NeNe Leakes

NeNe talks about her confrontation with Kim, Dwight's wild party, and her book release!

on Aug 17, 20090

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!

Perhaps writing about a troubled past is cathartic to the one who writes it. Perhaps the greatest value is not how much can be gained from the sale of the taudry tale, but from the healing that takes place for the one who confronts their past. From Video Vixen to Going Rogue -- there seems to be a market for all genres. Living in the U.S. gives everyone an opportunity to reach for that brass ring. You too Nene.

NeNe, without you there would be no Atlanta housewives. The ther wives are boring and they do not know how to keep it real. They need to kick Kim off and replace her with someone who is not so stupid

NeNe... i love you! hahaha. you are by far the housewife that inspires me the most in my life. everything you do seems like you are trying to help other people and that is what i love about you. Your foundation for women against domestic violence is amazing. i have been in abusive relationships and too have learned how to move on from that and be in an amazing relationship. i pray that someday i can do something for people that will benefit them the way you do. thank you for being such a true inspiration for me to look up too. dont ever let anyone bring you down girl.

NeNe, I saw you in a different light during last episode. I used to like you until then. The argument with Kandi was ridiculous. I didn't understand why you got angry during your conversation with her..all of a sudden you two were talking and then you started yelling. You told Kandi that you don't talk about her because you "don't know her, you don't know her friends, her family"....but yet you talked about her in an earlier episode..you said she was ghetto. I think you are so full of yourself. You are NOT HOT!!!!

NENE LEAKES SHOULD HAVE HER OWN SHOW - DETROIT FANS EXCLAIM! You're our absolute favorite! In fact, we just started watching the show - all because of you. You are a beautiful, strong woman. You have style and class. You have a loving and kind demeanor. You show respect for your husband and son. You don't use inappropriate language - which is why I allow my young daughter to watch with me. You will get your own show - and we will definitely watch it! We love you here in Detroit!

Ne,Ne.. Eventhough Kim may lies, I really do think that she was telling the truth about the situation with the comment made on your husband. To me Sheree has not been all that of a friend to you since last season. This season she hasn't been saying anything about you cause you may have helped her, but you really need to look into that cause Sheree got very defensive. So to me that was funny. Just give Kim a chance and stop blasting her from time to time.

I like Kandi, even though she does not want to be associated with Xscape anymore, that was my favorite group, you girlies can sing! Too bad. But Kandi you are a classy lady, stay as you are and ignore NeNe, To me she shows her ghettoness each show and she talks too damn much, she should be more ladylike. My opinion. I pray for your family members that had the car accident Kandi

Nene, You are also my favorite housewife. I enjoy your fun and relationships with your friends and even those that would only be considered acquaintance. I hope that, you and Lisa (my next favorite housewife) relationship stays strong. I also hope that you and Kim continue to have fun together. (I truly am not certain that she is truly the bad guy in all of the gossip biz... You know alcohol junk and so does Sheree) Hey, the best with your book! God's blessing and favor for you and the family.

This show has really changed this season. This season seems to be focused solely around gossip. Last season showed women who lived well with morals and good character. They made efforts to help their communities, families and enhance themselves. It was interesting and different from the usual. I wonder what happened?????? There are more bleeps, yelling and displays of aggressive behavior in one show than I can stand! What happened to having class?

NeNe I like you. But sometimes you sound jealous of the other housewives. I think Kandi sings great. I think Kim is Kim. Sheree is Sheree. Everyone talks about each other, but you seem to do most of the talking. But I still like your personality. You just have one of those great personality, no one could ever not like you.

I love watching the show for the fashions and honestly the drama. I own a boutique in Atlanta called Couture Inspirations in Kirkwood Station and have the cutest items. Nene you are truly invited to come for a private afternoon of shopping. Keep it going and I hope you continue with your domestic abuse organization. I told everyone that was the most moving episode. Many Blessings.

Nene you are really showing a different side of yourself. When is your birthday? You are really showing a great deal of jealousy towards the new housewife. Whats up with that?

NeNe I love u and I just want 2 say, that I think you all should stop focusing on Kim and look at Sheree! I think she got alot of mess with her, and that she is the one lying. One person can't have a conversation alone, it takes two and I believe Sheree gave as good as she got during her and Kim's conversation!! When someone is telling the truth they do not keep trying to explain themselves and get so heated that they allow someone to taken them out of their element!!! Sharee is full of BULL!!! She had to act that way to try and cover up what she said!! Also now her and Lisa may fall out cause I feel the heat beening turned up whenever someone meantions a fashion or clothing line!!!!!!

