Real Housewives of Atlanta: ‘Retro’ Nene Leakes…




                                            My boyfriend is a short, black man… well, he is short… well, he’s not black… well, it’s just in my head, but John Rich could be my boyfriend… if he weren’t married… if he didn’t have a kid.. if he liked me…


SH loves to look back and see what Bravolebrities had to say back when.  Just to see how much their outlook and opinions have changed.  Nene Leakes had a chat with ‘way back’ on January 25, 2011 and had a lot to say about…


… her fellow cast members on the Real Housewives of Atlanta; her husband, Gregg; Nene talks about the bus scene on RHOA and throws in some jabs about Kim Zolciak, of course; Nene mentions her aspirations to relocate to LA; thinking she can carry her own talk show or ‘entertainment reporting;’  how she thought she was going to be one of the first to be fired on the Celebrity Apprentice (no wonder she walked away!); rags on Star Jones; and Nene just looooves John Rich…

                                                                              From 2008:  I am the most sensitive of the Atlanta Housewives… I’m gonna own a boutique hotel… and work hard for my foundation… oh, Bravo told me to make up a foundation ’cause it would sound better than sayin’ I was a stripper.

And, an interview with Essence magazine titled Nene Leakes ‘The Sensitive One’ from October 7, 2008, after the first episode of RHOA aired.  Looks like Nene never got around to building that hotel… here.

Nene Meet Nene… Two Sides of Nene Leakes

Within a day of the Real Housewives of Atlanta and Celebrity Apprentice cast member, Nene Leakes talking with rolling out magazine, she changed her mind about her Celebrity Apprentice co-star, Star Jones and (as mentioned earlier) is now in the process of extendng the olive branch to Star…  well, a girl can change her mind, can’t she? And, Nene is known for doing that a lot…

On a sunny afternoon in Atlanta, the statuesque NeNe Leakes arrives at her photo shoot at the Buckhead Bottle Bar, and when she enters, the room feels smaller.  Moments later, Leakes is clad in a fierce black catsuit complemented with obscenely sexy Christian Louboutin stilettos.

Photographer Mr. Jeno directs her as she sprawls atop the fluorescent bar and seduces the camera. Next, Leakes has a pose of her own in mind. “How about this?” she coos, as she sits upright on the bar and stretches one leg toward California and the other toward New York. The pose is impressive; perhaps a throwback move from her former life as an exotic dancer when she danced “for the sake of my son and to restore my confidence in myself,” as explained in her book, Never Make the Same Mistake Twice.

You’ve never seen Leakes this way. She’s spirited and joking around as she playfully showcases her curves and recent weight loss in fantasy costumes.  This is NeNe Leakes — the stereotypical angry black woman component of the super-hit reality series, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta?”  “NeNe Leakes is fabulous, confident and she knows who the hell she is,” she says matter-of-factly. “NeNe Leakes is not an angry woman.”

Skeptics may point to the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” series and beg to differ.  “Some days I’m angry, and everybody is, I just happen to be on television and the camera captures me when I’m angry,” she explains. “Just imagine doing a reality show. What would they capture about you? They’d capture you on your period, pissed off, angry with your man, happy, going shopping … but they’re only going to put in the things that are most interesting. I’m not an angry black woman; I’m actually a cool ass black woman.”

And therein lies the paradox.

There are two sides to NeNe Leakes:  The girl you’d love to hate and the one you’d love to have your back.  A mesmerizing train wreck and a shrewd businesswoman;  a bully destined for a scathing comeuppance and a former domestic abuse survivor in search of happiness.

No matter how you look at Leakes, you can’t stop looking. She’s a star, not just a reality star, but a real star, as evidenced by her upcoming appearance on “Celebrity Apprentice” as Donald Trump’s new “it” girl.  That gig led to Leakes’ very public spat with that other Star, as in Jones.  Donald Trump implied that things got so ugly between the two women that certain scenes won’t be aired.  Jones reportedly hired security because she didn’t feel safe around Leakes.

