NeNe Leakes evicted from rental home

Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes is out of the rental house that she occupied on the series. NeNe “is no longer living at the pricey five-bedroom Duluth residence shown on the series” because “NeNe and her husband, Gregory Leakes, left in November after Winwood Properties filed an eviction notice” which “said Greg Leakes owed $6,240 in past due rent,” the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. That house was a “5,000-square-foot home at 1765 Silvermere Court in Duluth.”

When the paper contacted NeNe for comment, she was rather hostile, and thus her comments are hysterical. Here’s a collection of the partial quotes the paper included, with the newspaper’s [sic]s indicating errors original to her e.mail message, although they missed a few:

“It’s none of your business.”

We “are financial able [sic] and stable to live where ever we feel fits.”

“and you don’t know my relationship with Greg so be careful what you report!”

The house “was a lease purchase corporate deal with Greg & his company. Things didn’t work out between the two of them so they did what they had to do and he did what he had to do.”

“If we rent, lease purchase or buy, money is still coming out of my pocket. So who’s [sic] business is that??”

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
