NeNe Leakes sat down withAndy Cohen for an epic one-on-one interview on Watch What Happens Live. I have to say, NeNe was really candid, blunt, and endearing. And she's a wealth of information! I wish I could do a one-on-one and ply her for secrets.
First up, in case you weren't aware: NeNe definitely considers Real Housewives of Atlanta "her" show. And she's very protective of original Housewives in general. "I'm the star, I'm the boss. When people think of Atlanta Housewives, they think NeNe Leakes," she informed Andy.
Shockingly, NeNe says that Sheree used to be a really low-maintenance, and didn't wear extensions or makeup. "She was just this plain girl and had this really great life with this really great athlete." They were friends since Sheree's newlywed days and hung out all the time. NeNe was her sidekick at many a Falcons' games when Bob was still playing.
NeNe will also dish on her upcoming wedding spinoff, I Dream Of NeNe and the publicity stunt rekindled relationship she has with Kim Zolciack. Personally I'm hoping for some good ol' fashioned "Close your legs to married men, trashbox!" mayhem – maybe Sheree will be a surprise caller. One can only hope, right Boo?!
Reality Tea will be live-tweeting the episode, so please join us!
NeNe appears on WWHL at 8/9c. A video preview is below!
Defending Kim Kardashian, whose changing figure is constantly critiqued (I think people are questioning fashion choices more than anything!) while appearing on the The Rickey Smiley Morning Show, Phaedra reminded people, "You’re not supposed to be skinny and pregnant.”
"I’m a regular-sized woman. I’m all-natural. All this, God gave me, I grew it. And I mean, everybody’s not made to be skinny, everybody’s not made to be fat. So you gotta be happy [with] the skin you’re in. I’m advertising what’s real,” Phaedra added.
With all the bickering withPhaedra Parks, naturally we all assumed that's who NeNe wanted exiled to the Island of Lost Housewives. But in a preview of this Sunday's hour-long WWHL special, NeNe reveals it was actually Porsha Stewart she wanted fired!
"Yes, I did feel that Porsha at that time needed to leave the show because there was something – I'm a good judge of character; I've been blessed, child, I've been given a gift – and I kept feeling like Porsha and Kordell were not being real enough," NeNe admits.
You know what that means…a certain be-wigged one will be holding down the fort for Bravo's Tuesday night line-up. Will Kim Zolciak Biermann be vying for a schedule change for Don't Be Tardy? Hear that? It's the sound of a hundred wigs crying…
Andy Cohen took a look at some of the incriminating texts and deduced it as "It doesn't look like sexting to me!" We're still waiting to see the phone so we can judge for ourselves. In the meantime we'll have to console ourselves with Kenya's musings on her Bravo blog. Miss WHO-S-A is now accusing Phaedra of setting her and Apollo up at the reunion to ruin her reputation. Didn't Kenya bring up the texts first?
Porsha, with co-guest Vivica A Fox, pulled in 2 million viewers for the late-night talk show and it ranked as the highest rated episode of the season! That's a double-digit boost (or 43%) from last Sunday's episode!
