NeNe Leakes Reveals She Reached Out To RHOA Cast Mates After Reunion Breakdown


Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes is taking to her final blog of the season to share her thoughts on her breakdown at the reunion. Leakes says it took a lot of courage for her to be vulnerable like she was and shares that she reached out to her cast mates to thank them for their support after the taping.

NeNe writes:

I always like to be true to myself and speak from my heart and I hope that you will feel me and that I don’t offend you. My exterior may come off tough to some but my heart is made of pure gold! I have overcome and conquered things that would have broken the average person.

My breakdown didn’t just come out of no where like some would like for you to think! It took courage and strength for me to drop my walls in front of women who had said the most ugliest things about me all season! Women who I feel honestly wanted to hurt me! Women who were 100% against me. Women who has shown me zero support. Women who has shown the utmost hate for me. I need you to understand what it took for me to put myself on display for all to see and how vulnerable I felt in that moment.

Honestly I never wanted to cry or feel vulnerable in front of people who don’t like me! (I’m crying as I write this) I understand that forgiveness is powerful which is why I wanted to let my walls down. I am not an abandoned woman! I am not a victim! I love my mother with every inch of me and I’m sure she wanted more for me than she could offer at the time! I didn’t understand that as a young girl but I understand that as a mother today!

MOVING ON……I reached out to majority of the ladies after the reunion to thank them for their support & kindness that day because they seemed to show support during my breakdown. But I find it hard to believe that some of their intentions were genuine and sincere! Certainly after something so serious some have continued with the nasty negativity in the press and on social media. Which makes it hard for me to trust or have any relationship with them.

Moving forward for me doesn’t mean having a friendship It just means that I’m past the bullshit & some people need the bullshit to survive on this show. I don’t! Cynthia We had our little chat that day and we have texted since then but again thank you! Claudia Thank you for keeping your word after we spoke. Phaedra and Porsha you guys have been just amazing all season long and you continue to be. Thanks to all of you who have tuned into the show season after season and supported me since day one and never wavered.

Stay fabulous,
Nene Leakes

  1. I think NeNe was going through a tremendous let-down after reaching the heights of being a Broadway star. Then to move past that and return to the pettiness of the Real Housewives has to be difficult. I think she was grieving. Broadway is a totally different environment.

  2. Why should the ladies care NeNe proved that she don’t care for no one but her own. Fake ass rude, disrespectful grown women. Lets fast forward when she’s on…….

  3. I love you girl and thank you for opening up your life to the world season after season. I learn so MUCH from you ladies.

    Not all of us think you’re any different than any other woman on the universe. We’re all a work in progress, flawed and still hustling. We all make mistakes. We all misjudge. We’re all trying to navigate life and love and carreers and motherhood and family. It’s just refreshing that you are genuine and honest in your quests. I love the fact that you apologize when you’re genuine with it and not just for ratings or for approval from people that don’t matter to the day to day operations of your life.

    I’m a true fan of REALNESS and you’re as real as they come. Good luck on your future endeavors – whether they’re the heights of Broadway or a stay at home mother. I wish you love, peace and happiness.

  4. I see no apology. I see her complimenting…herself… on her “courage, strength, and pure gold [heart]”. I see her thank them but not without a big “but” explaining why they were wrong. She has not one clue on how to be a decent human being.

  5. Nene as always, true to herself, true to her friends, true to her viewers. No pretenses whatever. Nene is as real as they come. Rooting for her all the way.

  6. She refuses to acknowledge Kenya’s support. Kenya, more than the others, can relate to her issues. So tired of Nene and her antics. She even got Dr. Jeff to suck her arse. Thank you Kandi for calling it like it is.

  7. That “breakdown” was staged for sympathy! No one likes her anymore. Kandi was right when she said Nene acted superior to the other ladies all season!
