Anguilla Antics

Cynthia dishes on the RHOA romantic getaway.

Welcome to Anguilla! I love this island because it is so romantic! The people of Anguilla are friendly, beautiful, and gracious. This is one of my favorite islands, and I was very excited for the ladies to experience it as well. First, I want to say a special thank you to Marvet Britto (The Britto Agency) and my husband Peter Thomas for putting together this fabulous couples retreat. I know you guys put a lot of time and effort into making sure that everyone was happily accommodated. Love you, Marvet! I love you, Peter! Also a big thank you to Ani Villas for our exquisite villa! I know that it is impossible to please everyone, but I think everyone had a great time. Your staff's patience and kindness was greatly appreciated. I have been to Anguilla many times for modeling shoots in the past, but this trip hands down will be my most memorable!

No More Excuses:

We all cracked up when NeNe started singing EXCUSES! And, yes she actually made up the song on the spot. I smell a smash hit! NeNe could sing it, Kandi could produce it, Phaedra could handle all our legal affairs, I could be the model, a portion of the proceeds could go to Porsha's Hosea Feed the Hungry and Homeless, and Kenya's bodyguard can work security for us.

The Hand That Rocks the Boat:

The boat ride was scary and really fun at the same time. Kenya definitely knows how to rock the boat! Of course my initial thought was that Kenya was trying to toss me overboard! LOL! I couldn't give Kenya the satisfaction of getting rid of me so easily, and I held on for dear life! No shark bait today! On a good note, Kenya did get us to Anguilla in half the time it would normally take, and my bared breasts were the headlights that the led the way!

Who's Getting Some Tonight?

Peter and I truly enjoyed relaxing, spending some alone time together, and, um, taking advantage of our rose petal covered bed. Our businesses keep us both very busy, and we were well overdue for releasing some sexual tension. Over and over again!Can You Hear Me Now?

NeNe and Gregg are so cute together. It is obvious these two are still very much in love with each other and need to work it out. However, I'm going to need my “I'm rich bitch" girl to buy Gregg a hearing aid. I can't take it!

The Rules:

I'm with Phaedra on this one. The "let's throw other people's husbands and wives in the pool game" is a no-no. As married folks, there have to be some boundaries that need to be respected. Also I can't say I am a fan of the "who would swing with whose spouse" game either.

Dance Too Much Booty in the Pants!

I was not really bothered by Kenya dancing with Peter. We were all dancing and having a good time. Yes, the little "bend over booty shake part" was a little extra, but overall I thought it was pretty harmless. I am a really secure woman, and the only booty that shook Peter that night was mine!

Chicken of the Sea

When Phaedra walked downstairs in a thong swimsuit with a fish net over it, I almost choked on my egg sandwich! There is nothing like seeing that donkey booty up close and personal, and she was definitely the catch of the day!

Tune in next week to RHOA at 9/8c on Bravo. I appreciate and love you guys!

Claudia: I Felt Good About the Reunion

Claudia Jordan shares her thoughts on NeNe Leakes' breakdown and the reunion as a whole.

Bravotv.com: What was going through your mind when NeNe walked off?
Claudia Jordan: Well the reunion was quite an experience. When NeNe walked off, initially I wasn't sure what was going on to be honest. But I did notice she seemed to be trembling, so I knew she was definitely feeling something very real to her. I just didn't know what set her off at that point. So at first I was a little taken back. I had never seen her cry, but we are all human and everyone has their breaking point.

Bravotv.com: Do you think NeNe had a real breakthrough?
CJ: I honestly did think at that moment she really did. Her demeanor was different afterwards. And I even heard from her after the show. That to me was a good sign that perhaps we could all really move forward and start fresh. I know I'm always open to squash some beef, especially if it's nothing deep rooted and something surface. I don't see why not. But like I said on the show, we all have a story and things that we have had to deal with and overcome. I think we need to not think our problems are bigger than the next woman's and respect one another's struggles -- whether we think they are major or minor. One woman's problems are not more important than the rest. And I think if we can all learn to be sensitive to the next woman, then we are on our way. Hopefully that moment was the catalyst for change in NeNe and in others as well.

Bravotv.com: Do you feel like everyone ended the reunion in a better place?
CJ: I'd like to think so. I do think some will probably never be open for change and are just stuck in their own way, while others really took advantage of the opportunity to take something from it all. I'm not going to worry about those that do not wish to grow and move forward. I will just focus and give energy to likeminded individuals that want to get along, move forward, grow, learn, and progress. I know I felt good about the reunion. I know I didn't chime in a whole lot. And I think I had good reason. You don’t get to see everything, but I felt it was important to let the people who had real issues with each other hash it out with no outside opinions, just like I said in the Philippines. When people interject their opinions and thoughts when it’s not their issue, it just adds confusion to the situation. One of the cast members in particular is good for that. Always adding "well I think..." when it has absolutely nothing to do with her, and I feel those extra unnecessary comments can potentially add fuel to the fire and then there is no coming back. So if my silence was going to help the progress of the group moving forward, then I will take that "L."

Yes, it's "cute" to "read" and get in an epic one liner or rant, but sometimes you just need to shut the hell up and let folks deal with each other and let them do them. I have no problems with that. Plus my opinion on everyone’s situation doesn't need to always be heard -- I wish more of us felt the same way. I will say that this seemed to be a great starting point for folks to move forward and put their money where their mouths are when it comes to being a grown ass woman. I really hope everyone wants to. It'd be great to see how things could go if we spent less time fussing and more time co-existing peacefully. #ThatIsAll

 

As the season has come to an end for me, I just wanted to say wow! What a roller coaster ride it has been! I had no idea getting into this that any of it would happen. I thought I'd come on board, have a little fun, bring a little light-hearted fun, and make some new acquaintances. This show is huge and everywhere I go people come up to me and say such amazingly sweet things, and I am truly humbled when they tell me how they can relate to me and appreciate my realness. I was particularly touched when a teenage boy who was gay and biracial that had always felt like an outsider reached out to me talking about suicidal thoughts he had. We spoke and I was beyond moved when he told me that he could relate to some of the things I spoke about and that I somehow inspired and encouraged him to keep going. Those are the moments that make all the drama and fussing and fighting truly worth it. I want to continue to use this amazing platform for important issues. Again I thank Andy, Carlos, Joy, Lauren, Stephen, the entire cast and crew for this amazing opportunity. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
