The Grand Plan

Cindy shares her thoughts on her birthday party, and why she told Kelly Sonja's plan.

By Cindy Barshop

As you saw, a lot of confrontation went on last night but it's really not worth my time.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New York City on Peacock and catch up on the Bravo app

Obviously, my tooth debacle didn't allow me to go out to lunch with Sonja after our visit to Vivienne Tam. It's understandable that I canceled plans on such a short notice because at the end of the day I had to do what is right for me. I would completely recognize any of my friend's situations if they had to cancel, especially when it came to going to a doctor/dentist.

If you don't want to be with your children on a beautiful holiday weekend during the day in the Hamptons then don't come or don't bring your children -- I want to be with my children. I wanted to be with my children.

The party was at my friend Richie Schaeffer's renowned Quogue Farm where we were able to have amazing food and drinks from Seasons of South Hampton as well as go horseback riding and four-wheeling -- sounds horrible right?

Next thought. . .

Unless I am toasting you there should be no reason why I am standing there waiting for you to walk in with your favorite drink. Being a good host means making sure that every single person at the party is catered to, not just one. That being said, you should never attack anyone, especially in front of their family and 85-year-old parents -- that's just NOT cool or MY style.

At the end of the day I stand up for what I believe is right for any child. . .therefore I don't care who's grand plan I'm stepping on. Obviously I was able to figure out Kelly's priority with her children quicker than her good friends that have known her for years. Or is it just that I care MORE about Kelly's feelings?
