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.
Love you girl.. they should get rid of the smalls and just have the talls,, the smalls are so boring !!! i hate watching the show when the talls don't have that much screen time
Why am I not surprised that you would take NeNe's side in not getting her child out of jail the minute she was told about it. mm mm mm
For once I agree with Peter... Peter must know some things that go on inside those places. I Would not give a damn what my child did (besides murder or something along these lines) and I would not give a damn where I was at I'd still rush home and get his behind out!!!
I've never been so angry reading one of these blogs like this one!!!!!!!!!!
Cynthia, can you get a clue honey, or are you that hard up to have a friend like nene??? UGH!
I pity that boy. :(
TOUGH LOVE… for sure! (The Irony of Cynthia’s words)
This message is for Mallory: You are a beautiful, caring woman who truly has her family’s best interest at heart. It’s so apparent that you love your sister Cynthia but she is not ready to listen to you or anyone for that matter when it comes to her husband. I know it’s hard to watch someone you love being taken advantage of, especially by a man who doesn’t truly love them. Just be there when she needs you and that will be very soon. Cynthia needs a dose of Tough Love, unfortunately she will learn the hard way.
Your husband Peter's advice to Nene is stupid as always. He's not gonna learn a lesson from bailing him out...and that's not Tough Love.
Wow. No gift for your husband of 1 year after such a big trip. He's obviously on your mind when you are away, NOT.
I feel for Nene and what she is going thru with her son going to jail for something so small and petty. I think he is taking her dor granted for everything she has done for him. Then again it could be krama... Nene keeps drama going between the girls therefore things happen in her life that shouldn't be.
Appreciate you taking the higher road in this episode. You stirred the pot too much in the previous episode. These women are CRAZY and will fight over any and every thing. Not sure I can endure much more of this behavior. Screeching and squalling til they are almost speaking in tongues. Sheree I really blame for all the mess at the end of the last episode and this one. You can just see her delight and how sneaky she is. Does Kim's head not remember when the Shrew Sheree tried to pull off her very secure wig??? One would think she would remember that incident and not put her relationship with Sheree into fairyland. Kandi did nothing wrong.
Thanks for blogging! I just felt bad for Peter since you didn't get him a souvenir from Africa. His feelings seemed hurt. But other than that you seem very happy. Best of luck!
Im proud of you and Peter for making your marriage work. That is an important accomplishment. Im not sure Peter is your provider yet as you expected but he is trying. I also think he expected an arm candy model and got a strong, opinionated female. But kudos to the both of you and Happy Anniversary.
NeNe was 100% right when it came to dealing with Bryson: He certainly needed to sit in the jail for a moment over the shoplifting, so he could think about whether or not he'd ever want to make a return trip to jail for a much longer stay over something a lot less trifling than two razors.
I hope Bryson re-evaluates where he's going and WHO he's going with, and realize that his Mom NeNe loves him. I remember a long time ago the episode when NeNe was taking to Bryson to college. I thought she was a good Mom then too!
I just have to say Sheree is a messy hypocrite. She judges Marlo for messing with an old wealthy man but now she is bff with Kim who slept with a married man for money. I am disgusted with her and Kim and can't stand to watch the two of them. Kandi was right about Kim, she is high maintenance... Remember the tour she and Kandi went on... She behaved like a high maintenance prima Donna with no talent or class.
You're right about a big deal made out of nothing. The show would be so much better to watch if there were more charity activities and less bickering about Marlo loving her fashions or Nene saying she's rich or if Kim would have gone to Africa or not and all the she said stuff. I like it when you replied to Phaedra when she said we were just talking about you after you all talked on the boat. You said, but you can't talk about me no more. You were reminding her that you all had agreed to stop doing stuff like that.
Cynthia you are so freaking 2 faced... Somebody one day is going to kick your butt. I hate watching the show when you are on the screen. You dont make any sense and dont know how to stand up for yourself. Let me tell you something honey " you will either stand for something or fall for anything"
I just dont get why you feel the need to constantly try and throw little digs in towards Kim because of your wedding fiasco last season. Move on and be a better example for your daughter. Also, maybe you should put a filter on that husband of yours mouth, cannot believe you let him talk about and to your sister the way he does. That is your family, family before marriage sista.
It was so funny how - when Nene wanted to prove that you & Marlo had your own minds - she commanded "your girls make your own decisions, RIGHT?" And like obedient dogs - "YES" - all you left off was 'MASTER'. Wake up!
