Things that made me giggle, cringe, or just left me confused:
1. Has anyone else picked up that 99% of our gatherings seem to involve wine, champagne, or a cocktail of some kind? Let's not forget Kim's pit stop to grab a beer during her morning jog! Um, can you say intervention?
2. Who stays at the Holiday Inn? Pretty much anyone in America (or the world for that matter) who needs a hotel room and the St. Regis is not an option.
3. Screaming like a wolf and pooping on a table. I hope I am tardy for that party.
4. Phaedra saying that no one has a job except for her? Believe it or not, modeling is a job (actually a career), and guess what? We even paid for it! Just like lawyers. How crazy is that?
5. Curtains in the recording studio. Hmm, do you think Beyonce is requesting those?
6. Gregg thinking that Nene and I were throwing him shade. My compliment was sincere, and I honestly thought Gregg looked great. I just really wanted to laugh and have a goodtime. Buzz kill.
7. Yard sale tip: clean out your drawers before the sale. (Especially if you are a celeb). You don't want to give your customer more than they bargained for.
8. When I told Nene in her kitchen that Gregg still loved her and her response was, "How the hell you know that?" Hilarious. I was caught so off guard with that comeback, and every time I watch it, I just crack up. Note to self: Don't drink champagne all night and decide to be a marriage counselor, especially if your nickname is the RUNAWAY BRIDE.
9. I got goose bumps when Lawrence sang for Kandi. Glad they found each other.
10. Go ahead and say it: Noelle looks just like her dad right? I was just the vessel.
This episode was important to me because it is the first time that you guys get to meet Noelle's father, Leon Robinson. Noelle is without question the love of both of our lives. Unfortunately, things did not work out for us as couple, however our bond as parents is unbreakable. There is so much love and respect between us, and Leon is a wonderful father. The relationship they share is beautiful, and she is definitely "daddy's girl." We are very proud of Noelle and work hard to live up to the honor of being her parents.
I am over whelmed with all the positive comments that I received from last week's blog. For all of those that were prepared to hate me, thanks for giving me a chance. Until next week, WATCH WHAT HAPPENS!

Cynthia, you are amazing!! I was sure that the beautiful model joining the cast was going to be a pure diva b!#%h but you have proven me so wrong!! You are kind, funny, respectful, and so NORMAL!! I'm proud to share the state of Georgia with you! Maybe you could teach some of the other castmates (Phaedra??) what being a true lady is all about! Look forward to "watching what happens"!
I guess Greg was guilty about something he thought you and NeNe were talking about him you gave him a compliment. I don't know what's Phaedra problem I know you probably work as hard as she does. And I love it you and Noelle father gets alone so good.
Thanks for being so timely with your blogs! For the record, I much prefer your to-the-point blogs rather than the "dancing in the rain" nonsense.
The more I see you on screen, the more I think you are the most sane one in the group. My mouth dropped when I saw Leon on screen. I'm a fan...love his work. It's very nice to see an honest relationship between two people who aren't a couple yet still puts their child first...the best to you all.
You are the best housewive of the entire HOUSEWIVES! You are the greatest blogger of all Housewives. I just hope as a dear friend you can bring some CALM to Nene. She is really over the top with everything she does. I think she was totally show boating when she spoke to her husband with her fingers/hands all over his face. He was a true gentlemen to get up and let her act childish.
Cynthia, you're a gracious woman and a wonderful mother! You and Leon live the truth that "it's all about the child" when a couple splits. And, I envy the terrific rapport you and Leon share. Your beautiful daughter will grow-up with the security of her parents' love and cooperation for her. As a fellow single mother, I applaud y'all.
Love you, love everything about you. You are so classy and beautiful, you're Bravo's Audrey Hepburn. Great job showing that even if you can't make it work with the father that the two of you share an awesome responsibility in parenting your child.
Nice to see someone on these shows who is not delusional and I think you have a great sense of humor. Great show. Look forward to seeing more from you.
Cynthia , I just love your personality . I think that you so humble , graceful , and clearly not caught up in the drama . I just loved you on Live with Andy last night . Kepp being you and stay true to yourself and stay away from all that madness because it is not healthy .
Luv U! A great addition! Beautiful, smart, great personality etc.... Hope it works out for you and Peter! You seem very real!
