NeNe Leakes Says She’s The Next Joan Rivers & Wants To Join Fashion Police!

Now that Kathy Griffin has thrown in the towel on Fashion Police to preempt her imminent TKO due to her lackluster performance — rumors are circulating that hours before Kathy tweeted her resignation [like a true, backstabbing, ungrateful child] producers had a meeting and talked about giving her the ax. Now that Kathy is gone, NeNe Leakes is back on the campaign trail to get one of those coveted first-name-initial pillows.

Why NeNe again? “Because I’m fashionable and I keep it real like Joan,” she recently told TMZ. “I keep it real and tell it like it is and I love [Joan].”

But TMZ could very well be off on the wrong fox hunt because multiple sources claim the show is on the chopping block. And now, fashion-challenged B-listers are siding with Kathy. “Lena Dunham, Rosie O’Donnell and Jane Lynch all tweeted supporting Kathy. That’s not good. Lena tweeted, “She’s modeling a better way for the youths (and working those ears.)” Yeah, because Lena‘s brand of “comedy” — like her grammar skills — is such a sterling role model for young women. As for Rosie and Jane, they have been longtime muses for the most haute couture designers in the world, so their thoughts on who should fill Joan’s shoes are très important. Somehow they all managed to stay quiet amidst the copious black penis jokes Joan  made regarding the Kardashians. Que retenue!

Griffin‘s pre-debut vow to “put the hammer down” was more like throwing cooked spaghetti against the wall to see if it sticks and none of it did. We can’t remember seeing her this unfunny — well, if you don’t count the forced antics between her and Anderson Cooper once a year. Coupled with Brad Goreski‘s pale imitation of a fashion critic — we enjoyed his ineptitude and crying on “The Rachel Zoe Project”  so much more — and Kelly Osborne‘s desperation to be taken seriously, the only one left from the original cast still behaving the same is Giuliana Rancic, whom, without Joan Rivers and the great George Kotsiopoulos, is like the lone goldfish left in a too-small glass bowl, half-filled with rancid water, bravely trying to keep the show from going belly up. But even she is ready to leave Brad clutching his pillow, rockin’ back and forth, wondering where everyone has gone.

While tattooed, purple-haired Kelly, 30, sends out social media messages pretending 18-year-old Disney “performer,” Zendaya, is her BFF and she’ faux-offended about a dreadlocks remark because she also works for Disney, doing the voice of Hildy on The 7D, Kathy is busy trying to spin her way out of humiliation by claiming she couldn’t be herself. Whereas, the late, great Joan Rivers always had a witty riposte, or turn of a phrase, that made you laugh aloud, Kathy‘s comedy has always been based upon “shock-and-awe,” which in this day and age, is no longer shocking and just plain awful. As in boring. As in the biggest sin one can commit in comedy –just ask Joan.

If the show does get a stay of execution, E! should bring on NeNe, because one thing that NeNe ain’t is boring! Just ask her! She’ll tell ya! Meanwhile, we’ll all just be watching Fashion Queens, because those girls are not afraid of insulting anyone!

  • Carmen Mitchell

    I think Nene is a poor choice. If that’s all they have cancel the show.

    • Babson_Chick

      Canceling the show would be the best.

  • Sophia Z.

    Nene is too much of a pain in the butt. She does not have the diplomacy that Joan did in being able to carry off cutting comments. No offense but who would take a ex stripper serious about anything they have to say about Haute Couture? Joan Rivers was the one and only and no matter how hard they try to find a replacement, they can’t. And that Guiliana R. Get her off the TV entirely. She doesn’t even deserve to be in my living room on the television. She’s just awful like a dirty rag.

    • Marsbars09

      Great point Sophia. Joan was one of kind. E! will have a hard time replacing it that’s even possible.

  • OvertheMississippi

    She cannot speak fluid English. She’d be such an unintelligent embarrassment.

    • Lol, OvertheMissippi….they would need sub-titles for her ignorant arse!

      • Marsbars09

        LOL! True dat!

  • Has this ugly ass moose lost her God damn mind? Such a disrespectful thing to say. Moose can’t hold a candle to Queen Joan. RIP Joan.

  • Theresa Herrmann

    I have more fashion sense than this moose!

  • twifan2

    NO! Just no!
    That is so wrong on so many levels!

  • CoolBreeze15

    NEVER! LOL! This show would certainly TANK in ratings if Nene joins. I don’t know why people keep trying to make Nene happen. Nene is NOT liked by the masses contrary to popular opinion! Isn’t it funny how Nene and Porsha are the ONLY cast members constantly trying to make the masses think they have all these projects in the works? LOL!

  • Marsbars09

    Well, it looks like Nene’s dream of being host of Fashion Police is becoming a reality with each passing day.
    I don’t watch Fashion Police, but Nene would be a f*cking turn off if she were to host the show. She’s loud, abrasive, and short-tempered. She doesn’t have the grace nor diplomacy to host a show.

  • RoundAbout

    NeNe the next Joan Rivers? Oh hello no…NO NO NO!!! There has only been one Joan Rivers and though many others have tried to duplicate her comedic genius, none have ever succeeded. This moose is deluded to think she’s going to pull it off. First of all, Joan’s humor was very self-deprecating which endeared her to us before she turned it outward. NeNe doesn’t have the mental or emotional capacity to be able to do that.

  • fred

    nana is about as boring as it gets

  • Babson_Chick

    That is so wrong – to menton Da Moose and fashion in the same sentence!! Just the thought of it makes me thristy – need a stiff one quickly. BBL. Cheers to all the great snarkers and writers on here!!

  • equinox2009

    It should go out of production, hurry. If NENE is “considered” the show will DIE-not even a slow death. Melissa, it’s over. If you bring up Kartrashian and Moose Leaked its a clear sign it’s dead With all the talent around you can come up with somebody certainly not NENE Kenya Moore and Porsha are better choices than NENE (did I just write that!)

  • HoyesMiGente

    Nene. Nene, Nene, Nene. No. Just….no.

  • HoyesMiGente

    And I WISH people would stop calling her moose. That’s a stupid nickname. Call her Nasty Nene, or No-No! Nene, or Noxious Nene. Comment on someones character, not what you perceive their looks to be, It’s obnoxious and prejudiced and ugly to comment on anybody’s looks, especially a woman’s. How were you folks raised? My kids have had that tattooed into their brains….

    • Trippinhhard

      Thank you, I agreed with U— but if Nene calls someone something it’s a big deal..
      Don’t give what U can’t take.

      • HoyesMiGente

        Yeah–but what has she actually called people that refers to their looks? SHe’s usually taking pot shots, and inaccurate ones, at people’s personalities and choices.

    • Bad Barbie

      Yet you are commenting on an article of Nene wanting to be hired for a spot to critique people’s looks. LOL How does that work?

      • HoyesMiGente

        What does your comment have to do with anything I said? Really? Read for comprehension. It has nothing to do with the stupid job. Won’t watch that nonsense anyway. My comment had to do with the boorish and classless comments made.

        • Bad Barbie

          Speaking of reading…you are ranting that people call Nene “Moose” and yet the article is about Nene wanting a job to criticize peoples looks.

          I guess her dream job would be “It’s obnoxious and prejudiced and ugly to comment on anybody’s looks, especially a woman’s.”.


          • HoyesMiGente

            God forbid you rise above you classless pos. Have a beautiful day! Oy gevalt.

  • Bad Barbie

    Nene is not fashionable.

  • Brattus Rattus

    Betty White.
    That is all.
