NeNe Leakes and Vivica A. Fox were the guests on Watch What Happens Live tonight. It’s been a while since NeNe was on the show, so Andy started off with a game of catch up.
Has she been in touch with Cynthia Bailey since her separation? “Yes, I talked to her this morning. She’s doing good.” She also says she’s good with Peter and talks to him.
On rumors in the tabloids that she and Porsha Williams are feuding: “I’m not feuding with Porsha.” Andy asks “is she feuding with you?” NeNe says “She might be – her and her little job over there at Dish Nation. They always talk about me, but they should continue, I help their ratings.”
To be honest, Claudia Jordan really left no impression on me during her one-season stint on Real Housewives of Atlanta. She was just kind of there. Sure, she argued with NeNe Leakes on vacation, but I don’t feel like that was really about something. She was just jumping on the “I hate NeNe” bandwagon.
Then I was one of the few people who caught some episodes of her on The Next Fifteen– which I only watched to see my beloved TIffany Pollard aka New York back on TV. But anyway, Claudia was super arrogant and all of the cast ended up despising her. I have no idea who she thinks she is or what “industry experience” she was bragging about all the time, but she sure thinks a lot of herself. And she just went off on a super intense Instagram rent.
Sure, every show in the Real Housewives franchise is unique is, but there are certain elements that carry through in every series. Although each Housewife is unique, there is pretty much always one person in each show who is a real stickler for etiquette- and wants every single person to be aware of it.
These are the ladies who live by a set of social rules and love to remind the other cast members about it whenever they possibly can. You know who I’m talking about and there’s one of these girls in each series. Sometimes these ladies are just genuinely trying to share some guidance based on their past experiences. And other times these are the kind of women who just like to hear themselves talk about etiquette over and over again.
At this point, you’re not even a celeb if you don’t have your own emoji app. So it was only a matter of time before NeNe hopped on board the emoji train. Her new mobile app is called Nemoji-naturally, but she did things a little bit differently than the other celeb app entrepreneurs.
That was until they had that nasty breakup over Memorial Day Weekend. Kenya posted (and deleted) a photo of crushed up sunglasses with a lengthy caption that strongly implied that there was violence involved in the breakup. Then Matt posted (and also deleted) his own message about taking responsibility for went down in the relationship. I took this to mean that he was owning up to what Kenya posted about, but apparently that is not the case and he is calling out his ex.
Cynthia and Peachter, Peachter Happy Eater have been separated for months – possibly their divorce is already in motion. Peter has been living in Charlotte, NC and focusing on Sports One (and opening another bar), while Cynthia remains in Atlanta traveling and promoting her various businesses. After largely staying silent about his marital issues, yesterday Peter posted a cryptic rant on instagram which seemed directed at Cynthia!
And now NeNe has a new TV gig and this time it involves her whole family. Thankfully- there will not be any family drama though (well, hopefully) since the Leakes crew will be working together on the same team for this one.
We all know that being reality stars isn’t enough for most reality stars. They like to see their name and likeness on a bevy of products! This phenomenon goes double for any lady in a housewives franchise and triple if that housewife isn’t actually married.
As y’all are very aware, some of the go-tos are hair extensions, clothing lines, and fruity alcoholic beverages that my college age self would have thought was delicious because, I mean, mango moscato! Of course, the most savvy of housewives knows that the kitchen is the place to be, so it’s no surprise that Kenya Moore is cooking up something for her fans!
