Dwight Eubanks

Dwight gives us his side of the $10,000 argument.

on Oct 18, 20100

I think it is embarrassing for adults to behave like children! It's ignorant and very unfortunate. First of all Gregg came to me and asked me to lend him some money, $10,000, as a favor. I admittedly only had $500 to spare, and that's what I lent him. Nene is married to Gregg, so Gregg needed to tell Nene that he borrowed money from me. If he could not tell her about the loan, then that speaks volumes about their marriage. And besides, it was a gentleman's agreement. He asked that I not mention it to Nene, and in respect to what he was trying to do for his family, I honored his wish.

The bottom line is, if Nene needed to be in anyone's face, she needed to be in her husband's face ... period! Now let's get to my big picture. Gregg never paid me back in the time frame that he promised, and I made no fuss to Gregg about it. 

A few epiphanies here: How can you trust the word of Kim, the very person you argued with for being a liar. Kim twisted the truth. I did tell Kim that Greg asked me for a $10,000 loan. I never said I lent him $10,000! Hell, I was struggling like everybody else in this bad economy! And you know what the truth is, if I had $10,000, I would have lent it to the Gregg. By the way it is quite telling that Kim repeated what I (supposedly) had to say, but never told Nene what she had to say! Nene should read her own book where she decries domestic violence! Violence is violence sweetie. We must set the example for our fans, friends, family and particularly our children.

Now, I'm through ... and Kim should just come clean about everything she had to say about Nene, Gregg, and Sheree.

Dwight!

What should Dwight have done? He is friends with NeNe and her husband. I dont think he was wrong for lending Greg the money. What was he suppose to do? Just let the family struggle. What he did wrong was talked about it to Kim. He must have drank to many Mimosa's that night to do such a thing. But it is what it is and everything is all said and done. I'm pretty sure he has learned a very valuable lesson. Dont tell Kim NOTHING! Hell you can't tell non of them anything b/c as soon as someone gets pissed off all the "secrets" come to the light.

You never should have said anything to Kim, that was just wrong. However, Nene believing Gregg over you after she just got done saying he's a liar is confusing to me. I don't know why she didn't ask you about it like an adult rather than obnoxiously getting all up in your face , and I mean, right UP IN your face, in front of everyone and the camera. She made a complete spectacle of herself and should be embarrassed - no excuse for that one.

There are NO secrets on this show. If you say it, expect the cameras to show it. Kim isn't the ONLY bad guy on this show.

I do believe that there was a third party who needs to stand up about her part. I just hope you and NENE can get things smoothed out. Kim says alot of htings in secret and doesn't come clean, but what is done in the dark will come to light. Right she looks like the good guy, but it will grow old, and all she said will surface.

I think you are 50% right on your statement. Greg shouldn't have gone to a "supposedly" good friend of Nene's in the first place. Marriage is sacret and ordained by God. He should have been the MAN in the relationship and came to his wife for help or at least some advice being that she is the bread winner in the house hold for now. Dwight shouldn't have involved himself in the problem but the problem came to him. I do agree with your statement about Cynthia and Kim.

Dwight I absolutely loved u the in season 1. Then the falling out with NeNe. I am glad that you took her to the side, heared her out about why she was so upset and felt betrayed by you. Not only did you go behind her back with her husband but you told that business to Kim of all people. But i am glad you made it right with NeNe. As for Sheree goes and that Fashion show. I have to say in my opinion, the show would not have come together like it did without Dwight. I used to model and I know what go on behind stage. So even if you did or didnt put as much $$ into the show, you put your time and effort into it and it showed. Unlike her first "fashion show", as you put it so well, "fashion show with NO fashions". You should get you own show, I would watch it too. good luck!

No matter how you slice the cake...you were wrong. You should not have told Kim anything..exspecailly since Greg asked you not to say anything to Nee Nee. Not only did you start crap, you embrassed this man...it is already bad enough he having trouble with his loud, rude wife, apparently he don't have any friends seeing how that one guy blasted his business on the radio and he lives like a basement muggler in his own home on televison...you just add salt on a bad womb. You also lied on Cynthia...Kim was doing all the talking...you really need to stop running your mouth...are you even getting paid to be on this show. Get some business.