Leakes confides in rolling out that she believes Star Jones has a problem with women, in general.

“I had an experience with Star,” Leakes huffs. “I had never met her before. I believe that any woman who gets around Star will find that Star’s not cool. And when you watch ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’ you will see some sides of her that are just not cool.”

Leakes’ much-anticipated appearance on “Celebrity Apprentice” will be nothing like what you’ve seen of her on “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” she says.

“ ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ wasn’t a great experience for me. It was a very hard show to do. We shot the show in literally, 45 days. It’s a big show with 16 celebrities [eight men and eight women], as opposed to working with five. The hours are bananas. You work six days a week, and you rise at 4 a.m. and you get in at midnight. The earliest was 10 p.m., but sometimes it was 1 a.m.”

Working with Donald Trump was golden, however. “Donald is great. He’s very real in his own type of way. He’s not the easiest person to get to know right away,” Leakes recalls. “It takes some time to get to know him. I found him very cool, and I must say he really likes me. You know he likes women who are really tall, and he’s had some brown sugar.” NeNe continues, “Yeah, I would date Donald Trump … let’s hook it up. I met some really important people through Mr. Trump, he has that swagger.”

Overall, Leakes states that the reality show path to show business has been a mixed blessing and returning for another season of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” isn’t a done deal. “I can’t say today that I want to be a housewife next season. I don’t know that. Maybe a month from now, I will feel different. I want to have the opportunity to talk to the producers to see where we can go as far as the editing, and as you know, we don’t have any control over that. We just shoot the show, and they show what they want to show.”

If Leakes does return, frenemy Kim Zolciak’s assistant, Sweetie Hughes, will be yet one more dynamic for her to deal with.  Last season on “Housewives,” Leakes called Sweetie a slave. Afterwards, radio host Rickey Smiley launched a “Free Sweetie” campaign on his show. Recently, Sweetie publicly charged that, “NeNe’s traumatizing my life. She’s bringing hell to it.”

Once Sweetie is mentioned, the other Leakes makes an appearance. “Sweetie is not even a housewife, nor is she a celebrity. I said on the show that Kim was treating her like a slave, and that was my opinion. As a black woman, [if you] allow any woman of any ethnicity to say to you, ‘You black b—-, go and get my cigarettes,’ either you are a slave or you have a problem. And the Free Sweetie campaign had nothing to do with me. Rickey Smiley is a comedian and he did that [as] a complete joke, and people are just laughing about it, and Sweetie is taking it seriously.”  Finally, Leakes delivers a verbal backhand: “I’m not ruining her life. What kind of life does she have anyway?”

Sweetie isn’t the only “Housewives” element that leaves a bad taste in Leakes’ mouth. In truth, she must experience everything that happens on the show while taping it, and then again a year later when the show airs. Leakes was forced to experience the breakdown of her marriage twice, her biggest regret.  “I probably would have never talked about my divorce publicly,” she explains. “[When] going through a divorce, you need to be around people who love you and care for you, and there were times that I really didn’t want to talk to people, just because I was failing in that area. I don’t think it’s anything that I did. It’s just after 14 years, we just grew apart.”

Leakes isn’t sulking over the breakup now. She’s back on the market, looking for Mr. Right, a man who is “confident in who he is, and stays in his lane and not over here in mine,” she says.  “He has to be spiritual, he has to have swagger, and it doesn’t matter if he’s black or white.”  And Leakes’ Mr. Right must have his own money.  “I’m not in it for the money, but, if I date a man he has to have his own money. I think it’s only fair,” she states. “If I’m out here making money, what in the hell am I going to do with a guy who’s not making money? Like, that’s not even cool. I don’t want to take care of a guy. If he’s out here doing his thing, I can be very supportive of him. And I’m over here doing my thing, and he’s very supportive of me. That would be great, but I cannot date a broke dude.”

As for that pregnancy rumor, Leakes’ stomach is washboard tight, and she’s not looking to expand her waistline. “What in the hell am I going to do pregnant?” she snaps. “I don’t want to birth anything. I want to travel the world and work on my career.”

