Cynthia Bailey

Cynthia thinks the girls need to remember the golden rule.

on Nov 21, 20110

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?

I love Cynthia, because she is what a woman should represent. She is so intelligent and smart, but need to lose that looser of a husband. I think i would have done what her sister and mother did to my sister. They felt that he was a train that was going to derail any moment and the truth is now coming to light. I know that the past is the past but her daughters father seems to be in a great place and she seems to be also. Maybe they can look into seeing each other again. Her husband thinks he is still young and acts out like a child when she talks to him. He disappears from her opening when she was at his from the time it opened possibly till it closed. He is a moocher, he thinks that he should run things and i believe that he would talk to NeNe if not already. Please find peace Cynthia because it is not with Peter. You need to research his past a little deeper and find out why he has all these kids, why he is not with any of the women and why did he have faild marriages. He is not for you and you desrve better. I am on your mother and sisters side with this. They have your back and they know more than the viewers why you shouldnt have married this man.

I must admit i thought the same as some of these people on here with you needing to get a backbone and as much as I still think that you need to be a little more stern I see that you are a smart women you don't need to air all of your dirty laundry to everyone or you tastefully allow others to put their own feet in their mouths so you don't have to do it for them. I am not sure I see it like everyone else...they keep attacking Ne Ne and yourself first of all EVERYONE on the show talks about everyone point blank period!!! Yes some people may do it more than others Ne Ne does but hey she has ALWAYS been that way why the hatred now? Kandi was inappropriate in the way she asked Marlo how she gets her money she kepy probing until she told her from men...if you already knew that then why ask? I was VERY confused at why they stated Peter started it...um NO I watched the shoe Phaedra started it she is the person who bought it up and then on top of that stated that Peter talked about Sheree pulling another person into the issue???!! What was the big issue with his article? Even if he did talk about them...isn't everyone on a nationals show and they talk about each other EVERY week on TV???? Why would the magazine cause such a stir???!!! IDK...I think you have layed it all out on the line and hit the nail on the head addressing each and every person GREAT job couldnt have said it better myself!

Cynthia is a wonderful person but she needs a backbone transplant. Her husband is disrespectful and borderline abusive. He seems to be a little jealous of Cynthia's attempts at entrepreneurship ; why else would he just up and leave during her opening event. She also needs to fire her sister Mallory, she needs to mind her business and her attitude really sucks. I really dislike Mallory because instead of supporting her sister, she just tries to make her life more miserable.

Cynthia, i think that you need to grow some backbone. You are such a lobster, if you claim to be such a good friend to NeNe, tell her when she is wrong. That is what a true friend does

It says it all, when someone said you have no back bone, at least that's what your showing on TV. It's one thing to be at Nene's deffense, it's another to be her puppy and whinning for her when she's not around like you two are the best of friends, yeah right! Sooo obvious, stay sweet and keep getting stepped over passive agressive Cynthia!

Ummmm what Cynthia has would be called... being a blogger tough guy, right in there with telephone tough guy. It's one thing to not want to start conflict and if your going to let it go then truly LET IT GO. If you have something you want to say or get off your chest just say it to THAT person. Speak your mind and back up what you say but don't take the chicken-shiznezzzz way out and blog it. Be strong and of good courage, don't be skeeered.... Funny thing is I like you ALOT but I just don't cut for being too weak to speak your own mind.

CYNTHIA PLEASE PLEASE DONT MAKE ME READ YOU GIRL!!!! YOU NEED TO KNOCK IT OFF. YOU DO HAVE KEYBOARD COURAGE. YOU SIT LIKE A BUMP ON A LOG ON THE SHOW AND YOU R NEE NEES ???????? I REALLY DONT KNOW WHAT TO CALL YOU.. BUT YOU ARE TRULY BLIND TO THE FACTS...WOW!!!!IF YOU CANT SEE..EVEN AFTER WATCHING THE SHOW ..WELL WHAT CAN I DO BUT JUST SIT BACK A WATCH YOU LOOK ????? IF I CANT SAY SOMETHING NICE THEN LETS NOT SAY ANYTHING AT ALL....

