Thanks to all of you who went out and purchased my book Never Make the Same Mistake Twice! The book tour has me really busy and I haven't been able to blog so I have a few things to touch on briefly from last week's episode.
Kim and I have never been as close as the show portrayed us to be. So whomever Kim decides to befriend is NOT a problem for me. I know who my true friends are!
I had only been around Kandi one time prior to her coming to King Tut. I'm a very fun and outgoing person and was trying to be a gracious host for an event I put together. From the moment Kandi entered the room, she was giving me nasty looks, which continued throughout the night. I had no clue as to why or where this was coming from. I'm a strong woman so for women who LACK STRENGTH I can be INTIMIDATING!
It always tickles me how people change things around! I don't walk around giving my opinion. I was asked what I thought about her singing. I CLEARLY said that she didn't blow me away, she sounded alright! How that got changed into she couldn't sing, I have no clue. I just love it when somebody ask you your opinion, you give it to them then they get mad and call u a hater because you didn't give them the answer they wanted to hear.
Oh one more thing....
NeNe get some selfesteem , only people with low self-esteem have to tear down others to climb up themselves.....pityful and learn to pronounce comfortable not conthabowl.
Hey nene people are in and out with u saying negative things about u. But if they were a true fan they wouldnt say those things about u. Ive been a fan from day 1 so i would never be like o i love kim or kandi. But u get what im saying. Anyway Kim was fake in season 1 and will always be and i think people forget that. So ttyl love u nene
you know we all love you. you remind me soooo much of myself. good hearted and honest. keep up the good work.
I am very upset with NENE because she starting to do alot of hating on Kandi and i really don't like that because i tink Kandi is a very sweet girl and she is not all that ghetto hoe NENE make it to be. I thing she needs to try and keep it real because she is being so fake.
My husband and I love to watch your show. You are something else. However, I don't know why you call Lisa or Kandhi "geto" just because of the place that they grew up. A lot of proper, ethical and professional people come from the place that you call "the geto". They have more class that rich people. You probably didn't live in the "geto" but you act like one. You have to pressume a lot to show something that you are not. Before you say something to the girls look at your self first. Do not label someone because of the place. Look at the hearth of the person.
Nene, stop the drama use you said U wanted to move on and yet U keep bad talking Kim and making her look bad it seems that U are making it hard to let go.
You and Kim need to mend your friendship and leave the drama to Sherre and Lisa. You and Kim were great friends and seem the happiest together. Its so immature of you to make fun of Kim. Even when you diss Kim she still wants to be your friend.
Leave the drama -lol
Nene... girl. I have always been a fan of yours. I have to say though my opinion of you is changing. I feel like you want so badly to be friends with Kim and its obvious that you have fun when your with her. You only seem to talk about her in a negative manner when you are around Sheree or Lisa. This is the definition in terms of the phrase "two-faced". I expected more from you... I am going to quote you when I say,"how small of you" Kandi's blog says it best... you are turning in to a walking contradiction. Clean it up girl. You can be friends with everyone you want to be friends with... have a back bone and form your own opinions. Stop going with the crowd. I wanna like you again. -JAkE
NeNe you are funny as ever I really enjoy the show. I am glad that you gave Kim another chance at friendship; but she needs to learn how to be a friend, she does like to keep up mess. I would keep her at arms length. Girl keep it up - you are open and honest that is the only way to be.
NeNe, girl, you got it going on. You really do. You have a beautiful family and a bright personality that makes you a star!!! You'll always be my favorite Atlanta Housewife, but there's something that I want to point out: It looks like its a popular thing to get together with someone you're having beef with and laying things out on the table. This is fine, really...but I don't understand how it could *ever* be a good idea in packs. All that will accomplish is yelling and fights! While I get the sneaky suspicion Kim's lied a lot--and while I think you had every right to be upset--you can't blame the girl for not wanting to be ganged up on. One-on-one is the best way to go--Lisa's convo with Kim was a good example (even though Kim didn't really listen). Then again, the show wouldn't be interesting without a little confrontation...
Hey NeNe I just love you...You are so fun & have such a great energy...I enjoy watching the housewives of ATL but look forward to the day you get your own show....
