Kenya Moore did not donate Proceeds of Real Housewives of Atlanta event to Charity – Charity stands behind NeNe by NMD
- The charitable organization Saving our Daughters has confirmed that they were not aware NeNe Leakes was being honored at Kenya Moore’s event shown on the recent episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta. NeNe was shown in an unfavorable light when she gave a terse and rude speech at the event when put on the spot at the last minute.
- The charity has also confirmed that NeNe has been their biggest financial supporter.
- They also confirmed that the 1,000s of dollars Kenya Moore said were raised on camera never made it to them.
- And there you have it – the truth always comes out. The whole event was a transparent setup to make NeNe look bad.
OOPS – SPOKE TOO SOON – KENYA HAS PROVIDED PROOF THAT THE CHARITY DID SPEAK TO NENE AND DID SEND A CHECK AFTER THE EVENT. WHAT IS GOING ON??

OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM SAVING OUR DAUGHTERS
9 hours ago by curtisbenjamin
To all of our sponsors, contributors and friends
On February 16, 2014, Saving Our Daughters was mentioned on the episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta as being honored with a fundraiser on its behalf.
Our charity was contacted by publicist April Love to get approval and give notice of this upcoming event. Much to our delight, we were indeed honored to be chosen. After all, one of our largest financial contributors, Mrs. NeNe Leakes who has been responsible for contributions in the thousands of dollars throughout the years, is a member of the cast. Days later, to our surprise Ms. Love did contact me and inform me that she had decided to terminate her company’s involvement with this event. At that point, Ms. Moore contacted me to continue moving forward with the event as purposed and planned. This call took place a day before the event was scheduled to take place. Upon seeing the event unfold on TV, it was noticed that Ms. Kenya Moore stated that she was giving this charitable event in honor of Mrs. Leakes, with Saving Our Daughters as the recipient of the proceeds from the charity event. Honorees at this point were switched without our knowledge, but again, we are appreciative of any and all support for the organization. Had we been made aware that this fundraising event was in honor of Mrs. Leakes, we certainly would have been present with the plaques and certificates of appreciation that we currently have to present to Mrs. Leakes for her outstanding efforts and support for Saving Our Daughters. This would have been the perfect opportunity for us to honor her, as well.
We were not aware of this and it appears that Mrs. Leakes wasn’t aware either. The light in which Saving Our Daughters was depicted was less than favorable. The organization received several calls from other supporters about our involvement in this event. They were extremely disappointed and felt that the organization was being taken advantage of. We go on record by stating that we at Saving our Daughters have never and will not ever be involved in any drive where the exact purpose is not clear, stated or held to with only approved changes. We would not ever jeopardize our continuing support from our friends by being a part of what appears to have been tainted from the start.
In closing, Ms. Kenya Moore stated that thousands of dollars were raised at this event. To protect the integrity of Saving Our Daughters, our records show that we did not receive any of the proceeds raised from Ms. Moore’s masquerade ball. However, we do appreciate the contribution we did receive of $500 for our annual Christmas doll drive for children with cancer.
The Takedown of Lisa Vanderpump
Guest blog by Quincy
Frankly, I am disgusted. This season reminds me of the take down of Bethenny Frankel by Jill Zarin and her supporters. I am surprised at the lack of outrage on the blogs, but we may be hardened by this kind of behavior. I see Lisa being admonished on film for every comment she makes. She suggests that Carlton and Kyle are on a good path and is told by Yolanda that she will have none of this drama at Gigi’s going away party. Something smells in Beverly Hills.
