NeNe Leakes

NeNe gives her side of the Dwight drama and her impression of Phaedra.

on Oct 7, 20100

We're back with all the food eating, wine drinking, smack talking drama that only the Housewives of Atlanta can give. I'll be a "lady" and start with myself first! Seeing me and Gregg talk in the kitchen made me sad all over again. Sometimes when you're in certain a situation you don't always see clearly, but I can clearly see Greg still wasn't giving me the full truth. I do believe that there should be no secrets in a relationship. Kim told me that Dwight said he had loaned Gregg $10,000. I knew that number was inflated, because if Dwight had that kind of money, he would have gotten his nose reconstructed  because, "WHO WOULDNT WANNA BREATHE?" Hahaha LOL! I don't even remember saying that, but I obviouly did! 

So I head over to Sheree's house to show her the Life and Style article, but what you guys didn't see was me and Sheree cracking up laughing. Sheree says Kim is a media whore. Stop it girl! You can't get this anywhere but on this show. I love how these girls cut and stab each other then do the whole pretend friend thing. 

Kandi saying she's doing the whole celibacy thing but can have oral sex. Well what's the purpose of celibacy? Kim telling Kandi that she's coming to my house. I gotta agree with Kandi on this one. If you've been "strangled," as she called it, why would you put yourself in even more danger by coming to my house where I could do anything to you behind closed doors? Well you guys can try and figure it out, but my guess would be that Kim thinks she can say whatever she wants whenever she wants, but when I decide to challenge her opinions she immediately becomes "THE VICTIM" and I become "THE BULLY." At least that's what she wants the viewers to believe. There's more there than you're getting!

Hey NeNe! You look absolutely GORGEOUS !!!! IGNORE these idiots out there who has all their so called opinions about everything that means nothing at all. I agree with everything you said about how Kim talked to Sweetie....has Kim lost her mind? Why wouldn't Sweetie speak up for herself? oh well, it's early in the season. Lets see how it's all going to play out in the end. You take care of yourself and stay cool. Katherine

NeNe,

You have always been my favorite on the show. You tell it like it is and I like that! Phaedra has already pissed me off and I usually like to give any new housewife the benefit of the doubt, but I'm done with her. I hope this is her first and last season!

Keep it real!

Nene, I think you are great. Get answers though. It would be terrible if Dwight and Greg had a fling gone wrong or if Dwight was trying to buy more exposure on the show by soliciting Greg for 500.00 to help him get noticed more. Whatever it was I wouldn't rest until it was clear. Maybe you should see the psychic...

I watch your show all the time and you are a sharp sister because i like the one about you were telling your son about rihgt from wrong , and kids today disrespect there own parents and its a shame. i wish i had of listen to my mother because i went to a place where i didn,t belong and i cried day an night i want to go home. but i had to do my time in prison because i did wrong , their aren,t to many good parent in this world. kids need to love the lady that brought them in this world and listen there here to see us do right not wrong friends are no good in this world the only friends we have is our mother and father don,t hurt her brice help out around the house it won,t hurt you brother

NeNe I can only imagine how difficult it must be for you to have to turn your back on your son. I want to encourage you to make hime a priority at this stage in his life because young black brothers have a hard time at life in this day and age. I can give you a number of reasons why I believe this to be true and none of them will justify why he is failing to participate in his own destinym however, from a mother to a mother - don't cut him off. He needs you now more than any other time in his life. Best wishes to you both.

you obviously don't have or know someone who has a 30yr old at home, becasue they feel "welcome" there. She didn't tell him that he could't come visit, or that she didn't love him anymore. She gave him a goal, a closed date, so that he won't drag his feet. If more parents did this with their children, we woudl have so many 18-25 year olds sitting at home on thier parents couch, with no clue.

I L-O-V-E YOU!!!! NeNe, I enjoy watching tho goings on with the Atlanta Housewives, as I simply can relate to how they act and re-act to situations. They seem to live in a real world. I know the other shows are real too (I guess) not that relatable. Anyway --- mine line for last week was "10 thou-sand d o l l a r s!!!! LOL. TOOO FUNNY, inapporpiate yes, hilliarious - most definitely! It is unfortunately how I would have reacted. I think it was more, the nasty comments Dwight was making, and you feeling - how dare he... that probably set you off. I enjoyed that they didn't edit out the "clear the air" moment that you had this week, as I know we the viewers miss out on a lot of details that woudl make more sense without the editing.

