Nene Leakes

I love to see someone taking an inventory of all of their talents and then using them accordingly. You have to give NeNe Leakes credit where credit is due. Girlfriend knows how to capitalize on her fifteen forty-five minutes of fame with savvy business decisions and calculated risks. Remember that NeNe that used to fly off the handle with drama on the early seasons of Real Housewives of Atlanta? She's been replaced with a diva who knows that too much crazy is a bad thing, and instead she gives us gems like "close your legs to married men, WIG!"

She's a smart one, I tell you. Sure, the Neenster may feel that she's too good for the show that made her famous, but soon enough, she may not need it. She's built quite the little empire for herself given her humble beginnings as a stripper. NeNe's held some legitimate acting roles and maintained her presence in the reality realm with her own spin-off and a stint on Celebrity Apprentice. I almost forgot about her present gig on Dancing with the Stars! Now, her past is meeting her present. With the Neenster's newest endeavor, she gets to exercise her acting chops while presumably using some of the skills she perfected on the pole. Anyone going to Vegas anytime soon? If so, NeNe may have the show for you!


NeNe Leakes and Tony Dovolani

Dancing with the Stars pro Tony Dovolani seems like a sweet guy – and I'd be lying if I said I didn't cringe when he got paired with Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes this season. So, color me shocked, Tony can't stop gushing over NeNe and he sounds sincere. 

Tony said he and NeNe "hit it off right off the bat,"  adding,  "Everybody's got this perception of NeNe. I've grown to really respect and adore her. I think she's actually a big teddy bear. She treats me like gold. We really have a good time." 


Captin America 2 Atlanta Red Carpet

Porsha Williams, Brody Jenner, Joanna Krupa, Kim Kardashian, Rachel Zoe and more were spotted out and about this week. 

Porsha Stewart was in attendance for a special premiere of Captain America: The Winter Soldier on Monday at CineBistro at Town Brookhaven thanks to Liquid Soul.  Lucky Porsha is seen posing here with one of our favorite actors: Anthony Mackie

You'll also find Carole Radziwill promoting her book, Joanna Krupa attending an event (for Scientology?) for Youth for Human Rights International, and Juan Pablo grabs a flight with his ladylove. 


NeNe Leakes Jive

It's week two for NeNe Leakes on Dancing with the Stars. NeNe admits she let Gregg choose the dance, which is the Jive, then she rolls her eyes. Tony Dovolani jokes, "Wanna make the hubby happy," to which NeNe says, "I made him happy this morning. HAHA – just kidding!"  

Eeewww. Let's move on. ๐Ÿ˜‰ The rehearsal clips shows a lot of swearing, weave grabbing, and moaning from the Real Housewives of Atlanta star. NeNe kids about wanting to divorce Gregg.

IMO – tonight's Jive is not as good as last week's Cha Cha Cha.  NeNe seems way more interested in mugging for the camera than focusing on Tony or the Jive. That said, it's not terrible by any means. And, OMG, NeNe has killer legs! 

In other news, we learn the stars will switch pros in two weeks, determined by our tweets. Tweet #DWTS followed by the first name of the star and the first name of the pro you want to dance together. Example: #DWTS NeNe Derek.

NeNe Leakes is heading back to the ballroom floor tonight on Dancing with the Stars and after rehearsing six hours a day, she's as ready as she'll ever be. 

NeNe shared that she's proud of herself for taking such a huge leap out of her comfort zone by joining the competition show.  "I'm so totally out of my element. But after week one, I was actually proud of myself for doing something that is not of the norm for me. Some of the people who are currently on the show have previous dance experience and I don't, so I was actually proud of myself for just even getting through it."

The Real Housewives of Atlanta are still in Mexico. And they're still on the Krayonce Moore Does Mexico Tour which includes several events with misguided purposes, layered and shaded in ulterior motives and sneaky behavior. You know, the usual! 

We left off with Kenya and Apollo having a "chat" and in walks Phaedra Parks rocking a stare that would turn any inappropriate-acting Housewife to stone. As the other ladies watch, frozen, Phaedra asks Apollo what he's doing with Kenya and then Phaedra storms off. 

NeNe Leakes and Porsha Stewart explain to Apollo that he has no business talking to Kenya because his wife asked him not to and that is disrespectful to his marriage. If you think that made sense to Apollo, you're wrong. It didn't. Meanwhile, Kenya was on the other side of the Interviews With A Sexter party gloating to Lawrence



Prepare yourselves – this post is short but it contains unsettling big news about Shahs of Sunset and I Dream Of NeNe

First, a fourth season of Shahs of Sunset is happening:  


Who returns remains to be seen.  I don't expect to see Lilly Ghalichi, but I kind of hope she gets her own show. What can I say? Persian Barbie grew on me! 



Say whatever you want about NeNe Leakes but she has certainly parlayed her appearance on Real Housewives of Atlanta into a full-fledged career! 

This season NeNe is juggling two reality shows: RHOA, of course, and Dancing With The Stars. She had her first dance this week with partner Tony Dovolani and NeNe is more determined than ever to make her personality (and maybe even her background as a stripper) work in her favor.  Despite Wendy Williams' prediction that they won't win!

NeNe is also not going to let the health issues she experienced earlier this year hold her back! And she's also hoping she'll be hit with the added DWTS bonus of losing weight. "I'd love to lose 15 pounds," NeNe confesses to Essence. "That's a lot. I can't see me at 15 pounds smaller. That would be a disaster, OK? I'll be wearing everything."
