Cynthia Bailey

Cynthia wishes she had brought a prop to the reunion too.

on Apr 8, 20130

Hello, everyone! It is hard to believe that the season is over, and it is already reunion time. First, I want to say thank you to all my fans for the past three seasons of love and support. This has been an incredible journey for me, and I assure you the best is yet to come. I feel that I have come full circle, and I am so blessed! I believe in God, and I know that he has put me on your television for a reason. I challenge myself daily to realize that reason and do the best that I can to grow, entertain, and inspire. I only have one life to live, and living it to the fullest is the only option I choose. I know I am not for everyone, but I also know my story has touched and inspired many. If only one person has found strength, motivation, and courage from something that I did or said on this show, that is enough for me. Again, I love you guys, and thank you.

Reunion Part 1

How beautiful did all the ladies look at the reunion? I thought everyone looked fabulous and shined in their own way.

I have to say that I was a little on the quiet side for Part 1 because I was not really involved in the issues at hand. Let's not forget that we do have two more parts to go! I know that this show can mostly be about drama and shade, who can be the loudest, and talking just to hear yourself say something. However, there is also value in actually sitting back, listening, and possibly learning something. Any fool can talk, but not everyone can listen, receive, and process information. I try to choose my words carefully, and only say what I mean and mean what I say. I enjoyed seeing my businesses, family, and marriage evolve and grow. With lots of sweat, tears and hard work, I have accomplished a lot in the last three years. While much has been done, there is still much to do!

Love, love, love Cynthia...she's stunning, smart and actually the classiest of the whole crew! I can't get my head around people saying mean spirited things about her, just because she chooses her words does not make her spineless or two faced. I keep loving her more each season and looking forward to the next :D Hope that Kim is gone though, she's a stunning lady and I'm happy she's happy but she can do my head in! Can't stand women who ditch their friends soon as they get a man...ever heard heard of the girl code?

Cynthia has become so two faced and none of the other housewives pull her up on it! She stirs things up and then watches as things explode. Act ur age love

I believe Cynthia is rather MORE diplomatic than two faced. I think some people think you have to constantly say what's on tour mind 'normally in a bitchy way' to be an honest non two faced person. I know it's a reality show but come on guys this is not complete reality... How would u act if cameras were following you around daily...I think Cynthia demonstrates class which to some people may come across as 'boring or dull' on screen,which isn't the case. Don't hate the players hate the game remember they do the editing. She might not be the most entertaining.. But in my opinion along with kandi they demonstrate class and honesty in a way that's not completely hating on others for no apparent reason! X

Mrs. Bailey as a woman approaching forty in month I want to say that you inspire me. I love your courage, your intelligence, your grace, and the way you walk in the gifts that God has given you. I read some of the other comments and in my own God given right to autonomy- I do not agree with the criticism about a lack of personality. You are an awesome example of womanhood. Your words are wise. I love that when you speak- it is done so purposefully. It's unfortunate that many have acclimated themselves to aimless chatter and compare your class and wisdom to that. So with that said- I want to say thank you, for being you, because it is very inspiring to others who are growing into themselves- even as late as forty...

 

You are a leading lady in my eyes, not a supporting caricature...

For a model Cynthia Bailey doesn't seem to have a presence when entering a room now for a top model you would think she would be capable of drawing all attention towards her but she does not seem to be able to gain the attention of the person standing next to her let alone a hole room. Don't get me wrong the women is amazingly beautiful and if I looked that good when I'm her age I will be a very happy lady but for all her looks she has no personality. Find a voice Cynthia and make it your own!! All criticism is good criticism ;)

Cynthia, you were a joy to watch this season (except for the Kenya/Phadra drama you help to create). You are a very lovely, smart, fashionable lady. I'm glad you're on the show.

 

That being said, I'm not understanding why Peter took Kenya's relationship with Walter so personally. I like Peter (he's an old G) but seriously, why did he get so worked up over her relationship at the reuion. What gives?

Cynthia, you go with who influences you the best with lies. Kenya? She needs to get off the show. NeNe is a trouble-maker. She obviously hasn't changed.

Cynthia is siding up with Kenya because Nene is advising her that its a good show strategy.  Nene hates Phaedra, and always has, and since Phaedra and Kandi are friends, she wants CYnthia to keep Kenya "on their side" to cause trouble and keep the show interseting.  Just look how Nene laughs when Kenya does something horribly mean or outrageous.  They wanted Porsha off the show because she is too young and might distract the viewers attention towards a younger cast and jeopardize their position on the show!