Leakes’ is not looking to find her real dad either. She’s refused to take a DNA test with her possible biological father, and she’s rebuffed an invitation from his children. “I started thinking about a DNA test and being on a reality show, and their asses asking me for money,” she laughs. “No, we ain’t related. I know you, but I don’t know you, and let’s just keep it like that.”

They say that 15 minutes of fame is all you get in the limelight, and in the realm of reality TV, suddenly famous everyday folk may get even less than that. But there are always exceptions to the rule, and NeNe says it’s never been about the 15 minutes for her anyway.  “I work with a lot of people in the business who would much rather have fame over the money, and I’m a little bit different,” she states. “Famous isn’t anything that I’m trying to be. I’m just trying to work and have money.”

Stay tuned.



Predictable Nene…

You two have taken the required celebrity feuding to the max… now which one of you two classy ladies will take the first step to tone it down?  Nene!?  Star, are you going to let Nene out-class you like this?

Have the dueling divas called a truce?

Nene Leakes was known for popping off on a fellow co-star (or two) on the Real Housewives of Atlanta and when she joined the cast of Celebrity Apprentice it wasn’t long before she found herself clashing with fellow contestant Star Jones.  The feud played out in front of the cameras and in the media, but after a screaming match came to blows, reports the hot heads are trying to bury the hatchet before the drama goes any further.

“Both NeNe and Star are trying to get along better off set—it was really only when the show started taping that their competitiveness kicked-in,” said a source. “NeNe felt slighted by Star who she thought was not showing her enough respect—while Star believed that NeNe was all show and no substance.”

NeNe didn’t help the situation when she appeared on the Wendy Williams Show and said: “Star is special… I wouldn’t spit on her if she were on fire.

Jones has had problems with other contestants on the show as well. When Lisa Rinna was fired on the latest episode she angrily accused Jones of throwing her under the bus and the two have been reportedly arguing behind the scenes as well.

That’s a lot of hostility for a show that raises money for charity.  The drama is probably helping the ratings, but if the reports are true, at least Leakes and Jones are trying to put aside the childish spats and play nice.

NOTE:  Isn’t this the usual way this goes with Nene?  Major blowups and then kiss, kiss and makeup… her normal modus operandi ala Kim, so it’s kind of expected that she start making amends with Star.

The link below has a poll question:  Whose team are you on.. Nene, Star or Neither?  At last count, 50% voted for Neither…


Neverending Nene…

Nene just never stops… she’s just all over the place lately.  This time, she chats with ‘Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous’ Robin Leach himself as he is now a permanent journalist in Las Vegas.

Robin Leach after viewing ‘Social’…

“It was a take-no-prisoners premiere and a take-no-prisoners screening for four of the cast of Donald Trump’s new season of Celebrity Apprentice on NBC. The Real Housewives of Atlanta firebrand NeNe Leakes wasn’t shy about blasting Star Jones.

NeNe talked candidly with me about the onscreen feud with former The View co-host Star. “I let her stuff go at first. I just let her things happen and go on happening. Then I exploded — I just couldn’t take her anymore. She may well have gone to school for 100 years and I only went for two years. I could have saved her 98 years because I’m smarter than she’ll ever be,” she said. “I’m certainly not frightened by her or intimidated by anybody else. I don’t mind that they showed our fight because it was the truth. Anybody with respect for themselves would have stood up for themselves like I did.

Nene LeakesI have been the only star on RHOA and had to defend myself against Star Jones… I’m the only star anywhere, any place, so Star has to change her name and she shoulda done that before Celebrity Apprentice…

“I’m tough enough to take anything. I’m not good at forming alliances because I can stand on my own two feet. I went into this to show I can think and that I have business savvy with a real want to win it. ”

I asked NeNe if she was quitting Real Housewives to move on to bigger showbiz opportunities. “There’s a lot of really good things happening for me on my own. I might have lost my privacy because of Real Housewives, but I’ve got an attitude that wants to go out and win and show other women we can’t be trodden over. We’re going to show that to women.

