I've missed a week or so of chatting with you guys because I have been busy filming The New Normal and I attended my first Golden Globes, which was exciting and overwhelming at the same time. It was truly an honor, because many actors never get the call that they have seats at such a prestigious event.
Can I just tell you guys how hooked I am on my little Glam-baby? She has just brightened our lives in ways we never thought of. She is simply adorable!
This past episode was all about being an ass, LOL! Me personally, I like to roll with Team Right! Friend or no friend! Let me take you back a minute. Remember when Phaedra was going to represent Sheree in her child support case? Phaedra made it clear that she doesn’t work for free, and she supposedly had to chase sheer down for 5k before she would start the proceedings. We are all in businesses that we hope will make us money, and doing business with friends is always a tricky thing. It’s funny how the two of them pride themselves on being such business women but didn’t have enough business sense to have a contract upfront. My thoughts are this: from what I could see on the show, Phaedra didn’t think Kenya deserved to be paid. If Kenya was going to help produce Phaedra's donkey booty video, she should be paid for her efforts and hard work! Surely Phaedra paid the men she met with.
I must say I am enjoying watching you this season. I also liked you on WWHL when she stated to Andy he should ask her questions at the reunion. The three questions were: 1. There's a housewife of Atlanta that has a past that she doesn't want anybody to know about. Who is the housewife? The answer is Phaedra. 2. Guess the housewife who asks about food and doesn't need anything to eat? The answer is Kandi. Guess the housewife that gave her something as gift? The answer is Kenya. NeNe also stated she has the cancelled check and she doesn't accept gifts?
Okay, NeNe I was with you on your Tweets of questions, but “let’s be real” those who have watch RHoATL know you accepted quite a bit of gifts from that Caucasian man (a Rolex and shoes to name a few). You have admitted to this so it is not from anybody's mouth but yours.
I am one to say, it is something I also have a problem with accepting gifts, because I don't want to feel I owe anybody anything. There are people that feel you owe them something when they give gifts or favors. My practice is that I give gifts when I want to and nobody should give me anything because of what I gave them. I give because I want to give and I don't want anything in return. I don't go out of my way and I don't buy expensive things, but I buy things I like and would like for myself. Yes, I must admit -- I usually buy myself the same thing.
I love me some NeNe. Hey, not putting off on anyone. But dinner is at 9 not midight. I don't care who you are or what circle of life you come from. That is just rude with a R. Being a GA born and raised individual, I would have responded the same. I would love to meet NeNe and just chat with her for a few. Hey, she is a working woman. Give her the common courtesy to know and respect that. End of story ladies.
It's a long trip from Atlanta & pain in ass to get thru airports especially in L,A, & I am sure with all that that resting up was well needed. I wonder why NeNe didnt make the dinner on following night & had just some girl time together on they're first night there? NeNe isnt my fav. at all & I am waiting on her bubble to burst as it will. She came from nothing & thinks she's so much better than anyone...that usually stirs up some bad ass Karma
Nene, now you know they need to give you a talk show honeyyyy....we want some real talk...from a real hw.......what are they waiting for?? The fans to ask for it?? OK...powers that be....GIVE NENE LEAKES A TALK SHOWWWWW????
Tell them Nene, good bye, good night and should have added good riddance! LOVIN' IT and LOVE YOU!!!!!
I still love Nene...and Marlo!! I hope Nene and M film together this season. Gregg seems like a snake...so pushy about getting keys and what not. Eew! Shoedazzle project being 100% for charity made me love Nene even more.
Wow Nene! I just watched the video of you throwing your friends out of your driveway. Granted it was late but I'm sure they did not plan on arriving at that time. You could have easily been in that limo...one of the girls. I sure hope the "Hills" are not getting to your head. Please don't let it change you. You owe your girls an apology!
Just wanted to say, donating the proceeds from Shoedazzle was pretty righteous of you. Keeping the proceeds would have been perfectly understandable, but giving back to a such a worthy cause, I tip my hat to you.
I had to laugh when you said to Ellen "well we are both in the hills now girl." Ellen said "we'll I'm in Beverly Hills, not the Hollywood hills." BAM!!!! For you to compare yourself to Ellen is ludacris and hysterical!!! You need to move yourself down a few notches!
So you like walter. Watch out. 1. He asked Kandi out . did not tell Kenya, until she asked about skeletons in his closet. ( means he was close to your circle) 2. More interest in the men than his suppose love (kenya). accepts invite from Kenya least liked person. He wants to still be included in the qroup. tht his ex introduce him to.(kind of odd) why??????????????
