Cythia didn't have a problem with NeNe being late.

on Dec 6, 20110

Welcome to Bar One! This is Peter's new business venture. I am so proud of him. Last year losing Uptown was tough, but as you can see by the grace of God, we are moving forward. So many entrepreneurs have lost businesses because of the recession. Peter's spirit was broken, but he still had faith in himself. He did not throw in the towel, and he got right back in the ring. I applaud him for that. Bar One is doing great, and Peter works very hard every day to keep it that way. I love you, baby. It's not how you start, it's how you finish. Go, Peter!
   
On Bar One being in the hood:

Bar One is located in the Grant Park area in Atlanta. When did Grant Park become the hood? Oh, when Bar One opened up there of course.

Cynthia, "lady do you" everyone on the show has their own chosen "circle" but they want to dwell on the fact that you and Nene get along.If that is your friend they should respect that...period. I don't know why Sheree wants to comment on Nene being late she needs to check herself on Lisa's fashion show(remember that) At least you have the class to include everyone and show up to their events,(even though they always talk about you and I do mean always!) It amazes me how Sheree, Kim and Phaedra talk about everyone but get really offensive when they are attacked! Keep sprinkling your sugar and moving forward!!!!

Cynthia,

I think you're a very classy and intelligent woman. I do see some weakness in you and I think that's what the other ladies see. I don't think they actually have major issues with you, but maybe some concerns. I do think Peter is a bit much at times and I do see you kind of back down when it comes to him. Peter is an aggressive person and I think he can be a little intimidating at times. From what I see on televison the relationship with you and Nene is all good (I guess). I don't think you agree with everything Nene says or do, but you won't dare say anything about it. Nene is the more assertive one in you guys relationship and that's okay. As a real friend you have to be honest with them. Nene is for Nene and no one else. Nene,Sheree, and Kim have been friends for a long time and now look at their relationship. Nene likes to be the one in control in her relationships especially now that she's made a name for herself. I by no means am knocking her for her hussle because I applaud her for that, but when it changes you for the worst it's not a good thing. Nene doesn't have friends that stand up to her or challenge her and that's where you and Diana comes in. Think about.... AGAIN I do like you, but you need to observe the relationships around you. Don't let people take advantage of you.... Mallory is your sister and she'll always be there for you. She loves you and I promise you she's not trying to hurt you or your relationship.

I get that you realize that this show does not define your career and your life. It shows by the way that you try and stay neutral and always put a neutral and positive spin on your marriage andfriendship with NeNe.Emotions that we may have seen you express in last season, are restrained and glazed over in your responses this season. You can't tell me that there wasn't a conversation had by you and Peter about the amount of your business that is to be expressed and shared on this show this season.

You are reserved and there is a desparate look to your responses that wants everything to work out well,so that Peter isn't mad, NeNe doesn't go off (because you aren't that close to the other women) and so that your family isn't right about their doubts about your relationship/marriage.As long as Peter is doing fine, then life will be a shade of Peachy, but if things don't work out in his world; you know that his natural tendency to handle things less than kindly towards you , will be present again. Edginess and moodiness are a fine line.

Good luck, talking from experience

Congratulations to Peter and yourself with Bar One! Sounds like business is booming, great news considering this economy and these times. Well done! I seen all the tongue in cheek puns I could see, ouch! I do however have to say, if you and NeNe are so close, and love each other and are great friends/family......why is she expensive??? Personally if I was in her shoes, I would never charge a friend, and two just five minutes of time is all she could afford such good friends? Please! I wasn't and still am not a Ne Ne hater, but to see all your again punful remarks, and end it with how close you are, it just might of burned a bit. *shrugs* Best of luck to you and Peter Cynthia, I have always adored you.

Love, love, love your blog..I guess some people are new to your blogs. This has been Cynthia's style of blogging from day one, I love it.

I don't understand why people are having a problem with your friendship with Nene..opposites attract. Like Nene said, you guys hardly see each other outside of filming; you are both busy people. Forget about these folks that really don't know you guys outside of watching the RHOA. Just keep on keeping on..

