NeNe Leakes says shes pissed off about Bravo’s portrayal of her during the 2nd season of the hit series The Real Housewives of Atlanta and she’s not taking it anymore! Leakes, who is shown during the final episode arguing with fellow castmates Kandi Burruss and allegedly choking Kim Zolciak says it’s not fair that she’s being made out the be the villain. In a recent Essence interview, NeNe lets it all out about how the show is scripted (no surprise) and edited in a way that’s not flattering to her true self:
Why are you so upset about the show’s portrayal of you now?
Yes, I know that’s what they do, but the first season they didn’t edit me. It happened this season because we have a different show runner and this season has been a lot more planned and scripted. Last season they just let us go which made for a great show, but this time around, the show runner will say something like, you need to go over there and talk to Kim about “Tardy for the Party.” They’ve also been making a lot of changes to the sequence of events. For instance, we all arrived to Sheree’s fashion show late because there was a huge car accident, and when we arrived they all ushered us to our seats and the show began immediately, but when you see the episode they show me talking to Kandi which is not what happened.
The two shared the stage during VH1’s DIVA’s the other night, while a fight was brewing behind the scenes. It appears that Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kim Zolciak feels that castmate NeNe Leakes has been tryna take credit for penning her top 10 dance hit “Tardy For the Party” and makes no qualms about it during her red carpet interview. Kim states that she was quite “disturbed” by NeNe’s claims and says that her 9 year old daughter wrote the song along with her music instructor:
Of course you already know that Mrs. Leakes was’t gonna let that slide…and she stated her rebuttal quick fast in a hurry while at the same event: Continue Reading…

Super celebrity photographer Derek Blanks never ceases to amaze me! During this season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Derek took on the challenge of creating his signature Alter Ego scenarios for the cast members of Bravo’s most popular show. The photos were shot earlier this year but kept under wraps until the airing of last night’s show. Each housewife portrayed images thought up by fellow castmate NeNe Leakes. They’re all simply hilarious! Sheree’ Whitfield (above), widely recognized for her “7 figure settlement” statement during the first season of the show is photographed robbing herself at an ATM, while Lisa Wu-Hartwell (below) is shot portraying good vs. evil by stealing cookies from herself.
The crowd favorite, NeNe Leakes, poked fun at her former stripper self by portraying a stripper vs. a goodie two shoes in Magic City: Continue Reading…