I don’t think there is a puppet master or a Bobby Fisher in Beverly Hills. These women have stage or acting experience. They are playing roles. Lisa is taking incoming fire. Pandora, Lisa and Ken are tweeting that there are lies coming. I can’t imagine what Brandi and Yolanda have up their sleeves, but Kim and Kyle are transparent. Kim and Kyle have complained about Lisa on “Bethenny.” Their gripe is that Lisa has shared about Kim’s storyline of alcohol addiction and misuse of prescription drugs with Kim. We have seen Kim miss planes, fail to update her driver’s license, drive under the influence of mind altering pills on the expressway, fall on the floor trying to pick up pills, play with dirty tissues in a limousine, etc. She brought this storyline to the show when she fought with Kyle in the back of a limousine. Accusing Lisa of bringing this to the show is ludicrous. The women are supposed to discuss what is going on in their lives. That is why they are under a Bravo contract and receive pay checks.
Where are the girls’ girls? I guess no one is truly happy for a friend’s success on this planet. When you have to form a group to take a person down, that is bullying. This is not the first time the cast tried to take Lisa down. They tried to do it under the direction of Taylor at the Second Season Tea Party. This season the plot is easier to see because Brandi is going from person to person pulling daggers from them to stab Lisa. Lisa has a dry sense of humor. She has a British wit. I don’t think she means harm when quips. Ken speaks his mind. He doesn’t pull punches. That is why Kim reacted to his reminder of her past sins when it came to filming. Ken also shared that they sent a negative RSVP two weeks prior to Kim’s party and sent a gift from Tiffanies. They did not receive a thank you note for that gift. I bet it was expensive too. Kim is so out of line here. She is actually being mean.
I think the worst person in this bunch is Yolanda Hadid. Lisa did nothing to her. In Paris, Yolanda fired a shot that was heard by Kyle and Kim, but Lisa gave Yolanda a pass. Now, Yolanda has gone after Lisa all season. Listen to Yolanda talk about Lisa in the Bravo Interviews. Yolanda has always been mean in her blogs. Kyle asked Yolanda at the last reunion who Kyle was supposed to believe. Was Kyle to believe the Yolanda who is nice to Kyle’s face or the Yolanda in the blogs? Yolanda countered with she is supposed to share her truth in the blog. I think the real Yolanda is the person who stabs you in the back when you are not there. Yolanda doesn’t fool me. She is angry with Mohammed. She says that they don’t show their feelings about each other to their children, but you can see how she feels about him when she makes those jokes about a two year relationship as a long time for Mohammed and sharing information about Mohammed infidelities with Brandi. Does anyone believe that Yolanda didn’t say things about Joanna Krupa to Brandi? I think that the divorce settlement has a clause that neither party is to talk about the other just like Bethenny and Jason Hoppy, but Yolanda is an expert at saying things with a smile. I think that Yolanda doesn’t like Lisa because Mohammed has always loved Lisa as a friend. Mohammed respects Lisa, but I bet he doesn’t respect Yolanda. They have an agreement, but I don’t think Mohammed and Yolanda have resolved their issues. The dynamic between David, Yolanda and Mohammed is weird. I think that Yolanda pointing out that David was ok with her dressing in gym shoes and noting that Mohammed wanted her to be a model all of the time was right on the mark. There is no truce in the divorce of Mohammed and Yolanda. They are in a Cold War.
Kyle is such a victim. I think she can’t see the forest through the trees. Carlton is correct about Kyle labeling people. Kyle told Taylor that the reason Lisa was different was that she was British in the first episode of Season Two. Kyle called a truce with Camille because Camille is selling mansions in BH, and Mauricio wants listings. Kyle supported Adrienne because of Mauricio too. Lisa was correct when she told Kyle that no one would ever have Kyle’s back like Lisa did in Season One. Kyle returned that favor by gossiping with Taylor and stating that Lisa had a big ego at the Second Season Tea Party. Lisa should have known at that point that her relationship with Kyle was never a true friendship.
Brandi may be easily manipulated by the women around her as she claims. Let’s face it. She isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed, but she is pretty. Lisa is watching her friends draw and quarter her on this reality show. It has to hurt. I don’t think Yolanda, Brandi or Kyle have any idea what they are doing to someone that works with them. I think this happened in RHONYC too. Ramona and Jill both took Bethenny down for trying so hard to be a successful business woman and a mom. Everyone on these shows has personality quirks, but to share those quirks on film in order to take someone down is devastating.
