You can take the girl out of Atlanta, but you can’t take the Atlanta brashness out of NeNe Leakes. Viewers have seen the star of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta emerge from breakout scene-stealer to an on the rise sitcom actress. Ms. Leakes has always kept it real with since Day 1, and didn’t care who liked her no-nonsense attitude. What happens when the ladies get on NeNe’s bad side during their visit to Hollywood? Take cover and pray for forgiveness.

Note: Spoilers ahead if you haven’t viewed Sunday’s episode, “Peaches Don’t Grow In Hollywood.”

The ladies headed out to Tinsel Town to visit NeNe where she's working on NBC's The New Normal. NeNe and her soon-to-be husband-again Gregg decided to host a little gathering for the Georgia peaches and their new friends in Los Angeles. Things seemed a bit dicey when the ladies attempted to arrive at their Hollywood Hills accommodations and their stretch Hummer limo was unable to make it up the winding hills. The Southern belles didn’t have to go home, but apparently they had to get up on out of the limo, according to the driver. Uh, hasn’t this driver done this sort of thing before? Are you prepared for anything? With NeNe and her SVU to the rescue, the women were whisked away to their digs and told to be ready for dinner by 9PM sharp.

Later, a jet-lagged Phaedra Parks finally made the trip, after missing the flight with the divas. The gang was clearly tired and not in a mood to see how rich, sorry, VERY RICH, NeNe is living these days, but they decided to put on their best foot and weaves forward to support their girl. Too bad they chose to support her two-and-a-half HOURS AFTER dinner started!

Cynthia tried to call NeNe to let her know they were on the way, but Linnethia Leakes wasn’t having that. She let them know, without hesitation, don’t come to her house! The ladies obviously were looking to get their feelings hurt, because they still headed to Gregg and NeNe’s like nothing happened.

When the women arrived, the Leakes’ met them at the gate and told them they are not wanted at the house and to keep it moving. The women tried to beg, borrow and steal to get inside the house, but NeNe was not trying to hear their sob story. All these women profess to be power movers and shakers in ATL, but nobody has a phone?! Hell, they’re all on Twitter, they couldn’t tweet NeNe to say they were coming late?

As NeNe read the women like a trashy romance novel, Gregg took pity on them and gave them a little tray of food for the road. The women piled into their limo and were stunned by the firm hand NeNe just smacked all over their faces. They commiserated on the evening’s events at Fat Burger. Welcome to Los Angeles, girls.

Buzz Moments

OMG!: Porsha was unable to make INSTANT coffee. Really girl, it is not that hard.

Thank you, TV gods.: Gregg telling NeNe to forgive her friends for being late to dinner. They were late to dinner, not to a wedding.

Awk-ward: Kenya finding out her ex, Walter, attended Porsha's  husband Kordell's birthday party and she wasn't invited.

Hotness: Kenya's abs. Dear God in heaven, those things are amazing.

Fab-u-lous: Porsha had a little backless blue number on during the gals' dinner. Now, that was a show stopper.

Can. Not. Wait.:  The remaining trip to L.A. and DYING to see NeNe and Porsha's dust up in Las Vegas.

    Yeah they are NeNe's friends but they couldn't call her to say they would be late? A text/email/tweet, heck a smoke signal? That was rude. They didn't know if NeNe went to bed right afterwards and just came there like nothing happened.

  • Melrose

    Wrong. NeNe was wrong. Yes they were late, but if they're truly your girls...you can hang all night...come on NeNe is putting on airs. Get real.

  • lizza

    LoL U know stupid Cynthia...NeNe could slap the living crap out of her and she would still kisssssssup to NeNe because she thinks NeNe has influence to get her a role some where in Hollyland..and she would leave Peter in a heart beat!!!!!!

  • lizza

    I don't blame NeNe but Sweet Jesus when they called and she said, don't come...I wouldn't have showed up. And again it's her home not a night club!

  • juana

    I don't blame Nene at all. It was rude and disrespectful of them to even think that it was okay to arrive at her home three hours late.

    Better, I can't agree with you more. If they were going to be late, the ladies could've at least text NeNe to say they were going to be late. That was beyond rude.

    I agree with you, Betty. It may have been uncomfortable to watch and embarrassing for the girls to be turned away, but NeNe had every right -- and I respect her for not being passive aggressive about it -- to tell them it was too late to arrive to her home.
