Nene Leakes


Sweetie Hughes, better known as Kim Zolciak’s long suffering assistant on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, is finally breaking her silence on the recent controversies surrounding her.

For starters, Sweetie was the so called “reason” for the big tour bus fight that ensued this season involving former BFFs Kim and Nene Leakes. Nene made a big stink on the bus, claiming she had a problem with the way Kim treated Sweetie, only to turn around and call Sweetie a slave to her face – more than once.

Since the airing of that episode, Sweetie continues to feel the brunt of Nene’s words and actions as Atlanta radio host Rickey Smiley launched a “Free Sweetie” campaign on Feb. 16 after Nene called his morning show.

“They’re doing it for Black History Month, and it offends me,” Sweetie tells Life & Style. “They have pastors calling into the radio station and praying for me. They’ve taken it too far. NeNe’s jealous that she’s not as close to Kim as I am. I’ve known Kim for 11 years, since I was a kid. Kim’s a great friend to me. NeNe’s traumatizing my life. She’s bringing hell to it.”

Kim also spoke to the mag about the Sweetie situation. “I never want to speak to NeNe again. My assistant Sweetie is so upset about the whole thing, she’s beside herself,” Kim tells Life & Style. “NeNe has problems.”

In other Kim news, we now have more of her interview with Life & Style magazine, in which she talks about her unborn baby and “amazing” sex life with 25-year-old dummy baby’s daddy to be Kroy Biermann.

“The baby’s fine — no complications or problems, thank God. I was pretty nauseous in the first trimester,” Kim tells the mag. “Now I drink Perrier all day — it’s the best ever and keeps me from the nausea. But, I am exhausted. We just went to Anguilla for 10 days, and I slept my butt off!”

And how much weight has Kim gained? “I don’t step on the scale, but I’d say I’ve gained about 20 pounds. I gained 30 with my first and 28 with my second.”

When it comes to how pregnancy has affected her sex life, Kim dishes to Life & Style: “It’s amazing! We’re in a really good place. Kroy loves me pregnant. I don’t remember my ex-husband being that into it, but Kroy loves it. He tells me I’m so beautiful. He’s really cute about it, and it definitely makes it a lot easier on me.” Good to know Kim. Good to know.

Following slams by Nene Leakes, not once but twice, Star Jones is finally responding to her Celebrity Apprentice costar.

If you recall, Nene recently went on the Wendy Williams Show and stated, “I’m not feeling Star Jones. I gave her a chance when she got there, but Star is a trip. She’s very special. I wouldn’t spit on Star if she was on fire.”  Star is now telling her side to Black Voices and below is what she had to say-

“This actually saddens me. Black women trashing other black women all for the sake of personal aggrandizement. When the cast was first announced, I was both excited and concerned. Excited that this was going to be the most diverse cast in prime-time reality programming and concerned because the media immediately started the drumroll of “can this many black women get along?” The four of us actually chatted about the unique opportunity we had to influence the perception of black women and the way we interact. We each brought something different to the show, so I had hoped we could avoid falling into the typical “snake charmer in your face loud bombastic black woman” stereotypical box that was expected. Some of us were more successful at our quest than others.”

In other news, the YBF blog is reporting that Nene and her Real Housewives of Atlanta costar Phaedra Parks went at it during a local radio interview on Wednesday.

The smackdown occurred on the “Rickey Smiley Morning Show” when Nene called in to talk about Star and Phaedra.  Following Nene’s trash talking, Phaedra then called in to the show and a back-and-forth ensued.  Below are some of the “highlights” -

Nene On Phaedra being an Equestrian:

“You are sitting on the same show I’m sitting on so your attorney work must not be working out for you. And as far as her being an equestrian, I don’t know that for sure. But she was raised in the projects of Athens and they didn’t ride horses. They barely drove cars through there… If I wanted to ride a horse I could have rode one.  I decided to drive a car.”

Nene on Phaedra Being a Lawyer:

“Now she can be a class act act or whatever you want to call it….And I don’t care if she went to school for 20 years, you end up on the same show I am on. And I do more than you do and make more money than you so what’s next?”

