“I DID NOT Write The Questions”: NeNe Defends Herself From People Blaming Her For Pillow Talk Melee
One interesting thing that always comes out of an episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta is the responses the women of the show have to their behavior when they take to the Bravo RHOA blog on Monday or throughout the week. After weeks of drama now that the infamous Pillow Talk brawl has aired, different cast members blamed one another for all that went on that night, including Apollo beating up Kenya’s assistant Brandon, and Kandi going at it with Cynthia, Peter and Malorie. While NeNe loved blaming Kenya for everything, many viewers actually blamed her, claiming she stirred the pot with her line of questioning at the event, and through her choice to put Kenya on blast, forcing her to deal with what she said about Natalie and Christopher’s relationship. NeNe responded to her detractors for a second time, and says that people need to quit playing and see through the B.S.:
I created this game called “Pillow Talk.” It all started from Gregg and I basically discussing our day or any issues we had with each other at the end of our day once we got in bed at night. Obviously this party is for adults only with adult topics and content that build unity, start conversation and debates between couples, friends, and even strangers! All the guests that were invited knew in advance what the dress code was and what my intentions were — to build unity within the group.
Yes, questions were being asked that some were uncomfortable with! I DID NOT write the questions, but I asked them, so blame me for that! I’ll accept that! I’ll even accept you saying I stirred the pot, but I can’t take the blame for uncontrollable adults picking up their fists to fight. Everyone is responsible for their own actions! Well, how do you have a debate without controversy? I guess you don’t! I don’t want to rehash this conversation any more than I already have. I already stated that Kenya charged out of her seat, and whether you could see it or not she did, and I stand by that! I also said Christopher NEVER touched her in an aggressive way. He was only trying to stop her from charging his wife, and I stand by that! I’m the first to tell you that a man should never touch a woman aggressively, and he didn’t! The rest of the ladies on the cast have spoken, so I rest my case.Thanks to those of you who support me week after week and know that I keep it real and thanks to those of you that can see through the BS. For those of you that CAN’T see through the BS, try Visine, it gets the red out #shade.
Leakes did have one more thing to say though, in reference to her calling Brandon a “queen” non-stop last night, which some people found offensive (almost as offensive as I thought it was that they were calling each other “thugs” and “gorillas” all last night…).
P.S. Did I hear someone say I was “gay bashing” because I called Brandon a queen? Really? Bravo has a show called Fashion Queens with two very out gay men in women’s clothing, makeup, jewelry, and high heels! Are they “gay bashing”? Try something else, boo, because that won’t work! Girl, bye.
Cynthia also took to the Bravo blog to apologize for her own behavior, and that of her man, Peter, and sister Malorie when it comes to how they dealt with Kandi, and how she was all in Kandi’s face:
In hindsight, I guess I was too much in her personal space. It didn’t feel like it to me at the time, but looking back at it all, I guess I was. We both talk with our hands, and I didn’t realize at the time that I was using mine any more than she was using hers. I also did not feel that when Peter walked up and asked what was going on that he was necessarily aggressive. I do know that anytime a man is addressing a woman (and it’s not all fun and giggles), it never really looks right.
I definitely didn’t know until I saw it on tape that Mal pushed Kandi. I actually didn’t believe it until I saw the tape, because I just don’t remember it happening. I thought Mal was trying to keep Peter and Todd from getting into it by pushing them apart. Mal did tell me that in that moment Todd pushed her, and she instinctually pushed him back. Then all hell broke loose from there. Remember, Mal is my sister first and foremost. She is just as protective of me as the other ladies’ families are protective of them. Just like the other incident, it all happened so quickly it was hard to know who pushed whom and when or why. We may never know exactly how it all started, I am just glad that it is over.
Interesting responses to everything. What do you think about what the ladies had to say?