I am really surprised at the lack of outrage on blogs over this take down of Lisa. The Social Media was in an uproar when Jill did this to Bethenny. I see this as betrayal by Kyle and Brandi. Lisa has been consistent in her concern for Brandi. She has pointed out that Brandi brings trouble down on her own head all along. Brandi has been spending a great deal of time with Yolanda. Brandi is reflecting Yolanda’s feelings about Lisa this season.
Brandi is one of those women who runs to others who feel hurt by a person when she feels hurt by that person. We see this in the Social Media and in our personal lives. Brandi can claim that someone was pulling her strings, but Brandi is an adult who should take responsibility for her actions. Kyle was foolish to be on Team Brandi and has been thrown under the bus with the bankruptcy controversy that is happening off stage on Twitter and in the Social Media. Brandi went to Kyle for support on the show. This is Kyle’s payback for sharing rumors. This speaks volumes about Kyle and Brandi.
The world is full of this drama. Women are horrible to other women. I admire Bethenny and Lisa’s accomplishments in the business world. They paid a price when it came to personal relationships. Both have their own issues. We all do. I think the main problem is they simply don’t have time for this drama. Let the Brandis and Jills of this world play those games.
Couple’s Therapy Episode 7 “Three’s a crowd” by LuLu
My apologizes the Governor broke Mr Lulu’s laptop. For the past episode will be my take only.
Opens to Dr Jen’s failed “intervention”
Kelsey breaks down and runs off after Dr Jen’s brilliant therapy session. Kelsey is coming to terms with what kind of man “Ghost” is. For a couple’s therapist wouldn’t one have to be I don’t know unbiased?? Ghost clearly has issues and so does his first girlfriend. She’s used to his “cheating” and treatment. Rather then help Ghost Dr Jen asks him to leave so Kelsey can talk to the other women. Surprisingly both of them are cordial. It’s sad just how broken Latrisse is.
He can’t understand why Kelsey is so upset. He is confused by her feelings for him. I don’t think he truly understands what being loved and loving someone is. He needs a plant if he could keep it alive for a year then try a relationship.
Compatability?? That is the subject of therapy. Dr Jen calls the “experts” (plenty of fish) who based on “statistics” judge compatability. All of them fill out surveys. Since Farrah’s boyfriend “porno” is silent. Farrah fills out a dating profile.
Taylor and John
Both are highly dependant and considered compatible
Ghost and Kelsey
Surprise surprise they are not compatible
Whitney and Sada
Lack self control on both parts. But deemed compatible.
Jon and Liz
Kids and divorce means incompatible???? What a crock!!
Takes the BS compatibility results to heart. It enrages him to the point that he calls his agent. He feels that the production is “tampering” with the results for ratings???? Hmmmm no production would NEVER tamper with that! Dr Jen is appalled that he would feel that way!! Because in her professional opinion that would not happen. Yeah and I believe Farrah is not a “porn” star.
One slick MOFO!!
What Ghost did to both ladies is terrible. He knows that Kelsey is done with him but Latrisse is an entirely different matter. After Latrisse expresses her feelings Mr Smooth tries to smooth things over. Latrisse sees through him and has no interest. Hope she moves on and finds someone that will treat her with respect.
Jon and kate minus kate
Taylor voices she hates how Kate 2.0 treats him. That prompts the remainder of the group to chime in. Jon tells Kate 2.0 what is going on. She is defensive and says what they saw is nothing??? Umm every time this women opens her mouth she says terrible things to Jon…..
Vanderpump Rules – Reunion Part 2
“Lives get destroyed because Jax likes attention.”
