Last night, Nene Leakes made her debut in the Broadway production of Roger & Hammerstein’s Cinderella’. No she was not playing the horse that drew the carriage that Cinderella was riding in. She is playing the evil stepmother Madame. For the sake of her reputation, I hope Nene showed out last night since she has been so quick to let the world know that she is on Broadway.
Prior to opening night, Nene had this to say about her Cinderella experience:
“It’s not an easy role to play. I’m struggling with my voice now — sleeping with a humidifier and trying to make it to opening night. It’s a lot of work. Eight shows are a lot of shows in one week. But it’s definitely a dream come true. I think every actor dreams of doing Broadway one day.”
Husband Greg was in attendance last night to support his leading lading on her opening night.
Nene is staring alongside Keke Palmer. She’ll be in this role through the final show on January 3. New York is too cold this time a year for my Miami blood. One of y’all check out the show and let me know how it is.
Y’all can cuss me out all y’all want, and say whatever y’all want to say about me when it comes to Kenya Moore. I JUST DON’T SEE IT FOR HER. I don’t feel like anything that Kenya does in genuine. If you are going to give to charity, give to charity. No need to get on Instagram and turn it into a “look at what I’m doing” campaign. No tea no shade, I will acknowledge that despite Kenya’s motives, this contribution is a great thing For the Detroit Public Schools System. However, I want to know, what the hell took Kenya so long to stroke the check? Hell, Nene challenged her to make a 20k donation MONTHS AGO. Better late than never huh? I’ll tell you what took so long, the broke b!tch didn’t have it. With RHOA getting ready to air soon, Bravo has issued another one of the ladies incremental payments, and now Kenya was able to write the check. Ha!
As for Nene’s 20k matching of Kenya’s contribution, y’all know it’s coming. Something in my spirit tells me that Nene is probably going to donate even more to one-up Kenya. If petty competition fosters donations being made to needy causes, than I am all for it. All jokes aside, let me say this loudly to Kenya Moore:
Kenya, THANK YOU so much for your contribution to charity. You didn’t have to do it, but you did. 20k is a pretty substantial sacrifice from anyone’s personal funds, and for this, God is going to bless you!
I do have a few nice bones in my body! Let me point out that Kenya was supposed to hand deliver the check to her former high school. They had an assembly planned in her honor and all. For whatever reason, Kenya couldn’t attend.
“I’m disappointed for a variety of reasons,” said Glenda Price, president of the Detroit Public Schools Foundation.
“The students at Cass Tech were preparing to perform. There has been so much anticipation about her visiting the school.”
Oh well lady, shut up and take the check. If it ever makes it there. LOL! BYE
Ewwww Chile… Where do I start? For the last few weeks, Marlo Hampton has been weighing on my mind heavily. As we prepare for the return of The Real Housewives of Atlanta to our Sunday night television lineup, I’ve been pondering on all the changes and developments that have taken place over the years. My Gawd, we have really travelled and grown with these ladies. Think about it, so much has happened between Nene and her first nose and Nene her current nose. The one thing that has yet to happen is the completion of Chateau Sheree’, but we’ll save that for another day.
It goes without saying, from day one, Nene Leakes was the star of the show. Her sassy, keep it real, tell it like it is attitude, kept things interesting and the fans locked in. Over time, Nene’s fame afforded her opportunities that forced her to have to make some pretty drastic modifications to that brass attitude we had grown to love. No big deal right? The same Nene Leakes that we all grew to love was still there at her core. Wrong! It may be true that personal growth most certainly advanced Leakes in areas unimaginable, but it damn sure caused her to lose footing on RHOA. The inability to cut up, show her ass, cuss out, fight, etc, left Leakes’s “Queen Bee” seat very vulnerable and susceptible to infiltration. Enter Kenya Moore, and Nene was ultimately dethroned.
