“Real Housewives” NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey party at the Buckhead W

533456_3570693378604_1011078506_3184317_1138795158_nNeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” made the scene in Buckhead last night.

The invite-only party held at the Buckhead W was hosted by the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau, which presumably aims to lure Atlantans there.

The evening featured Miami-inspired appetizers, signature Bacardi cocktails, tunes by DJ Irie – and a photo booth. The “Housewives” stepped inside to show their love for the sunny city to our south.

No word on whether Bravo cameras were there to capture the magic.

I wish they had attended a party in New York and stayed there. I can’t stand those two, Cynthia is riding NeNe coattails and that’s not saying much.

Sad commentary about Atlanta when these two “celebrities” are the only ones noted in Buzz.

I love the Atlanta Housewives, so I read everyting that is printed about them. Question for all the Haters, why do you take the time to read about a show that you claim to hate. If you trurely dislike the show so much, you not ony take the time to read it, you take the time to express your dislike. Now whats wrong with that? When the internet is loaded with articles on various subject matters. You people are jealous, And are looking for something negative about the ATLhousewives, to make you feel better. How sad is that?

It is so sad that they kept either of these two over Sheree. Sheree was actually very nice. She was the closest to being a Real Housewife of Atlanta, since she lives in 30342 ( which is an Altanta/Sandy Springs zip code). By the way Chataue Sheree has been framed and has the roof deck on now. It looks to be about 8,000 to 10,000 sf. Much bigger than NeNe’s rental house way up in Forsyth County! And Cynthia’s little East Atlanta 2,500 sf. highwater house, that was either a builder short sale or is a rental. Pheadera does live in a $400K Smynra 30080 circa 2000 house.

My daughter and her AP Human Geography Class were doing a class project going to the Atlanta Dogwood Festival 2 years ago. Their we saw NeNe and this woman with Short hair we had no idea who she was. NeNe kept making them stop the camera’s so they could powder her poc marked face. It was at that time my daughter and her classmates got a lesson that this is scripted drama, and not unscripted reality. It turned out that other women was Cynthia Bailey. My daugher, her classmates ( who were a very diverse group of 4 and myself, where featured in the background of this shot, they also cut and pasted us into another shot ( it was a long distance shot so they didn’t have to pay us, but we could still tell it was us.)

Don’t be hatin’ on Ne Ne! Inside, she’s really a good person and is probably tired of all of the crap she has to go through with the other castmates. I know I would be, and I would have slapped that wig off tardy party girl by now.

i also agree with diva, if you don’t like the show or my girl, nene, don’t read or post negative blogs just
because you’re jealous and hating. plenty other internet sites to visit. for the one who likes sheree
and her two faced, throw under bus self, you are far and few, not many people like her. she want to
have the best and wear high priced clothes, while her kids walk around looking a hot mess. that’s
why she was fired and i am soooooo glad. now i don’t have to look in that he-man face of hers.

NeNe and Cynthia do what REAL FRIENDS do. I’m happy for and proud of both of them.

Diva and Faith
I agree with you both. People don’t like success, especially when success is found amongst black women. All the women in the housewives shows show both their bad and good sides, but when black people do what normal people do, we are scrutinize harsher especially by black people. Why do one person have to represent the whole race. Can we just do us like everybody else. NeNe and Cynthia take advantage of this opportunity because they don’t last forever. Everyone else who want to criticise, get a life, keep it moving, or shut your mouths.

To Diva and all of those defending this trash: You really like gossip about Z-level reality TV people? That is very very sad and makes me weep for the future of this city. Get your own life and stop trying to live through other people’s lives that lack class and cash paychecks from low-income people buying into their worthless existence. Your vapid reality is seeded deeply in the lack of self-confidence that leads you to this stuff.
