NeNe Leakeshas been on Real Housewives of Atlanta for a minute now and she isn’t shy about telling you she’s an OG. Actually, NeNe isn’t shy about much of anything. Season 11 proved to be a trying time for NeNe and she wasted no time in making every single thing about herself. If a situation did not highlight her in some way, she made sure it did.
Real Housewives Of Atlanta is really milking the everyone vs. NeNe Leakes scenario for all it’s worth – and I am so glad! NeNe has been prancing around like Marie Antoinette with her wigs piled high on her fake haughty head and it’s time for a new queen [hair flip!]. Or no queen, and just a equal well-connected cast of women who have fun, light drama, and interesting lives.
Seriously, though, I’m excited by the insurgency of the rest of the cast with their unwillingness to uphold the narrative that NeNe has immunity. She doesn’t nor should she. It’s more than about time that NeNe’s wig glue melted! NeNe is essentially mad for the sake of being mad (or maybe, benefit of the doubt: there’s some stuff we, the viewers, didn’t see).
After a [low-rated, boring ass] season of making everything about how NeNe is feeling and not upsetting the NeNe cart, NeNe’s now accusing everyone of turning on her. She expects Andy Cohen to support her to get the other women in line. But it’s not going to go that way. Not this time!
It is safe to say that the warm sisterhood that NeNe and Cynthia Bailey shared is over, and Cynthia’s friendship contract is long gone. So, what is the cause of this drama? Former RHOA star Kenya Moore came to Cynthia’s wine cooler launch. And Kenya, who was very pregnant at the time, was just glowing when she twirled in. NeNe was not happy and called Kenya a “monster.”
NeNe Leakes and Cynthia have been friends since the early days of RHOA. As everyone knows, friendships have their fair share of ups and downs. Recently, anyone involved with NeNe experienced more of the downs, as she struggles to navigate her life in the shadow of Gregg Leakes’cancer diagnosis. Sometimes though, enough is enough. And no matter how much you love someone or value their friendship, wading through toxicity on a regular basis just isn’t worth it.
I don’t know when and where this development occurred, since I don’t feel like we’ve heard a word about this all season, but suddenly Cynthia Bailey is launching a wine cooler collection with Seagrams – which seems like it was really a ruse to launch the return of Kenya Moore. I mean, who could hate on a heavily pregnant lady, right? Oh, wait, NeNe Leakes could!
I have been racking my brain about where NeNe and Kenya’s latest issues stemmed from. NeNe finally confirmed they started over a random twitter question posed to Kenya that was the Bravo equivalent of Marry, Shag, Kill, except it was “Call, Text, Delete” between Porsha Williams, Andy Cohen, or NeNe. Of course, Kenya picked NeNe as her “delete.” So THIS is the origin of the animosity.
It’s been a rough season for NeNe Leakes on Real Housewives of Atlanta. She’s been caring for her husband Gregg Leakes as he struggles with colon cancer. And, clearly, she’s having a rough time. NeNe could even be projecting her situation onto the other ladies. In all honesty, that’s the most likely scenario.
