I was actually more interested in power drinking than watching or recapping this week’s Real Housewives of Atlanta episode in the Philippines. I think I still have it on my DVR, I’ll have to rewatch. Likewise it seems the Real Housewives of Atlanta themselves are more interested in power drinking than turning in a blog. Cynthia is the only good girl of the bunch this week. Nene is doing some of her Bravo foolishness by not blogging on the Bravo site, and now instead off pretending she is writing her own blog on her website, she’s decided just to toss her ghostwriter and just let whoever sends in a recap to her do it. She says to start the blog with something like, “Since Nene is not talking anymore…” Because she is having some sort of tantrum.
Perhaps she, too, simply got fed up with the refusal of an angry mob of commenters to embrace the existence of Progressive Judaism and consider other salient facts in a well thought out post she had written. At any rate, I considered sending Nene my recap in Hebrew, it did very well in the ratings.
But let’s take a look at Cynthia’s contribution of the week.
Bravotv.com: How did you get through that long flight to Manila?
Cynthia Bailey: I watched four movies, had breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner twice, read five magazines, slept for five hours, and talked Kandi’s ear off whenever she was awake. Oh yeah, I’m pretty sure I drank a bottle of wine as well. And just when I thought that I couldn’t take it anymore, we still had nine hours left to go!
I’ve had that moment of just wanting to get off the plane on long flights. That PANIC of I NEED TO GET THE FUCK OFF THIS PLANE! I convinced myself I could make it, and if I needed to I could take a Xanax which I triple checked my handbag for and touched the white lid for comfort. That did the trick. Which was great because when I got home I realized I had not actually packed my Xanax, that white cap was for a tube of that stuff you take before getting on planes to boost your immunity..
Bravotv.com: Were you surprised Phaedra seemed unwilling to move forward with you?
CB: Apologies aren’t exactly falling out of the sky amongst these ladies. You probably have a better chance of winning the lottery than getting an apology from one of them. So when someone offers an apology in hopes of moving on, it is usually considered to be a positive thing. So why not address the issue, have the conversation, apologize if it is necessary, and move on? Who has the energy to stay mad at someone forever? Not me, I am moving on regardless.
I do. I have the energy to stay mad forever. I don’t see the point of these people trying to get the idiots who treat them bad to make up with them. Why? Why would you want any sort of interaction with someone who assaults you verbally or physically? It’s okay to “stay mad” or just move on.
Bravotv.com: Did you feel like the vibe changed for the better after everyone talked through their issues at dinner?
CB: Yes I did. We had an amazing time in the Philippines. It was one of my favorite cast trips, outside of Anguilla when Peter and I renewed our marriage vows.
I’m going to need to see more reasons to go to the Philippines before braving that many hours in the air at once. Would you like to go to the Philippines?
