Peter "Must be Losing His Damn Mind"

Cynthia shares her reaction to her sister's extended stay and the fight with her husband.

Welcome back to another drama filled episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta! Let’s go!

We all know that I am not a big fan of surprises, and for whatever reason my life seems to be full of them. Surprise! Surprise! My sister Mal is back!!! And not only is she back, she plans on staying for a while. Like two months! Inhale. Exhale. OK, remember when Mal walked out of our anniversary party? Well, until now (and a few awkward phone calls here and there), we have not seen each other. She has been traveling abroad with her husband Chris (he plays basketball overseas) living between Paris, Argentina, Puerto Rico, and Korea for the past two years. Initially, for the obvious reasons, I welcomed the space (not more than Peter did! LOL!). However, at the end of the day, Mal is my only sister, and I did miss her. After a while, LOL.

So again, although there were a few phone calls over the past two years, we never discussed our big anniversary party blowout and things were just never the same between us. That said, I was happy when Mal showed up on my doorstep. Well, that happiness was kind of short lived when I realized she was moving in! Now, y'all know, family or not, ALL house guests eventually have an expiration date. But hey, a lot of time had passed and I was open to going with the flow. Like most things in life, things started off great! We played catch up and our sisterly chats were loving, funny, and even a little shocking!

Let me go on and get this out of the way right quick -- when Mal told me that she and her husband have sexual relations two to three times a day, I almost had to be carried out of the bead store! But then I thought, most of the time they are only together six months out of the year. When he is abroad playing ball, she spends half of the year with him and the other half at their home in Houston with her daughter. So then it started to make sense. When they see each other, it's always like a honeymoon and they get it in. Then she comes back to the states, and has six months to rest and reboot! In any case, I know that sex is a big part of any healthily marriage, and I have been doing my wifely duties on a more consistent basis since my fibroid procedure. Enough about that!

Speaking of wifely duties, let's move on to Peter. Lord, where do I start? OK, no marriage is perfect. Peter and I are most definitely a work in progress. To say the least! I understand Peter's frustration about Mal popping up on us. For two months! I think he would have been more receptive to a long weekend, a week, or even two weeks. Two months is a long time. I don't know! I felt like I was stuck between a rock and a hard place, because I understood Peter's point, but I was also kind of excited about reconnecting with Mal.

When it comes to family, sometimes you have to deal with things that you may not want to deal with. Let's see what happens.Next, I attempt to talk to Peter about husband/wife stuff -- finances, goals, business, and our sex life. Um, that didn't go too well. Did he really suggest getting a man cave across town? I am just going to cough that up to early signs of dementia. Clearly, he must be losing his damn mind!

Last but not least, I have a very big problem with the way Peter communicates when he is upset. He wants to get all loud and throw around a couple of his choice curse words. I am a communicator, and this drives me crazy. I am all for a good drag out argument every now and then, but the person that talks the loudest and uses the most curse words is not necessarily the winner of the argument. Therefore, I refused to turn up on him (let’s be clear, we all can get loud and cuss when we want to), because I think it's just a dumb way to try to have an effective conversation. Keep us in your prayers!

 

Thank you all for watching! I appreciate all of you. Trust me there is more drama to come! Make sure you tune in every Sunday night at 8/7c. Only on Bravo!

 



Love you guys!

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!
