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.
You may remember Kim Kearney as the loud mouthed contestant who considered herself a hybrid of Puffy & Oprah (PoPrah) on the first season of VH1’s “I Want To Work For Diddy.” Not long after her elimination from the show, I revealed a video montage of Poprah’s thin moments
on the site.
In addition to Kim hosting a short-lived talk show, she was also an aspiring recording artist in the 90’s who performed under the moniker “Tempest.” Fortunately for us…that moment was captured in time with the emergence of music videos. I dunno if “Tempest” ever made it to MTV but her videos were definitely worthy of a shot.
Check out two vintage music videos from Kim/Poprah/Tempest below as well as a brief update on what she’s doing now: Continue Reading…
During Mike Tyson’s initial appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Show, he expressed a bit of remorse over an incident with fellow fighter Evander Holyfield during their 1997 heavyweight title fight, where Mike bit Evander twice, once in each ear. The incident went down as one of the most talked-about moments in boxing history and the two have never officially discussed what happened. Evander contacted Oprah and asked if the two could reunite face to face on her show. O obliged and brought Mike back within a week of his interview for a historic interview between the two former foes.
Evander is still missing a small part of his ear but says he has moved past his anger:
“It was just shocking. It wasn’t really as bad as they made it out to be. The most important thing is that things happen for a reason, but it’s how you handle it,” he says. “At that moment, I was very angry. But eventually, when it’s all over, you realize that you gain more than you lost. … The most important thing for me was to forgive, and I forgave him and I was ready to move on.”

Boxing rivals Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield (photographed above during the 2009 ESPY Awards) are to scheduled to reunite in an upcoming episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” Harpo Productions announced Wednesday that the two fighters will appear on Friday’s live episode for a historic appearance together.? If you recall, Holyfield was forever changed by Tyson after their June 28, 1997 bout at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas where Tyson was disqualified after biting off part of Holyfield’s right ear during their WBA heavyweight title fight.
Tyson expressed a bit of remorse about the ear-biting incident during his one on one with Oprah this week, where he admitted that his initial apology to Holyfield was insincere.? Oprah will now play referee as she gives Tyson a chance to man-up to his actions in front of her live audience. In the upcoming episode, Harpo Productions says Tyson will also take questions from the audience.
The Tyson/Holyfield episode airs Friday, October 16th. Check local listings for times.
