Since the Ebony December/January 2013 issue hit magazine stands last week, many quickly criticized the cover girl. Ebony chose reality star & actress Nene Leakes to be the face of their Money & Power Issue and oddly enough readers didn’t think Leakes was right for this particular issue. Ebony seems to be confident in their decision and hasn’t spoken out too much but we all know Leakes is not as tight-lipped.
Nene doesn’t appreciate the shade thrown her way and is pointing to her very own for all of the negativity. She candidly chatted with The Daily Beast about the criticism and even threw in a Kim Kardashian comparison.
“I absolutely deserve to be on the cover,” she tells The Daily Beast. “This cover is about money, power, and respect. And it’s about a come-up story and I’m the one that had that story this year … Not only did I come out as a reality star that was very boisterous and vivacious and outspoken and all those things. I flipped that into money and respect. And a lot of people can’t do that.
“But listen to me, definitely all of the negative feedback definitely came from my own; African Americans were the ones that were the most negative,” she continues, adding, “And it’s so funny to me because I would call [the editor] over at Ebony and she would say ‘Girl please, glass houses. That’s all it is. They don’t want to see you on the cover, they don’t really understand the reason why you’re on the cover, they don’t know your story.”
“It’s true and I know you’ve heard it a million times, [African Americans] just don’t support one another,” she says. “But it’s OK for you to go pick up a magazine cover with Kim Kardashian. She’s my girl. We are cool. We talk. We do drinks and all of that. But her story ain’t no different than mine. You know what I mean? I might’ve worked at the strip club, but she made a sex tape.”

You may remember back in May when Angela Simmons announced her partnership with Indiqué Hair to launch her own extension line. Well, the day has come! Angela’s “BIKINI” line is now available.
“To me, hair is a statement and an extension of your wardrobe and I’ve always been drawn to fashion and being able to change up my look,” said Angela. She continued, “This partnership seemed natural, much like the naming of BIKINI. A BIKINI is the staple piece during the hot summer months or while on vacation, and the name perfectly describes the beachy texture of my first hair line.”
BIKINI from Angela Simmons by Indiqué Hair is retailing for $210 – $305 per 4oz tube. Indiqué Hair will donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of BIKINI to CancerCare, a national organization whose mission is to provide free professional help to people will all types of cancers through counseling, education, information and referral, and direct financial assistance.
