NeNe Leakes

NeNe refuses to let any of the girls' comments bring her down.

on Dec 5, 20110

I've been a working girl and haven't spoken about the last few episodes! We are up to the fifth episode, and the girls have talked about me in every one. Is that hating or what? My thoughts are simply that they have their own opinion and I have mine! I just have to continue to do me. I laugh when watching the show, because it seems as if they all got together and said, "We're going to talk about her and say this and that! We're going to say Cynthia is up her a--!" All of this nonsense has truly backfired, because it has helped me in every way. So for that I say thank you!

I'll touch on last week and this week so let's go! Kandi's birthday party -- I had been out of the state working, and once I returned, Kandi personally invited me to her birthday party. I was willing to go even though we don't always get along with the same people. Phaedra decided to give her a gift which was a monster-esque stripper that jumped out of a box and put his privates in his mouth. Then he put it into Kandi's glass, stirred it up, and handed it back to her. It was just disgusting, so I decided to leave. Yes, I've heard all the talk wondering why I would be put off when I used to be a dancer! And yes, I used to be a dancer. It was twenty years ago, and I'm not ashamed of it. I danced as a single mom to support myself when I was in my twenties after getting out of an abusive relationship. Not once however did I bend over and suck my own lady parts. I've done a lot of things in my life that I wouldn't dare do today, and I would have to credit that to growth! I'm a real woman. I have lived and learned. I embrace who I am and don't look to anyone for validation.

NeNe you are wounded from all the back stabbing . Phadra and Kandie could be your friends if you let them. Stop the madness and the paronia please.

Sorry for the chaos with your son and husband. I think this season your showing signs of wear and tear. WHY would you bring Marlo on the trip? BACKUP...and FOR WHAT? A sidekick. And WHO started talls and smalls. Blacks always find ANOTHER WAY to SUBDIVIDE by yet another mediocre unsubstantial TRIVIAL way. ...smh Marlo is just going along for THE CHECK...I meant the ride to get on tv on your coat tail. I wish you well...and many seasons to come.

You were dead wrong for inviting Marlo on the trip. However, i was impressed at the level of class you displayed in trying to mediate Sheree and Marlo's argument. Good for you!

Ha Kim posted follow her blog first then Nene Leakes ran and did it. Too. Idk what show Nene watched because from the beginning they all said they would like to get to know Marlo. It really didn't have anything to do with you. Your the one that befriended Marlo and tried to turn her against everyone else. No one else was telling Marlo anything negative about you. You lie. You never have anything good to say about anyone but Marlo yet when they treat you like you treat them then you scream they jealous..Hope You don't do anymore talk shows until you can do something other then look like a Cheshire cat and nodding your head. #getaclue

I miss the old Nene. All I see is so much anger in you. There are no hatets. You are blessed with good health, your children are okay and you have roof over your head. You are richest person. Let it go and be true to yourself.

Trust me Nene, Pheadra is genuine. Kandi is just ... annoying, going back and forth. Cynthia is just a woman of peace. But Sheeeeeereeee... *pass the sick bucket. Cant stand her. she gives a new meaning to the word fake.

Nene shoes and designer labels don't make you classy. Your behavior in Africa was embarrassing. Disrespectful, rude and totally clueless about other culture. You and Marlo looked ridiculous in Africa. Talk about ugly Americans. Do you know what that means? And Marlo using the F word! Really why is no one call her on that? Classless!!!!!!!!!

neenee, it's amazing how much you"ve changed. i think that you are very fake and unhappy. do you have any friends? what happened to diane? she finally realizedthat you are full of it. i hope that you open your business and no one shows because you can"t handle fame or the little money that you have. and by the way you are not that rich. espiecally donald trump rich! you want be more than you really are. fake, shady and lonely, as well as unhappy. hopefully, your time will be up soon. you were my favorite the very first season but now i seriously wish you lose it all because you are mean and a bully.

Nene, I really like you and how your present yourself. I think people hate on you because they do not understand you. I have to say, I'm very proud of you. I don't think you should necessarily make up with Kim as a friend, just be cordial and respectful. Do not continue to allow her to change who you are and how you present yourself to the world. Never let anyone change you! I know its hard, but that's where you have the control and final say so on how much you allow her to effect you. I think she's pissed because you got her number. I don't think its a good idea to make up because she truly showed what type of friend she is to others. Honestly, I don't think she respects black people, particularly, black women! You can tell her true character when she screwed over Kandi so royally on international television! Not once, but twice! What's funny is that Kandi still loves her. SHe has an issue with you (someone who never took money out of her pocketbook or food out of her daughter's mouth), but the ONE person who has on the show, she's the closest to! Makes you wonder!?! As for Marlo, I think its hilarious that ALL of the other girls LOVED her in the beginning when they thought that the two of you meeting could turn into a knock down, drag out fight or at least the second Cold War, but when you shocked them and was nice, cordial, open to getting to know her and eventually befriending her, now they can't stand her and talk so much about her and the your friendship with her. If that wasn't obvious and negative, I don't know what is! I say keep doing you, keep it positive and continue to learn and grow. They say when we stop learning, we stop living, so live, GIRLFRIEND!

