Cynthia Bailey

Cynthia's thankful to have such wonderful friends and family in her life. 

on Nov 15, 20100

Things that made me giggle, cringe, or just left me confused. Oh, and best quotes.

1. "You got to be skilled to touch this face." Sheree cracks me up.

2. "This baby is ready to climb out of my vagina." OUCH!

3. "The darker the berry, the sweeter the juice." Well, I couldn't agree more.

4. "Eat s--- and die." How do you really feel?

5. Kandi yawning ... Hmmmmm.

6. "Is this dress beautiful, or am I making this dress look beautiful?" Did I really say that?

7. Low self esteem is the one issue we don't have. Obviously.

8. Oops! Is wearing last season's Chanel a bad thing? Awww man.

9. Didn't know about the 50 cent piece. Noelle still ended up with a innie not an outie. 

10. "Ooze sex! Just don't get any on the mic." 

I hate suprises! I really do. Too much of a control freak I guess. I had no idea that Peter was going to propose that night. I had talked to Malorie and NeNe 100 times that day, and they never gave it away. I didn't know either of them could be so sneaky. Peter and I had talked about getting engaged many times, and I always said that I wanted that moment to be intimate. Just the two of us. Well, so much for that! I was truly overwhelmed that Mal and NeNe took the time to make the house all romantic for us. I mean they moved furniture and everything! NeNe just never ceases to amaze me. She is a good friend, and I can count on her when I least expect it. I hope to prove myself a worthy friend to her as well. Even though I didn't jump on Peter like a spider monkey, I was very happy that night. I was very touched by it all and felt grateful to have good friends and family that love me. Thanks Mal and NeNe and Peter, I love you guys!

My mother. My amazing mother. Where do I start? When I signed on to join "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," my mother had no idea that she would be involved in the show. She is a very private person and is not comfortable discussing her personal life with her kids, let alone with the world. The cameras made her very nervous, and she did not want to shoot with me. The only reason that you guys got to meet my Mom on the show is because of her love and dedication to her children. She is not interested in being famous, and I had to beg her to come with me and Mal to the bridal shop. I felt that for you guys to truly understand me, and my issues with marriage, you all needed to meet my Momma. I love her so much for opening up, and supporting me, and loving me. We have been through a lot together, and I will say this with absolutely no hesitation: My mother has been the only person on this earth that has been there for me my whole life. There is nothing that we wouldn't do for one another. She is my rock, my peace, and my light. I love you, Barbara Jean Morris. You have done well as a mother to me, and I will spend my life making sure I do you proud and never let you down. Thank you! Thank you! I love you.

I am running for a plane to Miami today for a three day modeling shoot, and I am trying to get Noelle set up before I go. Congrats to Noelle for making honor roll! So proud of you, baby. I am always a little stressed when I have to leave Noelle for more than three days, but I have to work and stay focused on my modeling career. Ugh! I just love her so much. Anyway, I wrote this blog super fast to make sure it got posted on time. Again, thanks for all the love and support. Your comments are welcome and mean so much to me. I am not perfect, but I am learning from my mistakes. So please be patient with me. I love you all!

Kisses! 

Cynthia Bailey & Miss Cindi B

Cynthia, Really think about it before you marry Peter. He seems to be very demanding and wants to alienate you from your friends. Think about it very hard. You have waited this long, no need to rush it now.

Cynthia I love you the most out of the housewives. I love your relationship with Peter. Both of you are real. Keep it that way and run from the cameras. Save yourself from the drama of society.

I have also been wondering why Peter put the engagement ring on your right hand; and why you didn't change it?

Ladies,

I understand your hurt but you can't let your past hold you back. Cynthia mentioned she was a control freak - so honey, the only thing you can control in this life is yourself & the choices you make. Thoughts are things that become real by speaking them into existence. Letting a fear manifest hinders personal accomplishment & growth. In essence - get over it! Claim what you want out of life.

Cynthia, from your reaction I could see total fear written all over your face when Peter proposed. To me it seems as if you're still not ready to marry and that's fine. Nobody should pressure you. However, you're not a young woman and you should probably seek counseling or therapy for your fear of marriage. You need an excellent psychiatrist for this. When you meet the right person, he helps you overcome your fear because you see so much goodness in him that it makes you feel secure to take the plunge. I don't see that you feel that way with Peter. Who am I to say but it's just an observation. And it's perfectly okay. But it's better to not get engaged until you feel completely ready!

