Episode 2 went off with a bang! L.A. Pride: I was invited to be apart of Gay Pride to promote my new show The New Normal. The love and support I received was so overwhelming it brought me to tears! I simply love my gays!
There are a few ladies in this mix that voice their opinions and speak negative of others, but if you speak negatively of them, oh it's a problem! The Ladies Of Success Event was my party that I asked Cynthia to host for me. Cynthia wanted to celebrate my success, but I chose to celebrate all women. I feel like great things have happened for me, so why not invite them all? I've always enjoyed getting my girlfriends together but you can never have an event with these ladies and not have some negativity hunni -- that's a given with this group. Nonetheless the event was beautiful and successful just like I wanted. For those that spoke negatively before, during, and after the event meant nothing to me! I have come full circle and I can't tell you how happy I feel. I can honestly say, I'm on a high, and it really feels good. Anything negative any of these girls have to say just doesn't faze me. Kim's intentions from the word go are never good! Kim and Sweetie are rude, negative, sad on the inside, and pretend to be happy on the outside , people that need to go sit down somewhere and find some happiness. They look like complete fools going places with their nose turned up being negative and always, always, always have an excuse. I extended the olive branch, and I'm moving on. No matter what people have said, I've always stayed true to me.
The negative things Kandi said before coming to my event: people who are intimidated by my future always bring up my past, but I never focus on who is against me because I have sooooo many people that are for me. If I stopped and focused on the negative, I could not be where I am today! I'm a tough girl, and I can take when shots are fired at me, but you better be able to take what I shoot back! Oh, here's a note for you Kandi: instead of being negative towards me, the person you really need to check has checked you so many times in so many ways even while standing in your house, but you can't see that right? It's just me, right? Righttttttt!
Until next time, stay fierce and fabulous!

Nene you have really grown. I am proud of you, however I think that you and Khandi can have agreat relationship. when I look at all the girls she is so true to heart. Remember the statement " a dog that brings a bone caries a bone " you got other dogs around you and it ain't Khandi like you may think. At least she will admit what she has said. It is time for you and her to move on. Forget about Kim she has some deep issues.
Nene I have to say that initially I thought you were a bit much, but I could see the fight in you to do well and mean well. You have changed so much this season and are glowing in sucess, beauty and love. Yes I love the fact that you and your husband is dating....falling in love all over again. You have taken the high road. But I wish you would look a little closer and see that Kandi if no one else is the real just like you. I think if given a chance you guys would be closer than u and cynthia. Because although I love Cynthia I think Kandi is more true to never changing. You have come so far, go a step farther and see that Kandi and you are successful beautiful women who are go getters. But yes, Im loving you Nene, you the bomb. But if you don't want no mess....stay away from Kenya. She messy and grimy.
At first I was all for Nene making up with Kim but I think Nene needs to leave that friendship in the past. Kim is a user and she's not going to change.
Nene, I totally agree with you. I don't know why Kandi has this animosity towards you. Kim says and does so much sh*t against her but yet Kim's her bff. She always looks so mortally wounded when Kim disses her but she keeps accepting her "friendship." I don't get it at all.
Nene...You, Kim and Kandi need to make up...You were very close to Kim and she needs your friendship now...You and Kandi are the Only 2 women who to me really care about Kim and keep her straight as friends really do...Congrats on your success...Keep on keeping things Real with you 2 Real Friends...Yes, Kandi has more money than anyone from the 1990s, so that is cool, but I really do wish you 3 would make up and take control over this fakey show....LOL
NeNe in NYC that's my town and I found it so cute of you to not want to eat a hotdog. If it's the green umbrellas from the Parks Dept. the hot dogs are ok, But if not beware. I'm your #1 fan and Cynthia's
I just have to say how entertaining it is to watch you at this stage of your career and your life. I'm watching the lunch with Cynthia scene and I'm cracking up. You're really funny and fun to watch. And you've shown you can be interesting and engaging without being loud and abrasive. Kudos to you, Nene. Oh, and I can't wait for kim to leave this show (this appears to be the consensus). Did she quit? Was she fired? Seriously, who cares? Kim, time for you to get to stepping.
