Cynthia Bailey has been called out by RHOA fans and even the other housewives because plenty of folks feel she stirred the pot when she brought up the Mr. Chocolate rumors during a housewives outing, but apparently Cynthia has no regrets and she feels it was the only fair thing to do.
She writes in her Bravo blog:
Bravotv.com: Were you surprised by Kenya’s emotional reaction to the Chocolate accusations?
Cynthia Bailey: Of course I was not surprised. I think she responded the way anyone would after having their character publicly assassinated for two years over similar accusations. Had Phaedra marked my life by broadcasting a worldwide whore campaign with no real facts (at least not from a credible source) without an apology (even after her clean man came clean), I would have been quite emotional as well. I passed this information along to Kenya, because I was naturally sympathetic to the hurt and pain she must have gone through as a result of these vicious claims. I thought that is was only fair that Kenya knew her accuser’s character was now being called into question. Ironically by the same source.
Bravotv.com: Did Phaedra’s reaction shock you?
CB: Yes it was very shocking to watch her stand up and lift her purse in a threatening way. Had the shoe been on the other foot (or in this case the purse in the other hand), Team Double Standard would have claimed that Phaedra was provoked, attacked, and of course let’s not forget blindsided.
…My intentions were to make Phaedra aware of what her husband told Peter, and it was not done with any judgment or malice. It has been pretty clear from Phaedra’s own mouth that she is over Apollo. Therefore, I do not regret telling her amongst our friends (that’s how we typically share information) and was actually surprised by her reaction. Is this the same lady that told Kandi that she would light up her husband with a 357 and use her own services to embalm him?
