Kenya - The Book You Have No Idea!
Although I didn't invite Kenya to Anguilla (she invited herself and Kandi co-signed for her), I made every effort to be cordial to her. I even gave her a pass when I found out that she "backed that thang up" all over Peter’s genitalia! LOL! I was also genuinely excited to see that Peter invited Kenya and all of the couples to the vow renewal. I honestly felt like Kenya was happy for me, and she also seemed touched by the ceremony. Rewind. Clearly we got off on the wrong foot at the JET casting, and I honestly thought that I had seen the last of her until Kandi invited her to our brunch. Once it became clear to me that she had befriended some of the other ladies, I knew that we would occasionally bump into each other. Just because Kenya and I didn't hit it off in the beginning didn't mean that I was closed to some kind of reconciliation down the road when the time was right.
When Kenya gave me the book by Vanessa Williams at the beach, I was a little surprised! I was still on cloud nine after the vow renewal and honestly thought that we were in a good place at this point. BFFs no, cool yes! As soon as Kenya gave me my book/gift, I knew immediately that it was not with kind intentions. It was basically an attempt to "read" me and embarrass me in front of everyone, because of the Miss America comment I made at the Let Your Success Flow party. Here's the good news: I love books and always consider them to be great gifts. I live for a good read! However, since I had already chatted with Vanessa Williams personally about my upcoming pageant, the book did not prove to be very useful. I guess even in this situation, it's the thought that counts! Now the bad news: no one at the table really cared or entertained Kenya's "mean girl moment," and once again she failed get the attention she seems to so desperately want.
BTW "Beyonce," had I known that you were going to gift me a book on the trip, I would have returned the favor. Have you ever read He's Just Not That into You?
Cynthia my dear. I am watching a repeat of a episode when you met Kenya at the golf course and you two talked about a gathering that you guys had at a restaurant. WHY did you talk to Kenya about what was said when Pheadra was not there to say what she actually said? I have thought much better of you than that,
but now it seems like you are a straight up taddle tail for what you did. That was childish and immature of you to keep things going. I had always thought that you were the only one that seemed to keep it together--now look at you! Now the real question is--when you have a disagreement with NeNe will you turn on her too????? Don't like your character right about now. Go back to the way you were--#ImJustSayin'
You are gorgeous but as you know, that's not enough in life. I realize this is reality TV but you're not helping your personal/professional image by appearing two-faced and instigating every conflict. You come off as a follower and not your own person. I recall the episode (your first season) with you and an old friend from NY who talked about how the show seemed a bit out of character for you, with all of the new money behavior. I guess he didn't know you as well as he thought because you've become one of the main perpetrators of the ongoing drama. Again, this is reality TV and there wouldn't be viewers without the drama but I think Kandi does a good job standing clear of the cattiness and being upfront about her feelings about everything, with everyone but without causing mess. Take a lesson....because there will be life after this show.
I love you a lot on the show, here is my advise...STOP being such an instigator, it is not very becoming. You are too classy for that!!!!
Cynthia is beautiful, two faced, weak, a follower, a non value add!!! The end! Kim and NeNe are the best the show ever had... not watchn another season if u are there! Its proven that ppl with little or no education are simple minded and are the primary bone carriers of gossip! Get a relevant life and be a leader! Smh
I agree with (LillyK) Cynthia please don't get messy...every since Nene let u hear what Phaedra said about u, you've been very shady. If u don't care to much for Phaedra then don't be in her Face & stay in ur own lane & let her stay in hers.
I am a bit surprised you did not address Kenya's "adult" conversation, ie Kenya screaming and tantruming, on he beach. I'm sorry but...Kenya is nor friend.
Cynthia, you are becoming very messy. Your two-faced actions on the last episode shone a very unflattering light on you. Laughing about Phaedra's video and siding with that wannabe Kenya was bad enough, but when Phaedra showed up you started acting extra shady when she was talking about Kenya. Please do not try to stay relevant on this show by becoming the next SheByShady...
