Nene Leakes Debuts A Madame in Cinderella on Broadway!

RHOA Nene cinderellla

“Waking up this morning in a daze like what just happened! I stood before a SOLD OUT Broadway theatre screaming my name! The overwhelming amount of love & support brought me to tears! I have so many people to Thank this morning. You might get tired of me today because I will be posting lots of pictures of last Nite. I can’t believe this. Like I really can’t believe this!” ~Nene Leakes

That is Nene Leakes this morning after  her Broadway debut on Tuesday night as Madame in Cinderella. It looks like we have had some misconceptions about the size of the role of Madame. It appears to be the third largest role in the entire play. According to Nene, it has the most lines of any other character. Keke Palmer and Nene Leakes both had their name up on the sign, while I get that both are new, the guy who has been playing the prince did not have his name up. I am getting the feeling that this is an even bigger deal that I originally thought. It sounds like Nene was a huge hit!

So major props to Nene on getting through her first performance and being well received by the sold out crowd! Continue reading

Kenya Moore Has Some “THOTs” on “A Woman’s Virtue”

Team Pretty

Team Pretty

This week on Kenya’s blog she had a few choice words for Nene and Porsha’s trash talking this week.

BEEN AROUND THE BLOCK

I have been respectfully employed since the age of 14, managing to stay off a pole and out of jail. Therefore, for 20 plus years I have been around the block working. NeNe cannot say the same. I will no longer tolerate the thinly veiled insults aimed at my virtue as a woman. Several seasons ago, NeNe blatantly flirted with Peter and was greatly criticized. However, no one took her seriously because of the way she looks. Clearly, she’s not a threat to anyone’s marriage. Lucky for her. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta: All Tea, All Shade (Recap)

RHOA PHillipines2

I can’t wait for us to get to know Claudia Jordan tonight! First, Cynthia and Porsha talk about Cynthia’s party. Porsha throws shade right of the bat toward Cynthia saying she started out as little Nene and now she is baby Kenya. Porsha is so funny in these scenes talking  about Claudia. This is before she knew that Claudia was there to snatch her peach. Phaedra finally shows up to the pow wow with Porsha and Kandi. BTW, they are at some high-end bar in Atlanta and Phaedra and Porsha are dressed to the nines and Phaedra is in yoga pants and a tank top. Phaedra asks how Cynthia’s party was because she missed it. Nope, she was tipped off and kept right on driving after arriving at Bar One. Anyway, Kandi tells the story. Kandi tells Phaedra (and that other one)about Apollo lying about everything related to Kenya.

Phaedra acts SHOCKED! Shocked I tell you! She was 8 months pregnant at the time Apollo was telling her this and it just added to the stress. Now this puts her under more stress. Wow, Phaedra admits that she owes Kenya an apology. She doesn’t think Kenya is Mother Teresa but she is woman enough to have a conversation and apologize and move forward. I’ll believe that when I see it. Kandi says, “Not just you all of us.” The editing is shady and it looks like Porsha is agreeing. In her talking head Kandi says she feels bad for Kenya. Phaedra says, “Oh that’s terrible. Poor Kenya.”

Meanwhile Kenya and her aunt are at Lush Life landscaping. It’s a really pretty setting. Her aunt suggests she consider a cactus since she has a tendency to kill flowers. Her aunt is suggesting Kenya find forgiveness for all of them, especially Porsha. They flash to a montage of Porsha and Nene and Phaedra saying vile things about Kenya at the last reunion. Kenya is struggling to forgive. She says she would be willing if they were willing to reach out to her first. Her Aunt tries to coax Kenya to be the bigger person. Kenya dramatically spouts off some Shakespeare (Iago from Othello if you are interested.)   Continue reading

Exclusive! Nene Throws A Fit and Argues With RHOA Production

Why hello there fellow bloggers! Please don’t step on my exclusive and remember to use only excerpts and give proper credit. I’d had for you to catch Ebola for Christmas due to bad karma. It’s not a good time of year to upset the baby Jesus.

I was pretty sure that other than Nene’s Broadway debut filming for RHOA had already ended. But it seems like they decided to extend filming to include an event yesterday in Atlanta  at Frederick Douglass High School.  The event was to highlight the Save Our Sons program and Phaedra Parks was one of the members of a panel. Here is the official description of the even from their press release, ” The S.O.S. rally will include several panel discussions on topics of interest including supporting the development and learning of African-American males in metro Atlanta, the responsibilities of law enforcement officer and the rights of individuals, supporting those who are already in the criminal justice system and recommendations to optimize opportunities for African-American youth. The event will also feature special performances and a community resource fair.”