Nene, me and the other super-secret members are voting next week on banning you from the clubhouse…

“Everything is going really good, and although Celebrity Apprentice was very hard work and long hours, people now get to see me in two different ways.  It’s all going to lead to something special.  You certainly haven’t heard the last of me.”

Episode 2 of Celebrity Apprentice airs Sunday, and all I’ve been able to pry out from New York headquarters is that there’s another battle between the guys and the girls, and one unexpected lady finds herself on The Donald’s firing line.

20 Questions with Nene Leakes… talks with Nene Leakes, 20 questions-style…

“It gets no realer than ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘ star Nene Leakes.

The in-your-face Queens, New York native is ready to let the world know that along with the sass and attitude comes a whole lot of smarts. Last night, the mother of two made her debut on the hit NBC series ‘Celebrity Apprentice.’  She wouldn’t let the cat out of the bag concerning how long she lasts, but after hearing her take on former ‘The View’ co-host Star Jones, surviving a failed marriage and her aspirations to be a Hollywood actress, we’re putting our money on Nene to go the distance.   (Maybe they should read SH…’cause we all know what happens to Nene…) Congratulations on being cast on the new season of ‘Celebrity Apprentice.’ How were you approached to do the show?
Nene Leakes:
I was actually asked to do ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ last season and I didn’t do it. So, when they came back this season and they said, “We’d love to have you on ‘Celebrity Apprentice,” my manager and publicists brainstormed and we thought it would be a good thing for me.

The Donald

BV: Are you really cool with Donald Trump?
He is very real. I can really appreciate that about somebody. I love when people don’t put on airs. I have a lot of respect for him. I told him I respected him and his children are really great and he told me that he has been successful because he has surrounded himself with some really smart people – really great people. I hope that I can do the same. I got to tell you that’s his hair, honey. He does not have on a toupee. That is his hair. He has the different swoop thing going on, but that is his hair.

BV: Is there one thing people who know you from ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ will be surprised to see watching you this season on ‘Celebrity Apprentice’?
One thing you will see, and you did see a little bit of this on ‘The Real Housewives’ this season is my business side. I know from being on the ‘Housewives’ show, people think, “Oh, she’s [about] the drama,” they will get to see I am not as crazy as they think I am. I like to say, “I’m crazy like a fox.”

BV: Some of the blogs were saying that one of the ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ contestants, Star Jones, put a restraining order out against you. Is that true?
Not that I know of. I don’t have a restraining order. I think that when you get a restraining order they let you know that you have one, don’t they? I don’t know if that’s how it works, but if there is a restraining order out on me, I don’t know it.

BV: Who do you think was your strongest competition?
I don’t know who my strongest competition was, but Star was definitely a challenge. Lil’ Jon. Everybody on the show is very smart, and I would say they all are a challenge in their own way.

Nene before she rode off in the cab…

BV: Were you worried about how soon you might be voted off?
When I first got there I said, “As long as I’m not the first one fired, I’ll be okay.” I just didn’t want to be first. Other than that, I’m okay. I didn’t go in with any strategies. I just went in as myself. You guys have no idea what I have gone through when I was doing this show. I was going through something very personal in my life and I think that I am a very strong woman from doing this show. This is a tough show to do. We filmed this show in 30 days. We worked our asses off six days a week. We get one day off, on Sundays, and the hours are long as hell. You wake up at 4 a.m. and you’re back in the bed at midnight.

BV: It seems like that would be really tough for you.
Yes. But, I want to get back to what you said earlier. I heard something that was very interesting. I didn’t hear that there was a restraining order, but I heard that the police was called. I was just wondering when and where. I want to make this very clear. While I was on that show, the police was never called that I know of… a lick was never passed between any contestant, like pushing or shoving or touching them in any way. They are trying to hype up a few things, but there are a few things that I just won’t accept. If the police were ever called, they called the police well after I left the show. Maybe that was made up after the fact, but if there was a restraining order, that is a big fat lie. I won’t stand for something like that. Someone trying to make my character something that it is not. I think that would be really f**ked up of them to do something like that.

