I have never questioned where Marlo gets her money, her criminal past, or this 80-year-old sugar daddy the Smalls seem to be so interested in talking about. I don't care how any of the girls get the money to support their lavish lives, because it is none of my business. I absolutely do not have anything to prove to anyone, and I don't wear anything on my sleeve. I don't feel like material things validate me in any way. My history and career speak for themselves. With my new business, expensive designer shopping sprees are far and few between. Thank goodness my best friend, Kithe Brewster, is a stylist and helps keep me together.
Without question, Marlo rocks the hottest and latest fashions in this group! No one can touch her. While we may have a piece here and there, she is the walking (and talking) Gucci ad! I think she even gets a lot of her looks straight off the runway. Fabulous! If you see me with an expensive designer look straight off the runway, please believe it came straight from a NY showroom and I'm wearing it for free. I have a family and a business to support. I can't afford it, and make it a point NOT to act like I can. Marlo bleeds fashion, and I bleed The Bailey Agency School of Fashion!
Next, I said I couldn't PICTURE Kim in Africa at the orphanage holding African kids. I also said, "I'm not saying she WOULDN'T do it, I just can't see it." That's just my opinion, like it was her opinion that my marriage wouldn't last a year. Kim and I are not exactly best buds, we don't owe each other anything. I really don't care what Kim thinks about me, and I know she that she doesn't care what I think about her. Hello! I'm not her girl, Kandi is.
Why can't you just admit that you are afraid of NeNe. It is quite obivious. Grow up and be your own woman for goodness sakes. At least the other ladies have the spirit to be themselves and not let anyone else control them.
Sadly its true, you are a flip flopper. You dont trust your own instincts, thats why you always have stronger personalities around you, aka Peter, NeNe and your sis. Your tie dyed sarong, yellow bag and chuck taylor combo was awful. Hopefully your stylist will give you a refund.
Nice you don't judge. But Marlo is wackery. Scary and pretentious. Unbelievable pretentious. It's actually plain ole tiresome. Also, she ran around with some very unsavory people in her past. She's a con, plain and simple. Nene is a moron.
I wish you were the woman you think you are. You would be more likeable. Your judgements disguised as observations reveal someone much more insecure than you would have us believe.
Oh Cynthia! Contrary to what you say and what you do say you are not true to yourself. I can see your fear of NeNe and her new BFF Psycho Fashion Marlo. You are a bit two faced with the ladies. You need to do a little better at standing by what you say. Tsk Tsk on you.
Marlo is dumb and stupid and Bravo was wise to let her go. One out of control loud and stupid woman is enough(Nene Leakes). It still amazes me how a woman her age is so fascinated by someone else's name on her back. I couldn't care if the clothes came off another model's back Marlo is still too old to be so obsessed with materalistic things. Nene loves to talk about all those name brands, but she hadn't made enough money and she spends most of her's by nip and tucking her body and still she does not look any better. I think Jackee said Nene is the less fashionable lady of RHOA. I am sure Marlo will let her borrow a few items when Mrs. Leakes wants to glam up.
You really did come off as two-faced during this episode. You seemed to have a better time with "the smalls." I don't know why you suck up to Marlo and Nene so much.
AMEN Cynthia, I think the smalls are jealous of the talls you must have a pass in order to have a future. So Marlo is good with me I am sure a majority of us have had someone in our families with a criminal past no matter big or small you keep rocking Cynthia
Cynthia- WHAT?! I think you talk out of both sides of your mouth. What you said about Marlo was not a big deal, but it was a complete turn around when Nene was around. You all are grown women with individual opinions, which is great. But your opinion should not waver due to the company you keep. You seem to be the biggest offender in that category. We, the viewers, only know what we see. I'm sure you're a nice person, but for me, you come across as a weak and backbiting person. Oh and for some one who is not materialistic some of your comments in South Africa, in reference to the hotel accommodations, were rude and tacky.
Too bad that you aren't smart enough to edit yourself...or to see that you are letting people like Nene and that disgusting Marlo bring you down. You need to quit back stabbing everyone and get some real friends.