I think you are awesome. Please stay true to yourself. When you are in the public eye, everyone has an opinion about your life, marriage and relationships. The very people with the negative comments probably have some of the same issues and more - and they are not being scrutinized. I noticed that some comments don't have a real name attached - cowards. Keep up the good work girlie.

Yeah, seems to me that Cynthia only has keyboard courage right now. She NEVER says anything to any of the other women, but she is quite speedy at running to the computer to blog about it. THAT is an epic fail!

Also, The Bailey Agency? That is one of the things Cynthia claims to be so busy doing when she is off her leash. Well... I don't know about any of you other viewers, but I don't have any recollection of Cynthia's name (or face) ever being mentioned or talked about as a top model... or even a top BLACK model. And simce they're far and few between, you would think that if she had as much success as she claims in modeling, that we would at least have known about her or at least recognized her face from somewhere before the show?

I think that Cynthia has self-esteem issues. This is why she is married to (controlling) Peter and up NeNe's ass every chance she gets. It is also why she runs to this blog as if it is her day job.

I think it would be wiser for you to rise above it then pull a Nene and hate on everyone only because they hurt your feelings. It sucks they said bad things, but own it and talk to them like an adult. You can tell them how you feel and if it doesnt work out, its doesnt work out. Don't waste your time hating on everyone on here you already do it on tv and aint pretty. :-/

Mallory owes Peter an apology. Mallory needs to mind her own business. Mallory obviously did not like you commenting on her relationship so why does she think it's okay to do the same to you?

Stay strong Cynthia and good luck to you and Peter!

Wow...for someone not taking anything personal, that is all your blog was about. No offense to you, but you do look like you have your nose caught between nene's butt cheeks. That, and you need to learn how to control your man. Being the mom of a young girl, its not good to let her see mom being bullied by both her *friend* and her husband. Your blog is just shameful girlfriend...not funny or sugar w/spice, but just plain shameful and spiteful. If I were the other girls I wouldn't invite you to crap.

I was reading your blog and going over the comments that the viewers wrote to you and let me just say 1 thing you and peter are very blessed to be married and to have gotten married. Cause your wedding was just beutiful, nice and very pretty. And that whole peter, apollo, and phaedra thing oh well i saw that episode and i was like hmmmmm what again. Why would peter talk about phaedra or sheree though? Did he talk about the other houswives as well to including you or not? Cause if he didn't then he left all of you out. And no wonder apollo and phaedra were pissed off and ticked off and including sheree to . As far as your mom and sister go it seems to me that your sister is trying to be your mom or something and your mom your sister lol. That to me doesn't make any sense at all. And what leon told peter does make alot of sense. Your daughter noelle is very cute. And your agency if i had the body i would go to your agency and work it lol. good luck with that. take care! luv ya!

Cynthia you are a very kind and sweet woman, but your husband has issues, he remind me of Nene he argues with everybody, and please listen to your mom and sis, and think about your daughter, don't let peter drain your finances.

Sherri G

Yes!!! Spot on...on all points. Just one thing though, Peter scares me. He seems extremely controlling and much to whiny. He has the attributes (it seems) of being abusive. Whether verbal or otherwise, I'm not sure but he worries me. However, only you know your relationship so stick by your man if everyone's got him all wrong.

Cynthia,

I can't help but think that Peter saw you coming. I know you've probably heard the song "I can do bad by myself", if not please ask someone from Atlanta to find it for you. I really think you need to listen to it. What has Peter brought to the marriage? He is so selfish. I don't think he's committed for the right reasons. He told Leon "if it don't work it don't work". It hasn's been that long since you guys were married and already he's so negative. You to were not equally yoked. You need to think about Noel's future. Peter see's you as his cash bank and you should not feel quilty by saying to him "no more". When you're tapped out of cash and becomes totally dependent on him he will have you just where he wants you, in control. He doesn't know how to make wise business decisions and when your money runs out so will he. As for Nene, the stripper who hates strippers, she's so fake. She's trying so hard to be classy but she's trashy. She hates anyone who doesn't make her the center of attention. She didn't get the attention she needed by her mother nor father so she craves attention from anyone thats in her circle. If someone fails to give it to her you're nothing to her. YOU'RE HER ENABLER. You allow it and back her when she falls out with someone.

