Cynthia Bailey on RHOA

If Cynthia Bailey wants to celebrate bringing sexy back without NeNe Leakes and Porsha Williams around, I say, so be it. I definitely don’t blame her and I certainly don’t think she needs to defend herself. Nevertheless Cynthia took to her blog to explain her decision to not invite NeNe and Porsha to her party on this week’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Short and sweet: “I did not invite NeNe since we no longer were friends.”

Cynthia shared, “I chose not invite Porsha to my Ebony Magazine party since she spoke negatively about me on WWHL. I was under the impression we had always gotten along without any real issues. The first time I met Porsha was with NeNe at the home of her grandfather, Hosea Williams. I was excited to meet the granddaughter of such a legendary historical black leader. I was impressed by her strength and commitment to her grandfather’s legacy. I’m led to believe Porsha’s unkind remarks in her interview were directed toward me because I did not support her actions at the reunion.”


“In my opinion, Porsha could have made a better choice than resulting to physical violence. If I were in that situation, I would have demanded the props be removed and walked off set until they were. Once again, I will reiterate the reunion is an extremely provocative environment and all of the ladies clearly understand that we are not there to trade recipes. The reunion has always been a playground for the possibility of being taunted or verbally attacked. All of the ladies are expected to come prepared with a cool and intelligent plan of defense.” Intelligent? She’s met Porsha, right?

Cynthia, on her attitude about getting older and her choice of party outfit, “I was so honored to be chosen and featured by Ebony Magazine in their ‘Sexy at Any Age’ editorial spread. I have always been proud of my age, and although my knees ain’t what they used to be, I feel like I represent the 40s woman extremely well. I think getting older is a privilege that is not always granted to everyone, so I cherish every day and try to live my life to the fullest. As for my look at the party, I wanted to look sexy of course, since the focus of the feature celebrates being sexy at any age. I chose the suit as opposed to the expected tight little dress. I thought the suit was not only sexier, it was also a little more fashion forward and very classy.”

As we know, Apollo Nida came to Cynthia‘s party with his sights set on Kenya Moore. Well, that was nothing new, but this time he had a hidden agenda. He wants us to believe he felt the need to apologize for telling salacious lies about Kenya, but I do NOT believe for a second that he gives two sh-ts about hurting her. Apollo did it, IMHO, to stick it to Phaedra Parks one last time. On camera. Such a charmer, that one.

Cynthia chose not to bash Apollo in her blog; instead, she wished him well. “I was more disappointed with Apollo than shocked by this revelation. I know that after perpetuating these false accusations about Kenya for the last couple of years, there had to be some much needed peace by coming clean. Although I will never understand why he felt the need to assassinate Kenya’s character in the first place, I am relieved the truth is finally out and hope Kenya can forgive him and move on. I wish him well, and will keep him in my prayers.”