Well I was kind of confused at first because for some reason I couldn't understand what was going on or what was happening. SO I had to really pay attention to the show so that I could comprehend what was going on. You have to understand that you broke up a wonderful couple cause nene is beautiful and as for greg he was very stupid to fall for that tramp that he did. I didn't approve of your behavior nor your words at first at all. And how you were acting like towards phaedra when she was pregnant you were like with her 24/7 lol! And then when the ladies asked you when she was due you said that you didn't know or something like that . I don't even remember just great. and then when sheree had 1 of her events and you completely blew off or something. But I am glad that in the end of all this nonsense and stupidity you and nene were able to talk and dance that was real nice of you.

Cherry, I believe you've summed it up the best I've read in all the blogs till now, ....LOVE Dwight!, ......but it seems as though Dwight went a little nuts this season......SAD!

Dwight, I think you have misplaced loyalties, and you don't know how to maintain any long-term relationships. First of all, a gentleman's agreement is between the men folk, not their spouse, or their spouse's friends. I think that you talk too much and can't keep anything personal. You were wrong in what you did to Gregg, by saying anything to Kim. You were also wrong when you lied that Cynthia said something about Phaedra's pregnancy. Shame on you, you are nobody's friend.

Dwight you really made the first two seasons of RHOA. Nene now claims that you are a social climber, ha. You made her interesting, without you we would not have warmed to her so early. In the first season she says that she cannot hang with the wealthly women of Atlanta, that they have left her behind. But now that she has acheived a successful show she is leaving behind Gregg, Kim and you. Plus, what happened to her real dad and the aunt who raised her? Also she stated on the reunion show she cannot remember anyone from high school, c'mon. Everyone remembers someone from high school especially the school bully. But hey maybe that was Nene. I do remember reading on another site that in high school she was always fighting and having her...WIG...snatched off.

Dwight I don't know why you let that wretched cow steamroll you! She is evil and you have been wonderful to her. You need to just go on about your way and cut a wide path where she is concerned. She will always put herself first. She's no friend at all.

Are you for real? I love how you make comments about how terrible the gossip is yet nothing else comes out of your mouth..you literallly act a 15 year old girl. You move from housewife to housewife and either talk behind their back or try to take the credit for everything they do.. If you are so good at party planning and what ever else you do..you would have a hell of alot more to spare than $500 in any economy..GO AWAY... Gay is gay but you over exaggerate your gay and it is completely fake. Why can't you be gay without acting exactly like a women? and I do mean ACTING.

Dwight is a better person

Dwight you are better person than me because the way NENE handled you about her husband asking you for money whether you told Kim or not if it was me i would have been in jail or hell because there is no way i would have gone out like that.

I wish you were on every show. You make me howl when you gossip with these gals. If they don't put you on more they should offer you your own show. I think you are sincere and I liked it when you and Nene made up.

Dwight you were wrong, NeNe was suppose to be your friend, Then you moved on to the next (Phaedra) whom I happen to like, and never looked back to apologize or anything to NeNe until the last season,I appeared that you were only using them to stay on the show, I'm just saying. You know NeNe just as well as the other housewives and you should have known what her reaction was going to be. However I'm glad to see you finally apologize because you were wrong, Good Luck & Keep it real, You are being out shined by Lawrence, you better get up on your grind. Deuces

Dwight- You are a true gentlemen. I do not know how you put up with all the drama. I find you to be most sincere and very stylish. I do hate how you are always thrown under the bus and put right in the middle of all the nonsense. I love to see you on the show and wish to see more of you in the future! Have a wonderful off season.

