New York Fashion Week is in full swing and, as per usual, the reality TV stars never miss an opportunity to be photographed. Lucky us. 😉
Above: former (maybe?do I dare dream?) Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes was chosen by Malan Breton to close out his show, wearing a dress worth over ONE MILLION dollars. Why NeNe? “She embodies all women,” gushed Malan. “She really does. I think from my fanbase and other people that I know, she’s the one that’s constantly motivating women to be confident, to be who they are. And, you know, I love the Housewives franchise; I’m friends with so many of them. NeNe’s a very strong person and knows who she is. People admire her so much. For me, as a designer for women, it’s very important to me that women know who they are when they wear these pieces.”
NeNe, who likes to keep viewers guessing about whether she will return to RHOA or not each season, tweeted recently that “I wasn’t asked 2 b a full time housewife or part time but they got Sheree [Whitfield] & I think Kim Z.”
There were also rumors that Kim Zolciak might step back in as a cast member, but I don’t get why she would do that. Don’t Be Tardy seems like a way easier show to do. Unless of course, the money was better. And then there’s other original RHOA cast member Sheree Whitfield. She did return last season as a part time cast member, but that was not enough for me. I need the original ladies back on my show, but is it going to happen? NeNe shared the latest with her followers on Twitter.
Instead of pleading the fifth in regard to the tax lien story that’s been circulating about her, NeNe Leakes took to Twitter to make fun of the accusations. NeNe does not seem to be back down from her self-declared “I’m rich, bitch” stance.
In typical NeNe fashion, she circles around the accusations that she owes over $824K in back taxes from 2014. She doesn’t actually deny that she owes the money. Instead, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star just denies that she is broke. Just because NeNe may or may not owe the government money, that doesn’t mean that she doesn’t have some other cash to spare. So I’m willing to bet that there’s some truth to this story since she did not outright deny the story with her tweets.
It is typically so difficult to get the cast members in any Real Housewives franchise to come together for any reason, especially the strong willed women on Real Housewives of Atlanta. So I’m honestly pretty surprised to hear that all of the women from Real Housewives of Atlanta are uniting, well except for NeNe Leakes and the one season wonder Kim Fields, but that’s pretty much expected.
It has been a while since we have seen Porsha Williams with a man on Real Housewives of Atlanta, but it looks like that’s about to change. Which is not at all surprising since the show is filming right now, so it’s the perfect time to go public with a new relationship.
Public… via the above cutesy mysterious picture on Instagram, of course.
Or this could just be a photo of Porsha with a friend and I am looking way too much into it. But then again, she did write “I miss my #Him” in the caption with a heart emoji, so that seems pretty romantic, right!?
I find it painfully ironic that someone who is constantly claiming “I’m rich, bitch” is being threatened by the government, but apparently that is the case for Real Housewives of Atlanta alum NeNe Leakes. I wonder what her former (current?) costars think about this news since NeNe is known to brag about her wealth and use it as a point to win arguments with the ladies.
NeNe may be rich, bitch, but she apparently does not pay her taxes. According to Daily Mail, the IRS plans to seize NeNe’s assets if she doesn’t pay up $824,366.01 in back taxes from the year 2014. That is an awful lot of money to me, but if NeNe can live up to the game that she has talked, it really should not be a big deal for her to pay this off so hopefully she gets it together soon.
