Wow! This has been a busy week for me. Yes, I am author NeNe Leakes! I released my memoir Never Make the Same Mistake Twice across the country earlier this week.
The ladies and I met at FAB to discuss issues we've been having with each other and to try to get ourselves in a better place. One of the issues that came up was that Kim had said my husband was BROKE! Funny coming from somebody who doesn't have a job! But if I laid on my back all day, I would be rich too! Let's be very clear, Kim knows none of my husband's personal business or mine.
FYI: If my husband loses everything today, I will personally take care of him because he has provided for our family and me for years!
Sheree's house: The TWIG of a friend Sheree had over was rude and out of line! We were having a good time and I was simply trying to pay her a compliment. I decided that it was Sheree's home so I would just keep the peace and not let Miss 'I Need A Sandwich' get the fame she was searching for.
Dwight's party was fun and different from any other party I've ever been to. We had a ball that night and I must say, Dwight looks damn good for his age!
I love my fans!
I love the show! And wish you luck with your book. Who cares if you buy or rent. I think her and Sheree were both being fake. And why is Sherre pronounced Charay? I'm black too and we all know that her name is supposed to be pronounced like Sherry, it's funny to watch her frontin...' did she really have NO idea the house note isn't being made? And I'm with you he ain't broke! He did what men will do to hold on to thier money! She comes off put together but that's surface she's a mess! Starting with the fake name change!lol
Nene reminds me of my 'mentor' mom. She is the sweetest thing but does not pull any punches. Nene, I just want to request that you continue to keep it real. You have always done a great job of that so I am able to back my honey off of me when he starts talking.
The last episode though, I was like uh oh. Yall ganged up on Kim (the issue was resolved with your one on one but you allowed someone to come back fill you with more drama then went off on her at the 3 person meeting). I understand wanting to get to the bottom of things but you should have waited confronting her again. The part that my honey flipped out on is that you didn't stick up for Kim after you invited her into that situation. I personally didn't care but I could see it from that standpoint.
Now back to keeping it real. You went off on Kim for talking about your business and you did the same thing right after with Lisa. You told all of Sheree's business. All of it. It was funny the way you did it BUT I wouldn't have expected that from you. Only because you went off on Kim for discussing your business. It made you look hypocritical. I know the celebrity makes things a little different in how you do things (it's only natural) but don't lose you. You have always left direct lines that if someone were to trace back connected. This new season the lines are starting to get a little blurry. It seems like the lines may not be traceable to the beginning and match.
And I can understand why you didn't check that girl, Tania, immediately. That would have been a fight. You had to digest that before speaking. That was the best politically correct fight ever. Lisa had your back! She been playing that game for a while and was Johnny on the Spot. Yall did that as best you could. Much luv!
WELL I ALWAIS THINK YOUR THE BIGGER PERSON AND IM A FAN OF YOURS AND I THINK YOUR THE BEST WOMEN IN THAT SHOW AND REALIEST.
Nene You crack me up!!! I tune in each week to see what U are gonna say next to who. I really like that Lisa is ur new sidekick!
I thought Tonya was TOTALLy out of line. Yall are much better than me because She wouldve got the business. She just strated attacking you ans Lisa! I was truly shocked at her behavior!
I just wanted to say congrats on your book. I just walked out of Barnes and Noble with my copy and I can't wait to dig in. I truly adore and appreciate your spirit. You do and say the things out loud that oftentimes I only think about doing and saying on the inside, but I'm learning to BE FREE, CHILD! (I can just picture and hear you saying it that way!
I thought Sheree's girl was out of order too. I'm 6'0' tall and wear a size 12 proudly and I have been a fitness instructor and avid runner for years (after shedding nearly 100 pounds) and I still to this day get skinny biatches trying to test me even after I came in ahead of them in a 5k, 10K or 15K race or outdid them the gym! Like my mom says, "They hate me cuz they ain't me!". I'm glad you and Lisa didn't make a big issue out of it but you were right - girlfriend does need a sandwich!
Well, I just wanted to give you a shout out and say congrats on your book, I can't wait to read it, and keep doing what you do because you do it so well!
Peace and God Bless!