Why were you acting like a tourist in NYC pretending that you never have been in the subway or had a hot dog? Your friend had to show you the town when you were born in Queens NY? WHAT?? What a phony you are..
Nene... don't worry about the HATERS!!!!! They are jealous because you are the Break Out Star!!!! You are MRS. HOUSE WIVE HERSELF!!!! Keep doing you, being you, but never forget the beginnings.
I'm happy Nene's got her chance at acting but why the trailer crack about Kim. Kim waited 2 hours for the guest of honor before she left. She knew Nene was not sincere & she was right the trailer crack was before the party. I wonder how long your career will last the first time you go loco mad on a fellow actor, director, writer etc. With your track record even on Apprentice, bound to happen.
I have much respect for you and Greg, concerning your son's feelings and well being. So many parents use their children to get the upper hand in a split. I applaud you both for keeping it civil and keeping your child's interest at the for front.
You said Kim/Sweetie are" rude, negative and sad on the inside," I'd like to add one more thing...Toxic!!! Kim has been truly blessed meeting her husband. Has 4 beautiful children and a good man. She has not counted her blessing or she wouldn't have ran Kandi's new home down and neighborhood. Can you say Narcissist...truly sad situation.
If it's true she has a new show on Bravo, I can tell you ,one viewer who has no interest in watching that "train-wreck," I just can't and won't do it.
So true NeNe... the way Kim checked Kandi in her house, ABOUT HER HOUSE... that wasn't cool. Especially from someone getting evicted. Kim needs a job. She got the work ethic of garden gnome. Beep boop!
I, Allan Greggs, am loving the New Normal. Ms. NeNe, you are awesome. Keep up the good work, lady.........
Love from Chicago
You crack me up with your new persona. Just be yourself; the old Nene was what made people gravitate toward you. And please stop saying that you got your role in Glee because Ryan Murphy saw you on Celebrity Apprentice; we all know that RH of Atlanta is your claim to fame, and Ryan wouldn't have cast you on Glee if it wasn't for your role on RH of Atlanta.
I really like Nene Leakes!! I like Phaedra as well. But I LOVE NE-MARLO!! Marlo kept it real. Fashionista for sure! Funny and fabulous. She and nene were a dynamic duo!! KZ is expired. Get rid of that town clown and her circus.
Go NeNe. You do you girl. I got your drift about Kandi being checked and blatantly disrespected by Kim and Ugmo (Sweetie). I've said it before and I'll say it again, Kandi is a pushover nothing more. I lost ALL respect for her. Wish her luck though.
bagthelady Good we dont want you to watch anymore. While your at it u could stop blogging too.
#cosign Kandi needs to allow you to change and get pass the drama with your castmates and make peace and stop bringing up what you did yesterday. So what, everyday is a new day to do better. She needs to listen to her song she made for Kim again and "FlyAbove Her own Drama" she got with Kim.
PS NeNe stop being fake with people be yourself, i notice you were being fake with those white kids on the subway in NYC they were looking up to you and trying to be real and you threw them as yall like to say much shade hunny
@Truthtold I don't know, I think she was so surprised that people were nice down there, that her "fake" smile was really one of OMG, they are not all mass murderers down here! I thought she seemed genuine by the time she left. She did engage them, asked them about themselves, and gave encouragement. Regardless if it was fake, which I don't think it was, that gave those kids a boost to go follow their dreams. Nene, kudos on that one. And on being a good example by following your own dreams.
