#RHoA: NeNe Leakes Buys Son Brentt A New Jeep For His 18th Birthday
When normal children get a car for their 18th birthday, it’s usually some hand-me-down, but when a Real Housewife – particularly a very rich bitch like NeNe Leakes – buys her child a car, it’s a BRAND NEW JEEP!
The forever Real Housewives Of Atlanta star’s son Brentt just turned 18, and that was cause for some high dollar celebration from NeNe and Gregg. Apparently it was motivation for that bigger milestone: high school graduation!
I dunno – maybe NeNe did hand over a hand me down car, since Brentt’s new Jeep looks remarkably similar to the one Kim Zolciak‘s daughter Brielle just sold! The “dream car,” which Brielle got for her 18th birthday from her adoring parents (she’s since upgraded to something even more fancy).
“He cried like a baby His fav car on the road and he had no idea,” NeNe added.
Brentt also thanked his parents on Instagram, writing, “Its my Birthday! I wanna thank my parents for getting me the greatest gift in the world. I love yall so much. Couldn’t ask for anything better.”
I wonder if NeNe also gave Cynthia Bailey a new car? After all she turned 50 this weekend! 😉
I also wonder if NeNe managed to repay her ginormous tax debt before splashing out on yet another expensive purchase. I’m sure she’s a rich enough bitch to afford both though!
‘Hidden Figures’ Director On Taraji P. Henson Snub: ‘It’s Disappointing’
Taraji P. Henson turned in one of the best performances this year in “Hidden Figures,” the true story about the black women who were an integral part of NASA’s early space program. Alongside Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe, Henson effectively carries the film as physicist and mathematician Katherine Johnson.
But while the film has received many accolades this awards season, including a SAG award for the cast, some have questioned why Henson did not receive acting nominations at the two of the biggest awards ceremonies of the year: the Golden Globes and the Academy Awards.
Ted Melfi, director of the Oscar-nominated “Hidden Figures,” said that while he was “disappointed” to see Henson receive no major actor noms, he believes the snubs are probably a result of Hollywood politics ― not Henson’s talent.
“Yeah, I was disappointed,” Melfi told The Huffington Post. “But the way it runs is you’ve got to get out there, working the campaign trail. I mean, that’s what I’ve been told ― this is the first time I’ve been through this.”
According to Melfi, Taraji working 17-hour days on the set of “Empire” during awards campaign season probably factored into her lack of big nominations.
“Taraji is on a series... She’s working her butt off on her show constantly. She’s done everything she possibly can to support [the film]. She’s amazing. But at the end of the day, she has a full time job.”
Still, while Henson will not be up for an Oscar at this Sunday’s ceremony, the director believes that her work speaks for itself.
“I think her work in ‘Hidden Figures’ is stunning, and groundbreaking,” Melfi says.
“Anyone who could watch her on ‘Empire’ as Cookie and then see her in [’Hidden Figures’] and not think she’s one of the greatest actresses around ― I just don’t understand that.”
“Hidden Figures” will compete for three awards at the Oscars on Feb. 26, including Best Picture and Best Supporting Actress for Octavia Spencer.
