Cynthia talks about her confrontation and admits that she overreacted in an interview with Bravo. She said: "In my opinion, the word 'b****' can be used in fun as a term of endearment or disrespectfully as an insult. It depends on the tone and context in which it is used and interpreted."

She explained: "How did Porsha and I go from having fun and kicking it to a heated confrontation when all I was attempting to do was try to prevent Kenya from kicking her friend Shamea off the boat? Was it wise to get caught in the line of fire to try to diffuse a bomb that was never intended for me? Looking back, probably not. Maybe I should have kept my big mouth shut, sat back with the other ladies, and watched the fireworks."