***Spoiler Alert… Nene Never Fired On Apprentice has some reliable ‘insiders’ and they are reporting what really happens to the Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Nene Leakes in the following weeks on The Celebrity Apprentice

Nene can’t take the heat… she gots some real problems… next up:  Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Rehab…

From  “All of you folks waiting for NeNe Leakes to get FIRED on the show Celebrity Apprentice . . . FORGET ABOUT IT!!!

According to a rock solid snitch, NeNe and Star get into a BIG CONFRONTATION in a few weeks. After the fight, where NeNe is prepared to BUST STARS AZZ . . . NeNe hops into a taxi cab and WALKS OFF THE SET.

And she NEVER comes back …”

NOTE: This report doesn’t surprise me one bit.  Was Nene about ready to use her by-now-perfected strangling technique on Star, caught herself and just took off?  It’s always Nene’s way or the highway… and obviously, Nene took the highway… literally!  Wonder if she told the cab driver to take her to Andy Cohen’s Bravo office… and they had a little talk about her future with the Bravo Housewives franchise.  Buh-bye, Nene!!!


Nene v Star… It’s Flamin’!

The battle may be over between Real Housewives of Atlanta’s NeNe Leakes and Star Jones but the WAR is apparently just beginning!

What started as a few snide comments between the two ‘Celebrity Apprentice‘ cast mates has turned into an all out HATE fest.  NeNe Leakes jump-started their public battle during an appearance on Wendy Williams:

After Star lashed back against NeNe’s talk show diss, the tension between the two soon escalated to Star proclaiming that her safety was in jeopardy.

“NeNe is coming unhinged,” a source close to Star says, adding that during taping the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star made La Toya Jackson cry and even got in the face of singing legend Dionne Warwick.

But it’s her beef with Star that is particularly nasty. “Clearly, she can’t get along with women, especially other black women. She is losing it,” said the source.

“The new season of premieres March 6, but insiders have already told me that it gets so ugly that Star had to hire her own security detail to keep the Bravo star at bay.

Now it’s NeNe’s turn and she’s struck back with a slew of insults to Star.Big Gay Al and Star

This time she’s targeting Star’s failed marriage to Al Reynolds (affectionately known around the net as “Big Gay Al.”)

Very zesty lookin’ BG Al and Star

NeNe holds no punches and roasts Star for marrying a man who she says is obviously GAY!

“NeNe called Star an old, fallen star, and Star told NeNe she was talentless and in a loveless marriage!” says a source.

“She got in Star’s face and said if she wanted to talk about marriages, she’d be happy to remind Star about her own ex-husband, Al Reynolds.

NeNe joked that Al cared more about face creams, manicures and trying to be ‘pretty’ than he did about Star, and that she’d be happy to fix her up with a real man.”

“Star was outraged because she’s sick and tired of people making gay jokes about her ex-husband.”

In the meantime, Star continues to send subliminal pot shots to NeNe online via Twitter:

Star Jones La Toya Jackson and Star Jones are spotted participating in a challenge for the reality TV series "The Celebrity Apprentice". The contestants could be seen setting up a campsite on the streets in Manhattan.

Did Star just drop some NeNe stripper history in her timeline? Yikes! It’s funny how the main people who claim they want to stay out of drama are the ones who send the best zingers via Twitter!

The new season of ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ hasn’t even started yet and these two have already created a hot mess in an old dirty crockpot!   Da Donald has to be quite pleased by all the free promo.

Just for the hell of it… Free Sweetie:


Source:    Star Jones Hires Bodyguards to Protect Her from NeNe Leakes]

Nene, Nene, Nene and More Nene

The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Miss Nene Leakes has been everywhere lately… her interview with ‘Rolling Out‘ Magazine comes out tomorrow and here are Nene’s opinionated highlights:

Well, these two from Rolling Out magazine are still on Nene’s good side…. whew!

