Cynthia has been considered NeNe's "lapdog" since she arrived season three but perhaps she finally decided that wasn't kosher. Even NeNe herself in her blog entry noted, "I had carried you on my back!"
NeNe saw Cynthia's critique as a betrayal of their friendship. She said this could have been straightened out behind the scenes, not in front of the cameras. "It’s always the ones that are the closet to you that will turn on you!" NeNe wrote.
