Nene Leakes is a star, but she is Nobody’s Friend

Nene Leakes is the star of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. What she says goes and if you challenge her supremacy you will find yourself watching the show versus being on the show. Nene was tight with Kim and when they broke up Kim was soon history. She fought with Sheree, and then Sheree was a goner. She handpicked Marlo, but when Marlo crossed her she dismissed her, but last night Nene took it to a new level. Cynthia her good and faithful servant became the latest to be a member of the former friend list. Cynthia Bailey has been there for Nene. She has been her ride or die chick even when the viewers questioned Cynthia’s sanity. A couple of week’s ago on the show Nene called Cynthia’s husband Peter a “bitch.” It’s hard to come back from that kind of insult, but Cynthia seemingly accepted Nene’s non-apology apology. Last night during an interview with Andy Cohen, Nene unleashed her wrath on Cynthia, and she also through some shade on former castmate, Sheree. Last night Nene had a platform provided by the network and she suggested that Cynthia should be dismissed from the show. It is hard to break it off with Nene. If you are on the show you do so at your own peril. A few weeks ago my son was home from school and he sat down with us and watched some of the show. He said that Nene was a “beast”, and I have to agree with him. She devours her enemies. Nene has gone from being a fun loving down to earth woman on Season 1 who made us laugh to being a “star”. She has improved her looks, her clothing and her stature, but along the way she shed the persona that made us root for her. The fact is Nene is a star, but last night she proved she is nobody’s friend.

RHOA gets way too Real…Apollo Nida facing felony charges

We laugh at the antics of the Real Housewives of Atlanta and the other franchises, but do they pressure the participants to appear wealthy? Apollo Nida is facing a laundry list of felony charges and he is not the first in the franchises to face similar charges. Share your thoughts.

Kandi Burress and Fantasia slam Wendy Williams on Bravo TV

This is comical. Last night Real Housewife of Atlanta Kandi Burress and Fantasia appeared on andy cohen’s late night show. Burress complained about the fact that talk show diva Wendy Williams has said negative things abour her relationship. Basically Burress and Fantasia told Williams to take care of her own relationship. This is downright funny. Burress had a career as a former member of a girl group and she also is a successful songwriter, but she did not truly blow up until she appeared on reality television. Barrino is a product of reality television. Reality television is predicated on drama, and the participants put their business out there for the world to see. When you do this you open up yourself to commentary. In some cases it is positive but you have to prepare for the negative. You can’t simply tell somebody to mind their own business when you get paid to expose your own. Wedy williams does a talk show not a reality show. She can tell us things about her family or her relationship if she so desires, but she does not have to do it her contract does not dictate it. Burress might need to read the fine print on her’s.

Nene Leakes on the cover of Ebony…is this the new normal?

Reality star Nene leakes is on the December issue of ebony magazine. She is part of their Power 100 issue. ebony has moved from an issue related magazine to a black People magazine so I guess Leakes is a logical cover girl. Read the linked story for another perspective.

Atlanta Real Housewife NeNe leakes says “white is right”…yes this is 2012

If you are over the age of 30 you might have heard the following statement “white is right, if you are brown stick around and if you are black get back”. In 2009 Rev. James Lowrey said this at the Obama inauguration, but he is 90 years old. It’s something that was often said back in the day, but seldom uttered in this century. That’s why it was surprising to hear NeNe Leakes say “white is right” tonight. She said this because she is currently dating a white guy, but the irony of this episode is her black son had just been released from jail and her soon to be ex black husband was trying to impart some wisdom and motivate the son. She even complimented her soon to be ex in a sideline interview, but she had no problem repeating the aged refrain. It’s 2012 and we are still repeating the sad statements made by our oppressed ancestors. It’s time to wake up.

Essence Music Festival 2011-Nene Leakes an American Success Story?

The Essence Music Festival was held in New Orleans over the weekend. I was sent the photo above and I was struck by Nene Leakes. We first met Leakes on the Bravo show The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and most recently she appeared on NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice. She is living the American Dream. She got her 15 minutes of fame and she has managed to parlay them into a career. Who cares that she berates and belittles her castmates in this day and time that’s classified as entertainment. She has managed to make the previous reality villian Omarosa look like a Sunday school teacher. Leakes was at the festival delivering encouraging and inspiring words to the crowd. Leakes is now famous, and that is an achievement, but the real question is was it worth it?

Reality Star Nene Leakes is Seriously in Need of a Reality Check

A few days ago I wrote of the battle between Nene Leakes and Star Jones. One of the comments I received was “who is Nene”?. I really forgot most of America does not know her since her claim to fame is Bravo TV Real Housewives of Atlanta. Her appearance on NBC Apprentice this March will probably make her a household name, but at what cost? She has been going on various talk shows beefing with Star Jones and we have seen her in the promos for the show hurl insults at various cast mates, but the other day I saw her do something that was simply vile. She was shown mocking Marlee Matlin.  Matlin who is deaf uses sign language and there was Leakes using her hands in a feeble attempt at humor. Is this what we have come to? We have Leakes acting as a loud bully doing non sensical hand gestures? This is not funny and NBC, the Apprentice and Nene Leakes should be ashamed, but if the rating go through the roof they will simply say this is must see television.

What is Nene Leakes beef with Star Jones?

Nene Leakes and Star Jones will both be on  NBC show Celebrity Apprentice scheduled for March of this year. Over the last few weeks Nene Leakes, whose claim to fame is being on the Bravo show Real Housewives of Atlanta has appeared on various talks shows badmouthing Star Jones. On the Wendy Williams Show, Leakes said she “would not spit on Star Jones if she was on fire.” Finally, Jones has had enough of this foolishness and she has released the following statement,”I did Celebrity Apprentice to raise money and awareness for a charity [the American Heart Association] that has been instrumental in my life, not to see it reduced to a cliché where black women attack one another for publicity’s sake…I haven’t commented on any of her comments in hopes that she would remember that we all participated in this show for charity and not as a vehicle to promote ourselves and such hatred. I was clearly wrong and I decided to finally respond.” You go Star, you are trying to take the high road and unfortunately that is a foreign path for the ultimate wannabee Nene Leakes.
