NeNe Leakes

NeNe shares her opinion on Porsha and Kordell's marriage.

on Mar 11, 20130

Sin city baby! This is where it all goes down! So we left Hollywood and headed to Vegas. A girls’ trip is just that -- girls hanging out, shopping, partying, and enjoying cocktails are definitely all in the mix. Pure innocent fun!

I arrived in Vegas around 10pm after a long day of work. I was told the plan was to head to a strip club, ride a bull, and have a sex toy party -- none of which I would normally do on a girls trip! I came on this trip, so I was willing to do whatever; as long as it didn’t involve doing drugs, having sex, or breaking the law, I was cool! So I got dressed and headed out on the town with the girls.

Once we were in the limo, Porsha said loud and clear that Kordell would NOT be happy if she went to a strip club and that he had already LET her go from Cali to LA! (Which is around the block I guess, LOL!) Now let me break it down to you this way -- I have been to strip clubs and worked in one when I was in my early twenties. Now I have moved on too much bigger and better things! I really like Porsha, and even feel like a big sister to her. If Porsha didn’t want to go to the strip club herself, that's fine! The message I think we all were trying to send to her was to use your own brain and let this be your decision. We’ve all been around her and heard her say things that sound like she's being controlled. Maybe Kordell feels the need to control her, because he knows what he's working with.

Just found out that the New Normal has been picked up by NBC again along with 1600 Penn.  Very happy for you.  You are quite BUSY  now.  So busy, that I doubt that you have time to read any of the comments on your blogs, but anyway Happy Happy for you on Glee, New Normal, RHOA, I Dream of Nene.

I am very happy for the personal growth and professional success Nene has achieved through the RHOA platform.

 

She is star of the show and the guiding force among the group of women.  I wish she and Greg and their family all the best.

I like you Nene sometimes, but you are lil too controlling on this show.  Sometimes you double talk too.  Now, I don't know if this is Hollywood changing your demeanor but you have to get a grip.  Quit treating Greg like he is an handbag and treat him like the real man he is.  Stop butting into people marriage, because you are not fit in that dept. to give advice.  Otherwise, you go girl!

NENE SAW THAT HE WAS CONTROLLING BECAUSE SHE HAS BEEN IN A  RELATIONSHIP LIKE THAT. SHE HAD CAME A LONG WITH FROM HER DAYS ON THE POLE AND THE WISDOM HAS TAUGHT HER A LOT. SHE HAS ZERO TOLERANCE  FOR BS.

Nene you act so fake! remember you came from nothing, and now you act like you have always been rich. You were mad that Kenya kicked out Porsha, but i do remember you not letting all the ladies come in you home because they were two hours late. You are no better! would not want you as a friend.

BRAVO NeNe, I applaud you for standing up for what is right! I'm glad you told Kenya about herself! She was truly wrong and you stood up for what is right! Kenya was clearly out to make a fool of Porsha and she got out witted by someone she called dumb! Kenya wanted to represent iconic women from days of old tell me how did Halle Berry fit in? She had Grace Jones, Tina Turner, Diana Ross, and Eartha Kitt! Halle Berry is not from that era and to make matters worst she said BAPPS! Thanks NeNe for standing up!!!!!!!

Nene I have to say that I am so disappointed in all you women this season. Not at anytime did I see any of you being friends with one another. I have watched the RHOAL from the start and I will watch the reunion but if there is another season I will not be watching. I know this is only a reality show but lets get real. You have came off as if this show is the NENE SHOW! and that if everyone doesnt play by your BLOOP rules they are not worth the air time. And I have to say that I have watched YOUR new show the new normal and I have yet to see you{maybe I fell to sleep} just not a fan of it. Good luck with what ever may come your way !

I Live for the video of you and your Glambaby, how sweet!!! You killed GraceJones costume. I hope you guys can rally around Porsha, what a blow. I can't wait till the reunion. Please watch Kim, she need ratings and now all of a sudden you guys make up. She still an opportunist, so watch your back! #1FAN

NeNe, how can you tell Kenya that she is wrong for kicking Porsha out of her party when in fact you wouldn't even allow the ladies into your home after a long flight from Atlanta when they showed up late to your dinner party.  Sound Familiar?  Pot calling the Kettle black!