Cynthia, I like you on the show. You tend to stay classy and positive. However, you do change just a smidge when Ne-Ne comes around. You are not as vocal or opinionated. It is almost like a child when their mother enters the room. Ne-Ne does have a dominate personality and snaps over the slightest things but you are a grown woman just like her. Maybe you don't want to upset her or get into an on camera squabble with the queen of confrontation. Who knows? You did seem more expressive regarding different things, namely Marlo, when you were with Phaedra, Kandi, and Sheree BUT the moment Ne-Ne showed up it was like the cat had your tongue. You say you are not afraid of Ne-Ne and I don't think that you are nor do I think she is your boss but your personality definitely changes and your comments are not as straightforward when she is around. Again this is just the opinion of someone who watches you for one hour a week. For the record, Marlo does dress nice but you can tell she needs compliments from others in order to feel confident. People with confidence don't need to broadcast anything because they know who they are.
Your ENTIRE blog was about Marlo. Someone's trying not to step on Nene's toes... Regardless of what you say/type, what we see on this show is what we get, and you, unfortunately, are insecure.
Cynhia... You say Nene has no influence or etc.. over you but in this episode it sure does seem like it...
It was very refreshing to see the ladies enjoying themselves in Africia, ok I know it did not last more than a few minutes, but it was great seeing the comratie between them.
Cynthia, In my humble opinion, you appear to be at the very least strongly influenced if not intimidated by NeNe. Not only in the last episode but several others as well. There is no shame in admitting it. If you are truly unaware, perhaps reviewing the shows may be of some assistance as it is blatantly obvious to your audience. May I add, I do believe you are a genuinely good person, with no small measure of class and can do much better in your choice of friends than NeNe. Carrieanne
Way to go Cynthia, I know what you said and I know what you meant and there was no need for Kandi to go there, I don't think you changed because NeNe was there it just wasn't worth going there, you and Phadria allways trys to stay away from the drama and sometimes that mean knowing when to keep your mouth close when you know others just want to open it to start drama. you'r a classy lady
well said cynthia!!!!...thats why i love you on that show girl you are the realest and the most humble out of all the girls and to keep it real they are just hating on marlo the girl got it going on you can tell and just like you said thats who she is...thats your opinion and i didnt see nothing wrong with what you said!...love you girl!
Cynthia .... you ROCK the bosses !!! you are classy and down to earth .... you are a TRUE friend and NOT a hater !!! these girls are lucky to have you .... or I would tune out !! I too do not SEE Kim on the trip or at the orphanage - nothing to do with color !!
I dont like you this season, your playing both sides and ur two faced. Please re-think you who attitude.
Cynthia, I reread your Blog, to see if my opinion changed. Sorry, it didn't, I still system the whole thing is BOLOGNEY! Peace
Hey cynthia, you seem to have more fun with the "smalls" I'll respect marlo more if she doesn't brag about her clothes so much and actually work for those clothes as oppose to getting an allowance, I havent had an allowance since I was a teenager okay??? LOL!!!
Cynthia, You are very passive agressive. You admire the strength you perceive in your husband and also Nene and hide behind it. You have a pattern of complaining to others (your Mom and your sister about the stress you were under before the wedding, before your agency opening) and ran to Marlo and Nene to talk about what Sheree said. Then you act surprised at the havoc and fighting you instigated and try to act like the innocent and insured party while everyone else fights it out. No, you didn't come out and blatantly say anything against Marlo, but your facial expressions and subtle put-downs say a lot more than you admit. It doesn't ring true that you like Marlo. It seems more that you don't want to lose Nene's friendship. You align yourself with offensive, beligerant people, so they can do the dirty work and you will look like the nice one. Yes, you do have nice qualities, but you also are the cause of problems between people.
Cynthia......grow a spinal cord!!!! I am utterly disgusted with you this season. If you don't stand for something you will fall for anything. NeNe is not the big bad wolf she pretends to be. You see she does'nt pull that crap with Phaedra. She knows better! Oh....Cynthia......poor you.....Let us pray!
Poor you! I think you are entirely too old to be unsure of yourself and bullied by another grown woman. Take a stand Cynthia.......after all, you are raising a daughter who is looking at you as an example. Get it together!!!!!!!!!!!!
I read your blog entry twice Cynthia and, yes, you do appear to be intimidated by NeNe. It does appear that you support nearly all of her opinions and comments even if earlier you stated something completly different. Kandi was correct in her assessment.
really? You went and told NeNe and Marlo that sheree only invited you to go to her friends house and you did not think it would cause a problem? Are you that naive?
