Many were surprised when Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes kept her cool about Kenya Moore after Kenya Moore got aggressive with her on Sunday’s premiere episode. NeNe took to her blog to open up about Kenya’s foolishness and explain her side of the confrontation! Check it out below
“The Housewives of Atlanta are back! For those of you who know me, I don’t like to give long blogs or long speeches. I like to hit the points and move on, so here goes!
The episode definitely delivered the action you guys like to see! As many of you know, Gregg and I have remarried. We had a beautiful ceremony filled with love, tears, happiness, and joy. If you have ever been a bride, then you know the high stress involved to plan and deliver a dream wedding. My wedding was no exception. I would go so far as to say mine was even more stressful, because I was getting married on TV and the world was invited to attend.
I invited family, friends, business associates, and some people out of respect! Kenya fit in the respect category, because I didn’t know her well, but we were on the show together. Now whether she attended or not wasn’t important to me, but out of respect, I thought she would at least respond to me (and not on Twitter)! She responded on Twitter by saying congrats to us, which showed me she wanted the world to know she was invited and also wanted them to know she didn’t attend. The motives people have are sometimes crystal clear! Remember I told you “motives”…we will revisit this again later in the season! Wink wink.
The Bailey Agency Opening: Yeah, my girl Cynthia is moving on to a bigger and better location! Just to bring you up to speed, Gregg and I had been married two weeks when Cynthia held her event. As you saw, Kenya visited with Cynthia and told her she thought her “friends” would have reached out to her during her time of eviction (referring to me, Kandi, and Cynthia). Foolishness! Now you need to practice what you preach, Miss Kenya. Do onto others as you would have them do onto you! I already told you Kenya didn’t reach out to me.
Listen I am a smart girl. When I enter a room, I can feel the energy. I knew once Kenya entered that the foolishness was about to begin, so I tried to remove myself by taking a tour of Cynthia’s new space but ended up bumping into Kenya anyway. She approached me about why Walter was invited to my wedding and why I hadn’t reached out to her during her eviction drama. So let me answer! Surely someone who claims to be a top actress, producer, and director who is selling DVDs everywhere is not evicted! Besides this was not national news. This was on a few blogs. I didn’t feel the need to reach out about gossip. Why I invited Walter is simple: I was getting married! I will repeat, I was getting married, which means I invite whoever the hell I choose!
Now let me say this before I end. My Twitter blew up and my phone just about caught on fire when Kenya grabbed my ear. I have come a long ways baby! I know when somebody wants a reaction out of me for their own purposes. I know water is free in America, but so many of these girls are thirsty! I’m not willing to risk what I have, what I have worked for, and what I have become for somebody that has been on a 20 year hiatus! Now had that been me all up in somebody’s personal space, I would be called a bully, violent, aggressive, mean, and everything else, but it’s OK for people to violate me?”
Thoughts on what NeNe had to say? Who’s side are you on?