I like you NeNe cuz you don't sugar coat anything and I like that. Like you were a striper when you were young and made money out of it. on the Jersey hw they've made it such a big deal trying to prove that Malissa was a striper, she says no but if she was so what ? I don't see anything wrong with it if you needed to work hey you do what you have to do
Because Melissa made such a big deal about it like she didn't want her husband to know. No one cares if she stripped but she was sooooooo offended. Gimme a break. She gotz skeletons for sure and Juicy probably could tell you an earful.
@SoOverIt @xxxemxxx Being as outspoken as he is, if juicey had something to say, he would have said it. And as irrelevant as this convo may be to this blog, I think we heard from joe, that he met M at that very gents bar. So stripping or not, he would already know her state of dress, or undress. Just saying.
TheReal1 Auntkitty555 I COULDNT AGREE MORE WITH YOU DEAR, APPARENTLY HERE WHEN YOU POST ANYTHING NICE ABOUT NENE YOUR LOOKING FOR A BFF,. I REALIZED THERE'S TOO MUCH BASELESS BITTERNESS With SOME PEOPLE HERE, ITS LIKE THEY SWALLOWED A FROG, I DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW THEY PERCEIVE THESE SHOWS, YOU WATCH TO EITHER LIKE OR NOT, WHEN YOU LIKE THEM YOU EXPRESS IT, WHEN YOU DON'T YOU DON'T GO AHEAD POST NEGATIVELY ACTUALLY BITTERLY,
ITS VERY SIMPLE, IF YOU DON'T LIKE NENE THEN WHY NOT POST ON THE BLOGS FOR OTHER RHOA CASTMENTS. that you really like.its one thing to advise or express your opinion, but its another to hate.
On a brighter note: Nene inspires me, she is a fighter, she knows what she wants and hating her doesn't hold her back.That is how we should reach our aspirations.WE go on and stop at nothing. However most people are too afraid to reach their goals because of the hardships that they could meet .
LFraise TheReal1 Auntkitty555
honey, your allowed to post all opinions here. I don't think anyone should be bitter on anything but if they have a comment that they feel like posting, just let them b/c at then end of the day we can only control our own actions!
Your so nice posting your nasty comments. I'm sure u have never done anything wrong or made any bad choices in your life. HUMHHHHH!
@Auntkitty555 What a rotten thing to write. One thing I appreciate about bravo is that they give us an overview of where these women came from. Nene had hard knocks, like most of them did, and her personality has compensated in certain ways. IMHO Much better than becoming an alcoholic or drug addict. So she is high on her own success ? Let her have it . It hurts no one.
Until Kim and Kandi learn the true meaning of forgiveness and move towards friendship, they will remain in the same place without growth... Kandi thinks because of you comments about all the twitter people being at her event and you not stopping directly to say hello, you were lite
way hating on her... It was her event, why couldn't she come over and say hello to her cast mates??? NeNe you did come for support her Kandi Coated Night, doesn't that mean anything??? Kandi did sound off her reason to attend Cynthia's event was because of who she is, not what you've become, a woman of power...
NeNe you are fierce and fabulous!!!
I'm sorry, but I'm not a Nene fan because the fake accent and voice is annoying. To change your speech when you're around certain people is fake and unreal. When you were on the subway and speaking to those young aspiring actors and actresses I couldn't stand to hear you speak, because it was pure fake (but the accent you used on the first season of RHOA was the real you). Also, I agree with the other viewers on your tardiness for a party to honor your accomplishments. Why would you arrive a whopping 2 hours late? That is so insensitive of your guests and their time. While I don't care for Kim, I think she had every right to leave the party after waiting that length of time. I pray that you will stop trying so hard to speak with a fake accent. Am I saying you shouldn't speak intelligently, no A&T's not what I'm saying, but based on your sons accents and family members they've interviewed, the accent you're putting out there is phony. I think even more people would respect you if you would just stop with the fake accent.