NENE I LOVE YOU BECOS U TELL IT THE WHERE IT IS WHICH IS VERY GOOD. AND I LOVE THE WAY U CARRY URSELF,I WANT TO BE ABLE TO CARRY MYSELF LIKE THAT. LEAVE THE OTHERS ALONE,THEY THOUT THEY ARE THE BEST BECOS THEY WEAR SIZE 2 OR 4?I DONT KNOW. YOU ARE THE BEST AND I WANT YOU TO ALWAYS SPEAK THE TRUTH.
NeNe, alter ego photo shoots have been popular for some time. My friends & I did them about 4 yrs ago. Also, Tyra Banks always features these shoots as part of the ANTM challenges which contributed to the rising popularity. So pull back your reigns, you are not the pacesetter for this style of photography. And before you start labeling Kandi as ghetto which I don't think she is, you need to take a good look in the mirror. You have to be born w/class. It's not for sale. Good luck!
Nene, I really don't think Sheree is worth your time girl. Remember your name was not on her birthday party list and when she was informed that you were outside she acted like a twit and didn't even come and get you. Kim did leave with you and I think she is definitely more sincere than Sheree. I laugh when she says at the opening of the show that people are jealous of her success. What success?? She married a football player and as for her success that is it. A designer??? hell no. A real designer can sketch, sew and really design clothes. Sheree is not very attractive and looks quite fat this season. Stick with Kim. Nene you are just amazing girl!
nena,ha girl i like u so much .first i would like to say you are funny as hell and keep real,nene you need your on show and when you get it ''please dont put candi or lisa they are boring as hell.i mean they are pretty girl but are not cut for it.so to u girl keep it hood and tell dawite i love him too.god bless you and your family. love nickki
Hi NeNe! I'm a big fan of the show but how could you say that you and Kim were not as close as the show portrayed you to be when it's you and Kim who are always saying how close the two of you were. You have frequently said that you and Kim "go way back" yet your previous relationship with her has not been defined (or maybe I missed that episode). Exactly how long have you known Kim and how did you meet? I hope the drama between the two of you is just for the sake of providing your fans entertainment or else it's a sad commentary that two grown women can't act a little more mature.
NeNe, You are funny but let me give you some advice- use your humor for good and not evil. You will be just as popular if you stop it with the nasty attitude. You guys gang up on Kim like a bunch of thugs. Do any of you think about what type of example you're setting for kids out there? Let alone your own! I'd be embarrassed to have my mother acting like that on tv. I know they're probably telling you to keep up the nastiness, but really? You'd sell your soul for 15 minutes of fame? Your husband seems like such a nice guy. I imagine he's horrified with your childish behavior.
You need to grow up and act like an adult and set a good example of how women can be friends and not back stab eachother.
Hello Nene, How are you? I think you are gorgeous!!!! You seemed to be sincere last season, but you metamorphose to a spiteful creature, what happened? Is it too much fame? Well, I think you focus on everybody else but yourself! what about spending valuable time with your beautiful family? Your motto is:" I like to keep it real" On the other hand, you talked rubbish about people that you call your friend, is it that hypocritical? If you don't want people to talk about you, please practice the habit of not talking about people first. God bless you!!!
You are the hit of the show in my eye. I love the way you poke fun at Kim, I would be doing the same as you. You keep me laughing that is for sure. I like you because you are real. You do not try to be someone you're not, like the other girls do. Keep smiling and keep up your funny pokes at phony Kim.
Well I can see this is not a "keeping it real" message board. It's only for people that have "nice" things to say about the cast. Or the cast is too insecure to have anything negative or constructive critisims posted about them. Which I guess is the reason 2 of my comments were not posted.
I was so very disappointed by your calling Kandi "ghetto." Actually, whenever Black women feel the need to put other Black women down, it is sad. So few of us get the opportunity to be on television like you and it is so very unfortunate when those who do have the platform you have been given, the first thing they do is use it to tear someone to shreds for all the world to see. Last year at the reunion show all of you claimed you had not given any thought to representing Black women or Black people in general. I hoped you had given some thought to that between seasons. Oh well. To be honest, I had never heard of Kandi (or any of you) until the show. But, as I recall, she was not among the group having a public fight at what appeared to be a very upscale Atlanta restuarant. That little ghetto fest included you, my dear. That fact, and lots of others, make you more "ghetto" than Kandi--who can indeed sing...but, I would never stoop so low as to call you, or any Black person ghetto...none of us is better than our sisters and brothers and it takes more than money to bring class
Nene, oh Nene!
