Cynthia Bailey was in tears as she and NeNe Leakes were arguing about their parenting techniques specifically with regards to “teen dating.”  The fight occurred on last night’s episode of “RHOA” when Cynthia decided to permit her 13-year-old daughter Noelle to have a date.  NeNe is strongly against her decision since Noelle is still too young.

Cynthia tweeted about their fight:


NeNe defended herself by posting a reply:

“Parenting doesn’t come with a handbook. We all do the best we can, and we do what works in our personal households.”

“On to Cynthia: I talk to Cynthia almost every day, in fact several times a day. Cynthia is very clear on where I stand about teenage dating (13-year-old dating to be exact)! This was not Cynthia’s first time hearing me say that. In fact I have said it many times to her. I think it’s too young, and I won’t be changing my opinion EVER! Not for Cynthia, not for you, not for anybody! I think it’s OK for friends to agree to disagree.”

“It’s also OK for friends to have various opinions with respect to child rearing. I think we are both great parents. I just think we have different ideas on what parenting is. If you don’t want to hear others’ opinions, don’t bring up the topic that you find to be sooo touchy!  Cynthia also said she would rather be picking up Arthur than picking up a grand baby. Were you trying to throw shade, Cynthia? Well it didn’t work, because I would rather my 13-year-old pick up a book than the telephone to plan their next date!”

“Ladies, next time know the difference between an opinion and judging! I wasn’t judging, because I am not a perfect parent, but I do my very best when it comes to my boys. I was just thinking about that outburst of a cry. It sure did come out of nowhere! Maybe Cynthia was dealing with something else? Ummhmm… When I judge you, you will know it! Now catch that shade!”

What can you say about NeNe’s comments?
