On the week of Thanksgiving I would be remiss if I did not take a moment to share a few words of gratitude. Oprah Winfrey once said, “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.” Despite what is going on in my personal life, I am so very thankful for all that I have. For it has been in these dark moments that I have learned some very valuable lessons and discovered my purpose.
While our show is about a group of women who socialize together, socializing does not equate to true friendship. True friends delight in the building up of one another rather than bashing each other. Throughout my tumultuous situation it has been Porsha's sweetness, NeNe's constant support and advice, coupled with Kandi's steadfast friendship that has sustained and comforted me.
The exchange between Porsha and Cynthia during this week’s episode was disappointing. I have always thought of Cynthia as a nice person, but her behavior last night was unbecoming. Porsha was late and I understand Cynthia's frustration. However, as Porsha's elder, Cynthia should be setting an example. None of us are perfect, but we can all strive to be better. Also, timing and tone are often more important than the content of a message. It is unfortunate that the content and intention of the communication were lost due to a distracting tone and premature timing.
