NeNe Leakes is used to facing tough audiences – first on Real Housewives Of Atlanta, and now on Broadway in Cinderella, which debuted last night! Admitting that dealing with the negativity of Housewives has well-prepared her for criticism from critics and fans, NeNe also shares that her self-confidence has helped her shine through the haters!
“Working on ‘Housewives’ can be very negative at times. I think that’s the way (the producers) position the show. I’m the original — I’m the center of the show. Every season they want someone to come for me,” NeNe explains. “It’s tough. Broadway is more about the work and the art. It’s being creative. And every one wants to go out there and deliver and put on a good show. It’s very positive.”
Kim credits 310 Nutrition. “I love it. 310 Nutrition does it again.. 310 cleanse is magic! It’s the fastest way to drop a couple pounds I’ve ever seen. It’s not fat you drop… it is the junk in our gut!! And believe me we all have junk in our gut. I feel so much better, I stocked up for after Thanksgiving dinner!”
The People of the Instagram – like the Children of the Corn but way scarier – accused Kim of wearing a waist trainer and/or photoshopping her pictures. So the Don’t Be Tardy star showed the People of the Instagram a bare belly shot, adding, “Ain’t no waist cincher here!” Check out that selfie below.
Brandi Glanville apologized to Adrienne Maloof for surrogate-gate, because she doesn’t want it to be “awkward” when they run into each other. Uh-huh. We all know Brandi’s ulterior motive is that she needs to get to Adrienne before Lisa Vanderpump gets to her! This apology, where Brandi subtly attempted to drop hints to Adrienne that she was working on Lisa’s behalf, was another attempt of Brandi’s to join the chess team. Listen honey – stick to checkers.
Somewhere in the murky wilds between last season of RHOBH and this one, Brandi and Kim Richards became friends. Necessity is the mother of invention so the two people no one else wants to be friends with get stuck with each other. At least there were wigs!
On her support system: “While our show is about a group of women who socialize together, socializing does not equate to true friendship. True friends delight in the building up of one another rather than bashing each other. Throughout my tumultuous situation it has been Porsha’s sweetness, NeNe’s constant support and advice, coupled with Kandi’s steadfast friendship that has sustained and comforted me.”
Lipsa promises that she’ll deal with the crazy by trying to remain true to what’s important – herself! “I am going to be very authentic, be myself and stay grounded. Don’t react to anything, but be the better person and be supportive and empower the women,” she describes.
