Who knew vacation could be so stressful?
Just when I thought things were calming down, Jill and Ramona were back at it again and the group stuck to our usual split of blondes on one side and brunettes on the other. Even though the other girls were set on “staying neutral,” they couldn’t help but get involved and stir up more trouble! I decided to just sit back and not let it ruin a beautiful trip. The girls have known each other a lot longer than I have, and it’s not my place to weigh in on every argument. Besides, I was too busy having fun!
I was so excited when Kelly, LuAnn, and I got to have authentic Moroccan henna tattoos applied. The beautiful designs are the inspiration behind my own completely bare henna tattoos, a piece of Morocco I knew I had to bring home. Of course nothing was peaceful for too long and Alex had to come in and cause drama. She was so fired up she could barely get a sentence out. I actually started to feel sorry for her by the end of the trip -- another reason why I didn’t want to be confrontational or join any arguments.
We had so many incredible meals in Morocco, but I was a little thrown off when we had to cook our own on the last day. I totally don’t get the point of cooking. You take all this time to prepare the food, and then it’s gone! Luckily, I got the staff to help out with my tangine, which the girls found hilarious. What can I say? I find an assistant everywhere I go.
I LOVE your NewYawk accent. No fake "Dahhhling" for you. You're the real deal. Watch your back. These women are vicious.
Hey girl.... Just wondered where your heart was at at the begining of this season... Was on the fence... But, I can see that you are someone that thinks along the same lines as me... You are your own woman, and doesn't take crap from anyone... Good for you... I look forward to seeing more of you... And your opinions... Aloha from Hawaii!!!
I see you duck out of the craziness, I don't blame you! I have never seen such a group of delinquent communicating woman in my life!!
Cindy, glad to see you didn't get involved in the other spats -- better to stay as uninvolved as possible. Good job!
I love you Cindy. I think you're hilarious and so down to Earth. I love all of you girls (sometimes Ramona not so much though) and I think you would all be great girlfriends to one another if the cameras were not rolling. I'm glad you decided to stay out of the drama this last episode... it was nice. - KC
Cindy, you are smart not to get involved in the pettiness of these gals. You are the sane one and the rest of them are "Sybil"! You never know who you're gonna get. You are smart, beautiful,sweet and funny so please don't stress about if they like you or not. I'm glad you are not a doormat to any of them. I cannot believe the things that some of these so-called ladies have said to you. You seem to be the only real housewife this season. You Rock!
It's nice to see someone who I really believe is actually neutral. There are some housewives who claim to be but you see them running back and forth back-stabbing and totally taking sides. I think you are the only one that seems to be more calm and not so over dramatic and emotional. Please continue to stay the same and don't let anyone rub off on you and change!
Staying neutral in a hotbed of complex, often baffling relationships can't be easy. You've been keeping things real (even when irked or understandably upset) and letting go some asinine insults. Well done.
Cindy, I was pleased to see you being objective when LuAnn and Kelly attacked Alex at the 8:00 secret dinner. It was nice when you said you felt bad for her. Then I was disappointed when (after Kelly escorted Alex out the room - HOW RUDE!!) you gossipped with the girls by commenting negatively about Alex. It was THEN that you should shared that you felt bad for Alex, not months later alone one on one in front of a camera.
You were funny in this episode. I could see that you didn't like seeing the bullying behavior of Luann and Kelly toward Alex. What was up with all of the name calling ... "Alex, you're weird!" WTF????
I don't know why you would put yourself on a show like this? You are too real and down to earth for these people! You are a good person and it's very obvious you are not comfortable on camera. I understand that. I also don't know if you have had that many friendships in your past. If you are doing this show to get more advertising for you business - well i understand that...you gotta do what you gotta do but really..if I was you I would not do it. Besideds the NY housewives show is the most boring show now without Bethenny on it. I love how you are an independent woman! And your babies are adorable!! Take Care!!
Alex couldn't speak because LuAnn and Kelly kept interrupting her which you noted when you said that they steamrolled her.
I am loving you Cindy..... so what if you need an assistant in the kitchen.... not everyone can cook with a toaster oven.... lmao.... give me a break.... You be yourself girl... you are seeing some of these women as they truly are...... CRAZY.. and you are not afraid to tell them so.... regardless of the stupid Pecking Order .... lol.... I love your honesty and I loved how you handled yourself with Sonjia.... Ramona is a looney... but u stayed clear of all that drama..... My best regards to you girl......
you are the only normal one in the bunch. the others are the high school crowd and none of the b.s. makes a diddle to a tree.
Put yourself in Alex's position. If you were upset about a fiends pain, wouldn't you try to help. She was asked to come back and then got attacked to the point where she could not explain herself. You would have been irate. You brunettes are huge bully's.
Good for you and the way you handled the"children" on this trip. You know what I liked about you, nothing. You said nothing and that was the way to handle it. Quietly minding your business, now thats a class act.
Thanks for not getting caught up in the drama! I couldn't take one more person adding to the craziness.
Love, love, love you as an addition.....Truly you have some common sense about the whole female psyche and petty arguments. I don't know why I watch cause somedays it is just a bunch of immature bickering.
