NeNe Leakes

NeNe shares her thoughts on the Diana/Marlo drama.

on Sep 25, 20130

This episode blew me away!

First my meeting with Mr. Trump: Mr. Trump and I met during my time on Celebrity Apprentice. We had this connection that I’m happy to say lasted! I find him really cool. We all know he's been married a few times and divorced, so I thought who better than Mr. Trump to seek pre-nup and blended family advice from! His advice was pretty much what I was thinking: GET A PRE-NUP!

My lunch date with some of my Atlanta Bridesmaids: This was supposed to be a Sex in the City lunch with my girls to celebrate my getting married again. Diana Gowins is a longtime girlfriend of mine with whom I've shared a lot. We have been really close over the years. I love her like a sister! We like to call her the protective one, the security, the gate keeper, and Miss Territorial because Diana always questions when someone new is around. She has an uncomfortable attitude when new people are introduced into our circle. I wanted to tell all the girls who I had chosen to be in my wedding just because, but they certainly had no right to tell me who can or cannot be a part of my special day. Don't get me wrong, these are my friends and I do cherish their advice, but I’m a smart woman and I get it! Diana feels Marlo is around to ride off my coat-tails or to try and seek out opportunities that I might have. Is her point valid? It might be and it might not be, but one thing is for sure: I have two good eyes and I’m a good judge of character, so have no fear, Diana, I got this!

I wasn't sure at first who this Marlo whacko was, then I remembered she was the trouble maker a couple of seasons ago with a pretty big rap sheet. Really and NeNe etc couldn't figure what the problem was.  What a joke?  First of all that many BridesMaids will definitely cause a problem and when you throw in a perpetual trouble maker what do you expect? The wedding was very nice, Over The Top...Way over the Top. Ne Ne you aren't a queen or major star but you have such a very very high opinion of yourself...You were only a bride.....Anyway I wish you and Gregg and the family the best, and in the future pick better friends.

nene was  right on point when she set Diana straight and Diana got it, she realized she was being a problem and not a friend, she may have her own personal thoughts about marlo, but this is not her wedding and they all need to be for the bride, I also loved how nene handled the kids that was something for greg to handle and she left right in the lap it belonged in with grace and class, it's so nice to watch something that is bringing healing to some people which mean it gone be some love in the heart!!! congrat's nene

Wow Nene.  After watching the argument between you and Damion, I lost a bit of respect for you .  You and Greg were together the first time over 15 years, which means when you got together, his children were minors.  Even if they weren't, my point is this:  As the adult, it's YOUR job to reach out to form a relationship with THEM.  As his wife, you become part of the family which means you should be able to contact them or, take Greg the phone, and watch him while he calls his children and invites them over. They are bitter because they had to grow up without their father while watching him raise YOUR child for years and then have another one with you.  And Greg isn't immune to my wrath either.  If he kept you out of the loop with his children, how is gonna let you yell at them like that?!  Since evidenty he caused the problem, he should've been doing the talking - to you and his children - in that therapy session.

Diana was dead wrong. I am very disappointed in her. She comes off very angry and childish. These women have done nothing to her personally. I am a little disappointed in you as well because as a friend you should have not have busted Lexis out like that at Mr. Chow's and then have the nerves to get mad at her for calling you out on it. Marlo has never hidden who she is and I am waiting to see what happended between you guys that she is no longer your friend. You kinda a wierd friend I must say. It is your way or the highway. Cynthia is drama free and I believe that is why you guys get along.

Nene,

-Diana’s possessiveness completely depleted the potential bonding process of the Sex and the City luncheon.   

-Your wedding planner was completely disrespectful as she failed to dress and behave professionally.  Profanity…really?

 -Marlo haters fail to understand a few very important elements; she’s funny, pretty and appears to be a good friend to Nene.

Nene I really liked you right from the beginning of the first season of Housewives of Atlanta but I'm not sure I like the Nene that I see in this show.  First of all I think these over the top weddings especially the second or third time around is ridiculous.  I think the spot light has gone to your head.  I want to see the old Nene that made me laugh - that kind person yet firm when talking to a friend.

