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!

Claudia: This Group Should Reserve Judgment

Claudia Jordan thinks the other 'Wives shouldn't be so willing to believe rumors. 

Bravotv.com: How shocked were you when Cynthia shared the rumor about Chocolate?

Claudia Jordan: Well I really don't know Phaedra that much to comment on her personal life, but from the little bit I am privy to, I was surprised to hear about an alleged affair considering the extreme criticism that Kenya got. At the end of the day only two people know what really did or did not happen, and I would love for this group to reserve judgment on everyone until there is confirmation. But I think a precedent had been set a long time ago, so that has opened the door to where we are now. I think it's easy to believe something negative about someone in the group, because in the past it's been shown that it takes very little actual evidence or proof for some to jump on that bandwagon. Hopefully we can get to a place where we afford each other the same benefit of the doubt that they may one day give us. At the end of the day there should be a protocol that we all follow and it should be applied to everyone. Until then I suspect we may continue to have a problem. But I am hopeful. Perhaps a lot of the drama in this group is because there are so many unresolved issues. And that combined with all the double standards in place is a sure fire recipe for disaster. I still have hope though. Again, not to have everyone be besties, but just being able to co-exist in the same space would be a major accomplishment with these ladies.

 

Bravotv.com: What were you thinking when Phaedra blew up at Kenya?

CJ: I thought it was silly and out of character. But I am glad that Phaedra had enough good sense to not actually hit Kenya. We don't need another physical altercation in this group. Again, we are all supposed to be mature ladies, so with that being said, I think the majority of us have a pretty good grasp of the English language and should be able to talk anything out without resorting to violence. Hitting each other is low class, childish, and ignorant behavior, and I'm so glad that Phaedra didn't really go there.

 

Bravotv.com: Were you surprised when Phaedra walked out?

CJ: Although this has nothing to do with me, I am around these ladies and a witness to all the shenanigans, but from what I've gathered, I wasn't surprised that Phaedra walked out. That seems to be a recurring theme in this group when things get uncomfortable. But at the same time, I am glad she did. If you ever feel the urge to put hands on someone and you are done talking, I think the best thing to do is excuse yourself and leave the situation without adding any more inflammatory language to the mix.

I would like to say that a lot of these issues in this group of course started way before I came around, but being here and seeing things with my own eyes has definitely been enlightening. It tends to get confusing as to what is acceptable and unacceptable behavior in this group, because there are clearly double standards. So in some cases it seems like it's OK to bring up sensitive information in front of the entire group, then in other cases it's not OK -- seems like it all depends on whom it's about. In a perfect world I wouldn't expect for us not to spill tea -- I mean that's what we do -- but if folks expect to be pulled aside to be asked about a rumor or some "tea," then I would hope they would abide by that rule and extend the same courtesy. That's all. Because the way it is now is causing far too much confusion, and as long as there is confusion and unfairness, there is going to be conflict. I've never been around so many arguments, so much shadiness and mudslinging in my life. And especially not since I graduated high school back in the '90s! Maybe there is a way we can get us to a place where we can co-exist peacefully. Hey, a girl can dream can't she?

Again, I want to thank all the viewers that tune in weekly to The Real Housewives of Atlanta. I just returned from Charlotte, North Carolina where I was making a few appearances at CIAA and the love and support I got from hundreds of people that wanted to take pictures and talk about the show; it was amazing! So many people told me they love what I'm bringing to RHOA and I just wanted to say thank you to any of them that may be reading this. The show is loved by so many and I feel we have a responsibility to entertain and hopefully inspire. We've got a lot of the season left and I hope the fans will be happy with how everything turns out! Love you guys!
