Even though NeNe Leakes made peace with Porsha Williams, she was far from ready to bury the hatchet with Kenya Moore.
In fact, NeNe was so furious that she also lashed out at a producer, yelling and cursing at them for simply doing their job.
It wasn’t that long ago that NeNe allegedly laid hands on a producer during her temper tantrum.
Even so, one brave member of the production team tried to gently encourage NeNe to return to the group during their Greece trip.
“Listen, who the f–k do you think you are?” she demanded to know of the person who was just doing their job.
“Like,” NeNe expressed, “you ain’t going to guard me and tell me what to do!”
See, it all started when NeNe’s friends tried to help her and Kenya Moore make peace.
“I ain’t got time to listen to this bulls–t,” NeNe furiously declared.
She admonished: “I don’t give a damn.”
“I don’t have to be here for it,” NeNe announced, getting up to leave.
“Let me mind my business,” NeNe insisted.
She added: “let me go to the bathroom.”
If a star storms off, cameras follow, but everybody’s allowed to use the bathroom.
But producers know NeNe and how volatile she can be. They wanted to make sure that they knew where she was going.
One brave producer dared to ask NeNe if she was “leaving or going to the restroom?”
“I’m going in the house,” NeNe shot back.
“Listen,” she lectured, “don’t f–k with me!”
NeNe declared: “I’m for real.”
“Don’t play games with me,” NeNe continued to furiously rant.
“I’m going to my room,” she said, “and I’m getting ready to pack and go home.”
NeNe insisted: “I don’t have time for the playing the games.”
All of this from a grown woman who’s going off on a producer for doing their job. Sheesh.
“I’m not doing this,” NeNe reiterated to the confessional camera.
“I’m getting ready to leave,” she narrated, “and go to the bathroom.”
“And I might flush myself down the toilet,” she joked. “Bye.”
NeNe knows that part of her job involves being on camera, and that the producer’s job is to faciliate that. She just wasn’t feeling cooperative.
There was one area where she and Kenya did make some progress, astonishingly enough.
NeNe had told Kenya, back when she was pregnant, that she had looked like she was “going to have a Buffalo.”
Kenya had taken it as an insult of her unborn child, Brooklyn, but NeNe clarifies that this was never her intention.
“I called you a buffalo, I didn’t call your baby nothing,” NeNe explained.
“Let me tell you something, if I called you a buffalo and it hurt you, I apologize,” NeNe told Kenya.
She said that she’s sorry “because I’d never want to hurt another woman.”
“I never called your baby anything and I was mad with you,” NeNe clarified.
“And I apologize if to you ever felt like I was talking,” she added, “’cause I don’t do that to kids.”
“Honestly, I would never say anything where her child is concerned,” NeNe emphasized.
“But when you’re beefing you say all kind of stuff about each other.” she admitted, “I didn’t even realize I had said that.”
Kenya acknowledged the apology but was not ready to accept it.
“It’s done, it’s done,” Kenya announced. “I will never need to go on about it again.”
As we’ve all seen, Joe Giudice has been pretty defensive of his role as a husband to Teresa, even with so many people calling him out.
Now, his brother-in-law Joe Gorga is taking him to task in absentia at the Reunion, saying that he’s known Joe was cheating on Tre for ages.
As you can see in this clip from the Reunion special, everybody but Teresa seems to have it out for Joe Giudice.
Andy asks Joe Gorga if he was familiar with the myriad “cheating accusations against” his brother-in-law.
Gorga pauses for an excruciating amount of time before answering: “Yes.”
After another pause, he adds: “I did, but she didn’t believe it, [so I kept quiet].”
It sounds like he was right to not try to bring it up with his sister.
“Everyone believed it because from seeing the tabloids, and blah blah blah,” Teresa says dismissively.
“Well, this is your brother,” Andy reasons, “so this is more than the tabloids.”
“Yeah,” Teresa acknowledges, “but he never told me.”
“I never told you,” Joe Gorga admits.
