NeNe updates us on all the changes in her life and gives her side of the argument with Sheree.
Posted by NeNe Leakeson Nov 7, 20110
We’re back! First I would like to say thanks to everyone that tuned in to see the premiere! Since last season lots of things have changed in my life, and I would like to think that they’ve changed for the better. As some of you may know, I appeared on NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice and made major business contacts, which has lead me to launching my own wine called Miss Moscato. I'm now a restaurateur! I invested in a pizza franchise called Famous Famiglia and I'm currently working on opening bars and lounges in airports and casinos in different states. I couldn't do any of this without the grace of God who strengthens me.
Now on to the show! My boys mean the world to me, and I want them to have better than I did. My son Bryson has made a few mistakes like any 21-year-old might. Sometimes good people make bad choices, but that doesn’t mean they’re bad! It means they are human. We went out to buy Bryson a car, which I was happy to do. I bought his car with cash money simply because I could!
Love you Nene! Don't change for anyone, just ignore the haterz and i know ur good at doin that. Without you RHOA would not exist. Cynthia is ur only true friend on the show, i like Marlo too. Kandi plays both sides, Phaedra can be ok but gets drawn in by Kandi mostly. Keep them talking, bcuz when u walk into the room you own it!! BLOOP!!
Nene, Everybody is not hating on you!!! If you are RICH just thanks God for blessing you to be rich. America have plenty of rich peoples.You don't hear them saying they are RICH and everybody is hating on them or everybody is jealous of them. when God blesses his peoples you don't have to say a word.It will be seen by all peoples.
NeNe love your realness on the show, always keeping it real and truthful. Stay true to yourself. ou make the show and you have grown so much in transition from beginning days. Be Blessed and stay RICH GIRL!!
If sheree was sooooo wrong why did you fly off the handle when she made a phone call to back up her story? You took off faster than the lies come out of your mouth. I don't understand why people love you because I can't stand how you think you are so much better than everyone else because news flash - you aren't at all. Get over yourself
NeNe, good for you, God has truly blessed you. I know you always say that you are keeping it real and saying what you think...however, there is a line one crosses when being honest is miss used and becomes an excuse for being downright mean and disparaging. It seems you do that regularly, and as a result, I am no longer a fan. I know many others feel the same! Obviously Kim is in a better place now and you could be a big person and be happy for her. Same with the rest of your friends including Cynthia who would walk on hot coals for you! Stop with the mean remarks about her and all the others. It doesn't make you attractive to the sorts of things you want to draw into your life.
NENE hold your head up girl ,they are all just jealous of you.Girl you have a lot going on for yourself.SHE MAN, LOL I mean Sheree if she was your true friend she will still be as of now....love you girl
I must say that I have loved you Nene from day one and knew that you were going to be the it girl of Bravo! I can't get enough of you and you could do no wrong to me. I do feel the strong hate from Sheree on your success and her attempt to sabotage you. You have such woman swag that she doesn't really have and she must back off! I'm a faithful viewer of all Bravo shows but ATL Housewives with you Nene in it is what I need every week. Love you girl!
you have done well for yourself and they are only sheree is broke and she knows it stop even entertaining them. you are young and smart keep being friends with cynthia she a real friend . them only problem i have with candy is she is phony she talks about everyone behind there back and she is insecure hey she been had money and why is she a house wife lol
Hope you stay with Gregg, get rid of Cynthia she is too weird her and father smurf are creepy...they try very hard to be as disruptive and unlikable as possible its not really working because they are trying too hard, if they become too unlikable too soon, it will not work out in their favor...Cynthia last season came across as Phoney and this season the same...the reason everyone liked you during Season 1 and 2 you were not a phoney...Cynthia is phoney
personally, I love nene! just seem to me that, they know she is going through some things, and hating that she isn't showing it. I really don't know why the rest act as if there mess don't stink.....why don't you all quit hating, and get a life, it is clear that this show is edited alot, and wouldn't be a show if someone wasn't like...if you ask me, I say keep doing your thing nene.....and i feel the rest on shree....does look like a man to me,,,,just my opinion.
keep doing you nene
shree always seemed to have helped someone, but you never see her doing it.(you think!) and actress please, just sit down
let your haters be your haters, and do you!
Love you! SO glad you walked away from that conversation with Sheree. I feel like you're really growing, the old Nene would have engaged in that mess and stooped down to her level. By walking away and having her CHASE you out of a restaurant to yell insults (WTF???) you made her look more like an idiot than anything you could have possibly said. Keep it up!!
Frankly, I'm confused. You go on a show where you advertise how successful and rich you are but offer nothing valuable to others. No humor, no interest, no insight, just self-absorbtion and boring conversations full of blaming others for their lack of love for you. Stop trying to impress others and start offering some useful contribution to a cause worth listening to instead of your own self promotion.
NeNe, I adore you! But sometimes the things you say make me cringe simply because of the shouting. It makes you appear venomous. I would always have your back were we personal friends though. You do what I do, only I do it in a calmer, more quiet voice and I don't impose on anyone physically. BUT, I am all for someone who nips things in the bud and does not let anyone skate when they make comments that are not true or unkind, or deserve to be challenged.
