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!

Claudia: I Could Relate to Cynthia's Insecurities

Claudia Jordan shares her thoughts on Cynthia's runway walk and the ladies' sit down.

Bravotv.com: What were your thoughts about the ladies’ big sit down to hash out their issues?
Claudia Jordan: I was really looking forward to a real resolve, and it seemed like that might happen when we saw (what I thought was) real emotion from both of the ladies. But sadly, once we heard the comments in the confessionals, we saw that only one of the ladies was truly being honest. I for sure thought when I saw NeNe leak some salty liquid from her tear ducts that she was in fact meaning what she was saying, but to so easily flip the script and throw that shade in her interview, well it was disappointing to say the least. One thing I love about Cynthia is that no matter what, she is always down to at least give someone a second chance. Some people may choose to call that weak, but I don't. I think it's easier to write someone off than it is to be open to them again once they have hurt you. Personally to me that takes real strength. I tend to hold a grudge once someone shows me their true colors, and I am great at closing the door and never looking back. So to me it was impressive that Cynthia was even open to once again trying to patch things up with NeNe. At the end of the day both ladies made a choice -- Cynthia made a choice to at least try one more time, and NeNe chose to act like she wanted to be friends again only to turn around and take it all back in her confessional. I wish I could say I am surprised, but sadly I'm not. I thought that was quite mean. Why not say that you were not interested in being friends when Cynthia was in your face? Why bother with the theatrics of crying only to later on basically say you didn't really mean it? Shady, shady, shady! If you're really about that life, say it to her face NeNe! Don't turn up in the confessionals and boo hoo in person! Where they do that at?


Bravotv.com: As a model yourself, did you sympathize with Cynthia’s insecurities about walking in a NY Fashion Week show? How was Cynthia’s walk?
CJ: I absolutely could relate to Cynthia's insecurities walking the runway with teenagers and 20-something year olds! I haven't walked a catwalk in so long, but when I did, there was such a rush that comes from when you KNOW you just did your thing and the crowd shows you love. That instant gratification is everything!

 

But I must say Cynthia did a great job, and if she was insecure, it certainly didn't show while she was on that catwalk! I thought she looked beautiful, and I was happy for her.

Bravotv.com: What inspired you and Kenya to take a cooking class?
CJ: Well I love to cook, but I don't make a TON of different things, so I'm always down to learn to make more. Although my reaction to the dessert wasn't as strong as Kenya's -- and her moans -- I thoroughly enjoyed it! It was sooo good! It was a fun experience, and Kenya never ceases to amaze me with her wild and crazy self!
