Cynthia Bailey

I (along with many other viewers) was confused by Cynthia Bailey bringing Peter Thomas on a couples vacation even though they were in the process of divorcing. The viewers got to experience a lot of vicarious awkwardness from the last couple Real Housewives of Atlanta episodes.

This could not be more true when Cynthia attempted to roast Peter for his birthday and Kenya Moore threw a “Divorce Party” for her and Phaedra Parks. Yes, I think the idea is a little weird, but it did seem like Kenya was acting from a place of kindness so it was so awkward when Phaedra pretended to look for ginger ale as an excuse to leave. Not only that, but she retreated into her old ways by name calling Kenya via text.


In her latest Bravo blog entry, Cynthia talked about that birthday roast for Peter. I was really hoping for more from that, considering that Phaedra and Porsha Williams love talking shit about Peter in the past, but it was Cynthia who really flopped when she got her chance to speak.

Cynthia said, “Kandi [Burruss] and Todd [Tucker] had the best jokes. Kenya, Porsha, and Phaedra were really funny as well.” She also said what we were all thinking during that episode: “Obviously, I was the only one that totally crashed and burned.”

She added, “The crazy thing is that I know so many funny things about Peter, but I just couldn’t think of any of them in that moment. Clearly, out of all of my talents, I will not be adding roaster to the list! So yes, I am officially out of the roasting business until further notice!”

Since Cynthia was one of the women that Kenya threw that divorce party for, I was definitely curious about her thoughts on Phaedra’s reaction. Cynthia said, “I can completely understand why Phaedra didn’t want a divorce party. I just can’t understand why she couldn’t tell Kenya how she felt. As ‘friends on the mend,’ they were in a good place to have that conversation. I didn’t want a divorce party either, especially since my husband was actually with us in Hawaii.” Yeah, that had to be uncomfortable for her.

Cynthia explained how it all ended up alright: “However, once I expressed to the ladies how I felt and knew that Kenya had good intentions, I just looked at it as a new beginnings/rebirth/next chapter party. It was a silly, funny party. It wasn’t that serious.”
