NeNe Leakes needs a dose of humble pie. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star has been having tons of success in the sitcom world lately, and it's really going to her head. She has a recurring role on the super popular FOX series Glee and will soon make her debut as a regular in The New Normal.
Last season of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Sheree was accused of being jealous of NeNe, who is very open about the fact that she is a rich, rich woman. NeNe screamed at Sheree and kept reiterating how wealthy she was and even dropped Donald Trump's name into the conversation at one point. The whole scene was entirely tacky to watch. It's disappointing that the once happy-go-lucky housewife has turned into such a diva. Her behavior has completely changed since fans first met her.
Later in that same season, NeNe attended a party for Kandi's luxury intimate items which included tons of her fans from Twitter. NeNe was disgusted by the thought of mingling with mere Twitter followers and wasn't afraid to say it, which left a bad taste in the mouths of fans everywhere. NeNe has some nerve talking about her fans that way. If it weren't for the fans, would she be the successful, rich woman she is today?
Now, NeNe is going on the record to point out that most of her fellow housewives are jealous of all the success she's been having. She told SheKnows that although they have all congratulated her on her new gigs, she doubts that they mean it. "They have all said to me they're very happy for me. But as I've said many times, I felt a few of themÂ— or a couple of them were very happy for me and the others I just think they said it because it was the right thing to say. But I didn't really feel it."
It's very likely that she didn't 'feel it' because her co-stars are so over her behavior that they hate to even acknowledge her accomplishments. It's hard to be truly happy for someone so self absorbed and down right rude.
The couple that are happy for her would likely include her fellow Tall, Cynthia Bailey. Cynthia is more or less the only true friend NeNe has on the show at this point.
NeNe Leakes can be seen in The New Normal this fall on NBC.
