What Goes Around

Cynthia thinks the girls need to remember the golden rule.

Congratulations to Kim and Kroy. Kim's baby shower was beautiful, and she looked gorgeous. She was glowing and I've never seen her look happier. I wish you everlasting love, peace, and joy. I was especially touched by Brielle's speech. It was very sweet, and the part about her dad made me want to cry. It made me realize how much I appreciate the closeness between Noelle and her dad and also her relationship with Peter. As mothers, we love our children so much and try to give them the world. It is very challenging when the father is not in the picture. A strong father figure is important, because as hard as we try to be a mom and a dad, our children need the balance of both. I think Kroy's relationship with Kim's girls is wonderful. A man who loves your kids as much as he loves you is beautiful a win-win!
Tardy for the Party:

I was out of town doing a modeling shoot in Charleston. My flight got in late. Therefore I got to the shower late. I was exhausted when I landed, but I made every effort to make it anyway. After all, she did come to my wedding, brought her own bottle of wine, and said that Peter and I would not be married in a year. It was the least I could do.
Present:

Kim said I did not bring a present. I brought her the exact same present that she brought me to my wedding. Nothing. It took me hours to pick it out, and it was perfect.
   
Chateau Sheree:

Why is it always the people that have nothing going on that have the most to say? The only thing that Sheree knows about me is that I'm always up NeNe's a--. And all I know about Sheree is that she lost her man, lost her house, and lost her car. Did I leave anything out?

When Kandi asked you at the shower if you had talked to me, you made it very clear that you don't talk to me. So can you stop talking ABOUT me as well?

Puppy on a leash? Yes, and when I'm off my leash, I squeeze in time to be a mother, be a wife, take model bookings, and run my company, The Bailey Agency.

Peter thought he was going to punk Apollo? Epic fail! You must be thinking about She By Sheree. That was an epic fail.

It's not cute to borrow money from your wife? Well, I am his wife. For better or for worse, for richer or poorer?

Peter and NeNe are all bark and no bite. That's original. Did you think of that all by yourself?I was being mean to Phaedra? Um no. That would be the other way around.

Calling Phaedra:

I called Phaedra to catch up? No again. I called you about business once, and you did not call me back. Remember? However, you have reached out to me several times since then and I always pick up. Where's the beef? I would come see you if I had beef with you. We can sit down like southern belles over tea. Ever heard of a "beef and see"? It's in the same book as the "sip and see".

Village of children, a clean man, not using birth control and sleeping with everybody he ever met? Um. Throwing stones at a glass house is never wise. Strippers anyone?

Everybody Knows:

Proud Apollo did not beat Peter to a pulp? In what country?

Who is the bigger man? You pick your man and I pick mine. I guess it's a tie.

Yes, you chose to marry Apollo, and I chose to marry Peter. Do we get a medal or something?   
There is a time and a place for everything. This was not the time or the place. I was surprised that Phaedra brought up the Uptown article at the shower. We all have each other's numbers and could have easily squashed this situation. There were so many mean things said at my wedding by some of the girls that I couldn't imagine that anything Peter said would even be an issue. How does this work? They talk crazy about us whenever they feel like it, and then freak out if we say anything about them. I don't think so. The rules are simple. Be nice to me and I'll be nice to you. Come for me, then I'm coming for you. Sheree gave me great advice over the summer, which was not to take anything negative said about me personally. I thank her for that advice, and since then I haven't. It's not personal, deal with it and move on.
     
Big hugs and kisses,
Cynthia

Demetria: I Have No Beef with Kenya

Demetria McKinney addresses the Roger Bobb situation.

Bravotv.com: When did you and Cynthia originally meet?
Demetria McKinney: Cynthia Bailey and I have been really cool for a couple of years now. We run in similar social circles, and I've always loved her spirit.


Bravotv.com: Did you feel like you and Kenya resolved the issue over her photo with Roger Bobb?
DM: As for me and Kenya…hmm. Just a couple of discrepancies: She didn't know me, but remembered meeting me with Nicci. She has no interest in Roger, but got all gussied up to see him at my event and threw shade galore when he claimed me. OK, girl! LOL! As for the picture, the fact that she was in it wasn't the issue. I've been in a relationship on and off for 8 years, and when the media was loudly connecting him to someone else, I didn't like it. Period. It could've been Strawberry Shortcake, it could've been Whoopi Goldberg. The fact that I was ready to be out about us was the issue. Kenya's picture just happened to be the last straw (speaking of straw, hey NeNe). So, yeah, I have no beef with Kenya. Not worried or bothered, I'm actually looking for opportunities to celebrate each of these women!


Bravotv.com: Was it tough when Roger wasn’t able to make it to your video release party?
DM: My bae, Roger, wasn't able to be there due to WORK! Hallelujah, he is not a kept man! Thank you, Jesus, Roger is a provider not only of what is needed but also a man who will do what has to be done to make his woman's dream come true. We support each other, and if he could've been there, he would've. My heart missed him, my mind knew he missed me.


Bravotv.com: What was your first impression of all the ladies?
DM: My first impressions of the ladies…
Cynthia: Beauty and class doesn't fade
Claudia: She's stupid! LOL!
Kandi: Cool
Phaedra: Wasn't she Bobby Brown's lawyer?
Porsha: ?
Kenya: Bet you won't forget me now! LOL!


Bravotv.com: Were you disappointed that all the ladies left when the video didn’t work? Did you eventually get it to play?
DM: My video didn't play, I was a bit disappointed, but having been in the industry for this long, I know sh-- happens. You roll with the hand given to you, and you learn for the next time. Could the ladies have stayed? Sure. But if they weren't going to offer anything positive, it was probably best that they exited.
