Reality star alum and actress NeNe Leakeswill get to add some fabulosity to this year’s NBC-TV’s annual new year’s eve festivities. The diva will hobnob with the likes of Carson Daly as part of a comedy panel he hosts, “New Year’s Eve With Carson Daly” that will take place at New York City’s famed Times Square according to US Weekly.
NeNe, who after seven seasons, left the reality show that helped put her name up in lights, “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” grew tired of the negativity that seemed to take over the show. While Nene was a ‘housewife’ and thereafter, she has always maintained a pretty hectic career schedule. She had a recurrent role on the defunct sitcom “Glee,” was a series regular on NBC-TV’s “The New Normal,” acted in a couple of Broadway productions, was a contestant on “Dancing With the Stars,” and will even be a judge on the upcoming ABC-TV revival 1950’s game show “To Tell the Truth.” In addition to performing, NeNe also manages to oversee her fashion line, The Nene Leakes Collection for the Home Shopping Network and there is also a jewelry line as well.
Jeff Lewis and Vicki Gunvalson both know a little bit about Flipping Out! They’ve also both been on reality TV since Bravo was a channel people were still trying to find in their expanded cable package. So, they know a thing or two about how this game works, and how to work it when the chips are down. This begs the question: Are Andy Cohen’s OG’s joining forces now that Vicki’s future on the Real Housewives of Orange County has come under scrutiny?
RHOC served up an exhausting season of watching Vicki defend her lying sack o’ shizz boyfriend Brooks Ayers over his claims of “fighting cancer” – followed by Vicki claiming she was “duped! duped, I say!” when the truth (at least about Brooks faking his medical documents) came to light. As a result, Vicki has some serious ground to make up with viewers who claim she is also a liar. But can Vicki’s besmirched reputation ever be restored to its former bed-wetting glory?

When the former Real Housewives of Atlantaco-star NeNe Leakesappeared on the daytime chatfest, The View, last month, she felt a chill in the air and according to her, the strongest breeze was coming from co-host Raven-Symoné’s direction. The often opinionated statuesque diva, who recently appeared on Bravo’sWatch What Happens Liveshow told Andy Cohen that all of The View’s female cohosts were “not kind” to her. Even though NeNe Ophelia Leakes is claiming, the chatty co-hosts guzzled hateration during her segment, Raven-Simone offered her an ‘apology’ viaE! Newsbut really doesn’t understand, how the celeb felt she was given the side-eye.
NeNe, who is certainly not known for finessing her words, spilled the tea-hee-hee on what went on during her guest segment on the popular ABC-TV show. The show’s producers asked NeNe to appear on the show to primarily promote her co-starring role on the Broadway hit, Chicago. The segment got off to a rocky start with Joy complaining how NeNe’s jewelry injured her shoulder, as she walked out to greet each of them. When the women discussed marriage, Joy threw NeNe for a loop when she asked why she divorced her husband Gregg in the first place, viewers could see discomfort written all across her over-made-up face. In true NeNe form however, she snapped back, informing especially Joy, how she had to teach Gregg a lesson. “What kind of lesson,” Joy sarcastically asked. NeNe’s retort, “A lot of them…to never cross me in the wrong way, how about that!”
If you missed it, James and Lala were guests on WWHL last week and they were swearing up a storm, causing a good chunk of the episode to be bleeped out and forcing Andy to name the duo as his Jackhole of the Day.
The censor got really carried away – not just bleeping the curse words, but the entire sentence before and after, which really killed the show. So, while it is James and Lala’s fault for the way they acted and the things they said, the bleeper should take some of the blame, too! They didn’t have to get so heavy handed about it!
Lala and James took to Twitter (where else?) to apologize to Andy Cohen.
Lala, who is new to Vanderpump Rules this season, tweeted, “I’m so sorry for my potty mouth Andy. Thank you so much for having me. And thank u to my supporters. U keep me breathing. #iloveyou” Considering the ink isn’t even dry on her contract yet AND she attached herself to the oh so repulsive James, I’m guessing she doesn’t have nearly as many supporters as she thinks she does.
About his emotional talk with his mom, James said, “It was a difficult time for me. I made a lot of mistakes this summer. I feel like what I was going through with my family was definitely a part of that – it took me into a little bit of a whirlwind. With everything going on at SUR and with my parents, it was just a lot to handle.”
James said insinuating that he used Kristen Doute to get more screen time is “preposterous,” adding, “It’s not like I was banging her for four months and became a primary. We were together for a year and a half. We had a Christmas tree together last year. I don’t understand…” <silence> Because, swearing.