Nene you're my favorite!!! The trip to South Africa had me in tears from laughing. The fashion, the arguing and Marlo making a rain in the club. Keep up Nene and dont let anyone bring you down.

RHOA’s trip to South Africa was amazing. Getting past Nene and Marlo's ridiculous request for "servants" and their safari fashion show, it was great to see the ladies put themselves and their egos aside to be so loving, generous, and interactive with the children and people of South Africa.

The ladies of RHOA are often portrayed as selfish, self-serving, money hungry, drama having middle aged women who have nothing else better to do but rip each other apart. As entertaining as this may be, this week’s episode showed another side of them and I loved it. It would be nice if BRAVO showed more of that on the show. I have no doubt that everything that was given to the people in South Africa and the emotion shown during their visit to the village was genuine and heartfelt so, why not bring that home and use your fame and fortune to benefit and help others? Phaedra said it. All of you ladies are very fortunate to live the lives you lead and it would be a shame to let it all go to waste.

Nene, what happened to your non-profit Twisted Hearts? You are walking away from something bigger than you can imagine. The impact you can have on the lives of so many women and children through your organization is immeasurable. You should reconsider and move forward with Twisted Hearts. But on another note, I cannot get with Marlo. I really think she’s trying to find a place on the show. Her being the fiancé of the guy that Nene was supposedly dating makes it hard to believe that she doesn’t have a separate agenda for befriending Nene. And Nene has taken on a new attitude as well. She has become more superficial than ever! Label name dropping, turning her nose up at the other ladies, and of course, the over use of the word fabulous is ridiculous. “Making it rain” and flipping off Sheree in the club was not only childish and inappropriate of Marlo, it was also embarrassing. Nene has had some foolish moments but, I think even she is too mature and lady like to really be friends with Marlo.

I don't think it's fair to blame you for Marlo coming on the trip, since it was Sheree and Phaedra who pushed to get Marlo on the show in the first place. I now see why you called 'the classy attorney' Fakedra. Thinking back on previous seasons, Sheree said she wouldn't put Nene and fashion in the same sentence, and when Sheree left your name off the guest list for one of her parties; it is clear to me that Sheree always thought that she was better than you. I think you're hurt on how things have turned out with the girls when all of you have said things and done things but they blame you for everything. Girl, if you didn't have haters, you must not be doing anything. I see pictures with you having a good time in LA filming Glee and hanging out with your son. I think its unfortunate that Sheree, Phaedra and Kandi are trying to make something bad about your friendship with Cynthia because friends supposed to be loyal to one another. I hope to see you in a movie one day.

NeNe, oh where do I start. GIRL you went on GLEE and Yes Girl you walked in the room and you owned it. You got a standing ovation at my house for your debut on GLEE. We all hope to see you on more episodes. You are a great actress. As far as the Housewives, well you will always be my fav. I've got to tell you, you are working it with that blonde wig in your commentaries on the show. That style is exceptionally beautiful on you. Well, as always, keep on keeping it real and know that you've got to be something really special to have all those haters. And by the way, THE TALLS WILL ALWAYS OUT DO THE SMALLS.

You are a motivating force. Thank you!!! Please continue to be the very best you can be, because you are a role model to me and a lot of other women. I once heard a saying "Don't fake the funk on a NASTY dump." (I know right :) I shared that to say you only have to respond to any of the negative comments nor do you have to carry haters. Don't wear your nerves or your heels down."

P.S. You never have to blow out another persons candles to celebrate. I can tell you've heard and are trying to apply those lessons...Please pass it on.

NeNe used to be my favorite because I felt she was very straight forward and honest, but now...I no longer care for her...she's always bragging about her riches; careful NeNe..haven't you heard the saying "here today, gone tomorrow" watch how you deal with others.

NeNe is so funny, charming and witty. I Just wish she had better social skills when it comes to getting along with others. I think she is going to learn some things from watching Marlo that she did not expect to learn. I hope NeNe will have enough in her to know when to cut Marlo loose. Marlo is only pretending to like NeNe to get some air time.

I was embarrassed as an American that NeNe and Marlo couldn't manage to live w/out high-heel shoes,excessive coutre, and a hair stylist! Really!! Your on a safari! The nerve of Marlo asking to be carried to the Jeep was disgusting!! Being rich girls doesn't mean being snotty witches when you are a guest in another country!! If your going to "represent" maybe have a little class!