To the Real Desperate Housewife of Atlanta...The real "Lady" of the hour... The one who has been just about each of the ladies friend on the show, only to stab them with a bedazzled studded cane in their backs, they should see right through you by now; I really hope Phaedra does before you charge her with your venom... You My Friend are one shady, trifling, messy Queen. But. what would one expect from any other Queen in Atlanta. How did you make it to be able to dine with Atlanta's socialite?? No one saw the slime that trails behind you?? It further lets me know that Atlanta is Full of Mess!!!!!

Dwight, I met you at a club in Georgia. You are a wonderful person. Very Classy & I love it. I can't see how you could get caught up in so much he said she said, and you're right. NeNe should have had the problem with her husband not you. I would love to see more of you on the show. You're simply marvleous. smooches

Hi Dwight, you had a gentleman's agreement which meant you don't tell anyone especially Kim. You also violated the agreement with Gregg. I think this was a sad situation. I think you are great but, please keep in mind and agreement is an agreement and it was not anyone's business but you and Gregg. I wish you would have thought about it before you spoke with Kim. Good Luck Dwight, keep being fabulous.

Dwight...you know Nene got her nose up her behind...She has so much anger right know...she is not trying to reconcile...she still bitter about that man to man deal among Greg and you...If you know what I mean...LOL

Dwight, I believe you honey. And the reason why Nene got so mad so easily at you is because she believes you too. She doesn't want anyone to know her "moneytrain" has fallen of the track. And telling Kim of all people was the last person to tell. Now she really doesn't like you. She likes feeling likes she's above others, and without money she feels low. That's why she went off on Kim so bad on the tour bus. Kim's making her own money. Dwight your a very nice, classy guy. Stay away from the low class.

Dwight, I want to say what a great person you seem to be. I just love the way you handle situations. I think as friends you, Phaedra, and Cynthia would be great. Cynthia needs to build your courage and self-esteem and you and Phadra can help her. She is trying hard to be friends with NeNe, but that is not the one she needs in her life. I believe your side of the money story, and you were true friend not to say anything to Craig's wife. As for Sheray, her true business was marrying money, not fashion design.

Dwight, Dwight, with this group you can not tell anybody anything. You could have saved yourself the drama by keeping that loan situation between Greg and yourself.

I agree with the ladies that called you out for telling Kim rather than NeNe. But what I don't get is why would Gregg need to borrow money from Dwight? As funny as I find Dwight, he's no better than Sloane on RHOC. Just latching on to anyone to stay connected to the show.

Diwight I think you were a great friend to loan Gregg the money in the first place, but as you stated. NeNe should have taken that up with her husband. Besides, anything Kim says should be taken with a grain of salt. I think you handled yourself well.

Dwight,

I know your kind. I pray that you get it together honey. You are all over the place with ALL the women. Getting in the middle of things with Nene and Gregg, a good friend would have told her right from the beginning about Gregg. And then kissing Pheadre's a-- just so you could keep yourself on tv, and you even tried to stir it up with her and the other ladies. You are not a gentlemen...you a playa!

1Dwight, I thought you and Nene would have put your disagreement to rest by this time. However, it seems Nene can't forgive betrayal of any kind from her friends and family. I liked the two of you together and I know you did apologize to her. Apparently, your apology was not enough. Phaedra is a funny lady and you have become her straight man. Together, you are a riot. Nene always said, "I love me some Dwight!". I hope you are able to rekindle your friendship with her; and, please, don't talk about Phaedra's personal problems. You don't want the same thing to happen with her, but I do see that phaedra is capable of forgiveness.

I think he was lieing about the whole situation....if Gregg borrowed money he, that should've been between the two of them...he should not have told nobody cause that was between them.....now the amount on the other hand he was out of line.....if he had 10,000 dollars to give somebody he should've kept it and fixes his nose........I'M JUST SAYING.......

God knows what the truth is about the $10,000 loan, but seriously people are we taking the word of Kim on this one. Kim just wants to have fun, she doesn't really remind me of a girl who cares if she has her facts straight, just speak or yell, stroke your blonde wig, and go on your merry superficial way. Gossip is the life blood of the show anyway. If the girls weren't fighting would anyone care to watch????