You are a doll! You add such a calmness to the show! I look forward to your blogs (insight each week) Giiiiiirl i didn't know that Leon Was your baby's daddy (LOL) No Being serious that is awesome, you guys appear to be great parents. You had the craziest look on your face while listening to Phaedra lie about her due date. anyway Love ya! Can't wait til next Sunday!
What a great mom you are!! And a breth of fresh air on rhoa. thanks for keeping it real. a lot of folks stay at holiday inn. Come on now not too long ago Sheree was kicked out of her home. Forleclosure like so many others these days. too many women come on these shows. thinking they are something they are not. You and Kandi ARE celebrity outright. Without RHOA and yet are the most down to earth of the bunch. Which truly makes you a class act!
OMG I can't believe you have a child with LEON, I have found that man to be so sexy for DECADES. I am so happy that the two of you are so close and keep it real when it comes to your relationship with each other and your daughter, can only make her a better person HUGE KUDOS! I hope you follow your heart and marry Peter he really loves you and although you come across as a strong independent woman you need him in your life. Keep doing what you do, I enjoy watching you your so much more normal then the rest! Oh and on the ocmment about only job, why do people think being a model is easy, I know it takes dedication and brains to make modeling a career!!
Cynthia, you and Kandi continue to be my faves although I still got love for all the Atlanta Houswives! You are the epitome of elegance and confidence. You don't have to insult or put anyone down and that is a wonderful expression of you. God bless and keep on! I do follow you on twitter also! You are too funny!
I love the fact that the ATL girls seem to be in a happy place and are getting along fairly well this year. That constant pickering in the past was exhausting.
I saw the show last night and later saw What Happens. You looked gorgeous. I like you because you bring peace, harmony, you are humble and understanding especially to Nene who at that time needed that. You are a positive person. Please continue to be this way.
God Bless you, Noelle and Peter,
Yolanda Garcia Berdecia San Juan, Puerto Rico
I think u fit very well with the ladies of Atlanta. And I love daughter dad very good actor.Love him in five hearts beat and. In the plays too. And think u and Peter make a cute couple. Keep up the good work with ur daughter.
No one should be giving marriage advice after champagne, regardless of whether you're a runaway bride or not! haha Your blogs are the best!!
You are the absolutely most down to earth of all the ladies and by far my favorite. I love your positive, funny energy. I believe that people are in our lives for a reason and although NeNe and Greg were or are going through a rough time, it helps you focus on what it is that you truly want in your own relationship. You're trying to be a good friend to NeNe so protect yourself emotionally and proceed with caution. When people are in pain, sometimes they lash out at the very people that try to help them. All of your points were very true. I don't know what Phaedra's problem is however I wish she would get over it and move forward.
out of ALL the housewives shows you are my absolute FAVORITE (kandy is a close second!) !! you are so down to earth- real- and BEAUTIFUL inside and out!! so happy to have people like you and kandy on these shows!!
Cynthia, You are not only extremely smart and witty but you seem to have the best heart I've seen on TV for some time now. I pray all continues to be well with you and yours! God bless.
Oh my gosh! As soon as Leon came on my scream I yelled at the tv COOL RUNNINGS!!! I know he's been in more recent stuff then that but I LOVE him in that movie and it was very cool seeing him on the show. You guys really do seem to have a genuine healthy relationship raising your daughter together, Bravo!!!
Every week I love you more and more....you seem very down-to-earth and sweet yet you still always call it like you see it! So glad your a housewife!
Your relationship with Noelle's father gives so much hope to many divorced families... Thank you for showing us love can conquer all.
You are fresh air to the show. You bring a balance to the show and the comments you make crack me up. You can only be friends at a distance with some of the house wives. Nene, I think is listening, but have not absorb what is being said to her as a friend. She will survive as you being the run away bride. If you are not ready, there has to be a reason. But if he is the true love of your life, you will do the right thing. As for Noelle and her father (Leon, WOW!) in having a close relationship is great and that you have that strong connection as being strong parents to her will never be broken. Keep up the work on the show. You are one of my favorites.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE you on the show. Not only are you a fabulously fresh addition to the show, you come across as smart and funny--characteristics not stereotypically associated with a fashion model. I love reading your blogs and I think you and NeNe are perfect foils for each other with her larger-than-life personality too (I mean that most positively--I LOVE her too). Phaedra is....interesting. I can't wait to "watch what happens".
