Real Housewives of Atlanta

It seems Nene Leakes has feelings too. Who knew?

Following a public backlash for the second year in a row due to her behavior both on and off the Real Housewives of Atlanta, Nene is now admitting the negative press can be “hurtful” at times.

During a recent interview with Zap2It, Nene was asked how she feels about all the bad press surrounding her. “Some of the press is hurtful, because I’m a human like anybody else,” said the Nene. “So, some of it is hurtful. And some of it, when I know it’s a flat out lie, I’m like whatever, it doesn’t really matter. But, some of the press is hurtful and I do read some of it, sometimes.”

Nene goes on to add that she has learned a lot about herself since doing the show. What has she learned you ask? Well, mostly that other people are very judgmental and that she’s a really strong woman.

“Being on the show, I’ve learned that people are very judgmental, very, very judgmental,” she says. “And I’ve learned also that I have very thick skin. I’ve learned that I’m a really strong woman. I have really gone through some things and really come out on top. So, I am a strong woman. At the end of the day, when I go home I sleep very well.” Poor Nene, always the victim.

In other Nene news, the NYDailyNews is reporting that Nene might be getting the boot from the Real Housewives of Atlanta. The reason? Apparently, both Bravo and Andy Cohen have had it up to here with her “extra-grande ego.”

An insider reveals that Andy’s relationship with the Nene has become strained due to her “disrespectful” and “arrogant behavior.” Another issue is Nene’s overly aggressive behavior toward costar Kim Zolciak, as Kim had to file a police report two years ago after she alleged Nene choked her during an argument.

“She’s alienated all of the women other than Cynthia [Bailey],” the source adds. “So, as of now, the plan is to “phase” Leakes out within the first two to three episodes of season four, which begins in October.”

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON NENE’S COMMENTS & THE NYDAILYNEWS STORY? DO YOU FEEL BAD FOR NENE?

Buckle up your seat-belts as Nene Leakes, star of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, graces the latest cover of Rolling Out magazine and she doesn’t hold back when it comes to dishing on some hot topics.

In the mag, Nene responds to Sweetie Hughes recent comments in which she stated Nene was ruining her life. Nene also talks about the Donald, her impending divorce, dating, her experience on the upcoming Celebrity Apprentice and her thoughts on returning for the 4th season of the RHOA.

Excerpts from Nene’s interview below -

ON SWEETIE: “Sweetie is not even a housewife, nor is she a celebrity. I said on the show that Kim was treating her like a slave, and that was my opinion. As a black woman, [if you] allow any woman of any ethnicity to say to you, ‘You black b—-, go and get my cigarettes,’ either you are a slave or you have a problem. And the Free Sweetie campaign had nothing to do with me. Rickey Smiley is a comedian and he did that [as] a complete joke, and people are just laughing about it, and Sweetie is taking it seriously.” Nene then delivers a verbal backhand: “I’m not ruining her life. What kind of life does she have anyway?”

ON HER PENDING DIVORCE: “[When] going through a divorce, you need to be around people who love you and care for you, and there were times that I really didn’t want to talk to people, just because I was failing in that area. I don’t think it’s anything that I did. It’s just after 14 years, we just grew apart.”

ON DATING: Nene reveals she’s now back on the market and looking for Mr. Right. She wants a man who is “confident in who he is, and stays in his lane and not over here in mine,” she says. “He has to be spiritual, he has to have swagger, and it doesn’t matter if he’s black or white.” Mr. Right must also have his own money. “I’m not in it for the money, but, if I date a man he has to have his own money. I think it’s only fair,” she states. “If I’m out here making money, what in the hell am I going to do with a guy who’s not making money? Like, that’s not even cool. I don’t want to take care of a guy.”

