Appearing on the Wendy Williams Show on Tuesday, Nene discussed her “divorce,” her plans to “quit” the RHOA, while also slamming once again her Celebrity Apprenticecostar Star Jones.
When it comes to her divorce with Gregg Leakes, Nene told Wendy: “The divorce is pending. I did file for divorce. My happiness is everything.” Perhaps the divorce is really happening this time as Nene also revealed Gregg “actually just moved out.”
Nene was also asked about wanting to leave the RHOA after the current season, during which Wendy brought up Kim Zolciak’s comments stating Nene can’t leave the Bravo hit show because they’re all under contract. NeNe responded, “Contracts can be broken.”
And finally, when it comes to her upcoming appearance on NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice, NeNe denied rumors that stated she was acting like a diva on the set. “Everybody has to be there at a certain time so that’s not possible,” Nene quipped.
When asked about her relationship with fellow Apprentice starStar Jones, Nene did not mince her words! “I’m not feeling Star Jones. I gave her a chance when she got there, but Star is a trip. She’s very special. I wouldn’t spit on Star if she was on fire,” said Nene.
Star’s response? A twitter follower asked her what she thinks of NeNe, Star replied, “I don’t.” Star also made the following tweets within the past 24 hours -
“Lesson learned long ago: “Never get into a PIG fight…because 3 things happen: You get tired, you get dirty and only the pig has fun!”
“Ignorance in pretty clothes and high heeled shoes is still ignorance…“There is nothing more frightful than ignorance in action.””
Below is an NBC promo of Nene on Celebrity Apprentice, which premieres March 6. Part 1 of the RHOA reunion airs this Sunday on Bravo.

Following her tour bus fight with costar Kim Zolciak and shameful display in Miami, Nene has received criticism for her behavior on the show. And now in her latest Bravo blog, Nene attempts to defend herself, while also letting her fans know she is actually the victim of her costars. According to Nene, all of her fellow housewives have “formed an alliance” against her with the exception of Cynthia who Nene feels is the only one who “has a brain of her own.” Oh the irony.
Excerpts from Nene’s blog below -
There are so many issues I could address over the past few weeks with these ladies, but I choose not to because it’s easy to attack and judge! Those of you who have formed an opinion, nothing I say will change that! For those of you who love me, you will continue to do so. These ladies have apparently formed an alliance except for Cynthia who happens to have a brain of her own. I don’t have the energy nor do I have the time to stoop to their level of ignorance. I understand that everything about me is under attack. From the color of my polish to the style of my shoes because I’m a threat! I refuse to follow the leader. I am the leader! I have a take charge attitude so that makes me fierce competition… I’m a star in the sky so I’ll just stay up high because through it all, I’m still standing! Thanks for all the comments, the good and the bad.
Allrighty. Whatever helps Nene sleep at night. Meanwhile, things between Nene and Kim continues to deteriorate as the two, well mostly Nene, attacked each other on twitter Sunday night.
While Kim appeared on WWHL on Sunday, Nene wrote numerous tweets calling her a “trashy whore” and claiming she plays the victim role. Andy read one of the tweets to Kim on the show, after which she said Nene needs to leave her alone and worry about her warrants.
However, the most notable tweet from Nene came when a fan asked, “What u think abt Kim being preggo?” Nene tweeted back, “3 kids by 3 different daddys & no husband is nothing 2 b all happy about.” Ouch. Oddly enough, Nene has made the same claim at least three times in the past week alone on twitter, while Kim has yet to deny it. Nene has also yet to deny Kim’s claims that she has warrants.
And finally, the finale episode of the RHOA shattered all kinds of records for Bravo. With over 4.37 million viewers tuning in, it was the most watched Housewives episode ever in the history of the network. But even before the finale aired, RHOA had surpassed the Real Housewives of New Jersey to once again become the highest rated housewives series, averaging 3.5 million viewers per episode this season.
The Atlanta housewives reportedly received $100,000 each for season 2, and $150,000 each for their 3rd season. It’s safe to assume that amount will increase even more for season 4. Even safer to assume there will be a 4th season.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON NENE’S BLOG AND TWEETS? ARE YOU SURPRISED THE RHOA IS THE HIGHEST RATED FRANCHISE?
Following 16 episodes, the third season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta ended last night with a wedding that took place despite all the odds and opposition from many. In life, there are times of uncertainty and a little thing called a red flag. And when it comes to a wedding, arguably the biggest commitment one will make in their lifetime, it’s usually not a good idea to go through with it when certain red flags pop up, such as -
When multiple people ask, “Are you sure?” and let you know that you can still run on your wedding day.
When your 11-year-old daughter is the only one in support of your “union.”
When you can’t stop drinking before your wedding ceremony.
When your mother and sister try to sabotage your wedding by hiding your marriage license.
Or when you and your sister have a breakdown, shedding none tears of joy on your wedding day.
If you find just one of the above to be the case, canceling or postponing your wedding is likely the best way to go. And if you find yourself in a peculiar situation in which all 5 of the above apply to you, Reality Tea strongly advises wiping off your make up, taking off your heels, and running for the hills, without ever looking back. Non refundable wedding deposits be darned!

