New Queen of Atlanta, Kenya Moore, Drags Nathaniel Leakes In New Blog
was a lot of fun! Being from Detroit, I often went to the roller
skating rink. I can skate backwards, forwards, and even twirl on skates,
LOL! This brings back great memories of carefree, fun times with no
drama. All the women were able to move past the pillow talk night and no
one tried to place the blame solely on me except for NeNe and Phaedra.
and I are both survivors of domestic violence. I, particularly, have a
penchant for any charity that supports women and helps young girls
thrive. Saving Our Daughters (SOD) is one I too firmly believe in and
thought would help a lot of girls in need with their struggles in life.
Previously, I promised NeNe that I would throw an event to benefit her
favorite charity. That I did with no ulterior motive.
may not do everything perfectly right, but my heart was in the right
place. Although I do not owe NeNe anything, out of respect for our
friendship at the time, I only wanted to do something kind for her and
to benefit a great charity -- a win-win situation. This was my sweeping
gesture…my olive branch. However, you don’t take an olive branch and
beat someone with it.
Each and every girl received the same
invitation outlining my event details, dress code, program, etc. The
electronic invitation my team used tracked all the invitations.
Therefore, we could see that NeNe not only RECEIVED the evite but READ
the invitation as well. However, she chose not to respond. Instead of
calling me with questions, she contacted the charity and confirmed their
support for the event weeks prior. She also heard from Cynthia and
Marlo about the event, other Housewives, and PR staff. Does this sound
like a woman who didn’t know anything about the event as she claims? If
you believe that lie, I have a bridge I want to sell you.
Initially, I wanted to surprise her with my decision to make her the guest of honor, which is why I didn’t personally call her.
However, as rumblings went on about her not getting a call from me, I
immediately called her and received no response resulting in me texting
her. To my dismay, she furiously responded in a nasty, disrespectful
manner. Again, all knowledge of the event took place prior to the event.
Once NeNe did learn, she made her own choice how to conduct herself.
commend Cynthia for the class act that she is and her many attempts to
protect NeNe’s image by advising her to do the right thing and attend.
Alternatively, NeNe could have declined coming altogether, sent someone
to accept on her behalf, or come and graciously accept her honor and ask
people to be generous and donate, then, speak to me privately later.
Yet, she did none of the above. Proving money can’t buy you class. (Is this a shoutout to LuAnn's flawless bop?)
is no queen bee. Actual queens are dignified, beloved, regal, and
gracious, and don’t walk into a room with their noses in the air… none
of the aforementioned is applicable to NeNe. When she arrived, she
never spoke to me, but she had her nose in the air the entire time, and
never once exhibited a shred of humility, decorum, or class. After she
snatched the microphone from me all the guests gasped. What’s most
disturbing than anything is her “I am bigger and better than anyone”
I have only been a friend to her. But clearly
NeNe is the one who doesn’t know how to be a friend and ices anyone who
goes against her. She disrespects her friend’s husband by telling Peter
to stay out of women’s business, but it was OK when she set me up so
that Christopher could verbally attack me over my issue with his woman. The
truth is NeNe resents me for her own egotistical reasons and the world
sees it. Her light has dimmed and she is clinging on to a title of being
#queenbee . The truth is, there is enough light for us all to shine.
“None of these bitches here are on my level I’m on” –NeNe Leakes
Well, NeNe is correct. We are all in fact above this petty, hate-filled, ego-tripping-one-woman-show-paranoid-hateful-drama
of hers. We do not think we are better than other Housewives, because
we all are on the same show the last time I checked. Oh, speaking of
being above someone…Kandi is a Grammy award-winning songwriter and
astute businesswoman and actual “rich bitch,” Cynthia is an accomplished
model and businesswoman, and Phaedra is an attorney, and I am a former
Miss USA and the only one in the group with an actual crown. Unlike
NeNe, I can’t be dethroned as I’m a part of history. With that said,
NeNe is a former stripper with a few short-lived gigs in Hollywood given
to her by one man. My scoreboard says that makes HER not on our level.
I’m not sure about you, but I’m looking forward to the future of RHOA,
not the past. BLOOP! (The Porsha shade...)
do not penalize Saving Our Daughters for any negative attention they
have received due to the tasteless behavior at the event and donate
today (SavingOurDaughter.o rg). We can try to do the right thing. This
is one way to show your support and stand up for what’s decent. Thanks
in advance. Our daughters need us.
Heeeeey Divas and Divos! Yes, I know, we’ve been out of touch these past couple weeks, but you’re always on my mind. Your girl has just been laying low til all the dust settles from the latest RHOA drama. I was chillin with my girl at the All-Star Game, eating too many Po’boys and drinking way too much on Bourbon Street! But let’s get to it… Ready to dish?
Well, my time on the show this week was brief and unfortunately, I couldn’t be there for the charity event. I was already scheduled to be out of town for another engagement, but definitely supported Ms. Kenya and the very worthwhile cause she wanted to help. Let me start by saying that while Kenya and I are not best friends, (we only met recently) I refuse to let others determine whether or not I should befriend her. She has done nothing but support me and whenever we’re together we always have a grand ole time. I don’t need to sit in judgment of her… She has enough judges and juries already! As far as I’m concerned, we’re cool! Time will tell how it all works out in the long run, won’t it?
As I said, when I first started spending time with NeNe, (who initially was not too happy about me being on RHOA, but then “appeared” to take me under her wing), I didn’t let the warnings from Kandi and Phaedra deter me from giving her the benefit of the doubt. I looked up to her as a big sister since she and my oldest sister, (who is 8 years my senior and full of wisdom) are the same age. I really thought she understood where I came from and how I was trying to change my life for the better, just as she had done. We all have a past, but we can choose to leave it behind us. (I guess I should have listened to the ladies, huh? Sorry…)
I’ve been called an opportunist, often! But honestly, who among us does not take advantage of opportunities that improve the quality of our lives and allow us to realize our dreams? Who among us doesn’t use our gifts, brains, beauty and talents to our benefit? Let she/he who lives in the glass house, (of delusions) throw the first stone at me. Unlike some of us, I don’t believe that there are people who “are not on my level!” Last I heard, God created all of us equal.
That “taste” of Hollywood is like fresh, sweet ice cream. The only problem is, eventually it will melt and the “taste” will fade leaving not even a linger of flavor… Perhaps some of us should learn the meaning of humility because just like an elevator, the people you put off, might be the same ones you want to hold the door when you’re trying to get back on… Ijs!
