Kenya's "Home-Cooked" Meal

Kenya explains her frozen food farce.

GUESS WHO’S COMING TO DINNER

Another holiday season is amongst us and this is my first Thanksgiving as an official Atlantan.  There’s one problem…I missed the meal with my family because I was having cocktails at NeNe’s house! NeNe and her family were warm and kind and one cannot deny the fact that the girl is hilarious!  It’s good to have a genuine person open up their home to make me feel welcome. That’s what the holidays are all about and I appreciate the hospitality and thank NeNe from the bottom of my heart.

I watched RHOA this week in total amazement. There was Kim and her ongoing moving issues; Kandi ready to move forward into her new mansion; the revisionist historian and her intellectual challenges; and NeNe and Cynthia catching Phaedra in a boldface lie; and lastly me introducing Walter to my family and conversing about the imminent future.

GUESS WHO’S COMING TO DINNER

I’ve only brought one man home to meet my family and this was the second. I was happy to see my family take it fairly easy on him. Trust me… that was them taking it easy!

A “home-cooked” dinner? Come on, that was funny! I’m a busy girl running a production company, decorating a new house, helping my family, taking care of Velvet, and working everyday on many various projects that pull me in ten different directions. I can cook, and have many times for Walter, but simply didn’t have time that day but still wanted him to have an enjoyable, romantic evening. A modern girl has to be able to improvise!

The beauty of having amazing cooks in the family and being in Atlanta is that I can drop by our restaurant anytime to eat great food courtesy of my cousin Che, the chef and owner, and you can too.  I’m extending a personal invitation to visit us and have a real tasty southern meal made with love and pride to anyone living or visiting Atlanta.  The Georgia Peach Restaurant and Lounge is located in the Underground at 50 Lower Alabama St SW Atlanta, GA 30303 (404) 348-4300. You can find the menu at www.dinegapeach.com.

BUTT DIAL GATE

NeNe and Cynthia’s scene had me rolling on the floor! NeNe is cray cray and I loved seeing her make all those faces and mimic Phaedra -- classic NeNe at her best. But Cynthia milked that call for all it was worth, didn’t she?I watched it over and over and didn’t fully grasp why Phaedra ever said she didn’t “give a f*ck about Cynthia coming to her event” because I thought they were friends. I also didn’t understand why Phaedra denied ever using profanity, because I have definitely have heard her use that type of language before while getting to know her. I’m not judging, because I have said worse.  I don’t know the entire history between these two, but it appears as though Cynthia and Phaedra have always supported each other in the past.



If they are friends, I felt it was duplicitous for Phaedra to speak of her in that manner at all. For someone that prides herself on having proper manners and etiquette, Phaedra’s profanity-laced slight at Cynthia was crass and unnecessary at best. Phaedra has been welcoming to me thus far, and I truly hope that it has been genuine interactions. Even though I have had my fair exchange of contempt with Cynthia, I hope that we can see more sincere relations between these two and that they can mend any tension they may have with each other and move forward.

FRAUDULENT SLIP

I cannot rebut the comments about me made by someone so painfully unintelligent that she does not know how many days of the year there are, the difference between “telling a speech” and reciting or making a speech, and what an actual FREUDIAN SLIP is versus her off-the-cuff made up nonsensical phrase “fraudulent slip”. 

On a serious note, please donate to the United Negro College Fund because the mind is a terrible thing to waste. www.uncf.com

Cynthia: "I Pray We Can Make Peace"

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)!
