When it comes to Nene Leakes, there is one thing we know for sure. Nene likes to flaunt it. Over the Christmas holidays Nene was tweeting pictures of all her fabulous gifts, a fancy handbag, some Louboutins, a pair of earrings, and this necklace pictured on top of her new Birkin. Nene tweeted this picture on Christmas day with the following tweet, “OMG he gave me an amazing all Diamond Letter N necklace! I love it!”. So of course, we all wondered who “he” was.
Wetpaint recently interviewed John Kolaj and this is the quote they included in the article regarding his gift giving, “Absolutely, I gave her that ring! It’s 8 carats. I gave her a set of diamond earrings, too.” They also quote him as saying he gave her “a few pairs” of Louboutins.
First of all, all precious stones are measured in carats, the standard measurement of weight.There was no mention of the type of stone in the ring. Secondly, if Nene received an 8 carat ring, of any sort, she would surely tweet a picture. That is what Nene does. Color me skeptical about there being any 8 carat diamond ring, total weight or otherwise. This necklace was Nene’s big Christmas gift “from him”.
She also tweeted a picture of “diamond earrings” that were also “from him” on her birthday. I know enough about jewelry to know these earrings are not from Cartier or Tiffany. It’s odd to me that there is no jeweler name on the inside of the lid of the box. It is impossible to authenticate diamonds from a picture on the Internet but if they were from a major jewelry company, I think it would be obvious.
I am not making this post to call out Nene’s gifts. I am pointing out some inconsistencies between John Kolaj’s interview quotes and Nene’s tweets. And also to question why neither Nene nor John will state for the record what their relationship is. Nene is trying very hard in her tweets to appear as though she is in a relationship with someone that is serious enough to warrant expensive gifts. John certainly has plenty of money. If it IS him, I would think Bravo would want Nene to admit it. I mean after all that is the “storyline” right? Yet Nene remains married to Gregg. For whatever reason, Nene seems to be pretending to be in a relationship with John. Perhaps John didn’t quite have the gift list straight when he interviewed with Wetpaint? It’s all very strange to me. What do y’all think is going on?
