NeNe Leakes doesn’t have a problem spilling the "T" on her fellow Housewives.
On Sunday evening’s Watch What Happens Live: NeNe One-On-One, an interview with Andy Cohen, NeNe had plenty to say about some of the other ladies. And in typical form, the brutally honest Leakes definitely didn’t hold back.
And now, the highlights (or lowlights, if you're one of NeNe's
She took on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills bombshell Brandi Glanville first, referring to her as a “train wreck.”
“Just a wreck. Just a wreck," Leakes told Andy about Brandi. "She's just off the chain, she's off the hook [with] a lot of the things that she has to say, just so talkative." She added that Brandi has "a lot of stuff that she needs to not say. She's going to get red... She thinks she can get in people's faces and say whatever she wants to say."
But NeNe says her beef with Brandi is only when she’s tippin’ back the cocktails.
"I like her when she's not drinking,” NeNe explained. “Brandi and drinks don't work for me."
NeNe also said she recently ran into Brandi’s BFF Lisa Vanderpump.
"She's looking really thin," Leakes told Andy. "That's probably because of the Dancing With the Stars thing."
Regarding the (mostly) blonde crew from the O.C., NeNe isn’t a fan of them either.
“I don't connect with them, most of them, for some reason," Leakes said. "I almost want to recast Orange County. A couple of them are quite boring [and] can go!"
"Vicki is the boss, Ramona is the boss, I'm the boss," Leakes said. "All of us are original Housewives and we have a work ethic that is very different than the new girls that come on the show. All of us work our [asses] off."
Also on NeNe’s list of favorites is the table-thrower herself, Teresa Giudice.
"I feel for Teresa because there's something about being the first one in. When you're the first one in on one of these shows and somebody comes behind you, it's sort of like, 'Hold on, you need to respect the veteran. I was here first. You need to play on my territory.' So I kind of sided with Teresa in that area. Melissa, you came on her show. So you watched her on television and you wanted to be on the show like she was. No, girl, take a seat now! You're not a veteran."
"I like Jersey," Leakes admitted. "I just think they're such gangstas. I just love them. They're so entertaining to me. but you know what? They're getting a little too nasty."
Tell us: do you think NeNe is spot-on? Let us know in the Comments section below.
I agree that RHNJ is becoming too dark.I watch all the "housewive" franchises to see how women from different cities live,work,dress,etc.I do NOT watch to see women completely tearing each other down,especially when they're related.That's just not entertaining to me.
Nene is going to throw shade at Lisa and Brandi because she knows they are more popular than she is. Watch it girl. You're starting to sound a little jelly belly You were the brown Brandi until, I'm sure the execs at Glee and New Normal directed you to clean up your image.
I am a huge fan of all the housewives series and I agree that OC and NJ should be recast. I am over Tamra being the mean girl, over Gretchen and Slade and over Alexis, although I like the change I see in her husband this season. NJ's cast needs a few outsiders. Everyone is family and friends and the story line is getting old and boring. When something juicy does happen none of the cast wants to disclose what happened. Therese and her husband and children make the show. I don't agree with everything she has done but I look forward to her antics with her children and husband. Caroline is boring, Jacqueline is boring and always crying but her husband is HOT. I am no longer interested in Ashley. Please recast both series. A very loyal fan.
Just because Nene is a original housewife doesn't make her the boss! I think the whole cast should go and bring in some new one's...
NeNe was spot on about OC. Please, please, please re-cast.
1) I cannot stand Heather - she is boring and condescending. Please do not torment me any further because I cannot stand to watch her scenes. Her conversations with her husband are forced and strained. GET RID OF HER!
2) I am so over Grethchen - she is so fair weathered and not a true person or friend. She should have been gone long ago.
3) Tamra is a very jealous, unhappy, angry person with serious issues and I suspect a closet alcoholic. This is another person that should have been gone long ago. She needs to check herself into Betty Ford or Passages.
4) Vicki is straight gangster - love her (keep her)
5) Alexis is growing on me. I think she is putting on a brave face and should be given another chance (keep her)
6) the new girl - I love this chick's mom she is so righteous! (keep her - for now)
And yes, this was a READ!
Someone needs a large slice of humble pie! Nene, know this, anything that is full of hot air eventually deflates...
Bravo NeNe!!! You couldn't have said it any better about Brandi and the others. You're the real deal! When is your talk show coming? Move over Frankel, NeNe's gonna take over.
I love NeNe Leakes! She truly crack me up! if she has somethng to say she doesn't hold back! but she doesn't take behind backs she wll straight up say it to your face!!! i love her she a STAR and The Boss!!!
I agree with Nene....recast Orange County.....I am disappointed with how they represent the O.C. Too mean...too old to be taking sides...airheads.....my 23 year old daughter hates it when I watch them....we are 2 women from the O.C.!!
We all love a good fight...but no one seems to really want anyone else to be successful!
NeNe you were/are the same way Brandi is. You say exactly what is on your mind and so does Brandi that shouldn't be a problem LOL.
Shade Shade Shade that is all that came out of your month see you just like Brandi haha
Nene's ego needs a check. I would like Porsha, Phaedra and Kandi to return and recast the rest! She is far from the star in my eyes.
@Bosemom That is exactly why Nene threw shade at those two in particular, and she needs to stop it with all that Veteran crap talk too ... Why wouldn't she name Lisa as a Boss and an original?? She is, and Lisa is far more fabulous (natually) than Nene will ever be.
Kandi was right, Nene loves to throw some shade at others, but will get mighty offended when you throw some back .... I don't respect that.
@MissLizz1 You got that right ... Nene may be served some humble pie on day soon.
@Teres I think Jealousy has always been a downfall of Nene's, although she will not admit to it. You could see her embarrassment regarding her behavior and her appearance when Andy replayed old footage ... She knew she looked a hot mess, and realized that the only reason people tuned in is because there was a fascination with watching this woman who on one hand spoke of herself as though she were Diana Ross however, the reality was that Nene was just a train wreck, with bad teeth that people got a laugh from ... Truth.
The reality is further that Nene can say what she wants about Brandi, I have never felt compelled to turn off my TV because of Brandi however, I did not watch Seasons 2-4 of RHOA because I could not stand watching, and/or listening to Nene Leakes and that is the honest truth. Brandi has made me cringe at times, but Nene out right used to repulse me... just sayin
@Neszoe Oh, and another thing ... While Nene has "become" successful since being on the Housewives, Lisa Vanderpump Todd was hugely successful BEFORE RHOBH was ever a consideration. Nene is finally a rich bitch, but Lisa has long since been a very wealthy woman .... ANOTHER FACT ;-)
@Neszoe Yes, I realize that Nene is "currently" the highest paid of the housewives however, ... Let's not act like people can't, and often do, FALL as far as the have risen. That is a fate that usually befalls those who get a little too "caught up" in their new reality and persona ... Just ask Lindsay Lohan, M.C Hammer, Bobbie Brown, or anyone of the Backstreet Boys ;-) ... Everyone can achieve great success, but not everyone can maintain it .... FACT... just sayin.