Cindy, Wise choice to remain neutral. As you said, you are new and you don't have to weigh in on every "discussion". Sit back, enjoy and get the lay of the land. It looks overwhelming so think you took the road less traveled, good decision.
There's an art to cooking. Not everyone likes to cook, but really? Not to be able to appreciate it? Hope you have a better attitude when you are planning to feed guests! Nice to see you actually got to enjoy some of the trip.... You should feel sorry for Alex, she is the most grounded one of the bunch and has perpetually been the ladies punching bag through the years. You reacted the way you did when Sonya went after you a bit, and that was nothing next to what Alex had been through the first few seasons.
Love how you try to stay out of all the drama that is so high school! I am enjoying watching you and getting to know you...so to speak! A welcomed edition to the cast!
What a wise woman to stay out of other people's business. Maybe Kelly and Luann will learn from you, one can only hope. They are both such phonies.
Cindy, you are a breath of fresh air this season! You bring a different perspective and a fantastic balance between the ladies of NYC. You are genuine, honest, kind, and call it as you see it. It takes all kinds and I certainly do appreciate the different personalities, as a long-time fan of the show, but your down-to-earth presence is a fine example of a woman who is smart, successful, funny, kind, honest and classy without all the pageantry and "dah'ling" nonsense.
Cindy, You are a breath of fresh air this season. Like you, it gets on my nervers when all the ladies talk, over each other, with a million conversations all at once. I like how you DONT indulge in that!! Don't CHANGE!
Cindy - The drama on your trip was all rooted in LuAnn's behavior. She isn't the Queen of Morroco the last time I looked. You seem to see things as they really are so I hope you stick to your guns.
LuAnn is a mean girl. She and Jill are power brokers. Ramona was pulling the same kind of stunt/behavior on you at lunch.
We can tell you're above this. Good luck! Life (and vacations) are NOT supposed to be this stressful.
Way to go Cindy, stay out of it. You did have a moment about the seating arrangement in the van that was uncall for, the hanger thing no. After that you kind of mellowed out good for you. Kellie on the other hand went in deep.
I am hopeful that you won't get sucked in by all the drama and continue to stay the voice of reason... Alex used to be that voice but she unfortunately caved in... The pressure was too great for her... Her expressions and camera interviews used to be brilliant, hysterical and right on the money! (Thug in a cocktail dress? Excellent!) ... Unfortunately she started playing to the camera... Stay strong, Stay Neutral! :)The audience needs a barometer.... Otherwise RHONY will turn into RHOOC, where no one really, truly cares for each other anymore and sadly all of the women have become very selfish, self centered and shallow :( This season is just as entertaining as ever. I thought what with Bethenny leaving perhaps the series would suffer and there wouldn't be much of a plot line because the bond between her and Bethenny was so appealing and intriguing but I'm glad to see that didn't happen... Ultimately what keeps us viewers coming back isn't just the drama but the REAL relationships you all have with one another. How you interact and how you truly care or don't care for one another. And, of course, how you resolve your differences...That's why it's called a "Reality" TV. Believe me we can sense insincerity, phoniness and pandering on the screen and that's what causes us to lose interest. Seven women shouting over one another at one time does not make for great TV... We want to hear all of your voices because you are all special and deserved to be heard. Good luck to you in life and of course on RHONY... Enjoy your summer!
Cindy; Cooking is the best therapy. When you cook for other people they are so appreciative; every time my grandma brings me cookies she is telling me how much she loves me. When you cook for yourself you are taking time out of your busy day to nurture and please yourself. You are saying, "Yes, I deserve to treat myself well." Maybe you are not a "foodie", but yes, taking a day and cooking your favorite foods for your own enjoyment is the culinary equivalent of a day at the spa.
At least you enough sense to realize that calling Alex back at the henna time was a mistake. I agree that this was a nutty vacation, but it is all too typical of a Bravo TV va-kay.
Cindy, props to you for seeing what they were doing to Alex. You were the only member of the group to get that.
Cindy, you are by far my favorite housewife. You seem to be a normal person who is surrounded by crazies. I love your style. Please come back next season.
Cindy, Continue to take the high road and stay out of all the petty fighting. I felt so sorry for you when you couldn't get a word in edge wise. It's hard when all the others are trying to get camera time (Jill).
I enjoy your maturity and neutrality, but you're not a doormat. I think LuAnn and Kelly have become the bullies of the group - shutting down whoever they don't like. Ramonna & Sonja act like drunken teenagers. Jill's working on it but still gets pulled in. Alex seems a little lost, insecure maybe. Hang in there!!!
You really were the voice of reason last night. I had to have a drink and walk away from the screen it was so stressful, and I wasn't even there.
Good choice at staying out of it all. If you get involved they will probably treat you like they did Kelly last season. Keep your class and your assistants haha. Good on you if you've got it like that.
Cindy, You're new to the show so a bit of advice. Next year this time it could be YOU that Luanne, Jill and Kelly are attacking. Don't get too close to anyone.
I would love to see more of you and your children. Hopefully this will happen either later this season or the next. You do seem to be real. I don't always understand some of your problems with some of the others but when you are in new situations and trying to find your way I'm sure that it is easy to get frustrated. And Sonia can frustrate the best of them. I don't like the blonde/brunette split. I hope that things can get better! Good luck.
