NeNe Leakes Apologizes For Rude Speech
If you are like us, Sunday’s episode of “Real Housewives Of Atlanta” was particularly uncomfortable to watch as NeNe Leakes delivered a rude and utterly awkward speech at Kenya Moore‘s charity event for the foundation Saving Our Daughters. In NeNe’s defense, Kenya did seem like she was using NeNe’s name to garner a crowd for her event that Funky Dineva said was poorly attended. However, NeNe could have put aside her and Kenya’s differences for a good cause.
NeNe took to her weekly Bravo blog to issue an apology for her ugly behavior but remains stern by her idea that Kenya was out to make her look bad.
I don’t have a lot I want to say, but I’ll start by saying I apologize for my behavior at the charity event. I definitely don’t want to teach young women that this is the proper way to respond when someone is trying to trick you into a situation and push your buttons. I would much rather teach young women to be aware of the wolves in sheep’s clothing.
Kenya used the charity’s name for her own selfish reasons. I’m the kind of girl that likes to spill the facts. Everything else is just gossip and B.S. Here are the facts. I never received a call, a text, or an email from Kenya. What I did learn the night before the charity event is that Kenya had used a PR Firm to send e-vites to everyone, which is why I didn’t see it. Fact! You heard me right, a third party! She wanted you to believe she sent me an email and she did not. FACT! If she really had pure, good intentions, she could have picked up the phone, called me, and said, “Hey let’s put our differences aside for a night of charity!”
I’m a very rational person. I have been a major supporter to Saving Our Daughters and have raised thousands of dollars for them. Fact! All this charity B.S. is coming from a person that showed up at my charity event last year in a thong and butt pads! She even argued outside of Porsha’s charity event! She has no credibility when it comes to charity. I just hope Saving Our Daughters received the thousands of dollars she claimed to have raised.
I’m not surprised things have gone down the way they have between Kenya and me. She had beef with Cynthia over the whole coochie crack thing, then moved on to Porsha, then to Phaedra over a booty video, then to Apollo, and now me! I see straight through her! She’s not original. What’s she’s doing has already been done. I have always stood alone in a war! I might bend, but I won’t break, and if I stumble, I won’t fall! I see what she’s doing and so do you.
P.S. Here’s something else I saw: (1) Did you see the opportunist that keeps coming around? (2) Did you see my friend just sit there and indirectly support this B.S.? I have worked with a lot of women over the years, and the one thing that it has taught me is that life is like an elevator — on your way up, you have to let people off!
Saving Our Daughters founder and CEO Curtis Benjamin issued a statement today claiming the organization did not receive any funds from Kenya’s event:
Ms. Kenya Moore stated that thousands of dollars were raised at this event. To protect the integrity of Saving Our Daughters, our records show that we did not receive any of the proceeds raised from Ms. Moore’s masquerade ball.
However, we do appreciate the contribution we did receive of $500 for our annual Christmas doll drive for children with cancer.