You blow with the wind. AND, it was blatantly obvious that you were too intimidated to say in front of NeNe and Marlo (gag) to repeat what you said to the "smalls". You also completely did a 180!
You ARE NeNe's puppet. You HAVE no back bone. You are SCARED of Marlo. You ARE weak. You are also a liar and mess starter because Marlo has taken your "dear" NeNe away, and you feel left out and tossed aside. You have no problem telling Marlo what you said? Really? Have you told her yet you lied about what Sheree said? Yeah, I didn't think so, although she knows now and knows exactly why you did it. How SMALL do YOU feel? Yes, we are laughing AT you!
I really do not know what Cynthia's problem is with Kim. She was not there to defend herself about he oprhanage comments. Why would you use the word racist towards kim? Because she has a 2 month old and therefore did not go to Africa with the girls and that makes her racist? I have heard Cynthia and her husband make racist comments on the show more than once towards white people. You and your husband are the racists...always making comments about Kim. Cynthia..you and your husband seem to have a problem with white people and really need to get over it!!
Not for nothing, but do you think it's wise for someone that has a "School of Fashion" or modeling or whatever it is that the "Bailey Agency" does, to say "fashion is not big priority in my personal life" - I get what you are saying, but if I was considering going to such a place, I would want someplace where fashion IS EVERYTHING - Again, I completly see what you were trying to say - But not a very busineess savoy thing to say - Just sayin
CYNTHIA,,, NENE IS A GOOD FRIEND TO YOU AND YOU DONT DESERVE HER AS A FRIEND....WEREN'T YOU WITH THE SMALL'S WHEN CHARLES WAS ANSWERING QUESTIONS YOU'LL WER ASKING ABOUT HE AND NENE'S SEX LIFE.... I SEE WHY PETER, LEFT YOUR OPENING, WITHOUT SAYING GOODBYE...REALLY HE WASN'T INVITED.DO ME A FAVOR TAKE UR PRECIOUS BABYGIRL AND GO BACK TO NEW YORK, SO THAT CHILD CAN BE WITH HER DAD.... WHERE IT CAN BE ABOUT HER AND NOT ABOUT YOU... WHO MOVES THEIR CHILD TO A UNSTABLE SITUATION.. FROM NEW YORK TO ATLANTA...APPARENTLY U FOR YOUR OWN SELFISH NEEDS..........
I always liked you Cynthia and still think you're a sweetheart and have a good spirit ...but girl STOP! We all saw you do a complete 180 regarding your thoughts on Marlo ...or should I say you changed your tune once in front of the talls and the smalls ...do better.
Cynthia, you are very two faced and you were the one that made the comment about Kim not wanting to hold lil black babies at the orphange while you were hanging with Kandi, Sheree & Phaedra. you're so weak and shadey. UGH!!!
When are you going to get rid of Peter. He's such an A**Hole. Being by yourself would be much better. Goodness the sacrifices us women make to have a man!
Wow... Cynthia!!! I didn't see any flip-flopping. I just saw a woman agitated by Marlo and her "label" dropping and "ghettiquette" lessons. That would have drove me up a wall. Marlo (I love her) should stop appearing as if she is not use to having such luxuries. She is certaintly (I love her) ghetto.
So all of you ignorant chaotic commentators can go fry fish (my "ghettiquette" way of saying go F%$# yourself) . Continue to be beautiful and elegant Cynthia. ~Nicole from Trenton, NJ
I'm trying to like you cynthia, but you are really playing both sides and I find it to be very messy. Just be you and quit letting others influence your decisions about everything. Some times it's painful to even watch you at times when you are not being true to yourself. Say it like you mean it sweet heart!
....Hey Cynthia,,,my daughter wants to be a model...ill send you her pics....lol...seriously I love you too,,,they are so quick to judge you and I can't stand it....your money has been stacked on deck and you are beautiful with your own style,,let the Haters,,,,HATE....You keep doing you!!
I can't put my finger on who you are anymore. I think Nene's mean girl attitude has rubbed off on you.
Clearly your loyalty is with NeNe and theirs nothing wrong with that . However, you need to get some backbone because you appear as a follower.
You like Marlo and you’re cool with her, really Cynthia!!! Do you really want your daughter around women like that? Honestly, how could anyone possibly like Marlo or NeNe? All the screaming, yelling and getting into other people’s faces is very scary behavior. Maybe the Tall’s (minus you) should change their name to the low class Nasty’s.