I tried so hard to not be judgmental about reality TV shows, but after taking the time to what several I am just amazed at how easily people are willing to lose every ounce to dignity they have just for money.  It is even more disappointing that black people want to try to out perform their white counterparts by upgrading "ghetto" in hopes making it look cool.  "Fist-bumping" did not work for Michelle Obama, it will not work for anyone else.  And yet "my people" just keep right on trying.  I wish it would stop.  NeNe you and all your "sistas" look ridiculous!

Nene you did the right thing in getting rid of that wedding planner.  She was totally unprofessional.  What business woman curses at her client,, shows up late  and gives excuses why she doesn't have the work done.  I have a feeling she doesn't talk to other clients or treat other clients in this behavior.  At times you can be a little extra, but this time I was definitely team Nene.

Why is everyone blaming NeNe for Greg not being a part of his kids lives. Yes NeNe has her ways, but noone can keep Greg away from his kids but himself if he really wanted a relationship with them. Hell Greg wasn't even communicating with his only brother and sister. And there is no way that NeNe had anything to do with that. So the common denominator of the problem is Greg...period. And I don't know why people are still talking about how NeNe handles things. If you watched the RHOA, you should know how NeNe is. And if you still act like you don't know NeNe, here she is....NeNe has a ghetto mentality who eventually was determined to make it in life. After making it in life, success blew her head up because she wasn't used to having anything; however underneath trying to talk proper and act like a diva, she is still ghetto and she will still get loud and crazy with someone if things are not going her way or if she feels like you are doing her wrong. And that's NeNe. There are more components to NeNe, but that is basically who she is, and more than likely that will never change.

Ugh. Just saw the meeting with the wedding planner.  NeNe needs to eat some humble pie.

Well I just saw the show.  NeNe was totally out of line when it can to communicating with Gregg's son.  He didn't curse her out or anything.  She should have listened to what he had to say.  She now wants to have this relationship with these children but this should have been addressed a long time ago.  These children have been neglected and disregarded.  Personally, I wouldn't want a man who disregards his children!  If you do that to your own blood, what will you do for me?

Diana is your real friend, Marlo is a "ratings" friend.  Dump her.

maskedblogger

Marlo is so ghetto.  She's a violent felon who slashed someone's face and the person later committed suicide.  That's who NeNe calls a friend.  This whole wedding thing with Greg is STUPID.  They were married before, the never really were separated, and then this big wedding for ratings.  It's dumb with a capital D.  NeNe has no talent, all she does is scream, yell, threaten and act like she's a real Diva.  She's no actress, each of her parts were nothing but something written for her nasty personality.  She ever leaves Bravo, she's done.  The ex stripper is still there, just had some surgery and pays more for her clothes and makeup these days.

Ms. Diana is a ATTENTION SEEKER!!!! She is a very toxic person to look at Ms. Nene, other bridemaids , characters. Its pretty sad, ITS ABOUT NENE!!! not you, Diana!!! Its always  a demon lurking among the circle!! WE COULD HAVE BEEN BORN ON THE SAME DAY, BEEN FRIENDS FOREVER, BUT WANTS YOU CROSS THAT RED LINE!!!!  I WOULD HAVE TO LEFT YOU GO!! THESE SISTERS ARE TRYING TO HAVE A GOOD TIME WITH NENE!! A CELEBRATE OF A LONG LOVE THAT HAS BEEN FOUND AGAIN!!! I DONT SEE NO ONE TRYING TO TAKE FROM NENE!! ALL I SEE IS NOTES FROM A SCANDAL!!!!!!!!!, A  DOWN LOW SISTER!!!!!,LOL!!!!!! JUST PURE  JEALOUS,ENVY,RESENTMENT, OF SUCCESSFUL RIVAL!!!!!!!!!!!