Nene sorry to get off the subject for a minute, but I asked 10 of my hottest guy friends what they would prefer a donkey booty, or a stallion booty, they ALL said donkey booty!!!!! Where do you think the term badonkadonk came from?! Donkey....  Sorry I had to mention that.... Since you were so team Kray Kray!!!

Nene, my love, you are my favorite. I watched a marathon of season 1 and I totally understand now why you shut Kim down. She thought she could get farther on Sherees coat tails (where is Sheree now?) , she latched onto Kandi to get farther in her "singing career". (She cant sing). She totally disrespected you. Now that you are above them all in regards to success, here she comes again. You know her better than I do, but from what I have seen on the show, I would keep her at arms length.

 

I love how you tell it like it is. Sometimes I fall asleep when I'm watching, not because I'm bored, its medical (leukemia) and I have dreamed that you and I are BFF's. Its so funny! I laugh when I wake up and remember what I dreamed. I am glad you are there for Porsha, she needs a strong woman in her corner. I think she is lucky that dipshit is divorcing her. She is young, pretty and she will survive. After being controlled like that it destroys the self confidence, self esteem and self respect. (Yup, been there) She will find a man that she deserves and have a bunch of kids that will lovingly drive her crazy! Bad times never stay around long, they come and go. Always look to the future, do what you have to do to come out on top. Say your prayers in the morning and watch how your days will improve, little by little. I guess I should be blogging this to Porsha!  Ok, I'm done. :)

NeNe you were my favorite from the beginning and you still are. Stay true to yourself and God Bless you with much success and happiness with Greg one more time!

I personally feel that NeNe was great this season, because she is happy with what is going on in her life and that she is just on a few minutes in the few episodes she on this season. I also feel that NeNe and Kim outgrew the RHoATL and should move on to their other ventures. I don't blame NeNe for staying on the RHoATL because they are giving her whatever she wants to please her. If they Bravo/Andy realize NeNe was only showed a two or three minute appearance on a couple of episodes. I understand that for this season, but if NeNe can't make the RHoATL her first priority, then they should let her go. I am not buying that NeNe and Kim are back to being friends and I will not buy them coming back to RHoATL as friends. I will not watch that same old (same old) story. Bravo/Andy will do anything for ratings, but I will not watch that if it happens. RHoATL showed that the show can survive without NeNe if she chooses to leave.

Again, I like NeNe and Kim, but at this point I don't want to see the fake friendship between them. They would be friendly for two or three episodes then we are back to where it started. The first season was great then it went downhill from there. I was so tired of both of them and last season with them was over the top. I really thought NeNe was vicious and would have gotten physical with Kim if Kandi didn't get in between them. I decided to give RHoATL one more season and if they get that vicious again I would not continue to watch. I enjoyed the new addition to the show and feel that Kenya and her ways brought life back to RHoATL. I also liked Phaedra until she went to being total opposite of what she seemed to be. I didn't think she would allow somebody to make her stoop to such a low level. I loved Phaedra sense of humor and the faces she make, but when someone tells her something and confidence she should never use that against a person.

I really hope if Kim and NeNe are truly friendly that it will not be part of the RHoATL. If they got back together it was Bravo/Andy (for ratings) or NeNe/Kim (for money). I can't blame them, but I really hope I am not the only one that doesn’t want to watch the Kim and NeNe show on RHoATL. I must say NeNe made out like a bandit, she got one million for only a couple of minutes in a few episodes. Again, more power to NeNe and I wish her continued success in all her ventures.

I have been watching Bravo since inception and I am down to two Real Housewives (RHoBH and RHoATL). If Bravo brings back the duo (Kim and NeNe), I will not watch and I will be down to watching only RHoBH). My favorite two were RHoNJ and RHoATL. I gave RHoNJ a last chance and it reached that level and I will not watch this season. All Bravo/Andy is about is negative drama without a balance. I was fascinated by the family and friendship dynamic and Bravo/Andy took that away from the shows. All the RHs are about the drama and nothing else. Whenever there is a good moment it has to be with drama. Again, I have watch all the RH since inception and last season was it for all but RHoATL and RHoBH. This was the last chance season for both of them and I liked the new people Bravo/Andy added to the cast. Now that they are all the same with the drama, I am limiting myself to two and I will not be surprised if I discontinue watching those two.

