Thanks for all your support week after week. It means a lot! Yes you can add director to the list of many things that make up NeNe Leakes.
Lisa and Kim meeting: I always find it interesting to watch a person wiggle their way out of a LIE! (Note the person that's ALWAYS having a meeting and or explaining something. Jesus.)
The Alter Ego Shoot: This was something I was planning to do with photographer Derek Blanks. During our meeting, Derek and I came up with the idea to invite all the ladies and we decided I would be the director! Loved it! Trust me, I have my differences with the girls but as far as being fair and genuinely wanting all the girls to look beautiful and have a good time, I was the one for the job!
I was surprised to hear the girls saying things about me being director when it was my event and I was the one extending the invite. My idea was for all of us to poke fun at ourselves based on the things people had said or thought about us. I asked Kim to be a black girl in one of the shots. If you remember, last year she said she was a black woman trapped in a white woman's body. I put in a call to Kim because as I said earlier, I wanted all the girls happy. We ended the call by agreeing to sleep on it and try to come up with something that works for the both of us. I never called Kim and she never called me back.
When I arrived at the shoot, I was told by the producers that Kim agreed to be a Stepford wife and mistress! I didn't question it, I just moved on (note kim's comment about the short black wig.) Needless to say, working with the girls in the end turned out GREAT!
PS: People will find fault in anything and I could comment negatively on some of the things Kim is saying in her blogs, but I usually step on TRASH not pick it up! I love my fans!
I didn't like when Kim said wearing the black wig was just as bad as being a black girl. Something about that comment just didn't sound right to me.
I love NeNe, you seem to keep it real most of the times...but sometimes I find you, Lisa and Sheree a little bit messy! But hey I like messy that is why continue to watch the show. IMO RHWOATL is much better than the NJ HW....
I loved the maxi ddresses you and Lisa wore around the pool on your trip to LA and would love to find one for myself. Will you tell me where you purchased them? A Faithful Housewives Fan.
I didn't like when Kim said wearing the black wig was just as bad as being a black girl. Something about that comment just didn't sound right to me.
NeNe, Kim says she never agreed to be a mistress, and why would anyone? Why would the producers lie to both you? I hope this is address in the reunion. Also, why do you and the girls wait a week before getting your blogs in? The RHONY always have theirs uploaded the day AFTER a new episode airs, NOT an entire week later. If you wanna be the #1 show on the network, you have to work for it...it's not enough to say you love your fans (P.S. you have to SHOW it too).
Ok...Kim blogged and you finally blogged. I don't understand why everyone is so late on posting...if they even post at all (hello Sheree). Oh let me guess...she's much too busy with her fashion line that she doesn't have the time to write a 5 minute blog yet again. Maybe Bravo needs to get new housewives that don't forget about the show that helped them get their start!
Luv you NeNe, I think you did a great job as a director, pulling the best out of all the women Kim is such a good actress, on so many occasions wonder what happened happened at the shoot? You tried :)
May her alter ego should of been a "deer in headlights look" Ive seen that look a thousand times.
What happened to Nene? Last season you were relateable and kind. This season it seems that you are very negative and drinking your own Kool Aid. Being judgemental doesn't suit you.
I used to like you as the favorite housewife, but lately you just seem to be hating on everyone this season. And Kim is not the only one talking behind peoples back, looks like everyone is. Own up to that fact please. Get it together Nene!!
Good morning Nene, Thanks for FINALLY blogging, of course I know all you guys are busy. The alter egos shot was fab and it should put Derek on the map. Great idea! This season, so far you seem to be the catalyst for so many of the things that are right and wrong about the show. You are so quick with your comments, it is easy to put others down and feel justified but none of us is perfect. Contrary to what you make think, location does not make a person ghetto...attitude does. Of course I will be watching this week to see you acting in the role of Kim, see ya.
Nene, I am proud that you are making a career for yourself. I do think that it is good to speak your mind but not when it is to put someone down. This is crazy. And Karma is a bitch.
