Cynthia Bailey

Cynthia talks about hosting the ladies for Mother's Day and selects her favorite parts of the episode.

on Nov 1, 20100

 

A social network is a social structure made up of individuals (or organizations) called "nodes," which are tied (connected) by one or more specific types of interdependency, such as: friendship, kinship, common interest, financial exchange, dislike, sexual relationships, relationships of beliefs, knowledge, or prestige.

I love MOTHERS' DAY! It's the one day that we (the super moms of the world) get recognized for all the many wonderful things that we do for our children. It is also the day that we show appreciation for the women that brought us into the world, our own mothers. One of the great things that I share in common with my cast mates is being a mother. No matter how much we may agree or disagree, I think we all can connect with each other as mommies. So I decided to throw a Mothers' Day brunch in honor of us, and you can only imagine my excitement when all the ladies (with the exception of Kim, her daughter was ill) confirmed. I was truly touched that such a fabulous group of social butterflies cleared their schedules to allow me to host them in my home. I knew that if they were giving up their special day for me (as I'm sure other invites were extended), I had to make sure that a good time was had by all.

Rewind back to the definition of social network. Well, I recently saw the movie "The Social Network" (stay with me guys, you know I tend to jump all over the place with my blog), and it got me thinking about my own social network. My whole life has always been composed of variety of social agendas and social extracurricular activities ranging from invites to attend the Oscars to running around like a crazy woman to find a last minute gift for a 10-year old birthday party. I am constantly in a room or at a dinner table with people who I need to know (so I'm told) or someone who has been told that they need to know me. I love meeting people; however I do find that meeting like-minded career oriented fun folks to socialize with can be a challenge. And even when you meet someone that you kind of hit it off with, does that mean that you invite them into your home around your family?

I love you and Ne-Ne, you guys are my favorite!! The thing I love about you is that you keep it real, and you seem like a loyal friend!! The comment the person made about you being wrong for telling Peter, I disagree!!!! You and Peter are partners and friends and I feel like you should be able to talk to him about anything thats going on in your life!! He knew that Ne-Ne and Greg was having problems anyways, because he was over at her house the night they were arguing anyways!!!! You were lady-like for admitting that he was wrong for saying something, you told him not to talk about it and he did! Point blank I like you, continue to be real unlike Phadera.....She's just as fake as they come!!

I so agree with you Cynthina. You are exactley what we needed. You don't come off snootie, or above everyone else and you end up having more class than anyone else. You and Kandi are my favorite housewives. Keep up the good work and hope to get to see you do some modeling this season.

your doing just fine girl

Someone wrote that Peter looks like the cheating kind. He does not. That is from a person who has an insecurity. He looks like he loves you a lot. Someone else wrote that you need to keep people's business to yourself. Everyone tells their significant, significant others about what is going on with the people in thier lives especially if it is bothering you like NeeNee's and Greg's relationship. It worked out great anyway because NeeNee met Kandi's mother and she was just what NeeNee needed. You are a wonderful person and a great friend. Continue to be you.

CYNTHIA I LOVE YOU ON THE SHOW AND I MUST SAY THAT YOU ARE MY FAVORITE HOUSEWIVE. PHAEDRA SAYING THAT YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD IS GHETTO OR RE-GENERATED LOL BUT HSE DOESNT REALIZE HOW SILLY SHE MAKES HERSELF LOOK. I HOPE NOELLE GROWS UP TO BE WHATEVER SHE WANTS TO BE MODEL,LAWYER,TEACHER,ARTIST, WHATEVER SHE DESIRES AND HOPEFULLY BE HAPPY..

Glad you're here

Hi Cynthia,

You are just what this show needed. You bring a level of humor, class and intelligence that was sorely missing! I was an uber fan before, but now, I tune in just to see what you're gonna say next (your comments about Phaedra's shower were priceless!). What a blessed little girl Noelle is! I hope she grows up to be just like you...even if she does look just like her daddy!

Keep up the good work!

I almost feel out my seat when Leon came on the show last night. Lord have mercy!! They didn't even show him in the previews, Bravo what's up??? Cynthia, Leon is a lot different then Peter, You two seem great together. I have to say, this show is getting better every week, thanks to you. Hope Leon is on more, you two look good together. Wish you was marrying him, now that would be a show. Hell that would be a whole other show. Not hating on Peter, I find your story line interesting. Just seeing you, Leon and your daughter makes me think, that's all. It's wonderful that you two have that kind of relationship and Noelle is very lucky for it too.

You rock girlfriend! Finally a woman who is stylish and elegantly dressed (flower wreath in hair anyone?) Intelligent, and not drama filled. And gorgeous to boot. Please do a little piece somewhere on where you get your fashion and how you think about putting clothes together. We would love to have insight into how you manage to look so amazing all the time!

Lovely change I am glad you are on the show you have class and less drama. Give love a chance you will be running all your life, Peter is not going to be perfect but something have kept you with him this long. He seem to be a good guy my mom always told her girls what you see is what you get. Don't try to change him keep being the way you are it will work. Do not base your life on somebody else who is going through a rough spot in their marriage. Marry Peter and be happy everybody need someone to love and grow old with. I see you in me I have never married now I am 58 and still waiting. My true love passed away and I am looking for him, no two people are a like. If he is taking the time to design a ring for you he really love you. Give real love a chance

Cynthia Bailey, you are the best housewife from inside to the outside. You look good, speak well and you respect your man and he respects you. Since watching the show I feel you guys (Peter and Cynthia) will be the couple we are going to enjoy watching. Good look and marry your handsome man.

A TRUE FAN, N. MACY

I like you on the show. You're not too hostile, and you seem pretty easygoing. Welcome! The only thing I do want to correct you on is the comment on the aftershow saying everybody has a weave. Nope. I've never worn a weave in my entire life. Every black woman does NOT desire to wear fake hair. I've always shivered at the idea. I'd rather style my own hair than to pack somebody else's used hair on my head.

Something is just off w/your relationship w/Peter. I guess that I just haven't had much insight into a ghetto fabulous relationship. I don't think that it will last whether you marry him or not. He seems like the cheating kind.

You MUST be my twin sister! Everything you observed and commented about at the Mother's Day dinner was EXACTLY my same thoughts. Uncanny! P.S. I love you on the show. You are so real... and sweet. Good luck to you and Peter, it's sooooooo hard to find a man who really loves you and are true to your needs. Smoochies!

Cynthia I love you on the show. You are fresh of breath air. The same old cat fighting that was going on all last season only makes for good TV for so long then it becomes ridiculous. It is nice to see your relationship with your daughter and I am excited to see what happens the rest of the season. Please don't let the fame (hmmm NeNe) get to your head and change. In the end we are all people. Some just have more money than others. Till next week.

Cynthia and Kandi. Thank you Bravo for bringing real class to the show, not the talk "I have class" You don't have class because you know how to say "i have class." Those other country bumpkins... I don't know.

You or peter didnt like when phedra made the comment of having a clean man soooooooooooooooooooooooo y would he say such a thing like that to NeNe even after you warned him bfore hand I thought it was as rude for him to say that to her in front of everyone as it was for phedra to say he was dirty for having 5 kids with just you 4 in the limo.
