Cynthia's Bossing Up

Derek J. weighs in on the Cynthia/Porsha drama.

Hey guys and dolls. I take it that you enjoyed the rollercoaster ride that was last night’s episode of RHOA. The girls are throwing daggers, shade, and anything else that they can pick up with those perfectly manicured hands.

First, let’s talk about Porsha’s mandate from her husband to put Cynthia in her place. That didn’t go well. Why? Because, as we’re seeing week by week, Cynthia is bossing up and the meek and mild girl you used to know is no more. (She’s actually been wearing menswear this season, and the lady looks good!) How hilarious was it that Cynthia fired Porsha from her pageant before she could quit? Poor Porsha! I will shout out the fabulous gowns that she tried on though. She takes pride in being her husband’s Barbie doll, and I can’t hate on it!

So after tears of embarrassment came some real tears of sorrow. Well, not for me, but maybe some of you as Kenya took us on a candid trip to her doctor’s office. Luckily everything checked out OK, but those violins in the background were slightly working me over. Did this make you all think of Kim and the wig/cancer scandal? I’ll leave that alone.

 



Staying out of trouble this week were everybody’s favorite around the way girls, Phaedra and Kandi, which was pretty good. Everybody can’t be at war at the same time. Speaking of home girl, NeNe is still enjoying the good life in L.A. and she ain’t got no worries.I’m keeping this week kind of short, since I’ve been stuck in the NY snowstorm and now I’ve get to get back to work.

See you all next week. I’ll dish on more dirt, and I know you’ll love it!

Kenya: "I Will Always Be a Queen"

Kenya Moore dishes on the truce with Phaedra Parks and the non apology from Porsha Williams.

CLOSURE
The reunion represents closure on all levels. I believe most women need closure. Reunions are tough because you live through filming, then through seeing it on TV, and then again during the reunion. You can feel you have moved on from something difficult and then you have to discuss it and rehash it. I felt good about this reunion, because I have grown so much. I am stronger now and nothing or anyone can destroy me.

Speaking of opening old wounds, I was respectful toward Phaedra during the conversation, but it’s clear that after our truce, she still wants to call me a whore and liken me to other “whores in the bible.” God doesn’t like ugly. Maybe sitting alone on the sofa now is confirmation.

THE NON APOLOGY
There was a part of me that was hopeful about getting an apology for being physically attacked at the last reunion, since that would mean the past was behind us. You have to own what you do wrong in life. Children are taught that you don’t hit anyone first or at all. Whether provoked or not, isolated incident or not, physically attacking someone is legally and morally incomprehensible. As such, doing the right thing should be easy. But this is the same person whose grandfather was a greatly respected civil rights activist who fought for non-violence, yet thinks the Underground Railroad was an actual train that took people to freedom.

In typical fashion, Phaedra attacks my character in a preplanned soliloquy. But in her own words, her “THOT” friend thinks that spreading your legs wide open and accepting gifts from married men is admirable. Yet, it’s basically teaching young girls that having a square card reader between your butt cheeks is how one becomes “blessed” and “successful.” That’s why I will always be a Queen, literally and figuratively, because when I am wrong, I can apologize, forgive, and move forward. I can love, though I have not always been loved, and I can be talented and successful on my own merit without needing men to finance my lifestyle, and I can be the bigger person when others try to bring me down.

SINGLE VS MARRIED
Some viewers ask why there are single women on a show about Housewives. It’s simple -- every Real Housewife franchise has single women, from Beverly Hills to OC to NY to Atlanta. With that said, there are only two Housewives on RHOA that are currently not married, Claudia and myself. In fact, approximately 43 percent of all Black women have never been married. My journey is not unlike the many Black single women who watch our show. Nearly half of Black women want to be married and find true love but are not willing to settle or can’t find the right man. NeNe and her puppet would like everyone to think it’s better to be in a horrible marriage rather than be single.

Having said that, I have never received so much love from the viewers as when I was featured on The Millionaire Matchmaker. It made me realize is that I am no different from all the single women around the world looking for real love. My journey is their journey, and ultimately they want me to fall in love with them rooting me on. It happened for Kandi, Kim, Bethenny, Tamra, etc. and it will happen for me too with all of you by my side. Therefore, having single women as Housewives is good for the show. Everyone deserves a chance to be happy. And we can inspire and give hope to those looking for love.

Rumor has it that someone said single women should be fired from RHOA. As such, we wouldn’t have witnessed the beautiful rekindling of NeNe and Gregg's love or her wedding special. Therefore, those people clearly didn't create the successful model for this show. If it's a play to get me fired... Try again. #CatchThatShade