Andy’s next question is, very sensible, to ask him if he ever confronted his brother-in-law, man-to-man, to talk about the allegations.
“No,” Gorga replies, “and I’ll tell you why. Because it wouldn’t be nice.”
“It wouldn’t be nice,” he reiterates.
“So if my sister was happy and she believed it, I stayed away,” he reasons.
“But,” Joe Gorga vows, “if my sister called me and said, ‘Joe, I need your help,’ then it would have been game over.”
Obviously, he’s not explicitly saying that he would have inflicted violence upon his brother-in-law.
What we think that he’s saying is that a very serious, heated Joe-to-Joe conversation would have taken place.
Andy then comments that he finds it “interesting” that Joe Gorga was the one who seemed to be trying to level with Teresa and her girls.
He’s the one who was counseling her all season to prepare to let her husband go, to emotionally brace herself.
Andy phrases this as shaking them “loose,” as in snapping them back to reality.
Joe Gorga says that he did this because “I still feel bad for him.”
“I knew this man all my life,” Gorga notes. “I might not like him.”
“I’m going to be honest with you, I might not like him — you think I like what he did?” he asks. “And what he put my family through?”
“I’m very upset but I still feel bad for him,” Gorga explains.
That is an understandable way to feel about a family member or even a friend.
“I didn’t want that to happen to him,” Gorga emphasizes of the deportation.
“And I didn’t want him suffering,” he says, “because I have a heart and I feel for him.”
“I might not like you,” Gorga explains, “but I love you in a way.”
Again, that makes a whole world of sense.
Speaking of the ruins of Teresa’s marriage, she and Joe are currently separated but she has not initiated any divorce paperwork.
Her castmates warn her that this is a mistake, telling her to file now while Joe isn’t asking her for any spousal support.
The fear is that he will change his tune once he sees photos of her dating someone.
We’ve all seen divorces start with an amicable split and nosedive into a legal war.
Part 1 of the The Real Housewives of New Jersey Reunion showed us Melissa Gorga coming for Jennifer Aydin. Everyone was through with her.
This time, it was time for Teresa Giudice to get grilled about one of her most intense feuds … and about her broken marriage.
Part 2 of the Reunion didn’t let Teresa sit there silently while Jennifer goes to war with everyone.
Instead, Andy asked her about the hummus commercial that she filmed for the Superbowl … with Caroline Manzo.
Teresa notes that “of course” she did it for the money. That’s how commercials work.
She confirmed that their feud is anything but quashed.
But Caroline still wants to mend fences, which is when she apparently reached out through her attorney.
Teresa shared that they ended up on a three-way call “and then we got into it.”
“She’s like, ‘When we see each other we are gonna sit down and talk,” she recalled.
Teresa adds: “I was like, ‘Excuse me, we’re not doing anything!'”
A lot of the real questions for Teresa had to do with Joe.
If you haven’t seen Joe Giudice wandering Italy’s deserted streets during the coronavirus lockdown, he’s still there.
Late last year, the Giudices announced their separation.
According to Teresa, their four daughters “don’t love the idea” of this split, “but they get it.”
The subject of Joe’s treatment of Teresa has come up extensively.
The way that he spoke to her and the things that he said while still incarcerated were, frankly, nothing short of cruel.
“I tell my daughters,” Teresa shared, “I say to them, ‘Daddy’s a great father, I don’t want a guy to speak to you the way daddy speaks to me.'”
She advised her girls: “I want you to find a guy who puts you on a pedestal in front of everybody.”
As you can see in the clip that we have included with this post, Teresa is quick to make excuses for Joe, even after the split.
Teresa said that Joe only acted like a douchecanoe for the cameras, that he always “tried to act like this macho guy.”
All eyes turned to Melissa, who shoots that down.
She exposed Joe’s attitude towards his wife and marriage, saying: “it was not just on the show.”
“He hated the cameras,” Melissa Gorga affirmed.
But she accused: “He wasn’t passionate, he wasn’t a kissy guy.”