I enjoyed you on The Apprentice, and please NeNe, you should not have played the game with Star - she behaves like a snake and you don't know from snake, it is just not in you - remember what she did to Barbara Walters...Star has lost her cache, don't throw yours away on haters, Pleeeeease!
I can't read half of these comments. Not only can you not spell but you can't take your own advice. You're telling her not to "talk down to others" and yet all I've seen are negative criticisms. First off, she's a grown woman. If she yells BACK at someone then that's HER reaction. If you don't like it then don't watch. How she is as a parent or as a person or as a friend or as a business owner is none of your concern. Being on the show draws attention to her actions but it doesn't mean that she should have to conform to how you think she should be. She does just fine being herself. The rich comment was blown completely out of proportion and considering the whole conversation was based off of Sheree discussing FINANCIAL MATTERS and saying that NeNe tried to STEAL MONEY she is justified in stating that her finances are in order. And no she probably couldn't comfortably afford a nine million dollar estate but they wouldn't ever show her a property without her finances being preapproved and especially with a property so expensive. You can't just stroll into mansions to look around without your papers being in order. None the less, some accountability is in order for the other women and their behavior and all of you with your judgemental statements.
Nene, I saw you on Watch what happens live.... when you were playing that game naming people, and saying stuff like 'kandie's big hips' YOU ARE HALARIOUS and very entertaining and tell nothing but the truth. thats why i love you and i will never ever turn out to anything your on. for every hater you have, trust me, you have 4+ fans.
NeNe, I can say your the only one off this show that I see the most on TV, your big mouth has made you. Not saying it's good, I hope you really don't get up in women face's like that, you know what they say you may just be the one that will end at the bottom. Your the oldest of the housewives, you have been thru some difficult times in your life, Now that your on this show please set a postive example. I wish you the very best on your journey, well I can say that for all of you, For some reason they talk about Cynthia being soft. Cynthia seems to be the only one that does not bring drama, Cynthia is a Model she has seen like she mention the world, I know she has been around drama in her career watch that comes in every career. Like I said before this is TV drama filled.
NeNe with the Big Mouth that's what My Mom calls you..(SMILE)
Nene I absolutely love you! For one you have not changed at all you have remained the same throughtout the Atlanta series, Now Sheree first season was acting like she was miss rich seven figure classy woman. But when she ended up being broke now she is chasing you, calling you bitches and things. It appears she is the one who has changeD. She is boring , Kandi is really boring and the only thing interesting they have to talk about is you. I think you should have your own show or do a talk show. Your stardom has risen above everyone else. You are the main reason people tune into the show. EVERYONE ELSE IS BORING!!!!! Anyway keep being you and blowing kisses to all these haters (cracks me up every time)
she gets on my nerves with her comments.. you shouldnt brag about being rich ? its very tacky .. stop being so angry haha u make me angry watching u talkin to people like u do calm down its not classy.
Ms. Ne Ne....I love you and I think your strong person but you had a rough few years and trying hard to protect yourself and let everyone know that your more than they ever thought and you made it. But you dont have to lose you through this mess, it keep yourself humble and ask yourself if you would want your sons to protray themselves this way.
You need to learn how to be humble. You keep up a lot of confusion and you know "FOR GOD IS NOT THE AUTHOR OF CONFUSION, BUT OF PEACE, AS IN ALL CHURCHES OF THE SAINTS." 1Corithians 14:33.. You have mentioned a few times that you have peace; however, your action and behavior does not reflect "PEACE." You are quick to say someone is jealous of you, but it's seems as if it's you that is jealous of others. Stop saying God has blessed you to open a bar at a Casino... I mean Really!!! Maybe you don't know this but, God don't BLESS NO MESS!!!!!! Start being true to yourself, maybe then you can start being true to others... Just like it is given to you, it can also be taken away. I'm happy for you that you have and are "RICH"... But , "FOR WHAT IS A MAN PROFITED, IF HE SHALL GAIN THE WHOLE WORLD, AND LOSE HIS OWN SOUL? OR WHAT SHALL A MAN GIVE IN EXCHANGE FOR HIS SOUL?" Matthew 16:26.... I feel you can be a good person, but you shouldn't let anyone take or bring you out of your character. Because in the end, you have no one to blame for your true character but you, and not others! Being you is one thing, but to be alley and unprofessional on National TV is another. No amount of money in the world should be worth you ruining your character or Image. Be encouraged and by all means stayed prayed up and let the true peace of God, reflect thru your attitude and personaility. You won't have to say a word or convince anyone about your inner peace, because it will be reflected through you...(ex: the way you carry yourself and your conversations)
WoW! Good luck on your move! Please make it very soon, Miami is the perfect place for you......I doubt very much that anyone in Atlanta will be missing you! If and when you do make the move, I'll be tuning into the Atlanta Housewives show again.
