The Kenya, Walter, and Kandi Connection

Kandi explains how she knows Todd and why Kenya has nothing to worry about.

There are only two things I feel the need to address this week based off of what most people tweeted me about.

First is Kenya and Walter. I thought the whole thing with Walter admitting he asked me out was a little awkward. Especially now that he and Todd are cool. I mentioned to Todd that Walter had asked me out before, but I'm sure it’s different for him to hear Walter actually say he was attracted to me. It was weird for me to hear Walter say it because, truth be told, he never asked me out himself. It was always our mutual friend asking me out for him. So I never heard Walter say out of his own mouth that he wanted to take me out. Back story is that one of Walter's best friends and one of my best friends are married to each other. They are always having something at their house, so I have ran into Walter many times over the years. In my mind, him asking me out wasn't anything to talk about, because we never actually went out. It definitely isn't anything for Kenya to worry about. Moving right along…

Second let me address NeNe. I'm not sure why you're bothered by me questioning your motives. You know good and well that you and I have never had the best relationship. You have said crazy things about me on many different occasions. You're not supportive of me or anything I do. If so, you never let me know it. Why would I feel you genuinely want to invite me to your party? And please understand that I wasn't the only one shocked when it was said that you want to uplift other women's success. I was just the only one who said it out loud. How about we just respect the fact that I will never be fake with you? You have your lane and I have mine, which I have been managing successfully for 19 YEARS now. I'm very happy for your accomplishments. I say all the time that I love what you're doing, because I have no problem giving another woman her props. Never have. As a matter of fact I'm always promoting my other female friends, helping their businesses, helping them get jobs, using my platform to help boost theirs, etc. I have never heard of you doing that up until now. Maybe I missed it the times that you have, but I can only go off of what I've seen or heard you do in public. So I'm sorry if I've over looked it. Just know that regardless of if we get along or not, I am always happy for your every accomplishment. I personally think you have changed for the better, and lately you seem to be in a great place and it shows in your personality. Overall, I think we've been getting along as of late and I would hate to start falling out again and start having Twitter beefs... That is sooo something the old NeNe would do, not the sophisticated, accomplished woman you are now. But then again...

Much Love,
Kandi

Cynthia: "I Pray We Can Make Peace"

Cynthia Bailey dishes on the make up with NeNe Leakes as well as her runway walk at Fashion Week. 

Thanks for tuning in to another episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Let's jump right on in.


YOU HAVE TO GIVE RESPECT TO GET RESPECT
Once I had the opportunity to speak at the dinner table, my only issue was respect, or me feeling the lack thereof. I did not feel like the respect that I had for NeNe and her husband was being reciprocated. She has called my husband out of his name too many times to count, and still continues to do so. Until this day, I have never disrespected her husband. I believe in boundaries, and even in anger certain lines should never be crossed. There is an unspoken trust and confidentiality between friends regardless of the state of the relationship. If I felt like I could have called NeNe, and had my feelings and concerns met with an open mind and an open heart, I would have. However, we stopped communicating months before we filmed the reunion; therefore a one-on-one sit down wasn't an option. Honesty between friends should always be appreciated, especially when it's coming from a loving place. Friends applaud each other's triumphs, and check each other when they are wrong. As grown, successful, and professional women, I pray we can make peace through forgiveness of each other's faults, and can arrive at a true place of support and respect for each other. I am moving forward in grace.

 

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK
The only thing I love more than New York is New York Fashion Week! I was so excited to walk alongside two of my models from The Bailey Agency School of Fashion, Nisaa Pouncey and Chelsea Lee, in my longtime friend Kithe Brewster's Fashion show. The girls exceeded my expectations and gave me confirmation that my little school that I opened just four years ago was indeed making dreams come true! I was also asked by one of my favorite designers, Betsey Johnson, to walk in her show as well! As a woman who embraces her age, I was proud to represent the older and curvier woman during Fashion Week. Although it has always been the industry standard to use mostly younger, thinner models, I applaud designers like Betsey Johnson and Kithe Brewster for showing some "real women" on the runway as well. I hope that this is a trend, and in the future others designers follow suit. I was so excited to have Peter, Kenya, Kandi, Todd, and Noelle's dad, Leon, in New York to support me (and my big butt)!
