NeNe Leakes is one smart cookie, for a number of reasons. With her new spinoff I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding, she's made some surprising choices as well as some no-brainers. Did you catch them all? I sat down to watch episodes 1 and 2 last night and saw SO much behind the scenes as well as upfront drama. Let's discuss...

Personally I had a great time watching this -- it's fun to cover a show where you don't know the cast as well. I've met NeNe and Gregg but haven't spent much time with them, but once you've been on Reality TV certain things become OBVIOUS no matter what show you're watching.

The actual wedding planning takes a back seat to the drama between NeNe and Gregg repairing their relationship, and that's what makes this spinoff very different than Bethenny Getting MarriedDon't Be Tardy or any other Bravo weddings, plus I see a few other differences as well.

Watch the exclusive video for my take on the bridesmaids' drama, prenuptial agreements, "Communication Marination" and televised therapy. What happens when extended family members don't like what they see on TV, and how do real-life friends handle cast members? I discuss Dr. Jeff AND that crazy family blending session, and much more.

Don't forget to leave a comment below -- do you think that going back to Bravo after Glee and The New Normal is a step forward or back for NeNe?

Do you think NeNe is too hard on Gregg?
