Cynthia was relieved Uptown closed even if it made planning the wedding a challenge.

on Jan 17, 20110

Things that made me giggle, cringe or just left me confused:

1. He needs to pull over and check the air in the tires. And probably his blood pressure.

2. I work really hard, and my iron levels are too low. In that case, can I get a B-12 IV?

3. Wine to the rescue! Really? Nooooo. What a surprise?

4. Can I get a freakout moment? What am I supposed to say? Yay? I'll just text the 200 people that took off from work, bought their airline tickets and hotels rooms, and let them know the wedding's off.

5. "It's a wig, if you curl it now it will be ready later." Kim has a valid point.

6. "Gregg doesn't tell me anything. Tell me a lie, if anything." It was so hard to keep a straight face when NeNe said this. She is hilarious, and always makes me laugh. Except when I'm on the chopping block, of course.

7. Marriages break up over finances and sex. Sex? Who's having sex?

8. You're not to bring your man, you're not to bring your friend, you're not to bring your co-worker. You're not to bring your dog. You're not to bring your cat. You're not to bring your fish...

9. "Your slave is behind you." Happy New Year! It's 2011 right?

10. "What are you going to do, strangle me?" Is that a rhetorical question?


What a crazy episode! And guess what? So is next week. Well as you can see, Peter and I are still going at it with our restaurant/wedding drama. Yes, at this point in the show, Uptown has finally closed. Peter did everything he could do to hang onto it to no avail. Can I be honest? I say good riddance! Sometimes one door has to close in order for another one to open. If God wanted Uptown to still be a part of our life, he would have made a way for us to still have it. Moving on.

The wedding is still on, but we are really facing major financial issues trying to pull it off. Why not go to the court house, and call it day right? Wrong. We have invested a lot of upfront money that is non-refundable, and at this point in the show, I really want this wedding to happen at the Fernbank with my beloved dinosaurs. We are making major cut backs and cutting any corners that we can.

At times like this I feel the most humble and blessed. I have strong faith, and I believe in this union. I know at this point some of you are ready to kidnap me in my sleep to get me away from Peter, and I thank you for your concern. Again, I love Peter and want to marry him. He is not always the easiest man to deal with, but I promise you the good outweighs the bad. I know you guys only seem to see the bad lately, but there is so much love between us. Scouts honor! Remember, you guys don't get to see everything.

Anyway, the girls are in Miami on the next episode! The girls weekend will be far from peaceful, so stay tuned! As always, thanks for all the continued love and support.

Cynthia, Keep your head up and remember don't let Peter or Nene talk you into doing something you don't want to do. I think Nene can be a good friend. She is preoccupied with her own personal issues but I believe she is a good person at heart. She is lively just like you.

I don't like the fact that Peter didn't tell you he was closing the club before hand and that he will not confide in you. You have to really be careful dealing with a man with that type of behavior. If you reciprocate he'll get the message. Stay strong and be sure to keep a nest egg on the side for you and your daughter. Dawn

Cynthia we really do not see everything that goes on but I can see that NeNe is really not a freind to you any time some on you can call a friend can say that your man is her type that can be a BIG BIG mistake as a freind then she was so fast to say that you did not have to go on with the wedding if she was that close to her wedding she would not want to let any one no she was not going on with it we are so fast to tell someone what to do but would we do what we tell other s to do. just watch her around your man if you do remand freinds. she out siad looking just so you can keep that in mind to.

I agree. If you only marry for money, your going to be unhappy, if you only marry for love, your going to miss out on other things because your head will be in clouds. Marry Peter because you its promise that you see in your future. Then work towards making things happen in the lives off all three of you. When you marry a man just for money due to your age, and background, you will miss out on everything else. Put God in Charge of your marriage, and your career, and just put the work in from there. Cut NeNe off. If she could sleep with Peter she probably do so. Just because she's a HHHHAAAATTTTEEEERRRR!

