Cynthia Bailey

Cynthia explains why she wanted to confront Kenya about Walter.

on Mar 25, 20130

Hello everyone! Hope you all enjoyed the episode. Going to try to keep it short again. Let's go!

After seeing how upset Kenya was at Kandi's housewarming party about Walter coming, I decided to meet her for a drink at Bar One. The social circles in Atlanta are very small, and the possibility of Kenya and Walter being in the same room is not only likely, but guaranteed. I felt that Kenya really needed someone to help her see that she was so much bigger than the way she was dealing with Walter. I wanted to give her some tough girl power love, because it was really becoming painful to see her continuously become so undone over this man. I did not agree with how she was handling the issue, but I could relate to the situation and her pain.

Cynthia,

With grace and dignity you have emerged the favorite on RHOA.  And it is great to see you on the hottest morning show, Good Morning America!  Wishing you all the success.

Cynthia, you should be able to recognize "unbalanced" when you see it.  Her comments are

ridiculous, and she always has some violent comment to make. She didn't think Walter was so

bad when she all but BEGGED him to marry her! Stay away from this broad; she has already threatened a pregnant woman which proves that she is out of control!!

Cynthia I really like you so I just want to say I think Phaedra is right about Kenya.  Kenya is bi-polar and you should not get to close to her, I think she nuts and dangerous.  Be careful.

Cynthia- I must say you got a good one with Peter.  He is a classy gentleman.  I was so impressed how he stood up for Porsche when Kendra kicked her out of the costume party. I would have done the exact same thing.  It was so refreshing to see how naturally that came to him .  It was almost as if there was no choice he just did the right thing.  He is a class act and a truly a good person.  I also was so taken by the sweet 2nd wedding  he planned for you and him with the lanterns at the end, I got the goose bumps.  He really demonstrated how much he loves you and it was touching.   Cynthia it was so exciting watching your fashion show with all the young beautiful  girls and well trained beauty talent pageant contestants. You did a wonderful job training training them.

Such a lovely blog, though I'm really not sure why you're friends with Kenya in the first place.  Anyone who rubbed their butt on my husband's crotch the way Kenya did to Peter the first night in Anguilla would have gotten my Louboutin firmly entrenched in her stallion booty.  She'd still be trying to remove the 6" heel.

Guess you're just too nice to be real.  Now smile.  And vogue.  And smile.  Now vogue.  Perfect.

Cynthia, You're classy and gorgeous. Please tame that beast Peter down. He looked like a reject from The Mack with that fur on and always stuntin like he runnin sh$&. If I wanted to see The Real Husbands I'd watch Kevin Harts show. Before we know it we'll see him with his hand on his hip in the opening with the tag line, "When women fight, I jump all in"!

Please tell Peter..THANK YOU.This is the first time in the history of the housewives franchise that they all stood up and together for what is right. Thanks Peter.

Portia came to the party to start a problem.  Kandi did not want to come as Tina Turner but she was a team player and came as Tina. Portia is definitely more BAPS than Miss Dandridge.  She coud have come as the more refined version of the BAPS character.  Portia is a TROUBLE MAKER.

Cynthia, I applaud you, NeNe, and Kandi for standing up for what is right! I'm glad you all told Kenya about herself! She was truly wrong and you stood up for what is right! Kenya was clearly out to make a fool of Porsha and she got out witted by someone she called dumb! Kenya wanted to represent iconic women from days of old tell me how did Halle Berry fit in? She had Grace Jones, Tina Turner, Diana Ross, and Eartha Kitt! Halle Berry is not from that era and to make matters worst she said BAPPS! Thanks to you all for standing up!!!!!!!

What the hell is wrong with peter this season, he is more messy than the women, what man get's a kick out female drama, you would think that since Bar One is doing well, that would keep him occupied , he is acting very Queenly, go hang out with Miss Lawrence and Derek J and they can show him how it's suppose to be done, and take Kordell, Walter and that Appollo with ya!