Teresa protested, saying that she had a “great marriage.”
In a quiet voice, Melissa very gently assured her: “You can do a lot better.”
While Teresa was in the hotseat, she of course got grilled about her alleged boy toy.
But the mother of four was quick to insist that she “didn’t get my pipes cleaned.”
In case it was not clear, she’s saying that she didn’t get her back blown out. Nobody was laying pipe. She didn’t bang him.
“I want to though,” Teresa readily confessed. “I’m dying to!”
“My first guy was Italian, I want my next one to be Jewish,” Teresa expressed.
She shared: “I heard Jewish men make the best husbands.”
(No ethnicity or culture produces ideal or terrible husbands, and objectifying people for their demographic will only lead to mutual disappointment)
Fortunately, Teresa then talks about what she really wants in a new husband.
“I want somebody to talk so sweet to me and gentle,” Teresa expressed.
She added: “I want to be beautiful to him.”
“I’m done with the whole Italian, tough guy. I’m tired of that,” Teresa emphasized.
She expressed: “I want something different.”
While we don’t mean to discourage her from dating outside of her ethnic group, Teresa could obviously find a loving and doting Italian man, too.
To top it all off, Teresa shared that she is open to having a fifth child — so that she can have a baby boy.
Chris Harrison tried to warn us, didn’t he?
All those Bachelor spoilers tried to make it clear, didn’t they?
Heck, even random ABC executives spoke out on Tuesday night’s Season 24 finale, labeling it as dramatic and shocking and unprecedented in the history of this show.
So… did the fiinale live up to the hype? And is Peter Weber now the most villainous lead of all-time?
Following Madison’s decision to leave The Bachelor – after nearly being told to by Peter’s controlling and demanding mother – Tuesday’s season-ended opened with Hannah Ann all stressed out about who Peter would pick.
She didn’t know Madison was no longer an option – and Peter didn’t tell her right away.
Instead, he saved this tidbit for his actual, rambling proposal, which may have been the least romantic request of marriage we’ve ever seen.
And yet: Hannah Ann said yes!
The couple was happy for about .02 seconds, right up until Hannah Ann visited Peter in Los Angeles.
Both sides admitted things had been hard, with Hannah Ann telling Peter she really hadn’t been there for him since the two agreed to wed.
At this, Peter confessed that he wasn’t able to give Hannah Ann his entire heart and BOOM, that was it. Relationship over.
The show then cut to Chris Harrison paying Madison a visit, almost as if this had been in the script all along.
The host filled the virgin in on how Peter and Hannah Ann had gotten engaged and then broken up and asked if Madison was still in love with the pilot.
“I mean, like I know that I fell in love with him and those feelings have not gone away,” she replied.
“But I don’t know where his head is at and what’s going on with his mom right now. I guess it’s just a little confusing to me.”
Harrison tried to make it more clear, telling Madison “I think his dream is he would be with you.”
“I’m like shaking,” Madison said, with a smile. “I mean, if we had a second chance at this, I’d take it in a heartbeat.”
And take it she did, agreeing to return to Los Angeles and fight for the love she thought had died when Peter slept with other women right in front of her eyes and then she got all mad and then his mom bawled over the prospect of Peter ending up with her.
The finale then cut to Madison arriving in Los Angeles, where she found Peter poolside at a home. He pretended to be surprised she was there.
“Chris came and told me what happened and the situation. I just knew I wanted to see you,” Madison explained.
“I fell for you and that never changed and I have been struggling with it ever since I got home until now and what I like felt for you in Australia, literally, like, it has not gone away at all.
“I think in a way I was hoping that it would and I would get closure and I just never did.
‘I know that I still have so much love in my heart for you.”
Peter was in shock. Very happy shock, that is.
“I made a million and one mistakes, but like I know that I fell in love with you and I know that I said that I messed up … and I’m so sorry for that,” he told Madison.
‘But like I just haven’t fallen out of love with you. Obviously we hurt both of each other like crazy and obviously you’re here right now for a reason.”
