But first, Cynthia weighed in on her talk with Kandi Burruss, “I enjoy talking to Kandi because she is level headed, rational, and doesn’t sensationalize things. I knew that Peter and I had just celebrated our five year anniversary, but did not think about the five year hump that marriages go through until Kandi brought it up.” Oh, the delusion. News flash Cynthia: your marriage suffers from a “hump” problem, allegedly, but not of the “five year” variety.
Cynthia concluded, “My conversation with her reminded me that no marriage is perfect, most have issues, and we were not alone in our struggles.”
I guess the friendship contract I assumed had been voided long ago is still in place after all! Perhaps the former and current Real Housewives of Atlanta stars have even added a truce addendum! Cynthia Bailey, who drafted the infamous document to solidify her bond with NeNe Leakes, has found her voice over the past two seasons, and when NeNe left the show, there was no love lost between the one-time besties. However, it seems that hell is starting to freeze over–is that a pig I see flying??–because the two ladies have been spotted together…and they are smiling (and blonde)!
NeNe shared the above-posted picture to her Instagram with the caption, “Super sexy in the big city @cynthiabailey10 #byebrazil #workinprogress.” NeNe has been in New York due to her Broadway stint in Chicago, and Cynthia isn’t the only one of the Neenster’s RHOA cast mates who wish her well. NeNe retweeted former Atlanta housewife Sheree Whitfield (who has already made waves this season), responding “Thank u boo!” to Sheree’s comment: “Proud of you @NeNeLeakes You are gonna kill it! #neneinchicago”
All aboard the S.S. Krayonce for Bravo’s version of the Titanic, with far less hearts going on and a lot more going off on others. Last night on Real Housewives Of Atlanta a 3 hour cruise went horribly wrong and some Housewives panicked under pressure. It was every Housewife for herself with only unlimited booze, bikinis, and some very extra ‘Friends’.
Before all that Kenya Moore decides to be neighborly by walking over to Chateau Sheree where Sheree Whitfield is sweeping the front porch. What type of so-called exclusive, upscale neighborhood has a highway running through it? Highway 666 judging by the neighbors!
Kenya marvels at the size of Chateau Sheree and tries to barge in, but can’t open the door. Did Sheree get She By SheVicted?! To distract her, Sheree demands, “Where my cookies at?!”
Sheree Whitfield and Kenya Moore may have gotten off on the wrong foot on the news season of Real Housewives of Atlanta, but Sheree says things are getting better. In her latest blog she shares her initial reaction to being invited to Kenya’s hair care launch and her first impressions of newbie Kim Fields.
On her invite from Kenya, “When I was invited to Kenya’s event, my initial thoughts were, “Oh hell to the no! This chick is uncouth and has zero class.” Nevertheless, I decided to be a bigger person by showing up and supporting her. I’m all about supporting women and their business endeavors, because so many women choose to do the opposite. For some reason women aren’t as supportive towards other women.”
For this season’s storyline on Real Housewives of Atlanta, Cynthia Bailey and Peter Thomas are going through a rough patch in their marriage – triggered by the “cheater” video that circulated to a few sites over the summer. On the last episode Cynthia and Peter decided they want to try to make their marriage work and in her newest blog she talks about that decision and more, including dishing on Kenya Moore’s big launch party.
On whether it was difficult to have the conversation with Peter she shared, “It was absolutely difficult to have a serious conservation with my husband regarding the fate of our marriage. Everyone has a breaking point, and at that time, I felt like I had reached mine. I wanted to keep an open mind and listen to Peter, however it was important to me to be heard and have my words be received. When I asked Peter if he is the kind of person who stays in a relationship even if it is no longer working, I needed to hear his truth. I know I am not that person. I don’t want to be a part of anything that is unhealthy and no longer serves my life purpose. I truly believe the only reason for being in a relationship/marriage is to be a better and happier person than you are alone. I know that all relationships go through their ups and downs, but there should be more good times than bad times. More light than darkness. After our conversation, my heart told me not to give up, and to try to work it out.”
Kenya says she and Madam CJ Walker have something in common: being self-made women. She says of Madam CJ, “she neither inherited her money nor married someone who was a millionaire. She was a woman who came from the cotton fields who promoted herself into the business of manufacturing hair goods. She built her own factory on her own ground. I too am self-made, often believing in myself when no one else did.”
The night before her return to the big stage, NeNe shared on Instagram, “The spotlight will be on me TOMORROW nite as I take this stage! You know life has a way of knocking you down but God believed in me when so many didn’t! No matter what you have been thru your dreams can come true! This is my second time on BROADWAY! #gettingbacktome #chicago #neneismamamorton”
NeNe will play Mama in Chicago through December 20, 2015. She previously said her services were requested through January, but she said no, “I couldn’t do it. When you do Broadway, you really cannot do anything else. You have to clean your schedule, and the moment that you clean your schedule, that is when everybody calls.” Check out pics of NeNe‘s first night in Chicago below.
After the grown-man boyfriend showerPorsha Williams threw boyfriend Duke Williams on last week’s Real Housewives of Atlanta, the writing was on the wall. This relationship was probably headed for the rocks. Duke and Porsha have indeed broken up since filming, but Porsha says it was mainly due to distance…and “some other things that will come out in the show.” What these “things” are is anybody’s guess!
When it comes to her breakup with Duke, Porsha says it’s all about the “fall back game.” “My fall back game is gonna be strong,” Porsha tells Bravo, saying she’s “fallen back on Duke a little bit.” If you’re not sure exactly what that means, Porsha adds the following clarifying statement: “So, we kinda broke up a little bit…” (Huh?)
