Real Housewives of Atlanta star, NeNe Leakes recently published her new book, Never Make The Same Mistake Twice, which is already in stores. In an interview with WSBTV.com, NeNe talks about her unsteady relationship with fellow cast member Kim Zolciak, clears up rumors about her home being rented, and hints at the likelihood of leaving ATL.
Below are some of the excerpts from the interview-
Why is your relationship with Kim on the rocks?
We’re not real friends and we never have been. That’s what I think a lot of the viewers don’t know. We’re good associates and I don’t think associate is a bad word. Kim is in the associate category. My very good friends are not seen on the show.
Speaking of folks you’re not getting along with … let’s talk about the friction between you and Kandi, the newest cast member. What’s the beef between you two? I’m not really sure. I didn’t know Kandi before the show.
Were you a fan of the group Xcape? I don’t know the group Xscape. I think they may have done OK … some good music here and there.
They had some big hits Really? Well, I hadn’t paid attention. It’s been a long time since they’ve been on the scene. We’re just two women who are like oil and water. We just don’t mix. I’m not going to lose sleep or weight over it.
Have you talked to fellow housewife Lisa Wu-Hartwell after losing her home? I’ve spoken to Lisa … you know we talk all the time. It’s not a big deal. I’m outspoken, but I don’t ask people about their personal business. I know that Lisa’s doing just fine.
Are the rumors true that you rent your home?
What’s wrong with renting? Regardless of whether I rent or buy, I have to pay the bill. Nobody is giving me anything. In fact, this is a great time to rent.
So will you confirm whether you are renting?
I do not own the house that I currently live in. I’m doing a lease purchase.
Do you plan to stay in the house?
As a celebrity, I’m all over the place. I might end up leaving Atlanta.
What can we do to get you to stay?
You got to give me a check. I got to go where the checks are … I’m all over the place.
How do you respond to the stereotypes and criticism that you don’t represent housewives in Atlanta? I’m not trying to represent any one other than NeNe Leakes.
We reported on Friday that Jon and Kate Gosselin were involved in a heated argument that led the police to order Kate to leave her $1.1 million dollar home.
According to USmagazine, Kate returned to the house to be reunited with her kids and Jon. Even though they chatted briefly, the tension in the air was apparent. The kids didn’t look happy and one of the sextuplets was seen wiping her eyes.
Not long after she arrives, Jon drove away. The estranged couple have said they will trade off living in their estate depending on who has supervision of the children.
“It was a miscommunication. Kate said she was coming home, and I said, ‘Well, it’s my time to spend with the kids.’ I don’t come home when she’s with the kids, and vice versa — and that’s how it’s supposed to be,” Jon explained, adding that Kate tried to “cry it up” to convince the cop to let her stay.
In an interview, Jon said Kate didn’t approve of the nanny Stephanie Santoro (a 23-year-old single mother who also works as a “shooter girl” selling shots at local club Legends). Last week, we reported that the pair were caught canoodling.
“I guess she didn’t agree with my babysitting,” he admitted.
At this point, these two really need to put aside their childish attitudes and focus on the kids.
In the aftermath of a very public argument with wife Kate Gosselin, Jon Gosselin is now speaking out on what led to the cops being called. Jon says police made Kate leave their $1.1 million PA home Thursday night after a heated argument.
“She tried to come home yesterday, and I wouldn’t let her in the gate, and I guess she called the police,” Jon tells Splash News. “The police came and said it was a civil matter.”
Jon continues, “An officer pulled me aside and I said, ‘This has never happened before and I’m just trying to spend time with my kids and she’s [Kate] gonna have to leave.’”
Jon says Kate “tried to ‘cry it up’ with the cops and it didn’t work and they said, ‘You have to leave.’
“It was a miscommunication. Kate said she was coming home, and I said, ‘Well, it’s my time to spend with the kids,’” Jon goes on. “I don’t come home when she’s with the kids, and vice versa — and that’s how it’s supposed to be.”