Cynthia,

You give the impression that you are classy, but it "seems" like an act. You can tell how a person truly is by the choices they make. And your choice of a man steeped in the "hood" as a husband speaks volumes.

Why do people keep saying you only say things in your blog as if the ladies are actually talking about you to your face? What would getting mad at Nene being late do? And STD she IS a supermodel, google it. Cynthia stay beautiful inside and out rise above the nastiness the others are showing.

LRT said, "Why comment about how much of her time you can "afford"? You make it sound like she charged $$ for being there. I hope that was a joke, otherwise, it speaks volumes about where she values you, below a paycheck."

TO: LRT - Cynthia was responding to a comment one of the "hater housewives" (I think it was Phaedra), said regarding Nene being late to the Bar One event. Suggesting that 'Peter & Cynthia got the amount of time from Nene that they could afford'. It was a mean dig and so Cynthia responded to it in her blog.

Anyway, Phaedra sure does a lot of hating for someone who claims to be disgusted by people who do all the hating in "haterville". She uses that line out one side of her mouth, while running someone down out of the other side of her mouth. She full of it!

Have no idea what you see in NeNe. Why would she even be involved in Bar One's opening?

Well of course Cynthia you didn't have a problem with NeNe showing up late to the BarOne opening; didn't you show up late to Kim's baby shower?

Cynthia,

I notice your rebuttal to some of the comments made by your fellow housewives is simply that you are pretty. You are without a doubt very pretty, however wouldn’t it be nice to be known for more than just being a pretty face. Wouldn’t you like your daughter to see the value of intelligence, education and skill…..beauty fades….and relying only on ones looks is not the best approach to life.

Cynthia please don't get drawn into the battle with these chicks. You have so much on your plate right now with your business, marriage and family. Concentrate on going higher and "let them eat cake".

I just think Cynthia is such a cool gal. I have nothing but love for you Cynthia. I have heard about people being cruel on Blogs. But, after reading it for myself, some of these comments are unbelievable. Congratulations on your new business ventures. I know you will be very successful. Who really cares if the club is in the Hood? Why are these people acting like they have never did anything "in the Hood'. People are so phony...

hah! That was hilarious!!!! Even though NeNe is annoying...Sheree takes the fat girl cake on annoyance. I cannot think of one nice thing she has ever said to anyone....EVER! Ha-ter!

Why is everybody asking Cynthia why she only talks back in her blogs? Tell me exactly when one of these other "females" said what they had to say about her to her face? Did Kim confront her about her gift in her face? Did Sheree talk about not being able to afford NeNe in her face? Did Phaedra make little snide comments about practicing and looking at models in her face? No they did not..they talk about it in one on one interviews and on tweets.

I'm assuming she sees the comments made in the confessional area when the viewers do? Where else is she supposed to respond?

Man your sister is doing Dos Mucho "TOO MUCH" i get you want to protect your sister but my family motto is "if you like it, i love it" and as long as your happy she should rejoice in that. You need to stop telling her all your business especially if you don't want reactions like that from her and blow out arguments like you two been having. I like peter i think you two are the realest couple on there. As far as the everlasting hate that comes from the other ladies just brush them off be flatterd that they have to talk about you for anybody to even take an intrest in what's coming out of their mouths. xo

Cynthia you are indeed a breath of FRESH AIR on this show. Stay CLASSY, stay TRUE, and as they say "let your haters be your motivaters". I think that being loyal is a dying breed so watch those that you utilize that character on. Now about your sis and Peter, I think it will work itself out but don't allow there childish feud STRESS you because in my opinion, they are both wrong and she be able to squash it for peace sake. Til next week.

LOVE THIS BLOG! And the others you write too but you are SO on point with this one. Keep being classy as you (not Sheree as she ALLLLWAYS say) are the classiest lady on now. I couldn't believe how petty the ladies were. Phaedra the most but Kandi - I was shocked how she was trying to get "juice" from Charles Grant. Oh and the pic Peter presented of you is simply gorgeous. Can't wait to visit Bar One the next time I'm in the ATL!