Nene, i do like you the reason why because you were "keepin it real" this season though you seem catty like some of the other ones on cast. last season kim was your girl yall two were like sisters for real and left with you at sheree's party. Also didn't want to invite sheree to Brielle's party until she cleared it with you. that was a real friend from what i saw. I guess when she started hanging with sheree--whom you labeled as fake, now kim in your eyes was fake, but at the end of the day you singing about her in that limo was wrong even though you had a drink or two. you and sheree both ganged up on kim at the intervention and thats because she in your eyes was suppose to be intimidated. the only reason why sheree is hanging on to your coat tail this season is because the fans and media loves you--thats all sheree is just like kim said an opportunist. when you left the dinner and ran after sheree who in her words was going to beat kim a## that wasn't classy. in the back of your mind you know Kim was your real friend not sheree no real friend would have you outside waiting to get in to her party, wouldn't happen. I'm glad you got over that but you need to pick your battles wisely. i hope that you do grow up and leave the cattyness alone. you see Kim is real and at the end of the day I would want kim to have my back 100percent, sheree is only your friend because of who you are this year other than that rewind those tapes from last season and then when you do get at me and tell me who is your real friend Kim or Sheree? i know the answer i hope you do to, your husband even said last season, that was a friendship of convenience. I took it to mean Sheree needed Kim's friendship to get her ahead. This year she's using you and its sad you dont even see it. Peace and Realness! J.
Hi NeNe,I would like to start by saying ur by far my FAVORITE REAL HOUSEWIFE!!! I respect your mind.I'm so sick of reading all the negative blogs and comments others are leaving"I think u make the show"You don't appear to be the jealous type as people want to betray u as.I love the relationship u and Lisa have keep it real I personally think the others are jealous of that friendship the both of u ladies have much fun together(after all u two r the only two that goes home to a husband)...lol...I know ur not jealous of Kim or Kandi as people are saying Kim still has this secret man no one has meet to this date and Kandi has a man whom a lot of viewers I talk to also think he's a little sweet!!! We know he's not Dwight type....lmao...NeNe keep the show going ur the BEST!!!Consider working with Tyler Perry.
Nene: I liked you better last season you seemed more honest and downed to earth. I don't understand why you always think the other women owe you an apology for talking behind your back when every episode you are doing the same?? Im not defending Kim at all she has her own issues but from what I've seen in the previews I think you went to far. I don't know who or what gives you the authority to act like you are above everybody else..
Hey NeNe! You are FABULOUS!!!!!! The ONLY reason I watch RHOA is YOU! So, go on with your bad self!!!! You make me smile AND laugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sincerely, Tam. E. (You remind me of an old girlfriend that I haven't seen in so long it makes me sad. I wish I could find Jennifer C., as we have lost touch so watching you will have be the next best thing...sigh)
They don't BLOG earlier because their embarrassed on how they came across the week of.... It's pure Shame !
I beleive all of you are messy, moreover, the show has a tendency to become boring when you all focus on Kim so much. It seems as if you (Nene) like to keep them all confrontational regarding Kim and as a black woman it is becoming old. The (Let's beat up on the white girl because we believe she is weak)syndrome. How about you all talk about Sheree and how she feels as if she is much better than you all. There are a host of things that you all can dwell on that has nothing to do with Kim and I feel that Kim is well within her right to respond to you all the way she does. Khandi is also a nice person so please stop trying to drag her into the mess of he said she said, she is really trying to avoid it. However, I know the show is taped and done, but this season Deshawn really should have remained on the show because it appears that no one the producers bring in will be as messy as Lisa, Sheree and You. Good luck, I love the show but OMG let's do some other activities besides freedom parties and fashion shows. Where are the benefits with all this money?
Who cares?? You are FAB-U-LOUS! Haters make the world go round. .some EMBRACE them! If it were not for haters you wouldn't be who/what you are today. If you don't have at least one hater. .you are not doing your job! I will be in ATL the weekend of Sept. 25 and I would LOVE to hang with you and Dwight! I love the 6th housewife! You are my favorite by far! Email me!
HEY GIRL I KNOW THATS RIGHT I ADMIRE YOU FOR STAYING TO WHO YOU ARE AND NOT CHANGING FOR ANYONE. IM THE SAME WAY I SAY WHATS ON MY MIND AND KEEP IT MOVING. BUT YOU MIGHT HAVE TO LET YOUR FRIENDSHIP WITH KIM GO B/C I ONLY SEE IT GETTING BAD FROM HER ON OUT.
