NeNe is leaving her RHOA co-stars behind in the dust; she got a gig as an E! guest fashion commentator for the Emmys. She may be on to something.
NeNe dissed damn near everything that hit the carpet and co-hosted with Jay Manuel who was outshined by NeNe’s hood mentality and witty commentary:
Jay: “One of my favorites, Debra Messing, you know you know how to do fashion for me, baby. Tonight, this dress, it’s beautiful. You cannot say it’s not a beautiful dress. But safe. Debra usually gives me a statement.”
NeNe: “To me, Debra’s looking really plain and simple. Really, she could have just put that on and went shopping.”
Jay: “Shopping where?!”
NeNe: “At the grocery store. I mean, really, it’s just really plain and simple, though, Jay. It’s not bam, hot. Debra Messing, I would expect her to be fly.”
Jay: “That’s not a grocery store, this is when you go to the (red) carpet. It’s safe.”
NeNe: “Listen to me!”
Later, when Jay started gushing over Stephen Moyer of HBO’s vampire series “True Blood,” NeNe set him straight.
“Black girls are not into vampires, honey. That’s a white girl thing.”
And poor “Gossip Girl” Leighton Meester didn’t escape NeNe’s no-nonsense observations, either.
Meester showed up in a white, low-cut gown with two huge, uh, things on the shoulders.
Jay: “I like this Grecian dress. What do you think?”
NeNe: “I think the shoulder pads are huge.”
Jay: “Those are not shoulder pads. Those are stylish knots.”
NeNe: “Well, those knots, you can climb a mountain with those knots.”
Aside from doing fashion commentary at the Emmy’s, we hear NeNe is also about to launch a shoe line:
“I’m currently working on a shoe line,” NeNe says. “I’m doing it with a company out of New York. I can’t talk about it too much because we haven’t sealed a deal yet, but we’ve been meeting.”
