Nene Leakes was on Good Morning America this morning to promote Cinderella, but first Lara Spencer asked her about the upcoming season of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Nene says that on the first episode we will see her in Las Vegas working on Zumanity. She starts on with how she is the OG of the show. Lara seems to be confused by what she means and asks, “OG?” Nene says yes, the OG, the only original…housewife. I’m guessing Nene probably doesn’t even know what OG stands for and just heard Andy Cohen refer to the real OG, Vicki Gunvalson using that term. BTW, Nene did where a blouse today, whether she arrived with it on or was asked to clothe herself remains to be clear. She’s wearing a black suit with a white shirt and a black bra. We know her bra is black because the blouse is completely see-through.
“No I don’t,” says Nene. Laughter breaks out on set. Nene says no one gave her any advice or a handbook you have to learn as you go and it’s kind of different when the new girls come around. Lara asks which new girl is most cringe worthy (more or less, Lara is both a great and at times a bumbling interviewer she’s actually putting Nene at ease and goading her in.) Nene says all of the new girls. Lara presses a little, Nene says she doesn’t like when “they come on and they are just doing so much.” Lara tries to interpret for the masses, “They are trying too hard?” Nene repeats it, “They are trying so hard…yeah, it really disturbs me.” Nene talks about the good ole days with Kim Zolciak when housewives were real. Lara asks if she calls the girls out for trying too hard. Nene says yes, she usually asks them how much they are being paid. And there we have it boys and girls, it took three minutes for Nene to start talking about her money. Oh how hard this one is going to fall.
Lara brings up the fingernail polished Birkin bag as if it is just the smartest idea ever and says, “What is that about?” like butter would not melt in her mouth. Nene jumps right into the fire and starts talking about all of here “Neneisms” as if she is the modern-day Socrates of the housewives franchise. I love me some delusions of relevance in the morning. Nene goes on to list her intellectual idioms, no really, she sort of performs each one as if it were a bit of enlightenment…. Bloop, Plonk, So Nasty so Rude.
Lara finally talks for a minute about Nene’s role in Cinderella and points out that it is definitely type casting and Nene doesn’t get the shade. Lara mentions her clothing line and Nene points out that the see-through shirt is part of her line.
Oh Nene, never change.
