting to deflect from her lying by brining focus to KIM's negative comments. It doesn't make her lie any less obvious. Keep doing what you do. You are beautifl and seem to be intelligent and have a great personality. It is also great that you always submit your blogs timely. I for one love to read what you all have to say about the episodes, certainly I'm not alone on that. Have a great holiday season. :)
You are very funny. I got the joke of the friendship contract. You are right, you need one with those ladies..LOL
Having a quirky sense of humor is a sign of intelligence. Everybody in my family would have been howling with laughter and making their own silly contracts had we been there. Taking everything literally is a sign that somebody just isn't that smart. Duh, Kim. I would have thought Nene would have gotten it because she can be funny, but maybe hers is not the "smart" kind of funny. The fact that the cast for this show can't blog regularly also shows they aren't the most literate crew on Bravo.
Hi Cynthia I just love you on the show. I believe that everyone who was watching the show knew that it was a joke. Instead of Nene laughing with Kim about it she should have been laughing with you about it. After everything that happened on the show its difficult for Nene to let her guards down. First season Sheree was suppose to be her friend left her off the guest list for her party. Then Kim turns around and becomes Sheree's best friend and turns on Nene. So basically I can go on but Nene has friendship issues. But I think you guys would be be great friends once she let her guards down. Love you Cynthia Wish You luck in all your endeavors. The Friendship Contract was hilarious.....
You are a good woman...better than I. Dwight, Fakedra, they are very insignificant. I wouldn't want either for a friend, frenemy, or housekeeper.
I understand why your feelings were hurt. But when are you women going to start learning that Nene is not a true friend? Season after season she is the first one to point the finger when others "do her wrong" but doesn't seem to take ownership or have any sensitivity to others when she opens her "BIG" mouth! Nene is all about being in the spotlight and if it means running over her friends with a truck, believe me, she'll do it. If I were you, I would keep it cordial, but be wary. And, what's up with you allowing her to disrespect you and flirt with your man right in front of you? She is crossing the line!
You are way too good for these girls! I think you should switch over the Housewives of Beverly Hills. On the Beverly Hills they are not catty but supportive of each other even though they have their rough moments. with each other.
You are by far my favorite on HWOA this season. Kim is just being snarky and I think she is probably threatened by your friendship with NeNe...keep your head up!
You are my favorite. Stay classy. That was a little low of Nene to take something that was clearly supposed to break the tension and turn it into what it became. Nene did that...no one else.
Cynthia, the fact they couldn't see it as a friendly jokish kind of thing is sad. I thought it was really sweet. I think Kim talks trash about you because she's jealous- period.
Cynthia, Pay Dwight no mind he hasn't been seen lately and wanted to be sure he was seen you know he is just like a woman love to gossip. He know Kim said what he told Phaedra. Happy Holidays to you and Your Family!!!
You are hysterical, Cynthia! I loved the "friendship contract" joke! Please, don't ever lose your sense of humor. It's great! Your blogs are the most fun to read, too.
Anyone with a brain should have got the "joke" about the friend contract. I thought it was a cute attempt to lighten things up with you, Peter & NeNe situation. You're so cute Cynthia. Pay no mind to the rest of them. Dwight just stirs things up to try and get a little face time on TV. He is a clown.
Cynthia, I think you are the most down to earth on the show. I knew the friendship contract was a joke and most likely it was an ice breaker for you because the relationship with NeNe was strained. Kudos to you for bringing up the 40 weeks to Phaedra she does not like to be called out on her lies but then again what does she expect when she lies on national tv. How can anyone ever believe anything she says as lawyer when she lies so easily. I do think her Kim comments were funny though. You on the only cast member that I feel that could be trustworthy on the Atlanta franchise.
Cynthia, I thought the friendship contract was funny and Nene should have kept it to herself. Dwight this season is sneaky and a liar. We all know he didn't give Greg 10,00 dollars or put 30,000 in Sheree's fashion show. The fakeness pouring off of him, Phaedra and her mother was sickning to watch. I'm glad that Nene and Peter hashed out their problems.
Personally, I didn't see anything wrong with the Friendship Contract. NeNe cries on your shoulder, you all share laughs and have fun together. You were there for her when she had surgery (where were Kim & Sheree' then?). I'm sure it was all in fun and an attempt to ease the tension that you felt about NeNe and Peter "bumping heads." You manage to remain neutral towards all the other cast members, which is a good place.
