What a beautiful clupoe! Always remember your special day and why you made that commitment. It will get you through the roller coaster of life. Congratulatons to you both!
South Africa was amazing! The ten day vacation with the girls will be remembered forever. Even though there was drama, I choose to remember the genuine moments that we shared together, like at the orphanage. That was my favorite day! I know that I am forever humbled and truly blessed. Those children will be forever in my prayers and in my heart.
Were baaack! It always feels good to get away for a few days, but with these girls, ten days felt like ten years! Lord have mercy! At times it was kind of like walking through a land mine, and if you didn't watch your step, you could be blasted at any time! Anything and everything you said was blown out of proportion, everything was a big deal (even when it wasn't), and there was "shade" around every corner. Forever the optimist, the good always outweighs the bad with me. Positive affirmation will carry you far. The drama was inevitable on a trip like this. It was just a matter of time. Overall, drama or not, it was still the trip of a lifetime. Anyway, I missed my family so much and it felt good to be back home.
What a beautiful clupoe! Always remember your special day and why you made that commitment. It will get you through the roller coaster of life. Congratulatons to you both!
Cynthia you were wrong how you did your sister., point blank. Aside from other situation Peter was clearly disrespectful to Mel at the party. You failed to notice that or just chose to disregard it.
Yes that's your husband and you ultimately have to deal with your lame piece of man but don't diss your sister who was there for you the first time around and now that everything seems to be going ok you want her to mind her own damn business.You seem to have the balls to stand up to everybody else except NeNe after talking about Marlo but as soon as NeNe shows up , you were talking out of the other side of your mouth.
You cried on Mal's shoulder about Peter and made everyone feel sorry for you. Well no more, you let your husband humiliate Mal in a crowded room. Then blamed Mal, shame on you. How could you do that? You are only beautiful on the outside, and very shallow on the inside. I really hope you are cancelled off the show. This is behavior that tells women it's ok to be controlled by your husband and let him ostracize your family. When you wake up and have be left with nothing, your family will be there. You are truly pitiful. I can't believe I used to like you, big mistake.
You should be ashamed of yourself. You allow your husband to disrespect your own sister in front of hundreds of people! Obviously your brainwashed by Peter. He is broke, has no clue of saving money, jumps from failed biz venture, here and there. He is also controlling..and your sister is the problem? Check ya self Cynthia.
Your husband publicly disrespected your sister several times. Were you not aware of that? And to say that she might be drunk or going through a mid-life crisis as a way to describe her response, that is very sad. You are a very weak sister. I generally don't comment on blogs or on the Internet, but I am watching the episode in which you are talking to Peter about your sister and I just didn't think it was right. He was baiting her and trying to humiliate her publicly. Watch the tape. You should demand mutual respect on both sides. If your husband loves you, he wouldn't put you in such a terrible position with your sister. He knows how close you are and how this must hurt you. Best of luck to you Cynthia.
I like you overall but you need to grow up! Your role as both a sister, daughter, and wife is to facilitate the harmony of the relationships with those around you. I know you tried w/ Mal but you never seem to try w/ Peter (or at least the camera's don't show it). He outright disrespects your sister and mother to your face while you just blink away. You need to represent your family and showcase the morals your mother taught you and tell him while he may have every right to be angry, he needs to express it in a healthy way vs the passive aggressive BS he did at the bridal shower. STEP UP!
Poor Cynthia with that unattractive and obviously jealous sister of hers! Her sister clearly has some issue's with he...look at the faces she makes at Cynthia???????? She is sooooo jealouse of her and probably always has been! She should be though.....
I am so glad you addressed the situation with your sister. I am pulling for you and wishing you and Peter the best.
Cynthia, I am so glad to see you are standing up for yourself. Girl I am glad you enjoyed your trip to Africa and you tried to stay neutral. I think the smalls are always looking for something to harp on because they are what "small slash petty" feel me. They are always trying to stir up something. I like how you carry yourself and wish you and your honey all the best. You always turn the volume ALL the way up and outshine all these girls when you get glam! Fabulous honey and you better work it! Kithe looks like half the person he used to be almost unrecognizable except for that voice. I absolutely love his voice...So proud of you and glad to see you sticking up for yourself. I wish you much success in ALL you do!!!
