Cynthia Should Retire

Kenya thinks Cynthia's past her prime when it comes to modeling.

If You Don't Know, You Better Ask Somebody!

I am excited for you all to get to know me. This is a new chapter in my life, and it is definitely a page-turner!

My family, friends, and true fans who know me and my heart know that I love beautiful, confident women and have always encouraged them to live their dreams. Historically speaking, my actions speak louder than any words.

With that said, most of the women were stunning and we couldn't pick just one. However, there were only a few that were inappropriately dressed to whom I offered sound advice and the truth.  It's simple -- you must look the part. It is completely offensive to see pubic hair at an audition (or as I said, "coochie crack and ass crack" at an audition) for a wholesome family magazine. I would be remiss not to point that out. Most took it as constructive and even waited to take photos with me after the casting and have kept in touch via Twitter. All I have and will ever try to do is HELP not HURT. So again, congratulations to all the women who showed courage just by showing up. Bravo!

"Why does Kenya have security when no one knows who she is?" First of all, I wouldn't need personal security if Cynthia didn't recruit randoms via Craig's List or Twitter. Secondly, it's obvious Cynthia does not read, watch television, and has been under a rock when I exploded on the scene years ago. I made history being crowned the second black woman to win Miss USA and I was fifth place in The Miss Universe pageant. Let me refresh hers or anyone else’s sluggish memory…

If you don't know, you better ask somebody. I'm also that girl whose been on the covers of and modeled for over 30 magazines from Essence to Real Health to Maxim magazine. In fact, the very audition she held for the Jet Magazine Beauty of the Week, I was chosen as a Jet Beauty. I also have a Jet Magazine cover. Do you have a Jet Magazine cover, Cynthia? NO, you don't.  Additionally, I'm that girl who has had multiple endorsements including my very own Pantene hair commercial, print ads, cosmetic campaigns, as well as numerous fashion layouts. Yep me.  However, models usually retire around 30-years-old. Even though Cynthia is a beautiful woman, at 45, maybe Cynthia should retire her dusty old wigs and worn out makeup brushes that are just as worn out as her welcome mat from the modeling industry. 

Ms. Bailey also takes a shot at me by saying she "wouldn't be caught dead doing some of the magazines I've done."  Well guess what, Cynthia, if you were on the cover of any of the men's magazines I've appeared on the cover of, we’d all die, because we would be bored into a slow and painful death just by looking at you. In fact, I'm bored now just by thinking about it.

Now as a reminder to Miss Bailey, since my successful modeling career and crowning, I moved on to enjoy other accomplishments in my career, such as becoming a popular actor, producer, director, writer, author, and businesswoman. Maybe Cynthia should move on too. #Twirls Away

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)!