Isn't it odd that Greg asked to borrow $10k and accepted $500 then Nene found out and was quick to write a check to repay the debt? If Greg took the money, he obviously needed it. Does he (Greg) have access to any of "their" money? It's sad Greg couldn't put his hands on such a small amount of cash rather than asking to borrow from his wife's friend. Nene was angry and I'm sure the blowup was merely out of embarrassment and damage control. Greg let the secret out and she got mad. I would never let my man feel less than that he would be put in a situation like this. $500 seems so minimal while Nene portrays herself as a privileged housewife. I would be more inclined to finding a "real" job if I was either of them and stop this nonsense! I'm not a Nene fan as you can see, I think she is a wanna-be and is clearly out of control. Dwight, you played a huge roll in this too. You wanted to put Nene on blast and told her biggest rival her secret. You should be ashamed.. But why should I expect anything different!

I fell in love with Dwight from the first time he was on the show. He is fun and full of spunk. However, this season was just crazy. I'm not sure if it's editing or what, but Dwight seems very messy this season. I was on his side until he went to Phaedra and started that mess with lies that Kim called her child a alien baby. When we all saw and heard what she really said. Then Phaedra showed her immaturity by going hard on Kim when she wasn't even sure if it was true. Grown folk get their facts straight...then react. Instead of looking out for her best interest...Dwight got Phaedra running around looking like a damn fool confronting people (Kim and Cynthia) about crap that isn't even accurate. It was entertaining to watch but definitely not a good look for Dwight.

I'm sorry,but I don't believe Dwight's crap. I have lost all respect for you. As a friend to NeNe,you should have been loyal to her. And I find it hard to believe that Kim would get ten thousand dollars confused with five hundred dollars. You and Fakedra are some wanna be messy liars,and I hope Bravo gives you both the BOOT!!!

Dwight I agree with you. It was between Greg and Nene, you couldn't help that he approached you, or what you could loan to him, and it was the gentlemen's way to agree not to share this with Nene. A true gentleman, however, would not have shared the information with Kim. Of all people. Seriously.

She doesn't understand real humanity, real suffering, real friendship, discretion, kindness, love, or decency. I do not have a bone to pick with Kim, but its out there for all the world to see. No secret that she isn't loyal to ANYONE. Not saying that Nene is loyal either, but you don't have a leg to stand on when you don't "rise above" it.

Gossip is gossip, whether its true or not.

I think you are great. Thanks for your input.

This is the biggest load of crap I have ever heard..your loyalty was to NeNe as her friend not to her husband..And dont try to throw other people under the bus just because you got called out...What happened to the Dwight at first and who replaced him with this fake, dry, carbon copy???

I so agree with you. Dwight has class and dignity. I love him. I'm a little disappointed that I'm not seeing him that much this season. He has the right balance of class and fabulocity. Lawrence has a great voice but is a buffoon. Everytime I see him think..."Hated it." from In Living Colors- Mens on Film.

Dwight, Either way you would of been looked at as the bad person! I would leave this circle of friends alone. I give them a season or two more and there run is over. Its more going on in the ATL then reposession and foreclosures. I say forget them and move on!!!!

Born gay--decided to be gay. Who really cares at the end of the day. I don't have to defend being a straight woman. Just be you and whatever your belief system is at the end of your time deal with it then. I believe in God and I now that he doesn't want anyone judging thats for him to do. I love people no matter what born or their decision to be gay. How can you talk about God and say that Kim's lifestyle is convenient. You get a life! This is a show for entertainment at the end of the day your opinion or judgment of others is not going to matter. How can you be sure what Dwight is going to do.

Allyluvsya

Dwight regardless of the facts of the business agreement, if greg asked you not to tell Nene, why would you then go speak anything of it to someone who's been known to run their mouth? That doesnt make any sense. If you really cared about her as a friend, u would have gone to Nene yourself and give her your side of the story. Kim had nothing to do with it, and it makes both Kim and yourself look like high school gossip queens