Following a very successful 3rd season, regaining its title as the highest rated Bravo housewives franchise, tonight marks the finale of the Real Housewives of Atlanta!
On the episode titled ‘The Bride and the Doom,’ season 3 closes with Cynthia’s wedding rapidly approaching, but jitters and dramas surround the big event. Elsewhere, Phaedra returns to work; Sheree’s acting ability is sorely tested during a movie audition; and Kandi approaches Kim about song-related finances.
According to a NY Post report that came out last July, days after the wedding, Cynthia Bailey’s BFF Nene Leakes supposedly held up the wedding for 45 minutes when she barged into Cynthia’s bridal suite and demanded her hair and makeup be done. The Post added the drama did not end there as Kim then got into an argument with boyfriend Kroy when she caught him checking out “a hot redhead.” It will be interesting to see if any of these stories make the finale episode tonight.
And finally, wedding photos of Cynthia and Peter Thomas are below. The super sized 1 hour 30 minute episode airs at 10/9c on Bravo.
Watch What Happens Live – On tonight’s show, Andy Cohen will throw a live baby shower for the pregnant Kim Zolciak. Joining Kim will be her baby daddy to be/NFL player Kroy Biermann.
A preview clip of tonight’s episode is below!

In two separate new interviews, Cynthia Bailey and hubby Peter Thomas are telling it all, discussing issues such as a prenup and their financial woes.
First up is Peter, who slams all of Cynthia’s Real Housewives of Atlantacostars in an interview with UpTown magazine. In the interview, Peter also discusses signing a prenup as well as Cynthia’s lost investment in his now closed restaurant. Excerpts from Peter’s interview is below -
ON THE MONEY-LENDING INCIDENT
As much as I appreciate what she’s done, it probably came across to everybody that she put up all this money to help me build my restaurant. No. Initially, she put up $10,000. Uptown [Restaurant and Lounge] cost several hundred thousand dollars—$10,000 couldn’t buy the silverware and the plates at Uptown.
SHE CAN’T TELL ME NO
If I need her to do something for me again, she better step up. That’s part of her duty as a wife. Because she’s never gonna call on me and I say no—never. It’s my duty as a husband to provide whatever support to [help] her go forward. The show that I’m on is called Atlanta Housewives, not Atlanta Husbands. I’m not getting paid to be on the show. But I have to do it to support my wife. So I just gotta bite my lip, swallow my spit, and call it a day.
IS CYNTHIA GETTING HER MONEY BACK?
If that’s the last thing I do before I die, I’ll make sure that she gets her money back.
IN CASE IT DOESN’T WORK OUT…
I do respect that what’s hers belongs to her. I have nothing to do with it. And what’s mine is mine. We have a prenup. But if I build something and she was by my side while I was building it, that’s definitely for us.
ON ANDY COHEN AND THE OTHER HOUSEWIVES I say anything I f—ing feel, because I don’t feel I need to answer to anybody but God. People are going on Andy Cohen’s show and being all careful—I don’t give a f-ck. If they ever put me on that sh–, I’m gonna say exactly how I feel… If they say, “What do you think about the other Housewives?” I’m gonna say, “I can’t stand Phaedra’s ass. I think Kim is crazy as f–k. Nene has a big-ass mouth, okay? And Sheree’s not cute! She thinks she’s cute, but she’s not cute.” And this is ON the record. The only one I like is Kandi, and she’s too soft. That’s why she got played with Kim. And that’s how I truly feel.”
Wowzers! Peter also reveals he has some new business endeavors in the works including opening a new bar called Bar One in March 2011, and starting “The Lifestyle Conference, which will take place Memorial Day weekend in Montego Bay.”
Cynthia also gave an interview to Black Voices during which she briefly touched on her financial woes with Peter.
BV: Wait. You still asked him whether he was going to give you the money back? CB: Yes! I just asked him yesterday. I don’t know when I am getting that money back, but he’s going to have to give me something.
BV:A lot of people think you should work out your financial challenges before tying the knot. Many people believe a relationship can’t last with something so major causing disagreements before a wedding. CB: When we started the process, our wedding wasn’t so expensive that we couldn’t do it. The more involved in the planning I was the more I wanted it. Who wants to go through tastings and menus and then go to the courthouse? I’ve never been married before. I just wanted it. It’s mine to want. We just had problems in the end.