I don't really care for you, Cynthia. ( at least the you that is portrayed on TV). You are extremely two-faced and a NeNe suck up.
You are the one who caused the fight between Sheree and that crazy woman NeNe invited to Africa by running back to them after Sheree invited you to her friend's dinner.
I would never trust you again.
Grow up Girl...Find yourself..Kick NeNe and Marlo and Your husband out of your life...Because that do not have the class that you bring into a room...Look at the Women in the mirrow..
After watching episode about Nene and her son I was very inspired to write in. This situation is whats wrong with young black men. They mess up and their mama's rescue them. Nene DID THE RIGHT THING by leaving him there and leaving it up to THE LAW to decide when he gets out. He didnt kill anyone, so they wasnt going to keep him there forever.
I am very proud of Nene for doing the right thing.
Cynthia, Noelle and Peter's relationship is beautiful. How lucky you are to have a warm and loving daughter who loves and respects the lovely relationship you have with Peter. Love them both and quit your bitchin'
Hi Cynthia, forget listening to what the haters have to say, your nice and classy and loyal to your friend NeNe... I wish you the best and I know you're gonna take care of yourself. Tell you're sister to stop worrying about you because your a grown woman and are fully capable of taking care of yourself. Please do not let them draw you into the drama... stay neutral. I don't think you felt that Marlo would go off... I saw the upcoming scenes and how you felt bad that your sister was embarrassing herself, she loves you but she is way too close and needs to give your space ... its called respect. Cynthia your a sweet person and its ok for you to be loyal to your friends, it does not seem that any of the other girls know anything about that, except Kandi and Phaedra... stay the beatiiful and mature person that you are and don't air dirty laundry on the screen.
I love you Cynthia. You're beautiful. You're positive. You're a good friend. I think it goes without saying that, one large piece of drama, was all because of you, but that's over. I'm happy that you and Peter survived one year so far. I really do like Peter too. My only problem with you two is...WHY do you two make it out that you have little money and then turn around Peter goes to a party planner trying to talk the man into a low price. I know you two probably aren't truly "broke" but if you can't afford a big budget, why not just throw a nice small, private gathering of friends/family? The sight of Peter telling the party planner he had no down payment, made me cringe. The look of disdain on the party planner's face made me cringe even further.
Cynthia congrats to you And Peter on your one yr annivasery may God bless you guys with many more.i see a lot of people here living negatives comments towards you,don't pay them no mind they must not be happy in thier own lifes...love you #teamtalls....
Cynthia I have been sticking up for you when others called you a follower. But now, sadly I must agree. When NeNe wasn't around you said one thing about Marlo. But when she did come around you said the opposite. Does that not cause you any pain seeing how weak you are when the show airs? Don't you want to set a better example for young women?
cynthia, you are a nice person and good friend, your daughter noelle is a nice and well behaved child. there are a lot mean spirited evil people that don't want to see you and nene friends because they hate her. but you know her way better than they do and you know her off camera. you can't let people tell you who to be friends with, or who to marry. because you are a nice person, i think you would like to be friends with the smalls too, but you can see how two faced they are. why did you invite that evil creature sheree to your anniverary party? she came in being sarcastic and mean, she din't need to be there because she don't like you, she really don't like anyone because she is miserable as hell.
Cynthia, I hurt for you...the scenes shown from the next episode of Peter being so comfortable asking you for $1,000. after you questioned him about the party, size, expense and he said he was going to take care of everything; then when he publicly made such a nasty toast directed at your sister. How do you not see this man for what he is? He's a user and abuser!
>"Remember the tour she and Kandi went on... She behaved like a high maintenance prima Donna with no talent or class".
^^^I quoted this from Calley.^^^
But rememeber who had blue eyes do their packing... yep, Marlo and NeNe. Talk about HIGH MAINTENANCE, THAT would be those two!! So there ya go. . .
Cynthia, you are cool and a beautiful lady! Listen to your sister, she isn't all wrong with what she is telling you about Peter. As for NeNe, you can be her friend but always watch your back.
You are too beautiful and sweet to be with someone like Peter!! What were you thinking. Btw your daughter is sweet and appreciative!
Why don't you and the ladies form a group to supply the school in Africa with monthly supplies. Maybe what you ladies need is a positive project to work together on. Eating in restaurants, buying clothes and shoes just doesn't add good character. If you're living large like that, share some of the wealth with people who really need it and will appreciate whatever they get.