Peter seems like a nice guy, has he been married before? Why are you afraid of committing? With your successful career you would never be stuck if things went bad.

The ring was put on the wrong hand. I hope that's not a bad sign...

Real quick question My hubby and I noticed the ring was put on the wrong hand and tried to watch your hands the rest of the show. Was it put on the left or right hand???

I so wish you the best Cynthia. I hope you, Noelle and Peter will be a wonderful happy family. I don't know how I would react with an audience at my proposal but we get what life throws at us. So I sincerely wish the best for your future.

Cynthia,

I am really enjoying you on the show. I love the relationship you have with your daughters father. It is rare these days to find a good man who is not only still there for his kids, but still has the respect and love for their mother as well. Great guy. I agree with #6, though...yeah, did you really say that!?! Confidence is great, but don't be like the other girls too much, thinking they are better than everyone else. :-]

CYNTHIA, YOU ARE AWESOME. Not only are you beautiful on the outisde, you beautiful on the iniside. You displayed a tremendous amount of strength to be open and honest about your problems. I applaud you for facing your fear of commitment and I know that you will NOT allow it to get the best of you. I am rooting for you and I know that you will NOT allow fear to be assigned to your relationship with Peter. Thank your for carrying yourself with respect, class, and dignity on the show. YOU ROCK!!!

I really don't see a problem with that because Cynthia will get to plan the wedding that she wants so let Peter have the proposal that he wants

@CLPeoples: OMG!! I thought the same thing! That comment Peter made regarding the proposal made me cringe. I think that was something Cynthia should play back because it definitely illustrates a facet of his character and personality that I would not be able to ignore. That sounded like he put his wishes/desires/wants before his fiance's. And that's sooooo not cool!

As always I absolutely LOVE your blog! I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the epsisode and reading your list of things that made you cringe....trust me girl, I had the same reaction to many of them and I find myself literally laughing out loud as I read through them. Thank you for keeping it real and for being a breath of fresh air among all that ridiculous (but yet hilarious) drama! Btw, you are right about just being the vessel for your daughter because she looks just like her Dad.

I love your lists they are hilarious. I couldn't imagine being in the company of them (your castmates). Keep bringing the class and elegance you gift the show and we will all continue to be loyal viewers. Love, love, love the energy you bring and congratulations on your engagement marriage is a wonderful thing with the right person.

The truth will set you free! So glad that you and your Mom were able to share that private moment with the viewers. I think you both set a lot of ladies free! That was so powerful and needed to be said, perfect timing! You are getting ready for the next level... Your own show!!!! Good Luck and God Bless. Tell Noelle keep up the good work, and maybe she can pick out an outfit (:

Cynthia, I think you are beautiful, humble woman and your personality is genuine. Congratulations to you & Peter, and just do it! If it is meant to be, everything will fall right into place. You have been blessed with someone who loves you and wants You, so just enjoy what God has blessed you with. Take Care.

Cynthia:

I have been with my man for 4 years. I, as well, was raised in a household where violence was not a stranger. I have come to my mother's defense once or twice. Your story touched my soul. My man and I are actively talking about getting married. Talk about triggering! Growing up in a situation like that, the lasssst thing you want to do IS have a man control you...let alone marry you. I so appreciated hearing your story. It just spoke to me on soooo many levels. I wish you and Peter (who is fine) the best.

There's no reason to feel bad about your reaction to the proposal. I'm the same way and my husband proposed in front of a room of 100+ people. I was so embarrassed! Overjoyed, but so bashful....some people are just more private when it comes to things like that.

Continue to keep it real! :)

Cynthia.......you are a wonderful addition to the show.. You have class and sophistication that the other ladies do not. (Please give Phaedra some lessons) You seem very real and down to earth, for such a beautiful and apparently successful woman. I don't think it is any of our places to judge how you reacted to being proposed to in front of the camera. Wish you all the best!