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes continues to have a bad week. First came major backlash from fans of the show following her behavior on the latest episode, and now a not so flattering interview by one of her stepsons.
In the interview with RadarOnline, 34-year-old Damian Leakes, who happens to be one of Gregg Leakes’ five children pre-Nene, is claiming Nene disowned him and his other siblings. And it gets even better as Damian now wants he and his forgotten siblings to get their own reality show.
“We are the forgotten side of the family. There’s so much talent with the kids he left behind,” Damian said of not being included or acknowledged on the Bravo hit show. “She knows us and she knows we have issues from about 15 years ago and it’s time to address them. She’s become a household name with our last name, but we’re non-existent.”
Gregg’s children include Damian and his twin brother Daryl, Katrina, 27; Dexter, 25; and Denton, 21. Damian also confirms that Gregg did indeed meet Nene while she was stripping at a strip club in Atlanta near his father’s workplace. “No one really knew about her stripper past. That alone was a selling point for her to say ‘get rid of them because they met me at the strip club,’ Damian said.
Damian goes on again to pitch his own reality show. “We need some closure,” Damian stated. “We need to know what did we do to cause this? What did we do to get Gregg to say ‘I’m going to abandon this family! I’m not going to try to be your friend or work with you or understand!’ We knew she [NeNe] didn’t like us– maybe he had too many kids. A TV show could be building process for Gregg and his kids because no one ever knew he had kids. There’s a lot of healing that needs to go on and a lot of animosity.”
Damian bashes Nene some more. “I think [Nene] has a lot to do with the crumbling of our family,” Damian added.“We think of her as selfish and a center-of-attention freak. She wants all of the attention and this is before a camera ever got on her.”
Moving right along. For the few fans of the show who are not aware ofCynthia Bailey’s marital status, she did indeed get married to Peter Thomas.
It was all over the press last year when the wedding took place in July. In fact, we also wrote about it. The pictures however have been kept under wraps, that is until now. Essence magazine plans to publish the wedding images in their next issue while the latest issue of Life & Style magazine, out on newsstands today, also has some exclusive photos of Cynthia on her big day. Two of those are below.
And finally, Sunday’s episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta was its highest rated in the history of Bravo. Over 3.43 million viewers tuned in! And once again, RHOA is the highest rated housewives franchise, beating out the former leader – RHONJ. Drama does sell indeed.

“Tune n tonite 2 c who gets the biggest Hater Award. Was so many it was hard 2 decide. help me pick the winner,” tweeted Cynthia Bailey yesterday.
“Right” was NeNe Leakes’s reply to her good friend Cynthia, who didn’t respond to her by the way. “In the fashion industry, they’re always looking for the next young model so that’s going to be tough for Cynthia because young ain’t on her side right now,” were Nene’s exact words about her good friend Cynthia following her runway walk. Dear Nene, me thinks Cynthia was referring to you as well, or at least she should have been.
Moving right along to last night’s episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, which wasn’t the finale as that airs next week.
The episode beings with the continuation of the tour bus ride from hell. Kim and Nene continue to argue as Nene also continues to make all kinds of threats. “I’ll toss you out the window,” threatens Nene as I wonder why the two Bravo housewives who claim to be victims of domestic violence, and advocate against it, aka Nene and Taylor Armstrong, are always the first ones to threaten violence. Funny how that works.
The tour bus finally touches base in Miami as the other ladies anxiously await their arrival. If only they knew that Hurricane Nene was heading their way. “You need to grow up and you need to know how to handle a conversation like an adult,” continues Nene as she yells at Kim back on the bus. “It’s so childish and immature,” adds the 42-year-old Nene. Oh the irony. I can assure you if you were to look into a dictionary at this very moment for the word irony hater, Nene’s photo will pop up!
