Say whatever you want about the dynamic NeNe Leakes but she has taken her Real Housewives Of Atlanta stardom and catapulted it into a new career. NeNe has no time for the haters, but she does have some advice for any wannabe Ms. Leakes – starting with Be Yourself, because there is only ONE NeNe Leakes and don’t you forget it! Bloop!
Confronting rumors that she’s done with Housewives, NeNe admits she’s not ready to abandon RHOA and that she’s confident that she has used this “amazing platform” to the best of her advantage!
“It’s very difficult to be in the public’s eye. You get judged all the time. It’s bittersweet,” NeNe acknowledged. “I just try to remain NeNe and be as humble as I can.” Humble is not the word that comes to mind when I think NeNe… Just me?
So this is what we call a lunch time poll (anyone, anyone? Veronica?)…Say aliens land on the planet and say they’re going to blow it up in forty-eight hours the day you win the lottery, what would you do with the money? (I’d just slide that wad over to my father. After all, he is one of the top brokers in the state…) Wait, that’s not right. Let’s try again, simpler, this time. Say I asked you if you thought Kenya Moore was a thief–what would your answer be?
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star has been accused of stealing a few things in her day. She’s certainly stolen the hearts of several loyal fans. She’s also stolen the spotlight on several occasions. Anyone who has watched an episode of RHOA or caught a snippet of Celebrity Apprentice can attest to that! Speaking of Celebrity Apprentice, Kenya was recently accused of stealing competitor Vivica A. Fox’s cell phone during a challenge. There is certainly no love lost between those two. But did her sticky fingers take anything else during her time on the show?
“She’s hot and she’s cold…” that’s Cynthia Bailey‘s theme song right?! After burning their friendship contract, Cynthia says she still has love in her heart for NeNe Leakes and is “optimistic” they can move forward eventually.
The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star reveals all hope is not lost between the two former besties and Cynthia believes in that that someday over the rainbow when they can make amends – even though she believes NeNe and herself will never “be close friends again.”
I’m just gonna go ahead and say it – Claudia Jordan bores me and there’s something really disingenuous about her. The constant backpedaling hyperbole, coupled with bragging about how smart, accomplished, and career-savvy she is, without any of the behavior to back it up just irks me. Furthermore, anyone this bothered by Porsha Williams needs a priority realignment.
“I was not crying about Porsha or the fact that I’m biracial!” Claudia announces “There was such a buildup of so many things that it just took one little thing to push me over the top. I am not that emotionally invested in Porsha, and if you ever catch me getting there, please take me out to pasture and put me out of my misery!”
Real Housewives of Atlanta logged an increase this week, with 2.853 million viewers, but its numbers are down overall. Last season, 10 of the 25 episodes garnered over four million viewers. The season six average was 3.87 million. As of right now the season seven average is 3.16 million. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which draws a much smaller but steady audience, attracted 1.78 million viewers this week. Take a look below to see how your shows are doing.
“Some people love to criticize me for having an opinion about Phaedra and Apollo or anyone else on the show at this point, as if somehow it is never any of my business. Despite the fact that this is a show where we discuss our issues, thoughts, and observations of one another,” said Kenya. “We may not agree, but I am entitled to and allowed to provide my input. We may not agree, however, no one and nothing is off limits when the issues are put out there for public consumption.” I agree. Blogs about the episode are part of the HWs job.
Porsha Williams is paying Claudia Jordan no mind, but unfortunately Claudia can’t say the same about Porsha! Claudia has seemingly made animosity towards Porsha her storyline, but Porsha says she’s unbothered – except for Claudia attempting to get her in trouble with their boss Rickey Smiley.
“It was really irritating, actually,” the Real Housewives Of Atlanta extra says. “Every morning I come in for ‘Dish Nation,’ and we just want to have a good time. So it was a bit ‘extra,’ yeah.”
“Let me please clear up once and for all that I have no workplace drama nor have I had drama for CLAWdia,” Porsha continues. “Rickey and my Dish Nation co-workers have a wonderful relationship. The atmosphere is carefree and everyone displays professional behavior. It was a bit disheartening that she would try to bring that petty mess to my job.” Especially considering it’s Porsha’s only real job! #Demoted
Every season NeNe Leakes threatens to quit Real Housewives Of Atlanta, but this time it seems NeNe actually is ready to toss her peach in the trash because its rotten to the core! Complaining of producers who want drama, networks being desperate to grab ratings, and co-stars who will do anything for a TV job, NeNe says she’s embarrassed by how she has behaved in situations and felt pressured to act up!
“I am at a point where I don’t know how much longer I can stay in this situation,” NeNe admitted. “In the beginning when it started, I was having fun. I would have to say now I am not having as much fun.”
NeNe says viewers rarely see the real her, because their lives are overshadowed by drama between the girls and co-stars willing to do anything for screen time.