Cynthia!!! OPEN YOUR EYES and EARS! Weren't you there at the Anniversary Party? Mallory was an invited guest - invited by you and Peter. He was horribly disrespectful to her and wanted to degrade her in public. How in the world can you defend that? You are so disgusted by Mallory losing her cool but don't have a word to say about Peter's attack on her?! You are an enabler to an abusive person. And by the way, if Malory doesn't like what she knows about Peter, who do you think she has heard most of it from? That's right, YOU! Quit talking about him to Mallory if you want them to ever get along.
Peter is a JERK. You allow him to say nasty things about Mal and then you BLAME Mal. Shame on you Cynthia. You need to tell Peter if he can't say anything nice about Mal. Which apparently he can't. Then he needs to keep his mouth shut......
CYNTHIA CYNTHIA CYNTHIA!!!!! MAYBE WE DIDNT SEE ALL AND BRAVO ONLY SHOWED EH CLIPS, BUT WASNT PETER SAYING HE DIDNT WANT YOUR SISTER IN THE NON EXISTENT LIMO. YOUR SISTER IS ON POINT FROM THE START. YOU DIDNT SEE IT. YOU GET HARD WITH THE PEOPLE YOU SHOULDNT, (YOUR SISTER) AND DONT WITH THE PEOPLE YOU SHOULD. YOUR MOTHER AND SISTER IS BEAUTIFUL AND IS CONCERN ABOUT YOU. SO ONE MORE QUESTION, IF YOUR DAUGHTER FIND LOVE AND YOU THINK IT IS BAD, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO. STAND ASIDE AND SAY NOTHING. THINK ABOUT IT BECAUSE IT IS COMING!! WHO EVER SAID YOUR SISTER IS JEALOUS IS WRONG. WHY WAS YOUR SISTER THE PROBLEM WHEN PETER CALLED HER OUT SEPARATELY AND THEN LAUGHED ABOUT IT. THAT WASNT RIGHT. YOU LET YOUR SISTER GO LIKE DISMISSING AN ACQUAINTANCE. WHERE WAS SHE DURING YOUR EVENT AND WHERE WAS PETER. SHE WAS THERE FOR YOU AND PETER HAD LEFT. I THINK YOU NEED TO WATCH THE SHOW OVER ONE MORE TIME!!!! NOW GO MAKE UP WITH YOUR SISTER.
Your husband insults your sister in front of everyone at the party and then last night....tells you in your own damn kitchen that he didnt do anything to her. He made jabs starting with the ride in the limo....that you didnt even end up getting to have...(Karma)....and then keeps on at the event....You have issues...If I were your sister I would tell you to kiss my a** and not help you do another thing.
Your sister should disown you . I cannot believe you let that creep Peter treat your sister so terribly. You and your sister need to be apart, clearly you have issues with her. It is a sad day when sisters cannot be honest with each other, because one does not want to hear it ! And since you have no common sense, yes Peter is trying to start more trouble bewteen you and your sister.
Cynthia your husband is the most disrespectful man I have ever seen yet. He is getting just the right amount of airtime now that we can see exactly what your mother and sisters issues are. If my husband ever treated my sister the way he did at your anniversary party, he would not be my husband. I can't believe you playing so stupid. Oh I don't know what her problem is, what is her issue,...Hello Cynthia, he mocked her, he shunned her, how did you expect her to act. He is a pot stirrer, he has anger issues and he appears to be a flim flam man, hide your purse! The way you have treated your sister...well it seems to me that it is easier for you to take out your anger and frustration at marrying such a man on your sister. Grow up, smarten up and drop the baggage,..your husband.
Cynthia- I think that you are a very mean and rude person to your sister. Peter made fun of her in a speech and you don't stick up for her?!?! I think Peter does that to see who you stick by, and you end up yelling at Mal, she had a right to be upset.
Cynthia. I get the husband, partnership, marriage thing. Peter is your husband. Your sister and mother should respect that and your decision to put Peter in a position of such high esteem. Here's the thing, what they feel about Peter is in part due to what "you" told them...what should have been intimate details between you and Peter, you provided those details to your mother and sister. I think you know that. Here's food for life, don't ever let a man disrespect your mother, sister, brother or child. God forbid, but if He sees fit to take your siblings away from you first through death, your husband will not fill that void. He can't. So you better find the balance, if you know whats good for you. Mal is not without fault, but you and Peter play a "wrong" role too. By the way, didn't Peter initiate the problem at your anniversary Party? Also, is he the one that can't quite say why he loves you, when asked by your minister? Hmmmm?
