Nene Leakes gave the Real Housewives of Atlanta girls a piece of her mind on this week’s episode after they showed up to a dinner party at NeNe’s a whole three hours after scheduled time! NeNe is taking to her Bravo blog, where she explains why she was so upset. She acknowledges that her tone could’ve been different, and also calls Kandi a fatty, basically! NeNe writes:
It’s been a while since we last chatted! This episode was all about the ladies visiting me in LA, which I really looked forward to! When our show stops filming a lot of these ladies stop working, but I’m blessed to have the other jobs and opportunities that I do, one being The New Normal! My work schedule is Monday through Friday all day every day, and we wrap whenever we finish, which can even be midnight. In order for me to get a calendar work day off, I have to be cleared through my producers. These ladies knew this was the only time I could have the dinner party, and they knew in advance.
With that said, I was very excited for the ladies to visit me, and if you’re anything like me, when you’re having guests you’re running around like a chicken with its head cut off trying to make things perfect! I hired a chef, wait staff, bartender, and a bar back. I wanted it perfect. I know we have certain girls who are notorious for being extremely late, so much so that I planned in my mind that they would show up by 10 pm. When I got the call at 11:40 pm, I felt totally disrespect and hurt that they would even do this to me after all my planning and asking for time off work! When I watched the show back, maybe my tone could have been different, and I accept that, but this was a dinner party planned especially for them! I had five other important guests that I wanted them to meet, but three had already left by the time they arrived.
Gregg, being the gentleman that he is, offered to give a to-go plate to the hungriest of the group, Kandi, who needs to stay prayed up! From what I could see, she had an attitude from the beginning. Why even come on a trip if you’re going to pick everything apart? You can’t make a wrong right, and the last thing she needs to be thinking about after midnight is Pink’s and Fat Burger! That’s for-rel-yal!
One of my issues with NeNe this episode was how she was late to the improv class that Kenya had set up the day after the dinner party! NeNe explains in her blog that she was late to give the girls a taste of their own medicine, plus, she insinuates the girls are envious of her success:
The next day was the Groundling, which I purposely showed up late for to give them a dose of their own medicine. But after talking to Gregg, I promised to hold no grudges and continued to try and make the LA trip special for the girls. So we head over to Paramount Studios, which I was reluctant to do, because I know how hard it is for people to be happy for your success, especially those that wish they could be doing the same thing. But I shared anyway!
NeNe also calls out Kenya’s name dropping and points out her funniest moments of the episode! Check out the blog in its entirety HERE.
Do you think NeNe really was late to the improv to “show the girls” what she felt like the night before? Is NeNe too over her head assuming that the girls aren’t happy for her success?