ON CELEBRITY APPRENTICE: Nene reveals her much anticipated appearance on “Celebrity Apprentice,” will be nothing like what you’ve seen of her on Real Housewives of Atlanta. “Celebrity Apprentice wasn’t a great experience for me; it was a very hard show to do. We shot the show in literally 45 days. It’s a big show with 16 celebrities (you have eight guys and eight girls), as opposed to working with five. The hours are bananas; you work six days a week, and you rise at 4 a.m. and you get in at midnight. The earliest was 10 p.m.; but sometimes it was 1 a.m.”

ON DONALD TRUMP: Working with Donald Trump was great, however. “Donald is great; he’s very real in his own type of way. He’s not the easiest person to get to know right away,” NeNe recalls. “It takes some time to get to know him. I found him very cool, and I must say he really likes me. You know he likes women who are really tall. And he’s had some brown sugar.” She’s also open to dating the married Donald. “Yeah, I would date Donald Trump … let’s hook it up. I met some really important people through Mr. Trump, he has that swagger.”

ON RETURNING TO REAL HOUSE WIVES OF ATLANTA: “I can’t say today that I want to be a housewife next season, I don’t know that. Maybe a month from now, I will feel different. I want to have the opportunity to talk to the producers to see where we can go as far as the editing, and as you know, we don’t have any control over that, we just shoot the show and they show what they want to show.”

It’s a boy!

Just as the psychic predicted on the first season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kim Zolciak, 32, is indeed having a baby boy with NFL beau Kroy Beirmann, 25.

Kim made the revelation on her twitter page yesterday after seemingly tweeting the sex of her baby by error. “I haven’t had the baby yet!! I’m due in June! But he is getting big in my belly ;)” tweeted Kim.

Realizing she had revealed the gender of her baby, she later tweeted — “Ya all are right!!! I can’t believe it I messed up tweetin YES @biermann71 and I are happy to announce we are a having a baby BOY!!!” Congrats to Kim and Kroy. She is due in June.

In other news, today is the Oscars and yes Camille Grammer, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, will be helping to co-host the pre-show for the CNN network.

This is an open post, so please feel free to comment about Kim, Camille, the Oscars or whatever is on your mind!


Sweetie Hughes, better known as Kim Zolciak’s long suffering assistant on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, is finally breaking her silence on the recent controversies surrounding her.

For starters, Sweetie was the so called “reason” for the big tour bus fight that ensued this season involving former BFFs Kim and Nene Leakes. Nene made a big stink on the bus, claiming she had a problem with the way Kim treated Sweetie, only to turn around and call Sweetie a slave to her face – more than once.

Since the airing of that episode, Sweetie continues to feel the brunt of Nene’s words and actions as Atlanta radio host Rickey Smiley launched a “Free Sweetie” campaign on Feb. 16 after Nene called his morning show.

“They’re doing it for Black History Month, and it offends me,” Sweetie tells Life & Style. “They have pastors calling into the radio station and praying for me. They’ve taken it too far. NeNe’s jealous that she’s not as close to Kim as I am. I’ve known Kim for 11 years, since I was a kid. Kim’s a great friend to me. NeNe’s traumatizing my life. She’s bringing hell to it.”

Kim also spoke to the mag about the Sweetie situation. “I never want to speak to NeNe again. My assistant Sweetie is so upset about the whole thing, she’s beside herself,” Kim tells Life & Style. “NeNe has problems.”

In other Kim news, we now have more of her interview with Life & Style magazine, in which she talks about her unborn baby and “amazing” sex life with 25-year-old dummy baby’s daddy to be Kroy Biermann.

“The baby’s fine — no complications or problems, thank God. I was pretty nauseous in the first trimester,” Kim tells the mag. “Now I drink Perrier all day — it’s the best ever and keeps me from the nausea. But, I am exhausted. We just went to Anguilla for 10 days, and I slept my butt off!”

And how much weight has Kim gained? “I don’t step on the scale, but I’d say I’ve gained about 20 pounds. I gained 30 with my first and 28 with my second.”