Cynthia...you are my favorite Atlanta housewife. Your clear honesty, elegance and beauty set you apart from the "jokes" that Kim and Phaedra make of themselves. I cringe for you when you are in their company and have to "make-nice" when you probably want to be anywhere else. NeeNee is a true, good friend and I'm glad you are there to support her through a difficult relationship with dumb (as in not speaking) Greg. And Sheree is just out there in a parallel self-absorbed universe. I loved the very first empire bridal gown! also the timeless taffeta!

Cynthia - First off, your so beautiful and classy. I have seen your face in tons of magazines. Your mother and sister are a wonderful support system for you. You were raised with such balance and love, it shows. You are always respectful. Its wonderful to see. You and Kandi give the public a great impression of black women. Thank you for that. Take your time in deciding about marriage. Be engaged as long as you want. Your boyfriend is mature, handsome and very sensitive based on what we see on TV. Be patient with him. He seems to want to do the right thing. But ultimately, its your life and your decision. Let love, not fear lead you. I love watching you on TV. Your so calm and balanced. Why hasnt that calm and balanced rubbed off on Nene? She is such an embarrassment. When I watch her on TV, i ask myself what has the world come to? Don't change Cynthia. Stay grounded. Thank you. Vanessa

Hey Cynthia, Congrats on Noelle making honor roll. My lil sister is book worm as well.

I think this season is the best. I love watching this tv show more than ever. NeNe, Kandi, and of course You i love the most cause you and Kandi do not cause drama for other people. NeNe has been my favorite since the 1st season so i cant turn my back on her. I hope your modeling goes great.

Love you very much Danniiboii from Bakersfield California

Your comment and Cynthia's comment "this isn't the way I wanted it" struck me as wrong. Why couldn't the proposal be the way Peter wanted it? He's getting married also. BUG UPS to Peter.

Cynthia, you and Kandi (Nene too) are my favorites. You have such a warm personality and you're a delight to watch on the show. Your fiance is such a handsome older man with a lot of swag! Honey if you don't want to marry him I know about a dozen women who will gladly intercede. I was happy to see your mother on the show because your talk with her made us understand some of your fears and hesitation where marriage is concerned. I understand where you are coming from because I feel the same way sometimes. But you have to think positive and remember that what you and Peter share is unique. Marriage is hard work so as long as you give 110% on both ends and incorporate God in your union it will be fine. I love the way you carry yourself! You're so cute but not uppity, not rough around the edges and you're not fake or 2 faced. You're just a nice down to earth and sweet woman who knows how to treat others. I'm glad you befriended Nene. She deserves to have at least one real friend who won't betray her and talk trash about her behind her back. Kudos to you Cynthia!

LOVED this week's blog. It made me want to send my mom a "just because" card. Very sweet, and you are always a pleasure to watch :)

Cynthia, I only have one question why did you only donate $20 to Sheree's events.

Cynthia, I'm probably not your typical viewer, I'm a 39 year old straight white male that loves football and somehow I'm very drawn to this show. I just wanted to say I'm a very big fan of yours. I know Bravo likes the drama but I watch to see the good in people. Kandi and you are my favorites because you are real women that are successful and independent. Kim is the worst and unfortunately she gets more undeserved publicity because she is a shallow, self centered gold digging HO! Thank you for bringing some class to the show and I hope you continue as a part of the cast.

Peter made a comment after he proposed that just struck me wrong, something along the lines of, "It's not how she wanted the proposal, but it is how I wanted it to happen". So, the proposal was more about what he wanted? Hmmm.... what does that say about what you want? Having all those people there was just akward and I felt bad for you, on what should have been a beautiful, intimate moment, just between the two of you. I wish he would have done it differently.

Please stay as elegant and as classy as you are now. Do not sink to the level that the others on that show seem to stay at, esp. Ne-Ne and Kim. I have a feeling that the others are going to try and get you to their level due to jealousy, rise above it you are truly beauty and class.

TYSM for giving your fans a regular blog even with your busy schedule. I look forward to your countdowns and I would be so disappointed if you left me hanging like the other housewives. Keep up the good work.

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR ENGAGEMENT...I hope being engaged is what you really want. Indeed, the ring is beautiful, and you make it even more so. Yes, no matter what you wear, you DO make all things look better, including this show! You are a wonderful asset to RHATL.
