I love Real Housewives. I love the Real Housewives of New York, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the Real Housewives of Orange County, the Real Housewives of New Jersey…but not the Real Housewives of DC because that was just stupid. It’s definitely a guilty pleasure that I relish. Don’t judge me. Which is my favorite bunch of housewives? The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Why? One reason. Nene Leakes.
Nene is probably the funniest person to ever grace my television screen, except maybe for Kenneth from 30 Rock, because he makes me giggle until I’m blue. I don’t know what enneagram number Nene is, but I know she is straight-up crazy. All of the best moments from the Real Housewives of Atlanta involve Nene because she creates them. She says what she wants, she yells, she cries, she isn’t afraid to tell you like it is and she’s not afraid to burn bridges. She’s the kind of woman I aspire to be. Ok, maybe not quite, I would never be on a reality TV show, but you have to admit, there’s something admirable about someone with an eccentric personality and isn’t afraid to express herself. Plus, did you see her on The New Normal? She was awesome. She totally had me in stitches and she stole the show. I could write for hours about all of the amazing things the Nene has said or done, but luckily for you I’ve compiled it down to my top 5 favorite Nene Leakes moments on the Real Housewives of Atlanta. I know you’re as excited as I am.
1) “Close ya legs to married men.” Season 1
I mean, really? First of all, this is just hilarious. I am totally on Nene’s side on this one and I’m not even really sure that they are talking about, but I don’t trust anyone who wears a wig because they claimed they had cancer, but really didn’t (I’m looking at you Kim). Also, Nene didn’t have chicken, she had lamb and shrimp. She obviously wins.
2) “I’ll toss you out the window!” Season 3
Anyone who can make Kim’s face look like that or make that many empty threats without getting a restraining order is a hero in my book.
3) “Bloop bloop bloop!” Season 3 reunion
I may have lost 3 IQ points watching that argument but I think Nene says it all here.
4) “These are my eyes…” Which season? I forget.
Why did she start talking about her eyes? I don’t even care, that was one of the funniest things I have ever seen. Amen, Nene.
5) “Trump checks!” Season 4
This is for sure my favorite Nene moment. Unfortunately I couldn’t find a good clip off of YouTube, but this truly shows Nene in all of her fighting glory. At the end she storms out of the restaurant and brags about her beautiful, $50,000 teeth she bought with her Trump money. Sorry Sheree, but Nene has you beat with those teeth.
I’m sure what you gathered most from this post is that I watch a lot of TV. I do love television and if you’re one of those annoying people who says stupid things like “I don’t watch television” then we probably won’t be friends because if you can’t quote Nene Leakes quotes back to me then we have nothing in common. I also respond with this:
These are my eyes and they love watching television.
