Boy does it feel good to be blessed to come back for another season! I thank you guys for watching and supporting, even though at times it does get a bit crazy.
During my time off I spent a lot of time with my family and friends, I’ve traveled a bit, I’ve been getting booked for events/appearances, I’ve been doing a little dating, and I’m super busy with my kids’ extremely active schedules! I am officially Kaleigh, Kairo, and their friend’s chauffeur! I say that jokingly, but they are very athletic and talented, so their schedules are pretty hectic. But I don’t mind because you know what they say about idle hands. Keeping family at the center is always a great thing.Now on to Episode 1. I guess you want to know how it all began. A really good friend of mine, Charlie Mack, contacted me about an appearance for a charity event in Philly. He asked if I could work with any of the other Housewives. So I said yes, if I’m getting paid, I could work with anyone! So I reached out to NeNe’s girl who does her bookings. I asked if she was available on that date and what her rate was. I forwarded all of the info to Charlie, and he said it was a done deal.
I then started getting calls from NeNe and her friend who books her appearances. She asked me about the details surrounding the event, like whose event it actually was, who contacted me, etc. They then go on to say that NeNe actually knows the guy (Tyrone) whose charity weekend it was. Then they said that NeNe would deal directly with him. I said OK, no problem. Later that day I got calls from Charlie saying, "Whoa, your girl NeNe is really tripping, she’s on some other ish.” To elaborate, NeNe called Tyrone several times complaining about him booking me for the amount I was being paid, all the while on speakerphone, obviously unbeknownst to her. She stated that since he knew her first, he should have booked me through her! She went on to say that he shouldn’t pay me the agreed upon rate, because she could have gotten me for a much lower rate, which would have created more money for her. She was saying that she should make the most out of all of us yada yada yada!
Excuse me? You are getting the monetary amount you asked for. Why would you try to stop or get in the way of someone else? What’s the problem? Why would she feel the need to do this? Greed, envy, jealousy… This info comes from someone whom I’m very close to and I consider him to be one of my dear, loyal, and trustworthy friends, Charlie Mack. I was actually going to call him as well, but NeNe took off before I could! I wonder why? The funny thing is I felt that there could be some truth to what Charlie was saying, because I have experienced this type of undermining, manipulating behavior in the past from NeNe. Bottom line it doesn’t matter what the dollar amount is, it’s the principle! If someone can smile in your face while stealing behind your back, that’s a conniving, evil person that I do not care to have around me. I personally like to surround myself with positive people that I can trust and that are loyal and want to see the next person excel. NeNe is not that someone. Let me also say that I applaud anyone, including NeNe, for choosing to elevate their life to a higher level, but by no means does it justify looking down or betraying others. My mother always told me, “The people you look down upon on your way up will be the same people you look up to on your way down.”
The day we met up, my intentions were to have a logical conversation with her, but unfortunately things didn’t go as planned. While listening to her deny the whole thing, I chose to call Tyrone first (before Charlie Mack), because I assumed it would be OK since just one day before we met she told Kandi that she didn’t know what my problem was, because Tyrone is her boy and they talk all the time. Well I’m sure “your boy” wouldn’t make these wrongful accusations about you and your character! Once I get him on the line, of course predictable NeNe does what she’s famous for when she’s wrong, she talks so loudly the truth can’t be heard and never lets anyone get their point across. NeNe revels in saying negative things about others, but cringes at the mere thought of someone exposing her for who she really is. I just wanted to tell her that her actions were uncalled for, and that there’s enough money to go around for all of us. She told me what her rate was, and that’s what she was going to get. So why would she try to cut me off? To me, that’s the ultimate hater! On a much lighter note, I had fun going to the Liberator store with Kandi and Phaedra. It was quite interesting and I got vibrator 101 tips from Kandi, haha! I enjoy hanging out with those two. They are real and a lot of fun.
