Cynthia Bailey Shares Her Reaction to Phaedra Parks Not Accepting Her Apology

Cynthia Bailey, star of “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” doesn’t understand how someone (we’re talking to you Phaedra) has the energy to stay mad forever. She took to her Bravo blog to discuss Phaedra’s unwillingness to move forward at dinner in the Philippines.

Apologies aren’t exactly falling out of the sky amongst these ladies,” Cynthia wrote. “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.”

But Phaedra was having none of it as she sipped her soup. Cynthia believes in talking about it and moving on.

“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.”

It’s not like Phaedra doesn’t have other people (we’re talking to you Apollo) to be mad at. It’s seems that somebody needs to watch Frozen again. The good news is Cynthia says after that cold moment in Manila, things eventually warmed up.

“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.”

You might be wondering how one gets through a 20 hour flight. Here’s how Cynthia handled it.

“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!”

    Stay mad forever? I’m thinking it’s more like Phaedra just doesn’t want to have anything to do with someone who has proven to be so untrustworthy. Cynthia’s right that Phaedra has more important things to be concerned with. That’s why she doesn’t have time to waste on the likes of Cynthia.

    I’m with Phaedra on that count.

    Why on earth would Cynthia be so dense as to think Phaedra owes her or owes Kenya THROUGH her an apology. She accused Phaedra, a married woman, unlike Kenya, of adultery. And she thinks Phaedra should apologize? Phaedra will never entertain this shallow, abused and confused woman anytime in any future. Cynthia…Forever Bye Felicia!

      She didn’t accuse anyone of adultery. She brought accusations to the group that Pha’s husband made. It was clearly a producer driven move. We know how these shows work, these girls are prompted to bring up controversial topics. Cynthia did it.

      • rasta

        I totally agree with you that question was a script promp, but producers PLEASE stop sending the town idiot with no acting skills to deliver the ratchet hatchets. She bumbles and stumbles through every confrontation WHEN bantering with an educated wordsmith like Phaedra. She MUST know she’s going to come out looking really stupid every time. She got her courage going in at Porsha who’s in reality a tricycle. I guess she has to do it though because thatthat’s the ONLY way she can earn what must or should be her last pay check on RHOA. I used to like Cynthia too when she first appeared with short doo, model’s bod, great clothes and no horrible starched blonde wigs and cranberry hats. Even her makeup artist has quit on her. And that Peter injecting what he thinks is charisma though ne can’t even talk properly cause he won’t or CAN’T afford teeth. He usually talks when eating to cover for mispronounced syllables. Wouldn’t even buy his own mother front teeth for that million dollar wedding.

          ?..And just why in hell would you put a hat on top of a wig!!!??? Shouldn’t that be Fashion Fauxpaa 101 ?

  • Shelly Jones

    I love Cynthia on this show. It’s sad that Pha has so many people fooled. When those skeletons come dancing out of that closet….Phaedra will really need Jesus to fix it!

    • Geminian

      I agree. I like Cynthia as well and the devil in disguise has many people fooled!

  • Geminian

    Phaedra aka the devil in disguise (because she ain’t no Christian she portrays to be) so far NEVER denied the accusation situation about the Mr. Chocolate affair! This is a serious accusation and if it wasn’t true, the first thing would be to deny it! Maybe Cynthia should of spoke about it to the devil without the other women being there, but the devil’s behaviour since the reveal, has shown her true colours! Cynthia shouldn’t of apologised, as she hasn’t got anything to apologise for! In this group of women (some grown, some with childish mentalities) most of the time, apologising doesn’t get them no where, so I don’t know why they waste their time.

    • Marsbars09

      I thought Fake denied the affair or said it was a lie?
      And yes, Cynthia should have apologized as that was a cruel thing to do. Also, Cynthia has no concrete proof of the affair.

      • Geminian

        Since Cynthia revealed the affair accusation, so far, I haven’t seen or heard of the devil never denying and saying it was a lie. And no, Cynthia shouldn’t of apologised because she hasn’t got nothing to apologise for. Maybe Cynthia should of spoken to the devil without the rest of the women there, but it wasn’t cruel of her to do. Remember, Cynthia never said the accusation was true with concrete proof. She said her husband peter told her, what Apollo told him and Apollo showed his proof.

        • Marsbars09

          Cynthia never said the accusation was true with concrete proof. She said her husband Peter told her, what Apollo told him and Apollo showed his proof.
          You said it yourself, G. Cynthia did not have concrete proof of the affair, therefore should not have said a damn thing. But I do agree Cynthia should have taken Fake aside and told her of the accusation privately.

          • Geminian

            Okay, so Cynthia doesn’t have concrete proof herself, never accused the person in question and only passing on, on what was said and told, she shouldn’t have the right to say anything? But only in private?

  • Marsbars09

    Cynthia needs to STFU. She’s nothing but a tired, scared, puppet that has to have someone control what she says and does. What a pitiful way to live life.

      Spot On!!!

  • MidwestMiddie

    In the photo above, Cynthia looks more like a Drag Queen than a model.
    Someone, please, give her a MIRROR!!!

    • Trippinhhard

      She wears too many hats and that blonde hair is not for every complexion.. I know plenty women of color with light brown natural hair and bleached blonde. Cynthia face lift and butt injection is too much ( I noticed it in her first pair of pants) Peter the pimp is her mirror and money manager.

  • beckywebb

    Phaedra can’t accept nor give an apology? Sounds like forgiveness isn’t in her religion which is…

    • Trippinhhard

      Religious ppl are some of the worst Christians… Please don’t forget about the older women upfront, acting like MARY, when 5 out of 10 sleeping with the preacher, pastor, bishop, teacher or assist pastor or deacons in the church. Instead of talking trash about the young women n church, they should be mentoring them. I use to look at them and say, God bless these old hell cats… They weren’t always saved. OT: my mother would stand before the church of approx 400 ppl and tell her true story, her words were I did what I had to do after I left my first husband..
      No shame was in her game, I would as a teenager be somewhat embarrassed, but I learned how to be truthful with JESUS, he knows the truth, and the hell with ppl. They didn’t educate or clothes my baby and she was not going to ask him for a penny…in my older age I wish I was more open with my feelings, instead of keeping them to myself. We are all sinners, none no better than the other, only difference is my sin isn’t yours and yours aren’t mine…
      All the ATL HWS need to learn to sincerely apologize when wrong and the other need to accept it.. If is not an apology… Kendra caused enough BS with Apollo and FHEDRA. I don’t like the three of them at all… What is Kendra’s storyline, BS again. CLAUDIA I liked at the start, but she stuck on dumb ass Porsha n being disgusting… Um Nene did apologize to her, what does she wants, blood. Awww the reunion will be epic and boring….IMO

  • Trippinhhard

    Cynthia needs to STFU, her husband is the worse user there is.. Cynthia should mind her own business, because she the money maker in that family.. Peter is a pump, with his rotten peach.. The Jean girl act isn’t working, and stop wearing all those ugly hats and go get some of that extra ass off your butt… LOL