I found out pretty much everything I wanted to know in the last show, so I’m not sure why they’re dragging this out into two parts. Jax is still a piece of work, Stassi is still a b*tch, Tom & Ariana are together, and Kristen is still bitter. I’ll be taking a hiatus next week since it’s the middle of Mardi Gras season & it’s parade time for me, but I’ll be back in March to analyze Bravo’s new look into “southern” life – Southern Charm.
Anyway, back to the reunion! Kristen is still yelling at Tom & Ariana. While she admits that what she did was wrong, she seems to think that their relationship is worse. Kristen – you cheated on your boyfriend with his best friend, who also happened to be your BFF’s ex-boyfriend. There just isn’t any way to sugar coat that & you look worse when you try to deflect from it. Tom is impressed with how Ariana handled Kristen’s outbursts at Sur. Kristen storms off, which seems to be typical behavior for her – cause a scene then storm off when it doesn’t go your way. Lisa says to just let her go. She seems really tired of Kristen’s behavior.
Scheana, since she’s friends with Kristen now, is stuck in the middle. Stassi says that Scheana’s friendship with Kristen & Jax has caused her reluctance to reach out. Scheana takes the opportunity to tell Stassi, again, how badly her feelings were hurt when Stassi made light of her tooth disaster. Now, I understand why Scheana is upset – it has to be traumatic to have your front teeth knocked out, but she’s been going on about this for way too long. Did she really expect more from Stassi? I’m over it.
Kristen comes back in the middle of this & interrupts. She tells Tom & Ariana to show some respect for her. She thinks that they are all over each other, which they aren’t – Tom has his hand on Ariana’s knee. It hurts Kristen that Tom & Ariana are holding hands. Based on Ariana’s outfit (booty shorts & a jacket only), she’s trying to rub it in Kristen’s face. Tom points out that Kristen sleeping with the busboy, & his friend, in their bed was pretty disrespectful. What is up with Kristen & sleeping with Tom’s friends? Ugh, more Tom & Kristen fighting. Tom then diagnoses Kristen with borderline personality disorder. While I do think that Kristen needs some help, I’m not about to start making diagnoses. Kristen tells him to stop worrying about her. Wait, didn’t she just want him to worry about her feelings & stop holding Ariana’s hand? These people need to be out of each other’s lives for good.
Andy attempts to switch gears – to Jax’s recent jail time. Jax admits that he’s been to jail quite a few times & is having trouble narrowing down which time Andy is referring to. Andy is talking about the time, during this season, when Jax disappeared for 3 days. According to Jax, he didn’t get his new insurance & his license got suspended. Cut to footage showing him explain to Lisa that he was leaving Sur, was pulled over, & an old warrant came up. Jax acts like going to jail is no big deal – DUI, fighting, etc. I just don’t believe anything Jax says, he’s so full of sh*t.
On to Lisa’s dinner party from hell – Lisa admits that she was overwhelmed by all of the drama, both from her employees & her friends. Scheana points out that Stassi & Katie were pretty funny during the dinner. We get to see some flashbacks of their reactions to the drama. Amazing that they are appalled by the RHoBH behavior, but see nothing wrong with their own.
Peter’s birthday is up next. Katie was pissed at Scheana because Scheana was dancing on Peter. Lisa points out that Katie was only mad because she was drunk. I think that we all realized that Katie was over-reacting. Scheana also had a rough time at Kyle’s COC party. Lisa says that Scheana will always be the “other woman” to Brandi. Brandi is always going to have rude comments for her. Scheana doesn’t think it’s fair for her to be cut from parties because Brandi is going to be there. Umm, you slept with her husband, so yeah, it is fair. Scheana thinks that Brandi needs to move on, but it has to be hard to do when the other woman is constantly around.
Jax thought he had cancer, though now he says that it wasn’t that serious. We all saw him make a huge deal out of it to everyone! Lisa thinks he was trying to get the sympathy card. Turns out, it was due to his crazy supplements, as Stassi suspected.