Hey NENE how is the book sales going? You are my favorite on the show. I did want to tell you that I don't know what goes on behind the scenes, but I think that you and Kim were really friends. It seems that Sheree got in between the two of you. Its so sad. Kim probably said things out of anger but I really think that she truly cared for you. It was evident in the first season that Sheree didn't. So watch her closely. I think that shes jealous of Kim. Kim should close her legs to married men but thats something she has to deal with. Friends don't judge one another. They just pick up the pieces when everything falls apart.
NeNe I love your character on the show but I am also a little confused about your issues with others. First of all on season one you bad mouthed YOUR FRIEND about her singing. No matter if YOU felt like it was innocent fun or not it was still done and hurt Kim's feelings. So what if she did say something about you and your husband, maybe she meant it innocently as well. As for Tonia someone else that you INNOCENTLY upset. Maybe she felt that your compliment was a backhanded one and felt she was attacked. Again because in YOUR head it was inncent no one should be offended, that is of course unless you are NeNe Leakes then watch your mouth. Seems that you can dish alot out but can't take anything back. Also you seem to be as two face as everyone else. But again you keep the show funny so keep up the good work!!!LOL
NeNe is the best part of the show - love her! She brings humor and honesty to the situations and I think she's GREAT!
First off I luv the show! I will say this tho, I saw the aftershow online and I saw when Kim called in. I used to be such a fan Nene but honestly after watching that show I truely feel sorry for you. Don't get me wrong, I don't agree with Kim being with a married man but she's grown and it's none of your business. For you to keep reminding everyone of that just to sell your book is wrong. I used to think you guys should just kiss and make up but now I don't think Kim should even give you the time of day. You and all the other girls talk about her being two-faced and talking about everyone behind their backs but you ALL do the same about her and each other. All in all the show is entertaining but I suggest you all learn from Kandi and grow up and be real women.
Either you or Lisa or both of you should have checked Tania. It is understandable why you didn't. You were respecting Sheree's home. When I was watching the episode, I was just like you when you were talking to the camera. I was saying in my head, "Did she just..., no she didn't... maybe I understood incorrectly..., that b8tch did not just..." All those thoughts ran through my head simultaneously in the span of about three seconds and my response would have been so passive aggressive like Lisa's when Tania made the remark about the swimmer's hair after I complimented her. I would have thought "This woman cannot be standing here with less than an inch of hair on her head, putting me down about my hair." From that moment on, it would not have been pretty. The best thing you and Lisa could do was go out and come back in and start fresh.
Kudos to you and Lisa for doing the mature thing instead of what you felt like doing.
HEY GIRL,I am not sure all what else happen with you and Kim but I really like you two, and wish it wasn’t like that with you both, but things happen and life goes on. I am not a Sheree fan just because she talks too much about money and class, if Sheree had class she wouldn’t talk about how much money she is to get. But since you and Sheree are trying to be friends, again I hope that you and Kim could too. But again, the stuff I heard this morning on the radio I am not sure. Hope your book does well, and stay happy, live life, and keep telling it like it is.
NeNe NeNe NeNe... I believe that Sheree has said more about you and Gregg than anyone else on the show. She is so quick to try to make Kim look like the Guilty one but I wouldn't go off of her words alone. Remember how she did you at her Party..That was Jacked up..I don't think I could have forgiven that. But moving on..When people are talking about you and lying about you..to try to rehash or pinpoint who said what is impossible. I would just leave that high school stuff alone. If you were able to forgive Sheree then you should just forgive Kim as well. Lisa isn't the Angel you think she is either..cause if it wasn't for her telling about the song in the limo..None of the drama would have even happened. Rememeber that! She wants to come across all innocent but..I aint buying it and don't you either. I am loving the show and enjoying you again this season!
Love the New House and Hair.
Your biggest fan in Nebraska! Kandy
NeNe you are by far my favorite, other than Dwight you two together rock my world. I think you are the most real Housewife out there. You own up to everything you say unlike the rest of them and your family is so important to you. And I really respect you for your charity work also. It takes a big heart to do teh things you do. I think you handles the confrontationwith Kim with class, and Sheree and Kim need to both stop their lies.
Hey girl you are the best one on the show!!! Honestly without you the show would be CRAP>>> I do feel sorry for you for the simple fact besides Kim & Kandi you have TWO HATERS AROUND YOU....Keep doing you and never stop keepin' it real girl!!!!