I thought was the Friendship Contract was funny -- and charming. It was a clever way to address what could have grown into an even more serious problem between you and NeNe. As for Dwight. He's a bitchy queen who is just mad that you took his place as the fifth Housewife. What a piece of work that guy is -- piece of too much work.
Cynthia, I thought the friend contract was a cute thing to do. Sorry Nene got all psycho about it and then tried to embarrass you by telling Kim. Ugh. You've been an excellent friend to her and don't deserve that sort of treatment.
Cynthia, I love you. I love you. I love you. Do I need to say it again? Where do I start? Firstly, I've followed you in your modeling career,as I myself would love to be on your level one day, I love to model. Secondly, I was very happy when Bravo chose you as an addition to the show. Thirdly, you are the only housewive who is CONSISTANT. You're not wishy-washy and you stand firm in what you believe in. You bring the "real" into the "reality" of the show. Only a FOOL(yes, I said it), would take the friendship contract seriously. I get exactly what you were trying to do. You were trying to make light of a heavy situation and make up with a friend. It was wrong for NeNe to take it to Kim and others; that was between the two of you. It was a joke mend the friendship and move along. And all of a sudden she was soooo happy to see Kim & Sheree ; like really? Anyhow lets not even talk about Willie Wonka. Why do people come on these reality shows for attention and act like every millisecond is not being recorded? Like what we don't have everything that was said three weeks prior recorded? Or did Willie Wonka steal that and tuck it in his hat? He is so wrong for lying there is no need for it. Anyhow Cynthia keep doing you and being you because you have a lot of fans out here!!!!!MUAH
Cynthia, i love your commentary. However, i would advise to not go there with attacking the ladies on your blogs. These woman are CRAZY - all of them. Don't let them take you there with them. I'd hate to see you get innolved with the whole tic for tac game that they do oh so well when taking digs at each other.
I too thought that Phaedra's comment about Kim being a stripping nurse was funny .
Dwight is looking for camera time by any means necessary.
NeNe does flirt with Peter.
You are beautiful. Your are smart. Again, these ladies have made it season after season on this show taking digs at each other. It's what they do. The public is smart enough to not buy into every snip they make
You are so...funny and down to earth. I love that you can make fun of yourself! I also love that you don't get offended by the petty comments your cast mates make about you. It's clear to me and (I'm sure) everyone else that you are a nice, genuine, and down to earth women that is just keepin it real!!! Best of luck on the show and in life!
Note to all: Not all intimate relationships among women are sexual!!! I applaud your value in women friends, others should take note!
Let's see: you are likeable, witty, have a positive and healthy romantic relationship, a beautiful child, a great relationship with your ex and father of said child that consists of more than just cashing child support checks, an established career that exists far outside of being a "Housewife", and on top of it all beauty. Perhaps the other "wives" are feeling a little inferior.
In Nene's defense, she only stated that she thought the contract was weird. She didn't make any other negative comments about you. You are actually the only person on the show that she calls her friend, she has relationships with everyone else.
Cynthia...I absolutely love you and Peter. I thought the Friendship Contract was a really sweet gesture on your part, you are true friend to NeNe. Actually I think you are the only one on the show that has not talked about NeNe behind her back. Hopefully NeNe will grow up and realize what being and having a friend means and hopefully before its too late and she has no real friends left. I need a copy of your contract for me and my best friend, we would welcome it.
Well I think that maybe you did mean the friendship contract as a joke, but the delivery was bad. When you tell or act out a joke the person that you are interacting with should know it was a joke. I don't think that NeNe did and it was because of the way that you acted so serious. Don't get me wrong I think you are great, but this one time you kind of messed it up.
The friendship contract was a very cute thing to do, i did not take as only a joke but as you trying to make it clear to Nene that you dont want anything silly to go between you and her, and that her friendship was important to you. That was a very nice thing to do but with the wrong person. I dont see the similarity between you and Nene. I am not surprised that she tried to ridicule you and the friendship contract because that's the type person she is...i hope you learned your lesson.
I love you. I understand your humor and the way you are. These women will turn you into something that your not. So please remain true to yourself. You are a beautiful black woman.
Cynthia, please do not let these women phase you. Some of them, believe that they are bigger, than what the actually are. I understood the Friendship Agreement, even it others did not. Your heart was in the right place. And Phaedra,bless her heart,is just a little crazy.
