WELCOME TO HOLLYWOOD

It’s truly a blessing when you see your dreams realized. You must have talent, dedication to your craft, and be a hard worker. When you diligently prepare, thus, when opportunity knocks you are ready. I’m very proud of NeNe for what she has accomplished in a seemingly short period of time. She’s on a network television show, and that’s a great accomplishment and widely considered by most accomplished Hollywood actors as an enviable position to be in. But even NeNe can tell you herself, she has been struggling for a while to get work as an actor. It isn’t easy to break into “show” business. But I have personally witnessed her work ethic, and as a focused woman myself, I love a woman with the same qualities and who works for everything she has. NeNe is an example of that. Bravo!

I COME BEARING GIFTS

Starting a new life is very exciting and furnishing a home is time consuming.  Since I had some extra furniture, I was happy to give NeNe a few items, rather than her wait 6-12 weeks just for a few pieces to arrive. She refused to accept them as gifts and offered to pay for them. So instead, I gave her a gorgeous mirror as a house warming present, the balance of the items she absolutely paid for. Unfortunately, I never got to see them, because she wouldn’t let us into her beautiful new house!The truth is I believe we all were excited to come to celebrate her new found success, and traveling with a group of women on a nearly 5 hour flight was exhausting. No one kept track of our schedule so we were drastically late for NeNe’s dinner party. With that said, although I was disappointed that we didn’t get an opportunity to go inside her fabulous new home, I understood her position as well by canceling the event. I hate when people are late for any reason, and when you are hosting someone, planned all day, and anticipate one’s arrival, it appears disrespectful if you feel as though they do not adhere to proper etiquette when invited into your sacred personal space. Hopefully, there will be another time.

THE EVIL TWINS

Since my cancer scare I have been working hard on my overall attitude and the way I react to high pressure and stressful situations, because life is just too short. Certainly, this trip for me could have turned out much differently had I played into the utterly mean and deceitful underhanded acts and provocative remarks that were perpetrated against me. While at dinner I was obviously very uncomfortable talking about my ex, because I was still in the healing process and only shared my relationship status with NeNe, Kandi, and Cynthia.
As much as these women talk behind my back about me, you have never once seen me engage in this type of backbiting behavior. I never start fights, I only finish them. I tried to stay clear of all the drama. With respect to Phaedra’s new bestie, clearly she was trying to provoke me by flaunting the fact that she and Kordell had invited Walter to their party. I’m not going to play this little girl’s games. Her conniving ways and remarks were meant to be inflammatory and hurtful. The fact that she was elated in saying it speaks volumes. She constantly looks for a fight with me. Her entire existence on the show has been centered around me. I get it. What else does she have? But this time and this night, I’m just not in the mood for cartoons. 

DIRTY LITTLE PIG

Seeing Phaedra in her interviews throwing dirty, cruel, and disgusting below the belt jabs about me only confirmed for me and the viewers that she is a jealous, fake, evil, and most of all a hypocritical villain. My body is natural. I clearly work hard for it. She hopes to affect my video sales, but people see through her conniving ways. With that said, there are unspeakable names you never call a woman! She is intent to malign me in any way she can with unfounded and disrespectful slurs. I have never called her a ho when she obviously got pregnant by a man fresh out of prison without using protection and lied about it to the world. I have learned from our irretrievably broken so-called friendship that if you roll around in the mud with a little pig, all you do is get dirty and the pig loves it. STALLION BOOTY IS HERE!

With that said, I’m happy to announce that my new workout video Kenya Moore’s Booty Boot Camp is now available on Amazon.com and will be in retail stores such as Target and Walmart in May. Once I decided to embark on this project, I wanted to give the consumers a focused, fun, FULL BODY workout that will yield quick results. I’ve been in front of the camera for 20 years and even won the swimsuit competition in Miss USA. I know what works. My DVD has 3 workouts and an abdominal routine, since many of you asked me what I do to stay in shape. I elicited the help of an amazing certified trainer (Nikki Veal) and writer (Donnie Whitfield M.B.A.) who helped develop and perfect the workout. I produced the video under my production company’s cachet.  Acacia, the world’s leading fitness video distributor, who also distributed Bethenny Frankel’s DVDs, worked tirelessly to ensure the consumer’s high quality expectations were met.  It feels good to know that despite the controversy surrounding the making of, my project is already a huge success.

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)!
