Cynthia Bailey

Cynthia thinks that a tipsy "Runaway Bride" probably isn't the best marriage counselor. 

on Nov 8, 20100

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!                                                                                                    

Kisses,

Miss Cindi B

I was watching the show sunday where you was getting ready for the wedding i just knew that u may not marry peter,I always said there was something about peters eyes that just didnt set well with me he was very controlling no consideration for your feelings and especially when he closed the nightclub God knows whats best for us . I like Leon so much better.

I think you're wonderful and wish the best of the best for you in all areas of your life.

Have you ever seen the 80's movie called "Moonstruck"? In it Cher's character tells Nicholas Cage's, a baker, he subconsciously cut off his own hand in a bread slicer to keep himself from marrying a woman who he knew down deep didn't really love him. Backing out of an engagement is a much healthier way of holding out for what you really want than cutting your own hand off. I hope you always get what you really want, my dear. You deserve the best.

I wish I WISH I could know if this is Cynthia in the Slate Credit Card Commercial!! The commercial involves a pregnant woman (played by who I believe to be Cynthia) who comes home from shopping to tell her Husband that she's going to need to do a LOT more shopping...he then sees twins,....and then...TRIPLETS!! I KNOW it's her...does anyone know for sure? Thanks Cristina

Cynthia, I love watching you and Leon together. I regret that you and him did not make it as a couple...your little girl would have been so complete. I feel you have a serious problem with marriage. Your happiness is not determined by anyone else's happiness or lack thereof. You are not the master of your fate...Allah (God) is...however trusting in yourself and what your goals for a partner is within your relm. You cannot predict the outcome of a relationship even if you have all the right ingredients. What you can do is work hard towards your partnership and know what you need from that partnership to keep you vested in it. Respect and love are foremost in any relationship if either one is missing the relationship is over. Please your mistrust of yourself and your avoidance of marriage is making your mother feel that she some how failed as a parent. Please she did the best she knew how at the time she was raising you and your sister. Judge her for her intention not your perception. I brought so many outfits because you were wearing through the years...thank you for your career you made a difference in my life. I am glad you joined the cast of ATl housewives.

Cynthia Thank GOD for your grace and elegance on the show. Without you, I'd wonder if there were actually any "ladies' in Atlanta other than Lawrence!

Are you still in love with Leon? You guys seemed closer than you and Peter. Were you upset with Leon when you were pregnant with Noel? Usually, that's how you 'mark your baby' in the looks department as the older folks would say.

I was not surprised to see that you were once involved w/a soul brother like Leon. He seems to be more of your type than the "old man" that you are with now. I don't know you, but I'll bet my life that you will not go through w/this marriage thing because of how you reacted @ the proposal. Didn't appear to me that you are madly in love w/this man & wanted to be w/his wife. Instead, it appeared as if you wanted to run away if the cameras weren't shooting.

Oh & by the way.....ditch the mushroom wig. It looked gastly!!!!!

I am REALLY HAPPY for you! I understand HOW you feel. I HOPE you will overcome your fears... I was FURIOUS when I found out through another blog that you were ALREADY MARRIED. THAT is something I hate about TIMING of shows and how one sometimes will air something BEFORE we get to see it. I saw that NeNe coming a mile away with those BIG HUGS she gives your fiancee/husband. I HOPE he doesn't fall for no BS...from a woman who can't hold together her own marriage. I really have a love hate feeling toward NeNe for various reasons. I just HOPE you don't get caught up in her misery loving company attitude. She's a SERPENT girl! Beware! Congratulations on your engagement. You will make a beautiful bridge. Just don't gush over your own self...okay? Let other people do THAT.

Hi Cynthia,

I can understand your being a little hesitant about marriage. I'm single too and most of my friends have dysfunctional marriages and relations and I have too felt a little turned off too. But Peter seems like a good man and I think you'll be okay. By the way, you looked wonderful in all of the wedding dresses you tried on in one of the episodes. You would make wearing a hefty bag look elegant.

You are beautiful, inside and out. I love you and Peter. It is hopeful that black love exists. He and Leon had similar energies and I could see why both of them are part of your life. I also appreciate your friendship with NeNe. It seems like a truly genuine and sisterly bond. Keep being a light.

You are too wonderful. There is so much Phedra can learn from you. You still invited her to your home after she was so insulting to you and your fiance. I think you have class up to here... You know when to comment and when not to comment. I love that and can learn a lot from watching you. Phedra claims to have an appreciation for the arts. Photography is an art. If she really knew about entertainment and the arts like she says, she would know that you are super rich and got paid good money to help designers make even more. You should marry Peter. He is a great guy. He's educated, has a successful business but is still down to earth with a fabulous swag. When he asks, tell him yes, and allow us to see part of the wedding that we all believe in.

Cynthia,

You are a breath of fresh air. NeNe, Kandi and now you are my favorites. Otherwise I wouldn't watch those other phonies Kim, Sheree and Phaedra (what an entitled nutcase). Your right too much alcohol is ruining intelligent and otherwise diginified experiences. NeNe is absolutely correct; you have to communicate to succeed in marriage. She's also obviously very hurt right now. You need to seek counseling to discover why you are so apprehensive about marrying Peter who seems to be a perfectly great catch. Don't hurt this man because you haven't taken the time to explore your issues.

Simply Amazing that you can come and turn the entire feel of the show around! You were what the housewives were missing... class, funny but not rude, honesty, not living above you means, and true southern style! Never watch more than 2 or 3 minutes of this show until this year! Bravo for Bravo! Ratings should be up!

Cynthia, when your mom told me that you were the new addition to Atlanta Housewives I was very excited. After seeing you on the show, shows just how intelligent and together you are. I see where you and Mallory get your looks from. Your mother is a very special person and I see her in you and your sister.

Cynthia,

You are such a breathe of positive air that was brought in this season. I love the fact that you still have a strong relationship with your ex and how you seem to pull out the good parts in all of the housewives. And I have to say you look great so jealous of the body and you man! lol

Cynthina, Your daughter has a very strong bond with her father, she is definitely a daddy's girl, she couldn't stop smiling, she was lit like a christmas tree! Now how is Peter's relationship with his 5 children??? Have you met them and are they aware of your situation with their dad?? He was so quick to comment on NeNe's situation about a whole lot of shit going on. What's up with him???? He seemed to be commenting on everything someone said at your mother's day party. Is his past part of you reluctancy to say I do???? You are a beautiful lady just go with your heart. Peace,