Love, love, love you! You are the REAL thing. Will you be doing any book signings outside of Atlanta...you are so loved in Dallas. We would love to see you. That little skinny girl was so rude, is Sheree trying to get her on the show. Lord, I hope not. Dwight is a class act! He showed Andy cohen he was not going to be in the middle of a fight.
I haven't seen alot of the show, but the shows I have seen you are always misunderstood. I think you are a wonderful person and have a very very very outgoin personalitly. You have an awesome family that love you. NeNe don't worry about what any one says about you. I would love to hang out with you one week end. You remind me of myself. I too have alot of "HATERS"

Hey NeNe, I'm interested in infromation about your book? Are you going to travel and have a book tour? and also was it hard to find a literary agent and publishing company for this porject? Congratulations.
Also Kim is a ok person but she has a lot of issues that make her a very unstable friend. You should really keep your distance. Her problems are rooted a little deeper than is seen. You are doing a great job on the show, but just chill on trying to be friends with Kim at this time. It's just too much going on.
I don't know if this will be read by the appropriate parties, understood, nor addressed. I found the whole Kim-tervention sad and it broke my heart. I literally cried. I was expecting 3 mature adult women to get together and discuss their issues. Many female friendship have gone awry over misunderstandings. I was hoping that this meeting would resolve the issues and show other women how to do it properly. And it ended with a cat fight on the streets of Atlanta. No amount of entertainment nor money is worth losing your dignity and integrity. Is this how we are training our daughters and nieces to behave and resolve conflict? And I will not comment on the American stereotype of Black women. At what point to do we stop the madness? Give Dwight his own show. I want to see life lived to the fullest DRAMA FREE. Now that is living! I will keep watching and praying for a miracle.
Ne-Ne!! you are the stuff girl!! you are so much fun. i live in chicago and heard the 911 call (on the radio) from kim sayin you choked her up. you were gonna be on the show Thurs. and i missed it!! Dmn!! anyway, after seeing you and kin have so much fun when you were at the restaraunt alone, i wish that you guys would make up. when you add other women to the group esp someone like sheree, there's gonna be b.s. in the mix. i've noticed that who ever sheree's around--the conversation that took place always gets out leading to she-say. it happened first season with lisa about that song, etc sheree is just like her bitchy friend honey, birds of a feather flock together. you and kim seem like sister's and i hope you hug and make up. i also hope that i still think this way after this weeks episode, lol. have you ever had a banana martini?? they are so gooooood!! love ya!
Come on now NeNe..you and Kim love one another and even through this mess she has said she would be there for you..let it go and get your friendship with Kim back..we love you 2 together...youre great fun!!!
NeNe ~ I am so happy for you and your family! Go head on Girl and be all that God has intended for you to be. When the ads started coming on for season 1 ~ I was telling my Honey ~ we gon have to check this out. Well, Mr. "I don't like reality tv" turned up his nose and said "I am not watching that mess ~ I'm gon let you handle that" Since Season 1 Episode 1 ~ guess who beats me home to watch the Housewives ~ except at our house it is called "NeNe and nem" We just love you here in the midwest ~ girl Be Blessed!
Nene, my husband really doesn't like the show but I watch it so he has to. He LOVES you and so does my 4 year old daughter, LOL. She was actually the one who got me watching the show, I kept hearing your name in my house. In regards to the last show, I've been thin my whole life and I think she got really offended when you said that she needed a sandwich. There was NO reason for her to go after Lisa with the swimmer (push you in the pool) thing. I would have pushed twiggy into the pool myself. Kim, on the other hand, is a mess. I think everyone should stay away from people like that.
NeNe I still think Kim would have been a better friend than Sheree, she just want to use you and get her she by Sheree out there I think she is the one that was talking about Gregg was broke it sounds like something she would say and she dogged you last season she and Kim both and this season she is talking about Kim I can't see that friendship with Sheree she and Kim was all over each other oh you are so pretty no you are so pretty, NeNe doesn't have good fashion like you and I She dogged you NeNe from looking at the show I don't believe you and Sheree or Kim are still friends NeNe you makes the show if you weren't on it I wouldn't watch it they can call you ghetto whatever the like I don't care I like you and Lisa
You are the sweetest thing ever, but I am telling you...stay away from Sheree, she is the one who lies, not Kim...Kim loves you and it shows, the only thing Sheree loves is herself and her inflated idea of her worth.
