    Re: The Real Housewives of Atlanta

    Good to see that someone who came from nothing really can "make it" in celebrityland. NeNe sure is a piece of work; sometimes entertaining, always a nutjob. She's so delighted to make money- that's apparently all it takes to make her happy. Well, that and spending it. I still say we'll all be paying for her stay at a Medicaid nursing home one day. She has no apparent ability to build wealth.

    Nene was cast as a regular in the series called the New Normal. It was put on NBC's schedule for the fall. Not sure if she is leaving the RHOA yet.

    Funny. NeNe doesn't seem to have the business savvy that Kim or Candy have (and Kim's wig line is still TBD) but she doesn't seem to spend excessively - or as excessively as some. I'm glad Andy Cohen told Kim he was worried about her blowing through Kroy's money - and with Kim's response. Hopefully it was a wake-up call for all the women on this show.

    Thanks! I'll watch. I hope she does well. I think NeNe likes being the star almost more than money. She should be entertaining.

    I won't be watching. Nene has become a haughty, rude, unkind, self-centered woman.
    She may be the flavor of the month right now but it won't last. She's not that entertaining, nor does she have any particular talent.
    I'm sure she'll be back on RH of A because she will want face-time any place she can get it.
    She criticizes people for doing the exact same thing she has done in the past.
    Yep, don't like her at all.

    I'm more amazed that various producers even want her on any of their shows. She's already proven herself to be a despicable human being, so why they'd want their shows to be associated with a loudmouthed ignorant person like her is beyond me.

    Nene may not come off on well on a reality show which most times turns out to be unreal. Nene however has not had anyone call her out on her behavior when she has made guest appearances and other things. Imo makes me wonder how much of The RHOA is truly producer induced drama. I am happy for her and wish her good things in the future.

    Frankly until tv stops working with the likes of one Charlie Sheen who is truly gruesome. Nene can do as she pleases.

    Anyone can do as they please, that's not the point I'm making. I simply questioned why anyone would want someone around who has proven to be completely disruptive. I completely believe Nene to be the big bully she comes across as on TV--mostly because she's insecure with herself no matter how much she prances around with her designer handbags hanging off her arm like she's the cat's meow. And while she may be kissing the asses of Hollywood producers and fellow cast mates on the shows she guest staring on now, in time she'll be causing a ruckus there too. And while Charlie Sheen has his issues, obviously, I don't recall seeing Charlie getting up in anyone's face--literally, and hollering and screaming at them I don't think there's any comparison between the two. Charlie only wishes he was half the man Nene is.

    On Real housewives, I cannot stand Nene. But I actually liked her on Glee.

    What the entertainment world worships about Charlie Sheen is a mystery to me. I think he's a delusional creep.
