Nene Leakes

Holy drama! According to the very reputable AJC media outlet, the Bravo network is currently in talks with Nene Leakes and Kim Zolciak to do separate spinoffs with them.

Two sources who are familiar with the negotiations but not authorized to talk about them confirmed the news about the Real Housewives of Atlanta stars to the AJC.

When it comes to Kim, her spin-off show would be about her life with new beau/baby daddy to be/NFL player Kroy Biermann and her new baby which is due in June. Nene’s show would involve her efforts to break into Hollywood after moving to Los Angeles later this year.

However, fret not RHOA fans as Bravo realizes the Nene and Kim are the two biggest reasons we tune in each week. If both shows do come to fruition, Bravo reportedly plans to keep at least one of the ladies on the “Real Housewives.”

And while Nene and Kim are arguably the two biggest stars on the show, Bravo is experiencing a major problem which is that both ladies absolutely want nothing to do with each other following their latest blow up on the tour bus towards the end of season three. You know, the blow up during which the Nene lost her cool for no reason at all, called Kim’s assistant a slave, and even threatened physical violence.

This is likely creating challenges for Bravo producers who began shooting season four earlier this month, and would like to maximize interaction amongst all six cast members especially between Kim and Nene. And just as we speculated, Kim’s recent baby shower was indeed filmed for the upcoming season and Nene was not in attendance.

While Bravo declined to comment on the story, the network is reportedly considering adding a new housewife in case Kim and/or Nene leave the show for good following season 4. Perhaps Bravo might want to wait to see how things pan out on the Real Housewives of NYC this season with the departure of the show’s star Bethenny Frankel. If the latest lackluster episode of that series was any indication of what is to come, then the network’s decision to allow Bethenny to leave was a very poor one.

While a spin-off show for Nene and/or Kim might not be the worst idea, allowing one or both of them to leave the RHOA will be a disastrous idea. Even more disastrous considering the RHOA is the highest rated housewives series on Bravo.

As for Nene, she continues to get hosting gigs which included covering the royal wedding with Perez Hilton for WE-TV on Friday. Plus she is currently appearing on Celebrity Apprentice, you know, just in case you haven’t seen the previews of her highly promoted upcoming blow-up with Star Jones this Sunday.

According to a new report, not all reality stars are raking in the dough when it comes to their books.

The HollywoodReporter reported last week that Bethenny Frankel is the most successful of them all. Not only did she sell her Skinnygirl alcohol line for $120 million, but both of her first two books – which made the New York Bestseller list – sold a combined total of 480,000 copies!

New Jersey Housewife Teresa Giudice’s first cookbook – Skinny Italian – was also a hit as she sold over 100,000 copies.

Other Bravo housewives didn’t have as much luck starting with Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes whose memoir ‘Never Make the Same Mistake Twice‘ flopped pretty badly. Nene’s book sold 10,000 copies according to the Perez Hilton blog.

Also flopping were Jill Zarin and Danielle Staub, as their books reportedly sold fewer than 10,000 copies each. The Jersey Shore reality stars didn’t fare much better as Snooki’s book sold 35,000 copies with The Situation’s book only selling 15,000 copies.

Last night on Celebrity Apprentice, we discovered Nene Leakes continues to remain the most unaware person on earth, Hope Dworaczyk continues to slide under the radar, Gary Busey returned to the show through a reincarnation via the Meat Loaf, and oh yeah, Star Jones is definitely playing the game! So let the games begin.

The task was to have each group create 4 pages of ads for the Trump Hotels. Star stepped up to manage the women’s team since she’s been living the life of lux all her life, while John Rich volunteered to be the men’s PM since nobody else would.

Nene suffered another mild emotional breakdown and played victim yet again when she simply couldn’t understand why La Toya Jackson would tell Donald Trump she wanted to keep in touch with everyone on their team except her.

“I cannot understand what I”ve done to her personally for her to say that,” said the Nene. Seriously, she did… days after verbally attacking La Toya by calling her Casper and stating she was only famous because of her last name. Surreal. The Nene is starting to give me Kelly Kirazy Bensimon. La Toya stands her ground stating she simply told Trump how she felt. Star gets involved and has the ladies talk things out, which might have been a bad strategy on her part. Nene, probably realizing just how important La Toya’s last name is, says she wants to be friends and La Toya extends an olive branch.

Breaking News: Nene Leakes is “Unstable!”

