This relationship was supposed to work two ways. Number one I had my family create an outreach event specifically for Cynthia’s pageant participants so that they would have the opportunity to be hands on in giving. They were supposed to come the Saturday before the pageant and make lunches with fresh produce and hand deliver them to the people we had solicited to be at the outreach event created for her. Number two Cynthia was going to donate ten percent of proceeds to Hosea Feed the Hungry and Homeless. This collaboration would have also benefitted the pageant in that she could use the charity’s affiliation to solicit money from sponsors and help with securing an event space. Having the charity involved was of great value to the pageant.
Anyhow I go to lunch on a Wednesday to meet my "friend" for midday drinks and lunch only to once again be smacked in the face with another surprise. Wow, she doesn't want me or the charity involved? Why? Because she says she never received a document from the charity stating they are affiliates. First, that document has nothing to do with her giving proceeds to help feed the hungry. Second she only gave two weeks for this huge organization to get all these docs sent to her, which by the way she could have received after the event or closer to the actual day of. When she asked me to involve the charity and have them create an outreach event inviting some 1,000 needy people, I jumped right on it. The charity sent volunteers and paid staff to make the event possible for her pageant. Now she is telling me never mind because she didn't get the logo (that she could have gotten off Internet), so therefore she doesn't want me or the charity involved. When sitting across from someone who obviously doesn't understand that you cannot just involve an internationally known charity and then not follow through, you do what I did -- gracefully bow out!
Porsha, I for one don't believe in a man telling me what to do. I have always worked and wanted to help our family also. Love ya girl just stay true to yourself and do what you feel right for yourself. You are young and people will say things it is true wisdom comes with age. And would love to see in in the next season. Kick Kenya in (hope she is not in the next season) I will let you finish my sentence LOL
Porsha just want you to know that there are MANY, MANY, MANY, MANY men who would be honor to have you as their partner. So keep your head up chiiile and make his big head suffer! You are Hosea' grand baby. Show him what you working with!
Porsha your husband may be a bit controlling, I'm sure you are well aware of this. But the last thing you need to do is listen to any of the other housewives. I'm sure they all run & control their households because they are the breadwinners. Greg is looking & acting so desperate & thirsty because Nene is calling the shots. Peter was dead broke when he married Cynthia. Kandi is a desperate "sugar mama". Phaedra picked up a jailbird who is also living off of her funds. I hope you & Kordell come back next season. Then we will be able to see a successful black man who isn't living their sorry a**es off a woman.
Now Porsha, I've been standing up for you, not because you're so innocent because unless a whole lot is being edited out ( you have some stuff going on with you).
Just as I've mentioned before, once Cynthia realized she would have a decent turnout she decided to blow you off just so that she could keep ALL the proceed. Now what about ALL doesn't anyone understand? Bear in mind that she has a controlling husband and no one knows if he even works anymoreOKKKK. Then she tries to shift that controlling story from her husband to yours(WHATEVER)!
Now, as far as your husband is concerned, it quite admirable the way you love and respect him but----I could not understand why he dealt with Cynthia the way he did at his party! Cynthia has been hanging her purse strings on the possibility that she and NeNe are tight. If it were not for your husband, I would guess that you would have never attended the pageant and many of us would have had your back on that one!
No need to kiss up on Cynthia’s $%&, I liked her in the beginning before realizing that she is spineless, phony and boring.
-Truth is-EnDoFtHeDaY, you can tell that NeNe is cordial to her (Cynthia) because she kisses up like there’s no tomorrow. But NeNe could take this phony chick or leave her.
Cynthia was right to dump you from the pageant! If you had been honest with your husband he would have thought so too. You did nothing, despite what you claim. She did not have the time to deal with your ways and she moved on, simple as that. No offense should have been taken, you were exposed for the lack luster person you seem to be.
HoganHave you been paying attention? How many major events have you planned and only given someone that you wanted to be a co-sponsor (TWO WEEKS)
Now, I will say- if you are also guilty of doing that or something even closely resembling YOU"RE GHETTO! problem solved! CHECK MATE.....time to move along.
HoganCynthia did it so she can keep the money for herself. It was suppose to be for "Charity" remember? Cynthia had no experience in pagent herself. The workers were the ones who made it successful, not Cynthia. She wasted no time to take the credit though.
