Sure, Nene, Because Bullies Always Cop to It when Accused of Bullying
Posted by tinselkitty on May 7, 2011
That’s why we’ve been able to put the kibosh on bullying in no time flat, ensuring that it never became an epidemic. Right after I publish this I’m going to call Dan Savage and tell him he can cool it with the It Gets Better series. Nene says she’s not a bully, therefore, it must be so. The hippies have finally won.
From Wet Paint –
After the altercations NeNe Leakes has gotten herself into both on Real Housewives of Atlanta, and now on Celebrity Apprentice, she’s been pretty widely painted as a bully who uses her size to physically dominate her victims, but hey now, it’s not NeNe’s fault she’s 5’10” and towers over everyone!
In a recent radio interview with The Russ Parr Morning Show, NeNe disagreed with the bully label, and disputed accusations that she was only chosen for Celebrity Apprentice to be branded the villain.
“I’m on the show because I am very popular and Mr. Donald Trump handpicked me himself,” she insisted. While it may be easy to tab NeNe as the most outwardly aggressive of the women, she certainly doesn’t have a reputation for being a villain. She has proven her business savvy on the show (she’s now in the final 7), and is often praised by the Donald and her teammates.
“I’m not bullying anybody,” she added. “I stand up for what I believe in, and I’m very honest, and I always tell the truth. I’m not a liar, I’m not manipulative, and I don’t stab you in your back, because I will stab you in your chest.”
Whoa. Well, take note, Star. At least when NeNe attacks, you’ll know it.
For the record, LaToya Jackson, who first accused NeNe of being a bully on Celebrity Apprentice, has since made up with the Hotlanta Housewife, and the two are now friends. First Kim and now LaToya? NeNe seems to be the queen of on-again-off-again frenemies.
She admitted to the radio hosts that being on a show with other people wasn’t really her vibe, and revealed that she’ll hopefully be getting her own show “soon.” Do you think we’ll see the softer side of NeNe once she’s on her own show?
Yeah, so…no. Unless I totally learned it wrong, I got the impression the hippies were all about peace and love and harmony. I don’t remember the chapter that discussed how they were morally superior because they’d make sure you saw them stabbing you instead of being all sneaky sly and catching you off guard.
Of course, if I was Nene, I wouldn’t be all “Mr. Donald Trump handpicked me himself” given the recent unsavory business with “the blacks“. I mean, one would have to wonder, given Mr. Trump’s proclivities towards the non-orange amongst us, if he hadn’t handpicked someone he knew would portray a particular group in a fashion that might give credence to certain stereotypes. Surely Nene wouldn’t want to be part of anything that promoted the angry black woman meme, right?
As for the bit about Nene not really cool with being on a show with other people? Well, we’ve all figured that out by now. Believe me, we’ve got it. Loud and clear. Not quite as loud as the laughing that occurs when we consider what a show with all Nene, all the time would look like, but loud enough to make a point.