Babies are such a joy.I know the circumstances are not what you would have preferred,but she's going to the the extension of your heart.Your going to be able to give her such lessons of life and love.A new life brings the world hope.Enjoy her and best wishes!!!!!
rotflmboooooooooo. let them roll down that same hill the climbed up. you should have talked to those haters from your intercom. shame on you cynthia bailey. we know the others are haters but i thought nene was your girl
Hi love!! I'm sorry to inform that , as hard as I've tried, I'm not watching the new normal anymore, it is easily one of the worst shows EVER!!!! You and Ellen are not on enoug, or it might not be sooo bad.... Love you nene, keep on keeping on!!!!
Saw you on the View twice now, you are really moving on up. You looked beautiful. Good Luck, it's nice to see a different side of you.
I don't want any part of my body to look like an Animal so both titles are disgusting. Leave the booty video's to Kim Kardashian.
I must first say that I have followed the show from the moment it aired five years ago and I must say that I have loved watching you grow as a person over the years. I rejoiced with you watching your success and must say of all the woman, you are in my opinion the most honest, genuine, and level headed of all the woman. Not to mention, the most consistent in your friendships. Love you to pieces!
I just wanted you Nene to know that you are why I am so into the Real Housewives. I bought all 4 seasons recently after seeing reruns. I think that the show is boring now with so less of you and no Kim Sheree and Marlo. You all keep it real and let us know that although we may get rich we will never lose our Nene nicknames and personality. You and Kim were like Lucy and Ethel. I absolutely loved watching y'all. People like seeing art imitate life, and that is what episodes 1 through 4 did. I would love to see you on the big screen in a real movie about real people, people who get their cars repossessed and laugh about, people who are millionares and forget to get partials. America has some kind of self-hatred. It forgets to show the Nenes and all. So much of black Hollywood is about glitz and glamour. I want to see a black Million Dollar Baby or Officer and a Gentleman. I hope someone writes a good script for you.
Nene, you are my favorite Real house wife of Atlanta since the first season. You are so real. The rest are so fake, ughhh!!! I just cant stand them.
Gitl,you came off as an terrible person that so full of yourself. I know that you work hard to get were you did and I proud of you for that. I do not know why ou do not like what you call it the smalls. You threw that corner of your eye and an smile on our face when Kenya did the thing she did. Phaedra has not done nothing on the shows to not like you. Kenya took upon herself to do things with them sitting down and discussing the business. Now that Sheree business she kept on asking her for the money up front. Why did Sheree wait all this time to tried to get a divorcee and just was the person who expected a free hand out. There were a dhoe where she pawn that great big TV for the money and she was living in an apartment. Kenya should not came to your shoe business dress like a fool.I hope you get better and you and your ex better also. I hope it not true what others are saying about free wedding. Good look on your two shows because I do not like Glee or New Normal show. Living in Calf. is very high place to live plus as you know what you have now you might not have tomorrow.
people that have arrive r the ones that are known in Hollywood, u have 1 show behind u & U think u have arrive...please!!!
I just watched the latest episode. The little bit they showed of you, you seemed so comfortable and chill with yourself. I want to see more of you. I'd rather watch your career develop (along with whatever Kandi's working on) and your fun attitude with Greg and your grand baby than the Phaedra/Kenya or Cynthia/Porsha drama. Here me BRAVO..?
All I'm gonna say is I used to couldn't STAND ya!
With that being said, OBVIOUSLY you are one of the most REAL and HONEST housewives there are, because you are willing to SEE yourself and CHANGE!
Also, you have done a whole damn lot to further your career! You are not afraid to focus less on your looks and reputation and MORE on your STRENGTHS which is your comedic presence!!!!
Listen, just cause I know how you hollywood types are, and that's my new NICKNAME for you anyway "hollywood"..
Not that you have not evolved into the most incredibly beautiful black woman on tv along with some of the GREATS. You have managed to develop this incredible comedic timing on the show as well as molding your "face time" into some of the most interesting and incredible clips on the whole damn show! They truly crack me up, your appreciation of your new found fame and your fans is so damn sincere!!!
Love you MEAN IT!
Wishin you the best of damn luck!!!
P.s. Enjoy the way you love your grandbaby, I'm a new glammommy and I GET IT!!!
P.s.s. If you need any help with your blog, I love writing more than breathing, just need the opportunity.
