According to Daily Mail Linnethia Monique Leakes, was hit with a Federal Tax Lien on July 22 in Georgia court. The IRS wants a total of $824,366.01 in back taxes for the year 2014, according to court documents. How could she possibly owe that much in taxes? Well, in 2014 she was paid well under a million dollars by RHOA, but also received a six figure income from DWTS where she placed seventh on the show. She also had income from her role on Cinderella that year and got an advance on her clothing line which also began in 2014. And she did a few other paid appearances and sold a bunch of t-shirts and crap. In nearly every one of those instances, Nene was paid as an independent contractor which means she got the checks with no taxes taken out and received a copy of the 1099 which was sent to the IRS by the employers. I guess she thought she just didn’t need to file taxes.
According to my calculations, using the tax amount as the known variable, Nene make approximately $2.1 million in 2014 and did not file a tax return. She did buy that giant house where she never lives. And the IRS is grateful for that, because they have placed a lien on the property.
According to the lien, it looks like she has ten years to refile. But I would not count on that. The IRS will be quite unhappy with the lack of filings and will now look into her previous and future years very closely. Something tells me this was not a one time thing.
It’s been over a year since Nene Leakes bought her new house in Atlanta. There has been a lot of discussion since the move about her lack of furniture. She even got really pissed off while on The View when someone asked where her furniture was during her appearance. Nene was claiming for a while that she was going to be a furniture designer and sell her own line of furniture. You really should click on that link, it’s a great post if I do say so myself. And as usual I was right, there is and never was a furniture line.
Someone has been sending me lots of Nene related interviews lately. It seems as though Larry King has taken his cancelled TV show to the Internet and one of the people he has interviewed was Nene. When she was asked what she liked best about being famous, she said, “The perks.” Even though she is still striving to receive some perks.
Leave it to Nene to find a way to get free furniture, at least for one room.
Last night I was trying to check in on the crazy in the world via Google News. While I was there, feeding my anxiety, I happened to see a major story in the Entertainment section where the title suggested that Cynthia Bailey was leaving RHOA. As exhausted as I was, I went to see what the heck that was all about. Cynthia just bought a lake house. Cynthia is currently filming. This post makes no sense. Who is the source of this story? Imagine my surprise when the source is….ME! Wait whut? When did I say that?
Apparently, when I said that Cynthia was likely to relocate to LA or NYC sooner than you might think, someone interpreted it as me saying she was leaving the show. From there the story spread like wildfire. The good news is that the major sites all linked to me. The bad news is the story is based on someone reading more into the story than was there. So now I am trending on Facebook. For something that I never said. This doesn’t really bother me, because at least they are linking to me. I wish it was for my Nene news, but I’ll take it.
What bothers me is that my BIG NEWS which I did break exclusively, that Nene doesn’t have a contract with RHOA, was stolen by TMZ. They seemed to make things up surrounding my major points that just were not true and then say they got it from “a source”. I went through a long period where TMZ was stealing my stuff and used to say “Read here first, watch for it on TMZ tomorrow.” That is annoying.
I’ve been sitting on so much EXCLUSIVE RHOA tea this week because my exclusive sources are finally coming through with so much information. So let me sort through it all in some sort of cohesive way because different information came from different sources and I need to weave everything together. Let’s start with the three women I know of who are testing. Then we will get into what is going on with each of the housewives so far, and pop some popcorn because it is juicy.
Leilani is a friend of Sheree Whitfield’s. She is a realtor and has two kids. She was filmed at Sheree’s son Kairo’s birthday party recently. She was also at a made for TV birthday party for Porsha over the weekend. Of the three women, she has done the least amount of testing. I think she will be an FOH or just be around in a few scenes. I don’t see her having a peach when Sheree doesn’t even have one yet. I’m not sure if she was at Kenya’s housewarming. This one probably has more dues to pay.

Working Hard for the Money!
Tonight, Nene Leakes will be on Family Feud with the Leakes clan at 8 p.m. I won’t be able to watch because I have to recap Shahs of Sunset and record Big Brother. Maybe I will catch it On Demand on day if ya’ll leave good reviews on the show in comments. I am going to need some of y’all to let me know how that goes.
Nene has been so busy with all these game shows and her upcoming “comedy tour” she barely has time to take care of herself! But, GLORY BE! Today she made it to a hair salon.
And she has posted a photo. Please click through to see her new look!
Before we even begin I am confident of two things. 1) Nene is pissed that Vivica is on the show. (2) There will be Kenya Moore bashing. Now I finally have a moment to check out Nene’s new face!
Andy starts right in at the introduction bringing up the time Sheree told Nene to “Fix that Face” ! Let the shade begin. I have a terrible memory, so I am probably wrong but wasn’t it Nene who said that to Sheree and Sheree told Nene to “Fix that Body!” ! That would make more sense anyway.
I blame my poor facial recognition skills for not seeing much difference in Nene’s face. I will say I am thrilled with her hair. I really need for hair to be symmetrical unless you are under 25 and club hopping or a lesbian. Otherwise, none of this ones side short and the other side long nonsense. At the very least you need hair on both sides of your head.
Nene says she talked to Cynthia this morning. They are back thick as thieves.http://tamaratattles.com/2015/04/26/real-housewives-of-atlanta-reunion-part-one-recap-nene-is-a-victim-act-one/# Peter came to Nene’s “comedy show” in Charlotte, Nene says that she is still friends with Peter and texted him just yesterday and he is doing good. Cynthia an Peter are the only ones who made it to Charlotte for her show.
