Cynthia Bailey’s been receiving lots of heat due to the fact the “True Housewives of Atlanta” Season 11 finale aired on Sunday, and she’s got answers for all your queries.
Extended story quick, NeNe Leakes was furious with Cynthia for not providing her the heads up that Kenya Moore would be attending her celebration to celebrate her new flavor collaboration with Seagram’s Escapes, Peach Bellini. But Cynthia claims she did not know Kenya would be coming, particularly due to the fact she turned down her invite.
“Had Kenya told me that she was unquestionably coming, I would’ve described it to NeNe,” Cynthia told TooFab on Tuesday. “Other than that, when Kandi stated she wasn’t coming, I did not consider it produced any sense calling NeNe and telling her she wasn’t coming.”
According to Kandi Burruss, who showed up to the celebration with Kenya, she did not know Kenya was coming till the incredibly final minute. Kenya then produced her swear not to inform any one.
But cameras caught Cynthia whispering to her boyfriend, Mike Hill, for the duration of the festivities, “I am supposed to act like I did not know Kenya was coming.” Then later, mics picked up Cynthia calling Kandi to make positive they had been “on the similar web page setting up how Kenya got there.” Fans had been outraged considering Cynthia lied, but she swears she did not and has explanations for each scenarios.
“I was dancing with Mike a lot all through the evening. I was whispering lots of issues to him that could not be G-rated,” Cynthia told us with a laugh. “So obtaining footage of me speaking to my man in his ear is not something that you would not see when Mike and I are collectively. We definitely cannot preserve our hands off each and every other.”
“With that stated, I will say that when I looked at that footage, I did not hear me say something,” she continued. “I study a caption of what I supposedly stated.”
Cynthia urged us to go back and peep the scene in query, so we did. “Consider about what you study and what you hear,” she stated. We did not hear her say something, and her face was not in the shot. All we saw was her lean into her man’s ear, and when she leaned back out, Mike nodded and replied, “Okay.”
“I never like to attempt to blame issues on editing,” Cynthia stated. “I would just like for folks to consider about what they study and what they heard.”
“By the time each of these ladies had been in the space collectively, my only purpose at that point was to preserve the peace,” Cynthia told us. “I had had many bellinis at that point. I never recall saying something like that since I did not have any explanation to, since to my information, I did not know Kenya was coming till she walked into the door. That is the God’s sincere truth, and if it looked differently, it just looked differently. That is all I can inform you.”
Fans also felt the telephone contact Cynthia produced to Kandi even though on their way to meet with NeNe right after the celebration was a bit sketchy. When Kandi very first answered the telephone, she warned, “I am mic’d. I am mic’d. I am mic’d,” but that did not preserve Cynthia from saying, “I just want to make positive we was on the similar web page setting up how Kenya got there.”
Cynthia explained to us, “I’ve been on the show for nine years, and just before that, I’d carried out tv prior to ‘Real Housewives.’ I am incredibly conscious of when I have a mic on. When we’re speaking to each and every other, when I contact a single of my castmates, no matter who it is, if they are mic’d, they are gonna say, ‘I’m mic’d.’ Generally, that is the courtesy we constantly give each and every other. If you say, ‘I’m mic’d,’ and I have anything that I never want you to hear, I will say, ‘Okay, I am going to text you.’ I am not gonna say something that I never want you to hear.”
“Why would I intentionally say something that was gonna make me appear like I was lying?” she continued. “What I stated to Kandi was anything I had no issue saying [on camera]. At that point, I did not even know that NeNe was that upset. So when I knew that we had been going [to talk to her], I stated to Kandi, ‘Listen, I just require you to personal your element in the predicament. You convinced Kenya to come, and I invited her.'”
“I never have any explanation to betray NeNe,” Cynthia added. “I never even know why the word ‘betray’ was even applied! When I consider of betrayal, I am considering I slept with her husband! But I invited my pals to my celebration. I’ve been practically nothing but loyal and supportive to this lady the complete season. Why in the final hour would I determine to piss her off?”
Cynthia stated she wished NeNe had kept her nasty comments about Kenya to herself, or at least selected an additional time/location to express them. She also felt NeNe’s joke about Kenya getting pregnant with a buffalo was “quite disgusting.”
As for Porsha Williams‘ infant girl, who was born March 22, Cynthia told us, “I have not met Pilar however, but I’ve noticed a image, and she’s certainly beautiful! I could not be happier for Porsha. This is her time. She’s got a terrific guy, she’s got a gorgeous infant. These are issues she’s been wanting for a lengthy time. Becoming a mom is a single of the most awesome issues that can come about to a lady. With all the jobs and all the enterprises that I have, my No. 1 priority and my most favored job is getting a mother.”
Cynthia also stated Pilar appears like “a mixture” of Porsha and her dad, Dennis McKinely.
“The True Housewives of Atlanta” 3-element reunion starts Sunday, April 7 at eight p.m. on Bravo.