You are cute as a button and extremely funny to watch. I'm glad you're on the show! Kenya and Cynthia drive me crazy with all their fake storylines on the show. You and Cordell are a great couple and its nice to watch two people in love like that. Hang in there and try not to drop down to their level. Kandi and Phaedra are good women for you to cruize with on the show.
Good for you Porsha, stand firm in your convictions, too many people are pleasers and that's what gets them in trouble or divorce. My only peev I have with you is while your standing for what's right think about what you say about others and how you constantly pick on Kenya. She's a lost soul and don't have the support and love you have in your life so have pitey on her and stop being evil towards her (making digs at her). Let it go.
I wonder if Cynthia may be a little envious of your lifestyle. She and Peter's financial woes were on display a few seasons ago so I'm sure her lifestyle doesn't afford her the luxury of being a full time housewife. Please be careful with this group of women. They will attack your marriage and the way you run your household but many of them would secretly trade with you if they could. Stand firm in what you believe and remember, it's your life. You don't owe these women any explanations. I don't think Kordell is controlling. I think you should listen to him over a bunch of viewers who you don't know. He's older and wiser and you guys seem to be happy in your marriage.
I agree 150% . any of them would do well to have a husband that they could respect. thats their problem. they dont respect their man enough to reallize the he is the man and demands the respect that Cordell does. My hat is of to you Porsha. Be that wife. I feel you!!!!!
I am so sick and tired of people making comments about people's marraiges and how they "let" people tell them what to do and assume that the husband doesn't respect his wife because he has "say so" in his wife's affairs. Hell, who do you want Porsha to listen to - - you strangers or her loving husband??? I've been married for 22 years and my husband and I have a wonderful relationship strictly because we don't let other people interfere with our marriage. If Porsha chose not to go the strip club because she knows her husband would not like it, then why should she go - to please who? I'm sure there are places she doesn't want her husband to go also and he respects her too. I don't find her to be an airhead at all. She is fun and loving and lucky to have such a wonderful husband who is concerned about her all the time. I have the same kind of husband and I wouldn't let anyone not even my family come between us. So Porsha, laugh at these negative, stupid comments and continue to do you and your husband. Later for the haters!!!!
Porsha, you have alot to learn from Kandi and Phaedra. Observe them and learn. As for your marriage, be who you want to be. That's YOUR husband. It's YOUR life and happiness. Best to you.
What are you on? Porsha does not need advice from 'Miss un-original 'I would do anything for money" Sex Toys from China Kandi, or Wanta-be Top Attorney Gap Toothed Lying Phaedra.
keno.jersey MoniLAI agree...they should only be acquantances...not friends.. Don't let them corrupt you,..you are better than that Porsha.
Porsha acts like she's so righteous and does no wrong and her low blows to Kendra last night were so below the belt that she should have clocked her. Whenever Kordell gets rid of Porsha for someone younger, I hope that Kendra is there to see it. She offered the olive branch by making breakfast and should have put arsenic in it.
Kenya may have made breakfast but when Porsha came down and offered to help, Kenya called her stupid (again) for not knowing how to use the one cup coffee maker.
Wow! You should seriously learn how to make coffee! Can you even screw in a light bulb by yourself? Pitiful!
Why is it so stupid not to know how to make coffee? If she never used the machine before than she has to learn to use the machine...I don't understand how that makes her stupid.
I've been making coffe for 30 years and don't know how to use that particular coffee maker. She's not stupid at all!
evestar50 I am so tired of people talking about her making coffee - that was a Keurig coffee maker - which uses K-cups to make INDIVIDUAL cups of coffee. Each person makes their OWN. Kenya was wrong those were not creamers but K-cups of coffee - so please stop saying Portia can't make coffee. BTW I have a Keurig and its great!!!
cheriefran Ha ha ha ha ! Kenya insults her own intelligence by going after Porsha's coffee making skills! BAM!
I am so proud of Porsha for standing up and having some morals and not attending the strip club. Christians are supposed to be persecuted for standing up for what is right. That's how u know u are about that life, that Christian walk.
Also most marriages end up in divorce in this country. Do you and be happy. Don't listen to them they are jealous you don't have to work and are cute. Again I am so proud of you.
Why would a bunch of middle aged women (except Porsha) want to go to a strip club?? It doesn't make sense to me at all. I wouldn't want to go either.
