Nene Leaks on “Watch What Happens Live” 3-1-20

*Nene Leakes and her road dawg Marlo Hampton touched on a variety of topics as guests on Sunday’s “Watch What Happens Live,” including NeNe’s relationship with Wendy Williams, whether or not her recent round of apologies are sincere, and all things Kenya Moore.

Andy Cohen asked the “RHOA” OG if she and her new best friend Wendy Williams are still getting along after the talk show host announced on live TV that she was quitting “RHOA.” Also in this clip are questions about her relationship with cast member Porsha Williams, and if she would stay in her marriage if Gregg spoke to her the way “Ken” is spoken to by her husband, Marc Daly.

Asked again about the state of Kenya’s marriage following the friction shown on last night’s “RHOA” episode, Nene could not bring herself to express any sympathy, unlike Marlo, who seemed genuine when saying that Kenya’s marriage was “sad.”

Nene has been on an apology tour this season, and she swears that her mea culpas are sincere.

On the After Show, the gals talk about fellow castmate Eva Marcille, what past cast members they would like to see return and more.

*British pop star Ed Sheeran is being sued for copyright infringement for lifting parts of Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On” for his track “Thinking Out Loud.” 

The 1973 song was co-written by Ed Townsend, whose family filed a lawsuit against Sheeran in 2016, accusing him of lifting the “melody, harmony and rhythmic components” from Gaye’s track, per ABC News

Sheeran initially responded to the suit by claiming public domain gave him permission to use the chord progressions and drum patterns for “Let’s Get It On.”

During a hearing on Tuesday in front of Sony Records, Townsend’s daughter was joined by music icon George Clinton to fight for Black artists.

“These offenses aren’t just taking place in the streets against black individuals in this country. They’re taking place in the boardrooms. They’re taking place in meetings where there’s no representation,” said Keisha Rice, the attorney for Kathryn Townsend.

“Theft and bullying has been the only priority of the record labels’ agenda. It stops today, Sony, Atlantic and all the rest of them. We’re coming for our 40 acres and a mule plus and interest. And know that we’re not going to be silent. It don’t stop till my casket drop,” said Kathryn Townsend.

“Theft of the music is the new sharecroppers,” said George Clinton. “Not only do they take the music and the land back, they take the 40 acres and the mule back. They get it all from the money that’s being made from IP (intellectual property). So the artists don’t have a chance. I have 20 artists in my band who never got paid for all those samples you heard.”

The hearing for the lawsuit against Sheeran has a trial date set for Nov. 9.

Townsend’s estate is seeking songwriting credit and a portion of the profits from Sheeran’s song.

*Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal are catching heat on social media after saying the police killing of Breonna Taylor is different from George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery.

“It’s just bad the young lady lost her life, but we do have to take into account that her boyfriend did shoot at the cops and shot a cop,” Barkley said during NBA on TNT, referencing Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, who fired a warning shot at people he thought were breaking into the home. 

“So, like I said, even though I’m really sorry she lost her life, I don’t think we can just put this in the same situation as George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery.”

Barkley is now facing a flood of angry comments from social media users. And so is Shaq, after he agreed with the NBA star’s comments. 

“I have to agree with Charles, this one is sort of lumped in,” O’Neal said. “You have to get a warrant signed and some states do allow no-knock warrants. And everyone was asking for murder charges. When you talk about murder, you have to show intent. A homicide occurred and we’re sorry a homicide occurred. When you have a warrant signed by the judge, you are doing your job, and I would imagine that you would fire back.”

Barkley went on to condemn calls to abolish and defund the police.

“I hear these fools on TV talk about ‘defund the police,’ we need police reform and prison reform and things like that because you know who ain’t gonna defund the cops, white neighborhoods and rich neighborhoods,” he said. “So that notion that they keep saying that,  I’m like wait a minute who are Black people supposed to call? Ghostbusters? We need police reform.”

Earlier this year, West was filmed receiving a beatdown on a busy street, and later handcuffed shirtless and bloody on a city curb, shouting expletives. At the time, the NBA, his former coach and teammates spoke out about supporting West and his family.

Following the incident, Aaron Goodwin, West’s ex agent, told TMZ that the former athlete was recovering with family members.

Phil Martelli, who coached West and Nelson at Saint Joseph’s, also wrote on Twitter that he and others “are reaching out to our basketball network to get the professional help Delonte needs. This is so very painful.”

WATCH:

West last played in the NBA for the Dallas Mavericks during the 2011-12 season. He previously told The Post’s Rick Maese that doctors diagnosed his bipolar disorder in 2008.

Boston Celtics GM Danny Ainge said he tried to help West in the past.

“Delonte has obviously some troubles and some trials that he’s trying to deal with in his life, and I just hope that he can fix his life and get back on a good path,” Ainge said in January.
