When NeNe Leakes stormed out in the middle of the Real Housewives of Atlanta virtual reunion, she left her computer monitor on with a notebook shoved against the screen. On that notebook, were some notes NeNe had on hand for the taping.
It looked to a lot of people that NeNe wrote down pre-planned her reads against her co-stars. So much for being off the cuff, right? Meanwhile, Kandi Burruss seems to be the only one who actually complied with the rules. While the other Housewives admitted to having glam squads at their homes in the middle of the pandemic, Kandi did her own hair and makeup. She also came up with her own insults, off the top of her head too. Unlike some people…
Yvonna Momplaisir might be a mere “friend of” on Real Housewives of Atlanta. But for being a friend of, she is bringing plenty to the table. She might be summed up as a one-time NeNe Leakes friend and accomplice in Snake Gate. Either way, Yovanna proved she’s not taking the fall for anyone. On part three of the reunion, Yovanna sat down to tell them her side of the Snake Gate drama. According to Yovanna, NeNe set the whole thing up and she was just trying to help a friend out. We’ve heard that one before, right?
NeNe now infamously stormed off and didn’t bother to defend herself. But if NeNe was going to start the drama, Yovanna was going to finish it. Was this all a ploy for Yovanna to get herself a peach?
NeNe Leakes is having quite the season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Despite bringing little to that table (in my humble opinion), she stays in the news. And maybe that’s her end game. Doing the bare minimum on the show and then staying in the lime light on her own terms.
So far this season, we haven’t seen much of her. But we’ve seen her all over her Instagram and YouTube channel, ripping her cast mates to shreds. NeNe has accused Kandi Burruss of never being number one at anything in her life. She’s called Eva Marcille boring. She even reignited an old beef with Sheree Whitfield. NeNe couldn’t even finish filming the reunion when ex-accomplice Yovanna Momplaisir showed up to tell her side of the Snake Gate story. And let’s face it, storming off made NeNe look guilty as hell for starting the whole thing, just like Yovanna was saying.
Oh man, Real Housewives Of Atlanta season 12 has officially ended, and with it so many things we hold to be near and dear – like NeNe Leakes‘ dignity. Haaaa… just kidding. That got ripped off with a wig about 5 seasons ago!
NeNe never managed to return for the remainder of the reunion. Close your legs to married men; close your laptop to scary women! Eva Marcille predicts that NeNe was running scared after she learned her now-former friend Yovanna Momplaisir was secretly invited to the reunion and was coming with the good dirt. Yovanna accidentally spilled the tea by posting about it on Instagram. Not that NeNe wouldn’t have just ‘walked out‘ the second Yovanna appeared on the screen.
See, no good deed goes unpunished. NeNe was trying to promote her thirsty friend, Yovanna. However, these jump-offs always turn on their springboard. And the higher the heels the farther the fall!
During the latest episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion, NeNe Leakes walked out. It’s unclear if that is the end of her time on the reunion or if she will be back for more fighting on part 3.
The season 12 reunion concludes with one more episode. And that means we will have to sit through yet another Yovanna Momplaisir appearance. No one cares about Yovanna. Bravo just needs to stop trying to make Yovanna happen. No one wants to see her. Ever.
All of a sudden, NeNe Leakes has turned against Kandi Burruss in the press. Please tell me, what has Kandi ever done to NeNe? Seriously, can anyone name one thing that she’s ever done to this woman? Well, other than making more money than she does. NeNe has been shading Kandi in the press for her Real Housewives of Atlanta spin-off shows.
NeNe claimed that Kandi’s friendship with Kenya Moore is solely an alliance; i.e. it’s insincere. In turn, Kandi questioned how genuine NeNe’s friendship is with Wendy Williams. They’ve battled it out in the Instagram comments section, in interviews, and, of course, on the RHOA Season 12 reunion. NeNe cause major waves when she made this comment about Kandi: “Kandi just wants to be number one, you know she’s never been number one in anything that she’s done.” NeNe, what are you talking about? Kandi is a Grammy winner, who’s constantly turning a profit on her businesses. Oh, and she just got first place on The Masked Singer.
Pretty much no one leaves a successful reality show. Sure, it happens, but it’s just not the case with anyone who’s a Real Housewife. As per usual, NeNe Leakes is whining about how difficult it is for her to be on Real Housewives of Atlanta, issuing empty threats about how she might consider leaving. Girl, we all know that this show is the backbone for any side project that you may have going on. Let’s be honest, NeNe needs this show just as much as she needs it herself.
Despite her temper tantrums and reunion walk-outs, NeNe is not quitting this show. There’s just no way. No matter how unfair she feels she’s being treated, NeNe isn’t leaving. She did that once when she thought she was going to become a big Hollywood actress and we all know how that worked out. Or at least that is how her frenemy Sheree Whitfield feels.
It’s been years since we saw Phaedra Parks on Real Housewives of Atlanta. And if it weren’t for how dirty she did costar Kandi Burruss, I would take her back over NeNe Leakes any day. But before all that went down, Phaedra had the best shade, the best kids and the most dramatic marriage situation. She was a true renaissance woman to boot. A lawyer, mortician and creator/star of the Donkey Booty workout. Phaedra did it all.
And she gave us a truly real-life dramatic breakdown of her marriage with then-husband, Apollo Nida. Don’t get me wrong, it was more scary than dramatic when he showed up to get his things and stormed around their house, despite being on camera. But it was a moment that was the most real, even when reality tv sometimes scrapes for a storyline. I felt for Phaedra in that moment.
