Cynthia Bailey let her messy side show where Kandi Burruss' fiance was concerned and that led to a blowout argument between Cynthia, Peter Thomas, Kandi, and Todd Tucker – which was further instigated by Cynthia's sister Malorie! I guess they share the gene for stirring up trouble!
In her Bravo blog Cynthia admits things got carried away and she apologizes for her behavior.
Cynthia begins by explaining that she feels everyone was involved in the drama and that the entire group "looks back on that night with embarrassment and regret." Has she seen WWHL? Pretty sure Kenya doesn't!
"I admit that it was a little 'messy boots' for me to tell the ladies about my conversation with Natalie about the whole Todd opportunist thing. In Natalie's defense, I don't remember if she ever said the word opportunist, but I felt like it was implied," Cynthia explains. "She actually had a lot of very nice things to say about Todd as well, but I guess the negative will always outweigh the positive. It's actually kind of funny, because this whole conversation started off pretty harmless."

"I envisioned Kandi handling this bit of news exactly the way that she handled it at the winery. She was not bothered, laughed it off, and pretty much owned her fabulousness with a 'girl, bye' attitude at the end of the day. High fives were slapped and that was that. Or so I thought. I really thought we had moved on, so I was a kind of surprised when Kandi brought it back up at Pillow Talk."
Cynthia reveals that it was not her intent to get in Kandi's face, so to speak, and she's again – sorry. "That was when I decided to try to talk to Kandi to make sure that she had the whole story. The good and the bad. Big mistake!"
"In hindsight, I guess I was too much in her personal space," Cynthia says. "It didn't feel like it to me at the time, but looking back at it all, I guess I was. We both talk with our hands, and I didn't realize at the time that I was using mine any more than she was using hers. I also did not feel that when Peter walked up and asked what was going on that he was necessarily aggressive. I do know that anytime a man is addressing a woman (and it’s not all fun and giggles), it never really looks right."
Finally, Cynthia says she really did not know Mallorie pushed Kandi until she saw the episode!
"I definitely didn't know until I saw it on tape that Mal pushed Kandi," Cynthia insists. "I actually didn't believe it until I saw the tape, because I just don't remember it happening. I thought Mal was trying to keep Peter and Todd from getting into it by pushing them apart. Mal did tell me that in that moment Todd pushed her, and she instinctually pushed him back. Then all hell broke loose from there."
Cynthia reminds us, "Just like the other incident, it all happened so quickly it was hard to know who pushed whom and when or why. We may never know exactly how it all started, I am just glad that it is over."
Finally, Cynthia discusses the tea during their spa day. "With these ladies it's always a matter of time before you bump heads with someone. So I guess it was me and Kandi's turn. It kind of sucks, because Kandi and I have always been cool with each other and have never really had an issue. Just like she said that she likes me, I also like her."
"So that said, I apologize and accept full responsibility for any part of wrong doing that I contributed to on that night. I apologize on behalf of Peter and my sister as well. I hope that Kandi and I are big enough women to eventually move past this foolishness. I guess you will have to keep watching to find out. Oh yes, when Kandi says that I wouldn't bust a grape, she was 100% correct. I do not and will not ever physically fight another woman."
