You know the saying, black folk are just like crabs in a barrel. The minute one of us starts our ascent to the top, here come 3 or 4 of us trying to pull that person down. If you’ve been black for more than a day, you know that the crabs in a barrel saying, concept, philosophy is more than just a joke. It really exists. There are some black people who would much rather have you struggle alongside them than reach new heights.
Recently Hollywood Street King reported that NeNe Leakes was in more financial trouble, so much trouble that her Bentley had been repossessed around Thanksgiving . Well, bad news travels fast and soon NeNe heard about this so-called repossession and took to Twitter to respond to the claims.
Part of me agrees with NeNe. If people are out here trying to slander your name with false repossession rumors, then yeah, they probably don’t want to see you succeed. As much as NeNe is not my favorite person, I can say that I wouldn’t wish repossession on anyone. I’m sure it can be a really embarrassing ordeal, especially when you know it will be reported on blogs and maybe even national media.
Where NeNe and I disagree is why people can’t exactly feel comfortable about her success. Perhaps it has more to do with the way NeNe has earned her success that people may have an issue with. When you’re famous for being catty, picking fights and calling other women out for what you deem as tacky is what people have an issue with.
Personally, I’ve resigned to let NeNe cook. Initially, I liked watching her on the show because I appreciated her realness. But eventually her realness, started sounding more and more rude. So I stopped watching the Real Housewives. Just because I no longer watch the show, doesn’t mean I want NeNe to fall on her face. I sincerely enjoy NeNe on “The New Normal,” because she’s acting and she’s funny there and I can appreciate that.
Does she have a point about black people wanting to see her struggle? Do you have a problem with the way NeNe’s made her money?
First Jen gets fired, now she’s losing her car? So far, the “Basketball Wives” star has been the only one filing lawsuits but now she’s on the receiving end of one—from The Toyota Motor Credit Corporation in Syosset, NY.
According to TMZ, Toyota filed a lawsuit against Jennifer claiming she hasn’t made payments on her used 2006 white Bentley in three years and now they want it back. The company states in its lawsuit that it made several attempts to peacefully repossess the vehicle but was unsuccessful, so now it wants the court to handle it and force Jen to give the car back. Toyota also wants the entire outstanding balance on the car, which is $92,310.
Jen’s rep told TMZ;
“Jennifer hasn’t been served documents in reference to this lawsuit. Anything related to community property acquired during the marriage, such as the car, is an issue that is currently being addressed in her divorce proceedings.”
That may be so, but Jen didn’t file for divorce from Eric Williams until July 2011, why did she stop making payments on the Bentley in 2009? Maybe her money isn’t as long as she thinks it is, and it just got shorter now that she’s cut from “Basketball Wives.” Hopefully her cosmetics line Lucid can make up the difference?

J Lo’s new boo thang must be laying some major pipe! What else could explain why the pop singer felt the need to purchase a Bentley for her new 24 year old boyfriend, Casper Smart.
Excuse me, that’s a tad rude. Maybe Casper is really making J Lo happy… emotionally and she just had to show her love for him this way… even though he’s run into some legal trouble for drag racing and driving without a license. Hmmm…
Anyway, get the rest of the story and check out pics of the new ride, here.