---Looking forward to seeing the Season 1 NeNe back for Season 3 TJIndy

BRAVO, NeNe! Your speach to your son was on point! I recorded it and sent it to everyone who's dealing with the very same problems with their children! You are very wise, direct, articulate, real woman and I love you for your honesty! I am so happy you have allowed us into your life and home!

Ne Ne, don't ever change for anyone. There's nothing wrong with you except for some of the people around you. Keep doing your thang and telling it like it is. We need more people like you in the world.

Just my 2cents and keep the change!

Ok, I blasted on my first post (which wasn't put up ... it wasn't that bad) because of the way you handled yourself with Dwight, and some of the things you said in your previous post. Watching the show last night had me seeing a side of you that put you in a different light. I really felt for you when you had your talk with your son. And it takes a strong person to be able to apologize the way you did to Dwight. I really hope you get your "happy" back.

NeNe,

You dealt with Bryson appropriately. I'd like to see you do the same with adults. Your drag is nice, I wish your communication skills were equivalent. You didn't B____ splap Bryson don't do it adults. You have a awesome platform use to educate and elevate.

I absolutely love you NENE, but sometimes you let your anger let your ghetto overshadow your classy. You are definately fabulous but come on you ruined several events and parties with your loud talking and angry rants. You don't tell people that you feel wronged and communicate in private. By waiting until in public you create awkward moments and and overshadow the good evening. You did it to Kim and now you are doing it Dwight. A friend doesn't wanna fight every time a their friend makes a mistake. That isn't fair because I am sure there are things you wish you could take back that you've done that hurt your friend.

Love you to Life, Kia.

Nene I cried when you had your conversation with Brice. I had a similiar conversation with my 20 year old son a few hours before I watched the show. He asked to come back home and I told him no. I just can't do it. He didn't appreciate being at home. Although it hurts me that he's living place to place he has to learn on his own.

Nene, your conversation with your son touched my heart, made me cry. I feel for all the mothers out there who have children that are going astray, you're right, those kids will never know how you feel till they have their own children. I just love how real you are and you're sensitive side is very touching.....

Now the situation with Dwight could've been handled better, in private.

The way you dealt with Dwight this time around was so much better and I was happy to see the two of you have a reconciliation. It was also deeply touching to see your pain dealing with your son.

NeNe, I love you girl. You are so real and you keep it real. I had a friend once to turn her back on me also. Yeah, it hurt like hell. Because these are the people we trust and need for some kind of confort. But I have come to realize they are human to. Learn from this, it will only make you stronger as a woman, a wife, a friend and a mother. Baby you are Dwight`s mom, you`ve raised him, you`ve done your motherly duties. He is a young man now, tough love is what our young men need this day and time. You keep your head up. Keep being the Diva that you are. God made no mistake when he created NeNe. Just keep handling your business as that strong black woman you are. God Bless You...

Mother's love and friendship....OMG Nene you made me cry both times with your son, baby I don't have kids but a host of nieces and newphews and I apply the same principal to them as well. You don't want to see them going in to wrong direction...honey I was their myself and my parents was upset and heart, but through it all I came back to my roots.

You and my man Dwight looked like to lost loving souls at the party; and praise the Lord both of you took time to talk amongst yourselves. I said you was wrong on the 1st episode, and prayed that you will apologize because a "real friend" is truly hard to find. That is a woman as well as a man to admit when you are wrong and the embrace was pure with you two....baby don't make me cry anymore.

Also; my advise is take a minute to breathe you are under alot of stress with you and hubby and take time out to pray, sleep, and seek answers and resolve the issues. Honey 13yrs is a long time and I am sure you both will work it out.

My prayer has been answered with you and Dwight, now I pray that your son get it together, he's young and making mistakes they think they know it all, you have been their, done it, and showing him the way of walking the right path.

Love you NeNe

NeNe, I want to tell you that I loved the way you spoke to your son on tonights show! You seemed to feel bad or felt like you had to explain yourself for getting so angry but you did the right thing. Whether he pays attention or not is not up to you. You have done your job as a loving and concerned mother. What he does now is up to him. Stay strong!

NeNe, I love you. You are so genuine & beautiful. Don't listen to the "haters". I can understand why you went off on Dwight. He was supposed to be your friend and he talked about you behind your back. I believe Dwight misses your friendship but he could not help himself because he is jealous of your success, just like the rest of them, including your husband Greg. Your anger and rage has to do with your distrust of Greg, your disappointment towards your son & your backstabbing friends. By the way, if it wasn't for you I would NOT even watch the show. NENE YOU ARE THE SHOW!!!!!!!!!!!!! Stay real.
