Cynthia Bailey

Cynthia thought the Miami trip was a drama-free blast.

on Nov 14, 20110

Bienvenidos to Miami! NeNe invited Kandi and me to Miami for an all-girls weekend, and it certainly was just that. Literally an ALL girls weekend! What happens in Miami, stays in Miami right? Well, not really, but we will get to that later.

Here we go! I have been extremely busy with married life, motherhood, and opening up The Bailey Agency, so I welcomed the beautiful sands of South Beach with open arms. I could not wait to jump into my two-piece and spend some time with the girls. We had a blast! There was very little drama, and we got along great. Kandi was cool, and I think we all genuinely had a good time together. We all connected on this trip as smart business women who are making big things happen in our own way. It was a weekend of delicious cocktails, great food, clubbing, and "girl power" at its finest. Lots and lots of "girl power"!

I'm glad to hear you had a great time in Miami. I'm sorry you had to come home to a husband who acts like a petulant child. He's full of balloon juice.

Cynthia, Your a special lady and I hope Peter realizes how lucky he is !

You handle situations calmly and you are not confrontational in a hostile manner. When you speak you like to be heard which means you are not going to scream in hopes of being heard. This does not mean you do not have a backbone. What is funny to me is that everyone has spoken about you behind your back and has never confronted you... so that tells me how much backbone they have... As for NeNe, I have seen you be there for her when no one else has. I commend you for that. So in my opinion, you are her support system at the moment and you may be her only support system and that is the grace God has given you and enable you to do. With that said, you are NeNe's backbone. Stay in the background. Cause having the discussions about why and what someone said and did will always get twisted and people only hear what they want to hear, see what they want to see, and believe what they want to believe...

Cynthia, I am starting to lose a lot of respect for your character. I specifically used the w0rd character because that is a role you play. Have you ever thought that maybe the other women do not like Nene because she is not a nice person? If you continually kiss her butt, one of these days you will have an independent thought of your own and she will cut you up too, figuratively speaking of course. Best of luck Cythina, I have a feeling with Peter you are going to need it.

Cynthia, You keep doing you. You are your own person and just a good friend to NeNe. I think the other ladies are haters. They talk junk about everything even when you and Peter got married. I guess that's why the two main one Kim and Sheree don't have a man. I think Sheree is the biggest hater and how she going to get mad, because Peter told the truth? She's not cute at all and I don't know who lied to her. She is really her biggest fan. So you are happy stay happy and tell Kim to stop looking for dollor sign and look for true love. Hint to them two...Money want make you happy. If it did why isn't Sheree with her husband? She really need to find a man and not a fake doctor. You are a good person and I love you for that.

So sorry Cynthia, but I find you boring and Peter is such a JERK! I don't really enjoy watching either of you on the show. You add nothing to the show and Peter always has a bad attitude. He was out of line at Kim's baby shower and is very lucky that Apollo didn't punch him out! You need to wake up before it's too late!

In case you didn't get this by watching the conversation with Peter and Leon, I just wanted to point out to you that Peter's comment, "if it don't work out, it don't work out" (in my opinion and by the look on Leon's face, his opinion too)-this statement meant that if the relationships didn't work out, that is okay- in other words, ya'll can break ties as a family and that is cool. re-watch it, be honest with yourself, and please don't argue with your sister and momma over a dude that is fine with removing them out of your daughter's life. start to be honest with yourself, Cynthia. Your family's behavior (whether you feel it was appropriate or not) was purely out of concern for you and Peter's behavior is purely out revenge for himself- although he is older, he is not thinking with a mature man's mind. And, that is why the conversation with Leon became awkward- even he saw this with the last comment your husband made. Most of all, please don't let Peter succeed in taking your family out of you and your daughter's life. You may not see it right now, but you and her especially your child should have family for foundational enduring support.

Whether if anyone thinks Cynthia has a backbone or not, the bigger problem I see, is Peter. Ever since the first season, I've seen him as being someone you can't reason with. I thought the argument between him and Apollo was unnecessary and inappropriate no matter what the occassion was. Not only did he not apologize to Phaedra or Sheree, but he walked out of the baby shower without even saying a word to the guest of honor. He owes Kim and Kroy an apology.

@ Mrs.NolaBelle:

"To hear Kim and all of you tell it, unless you are ready to get loud, ghetto, and talk about everyone all of the time, you have no backbone."

Thank you for sharing!

You are so CLASSY! Keep it up, Cynthia and you're going to be one everyone's favorites (If not already).

Really ? As an Alabama girl myself I really enjoy watching u on the show . U r such a sweet woman but what does Kim being with a married ( seperated ) man have anything to do with u not having a backbone ?

I watch RHOA am I am not a fan of anyone in particular. To me it is all entertaining. It amazes me how adults here are jumping on the bandwagon of the ladies on the show. But that aside, for those who have jumped on the Kim "no backbone" bandwagon, well... Really?

Just because Cynthia isn't loud, and ready to jump in every messy situation, doesn't man that she doesn't have a backbone. It means that she carries herself in such away that her being "common" isn't necessary for her presence to be known, and she is a lady. Just because I have a friend who is loud, and involves herself with mess, does not mean that I am too "scared" of her, and that is why I hang with her. When you tone it down it is much easier for you to see, what truly lies within others. To hear Kim and all of you tell it, unless you are ready to get loud, ghetto, and talk about everyone all of the time, you have no backbone.

Well, I would say that I am a very quiet and reserved woman, I always have been. I don't take part in drinking, getting loud, and being ghetto. I guess that would mean that I don't have a backbone. Anyone that has known me for some time knows, that if you cross that line with me, whether you be young, old, male, female; you'll get your a** handed to you, and I won't say a word before I do it. That is why people who know me, know better than to drag me into their bull.