Phaedra On Growing Up in Athens and NeNe’s Attitude:

“I don’t have any issues with NeNe. I did not grow up in the ghetto cause there are no ghettos is Athens (Georgia). You have forgotten a lot about high school. You have forgotten a lot about your hometown. And from what I understand, you say you are from New York but you’ve been in Athens since you were three years old. So it’s not amazing to me that you would forget most things.”

The ladies reportedly went back and forth before one of the female members of the radio show cut off the conversation.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta return tonight for their season three reunion!

So what can we expect tonight? Well on the first part of the reunion show, the ladies sit down with Andy Cohen to discuss their season of marital meltdowns, premarital panicking and due-date discrepancies. The reunion airs at 10/9c on Bravo.

Watch What Happens Live – The show also returns tonight with guests Cynthia Bailey and her husband Peter Thomas.

In other Atlanta news, Nene Leakes and her BFF of the moment/only friend she has left on the show/her minion Cynthia Bailey did an interview with Zap2It during which they both revealed that their fellow housewives decided to form an alliance against them for the reunion show. And no, we are not making this up.

First, Cynthia discussed just how stressful the reunion shows really are. “The reunion show is a big deal and I guess it’s big to the viewers that watch the show, as well. I was very anxious to do it and get it over with,” said Cynthia.

Nene gave her take on the issue, comparing the reunion to a game of Survivor. “People try to form alliances,” NeNe said. “Which I never do. I just go in. It’s just a really difficult thing to sit there in front of the person that you said this or that and they’re asking you why you said that.”

So who is the leader of this so called alliance? According to Nene, it is Phaedra. “Phaedra [Parks] is hilarious to me,” said Nene. “She talked all this stuff about everybody, all us girls, but I seem to be the only one who has a problem with it. That is probably because she has called each girl up and made friendly with them, saying I’m sorry I didn’t mean to say that… So, Phaedra and all of them apologized to each other and of course they all want to be against me. It was sort of like me and Cynthia against them.”

And follower Cynthia made certain to cosign the comments of her leader friend Nene. “Yes, that would be accurate,” Cynthia said of the alliances. “I don’t know what’s going on with the other girls. I don’t really talk to them as much as I talk to NeNe. So, I think it’s pretty obvious that they were all together, you know, in terms of conversation. They all seemed to be fine with everything coming from them and then, you know, it was kind of like us versus them.”

On that note, below is a preview clip of tonight’s show -

UPDATE – Mediatakeout posted the below photo of Nene and Sheree taken before they became Bravo housewives.

In case you’re not aware by now, Nene Leakes and Star Jones will both be appearing on the upcoming season of the Celebrity Apprentice, and there is no love lost between the two.

In fact, Nene, star of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, has slammed Star in multiple interviews, recently stating she “wouldn’t spit on Star if she was on fire.” While Donald Trump revealed during an appearance on the Jimmy Fallon Show that things turned physical between two castmates on the show, referencing Nene and Star.

Fast forward to today and a new report by Popeater reveals things got so bad that Star has had to hire security to keep Nene away from her.

“NeNe is coming unhinged,” a source close to Star tells Popeater adding that she even made LaToya Jackson cry and got in the face of singing legend Dionne Warwick.

The source adds that the issue is with Nene, who has also been shown getting into multiple fights with her RHOA castmates. “Clearly, she can’t get along with women, especially other black women. She is losing it.”

And while Nene continues to trash Star in the press, the source adds that Star is trying to rise above the negativity. Star however still feels that Nene could be a physical threat to her, which has led to her hiring her own private security guards.

“Star is a real celebrity, not some cheap reality star who is enjoying 15 minute of fame,” the friend says. “She’s a lawyer and a lady. NeNe can say what she wants about Star, but she doesn’t care now that she knows she’s safe.”

As for the Donald, he is reportedly excited at what is being called the “most dramatic season of ‘The Apprentice’ ever.” The source adds, “Donald Trump loved it. He’s no fool. He knows that this sort of drama is TV gold.”

