Saving our Daughters is one charity on the lips of reality stars from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” but not for the disturbing mashup of an “Eyes Wide Shut”-themed fundraiser Kenya Moore concocted, or her Black Swan on steroids face mask, it’s the ill-conceived planning on Kenya’s part in not notifying the guest of honor: Ms. Nene “Imma rich bitch” Leakes of the fundraiser.

Apparently e-vites and word of mouth mentions don’t make for an exclusive guest list. But they do create a scene where Rich Bitch Leakes saunters into the freaky deek fundraiser in a sleeveless liquid dress with a raging pout that would make Posh Spice envious. And a silver tongue to match to give the shortest passive-aggressive speech in history. So much for putting on a good face for charity, despite it being “one of many she supports.”

And the lesson here? well, there’s several:

  • If a fundraiser/party is in someone’s honor, the first invite or call should go to them.
  • Never throw away your receipts, they may come in handy when you least expect it.
  • Don’t let your emotions get the best of you; be clever enough to turn shade into shine for yourself.
  • Finally, don’t forget the charity’s purpose and influence over others.

And to prove how deep Nene’s pocketbook is she pledged to match Kenya’s donation to her fave charity as a peace offering for acting ratchet at a Kenya Moore-endorsed charity event. […]