I've been your fan since day 1. And I've became more than your average fan, because I do believe that you are a role model. You show your personality yet you keep everything classy and sophisticated. You show your true woman skills in how you keep your household together, including your children and marriage. You also show that you can have FUN and make a joke of life but also cherish the most important memories and forgive and forget the ones that need to be. You are truly a strong, beautiful, black woman and a role model as well :)
Hi nene i havent got your book yet, but i no its going to hot cuz everything u do is hot i just want u to no that im ur biiiiiiigest fan nene all my freinds say u just like nene i say i dont care she is the bomb,, i love u soooo much nene, i pray all the time i get to meet u one day cant wait god is going to make it happen i no people put up blogs about the show and all the drama but this is just about u keep up the good work
I don't know what the problem is with Kim talking about any of you. You all talk about each other so what is the big deal. You have talked about Sharee, Lisa, Kim and Kandi. Kim needs to wake up because the way I see it Kandi is the closest one to a friend. You NeNe are a trouble maker you start stuff and then you get everyone involved. Don't say you're not jealous because you are when Kandi and Kim were in they little clique your face stated it all you just want to have control.
nene, Whats up with that comment about living in the projects and being ghetto? what are u saying that people that dont live where u come from are ghetto?? U act and talk as if u are better then anyone u need to stop boo because u was an ex stripper who gave lap dances for dollare bills.
nee nee is the best one on the housewives i love this one''i wish they would come out with all of the dvd's they have the oc first one but thats it so bravo please start putting them on dvd!!!!!!!!! love you neenee
you are really nice i love you on the real housewives of atlanta you are really good it was funny when you were trying to break up kim and shara you had on really high hills and you could not really run and when you tryed to run you were like eww and when shara was trying to pull of kims wig i think she really was trying to pull it off but kim held it on i would have helped shara pull it off.
Ne Ne, you are still my favorite, and I certainly know when you say someone is "Hood or Ghetto," you do not mean it in an insulting way and that you are really insinuating that person is a strong black woman who is not taking any wooden nickels.
NeNE; You are funny to watch but I don't think you are friend material. Why is it last season you would not accept Kim and Sherre's friendship as well as being friends yourself? When Sherre saw your popularity on the show she reached out to you and discarded Kim. Duh!! You are a control friek just like Vickie from the OC. I'd love to see the two of you stuck together for a week, now that would be a show!!! Wake-up to Sherre's manipulation. Miki
Hi Nene! I just finished your book tonight, just bought it yesterday! Loved it!!! I will be passing it on to a friend tomorrow. You are by far my favorite character because you are so real & I love that about you. If there were more people in this world like you, it could really be a better place. Great job on the book, I would love a part II, but would suggest placing some pictures in the book so that readers will get a visual of what you are discussing. Can't wait for more great seasons to watch! Jacqueline
I saw a fun loving NeNe last season. I don't know what happened to her. Are the producers encouraging u to stir things up? It's a business so I wouldn't be surprised. I am really confused with what u are saying about Kandi. Of course I am not there so only u know if she is giving u crossed looks. But I just came from her blog and she didn't say one bad thing about ANYONE. Even on the show I haven't heard her say one bad thing. So u are really making yourself look bad with the negative comments towards Kandi.
NeNe I am not so sure about your level of feeling secure about yourself. There was a clear undertone of negativity when u spoke about Lisa's parents. Almost like u were laughing at them. That wasn't cool at all.
Why did u put Kim on speaker phone with Lisa but didn't inform Kim that Lisa was listening to the conversation? That wasn't cool either.
Your alter ego shoot.........I guess u want to send the statement that u are not trying to hide your past..........we get it. I love your new look and clothes. I always thought u had a beautiful figure but that pole thing was ghetto.
You're just really coming across as negative this season and I think (could be wrong) that ppl liked u b/c you were real. Being negative isn't really being real. It's a sign of insecurity.
You are not the nice person you were last year. Fame seems to have gone to your head. Its a shame to see. Get your morals and priorities back!!
Why don't you write your blogs weekly after the show? Is Kim the only one that really cares about the show and fans? It seem as though the you'll respond to blogs that Kim writes.
NeNe, I hope that this season is an "editing" problem. I suggest you take that story & stick to it.It seems that every week I tune in you are being portrayed as loud, jealous, mean spirited, & diva-ish you are not the same NeNe I wanted to blast Sheree for(party list) in last season. I know you're trying to come back strong, but please slow down! I'm sure Anderson Cooper might have a job for you.
