...but don't support her
NeNe Pops Back At The HATERS
& Asks Why Blacks Support Kim K. & Not HER
Nov 28 | by Natasha
NeNe Leakes has some words for the haters...especially those who are quick to support someone like successful-from-a-sex-tape chick Kim Kardashian, but completely critical of NeNe's talents & career.
Check out how she's calling out the black community, plus, how the talented Amel Larrieux is prepping for a comeback...
"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star NeNe gave a telling interview to The Daily Beast about the hate she's received after covering the Power Issue of EBONY magazine.
Whether it was the fact she was being recognized as "powerful" or the
pic of her in a tub of diamonds some called tacky--everybody had an
But the reality star let none of it get to her, an actually called
folks to task for supporting sex-tape-comeuppance-publicity-hungry star
Kim Kardashian....but not NeNe:
“It’s true and I know you’ve heard it a million times,
[African Americans] just don’t support one another,” she says. “But it’s
OK for you to go pick up a magazine cover with Kim Kardashian. She’s my
girl. We are cool. We talk. We do drinks and all of that. But her story
ain’t no different than mine. You know what I mean? I might’ve worked
at the strip club, but she made a sex tape.”
NeNe also explained that the flack she caught for making EBONY's
Power Issue cover, came mostly from the African American community. But
she's not letting the hate stop her one bit:
“I absolutely deserve to be on the cover...This cover is
about money, power, and respect. And it’s about a come-up story and I’m
the one that had that story this year … Not only did I come out as a
reality star that was very boisterous and vivacious and outspoken and
all those things. I flipped that into money and respect. And a lot of
people can’t do that.
“But listen to me, definitely all of the negative feedback definitely
came from my own; African Americans were the ones that were the most
negative,” she continues, adding, “And it’s so funny to me because I
would call [the editor] over at Ebony and she would say ‘Girl please,
glass houses. That’s all it is. They don’t want to see you on the cover,
they don’t really understand the reason why you’re on the cover, they
don’t know your story.’”
We must say, chick has a few great points. With her stints on hit tv
shows "Glee" and "The New Normal," it's clear she does have actual
talent as an actress. And at some point, folks will possibly respect
that and will not call her a famous for nothing chick with no
talent--like some other people we know.
