Nene Leakes Makes The Wall Street Journal

Just when I though Nene’s notoriety could not surprise me any more, it does. Guess who was written up in….wait for it……The Wall Street Journal! I am not kidding. This video is a conversation between two Wall Street Journal journalists discussing Nene Leakes unprecedented leap from reality shows to mainstream TV. Sure they equate it to a porn star breaking into mainstream cinema, and yeah, they mention that she only plays herself and is sort of a one-note Betty, but the goddamn Wall Street Journal is talking about Nene Leakes!  I fear the whole doomsday end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it prediction for this December is probably actually going to happen now. I need to book a fancy vacation between now and then.

And there is plenty of tea in their story! Click to page 2 for all the spilling.

    Actually, Nene needs to stop listening to advisors, because they’ve ruined her. What happened to the fun Nene we all loved in Season 1? All this shit has gone to her head, and she has turned arrogant and really boring. She thinks she is above her current castmates, yet she rents her home, and doesn’t have half the networth that Kandi or Phaedra has.

    She use to be the HEART of RHOA and made the show, but this past season she was boring. All she did was film with Cynthia, open up gifts from her sugar daddy, and leave events early bitching over this or that. BORING.

      Lol. Ruined her? Do you understand what this item is about? It’s about the housewife who has had the second most commercial success of any except Bethany Frankface. Her ha does RUINED her? Bwaaaahah. Get a grip. She is far from ruined.

        I agree, people hate to see growth. At least some people, I think she’s trying and working hard at being all she’s dreamed of. Im proud of her..##TeamNeNe…

      • pffft

        Yes the advisors have ruined her. Nene was everyone’s favorite Housewife on Season 1, she was sassy, a little bitchy, not afraid of confrontation… yet she was fun. She seemed like someone you would like to hang out with, and she seemed down to earth. She was hilarious.

        But she showed her true colors during Season 4. Yelling out she is “rich” yet she rents her home, had missing teeth (got that taken care of after Sheree called her out), and she wears the same wardrobe over and over. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but she should stop yelling out she is rich and pretending to be the Queen of fashion when she recycles the same outfits all the fucking time.

        Not to mention she showed up to Peter’s launch of the pathetic Bar 1, LATE when she was supposed to be the host. Never filmed with the rest of the cast. When she did film with them, she would storm out of the events early complaining because it wasn’t centered around HERSELF.

        Not to mention she insulted fans of the show by calling them “twitter people” and acted like she is above them. This is the same bitch who stripped for a living, before Gregg saved her ass. Yet she wants to act like she is better than people on twitter. The people who helped her get where she is today.

        She tells Kim to close her legs to married men, yet Nene was married and fucking both Gregg and that fat rich dude at the same time. Very classy.

        She is so hypocritical and self centered. Yet she gets an over all good edit, because it is obvious that Andy Cohen favors her.

        She acted like such an ass during the reunion, basically wanting Kim and Sheree to kiss her ass for getting them on the show. That was so self centered. Yet we all know that Nene USED THEM to get on the show. She knew that women married or were married to ballers would be a good pitch, and she used them (Sheree and DeShawn) to bolster herself, because she didn’t have money or connections like the two of them.
        She even said on episode one that she was around a lot of rich women that “have gone and left her chile.”

        She rented her house, was involved in tons of dirty sleazy business dealings with Gregg. She and Gregg fucked a lot of people over… and in reality was living in a modest town home, and the home showed on Season 1 was all for show.

        Nene is about the fakest and most self centered stuck up Housewife out of the entire franchise.

        She has lost so many fans, and if she keeps this stuck up shit going for Season 5 I expect her to go down hill. Because Glee isn’t going to be on TV much longer, and the only reason Nene is so popular is because of Housewives. When that is over, she will be over.

    • We Found Love in a Hopeless Place

      Season 2 NeNe was the realest. She lost that with the fame. I am proud of her, but she’s too fake now.

  2. From the Ridiculous (Oh She of a Certain Chateau) to the Sublime. Nene has taken what the good lord gave her, dialed it up & sold it on. This is the blueprint that should be handed out to any number of Housewives.

    • pffft

      Yep Nene sure has done a great job of getting to the top. You should look up the report Fox 5 did on the bitch in 2008. She and Gregg were involved in a lot of dirty and sleazy business dealings and they fucked people over.

      They couldn’t afford to pay the rent on the home showed on Season 1, and they really lived in a modest town home (remember when Nene made fun of Kim for living in a home “connected to her neighbors? PFFFT Kim’s townhouse is a luxry upscale, townhouse, that Nene most likely couldn’t afford at the time. And it sure as hell looked a lot better than the one Nene and Gregg lived in.)

      Nene hasn’t played the game fair or right. She is shady. She is so fake. Like Sheree said, the same people she looked down on, on her way up… She is gonna be looking at them on her way down.

      Nene is like a Kristen Stewart… I’ll bet when Housewives is over, and when Ryan Murphy is done with her. She’ll try to fuck some director who is already married so she can get some small part in a movie or TV show. That is how Nene rolls.

