Earlier this week, it was reported that NeNe Leakes and her husband Greg were evicted from their Atlanta home due to owing more than 6,000 dollars (AMERICAN!) in unpaid rent. But today, she released a statement (Bravo via Dlisted):
The recent rumors alleging that my family faced an eviction are a huge misunderstanding and grossly inaccurate. I am truly blessed to enjoy a wonderful life and lifestyle. We have indeed moved to another home, but we did so on our own free will. We live in an absolutely beautiful home and we are fortunate to be able to live in the place of our choice. Unfortunately, there are many families who are facing real foreclosures and real evictions. That is not and never was the case with us. I know where we live and how we live, and for those blessings I am humbly thankful. It is disappointing that many members of the media have chosen to report gossip instead of news. Without wasting time on the details, the only thing I will say is that we were NOT evicted. Everybody knows that I like to be honest, real and upfront. If something was wrong, I would tell you! Thank you for your well wishes. However, please know that my family continues to be abundantly blessed, and that Miss NeNe has not skipped a beat!
Oh man, she was totally evicted.
I trust that NeNe knows where she lives, and how she lives, but I do not trust that she knows you can’t simply refute something by saying “nunh-unh.” I mean, you can, but that shit doesn’t even fly on the children’s playground. Besides, it was reported in the Atlanta Journal Constitution, an actual newspaper with a fact checking department and real life journalists and everything, not gossipfarts.livejournal.com. If these were just spurious rumors then it would probably be easier to just ignore them, but if you feel that you can’t ignore them then you have to provide evidence to the contrary. I rest my face. Justice in the court!
That being said, homeless or not (A: homeless), NeNe is still my favorite, not least for her charming non-sequiturs. She has not skipped a beat! Whatever that means!