You are not very nice. You are fake you say things and give a fake smile knowing you intend it to hurt people you clealy do not like. That is not rising above a situation. You know you would hurt Kenya telling her he had a good time. You could have let that drop. I hope you sit and watch this season really watch it and see what you've done how careless you've been and see if you should be proud of yourself. We have control on only one thing and that's how we react to things. Maybe Kenya's wronged you but what about your behaviour. " maybe you'd get a husband" who says that. A mean girl.
@Topsy Oh please! Have you watched the show? Kendra has been evil to all of the ladies at some point or the other! So now Porsha needs to kiss her "stallion" but because she decided to cook some breakfast?? I don't think so! Porsha keep doing you and that is not being mean but also letting them know that just because you are beautiful and rich and without having to work doesn't mean that you have to kiss anyone's but! I am a wife and mother of one and I work hard everyday. If my husband could have his way, I could be cute everyday and not work. But until such time, I'll keep hoping and wishing. OAN my hubby did just buy me a Range Rover! :-) BY THE WAY- i know its a long shot but I am LA march 19th -22nd and in Atlanta the 1st week of April for business purposes and I would love to meet you and learn more about your foundation. Hopefully there will be a divine intervention and we will cross paths. I'll keep my fingers crossed. Stay beautiful diva!
U REALLY BAD WITH KENYA... AND WHO ITS JEALOUS OF HER? HER LIFE ITS CONTROL BY HER HUSBAND....
@ Dorrian can you learn how to formulate a sentence and how to spell check your words before you try to put anyone on blast?
Porsha, your husband controls you. You have no thoughts of your own. It's gross. You are an airhead.
I find it interesting how Cynthia decided not to partner with the charity after realizing she could fill the seats at the pageant. Slick way to back out so that he would not have to share the money.
Either you know Porsha personally or you're taking this show too seriously. Your inability to express emotions in a mature manner and limited vocabulary is comical. If you can't stand the heat, get off the blog.
Of course Cordell controls Porsha. She is a bit flighty and inmature. She can be a mean girl too. Her lack of responsibility at the benefit she invited Kenya to, bothering to know Kenya's Pagent title during introductions as well asknowing the where abouts of Cynthia's needed paperwork was shows she doesn't have the ability to be trusted alone. Cordell understands that. Her best service is taking care of Cordell.
Those two little words do not tell us what you think only that you don't know how to express yourself without profanity. And you are not addressing vicki1fan because I'm sure she's well respected and loved. Try again to tell us why you don't agree with the first statement. I think she got it right. She's a really good wife but really young.
vicki1fan_ Cordell does not control her he just voices his opinion on situations and give his feedback which is good in a marriage because it helps each other grow and not get stuck in certain behaviors.
I like porcha and Cordell think he's old school and trying to Protect his wife from very cunning conniving and agressive Women espically the new she broke and crazy Kenya. And this season Cynthia is coming across cold and calculating As if she's siding with Kenya I think she's using Kenya to create Laos so she can sit back and watch and laugh cuddles to cordell For not allowing abusiness meeting in his home Cynthia has office To conduct her business in was she going to pay porsha to use Her house since she wants to be paid ever time the bailey agency Is used. She also made sure porsha walked into a hostile inviro- Ment at the meeting. The way she fired her was nasty could she Be jealous that they finally have some that's younger prettier And living a life style shed like to have I want the old Cynthia Back and truly believe we can do without Kenya Moore Where's our girl Marlo Hampton that's who we want bye kookie Kenya please
You respect your husband and your husband respects you. It's apparent that you love each other and hold each other in high regard. Plus, Cordell is good at checking mess which is what a lot of folk are mad about.
Your marital roles are obviously more traditional and I rather appreciate it. I don't blame Cordell for not wanting people y'all don't know in your home, especially when he is not there. And Cynthia was wrong to even attempt inviting others into YOUR home for HER business meeting!
She has a home of her own and a place of BUSINESS at which she can conduct all the meetings she wants with whomever she wants and that's what she should have done from the beginning. To take offense to your husband's position for HIS home and YOUR home and THEN share it with her staff was way out of line-- it was disrespectful AND unprofessional. I think her attempt to get further up into your personals and invite others along backfired and it angered her.
She'll get over it...and she won't try that again, at least not with you. Big ups to y'all for setting boundaries.
You know, Godspoet4life I believe you are right. People are angry with Kordell because he checks the mess right away. Doesn't want his wife in crazy mess. Since he already stated in Aguilla that she could start something, this shows just how far he will allow mess to go and it certainly is not over the top.