Love it or Hate it, I clearly don't understand why people actually take the time to hate on NeNe if you don't like her who cares don't watch the show cause without NeNe what would the show be about lol. go get a life Haters
I saw "if sheree was a real friend she wouldnt accuse nene of stealing money" but if nene was a real friend she wouldnt have stolen it. I believe sheree, when people are caught in lies like nene was they get loud and defensive and talk over someone who could of told them the truth. Everyone else was saying one thing and nene was saying another..
we like watching the show because of you.. You are so obnoxious and make such a fool of yourself it makes us laugh.. We laugh that you say you keep it real but than we notice you lie a lot. You call everyone else a hater but you are the worst. Please dont start acting like a lady cause than you wouldn't be worth watching. I do feel bad though even if you bring it on yourself cause you seem so unhappy but if you want to put your business out there .. I'll watch..
NeNe, You could give Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde a run for their money. I looked forward to seeing you during Season 1, but you have turned into a bully. There's an old saying that states "some of the people are wrong some of the time; some of the people are wrong all of the time; all of the people are wrong some of the time but all of the people aren't wrong all of the time. It appears everyone is wrong except you and everyone is hating on you. Please take a look in the mirror. And while you're at it, please stop hating on Kandi. You have shown her nothing but disrespect from day one. You've called her ghetto, insulted her voice, insulted her songwriting ability (Grammy anyone?), and tonight, made fun of her thighs. BTW, you were also rude to Andy Cohen tonight. Isn't he the executive producer of the Housewives franchise? FYI, see Jill Zarin, et al, formerly of the NY Housewives.
hey nee nee we gotta meet always let your haters b your motivators just stay real to yourself and the rest will go with ya or leave ya and stand tall ur good where the real blonde girls i get so many are u nene lets do lunch or a cocktail
You didn't do yourself any favors by stating you were "rich". That just made your haters see red more. You stated what everyone else on that show especially Sheree and Kim try to perpertrate that "they got it like that". Let's face it unless any of you are in the top 1-2% you're not hitting on nothing and just throwing your money around as you choose and calling yourself what you want to be, harming who?
I do hope that you get back to who you were in the earlier shows. I recalled you held several charity events so it wasn't all about making appeareances at that time. You are a large comely woman with a large personality and I believe a equally large heart don't lose- that which you are.
NENE, YOU ARE MY GIRL CUZ YOU KEEP IT REAL. I KNEW WHAT YOU MEANT WHEN YOU SAID THAT YOU WERE RICH BOO, I TOTALLY FEEL YOU. PEOPLE NEED TO GET THEIR MINDS RIGHT AND OUT OF YOUR POCKET TRYING TO COUNT YOUR MONEY. IF ANYTHING SHEREE NEEDS TO SIT BACK AND TAKE NOTES BECAUSE SHE IS STILL TRYING TO CASH A CHECK AFTER HER HUSBAND WHEN YOU WENT OUT AND GOT YOUR OWN. YOU CONTINUE TO DO YOU BOO!!! LOVE IT!!!
I get Ne Ne I came from nothing too and uses to be an exotci dancer as well, but I'm a NRCMA/NREMT/NCICS and married to military so despite how Sheree feel about you keep your head up baby because she's just jealous. She should have spoke to you first before anyone else and not dish out how you looked before or what happened in your life. Misery loves company and she's miserable because you made a come up and she want you to depend on people and stay down in the dumps! WELL DON'T LET IT BOTHER YOU KEEP YOUR HEAD AND SMILE HARD!
I love Nene, I admire her wit & self assurance. Unlike most people she says what's on her mind & doesn't hold any punches! Let's keep it real, love her or hate her, she is the ONLY reason anyone watches the show! Nene keep doing what your doing. You have your fans & your haters on the edge of their seats waiting to see you in action this season.
I wanna start by saying i think your a wonderful person.You are not made to be perfect.I think no one can judge you on anything but God.I will also like to add i find it very Green(jealous) of your part-time friends to talk crap about the fact that you have changed since being on the Apprentice with Mr.Donald Trump.When Sheree said you need to humble yourself.I don't think she knows what it is like to go from being abused and then a stripper to where you are now.I hear so many woman say they will do whatever it takes to provide for their child but you did.I can relate to that i am a single mom of two one with special needs i dance and do whatever it take to provide..I think you are a strong woman keep doing you and your family.Your a human not a machine no one is perfect...Sheree is suppose to be your friend of long years she should not be such a two faced woman.My opinion Sheree is the hoodiest of you all.
The Bloogers said it all...NeNe is not a good person!
She lacks intergrity and humility.
Seriously, 9 million dollar house?
Who does she think she's fooling?!
I doubt she would even qualify for a million dollar home.
Maybe in Atlanta thats considered rich???lol
People with real money don't through it in anyone's face.
It speaks for itself- like our wealthy BHHW darlings!
I hope you blog this week so I can say this again. Cynthia made a great point. All Kim has done since she has been on the show is show her expensive furniture, clothes, brag about Poppa's money, etc. Even Lisa said that she would rather remain wealthy. Now when you do it, it is a problem. Someone get Sheree a business. Of all of the Housewives franchises, she is probably the less successful. She is not well liked. She doesn't even get very many comments on her blogs. They can't even publish all of your responses, but I'm sure every one who comments on her blogs get thier comment published. Bravo needs to let her go. Boring!!!