I have always thought until recently you had the most class. I know your sister seems on edge like she has some kind of stress disorder. Peter seems like a borderline. Everything is black and white to him. He is so rude. I do not understand how you expect your sister was meant to remain calm. I would've been infuriated. It's ridiculous that she's the one that ended up apologizing. I am at a loss for words. I recognize that there is a history with families, but its so obvious to most everyone I know who watches Atlanta that this guy has serious psychological problems. You are going to need your family, when you finally have an epiphany about your inability to see him for who he really is. A damaged, sad, controlling, careless man who is in emotional turmoil. Hope your sister stops worrying about you and the wonderful journey you've had in life, while she's played second fiddle to your dreams. Life's been easy and now your lessons are here. Hope you get them shortly.
Peter is wrong I agree with Mallory, he was totally disrespestful. Mallory was there to support your 1 year anniversary. I do not care for his behaviour with her. He has not forgiven her or her Mom. Something is wrong with you Cynthia if you cannot see Peter is evil. Some Men do not want you to have a connection with your family. You are allowing him to cross the line to much when it comes to your family. I do not see you doing that to his family.Where was he the night you open your business. Mallory was there. Don't be stuck on stupid you need to be more observant and let Peter know that you dont appreciate his attitude toward your family. I see why MALLOry dislike him because I do too...I did like Peter had a lot of respect for him before he did what he did. HE IS IGNORANT WATCH OUT CYNTHIA YOU HAVE BEEN WORNED
Cynthia, You need to keep the respect between both your husband and sister. They don't have to agree with each other, but your sister knows you better than anyone else in your life. She has been there for you in your past relationships and always supported you. Marriage is wonderful and hard work, Peter is not accepting responsibilty for his actions. I am happy to see that your sister has stepped aside and I hope you and Peter will grow into a mature couple. I am not a fan of Peter and am loosing respect for you after your anniversary.
You and Peter should have just gone out to dinner and celebrated like a normal happy couple. Maybe next time!!
I understand marriage is for better or worst and you are trying to stand by your man and you should stand by your man, but never stand up for a FOOL. What your family did a year ago was wrong. But they have tried to make amends and apologizing. As for your husband he has not let go of the past. (That is not a man). He purposely separated you and your sister and publicly humiliated her. And he has never apologized for anything. This honey is a problem. When ever a man starts separated you from your family and then your friends. And start manipulating your chooses you need to be careful. That is the beginning of traveling down a dangerous road. I hope it doesn’t get too ugly before you see what every one else sees. YOUR TO BEAUTIUL for that you can do way better then him. Wake up and move on before he brings you down to his level. But I think your smarter then that. RIGHT?
You are indigent. Your sister is beautiful, graceful and a true woman, and all you do is use her and put her down. Who have you gone to when you needed help with your "business" of which you do not have the sense to even run! You are two faced, do you not know that we all see what you stated to the girls in Africa, then you turn around and change a few words only so you can agree with NeNe the whale! Get a brain.
Did you not hear the disrespectful way he was talking to her at the party? Mallory it's hopeless, give up. Peters an jerk and hopefully Cynthia will realize that before she gives him all of her money. Husbands come and go but your family is always there!
I think.. it was really terrible.. for your husband.. to act that way.. towards your sister in his speech...She had a right to be upset...im sure.. its not. easy for her...to watch you being with a man like that.. and one day you will thank her for trying to show you the light... you have no back bone and i feel bad for you... and can i ask you who does your hair ...oo lord it really doesnt look right.. not just at the anniversary... it always.. looks really bad to me... i think.. you need a new hairdresser... or dont wear it.. with that greasy look pressed to your head.. it looks painted.. on.. and i remember.. leon from the reggae parties.. for years. .in NY... what a bucket.. LOL.. please tell him.. he cant sing.. LOL.. it was terrible... to hear his band... i prayed for the Dj everytime... him and.. his different white girls.. everynight...even when he was with you... cant believe... thats your daughters father... OOO lord... have mercy.
