Kelly and Ryan are in the Bahamas this week doing their live shows. Since Nene stays in Miami a lot during the winter, she can basically swim to the Bahamas. And she gets a free room at Atlantis. I haven’t stayed at Atlantis, but it’s a pretty old place if I recall correctly. I wonder if it has been renovated? Or you can hope a ferry for less than $100 roundtrip.
The first thing they ask is if she comes there often. She says no, but she will now. It’s weird that we don’t go to the Bahamas more often. I haven’t been since I was 18 and “ran away from home” I had a very strict mother and I didn’t feel like I was ever going to be allowed to move out. One day I packed the oddest collection of shit in my trunk and told my parents I was moving to Florida. Mother was surprisingly very “whatever” about it. As I was pulling out of the driveway driving down the street, I was sure she was going to stop me but she just waved. I drove to Fort Lauderdale and stayed in crappy hotels with week-long rentals and walked to the beach and worked temp jobs where I stood out in a broiling hot parking lot passing out free sunscreen while failing to apply any to myself. I had to quit that job as I was getting sun poisoning. Anyway, I went on a day cruise to the Bahamas and won several hundred dollars on the trip over. It was the Monday after Easter which is apparently a national holiday there and everything was closed except the casinos, so I didn’t see much and was not overly impressed. I really should go back as a grown up. My dad was hospitalized for heart surgery a couple weeks after I left giving me a great excuse to slink back home.
Gregg is there with Brentt. She says Gregg is doing much better health wise. She says she is monitoring his diet. Nene said Gregg being sick was hard for her because she’s not the nurturing kind. Nene talks about her fake divorce for her Bravo wedding as if she divorced him to keep him in line. That man is totally neutered.
Nene talks about social media and how brutal it is. She says she reads all of her comments. I can attest to this. Y’all know I think you are ridiculous for trolling these fools on social media. But that is your business. What pissed me off is when you troll them and say things that I have posted about, or tag me in your comments (good or bad) to bravolebrities. Because then I get blocked right along with your dumbasses and I can’t report on the stupid shit they say anymore. I am blocked my Nene and have never communicated with her in any fashion.
We finally get to RHOA and Nene says it is hard to work with women who are trying to get under your skin and snatch your wig off all the time. Well this is interesting. Kelly says that Nene is an alpha female and asks who is the one person on the show that is always trying to establish herself against you? She says, “Probably Kenya, she’s a tough one, she’s an alpha female as well. But we are in a great place right now. I am really happy for her. You know, she’s married.” Kelly asked if we will ever see him or get to know about him. Nene says, “I don’t know if you will get to know about him, but you will get a little glimpse of him. I’ve met him and I like him a lot. He’s a Leo man, and I’m married to a Leo man. So I like him a lot. I think he is good for Kenya and I think he has changed her a lot.” The obvious answer to the question was Kim, but Nene is getting really good at interviews. She totally turned to focus to complement Kenya and didn’t give Kim any of her airtime. I’m telling y’all these girls are trying HARD to keep Kenya next season. I really hope it works for our sake. I do think it is best for Kenya to move on.
Because they are in the Bahamas, Nene is getting a lot of airtime. Next they ask about Sheree’s prison BAE. Nene says, ” I think they are going strong. I am so happy for Sheree dating a prisoner. I think that is what I should be saying. Because as soon as I say something about it I get ‘You’re talking about my boyfriend!’ I think he is the perfect man for her. I do.” Kelly, Ryan and the entire audience laugh hysterically.
Ryan asks if she thinks she gets the respect she deserves for being one of the originals on the series. She says, “It’s hard to get the respect you deserve. They all come up with these sayings like, ‘I’m the new queen! I’m the this! I’m the that!’ So no they don’t really try to give me the respect. But it is what it is. I started the real housewives of Atlanta. I reached out to Sheree, Kim, Deshawn Snow for season one and I’ve been there so I am the original queen bee. Give me my respect!” The audience is eating this up.
Kelly says she is the most quotable. In her daily life she finds herself quoting her all the time. Ryan tells a story of Kim and Nene coming on his Atlanta radio show years ago and they got into a huge fight on air. Ryan said that was when he knew that the show was real.
Ryan says that the pit boss just called and said he is looking for a Gregg with two ‘G’s. Nene says Gregg as been in the casino since they landed. They have not left the casino. Why did he fly? He could have taken the casino boat right on over. Kelly says that he should gamble at the tables that are right by the pool, so she could be by the pool and he would be right there gambling. The Atlantis thing is really starting to interest me. I love gambling. Nene says she doesn’t think that would work for Gregg he wants to be in the casino with all the guys smoking and everyone is trying to win. She tells the audience that when they see Gregg they need to tap him on the shoulder and tell him to o to his room and see about his wife.
As time runs out Ryan says Nene is kicking off two tours, her one woman show and a girls night out. I have to say, Nene spoke in her normal voice for most of the interview and handled herself very well. She’s learning.
