In today’s surprise, a new episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta will be airing tonight on Bravo! But more on that below.
First, following Nene Leakes’ claims that she is “rich… very rich” due to the Trump checks she received from doing Celebrity Apprentice, it now appears she might have fibbed a
lot little. A Bravo housewife fibbing? You don’t say!
“While you were running your mouth, I was running to the bank … depositing a Trump check!” NeNe claimed to Sheree Whitfield on the RHOA season opener adding, “I’m rich, bitch!” And to further prove her wealth to millions of
strangers viewers, the Nene was seen looking at a $9 million dollar home in Miami.
However, Donald Trump Jr. is now speaking out against Nene’s claims, telling the Wetpaint blog that if the Nene is indeed rich or very rich rather, it is not due to any checks from his dad Donald Trump.
When asked about Nene’s claims of wealth via Donald, Trump Jr. told Wetpaint, “Honestly, I have no idea.” He continued, “All the celebrities on the show play for charity. She received a small appearance fee, sure, but that was it.”
Trump Jr. added: “And as far as I know, she’s not involved with any of our other business or corporations. So I’m not sure what she’s talking about.” Ouch!
So just how much did Nene earn on Celebrity Apprentice? Well that exact amount is unknown but Piers Morgan, who won the 1st season of the show back in 2008, revealed he and his castmates only received about $25,000 each to do the show. So perhaps that amount has since gone up to $9 million in a span of 3 years! Thus making the Nene very rich!
Nene has since backtracked on her “very rich” comments claiming she simply meant she was spiritually wealthy. Uh uh.
Meanwhile, the ratings for the 4th season of the RHOA continues to soar! With over 3.3 million viewers tuning in for Sunday’s episode, the series continues to remain the highest rated Bravo housewives franchise. In fact, the recent episode of RHOA was seen by 1.1 million more viewers than the still very impressive 2.2 million viewers that watched the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Monday night. It appears the RHOA ladies and their
manufactured drama are here to stay!
Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the RHOA! Yes, Bravo has decided to air a new full-episode tonight.
On the 7th episode this season titled ‘Law By Sheree,‘ Shereé is served with legal papers, and turns to Phaedra for representation. The two confidently face Sheree’s ex in court, but to their dismay, he has a trick up his sleeve. Kim and Kroy bring baby KJ home and chaos erupts in the house. On an all-new episode of “Kandi Koated Nights,” Kandi chats with guests Marlo Hampton and baller boyfriend Charles Grant. One of Kandi’s co-hosts asks Charles what it was like to date NeNe and it doesn’t take long for the gossip to spread.
The episode airs at 9/8c and a preview clip is below!