I think you really need to look at your husbands' contribution at the party as well.....his pointing out your sister's unlwelcome was embarassing to himself....your sister is only attempting to watch out for her sister....in a time where it looks like you are carrying your man.....alot of ways to spend money money he doesn't have....if he has to borrow from others to throw a party that was his idea....then maybe the party shouldn't have happened. Marriage is a covenant of two people becoming one....you should really look at the motives for both individuals and pray for discernment.
I was surprised by your mom's comment" is he bipolar"... But then I can't believe she proved of your sister hiding t marriage license either . I think that you should tell tem if they can't show respect to you and your husband on camera then don't film with them...you are the housewife, not them. If they can't resect your choices then they can't be a part of your happy life. I think your sister wants to be on tv so much that she keeps up drama.
how is being a friend to nene, not having a backbone. Have i missed something and i don't think i have, what did the blogger mean by standing up to nene? what have nene told you to do that you didn't want to? from you two, all i've seen is general girl friend conversations. you two don't sit around talking about the smalls 24/7, like they do. nene is in their mouths every show like you stood to your sister, you would stand up to nene if she disrespected you or your marraige. nene has always supported your marriage, and you hers. the smalls don't like nene and anyone who is a friend of hers, they will be against, now they don't like marlo, at first they did. as for your marriage stay with peter if that is what you want. as tyler perry said in his madea voice you have to be with the bad relationships because how will you know when the good one comes along?
Make sure your mother and sister are shown respect, and likewise from them to you and Peter.
You appear to be a beautiful woman, inside and out!
Cynthia, It is unfortunate that the people you love the most don't see that if they really love you, it is imperative for them to create harmony. I want your sister and your husband to stop it so that you can have peace. I'm sure that being in the middle is not comfortable. I would like to see your mother step to the plate and call a family meeting. Ultimately, she is responsible for setting the tone for the family relationship. I wish you the best with this and I pray that it gets better. I'm most happy that I have not seen any of this go down in front of your daughter. Hopefully before it goes that far, this will all be resolved.
The only way family and friends form opinions about your mate is if either you or your mate share intimate details of the relationship with them. Cynthia, you are the problem. You need to stop sharing all of your negative thoughts about your husband with others. IT IS NONE OF THEIR BUSINESS. What do you expect when you SHARE THE BAD AND THE UGLY ABOUT YOUR MATE WITH YOUR FAMILY? Do you think they will grow to love one another? GROW UP AND SHUT YOUR MOUTH. You looked ridiculous, standing there shocked that your Mother and sister had nothing positive to say about your marriage. Please watch the epsides of the show and take note of your conversations with your family. Take responsibility for your role and stop blaming your family for having an opinion based on the information you fed them!
Cynthia thank you for putting your sister in her place she's just hating on you.For the life of me I don't get what you see in Peter but he's your man you go girl!!!
Although I was surprised that your mother and sister were so candid with you about being surprised your marriage has lasted for a year, I was more surprised that you went on the defensive towards your sister at the party. Did you not hear your husband repeatedly making a mockery of your sister in front of all your guests? Even though your mother and sister may have been less than sensitive about your feelings, at least they were being honest and telling you in PRIVATE! Peter was not a gentleman by bad mouthing your sister in front of everyone and you poured salt into her wounds when she was being consoled by your friend for being disrespected. She was hurting and not just talking about Peter because of their disagreements, but just venting because he was being cruel in a very inappropriate venue. I hope now that the episode has aired that you see things a little differently and have apologized to your sister.
I hope Mallory is reading this: Mallory is a good sister, who genuinely has the best interest of her sister. But, Cynthia is an adult, and needs to make her own mistakes. Peter is disrespectful to Mallory. It shows you how immature he really is and to be honest, I think this marriage will not last long. But Mallory, do not let Peter or Cynthia disrespect you...step back and let them make their own mistakes. Cynthia will come back to you when she realizes how bad Peter is.
The more you bad mouth him, the more she will stick to him. Mallory, please step back. It is really sad to see Cynthia and Peter treat you in this manner.
