'Real Housewives of Atlanta' Recap: Nene Leaks Makes a HUGE Mistake With Her Bestie!

Nene LeakesIt's crazy just how far Nene Leakes is willing to go to make sure her enemies recognize their place in the pecking order according to Madame Leakes. Last week, Nene was furious with Kenya Moore for inviting her to a charity gala in her honor...and not telling her about it. Fair enough, but Nene's declasse actions at said gala didn't make her look like the victim she actually was. The tide was beginning to turn against her, and this week, it crashed down and soaked everyone. "VERILY HAVE I SMOTE THEE" said Neptune, God of the seas. Then he was whisked away by an army of virile sea horses. It was pretty great. I hope you DVR'ed it.

Nene is losing more friends by the second. Her tumultuous relationship with her drama-loving bridesmaid Marlo Hampton has never been, you know -- easy. As my use of the word 'tumultuous' would indicate. This week, it looks like it's over altogether. 

Cynthia Bailey, for reasons I don't entirely understand, threw a sort of field-day for all of her friends. It lasted roughly five minutes before devolving into name calling and microphones being ripped from athletic-garb-wearing cast-members, who were hot to trot. Nene didn't invite Marlo to be on her team (because this is middle school.) Marlo pretended like it didn't bother her and tried to be happy to be on Kenya's team. This was probably her next mistake.

I'd bet money on Nene being pissed at Marlo for being friends with Kenya. I think that's genuinely her only crime. Marlo couldn't put up with the childishness for a moment more. She should have just left. Instead, she got into it with Nene who wouldn't even speak to her. I genuinely covered my mouth in shock. I know. I've entered a weird chapter of my life. Easily being taken aback by reality shows is part of that chapter. Marlo swears she won't speak to Nene again, Nene sauntered off mumbling about Donald Trump, and Kenya Moore kept talking about how she hoped this wasn't her fault. For once, Kenya might have gotten it right in thinking this is all about her.

Do you think Nene is just mad about Kenya, or is it something else?

This was wbout Kenya, but it was not Kenya's fault...NeNe chose not to invite Marlo to this event to throw shade, but it backfired as everything else has for NeNe this season...Marlo realized what was going on and that NeNe actions were intentional and got pissed...then acted on those emotions and said what alot of viewers thought about NeNe these past weeks, but did not handle it in a mature fashion...but nobody is perfect...

I think its a combination of factors.  She has had 2 shows cancelled and only has real housewifes.  Its easy to go up but hard to go down.  I feel badly for her but she needs a therapist other than gregg.  I think we are seeing the real NeNe

Did anyone see how Marlo acted when Nene got married? She tried to make everything about her! She arrived late to events. Refused to wear the same color as all the other bridesmaids when they had a special dinner. And insisted upon seeing Nene as she was getting ready for the actual wedding. She was out of control. And Nene made it clear in last week's episode she wasn't feeling Marlo anymore because of how she acted at the wedding. But of course Marlo being Marlo is rewriting history and trying to make this about her friendship with Kenya. Her and her fake tears need to twirl off somewhere.

Sick of Nene. She is reason I have to stop watching. Hate her too much. I am out and done with the At.

What I saw was Kenya Dragging Marlo after NeNe and darn near throwing Marlo into NeNe at which time NeNe went on the defensive it went down hill from there. Again Kenya causing trouble.

Karen Mitchell

I can't stand Nene. She thinks everyone is below her.  Hate her

Not a fan of Nene anymore.....and since when did Gregg become her little b**ch??

Nene's biggest problem is her ego. She was fun way back when then her head almost got too big to go through a door, then she turned into a "Rich B. .ch". I like her but she has forgotten the saying about how you treat people as you to up the ladder, since in show biz that ladder most of the time goes right back down. Nene has forgotten the only "star" she and ALL the housewives have is being on a housewives show. There are some exceptions, the successful business women, but there are very few of them.

Nene said that she isn't on the same level as the other girls.  Since when?  Kandi  is richer than Nene.  I also found it funny that she made more money on Housewives than she did on the 2 shows combined that she played on(from a previous article).  Don't bite the hand that feeds you Nene Leeks.  Bravo might find you a bit too much for them to handle.  One last thing....Nene, quit bringing up Donald Trump.  You didn't finish the show, how could Donald Trump find her to be anything but trash.

Nene is not the same person she was way back I don't really know what happened to her but sense she got back with Greg an married him again Nene has changed so so much for the worst that's for sure. And I feel she's turned into a bully with a big mouth.
