NeNe the “Housewife” bails on Fox

nene-leakesNeNe Leakes, a cast member on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” spiked an interview with a local Fox News affiliate in New York just before it was to begin, TMZ reports.

Leakes has been keeping her Twitter followers updated on her every move during her trip to promote her book and the show with posts like, “Still grinding in rainy NYC! Book signing in Harlem today! Hue-man bookstore at 6 p.m.! Show some love New York.”

She hasn’t made any mention of the scotched show, but “sources on the set tell TMZ that she realized it was a FOox show just a few minutes before her appearance,” the celeb site reported. It also said witnesses overheard her saying “she hates the network” and was troubled by a recent report by Fox 5 Atlanta.

Leakes made unwanted headlines recently after her son Bryson Bryant was arrested for a minor pot possession charge in Gwinnett County.

She’s tackled that matter head-on, tweeting on Wednesday, “I know my parenting job is never done but tough love is ordered by the judge! The judge in this case is me!”

So one of the shallow housewives of the embarrassing show by same name ditches a TV interview because she doesn’t like a report recently aired? Ok, why is this news? Even more troubling, why would anyone watch the show or care about the lives of such people? Let’s replace this hour with those who lead meaningful and inspirational lives. Her son charged with possession of illegal substance…duh.

Alan, Don’t be so soul-less. By the way, the black leadership made Atlanta what it is today. Most blacks don’t die by the gun. Thank you. Stupid is as stupid say. Stupid.

Nene looks great. I enjoy watching the show. I hope Housewives of D.C. has at least two black women on the show. All the other Housewives are lacking diversity.

You know, I’ve never thought much of that show as I thought too many of those women didn’t present themselves in a very good light. But now hearing that NeNe hates Fox gives me a new level of respect for her. I’d pay her expenses if she’d just go on the O’Lielly, Hannity, or Beck shows just to spit in their faces and tell those creeps what slimeballs they are.

I feel bad for Nene’s son because he has to deal with the embarassing antics of his mother. It appears that she has deluded herself to believe that she has class, but her actions show otherwise. Being loud, obnoxious, manipulative, attention-starved, and envious are ugly character traits. I find it humorous that she gets offended by public opinion, yet she chooses she showcase herself in a public arena. I don’t think she’s attractive at all internally nor externally. I also find it embarassing when she attempts to brag about things that are just not revelant to alot of people, but I guess you would have to be on a certain level to knwo that, and she has yet to reach that level.

Good God look at that picture, that’s awful. What you have there folks is a former exotic dancer who caught the eye of one of her loyal customers, Greg, so she went for it thinking she could stop picking up dollar bills of the floor after a show. That’s the only “socialite” in Atlanta……oh wait she lives in Gwinett….that rents. Doesn’t have the bucks to live on our side of town……boo hoo.

What gets me is these women do not understand that people see this show and think that this is how ATL women are. When all of these women are really transplants that dont have a clue what Southern Hospitality is all about. Only the new lady and the one that got put off are real. The rest are a joke with money. If they were broke they would be ghetto trash, Wanna bees (black), and hood-rats.

HOUSEWIVES give marriage a bad name. HOUSEWIVES give women a bad name. HOUSEWIVES give all of humanity a bad name. These are worthless beings. They lack the sense to be embarrassed and ashamed of themselves. I’m betting all of them are public (government) school educated.

It this doesn’t prove once and for all that the bias in the media is real. This was a human being making a choice to bail on the show because of politics. I’m sure that would not have happened if the network was NBC, ABC, CBS or CNN.

Carol says Racist, Racist, Racist !!! Never mind that the person we’re talking about about is a former stripper/hooker. Has very little brains. Can’t speak in a coherent sentence. Pretends she has money but rents her dwelling and was evicted from her last home for not paying the rent. Her kid is on dope and looks like a hoodlum. She carries herself like a streetwalker. And finally, she’s simply a sperm deposit bank.

Too all u haters…leave NeNe alone…..she has a right to do, say & refuse anything she wants to b/c that’s the AMERICAN way!!!! Everyone hating,but at least she’s getting paid no matter what she is doing…I met her once in the mall and she was very polite….I agree with her about FOX!!!! it does not mean I’m racist…but FOX comes off to be a channel that does not sit well with me. NeNe does have brains..or she would have not made it this far….she has brains b/c she knows her next step.

She is an idiot, a breeder, who “raised-reared” a kid who was stupid enough to have dope on him while visiting a friend who was already in jail. That in itself shows you the mentality of the individuals concerned. The “Bell Curve” at its finest!

She revealed her true self by bailing on the interview. She always hypes her image up of someone who is very opinionated and not scared of anyone, yet she knows she doesn’t have the brain power to go on national tv and answer hardball questions. At least she’s keeping it real by understanding which league she belongs to: the Open Legs League!

NeNe she really needs to stop it! I really think she’s fake she always have something negative to say about someone. As far as the show it was good in the first season! but who wants to sit around and what a bunch of women bragg about the cash they have! To me the only ones who had some class was Kandi & Lisa.