Hang in there Cynthia. You are the only classy woman on the show that have not been disrepectful to anybody.

I would agree with your comment BUT she chose to put her life in the public eye. When you do that you give up a level of privacy and open yourself up to public opinion. At the end of the day that is all that it is. If she did not want folks to comment and talk about her situation then this forum would not exist. You can't have it both ways. With the fame and spot light comes criticsm and opinion. That is the price of being on a reality TV show. We may not know what has gone on before the camera's started rolling and the decision to marry or not has already been made so some of this good and not so good advice is a moot point. But what is valid is folks rights to voice their opinions since this forum is here.

Uh, Like Cynthia said, they were not married when she loaned him the 25K. "Once you are married" yeah, but not before. Peter showed himself to be reckless at Cynthia's expense.

I think NeNe is dont want Cynthia to be happy, because she"s not happy at all. When the ladies went for there outing with Cynthia you can tell that NeNe is very jeaulous of the Ladies. Even with Kim,NeNe she wish she can do the things Kim do. NeNe dont want anyone to be happy. NeNe is not happy with herself. She always spoil everything with her loud mouth. She makes a mountain out of nothing. Things not that bad until she come around.

Hi Cynthia,

May God Bless You! You are as sweet as when He made you. Don't worry, I don't even know if you are married or not. Know this...... God Is-real......He made you and as I know watching a tv show that he LOVES your sweetness........please don't worry girl....Love is in the air..... doesn't have to come from a man......God is-real....YOUR FATHER

I agree! there is nothing wrong with Peter. He is a black man they want to handle things and dont want their women to worry or think that they cant make it happen. He didnt talk to her crazy he just didnt want her to be hurt by the whole situation. He loves her to death and you can see that plus he is FINE! (for an older guy) I love you two together...NENE on the other hand is a horrible friend and just want everyone to fail. I bet she had the wedding she wanted....she ruined your bachelorette weekend because it is all about her. Im sorry I love you but sheree was right. You are trying to be a good friend but NENE is childish and messy

CYNTHIA, WHEN IT ALL SAID & DONE, YOU MUST MAKE YOURSELF HAPPY FIRST & HAVE A PEACE OF MIND. IF YOU LOVE PETER & WANT TO MARRY HIM, THEN MARRY HIM. BUT REMEMBER, DON'T GET MAD IF IT DOESN'T WORK OUT. LIKE YOUR SISTER SAID" WAIT AWHILE IF IT DOESN'T FEEL RIGHT". GETTING IN IS SO VERY EASY. IT'S THE GETTING OUT THAT HAVE PROVEN TO BE DUFFICULT. AS FOR NENE, SHE'S PLAYING YOU LIKE AN PUPPET ON A STRING. YOUR FRIENDSHIP WITH HER IS ONLY GOOD FOR WHAT SHE CAN GET OUT OF IT. YOU CAN'T TAKE THE HOOD OUT NENE NO MATTER HOW MUCH MONEY SHE HAVE. NENE WAS RUDE TO KIM'S FRIEND WHO LET HER STAY IN HIS HOUSE, ATE HIS FOOD & SLEPT IN HIS BED. NENE IS MISSING "HOME TRAINING" (WELL!!!!!!). BUT BEST OF ALL, LOVED YOU ON THAT RUNWAY GIRL. SISTER WAS DOING HER THING!!!!! BEST OF HAPPINESS TO YOUR & YOURS.

Cynthia, I don't see anything wrong with Peter, personally. Don't listen to the naysayers--follow your heart as only you know his soul.

The only thing I want to say to you is "watch your back"! NeNe has proven to be the most unloyal person when it comes to friendships. She only has her best interest at heart and, if it's not about her, she's gonna sabotage it. I liked NeNe only in the very first season. She's a troublemaker and very phoney. I'm sure you can see what the whole world can....take care.