Better you stay in your "Nene BFF" role. Nene will protect you and keep you on the show, TRUST! But please do not become messy.
cynthia said at the hair show that HAIR IS EVERYTHING. they why in every episode last season you hair was a HAM. Thank goodness you found a new hairstylist cause u was looking a mess
My comment has nothing to do with your part on the show except that I like you a lot. I question your involvement with Crazy Kenya Moore, but you seem to have a soft heart. I REALLY WANT TO KNOW THE OUTLETS WHERE I CAN BUY YOUR WINE. I called every liquor dealer locally and they didn't have it. Then I googled it and saw it being only distributed in a few stores in GEORGIA. I don't live there; so where can I find it in Texas? I loved everything I saw regarding it on tv, which peaked my interest.....then to find out it was a sparking Rose!!! I knew I had to have it and keep it in my stock. Just can't get it. Help!!!!
I remember the Lunch where everyone fought with Kim, and I particularly remember Kenya- talking about her hollywood career, and remeber Nenes rolling of eyes at the irritation of Kenya trying to claim she had a hollywood career like nene, instantly nene made a sacarstic joke about someone becoming a lawyer like phaedra, having a record like kandi, an agency like cynthia...or words to taht effect and everyone laughed. This joke was born out of nene being heavily irritated at Kenya's comment. I know from nenes previous behaviour that had it been her Kenya copied so obviously a- la- stallion video. Nene would have been very angry and Cynthia and Peter would have thought it was wrong. Please housewives keep your credibility don't side with people simple because you want people number in your gang. The fans can se through that. Stay true to yourselves, we would rather watch you fight for something you truly believe in no matter how irrational rather than see you ganging up against yourselves just top show each other up. You will only show YOURSELF up when you do that. Read the fans comments- it easy to see that in this episode Cynthia, Nene and Peter have SHOWED THEMSELVES UP not Phaedra.
what a disapointment! i come to realize that Kim and Sheree were right. you have no mind of your own, you co sign whatever Nene says. why would you be on Kenya's team after all she's done to you? I understand forgiveness and being the bigger person, but to be team Kenya is disturbing. I understand Phaedra have said some things about you but if I have to chose between 2 ennemies, i'd chose the less harmful one. Get a mind of you own.
Cynthia, please stop celebrity pimping off of Nene and everyone else's drama on the show. The 'classy' act is getting old and boring. Your just as thirsy for fame as everyone else on the show but want to remain under the radar while Nene's going ham and cheese has promoted the whole show. Stop celebrity pimping! I hope RHOA wakes up and replace you and your boring opportunist husband. The most excitement you have ever brought to the show was your weird museum wedding and you have been irrelevant since then.
I am glad to see your Bailey Agency is doing well, and I wish you continued success, it is always a wonderful thing to see a person reinvent themselves and put their mind to work. You have shown your daughter and other women not to give up and go for your dreams. Kudos to you.
I really enjoyed seeing the success of the Bailey Agency. You took what you know to fill a niche in the Atlanta area. I hope your agency becomes the go to place for advertising agencies and clothing designers looking for models. Congratulations on following through on your dream. I wish you continued success.
Im sorry but shes soooooo boring! I could not even finish her blog! Once porsha gets bounced she needs to be replaced next.
Cynthia you need to get your lips off of Nene's butt. If Nene says the sky is falling you will co sign it . You need to get your own mind. Stop being Nene's lap dog. Peter is just plain disgusting. He is ugly on the inside and outside. He is riding you and Nene for his 5 min of fame. He needs to stay off of twitter talking about Lisa Vanderpump she can buy and sell both of you. Peter is getto .
Cynthia you are being very two faced. Remember Kenya already burned you! keep Suckin up her behind just cuz you dont care for Phaedra. Heffa Remember Africa!!
I am so disappointted in you being caddy and messy with Kenya at the hair show. You always preach about being 'classy' but your behavior was 'classless'. Just a minute ago Kenya was belittling and arguing with you. Don't point the finger at others for being two-faced when you do the same.
Cynthia, what in the world happened to you?? Nene again?? On Nene's side again?? Pertaining to Phaedra... because every time Nene doesn't like it, Cynthia doesn't either, girl, get your own back bone...