Here is where it gets interesting. I had a commenter who was at the event who reported it was being filmed. Not only was Phaedra there, but Kenya was there (um why? I thought Phaedra and Kenya remained mortal enemies this season.) as well as Nene (Um why? She is supposed to be in NYC.  According to Nene’s twitter timeline she hosted an event well into the wee hours of the morning yesterday. How could she have gotten there.?  So this morning after getting ahold of a Bravo source, I asked for confirmation of the commenters account. The source confirmed it in its entirety.  So as strange as it seems,  Phaedra, Nene and Kenya came face to face to face yesterday. Minor edit: Also in attendance were Claudia, Cynthia and Peter and Porsha.  That makes more sense. :) Kandi did NOT attend. Continue reading

Nene Continues To Think She is Kim Kardashian

RHOA nene ass

This is just pathetic. On so many levels. I’m already hearing Nene was fired from her DRAG QUEEN job in Vegas before it ended.  If she can’t play a drag queen for a week, there is no way she can close out a Broadway show for a month. You heard it here first. Nene quits ERRYTHANG. Wait and see. Nene’s comment?

Me and my girl @kimkardashian about to break the Internet Bay Bay LOL..

How low can you go trying to build off Kim K?

I’m investigating the rumors about Zumanity.  I can confirm the shitty reviews, but there is more. I don’t expect her to last as long as the show…

Nene Leakes on Dr. Oz

Nene Blood Clots

Nene was on Dr. Oz today talking about toxic relationships?  She starts by giving an update on her blot clot situation. She says she is on daily medication for it, and she currently is clotfree, but she is still concerned about them coming back.  Doctor Oz brings up the fact that Nene did not go on the Phillipines trip, allegedly due to concerns about clotting. It was a 15 hour trip for the first leg to Seoul, but that is a giant airplane with a duty free shop and a bar and plenty of opportunities to walk around. Dr. Oz says “That was very wise. It would have been an unsafe thing to do.” Which is mostly bullshit, she is on medication, she knows she has risk factors,  there are compression socks you can wear, and measures you can take on long flights that reduce the likelihood of developing a clot tremendously.  You don’t have to stop taking long trips once the clots are gone. That said, it is a scary thing and I can totally see her not wanting to take the 15 hour flight. And the clots are a great excuse to get out of it even if you just didn’t want to go. Dr. Oz  asks if she is sad she missed the trip and she says no, and laughs. Continue reading

Nene Leakes Is Doing Exactly What I Predicted…

Gif by T.Kyle RealityTVGifs.tumblr.com

We’re only two seasons in and Nene is already doing exactly what I said she would. If you recall, there was a lot of discussion by production about what to do, or what not to do with Nene and Porsha. It became obvious that neither one fit in with the cast anymore and the decision about what to do with Porsha was simple. She had no storyline. She could be dropped. But what about Nene? Despite the fact that Nene no longer fit in either, she’s Nene and she has a broad fan base. So it was decided she would have a different sort of contract where she was filmed doing her thing and only occasionally had contact with the others. Cynthia’s stock was up as she was renewing a friendship with Kenya and would also film well with Claudia Jordan and Demetria McKinney.  Also on the outside was Phaedra. Phaedra has a major storyline with the Apollo situation this season, but also is not really fitting in with the other ladies. So to review, We have the nucleus of the show, Cynthia, Kenya, Claudia and to a degree Demetria, (AKA Team Pretty), we have Kandi who will pretty much film with whoever but also has her Mama Drama storyline that Bravo thinks we are into, and then Nene and Phaedra.  Kandi hops on the Team Pretty train, which alienates her further from Phaedra.  So the decision was made to bring Porsha back to film with Nene and Phaedra.

We’re going to see scenes of Nene with Porsha getting filled in on what the main cast is doing. And Porsha with Phaedra getting filled in on what the maid cast is doing. Kandi will be all over the place at first but eventually settles in with Cynthia, Claudia, Demetria and Kenya. It won’t surprise me if Nene disappears all together by the time the season is about mid way through and we don’t see her again until she rehearses for Cinderella. Continue reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta: No Moore Apollogies (Recap)

RHOA Apollo and sons

It’s time for RHOA, or more accurately, the Phaedra and Apollo show. Phaedra manages to get free dental care for the boys by filming them going to see the dentist.  There were ten tons of promotional shots. That should keep them in dental care until their adult years. I found it very strange that the street numbers were blurred on the building. Why? They showed name of the practice a dozen times, and had every item they sell displayed behind the reception desk, but for some reason someone went to the trouble to blur the street address?  Also is Phaedra married to that giant bagel on her head? How much does that thing weigh? It makes my head hot just looking at her wearing that all over the place in Atlanta in the summer. Why does Apollo looked shocked to see Phaedra and Ayden? Clearly he knew about the appointment which is why he was there. #BadActing  Ayden was priceless with the whole, “Daddy? Oh boy….” reaction.

