NeNe Leakes Says Black People Are Her Biggest Haters

Comments: 0  | Leave A Comment

Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes says that her own people would rather support Kim Kardashian than her. In an interview with The Daily Beast, the reality star said, “It’s true and I know you’ve heard it a million times, [African Americans] just don’t support one another. But it’s OK for you to go pick up a magazine cover with Kim Kardashian. She’s my girl. We are cool. We talk. We do drinks and all of that. But her story ain’t no different than mine. You know what I mean? I might’ve worked at the strip club, but she made a sex tape.”

NeNe also blasted her haters for criticizing her being on the cover of EBONY‘s Power issue — were she was in the tub surrounding by diamonds. She said,
“I absolutely deserve to be on the cover…This cover is about money, power, and respect. And it’s about a come-up story and I’m the one that had that story this year … Not only did I come out as a reality star that was very boisterous and vivacious and outspoken and all those things. I flipped that into money and respect. And a lot of people can’t do that.”

  • She continued, “But listen to me, definitely all of the negative feedback definitely came from my own; African Americans were the ones that were the most negative. And it’s so funny to me because I would call [the editor] over at Ebony and she would say ‘Girl please, glass houses. That’s all it is. They don’t want to see you on the cover, they don’t really understand the reason why you’re on the cover, they don’t know your story.'”
