On my photo in BarOne:
I love my photo in Bar One. Even though I don't like surprises, I was very flattered. The afro was big! Not everybody can wear one.
"Practicing is always the smart thing to do."
Yes. I think my mom told me that when I was little.
"It would be rude to mention that Cynthia was not the best MC"
Perhaps not, but I was the prettiest.
"Everybody knows that you want to look at models, not hear them."
I guess one out of two ain't bad.
"Peter is a pimp."
I think this was actually meant to be a compliment, so I'm going to let this one slide. Thank you, I guess.
I know you guys don't really read these, but this needs to be said: Cynthia is a class-act! I thought Ms. Frankel was funny, but baaaa-by, you are hilarious. It amazes me how people spend so much of their time putting others down..that's just sick and sad. There are so many more important things going on in the world. Even though you're on TV, your marriage is YOUR business, people feel that when you acheive a certain level of celebrity that affords them the right to meddle and judge..they're wrong. Do you, Ms. Bailey
Cynthia I absolutely love your blogs and how you always manage to point out these ladies and their BS. Some of their comments are simply asinine and I love that you always have a witty comeback. Thanks for always keeping it classy and showing that your mother raised you well!! Stay blessed.
I thought the night was fabulous and I love that you did not get caught in the humbug of the haters because NeNe was late. Oh and btw..Teddy Riley was there too!!! you better work it Peter!! you are one strong woman cynthia no matter what anyone thinks you have a mind and a heart of your own and not afraid to show it. love love love your positivity towards the negative crap!! muah!
Omg. This blog had me cracking up! Your sarcasm was hilarious. I'm going to come check you guys out. Keep up the good work!
Oh jeez, yes the ladies are rude, but they have been all along. Although you don't provide the drama (which is what I, and most of America tune in for!) I really liked you because you were classy and above it all. You were true to yourself and did not dive into the slanderous talk the other women do. But now you are, and I must say I'm very disappointed! I truly believe if you have problems with someone you need to say it to their face, as well as writing it on your blog (if that's what you decide to do.) Confront your problems, or go back to ignoring the other women and their petty behavior!
Wow somebody has a chip on her shoulder with every blog hhhmmm Cynthia? Maybe the other ladies should pick apart everything u say on the show.... Get over yourself nobody cares about ur excuses. BTW stop putting down ur sisters marriage shes there to help u for crying outloud. Ur such a user!
I generally enjoy reading your blogs, but this one makes no sense. Skating rinks? Pouring water on Nene? What did we miss here?
This was a funny blog! I just hope you don't get burnt by NeNe & your man..they both seem to manipulate you. God Bless!
Cynthia, You and Peter are a beautiful couple Keep going girl Love you guys. and stay friends with NeNe no matter what the haters say. Love you both
Dats right, Cynthia!!! Stop being nice and put people in their places!!!! I think it great that you,NeNe, and Peter are good friends.
Cynthia, It seems all you do is continuously explain and defend your actions...why is that necessary? You're gorgeous! You should be creating your own buzz, not whining about everyone else's.
Hi, Cynthia Congratulations to both you and Peter for your new ventures. I think it is so great that both of you are so supportive of each other. Every week you, Peter and Nene show how true friends are suppose to treat each other. Thank you for that. Everybody always say they are happy for their friends but you all show it. I love the way you address the comments made during the show and in the interviews, you are very classy. Again, thank you. You and Nene help make the show fun to watch.
I LOVE your prespective on the comments made all episode regarding you, Peter & NeNe. You kept it very classy, but you proved 'You ain't no fool".
Skinny people love cake too! Really!! HILL-LAR-ROUS!
Weird blog....lots of inside digs BUT I hear ya!!! Keep rising to the top and good luck - I really like your spirit and drive!
You blog is too funny!!! Love you girl, keep being beautiful and loving. I never seen so many women with so many negative comments. No one had anything good to say about BarOne, that is usually when people are jealous. I love you and Nene as friends. God bless your kind heart!!!
you are a amazeing person I just love watching you and Nene on the show. those ladies have it bad for you guys. keep doing what you do being classey
I love how you address every comment. You also address them with so much class, continue to be the classy lady you are. I love the fact that NeNe have not join the cat fights in a while. I think she actually is getting to them. Haven't you notice the more she ignore the gossiping hens, the more upset they seem to get, and the more they seem to talk about her. Why do we always seem to worry individuals that could care less about us. The only thing I wish is that on Sunday you would have removed yourself from that uncomfortable situation. It amazes me to see that these women claim to have so much class, but lack ettiquette. No one thought how akward their conversation made Charles' girlfriend. I think that all were trying so hard to make NeNe look bad, that you that never considered her feelings. Disrespectful! Nice going ladies and I use that word loosely. Cynthia good luck to you and Peter in your marriage and businesses.
