Luscious Needs a Licence

Cynthia talks about her time on 'Kandi Koated Nights' and answers some of your questions. 

 

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

1. What are you looking at your watch for? Because it's on my wrist, and I can. He has a point, I saw it with my own two eyes, and it was definitely on his wrist.

2. What is my freak number? First of all, who feels like changing pee-pee sheets after sex? Second, I still believe food products "down there" is a yeast infection waiting to happen. And thirdly at the end of the day it just feels like way too much work. I would be pissed if Noelle had an "accident," and peed in the bed. How would I explain mommy peeing in the bed? 

3. I still never figured out if Dr. Muhammad (I want drop the Dr. until I know for sure) is a doctor or not. Am I the only one still confused? This is supposed to be a "yes" or "no" question, right?

4. Dogs don't bark at parked cars. I actually tested this out with my brother's dog Dusty, and it was true. As long as my car was parked, crickets. The minute I pulled off, he lost it!

5. Prove you are a woman, and I will prove I am a doctor. I have to be honest, I almost kind of like this guy for Sheree. He really pushes her buttons. But then again, I'm a Pisces, I like everybody.

6. Have I ever peed on anyone? Intentionally? Not yet, but I plan on peeing on Peter after I finish writing this blog to boost my freak number. That should raise it at least 5 points. Sorry, Peter.

7. I guess they were not a match made in heaven. Nothing like your friends showing support when your world is crashing down around you. Did someone pull down the shade?

8. Anal sex should be higher than a 7, at least a 12. I was with NeNe on this one. I say you should also earn double points and free tickets to SIX FLAGS.

9. I was going way out of my element to even go out on a date with you! What does everybody have against the Hoilday Inn? 

10. Give me back all the vacations, my labor pains, the shoes off your feet, the shirt off your back, the sausage and eggs you ate for breakfast, the pillow you sleep on at night, the cough drop I gave you when you had a cold, the stamp I gave you to mail a letter, the air inside the house you breathe. Give me that back! You betta preach NeNe, just take it all back girl.

BONUS 

The size of Mr. Luscious's (aka Mr. Bladder Infection) pee-pee. Does that thing come with a leash or papers? He should have to have some kind of permit or a license! I would have to get something in writing, somebody could really get hurt.

Q and A

Yes, Peter is Jamaican, that's the accent you guys are hearing.

Yes, Peter put the engagement ring on the wrong hand. He was crazy nervous, and I was too surprised to notice until you guys pointed it out. I have since corrected this.

Yes, Peter really does have five beautiful kids. Six including Noelle.

Yes, when I wear my hair short and spiky it is my real hair. The long hair is a weave, obviously.

Yes, NeNe and I really are good friends, and she is not interested in Peter. Trust me, all they do is argue, but she does like chocolate men. No disrespect to my light skinned brothers.

Yes, I really am from Alabama. Grew up in Tuscumbia. Shout out to all my people in Bama! Love y'all!

Yes, I really did take the leftovers home from the wedding tasting, and the filet mignon did make a great sandwich. I split it with Peter.

Yes, when I say my friend Boris, I am referring to Boris Kodjoe. Nicole and Boris a great friends of mine, and I love them both dearly. They actually helped convince me to move to Atlanta and they have since moved back to LA. Thanks guys.

Yes, Leon (Noelle's dad) was in The Five Heartbeats, Temptations, Waiting to Exhale, Cool Runnings, Cliffhanger, Women of Brewster Place, Oz, and I forget the movie he did with Tupac. There's more that I'm probably forgetting. Oh, Maddona's Like a Prayer music video, he was the black angel.

Yes, I am really going to do a beauty blog and give modeling advice. It's coming. 

Yes, I gave more than $20 at Sheree's Dancing Stars of Atlanta event. I think I speak for the rest of the girls that attended; we were not informed that it was a charity event. We just thought we were invited to watch her perform. I gave what I was comfortable giving, and if anyone wanted to give $1,000 they should have, regardless of what the rest of the table was doing. The only money that I count is mine.

Think I answered all the questions from my comments, so let me know if I left anything out.

In closing, let me introduce you guys to my BFF Kithe Brewster. We have been friends for the past 20 years, and we have been through a lot together. When I was pregnant with Noelle and had to be rushed to the emergency room because of complications, he was right by my side. Leon was in LA shooting The Little Richard Story (Oops! Forgot to list that one), and I was in NYC. He also threw Noelle's 1st birthday party (Leon and I were away working), and we were so grateful that Kithe and Lydia (Noelle's nanny of nine years) came through for us. Kithe and Noelle have always had a special bond, and they are very close today. 

Kithe Brewster is a huge celebrity stylist to the stars (just Google him, if you don't believe me), and he has made women from Julianne Moore to Heidi Klum fashionistas. He has always been there for Noelle and I, and we are fortunate to have him in our lives. He has my back and I trust him completely.

Kandi: "I'm Not Two-Faced"

Kandi Burruss weighs in on the confrontation between NeNe Leakes and Claudia Jordan.