STAR JONES: NeNe tells Rolling Out that Star Jones has a problem with women, in general.” I had an experience with Star,” NeNe huffs. “I had never met her before. I believe that any woman who gets around Star will find that Star’s not cool. And when you watch “Celebrity Apprentice,” you will see some sides of her that are just not cool.”

Star’s looking cool here…

CELEBRITY APPRENTICE: NeNe’s much anticipated appearance on “Celebrity Apprentice,” will be nothing like what you’ve seen of her on “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” she says. “Celebrity Apprentice wasn’t a great experience for me; it was a very hard show to do. We shot the show in literally 45 days. It’s a big show with 16 celebrities (you have eight guys and eight girls), as opposed to working with five. The hours are bananas; you work six days a week, and you rise at 4 a.m. and you get in at midnight. The earliest was 10 p.m.; but sometimes it was 1 a.m.”

Celebrity Apprentice is soooo hard… where’s the gifting suites???

DONALD TRUMP: Working with Donald Trump was golden, however. “Donald is great; he’s very real in his own type of way. He’s not the easiest person to get to know right away,” NeNe recalls. “It takes some time to get to know him. I found him very cool, and I must say he really likes me. You know he likes women who are really tall. And he’s had some brown sugar.”  NeNe continues, “Yeah, I would date Donald Trump…let’s hook it up. I met some really important people through Mr. Trump, he has that swagger.”

Would these two have anything in common other than they are both loud and have similar hair styles?  If Trump dumps Melania for Nene, Nene would have to bring something very unique to their marriage…  well, Nene, what would that be???

RETURN TO REAL HOUSE WIVES OF ATLANTA: Overall, NeNe states that the reality show path to show business has been a mixed blessing and returning for another season of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” isn’t a done deal. “I can’t say today that I want to be a housewife next season, I don’t know that. Maybe a month from now, I will feel different. I want to have the opportunity to talk to the producers to see where we can go as far as the editing, and as you know, we don’t have any control over that, we just shoot the show and they show what they want to show.”   (Note to Nene:  You getting edit control will never, ever, ever happen…)

These signs don’t count anymore… BHM was LAST month…

If NeNe does return, frenemy Kim Zolciak’s assistant, Sweetie Hughes, will be yet one more dynamic for her to deal with.

ON RUINING SWEETIE’S LIFE: Last season on “Housewives,” NeNe called Sweetie a slave. Afterwards, Atlanta radio host Rickey Smiley launched a “Free Sweetie” campaign on his show. Recently, Sweetie publicly charged that, “NeNe’s traumatizing my life. She’s bringing hell to it.”

NeNe delivers a smack: “I’m not ruining her life; what kind of life does she have anyway?”   EW-OUCH!!   Really, Nene… what has Sweetie ever done to you?  Sweetie has never even tried to choke or strangle you…. ever.  Now leave Sweetie alone.

Nene is Nutso…Still

These two videos were taken a month apart two years ago. The first is an interview with all the Real Housewives of Atlanta and Ryan Seacrest.  What I noticed about this HWs chat with Seacrest was that nothing has changed with Nene from almost two years ago, she has just gotten worse:

The second was shot with Nene and the Real Housewives of Orange County, Gretchen Rossi, ironically at the future Real Housewives of  Beverly Hills Lisa Vanderpump’s Villa Blanca Restaurant:

The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Nene Leakes is stretching her 15-minutes of fame into long strands of discourse on just about any topic that flys through her brain… and Nene is labeling her babble as ‘great advice’… read on and decide for yourself:

  1. Take control. Life threw NeNe a curveball when she discovered that the man she thought was her father wasn’t.
    When NeNe met the guy who could have been her biological dad, she decided to skip the family reunion. Why? She’s a grown woman, and a celebrity. Had NeNe pursued a DNA test, she may have found her real dad, but she would have lost control over that element of her personal life.
  2. Give the people what they want; become the ultimate fantasy. How did NeNe steal the spotlight and become a runaway hit? She’s a fantasy for men and women alike. For one, she’s opinionated. Like a favorite aunt, NeNe is the one that will sift through the family B.S. and call a spade a spade — that’s her appeal. And who wouldn’t want NeNe to show up on their job to cuss out an obnoxious boss, in the manner that she handled Sweetie and her boss, Kim Zolciak?  For some women, NeNe represents the alter-ego lioness that they are too politically correct or too socially refined to be. For men, NeNe’s unpredictability makes her magnetic.
  3. Burn the unsteady bridge. There is no room for the frenemy in NeNe’s world. When you’re out, you’re out. Just ask fellow cast mate from the “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” Kim Zolciak. The Godfather adage, “keep your friends close and your enemies closer,” just doesn’t work in the cut-throat landscape of reality TV, where everyone you’ve ever known may sell you out for their own 15 minutes of fame.
  4. Use what you’ve got to get what you want. NeNe has made it clear that now that she’s back on the market, she’s looking for a quality guy with some dividends. Sure, NeNe Leakes’ mile-long legs are one of her prized possessions, but she can also be charming when warranted. For example, NeNe reportedly faces-off with Star Jones on “Celebrity Apprentice.” Do you believe that NeNe snapped-off every day while working with Donald Trump? Of course not. More than likely, NeNe Leakes batted her blazing brown eyes and showed her softer side from time-to-time. “I actually really have a shy side. I am not as outspoken as people believe that I am,” admits Leakes.  On top of that, she kicked the door wide open for a future connection with Trump. “I’d date Donald Trump,” she added.
  5. Re-create your brand. So, how does one transform oneself from an exotic dancer trying to make ends meet, to a socialite housewife, to a hit reality show contestant, and alas, mainstream stardom? Constant re-creation. You’ve never seen the same NeNe twice. She’s a woman who defies being pigeonholed; NeNe’s gigs have included writing a book, television entertainment reporter, and of course, she appears on the new season of “Celebrity Apprentice.” With those multiple streams of revenue under her belt, NeNe has the trump card to approach the producers of “RHOA” next season and “see where we can go as far as the editing, “she says, to assume some control over her image. (See point number one).                                                                                        (Nene taking control of the editing on RHOA to make sure her image is improved over past seasons?  IMO, the RHOA producers and Andy will never relinquish the editing to Nene… buh-bye, Nene!)

altNene… needs image rehab

Check out the Nene’s video interview:


Nene Leakes on Star Jones

Real Housewives of Atlanta, Nene Leakes will be participating on Celebrity Apprentice, which will air on March 6, with Star Jones.   According to numerous reports, Nene and Star did not get along while shooting the Apprentice.  The latest tiff report is from Nene.  Nene was on the Wendy Williams Show and told Wendy that ‘if Star was on fire, she wouldn’t even spit on her.’   Ouch!

Star sent these tweets out after the Wendy Show aired yesterday:

“Lesson learned long ago: “Never get into a PIG fight…because 3 things happen: You get tired, you get dirty and only the pig has fun! 12:09 PM Feb 8th”

 “tearing down others with foul words does not elevate your status…it illuminates your lack thereof.” 12:18 PM Feb 8th

Ignorance in pretty clothes and high heeled shoes is still ignorance…“There is nothing more frightful than ignorance in action.” 3:25 PM Feb 8th

I’m not sure if these two might be playing up the drama to help promote the premiere of the show in March. If so, NeNe’s taking on the bulk of this task.

Nene Leakes Husband in Fight…

Mind you, is reporting this as a RUMOR… but, you know how rumors are (most of them are TRUE!)…   Soooo, maybe those RUMORS about Nene being pregnant are true…

January 20, 2011. Here’s a breaking report, sent in by an MTO spy:


“Just seen NeNe Leakes of Atlanta Housewives with [a man who looked like] NFL football player, Charles Grant outside a 24-hour supermarket just minutes after 1:00AM in Alpharetta, GA.

While [the man] and NeNe’s husband, Greg, wrestled for what seemed to be car keys. The altercation lasted about 10 minutes but was stopped by an officer in a private security vehicle. NeNe Leakes left the scene as a passenger in what appeared to be [the new BF’s] vehicle.”