In past seasons I was not a fan of Nene but I have seen some growth this season. I seen your comment and just had to say that some people can't help that their voice changes around those with different voices. I have noticed mine does this too. When I am around Spanish-speaking people my voice has a similar sound and when I go to see my family in another state my voice conforms to how they speak, involuntarily. So she may not be able to help that.
Nene you have been my fav from day one!! I don't believe you have changed at all! You have grown as a person, and adjusted the way you react to your haters, but all in all, you have always stayed true to who you are! Congrats on all the good things that have come your way!
wow!!!! straykt tihihihihihi plz don't make me laugh in greeks and hebrew. seeing the beautiful side of @Nene isnt tryna look for a bff, but of course you can't understand that. seeing positivity in an issue like this is something most of us can enver achieve, Revernace doesnt come easy.
It's sad that you've led such a sheltered ife; but there are all kinds of wonderful places and adventures to live. BUT-you will not be able to enjoy those experiences with a narrow mind. Everything and everyone is negative, hating uncomfortable. It's like you need to live in a bubble.
@ESinAZ I think that bubble is called country girl. Maybe I'm wrong, but NYC isn't for everyone.
Nene you are such an inspiration and continue to be yourself ! Until those b!!!!!s are on the cover of Ebony...PLEASE ...not even on the same radar as you .
wallydawn well finnaly someone is speaking my language like i said before, all those hating on Nene noe is on the COVER OF EBONY!!!!! @Wallydawn i couldnt agree more with you
i love Miss Nene one thing is that she has been the same scene day one keep doing your thing cus no one does it like you baby and i love how your trying to keep the peace this season but let me tell you this if they were not talking about you, you would have had to pay for publicity and they did it for free no charge so tell them thank you and go cash your trump check lol.......
Yes, I agree w/other Viewers........a real friend & guest of honor doesn't show-up 2-hours late to an event being hosted in their honor......that's just ghetto, rude, & unflattering!!!! A gracious honoree would have arrived early in time to greet each & everyone of her guest & thank them for coming-out to support her!!!
Nene......... I'm happy for your success & that you have joined the ranks of women who are gainfully employed, but you seem way too impressed w/yourself & it's annoying to watch!!! All I can say is that you can learn a great deal from Cynthia about sophistication, class, culture, & humility.....she is what I would consider a true friend who has your best interest!!!
Honey......please do yourself a favor & ditch Greg once & for all!!!!! It is so annoying to watch him turn-on that fake sugga-daddy charm of his for the cameras & to get in your pocketbook & ride your coat-tails on the Hollywood scene!!! I used to have respect for the man when you 2 were married & respectful & supportive of each another, but this fake "bull-s--t" that he is dishing out is just disgusting to watch!!!!
Funny how you say it doesn't phase you but you dedicate the entire blog to talking about it. You showed up to your own event two hours late. I would have left too. I'm tired of hearing about how everyone is jealous of you, hating on you, blah bla blah. You need constant validation which is a sign of a person with low self confidence. I don't ever see you giving props to other women who are doing well. It's all about you. Annoying to watch.
Nene, you are loved, what Kim did was wrong but understandable. Your last meeting was fueled with anger and angry words on tour bus. I said it was jealousy and you were not in a good place, I can understand Kim shying away from you. At least she came, waited and she left no shock and surprise, she waited for over an hour for you and you arrived late to your event. if you wanted to speak with Kim you should have did this outside the event. Nene you were wrong and you need to correct this properly. Kim did what she had to do, some people can take so much and Kim has had enough! Can't be mad at her!!! She is in a peaceful place; however, Kim has a love hate issue with Kandi and you know that's Kims issue.
Nene continue success and we love you!!!!!
You're a powerful woman, and although you ain't always right, I'll give it to you, your learning to chew your cheek and bite your tongue sometimes. Baby steps, but on your way to wisdom. It's called, "let them dig their own graves" . Side note, I never could have handled those steps to the subway in those heels. No way no how. I'd have taken them off and gone barefoot before I tried! Kudos.
