Nene Leakes of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is sounding off on the second season drama of her show. Nene has seen her popularity decline this season amidst her behavior on the show, which shows her as bullying others and having an over-sized ego. In her interview with Essence, Nene talks about the meeting with her alleged father, why she and Kandi’s relationship turned sour and her relationship with the other Atlanta housewives.
ESSENCE.COM: So, Miss Nene, you finally met your alleged father, whose reception didn’t appear that warm. Have you two remained in touch?
NENE: It was warm enough because we are strangers. I wouldn’t expect him to hug me. He was very nervous with the cameras around. It took the producers about an hour to convince him to sign the release forms. I was hoping and praying that he didn’t, but I guess after they talked to him for so long he finally gave in and that’s why he wouldn’t allow us in the house. Had it just been me and my uncle he would have. I haven’t seen him since then, but I’ve spoken to him. And I still haven’t taken a paternity test but I believe he’s my father. At some point I can do a DNA test but there’s a part of me that doesn’t want to know the truth. I just needed to meet him and have some closure.
ESSENCE.COM: Understood. Let’s switch gears a bit. Since the sudden death of Kandi’s fiancé AJ, are the “Housewives” closer?
NENE: No, not really. Nobody has seen each other. I’ve talked to Sheree and Lisa and saw everyone at the funeral. We put our differences aside to be at the funeral so we could be there for Kandi because we aren’t that bitter. As far as us being friends, we won’t ever be friends. I’ve known Sheree the longest; I still talk to Lisa, but our relationships are what they are. Honestly, I think if we hadn’t been on this we wouldn’t be this bitter with one another, and it’s definitely made it a lot worse.
ESSENCE.COM: Do you think you ever gave Kandi a fair chance?
NENE: I feel like i did. On my behalf, I didn’t reach out to her when she first joined the cast to welcome her because that’s just not me. I wasn’t looking for anything; I figured like, if we get along we do and if we don’t, it is what it is. The first time Kandi and I met was never shown on the show. We had a couples’ night out where we went salsa dancing and had dinner with me and my husband, Lisa and Ed [Hartwell] and then Kandi and A.J. We had fun, but the viewers never got to see us having a good time.
Jon Gosselin and girlfriend, Hailey Glassman have broken up, according to Extra. A source close to the couple confirmed the news to Usmagazine. Just two weeks ago, both Jon and Hailey were spotted taking a romantic, PDA-filled carriage-ride in New York’s Central Park.
In a recent interview, Hailey revealed that she felt “emotionally abused” by Jon and that he is prone to “mantrums.” “I don’t know why I love him,” she said.
“They broke up the day she did that interview,” the source tells Us. “She told me it was gonna be over. She was just waiting to let him go.”
A couple of days ago, Jon announced that he was seeking spiritual counsel from Rabbi Shmuley Boteach. He admitted in a statement that he got “carried away by the challenges of fame” and yearns to “reconnect with my deeper, more spiritual, more altruistic self.”
While Jon is seeking spiritual help, we have a feeling that Kate Gosselin is having a funfilled day.
Update: According to Usmagazine.com, Rabbi Shmuley advised Jon to end his relationship with Hailey. “I have advised him to end it with Hailey,” Shmuley tells the Post. “It is unacceptable to be in a relationship when he is still married and has to take care of kids who are hurting. It is not a healthy relationship.”
In addition, Jon plans to proclaim his severed ties with Hailey during a speech at the West Side Synagogue on Sunday. “Jon will either be remembered as a man who cheats on his wife and is intoxicated by fame, or a man who has fought to redeem himself,” Shmuley says.
Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa had a special Halloween episode on Friday’s Live with Regis and Kelly, during which they spoofed some stars of reality television and pop culture.
Above is a pretty hilarious video of the two spoofing the now infamous public breakup between The Bachelor’sJason Mesnick and Melissa Rycroft. Jason famously dumped Melissa during the After The Rose special. Both Jason and Melissa are now both happily engaged to other people.
What’s a man to do when it seems the whole world is against him, including his own girlfriend? Well if you’re Jon Gosselin, you begin consulting with a Rabbi in an attempt to reconnect with your “deeper, more spiritual, more altruistic self.”
The 32-year-old Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad released a statement addressing some of his recent behaviors. “I am well aware that my behavior over the past few months has not always reflected my personal and religious values. I further accept that I have allowed myself to become somewhat severed from my own moral anchor and be carried away by the challenges of fame.”
This statements comes right after his girlfriend, 22 year old Hailey Glassman, revealed in a nationally televised interview that Jon is emotionally abusive to her.
Jon continues, “It is for this reason that I have endeavored of late to reconnect with my deeper, more spiritual, more altruistic self with regular study sessions and counseling with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, whose morality-centered-and-values-based advice, coupled with his profound commitment to fatherhood and family, I deeply respect.”
He finishes his statement by trying to appeal to the public. “I wish for the public to know my regret at having, at times, betrayed the moral principles that have always guided me. I am committed to making things right with Kate and especially my children. I ask you to please give me the opportunity to prove myself.”
The new season of The Bachelor only began filming weeks ago, but Jake Pavelkaalready believes he has met his future wife on the reality dating series.
Jake reveals to AccessHollywood during a group date for the show, “She is in Los Angeles right now. I have met Mrs. Pavelka.” The 31-year-old Texan says he has not officially chosen the woman he’ll marry yet, but believes she is among the 25 hopefuls currently vying for his love.
AccessHollywood reveals there will be three single mothers amongst the women competing, whom Jake calls, “The prettiest cast I have ever seen on the show.” As for whether Jake has any jitters about picking the wrong woman, reminiscence to whatJason Mesnick did on his season, Jakes reveals he has no fears.
“It doesn’t scare me. I am going to let my heart lead,” he says. ‘I think Jason Mesnick in the end wound up with the right decision. I understand they are engaged. I bumped into Molly a couple of weeks ago in the airport and she is just giddy over that guy. So he is walking on a good path.”
The new season of “The Bachelor” returns January 2010.
