Real Housewives of Atlanta fans have watched NeNe Leakes drag all of her co-stars this season. NeNe had a lot to say about cast member Kenya Moore’s marriage and split from husband Marc Daly. But I’m not sure that NeNe should be doling out marital advice. RHOA fans know that NeNe and her husband, Gregg Leakes, divorced in 2011, only to remarry in 2013. But Gregg’s diagnosis of colon cancer in 2018 strained the couple’s marriage as NeNe stepped into the role of caregiver.
But it looks like karma is returning to bite NeNe. Maybe it is the same karma that NeNe invoked when she wondered if her husband Gregg developed cancer because he cheated on her. Damn, NeNe! That was harsh.
Every cast needs a good overhaul every now and then. In my humble opinion, unless we have a golden cast full of storylines, these shake-ups should be on the semi-regular. But I’ve said it before and I will say it again, Real Housewives of Atlanta is my favorite franchise. Season after season, they deliver. Even when their storylines are meh, the cast is strong enough to entertain their audience.
But as much as I love my RHOA, I could always do without Miss Nene Leakes. I can’t even hide it, guys. I’m sorry if you don’t agree with me but I must speak my truth! Despite being an OG and central cast member, NeNe brings nothing to the table. She hasn’t since her glory days of Kim Zolciak and Sheree Whitfield feuds. On top of that, she can’t stand to see any of her castmates succeed. For someone always talking about her own success, you would think she would be happy that there is enough to go around. Finally, she regularly refuses to film and storms off when things don’t go her way. See this past season’s reunion.
NeNe Leakes has never been shy about accusing people of nefarious activities. Perched high atop her soapbox on Real Housewives of Atlanta, NeNe has often been front and center in a quest to keep all focus centered around her. Unfortunately, sometimes those desperate bids for attention backfire and serve to diminish any redeeming quality left in someone’s otherwise questionable personality.
NeNe didn’t have a spectacular RHOA season. Much of her storyline was forced apologies because the rest of the cast was over her attitude. Now NeNe is under speculation for having a “secret lover” and the rumors are being fueled by none other than Kenya Moore. ‘Ol Ken might have a score to settle with NeNe, who ran her mouth about Kenya’s marriage. Now Kenya is speaking on NeNe’s supposed affair.
Normally, we love to keep things light and make sure our readers are entertained. We know that many people love to escape by reading our website and that’s something we understand. We also know that other times, our readers look to our site for that intersection of reality TV and other important news. Recently, our site has covered different aspects of the coronavirus pandemic.
In addition to the global health crisis, there are issues in this country that cannot be ignored. Recently, reality TV stars have been using their platforms to demand justice for George Floyd, a man who was killed on May 25 when a policer officer named Derek Chauvin shoved his knee into his neck. George told him, “Please, the knee in my neck, I can’t breathe.” According to CNN, witness Donald Williams told the policeman, “Officer, he’s not resisting arrest, you have your knee on him and you have handcuffs on him, he’s detained at this moment.'”
Over the weekend, some of your favorite reality TV stars attended protests. Others encouraged people to take action and speak up.
There have been some shade masters in the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast, past and present. NeNe Leakes is super shady, even if she has to write out and rehearse her insults ahead of time. Shade seems to be Kenya Moore’s source of oxygen.
Kandi Burruss can deliver a solid read when she’s provoked, usually by NeNe. Porsha Williams says some of the funniest things. Marlo Hampton isn’t afraid to go below the belt. There are a lot of shady ladies on this show, but who is the shadiest of them all?
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…
I have to admit, ever since “that b**ch from Clark” Yovanna Momplaisir jumped on the Real Housewives of Atlanta scene, I wasn’t exactly a fan. She ruined a perfectly good dinner party trying to get a name for herself. Then she was a key player in the whole Snake Gate debacle this season. Well, really, she was the fall guy for Nene Leakes.
But all that changed for me when Yovanna single-handedly saved the RHOA reunion. Not much was happening until she was brought in for part 3, and she made her limited time count. Just before she went on, NeNe stomped off, never to return. Yovanna alleges it’s because NeNe knew Yovanna was coming with receipts. And she was no longer going to be NeNe’s pawn in this mess. Yovanna told us that NeNe asked her to record her cast mates talking smack on her. While Yovanna promised to do so, she really didn’t. When NeNe let her take the fall, Yovanna decided that the thirst to be on the show wasn’t worth being a villain.
NeNe Leakes has been endorsing a Kim Zolciak comeback on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Understandably, Kim is hesitant to jump back in. She did not come across well (at all) during season 10. If you recall, she claimed, “racism isn’t all that real” during that reunion episode after feuding with Kenya Moore and NeNe.
Sure, she’s a mom of six who has mouths to feed and an RHOA paycheck can help with that. But, at least she has her own show with her family called Don’t Be Tardy, which just seems way more enjoyable to film.
