Cynthia Reacts To Kenya Bending It Over On Peter: ‘The Only Booty That Shook Peter That Night Was Mine!’
Though no one had to guess what Phaedra thought about Kenya pushing up on her hubby while in Anguilla — remember, “don’t put your paws on Apollo”? — everybody was wondering what the wife of the other man who Kenya seemed all too willing to bust it open for was thinking about her behavior.
Contrary to the look of enjoyment that appears to be on Peter Thomas’s face while sandwiched between his wife and Kenya’s booties, he was quick to respond during the airing of this suspect episode Sunday night, saying that he was not down with the foreign booty clapping. Surprisingly, Cynthia seems to be more down with Kenya’s behavior than her own husband, which is even more interesting considering the scuffle these two had at the Bailey Agency on episode 1. On her Bravo blog, Cynthia wrote:
“I was not really bothered by Kenya dancing with Peter. We were all dancing and having a good time. Yes, the little “bend over booty shake part” was a little extra, but overall I thought it was pretty harmless. I am a really secure woman, and the only booty that shook Peter that night was mine!”
I’m trying to figure out how rubbing your butt on someone else’s husband is less inappropriate than pushing someone in the pool, but that’s precisely what Cynthia is saying. She commented on Kenya’s island interactions with Apollo, writing:
I’m with Phaedra on this one. The “let’s throw other people’s husbands and wives in the pool game” is a no-no. As married folks, there have to be some boundaries that need to be respected. Also I can’t say I am a fan of the “who would swing with whose spouse” game either.
Porsha, who we already know is no fan of Kenya’s, also spoke on the desperate wanna-be somebody’s housewife’s behavior, writing on her own Bravo blog:
I was speechless seeing the former Miss USA dropping it on another husband and propositioning a married man for sperm. *Have several seats.* Gross!
And as far as Phaedra’s reaction to Kenya pushing Apollo in the pool, Porsha said:
I would have done it a little differently. I just feel that my reaction to another woman pushing my man would have been to kindly shove her in the lovely pool as a return favor instead of allowing my husband to return the playful gesture. Boom! I simply feel it was in bad taste as she said, and for me watching that again on TV, I completely see why Ms. Parks felt disrespected. However, I have to give Ms. Parks credit for shutting down the indecent proposal offered by Kenya, asking whether she and a friend could have a go at her husband. Side Bar: It’s funny who thinks they’re a great role model.
Here’s a refresher on the Anguilla booty popping, if you need it. Which act do you think was more inappropriate, Kenya pushing Apollo in the pool or dancing up on Peter?
Did you know that having a big booty can be beneficial for your health? No, we’re not suggesting that you go out and get butt implants. We’re talking about naturally big assets or the pear shape figure as some might call it. In other words, it’s about those women who may be fortunate enough to genetically store their junk in their trunk. Studies have shown that women who have a naturally large buttocks and thicker thighs will benefit from more than just having a beautiful figure. There are reports that also say that many health benefits come with it. Here are some healthy reasons why you should embrace your naturally large booty:
Protection Against Type 2 Diabetes
A study from Harvard Medical School has suggested that women with larger backsides and a smaller stomach have less risk of developing type 2 diabetes. This is because the type of fat that is stored in a woman’s behind has a type of hormone that improves weight loss in other areas of the body. It also helps the body to make better use of its insulin. Unfortunately, this does not include women who have a large stomach AND a large booty though. Sorry ladies…
Less risk of heart Disease
Women with a pear shape figure are also less likely to develop heart disease, as opposed to women with an apple shape who store weight around their stomach. According to the same study done at Harvard Medical School, the reason for this is not because of the amount of fat in these areas, but rather because the type of fat stored in the stomach area differs from the type of fat stored in the buttocks. In other words, there are good fats and there are bad fats. The good fats have hormones that improve the body’s health, and the bad fats can clog up your arteries.
