Season 11 of Real Housewives of Atlanta featured NeNe Leakes behaving badly. At a party at NeNe’s house, Kandi Burruss and a pregnant Porsha Williams entered NeNe’s closet. An enraged NeNe yanked a cameraman out of her closet, ripping his shirt. No one goes in NeNe’s closet without her permission. Maybe she should have an engraved plaque with a warning on her closet door. Just saying.
When NeNe’s former bestie Cynthia Bailey invited RHOA alum Kenya Moore to her launch party, NeNe once again got hot. When Kandi arrived with Kenya, NeNe was furious. She called Kenya a “monster.” NeNe also cut off Cynthia, because NeNe wasn’t given the chance to sign off on the guest list. Cynthia said she didn’t know that Kenya was coming.
Nene Leakes of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is never one to shy away from speaking her mind. The longtime Housewifefaces a lot of challenges this season, from the return of nemesis and new mother Kenya Moore, to continuing her feud with onetime friend Cynthia Bailey.
The “I said what I said” peach is now giving her castmates a rest from the drama and sounding off about her longtime marriage to husband and cancer survivor, Gregg Leakes. And although Nene has been absent from the first two episodes of RHOA season 12, She’s planning to make up for lost time with some eyebrow-raising revelations about her current state of errr, affairs.
Here come the Bravo brides! Love is in the air for a pair of Housewives who are prepping to tie the knot next year on a lucky day. Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey received a sweet proposal from her man, sportscaster Mike Hill, on July 26.
Mike popped the question at the opening of The Bailey WineCellar, and RHOA cameras were rolling. Cynthia was thrilled!
These days, NeNe Leakes talks about how much money she has almost as much as she shades Kenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey while pretending to be unbothered by their existence. However, that wasn’t always the case. During the beginning seasons of Real Housewives of Atlanta, NeNe’s husband Gregg Leakes was the breadwinner in their relationship. However, that changed when RHOA’s popularity skyrocketed. NeNe’s one-liners and her feuds with Kim Zolciak and Sheree Whitfield gave her a lot of notoriety…. and the paycheck to buy much better wigs. Well, sometimes anyway. We all know that wig selection isn’t exactly NeNe’s biggest strength, no matter how high her budget is.
Anyway, in a recent interview, NeNe spilled some of the details about the start of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. I will never forget Kim texting NeNe “you are a low budget bitch” back in Season 1. But, you know what: Kim wasn’t too far off about the financial situation. The salaries on the show were not nearly as high as they are today.
Nobody loves NeNe Leakes more than NeNe Leakes. She is the last OG standing on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and she’s not afraid to say it. On the season premiere, her absence was very clearly the elephant in the room. There was a lot to say ABOUT NeNe, but no sight of her. Following the premiere, she was absent for the second episode as well.
Can there be a successful season without NeNe? Kenya Moore is back, but NeNe isn’t taking her very seriously. In NeNe’s eyes, she’s the one and only star of the show. If you’re a fan of the “rich bitch”, you’ll be thrilled she made her return on the most recent episode. However, that doesn’t mean that she didn’t have A LOT to say prior to it airing (and after).
On last night’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta we finally caught up with Nene Leakes, who is now producing PSAs for the American Cancer Society about how hard it was for her to be married to a man who had cancer. I really just think Bravo should leave cancer alone, and I really also think the American Cancer Society needs to better in their vetting of spokespersons.
Now that Gregg Leakes is cancer-free and isn’t requiring NeNe to ‘care’ for him and uphold those wedding vows she took (twice!), she’s eager to rebuild their marriage. I’m frankly sick of Gregg being so phony. Look, I know he has to rely on NeNe for his living expenses because Senior Living Communities are depressing and don’t come with Bentleys, but honestly the way he goes overboard praising NeNe for her support and kindness while he was battling for his life, and it was frankly unbelievable.
NeNe Leakes returns on tonight’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta and it doesn’t seem like anyone is happy to see her!
Nene isn’t the only one making a comeback though. Marc Daly visits Atlanta, supposedly to reconnect with his wife, Kenya Moore and daughter Brooklyn, but the real reason is that he may be scouting locations for a new restaurant. When the visit doesn’t go as planned Kenya confides to her family that her marriage is on the rocks.
Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 12 is just getting started, and I like what I am seeing so far. NeNe Leakes has been missing for the first two episodes, but she is about to make her glorious return.
Kenya Moore also made a glorious return, twirling back onto the franchise and snagging her peach after sitting out Season 11. NeNe wasn’t happy about this turn of events. In fact, NeNe destroyed her long-time friendship with Cynthia Bailey because Cynthia invited Kenya to her launch event.