Let the record show.... "I love me some Ne Ne!"    I know that some think you are a mean girl, some think you are this and some think you are that.   Well, it's like this... I am not in a position to judge anyone and what they are like, but I will say that I am a really big fan of yours!  I think you are at your best when you are happy and for that... you must be grateful.   I think you are very attractive and classy.   Gregg is all up in it honey!  He ain't nobody's fool!   I am glad that you two are together.  You make an awesome couple with the GREAT TEETH!!!

NeNe you are one of my favorite cast members.(For Real) However, your verbal observation may have opened up a can of worms regarding the Stewart"s marriage. Do you feel a little resposible for the way in which Kordell and Porscha's marriage is ending? Pointing out whats wrong in other people's relationships are great for ratings obviously. But, how do you feel about the outcome of your comments when someone gets hurt?

                                                                 Nene spoke the truth!

Remember it is "her opinion".

 

Porsha this is a life's lesson for you. First of all, you have allowed yourself to play the roles that you believe others want to see you in.  Your very pretty looks have become a crutch that you lean on.  I think you should have studied harder as a little girl...pretty is not enough in this world.  Take a look at the other ladies on the show.  Although, they are not perfect, they have studied in school, and in life's experiences.  

 

Prancing around in dresses that "Cordell" would love and having others sit back and admire you shows no class at all.  It speaks of Black Barbie and emptiness...not substance.

 

God ain't so fond of pretty.  Stop trying to be a trophy wife.  Try to be a strong woman.  

 

As for Cordell, he is not right for anyone.  I was disgusted by his presence on this show. The producers and Nene had to know this hammerhead was going to be a ratings bonanza.  And sometimes, where there is smoke, there is fire.  The gay rumors just might be true.  And that does not make him a bad person, but deception is mean, manipulative, calculated and altogether wrong.  God is sending you a message.

 

I hold you both responsible for not being true role models as adults, wealthy individuals or a happy married couple.  You just look pretty (not smart). He can throw a football (not smart).  

 

I wish you well, but now is the time for you to invest in what your granddad's legacy is more focused on.  Pick up a damn book!

 

Nene stop saying the B word.

Thank you for speaking up and standing up for what is right concerning Kenya being mean spirited toward Porsha. As a black woman I needed to see us united against inappropriate behavior among us and this will help Kenya realize you are welcome as long as you do what is right and if you do not there are consequences. Even the bible teaches, you first talk the to person, then bring counsel to them, then if she continues to allienate her.

I think nene is just a mean girl.  She has been gifted with many blessings and still has to speak negatively about almost everyone.  What business is anyone else's marraige to her.  She needs to take care of her own first.  She's just mean.

Even when people are nice to you, if they treat others shady they don't have good character.

nene I agree you on some of what you say but if you don't read God's word and don't understand it then don't speak on it, you live a worldly life, porsha was trying to be Godly and respect her marriage, but just like you her husband don't understand the  word of God either, so instead of giving all those worldly comments, I just know you know how to pray her strength because you been in her shoes, and congrads on your success!!!!!!

What I question is this:  It is NOT Porsha who is filing for their divorce, it is Cordel.  Did he get upset with Porshe because for once in their marriage she spoke up to him?  Is he mad at her, because he thinks she defied him?  Is he mad because she isn't sure she is ready to buckle down and have his baby right now?  She appears to be a very loving, supportive, and caring wife.  She appears to love him with all of her Heart.  She appears to let him lead, and decide their fate.  She appears to be happy with him?  She does seem like she wants friends, but what woman doesn't?  She is trying to fit in with these Housewives, which is hard to do, because they ALL have their careers, and are doing something productive with their lives, but she's doing o.k.  I really want to know from Cordel's own mouth, why he wants to let this little lady go.

wootie2610
wootie2610

I watch Atlanta Housewives, never miss a show.  I find Cordel a little much.  He seems to be over protective, more so than controlling to me.  Every time she tells him about things that happen between her and the girls, that she didn't like, he tells her to check them.  Cordel just wants her to stand up for herself.  But, what I don't agree with is his view on what a young wife and mother should be.  There is NO reason why Porsha shouldn't be able to have a baby, oversee her Charity projects and be his wife.  She was NOT wrong for asking for a little assistance with a new baby.  There is NOTHING wrong with having a nanny, just for now at least.  A young baby is overwhelming.  Porsha would have to make many sacrifices to be a good mother, and many adjustments.  She is such a niave little girl, I am sure she would never neglect her wifely duties to her husband.  We should NOT come down hard on NeNe, she is there and sees what goes on; she is only speaking her opinion, and saying the same things the other ladies are saying.  We are on the outside looking in, they are there.  Even if Cordel is controlling to Porsha, did you guys forget that, Cordel is the one filing for the divorce.  What's up with that?  Maybe NeNe can tell us...............................

