    Cynthia is a regular contributor on Good Morning America these days. Seems like she shows up every week.

I think insecurity is a large determining factor, and that knows no "class".
    Oh, yes, that is true... the arrogance of superiority is hard to deal with....though not all people who inhabit the upper reaches - whatever that is, usually money, power, privilege - not all are automatically bad.

    What I mean about Nene is that she's learned some reserve, often checks her language and automatic put-downs now but didn't often do so previously; she's copied/learned that some reserve, some quiet, some charity is sometimes the better choice. Sometimes now she responds with facial expressions, not overt eye-rolls necessarily, but she is becoming nuanced rather that out-there.... the times when she's out-there, she's frequently doing it with a humorous twist and she's pretty good at it.

    The best part of the reunion was the facial expressions of Nene & Phaedra and Nenes laughter.

    Kenya looked certifiable twirling around the stage and talking to herself. I was a fan all season but I agree with the majority now - she is nuts. I still do not like Phaedra and that's a shame because she had been my favorite since she joined the cast. Nene - I love you too - she always cracks me up!

    Yes! She looked cray cray sitting up there whispering the lyrics of her song
    to herself. What? And the twirling sent me over the top. I couldn't stop laughing. Bless her heart.

    I don't want anybody to take this the wrong way, but Kenya reminded me of Prissy, in Gone With The Wind when she started soft-singing the lyrics to her song, when Prissy "lost it" when she had been sent to "fetch" the doctor because Miss Melanie was having her baby. Prissy slowly strolled back just singing and mumbling....mentally Gone With The Wind! And Kenya's reference to "twirl, twirl, twirl" is where Kenya's stupid song stems from, isn't it? Kenya claims it is based on Scarlett O'Hara, but I beg to differ!

    I like Cynthia, and I'm glad she's getting additional work. Peter is another story. Does he still have his bar? Is it doing well?

    I do. I wanted her to address the nasty comments that she would make about Porsha behind her back.
    Also the way she dragged Porsha for not wanting that meeting to take place in her home.

    I understood Pheadra's explanation of the butt dial situation. Her comments wasnt specifically about Cynthia, it could have been Joe Blow that and she would have displa yed the same irritation at that moment.

    I understood what Phaedra was saying as well. It wasn't a direct insult aimed at Cynthia personally. You know, I hate to say this, but I don't think Cynthia is all that bright. I'm not saying she's dumb as a rock or anything, but sometimes I wonder about her intellectual capacity.

    Most of the ladies seem to never be able to cop to anything they've done and admit they might be wrong. They all make excuses. It isn't just Kim. NeNe is one of the worst. She will never admit that something she's complaining about might be her perception and not reality. I don't ever hear her admit she might have been wrong. She can be funny, definitely has a comedic twist to her persona. I just think her ego is huge. I don't really detest her anymore the way I did, but all of the ladies have changed. It's funny. I used to like Phaedra (sort of) and couldn't stand NeNe. But now Phaedra and NeNe both have new personas, which they have created.