After watching you roll your eyes, talk behind her back, AND her kid, honey don't forget you were a replacement. I hope someone replaces you and Kenya.
I also have to say Porsha is soooooooo boring, IMO she along with you and Nene need to go.
u r so right. the only reason cynthia is team kenya is cause nene is team kenya. and btw cynthia tell your husband to have a seat. why did he feel the need to go off on lisa vanderpump and SUR. calling it ghetto. what he cant even keep a restaurant open. lisa can buy and sell peter 10 times over. lisa is your housewife peer and he was outta pocket. have several seats peter
You are a two-faced woman. You play the role of being high class but you stooped to a level with Kenya that showed you will do anything to have a friend. Kenya is a joke and is friend to nobody but Kenya. Talking behind Phaedra's back to Kenya is no different from what she did with the phone call incident. But at least she did apologize to you. You hang out with this woman and this is what you do? Friends like you who needs enemies. What is wrong with you women on this show.
Cynthia, I was impressed by how you are exhibiting more independent thought this year. Your Bailey agency "seems" to be thriving. Now I heard you say you are getting into pageants? Sounds like some Kenya influence to me. I hope you don't make the mistake of letting her get her foot into your business. Her business isn't doing so well, which is why she bootkegged Phaedra's idea of the exercise video. You "seemed" to not have a problem with that, likening it to you and Nene both having wines. It is not the same thing, Phaedra was vetting Kenya to produce her video and when the deal went sour she decided to do one of her own. I think you are o lad that Kenya isn't coming after you thst you are going along with whatever she says. Be careful though, if your pagent endeavor doesn't give Kenya what she wants, she'll be opening her own pageant school.
Cynthia I love your new personality. You play the "B" game WELL!!! All those years of modeling didn't go in vain. Keep it up!!
Am I missing something here? The strip club was, ahem, interesting. If I were to believe this is the strip club the men go to. Please, they took their wives to the raunchiest and dare I say older stripper spot that they could find. No doubt, they did it for shock value so their wives would not be offended. The ploy of how much better their bodies look compared to the struggling women up on the bar must have worked. That said, be very offended. When did strippers help improve a marriage? This is absurd to me. Lap dances and you are not offended? The casualness of the men saying they go to strip clubs and no one is offended? The degradation these women endure and Phadra and Cynthia think its funny? I just thought Peter and Apollo and Phadra and Cynthia should be embarrassed and and ashamed of themselves. Trying to normalize the men going to stripper clubs regularly missed the mark for me.
Cynthia,I don't think the rest of the girls really know this but you and NeNe isn't nobody friends because when ya 2 gets together both of y'all don't do nothing but talk about them. Stay to yourself if you don't have nothing good to say about them. When you and NeNe together y'all is fake as hell. You don't have much and your husband sure don't have nothing. So you need chill talking about the other girls....
Oh Cynthia ,I cant believe you have sided and befriended Kenya after all the shit she has done to you and I think you are wrong in giving her a chance ,she is going to backstab you as she has dne to most of you Ipray you reflect and consider staying fr awy from her it woul not surprise me if se goes after your man like she is trying with Apolo well good luck !!
Hey Cynthia! I get you; I'm diplomatic myself. Sometimes it's difficult to tell people what you really think because you may not want to open a can of worms or just don't feel like getting worked up yourself. BUT, Kenya needs to be told that she is not a great business woman, but a cut-throat when she steals ideas from friends. Okay, perhaps she was never a friend of Phaedra's and we are were just fooled by her performance. I gave her a chance when she came to your agency, but when I saw how she disrepested your authority, crossed Porsha at her event, gave you a book on the island as a "gift," and now backstabbed Phaedra and her hubby's idea...I'm threw with her for a while till she gets help. Stick with Nene; she's a true friend to you. I like Kandi too, she's genuine and don't mind telling the truth to one's face. Cynthia, you're a woman of elegance, my favorite on the show.
Please shout out to my girl Kenya are you kidding me. If Nene was around you would not have made that statement. Kenya have not respect for you at all.
Wow Cynthia, I honestly thought highly of you. You’ve been friends with Phaedra for some times now. You quickly move on Kenya’s side… shame shame shame. You’re 2face.
