NeNe Leakes

NeNe shares her side of the confrontation with Kenya.

on Nov 4, 20130

The Housewives of Atlanta are back! For those of you who know me, I don't like to give long blogs or long speeches. I like to hit the points and move on, so here goes! 

The episode definitely delivered the action you guys like to see! As many of you know, Gregg and I have remarried. We had a beautiful ceremony filled with love, tears, happiness, and joy. If you have ever been a bride, then you know the high stress involved to plan and deliver a dream wedding. My wedding was no exception. I would go so far as to say mine was even more stressful, because I was getting married on TV and the world was invited to attend.

I invited family, friends, business associates, and some people out of respect! Kenya fit in the respect category, because I didn't know her well, but we were on the show together. Now whether she attended or not wasn’t important to me, but out of respect, I thought she would at least respond to me (and not on Twitter)! She responded on Twitter by saying congrats to us, which showed me she wanted the world to know she was invited and also wanted them to know she didn't attend. The motives people have are sometimes crystal clear! Remember I told you "motives"…we will revisit this again later in the season! Wink wink.            

The Bailey Agency Opening: Yeah, my girl Cynthia is moving on to a bigger and better location! Just to bring you up to speed, Gregg and I had been married two weeks when Cynthia held her event. As you saw, Kenya visited with Cynthia and told her she thought her "friends" would have reached out to her during her time of eviction (referring to me, Kandi, and Cynthia). Foolishness! Now you need to practice what you preach, Miss Kenya. Do onto others as you would have them do onto you! I already told you Kenya didn't reach out to me.

I am so glad you are keeping it real with Kenya. Why in the world would she text a married man with such notions. I was shocked to say the least. You girls were right to put her to task on what she said about Phaedra's husband. It was big of you to stand by Phaedra on that as well. What is wrong with Kenya? ... And when you called her out on her crocodile tears I had to laugh. Too funny. She can not get away with that foolishness. Kenya needs to grow up.

Ne-Ne you and Kandi are my 2 favorite housewives, don't get me wrong I like the other women as well except for Kenya.Kenya is all about self she think she's the only one everyone should focus on.What I'm saying she wants all the attention.She needs to be replaced,I don't even know how she deserved to even be on this season anyway from what she did last season.Paying a man to be your boyfriend.Now you know she missing some screws.But Ne-Ne your wedding was awesome, beautiful.You didn't need a scare crow (Kenya) for your wedding lmao.

NeNe you have always in my eyes commanded respect, and tried to "keep it classy".  Kenya is so desparate for the attention of an A-List sista, (you)...Keep leavin "gone with the wind", in the wind

Your union makes for good tv - that's all.  I am shocked at the conversations for 2 such beautiful and talented women. I feel like I am watching Rupaul's drag race (which I love), but that's supposed to be about men competing for the spotlight. Both of you are women. Why so much drama? Kenya needs a hug and you need to stay away from the drama and give the girls on the show a heartfelt  thank you (like you did Kim).  Stop announcing how special you are. We see it, but there is always room for other people to shine too.  Not everything is about diamonds, clothes and money. Stay with Gregg and love him. He is trying  so hard to let you know that it is about the two of you and not just Nene (the brand).

WOW NeNe.....I first have to congratulate you on having one of the most beautiful weddings ever! I've seen MANY beautiful brides, which I have commended and complimented on, but you LITERALLY took the cake! Regardless of the many ugly comments of the cost, this has nothing to do with the happiness and joy that it brought to you and Gregg, as you portrayed your love to one another in front of the many, many viewers who joined and witnessed your proclaimed endearness for one another. Believe me, if I were ever to remarry (NOT) I would spare no expense either! As in your case, it would have to be mighty special for sure! I guess there are just some folks that cannot fathom, that to be given such a wonderful chance at renewing a love that was so obviously deserved with great thought, and sharing this celebration of a lifetime,  just plain don't get it! With that said, (and hoefully understood) I wish you both a LIFETIME of happiness, love, honesty and trust, through RICH and through RICH (LOVED THAT!) with your hearts joined as one. Your love will SURELY get you through and I could truly not be happier for you.

 

As for Kenya, don't sweat the small stuff Nene. She's not worth any amount of twirling she could do, even as she falls on her face. You showed her how a true LADY should have been taught a long time ago, by NOT giving her the reaction she was looking for! I honesly don't believe she would appreciate you tryig to make up HER guest list. I mean, really, NOBODY would show up! I guess when things didn't go her way of having just those that SHE liked at YOUR wedding, that was like a huge slap on her face, so pulling at your ear for you to hear her was suppose to make it all okay? Then to keep following you, blabbering away (as you did with such class) was just the topping on the cake! My mouth literally fell open with disbelief! You were WONDERFUL Nene, and I couldn't have been more proud of you than I was at that very moment. I love you for not "losing" it and showing her just who's day i was. I just hate that she will stil be on BRAVO, but hopefully they will have a change of heart.