Now everyone has different personalities, and I can respect that. There are some people who are loud, and loose. That's cool. I have a do you attitude when it comes to living. Be who you are. But that doesn't mean that I need to be anything like you. That also doesn't mean that I have to have something against a person whose personality differs from mine.

Some of you women reading this really need to settle down, be quiet, think, and reflect about who you are, and the type of WOMAN you want to be. Age, money, cars, homes, children, men, friends, loudness, and cattiness do not a woman make. Be about something worthwhile, and you won't have to say a word to make your presence known. You will be talked about, that will never change in this life; but once you reach this level, those talking will be too far beneath you to be relevant.

Boooo....that Kim jab (respecting marriage)came from one of your twitter followers. You didn't even think of that and why was that even necessary?? Kim only voiced what many others are thinking or saying without the luxury of a camera being there. Think about why people are saying you are a Nene follower or have no backbone....because of what you put out. You were my favorite but the jabs lack the class you're known for. Leave it alone and let people see for themselves.Especially in your interview, Kim never bragged about having money. Why are you taking jabs at Kim so much? This behavior is not what I'm used to seeing. I hope its not to prove that you are a strong person and that that wasn't shown last season. We really, really liked you last season.

I hope your friend Nene reads your blog. It would be very helpful to her with all of her shouting and talking about EVERYBODY. Its just a matter of time before she will turn on you.

Hi Cynthia, LOL@ there is not a man for miles. definitely a girls weekend. you guys looked like you had great time.

Ms. Jones

This was a good blog to read... But, let's be real here...you are BORING only thing that is good about your story line is you are scared of NeNe, oops I mean "friends" with NeNe (ahem..LOL) and your sister and mother doesn't like your husband, and that's about it. You are BORING! Word of advice, if you don't bring the drama soon honey BRAVO will let you go. It's only so much of kissing NeNe behind one person can take. If you say you have a back bone use it don't talk about it, be about it.

Cynthia YOU do have a backbone and you are STRONG. To go through that mess with that wedding and still hold your head high speaks of someone who is strong. Nene's relationship with you should never define your character as a person. Kim is someone who has done little and gained a whole lot, which is her blessing. However, your career speaks for itself. Her character speaks for her. PLEASE don't let the ongoing renditions of "I'm better than everybody else because I am xyz" bother you. Sometimes people are haters and they will continue to do hateful things. Let that GO! You are so much better than that. Little secret to you, we all have a friend who is either outspoken, crazy, or a serial mouth smasher. We are their friends and we stick by them because we know there is so much more to them than just one or all of those characteristics (LOL). You keep being a good friend and doing you.

Cynthia, If special moments are reserved for family and close friends then why did you show up at Kim's shower five hours late, no gift and a husband who was ready to pick a fight ? Why was he so interested in Lawrence's pumps ?

Sometimes I think you play the part of an ostrich with you head stuck firmly in the sand so you don't have to really see what''s going on around you. You try so hard to be nice. Sometimes nice doesn't work with some people. Be truthful and true to yourself, stop trying to be everybody's friend.

Cynthia I have to agree with you about speaking negatively about other adults and using profanity in front of children. When I was growing up, my mother never spoke negatively or gossiped about other adults in our presence and I don't do that now. Leave the gossip for your girlfriends and girl-time.

LaineyLainey

Practice what you preach. Your blog is anti-gossip, yet you perpetuate gossip in your blog (something Kim did in her past). Everyone else seems to have moved on. You should, too. I do agree with you about your gorgeous cheekbones, though.

Nene will go off on you soon, she has the worst mouth of ALL the housewives show. Either you are stupid, or Nene has loaned you a little of her Richness, or you are thinking you may need to borrow some from her. With the way peter is so jealous of you I am surprised he let you go with nene the most unintelligent person on tv. You talked about adult things(toys) as much and in fact you brought up a lot of nasty talk while you were in FL....You have no room to talk about anyones bad mouth when you and nene bad mouth atlanta grump who yelled and screamed at Star, Hope, Latoya, Dionne. NOT GOOD projection for ATL.

but you made a comment about kim dating married men in your interview that was mean,and you havent even know her so wouldn't that be the pot talking about the kettle im just saying,and you really dont know her

Viewer1234

did you give this same advice to Nene .. she has the worst mouth of all.. That is the reason we all think you dont have a backbone because you would never tell Nene it is so easy to be nasty..or anything else you said about the others.. Your jab about kim and a married man is old news .. She was wrong no doubt but lets hope Nene doesnt date someone while she is married or else I am sure you will have some words for her..not.. They arent the only ones that dont think you have a backbone with Nene.. we all think that way.. even your blog is all about her...

Cynthia, you are a breathe of fresh air and it's good to see you as the mild mannered person you are. It is real that you want everyone to get along. Being in real world, you know that is not possible. You and NeNe are good friends, hold on to that and keep it moving, I love you girl`

Cynthia, Wow, that was the most uplifting blog I have read from any housewife in a long time. I agree with everything you said. I, too, was disturbed by the harsh comments in front of the children at Kim's party. Did they not have anything happier to talk about....but I do think Sheree is a s*#@ stirrer. Best to you.

Get a backbone Cynthia. Honestly, it looks like ALL of your comments are to put nene on a pedastal. She has you on a pedastal because she dont have any friends AT ALL. She is too high at the top. . . remember. . . but as bad as she insulted you last year, you look like a nut to have nothing but kind words about her. . .