This is my first time really sitting down n watching this show n i can say that if the way Cynthia present herself on the show is who she is in real person then she have a good heart and very natured not forgetting she is beautiful in all her ways from family to her friends. She stands out. I don't know her, never met her but watching the show for the first i just fall in love with her, she is a classy lady. Continue doing ur thing MRS n enjoy ur husband.
Cynthia, I have a question for you. Why did you have a problem with Kendra dropping and rubbing her butt on your husband when it’s perfectly ok for a stripper to show your husband her vulva and rub her butt on him? You are as trashy as the strippers you sat and laughed at. I wonder if Peter would sit at a male strip joint while you had male strippers rubbing his penis on you. It’s ok to exploit women but I seriously doubt your hubby would ALLOW you or, accompany you to a male strip joint. “Peter, I have no problem with you going to strip clubs and looking at women’s vulvas but please don’t let Kendra rub her butt on you.” You belong in the ghetto girlllllll!
Cynthia is so beautiful, she seems very real and very classy.One of the most beautiful women on tv.
You're not a glam aunt. You're not related to them. You're a friend (at the moment, NeNe tends to dump friends easily. You sit on the fence and play both ends against the middle. I don't see you as a true friend to anyone.
Cynthia i think you are one of the most admired women on this show. Very classy!!! You articulate well and get your point across and don't back-pedal, for you...it is what it is, and I simply adore that about you!!! but PLEASE PLEASE don't get caught up with that basket case Kenya...she needs professional help, I mean REALLY someone should seek to get her some meds. The first impression you got from her at the Bailey agency was the correct one.....SOCIOPATH!!!!
Cynthia, I have always been a fan of yours, especially when Kenya came for you...many times. I never believed Kim nor Sheree when they said you have no backbone. Now I see on an upcoming episode that you( and Peter) " seem " to be siding with Kenya over the workout video. I'm sure you are being diplomatic, in part because you are uncomfortable when Kenya has you as a target, but you need to "get along" on the show. But remember, you said you forgave her, but please don't forget. I know you miss Nene and need someone powerful in your corner, however Kenya is not the one. A lot of fans like you because you have class, more class than Kenya has in her little finger. However conspiring with Kenya, at the expense of your friend Phaedra, could turn the fans against you, I know you'd lose me. I am a 66 year okd woman and I know a snake when I see it, it can rear its' ugly head before you have a chance to protect yourself...Kenya is a snake.
Now that Kim is off the show you are my favorite. However, I just would like to see you stop being a patsy for Nene. Also, stop talking about people. Can't any of you just say "if you have a problem with so and so you should talk to her"? I know as friends we listen but we should stay as mutal as possible. You have way to much class to sink to the drama queen's Nene and Kenya.
Cynthia, I thought you were smarter that that, why didn't you shut Kenya down, and tell her to take up her issues with Phadra, is was no one's business but those two. Don't fall for that mental case Kenya drama, didn't you have enough from the beginning, you need to procede with caution.
....Would love to hear from Cynthia how the casting call for the video was really arranged.
Cynthia I kept waiting for an updated post but nothing forthcoming yet. I absolutely adore you. But please do not believe Kenya. I was so disappointed that you took Kenya's side in the video issue. You have personally dealt with Kenya in a negative fashion. You saw the facade she portrayed with Walter. Do you think she all of a sudden swallowed an angel pill? Think about it.
@jde418 it wasn't a matter of taking sides, she wasn't paid her casting call fee to use her agency.
I am loving you and your husband Peter this season. You both seem so very happy! I cannot wait to see more of you two!!
I didn't like you last season because you were too much up Nene's ass but this season i love you, you are funny, you stand up to people and everything seems fine with peter...
Cynthia, please. Once, just once, why not get both sides of a story before forming an opinion? Is it really that hard?
CLASSY CYNTHIA ~ Please don't loose your head by trusting a word that comes out of Kenya's mouth...!!!
Cynthia, You have class and style. Please don't be so happy that Kenya is "acting" nice that you turn your back on your friends. Judging by next week's episode, she has really stabbed Phaedra and Apollo in the back.
