Last night, Cynthia Bailey pretty much told the world that she believed NeNe Leakes was a bad friend to her, and she doesn’t feel that they can ever rekindle their friendship at this point. Apparently Cynthia says it was hard to get past NeNe calling her husband Peter Thomas a b*tch, but she was even more upset that NeNe appeared on “Watch What Happens Live” and subliminally suggested that Cynthia be fired from RHOA.
NeNe is clapping back of course and last night she took to her Instagram account to put her former bff on full blast. She started off by writing a lengthy open letter to Cynthia:
AS HOPEFUL AS I WAS 4 US 2 BE LIFE FRIENDS I’AM NOT SURPRISED OUR FRIENDSHIP HAS ENDED & IT TRULY SADDEN ME! REALITY FRIENDSHIPS NEVER LAST ANYWAY SO HOW FOOLISH WAS I TO THINK I HAD MADE SOMETHING SPECIAL! IT’S AMAZING WHAT PEOPLE R WILLING 2 DO 4 THE LOVE OF MONEY, RELEVANCY & 2 STAY ON TV.

NeNe then posted text message conversations she had with Cynthia too. In the following message, Cynthia texted NeNe after the Mexico trip was filmed and it appears they were discussing how to film an upcoming scene:
That text pretty much confirms that this show has become pretty scripted, despite being a reality show.
In another text message posted by NeNe, Cynthia assures the reality star that no one can replace her as the queen of RHOA:
NeNe has since deleted the screenshots. It appears this rift between NeNe and Cynthia is about to get very ugly.
Yasss! Put her on blast NeNe! She’s always been two faced anyway!
It is weird to me that Cynthia and NeNe had already made up after she called Peter a b, and Cynthia didn’t get mad about the situation until the episode aired. Like why now? We all saw NeNe apologize and them make up. It’s just really sketchy to me and now it’s hard for me to feel sorry for Cynthia.
You’re on the wrong team Cynthia. As you can see, Marlo didn’t show up to the reunion. If Kenya is the new queen, why couldn’t she get Marlo on the reunion? Don’t be surprised y’all when they confirm Cynthia will not be back next season.
“You’re on the wrong team Cynthia. As you can see, Marlo didn’t show up to the reunion. If Kenya is the new queen, why couldn’t she get Marlo on the reunion?” <<< Bingo. That's because Kenya isn't a queen, she's a puppet. And that's a huge difference. Kenya does as she is told by the producers and NeNe will tell the producers to shove it. She damn near put Andy in his place a few times last night too. I don't doubt she told the producers not to invite Marlo or she would quit the show.
I thought about that too. Like if Kenya is the queen, why wasn’t she able to get Marlo there? LOL.
Cynthia is such a phony. She has always stirred the pot and hid her hands since she’s been on the show. Kandi can attest to that better than anyone else. But we’re supposed to feel sorry for her now? I don’t think so.
So now RHOA is scripted too. Ugh. Smh.
Lawd these two are really acting like they are in high school. For one thing, Cynthia should not have gotten dramatic all over again if NeNe and Gregg already apologized. You’re going out on trips with NeNe and hanging out after the the whole b-tch thing but now you’re mad because Twitter said you were weak. How does that work? She doesn’t have a mind of her own and now she’s trying to link up with Kenya when Kenya didn’t even respect her enough not to put that bullhorn in her ear. Cynthia needs to exit the show. She does not have a backbone and it’s getting old.
NeNe won’t be happy until she gets Cynthia fired. Not that I would mind that though.
Oh boy. They are about to gang up on Cynthia now. I could see Kandi and Phaedra looking at her like they were over her when she was talking about Porsha. Lines have beeb drawn in the sand and only having Kenya on your side won’t end well for Cynthia.
If NeNe doesn’t get fired for this, I’m going to have to admit she’s a boss and Kenya isn’t the new queen of RHOA after all because she basically called out the producers.
I didn’t watch rhoa last night but I seen the clip of Cynthia and Nene. First Nene did seem a bit insensitive but Cynthia is a weak pathetic woman. If she has been feeling like she said about their friendship. Why is she just saying something now why can’t a 40 year woman express this to someone who is suppose to be a friend. I really don’t have sympathy for Cynthia she is either fake or weak.
Cynthia is a weak woman period. Everyone on the show can stand up for themselves except her. So why is she even on there? She’s also known how Nene was since day one. But she dealt with Nene because she knew by doing so she would have a safe spot on the show. Now she wants to team up with Kenya but Kenya cannot save her. She doesn’t deserve any sympathy. She needs to be replaced. They can keep everyone else.
