Cynthia Bailey took center stage on Sunday's edition of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, as the model was admittedly "a nervous hot mess" in organizing a beauty pageant, Miss Renaissance, for which she received hysterical advice from her co-star, the great NeNe Leakes.

Cynthia asked NeNe -- back in town after returning from Los Angeles where she tapes NBC's The New Normal -- if she felt she should involve co-star Kenya Moore in the event as a judge, after the two had an acrimonious time working together on a previous project.

"Are you going to let her be a judge?" NeNe said, rolling her eyes.

"She was Miss USA, it's a pageant," Cynthia explained, but NeNe wasn't having any of it.

"I don't give a damn if she was Miss Boo Boo! The whole point is, she act a damn fool in the magazine thing," the breakout housewife said. "You know, a fool is a fool."

"This is your first time doing this, you don't need somewhat coming in trying to wreck your sh*t."


Cynthia, who canned Porsha Stewart from the festivities, went against NeNe's advice and included Kenya as part of the event.

Eventually, the pageants went off with a few minor gaffes: fashion model Boris Kodjoe co-hosted the event, though wasn't apparently told of a formal dress code; scripts got mixed up, and the wrong names were announced; and there was a long delay in announcing the winners.

Still, Kenya came through fine as a judge, and the event went off better than not.
