It was Nene's idea to not make the party just about her own success, and to make it a celebration for all the successful women in our circle. I loved it! At least for one afternoon the girls would get all dolled up, sip champagne, and celebrate each other. The party was a huge success, the ladies were stunning and positive affirmation filled the air. However, there were a couple of bumps in the road:
Kenya telling Phaedra and Kandi that JET magazine asked her to be a judge at The Bailey Agency.
Cynthia -- that's the first lie. I invited Kenya to The Bailey Agency, and had I not she would have not been there, period. Out of the kindness of my heart I asked JET if they would mind if she joined us. While they weren't exactly jumping up and down about it, I got them to agree to let her come.
Tip: Never tell a lie that you will definitely get caught in. Especially if the truth will eventually play out on national television.
Sidebar: No one has the authority to invite anyone to do anything at The Bailey Agency without my approval. EVERYTHING has to go through me first since it is my school.
Kenya telling Phaedra and Kandi that her security kicked Carlton (my assistant) out of The Bailey Agency.
Cynthia -- And that would be the second lie. The man at the school with Kenya approached Carlton, we all had words, and he was told to have a seat. That's exactly what he did. End of story.
Sidebar: I had no idea that guy was her bodyguard . I just assumed he was a family member who just came along with her for the car ride.