Meanwhile, part 1 of the RHOA reunion airs this Sunday on Bravo, and below is a preview clip.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THIS STORY? DO YOU THINK NENE IS LOSING IT?

With the third season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta winding down, Nene Leakes continues to run her mouth speak her mind.

Appearing on the Wendy Williams Show on Tuesday, Nene discussed her “divorce,” her plans to “quit” the RHOA, while also slamming once again her Celebrity Apprentice costar Star Jones.

When it comes to her divorce with Gregg Leakes, Nene told Wendy: “The divorce is pending. I did file for divorce. My happiness is everything.” Perhaps the divorce is really happening this time as Nene also revealed Gregg “actually just moved out.”

Nene was also asked about wanting to leave the RHOA after the current season, during which Wendy brought up Kim Zolciak’s comments stating Nene can’t leave the Bravo hit show because they’re all under contract. NeNe responded, “Contracts can be broken.”

And finally, when it comes to her upcoming appearance on NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice, NeNe denied rumors that stated she was acting like a diva on the set. “Everybody has to be there at a certain time so that’s not possible,” Nene quipped.

When asked about her relationship with fellow Apprentice star Star Jones, Nene did not mince her words! “I’m not feeling Star Jones. I gave her a chance when she got there, but Star is a trip. She’s very special. I wouldn’t spit on Star if she was on fire,” said Nene.

Star’s response? A twitter follower asked her what she thinks of NeNe, Star replied, “I don’t.” Star also made the following tweets within the past 24 hours -

“Lesson learned long ago: “Never get into a PIG fight…because 3 things happen: You get tired, you get dirty and only the pig has fun!”

“Ignorance in pretty clothes and high heeled shoes is still ignorance…“There is nothing more frightful than ignorance in action.””

Below is an NBC promo of Nene on Celebrity Apprentice, which premieres March 6. Part 1 of the RHOA reunion airs this Sunday on Bravo.

For the second season in a row, Nene Leakes found herself on the receiving end of major backlash from fans of the Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Following her tour bus fight with costar Kim Zolciak and shameful display in Miami, Nene has received criticism for her behavior on the show. And now in her latest Bravo blog, Nene attempts to defend herself, while also letting her fans know she is actually the victim of her costars. According to Nene, all of her fellow housewives have “formed an alliance” against her with the exception of Cynthia who Nene feels is the only one who “has a brain of her own.” Oh the irony.

Excerpts from Nene’s blog below -

There are so many issues I could address over the past few weeks with these ladies, but I choose not to because it’s easy to attack and judge! Those of you who have formed an opinion, nothing I say will change that! For those of you who love me, you will continue to do so. These ladies have apparently formed an alliance except for Cynthia who happens to have a brain of her own. I don’t have the energy nor do I have the time to stoop to their level of ignorance. I understand that everything about me is under attack. From the color of my polish to the style of my shoes because I’m a threat! I refuse to follow the leader. I am the leader! I have a take charge attitude so that makes me fierce competition… I’m a star in the sky so I’ll just stay up high because through it all, I’m still standing! Thanks for all the comments, the good and the bad.

Allrighty. Whatever helps Nene sleep at night. Meanwhile, things between Nene and Kim continues to deteriorate as the two, well mostly Nene, attacked each other on twitter Sunday night.

While Kim appeared on WWHL on Sunday, Nene wrote numerous tweets calling her a “trashy whore” and claiming she plays the victim role. Andy read one of the tweets to Kim on the show, after which she said Nene needs to leave her alone and worry about her warrants.

However, the most notable tweet from Nene came when a fan asked, “What u think abt Kim being preggo?” Nene tweeted back, “3 kids by 3 different daddys & no husband is nothing 2 b all happy about.” Ouch. Oddly enough, Nene has made the same claim at least three times in the past week alone on twitter, while Kim has yet to deny it. Nene has also yet to deny Kim’s claims that she has warrants.

And finally, the finale episode of the RHOA shattered all kinds of records for Bravo. With over 4.37 million viewers tuning in, it was the most watched Housewives episode ever in the history of the network. But even before the finale aired, RHOA had surpassed the Real Housewives of New Jersey to once again become the highest rated housewives series, averaging 3.5 million viewers per episode this season.