Hey Cynthia,

It is probably too late but I really hope you and Peter decide to slow down and postpone your wedding. If you already got married then I hope you get post marriage counseling with a real therapist. No knock on Hill Harper but if you have a church home, I would suggest you start there. The reason why I say this is because you BOTH have shown red flags to not having a good solid footing for marriage. I say this from someone who has been married almost 20 years. The red flag on your end was that you kept holding this $25K over Peter's head. Once you are married, what's your's is his and visa versa. We tend to hold things over people's heads as a way to punish them. Why punish your husband unless you are not fully vested in getting married. On his part, he clearly told you he is not going to tell you anything again. So basically you are walking into a bad communication situation. That is not a mature way for a marriage to start. Too many times we let a wedding take on a life of its own and over time its more about the wedding than the marriage. The difference is, a wedding is an event, a marriage is suppose to be for a life time, for better or worse, till death do you part. If we take the time to listen to our vows before the wedding and decide to commit to them before the wedding, you will have a better understand of how to operate once married. Good luck to you both. It can work out but you both have to do some heavy lifting to make it work. It starts with putting the marriage in Gods hands cause no matter how bleak it may seem, if you give it to God, God can do all things but fail you.

Hold up People marriage is sacred please let be respectful, I unerstand you all want to put your two cents! But, like Ms. Bailey has stated you do not see everything she has being with Peter longer than the show has aired, it really isn't your business lets have a lot of respect she is not where she is by accident God places people in your life for a reason, people love to grab on to anything without even knowing all the facts, I believe in black marriages and having God first . Don't try to discourage someones decision have respect if you cant say anything nice please shut up! cynthia please keep the faith and know this too shall pass, I hope you have the best wedding you have planned for you and Peter. God Truly Bless your Union.

Cynthia I know that you have already married Peter and I hope that you two have a long, lasting and loving marriage. All these people have comments about your life and who you should love and marry but they don't really know you or him. They see you two on a show for about 2 months and have the audacity to give their unsolicited opinions about something as important as your marriage. You did what was obviously in your heart and I wish you both the best.

NeNE need to come down her nerve is very BAD when you don't have a good marriage in your life you are not a happy preson and she is not a happy. if she have a good marriage I beleave she would be a very sweet person so she is not happy so she will make everybody around her very under happy like she is under happy. with her marriage look at the T.V you can clear see that but I hope the Best for NeNE she don't have a good chil life no mother love in her life and no father love in her life. her annt love her but this is not like your on mother alot kid's is like that we just have to pray for people now.the day.s and time and also you have to be happy with your self she is not look at her just pray for her?

Thank GOD!!! I'm glad to see someone has some sense!! I mean really! We don't know the whole story. Bravo's job is to bring the drama so they get viewers. So what we see is not the truth. For instance, in Kandi's blog she mention in the interview with NeNe and Jermaine the news gave her flowers and said "it was cause they were not paying her." and that's why Kim said she was intern. There is a lot of editing going on and we have to keep that in mind. I think Cynthia and Peter are great together and I think Peter loves her more than anything. Not just her money... cause she ain't got none either. If she had what most of these viewers think I doubt she would be stressing about the finances for the wedding. LOL!

Just saw the Miami show. You looked amazing and were just as poised on the runway as you seem to be in every day life. Congratulations to you and your beautiful family!! I hope you can do what I do with the catty comments of these ladies... in one ear and out the other. Hopefully they can see how foolish, or hateful, they sound while they're watching now. SO glad you joined the show!!!

OMG Cynthia you are magnificent! You are so polished and composed even with jealous haggards like Phaedra. Please blog on Miami because I'm watching it now. Your body is GORGEOUS. Do you know I would kill to be that long, lean, AND still have a butt! Phaedra is sooooo jealous because I did not see cottage cheese... I saw a firm, round butt! Ignore the jealous cows. I like NeNe and she used to be my fave but seeing how she did you with the 'friendship contract' I think she is one of those borderline friends. She'll like you one minute and diss you the next.