NeNe, I just want to comment on the new housewife in the circle. Does she have to make every conversation about he and then end it with crying. She has cried every episode, every one. The fight at the restaraunt, she turned it around into the fight with her mom. Her and Kim talking about how she doesn't like drama, she turned it into the drama she has about her engagement. She is a mess, I remember Escape and she is not memorable.I say bring back Dershawn, I liked her.

I love, love, love Dwight. He is my idea of a "GRAND DAME" He is so cute and I love the way he dresses. He is flambouyant but with TASTE. I know he is gay but I would take him anyway, just kidding. I would be so honored to hang out with Dwight but I know he has his own crowd and as Nee Nee said, I wouldn't fit into their circle. Well thats okay. I think Dwight should have a show. I would watch and I know millions of other's would too. YOU GO DWIGHT!!!

NeNe your book is wonderful. I read it in 2 days! I loved it ! I think you are doing a great job with your weight and exercise! I also think that Sheeree and Kim both deserve each other. What I can see for sure Sheeree does not want you to have any success, friend, fabulous clother, money or a great husband! But thank God you do have all of that and more class in your pinky than she has in the foney smile. Stay positive and keep it moving. Do let people cause you to forget were you came from, what you have with your husband who is a real man Greg, and your childern who love you regardless. Just say get behind me devil and keep it moving! My sister favor saying is ( God Get That for Me Please) referring to the haters and the evil thing people do. Much Love! Jacci

NeNe I love your hair! I saw the episode with you & Lisa & like I've said before, LOVE YOUR ENERGY! You just seem to enjoy & love life and invite others to do the same. Like the other viewer, I too hope you & Lisa remain friends. There's some good positive energy coming from that friendship. How's DeShawn? Do you all have any contact with her since last season?

Dear NeNe, I was pretty disappointed in your behavior with your "friend" Kim. I know that you two have had some ups and downs but you were trying to correct them and you called it an intervention of sorts. Just because it wasn't going the way you wanted, doesn't give you the RIGHT to force it upon her. I am NOT a fan of Kim's, let me get that straight! But, I want you to remember your days of being in the relationship of the domestic violence. I am sure when confronted in, what you preceived as a violent situation, all you wanted to do was to be OUT OF IT...period. Kim, I am sure, was feeling very threatened by you and Sheree, especially after Sheree put her hands on her and started to tug on her hair/wig whatever. At that point, all Kim wanted to do was to get the hell out of there. I was so disappointed in you because it shows on the camera you pulling on her arm many many times not allowing her to leave. WHY! I heard you say, I want to clear this up. Well, it wasn't going to get cleared up that night, not after what Sheree did and you pulling on her arm. She must have felt very threatened by it all. I felt very bad for Kim that night. She was ganged up on by the two of you. And then to hear Sheree say, "what is wrong with her?" No, what is wrong with the two of you?!!! You weren't thinking, especially of what your book is about ...that is for sure! People do not put others in a situation like that and not see them for who they are...another human being! Not at our age! Hope this maybe gives you food for thought. It's not just about you getting your answers. It's not just about you. We are all on this planet. Sometimes things just don't go our way...it doesn't mean we can act a certain way to get our way....dig?

I think that TWIGGY saw last seasons episodes and put up a defense trying to show her tail! I think that she might of gotten a bit scared and didn't know how to act right. A woman who knows herself and is self assured dosen't have to give her status the way she did...im this old and don't look it, and blah blah blah. She embarrased herself! LOL!!!

Nene,

It would be nice if you find the time to update your blog.

Calm down a bit. You are really going a little over the top and it does not look nice.

It was humbling to see you go home with Lisa, she needed a friend!

Nene, let's get to the point. Why are you jealous of Kandi? If you are not aware of this, watch your own reactions on camera. You are contradiction queen. Stop talking about other people. Stop trying to be highest rated on TV, you guys are already on the public eye. Do not Lohan yourself!

Nene, I'm so disappointed. I thought you were the realest one. Starting to wonder. Kandi can sing and you know it. Not like you were paying her to perform. Do any of you beautiful blessed women know Jesus? None of you are letting your lights shine. Shame on ya. Been waiting 2 seasons for somebody to Praise God, Thank Him or even ackowledge Him. Comeback Nene and watch His blessings flow. If your real estate husband wasn't broke last year you really should be thanking Him!!!!! Get right sista while you still have a chance. God first, eyes poppin 200th.

Kim seemed jealous of you and Lisa's trip and was talking a lot of smack to Kandi about you and especially Lisa. I don't think she can ever be a real friend to you. Is she and Kandi the new "twins"?