The Atlanta housewives reportedly received $100,000 each for season 2, and $150,000 each for their 3rd season. It’s safe to assume that amount will increase even more for season 4. Even safer to assume there will be a 4th season.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON NENE’S BLOG AND TWEETS? ARE YOU SURPRISED THE RHOA IS THE HIGHEST RATED FRANCHISE?

Following a very successful 3rd season, regaining its title as the highest rated Bravo housewives franchise, tonight marks the finale of the Real Housewives of Atlanta!

On the episode titled ‘The Bride and the Doom,’ season 3 closes with Cynthia’s wedding rapidly approaching, but jitters and dramas surround the big event. Elsewhere, Phaedra returns to work; Sheree’s acting ability is sorely tested during a movie audition; and Kandi approaches Kim about song-related finances.

According to a NY Post report that came out last July, days after the wedding, Cynthia Bailey’s BFF Nene Leakes supposedly held up the wedding for 45 minutes when she barged into Cynthia’s bridal suite and demanded her hair and makeup be done. The Post added the drama did not end there as Kim then got into an argument with boyfriend Kroy when she caught him checking out “a hot redhead.” It will be interesting to see if any of these stories make the finale episode tonight.

And finally, wedding photos of Cynthia and Peter Thomas are below. The super sized 1 hour 30 minute episode airs at 10/9c on Bravo.

Watch What Happens Live – On tonight’s show, Andy Cohen will throw a live baby shower for the pregnant Kim Zolciak. Joining Kim will be her baby daddy to be/NFL player Kroy Biermann.

A preview clip of tonight’s episode is below!

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes continues to have a bad week. First came major backlash from fans of the show following her behavior on the latest episode, and now a not so flattering interview by one of her stepsons.

In the interview with RadarOnline, 34-year-old Damian Leakes, who happens to be one of Gregg Leakes’ five children pre-Nene, is claiming Nene disowned him and his other siblings. And it gets even better as Damian now wants he and his forgotten siblings to get their own reality show.

“We are the forgotten side of the family. There’s so much talent with the kids he left behind,” Damian said of not being included or acknowledged on the Bravo hit show. “She knows us and she knows we have issues from about 15 years ago and it’s time to address them. She’s become a household name with our last name, but we’re non-existent.”

Gregg’s children include Damian and his twin brother Daryl, Katrina, 27; Dexter, 25; and Denton, 21. Damian also confirms that Gregg did indeed meet Nene while she was stripping at a strip club in Atlanta near his father’s workplace. “No one really knew about her stripper past. That alone was a selling point for her to say ‘get rid of them because they met me at the strip club,’ Damian said.

Damian goes on again to pitch his own reality show. “We need some closure,” Damian stated. “We need to know what did we do to cause this? What did we do to get Gregg to say ‘I’m going to abandon this family! I’m not going to try to be your friend or work with you or understand!’ We knew she [NeNe] didn’t like us– maybe he had too many kids. A TV show could be building process for Gregg and his kids because no one ever knew he had kids. There’s a lot of healing that needs to go on and a lot of animosity.”

Damian bashes Nene some more. “I think [Nene] has a lot to do with the crumbling of our family,” Damian added.“We think of her as selfish and a center-of-attention freak. She wants all of the attention and this is before a camera ever got on her.”

Moving right along. For the few fans of the show who are not aware of Cynthia Bailey’s marital status, she did indeed get married to Peter Thomas.

It was all over the press last year when the wedding took place in July. In fact, we also wrote about it. The pictures however have been kept under wraps, that is until now. Essence magazine plans to publish the wedding images in their next issue while the latest issue of Life & Style magazine, out on newsstands today, also has some exclusive photos of Cynthia on her big day. Two of those are below.

And finally, Sunday’s episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta was its highest rated in the history of Bravo. Over 3.43 million viewers tuned in! And once again, RHOA is the highest rated housewives franchise, beating out the former leader – RHONJ. Drama does sell indeed.