I know this is television. But Cynthia PLEASE stop telling women all of your business. ESPECIALLY NE-NE. You are off to a challenging start in your relationship as is. Best advice...Keep it between you , your future husband, and God.

Cynthia, Congrats to you and Peter! Marriage is work and bliss. Just try and have more of the later. You two make a gorgeous couple. The photo in Essence...stunning! NeNe makes me crazy...she has been a source of pain since Season 2. You are a genuine person but don't let her "never take responsibillity for her own actions" self cause you to not see her manipulating situations. Kim is a hoot! Love her, Kandi and you. You rocked that runway!

Cinthia you are a beautiful women inside and out. Although Peter doesn't come off that good on the show I'm sure he is a good man if you are with him. His buisness that I'm sure he loved went under. That would send any person off the deep end. I'm sure it was hard for him. Hopefully his next venture will be a successful one. Nene is jealous of you. Stating you have junk in the trunk. Get rid of her she is not a friend and she behaves like a bully. Good luck with everything.

you should not marry Peter. Love is not in your eyes girl and it is not i his eye either you have to look at that. He is not your soulmate and i know you feel that in your deepest of deepest heart. He is a nice guy but he is not your soulmate girl. WISH YOU THE BEST i will be watching

Cynthia, Cynthia, Cynthia. Darling Cynthia,as a 45-year-old women, who has been married for 20 years,I can honestly tell you, at our age finding love and a man who is financially secure is rare. You may get good sex, you may get true love,but finances are a bit more tricky. If my husband and I divorced, there is no way in hell at my age, would I marry for love,unless the finances also were in check. Baby at your age, with your career, you need a man with stability, Peter does not have that. Cut you loses, live with him, if you must, have sex,but do not marry him.

You need to run, not from your husband to be, from NeNe!! That girl has lost her mind, she is crazy. She loves causing trouble. I watched last week and last nights episode twice and still don't know what set NeNe off!!! If I were you I would rethink you friend pact!!

You are a very beautiful person. When I first saw Peter I thought he was your father or a family friend, he looks old, real black and the white beard makes him look like a grandpa. How does he support 5 children from previous relationship(s)? I am darn if I married a man with 5 kids unless he is a millionaire. He comes across as arrogant and somewhat disrespectful when it comes to women giving their opinion. Best of luck but love don’t pay bills. I hope his pockets are not continuing to be short being that the show was taped in 2010 and we are now in 2011. You are a beautiful persona and could have done much better than that. I don’t see how you give head to something like that or anyone. Im not that type.

Well Cynthia and Peter did get married, but Cynthia you pointed out several times that Peter owes you money and you bailed him out. How can a marriage survive when it starts out with financial issues? I hope love can conquer all in your case.

Ms.Cindi B...aka Ms.Cindi Fierce! Girlfriend, you strutted your stuff down that runway in Miami! You were the only HEAT in that show. Keep doing your thing honeychild. Regardless of other peoples stupid remarks, you are a SuperModel! I hope you continue to get bookings beyond what you can strut! In regards to getting married (which we have to wait until next week to find out if you ran away or said I do), I have been married for four years and I was 42 when I did it. I acted in haste! Girl, as I type this note to you, I am packing the rest of my things. Peter probably is a great man, heck, we all have issues, but to get married with issues unresolved, will only lead to disaster. I would rather you and Peter wait until your financial issues are in order, then get married. The love you say you have for one another will sustain you. Just think about it! Oh, NeNe is your friend. Alot of people can't deal with her Tell It Like It Is attitude. I hope everything works out for you.

You are such a jewel. I understand how you feel about Peter. He is oh so hot, successful, smart, funny....and a bad month doesn't warrant kicking him to the curb! You are so considerate and kind...why do you befriend Nene? She takes but never gives. I hope you give some of the other women an opportunity to be close as you did Nene. God bless. You're beautiful inside AND out.
