When asked if she saw NeNe in Cinderella, Phaedra said, “I most certainly did see NeNe on Broadway, and she was absolutely fantastic, as you would expect. Her performance was dazzling and I was particularly impressed with how she made the role her own. It can be difficult to portray such a well-known character, let alone add your own style and flair to such an established role.”
Claudia gave Kenya Moore‘s pilot, Life Twirls On, a rave review. “I thought it was cute and very fun to watch. The thing about Kenya I really like is that she is comfortable laughing at herself and not taking herself too seriously. She is entertaining. I thought Cynthia [Bailey] was really funny and totally committed to the part. It was fun to watch it with the girls, especially the part when Kenya played her own hair care commercial during the pilot! That was hilarious.”
What was officially the most disjointed, least sense-making season of Real Housewives Of Atlanta ever has finally come to an end. There were weird casting issues, a serious marriage upheaval, and pointless fights about female genitalia and how it is used (or misused), but there remained one constant: NeNe Leakes.
In her finale blog, NeNe discusses surviving RHOA no matter what co-stars and errant producers tried to throw at her and revels in her success on Broaaa-Way (the “D” is oddly silent when NeNe pronounces it, as if her tongue can’t reach around her giant veneers to reach the roof of her mouth required for the D sound. Clearly I am over-thinking this).
With things very up in the air concerning whether or not NeNe will return for season 8 (she announced on twitter she would “if certain cast members don’t”), she’s focusing on the future while reminding us of how vital she is to the life-force that is RHOA – and that the unstoppable force of NeNe is just that: unstoppable!
Season 7 of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta has come to an end – now we just have to get through the reunion. Can we? Yes, we can… with vodka. As they say: Life Twirls On… and so does the drama!
NeNe Leakes is in NYC for her debut in Broadway’s Cinderella. She’s got Michael Jackson’s sequined underwear on her head as a hat. Is it better or worse than the wig she’s got on underneath? With rehearsals ending, NeNe walks on the Broadway stage for the first time and is spellbound.
NeNe tosses her sequined-granny panties in the air and spins – not twirls – because she made it after all – away from the little town of Athens, away from the stripper pole, away from Wigs-N-Cigs and Krayonce, and onto the Great White Way where it is ALL. About. NeNe. The fans, the name in lights, the billboards on Times Square – all about NeNe. Those other people standing on stage with her? Mere extras in the giant production of life that is NeNe Leakes: The Impressive Adventures of Success As Told By Success Herself: Blooperella! NeNe admits she’s nervous.
NeNe does recognize she can’t run off stage if things don’t go her way, right?
As Bravo describes, Kandi and Todd decide to plan a Burruss-Tucker family ski vacation to Colorado to take their mind off of Todd’s mother Sharon’s sudden passing. There, they face “newlywed” issues from “struggling to blend their families to trying to get pregnant.” So, basically their RHOA storyline??? A preview of Kandi’s Ski Trip is below!
Real Housewives Of Atlanta is almost over (can I get an Amen!), and Bravo just released the first preview of the dramatic reunion! The theme was apparently all the ladies wearing white as they tried to out-virginal each other while rehashing old issues about who’s the biggest whore?!
You can watch the dramatic clip below! Which features NeNe Leakes having a dramatic meltdown while confronting painful issues from her past.
Andy Cohen dished on the unexpected happenings during the reunion and reveals things were very different, thanks in part to Dr. Jeff attending to help mediate between the ladies. Uhhh… why haven’t they been doing this for every reunion, like ever?!