Cynthia should be irritated with Kenya for being a copycat witht the pagent idea, but she's not showing it on TV

But overall Cynthia is enjoyable to waatch, she is stunningly beautiful, funny and has a sense of manners and dignity that I wish some of the other housewives had.

I personally think Cynthia is everyones friend,,,,,,,,not! She goes from one to the other telling what someone said, stirring the pot, I like her, until I saw how 2 faced she is the only one she isnt that way to is NeNe, I know she is her friend but she thinks NeNe will get her farther. I havent trusted her since the trip where she tells Kiim about she didnt want  to hold a black baby, that was b.s.

Cynthia you're a lovely person but you will definitely have to stop listening to Kenya and her lies, I am surprise that you believe her lies that Porsche told her about you and Nene have a lesbian relationship. Kenya is definitely a jealous and a strife maker and you all needs to feed her with a very long spoon. That woman is evil it shows in he eyes like darn rattle snake, I can tell that she have it in for that young woman she cannot hide the way she feels it shows in her face. Kenya is like the odd one on that show and it seems as if though she would do and say what ever to squeeze that young woman off the show, first of all she is not even married and she's always causing fiction between you nice ladies and looking at your husband. Porsche is the youngest one on that show and she's a breath of fresh air so please believe her when she told you that she did not say any such thing, it's coming from Kenya big mouth who is just looking out for her self and putting a wedge between 3 people friendship. You know when a person is lying and she's definitely on top of the list. Kenya is very jealous of Porsche and she needs to stop being such a bully and old hater.  Cynthia remember that she were the one so upset that Kandi invited Walter to her home and I guess she storm out stating that she did not have her security as if though Walter was going to harm her. I remember that she ask Walter to marry her and now he's the plague she needs to chill out and stop creating strife between you ladies I like you and all the other ladies so keep on entertaining us because I love the show. Kenya needs to learn how to get along with the whole staff or she should leave the show and stop being a spoiler.

I have grown to like you more this season...very classy!  I don't think you appeared jealous of Portia...nothing to be jealous of and I am a broke lady!  Not half as much money soooo....I am sure that wasn't the case...however I did not like Peter very much this season!   I am the type of person that is loyal to the bone...Kenya and Walter not working out was hard on her...she was flirting because she wasn't getting the attention that she desired from Walter and therefore she was making an attempt to get his attention some kind of way.  Crazy...no I don't think so...Wild...yeah...she has no children, no husband, and it seems a lot of negative people in her world...I would have like to see you hold her down a lil more...get mad with your husband when he goes back talking to the guys about something your friend told you in confidence about thinking Walter was gay....hold her down a lil more cause a breakup is tough enough....but I am happy to see you and Peter making strides on your marriage, and businesses...Do the damn thing Ms. Lady! oh and although I know you are to classy for this I would have liked to see you smack the hell out of Phaedra for lying in your face and then trying to change the subject...LOL

Cynthia, I would just like to say that You and Peter's home is just awesome.   My kind of Metropolitan home.   It definitely has everything and that New York style.   Love it, love it, love it.

When Andy asks if anyone missed Kim you were the only one who answered. But  girl you know Nene and Kim were party buddies. I mean those two knew each other before RHOA and had a lot of fun when  together. As you spoke Nene was tempted to say something but instead she watched you speak about Kim not wanting to be there.  Nene likes Kim and misses the fun times they had together and though she likes you...Nene will never let her hair done like she did with Kim. Plus, Kim did not have to sign a "Friend contract".

C'est La Vie.

Cynthia, given Kenya's history and behavior, why were you so quick to believe her when she said that you and Nene were gay?  I was shocked at your response, you also come across as jealous of Porsha.  Wow!

Love your style, you always bring it. Your husband ugh!!!

