ISH TALKERS: Cynthia Bailey Had THIS To Say About NeNe Leakes Leaving “RHOA” + Is Nick Cannon Mourning His Failed Marriage With Mariah Carey?!

 photo cyyhj.jpg

You know by now NeNe Leakes will no longer be starring on “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” And now, her frenemy Cynthia Bailey is reacting to the news. Find out what she said and decide whether or not Nick Cannon may be going through a mourning stage after his failed marriage with Mariah Carey inside…

There are quite a few changes for the upcoming season of BRAVO’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” Newcomer Claudia Jordan got the AXE and “RHOA” veteran NeNe Leakes announced she will NOT be returning to the franchise.

And now were hearing how one housewife feels about the shake up.

“RHOA” star Cynthia Bailey is now speaking out about her frenemy NeNe no longer starring on the hit BRAVO series. And she made it clear, one person clearly doesn’t stop the show…or so she hopes.

E! News caught up with the former runway model down at ESSENCE Festival where she opened up about her thoughts on NeNe leaving the franchise. She said,

"Well the show has never been about one person. It's just not what makes it work. Sometimes you gotta change it up and mix it up. I look forward to a really great drama-filled season."

Sounds like Cynthia is already cooking up faux drama schemes for next season....

The Bailey Agency honcho said she wasn’t surprised that NeNe would not be returning. She explained,

"You know, I wasn't super surprised because I used to be very close with NeNe so I knew that at some point, she wanted to do other things and rightfully so because I think she has had a great run on the show. In my opinion, she will always be the original Atlanta Housewife and I wish her well."

So are Cynthia and NeNe still beefing? In short, No! She revealed she texted NeNe upon hearing the news and wishes her nothing but the best.

“We text back and forth…When I heard the news about her leaving the show, I shot her a text and said good luck to you. May you continue to shine. Do your thing, so we are cool."

Well, nice to know the ladies can at least be cordial with one another. Maybe they will be able to salvage what’s left of their former friendship now that the cameras won’t be following NeNe around.

There have been rumors Kim Fields could possibly be joining the cast, but Cynthia can’t confirm.

Apparently, Cynthia doesn't want a show about black women being friends and uplifting one another.  She’s pleading for whoever joins the cast that they bring the heat.  She added,

"I am just excited for someone to come in who is a spit fire, someone who is not just gonna come in and check things out," she explained. "I don't know who yet but whoever you are, please audition for the Real Housewives of Atlanta. We need you!"

Whoever joins the cast will have some big shoes to fill. #NoShade

Is Nick Cannon mourning the death of his marriage to superstar Mariah Carey? It sure appears so.

While his estranged wife lives it up with her billionaire boo James Packer on a yacht overseas, the “America’s Got Talent” host is slighty in his feeling. Over on his Instagram page, the comedian posted an array of “singledom” memes.

Here’s what he has been posting:

Hmmm...looks a little suspect to us. While in prior posts he claims just because he posts something, it doesn't mean he's actually going through said situation, we can't help but wonder if he's feeling some type of way about his soon-to-be ex-wife and her new relationship. Your thoughts?

The 2015 ESSENCE Festival went down with a BANG last night as celebs and festival goers celebrated Independence Day in a major way.

Sexy Chi-town rapper Common was the opening act at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome to kick-off an epic night of performances. For the first time, the Oscar winner performed his own set on the main stage. And he was super excited about it.

In the press room, the handsome rapper/actor chopped it up about few projects he has in the works. He’s gearing up to star in a musical drama film (directed by Wu Tang Clan’s RZA) titled Coco. Raptress Azealia Banks will lead the film as the title character Coco and neo-soul songstress Jill Scott is also set to star in the Lionsgate film.

Common will also be making a splash in a new superhero film Suicide Squad, Warner Bros.’ all-star action movie featuring DC Entertainment super-villains. He will be starring opposite Will Smith and Viola Davis. Sweet!

He also set to begin filming for Gerard Butler's Film Hunter Killer this month.

Next up on the stage….

Erykah Badu treated festival goers with her sultry vocals and deep lyrics as she rocked the stage performing her classic hits.

During her set, she wowed the audience with ESSENCE’s first global cover…ever. And she SLAYED like no other as she posed it up in the motherland for the breathtaking cover.

Hip Hop veteran Missy Elliot blessed the ESSENCE Festival stage with her timeless bangers, such as “Hot Boy and “Work It.”

As she hit some dance moves and spit her bars, Missy decided to get up-close-and-personal with her fans joining them in the audience as she turned up. Soon after, the raptress brought out Jazmine Sullivan and she KILLED her performance, per usual.

Once Missy’s set was over…fans were NOT happy! Not because she didn’t do a good job, but because they wanted MORE! Fans were pissed and started boo’ing as she exited the stage. Yikes!

Peep her high-energy performance below:



And last, but not least....

R&B crooner Usher came to slow it down and end the concert on a melodic note, serenading the audience with cuts like "OMG," “Nice & Slow” and “Love In The Club.”  He also brought out Wale for their track "Matrimony."

The “Good Kisser” singer made quite the statement when he hopped on stage in a “Juneteenth” t-shirt with “July Fourth” crossed out. On the back of his leather jacket, the slogan “Have we truly achieved our independence?" Yes! Subtle stances are better than NO stance at all.

The "Empire" crew was on the scene for the festivities and were spotted tearing up the front row during Missy's performance.

Fab chicks Angela Simmons and Sevyn Streeter looked gorgeous as they made their rounds.

Sevyn chopped it up with the media in the press room where she revealed she’s releasing new music July 17 on a new LP titled, Should’ve Been There. She said she wasn’t in the best place when writing the new tracks, so she felt the only way to move forward would be to air out her frustrations and address some of her issues on wax. Not mad.



1. spotted Avengers star Anthony Mackie and his wife Sheletta Chapital (who recently got married) zooming through the Superdome…and guess what? The newlyweds are PREGNANT! Congrats to the couple!

A source close to set spilled the tea to E! News during the 2015 ESSENCE Festival going down right now in New Orleans. And it definitely seems to be true:



Last month, the mother-of-one stopped by the Empire Writer’s room to chop it up with the show’s writers. Ahh...September 23rd isn't getting here quickly enough.

The gorgeous R&B songstress (who EIC says rocked the same super cute black sheer tee Jada Pinkett Smith wore recently) joined Trey Songz and choreographer director Frank Gatson Jr. for the Samsung Galaxy Experience. During her time on the panel, Kelly dished on how she’s juggling motherhood and career.

Touching on raising a African-American son in America, Kelly spoke about how she plans to teach Titan (her son with husband Tim Weatherspoon) how to interact with police. But she's plans to teach him how to stand up for himself. She said, “We want to teach him to be responsible and to respect authority, but to always stand up for himself. He’s no punk.”

After the panel, Trigga and Kellz snapped it up with daytime talk show Steve Harvey.