Cynthia, If you truly do not want your sister in your life, then quit running to she and your mother every time Peter does something else stupid! Deal with it on your own, don't bring them into your fights. That said, I think they see Peter for what he really is, and it isn't pleasant, you better weak up lady!
Cynthia, please hear this and I am speaking from direct experience and observation.
I have seen close family friends go through some of what you are with your mother and sister. To be honest with you there is deep resentment and jealousy there with your sister. Your mother maybe too blunt and not as diplomatic as you would like but your sister definitely keeps the pot stirred.
At your party, right before you make your entrance is not the time for them to both chime in and in such an extremely negative way. Cynthia, you are always being the pleaser and respecting others FAR MORE than they respect you. Just because you are beautiful and nice does not mean that you are weak. It means you believe in treating others with at least a modicum of courtesy and respect.
Your friend, can't remember his name, but I love him, he is so wise and just has an elevated state of awareness.
Your mother and sister I seriously doubt have ever apologized to either you or Peter for their dispicable behavior at your wedding. He has every right to be over the nonsense, however his joking hit a nerve because that is the way your sister feels - on the outside looking in, maybe he really should not have done that. She just seems like an extremely passive aggressive (theme for all the different housewives shows) and defensive person. I know you are loyal to your family and love your sister but enough is enough.
Mallory needs a wake up call - to say that her position as your sister is more important than Peter's as your husband referencing he should be the one to extend the olive branch! Ah, hello, he didn't try to END a marriage before it began.
Do whatever makes you happy, but making your own way, great life along the way you to make some very uncomfortable decisions but at the end of the day you can't allow ANYONE, whether mother, sister or friend do their utmost to wreck your marriage and be controlling. I was so saddened by their words, you took it in. One I get it, the cameras, but it wasn't the time.
Maybe you and your family (Peter and your daughter) should move to NYC! Your marriage is just that your marriage and you have got to be able to trust your family with your heart and not take adavantage of your love for them.
Good luck with all, you are a classy and obviously gorgeous woman and people will always be jealous or just want someone to be at odds with. God bless and much success in all your endeavors...
P.S. Please watch your back with backstabber Sheree - she will run the bus over you not just throw you under it! JUST LIKE SHE DID WITH PHAEDRA when Sheree herself made the idiotic decision not to pursue her ex the way that a laywer told her to - derr what did she think was going to happen especially after she forewarned him and it says a lot about her desperation and lack of character to ever have gotten married to a man who literally acts like a juvenile delinquent outside the courtroom. Classless - and no amount of money in the world will buy her class!
---Your sister and your mother are your blood. They have good reasons to be unhappy with Peter. Peter makes no effort to get along with Mallory. He doesn't love you enough to try. At the very least, he could be civil. Publicly humiliating her was callous and insulting to Mallory, your mother, and you.Yet, you defend him. Who has really been there for you for your life? If I were Mallory, I would feel incredibly hurt and betrayed by you. At the very least, you could tell him you won't tolerate it anymore. If you can't do that, you are not a good sister.
You can also ask Mallory to tell you why she is concerned about Peter (although his speech showed EXACTLY the kind of man he is), allow her to have her opinion, and then say you appreciate her love and concern, but you need to deal with your marriage on your terms, so can she just focus on her relationship with you. Tell Peter to stop alienating your family.
It is very difficult to understand this union. I think you'd be better off as a Runaway Bride.
You go Cynthia. Stand your ground and don't allow your sister or mother, influence or become a problem for you and your husband. She is completely out-of-line. She needs to mind or get her own business, or stay out of your relationship. You are correct to dismiss her from your life if she continues to disrespect your relationship.
Stay firm and don't compromise. You are absolutely right in the position you've taken. Good for you!!!
Why is your sister so involved with your marriage she seems almost obsessed and how come she is never with her husband. If he travels (I think I remember hearing in one episode he goes to europe) why then doesn't she travel with him. He is never around for anything the parties nothing. Why don't your sister focus on her own marriage, I think that is where her real problems lye.
Cynthia your family needs to leave your marriage alone and just be family, if you are happy, they should be also. Because in the end the only thing that matters is your happiness.
