Ryan Murphy, My "Fairy Godmother"

NeNe explains how Ryan Murphy has changed her life.

Season 5 jumped right off with a bang, so let's go! I'm loving all the new intros, but the one that's really on fire is mine: "I have arrived and the spotlight is on me, honey!" LOL! It's good to be back and I know most of you have been wondering what's happening with all of us.

My life has just taken a whole new turn, and where do I start? With Gregg I guess. I was married to Gregg for 15 years, and he's the father of my child. A charmer and smooth talker he's always been. He and I have made mistakes along the way, but we’re having fun and I’m excited about where this could possibly go, so fingers crossed for me...

So you guys finally got a glimpse at the man I call my "fairy godmother," Mr. Ryan Murphy, the creator of Glee, American Horror Story, The New Normal, Nip/Tuck, etc. He's a great producer, director, writer, he's one of the biggest, most sought-after names in Hollywood, and he simply changed my life. Some of you caught me on Glee last season as Coach Roz, and I'm currently one of the stars of the new hit TV show The New Normal as Rocky. I'm so proud of that. As you could see, we’re not only doing business, we do dinner as well.


Kim visiting Kandi's house: I don't want to give too much away, and you guys have eyes and ears, so your eyes saw what mine saw and your ears heard what mine heard! What I will say is I've been saying these things to you guys for a while now, so you figure out what it is!Kenya Moore enters as the newest Housewife! Let's welcome her aboard. For those of you that have watched the show since Season 1, you probably caught this. Didn't it look like Kenya studied all the past seasons then sat in her interview and said something we all had said at some point? Now that seemed very contrived! Kenya saying she would kick a bitch’s ass at over 40 years old, really?!

Kenya visiting The Bailey Agency: I wish I could say something nice, but she was completely rude. And to say you are a public figure so you need "security"? We need to hear that resume again, because I didn't hear anything that said, "public figure"!
Catch me two nights a week right here on Bravo's The Real Housewives of Atlanta and NBC's The New Normal on Tuesday's at 9:30pm. Follow me on Twitter @neneleakes and visit neneleakescloset.com to purchase t-shirts, my book, etc.

Stay fierce and fabulous!
NeNe

Cynthia: "I Pray We Can Make Peace"

Cynthia Bailey dishes on the make up with NeNe Leakes as well as her runway walk at Fashion Week. 

Thanks for tuning in to another episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Let's jump right on in.


YOU HAVE TO GIVE RESPECT TO GET RESPECT
Once I had the opportunity to speak at the dinner table, my only issue was respect, or me feeling the lack thereof. I did not feel like the respect that I had for NeNe and her husband was being reciprocated. She has called my husband out of his name too many times to count, and still continues to do so. Until this day, I have never disrespected her husband. I believe in boundaries, and even in anger certain lines should never be crossed. There is an unspoken trust and confidentiality between friends regardless of the state of the relationship. If I felt like I could have called NeNe, and had my feelings and concerns met with an open mind and an open heart, I would have. However, we stopped communicating months before we filmed the reunion; therefore a one-on-one sit down wasn't an option. Honesty between friends should always be appreciated, especially when it's coming from a loving place. Friends applaud each other's triumphs, and check each other when they are wrong. As grown, successful, and professional women, I pray we can make peace through forgiveness of each other's faults, and can arrive at a true place of support and respect for each other. I am moving forward in grace.

 

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK
The only thing I love more than New York is New York Fashion Week! I was so excited to walk alongside two of my models from The Bailey Agency School of Fashion, Nisaa Pouncey and Chelsea Lee, in my longtime friend Kithe Brewster's Fashion show. The girls exceeded my expectations and gave me confirmation that my little school that I opened just four years ago was indeed making dreams come true! I was also asked by one of my favorite designers, Betsey Johnson, to walk in her show as well! As a woman who embraces her age, I was proud to represent the older and curvier woman during Fashion Week. Although it has always been the industry standard to use mostly younger, thinner models, I applaud designers like Betsey Johnson and Kithe Brewster for showing some "real women" on the runway as well. I hope that this is a trend, and in the future others designers follow suit. I was so excited to have Peter, Kenya, Kandi, Todd, and Noelle's dad, Leon, in New York to support me (and my big butt)!