Love ya girl! You deserve all of what you have accomplished and more! You have certainly earned it all. Watch out for Greg though. Even though you are no longer married--please contract with him what your expectations are for his "help". Though he IS baby's daddy, I can see him suing you for helping you while you pursue your wonderful and growing career. He might say he MADE you. Don't trust his word nor his fatherhood! Yes, you may think you need him now but it may be cheaper to hire someone to do most of what you need done. Do a contract that focuses on his contact with his child. What you need him to be as a parent while you are working I am a Social Worker and Mediator and I do it daily! Don't want to work for you--just giving you advice! Do it ok?
NeNe. I recall Phaedra not agreeing to that fee NOT to work for free! Working for free was part of Kendra's drama! Please don't get sucked into that ok?
does anyone know who designed the multi colored top/tunic nene wore on rhoa last week and where to buy it. nene why did u take your cloths off nene's closet
I think it's great what you've accomplished in your life while remaining true to yourself. Well done!!!
BTW...Congrats NeNe on all your success! You are awesome on housewives! So happy for you and Gregg8... you are great together . Your happiness proves this. Congrats on your beautiful granddaughter! What a great family!
So glad Kim is gone. I was so over her. I know you had nothing to do with her leaving but I just couldn't find a better place to say GOOD BYE KIM, NEVER COME BACK. Nene, love your TRUTH...makes you GENUINE! With all the fakes in this world - it's a breath of fresh air.
Nene, you appear to have mellowed since working things out with Gregg. One thing: Goldie Hawn has the copyright on "Glamma"...that's what her first grand baby called her. Kind of distasteful to hear you say it as if you coined the term.
Nene, NOTHING Kenya did that night was what a classy woman would do... I agree with Phaedra Kenya needs professional HELP and needs it fast. She is setting such a negative standard for herself. Yes 'Glam-Baby" is very beautiful and I truly like the way you and Greg have got in Bryson's butt about being responsibile.
Love me some Nene you make the show woman. You need to talk to your girl Cynthia, she is shady. You are not around much anymore. Check the tapes and see for yourself what is happening. Phaedra is in her right to nix Kenya, you would too, somebody trying to ram, something down your throat. I know that you'd have a fit, you are in the contract world now and I am sure you negotiated you contract for the New Normal. Phaedra is a little shady sometimes but she is in her rights. Keep up the good work, I am so happy for you and Craig.and the new baby. Go Glamma, she is so blessed to have you and Craig as grands.
Did you really APPROVE of Kenya's actions? Not only with the Shoedazzle event but ANY segment she ha been shown in. Be careful, you two have nothing in common even though I believe she has you thinking you do.No having your Mother in your life does not make you Kindred souls. BE CAREFUL, dear.
NeNe, I am very proud of you! Please, please study and surround your self around season actresses. I want to see you get an Oscar. If Whoopi can do it, so can you!
And really NeNe was Kenya seriously showing Kandi a blueprint of the stage she was about to have her production company build???? LMAO...
NeNe let me ask you this, would you be willing to hand over ten percent of your brand???? I don't think so! For the record, Phaedra never asked Kenya to secure a distribution deal!! Why would she, Phaedra is the more famous one!! and thats how they come to a distribution deal!! Kenya makes it sound like this distributor is dying to work with her, and thats what the distribution deal was based on!! Not true at all.. Of all people, I can't believe Kenya got over on you!!! she made it a point to let everyone know, that you were fine with her making a spectacle out of herself, at a charity event for domestic violence!!!!! Kind of makes you look like a sucka!!!!!! Sorry NeNe you are my favorite housewife of all the wives, but I am seriously pissed that I may have to watch Kenya for years to come!!! I can't relate with her at all! not even in next week's episode.......
@realdealru2 Good lesson there. Don't make big plans on the same evening your friends get in town. Down time with cocktails and some nibbles would have been nice.
You are wrong, she owes no one an apology. She did exactly what she should have done and I hope when the rest comes out she stuck to her guns. No one has to put up with rude and what those girls did was RUDE!
@sadie.brim Please don’t say you actually believed that relationship was genuine, because no one is did.
If you don't like her, stay off her blog! There are too many of us that do love her so hopefully she will not be gone. She is the only one worth watching! She needs her own show so those like you haters can stay away.
LOL You are so right!!
@piperbeau I am right with you. Kenya is so annoying to me, I record the program and fast forward through her. I hope she is gone next season.
@marandia2 @lorain Hollywood is about money and time if you want to be taken seriously. Nene didn’t have a guest list of wannabe’s and fans, but people she wanted to make a good impression to. She’s new to town and she’s trying to make a name for herself. I don’t think the ladies understood it. However, she should also be considerate of their time in return. Still, love you Nene.