NeNe,

It's your wedding! I understand Diana is a long time friend...I get that. I also know that you can recognize seasonal people in your life. I agree Marlo is probably seasonal. Because she is beyond thirsty, she is hungry. (No offense Marlo). I believe you selected the women because they are special in your life right now or in your past.

There is nothing wrong with them being apart of the picture of your "now moment". You are marrying Greg, not the girls. If its one thing I know you know how to do.....that is dismiss a broad!

 

So stress not over what Diana is talking about, she is just concerned about loosing her place in your heart. I don't think she will. There is too much history there. Let her know you don't need that much protection from her. You need the freedom to develop new friendships if you choose.....I'm just saying

When RHOA began, NeNe had already ending her stripping career, what was she doing for a career at that time?  What are her skills other than stripping?  I'm just asking questions, not trying to throw off on her.  Was Gregg the sole provider and doing that well that she was a real housewife?

Your ego and big head is back. You had become nice again and humbled down, now you are becoming insufferable once again. Sorry your show is boring. I cannot watch any longer. I also think it is horrible to use Greggs kids as a storyline. I have heard their side of the story. They were totally ignored by you and their dad. How many people even knew Gregg had this many kids? They are hurt and forgotten. Sure, bring them on for a storyline, because they have gotten the word out how they have been treated, that ;scene' was nothing but damage control on your part. And your comment that YOU helped the Leakes name was so out of line and had to hurt them, once again. Your attitude really sucks again. So full of yourself. blah

All of you that have posted "NEGATIVE" words about "NENE" sound like "HATERS" and you all are jealous because you are not "NENE." If you don't like what she says or how she does things then don't watch "HER SHOW." She handle the wedding planner just as I would. She needs to see some results and not a yellow notebook pad with lines drawn on it. Lets keep it real. As far as Diana, Diana should and needs to put her dislikes about Marlo to the side because at the end of the day Nene and Marlo are friends and this is about Nene not Diana and Marlo. It really don't matter who Diana likes but if Diana is a true friend of Nene she will leave Marlo alone and stand next to her in the wedding because that's what Nene wants. Its Nene's day not Diana's day.  Diana give your opinion to Nene about Marlo and move on. Diana be the "LADY" Nene know you can be.

First I usually stay away from watching wedding shows but I caught the moment with you, Gregg and his kids and I will give you props for trying to work through whatever issues you guys have.  I was happy to see the session end pleasantly and with new pledges from both sides to do better.  In reference to your bridemaids, you should've probably pulled Diane and Lexis to the side and not in front of the group, however I know this is tv and Bravo is not going to miss out on whatever drama they can get.  And I'm a firm believer if you say somethig about a person behind their backs you better be prepared to face them to say it to their face when the time comes.  Lexis unnecessarily went in on Diane, which seemed alittle manipulative.  And I maybe in the minority but I like your loyalty to Diane (even though she's acting like a jerk), it seems she's probably actually the truest friend you have.  And I have to laugh at a poster saying you're copying Kim....you earned your OWN money and you're not living off a spouses check, so I'm not sure what comparsion they were trying to make.  I may have to actually start watching the show on a regular basis.  Even though there are times you come off snobby, I do like your interactions with Gregg, your sons and now your stepchildren.  Good Luck and much success and remember to be humble with the blessings now bestowed on you.

Nene, you need to come back down from the bubble you are in and get real with yourself and those around you.

Since when does a girlfriend call out another one in front of a gang of women. You are definately letting the fame

get to your head. Stop acting like a Rich Diva cause nobody likes it. Be yourself and keep real. That's why we liked

you in the first place. And learn how to treat people with respect because the person you put down today, may be the ass you kiss in the future..........

Based on this episode I will have to assume that non of the ladies are indeed NeNe's tru friend. If they were, someone would have pulled her to the side and said "its bridesmaid and not bridemaid". Talk about irritating!

NeNe, it is "bridesmaids" not "bridemaids." You mispronouncing this 50 times was driving me crazy!

 You are so right about Lexis; she did not deserve the treatment she received.  I felt (and feel) sorry for her.  She is so much more deserving of friendship than that lap-dog wannabe Diana.  Open your eyes, Nene and see who your real friends are.