Looking at the footage, it appears that it was Derek's idea to include the others (hence the glance you made at this suggestion since you thought it was about you), and your idea to direct.
Ok Nene, i have weekly conversations with friends about you and the way you act on the show, are you for real. Like really where did you get your wealth from, are you educated at all do you have your own money or is it all from your husband. The nerve of some of the things that come out of your mouth. You are the ghettos person on the show and to speak of fake(your comment when you were in Cali) you are also the fakest of them all. For the purpose of laughing is why i watch, i cant understand why grown women sit and talk about each other what gives.To be honest the only person on the show that actually holds her own is Kandi and she isn't a housewife yet! I use to like Lisa until i realized that she was as much a trouble maker as you are so i had to give her the boot. Flip you over the couch please!
NeNe I love you girl keep doing your thing. I saw you when you came to Essence Fest and Lisa and you guys were just so down to earth and funny and appoarchable. Anyway, the only thing I want to say is that Kim is a train wreck at least that is what t.v is showing her to be and you are a mistress, when you guys went to see King Tut and she said that she and Greg would go somewhere and have a glass a wine I was itching for you to tell her, "Hell know trick, I wouldn't leave my dog alone with you let alone my man!!" LOL. kandi on the other hand shouldn't be on the next season she brings nothing just a slot that was empty hell I would have rather seen T-Boz than her as on of the housewives. Kim is not a housewife she is living off of what someone elses husband gives her she is jealous of you guys who would marry that. I put in my bid to be a part of the reunion, love the book hope I actually get to meet all of you guys, cause I'm truly a fan. Oh tell Dewight that the girls here in Charlotte, NC love him too can you go to the producers and tell them to ditch Kandi next season and just add Dewight to the mix or for you and Dewight to have your own show now that would be great television. Take care,
Hi Mrs.Leakes,I think u did a marvelous job with the "Alter Ego"photo shoot! I also commend u on inviting the others to participate"You didn't have to",but yet and still want to criticize u on how messy u are.I think u mean well they just have to see beyond Kim playing the victim"ALWAYS" she says all her vindictive remarks,but yet ur the messy one.You all are right to handle her she deserves it!!! In her blog she made derogatory statements about u and Sharee u handled it very well I must say u didn't stoop to her level of ignorance! You,Lisa,Dwight,Michael,and maybe Sharee can hang out and still keep the viewers watching,on the other show we can have Kim and Kandi the two Miss America's that would be boring because they bring nothing to the show! P.S. Continue to keep us as viewers happy! Please let Kandi know ur not jealous of her in any aspect because I think she'll be trying to write a song about that next since Kim an AJ has been her inspiration so far! I'm with u if we say her voice just ok why we have to be HATERS... I'll be glad when they find another word to use!!! Keep it real.
NeNe I adore you so much and truly believe that you made the Real Housewives of Atlanta the success it is today!!
Are you a bit upset that you did not record on the track Tardy for the Party with Kim? Could that be part of the fight you keep going with Kim and now Kandi? For someone you just met (Kandi)their is a lot going on. You can't get in on every little piece of success, everyone has a turn in the spot light..
Nene, the shoot was great! You are right, Kim is always explaining herself but i am willing to be that Sheree is not far behind on "needing to explain" herself. I cannot wait until Thursday's show b/c from the previews, seems like Sheree has a bit of a jealous streak in her. Which would account for all the comments she made last season - just bitter. Was bitter at you for having Greg and a nice home (she said those things along with Kim) - now bitter at Lisa for having a fashion show with CLOTHING.
It would be very interesting to see the final pictures from the photo-shoot. Derek has individual pictures of you on his website, but not from the photoshoot. Do you think you can arrange for us to view them?
NeNe I think u are great. I really wish u and ladies would step it up with being better friends. You ladies are so blessed. Just remember that!
I think you did a great job directing the alter ego photo shoot. Can't wait to see the photos. Love watching you girl!!
Love you NeNe,didn't you tell greg before going to the photo shoot about kim being the Mistress,and not when you arrived?
Don't know what it is about this season but I've never seen such hypocrisy in my life! You can't control what people will say or do but you have control of what you make of it. In order to move past former issues, you can't keep doing the same things over again. Move past this elementary banter and look at the "real" issues in your lives. Love the Housewives but this she said she did is growing old by the episode.