    Pffft & Julius —-
    Do either of you ladies actually know NeNe? I doubt it. So, why the trash talk? I’ve never been a fan of NeNe’s. However, have to say – she did something with her opportunity. And she’s laughing all the way to the bank. Do yall have ANY idea what a lead, or secondary role pays on good sitcoms? This one is the brand new, fresh out of the bag, She’s raking in the dough. What is wrong with that? Isn’t it what every single RH from whatever city you want to name, trying to do the same thing….their product selling may be different than NeNe’s…..but they’re still using their 15 minutes of fame to turn nothing into something. I wish her all the best. She works hard, shows up for work on time, and knows her lines. Get off the Jello Yello Bus and do some work yourselfs.

    • Tc

      Why would you call Julius a lady?

    • Robi

      I think Julius was saying the same thing…

      • Hang. On. Joanie & Robi. I have been Team Nene since I first met the RHoA three Seasons ago!

        I think she’s an absolute Superstar.

        In no way was I taking a shot at Ms. Leakes success, I think she has leveraged Reality TV perfectly & that is what I meant by a blueprint of how to manage your profile.

        Nene did take what the good lord gave her & created Brand Nene. Genius. I would never belittle success…now Chateau He/She by Sheree that’s different. ;-)

        (Thank you Tc)

      I don’t know Nene. But I have watched her on Season 4, and she really showed her ass. Why don’t you watch this? It exposes the fake bitch and her shady business dealings… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2CB5accujkI

    fabulous! that’s my girl! #teamnene #winning

  5. Just watched the video…”This is an instance of Ryan Murphy tapping Nene Leakes”… bwahahahahahahahah!!!

  6. RDJay

    She is damned if she “does” & damned if she “does not”…what an accomplishment and if you get your 15 mins in the spotlight why not catapult it to more than being a reality star!!! Her dream has been acting and today has been living that part of her life out in Glee and The New Normal. So go ahead and make things happen regardless of how I personally feel about you.

    According to Ms Tamara, Nene is only being paid a small salary. I’m surprised she letting y’all write all these good things abt Nene

    • She was paid scale for her role in Glee, and most likely the same for The New Normal. The SAG pay scale was designed for people breaking into acting, like Nene. I know y’all love her to death and think she should be paid more that Meryl Streep and Streisand put together, but it just doesn’t work that way. Nene is more than thrilled to have two small roles on sucessful shows. She’s working for the exposure and the experience and very lucky to have landed the parts. :) The paycheck is irrelevant to the income potential these jobs provide.

      And I think my article is pretty complimentary to Ms. Leakes. She’s accomplished quite a bit in the last few years.

      • Could be...

        What!?
        Is Tamara born again???
        complimenting Nene?….
        I must be on the wrong blog!

      • LOL I know right? I can’t help but be impressed with the new Nene. She’s a real hustler. :)

      • L. M.

        Whatever happened to “congratulations, sista!”? Now, the woman’s fake and boring because she won’t act like a tap dancing monkey; perpetuating negative stereotypes of black women on national television. We have got to get it together. When you KNOW better, you DO better. What’s wrong with changing and growing? People are so darn sickening with that whole “She’s fake” b.s. They don’t know her–neither do I, for that matter. But, what is wrong with not acting the way you did in 2007? I don’t act the same as I did 5 years ago either. If I did–people would be talking about how immature and inappropriate I am. Grow up, women! Really! Be happy for a sista who’s growing up and helping herself and her family.

      • Tc

        Two people were negative. The feedback here is very positive for the most part. Who are you preaching to?

  8. pffft

    All you Nene stans need to do your research… Watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2CB5accujkI and read up on the fuckery she engaged in with her domestic violence charity… The reason she QUIT Celebrity Apprentice was because any money she won for the charity couldn’t be used because the charity had been dissolved. The state of GA put the skids to the charity.

    And Nene only did the charty for the show. It didn’t do SHIT. AND Nene never could account for the $20,000 raised for the charity on the show. How much ya wanna bet she and her scam artist husband Gregg pocketed the money?

  9. Janice

    I pretty much like NeNe and I really admire how she took the opportunity from the real show and expanded herself into a brand.
    Did she change through the RHOA seasons? Yes. Do I like her attitude on the show now? Not Really… but you have to admire the hustle.
    So go on, Miss NeNe. Hustle away.

  10. Janice

    Where is my mind today?? I meant “reality” not ‘Real” show.

  11. Dawn Raine

    Nene reminds me of Julie Andrews in Victor Victoria; a woman playing a man playing a woman. She looks more tyranny than a tyranny. I think that look is her appeal to Ryan Murphy.

  12. Melissa

    Tamara are u in NeNe’s bank account?! U really don’t know how much she really gets paid u think u know lol I believe she gets paid wayyy more than u think! She has a home in LA & Atl that ain’t cheap! U were the same one who said NeNe only gets paid $10,000 per episode on Rhoa but the truth is she is getting paid a million dollars CHILE BYE!

  13. Oh you of little faith

    There is no doubt that bloganaut tattles has a stinger out for NeNe. She can’t admit it, but she does. I read a few of her previous post and boy did she rejoice when Candy and Kim got a spin off. She was so excited at the prospect of NeNe defeat that she put a Pic of NeNe crying. When NeNe said she wasn’t interested in a spinoff at that time, on tattletale fell on her back kicking and laughing. Then NeNe lands a spot on Glee, much to Ms. tellatales surprise. What had NeNe done to you that makes you wish her such ill will. It is had for me to understand how you can have your head so far up Kim’s wig wearing, gold digging, trailer trash acting, no parenting skill having, bad english speaking behind. You know people usually are attracted to people like themselves. Keep the negative comming about NeNe the more you do the more successful she seems to become.
