As Nene goes through the grieving process and coping with the loss of her husband, fans have been the most supportive.

“NOOOOOOOO!!!!! Where is Ne Ne?” a fan asked.

“who is this in the picture? that’s not nene?” a follower also questioned.

“Wow. That’s not Nene,” an Instagram user said.

“Nene no what have you done with those eyebrows. Your smile is beautiful, your energy, face, and body is beautiful, but those eyebrows are wrong. Fire that person,” another fan suggested.

“Drop the photo editing app sis!!!” another follower also suggested.

“Looks like a animated cartoon character!” another Instagram user commented.

There was a conscious fan that asked other fans to stop with the critiques as she was going through an emotional period.

“The woman is in mourning and folks still trolling. Praying that y’all find some real joy and peace in your lives,” the fan said.

“I have good days and bad days, but yeah, they say it’s normal. Some days I’m up, some days I’m down,” she added. “Today I felt like going to the salon, so that was good. I normally don’t go to the salon. I usually let people come to my house. So today I decided to drive to the salon and actually sit in the salon with other women.