In a recent interview with E! Online, Celebrity Apprentice contestant Hope Dworaczyk speaks out about the erratic behavior of co-star Nene, calling her unstable and describing her behavior as “out of control”; she also gives the dirty details about just how much of a hot mess Celebrity Apprentice is – comparing it to another show where B-list celebrities go to extend their 15 minutes: Celebrity Rehab! Yikes – the Donald isn’t going to approve of that.

Not surprisingly, Hope and Nene got along well when Hope was just another minion, but when she stepped into the Project Manager role and had to be Nene’s boss, things went south. “I liked Nene a lot until I had to be her boss,” said Hope. “It got a little weird after that. I had to tell her what to do and I don’t think anybody wants to take direction from someone who is a lot younger than them.” Well that’s shocking! We all know Nene is hardly the domineering type who needs to be in control of everyone around her.

Hope also further ruins Nene’s stellar reputation as a polite, quiet, and respectful person who would never cause a scene, by letting us in on a little secret: Nene is an emotional mess and an out of control bully who attacked fellow contestant Star Jones in a manner that would justify Star needing a bodyguard. “I think if I had been yelled at and attacked the way Nene gets in Star’s face, I would have wanted a bodyguard, too,” said Hope. Nene Leakes!? Our Nene Leakes? Never!

Hope goes on to clarify that: “One minute she was crying and opening up about herself and sharing something about the past that’s very very personal, and the next minute, she’s yelling. I think you call that unstable.” Yes, I would say you definitely call that unstable.

Well Hope, that sounds like the Nene we all know and sort of sometimes… love? Ok, ok – like, on occasion, for comic relief. I guess that’s the risk you take when associating with Ms. Leakes – one minute she’s your bestie and the next minute she is calling you the B*word on national TV and screaming in your face! Just ask Kim Zolciack!

The E! story also briefly touches on Meat Loaf’s verbal assault on Gary Busey. Meat Loaf describes his actions as a “brief moment of total insanity.” In Nene Leakes’ case I guess you could describe her actions as a lifetime of total insanity!

Nene Leakes vs Star Jones take 10.

Following Nene’s latest shameful display on Celebrity Apprentice during which she verbally attacked La Toya Jackson for no good reason at all, Star is now speaking out against the Nene once again.

In a new interview with Popeater, Star tells the site “you never get involved in a pig fight,” when asked about Nene. “If you do, three things happen: you get dirty, you get tired, and only the pig has fun. It diminishes me to talk about her. I have so many other things going on in my life.”

And when it comes to her upcoming fight with Nene on the show, Star reveals she had to restrain herself from really going off. “In my heart, I think ‘pray, don’t act crazy, your grandmother is watching, your sorority sisters are watching, you were raised better than this,’” states Star.

Star, who recently released her book Satan’s Sisters, then takes the ultimate swipe at the Nene, referencing her past as a stripper. “I know there are people that value my opinion,” says Star about wanting to set a good example. “Plus, I’m not 20 minutes off the pole.” Ouch!

In other Nene news, RadarOnline is reporting she badly wants her own show. Apparently, Nene wants her own spin-off show a la Bethenny Frankel, or a talk show a la Oprah Winfrey.

“Nene is actively shopping herself around and she wants her own chat show and if that does not happen she would like her own reality show instead,” says a source. “She was encouraged when she did some slots with local television stations in Atlanta and she thinks that she has what it takes to be the next Oprah or Wendy Williams.”

The Nene has reportedly had talks with Bravo and VH-1 about getting her own show though a recent report states she and her Real Housewives of Atlanta costars have signed on to return for another season.

If there’s one thing to be learned from last night’s Celebrity Apprentice, it is that ratings trumps all. Meaning how else can you explain Donald Trump choosing to keep Gary Busey over the other sane more deserving contestants?

The challenge yesterday was to create a marketing campaign for the Australian Gold sunscreen products. The men’s Team Backbone came out on the losing end after the Australian Gold execs decided they did not like the pirates theme nor the fact that the men failed to integrate their key brand messaging aka their Koala Bear mascot.

The team managers were Mark McGrath and La Toya Jackson. In the board room, the men’s team banded together, making it crystal clear Gary was their weakest link and deserved to go home. Unfortunately for Mark, he was sent packing after the Donald realized the entertaining Gary was better for the ratings.

Now onto the good stuff as Nene Leakes displayed her lack of class on national television yet again, but this time around in front of a few million more viewers than that show on Bravo.

While in the board room, Nene called out La Toya for not being a good team manager. Okay, fair enough. La Toya defended herself and all seemed to be okay as the women’s team did win after all.

Donald asked Nene to apologize to La Toya and she refused. Still fair enough. However, upon exiting the board room, the Nene decided to completely lose her sh*t, going off on La Toya and repeatedly insulting her.

