Bravo’s most successful, most popular & most paid (Yes, she’s Very Rich) housewife Nene Leakes is sounding off on VH1’s controversial show Basketball Wives.
“The truth is the truth. It has just gone too far. Too many fights, my God!” said NeNe. “[RHOA] don’t do that. We definitely have had our verbal fights, but never physical fights. I can’t believe the fighting and the bullying. It looks bad. It really looks bad.”
The star of the Real Housewives of Atlanta who is good friends with Basketball Flies star Jennifer Williams (who’s been the center of bullying and physical attacks), says the show is a bad look for the girls business wise.
“They can’t want to do too much in their careers. A good ole argument, everybody likes that every now and then to tune into, but you couldn’t be trying to have too much in your career because that stuff, it don’t work. You can’t represent a product and be that way. That just doesn’t work.”
Leakes then goes on and says you have to have drama for good rating but you have to draw the line somewhere.
“You gotta have drama and entertainment, but some of the stuff has driven me insane. I do really think that it’s personal growth. It’s almost like being in a relationship and you’re like, ‘I done taken all I can take and I can’t take no more,’” she said.
I quit watching Basketball Flies when Evelyn Lasagna was running across tables like a monkey throwing bottles of wine. Even though my favorite type of shows has to include weave pulling & drink throwing, Evelyn Lasagna, Chad Onomatopoeia & Tami The Alcoholic has took it too far.
Leakes is currently filming season 5 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, she is getting paid a whopping ONE MILLION DOLLARS to be on the cast.
