Cynthia Bailey took to her Bravo blog following the first part of the Season 5 Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion to discuss the evening. She didn't have a whole lot to say, not unlike her participation in Part 1.

After noting how gorgeous all of the women looked, Cynthia admitted, "I have to say that I was a little on the quiet side for Part 1 because I was not really involved in the issues at hand."

But she stands by her decision to keep to herself, explaining, "Any fool can talk, but not everyone can listen, receive, and process information. I try to choose my words carefully, and only say what I mean and mean what I say."

One thing she did want to comment on was the surprise guest appearance: Kenya's absurd fan.

"BTW: Kenya and her fan, over the top and hilarious. Had I known we could bring a prop, I might have sat holding an umbrella over my head the whole time to shade myself from all the shade that was being thrown! LOL!," Cynthia joked.

Are you surprised that Cynthia was so quiet during Part 1 of the reunion?