When it comes to how pregnancy has affected her sex life, Kim dishes to Life & Style: “It’s amazing! We’re in a really good place. Kroy loves me pregnant. I don’t remember my ex-husband being that into it, but Kroy loves it. He tells me I’m so beautiful. He’s really cute about it, and it definitely makes it a lot easier on me.” Good to know Kim. Good to know.

In today’s Nene Leakes is not going to be happy about this one news, Kim Zolciak graces the latest cover of Life & Style magazine!

The six months pregnant Real Housewives of Atlanta star dons a bikini to show off her growing baby bump. Kim reveals to the mag that she is drama-free and happier than ever during the bump-revealing photo shoot with Life & Style on Feb. 20.

Kim also opens up about her belly, her baby’s daddy to be Atlanta Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann, 25, whom she’s been dating since May, and the possibility of another baby in their future.

“I’ll be 33 when I have this baby, and I’m more in touch with my body now,” she tells Life & Style. Kim, who already has two daughters, Brielle, 13, and Ariana, 9, from a previous marriage, says she’s gained about 20 pounds so far. “I’m definitely eating a lot more now than I did with my girls.” Not that she — or her man Kroy — minds a little extra weight. “Kroy loves me pregnant. I don’t remember my ex-husband being that into it, but Kroy loves it. He tells me I’m so beautiful.”

Following nearly 10 months of dating, Kim reveals she and Kroy are finally moving in together in Atlanta, just in time for their newborn’s June arrival. “We’ll be moved in before the baby is born,” she says.

So are wedding bells in the near future? “Kroy’s perfect for me, but we’re not engaged,” Kim tells Life & Style. “If we get married, Kroy would like to have one more child, and I want one too!”

You can read more about Kim’s pregnancy in the latest issue of Life & Style magazine. A full shot of Kim’s growing belly is below -

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S REUNION EPISODE?

Following slams by Nene Leakes, not once but twice, Star Jones is finally responding to her Celebrity Apprentice costar.

If you recall, Nene recently went on the Wendy Williams Show and stated, “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.”  Star is now telling her side to Black Voices and below is what she had to say-

“This actually saddens me. Black women trashing other black women all for the sake of personal aggrandizement. When the cast was first announced, I was both excited and concerned. Excited that this was going to be the most diverse cast in prime-time reality programming and concerned because the media immediately started the drumroll of “can this many black women get along?” The four of us actually chatted about the unique opportunity we had to influence the perception of black women and the way we interact. We each brought something different to the show, so I had hoped we could avoid falling into the typical “snake charmer in your face loud bombastic black woman” stereotypical box that was expected. Some of us were more successful at our quest than others.”

In other news, the YBF blog is reporting that Nene and her Real Housewives of Atlanta costar Phaedra Parks went at it during a local radio interview on Wednesday.

The smackdown occurred on the “Rickey Smiley Morning Show” when Nene called in to talk about Star and Phaedra.  Following Nene’s trash talking, Phaedra then called in to the show and a back-and-forth ensued.  Below are some of the “highlights” -

Nene On Phaedra being an Equestrian:

“You are sitting on the same show I’m sitting on so your attorney work must not be working out for you. And as far as her being an equestrian, I don’t know that for sure. But she was raised in the projects of Athens and they didn’t ride horses. They barely drove cars through there… If I wanted to ride a horse I could have rode one.  I decided to drive a car.”

Nene on Phaedra Being a Lawyer:

“Now she can be a class act act or whatever you want to call it….And I don’t care if she went to school for 20 years, you end up on the same show I am on. And I do more than you do and make more money than you so what’s next?”

Phaedra On Growing Up in Athens and NeNe’s Attitude:

“I don’t have any issues with NeNe. I did not grow up in the ghetto cause there are no ghettos is Athens (Georgia). You have forgotten a lot about high school. You have forgotten a lot about your hometown. And from what I understand, you say you are from New York but you’ve been in Athens since you were three years old. So it’s not amazing to me that you would forget most things.”

The ladies reportedly went back and forth before one of the female members of the radio show cut off the conversation.