Cynthia is really trying to be the victim right now. I guess she got her plan from Kenya. I’m not buying it though.
Cynthia is just as nasty as NeNe, she just hides it better and lets Peter do most of her dirty work.
Basically, according to the screenshots, Cynthia let a bunch of people she doesn’t know (twitter etc.) decide the fate of her friendship with NeNe. I would side-eye Cynthia but I’m too over it to do so. Anytime you let a bunch of strangers who don’t really care about you influence your life, you’ve already lost. If Bravo decides to keep Cynthia next season and use this feud as her storyline I won’t be watching. Too predictable and too exhausting.
All of the things that set RHOA apart from the other housewives shows are quickly dissipating and this show is becoming a joke.
Very fake of Cynthia.
It’s obvious NeNe is hurt. She’s like me. She’s not going to let you see she’s hurt or cry like Cynthia always does, but she wouldn’t be doing all this if she wasn’t hurt too. it’s sad what Bravo has these women doing to each other.
Bravo has created a hostile work environment for all of these ladies. They make them put on ball gowns just so they can sit on a couch and scream the harshest things at one another and they call it entrainment. And then to make them get even more nasty, they tell them they aren’t sure if they will bring them all back. They only do it so these women will claw each other’s eyes out in an attempt to get an offer to return next season. It’s really disgusting and we all need to boycott Bravo. But that won’t happen though. Smh.
Cynthia is too much of a flip flopper for me. On the reunion she said Porsha really didn’t need to get so mad because the scepter was not a big deal, but she went on WWHL and said that Kenya was wrong for putting the scepter in Porsha’s face. Which one is it Cynthia? I love Kenya, I just hope she’s smart enough not to trust Cynthia’s fake a-s.
OMG I agree! I don’t want Kenya to trust her either! Cynthia is not to be trusted!
O Cynthia i like you so much but you gotta get a back bone. Last night you were saying how Nene never Respected you in the relationship, but yet you continued to be her friend.(how does that work?)If you were turly feeling that way you should have spoken to her then, thats what friends do. Ur a grown women. U guys made up, u guys acceped Nene’s APOLOGY and moved on. HINT thats what friends do, but you let others get the best of you, you really do what you know best ” when the sh*t hits the fan U RUN”. kenya is going to be UR down FALL…. I think you REALLY LOST A TRULY GOOD FRIEND
Cynthia isn’t fooling me. She still doesn’t have a backbone.
I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but I agree with NeNe.
I don’t feel sorry for Cynthia at all. She was never NeNe’s friend, she just used NeNe to stay on the show for as long as possible. And now that her spot is in trouble, she’s switching teams. She’s weak.
NeNe isn’t innocent, but at least you always know where you stand with her. You can’t say the same thing about Cynthia.
If NeNe wasn’t so hated this season, we wouldn’t even be having this conversation. Cynthia knows what she’s doing and she’s shady as hell.
Grown a$$ women whining cause her friend is being mean…LOL….IN THE REAL WORLD $HIT HAPPENS…GET OVER IT & URSELF!!!
Cynthia is so boring
Now all of them need to come back next season because everyone has something crazy going on right now. Well played Bravo.
Cynthia just thinks this will be her storyline for next season. Girl bye.
The choice candidate is Cynthia. Seems as if there’s a decision by the RHOA Fans. I am surprised so many ppl question Cynthia. Our reality shows have so much chaos. And the last thing we can all agree on is she’s not a overt trouble maker. So are you swapping Cynthia for NeNe X’s 3? That would be mixture of MOAB WIVES and STREET WIVES. What do you want ppl?
That’s good for Cynthia!
From the looks of it this season, Nene is so full of it. I use to like her cause she was funny, but now her behavior is disgusting. She acts like she’s in highschool with this whole If your my friend you can’t be Kenya’s friend, if you are our friendship is over attitude. Its childish. Maybe she use to be a good friend to Cynthia, but not this season. Cynthia probably felt her relationship with Nene was one sided. All Cynthia wanted was respect from nene. I kind of blame Cynthia for letting Nene treat her like that because she never stood up for herself. Watching the show may have opened old wounds for Cynthia and she probably reflected on the friendship and said it wasn’t worth it. Anyways, its a reality tv show, We will never know what really goes on behind the scenes unless we’re there
nene may be very blunt and kinda judgemental but she always stand her ground.cynthia acts as if this is some new found behavior for nene/and i feel like she dragged out the whole ordeal with nene calling peter a b-tch only to secure her place on the show another season,lets be real, cynthia is about as exciting as a wooden log.she needs this storyline.but she picked the wrong person, nene said her piece on this situation and will definitely be paying cynthia attention in dust.