Nene, I am so happy that you are doing sooooo well!! Keep it up my girl and do ignore the haters, on the show and off the show. You are my absolute favorite as well as Cynthia and Marlo. Phaedra, I really think you are quite likable,realistic and smart however, distance yourself a bit from Sheere, Kandi and Kim...really, they are not-nice.

You are looking in the mirror when you look at Marlo! At least you recognized your actions - I'll give you that. One difference between you and Marlo is Marlo acting worse than you have to the point of you being surprised at her actions! Marlo wants to quote etiquette but she still lives in the jail cell she was once living in! Cut her loose....

Wow, what a shame...NeNe. You had the opportunity to visit the mother land and absorb some of your culture and you turn it into a joke with your side kick Marlo. Just two clowns giving a show and embarassing all that watched your your shuck and jive bull. I mean what was the point of you going to Africa...as you said you are not that type of girl (able to appreciate and grow from an amazing experience). Instead we get the same old s***t. To bad, I know you can do better, but you won't especially while hooking up with Marlo, who blew it for you.

NeNe, I am moving to Atlanta soon, and will become a licensed realtor as well as a small business owner (candy buffets). It would be great to meet with you about how I can market my business and network in the right places. What is happening with you is that there is jealousy that nobody wants to admit to. All of you ladies have something different to offer, and just imagine how powerful that would be instead of the petty nastiness we see every week. You probably get a ton of offers and requests do endorse this or that, but I would greatly appreciate the chance to show you that being affiliated with me is the way to go. You can only be you. That is all. Carry on. As you were. Dropping the mic. Peace. rorydouthard@gmail.com

one last thing Kim she acts like she is better than all of you since she got a man, why do women act that way as much as we women go through, it should be a bond from the heart. Done deal for me.

I wonder what the elegant ladies of television especially ones of color think about how all of you act. You really shame us all and Maya Angelou who is so elegant, classy, brilliant and articulate. I know she probably just hears about all of you and you prove just how a lot of women act, while someone is coming through the door, the cameras capture one of you saying, here come those B's which is really raunchy and thugish to say and as they enter the room, you hug them and welcome them, so phony, needless to say.

NeNe, you so much better this year then last year and I am enjoying you on the show. And YES you acted like Marlo - oh my gosh what were you thinking befriending her and asking her to Africa. Cut her off and don't get dragged down with trash. Trash with money is still trash but more mouthy.......

nene that was not nice of you to bring marlo on the trip u became her friend when you saw her and kandi arguring you need to grow up especially talking about how rich you are u know u never had nothing because as soon as you started getting a little bit of money u started acting funky with everyone including your husband gregg dont act like that was one of the reasons you left him becaue he borrowed money...honey a real housewife wouldve held her husband down are a fake and phony. if i was cynthia i would watch out for you around peter we all seen it when he was coming down the aisle how you were staring and licking your lips like yall two had a good time the night before the wedding

Im surprised that this NENE person remains on the show, i recall that she attacked a coworker, showing everyone who she is and she should have been jailed for being an animal and instead she is still on this show..maybe this makes "good television"..but as i tried to watch an episode recently and she didnt know who a world famous, very important spiritual leader was...it was painfully embarrassing to watch...i dont think she has the intelligence to be embarrassed for herself but i was very embarrassed for her..was there anyone not? or were alot or most amused? i can only hope she will finally do something so embarrassing or criminal, hopefully without violence, that the network replaces her!

Bravo, Please post my comment. Thank you.

NeNe I miss you and Kim being "friends". I don't like all the negative drama. I think it started with Kim not letting you take part in "Tardy for the Party". Last season was way over the top for me. I like the fun NeNe, not the one that always so negative with so much drama. You have changed more than the other "housewives". I am happy that you are getting opportunities do other things, but you are coming off phony to me when you do interviews or co-host shows. Kim also changed, but she still acts like herself. People are expected to change for the better (I hope). Kim and Sheree didn't have a problem saying "Hi" to you, but you had a problem with just saying "Hi" to them. I think since the cast has to work together, all of you need to at least try to respect one another. If nothing else they need to be cordial to one another.

I would like to see the show involve the housewives in more positive roles. I know everyone wants to see the arguing, cursing and fighting but come on. I think NeNe is given a very hard time for her past but I'm sure everyone of those ladies have something that would make them look less than perfect. But this is reality TV, which makes everyone look bad including women, men, black, white, mixed, straight and gay! But although NeNe gets pounded all the time, she comes off more genuine than any of the ladies and I can at least respect that. There are a couple of them that don't play fair and a couple that play both sides of the fence!
