Nene’s Leakes’ half sister is speaking out and it’s not pretty. As of late (and excuse our tardiness) Kenya Kendle Sherman has battled with her sister (or half depending on who you believe) very publicly and is now throwing even more accusations about the Real Housewives of Atlanta break-out star. In a recent interview with Courtney Luv, Kenya dished about how she feels being referred to as Nene’s half-sister, why she disapproves of NeNe’s marriage (both times) to Gregg (she makes an interesting comment about how they met) and her recent run-in with Marlo Hampton. Peep the excerpts below.
Well you know my sister, I believe she has her own issues with our family…Honey, that is my sister, I’m black we don’t say half. We say sister. We share the same mom and we share the same dad. Listen, when people say what they have to say about our family it’s okay. Nene knows and I know. We’re sisters. Maybe because she gone Hollywood now, so maybe now that she’s hollywood, I’m considered a half sister.
I was invited to the first wedding, I just wasn’t in the first wedding. I really don’t know why. That’s a good question, maybe we have to ask Nene one day.
Gregg was a married man. She let the world know, it is what it is, everyone knows that.
Right now we don’t even have a relationship. Right now we’re not communicating. Nene likes it [communication] on blast, she likes everybody to know, this is how she likes it. You know I tried to talk to her one on one privately but she prefers it this way so this is how we communicate.
We grew up together. Nene did live in Georgia with my aunt that is true. We grew up together as far as summers, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, everything. Don’t take it the wrong way we could have lived together in New York but my sister asked my mom could she go to school in Georgia and my mom okayed it. My mom would never ship her kids off.
Yeah she had a fit I guess, I mean it was no shade, Phaedra invited me to her baby’s birthday party. Phaedra was my attorney prior to her coming on the show so we had established a friendship as well as our families know each other from Athens cause she is from Athens. So our families know each other, we were familiar with one another so it wasn’t like strangers…We know each other.
Allegedly, I was kicked out. Allegedly, we had words. No, none of that happened. I went to the event, thinking that I can get some orders for hair…I didn’t want anyone to know that I was her sister and I stressed that to Marlo and she said, ‘Girl I recognize you, I know who you are’and I said, ‘You do? Don’t say it too loud, come to the back, lets talk in the back.’One more thing about Marlo’s event,she did let me know that she recognized what I was saying about what I was saying about my sister, and how my sister is very messy, that let me know that she knew what time it was.
P.S. Don’t they both have an over-the-top, larger-than-life, entertaining personality? P.S.S. Do you believe any of Kendra’s claims?
