LET’S CUT TO THE CHASE

THE TRIP

I am an uninhibited, off-the-cuff, wild card who likes to enjoy life. I can fall on my face at times, but I get right back up, dust myself off, laugh, and keep it moving. I never take things or myself too seriously in my personal life.

THE INVITATION?

I was elated that Kandi wanted me to go on vacation with the girls, because I thought it would be a lot of fun. And it was! Not only did we get to see an incredible island, eat amazing food, and enjoy all the activities the island had to offer, we were bonding, having a great time, and getting to know each other.

Even after Cynthia refused to invite me, she even had to admit that I was very pleasant and nice to her and willing to move on and start fresh after our first misunderstanding. I try not to dwell in the past or hold grudges. We both took jabs at each other in self-defense. We have yet to actually discuss our fallout, so I have to be open and willing to move on and hope one day Cynthia can too.  THE FLIRT

The fact is, we were having a great time and I’m sure you all could see there were drinks flowing, good music, good conversation, and we let our hair down. We were all horsing around and it was HARMLESS. When I watched the show playback I cringed a little. I was acting a fool!  What was in that rum punch? LOL! Does it appear that I flirt with Apollo by pushing him in a pool? I was playing around and being silly -- not flirting with Apollo. I did not think he was flirting either by pushing me back.  Now, as to the “tall drink of water,” guilty. Perhaps it was passive aggressive behavior. I’m not saying it was proper, but it is a possibility I was acting out.

LET’S CUT TO THE CHASE

With that said, I don’t think that having fun or flirting warrants being ostracized or having to wear a scarlet letter on my chest. We were all having the best time. NeNe even flirts some, but no one took that seriously and no one should take my flirting seriously either.  It appears through Phaedra’s interviews that she had strong opinions about it and fired warning shots in my direction. However, by the end of the trip, you will see that Phaedra and I remained close friends and she saw it for what it was, HARMLESS. We kept it moving. No harm, no foul. She knows I didn’t and don’t want Apollo. I don’t want any man that is married. When I go to sleep at night, I get in my own bed and there isn’t anyone’s husband in it.

I strongly support and believe in the institution and sanctity of marriage. And despite the odds, I hope all of the happy couples endure the challenges of staying together under the microscopic, critical eye of a reality TV show.There are only 10 days left to Christmas. I hope that everyone takes the time to enjoy their family, laugh out loud, and enjoy this beautiful life we have… it’s worth living to the fullest.

Next week’s show is going to go down in history. Many things come to a head. It is the most exciting episode to come!

P.S. There will be a special surprise that I have been working on and will release to my Twitter followers on Monday. I hope you enjoy it.

Claudia: I Could Relate to Cynthia's Insecurities

Claudia Jordan shares her thoughts on Cynthia's runway walk and the ladies' sit down.

Bravotv.com: What were your thoughts about the ladies’ big sit down to hash out their issues?
Claudia Jordan: I was really looking forward to a real resolve, and it seemed like that might happen when we saw (what I thought was) real emotion from both of the ladies. But sadly, once we heard the comments in the confessionals, we saw that only one of the ladies was truly being honest. I for sure thought when I saw NeNe leak some salty liquid from her tear ducts that she was in fact meaning what she was saying, but to so easily flip the script and throw that shade in her interview, well it was disappointing to say the least. One thing I love about Cynthia is that no matter what, she is always down to at least give someone a second chance. Some people may choose to call that weak, but I don't. I think it's easier to write someone off than it is to be open to them again once they have hurt you. Personally to me that takes real strength. I tend to hold a grudge once someone shows me their true colors, and I am great at closing the door and never looking back. So to me it was impressive that Cynthia was even open to once again trying to patch things up with NeNe. At the end of the day both ladies made a choice -- Cynthia made a choice to at least try one more time, and NeNe chose to act like she wanted to be friends again only to turn around and take it all back in her confessional. I wish I could say I am surprised, but sadly I'm not. I thought that was quite mean. Why not say that you were not interested in being friends when Cynthia was in your face? Why bother with the theatrics of crying only to later on basically say you didn't really mean it? Shady, shady, shady! If you're really about that life, say it to her face NeNe! Don't turn up in the confessionals and boo hoo in person! Where they do that at?


Bravotv.com: As a model yourself, did you sympathize with Cynthia’s insecurities about walking in a NY Fashion Week show? How was Cynthia’s walk?
CJ: I absolutely could relate to Cynthia's insecurities walking the runway with teenagers and 20-something year olds! I haven't walked a catwalk in so long, but when I did, there was such a rush that comes from when you KNOW you just did your thing and the crowd shows you love. That instant gratification is everything!

 

But I must say Cynthia did a great job, and if she was insecure, it certainly didn't show while she was on that catwalk! I thought she looked beautiful, and I was happy for her.

Bravotv.com: What inspired you and Kenya to take a cooking class?
CJ: Well I love to cook, but I don't make a TON of different things, so I'm always down to learn to make more. Although my reaction to the dessert wasn't as strong as Kenya's -- and her moans -- I thoroughly enjoyed it! It was sooo good! It was a fun experience, and Kenya never ceases to amaze me with her wild and crazy self!