I thought/think your friendship contract was hilarious! I was LOL, that is something my girlfriends and I would do (although I think $19 is a little steep!). That wasn't nice of NeNE to show people and to make fun of it, normally she has a great sense of humor, what happened, this is funny stuff! I hope NeNe is not getting too full of herself. You are a beautiful person and I would love to have you as a best friend! You are real. Love you!
I like what you said about freindship on this show doesn't hold much weight. I am confused about the contract for Nene's eyes only. Did you not see the cameras in front of you while you were talking to Nene? Nene is always aware of the cameras, please don't rely on her for friendship.
Hi, First you are a wonderful person and a wonderful friend, unfortunately, and maybe fortunately, your eyes are about to be opened as to what type of "friend" NENE really is Now truthfully, I didn't get the idea that the friend contract was a joke by you I thought it was a wonderful jester on your part to let your "friend" know that you cared about her feelings in light of Peter's actions and by the way, I tend to agree with Peter about the NeNe situation. I wish I had a man who wants my attention when we first get home, he would get it unless my "friend"was in the middle of an emergency and my "friend" would understand. Lastly keep in mind that while you are use to attention given that you are a model, NeNe has not been use to all the attention that she is getting and she sees you as a threat and she will keep you close while guarding her place on the show like a lioness.
As I watched you and NeNe with the friendship contract, I was cracking up. It was so ridiculous even the way you were reading and laughing at it. (Need permission from the President to end friendship). It seemed clear to me that you were making a joke. I took it like, hey we are making things way more complicated that it should be.
I love you on here Cynthia! You happen to be the most balanced woman on here! They are so stumped by a friend contract because the do not know what a real friend is! They are so catty and rude to each other the fact that anyone could truly value and love thier friends for real is beyond them. NeNe should be truly ashamed thru all this you have been there for her thru thick and thin and now she gets all hollywood on you? But thats her and I guess no one should be surprised. Please dont let anything Phaedra has to say bother you, she is so obvious in her own world that she is the one without the brain. Kim and she should really stop talking since everything they say sounds so ridiculous. Again Cynthia you and your family are the best I enjoy watching you and reading your blogs every week. You are super hilarious to me!
All I have to say is Cynthia your a great person all around...dont even waste your time explaining to people regarding this matter cause at the end of the day it doesnt matter. You are the realest housewife on Atlanta besides Kandi and I commend you for holding yourself like a real woman. do your thing girl and dont pay mind to others. hope everything goes well with you and your husband.
Cynthia, I understood the humor in the Friendship Contract. I saw is as being funny and cute. I understood that it was meant to be a joke, you could see that when you gave it to NeNe. I too loved when Anderson Cooper gave her a friend contract. too funny! I hate that Kim took it out of context. I feel that Kim is trying to get NeNe back on her side so she is saying whatever NeNe wants to hear. I think Kim was jealous of your friendship with NeNe and she saw this as a way to blast you. I think you are a great person and I love you on the show! Kim can go jump in a lake. (joke Kim.....don’t literally go do it)
They really went hard on you this week...i wonder why??? I've learned that when you are being talked about you must be doing something right! Don't let those things get to you. I would have been happy to sign the friend contract!!! Looking at the rest of the girls on the cast friend contracts need to be in rotation amongst all of them! Maybe then it would be more chatting and less ratting. But then again?? What show would that be?? Keed doin you the best Cynthia! - Ebonie
Cynthia, my girlfriends and I all agree that the friendship contract was funny, sweet and appropriate...we all had an aww moment and wish that we had thought of it first; we've all argued and been upset with one or the other at some point! It should have been a perfect tension breaker as well as proof that she had been on your mind, even though you hadn't spoken for a few. I don't think nene is a great friend, the edit made it seem like she couldn't wait to dish with others about it, about you...and spin a great friend moment into whatever it was that she turned it into, ewww. They'd all be lucky to have you as a friend! I love your blogs and I want a Cynthia doll on my shoulder to interject what I SHOULD have said in times of verbal duress! You are the realest bravo housewife!
I simple adore you don't change I get your sense of humor and I think NE NE was a little put off because you had not spoken for several days and your friendship was in question.... I'm so happy that the three musketeers are back in the saddle.... I think you, Ne Ne and Peter are hiliarious keep it real and disregard any misspelled words at work and typing on the low lol....
