My Favorite Passage of Never Make the Same Mistake Twice by Nene Leakes

My Favorite Passage of Never Make the Same Mistake Twice by Nene Leakes

My favorite passage from, “Never Make the Same Mistake Twice,” is when Nene meets a guy named John and she realizes he is not the one. Nene meets this guy at a club and she gets his name and number. Later on she calls him and they hit it off. So John and Nene made it official that they were boyfriend and girlfriend. After making it official, they attended a relatives birthday party. Afterwards, she spent the night at his house. When getting ready for bed he lays a gun on a night stand. In hindsight, Nene says she should have seen this as a sign that he wasn’t right; but she learned too late.

One day they got into a disagreement but wonderfully made up later on that same day. Then they both went to a party that night. At the party, they both danced and her boyfriend danced with other women. Nene thought it was okay. But a guy asked Nene to dance and so she did. After the song was over and she walked back to her boyfriend, he grabs her, slaps her and loosens her weave ponytail. It was the first time he had gotten physical with her.

Nene got pregnant with her oldest son Bryce the first time they had sex. Five months into the pregnancy, John picked a fight and broke up with her and insulted her by claiming that the baby was not his. Nene learned not only did John get her pregnant, but he also got two other women pregnant. She took a blood test with John which proved Bryson was his child. He had no choice but to accept the fact that it was his son!

When Bryce was five months old, Nene allowed John to see his son when he asked Nene about him one night at a club. It would be John’s first time seeing Bryce. Nene even let him back into Bryce’s and her life. After awhile, John went back to being abusive to her and Bryce and that’s when she reached her cut off point. After all the disappointment, she moved into a condo that she shared with some of her girlfriends and tried to move on.

One night while throwing a party at her apartment, her boyfriend showed up out of nowhere banging and yelling to be let in. So, Nene asked everyone not to open the door. Someone was being stupid and and let him in. John busted in with a pistol and made Nene go with him at gunpoint. They went to his house and he made her have sex with him. Then the police showed up and he got arrested. Her friends and cousin’s had called the police . After that incident, Nene moved with Bryce far away from John and his danger.
