SNAKES, MONKEYS, AND RATS

MORNING TEA

I love Miss Lawrence. I can be open and honest and have a good kiki. I enjoyed bringing him on the trip. I wanted the girls to come together and have some quality time bonding and opening up about what our real issues are. That includes my issues I’ve had with Phaedra and Apollo.

Our first excursion was to a beautiful underground cave with natural springs. There were exotic animals, monkeys, and a giant snake. However, none of the women like snakes, myself included. Well… not that kind. Just jokes people… I’m here all night!

A SHAMAN HEALING

You never know how your blessings will come or from whom. The Shamans have been known to bless many women with children after their spiritual cleansing.  I brought the women who had been supportive of me in my endeavor to have a family. I excluded Phaedra who coldheartedly remarked about me having “scrambled eggs” and Porsha for consistently taunting me about the men in my life, which leads to a family. With that said, I now see that NeNe’s snide remarks made me regret inviting her. I’ve been more than generous with her, but I am too fed up with her to see any good in her. This was my honest attempt at revealing more of who I am and what my real struggles have been. I’m thankful that they all were able to share their stories on motherhood allowing us to understand each other more. It truly inspired me. I can say this, I underwent fibroid surgery early this year and it was very successful. Thanks to my amazing doctor and my many blessings, physically, I’m in amazing condition for pregnancy. I hope to share some great news soon!

BOXING APOLLO

All the women were invited to the lounge, but of course they were all late so Lawrence and I joined them. I did have an ulterior motive in hanging out with them and that was to get the truth out of Apollo. You catch a rat with peanut butter not salt.  Once they were relaxed, it was my moment. I wanted an admission of guilt, an apology, and a resolution from Apollo and I succeeded. As a result of me being non-threatening, Apollo admitted that he felt he could have slept with me yet I never offered him sex (“I can say how I feel you don’t have to offer.”)Apollo’s fictional stories about LA and anything else were retaliation for me making him look bad because I revealed his texts to me (“You took a jab, I took a jab regardless of whose head got knocked off.”)

I wanted closure and to move on. I can’t do that without a conversation. We have never had that and Phaedra deserves to know the truth as well. However, it was Phaedra who decided to go on a national platform and recite Apollo’s lies without ever speaking to me or fact-finding. So not only did he try to hurt me but she willingly participated.

With that said, I am guilty of one thing and that is responding to Apollo’s friendly texts. I have wholeheartedly apologized as it was inappropriate. Additionally, my poor choice opened the door for these types of people to drag me through the mud outside the prism of RHOA. But liars never win and karma is a bitch. Stay tuned for the conclusion next week.

 

Lastly, I really appreciate all the positive messages I’ve received from the fans that are rooting for me. I appreciate you and thank you for letting me know when you think I’m wrong, right, or not wrapped too tight… It’s all good. We’re all in this together.

“He who filches from my good name robs me of that which not enriches him but makes me poor indeed.” – William Shakespeare

Until next week,

NeNe Explains the Wig

NeNe Leakes dishes on the fans' reaction to her latest interview look. 

Being a busy business woman is no joke, but I love what I do and create! For over a year I worked tirelessly with my team creating The NeNe Leakes Collection clothing line for all women of all sizes. I joined forces with HSN to launch this fabulous collection, and I couldn't have partnered with a better company! As you could see, we started our launch at midnight, but what you may not have realized was that I was there for a 24 hour period that actually started at midnight. Not only did the cold shoulder tunic sell out, many of my pieces sold out within hours of the launch! I can't tell you how grateful I am for that. All I want to do is make every woman feel fabulous in the skin she's in while wearing my collection. Thank you to the entire team at HSN and Tiger J! I am proud to say, we are family! Thanks to all of you that purchased my collection and helped make it a success!


As a designer, you take risks that sometimes don't work! I think we all can agree the bob wig I wore in my interview didn't work. I could give you this whole spill about what actually happened that day, but I'd rather not! I will say this though: A wig comes off, so it's a good thing I am comfortable in the skin I am in. Why let little things like a wig or makeup define me? I'm one of those girls that lives by my own rules, which is why I am a force to be reckoned with. I'm proud of who I am and all that I've accomplished! I have discovered my true self, and I couldn't be happier, but I have a sense of humor and I must say some of the pictures I saw on social media of my hair were hilarious! My hubby and I fell out of the bed laughing at some of the stuff we saw!

P.S. Wearing that wig wasn't all bad, because the very next day I got a business call from a hair company wanting to do a wig line with me! Cha-Ching! #ByeWig.

Stay fierce, fabulous, and wear a wig if you want too, LOL!