I commend Cynthia for holding her stance. Her sister was dead wrong although I know she is trying to look out for her sister but she also needs to mind her business.

Cynthia, this was well said. I wish you the best.

SN: I would like for you to be just a tad bit stronger, especially around the other women. Sometimes I think you let some of the other women talk to you in a way that you do not deserve. Please put some of them in check lol!

Thanks!

Cynthia, pls step outside the emotions your feeling right NOW. I went through something similiar where I Loved, adored and worked at my then marriage. Seven years of giving from my very core only to have the man EVERBODY kept warning, talking and begging me to be mindful/careful of ran off with another woman tried to sue me for my finances, home, etc. Im still recovering from that tyraid of slippery slope of heartbreak. He moved on but im still trying to because I loved him with my ALL, he got deathly ill and required many specialists and he lost everything but I stood by him even with knowing about the cheating. I tried to reconcile like a fool only to have him tell me it was because i didnt do sexually some of the thigs she did, when i thought i was satisfying him after we had just talked about it and he assured me i had nothing to worry about. I don't want you to go through that nor your child and i have two that had to see what happened and yes he too was a business man, with MY MONEY...Be in prayer, and really really consider your child and your future together with Peter. PLEASE!

Cynthia, Live Your Life, Love Your Husband and Continue To Do Whatever You Choose. It's Called Growing and Learning... And Who Haven't Showed Up To An Event Late. Even If It Was Five Hours. But Really, That Was A Tab Bit TOOOO Late. Most Importantly You Showed Up. And My Thought About Hubby, Well We All Have Moments In Our Life We Wish We Could Take Back. Anger Is Never Settled, Just Lava Waiting To Be Brewed and/or Overflowed By The Right/Wrong Person. Grace Is Something You Display and It's So Easy To Get Caught Up With The Everyday Life Of Others That Can and/or Sometimes Change Who You Are. Television, That's All It Is.....

Cynthia you remind me a lot of myself always want 2 see the best in some1 always tryn 2 save some1 from themselves. I have 2 grown children age 30 & 23 and an 11 year old, I have a husband who is fighting an addiction and is now incarcerated. I recently lost my photography business all because I put everybody's needs before mine. I've been in bad health for several years now but continued 2 try to be successful but also continued to dragg the dead weight of others who did not want the best for me. You have a kind spirit and I can feel it when I watch and listen 2 you. I trusted & loved my husband he robbed me of everything including my selfworth but I had to hit my own rock bottom. I like NeNe she does keep it real & at the end of the day you make the final decision for your life NeNe cannot influence what you say or do. These reality shows are clearly about ratings. The only other 2 women who r professionally inclined self supporters r Phadra & Kandi & thats bcause they r independent women. NeNe is my favorite bcause she is the underdog & could careless what peep think she's on the road 2 a new life. Don't let any1 dictate 2 u who your friends should b. You treat peep the way they treat u until they give u a reason 2 treat them otherwise. Whatever u do deal with your marriage the way u feel in your heart because you will be the 1 who will have to live with your decision every1 else with their unwanted comments will be still doing their own thing & you will be misereable because of a decision that was made under presssure. Mayb it would b wise 2 watch some of these episodes yourself alone so you can see for yourself from the outside looking in. Most of all Cynthia Pray until something positive happens 4 you. This world is not about gifts & parties you can't take any of those things with you when your life is over its about being happy and prosperous with the life that God has given you, no 1 is promised 2mrrw make 2day count & don't worry about what happened yesterday, there's nothing you can do 2 change those events they're gone. Whomever doesn't like the way you conduct your lilfestyle so be it. Its not mandatory that they be a part of it anyway they can just move around. Gossip makes billions look on the magazine racks, always remember as long as your name is being mentioned on some1's lips you r being thought about the moment you no longer can hear your name u know there is a serious problem. Keep your head up, you are a child of God your beauty is truly in the spirit that dwells within you!!! SHOUT OUT FROM CHITOWN

Love you, Cynthia! You are very intelligent, classy and beautiful. So, when people say you have no backbone it's because they have nothing better to say.

I was surprised to see that you were not prepared to deal with Wendy Williams. She can be vicious and I KNOW that she caught you completely off guard. You almost appeared to be tearful near the end of that interview/verbal beat down. That's why I don't believe that your wrote that blog where you supposedly blasted the other women. I don't believe it.

