Nene Leakes has been doing a TON of publicity for Cinderella lately. Its pretty amazing actually considering she is doing 8 shows a week most weeks. In this interview with Kelly & Michael, Nene doesn’t seem the least bit tired! How is that even possible? I love the Donna Karan dress, she has finally found a hit with her favorite look, the see through black lace. And I ADORE a dress with pockets. Love the shoes and can’t believe how tiny the stilletos are, her feet have got to be killing her. It was good to see her truly looking happy for a change. Sure she threw some shade… but it wasn’t nearly has hateful as she often is.
But we still have to talk about that wig. Does she have a collection of these really bad wigs? Is it really a weave like she claims? It looks like a different bad wig each time we see her lately. I just don’t get what she likes about this look.
And O.O are you still going to go?. Ticket sales are down last I heard so you should be able to get a cheap ticket from the Time Square booth on the day of show.
First of all, my thoughts are with our friends in Sydney tonight as some sort of terrorist situation is going on there. Everyone be safe.
We are right back where we left last week with Nene running her ugly mouth at Cynthia and Cynthia just sitting there watching Nene implode. I just noticed Porsha’s hair. If that is her hair line it looks like some really good hair. She’s a great spokesperson for the hairline too. The whole find someone pretty and dumb as a bag of weave must be making the company giggle. A lot. Anyway, Nene screams at Cynthia like a banshee and walks off.
Nene comes back, dabbing her eyes and Phaedra says to Kandi, “Maybe we should let them have a moment.” Which we know really means, “Hey, let’s try to go get a drink before this bar shuts all the way down. I need a chicken wang or somethin’.” (Nightmare recount of filming this scene here.) So everyone tries to make a break for it and leave Cynthia to deal with Nene. Continue reading

Thanks Urethra Franklin for the graphic!
Just when you think Nene can’t get any more delusional.
Here is her take on Cynthia this week. I have bolded the most delusional parts in my opinion.
Going into dinner with these ladies will never be a fun thing for me, and that probably will never change, but I’ve made a few changes of my own. I have come to a place in my life where I just don’t have the time or energy to entertain people who don’t like me or support me, people who hurt me and that pull energy instead of giving energy. Those that never compliment but always ridicule. Those that manipulate and lie. The people you know who are willing to turn on you for so called opportunities or the almighty dollar with no explanation! The people that want everyone to believe you’re the bad guy when in reality they are. The people that stab you in the back and watch you bleed with no sympathy. The only people I need in my life are those that need me in theirs, even when I have nothing to offer but Nene. Continue reading

As we saw on last weeks show the ladies all met up at Einstien’s for dinner. I’ve discussed many times that the housewives never actually eat at dinner. Production seems overly concerned about editing a meal because they cut footage together and don’t want to have issues with continuity based on the plates being full, then empty, then half full again. The Atlanta production crew is the most anal about this. We have seen RHONJ and RHOBH actually eat at dinner, but RHOA rarely if ever do. This is also the reason for the red solo cups I like to freak out about. They use them because the cover the amount of wine in the glass so that it doesn’t show more wine, then less, then more, etc.
As an added bonus, it make the RHOA cranky because they are starving in a restaurant full of food they can’t eat. You will see this season that Phaedra and Porsha filmed dinner at The Palm in Atlanta. They ordered a ton of food and took it all to go to eat in peace without having to worry about eating on camera.
This week at Einstein’s Phaedra was showing bitterly complaining about every damn thing. The lack or water. The stale crackers. The slow service. She was a pill. Continue reading

Oh my god… It literally took me three hours to make it through tonight’s RHOA. I really am not up for this. But here we go anyway.
This is already ridiculous. There is no contest between Kim and Nene.
Okay Kim brought her own solo cup to the show. I want to turn this off now. This is not news. I can’t
Andy mocks Nene’s wig on The View and says she was channeling Kim. HA! I LOVE HIM NOW.
They each had to choose plead the fifth questions for the other.That is news! One will be on the aftershow. Let me know how that goes. I am so wanting my Christmas movies I ONLY HAD AN HOUR AND A HALF OF WORK TONIGHT! I am missing Christmas movies for this news…not news! Continue reading
I’ve had sort of a stressful evening so I am sipping the hell out of some wine and loading all the weapons and taking the collar off the attack dog in case he “gets loose.” So don’t sweat me about this Real Housewives of Atlanta recap. I may or may not have to stop and drag a body or three over the threshold but, but we will get through this.
Is the first HW of the evening and she is visiting Claudia who is the first person mentioned in the official description of this episode. Who is the HBIC now?
Claudia gets the intro on the same scene. MMMMhmmm Claudia has a stunning corner apartment with a view of the whole city. Claudia is so city girllllll *SCHREEEECCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCHHHHHHH* Holy fuck. Red solo cups. I can’t. Please give me a minute to compose myself as these two Yankees get all Kim Zolciak (born Yankee) and act all white trash. I can’t. I really can’t. OMG! Kenya acknowledges the problem. Kindly and gently and points out that is what winos do. THANK YOU KENYA. Frankly, I have heard that the girls do it for the same reasons they don’t eat during restaurant scenes. Production makes them do it for continuity. You know, full glass empty glass. full glass again issues. I’m sorry I just would not be able to comply. It’s a travesty. Continue reading