The line for this particular train is crowding the platform, thousands of females waiting to board with ticket and camera in hand. You know what I’m referring to, yes? The Great Thirst Trap Train. You’ve seen them: the self-shot camera pics of females everywhere from as young as 14 to only God knows how old seated not-so-comfortably on the edge of the bathroom sink, a trick used to make their rear end look even a fraction of a cheek larger. Or how about the back shot photos taken in elongated mirrors, their bodies contorted to get the exact angle at which their hips, booty and legs look most poppin’?
Throw in an outfit made of nothing but bra and panties (or now more frequently, no clothes at all) and photo captions/song lyrics like, “Body like heaven,” and you’ve got the perfect example of a tried and true thirst trap. A thirst trap is a photograph, status, tweet or the like that aims to entice men and result in compliments galore. I’ve found that it’s a sexually-motivated social networking tactic that attention-starved young ladies use to boost their self-esteem. Then, once men begin to respond sexually to your photos, they are deemed the “thirsty” ones, “pressed” or overly eager.
Let’s take a step further into this craziness, shall we? I’ve seen girls post statuses (under the guise of “Facebook After Dark”… REALLY?) about how they “like to ride it backwards.” Then, they follow the subsequent drive-by of likes and downright illicit sexual questions posed by horny young men with LOLs, <3s and smiley faces. But if the same young men begin to blow up their inbox, they are now considered “thirsty” and need to chill. And while some men take disrespect to a whole other level – which is NOT okay any way you slice it – this whole phenomenon still blows my ever-loving mind sometimes. Where do we draw a line for ourselves as women? Especially since I’ve seen all sorts of casually sexual behavior stem from these kinds of interactions.
With the growing number of x-rated photos (and videos) girls as young as 14 and 15 are tweeting, posting on Facebook and Instagraming – I’m wondering where (if anyplace) we’ll start setting boundaries for ourselves? Are we going to keep pushing the envelope for the thrill of seeing that little red Facebook notification seconds after we post a bra-busting photo?
I’ve gone weeks with less than five Facebook notifications, informing me that some guy has ‘liked’ my photo. When I was but a wee college freshman it used to bug me because I saw all the “sexier” girls getting so much attention. My self-esteem was outwardly validated then, so I would wear a shorter skirt and arch my back like an alley cat. That got old really quickly when I realized the kind of attention I was drawing. And not all attention is good attention. Forget what you’ve heard. Learning how to be comfortable in my own skin (and a full set of clothing) gave me confidence, so no matter how many Instagram/Facebook likes I may or may not get, baby I’m good. And honestly, a confident woman in a jumpsuit in her wall photo can be more attractive than a broken woman in a brassiere any day of the week.
There is room to love your body without advertising your goodies. And when you really think about it, why would you want to give away full view of your “assets” to a bunch of men who’ve done nothing to deserve even a peek, let alone the full Maxim spread (and I do mean “spread”) that so many females plaster across the Internet?
Your worth isn’t wrapped up in social networking notifications. It’s in how you view, carry and love yourself. We each set the tone for how we are ultimately viewed and treated both on and offline. So let’s button one more button and think twice about our destination before paying our fare to board The Great Thirst Trap Train.La Truly is a late-blooming Aries whose writing is powered by a lifetime of anecdotal proof that awkward can transform to awesome and fear can cast its crown before courage.

There’s been buzz around Culo for a little bit now, but the 248-page coffee table book about women’s backsides just became available for purchase last week.
The collaboration between Sean “Diddy” Combs, Interscope Geffen A&M Chairman Jimmy Iovine, and fashion photographer Raphael Mazzucco is supposed to be a celebration of the booty as the “epicenter of female sexuality, desire, and empowerment,” but marketing behind the book makes it look like an upscale version of Maxim—particularly the preview video featuring suspect lyrics from rapper Pitbull.
Executed differently, Culo might have stood a chance underneath the overarching cloud of female objectification, but I have a feeling this effort is going to get passed over as poorly packaged sexist machismo no matter how tasteful the images are–particularly in light of the lengths people will go to get the booty. I also couldn’t help but notice a lack of brown derrieres in the promo, although that could be a good thing in this instance.
Check out the clip and tell us your thoughts. Is Culo something you’d have on your coffee table?
