NeNe Leakes: A Miserable Crab Who's Threatened by Other Women
Here's why she comes off as insecure
I had a wonderful time trash-talking on Twitter during last night’s "Real Housewives of Atlanta" reunion episode. And that was only Part One. First, I must admit that I am 100% #TeamKandi, so the following statements may seem bias. It is what it is.
Anyway, my main observation is that NeNe Leakes is a crab. That’s not a memo from Captain Obvious because it’s something I’ve always observed, I've just never really wrote about it. When she's being interviewed or doing things on her own career-wise, she puts on this persona that is vibrant and full of life. But when she’s around other women, who can be seen as competition, she’s usually raining misery and trying to diminish whoever it is that’s making her feel threatened. This makes me believe that she’s extremely insecure and easily intimidated by other women. She pretends to be uber-confident and secure until she is faced with those who make her nervous, and then her true colors get revealed. The woman is in pain, whether she will admit it or not.
During last night’s show, host Andy Cohen asked Kandi to talk about her sex toy line and NeNe sat quietly, all the while making salty faces until he finally had to ask her why she seemed so against Kandi's new business venture. The Crab claimed that sex toys simply weren’t her "thing," in a judgmental manner, of course. But Kandi, picking up on NeNe's bitterness, called her out; she couldn’t believe that someone who used to strip could be so judgmental. It didn’t go over well.

But it's not just Kandi that got NeNe’s attitude. She took on Sheree, too; their fight ultimately resulted in trading insults: "Fix your body!" vs. "Fix your face!" Also, Google NeNe's run-ins with Star Jones on “Celebrity Apprentice” for more proof. Her only defense is to get loud, angry, and argumentative. However, the loudest person in the room is usually the weakest.
This is not to bash NeNe, though. When she’s being the vibrant and fun version of herself, she’s actually pretty cool. Now, if only she’ll get the therapy she needs. And if she is getting therapy, then maybe more sessions should be in the works.
In other news, check out the following clips of Part Two of the “RHOA” reunion special:
"Black Baby"-Gate: Kandi clarifies what she and Cynthia really said about Kim: Would she or would she not hold a Black baby had she went on the trip to Africa? Sheree, of course, tries (badly) to defend herself for snitching and spreading the wrong information to Kim. The record really gets set straight this time.
Hole vs. Hole: Kim and Marlo engage in verbal warfare about who’s a whore and who’s not. One dated a married man, the other is being accused of being an escort. You be the judge.
NeNe pretending to not give a shit. For the record, she does a bad job at feigning indifference.