He needs to stay out of a woman's business, why the heck is he attacking this woman, every woman has called a trifling man names how does it affect his life. The worst thing is see to a man cursing a woman out that's an a@#

Thank Peter please! He was saying what everyone one at home was thinking. I don't feel he came off as a bully at all. He was just trying to reason with a crazy person who doesn't want to hear the truth. Kenya would rather stay in make believe land where she is still Miss USA, and Peter let he have a dose of reality. So please thank him! I am happy to see him hold you down, but when Kenya once again said "don't come for me unless I send for you" I wished you would have checked her.....she doesn't have a husband and probably will never get one with that mentality. Strip clubs or not, PETER is my favorite =)

Cynthia, I loved the way Peter stood up for Walter and telling it the way it is!!! I love the fact he got Kenya and told her to sit he butt (not his words) down! Great going Peter, Apollo, and Greg for telling the truth and putting Kenya in her place!

Cynthia, I really like you and Peter, but you should not gossip, telling crazy Kenya what Phaedra said about.  It really caused a rigt. I was so happy on the third reunion showm when Peter told Kenya to set her ars down!

I was surprised that your husband was the avoice of reason this season.  He got my vote when he said if the twirl queen made Porsha leave then they all should leave.  You should pay more attention to him, he sees things clearly this season.

Cynthia, I really like you and what you stand for.  The thing that bothers me about you is that you don't have faith in your judgements.  You knew Kenya wasn't wrapped tight and you stood on your convictions until you realized that NeNe did (or at least appeared to) like her and then you switched up.  When you stand on the side of wrong, that makes you just as wrong.  I am glad to see that you stayed neutral in the NeNe/Phaedra debate because things don't appear to be the way that NeNe made them appear to be (according to the latest from her sisters).

I just want to say that I hope Peter realizes why Kordell did not show up for the reunion show.  Porsha said she did not want him to come with her.  Her words on WWHL.  So, Peter Kordell would have been there to show support for his wife also.  I also think you are a very good person, Peter and a very loyal friend to all who consider you a friend.  Best wishes!!!!!!

Ms. Cynthia you were very quiet and reflective during the reunion show,  but your hair and dress spoke volumes and loudly, I loved it.  I have oftened wondered why you are on the show it seems so not for you,  but you made it work with the introduction of the Bailey agency and the high professional standards you insist upon.  Also, the way that man of yours told Miss Kenya all the secrets about herself to herself, was all you and your family had to say.  I know you have embraced her to a certaindegree, so maybe, you can get her to slow down.  But I fear it might be too late, I mean she crossed the line with Apollo and threatened his pregnant wife.  The hopes she had for herself and the show did not turn out like she wanted.  She learned she could not manipulate you or take over in regards your agency.  You were not having any of that.  I liked the way you handled that situation, and even the negative in regards to your agency and its growing pains is handled with professionalism and class.  I think Miss Kenya needs some rest in the country, with some antidepressants in her juice,  her behavior did not reflect what a woman of her age and accomplishments should act.  Even with you there to show her it just did not work.  I have never been a NeNe fan, but she made your girl look classy.  Talk to her and lets just make this past season, a hormonely imbalance, her biological clock of balance, something, please dont tell me whole fiasco with Walter, was deliberate,  Holler at your girl,  with love and Blessings, ciao bella

Cynthia darling I've loved you from the first moment you stepped on the show and all your career highlights before that. What drew me to you was your humility. You'd seen the world yet you just lead with your grace and beauty never taking away from the other ladies. A prime example was how you showed NeNe the ropes in NYC.

However the reason I'm writing is about Peter. Your mom & sister were right about him not being worthy of you. Throughout the spectacle of the wedding and his failed business attempts I admired how you stood by him. To quote Phedra "Can't knock a man with a hustle..." Your fans were all routing for you and your husband.

Peter's behavior towards Kenya was vile and uncalled for. Walter & Apollo are fully capable of defending themselves. There was no reason for him to be on a national stage attacking a woman as he did.

He proved a lot of negative stereotypes leveled at black men and in doing so is a disgrace to his race, his birth country, his adopted country, his family and himself. So let me say this in a way he understands "Peter bwoy yuh act like ah rahtid blood clot pussy hole fi go after uman character pon tv!"  Peter Thomas you owe Kenya, your wife and all the viewers an apology!

Well I guess I'm going to be the b#&*h here. Cynthia you have diarrhea of the mouth. Every time you open your mouth it is about spreading gossip. Girlfriend, in my neck of the woods you would be called a "narc." Someone who spreads gossip is never to be trusted.