TO POSTER MIRENDA 8/28 @ 4:11: I think u did a better job with expressing what I was trying to say. NeNe may not be too receptive to my post. But I hope she is open to what you said. I really felt the love in your message. I've read so many comments and is surprised so many ppl seem to love the new NeNe. But I agree with u, she's not the same NeNe I fell in love with either.
Ne-Ne, I loved your part in the alter-ego shoot (as far as your actual egos go). Nevertheless, Kandi has a beautiful voice and I really feel that it was fowl for you to say that she was alright -- although you are entitled to your opinion. And I am going to leave this comment where it is because I can go on and on about how I feel about you in the show.
NENE I LOVED YOUR ALTER EGO! I THINK ALL OF YOU DID A GOOD JOB WITH THE CHARACTERS. I'M WITH YOU ON THE CANDI THING. SHE SOUNDS ALRIGHT BUT I'VE HEARD BETTER. I HEARD SOMEONE SAY SHE WAS THE BEST SINGER IN XSCAPE, SO NOT TRUE, KEISHA WAS THE BEST IN THE GROUP. ANYWAY, YOU GO GURL!! LOVE YA!
Hey Nene, please when you get a chance blame this season on the "editing" cuz I think Bravo is protraying you just a little too much over the top. Your brashness, and in-sincerity is coming through on the big screen......take a time out, re-group my sister dont worry there will be another season!
I personally think that NeNe is jealous. Kandi can blow in ways NeNe wish she could. It's a shame that as black women instead of uplifting each other, we hate on each other. When someone say negative things, they are only speaking of themselves. I feel like Nene is insecure and loves to be center of attention, if someone else out shines her she speaks negatively about them. Well it's not hard to out shine someone like NeNe. I am a huge fan of Kandi.
Nene, you are one of my favorites from the show...but I must say that sometimes it seems that you do hate on Kandi just a little bit. It may well be the editing that makes it seem this way, but I have to admit that when you called Kandi "ghetto & hood" I was suprised because I have never seen her act either way and if I had to say who is more ghetto...I would have to say you...but this is what everyone loves about you.
I have been following this show since the first season and it appears everything is more "staged" now. Nene, you by far are my favorite housewife. However, you come across a little more "catty" this season than "real". It amazes me how in this season everyone has so much going on as far as career wise (books, fashion lines, music, wigs (?) etc.) but the main focus of every episode is "who said what about who". Make your money, enjoy your life, and don't dwell in the drama/foolishness :).
In my opinion NeNe was hating on Kandi when she tried to say Kandi's singing wasn't all that. I think Kandi can really sing and NeNe was just upset because she has no real talent. Basically all she does is chase down rumors and GOSSIP!!! If her family was not evicted and experiencing financial difficulties, then why worry about people saying that. As her husband stated....LET IT GO!! But, of course, they need that in the show for drama so we will continue to watch.
yo nene love u so much loved the book keep doin u and leave these bitches alone worry about ur family u r so much better than this show. How is deshawn.
Nene, I get that you are tripping over the Bravo created ego that has been growing episode by episode but I can honestly say, you need to take it down a notch. I'm not even a fan of Kim's but if you came to my home and mocked me to a point where the room is silent, it's time for you to check yourself in the mirror. You can always fall back on "I just tell it like it is" but at the same time, I don't see you bashing yourself. I know you consider yourself "outspoken". I'd go head to head with you in that respect any day of the week in that respect (or lack there of). The difference is, you're really starting to behave in ways that I would find offensive (and that is saying something). You're always going to be NeNe but do you really want to people to see you as the woman who can hurt and offend people by using the "I just tell it like it is" approach? Whatever. Maybe you do. Take the crown off babe before it turns from diamonds into thorns. It's becoming painfully obvious and ridiculously irritating that your "celebrity" is based on... what exactly? It sure isn't talent. I'd say humor but you're wearing that one gift out.
Hello Mrs NENE.. I would like to say that I really do enjoy the show and you are one of my fav housewives but I sometimes wonder if what you portray on t.v. and who you really are is lost? You have a great love for your family and true friends but, at the end of the day all which you speak of is not alwyas positive. I have many difficult things I have to deal with everyday and many people who hate on me and put me down but, my thing is this... at the end of the night when I lay my head down would GOD approve of all I have said and done today? Think about it?