Cynthia, why is it that you are constantly telling kenya how wrong she is. It is only acceptable when you address the other woman as well. For example why was Porscha never spoken to when she did not invite kenya to her party but invited Walter. Dear God Porscha was soooo nasty and evil when kenya had found out while you guys were all out eating in LA. It makes me sick that you allow Porscha to pull all her nasty behavior without addressing it...it only makes you also look bad---more is expected from you. Now next season get it together!

Ihope you stood up for Porsha after Kenya's weird old "Hollywood" party.  Seems like she did that just to kind of stick it to Porsha for not inviting Kenya to Cordell's party.  She's solid cray-cray in my book and you need to watch your back with Kenya. Seriously.  Is she off her meds again?

Peter is a standup guy for suggesting they all leave the party.  He was a true friend and a great person.  Right is right and wrong is wrong. Shame on Kenya

Cynthia, you are the next hypocrit!  You two face everyone and you have a tendency to give everyone advice when it is not welcomed.  One thing is you are a pretty woman, but you get this hyper-energy to give advice.  Stick your spoon in your own bowl of soup and things will be fine.  Kenya has more money, more class and for you to drag the whole crowd out of there was really irrelevant.  What are you going to do now?  Abandon Porscha?  What a creep you are.  You love to think that you are classy, but you are not... you need to carry yourself in a way that represents you morally.  You are nothing but a trouble maker along with your purple husband.  (he and his macho guy friends was calling him that in one of the episodes)    You do need to have respect and focus on yourself!

You were so correct telling Kenya to move on and calm down, since Walter is someone she use to know.  It was a shame and disgrace the way she ran behind him all season, and her catty remarks about you and your agency.  I was done with from that point on.  She just got worse, Please remind and educate her that, "Beauty fades, but class last forever."  You did a great job on GMA's Look-A-Likes with the others.

Cynthia you lost a lot of credibility, when you decided to take up for Kenya!! Sorry but that is how I see it.. Phaedra was right when she said Kenya acts like she is bi polar!! Um hello Cynthia, we have all watched the show!! And for you to say otherwise is insulting!!

I will be honest, this is the first time in a while this season I'm saying good for you Cynthia! Good for you for sticking up for Porsha at Kenya's party. Good for you, Peter, and the rest of the ladies who supported Porsha over the very cruel, egocentric Kenya.

] what a hypocrite. You were all team Kenya when you found out about the Stallion DVD and now it is "Team Donkey Booty" AND "Team Stallion".  You act impartial now but you acted all Team Kenya in the past episodes by saying things like "I would rather have a stallion booty" blah blah blah.

 

Anyway, I do not know why you bother trying to make Kenya see sense. That girl is a little cray cray me thinks. To show up to a party dressed as Phaedra was purely ridiculous high school rubbish. She embarrassed herself more than she did Phaedra. I am no Phaedra fan either but at least the woman has some class.

 

I used to like you but you are coming off like a two faced hypocrite this season. You have come off as quite bitchy in the one on one interviews that air in the episodes.

 

I do agree though that Peter has been a standout this season and has shown himself to be a gentleman and defend people's honour when he sees it is right. And Greg too. I am so glad he and Nene are working it out.

Cynthia... I just like you.  You are so pretty and so funny in your commentary!   Great move to sell hair... someone is advising right.  Use the reality show as a platform to build your business.

Thank you for speaking up and standing up for what is right concerning Kenya being mean spirited toward Porsha.  As a black woman I needed to see us united against inappropriate behavior among us and this will help that person realize you are welcome as long as you do what is right and when you do not there are consequences.  Even the bible teaches you should first go talk with her, then bring counsel to her and if she continues then alienate her.

This is the first time this whole season that someone actually said something that people in "real life" would say to a friend. The reason that you had to constantly repeat yourself is because you had to make sure that Krazy Kenya would really listen to you.