ok, loved dwight's party..it was just as fab as he is.. lol
nene, i think sheree is lying, im sure when she was "mad" at you she said some mean stuff to kim when they were buddies.. sheree should just admit her part in it and be done with it.. either you and kim are going to be friends and cordial or not.. no big deal.. we know most of this stuff is for the camera's any way and none of yall are bff's.. lol
as for tania, she was out of line and was just trying to get her 15 mins of fame.. lol everybody wants some of the RHOA shine, she is no different.. lol
Hi NeNe. I hate that things did not work out with you and Kim. She is the only one that stood by you(As far as I saw.ref Sherree's party and leaving with you). Lisa told what happened in the car...and that started the downward spiral of you and Kim's friendship. Sheree even admitted to it on her blog that Lisa told Kim about it on speakerphone (as Kim had stated in the reunion). When Sheree, Lisa and Kim were talking about how you looked, Lisa was laughing. She put her head under that table cloth. I believe Kim. Sheree is a liar and you can see that.. As for Sheree's friend..I am with you. She is trying for the fame. Do you think that she thought by acting that way she may be invited to be a housewife? I think that is what she is trying for.
Oh by the way..the only friend you have on that show is Greg and your kids.
NE-NE, Let me first say I love the show, and I love you. I got your book, sorry I missed you at Stonecrest on Friday. :( Please do another signing........
I have been online watching the snippets, and I have feel in love with you and Greg even more. I love how he teaches your boys how to men thru the lil things. He's so sweet and I know your beautiful sons will grow up to be just like that....maybe he can teach a class for some of our brothers! :)
Congratulations on your book, and the new leaf you've turned over. You've always been real, and you are still doing the thang!
NeNe!!!!!!!!!!!! My girrrrrL. You are pretty much THA BOMB and thats all that matters, ha! You are as real as they come, and I love it more than chapstick. Keep on keepin on pretty lady!!!!!!!!!!! ADIOS
NeNe- It makes me so sad to see you treat Kim the way you do. She has been a good friend to you and you have said just as many, if not more mean things about her as she has you. Sheree is nothing but a trouble maker and she is trying to take the light off herself and put it on Kim. Read her blog for crying out loud, she says that Lisa and Ed's love is staged? Please count the times Kim has been there for you, and the times Sheree has not...
NeNe, I think you really hit a gold mine with your husband! I'm not talking about his net worth, but his heart. He is a very kind person, from what they show on t.v. As long as you both know what you have, it shouldn't matter what someone, who may be jealous of your relationship had to say. Even though it pissed you off, take the high road. You have a beautiful home, family, etc. But I gotta say, I almost choked when I saw the trashbox video! I was crying laughing! You are too funny!!
nene you are without a doubt my favorite house wife! lol but on the thing abou kim not having a job, i was wondering where does she get all this money from? clearly big papp aint around anymore lol.
I just wanted to say that I dont think you shoulve gotten mad at Sherees friend because I think you offended her first by saying let me give you a sandwich. I am a skinny girl myself, and I have never been able to gain weight no matter how much I eat, and for some reason bigger girls think its okay to say things to skinny girls, like "You need to eat some more" or "Here let me give you a piece of sandwich because you are too skinny", but if we were to turn around and say something like "And you need to stop eating so much" bigger people would get offended just like you when Sherees friend told you something about your size.
nene, you are my girl and i cant stop loving you on this show all i want to say in watch out for Sheree i still dont trust that girl.... it think kim is right when she called her and opportunist...ANYWAY keep doing you Nene and keep been real
Kim and you were my favorite "Housewives" last season. However, all of that has changed this season; your intervention with Kim was disgraceful. I hope that Kim does not repair her "friendship" with you. Her daughters and she are much better off with you gone from their lives.