Andy says that it’s now time to talk about Kristen & Jax. Haven’t we already spent most of this reunion talking about them in some form or another? Stassi says that she believed the rumor from the beginning. It happened during a time when Stassi & Kristen weren’t getting along, Kristen & Tom weren’t getting along, Kristen was spending lots of time w/Jax. Stassi says that it would have been easier if there was a relationship b/w Kristen & Jax, rather than just sex. I don’t know about that, I think it’s pretty awful either way.
Stassi played Sherlock Holmes & texted Jax from Kristen’s phone. At that time, Kristen denied sleeping with Jax. Kristen had already texted Jax & warned him. Wow, Kristen went to extremes to cover up her behavior. But then she did it again! At least she admits that there is no excuse for sleeping with Jax while Tom was in the other room. During that time, Tom was doing his best to make things better with Kristen but she was constantly putting him down. I felt bad for her at the time, but now we know that she was cheating too. I have zero sympathy for her & am tired of her victim act.
Jax saved all of Kristen’s text messages. He says that he wasn’t planning to use them against her, but Tom thinks he kept them as leverage. I agree with Tom’s assessment that Jax has no integrity or loyalty. The lack of compassion is astounding to me. Lisa points out the lack of remorse that Jax has shown. Kristen lashes out at Ariana again when Ariana weighs in. Lisa tells Kristen to stop it, that Ariana is part of the group & has the right to say whatever she wants. Go Lisa! Lisa is asked why she doesn’t fire Kristen. She says that Kristen is on a down-ward spiral, but that she doesn’t want to kick someone when she’s down. Kristen really needs to appreciate Lisa.
On to Stassi’s “public execution” of Kristen. I get why she wanted to publicly expose Kristen, but it seems really harsh when you consider Tom’s feelings about the whole thing. It’s pretty apparent that Stassi & Kristen will never be friends again. Then why does Stassi expect Kristen to try to make things up to her? Tom is obviously pissed that Jax publicly humiliated him that way, instead of being a friend & handling it in private. I don’t blame him at all. Jax blames it all on Stassi. He only did what she wanted because she has some kind of power over him. Stassi admits that she was excited about humiliating Kristen. Tom thinks that it’s sick that Stassi gets so much joy in knocking people down. Stassi starts the tears & asks why she’s being attacked. Stassi, you’re being attacked because you’re always attacking others. Scheana admits that everyone was involved in the surprise party, that it wasn’t just Stassi. But Stassi was leading the charge, as Tom points out.
Tom says that he didn’t believe Stassi at first because she was already trying to cut Kristen off from everyone. Tom points out that Jax was almost gleeful when telling him about the affair. I remember wondering why Jax didn’t seem more contrite. He has no remorse at all. Kristen says that she came clean because it was eating away at her. I believe that, but I don’t believe Jax ever felt guilty – I think he told Stassi because he wanted her attention. Tom was a good friend to him, even when he was a jerk, but Jax says that they were never friends. Tom says that it’s hard to trust people now because of the way Jax treated him. They show the footage of Tom getting details from Jax on the beach. Jax says that kissing is more intimate & that’s why he drew the line there. Very Pretty Woman of him.
Stassi is now embarrassed by all of her nudity. She was naked a lot last season & didn’t learn from it, so I think she’s just an attention whore. I wonder what her parents think. Mine would be livid!
Stassi admits to some moments of weakness where Jax was concerned. Lisa thought they would end up together because Jax had such love for Stassi. He did work really hard to win Stassi back, though we now know that he was sleeping with all sorts of other people at the same time. He says that he slept with other people because he was trying to get over Stassi. Stassi says that she would like to think people can change, but that she doesn’t think Jax can. Me either! Jax still has nothing to say to Tom. Tom again asks why Jax hasn’t shown any remorse. Lisa points out that Kristen has shown some emotion, but Jax has shown none. Jax can’t even look at Tom. Jax says that he’s sorry for what happened & that he hopes Tom can forgive him. I’m not buying it.
Happy Birthday Lizzle
