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

Cynthia: "I Pray We Can Make Peace"

Cynthia Bailey dishes on the make up with NeNe Leakes as well as her runway walk at Fashion Week. 

Thanks for tuning in to another episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Let's jump right on in.


YOU HAVE TO GIVE RESPECT TO GET RESPECT
Once I had the opportunity to speak at the dinner table, my only issue was respect, or me feeling the lack thereof. I did not feel like the respect that I had for NeNe and her husband was being reciprocated. She has called my husband out of his name too many times to count, and still continues to do so. Until this day, I have never disrespected her husband. I believe in boundaries, and even in anger certain lines should never be crossed. There is an unspoken trust and confidentiality between friends regardless of the state of the relationship. If I felt like I could have called NeNe, and had my feelings and concerns met with an open mind and an open heart, I would have. However, we stopped communicating months before we filmed the reunion; therefore a one-on-one sit down wasn't an option. Honesty between friends should always be appreciated, especially when it's coming from a loving place. Friends applaud each other's triumphs, and check each other when they are wrong. As grown, successful, and professional women, I pray we can make peace through forgiveness of each other's faults, and can arrive at a true place of support and respect for each other. I am moving forward in grace.

 

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK
The only thing I love more than New York is New York Fashion Week! I was so excited to walk alongside two of my models from The Bailey Agency School of Fashion, Nisaa Pouncey and Chelsea Lee, in my longtime friend Kithe Brewster's Fashion show. The girls exceeded my expectations and gave me confirmation that my little school that I opened just four years ago was indeed making dreams come true! I was also asked by one of my favorite designers, Betsey Johnson, to walk in her show as well! As a woman who embraces her age, I was proud to represent the older and curvier woman during Fashion Week. Although it has always been the industry standard to use mostly younger, thinner models, I applaud designers like Betsey Johnson and Kithe Brewster for showing some "real women" on the runway as well. I hope that this is a trend, and in the future others designers follow suit. I was so excited to have Peter, Kenya, Kandi, Todd, and Noelle's dad, Leon, in New York to support me (and my big butt)!
