NeNe Leakes Explains Changes She Would Make To Real Housewives Of Atlanta

NeNe Leakes has 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.

While living life in front of the cameras, MeMe grabbed the spotlight from Eva Marcille’s wedding. When pregnant Porsha Williams complained of back pain, NeNe let you know her pain was worse. When former cast mate Kenya Moore showed up at a party thrown by Cynthia Bailey, NeNe demoted Cynthia from friend to co-worker. And as we all know, husband Gregg Leakes is suffering from colon cancer – but NeNe’s suffering outweighed his by miles. Petty, it’s what’s for dinner! The only person this season who gave it right back to NeNe was Tokyo tour guide Aya, who doubled down on “being on time” and left NeNe in the dust when she was late for group activities. After a turbulent season of losing friends, NeNe is speaking about who should stay, who should go, and who should join the next journey of RHOA. I have an idea, can we give Aya a peach?

NeNe Leakes

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! 

RHOA’s Gregg Leakes Finishes Chemo Treatments

I don’t think that anyone can dispute that Season 11 of Real Housewives of Atlanta has been a difficult one for NeNe Leakes. She ordered her fellow Atlanta Housewives to stay out of her closet during a get-together (I’m looking at you, Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss!) Obviously, they didn’t, which enraged NeNe and cost a cameraman his shirt. And we still don’t know for sure if NeNe pulled off then-pregnant Porsha’s belt. NeNe has severed ties with most of her  RHOA co-stars. She is actually very unhappy with former bestie Cynthia Bailey. Next time Cynthia had better give NeNe a copy of the guest list (if there is a next time!)

At Eva Marcille’s wedding, NeNe told Cynthia that she and husband Gregg Leakes had discussed separating. Gregg has been battling colon cancer, and the stress from his illness led to marital discord. Gregg took responsibility for his behavior and publicly apologized to NeNe. NeNe even wondered if Gregg getting cancer was karma for him cheating on her. It was hard to watch the couple bicker as they grappled with Gregg’s diagnosis. 

NeNe Leakes Explains Why She Is Bothered By Cynthia Bailey And Kenya Moore’s Friendship; Says Kenya’s Appearance At Party Was “Orchestrated”

NeNe Leakes has been dealing with a lot on Real Housewives of Atlanta this season. Her husband, Gregg Leakes is battling colon cancer, and NeNe has been having a hard time dealing with it. She also wonders if Gregg’s cancer diagnosis is some sort of karma. Then Kandi Burruss and pregnant Porsha Williams decided to go into NeNe’s closet, which is apparently a big “No No!” An angry NeNe tore a camera man’s shirt and possibly pulled off Porsha’s belt. Again- what is in that closet?

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.”

RHOA-NeNe-Leakes-Cynthia-Bailey

Cynthia Bailey has had a whirlwind season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Viewers watched as her only child, Noelle Robinson began her first year of college. We’ve also seen Cynthia’s relationship with sportscaster Mike Hill develop into something serious. But while one relationship was taking off, another one crashed and burned.

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.

Behind The Scenes Photos From Real Housewives Of Atlanta Reunion

After a season that got off to a super slow fashion-filled start, Real Housewives of Atlanta delivered with the finale episode. Actually, the season redeemed itself as soon as NeNe Leakes stormed into her closet and kicked out Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss. Oh, and she pulled off a cameraman’s shirt. And (allegedly) pregnant Porsha’s belt.

From that point on, the tension was thick and NeNe had more enemies than friends. There has been a lot of social media messiness and shade thrown ever since the reunion taping. NeNe actually unfollowed everyone from the show except for Marlo Hampton and Shamari DeVoe? What about her “little sis” Porsha and her other “little sis” that she talks shit about Eva Marcille? Yep, they’re unfollowed. Even Tanya Sam, arguably the nicest person in the cast, got unfollowed. Then again, NeNe was coming for her all season, so it was just a matter of time. So what exactly went down at the reunion?

NeNe Leakes

Age is certainly but a number judging by the season finale of Real Housewives Of Atlanta!

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.

NeNe Leakes

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.

She picked a fight with Tanya Sam over sunglasses during the Destin trip. She questioned Tanya’s relationship during the Tokyo trip. It seemed like maybe she just didn’t do well traveling, but she brought her ridiculous antics back to the ATL as well. She flipped out at Porsha Williams and Kandi Burruss for going into her closet. She even ripped a shirt off a cameraman and allegedly pulled off Porsha’s belt. Yep, a pregnant woman’s belt. Then, she made Eva Marcille’s wedding about her by telling Cynthia Bailey that she and Gregg might separate. Now, she’s talking shit about her own man. Again.