Your sister really needs to get a life!! The look on her face when she talks about Peter and about wanting to be in the limo are very telling! She is dangerously jealous of you! There is a spark of evil there and I think you should be very cautious around her. Who the heck is she to question how much money the party cost? Going back to her horrible stunt at your wedding by hiding the marriage license. It is creepy the way she is ALWAYS lurking in the background. She is trying to be famous by proxy and you should watch yourself. Peter hit the nail on the head with her last year.....she is jealous and insecure! Be leery of creep Mal! She is like the evil step sister to Cinderella. And your Mama does not make things any better. It is like they are more concerned with the piece of the pie you provide them than they are about your happiness. Be careful gal.
I felt really sorry for Mallory because of the way you and Peter both treated her at your party. Your husband was WAY out of line to single her out with a humiliating insult in the middle of the toast and you were also WAY out of line to corroborate by reprimanding and blaming her when she became rightfully upset. Sure, families don't always get along, and I can see why Peter would be upset with Mallory with respect to the wedding, but at least Mallory didn't make a show of disrespecting Peter. She had been concerned about you, that's why she did what she did. The same cannot be said of Peter.
You say you are attracted to his "strength" but he is in fact weak; I think you've mistaken the fact that he has strong feelings for strength and they are not the same thing. I hope you will leave him because you deserve better and because you are already absorbing his callous and immature behavior and turning it around on family.
Cynthia, your sister is jealous of you. She seeks out opportunities to diss Peter and where does she get off questioning who pays for what? It's none of her business and Im glad your standing up to her and your mother. If it were me I would have to disowned them for about six months until they apologized for their negative behavior. Mallory is miserable in her own marriage and therefor needs to create disfunction in your's to get satisfaction. Misery loves company.
Why don't you show your husband tough love and let him know that your sister has been there before him she'll be there after him cause he has problems your best friend (who congrats on his weight ) even he can see what you ain't willing to and that is your husband is an asshole who continues to talk shit about your sister and to make it a point at a gathering is embarrassing. but it's papa smurf who should be embarrassed and you for allowing that kind of disrespect to be acceptable. If he knew he can't act like that he wouldn't.
I don't think Peter was interested in the party or anniversary at all. I think he wanted to have the party just to get back at her sister so Cynthia is the one that needs to be concerned. That whole party was a set up! Remember he left when she opened her modeling agency????
Cynthia, you are so beautiful and one of my favorites. You have a gentle spirit and I like that. Your sister and Mom need to mind their own business. period. You are a married woman and that's that. If they don't like it then it is their problem not yours! Peter on the other hand should not bait them either. He needs to man up and keep his mouth shut too.
Plain&simple,Cynthia...Your sister is painfully jealous of you,which is not your problem and she is controlling which is just selfish,even if she has your best intrests at heart...its SELFISH.I think she is a grown woman and if she wants to be included in your social-w/-husband life she will have to get over "it".Peter clearly is not going to change for her...for your realationship,perhaps in time.I can't blame him...he married you!!!Not her!!!Someone needs to be the bigger person and it is wrong of her to put these stipulations on you.Run your own life,Sister...thank you very much...but...no,thanks!!!!This too,shall pass!!Be well.
Cynthia, your sister is protecting you or at least trying to, because your head is in the clouds over your husband who is a complete loser! If I were your sister, I'd never speak to you again after what you did to her at your party. She sees right thru your man, but not you! WAKE UP before you're completely broke!
I just finished watching the show, I agree that her sister needs to let Cynthia live her life w/ Peter but Peter is a man. He is on the show acting like a woman. You do not talk about another woman like that. Respect works both ways. If my sister married a man like Peter then I would be voicing my opinion as well (in private and when the time is right) and I know there is a time and a place. Cynthia sister only talks to her when they are alone. Her sister is not going to a public event putting Peter on blast. He is not a good man when you exclude her sister like that. He should be the bigger person and let it go. He is not man b/c he depends on Cynthia money to much. Maybe he needs to read Steve Harvey's Book "Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man" b/c he is acting like a female dog.
@ HaukuAmil, I totally agree with you,Peter has his issues but Mal needs to mind her own buisness, Cynthia tells her too much of her buisness. Mallory always has questions about these grown married peoples finances, I mean GET A LIFE!!! Sshe needs to worry about her own husband before some other woman starts handling her buisness for her. And then everytime you see her she's crying... it makes you want to shake the "idunnowat" outta her.