When asked about the cause of the fight, Jon admits it had to do with his choice of babysitter. “I guess she didn’t agree with my babysitting,” Jon says of Kate. The babysitter in question is Stephanie Santoro, the same woman Jon is alleged to have slept with over a week ago.
I take it this is what happens when a child Jon decides it’s time to rebel against his mother Kate. Something tells me this will not end well.
According to RadarOnline, cops were called to Jon and Kate Gosselin’s house last night after an argument between the two. The argument is said to have been over Stephanie Santoro, the nanny who was on duty that day. This is the same nanny that is alleged to have been intimate with Jon just over a week ago.
The above picture is of Kate crying after having to leave her house last night.
A source close to the situation reveals, “Kate showed up at the house unexpectedly. It’s Jon’s scheduled time to be there with the kids.” Jon was inside the home and wouldn’t let Kate in.
Kate then reportedly started screaming at Jon at the fence outside their PA home about his relationship with Stephanie – the nanny hired by Jon, and not Kate. Cops were called during the screaming match but no arrests were made.
The ‘Househusbands of Hollywood’ (from left): Darryl M. Bell, Grant Reynolds, Billy Ashley, Danny Barclay, and Charlie Mattera.
Ready or not, here they come! Another reality TV show similar to Bravo’s “Real Housewives” is the “Househusbands of Hollywood” on FOX reality channel premiering Aug. 15 at 9 p.m. The new show will feature five stay-at-home men who run the house while their wives head to work.
Househusbands of Hollywood will feature former L.A. DodgerBilly Ashley; aspiring actor Danny Barclay; “A Different World” star Darryl M. Bell, who’s married to “Cosby Show” actress Tempest Bledsoe; onetime “Gentleman Bandit” star Charlie Mattera, and Grant Reynolds, husband of “Good Day LA” anchor Jillian Reynolds.
Grants says, the main difference between the “Housewives” and the “Househusbands” is that the guys are actually all friends. In addition, instead of the usual drama the show will focus on raising a family.
According to the show’s producer, the purpose of the show isn’t to create disasters but to capture these men trying to prevent them.
Initially, both Tempest and Daryl were hesitant about being a part of the show but changed their minds once they realized the positive message the show was trying to convey to viewers. “It’s a good time to look at these men for who they really are,” she said. “For a man to stay at home and take care of his child, that is the most difficult job that there is, and I think it’s time to give them credit for doing that.
“Reality shows usually is a lot of fighting,” she added, “but it’s nice to see a show that’s lighthearted and good-spirited and you don’t have to sit down and cringe every time you look at the screen.”
After several years of reality show train wrecks, I am amazed that people are still willing to display their lives on national TV.
The alleged chokegate involving Nene Leakes and Kim Zolciak of The Real Housewives of Atlanta has been making recent headlines. Kim filed a police report back in April, accusing Nene of choking her during an argument.
On Wednesday, NeNe claimed Kim was not an innocent victim in the alleged assault, in which Kim claims NeNe “choked her out.” NeNe appearing on Atlanta’s Q1000 radio station said of the fight. “Kim is trying to make it seem like, ‘I need an apology. I’m so hurt’.”
Kim is now admitting to OK! that she did “smack NeNe’s finger” — but insists she did not strike out first. Kim continues, “I was not pleased with the stuff that’s coming out her mouth, but as far as putting your hands on somebody, absolutely not. I didn’t touch her first.” Umm how old are these women again?
Adds Kim, “She put her hand in my face after she choked me the first time, and I smacked her finger out of my face.” This fight was allegedly taped for the show, so it’s safe to say we will be seeing it on Bravo in the near future.
In other news, Nene’s broke husband Gregg Leakes‘s legal records are making its rounds. According to a public search, Gregg has been involved in 17 legal cases in recent years. These cases range from non payment of child support , receiving stolen propery, to writing bad checks.
People with skeletons might want to think twice before choosing to appear on reality shows. Just a thought.