Cynthia, you are my favorite and it amazes me when the other cast members say that you are weak. I think you are a strong, beautiful woman who has made it on her own, not off the strength of a man (Sheree’s claim to fame). I think it bothers them that you and NeNe are friends and you don’t go around back stabbing NeNe like they do. A true friend accepts there friends as they are not as they would have them to be. Sheree is so jealous of you it just oozes out of her pores. When Sheree made the comment about Peter’s club being in the hood, I’m sure she felt right at home (I mean, she does come from Cleveland)…enough said.

You seem manipulated and unable to speak up for yourself. You can do this witout coming off like a "nene" The fact that she came to your even 5 minutes before it ended is would be condired rude by anyone standards and that is not a supportive friend. When I hosted a fundraiser for by father who had been ill my friends supported my by arriving on time and they stayed to the end. That my dear is true friendship.

Cynthia has all right to respond the way she does and I love it! They are always throwing jeers at her and her husband but yet they ALWAYS trying to be right there at their events...WHYYYYY I ask? If you don't like people or their hood or what ever politely decline the invite. Keep doing you Cynthia you have my respect!

Whateva Cynthia! I don't know about you quite yet. Yes, you stay out of drama, but you act as if NeNe is God's gift to the world; take her side ALL THE TIME. And yes, maybe your family should've went about it a different way, but I've learned when you talk to your family about situations and if the situation make you sad, then fam will always have your back; so don't go pointing fingers (at your sis) and your relationship is no better. Peter walk around talking about people (definitely not his place) and yall really should've stayed home for Kim's shower. What a disaster once yall arrived! As for the NeNe, Cynthia and Peter relationship - WHATEVA on that also. No way would my friends EVER say hello to my man (kiss) and ASK for him all the time. There are boundaries that they just know not to cross, but I guess you don't care cuz all you see is NENE...LOL

Ms. Cynthia: I am not in anyway trying to embarass Sheree but did she really call Grant Park hood? It is beautiful,historic and as trendy as it comes. She needs to get out more.

Love Ya

Great blog!! I love the way that you handled the negative comments made by you, NeNe, and Peter. It just really does not make sense to keep up mess. Also, it always seems the other ladies are trying to find something wrong with your and NeNe's friendship. Have they ever thought that NeNe has not been a good friend to them because they have not been a good friend to her. I wonder?? Well, Congratulations on you and your families success and I wish you much more.

Great blog!! I liked the way you addressed all the stupid comments that were being made about you, NeNe, and Peter. All these other women keep trying to find something wrong with your and NeNe's friendship. Have they ever thought that NeNe has not been a true friend to them because they have not been a true friend to her. I wonder?? Well, anyway, congratulations on you and your husbands success and I wish you much more.

Cynthia, dont let the comments of others stop or pause you from your life's path.... I'm sure there is more going on with you and your sister.... and it has nothing to do with peter.... but it really looks like she is meddling too much.... I like your sister but tell her to "cut the apron strings" a bit... she almost makes it seem as if you are so reckless and irresponsible that she has to come in and save you all the damn time. and I don't see that.... I have admired you long before you got on this show.... I followed your modeling career... and if your life was so messy....I'm sure I would have heard about it. "misery loves company".... you and NeNe are the best. Those other "wives" please let them do what they do.....I pray for the success of your business and the health of your family.... which includes NeNe of course.... don't let their meddling interfere with your friendship. TEAM CYNTHIA & TEAM NENE

LMAO @ "Oh, maybe I should have poured water on her shoulder". It amazes me how they make Nene (and your friendship) the center of their world in EVERY SINGLE EPISODE! And I'm very disappointed in Kandi for trying to get all the juicy gossip on that guy who was RUMORED to be with Nene. She's turning into a pot stirrer!