“Don’t ever try me like that! I worked my a– off while you sat there and looked like Casper the Ghost. Listen here, Casper,” said Nene. “The only reason you’ve gotten this far is because of your last name. You faked it for 50 years. You are very old. You need to play your age and not 12. You are an old lady.” And why exactly is Nene famous herself?

La Toya managed to keep her cool and simply walked away. “She feels she can run over me. I will not stoop to her level. We’re torn from two different cloths. I’m sorry,” stated La Toya aka she is trash and I am not.

La Toya also summed up the Nene perfectly when she stated, “Nene is nothing but a big bully. She’s got a big mouth. That’s all she’s is – mouth and height. She uses that to her advantage.” And where was Nene’s mouth when Dionne Warwick was calling her a coward? Seems like she definitely enjoys picking on those she deems as being weak aka La Toya and Kim Zolciak.

And once again, Nene received a lot of backlash from fans causing her to make the following tweets last night -

“Ok Ok Ok yall r blowing my timeline up! Latoya & I hav made peace & moved on!”

“I luv my tweetie pies but Some of yall do flip flop from week 2 week but it’s all good! I’m n a really good place rite now so it’s ok.”

Guess that makes it all okay. And judging from next week’s previews, it seems the Nene will continue to rear its ugly attitude.

The NY Post is reporting that during a recent “Summer by Bravo” commercial shoot this week, some of the Bravo housewives felt snubbed by Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi.

According to the post, other Bravolebrities Kyle Richards, Nene Leakes, Patti Stanger, Jill Zarin, and Lisa Vanderpump arrived at 8 a.m. in Brooklyn to film the promo. Padma then arrived three hours later as scheduled with an entourage of six to a private room, brushing past the others without a greeting.

This apparently led to some whispers and gossip by some of the Bravo housewives. A source overheard one star hiss, “It takes a village to raise a child,” citing the entourage around Padma’s dressing area playing with her 14-month-old daughter, Krishna.

A witness said, “They took all of the women’s bags that had been left in a dressing room and threw them into a hallway so Padma could sit separately with her baby in between shoots.”

Top Chef judge Gail Simmons however comes to Padma’s defense. “We didn’t know a lot of the women [who were there]. It’s not like we work together on a regular basis. I met a lot of people on the set for the first time,” said Gail. “It’s not like we’re holding hands and singing ‘Kumbaya.’”

Gail added, “I don’t think I spoke to most people, either. You are there to do a job. She [Padma] was with her child. I would think that anyone could understand that, and she’s still nursing, which is also not a public thing to do. What’s there to complain about? It’s not high school. We’re all professionals.” Millionaire Matchmaker star Patti added, “We all thought her baby was beautiful.”

A rep for Bravo tells the Post there were no designated dressing rooms. And Padma’s rep sniped, “I think this is a nonsensical item from a ‘Housewife’ who is jealous. It’s going to make Padma look bad, and it’s just not true . . . she didn’t get any special treatment.” Meow!

No word yet on how this article made it’s way to the Post though oddly enough one of the above names has a show debuting tonight on Bravo.

Days after Bravo confirmed the Real Housewives of Atlanta will be returning for a 4th season, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution is now reporting all six of the housewives will be returning!

According to the AJC, Nene Leakes, Sheree Whitfield, Kim Zolciak, Phaedra Parks, Kandi Burruss and Cynthia Bailey will be back next season despite Nene’s public statements about having major doubts regarding coming back to the show.

The site also adds that Bravo has no plans to add a new housewife to the cast, a first in the franchise’s history. As we have reported, the Atlanta housewives are Bravo’s most successful franchise, averaging close to 3 million viewers an episode for their last season.

Filming is slated to begin later this month.

In other news, RadarOnline is reporting that Nene Leakes might be addicted to plastic surgery. Despite having had liposuction done on her thighs, hips and stomach, Nene is apparently willing to go back under the knife to get a flatter stomach.

“NeNe is determined to have a flatter tummy and she intends to have more liposuction done so she looks her very best this summer,” a source tells Radar. “Her friends are worried that she has become too obsessed with plastic surgery and have warned her about the dangers, but she just wants to be the best image of herself that she can be.”

Nene, 41, is reportedly very insecure about her looks “despite being loud and over-confident in public” says the source. “She has always wanted to be famous and now that she is those insecurities have been heightened for her to look perfect.”

Since becoming famous, Radar reports the 6 ft tall Nene has had several procedures done including a nose job, breast reduction and lift, liposuction on her tummy, thighs and hips plus new veneers on her teeth.
