Bonding, Bygones, and Bugs
Greetings everyone! I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas with your family and loved ones. I loved that this episode was featured on the heels of the holidays. This is a time to forgive and forget, love and be loved, and let bygones be bygones.
I adore Cynthia for many reasons. She is a genuine person and a loving mother. When I saw her tear up over the perceived criticism that NeNe expressed, I knew she was really hurting. I love that she has an honest relationship with her daughter and how close they are. Cynthia loves Noelle more than herself and doesn’t want to fail her. I became emotional because that is the type of relationship I longed for with my own absentee mother, whose behavior was often abusive toward me. One never knows why God puts someone in your life. What I appreciate more than anything is that as women, we may argue sometimes but we can also support each other in our time of need. We often want the world to think we are strong and everything is perfect, when the reality is sometimes we are hurting and need a shoulder to cry on or just compassion or empathy. Having said that, even though Porsha and I don’t have a lot in common, we were able to put aside our differences for the time being to support Cynthia and one another. BYGONES
Conversely, I have never seen any genuine emotion from Phaedra -- no tears, no anger, no pain… even when her child was born she’s never exhibited any vulnerability whatsoever. I’ve only seen her make snide behind-the-back remarks and a slew of hateful lies... All reasons why it’s easy to say she is fake. NeNe felt I should speak to her and I agreed. When I tried to have a productive conversation and make amends with Phaedra in order to move past our tumultuous and contemptuous past, she behaved in her typical passive aggressive manner. Let’s be crystal, I don’t need her friendship. I’m not sorry I did it either. These moments show you who someone really is and you just have to believe it when they do. Done.
I’m a prankster and I love to laugh and have fun. I lived for Cynthia screaming when she thought I threw the flying roach on her! I crack myself up! I lived for the cut to NeNe sipping her cocktail unfazed. I also loved cracking jokes about NeNe at the drag show… they are just jokes people… I’m here all night.