So, what do we do, he asked… just before ABC went from the finale to the live After the Final Rose special.
“I love Peter and that hasn’t changed since that day in Australia,” Madison said, sitting alongside the pilot on stage and adding:
“And the love and care that we have for one another, I feel like it’s so evident and obviously. …. Those feelings just never went away.”
As for Weber?
“We’ve both been really hurt, extremely hurt … and I know there’s a lot of healing that both of us have to do,” he said.
“But, I’m still sitting here on a couch next to you right now and through everything, that makes me happy.”
“Do you want to give this relationship a real shot?” Harrison asked.
“I think that I know how we both feel about each other and I feel like taking it one step at a time, one day at a time is possibly the smartest,” responded Weber.
And there you have it, Bachelor Nation.
Peter proposed to Hannah Ann in a half-assed manner; dumped her almost immediately; and ended the season simply dating Madison without any commitment to get married.
What a ride, huh?

What you are about to watch is something so different, so emotional, you really have to see it to believe it.
So intoned Chris Harrison early on the first part of last night’s The Bachelor season finale.
Was the host being overly dramatic? Or did the conclusion – not to mention The Bachelor spoilers – the hype for once?
The emotional installment picked up Peter Weber admitting his heart was “split between two women,” Madison Prewett and Hannah Ann Sluss.
How is a handsome, often-erect pilot to make such a difficult decision? By turning to his loved ones.
Mom Barbara dad Peter Sr., and Weber’s brother, Jack, all traveled on Monday eveniing to Alice Springs, Australia, to meet with their relative and his two finalists.
Weber filled them in on everything that had happened so far, including the rough patch he and Madison hit during Fantasy Suite week when the latter sort of sex-shamed the former.
Before meeting the proud virgin, however, Peter’s family were first introduced to Hannah Ann.
“I want you to know how much I do love your son,” she told Barbara through tears.
“And this has been the hardest process for me, to not exactly get that in return.
“This could be our last week together – but at the same time, I’d rather be all in, say how I feel, be completely present, than hold back and be closed off.”
Was she serious about their son? Heck yes, the 23-year old even alleged it was “love at first sight” with Peter, which would mean…
… she fell for him while he was courting Hannah Brown on television?
As you’ve likely read about via Bachelor spoilers, however, Weber was flattered, smitten – and torn.
“Somehow, in some way, I’ve been able to give my heart to two different people,” he said, reading perfectly from every Bachelor finale script and adding:
“And I have one that’s making it easier on me and one that’s making it not so easy. I don’t know how I’m going to do this.”
The followoing day, it was Madison’s turn to spend some time with the Webers, whom she’d already met during her first one-on-one with Peter.
Before she and Peter headed inside, they sat down for a challenging conversation, marking their first real chunk of alone time since she had walked away from their Fantasy Suite date because he had stuck it to other suitors.
“I walked away from our last conversation at dinner really frustrated and really hurt,” she explained to him.
“This is your journey and you are a big boy and you can make decisions for yourself, but I did want you to understand the weight and the gravity and the importance of that week for me, and what I was okay with and what I wasn’t okay with.”
“Up until that point, I hadn’t asked you for anything, I’d only focused on our relationship.”
“I had defended you and trusted you and been there for you and in that moment, I felt like you really just put your feelings and your needs and you wants way above mine.”
Peter said he was sorry for hurting her, but said he also had a concern.
“Maybe you’re not on the level that I’m at with you, and that’s okay,” he said, telling Madison she hadn’t actually expressed deep feelings for him.
“But I feel like [at] this point, with me being so close to this type of decision, that’s something that I should know,” he added.
Madison could barely handle it.
“I feel like I’m kind of hanging on by a thread, if I’m just being honest,” she said. “I need to feel confident and sure and at peace, and I don’t feel that right now.”
The two hugged, Peter urged Madison to stick around and she let her guard down at last.
