Cynthia was drunk and belligerent and overreacting, taking out anger she has for other people, on Porsha. Porsha was, clearly, genuinely confused about why Cynthia blew up, as was everyone else. It was clear that what really set Cynthia off was Kandi's "best friend" comment because Cynthia has the reputation of snuggling up to whoever the "Queen" of RHOA is deemed to be. And Porsha did, in fact, let Cynthia walk away. However, the other ladies, Kenya included, ALL urged her to follow Cynthia and talk to her. Porsha went over there with good intentions and, once again, Cynthia popped off at the mouth for no reason. Should Porsha have walked away? Probably, because it wasn't worth it. Was Porsha some huge, hulking, dangerous dominatrix because she stood up when Cynthia was in her face? No. Y'all are really reaching with this knee thing. Porsha stood, obviously her leg was going to bend and go over the chair. She wasn't kneeing Cynthia in the face or anywhere else. Should she have stood over the chair? Probably not. Does her doing so justify Cynthia drop kicking her, despite being "so against violence"? Absolutely not.
Thanks for tagging me in that, Brandon. I'm looking forward to BH, but I'll miss my Queens, Brandi and Kim.
As for ATL, I just rematched the ending and if you'll notice, Cynthia CLEARLY grabs Porsha's hands while both women are still seated, which is what caused Porsha to stand. Cynthia initiated the physicality in that confrontation.
Girl, nobody was about to knee anybody, until Cynthia up and knee'd Porsha for no reason. Cynthia was a drunken fool.
Sidenote, Cynthia looks terrible in her new talking head. She usually has the best ones but wow her eyes are literally almost on the side of her forehead. Girl needs to stop, she looks like an entirely different person.
Also, what was that shade Cynthia tried to throw at Porsha, something about a fake chin? I didn't get that.
To me, it just looked like Porsha was getting up. I'm not saying she wasn't going to get in Cynthia's face or be aggressive, but it didn't appear at all, to me, like she was going to knee Cynthia, it looked like she was standing up over the chair.
Either way, Cynthia is the one who got physical here, not Porsha. When Porsha dragged Kenya, most fans of the show justified it by pointing out that Kenya had been all in Porsha's space with the scepter and the bullhorn, and y'all shouted from the mountaintops that "violence still isn't the answer". Now Porsha gets in Cynthia's face (after Cynthia was in hers, no less), and y'all are saying Cynthia was justified to physically attack her.
Come on, y'all. At least be consistent. You can't just bend the rules for the people you like.
Ok but Cynthia was calling people a bitch all day long and was having fun and then goes off because Porsha said bitch? And Porsha was genuinely surprised and obviously didn't mean it in the way Cynthia took it. I wouldn't have apologized either. Cynthia made a drunken fool of herself, and thank god from what I'm seeing, most people are team porsha. Absolute mess.
Also, I kept reading that Cynthia's violence was "ok" because Porsha was "all in her face", but what I saw was Cynthia waving her hands ALL in Porsha's face FIRST, then Porsha doing it back and Cynthia getting mad.
It ain't even that serious but Cynthia should lose her peach just like Porsha did. You can't play that game with one housewife and not the other.
I haven't seen last nights episode so I'll wait to comment but based on that clip, Cynthia did overreact a bit. These women call each other bitches all the time and I'm not saying that's right but Cynthia's aggression about it was a little out of nowhere and I probably would've been just as confused about it if I were Porsha.
LOL! I told y'all! I think what happened is that they slowed down the clip of her walking to make it dramatic and then never sped it back up which is why her voice sounds like that, but you KNOW somebody in post production caught that and let it slide to shade the !@#$%^&*] outta her! LOL!
