Who's the Boss?

NeNe is still convinced that Kim is the boss of the Smalls.

All the talk about Marlo's fashion… LOL! I swear, these girls are not smart! You can definitely tell who's got extra time on their hands. Why would anyone care what designers you wear or where you get the money to buy them? Marlo wears designer, and I hold my own with designers myself, so it really doesn't affect me the way it seems to affect these ladies. They say it's all she talks about, but I find that strange. I've been around Marlo many times, and we talk about everything from family to relationships to fashion to business! It sounds like jealousy to me more than anything, because these are the same girls that were cool with Marlo!

Let me take you back a few episodes. When Marlo was first coming around, she hung out with the Smalls! They loved her from what I could see. She was with the Smalls at the opening of Bar One where they all sat together and talked about me having a relationship with Charles...NOT!  From what I understand and can see with these two good ole eyes of mine, they liked Marlo and were cool with her as long as she wasn't cool with me! 

I met up with Marlo to talk about all the gossip that was going on with Charles and found it was unnecessary to bicker over lies! They dropped her because she was no good for the plan they thought they had. They were doing what haters do, being envious, conspiring, and trying to figure out a way to bring you down! They wanted so badly to have me and Marlo fight over a man I was NEVER involved with sexually! They were down with her! Yes, I've heard about Marlo's past, and everybody has one. Some worse than others, but she treats me nicely, so I see no need to not do the same for her!

As far as Kim not coming to Africa because of tension between me and her, it's all lies. I've been in the same room as Kim a few times, and I give her nothing! I haven't spoken to Kim in two years and have no plans to.

The medicine man said my husband was a good man. I believe that! Gregg is a good person, which is why I married him, but a good man doesn't always equal a good husband. I know what I've been through!

On to dinner with the Smalls. I said the Smalls' boss was Kim. Miss Kandi didn't like that, but she has no problem saying Cynthia changes her mind for me or Cynthia is my puppet. All of them have said that in one form or the other! Yes, I believe Kim is the boss of the Smalls, and I'll say it again and again and again! That's just my opinion, and all these ladies seem to have them. It's only when I have an opinion that there's a problem. Well there will always be problems then, because an opinion I will always have!

I like Cynthia and Marlo! We are all busy women, and it would be pretty hard for me to control people who lead such hectic lives. Besides, that's not who I am as a person. I'm currently tri-coastal right now between Atlanta, New York, and LA. I just signed with a major brand and licensing company. I'm working on opening The L Lounge and getting various products on the market. I'm a lot of things at times, but one thing is for sure, I've always been the type of woman that stands alone, stands up for what I believe in, and doesn't need validation from anyone! I'm a mom and a business woman!

Catch me as Coach Roz on Glee on Tuesday nights at 8pm on Fox! Tune in to see me on Let's Stay Together this Tuesday night on BET. If you're coming in or out of the Sacramento airport, visit my restaurant, Famous Famiglia. More stores opening this year!

Until next time my loves, stay rich and bloop bloop!

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)!