Last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta was crazy. Let me just say, despite all the shade that was going on between Demetria and Phaedra, it was nothing compared to the argument that happened between NeNe and Claudia. First of all it was unexpected -- nobody was expecting Claudia and NeNe to get into it. But at the same time what did you expect? Something is going to pop off if you tell somebody that you can’t believe they have a brain, but I don’t think anybody was expecting Claudia to react the way she did. Yes, I did feel like Claudia got the best of NeNe in the argument, because there was a lot that was said. Every time NeNe had something to say, Claudia had a comeback for it. It was funny and hilarious, and Claudia just seemed to be saying the things that everybody has at one point wanted to say, but probably never did. The reason why I say everybody is because I look at the blogs, I see the tweets, and there have been a lot of times that people over the years have said, “Why didn’t you say that?" Or "Somebody needs to tell her this!" Or "Somebody should do that!" So all the things that people have said on Twitter that someone should have said to NeNe, Claudia said that day. And it was hilarious to me.

I see people have been tweeting me saying, "Oh you’re two-faced" -- no I’m not two-faced, because I really don’t have a very close relationship with either one of them. Both of them are cool, but I just don’t have a close relationship with either one. So if one of them says something funny, I’m going to laugh, I’m sorry. You can be mad all you want to, but if Claudia says something funny, I’m going to laugh, if NeNe says something funny I’m going to laugh -- I don’t owe either one of them anything. So it is what it is.

Some people felt like NeNe got the best of Claudia in the argument, but I didn’t feel that way. For one that argument was even longer than what you guys got a chance to see. But on top of that I felt that sometimes it seems when NeNe gets frustrated or upset with someone, her go-to thing is to talk about is, “You're broke, I have more money than you,” so I was used to that, it was nothing new to me. But the stuff that Claudia was saying was funny and she was very calm about it. I’m not a good arguer; I wish I could be as quick on my feet as NeNe and Claudia are. I’m not quick on my feet like that when it comes to going back and forth with somebody. I get angry, and sometimes it gets all out of hand for me, but for them they’re good at just going back and forth with their words. I don’t know if that’s a good thing or not, because I know NeNe has said she says things that she regrets later. But it’s of course better than someone getting violent; they just fought with words, and it was amusing.

OK enough about that, I know people have their lives, I do too. To me NeNe's funniest moments of the conversation were when Claudia left the table. When NeNe kept talking it was so funny! When she started taking about that bob, I was looking at my own hair thinking, "Well I have a bob! Wait a minute, hold on, how are you going to talk about bobs like that?" But it just was so funny, she had us cracking up with the way she kept pretending she was rolling her hair up, it was just hilarious.

But outside of that, with all the drama that was going on between the girls, I felt like having another Bedroom Kandi party was the perfect interruption we all needed. We needed something that was going to be fun, that could bring everyone together, or at least get us on the same page for once, and I feel like I was able to do that. I know people are always asking why I'm constantly talking about sex, but when you talk about sex, you always laugh or smile, because it only brings happy thoughts. That’s the one good thing you can say about that, and when I brought out some of our Bedroom Kandi products and we played the game, the Bedroom Kandi version of hot-potato, it was hilarious. But better than that it helped everybody to mend their ill feelings for a moment at least, because people who didn’t even get along with each other still had to work together to play the game, which I thought was a great thing. People were laughing and smiling -- there were no arguments, there were no side-eyes, and I felt like it was perfect. Ain’t no party like a Bedroom Kandi party, 'cause a Bedroom Kandi party don’t stop!

Anyway, so on to the bus. The bus ride went horribly. I thought that everybody was on the same page after doing the Bedroom Kandi party, but obviously not. I thought it was good that NeNe apologized, because she doesn’t normally apologize, and I thought it was a good thing for her to clear the air with everyone. But Claudia just didn’t want to accept the apology. She wanted to keep going on and on and on about why NeNe had said those things. Come on girl, can you just please just accept the apology and keep it moving? Or don’t accept the apology and be quiet. Nobody wants to keep going on about the same thing over and over again, so that was irritating to me.

But then she had to blast Porsha, which I felt was completely uncalled for. I didn’t even understand why she even had to bring that whole situation up. That’s one thing that I don’t like about a lot of the girls. It seems like they purposefully want to bring up negative things about you, to put you on blast, or to put everything out there. It’s not like Porsha was even the topic of that conversation, so I don’t know why she felt like that was the perfect time to blast Porsha. It was just really unnecessary, and that’s just how I feel about that. Who Porsha is dating or who did or did not buy Porsha's car I don’t feel had anything to do with anybody on that bus, and I didn’t feel it was necessary.

So enough of that, at least from that point on we all were able to still put our negative feelings aside and make it to Demetria’s performance. I thought Demetria did an outstanding job. That was the first time I’ve ever heard her sing, and I thought her voice was beautiful. I thought she did a good job with her performance; she had a lot of personality on stage. You guys only got to see the one or two songs that they showed, but of course her performance was longer than that, and she did a great job. I don’t know if she could be a pop star. When I think of pop stars, I think of young teens, early twenties, so I don’t know if she is necessarily a pop star, but she is definitely an entertainer, and she definitely could put out an album. I think she definitely would have a lot of fans if she had the right team behind her, and I was glad we could be there to support her. The funny thing is she didn’t even have a clue about what went on in the bus, so luckily that whole negative drama missed her and didn’t affect her performance. Thank the lord, thank the lord.

All right, until next week! Everybody please follow me on Twitter. I know you like to go back and forth on Twitter, so feel free to go on my Twitter page and go back and forth with me @Kandi. You can hit me up on Instagram @KandiBurruss and follow me on my website Kandionline.com.
