Folks were a bit taken back by the overly obvious shade that Kenya threw at Cynthia during this week’s episode of “Real Housewives of Atlanta”. Eyebrows weren’t raised because people thought Kenya was above being a filthy shade-thrower, but because the ladies had already seemed to have moved past their Jet Magazine drama as well as the fact that Kenya’s shameless dig came only one day after Cynthia’s fairytale vow renewal. Many felt that Kenya could’ve at least given her time to come down off the high of her romantic ceremony before she dug in her blood-thirtsty fangs. In a recent interview with Sister 2 Sister, Cynthia openly discussed how she felt about Kenya’s Anguilla antics and as well as her thoughts on her over-the-top co-star.
On Kenya’s low-key book stab:
“Kenya gave me the book to be mean-spirited and I think that’s just unfortunate,” Cynthia told Sister 2 Sister. We’re sitting up there having a beautiful lunch. All of this was put together because of Peter [Thomas] and I. I thought it was inappropriate.”
On how she responds to Kenya’s tactless antics:
“I just feel sorry for her in a way. She’s not really all that bad, but she just kinda… I don’t know. My whole thing is: If she’s nice to me. I’m nice to her,”
“I try not to pay Kenya too much attention. Her issues have nothing to do with me. I try to take the high road.”
On why she chooses to take the high road:
“It’s never easy when you’re on reality TV and you try to be the bigger person. It translates that you’re weak.”
“My daughter is 13 now. I would never want her to see me doing anything, cursing and calling people out their name. I can’t say I won’t do it. I just don’t want to do it on TV.”
In case you missed the latest episode, during lunch in front of everyone, Kenya presented Cynthia with Vanessa Williams’s autographed memoir in an effort to sort of get at her for not remembering that Vanessa was the first Black Miss America claiming that she needs to “know her history”.
Kenya should really consider having a seat. It’s great to see that Cynthia is refraining from indulging in the drama.
What do you think of Cynthia’s reaction Kenya’s undeniable shade?
