Today on The Wendy Williams Show, Nene came out in some sort of a leather circle skirt, dark purple sweater and black sequins Louboutins. Wendy did what Maya Angelou would call the blow, bite, and blow, complimenting Nene on her weight loss (?) , her shoes, her hair and then immediately pointed out Nene’s eczema on her lower leg. Niiiiice.

Nene tried the same thing with Wendy. Wendy said everyone is talking about Nene and asked Nene if she liked that. Nene’s response is that she has heard what Wendy has been saying and that she doesn’t mind that because she knows Wendy is team Nene. Again, it’s harder to call someone out if they start of the conversation alluding to friendship and support. Essentially, Nene says, I know you are my friend, Wendy and that you would never disrespect me. Nene is very good at this technique. Watch for it on RHOA you will see her doing it a lot

Next, Nene asked Wendy why she had Phaedra, Sheree, and Kandi on altogether and then answered her own question by saying that they are all boring. She went after Sheree again hoping Wendy will go easy on her. Classic deflection.
But this isn’t Wendy ‘s first trip to Nene’s rodeo. Wendy says Nene is big. black and bold and that is something that can put people off. Basically, she played the strong black woman card to put Nene at
ease. But then she said Nene was mean-spirted. Gee, ya think? Wendy followed that by saying Nene is now alone and too defensive and that she wants to see more of her softer side. Wendy accused Nene of trying to backpedal out of the “very rich” on comments WWHL. Nene backpedaled faster. When Wendy pointed out her bad behavior on the premiere, Nene responded that she didn’t even do the event that Sheree talked about when they were fighting at The Grape at Atlantic Station.

Next, Wendy brings up some pictures of Nene that leaked out yesterday of Nene out with Al Reynolds and John Kolaj. These pictures were alleged to have been taken Sunday or Monday night. Then Wendy goes for the direct attack.Wendy actually says close your legs while you are married! Awesome. Wendy asked if she is sleeping with the pizza guy, John Kolaj. Nene says she is so embarrassed and these are the sort of questions that Wendy should ask her privately. When Wendy asked what is going on with Gregg, Nene continues her “we are legally separated” nonsense and says she doesn’t know what the future holds. I am confused too since she was out last weekend with Gregg and if this picture is to be believed she was out all snuggled up with John Kolaj, the pizza guy a few days ago. Gregg has been spotted traveling with Nene on several occasions to events. Nene even says in one of the talking heads for next weeks episode that she doesn’t know if she could actually sign the divorce papers. I think Nene was offered a spinoff that was based on her being single and dating for the first time in many years. She wanted a spinoff, but she was unable to leave Gregg alone. Gregg is the only solid thing Nene has in her life and she is currently playing with fire.
Wendy asks about Kim.Nene was not invited to the wedding and did not send a gift. No surprise there. However, I think the most surprising thing Nene said was that she doesn’t know if her friendship is completely over. Perhaps she wants in on Kim’s spinoff? Then she implies that Kim and Kroy’s marriage is as fake as Kim Kardashians. You’re not going to get on Kim’s coattails like that, Nene.
For Wendy’s final question, she asked if Nene is a grandmother. Nene pretended to be shocked and said her son doesn’t have any children. Not sure that is the truth either. Wendy did not let Nene hawk her bedazzled t-shirts on the air. 🙂
