Kordell or Confucius? - Ep 14

Bravotv.com's Associate Editor thinks Kordell needs to publish his pearls of wisdom.

I have to start here: was anyone else worried about that Harlem Renaissance theme? I was slightly concerned that the lovable hostess who brought us "265 days a year" was going to show up looking something like this. But luckily that was not the case!

In any event, let's suss out this week's best moments, from Kandi's newest music move to yet another failed joint Housewives business venture.

No. 3 - Judge Porsha

Speaking of 265 days a year, Porsha's latest Porsha-ism goes as follows: "Guilty until proven guilty." Let's all take a moment and be glad that Porsha is not working in any legal profession.

I must admit, I find Porsha's mixed up phrases rather endearing. She kind of reminds me of Amelia Bedelia -- well intentioned, just missing the mark sometimes. For example, she'd babysit you and you'd totally mess up the recipe, but you'd have a great laugh about it afterwards and go get ice cream.

Side Note: I'm not sure what Cynthia is "guilty until prove innocent" of exactly. Giving Porsha a little bit of a hard time about not having the meeting at her house? Because we know that she is guilty of that. Maybe that wasn't the right phrase for this occasion.

No. 2 - Prayed Up

Having conquered the worlds of pop, R&B, and country music, the next frontier for Kandi is... gospel? Yes, and don't worry, she's quite aware that being the host of Kandi Koated Nights and running a dildo enterprise doesn't exactly scream gospel. But then again, who better to shake up your preconceptions?

So Kandi gave us a little taste of her latest song, Prayed Up, and it definitely had a fun, Kandi-Koated edge to it. Forget those old hymns, let's just have Kandi write all the church music from now on! I'm with Kandi's producer, if this song doesn't get people praying, nothing will.

No. 1 - Kordell or Confucius?

I'm obsessed with Kordell's pearls of wisdom. Cynthia, not so much. Some of my favorites from the Harlem Renaissance party include:

"Just try to be steady."

"Everybody's got their piece of the pie, creating a little ruckus every once and a while."

"Why y'all can't act right?"

It seems as if he's bent on becoming the Housewives peacemaker (at least where Porsha's concerned). I wonder if he could bring NeNe and Kim back together? At the very least he should publish a book of witticisms a la Benjamin Franklin.
Next week Cynthia preps for the pageant, but it may not go as smoothly as she had hoped...

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)!