Well Said Sistah Cynthia:
I think that they wanted you to act the fool like they have been this whole season concerning NENE!!! Be you and don't allow anyone to try and change who you are; I for one know that you are your own person. I am tired of the NeBNe bashing!!! Kandi too was annoyed with Kim on the bus and no one is talking about that; especially, when she went off on Kim and Sweetie about all othe stops that they wanted the bus driver to make and all of the complaining that Kim was doing on the bus. She felt that the bus was beneath her. There had to be a reason that NeNe was late and the only people who need to know the reason was you and Peter. Way to make your point in your BLOG!!!
Love you girl!!! You Rocked the FRO!
Leave the sarcastic comments for the pros. I liked the sweet Cynthia better. Everyone has a role Phaedra is the funny witty one, NeNe is the bully, Sheree is the sarcastic one, Kandi is the level headed one, Kim is (hmmm the verdict is still out) and Cynthia was the sweet one. That's what makes the group unique. So please Cynthia stay in your lane and remain the person that we had grown to love.
Congratulations on your well-earned success in your businesses. As for your blog, you said that NeNe is like family and knew why she was late to the party. 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.
CYNTHIA!....FIRST OFF I WANT TO SAY I LOVE LOVE YOU ON THE RHOA YOU ARE SO REAL,SWEET AND DOWN TO EARTH AND IT SHOWS THAT YOU,PETER AND NENE ARE REALLY GREAT FRIENDS...CONGRATS ON THE SUCCESS OF BARONE AND MAY GOD CONTINUE TO BLESS YOU ON YOUR FURTURE ENDEVORS.I MUST SAY THOUGH THAT THE "RAT PACK" YOU INVITED IS ALWAYS LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO SAY ABOUT NENE MY ADVICE IS LET NOTHING COME BETWEEN YOUR FRIENDSHIP WITH NENE THEY ARE JUST SIMPLY HATING ON THE WOMAN IN MY OPINION AND JUST NEED TO FOCUS ON THEIR OWN LIVES TAKE CARE GIRL.....
Wish I could be there to enjoy watching the show with you, Peter and the crowd at Bar One! What a fun time.
I thought I saw one of Tyra's NTM people in your class. Is that true?
Great blog Cynt. For once I would like to see you shut those other gurls down on the show who have said such negative things about you. Phedra- the bible says a double minded person is unstable. You smile in their faces then say another thing behind their backs. Maybe instead of saying such negative (sneaky) things about everybody, you could work on a real marriage and not just one for T.V. Sheree- now I really do not have to say anything thing. Because EVERYBODY KNOWS that she is a farce. The house was never built. Now you are living in a condo. You and Lawrence drove up and that rented C CLASS (bottom of the line) car talking about the hood. Do BETTER.
Cynthia, I love how you address each thing point by point. LOL LOL Don't want to leave anything out. I'm proud of you and Peter for having a dream and actually making it happen (unlike some others who claimed to be building a chateau) I am planning on making it out to Bar One on Sunday for the viewing party. I've been to the site and although I did see some typo's the place looks very very sexy and I can't wait to visit. I would like to know when Grant Park was changed to the hood too (some people just don't have it in them to be happy for other people no matter how hard they try to fake it). You worked that afro andIi think the picture is very beautiful (some people are just jealous because no matter how much airbrushing is done they still look mannish). You looked beautiful at the fashion show and for your first time you made a great effort. (some people think they are better than everyone else) I wouldn't have let that pimp comment slide (maybe she's a sugar mama in disguise) All that drama at the baby shower and now she's coming to support you and Peter and wouldn't miss it? Suspicious to say the least....As far as NeNe being late what did they want you to do cuss her out and cause a scene? Why were they constantly asking if you spoke to her or not? What business was is it of their's anyway? She's late and let that be the reason. Hens love to heckle get a life!! Yeah I think if you poured water on her shoulder they would have been satisfied. Why are they trying to get you on their side so bad? It's so high school and ridiculous. As far as the comments about you and Peter only being able to afford five minutes of NeNe's time (it was just uncooth and tacky) How about you affording to have one brick laid at your supposed chateau let alone a skating rink. Honey please! If it's in the hood why has Sheree made her way back there (since she gets lost all the time) Child I am so tired of these hens talking smack and aint got two pennies to rub together. congratulations on Bar one and the Bailey Agency and much love and success to you. O yeah I was disapponinted in Mal again this week glad you stood up for yourself!
Cynthia, The only reason NeNe is such good friends with you is because she has lost all of the others!!!! Oh yeah, and she is under a contractual friend agreement. When does that contract expire? Be ready, girl. Luckily, you have a "ganster" for a husband. If I was you, I would not turn a blind eye to my husband that got $40,000 dollars quickly because he is "ganster". Careful girl, you are in over your head with "The Rich One" for a friend and a "ganster" for a husband.
