She's OUT! NeNe Leakes is saying 'Good Bye' to the TV show that made her a household name. Deets inside...
News broke late last night that NeNe Leakes is dropping her peach and she's leaving the hit Bravo series "Real Housewives of Atlanta."
NeNe has made it no secret that she's not been a fan of the direction he show is going, which is mainly in the direction of attacking NeNe...in her eyes. The last standing original "RHOA" Housewife is known to complain about all the newbies creating storylines for themselves by coming for her. And many of those co-stars who beef with NeNe find themselves conveniently fired. Most recently, NeNe's enemy Claudia Jordan got the ax.
It seems the actress wasn't pleased enough about Claudia leaving after one season, because she's walking out herself.
The 48-year-old told her fans via social media:
This is so hard for me to type! I cry as I do so! I am so Grateful for all the love and laughs! Thank you so much to everyone that has watched and supported me over the years on this amazing platform! With lots of thoughts and prayer I've decided to step out on faith and not fear #nomoRHOA4me
She also told PEOPLE magazine that she made the decision to call it quits once her contract was up.
"This was definitely a hard decision for me," Leakes tells PEOPLE. "Me and my husband [Gregg Leakes] have been going back and forth on it for weeks now. But my contract is up and I just think this is the right time. This is my opportunity to spread my wings and do different things."
And yes, the attacks from the other women seem to have played a part in NeNe saying 'Good Bye'. She said:
"I feel a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders...There were times when I was a target," she says. "I won't miss the negativity."
What does Andy Cohen think of all this? He tweeted:
"We love @NeNeLeakes & she is always welcome back to the house she helped build! She's a Real Housewife forever!!"
NeNe also said she doesn't rule out returning or popping up to "play with those girls every now and then."
So how will the Georgia native afford that new $2 million mansion of hers from now on? Apparently, she's got some major projects n the works. She told People:
"I'm actually going to be doing a new primetime television show with a big legend," Leakes teases of the series she begins filming this week. "All of my fans will get to see me be really happy, witty and funny and tell all of those one liners that I always have said on Housewives."
Chrissy Teigen and Joan Smalls made W magazine’s top 10 sexiest supermodels on social media. Peep their saucy shots and get the deets on WNBA star Glory Johnson’s baby announcement inside…
We know Chrissy Teigen is no stranger to sharing exactly what she’s thinking on social media. And the wife of John Legend also has no problem baring it all in the name of fashion.
The upcoming daytime talk show host went totally topless in a new spread for W magazine’s Pop Issue (where Taraji P. Henson graces the cover). The Sports Illustrated supermodel was named one of the top 10 sexiest supermodels on social media. So to prove how “sexalicious” status, she served up a little nudity for her editorial.
Shot by fashion photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott and styled by Edward Enninful, the 29-year-old rocked a pair of white Dolce & Gabbana briefs, a Stephen Webster bracelet, a Chopard ring and knee-high studded Altuzarra boots perched on a chair.
It wasn't a problem to get Chrissy naked either. The “Lip Sync Battle” co-host says she’s most comfortable when she’s wearing less clothing and showing more skin. She spilled to the mag, “The most uncomfortable I’ve ever been on set was having to model coats. I actually am better in less clothing.”
Also nabbing a spot on the list....
Gorgeous supermodel Joan Smalls showed off her long, lean legs for her W magazine pictorial. The Victoria’s Secret model served up uber model fab in a Rosamosario bra and briefs, Delpozo blouse, Irene Neuwirth ring and Miu Miu shoes.
She dished to the publication on compliments she receives where she sometimes wonder if they're actual compliments. She said, “People say, ‘You’re prettier in person,’ and I’m like, ‘Is that a compliment?’” Ha! Good question. We'll yes, because she's stunning.
Peep a few clips of the ladies revealing their celebrity crushes and what they sleep in when they go to bed below:
In the midst of relationship issues with her wife, WNBA star Glory Johnson reveals she’s 9-weeks pregnant…with twins! And, according to her, it was no surprise because she and her estranged wife/WNBA starlet Brittney Griner planned to have twins with the IVF Cycle.
She took to her Instagram, posting a picture of the ultra sound with the caption,
As of today I'm 9 Weeks Pregnant with TWINS!!!! #BigNews #BabyAIsBadAlready Its not a surprise for me because this is what we planned for with the IVF Cycle, though hearing their hearts beat for time was the most ASTONISHING thing I have ever heard in my ENTIRE LIFE. For 15yrs Double-Doubles came with hardwork and dedication...now I've been blessed by God to have "double doubles" for the rest of my life! Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Psalms 127:3 #IAmBlessedToHaveThemWithMe #LifeIsAboutToGetInteresting #TWINS
Despite her excitement, the relationship between Glory and Brittney Griner has been a very rocky one. They have been doing the MOST.
The twosome got married at the Tapatio Cliffs Resort in Arizona in May, just a week and half after they were both arrested on domestic violence charges after a violent situation in their home. Everything seemed to be going well...or so we thought. Almost a month into the marriage, Glory reveals they are expecting a baby! Seems good right? Wrong!
A day (yes, ONE day) after the baby announcement, Brittney filed for an annulment from Glory, saying she had made a HUGE mistake and felt pressured to marry her. Glory claims she was totally blindsided about their uncoupling, while Brittney claims they both came to that agreement. Sighs…yes, we know it’s A LOT.
Now, Glory has two babies to raise and we’re not exactly sure where Brittney stands in all this. Either way, congrats to Glory on her double blessing.