The level of what is really important in your life is so uplifting...rarely does someone speak of what an honor it is to be someone's parent. You are such a role model for all single parents. Unfortunately, not many people have the insight to change their life in order to be responsible for someone else's and you certainly have shown that by not repeating the mistakes made before you, there is a chance to be who you were really meant to be. Showing the bond and respect between the two parents should be something all mothers and fathers should aspire to...you both have proven that it can be. I hope that Bravo will consider a spin-off show with you mentoring others on showing young girls and guys that a lot of effort and hard work can bring about a better life by just simply giving oneself respect. All things are possible, if we stay steady and want to create improvement in ourselves. Beauty begins from the inside and you truly shine with class, poise and grace, not to mention how outwardly beautiful you are. Have a chat with Kandi, she is going down a slippery slope and it is not too pretty. Bold vulgarity begets disrespect...she is better than that, she is talented and does not have to ride the trashy train to earn a good living. NeNe is so very funny...needs to clean up her mouth in order to set a better example for her son. She knows better.
im glad youre on the show and you look good and you seem very nice, damn leon look fine as wine and he hasnt aged a bit...WOW YOU AHVE A DAUGHTER TOGETHER...WOW..is that his only child?
You and Leon are still so much in love its oozing from your pores! I understand that sometimes things dont work out...but let it be known that Stevie Wonder can see that you were beaming next to that man. He flies down 3 to 4 times a month to see his daughter right??? Theres some men that live in town that dont see their kids that much. Old Peter better watch out---because he's a smooth cat in his own right...But he cant hold a candle to Leon...just sayin...
Cynthia, I think you are my new favorite Housewife of Atlana! I love the way you blog, cracks me up- you point out all the goofy stuff I wish your castmates would realize. Also, Phedra's comment about your neighborhood was totally rude. I also live in a 'regentrified' urban area, and love it! I get some of the same reactions from friends thinking the 'bargain' burbs are better, makes no sense! Your house looked lovely!
I agree, when I saw Noelle's father I was shocked as well. It tool me back to when I was 10 year old and saw the movie cool runnings. You two are both so good looking, it's no wonder you've made a gorgeous child together. You two make a perfect example of how ex's can come together as friends. My ex didn't believe that was possible, you're an example of how it should be. Love Ya!
You were blessed with a head for reason. You are a good friend for Nene.....she needs your calm composure. I ditto all the other ladies who enjoy your grace.
I LOVE you. Week after week i fall more and more in love with you. You are so beautiful and smart and such a positive influence on the show. When I first seen you were going to be on the show I have to be honest, I had a close mind to you (because wanted lisa on the show) but now you are MY FAVORITE!!! You are a really strong black woman who doesnt have to show off and go out of character to keep us entertained like some of your castmates. Keep being you and I as well as many other will keep loving you. I cannot get over how beautiful you are OMG i jus love you so much lol. Oh yea and the relationship you and Leon have is AMAZING!! You showed a lot of people that you can still have a very close relationship with there "baby daddy" because it is the child that comes first. I LOVE YOU AGAIN lol. And i also absolutely LOVE your blogs. Thank you Cynthia you are just so amazing, cannot wait for next week show. Love you!!!!
I really have grown to like you so much. As previously stated on your blogs, please continue to keep it classy. You are a true inspiration to the RHOA and sticks and stones may break your bones but I see "words do not get to you at all"
Cynthia, your humility is refreshing! With all of your successes, you have not lost who you are. It is obvious that your family is your highest priority. It is obvious that you and your daughter's father are very special to each other, but it is good for separated parents to not be bitter and keep living. And yes, Lawd, you were merely a vessel because Noelle is clearly her daughter's father. (Btw, did you get her name from Leon being spelled backwards?)
You are absolutely the nicest, most down to earth, beautiful celebrity on that show. You have a wonderful spirit.
Cynthia! I think your blog up there was just too funny! Everything you said was right on and true and funny! I like you and hope you decide to stay with this show!
You are such a great addition to the Real housewives franchise!
I love your personality and your blogs are always great! =)
