Cynthia's New Diva-Tude

Porsha was proud of Cynthia for reading Kenya.

Once again the ladies of the South (except for one) did not disappoint. (Yep shade. Hehe!)

I really enjoyed seeing a couple of the scenes that I didn't even see coming. The scene with Pheadra, Cynthia, and NeNe I thought was really cute. Sometimes I feel like you have to get out of your comfort zone and let your hair down to move past issues and really give yourself a chance to get to know someone. I feel like that's what they were able to do at the gym.

So with a whole lot of sweat and laughs, NeNe and Cynthia let down their guard down and invite Kim to the successful women celebration. (Hell just froze over. LOL!) Bet you didn't see that coming. I’m pretty proud of her for that. A lot of times people say "money changes you." Well the way I see it, money should change you in a positive way. Money most of the time equals success, so when you’re successful, you don't have time to be stuck holding on to old drama that really doesn't matter.

Now as for Kandi, people have been saying she was hating on NeNe when she cautioned Pheadra about having her meet up with them for a workout. As far as I’m concerned me, I didn't get how she was hating. To be honest, it just seems like she was asking her friend why now? So is that hating? I'm not sure.

I give Kim props for trying to be the bigger person and come to NeNe’s party, but then had to take it right back when she walked right past the bathroom and out to her car after telling NeNe she'll be back. My mouth was left wide open, because NeNe seemed sincere and hopeful for their friendship to be rekindled. I feel like Kim at the very least could have sent Sweetie back in to say, “Hey we really have to run.” But at the end of the day, who’s to say how long it will take for two people to be at the same place of forgiveness at the "same dayum time." I will say, like you guys, I'm hopeful that it works out between them in the end. It would be good if the both of them could sit down and talk one-on-one and get back to that place which made them to be friends in the first place. Let's get to Cynthia. First I would like to say I do like the new diva that has been born in Cythnia. "Kudos chica mamma mia!" She definitely seems like she is ready. But I tell you, I still can't get over her not showing that “clown” the door in the first episode. But anyhow, she's making me proud with all this in-your-face attitude. She definitely will read you on the sly; you might not catch it all, but trust me, you will feel it later. Asking Kenya what year she won was PRICELESS. LMBO! Go in and let have!

As for Kendra...oops Kenya, I wish she would have stayed seated in them several seats I gave her in last week’s blog. LOL!

Lastly I want to say I appreciate you watching these lovely ladies of the South. Lookout for me this Sunday! I’ll be making a "fashionably late appearance." I'm looking forward to you all getting to know me and what I'm about. I'm so excited to have you all on this journey through life with me; I have a great life, but not perfect. You'll see peaks and valleys as I'm on my way to having it all. What is having it all? Great family, successful career, a heart for giving, and friends for life. There are some bumps along the way, but I'm buckled in for the ride. And you’re invited!


P.S. Lots of love to all my supporters. I also would like to say to my supporters stay cool, calm, and classy. You don't have to take up for me, because trust me, the haters are coming. One thing you should know, it comes with the territory. I'm prepared for all of what I'm in store for: "I'm about this life." I'm living my life out loud with no apologies, and I believe my steps are guided by the Big Man above. Let’s all live by what my mom always tells me, "If you stand for nothing you'll fall for anything." Let’s live our life to try to be a good example and a positive influence on someone's life. Know who you are and whose you are! Rise above and soar like eagles to your purpose!

xoxo
See you soon!

Kenya: This Was My Season of Vindication

Kenya Moore opens up about her journey this season and gives an update on her pilot.

Life Twirls On
I love this title because it’s a testament to my life. This season has been my year of vindication. Thank God, because it was a long time coming. Some of my fans were so angry that I had been lied on for two years that they wanted blood. They and myself were angry and hurt that someone would physically attack me and never issue an apology for their actions, regardless of whether or not they felt justified. And who could forget the years of being called a whore a thousand different ways all in the name of Jesus?

Forgiveness
I’ve learned many lessons along the way and forgiveness is one. I have to admit I could not have done it on my own. I have my family to thank for that. I’m from Detroit and I was raised in survival mode from day one with a mother who vowed to “dog me for the rest of my life.” Therefore, I will always be a fighter. But my focus has shifted and I have too much to lose. I have realized I cannot make a person do the right thing, I cannot educate beyond one’s rudimentary limitations, and I cannot change anyone. However, what I can do is take responsibility for myself and sit back and let karma do the rest -- funny how that works.

My Sister’s Success
One of my favorite principles is you have to be as happy for another person’s success as you are for your own. I’m that girl who roots for all the girls to win. This isn’t me versus NeNe… One can’t deny that just six years ago no one knew who NeNe was and now she has had some acting success. I congratulate her as another woman who has worked my entire life in the entertainment industry and all of our accomplishments must be acknowledged and respected alike. There is room for us all -- not just one at a time. I refuse to pull someone down like a crab in a barrel; jealousy has never existed in my heart. With that said, it’s a lot easier to root for someone that is humble, gracious, and most of all thankful.

“As an artist, I’m sensitive about my sh--” –Erykah Badu

LOL! I’m no different. I single handedly wrote, executive produced, financed, created, directed, and starred in my independent television pilot. Although the viewers only saw a glimpse of what it really takes to produce a TV show, it’s no joke. My name was on the line as well as my financial investment. But if I am going to gamble, I’d bet on me every time!

All the girls and I were in a good place but I still felt vulnerable. It’s torture to expose yourself in that way, to allow people to experience and criticize your work. But as you know, everything is not for everybody. With that said, it is a comedy and I did what I set out to do and that was make people laugh and entertain them. They all seemed to really enjoy it, and I especially appreciated Kandi, Demetria, and Claudia’s enthusiasm and love they showed me during the screening.

As a producer, it’s most fulfilling is to be able to employ others and give opportunities to talented people who may not otherwise be afforded them. Over 50 people worked on this production, and I want to thank my cast and crew for their priceless contributions and my Co-Executive Producer, Brandon DeShazer, for always coming through for me. There was so much excitement on social media as #LifeTwirlsOn was trending, creating a demand to see the entire show! The viewers have spoken and we will be airing the pilot very soon! Stay tuned for an official announcement.

To Team Twirl:
I see you, I hear you, and I thank you for fighting my battles for me. A lot of people have followers, but I truly have loyal fans. You have my back and I couldn’t do this without you. There was so much new positivity for me this season that it is unchartered territory for me. Don’t worry, I’m still that fiery, funny, shady, crazy Kenya that will read you for filth while twirling on my 5” heels you all have come to love or hate. From Celebrity Apprentice to Millionaire Matchmaker and talk shows like Wendy Williams, you continue to show up and make my shows some of the highest rated ever. Love me or hate me, I appreciate the fact that you can’t stop watching me! I love and appreciate you all.

Now Twirl!