Everyone knows, I really don’t feature Miss Kenya Moore AT ALL! However, The Doll has never had problem giving credit where credit is due. Listen to me, when you are a washed up, f&cked out pageant queen, with no tangible employable skills, no real income, and no general interest from Hollywood, you gotta do what you gotta do. Kenya Moore was given an opportunity of a lifetime, and that bitch TURNT IT! For that, you have got to give it to that b!tch. She did exactly what she was supposed to. Kenya exhausted every resource at her disposal, took no prisoners, and kept her emotions out of the game. Continue reading
Listen, this picture just SCREAMS messy. It very well could be that all three ladies just so happened to be at the same place at the same time, and decided to take a picture, but i don’t know Nessa Girl. All three ladies were attended the The Think Like A Man Too movie premiere in New York. I do know Cynthia & Marlo personally. I’m going to go out on a limb and say they all just happened to be there. I seriously don’t think that all three of them rode there together perse’. However, this picture does look a lil suspect. I’m pretty sure in coming moments we can expect Nene Leakes to post some sort of subliminal Tweet.
I’ll say this, Marlo Hampton knew exactly what she was doing when she posted this picture. I’ll leave it at at that.
What do y’all think?
I was on vacation when all hell broke loose at the taping of The Real Housewives of Atlanta season 6 reunion taping. By now, I’m sure every one knows that Porsha knocked the sh!t out of Kenya. Quiet as its kept, Phaedra’s a$$ should have jumped up off the couch and hit the b!sh too, but that another story. Anyway, what some of you may not know is that Porsha was immediately asked to leave the premises. Porsha hit Kenya within the first hour of taping. That being said, don’t expect to see much of Porsha on the reunion show.
Fast forward to today, after the dust has settle, those close to the situation are saying Porsha may have f&cked herself. BRAVO does not play that. The contracts for each of the housewives is written pretty tightly and spells out to the letter what they can and cannot do. BRAVO has had no hesitation in the past on acting on breaches of contract. Remember Adrienne Maloof from Beverly Hills? Well her contract stated she had to do the reunion show. Mama chose not to show up, and they fired her a$$. With that, the housewives contracts stipulate in some fashion that they are not to get violent with one another, not allowed to take out restraining orders against one another or bring forth any other legal action that will hinder production, etc. I’m sure we can all agree that diving on a b!tch constitutes getting violent.
Porsha’s job is in jeopardy, however many people close to the situation feel like her actions were very much justified. Kenya has been antagonizing this woman for the last two years and taking unwarranted jabs at her whenever she got the opportunity. To top things off, Kenya brought a wack a$$ crown and staff (bedazzled stick) to the taping of the reunion and was waving it around in Porsha’s face. I would have beat that b!tches ass too.
The entire cast is really feeling for Porsha right now and not featuring Kenya at all. So much so, that they are wiling to work as a collective to try and protect Porsha’s peach and get rid of Kenya’s a$$. Catch these T’s Continue reading
Let the shade begin. After catching serious flack for last night’s episode. Nene has taken to her Bravo blog to provide a few extra details on the altercation between her and Marlow, and to address a few of her cast mates individually. Catch these T’s
The Bailey Bowl: I love a good challenge, so when I was told to gather up a team and meet on a field for some fun and competition, I was there! We started off by having some good competitive fun. Then here comes the BS!
Look, there’s a lot I could say, but instead I’ll just say this: Kandi, you have never seen me walk away from a fight and you have never seen me physically fight either have you? My son was at this event, and as much as I would like to be Mama Joyce and take my shoe off and hit somebody or drag someone down the street, I would never stoop so low to the gutter with my son around, so you are right! I know how to respect myself enough to walk away from something that no longer serves me, helps me grow, or makes me happy. In life you have to pick your battles; everything isn’t worth fighting for or worth the emotional investment. ~Nene Leakes
See what else Nene had to say. Continue reading
I really hate to see friendships falling apart because of reality tv. Chile it is happening across all the standing black reality television shows. Nonetheless, the drama makes for good tv and makes for excellent blog talk. Everyone is all abreast of the Kenya, Nene, Marlow drama, so I’ll save time and skip giving you guys the back story. After last night’s episode of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta aired, in a true grown lady fashion, Nene & Marlo both took to Twitter to air out their grievances. Nene was going for broke with the tea she was spilling. Marlow fought back, and of course Miss Flea Market USA had to chime in. Catch these T’s Continue reading