 

I so look forward to watching you with your growig success as they come forward to reward you over & over. YES, YOU HAVE COME A LONG, LONG WAY BABY! Much love to you, Gregg and your wonderful family ,in God's Speed! OXOX

Glad you girls are back, well most of you, I could do without Kenya. She acts like no one should speak to Walter. That's just stupid. The men all seem to like him. Their breaking up has nothing to do with your wedding guests,etc. She needs to get over herself. She acts like ll you girls have Ben best friends for years and you all are just being so disloyal to speak to him. It's not high school. Wish Bravo would've let her o.

I like NeNe, In the begining NeNe was opinionated, and rough and loud. However, she has weathered many storms. I understand her, she was alot like me. my mother (if you can her that) threw me out of  the house at 9/12 years old. What don't you, will make you strong. NeNe has worked hard to get where she is. People like that you look through not at. Why is Kenya on the House Wives anyway, she doesnt have a husband!!

Why is Kenya on the cast this seasons anyway.  She is so thirsty

cwp801
cwp801

walking away from her was the right thing to do!  She's a crazy self absorbed has-been that isn't worth any of you girls time!  She acts soooo bipolar and has serious problems.  The best advice any of you can give to Kenya is to go seek professional help asap!  We are all so sick of her drama and the way she constantly brings the show down!  Never will ANYONE forget the episode where Kenya said Phaedra's husband was so fine and acted like a cat in heat over him, and she is soooo disgusting and does not deserve to be on the show!  She fabricated the whole relationship with walter to try to become one of the 'housewives" and everyone knows that!  Then to try and make it like he is gay is indespicable!  She is jealous of everyone of you and ruins the whole show!  NeNe speak up and get her fake azz tail off of there and let her twirl around some where other than on this show!

Congrats to you and Greg and many happy years together!

 Ne Ne you acted with grace and class handling Kenya and with strength which I think one needs all of those things with Kenya since she can be like a broken record on a subject. I couldnt believe she followed you and even grabbed at you and Peter, she touched your ear too-she needs to realize personal boundaries as I do believe you said to her...geesh she needs to just relax. She makes herself look horrible by harping on the same old story...WALTER...Thank God he was not engaged to her or married to her if she is like this just from dating him what would she have been like if it had been even more serious??? I think she just is starving for any type of attention and is the type that will do whatever and say whatever to get it, you were funny too with she needs a new line other then Gone with the Wind Fab. lol lol. Congrats again!

You are right. Kenya needs to get over this man Walter.  You can invite anyone you want to your events.  If Kenya does not come so what.  Kenya get a life other then NeNe.

Nene you are by far my fav!! Kenya is a stage 5 delusional wannabe clinger on!! How dare her speak to NeNe Leakes that way??!! does she not know who the f**k she is talking to? Obviously not! I really don't know if I can take another season of her shananagens? At this point I wish she would twirl her a$$ right off the stage exit right! Don't let the door hit ya where the good lord split ya! On a positive note your wedding was an extravaganza! You looked gorgeous! Your greast had a great time! Gregg is one smooth dude! and he's funny! You too are definitely a a good fit... Looking forward to the rest of the season! I have a feeling this season is gonna be off the hizzy??!!!!

I'm still upset over the New Normal but God has bigger plans for you yet. I know you're known for being over the top and it's one of the reasons we love you . But, I would love to see you humble yourself a tad bit. You treated your "bridesmaids "like slaves! And it drives me crazy when you say "bridemaid" or " Gregg kids" he has more than one so it's Gregg's kids' just like you had nine bridesmaids. I still love you though. I hope you and Marlo work it out because I love you guys together!!! As for Kenya, well done!!!! You broke it down period!!as for your little lap dig Cynthia, I would watch her!! She will yes you to death and that's not a true friend! That's riding your coat tail! She is two faced and can not be trusted. Believe me! Diana loves you but she is jealous but I feel she wish you happiness. She would like some too greenbacks too though! Nothing wrong with that! ;) Please be careful when you call someone a friend. All I could really see were associates at your wedding! Keep it real girl! #teamneneforever!

Your wedding was truly amazing. You handled yourself with such class when Kenya confronted you. You told her exactly what she needed to hear. Its a shame she doesn't realize how ridiculous she looks. She is about as "fabulous" as a rock.

Nene, I LOVED your wedding!! It was absolutely beautiful!! As for the "want to be" Kenya, you showed so much class by not giving in to her antics. She is just so pathetic that it is laughable! I know it is good for Bravo because she causes so much drama on the show, but I think all of us that watch the show would celebrate if she was gone! Of coarse she needs it because it's her only source of income, still have yet to see any of her so called accomplishments, you know being a famous actress and all....Sorry about The New Normal, but something else will come along for you, Hollywood needs you!!!! Love you, and wish you and Gregg, and all your family the best. P.S. loved the interaction between you and Kim, it was so sweet.....