Your new best friend NeNe is intimidated by women who are smart, successful and powerful. When she encounters women like the aforementioned, she goes into attack mode. Be honest about what you see with your own eyes.

I think you are beautiful and capable of always rising to the top regardless of any bumps in the road that you may encounter. Be careful by not being in denial regarding red flags that may be waving right in front of your face.

Cynthia, You went in on all of them just like they needed to be gone in on. They all think you are so sweet but, you are like me nice to a point and when you go off you go off. I like how you addressed each and everyone of them with the issues you had with each of them so there was no mistake. Phaedra was wrong for bringing that issue up at that time and then sitting back and watching the fight go down. Sheree needs to just be quiet because she doesn't have a heel to stand on. She by Sheree will never be! Kim I'm not even going to waste my time talking about her because she means nothing. She's a gold digging faker so don't sweat the small stuff. Get your money, raise your daughter, take care of your business and be with your man. These girls don't have nothing on you remember that!

Good blog. Cynthia stands up for herself people hate and say she's not classy. Cynthia stays quiet and she's a doormat. You can't win with some people. It's best to ignore them and keep it moving, same with the other hating housewives.

Well said, Cynthia!! I loved every bit of it, and it was spoken like a true champ. You are a breath of fresh air compared to the other bitter women: Kim, Sheree, and Phaedra! Like you said if you can't take don't dish it! Good for you, Cynthia! Love you, keep your head up, because nothing but good things and blessings will come your way!

You said Sheree gave you advise on taking things personal well this blog was REAL PERSONAL :-)

Also I like you Cynthia. You seem to smart and beautiful on the inside and out. However with all due respect, who would allow their husband to make an article on women. Men shouldn't get involved in their women affairs. It is very childish. His remarks was childish. You saying that Phaedra started it is almost ignoring the fact that if the things were not said by Peter in the first place the argument wouldn't have happen.

I get he was upset at what people said about your wedding, honestly who cares?! If your happy why are spending time defending it? You made your situation known to them by being vocal about your situation prior to your wedding and now you are mad that they have an opinion about it, which they are entitled to.

I like you Cynthia, but seriously check yourself girl and your man!

Cynthia-I hope we aren't watching the collapse of your marriage this season. I don't know how (or why) you put up with Peter's tirades. If you accept it, you approve of it. Think twice, and try to stay classy.

Well Well Ms. Cynthia I loved how you summed it all up lovely. This season it seems like a lot negativity going around. I love how everyone is buddy buddy with everyone else who has talked about them and even fought them but they have a problem with NeNe and Cynthia????? Are you serious????? Please Apollo didn't do anything that Peter didn't do they both got up they both were loud so how was he the bigger man??? I must have missed that part. How did Peter come there and think he was going to beat Apollo when Apollo started the fight?? Sheree is up Kim's ass now so she doesn't have room to talk. I love Peter and i think that your relationship with great!!! All relationships have room to grow. I don't think that you don't stick up for yourself i just think you don't wanna hurt anyone's feelings or make anyone uncomfortable (i'm a Pisces too) sometimes that gets mistaken for being a push over but like you said if you come for us we will come for you nothing push over about that!!!! Keep your head up, keep cashing your checks keep loving your man and don't people who don't have the mental capacity to understand you judge you!!!!! Stay blessed boo

Good points. . .but you must have selective memory becasue I did see kim give you a card. . . Dont know if any money was in it, but maybe you should check with Peter. You stick up for Peter, but he doesnt give a damn about you and your family (like he told Leon). . . if it fails. . . it fails. . . That makes you look great! I could go on and on and on. .. but there is a reason why people say you dont have a spine. . .

Wedding gifts are not mandatory, they are nice but you didn't have the wedding just to collect presents did you? Showers on the other hand are all about giving gifts and if had intended not to give a gift then you should have stayed home.

I thought you had more class than that.

Instead of writing a negative, passive aggressive blog, I would suggest that you stand up to the ladies in person. It's so easy to hide behind your keyboard. Also, in case you haven't noticed, your husband is not only a financial drain, but an emotional one as well. Your mother, and sister, were right about Peter from the very beginning.
