Tough Love

Cynthia really felt for NeNe as she dealt with the Bryson drama.

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. On the subject of Bryson, honestly, I understood both points of view. As a mother myself, if my child committed a small, stupid, low-level crime and ended up in jail, I would want to teach them a lesson for sure. However, I would never want my child in a situation that could be dangerous or even fatal. I would worry myself to death! I believe in tough love, but I guess you really don't know how you will react until you are actually put in that situation. My heart really went out to NeNe, because I knew what she was going through. She was very conflicted, because even though Bryson is a young man, he is still her baby.  I'm just glad Bryson is OK, and I hope he learned his lesson. If he goes back again, Lord help him, because NeNe may just call the judge herself and tell him to keep him in there!

I'm excited that Peter wants to do a one year anniversary party. We went through a lot at our wedding (understatement), and it was a tough first year. However, we made it to our one-year anniversary despite the naysayers. I'm actually very excited to celebrate! We are not working with a Diddy budget or anything, but we can definitely afford to have a nice little gathering with our friends and family. Yes! There will be plenty of food and drinks, but I'm not sure if synchronized swimming mermaids in the pool will be in the budget! Thank you, NeNe, for helping Peter plan the party. Your love and support means a lot. I have commented on the issues in this episode that were important to me. I already addressed some of the smaller issues in my last blog. I'm done and moving on.  As always thank you everyone for watching the show. Your love and support is always appreciated.

Sending lots of love,

Cynthia

Phaedra: I Appreciated Demetria's Apology

Phaedra Parks was glad that she and Demetria McKinney could move forward.

Bravotv.com: Did you feel that you and Demetria were able to wipe the slate clean?
Phaedra Parks: I appreciated Demetria talking with me privately and apologizing; it afforded us both the chance to put our differences aside and move on. Demetria and I have very different perspectives on life, but that's what makes the world go round. This was a very important trip for her, and I certainly didn’t want my presence or any misunderstandings between us to be a distraction to her.

Bravotv.com: Were you surprised when Claudia accused Porsha of dating a married man?
PP: No, I was not surprised as this is the typical modus operandi for these women. They just throw out anything sensational and hope that something sticks. They are living proof that, "If they don't know your business, they'll make it up." This is exactly how hurtful rumors and gossip begin. #FixitJesus


Bravotv.com: Did you enjoy Demetria’s performance?
PP: I enjoyed her performance. She has a beautiful voice. I was impressed with her performance. I’d still love to hear her sing some gospel music. That's one of my favorite genres.

Bravotv.com: Were you and the girls able to have a good time despite all the drama? What was your favorite part of the trip?
PP: We managed to have some fun in between all the fighting and drama. The hotel was nice, we ate well, and the weather was perfect. My favorite part of the trip was having some girl time on the beach with NeNe, Porsha, and Kandi.
