Thanks for tuning in to another episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Let's jump right in.
THE BAILEY AGENCY
Drama or no drama, the one thing I respect most about the ladies is their business savvy. I enjoy surrounding myself with strong, smart, business-minded women. Like some of the other ladies, I am a self-made woman. My career history and accolades speak for themselves. This was and continues to be accomplished through hard work and remaining fearless. With that said, I felt it was in bad taste and another poor judgment call for Porsha to make fun of The Bailey Agency School of Fashion, especially since I have supported her single and hair business when called upon. The Bailey Agency (www.thebaileyagencyschooloffashion.com) empowers and inspires young talent to believe in themselves and to follow their dreams.
I have known Porsha for a couple of years now, and we have never had any real issues until this last reunion. To my knowledge our only issue is I did not support her actions at the reunion. I have always made it clear that the reunion is a provocative environment for everyone involved. I adamantly did not support her choice to resort to physical violence, and I never will. Shortly after, she did WWHL, and claimed that I supported her actions and then I didn't support her actions. I do not support physical violence. Period! I thought this was clear out the gate during the reunion, when I did not jump off the couch to run to her side.
I posted a very recent picture of myself and Porsha having fun girl time. Outside of this one issue (which after we met for lunch is over as far as I am concerned) Porsha and I always have a great time together. Whenever we are in each other’s company, we laugh and crack jokes with each other. We may not always agree with each other, but always manage to get past our differences and move on. With that said, the only "two faces" that I see is the two of us smiling happily in the picture that I posted.
What is a thot? Apparently it means, "that hoe over there." OK, Porsha saying my Ebony Magazine topless photo looked "thot-ish" is actually too ridiculous for me to address. I was going to go there, but I choose not to waste my time. The ground-breaking, highly revered, historic publication doesn’t require my defense. I am honored and very proud of the creative, stylish, and tastefully directed editorial. I choose to disregard what I consider to be ignorant and move on.
To live and age is a gift and privilege some are not afforded. I am 47-years-old and have always embraced my age, owning every day. I understand what a blessing it is to wake up every morning. With age comes knowledge through experience. Pick and choose your battles. Every fight is not worth fighting. I choose to heed this advice and continue to age gracefully. I hope for Porsha to be just as fortunate. NO RESPECT
I feel an ongoing issue in this group of ladies is the blatant disrespect for people’s time. It is just rude and inappropriate. It also says a lot about a person to have no regard for another person’s time (no call or text) and feel no need to apologize. I find this behavior extremely irritating and actually offensive. Looking back, I never should have allowed my frustration to take me out of character. What could have been a respectful and cordial conversation between two grown women ended up being a pointless waste of time. My mistake was not leaving after the customary 15 minute grace period.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! I pray you and your families have an amazing holiday season. Be sure to tune in to The Real Housewives of Atlanta every Sunday at 8/7c on Bravo.