Nice job, Cynthia.  Though, I imagine the advice you offered Kenya went in one ear and out the other, I applaud your effort. I was really beginning to dislike you this season but you're redeeming yourself in my eyes.

Hello Cynthia, I love watching you on the show. You and NeNe are my favorites. You always maintain your dignity.  Ok, I don't understand why so much energy  has to be invested in Kenya's fake heart break over Walter if this was supposedly a fake relationship. I guess in Kenya's mind it was real..  Kenya isn't devastated over Walter, she is just trying to ensure camera time and a spot on next season. Kenya knows how to manipulate any situation to her advantage. She wasn't too concerned when she was "dropping it like it was hot" in Anguilla with any man that she could find. Honestly, I really don't mind Kenya being around... someone needed to knock Phaedra down a peg or two..... the original cast members needed someone else new to fight with now that Kim is gone.. aka Kenya's head is served on a golden platter... By the way, Kenya did her thing on her work out video (2 thumbs up!)

 Cynthia is a hypocrit.  NeNe would have kicked Porsha out in a heartbeat. And Cynthia would have supported NeNe for kicking her out.

And Peter should keep his mouth shut when the women are arguing.  Cynthia needs to show some "TOUGH LOVE" to Peter.  Peter is acting like a jealous person.

 See, I said the same thing. Kendra was up to no good with her telling Porsha to represent Halle Berry in B.A.P.S. if she was really trying to portray iconic black women in film there are many many black women who have contributed to this title.

 @emmalyn kordell invited walter and porsha and kenya are not friends so i am sure she (p) felt no obligation to invite her. for the season finale they all had to attend.. that was more of a bravo event i think...

 @emmalyn

 She didn't invite Kenya to her party because she didn't want to....I'll be damned if someone dictates my guest list. The last time Porsha invited Kenya to an event she acted like a fool.

 @Konnah

 Porscha should not have come to Kenya's party if she couldn't adhere to the proper attire. She showed up in the costume Kenya asked her not to wear when she was invited earlier in the show. Had she shown up to the party as Baps Porscha still would have been beautiful as she always is. But now she just looks like a trouble maker. Remember, she didn't invite Kenya to Kordell's party even though she invited everyone else. I don't think the group shold have come to her rescue this time because it looked like Porscha would have stared a major problem at Kenya's event regardless to wether or not Kenya didn't ask her to leave. Porscha came to that party to show out and upset Kenya.

Seriously.....I'm talking about his antics in taking pleasure in walter and Kenya's situation, what 50yr old man ask "Did You Hit That" and appollo standing right behind him grinning from ear to ear, Oh and let's not forget the house warming party "I'm Just gonna sit back and enjoy the show" The men have been real messy this season, leave the drama for the ladies, they don't need any help from the men, they do just fine with out them

That is so true, Walter and Kordell are friends so why should Portia be blamed for inviting Walter.  Kenya would have only felt like she was being stalked by Walter anyways, so its best she was NOT invited!  (IJS)

 @Lorrij  @Konnah I disagree. If you are asked to come to a party to be humiliated then I would have change the costume as well. I truly believe being that this was the finale, I don't think Porsha could have declined. Even after she was asked to leave Kenya's party, I still don't think she could have left. They are all contractually obligated to certain things and attendance is one of them. With that said, if she did not feel comfortable then why not change? Kenya never told them anything about a program being centered around them. As we saw, they were only introduced. Was that so major that she ruined the event by coming as someone else? Nene was the only one with a role. Kenya has to learn how to be in control without being controlling. Cynthia, said it best when she told Kenya this is not the academy awards and everyone was there to have fun. It's not that deep. All of this drama just validated the thoughts of many to say she had a vendetta against Porsha. She should not have sent two body guards over to throw out a young woman like she was a piece of trash. Very ugly and unnecessary.  Kenya needs to lighten up!! I am glad they all stuck together and Nene brought it home with her final comments. She is always true and authentic. Kenya need to take notes.