Tell it! So agree. I watched snipits of the show I believe 2x and the best part was the bridemaid drama, other than that she is trife! One other snipit I watched she was talking to her son about homeschool and living in LA, she acts like she is doing it to the point where she can't rent an efficiency apartment in LA and still live in ATL. She is Hollywood's dream- will sell her soul for anything.

@qifar who cares how she says it? It's her personality not her education, she's got the $$$ anyways and education had real nothing to do with it, it's called personality.

 @qifar I think if you told that to her  fake tow-headed haughty face she would still insist on saying the ridiculous sounding  "BRIDE-MAID"......         For some reason these ghetto fabulous chicks think it's nerdy or "not cool" to speak properly. I really don't think NeNe would care about trying to sound intelligent, even though the way she speaks makes her look and sound like an idiot.  She just thinks that everything about her is FABULOUS and you have not seen nuthin' like the likes of NeNe Leakes hunni chile.  

 

OMG I cannot wait until she is cut down a few notches.  Quite a few...

 

It can't happen soon enough. 

 

And it WILL happen. 

 

Then NeNe can go lunch with the likes of Sheree....... where she belongs.

 @Bravofan4ever

 Bravofan4ever, is the show called Real House Wives? Kim was not a house wife. Kim was sleeping with Big Pappa, a married man. Nene was a dancer and so what.  I would prefer to be a dancer than a mistress at least she was making her own money compared to Kim.

 @dbm2012

 I don't know if you are watching the same show that I'm watching but it was stated that Nene didn't keep herself away from Greg's kids. Greg kept his kids away from Nene. And it seems he discouraged any kind of interaction between Nene and his kids. I would like to know what kind of man does this but I guess that question is for another time.

Purple86

 @dbm2012 I agree with you totally. She is using Greg's kids as a diversion for the more likely reason  her and Greg broke-up - infidelity, financial problems and Nene's inflated ego.

 @1Msprettyldy

 Well move over old Diana, as I see there is a new one in town. As others have stated, Nene started off with little to nothing but had a big head and mouth. Then she really did a drastic and humble change UNTIL she made a little money. So as others can clearly see, she has it in her to be humble, down to earth and just plain nice, but she chooses to act differently. You have to have tact. Money or no money no one has the right to talk to and dismiss people like she does. Now the Marlo and Diana issue, Diana should state her opinion to NeNe firmly and move on from it. Everyone can see the type of person Marlo is but if NeNe wants her in the wedding that is her choice. Diana is dwelling on the Marlo issue too much.

 @Sam64 What makes the mispronounciation worse is that she tries to sound "proper" when she talks.  Nene should spend less money on cosmetic surgery on more money on English classes or at least be a little more humble.

 @Sam64 Thank you all so much for saying that.  It is driving me f'ing INSANE as well.  NeNe thinks she is so smart and such a big A-list celeb and so much better than all of the athlete's wives....... and here she is saying "bride-maid" over and over like a classless ghetto rat. She wants all of the Hollywood people to think she is so uppity and worthy of them, but then she shows who she really is.  Anyone with class does not go around saying how rich and fabulous they are Nene.  You've already had one show cancelled......  Do you really think people are gonna come knocking your door down with all sorts of parts for you, miss Halle Berry wanna be but NEVER will be........??  You really cannot act Nene, and with an attitude like yours, no one is going to want anything to do with you.  That time is gonna come, sooner than later..........  I just hope we get to see you trying to backtrack and kiss ass..............

I think the end point of her question is "what the hell does Nene do" and yes you could probably replace nene's name with a dozen other non-housewives

 @Ceci2468  @dbm2012

 Listen closely... Nene admitted that she felt that the kids didn't like her because she may have somehow been a part of their estrangement from their father.  Greg left his wife with 5 kids and started a new one with Nene later.  Greg didn't mingle his kids with Nene because he was worried they wouldn't get along.  Greg chose Nene over his kids.