“As mad as I was with you that night, I didn’t want to leave your arms,” she said.
With this, the pair went to talk to Peter’s family, prompting the most awkward conversation of the finale.
That’s what happens when you need to explain to your potential in-laws that you were mad at their son for having sex with other people.
“I think we have different expectations and I voiced to Peter that personally, it would be hard if he were to sleep with someone else, for me to feel good about continuing to move forward in our relationship,” she said, adding:
“It hasn’t been easy, but I love him, and I do see a future with him, and I could see myself loving him for the rest of my life.”
Peter’s penchant for just pounding away with his penis was also a topic of conversation with his sibling.
“Obviously, you’re very physical in relationships,” Jack told The Bachelor, giving him the following scenario to ponder:
“Let’s assume you go with Madi. So now you’re talking about this whole period of not actually having sex until you’re fully married. Do you think that’s something that you realistically see yourself doing?”
(Editor’s Note: Can Jack be the next Bachelor? This guy is now our hero.)
Peter told his brother it would be totally fine, but Jack emphasized how Madison is a faithful person and Peter likes to party.
Along these same lines…
“I understand that you’re very religious,” Peter’s mom told Madison, continuing:
“Peter, he’s very spiritual, like I’m spiritual. But I just wonder how important it would be for you to have someone that’s on your same level of faith — because [Peter] is completely different.
“And Peter’s lifestyle, I don’t know if you’re aware of it, but he socializes, he parties.”
Just amazing stuff all around here. Peter’s own family is like:
Madison, Pete a total hornball! Get away while you still can!!!!
Madison acknowledges the challenges she and Peter faced, but insisted he was worth fighting for.
Weber’s family, however? They confessed to “a lot of concerns and a lot of red flags” when it came to Madison.
“What an emotional, hard, long, exhausting day,” she said.
“But even though it was really hard, I think it really opened my eyes to a lot that I had kind of been running from. We are on different pages in what we want, what we need, what we expect, how we live — like, literally in every way.”
With Madison left to ponder her future, Peter’s mom was left to plead with her child.
“Madison is a sweet girl, a lovely girl,” she told weber. “But Hannah Ann is an angel on earth. And I want him to make the right choice.”
Cue the speech Bachelor Nation had been watching snippets of for weeks.
“You have a perfect girl right in front of you, and you’re going to risk that?” Barbara begged.
“Hannah Ann loves you with all of her heart. Don’t let her go. Bring her home. Bring her home to us. We will welcome her with open arms. We will welcome her with all the love in the world.
“She’s a dream come true, and God has placed her there for you.”
Peter was pretty pissed off by this speech.
“I don’t have their support with Madison. It sucks, it really sucks,” he said on camera of his family. “But if I can understand it, why does it matter? I’m the one that would spend the rest of my life with her, no one else.”
On a subsequent date with Madison, the brunette made the decision for Peter.
“It’s definitely hard for me to really be fully present in this moment,” she said.
“Because we’re at that place right now where we have fought, we haven’t given up, but I’ve just realized, you know, it’s kind of time to surrender.”
“I think a lot of things have been brought more into focus over the past day or so — like how different we are, when it comes to marriage, when it comes to faith, when it comes to lifestyle.
“I want this so bad but I have to realistic. … I don’t know that we’re the best for each other.”
And, with that, the two hugged, Peter cried and MADISON LEFT THE SHOW.
Peter was crushed and “emotionally drained,” as he told Chris, but, hey: He was still in love with Hannah Ann!!!!
After spending the next morning at a kangaroo sanctuary, Peter thanked Hannah Ann for “never wavering” throughout the process.
But while Hannah Ann didn’t know Madison had left, she did sense that something with Peter was “off.”
That night, he met her in her hotel room and admitted his heart was “being pulled in two different directions.”
“It’s not what I want to hear,” she said, crying, explaining herself as follows:
“It just hurts when I’m so sure and you’re not. That’s what hurts to hear.”
“But I respect your honesty and I know from my standpoint I can’t do anything more.”
