Apologizing to Porsha

Kandi wishes she hadn't made any comments about Porsha's marriage.

Sometimes I look back at an episode and disagree with my own self about things I may have said. This episode is one of them. I felt bad as I looked back at how we were questioning Porsha about her marriage. So let me say, Porsha, I apologize. My mom always says you’re not supposed to speak about other people’s marriage unless they ask you to. Porsha did not ask me for advice, nor should she. I am not married YET, therefore I can’t say what Porsha should or should not do. I respect the fact she stood her ground.


My situation is totally different than Porsha’s. I meant what I said about how I can’t relate to her situation, because it’s true that if you have to financially depend on your mate, then a lot of times that gives them more control. BUT that is not always a bad thing. These days divorce is at an all-time high, and I have to wonder if it’s because we as women are more independent and therefore less likely to put up with B.S. and not as willing to work through the hard times like the women from back in the day, who were more dependent on their husbands? Well, although I can’t relate to Porsha, I still wish her happiness and longevity in her marriage, and I hope she keeps doing what works for her. Maybe I need to be taking advice from her, since she is the married one.

Well, the other thing I looked back on and gagged about was when they showed me telling my fart story… I speak first and think later sometimes, LOL! Oh well! That is me. I’m always telling my friends some crazy inappropriate story. I love to laugh with my girls. We were having a good time, so I told it not thinking about the millions of people who would watch it later. Well hopefully y’all got a good laugh. Now on to my Bedroom Kandi party! We were having fun before the drama began. They sure know how to mess up a good time. If you would like to have a Bedroom Kandi party for you and your girls, you can go to www.BKparties.com or www.BedroomKandi.com. We’ll send one of our Bedroom Kandi consultants to you and bring all the fun! 

Much love,
Kandi

Cynthia: I Had a Blast with 'Life Twirls On'

Cynthia Bailey discusses the challenges she faced filming Kenya Moore's pilot.

I have had several small acting roles over the course of my career; however my focus back then had always been modeling. More recently, over the past couple of years I have been cast for different roles, and I have fallen head over heels in love with acting. So when Kenya told me about her pilot and that she was interested in Noelle's dad, Leon, for one of the roles, I immediately let her know that I wanted to audition for it. Up until that point, Kenya knew nothing of my acting ambitions, and seemed a bit reluctant to let me try out. I knew that if she gave me the opportunity to audition, I would only have one chance to impress her. I showed up at the audition on time, in character, totally prepared, dressed to impress, and showed out! I landed the role!

I had a blast watching myself on screen as CeCe in Kenya's pilot Life Twirls On! It was so much fun to play such a colorful character with a funny, quirky, eccentric, outspoken, over-the-top personality. I have to admit that the Jamaican accent was a bit of a challenge, but thanks to Peter's help, I was up for it. Although I am a newbie to acting, I still expected Kenya to challenge me and take me outside of my box. I jumped out with both feet and went for it! One of the things that Kenya and I share in common is that we are both perfectionists. I knew that if I didn't take my audition seriously, she would not have cast me for the role. I also knew that if I got the role and did not deliver, she would have fired me (friends or no friends). Failure was not an option! I was grateful for the opportunity and did not want to disappoint Kenya, and more importantly, myself.

I thought Life Twirls On was hilarious, and Kenya did a great job writing, acting, casting, directing, and producing it. I know how hard she worked on the pilot, and I was proud to be a part of it.