NeNe, I like you and it sad to see the demise of you and Kim's friendship but let's be real and keep things in perspective. You wanted to get things in the open about who said what, right? Let's not forget that you were the one who started all of this mess by singing a mean song about your so-called friend in the Limo last season. Which was by all means "talking behind her back", the very thing that you "can't stand"! So come on, having a meeting like that was useless and it was childish. You are no saint when it comes to talking about people so don't act like you are always pull a knife out your back. You were mad at Kim because she formed a friendship with Sheeree whether you admit it or not and that's why you turned on her and still act bitter towards her. She did nothing to warrant that behavior from you. No one turned on you, so get that straight. Sheeree never liked you and still don't
Ne Ne, I love you, you are so full of life. But leave Sheree alone, Kim and keep Lisa in your pocket for business reason. All of them are fake, but you can truly lose the friendship with Sheree and Kim, they cant do nothin for you. They are not worht it. And yes.... Tania gave you way to much at Sheree's house. But that goes to show you that Sheree was talkin bout you behind your back, it seemed as if Tania skinny baldhead vains in her neck butt, already had it out for you and was ready for a confrontation. Tania should not be mad at you about her size, she just needs to eat LMBO and I think she and Sheree are Lesbo's
Anyway Ne Ne your the best the show would be nothing wihtout you. I love Greg he is so mature, so laid back.

She did nothing to warrant that behavior from you. No one turned on you, so get that straight. Sheeree never liked you and still don't. You lost a great friend in Kim and whether someone told her about the song or not, she would have saw you singing for herself eventually and I’m sure things would have still turned sour between yall because of that.
...NeNe...i think you are soooooo cool,i really like your style...can you give a Sista' some help/pointers. i'm a Blessed 48yrs old w/a 4yr old soon to be 5 09/05/04...i wish i could meet you...nothing funny,just Sista' to Sista'...i enjoy watching the show...& keep it coming....Jade from Lebanon...
Love you NeNe!! Keep your head up girl!! You are doing big things, don't look back! Don't trust any of those hefers but Lisa (with caution) and DeShawn!! Peace!!
Congratulations on your book and I wish you lots of success!! The skinny girl at Sheree's party was a mess...I think she has a skinny womens complex (if there is such a thing)! Im glad your getting along with everyone but Im not quite sure what is going to become of you and Kandi because it seems like there is something in the air between you too...I cant say yet I just have to keep watching. Seems like everyone has something to say about everybody elses finances...find something else to gossip about Im sure there are a million things that they can talk about!! Well Nene, your great, goodluck and I'll be watching!!
girl I just love the mess out of you. I will be purchasing your book. Please beware of Sheree, that is the one who needs to come clean. Please view that clip again and watch how she flipped the script and tried to make Kim the focus.
Kim is not right about alot she did, but at least she did admit to the things she said about you, Sheree needs to be an adult and come clean.
Nene, I think you are sincere in wanting to repair your friendship with Kim, and I think you should. You two are great together and I can tell you both miss each other friendship. I would suggest that you work on mending fences with Kim and leave the other” ladies” (and I use that term loosely) especially Sheree out of it. Just watch your back with Sheree and keep in mind she does not seem to have any real friends. Think about how she was loud talking Kim and would not let her speak, because she knew she would be exposed for being a liar and a hater. Just remember what your grandmother used to tell you “if a dog will bring a bone to you she will carry it back as well”. Just watch your back with Sheree she is a hateful and jealous person. Good Luck, Mz. Peele
Nene, I like you and think you are down to earth. However, why would you trust Sheree now? Last year you two couldn't stand each other and for good reason. Sheree is manipulating YOU now. You said 'she is not a good person'. I would be pleasant to her but she would never by my friend. Wake up!
love you, Lisa & Kim and this is my favorite show! You ladies keep me laughing! I even got my fiance (who only likes to watch sports on tv) watching yall. Please mend it with Kim and check Sheree as often as you can. She is like school in the summer time "NO CLASS"...
Hi Nene, Congratulations on your book. I hope it's a success. I'm enjoying the new season although I didn't get that incident with Sheree's friend. First, why would she get upset with you for implying she was skinny, most women find it a compliment. Maybe she didn't get it because she was heavier than you thought? She didn't look skinny on TV, just average. I can't believe she grabbed Lisa's hair! She was obviously bitter and jealous because girlfriend's hair was fried from relaxers while Lisa's hair is healthy and beautiful. And that swimmer's hair comment? She tried to insult Lisa but she couldn't so she reached for "swimmer's hair". If you ever see her again, tell her swimmer's hair is caused by discoloration from chlorine, usually it's blond hair that turns yellowish and dries out. That's swimmer's hair. Lisa's hair is just naturally curly, and can blow straight which girlfriend just couldn't stand. How funny, swimmer's hair. LMAO! Good for you and Lisa for ignoring that average sized over processed hair girl. Sheree needs to find better friends.Love ya!