 Them witches were three hours late to NeNe's party given in their honor.  NeNe was right to kick their asses out.  They were totally disrespectful.  NeNe even told them not to come when she spoke to Cynthia on the phone.  Cynthia should have had the limo turn around and gone got themselves something to eat which is what they ended up doing anyway.

 @belleLA You can no more blame NeNe for their marriage failing then you can blame a bird for shitting on you! Get real! What NeNe did was give good solid insight! NeNe is far from having low self esteem and has more important things to do then be preoccupied with couple drama. Porsha was a self described trophy wife who got a little too big for her husbands britches. Their problems are their own and they need to own them. Putting a spot light on whatever is already lit does not bring it to light!

@Lorrij implying in any way that Nene's comments caused a breakdown on Porsha and Cordell's marriage is like Faye's ratchet airhead trying to accuse poor Brandi for breaking up Adrienne and Paul's marriage. On what planet do you guys live on? How weak could you be to allow one woman's opinion to break you up? A marriage is a three-cord bond (if its based on spiritual), no man should be that strong to put you assunder. I hope for your sake you have your own mind and know how to manage your relationships. Ripping off a page from Nene's book, it's like this chile': a marriage not built on a solid foundation, is a fragile as can be, to the point that words of an outside observer is strong enough to crumble it as you are suggesting. Nene said what needed to be said, and now it seems she's right. If their divorce was in any way perpetuated by the women's observations, then shouldnt be together. Porsha needs to get a life of her own and move on with it, she will attract the right man who respects her.

 @Lorrij   NeNe saying he's controlling is NOT the reason why they are getting the divorce.  Porsha  herself said she was thinking of divorcing him but decided to work on their marriage after he made false promises.  The fact that he treats her like a child with no mind of her own, and the fact that Porsha decide that isn't wasn't working for her anymore, is the reason they are getting a divorce.  I think it's unfair to even  think should feel responsible for the failure of Kordell's and Porsha's marriage.  Porsha, for as dingy as she comes across, was quite adamant about being okay with the routine her marriage was taking at the time of the incident.  I've heard on a couple interviews her say (Porsha) she knew they( the RHOA girls) were coming from a good place, even if she didn't like the delivery.   

 

No one is responsible but Kordell and Porsha.  And the fact they are divorcing actually vindicates what the girls were saying. He couldn't control her so he is moving on to someone he can.

 It wasn't her charity projects he was concerned about, it was her wanting to continue to be on that show.  Remember she was doing all those charity projects and taking care of the house, his son, having fun with friends BEFORE THE SHOW.  He just didn't want the addition of a mind insulting reality show  for his wife.

 @Missykaye True that NeNe is not responsible for the crack that was already there.  NeNe did what any confident woman might do for a younger friend in a similar situation.  Tell that young girl to love her man, but not to sacrifice herself and her dreams for that man.  To talk to that man and discuss what was important and work on goals together.  NeNe said, if that man loves you, he'll come around and support you like you support him.

That was excellent advice.  Too many young women think they must become everything their husbands want them to be at all costs.  They try to be someone else, giving up their dreams, packing away any wants and desires of their own to please their husband.  Over time, they don't become happier in life and love their spouse more, but rather they become bitter and end up resenting their mate for stifling the person they really are and crushing their spirit.  NeNe said you become who your husband wants you to be, by nourishing who you both want to be.

NeNe only advised Porsha to talk to Kordell about the things Porsha wanted & needed that would make her life fulfilling.

First and foremost, NeNe is still one of my absolute favorite cast member. Although pointing out flaws in other cast members' relationships are obviously good for ratings it is not necessary. NeNe used to have marital issues too. People who live in glass houses should not be throwing any stones.
