First off let me say that I was never a true fan of the show. Sure like anyone else I love seeing woman make complete fools of themselves on national television. It is mainly the reason why the show is so popular to this day. However, I must say that the biggest reason I stopped watching the show is because I never felt as if any of the characters truly respected gay men or the gay community. Here and there you would hear side comments about gay men, who appear on the show.
When you think of RHOA the first person to come to mind is NeNe Leaks. After last nights episode I can not find many gay men that still support Mrs Leaks. NeNe is aggressive, witty, down right mean, and gay men love that about her; however, her cattiness was bound to take a turn on the community that serves her popularity the most. “The Gays”
Last night Mrs. Leaks referred to Brandon DeShazer (Kenya Moore’s assistant) as a “queen.” Mrs. Leaks did not call Brandon queen once, but many times. Now this is what you need to know, NeNe wasn’t using the term as a term of endearment, but in a way to push her status above gay men. It was her way of emasculating Brandon and humiliating him. NeNe used that cattiness that gays, straights and woman love so much and turned on a entire community of people who would go to war for her.
Sadly, I believe that this is Mrs. Leaks true form. She has been consumed by wealth and publicity so long that she has forgotten that her fans would come see her work the pole for a few minutes. NeNe has been riding the coat tails of gay america so long that she forgot who truly made her successful. In countless episodes you can hear and see NeNe using gay lingo, imitating gay behavior and it is because of all of these things that gay america has taken to NeNe.
I must say it is good to know that Mrs. Leaks has been getting a great deal of backlash because of her comments. However, she still doesn’t understand why it is “gays” are so upset with her.
Try this Mrs. Leaks, your son who you raised, loved and would do anything for, give him a knife, and turn around and let him shove it into your back.
Thats what you did to us.