Um, In case you needed to see more of THAT WIG…. Now you can. Sorry. If I had to watch it so do you.
Oh god. I knew I should have made coffee today. I was minding my own business moderating comments and The View started blaring in the back ground. There was loud dance music and Rosie O and Whoopi were dancing it up and the Republican chick, Nicole? and Madea were dragging ass across the stage. Then I realized it was not Madea. It was Nene Leakes. I’m not kidding. I really thought Madea was there for a Christmas movie or something. Apologies.
Nene’s wig. God it is horrible. I’m one of the few people who kinda likes the finger waves, so my bar is very low, but it’s bad. Okay no it is not. When she literally dragged ass across the stage in the matronly black dress it looked bad, but up close from the front it’s okay. I wish she would realize that blond is not a good choice for her. Even when she wears the white face makeup, it still doesn’t work for her. But, at least it is longer, nearly shoulder length, she is in for Rosie Perez. Whoopi made some big deal about Rosie Perez rumors about her leaving are not true. Those are not the rumors, the rumors are that O’Donnell is out the door. So that was weird. Anyway. Nene’s lumbering may mean she is sore from the Broadway workout. She is not losing any weight yet. She didn’t lose any on DWTS either did she?
Meanwhile everyone is chatting about Nicole’s interesting night at home last night full of catastrophe and Nene is just like a tennis tournament spectator. Nene is annoying me and all she is doing is smiling and nodding and preening her wig. I’m really trying to be nice. It’s not working. Nene is out of her element sitting at a table talking about politics. She is literally sitting there with her hand on her chin going “mmm hmmm” no matter who is talking. Continue reading
Because LALATE ruled the Internets today….#NENE
I am slow on the go tonight so this may take forever, but here we go on the Real Housewives of Atlanta. I’m also trying a new format tonight so let’s get on with the show.
I don’t even need to see this scene before I know it is going to be more evidence that Kandi and Todd’s marriage is never going to last. We are at the Kandi Factory and I am already thinking that they should have talked about WAY more stuff before hooking up. They don’t seem to agree about any of the big issues. This already seems so staged. I get that it is all staged. But could two people ever be more mismatched? I hope for Kandi’s sake this is not how she runs a business. She seems to know how to manage money and run a business, so I don’t believe any of this. Sorry, Bravo.
Wait. Why is Todd all up in her business?
Kandi has a team meeting about “her brand” but Todd decides to chime in. Kandi is suddenly on Don Juan over some shit about having Kandi give some classes on songwriting. This may be a good time to point out that in my VERY early days when maybe five people read here that Don Juan took it upon himself to question why I had the nerve to wonder why Kandi was doing an event at some Asian restaurant in the Midwest. I spent way too long looking for that post. It was a restaurant like Chin Chin if you are from Atlanta, it’s decent Chinese but not the place you would expect to hire a housewive. I loved Kandi and thought it was beneath her. Don Juan let me know that Kandi is a single mom just trying to support a child. Um WTF? She’s a millionaire. How is going to St Louis or wherever going to make a difference? She’s actually losing time with her child for a few thousand dollars she will never spend? It made no sense.
Sorry, back to the show.
Todd says that everyone is too comfortable. He chastises the staff. Kandi actually tries to draw out Todd more. Like she is asking him to drop the hammer because she has hired FRIENDS for her entire staff. Dumb move.
Later Don Juan asks Todd to step out so he can talk to Kandi. Basically he is pissed that Todd is reprimanding people. He is NOT an employee. Don Juan called this months ago. Kandi doesn’t realize how much Kandi does.
Todd has a conversation with Don Juan. Don Juan is also right. He puts his resume up against Kandi. WTF is TODD fucking up her business relationship of 12 years? Don Juan knows EVERYTHING Kandi which is why he tried to check me with 37 viewers. I may not be a fan of Don Juan but the boy is on top of shit. I am starting to side with Mama Joyce here. Todd is a cunt. I love Don Juan for saying, “Let’s put him in a step stair so he can look me in my eye.” Kandi is fucking up.

I just read a great interview of Nene Leakes by Dave Quinn, a reporter for NBC’s NY affiliate. I just had to share it with you. He asks great questions. I thought “Do you have any regrets from being on RHOA was especially smart. It’s a really good interview! Of course Nene brings up salaries for RHOA. Implies that Cynthia dumped her because she got a raise. Just get started reading it!
NBC 4 NEW YORK: Is this your first holiday season in New York?
NENE LEAKES: It is. I’ve been here once or maybe twice for New Year’s Eve, but I’ve never lived here this long a period of time. My youngest son and my husband are here now, and right now we’re scrambling looking for a place to eat for Thanksgiving. Usually I cook for my family, but this year we’re going out. Continue reading
“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
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