Did we really need the entire family in the room for his cleaning? How many times is Phaedra going to point out to us that her focus is on parenting? Pretty much everything she says, you may presume the opposite. Phaedra has TWO fulltime people to watch the boys. One, an overnight nanny lives in the house. The other, a baby sitter is there all day when the boys are awake. Phaedra’s mother is there a lot too and keeps the kids when she goes on “book tours” for months at a time. According to Angela Stanton, who becomes more believable by the day, Phaedra never liked her kids and was very standoffish around her kids. Even in Phaedra’s first bizarre deposition, she commented on Angela “always being pregnant” as if that were a bad thing. But now, suddenly, Phaedra would have us believe she is all about parenting. I’m not buying it.

Cynthia is excited for the release of her Ebony edition. She also wants us to know she um, “has her groove back” so to speak. Cynthia’s spread is beautiful but in one shot it looks like she is missing an arm. I’m just saying. Peter and Cynthia plan the Ebony party.  Nene and Porsha are not invited. Continue reading

Are Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks Still BFF’s?

RHOA On Their Overseas Trip

RHOA On Their Overseas Trip

UPDATE: It seems I was right. My tweeps are reporting that Phaedra is no longer following Kandi.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta went on two trips this season and posted a lot of Instagram pictures. Of course I went over them several times looking for “clues” and googling images of yellow bathtubs trying to locate the hotel (shut up, you know you want to know first!) and looking at body language. It was clear that my sources were correct and the group is deeply divided. Team Pretty, Kenya, Claudia, Cynthia and Demetria are a solid foursome filmed together and Nene is with Porsha and Phaedra. Both Porsha and Phaedra were easy for Nene to pick up as minions. Porsha because she is a good four standard deviations below the mean on the IQ bell curve, and Phaedra because she has been extremely abusive to Kenya. Team Pretty has known all along that Phaedra’s accusations were lies, but this season, on the next episode in fact, we will see Apollo attempt to right his wrongs before heading to the slammer. Apollo will come clean to Kenya and apologize. This sours team Pretty Team on Phaedra for good. So there is someone else Nene can scoop up to follow her now that Cynthia has burnt up the friendship contract and she’s had a falling out with most anyone else. And that leaves Kandi.

If you look at all of the pictures of the trips I can only find one where Kandi was standing next to Phaedra. On the 15 hour flight to Seoul, Kandi sat next to Cynthia. It seemed to me that these two were not nearly as close as they used to be. We saw on the premiere that the guys (Peter and Todd) were supporting Apollo in the relationship situation between Phaedra and Apollo. Todd had Apollo over and Kandi tried to state Phaedra’s case, but I get the feeling she eventually got tired of hearing Phaedra bitch at her because Todd was being nice to Apollo. It looks like based on these blogs that the two are not BFF’s anymore. What do you think? Continue reading

Cynthia Bailey Shares Her Thoughts On Kenya Moore and Nene Leakes

Instagram

Instagram

So far I’ve only read the Real Housewives of Atlanta blogs by Cynthia and Nene and they both reminded me of Christmas letters. You know the ones I am talking about, right? It may be a southern tradition, but in our large family aunts and uncles and cousins don’t keep in touch as much as we probably should so every Christmas we get letter consisting of sometimes a dozen pages catching us up on a branch of the family tree. Little Johnny is now on the soccer team, Mother broke her hip in May, Susie got married, the husband was promoted etc. etc. Well these ladies two blogs are like this only they are explaining all of their accomplishments since the end of last season. Nene replaced a drag queen, she’s fashion designer, she producing television shows, starting jewelry line, appearing on Broadway, buying some sort of “glamor store”and on and on and on… Cynthia shared information about two of her modeling protégés and their accomplishments, updates on Bar One, and Peters coffee line, and the Charlotte sports bar and so on and so forth. At least, they got all of their promotion out of the way first.

Nene really didn’t have anywhere to go after telling us how wonderful she is; however, Cynthia did have some commentary on her fellow housewives. I’ve selected her thoughts on Kenya and Nene below. She saved some shade for the very end. It’s priceless. Especially coming for the super sweet Cynthia. I guess everyone has their breaking point. Continue reading

Nene Leakes on WWHL

WWHL Nene big wig

 

Okay, is Andy throwing shade already with this picture? Could it be any more unflattering? Let’s see how much ass he kisses in this half hour. I’m hoping for lots of stupid games I don’t have to recap because the RHOA recap took over two hours tonight! Why does Nene wear black on WWHL every time lately? Is she trying to make a statement or is it just a coincidence. I noticed this when hurriedly trying to find a link for the recap tonight. It may mean nothing. We will see.

Actually Nene looks good (not that you could tell in that picture) I think this wig is one of her better choices. Of course she is talking like a fool saying in her fake voice that since she is on Broadway, she thought she would bring a different character. I’d settle for some character. Any modicum of character at all, but let’s move on. Andy has a drag queen as the bartender. More shade?

Andy asks what she thought about Phaedra not going to court for the sentencing. Nene gives a fairly articulate answer and says it’s a tough call and she can see the pros and cons of each side, basically. She says if it was Gregg she would be there. Nene really does look good tonight. Her hair and makeup and dress are all good. Continue reading