Cynthia, just keep on keepin' on. You know you best, and while solemn advice should be respected, the way some others try to put you and your judgement down is absolutely atrocious. You made an error in judgement by repeating, to Nee & Marlo, Sheree's invitation. That said, you acknowledged the error and tried to move on. Ultimately, it was Sheree who put you (and everyone else) in the predicament in the first place. But, that's neither here nor there.
Regarding your comments about Marlo ... it did seem as though you said one thing when not in NeNe's & Marlo's presence and then another when asked in front of NeNe. I would like to give you the benefit of the doubt and say you were trying to avoid yet another inane argument over trivialities.
Regardless, I hope you learn from this experience and stay true to yourself.
I simply cannot BELIEVE that people actually comment here regarding Cynthia's marriage to Peter. This is not right. I don't care if Peter looked like Boo-Boo the clown and didn't have a dime...that's who CYNTHIA chose to marry. Get YOUR life!
You are a beautiful, smart, gifted woman but for the love of God grow a pair. You need to have more of backbone with Nene and with your husband. Stand up for yourself!
You survived the shark invested world of modeling, you can survive the RHOA. Can you say High School... I'm just saying.
Don't pay attention to the folks telling you a damn thing about Peter, you married to him they not.
Same for our friendship with Nene, it's your friendship, how does it "bother" somebody, that's so silly
How can you afford an anniversary party when you just paid the guy for the wedding? I seriously doubt he wants to work with you guys after he had to pay for YOU!! As usual you're right up Nene's behind on your blog, give it a rest it's getting old!! Don't forget to write that check for Peter so he can bash your sister - nice!
I agree, get out Nene's shadow. It seems the few things you like about Peter is the sex and that he controls you. You want that so you dont have to make decisions. I can see you staying with Peter because you dont want people to be right. I been there. I stayed in a unhappy marriage to prove everyone who doubted us wrong. Key word unhappy. Peter is a LOOF. Chick you need to wise up. Does the good out-way the bad. Yall not a good couple. Yall dont even look good together, nor do yall work well together. I hope you stop fooling yourself in time to catch Mr.right. Dont be afraid of divorce, it happens. its a learning experience. And if you stay in unhappy mariage your daughter will think thats what a women suppose to do.
watching you and your daughter at home when kandi came over to see the talents of your daughter was so serene, she is so well behaved. it is quite the opposite when watching kim and her daughters. they are so out spoken and too much in grown folks business, dysfunction at its best. cynthia i hope your daughter stay sweet.
Cynthia, why are you letting father time bash your sister???? He knows Mal can see right thru him that's why he's always saying nasty things about her. You better listen to her because if you let him drive an unfilling gap between the two of you he will have succeeded. You are always going to need your sister!!!!!!!! So did you write the check to pay for the party?????
Hi cynthia, I had to laugh because you didn't get peter any souveniers from africa. his feelings were hurt big time, but noelle was sweet enough to him that stuffed elephant I thought that was really sweet.
Cynthia words of advice, stop thinking that the smalls are nice to you when Nene is not around. They want you to stop talking to her because they can't handle her. Sheree,Kim,Kandi and Phradra are not really your friend. I agree that Kim would not come on the trip either and what you said and Kandi agreed was not bad, it was just your opinion. Sheree will start with anybody because she is having a bad time in her life now and she is partly the blame. Stay strong.
I just saw the episode from your return from Africa and I have never heard such an ignorant statement as the one Peter said.....A woman cannot raise a man. A man can raise a man.... You my man are such an ignorant person and I beg to differ. My mother was a single mother who raised a daughter and a 1st Batallion Ranger! I'm sure he's more of a man that you will ever BE. Idiot!
Happiness lasts for a lifetime for some, while others a few hours, days or weeks. Whatever makes you happy, go for it. Peter is a great guy with a big heart that sometimes make the wrong choices. Keep sister Mal out of your lives, for your anniversary keep her out of the limo. I love her but I believe she has overstepped her boundaries. Love, love you Cynthia.
honestly? the more i watch Peter, the more i LOVE him! i can totally see why you fell for that Peter-man! i got it so bad for Peter that i get bone as soon as i hear his voice! as to why he fell for you? that's easy. you do your best to be a nice woman.
Cynthia, I know you love your husband but don’t forget to love your sister. There is nothing like family and don’t allow a man destroy it. I understand how Peter feels but at the same time he doesn’t have respect for you or your sister. It is sad the way you are treating your sister; she don’t have a problem with you, she has it with your husband!! And if you ask me, she has good reasons! You are better than that, you seem like a sweet and wonderful person; don’t allow your husband to change that!! Like you said; he is a dreamer!!
