Did Kenya Steal Phaedra's Idea?
Cynthia shares her thoughts on the booty video brawl.
Hello everyone! I was working and traveling, so I did not get the opportunity to post my blog for the last couple of weeks. So let's go back for a minute, because I would like to address a few things.
Business is business, and it is never personal. Unfortunately, doing business with friends rarely ends well and usually ends up kicking you in the butt, be it donkey or stallion! I wish Phaedra much success with her donkey booty video, however I am not (nor have I ever been) involved in any way. The possibility of The Bailey Agency doing the casting for the video did come up in casual conversation at my PT moscato launch party at Bar One, but there were never any serious discussions or meetings with me to move forward from Kenya or Phaedra. I assumed that the dynamic duo had decided to do the casting themselves or used another company. So when my staff brought it to my attention that Phaedra had sent out a tweet saying that there was a donkey booty casting at The Bailey Agency, I shut it down immediately. I would never assume that I was entitled to a free service of any kind from any of the ladies’ businesses and will always expect the same in return. Casting is one of the many services that we provide at The Bailey Agency and of course we get paid a fee to do it. Once my position was clear in regards to the casting, the rest of the dialogue was between Kenya and Phaedra. Donkey booty or stallion booty, no one in this group is a jack ass when it comes to their business or money! Kenya and Phaedra are both strong, smart women, and I have every confidence that they will work it out! No pun intended.
Runway Red Kids Fashion Show!
I had such a great time casting and rehearsing the children for the Runway Red fashion show. This was a big deal for The Bailey Agency, and I am proud to say that we showed up and showed out! The production was a huge success, and all the kids did an awesome job! I love being involved in anything that involves the little ones, especially when it is for a good cause. Thank you to everyone that was a part of making the event a fashion extravaganza! Special thanks to my staff for all your hard work, I could not do this without you!
Side note: I love me some Ayden, he is absolutely adorable! I was very excited to see him rip the runway, but without his t-o-y-s and s-i-p-p-y-c-u-p, he wasn't having it. The runway could have been made out of gummy bears, but Ayden wasn't walking down it! Had Apollo not come to the rescue, I would have been happy to carry him down the r-u-n-w-a-y myself! We don't call him Prince Ayden for n-o-t-h-i-n-g!Am I Team Stallion or Team Donkey?
Neither! I don't want a donkey booty or a stallion booty. I am very happy with the one that God gave me. As a matter of fact, I would be more interested in a butt video that focused on making my butt a little smaller! I have MORE than enough going on in that department and would hate to see it get any bigger than it already is! However, if I had to choose between the two, I would say stallion. I just think stallion sounds more flattering than donkey. I have been called a stallion before, and it was always meant as a compliment. I think I would actually be offended if I was referred to as a donkey in any way. Sorry, nothing personal against donkeys! There is no reason for me to pick sides, as I will have no financial gain from the success of either. I support both. Good luck to both asses!
Side Note: Just because I would prefer to be called a stallion as opposed to a donkey does not mean I am now best friends with Kenya. No way, Jose! I just like the name better, period. Since Kenya apologized in Anguilla for acting a fool at the JET casting and Phaedra apologized for butt dial, I have been good with them both.
Do I think Kenya stole Phaedra's idea?
Do I think it's right?
It's really none of my business, that's between them. Kenya and Phaedra got themselves in this mess, and they will figure out how to get out of it! I do have my opinion, and it is this: Business is business! The deal went bad, feelings got involved, and they are no longer friends. Now it's strictly business, and the best video will speak for itself. Phaedra A.K.A. Donkey Booty
I like Phaedra, and I have not had an issue with her since the butt dial. We talked, she eventually apologized, and I accepted. Phaedra and Kandi are friends, just like NeNe and I are friends. Phaedra and I are still getting to know each other, but for some reason people seem to think that we have been friends for a long time and are really close. Maybe it’s because I am the only one that comes to all events? OK, we all know that I didn't make it to Ayden's last birthday gala! While I will always support Phaedra, we don't exactly talk every day and vacation together. I really love her sense of humor and over the top ways. She just says and does the silliest things! I love making fun of Phaedra's craziness, because she really owns it! You gotta love it! Besides, how can you now make fun of a booty battle? It's so ridiculous!
Side Note: When I told Phaedra about what happened with Kenya after the JET casting, she didn't seem particularly interested. Although I never asked anyone to pick a side or a team or get The Bailey Agency tattooed on their chest, it felt like to me that Phaedra was just a little too excited to embrace Kenya right after the whole thing went down. Just telling you how it felt. She told me that she thought Kenya was just so much fun! I remember laughing and saying to her, "Yeah, let's see how much fun you will think she is when she comes for you!" Guess y'all are not having fun anymore?
I make every effort to support Phaedra in everything that she does, but it takes more than that to have an actual friendship. How is joking around with Kenya about donkey butts talking about Phaedra behind her back? One of the things I like about Phaedra is that she is funny, and I definitely think she can take a joke. Phaedra and I are still getting to know each other, and until we are truly friends, I don't feel like we owe each other anything.Side note: In my opinion, Kenya has a better body, proportion wise. I did not say a better butt! I was blessed with the opportunity to see Phaedra’s naked butt (draped in fish net) up close and personal for almost a whole day in Anguilla. I will never forget what it looks like, and let me just tell you, that thang is super tight! No cellulite and jiggle free. Now until I see Kenya's butt in the flesh, I have to give the actual butt trophy to Phaedra!
NeNe’s Point of View
NeNe was in LA working on The New Normal for pretty much all of the booty drama. I was lucky enough to get caught up in this nonsense right after we meet at the school about the casting that did not happen. Was it not clear in the episode that I said I’d rather have a stallion booty rather than a donkey booty before NeNe had even voiced her opinion? Oh, since I said it first, maybe NeNe just likes the stallion booty because I said I did? Now imagine that!
