NeNe Leakes was hospitalized for having blood clots in her lung. That sounds terrifying. She assured her fans that she did NOT have a heart attack. Here’s what else she said, via Long Island Newsday:
Late last week I wasn’t feeling well and was feeling a little short of breath. I know my body and I know when I should be concerned so I went to the hospital to get checked out.
She says she got the blood clots because of,
the constant traveling around the country that I do for my job.
I’m thankful to be alive as the doctor advised me that most people don’t recognize the symptoms of blood clots and don’t go to the doctor and that’s when the big problems start happening.
Well great, now I’m paranoid that every little thing wrong with me is a blood clot. She tweeted this photo of her with IVs in her arm with, “My arms are hurting wit these IV’s #blessedtobealive…”
She’s out of the hospital and has been tweeting “thank yous” to fans. She seems to be doing okay. Let’s hope she paid her hospital bill.

NeNe Leakes was so hype over her recent wedding redux to Gregg Leakes last month, having a lavish ceremony in Atlanta that she posted photos from all over the Internet, blah blah. The whole thing was filmed for TV, over 400 guests were in attendance and there was plenty of fun to be had for all. The problem? Uh, NeNe didn’t pay for any of this… and now she’s being sued by her wedding planner.
The woman going after Leakes is Tiffany Cook — who claims NeNe hired Dream Design Weddings to coordinate the party for her marriage to Gregg Leakes on June 22, 2013 … a wedding that will featured on a Bravo TV special in September.
In her suit, filed in Georgia, Cook claims Leakes promised to pay her 15% of the entire wedding budget PLUS fees design and execution of the wedding PLUS travel expenses to the event.
In total, Cook claims NeNe’s budget for the wedding was $1.8 MILLION!!!!!!!!! And Cook claims she was due $270k (the 15%) PLUS another $889,900 (design fees) PLUS $1,750 (4 coach tickets from Florida to Georgia).
Cook claims NeNe did fork over the initial down payment ($18,750) … but she hasn’t seen a penny since — and is suing for the remaining $1,142,900 balance … PLUS damages.
In total, Cook — who also put together Kordell Stewart’s wedding to Porsha — wants more than $2.5 MILLION for her troubles.
Sounds like a hot mess. Also, how the hell is she due another nearly million dollars for design fees if the entire wedding budget was $1.8 million? Like, girl, no. Something tells me there’s some lying going on here. If you didn’t receive full payment for all of your services, fair enough. But to try and tack on all this other money – $2.5 million in total, which is almost a million MORE than the ENTIRE WEDDING BUDGET – then you need to get to steppin’.
NeNe Leakes and her ex and now regular husband Gregg Leakes, are just like Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. They’re both such massive , legendary figures in Hollywood and they both decided that they loved their ex husband and wife so much that they would marry them again. Or whatever. So that’s what NeNe and Gregg did. USA Today has more info on this Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s
The statuesque Real Housewives of Atlanta star tied the knot with Gregg Leakes in a lavish, 400-guest ceremony Saturday night at the InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta hotel, according to E! News.
Naturally, cameras were there to film the whole thing, since the newly-recommitted Leakeses have landed their own Bravo spinoff dramatically titled I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding.
“I’m so happy to see my parents remarried, as a family we’ve never been happier,” their teen son, Brentt, told E! of his father and mother.
Well maybe they needed that 3 year break to realize just how much they actually
needed more money loved each other.
Kim Kardashian had her baby shower yesterday with its strict ~~Garden Chic~~ theme. Judging from the photos, that meant, “wear white.” It seems like it was quite the lovely C-list affair. Some details from People Magazine:
The Kardashian clan was joined by guests, including Kelly Osbourne, Maria Menounos, Kimberly Stewart, NeNe Leakes and Mel B., to celebrate the new addition, due in July.
The group enjoyed brunch – noshing on pancakes, waffles and fruit – before playing games and guessing baby names. Guests left with wreaths made of baby’s breath in their hair.
As for the reality star’s beau Kanye West, he did attend after all, arriving with Scott Disick and Lamar Odom.
“Kanye’s whole family – all the women from his mom’s side and dad’s side – attended the shower,” a source tells PEOPLE. “Kanye was so excited to have his family be there to join in the celebration with Kim’s friends and family.”
The mom-to-be, who has been defended by fellow celebs for her sometimes-unconventional maternity style, wore a white long-sleeve pleated dress to the event.
“Kim and Kanye were so cute – he rubbed her belly,” Kardashian’s aunt Karen Houghton tells PEOPLE. “They’re just really blessed. It’s such a happy day.”
Weirdly, no good photos of Kim or Kanye have been released yet. So let’s take a look at the guests’ attire, shall we? Here’s my sneak peak.
BEST: Kimberly Stewart.
WORST: Tracy Anderson, Lamar Odom
WTF: Nene Leaks
So what’s the law about threats in print that can be written off as jokes? Am I going to go to jail for saying I’d kill Bravo execs if two of my favorite people ever on reality television get the ax from The Real Housewives of Atlanta? Because I absolutely would stab Andy Cohen in cold blood if season three of Real Housewives of Atlanta comes back without Kim and Nene, but not really.
There’s word out now that it might happen, though. Kim and Nene’s egos have blown up as the second season continued to garner high ratings and a cult-like following and now they want more money and are acting like they’re part of Diva’s Live 2010. While a source who spoke to People Magazine didn’t give any specifics about their demands, they do say that NeNe and Kim’s requests have become so outrageous that the network is looking in to other options for season three. While I don’t completely mind change (the addition of Kandi last season was the best thing they’ve ever done), losing Kim and Nene and leaving us with Lisa and Sheree? Doesn’t feel like the show would be anywhere near as interesting. Forget the drama, you can’t find another Kim and another Nene.
