It's no secret that being a Real Housewife can be a divorce waiting to happen for a marriage that is anything but completely secure, with various and sundry ex-househusbands blaming their divorces on the show.
And, as in the sad case of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Taylor Armstrong and her recently deceased husband Russell, reality TV stardom can become very ugly very quickly.
Hotlanta Housewife NeNe Leakes is in the midst of her own divorce with estranged husband Gregg, but, while he says he funneled a lot of money into creating NeNe's image for the show, NeNe completely absolves Bravo of any responsibility in the matter.
"Me and Gregg had issues before we even signed on to do the Housewives show. I think the show just helped elevate them a little bit. I couldn’t even put it on the show. I wouldn’t allow a show to break me up," she told Sister 2 Sister. "But the show doesn’t help."
Um, are we the only ones completely shocked that NeNe took responsibility for her own relationship here? Considering Real Housewives of Atlanta is the highest rated among the H'Wives franchise, she could easily have blamed the series, like a certain DC Housewife did for her divorce (ahem, Cat Ommanney).
We're totes impressed! (And sorry about your divorce, NeNe.)