You seem to be not as happy as you use to be. I dont feel it deals so much with the show i feel that it deals with your home life. Your eyes are not shining with laughter and joy as they use to, and your starting to drink a little to much and thats a sign of trying to drink away reality. Just a note if you feel something is not right in your relationship sit your partner down and tell him what you need. Now when you read this your probably going to say " give me a break she dont even know me" , but let me tell you eyes never lie and yours are saying something different. get your house in order or kick the issue out and find yourself again. Also stay true to you, i feel your losing the real you everyday.

Cynthia you to me, are the most beautiful of all the housewives franchises, you are also one of the most real, I love you and Pe-Tahh(don't know why but I feel like someone has said it that way before for laughs lol).

And I pray your husband to spend less time in the strip clubs, and spend more time with you and the word of God in the presence of God. And just less anger, but I'm sure he is a good man, I'm sure he means well. Take care love!

BTW being friends with NeNe and Kenya isn't really cool.  You just do that for camera time....kind of sad you can't be your own person, you always have to tag along.

 @housewifeforreal4 Peter is doing the exact same thing he did with his last business and it failed. There is no real partnership between Peter and Cynthia when it comes to money and she allows it. The very fact that he negotiates deals behind her back, it makes you wonder what else is he doing that she's unaware of.

 @realdealru2 Good.  I didn't like the show and it was clearly getting to Nene's head.  We'll see how secure she is on next season's housewives.  she'll probably be back to acting a fool, yelling and in everyone's face.

 @joyinbama I agree with you.  I don't know why she's on the show.  She's like Kyle Richards (Beverly Hills housewive) never stands up for her friends.  She's always stating that somethings not right, but never tells the person to their face that they shouldn't say that.

 @cbennett1

 You're so right I just got through writing her about the same thing, I made her aware that Kenya is a trouble maker that despise Porsche and she made that story up to put a wedge between their friendship' Kenya is a very unhappy woman that wants what they have and cannot get so the next best thing is to create mayhem and tell lies, I was shock when she confronted Porsche and then she told Nene about it and she told Nene to call Porsche.  Kenya is vey unhappy and would stop at nothing to create problems between the ladies and Porsche.  They all should be ashamed of themselves and I felt sorry for that young woman because t seems as if though Cynthia did not believe her .

 @cbennett1

 Yes, to my dissappointment, she (Cynthia) came off as being JEALOUS of Porsha.  She couldn't seem to hide it.  I really like Cynthia and was so HURT to see her like that.  That let me know it was more to the Not Wanting Her To Help With The Pageant" than met the eye.

 @reeno

 I agree, Kenya called it, she said that Peter likes to "stir the pot".  Peter needs to stay out of the women's business and allow them to work out what ever issues are going on. You would have thought that Peter was a Housewife too, he has so much to say and so much beef with one of the housewives. Peter defended Walter, but I don't believe that any of the men really bonded with him the way they claimed.  It was just a way to get at Kenya.  Peter needs to get his life and stay in his lane.  I think Peter has some control issues.

 @RHJunkie417 I don't feel Peter was a bully.  None of the women were holding Kenya accountable for everything she did and said.  The only 2 people who put kenya in her place was Peter and Phaedra.  Ms. Phaedra was on fire.  Everything that came out of Kenya's mouth at the Reunion was stupid.  She couldn't keep up. 

sheila.lopez.967
sheila.lopez.967

 @RHJunkie417

 My thoughts exactly, the truth is she's full of rage and just seems to always creates friction between the other ladies. She's a very envious and jealous person. She dislike Phaedra and Porsche, she looks at them with so much hate. She ticks me off when ever she acts as if though she is the brightest bulb  in the crowd.

 @TheS.R That should tell you something about their relationship. Doesn't seem to be so much interest in Cynthia, the classy, beautiful, composed, elegant woman that you all think she is. Cynthia was okay with Peter going to the strip club everyday. She said it. Cynthia is an introvert. she can not handle any kind of confrontation. She can dish it but she can't take it. You see how she responded to Porsha. There was no nene there to protect her.

 @wynessa  @reeno

 You might no care for Peter but he can see right through that witch Kenya who is not married and it seems as if though she hates life itself and is a very envious and jealous person. Walter did nothing wrong to that woman she's mad with him because she mention her age and marriage and he did not respond the way she wanted and it pissed her off. I don't blame Walter because marriage is sacred and it's not something that one does on a whim. Peter only responded when she start to spread rumors that Walter is gay and he shut her down with that hateful nonsense. A woman scorn.