She and Peter then embraced and the camera cut to black.
And that’s what we’re left with, folks, with the conclusion to this ridiculous season set for Tuesday night.
What… will… Peter… do?!?
Last week, The Real Housewives of Atlanta viewers watched Kenya Moore’s marriage to Marc Daly implode. It was ugly.
Now, even as Kenya grapples with the emotional fallout, NeNe Leakes feels snubbed and is reading her archrival for filth.
Cynthia Bailey and Kandi Burruss showed up at Kenya’s to touch base with her and offer, if they could, some comfort.
Kenya recounted Marc’s vicious, resentful behavior before, during, and after the charity event.
He was caught on a hot mic badmouthing his marriage to a reality star.
Kenya said that he forced her hand into releasing a statement on the separation … because he made his own unilateral announcement first.
“We went to the event and he seemed very irritated the whole time we were there,” Kenya told her friends.
She described Marc’s behavior as “not loving, not being nice to me, saying little things under his breath.”
“Everything I was doing, it was like an issue,” she lamented.
Folks, this sounds like a description of classic emotional abuse — designed to make someone constantly on edge and desperate to please.
“He ended up getting the the Uber, we took off and then he was just like livid,” Kenya recalled.
She recounted: “He was like, ‘I didn’t even want you to come.’ Somehow I ruined his night.”
“Every time he gets mad, he goes in, he goes for my throat,” Kenya characterized.
She explained: “He can’t stop until he feels like he is just completely destroying me.”
The one piece of good news (other than their marriage falling apart) is that Kenya is adamant that Marc was not physically abusive with her.
Still, she told Kandi and Cynthia “never seen him angry” like he was during their ride home.
Apparently, his behavior was so toxic that even a total stranger wouldn’t stand for it any longer.
“The Uber driver asked him to get out of the car,” Kenya revealed.
Kenya told her friends: “He asked him to leave … it got really out of hand and I told him he can’t come back here, just go.”
In related news, we have never wanted to read an interview with an Uber driver so badly in our lives.
Kenya reiterated that he was not abusive, but admitted that his antics did make her “flash back” to a previous relationship.
For unimaginable reasons, she said that she did not want a divorce, but suspected that Marc was “doing something else.”
She means that Marc Daly was cheating, folks.
“I look around and I see these text messages or whatever,” Kenya confided.
“One of the woman was begging him to keep the sex going even though he was married,” she accused.
“That woman, he still communicates with after I told him ‘This is inappropriate.'”
“I called the bitch too, which I regret that I did,” Kenya admitted. “She answered the phone.”
“I said, ‘You might want to take me off the speaker phone, this is Mrs. Marc Daly.’ And she picked up the mother f–king phone,” she shared.
“And I proceeded to let her know if she came anywhere else near my husband, I know where she lives,” Kenya revealed.
If you’re having to call women you don’t know and threaten them … your marriage is in trouble, and it’s not the stranger’s fault.
Kenya was in such an emotional state that she considered opting out of the trip to Greece.
“The girls, they hate me and they only want to see me fail,” Kenya lamented.
NeNe confirmed her suspicions, mocking her broken marriage and announcing that “karma is a bitch.”
Either in the name of friendship or paychecks, Kenya did opt to go on the trip, flying separately and surprising the ladies in Athens.
Cynthia tried to push NeNe and Cynthia into spending time together and talking one-on one.
NeNe was down for it but Kenya was not.
“She’s really a sad woman,” NeNe complained. “I put all of our drama aside, and as a married woman who has been through things in her marriage.”
“I wanted to just really give her real advice,” she said, feeling slighted. “F–k Kenya, be clear, f–k Kenya and her bad skin, okay?”
“This is the problem, I don’t get ready when she’s ready,” NeNe said.
“We’re not going to eventually have anything, my door is closed, we don’t have to talk ever, I’m done,” she characterized.
NeNe complained further: “She’s right, I’m wrong, I f–ked her man and stole her baby.”