Cynthia you are a beautiful woman, don't lose who you are. Sheree never has a kind word or an original thought so why even address her comments about you? Keep being beautiful you, recognize your true friends and rise above the nastiness. Good luck to you and Peter on your new endeavors.
I like you Cynthia and I think you have class, but it looks really cowardly to talk all this mess on the blogs. Your one-liners are snappy so try using them on the more on the show and less on the blog.
I like your post. You have a great sense of humor. God bless both of your businesses. You, Khandi, and NeNe inspire me to venture off and follow my dreams (business wise).
Cynthia, your blogs are the best! I love your sense of humor. You and NeNe should just let the haters do their job. There is nothing wrong with being down for your man, family, and friends. Please follow me on twitter @kellinichole919
I cannot agree with you more. I live in the old 4th ward about 3 lights from Bar One home to the tomb of MLK and the MLK center for peace. Obviously Sheree and her little friend are not from Atlanta. How could any upstanding African-American Atlanta resident not know that memorial and boulevard (where Bar One is located) are close to such a prominent and important landmark. The area is amazing. They need to go back and eat at a strip mall that could be anywhere USA. They must live in the burbs. Bravo's shots of all the abandon buildings are not even close to Bar One. You and Peter got the shaft. I wish you all the best in the sucess of the Bar. Thank you for vesting in our city and being truly cosmopolitian.
Love you Cynthia congratulation to both you n Peter on your businesses may God continued to flourished it.don't worry abt the negatives stuff from he by sheere and fakedrak.
Hopefully you see this because bravo choose wht comment they post.
Hey Cynthia, your right stay close to thoes that are your true friend. The rest of the ladies aren't. Your Husband is right about people staying out of your marriage, they can't see or understand your Love for your Husband and it's applaudable. I wish the best for the both of your and your businesses.
I think Mal really needs to leave Cynthia alone, I understand looking out for your sister but your sister is going to do what she wants to do regardless of how you feel. We don't see the relationship with Mal and her husband so who is to say they have the best relationship. Cynthia be happy support your husband as much as you feel you need to.
Cythina-Hopefully, I can stop by Bar One during the holidays. I know it is great asset to the Grant Park community. You know Phaedra is familiar with the hood because she knows what it"s all about. Don't worry about the haters.
Peace, Georgia Peach
I recently started watching RHOA and i have no idea what all the bad comments towards you are coming from. I see you as an assertive woman, that dont give a hoot about what is being said about her. You do you and noone else. Good for you.
Gotta love that Phaedra : ) I can see her getting her own show. Peter said what he wanted about the girls...so go Phaedra. Payback.... As for Nene...how rude to you and Peter...she knows it...I wouldn't be so forgiving Cynthia...you will regret it with Nene as long as your willing to look the other way. She is a big mouth bullly. I agree with you that your sister needs to back off...if you go broke...oh well...you can make more money. Sis had her say...now back off.
Cynthia, I love your comments. So appropriate. You keep being you and the true colors of the those other housewives will show through. Thank you for having class and respect and not losing control of who you are. I love it!
Cynthia, I think you are an OK housewife but it seems like you're using your blog to spit out a bunch of snappy one-liners that you probably should have said while you were filming but wasn't quick enough to do so. If you had said some of this stuff during filming and weren't afraid to speak your mind then I would have more respect...instead you just look petty now. Ugh...you're starting to annoy me. I hope Bravo finds a replacement quick.
You are really defensive you need to relax a bit. You are on a reality show people say what they think. Get over yourself.
Cynthia - Keep doing what your doing and being friends with whom you wish to be friends with. I'm glad you didn't put Nene on BLAST b/c that would of given them bitter/hateful women something to laugh about. If you would of put Nene on blast for being last, what would that have accomplished? Nothing. And look at Sharee, she is the biggest "hater" there is, yet her house still isn't done. Maybe she needs to worry about her own life and stop worrying about others. I agree, you weren't the best MC, but you live and learn. Maybe next time, you'll be better prepared.
Girl, you keep standing up for yourself in your blogs, why not in person? Hopefully you confront these girls at the reunion if you have such a problem with them. And it was rude of Nene to be late, especially if she was a co-host.
Cynthia, Ignore the haters! Stay true to yourself. I admire your positive spirit and commitment to your marriage. You seem to know what it takes to make a marriage work and that is commendable in this day and age where most people are only about themselves. By God's grace your businesses will be prosperous...then all the jealous folks can go hang themselves.
However, I know you love Nene. But, for your sake, treat her like a bowl of hot soup...you gotta drink carefully otherwise you will get burnt. I don't believe Nene cares about anybody else but herself.