Cynthia kudos to you for your eloquent yet humorous blogs over the last few weeks. It is obvious that you have and will continue to remain true to yourself and your husband Peter (True West Indian men always do their utmost to provide for their families). Ignore the naysayers, backstabbers and the negative comments in ATL and always, always remain STAY TRUE TO YOURSELF!!!!

West Indian sister sending respect your way and rooting for you and yours all the way from Brooklyn, NY !

Cynthia, I have just got to say it girl, you are the classiest lady on all the housewives show put together. I love, love, love the way you respond to all the catty comments made by the so called "ladies" of Atlanta. You show such grace and class with every post you make. I wish miss "Southern Bell" could take a few lessons from you, because I think she missed out on a few in finishing class. lol. You can talk as proper as you like it still doesn't give you class. These "ladies" need to learn an important lesson. Either you are born with class or you not......and they don't have the class you have in your little finger in their whole body!!!! You are such a wonderful and much needed addition to the Atlanta "wives". I really don't understand the relationship you have with NeNe, you are complete opposites however maybe some of your class will rub off on her, Lord knows she needs it in bucket fulls, but seeing what a beautiful heart you have, I guess I can see it. I wish you and Peter the best in life and hope for a safe and blessed Holiday season.

Ok, we get it. You're a model and pretty. What else do you have to offer? Your only defense is, "well I look good". Are you six years old? Its getting a bit annoying.

Cynthia, Your recent blogs have been spent defending yourself and replying to snide comments. Don't bother. It's a waste of time and energy and it brings you down to there level. Live your life for you and your family. Take everyday as a blessing. My 19 year old daughter just found out today her friend from school has cancer and started chemo today. There are much bigger things in this world than this pettiness. You seem like a nice person so don't let them bring you down.

Go head Cynthia! Your blog made it painfully obvious exactly how much Phaedra and Sheree talk about you. They both put the "H" in Haterville.

Love you Cynthia! It's refreshing to see a real friendship on the show, you and NeNe compliment each other perfectly. You guys are two of my favorite housewives (my third, Kandy, is testing me this season). I hope things continue to go well for you in your new business ventures and your marriage; I also hope you are able to find common ground with your sister. She is only looking out for you, she just needs to scale it back a bit.

SHEREE REALLY DOESN'T HAVE AN IDENTITY, SHE'S JUST A GOODLOOKING WOMAN(SHRUGS). KIM IS A WEALTHY & GHETTO FABOULOUS, THREE BABY DADDIES, HAIR WEAVES AND WIGS, COPYCAT SYNDROME, SHE'S SUPER FAKE...SHE DID KANDI SUPER BOGUS AND SHE'S PLAYING THE BLONDE ROLE ON TELEVISION VERY WELL. KANDI IS HUMBLE, AND I LOVE THAT ABOUT HER; SHE'S GAINED WEIGHT BUT IT LOOKS ON HER (NO HOMO) BUT SHE'S SEXIER!!! CYNTHIA IS JUST A DELICATE FLOWER THAT END UP IN A GARDEN FULL OF WEEDS SOMETIMES...PHAEDRA FIT THE DESCRIPTION THAT THE PASTOR KIDS ARE GENERALLY THE MOST NAUGHTY ONES. IT'S UNFORTUNATE THAT NENE AND PHAEDRA DON'T HAVE A RELATIONSHIP, BECAUSE THE TWO OF THEM ON ONE ACCORD WOULD BE HILARIOUS. I LOVE NENE, SHE CAN DO NO WRONG...SORRY Y'ALL...

I see no reason as to why the other ladies have such negative attitudes toward you at this point. If I had only negative things to say about you and Peter I would not support anything or event you two were involved in.

Its like they wanted you to yell and scream at NENE for being late, I say if you and Peter were okay with it, then it shouldn't have bothered any of the other ladies.

I have so much respect for your sister and mother, they love you so much and really don't want to see you hurt. I pray NENE doesn't disappoint you. You are a good person annd good friend. She seemed to have let fame go to her head and thats not good.
