    Not scary to me. I like tall people, short people; what I don't care much for are ignorant people like NeNe Leakes. Maybe what I really don't like about her is that she's gained such notoriety by being a flashy dunce. Doesn't seem right !

    Ahhh.... I don't agree. Moxey she has. Aggressive, yes. Attitude, yep. Aspirations, for sure. Energy, check. Wannabe, oh yeah. But - intellectual capacity, nope! If she had brains she'd be turning that "million dollar paycheck" into fifty million instead of buying $1,000. Louboutin shoes.

    I am 6feet tall and I wear stilettos all the time. It's not the tall person's issues. It's the issues of the shorter people not being comfortable in her own skin. whats wrong with it? If Nene can afford a $1000 pair of shoes she can buy them if she wants to. I got some really cute sandalsand a handbag in Miami last summer paid $1500 and don't care what anyone else thinks. I say do you Nene. I so want to just shop in Marlo's handbag and shoe closet. I had a shoegasm just looking at it.lol

    It seems to me that it's much like rednecks and their huge truck tires. Nene appears to use the exaggerated height to intimidate others in order to compensate for her lack of education and intelligence. I'm not saying Nene is stupid, she isn't, but she certainly inhabits the middle-to-shallow end of the intelligence pool.
    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    Nothing personal, actually!
    My mother is short; and she is one of the most powerful people I know. She can scare the hell out of my husband.

    I think Brandi is beautiful. If she could get rid of the drama, I could jump on the fan boat.
    You can do it!

    All these women run around in heels like they are sneakers. I wish I could do that. My wimpy feet won't let me. Painful

    Plus, it's not good for your skeleton! Just watched a news show piece on that this morning.

    Not good for your body, especially bad for your feet. In my twenties when the podiatrists said medium heels at most, I took her advice. When I look around at sandalfeet waiting in line in stores, the lumps and knobs are horrifying; so darned many women have ugly, ruined feet from heels.

    However, if NeNe wants to wear 8" heels, what the heck- it really does look sexy and men love it! I just don't think NeNe can afford designer shoes; her kindamillion $$$ income so far doesn't warrant that kind of spending unless her plan is to go broke trying to look rich.

    And everything builds up from the feet......the knees, the hips, the back. I have learned that if you fix the feet, you can fix a lot of other problems. It's all connected. Robin Roberts admitted that the minute her morning show goes off the air, she's in her flat, fuzzy slippers. Oprah does the same thing. They do look good, but I can't see them being worth the problems. Let the MEN wear them!

    Oboy do I agree with you. At yoga, women are constantly trying to uncurl their gnarled toes, pulling out and trying to stretch hammertoes, flexing around those huge bunion things. Then they slip into their super-high heels and hobble away.

    Stilleto heels are a big deal on all the RH shows- so we're looking at women who are in pain much of the time. Hey, no wonder they're snarling at one another They're miserable. Fortunately the platform stilleto is nearing the end of its fashion life; IMHO it's a homely look. Off the foot those gleaming, sparkly, sleek stilletos look quite grand, huh... but oh how miserable they must be! The clip Andy plays of NeNe hobbling from a car to a doorway - that back and forth clip he keeps showing - especially ridiculous!!

    Oh, but look, I'm snarling at the RHs all the time, and my feet are snuggy and comfortable all the time! Have to laugh!
