NeNe Leakes is about to take her “Girl, bye.” phrase to court (no, it’s not cause Cynthia is filing for divorce)! According to “Black-owned family business” Tees in the Trap, a company that creates tees referencing pop culture and the “urban girl experience,” NeNe lifted their slogan and their t-shirt design, but then issued them a Cease & Desist letter for infringing on her territory! Oh dear.
NeNe became known for using the phrase “Girl, bye” on Real Housewives Of Atlanta, but this season she decided to expand on her vernacular by creating a line of tees that features all of NeNe’s “infamous” sayings – “Girl, bye.” included.
Unfortunately Tees in the Trap was already producing a tee that looks remarkably similar to what NeNe has brought to the market. They claim NeNe spotted one of THEIR tees in an Atlanta retailer – she was even photographed wearing it (see below) – and decided to co-opt the idea for herself! Then NeNe trademarked the phrase and is now demanding Tees in the Trap stop using it. Oh dear.
I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting to like Claudia Jordan on this season’s Real Housewives of Atlanta as much as I do. Granted, I teeter back and forth with every episode, but she’s growing on me…much like a benign, oozing, sore, but growing on me nonetheless. Who’s with me? The newbie shows no fear calling out NeNe Leakes, and she may (almost) make me find Kenya Moore to be not as Krayonce as I once thought…ALMOST. This week, Claudia tackles yet another housewives nightmare vacay, and I think she’s spot on in her assessments.
Taking to her Bravo blog, Claudia begins, “WHEW! What trip! First of all I’d like to thank Demetria [McKinney] for inviting us all down to Puerto Rico for her do-over. And honey, what a do-over it was! The rooms were cute and cozy, the weather was amazing, and the pina coladas were fantastic! And on top of all that I really got to know Demetria a little more, and I just adore her. And of course like always I had a great time with Kenya and Cynthia [Bailey]. Those two really know how to have fun, and I appreciate their laid back and easy going demeanor. Our time at the pool was fun — especially watching Kenya attempt to speak both Italian and broken Spanish to our bartender in an attempt to wrangle up some local cuties!”
In her blog, Demetria discussed the madness in Puerto Rico, her apology to Phaedra Parks, the double standard within the group, and her performance.
Real Housewives of Atlanta is all about that drama! “These girls, these girls, these girls! My performance is approaching quickly and we’ve had nothing but shade, shadows, and pearl clutching the whole time,” said Demetria. “Really?! We are in Puerto Rico, why be so nasty and so rude?”
I mean, in case you didn’t catch the first twenty times it was mentioned, it’s not every day that NeNe apologizes. <eye roll> Claudia was not as impressed as NeNe’s ego expected her to be and more words were exchanged.
NeNe took to her blog to make sure we understand that NeNe only apologized for choosing that time and that place to call Claudia a whore. Otherwise, NeNe said what she said, and she meant it.
According to a police report Bryson was recently back in jail on a probation violation – and he was just ordered to rehab! The original arrest stems from a 2013 DUI when Bryson totaled his Dodge Charger by crashing it into two utility poles at 4:13 am. Despite telling officers the “darkness” made it difficult for him to see, leading to the accident, police administered a DUI test because of the “odor of alcoholic beverages” and Bryson had a BAC of .048! He was sentenced to 1 year probation and 30 days house arrest.
In last night’s installment of The Hunger Games: MockingShade 2, the ladies of Real Housewives Of Atlanta insulted each other on every level, then took a break to pass a dildo between their caftans on a beach, and then returned to insulting each other on every level. I like my Housewives classy like that!
We’re at dinner where Claudia Jordan is a whore and NeNe Leakes is fat with seething jealousy and shops at Ross. Now Claudia, you can read NayNay, but please don’t read Ross! I have gotten many things at Ross, including fabulous glasses made to look like Solo Cups! NeNe snaps that her dress is “RUNWAY!” Because when you got them coins they make RUNWAY in your size. That must be the reason NeNe’s dress looks like leftover remains of a circus tent in a Project Runway challenge. “Auf wiedersehen,” Ms. Leakes.
Claudia rips NeNe for her plastic “hair hat” glued to her head. T’is true – for someone so very rich NeNe has the worst wigs – she may have coins, but she does not use them to pay a hair gay!
Claudia Jordan‘s toes may be allowed to disrespect her but nobody else is – and that includes NeNe Leakes! The veteran and the newbie faced off in an epic (and vitriolic) war of words which has only escalated in the media and on twitter.
Claudia says she has no interest in allowing NeNe to bully her and she is saddened that the original Real Housewives Of Atlanta star isn’t using her platform to set a better example!
“It’s sad because NeNe has a huge following… and when she makes comments that I am a whore without any kind of proof, or just saying it to be mean, it can be really damaging. Woman have got to stop doing that to each other,” Claudia seethed. “There’s a lot of things I know about a lot of people, but I’m not just gonna go there. I am not going to sit there and be bullied! I am not going to let people do that to me.”
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week. Enjoy!
