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.

Let's go! This week’s episode:

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?

Yes

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?

Being Two-Faced?

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!

Bronner Brothers Show

In addition to helping judge the hair event, I was also launching my new hair extensions line Hair Couture! It's the hair that I wear all the time and on the show. It is also the hair I had in at the reunion show! Go onto cynthiabailey.com if you are interested!

Most Asked Question:

Was Major and King in the fashion show? Yes they were! Messiah and Deyjah were as well. They did a great job!Be sure to tune in to RHOA on Sunday because this butt thing is about to get really stinky (oops!), I mean sticky! Trust me, YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS THE NEXT EPISODE! (I am not even joking with you guys right now! It’s going to take crazy to a place where you have NEVER seen it go before!) So bottoms up!



Love and appreciate you guys!

Claudia: Porsha's Been Stank All Season

Claudia Jordan fires back at Porsha Williams for coming for her at the reunion.

Bravotv.com: Were you nervous going into your first reunion?
Claudia Jordan: Not at all! I was so looking forward to it. I thought there would be more drama and it would be more difficult for me, but it was a piece of cake. I thought everyone for the most part looked great in their all white outfits, and the set was amazing!

Bravotv.com: Were you surprised Porsha came for you?
CJ: Absolutely not. She's been quite stank all season. The last time I was surprised at her actions was when we met for lunch way back in the very beginning of the season, because up until a week prior, I thought we were cool enough. Not friends, BFFs, or besties, but cordial acquaintances. But when she kept doing little catty things, I saw what it was. Looking back I understand. I was the new girl, and when a new girl comes on the scene, not all the women will embrace new energy and new personalities; some will automatically feel threatened. I for one love meeting new women and making friends. I think there is nothing more powerful than a group of talented, beautiful, and intelligent women. Check out my Instagram and see the crew I roll with on the daily. It's clear that I live by that. I've never been intimidated or jealous of any other women. I embrace my lovely friends, because I respect them and how they handle their business. I love meeting new people and look forward to learning new things from new acquaintances I make. So to be so closed minded about another person right out of the gate and create a "reason" for it after the fact is just dumb. But at this point, dumbness does not shock me nor does ignorance.

I do want to address one of the lies Ms. Williams told about me at the reunion. I never asked around town for the tea. Porsha started making it clear to the world she had an issue with me, even though I had no idea why. I then heard some completely unsolicited gossip from my friends, but I kept it under my hat -- I mean it was juicy, but it was really none of my concern outside of gossip, and I certainly was not seeking it out. And it would have remained there forever had she had not become so nasty to me. At the end of the day, I don't care what and whom that girl allows to enter her bat cave. But just keep it polite and cute towards me. Don't get caught out there loudly running your mouth about me in hallways. Don't be shady at work. Don't make statements to NeNe slandering me and Kenya, talking about our legs being up in the air and criticizing us for not being married, then complain that folks are slandering you. It's quite simple. And if you know in your real life how you get down, it might be in your best interest not to poke fun, egg on, and laugh at another woman being wrongly accused of doing what you do, because you might mess around and taunt someone that will get with you and spill your room-temperature tea. #DropsMic


Bravotv.com: Are you going to continue to pursue stand-up?
CJ: Yes, I am. I actually did a show that Bravo recorded. They showed a brief snippet of it on the reunion, but I really wish they would show it all, because it was funny! I had a great reception from the audience, and a lot of the girls came to my show -- Cynthia, Kenya, Demetria, and my best friend, Auta. Also most of the morning show came and supported me, and they all gave me props! It felt amazing. It was very empowering and exhilarating to be on that stage and see all those people in the audience cracking up and getting my sense of humor. I've already got some calls and requests for bookings just from people hearing that I want do stand up. I will keep you guys posted when I do some more shows!

Please follow me on Instagram and Twitter @ClaudiaJordan for all the updates on my career. I have been getting lots of bookings, hosting concerts for Ginuwine and Tank. Please check my Instagram for upcoming tour dates. Also I have two films coming out this year called The Hills and Love is Not Enough. I am in talks right now for a third movie to start filming in the fall. This past weekend I got the chance to catch up with a dear friend of mine that got me started in radio-Mr Jamie Foxx. His album drops on May 18th and we were there to support him at his album listening party. Just wanted to share some photos from all the fun times I've been having lately! Life is good and I am happy and feeling loved!

xoxo, CJ