I think you are the beath of fresh air that the show needed. You are who you, hate it or love it. You are real and make no excuses for it....that in a nutshell is why you make the show. Everyone else is simply "trying" to catch up. I have to give it to you. Your relationship with your husband is so refreshing to see. I can see that he brings the balance that a good, strong, do right man does to a strong woman like you. You might want to put a little but in Kandi's ear. I'm just sayin' The difference between you and the other women on the show is....they have to try hard to be something that just comes naturally for you. In the words of my second fav. househusbandman Dwight....."how dreadful"
Nene what happened to you?
I loved you last season, you seemed very genuine. However, this season something has definitely changed. You no longer seem genuine, good hearted or funny. The comments that aired from your trip with Lisa to Beverly Hills made it seem like you were trying too hard to look like you fit in. I was embarrassed for you. If you can't run or get out of a car in heels they don't belng in your feet.
Candy seems like a nice person, I don’t know why you and Dwayne felt the need to rip her apart. Does that make you fell better about yourself? Pull it back girl and get yourself together.
I just want to say that you did your thing on that pole girl... LOL. Honey the look on your husband's face was WOW! I like the fact that you want all of the housewives to enjoy each other and have a good time together. Keep up the good work and i hope everyone will let all of the DRAMA go.
You are my favorite! You make the show worth watching..I really want to try a MISS THANG it looks tasty. I have been watching you since day one and you are the one with the least drama:) May god bless you always! LOTS OF LOVE:)
You were my favorite last season, but this season you have become just a messy as the other ladies. I don't understand why our shows have to be full of drama and negativity.
They can say what they want about you but the truth is that you MADE this series! Nobody would be watching without Nene! I must admit that some of the arguments and silliness turn me off, that's why I'm hoping that after this season they'll just do away with all the others and give you a show by yourself! I think part of the problem between you and the other ladies is that you are so damned entertaining at times, they get lost in the Nene show and it bothers them. I honestly don't understand what's going on with Kim, at this point who knows who is telling the truth. And I'm glad you mentioned the wig comment - I actually rewound it to be sure she said what she said. I don't dislike Kim, but her true colors are starting to show!
NeNe!! you are the bomb!! keep doing you honey, don't change i rush home to watch you every week, and keep telling kim the truth she needs to here that.
What has happened to you this season? You have turn into a mean, mean person that seems to be angry at the world. You are turning this show into a serious downer. Stop it already. Go do something productive.I can't stand your constant negative remarks on all the other girls, most especially Kim.
You talk about everyone. Why shouldn't she do the same?
Nene, you are getting a little bit egotistical this season. You were my favorite last season, as well as everyone else's, but it seems like it's gone to your head this season. STop ripping on people and being so bossy and telling us how fabulous you are. Tone it down.
Nene i personally think that you are an instigator!!!!! whenever there is a problem or a he say/ she say moment you are always in the middle of it. Don't you think it's time for you too grow up and stop acting like your in JR high school. You need to distance yourself from the petty things sheree and kim do because honestly they are not your friends. They need to grow up too.
NENE I ABSOLUTELY ADORE YOU. YOU ARE REAL AND YOU CALL OUT BULLSHIT. I TOTALLY VIBE WITH YOU AND IF THERE WAS NO NENE, THERE WOULD BE NO REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATL..TRUE TALK
NeNe luv u girl but, this season I see a little jealousy going on when u wives get together, and someone is getting more attention than you. U got it going on. Don't be so insecure.
Kim wrote Tardy for The Party and she later showed it to Nene on the show and They sang it together as the cd played. The recording was by her daughter's music coach. People try and stay with me, if you get up and run to get munchies and sippies you will miss things. If everyone will take careful note, NeNe is always at the root of all evil on the show. She brought Kim into it and does not like it that she was a big hit and has been sabotaging Kim ever since. Think, if NeNe says she heard it from Kim, so don't say who you heard it from and does that several times...word goes around town and pretty soon Kim is blamed for Nene's spreading rumors. I saw this exact thing in the 9th grade. I wonder what grade NeNe was in when she dropped out of school and later became a sort of entertainer?
