REALITY TEA AND THE REAL ME

This has been a truly amazing week for me. During a weeklong press trip to NY I got to visit the vibrant and funny larger-than-life Andy Cohen as a guest of Watch What Happens Live! In case you missed it please visit Bravotv.com. It’s great to be able to reveal more of who I am outside of the RHOA and their short clips of me every week.

The highlight of the week was my appearance on the Wendy Williams show. It felt like I was hanging out with an old girlfriend. Wendy is tough but I LOVE her outspokenness, realness, and the sweetness underneath the hard shell. Hmmm… wonder why?

I got to set the record straight on the Cynthia Bailey Jet casting debacle and my undeserved mean girl moniker and why my visceral reaction to ignorance and blatant disrespect in regards to my journey to Miss USA and where and who I am today.

I’m on my way to a much-deserved vacation… Thanks for all the love and support! I appreciate all of you who are giving me a chance to win your hearts over because “I’m already in yo’ head Anna Mae” – Ike Turner. NO MORE DRAMA MAMA

I love seeing Kim with her girls. They seem wise beyond their years and give mom Kim great advice. The family seems to be adjusting well to their new living situation.

LOOK BUT DON'T TOUCH

I’m obviously meeting with Apollo and Phaedra to discuss working on a workout video. I’m a very honest and vocal person and don’t consider complimenting Apollo on his physique flirting and certainly meant no harm or disrespect. Naturally, fitness and physique play a role in our potential upcoming venture. All present knew that it was not flirting. Phaedra had no issues with my compliments or jokes nor did my guy. And who flirts with their mate present if they were up to no good? Really, who does that? It was lighthearted and harmless people. It is still my opinion that Apollo is fine and Phaedra is a lucky woman but that is Phaedra’s husband. And I’m not interested in her husband or anyone else’s husband. Enough said.

ARE YOU SMARTER THAN A KINDERGARTENER?

I often play with my nieces who are 4-6 years old. They are so smart. So I asked them what is 2 times 2? They said 4. Right! I asked how many days are there in a year? 365! One even said 365 and 1/4. Right again! I can do this all day. But I really can’t laugh at a grown woman of 32 with this type of impediment. It’s actually very sad and hurts my heart to watch until I hear the constant jabs being taken at me. But it’s clear by her comments tonight about me is that the revisionist historian is back to her lies. If you keep needling anything it will eventually explode.


I do believe NeNe is a good judge of character and I wonder how she feels now knowing that she, Phaedra, and Kandi were thrown shade by her and lied on about attending her grandfather’s charity events just to take pictures and leave. The truth will come to light as it always does and one’s true intentions and personhood will be known. Hopefully NeNe and company will see for themselves.LADIES WHO LUNCH

I was happy to see Cynthia receive a well-deserved apology from Phaedra. Even though Miss Cynthia’s eyeball rolling was obvious and rude and she was not warm to me at the brunch, I was still polite to her nonetheless. I love getting to know the rest of the ladies like Phaedra, Kandi, and Kim who have welcomed me with open arms. Obviously, Cynthia is still holding a grudge and although NeNe said she won’t hold that against me, she isn’t exactly warm and fuzzy to me either at this point.

Since I don’t have a dog in this fight as the new girl, I just sit back and watch the show.

I’m officially on vacation. See you next week everyone.

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)!