''Nene & ''Gregg I loved watching ur Show & the Wedding was 'FABULOUS! Ms.Wind is trying to hard to push ur buttons.I'm glad u set her straight,Walter is a family friend & her imput didn't matter who u invited. I'm w/ Cynthia she should be over him.He clearly is thru w/ her.Kray-kray likes the spotlight, she wants ur spot that's why she's gonna try 'Irk ur 'Nerves''till u have to '[Put the Paws On].

Yea you didn't react because someone civilized told you to stop acting a donkey, or back to the pole for NeNe, and I'm talking about the pole in last seasons episode....

I love you Nene!  Don't ever stop being you!  Kenya was wrong to confront you there at that event and for questioning why you invited Walter.  She's just trying to start the same old crap up again.  Her "eviction" wasn't even news.  I heard about your wedding, Porscha's divorce and Kim's pregnancy.  Kenya who, what?  People are evicted everyday and manage to get by with little or no help from anyone.  And people have their own stuff going on in their lives to deal with.  I don't question my friends on why they haven't reached out to me, when I can reach out to them too, because I have a lot going on in my life right now to deal with.  I know they are there for me should I need them.  And visa versa.  Heck, I was even the matron of honor in a friends wedding last year after the groom and myself had a huge blow out, cursing each other out, etc. just two weeks before the wedding.  I just stood there in my spot and smiled on her big day, because I was there for her, not him.  Sometimes you have to take the high road.  And yes, things are now better between all of us.  True friendships will prevail.  Glad you took the high road and walked away from Kenya, even though she was still trying to provoke you.  You are the better woman!

NeNe, You are one class act & have come along way, If Kenya would of grabbed my ear, I would of punched her in her face!!  Sorry, she does not have the right to touch you!!  Love  xxx

NeNee I give you credit for not slapping Kenya for pulling your ear/earrings.  Kenya was disrespectful on who you can and can not invite to the wedding. Greg had the rights to have his friends at the Wedding even if it was Walter or not. Plus Kenya should R.S.V.P  to the wedding not on "twitter".    Did Kenya forget you back her in the last season being a friend to her when the other ladies closed the door in her face.  This season going to be fun to watch I hope.

I don't even understand why she is even on the program, she is not a mother or a housewife.  Give me a break, BRAVO must be desperate for who they put on their programs.

Amen Nene, I was very proud of you when you walked away. Don't let them drag you down to their level, you don't need it. We know and appreciate the strong woman that you are and this just added another gem to your crown. Stay fabulous.

you did the same thing. now that you feel you have made it and you are queen bee, you are walking away, you didn't walk away not so long ago. please remember where you came from. I think it was all publicity anyway with this remarry business and I did not watch the show. too much foolishness.....

Nene  I loved your wedding I could not take my eyes off..and when your wedding party was announced in such a hip hop, get-down, way I loved it.  Its important to have a great announcer/DJ at a wedding they can make or break it.  As far as dealing with "Crazy" you took the high road which is the way to go.  At the end of the day it doesn't even matter anyone with any common sense can always spot the "crazy" in the crowd and that day it was Kenya.  Enjoy watching you and sorry about "The Normal".

Love you Nene!!! Can't stand Kenya......I think it's ridiculous she got mad that you invited Walter to YOUR WEDDING....Really Kenya??? Your a fake wannabe!! So proud of you Nene, and all of your success, you deserve it!! I love you more & more each season :)

And just a thought......has anyone else noticed that Kenya has yet to blog?!?!

She said it and she owns it. Despicable!

 @frebreeze It's about growth and maturity, isn't that what life's about?  So why, when someone grows and matures, they are still ridiculed?  I see this a lot on blog comments.  You'd THINK people would be happy for others' growth and maturyit.

DominiqueSphere

 @linda.stewartriley Neither were some of the others when they first joined either...Kandi has NEVER been a wife...Kim was a jumpoff for quite a while...Cynthia didn't even know if she would marry Peter...Porsha is now divorced...plus they need some new cast mates and a breath of fresh air to that show. After awhile, people get sick of seeing the same old folks year after year. Bravo is trying to do what VH1 is doing.

 @mgrchick1 Seems to me she GREW and obtained some knowledge and maturity...like most people try to do.  It's a shame that when people grow, the STILL get criticized.  I was HOPING to see some growth and maturity in Kenya, guess that didn't happen.

 @AddictedHousewifeFan

 I'm with you Addicted - Kenya wants to make her little comments via Twitter an ways that don't take any brain power but despite her self professedhigh intellect, she doesn't seem to be able to write a blog.  Hmmmm - not so Gone With the Wind Fabulous ater all!!!!
