NeNe Leakes and Tracee Ellis Ross (love her!) were guests tonight on Watch What Happens Live. NeNe dished on tonight’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta and her take on the abusive relationship that seems to be happening between Phaedra and Apollo.
Andy asks NeNe what she thinks about Apollo’slast ditch attempt with claiming Phaedrahas cheated with a man named Mr. Chocolate. “First, I have to say I love the name chocolate. I don’t know whether Phaedra’s having an affair with a man named Chocolate or not. It was so strange that he was running around saying all that stuff. It’s sad. Look, I’ve been through a public breakup before and it’s really sad when you’re going through it and nobody is there to support you.”
NeNe Leakes is not sitting at home, thinking about these tired girls, worrying about these thirsty girls, being concerned. She is wor-king. She is very busy. And very rich! This weekend NeNe strutted her stuff in Naomi Campbell‘s annual Fashion For Relief runway show, this year benefiting the Ebola Survival Fund.
High fashionista NeNe joined celebrities such as Mary J. Blige, Cassie, Justin Bieber, Christina Milian, Rosario Dawson, Tyson Beckford and more on the runway to walk for a cure. NeNe wore Michael Costello (and a decent wig) as she worked the runway.
The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star shared photos from the show, including her posing with celebrities. You can check out the photos and a video of NeNe below!
Claudia Jordan may be new to Real Housewives of Atlanta – but she is no wallflower. Claudia came for that peach and she started drama with NeNe Leakes and Porsha Williams to get it. If you’ve enjoyed Claudia thus far, you will love her blog this week. She called out her catty and hypocritical co-stars left and right. If you have NOT enjoyed Claudia, then this is going to be painful.
“When I watched the lunch between Porsha and NeNe, I wasn’t surprised at all. Since they only hang out with each other, what else are they going to do besides talk about me, Cynthia Bailey, and Kenya Moore?” snarked Claudia. “First of all, note the contrast between my girls vs. NeNe and Porsha. While we are out shopping, going to events, laughing, going on road trips, supporting each other, visiting each other’s homes, and actually having real fun, these two ‘ladies’ are always just sitting around at lunch being negative. I mean seriously, without their beefs with us, what would they talk about? We are the focus of every single one of their conversations, tweets, blogs, and talking points. Now I am not saying we have never discussed these ‘ladies,’ but we talk about other things as well. We actually have lives outside of NeNe and Porsha.”
About Roger Boob (typo – but it stays), Kenya said, “When you are producing, you need people who are fully committed to your project. Roger Bobb is a talented producer and we both wanted to work together, but, if he couldn’t be there 100% of the time, then it would have been a disservice to my project.”
You know, sometimes it’s reassuring to see a reality star not losing touch with the actual real world. It doesn’t seem to happen a lot! Often, I find that true movie stars and entertainers seem more down-to-earth than people whose only claim to fame is that drama–and cameras–follow them everywhere! That said, it wouldn’t surprise me if someone saw, say Heidi MontagTamra JudgeRamona Singer Troy Landry (yeah, we’ll go with him. I love Swamp People) hitting up his local target. Usually, a reality star doing what would be normal daily routines for the rest of us seems about as odd as seeing Lisa Vanderpump shopping at a mall.
Given her larger than life persona and need to discuss her bank account and her brand at every turn, it makes me happy to see Real Housewives of Atlanta’sNeNe Leakes hitting up her local TJ Maxx for some fashionable bargains. My friends all know my obsession with all things reality, so I often get texts or e-mails with the news of reality celebrity sighting (I’m saving my recent run-in with Southern Charm’sShep Rose for another day) ranging from “I think I was just cut off in traffic by Whitney Sudler-Smith’s mom Patricia…I know because there was a giant Hermes in the back window” to “Here’s a picture of Teen Mom’sKieffer Delp’s dilapidated car in the parking lot of the Brunswick County Courthouse” which may have been my favorite until now.
And furthermore, if you are so upset that people are “unjustly” calling you a whore, and you don’t want women resorting to those insults, why is that the only insult you’re ever resorting to? These are real questions for Claudia, who calls herself a journalist. I’m investigating and I want answers.
It seems to me that it should be Porsha who is upset with Claudia, I mean I’d be pretty pissed if someone, for basically no reason, called me a prostitute on national television and then didn’t even have the proof to back it up. That’s some slanderous libelous hearsay and I am misusing legal jargon cause I got my law degree from the same $19.99 internet correspondence course that Phaedra Parks did. The one where long-term thinking and recidivism rates are like huuuuhhhh? The same legal school where they don’t teach you that marrying an ex-con exponentially increases the likelihood that you’ll be married to a prisoner at some point. What happens on air mattresses in the ghetto at 2 am renders one dumb and useless, I suppose!
Demetria reveals it was never her intention to get into with Phaedra Parks, but Phaedra started it by questioning her career, her relationship, and being rude – which obviously spiraled into a major argument during a recent cast trip to Puerto Rico. Likewise Claudia never intended to have issues with NeNe Leakes!
“When I started my conversation with Phaedra it was not supposed to go that far,” Demetria insists. “They were all on the other side of the table being mad disrespectful. I felt shade and I wanted to address it.”
